TELEGRAPHING WITHOUT WIRES.
Hertzian Wnvr Are to lie Matlu to
Uo tlio Work.
To Rlrdtc the earth with telegraphy
Arltbout the use of telegraph wires lias
been tbo dream of many nil electrical
Inventor. Am yet wireless teleKraphy U
lu Its Infancy that will ki'ow, however,
and one day lu the couiIiik century the
infant may become a tflant that will
bowl tho world down the rlUKlui;
Krooves of ehatiye.
The latest scientist to plunso Into the
sea of wlrelcNs telet-.iphy Is a yoiins
man named Marconi, who has recently
evolved a system of telegraphy with
out wires, which depend not on electro
magnetic but on electrostatic effects.
That Is to say, the new nyxtem I based
ini Hertzian wave, which have n vi
bration of not lest than 2.10,000,000 a
Hccoud. Ills theory, and sonio success
ful xporlment ho conducted, wero re
cently discussed in Grit.
These Hertzian wave nro to elec
tricity what the X rays nro to visual
perception; but unlike tho X ray, they
do not die out easily. They simply take
bold of ono end and shako Into wave
of an electric Htream so lutlnlteslmally
small and keen that It would tako tho
t-ar of a fairy to hear that magnetic

through space lu straight lines, but,
like light, they nro capable of reflec
tion and refraction, anil scientists have
based their dreams of wireless telcg
inphy. With tho fact that tho Hertzlaii
waves exhibit all tho nlienoniena of
light beforo them, tho scientists have
gone to work t construct Instruments
that will handle ihuo waves as helio
graphs handle the rays of the sun.
Hut the great dlfllculty with Hertzian
waves Is that tho waves will follow the
rtirvntiiro of tho earth's surface. In
this respect they are related to the X
rays, which, lu fact, seem to be a sort
of Illuminated electricity. Tho point to
overcome In telegraphing long distanc
es without wires I to obtain sutliclcnt
elevation to overlap tho curvature of
the earth's surface, and to reduce to
h minimum th earth's absorption of
the electric current.
If tbo terrific Impulse of these Hertz
tan waves I not overestimated, a sort
of mountain telegraph might be estab
lished from Washington territory to
Nicaragua, and, with a few towers,
even to the lower part of Chill and Pat
agonia. This may be an exaggeration, but
the fact remains that many scientists
Hie so thoroughly convinced that tho
use of atmosphere and earth currents
of electricity Is practicable that tbey
tiro working with might and main to
bring about the desired end. In a re
cent Interview Marconi said:

Politic Arrested (ionta.
Three goats wero led Into tho city
court room nt Yonkers, N, Y by two
pollcomou. Following them wero their
ownors nnd three sympathizer who
also own goat. Judge Kellog was
surprised and startled by the proces
sion, and tho excitement In tlio court
room was Increased when ono of tho
long-halrod animals begun to Dl en t. Tho
efforts of tho otllccrs to abate the nolso
were una valllng.nnil presently thcothor
goats chimed in. They wero Dually
taken to the police stable.
It was then learned that the men nnd
goats were thcro on the complaint of u
Mr. Gabriel, who lives on Pnrk nvenuo.
He was about to start for business on
Wednesday morning when ho was mot
nt tho door by n largo "Hilly," Ho
opened his silk umbrella and the ti t
promptly butted n hole through It and
lauded Mr. Gabriel on his back. Then
two other goats attacked him, and the
cook had to come to tbo rescue with a
rolling-pin, Ho then caused the arrest
of tho animals and their owners. Tha
Judge dismissed them all with a warn
