COLLINS WIRELESS TELE?
Representative of Company Has In?
struments in City and is Demon?
strating Their Practical Use to
Mr. M. L. Kosenwald, of Charlotte,
N. Cm representing L W. Gregory,
sales agent for North and South Car?
olina of the Collins Wireless Tele?
phone Co., is in the city for the pur?
pose of the practical success of the
Collins Wireless Telephone and will |
remain several' days. He has office
room with Mr. J. C. Huger, on the
second floor of the Sumter Clothing
Co., building, at which place he will
be found during business hours. He
will take pleasure In demonstrating
the use of the telephone in a manner
that will convince the most skeptical
that It is possible for the human voice
to be transmitted for great distances
without wires. Mr. Rosenwald says
that wireless telephone systems are
now in every day operation at Port?
land, Me., between Philadelphia and
New York and at a number of other
places. The United States navy de?
partment has equipped the warships
with wireless telephones, while the
Pennsylvania railroad has had its
vessels equipped. Wireless telephony
has passed the experimental stage
and is now becoming a commercial
proposition in competition with the
Bell and Independent telephone sys?
tems depending upon wires for the
tracmisslon of sound.
While Mr. Rosenwald makes no
long distance tests, he demonstrates
very clearly and convincingly that the
Collins instruments transmit speech?
that the spoken word can be heard
as distinctly as over the best Bell or
Sumter telephone, and that neither
distance nor obstructions, such as
wooden or brick walls interfere in the
least with the wireless transmission of

While keg beer and all opened bot?
tles of whiskey will be destroyed in
accordance with the act, the goods
which are captured In unbroken j
packages will be sold through the
dispensaries and there is now a lot
of contraband liquor awaiting pur?
chasers. The atock of seh.ed goods is j
estimated to be valued fit between

goods which have been seized during

Charleston Almost Dry.
Charleston, Aug. 29.?This has been
the dryOSt Sunday in the history of
Charleston in many years. The heavy
seizures of contraband liquors by the
constables and police during the past
week severely taxed the stock which
the blind tigers carried and many
people were turned down today when
they called for drinks and especially
for Deer. The social clubs were about
the only places where beer was avail?
able and in these places the stock was
not any too large. With the reopen?
ing of the dispensaries tomorrow the
thirsa will be met to some extent.
