SYNDICATE TO PUSH
Italian Inventor Looks to America to Exploit Project in
Rest of Civilized World Claims No Limit on
, . Carrying Distance.
ROMK. Nov. 17.-Dr. Hlccardo Mo.
rcttl, the Inventor of wireless telephony.
Is a modest man, twenty-six, a Roman
ly birth, and nephew of Dr. Marchla
fava, who attended Plus X during his
Illness last year.
Morettl, though n student of medicine,
has been studying for eight years tho
problem of applying thn Mniconl sys
tem to tho telephone. He has kept his
labors a secret, but ho has been greatly
helped by the government, which has
given free use of the mllltury radio
telegraph stations In different parts of
Italy for his experiments.
An nlready stated, the general princi
ple of the Invention Is to set up u suc
cession of electric waves which follow
each other with tho samo speed as tho
vibrations of tho human olee, and
transfer these vibrations to a receiver.
Syndicate Being Formed.
Although the Inventor has made n free
gift of his discovery to the government,
a powerful syndicate Is being formed
to turn to commercial use thu putent
wh'lch has been taken out, both with
foreign governments and for private In
dustry. Moretll has gone to Paris to
confer with the French authorities, and
the other European countries will be

llefoie departing Morettl said:
"I want to explain that the chlf
feature of my Invention or discovery,
bv whichever nume ou tall It, Is that
It will enable the human voice, and In
fact every other sound, to be tr.ins
.,i.t,i tr, riiMinnrt's to which them Is
practically no limit. Wn talk now with

It must he noted thut for ordinary
Intel urban work and short distances
my system doei not supplant that of
the telephone as It now exists. Tho
revolution worked by the electric tele
graph will be small eompaiid with
that of my dlscoiery when It has lie
eomo established. We look largely to
A merlin, the pioneer of new Ideas and
new Inventions .to take up tho matter
where I leave It."
Values Patent at $5,000,000.
Tho Italian company fnrmid to ex
ploit the pntrvt Is under tho direction
of Mr. de Jongh, director of the Anglo
Italian Klectrlc Company, which sup
plies Rome with light.
Speaking of the Jrojcct, Mr. dc Jongh
"Roughly speaking, the company
values the patent nl r.m,ono, with a
third Interest lu the concess'onaiy rnm
lany that buys. Hut this It not glien
us a filing price. Wn hale a good
thing i.nd are In no hurry to dl'pine tit

The Amer(ran flag will fly over the

Cuba, and Progrcsslo In the State of
Yucntan, Mexico. New York Is the

Thr T'nltcil States Supreme Court has
Km put In n peculiar predicament by
the action of Judgo Carpi liter, nt Chi
cago, In releasing Jack Johnson, the
pugilist, on ball.
Judge Carpenter has acted while tho
application to tho Supreme Court for
release 011 lull Is pending. Johnson's
attorney last Monday moved that John
son bo admitted to ball on tho ground
the $,() ball fixed by tho court nt
Chicago was excessive and for other
leasons. The court has not ruled on
Solicitor General Hullltt, for tho Gov
ernment, opposed allowing cash ball or
allowing leal estate surety If It appear
id the numi nf tho real ertate was In

between tho New Haven and tho Grand
