FRENCH BUSINESS MEN

Srrul Cable to The Vihwcton HrrmM.
Paris, May 9. The delay of the French

able event of failure. I am Informed on

manufacturers representing the cream of
French industry, all Intent upon seizing
the opportunity for extending their com
mercial relations with America, which
the exposition will afford, and who arc
understood to be now engaged In doing
certain preliminary work In connection
with the French section.

commerce this week and discussed with
him the measures that already are being
taken. The minister assured him the
government is now determined to send
an official representative) to San Fran

taining the latest Improved wireless ap
paratus has been set about midway in a
big six-cylinder White auto-truck, which
carries in boxes at each side, a jointel
portable aerial reaching S3 feet Into the
air when fully extended. The electric
power for the wireless Is furnished by
the motor of the truck In direct connec
tion with an electric generator, supplying
enough current to light the mounted
wireless room and run the Instruments
at their full capacity. The apparatus
has a range of 4W to S00 miles in send
ing, and of nearly 2.500 miles In receiv
ing. The machine Is for service at the
army's? general headquarters giving the
commander of forces easy communication
with a fleet at sea, or with any of the
small portabl field instrumentss carried
by sections of the Signal Corps.
In recent preliminary tnils the machine
wasv subjected to strict tests. As soon
