FORM WIRELESS TRUST
1
Marconi and American De Forest
Systems Merged.
* Tapers of Incorporation were filed yesterday at
Augusta. Me., for the United Wireless Telegraph
Company, being a. merger of the Marconi and Amer
ican Do -Forest systems. The new concern is to
have a capital of s:'o.OX>,0 1 » and represents what has
been referred to as th»» "Wireless Trust," although
Abraham "White, president of the De Forest com
pany, and also president of the new enterprise, said
yesterday that he preferred to have the now cor
poration known as a union, and not a trust
The object of tho United Wireless Telegraph
Company will be. to aoqulro the latest and most
Improved inventions employed In telegraphy and
con*'-"* its development and expansion through
out the world. While no promise is now made that
the wireless system will immediately- supplant the
Western Union end rostel systems, the officials
believe that this will eventually happen, and promise
that the rates shall be 20 per cent cheaper than for
service over the lines of the latter two companies.
Mr. Whit* said:
The largest and mort important interests In both
the American De Forest find Marconi companies
are in favor of tne union 01 wireless interests, and
to illustrate this In the case of the Marconi com
panies I may point to the attitude of the bankers
and brokers who for years have been advertising
and lling Marconi securities, which will now be
discontinued, as they are turnins over all their
holdings in the Marconi company and will _ now
support the United company. It is the majority
of stock that counts in both eases, and the local
management of the Marconi company has abso
lutely nothing to do with the negotiations. The
American Marconi company I* owned by the parent
Enplish Marconi company. Even the management
Of the parent English Marconi company owns only
a few chares, comparatively, of that company a
stock. Marconi himself, according to the stock
books and stock lists in my possession, owns less
than 8 per cent of the English Marconi company.
It takes only 51 per cent 10 control and unite..
A much larger per cent than this of all the lead
ing wireless companies Is (strongly in favor of the
union of Interests. The attitude of our own pov
««rnment as well ps other government? interested
In wireless telegraphy, shows strongly in favor
of the United working management in wireless
telegraphy the Interests most affected are. The
Berlin conference, where the world's wireless con
gress was recently held. made Important recom
mendations in regard to the Interchange of wireless
messages throughout the world.
Mr. White expressed the opinion that the Eng
lish Marconi company, which controls also the
: Canadian company, and has a capital of £500.000,
will add its working capita", to the new enterprise.

"DYING CRIES HEARD."
So Prosecutor Declares at Gillette
— Jury Complete.
Herkimer, N. V.. Nov. 17. — That the dying cries
ef Miss Grace Brown were heard by a witness who
will be called by the state in the trial of Chester E.
Gillette, charged with the murder of his sweet
heart, was the declaration of District Attorney
George B. Ward, who made his opening speech to
day. After describing the trip of the prisoner and
Mini Brown to Moose Lake, from the waters of
which the girl's body was later recovered, and a
struggle on the shore, the prosecutor added:
"And that night, as he struck that girl, and her
lan death cry echoed over the lake, there was a
witness to ell that, and she will be here to tell you
about It."
The prosecutor's remarks created something of a
sensation, as It was the first Intimation that the
state would rely on other »h"an circumstantial evi
dence to convict Gillette. The general Impression
In the courtroom appeared to be that the witness
referred to had actually witnessed the death scene,
but to-night Mr. Ward said that he did not mean
to convey th* suggestion that be had secured an
eyewitness of the tragedy. The prosecutor would
not reveal the Identity of his witness, who, he said,
was a woman. At the cession to-day, which closed
at noon, when adjournment was taken until Mon
day, the twelfth juror was secured in the porson
of Elvah B. Potter, of H*rklmer. and the state
opened its rase.
The boy prisoner was composed enough to-day,
and throughout the severe arraignment of the J>is
trlct Attorney exhibited little feeling. The mother
and sisters of the dead ifirl were In court, and
W|K hysterically at time*.
The prosecution spoke for an hour in outlining
the state's case to the Jury. Grace Brown, he said,
was the poor daughter of a hardworking farmer
and went to Cortland to earn her living. There
she met Gillette, who often chatted with her -at
the factory of his uncle, where he was a foreman.
He ad«3ed :
So, as time drew along, as a million other girls
have done, she gave htm aIL Afterward the girl
found that she was to become a mother. la tho
■Man time hl« uncle's position had admitted Gil

