Company, which Is the new combina

the establishment of a wireless tele

Wireless telephones are already in
existence in a few spots and are some
times used with success between ships
of war, and Isbell's recent wonderful

Wlrschuleit was subpoenaed by the

the time of the murder. He was told
that his presence would berequired

the trial took place. He was also told
that the easiest way to make sure or

wireless telephone system between Ho

things soon to become a fact.
Hutchlns stated today that he had
been kept busy over since it was an
nounced that the automatic telephone
was to be Installed here.
"Prominent business men of- this
city," says Hutchlns, "have hunted me
up to sign contracts for the installa
tion in their places of business and
homes of the new automatic. People
of this city are falling over each other
to arrange for the installation of the
new phone. Everybody appears more
than anxious to be assured that they
can secure one of the new phones.
"We have the rights for the wireless
telephone also, and when the time
comes may instnl inter-island tele
phones." Hutchlns states that the engineers
who will have charge of he under

automatic will arrive here and begin

pear when wanted, he was allowed to
go to the Coast on his vessel.
It appears that he decided that his
promise was worthless, for he told his
shipmates when the vessel was but a
few days out, that he could not be
bluffed by any marshal or police offi
cer and' would not come back. Sure
enough, he failed to appear when
wanted. Now he will be arrested and
will find out that the arm of the Fed
eral Court ot this district Is one which
can reach even across the seas and
can punish those who disregard It.
The warrant will be Issued this af
ternoon by Judge Dole, upon an affi
davit sworn to by U. S. District Attor
ney Breckons and will bo given to
U. S. Marshal Hendry for service. The
latter will cable to the U. S. Marshal
in San Francisco, who will apprehend
his man and then arrangements will
be made to bring him to this city,
where he will bo tried for contempt.