which the factory girl moved. The girl beean to

HALF AS MANY LOCALS.
Interborough to Make Patrons Suf
fer for Express Extension.
Tn compliance with the order of the Rapid
Transit Commission, the Interborough company
will to-morrow morning extend Its subway ex
press sen-ice on the Broadway line from With
street, where it ends at present, to ISTth street.
This announcement was made by General Man
ager Frar.k Hedley last night. In a statement in
•which he says in substance, "We're going to do
this bfeotUM we have to, but you'll be sorry."
Apparently Mr. Hedley's troubles are not over,
because Reginald P. Holton, secretary of the
Washington Heights Taxpayers' Association,
which started the agitation for the extension of
the express service, sr. ys his organization does
not propose to remain satisfied just because It
has accomplished its first object. He indicates
that the resident* of Washington Heights wtll
not (submit quietly to the decrease in the num
ber of local trains brought about by the exten
sion of the express service. The association also
wants better service through to Klngjsbridge.
The following announcement of the extension
of the express service has been issued by the
Interborough:
Beginning on Monday. November 10. 10*10,
southbound Broadway express trains from 221 st
street and the Ship Canal, between Hie hours of
7:20 a. in. and 838 a. m., will be operated
through the centra track southbound from the
switches south of 137 th street to 100 th street
Northbound Broadway express trains for
221 st street and the Ship Canal leaving South
Ferry at 4:54 p. m. to 6:18 p. m., will enter the
centre express track at lWth street and Broad
way, passing through the centre entering the
main line at the switches south of 137 th street.
These trains Will be designated by carrying the
regular two red signal markers on top of the
loading motor car. and a red lantern wtll be car
ried on the front end of the train in the centre of
ear platform.
Trains marked as above will not stop for the
purpose of receiving or discharging passengers
at Manhattan street, llfith street. 110 th Btreet
or lOSd street stations, in either direction.
Mr. Hedley • prefaced his statement by saying
it was mad- In anticipation of "the howl the
residents using the subway between and Includ
ing the 103 d street and Manhattan street sta
tions would raise when they found their service
of local trains cut in half." After saying that
the extended express service will be started to
morrow "in accordance with an order issued by
the Board of Rapid Transit Commissioners," Mr.
Hedley rehearses the objections made by the
company to the proposed service, saying:
The company's operating officers objected to
the operation requested on the third track be
tween 137 th street and 145 th street, as it was
not considered safe with their present facilities.
The Interborough's operating officers further
stated that in their opinion the use of the third
track for express purposes morning and night
on Broadway between 137 th street and lOOth
street would result in inconveniencing a very
largo number of people in order to slightly in
crease, to the degree of about one and one-half
minutes, the efficiency of the service for a
smaller number of people.
The Interborough's operating officers further
pointed out thai It was a question whether It
would be possible to gain even a minute and a
half f<>r fhe passengers patronizing its Broad
way division in the north end by the Introduc
tion of this service, cm account of the existing
conditions on the 96th street Juncton. both in
reference to the tracks and the additional trans
ferring of passengers, which the above service
will create, because of the fact that each of
these express trains, southbound and north
bound, will not be able to accommodate the
large number of passengers using the stations
at 103 d street, 110 th street. 116 th street or
Manhattan street without a change of cars.
Referring to the fact that the local trains be
tween and Including the 103 d Btreet and Man
hattan avenue stations will be decreased with
the beginning of the increased express service,
Mr. Bolton. of the Washington Heights Tax
payers' Association, said last night:
The attitude of the Interborough officials
toward this matter does not Indicate that they
Intend to make a vigorous effort to Improve the
present unsatisfactory conditions in our part of
the city. They say that there, is not enough
traffic from the section about 96th street on to
Klngsbrldgo to justify bettor service than is
now given. Of course, there isn't, and never
will be, until the mad provides a service to en
courage traffic. People at that end of the line
are sometimes compelled to wait eighteen
minutes for a car."
NO UNION RATES FOR ARMY BARBER.
Recruit Who Refused to Shave Below the
/J Scale in Guardhouse.
Columbus. Ohio, Nov. 17.— John McCnnnaghan,
a recruit at the barracks here, is a union bar
ber. Because he refused to shave his fellow
soldiers for a nickel and cut their hair for a
dime, which Is under the union rates, he was
called before the commanding officer and was
severely reprimanded. He was obdurate, and
was then placed in the guardhouse.
Every soldier must be shaved twice a week
and must have his hair cut once a month. Th«
barber gets half the proceeds. As there are
twelve hundred men and only two barbers to
serve all of them, the place of barracks barber
pays well. McConnaghan could ' /c made $40
a week, but because the fidelity to his union
was involved, he scorned the money.
WILL NOT FORM EXPRESS COMPANY.
Boswell Miller, chairman of the Board of the Chi
cago, Milwaukee & St Paul Railroad, denied yes
terday a report from Chicago that his road was
planning to handle Its own express business on the
convict'" ll of Its Pacific Coast extension, and
would for that purpose organize a $30,000,000 ex
press company, an the Rock Island Interests re
cently organized the North American Express
Company. The United States Express Company
handles the St. Paul's express business, under a
contract running until January 1, 1908. This con
tract,- however, is terminable by the railway com
pany' on ninety days' notice.
NO CHANGE IN FRENCH LINE.
It is authorltatlvel/ denied that there is any
truth in the report that control of La Compagnie
Generals Transatlantlque will pass into the hands
of Charles W. Morse. Rtieh a transfer would be
prevented by the fact that the French government
exercises control over this company.
