pride. What he did was picturesque;

By and by. when this war is ended
and public opinion is less effusive. it
will occur to all of us. as a sober second
thought, that. as for results, the
game in this case was hardly worth the
candle. That is not Hobson's fault, of
course; but the sinking in the entrance
to antiago harbor of a collier blockade
that was simply no blockade at all, is a
diletante incident that served its useful
purpose, so far as public opinion is con
earned, at a time when we really weren't

may be those who in these fervent days
are persuaded that the claim thus set
up for the Hobson adventure is well
sustained-history certainly will not
write it that way. Nevertheless, all
honor to Hobson: he did a plucky thing;
be did it like a stout-hearted hero.
The Hobson affair occurred a little
more than a month ago. Hobson is a na
val constructor. His superioroficers con
cluded that it would be a good scheme
to cork the bottle-to shut Cervera in
by sinking a craft in the harbor's en
trance. The boat chosen was the Mer
rimac. formerly an English collier for
which the government at Washington
paid, so it is alleged, a suspiciou-ly high
figure. In broad daylight, on June 3.
Hobson and seven other men courage
ously ran the Merrimac right under the
fire of the Spanish forts guarding the
harbor and sank her there. From the
foundered craft Hobson and his little
band found flight impossible in any di
rection except straight into the arms of
This display of personal courage thal
lenged the admiration of Cervera who

ERVERA'S telegram to Blanco is
a suggestive document-it has a
snappish sound. The defeated
admiral evidently li willing to let the
world know that his orders to move out
of Santiago harbor came from Blanco
"in compliance with your orders." he
wires to Blanco. "I went out of the har
bor," the admiral adding that he met
a force three times his own, that his
squadron was destroyed and that the
loss of life was terrible.
In Cervera's message there is an I
told-you-so tone. The assumption is
warranted that Cervera sailed out be
cause. under Blanco's orders, he was
compelled to; between the lines of the
dispatch printed this morning one can
easily read the words in which Cervera
says to Blanco: "You meddled, by your
foolish orders, with the movements of
my squadron, and now you've got your
pay for it."
Think of the immensity of the service
which, unwittingly, or. if you please, in
studied stupidity. Blanco thus rendered
our side! The first days of July found
our land forces under Shafter waging
desperately unequal battle. It is con
fessed now that the administration's
strategy board was premature and that
it erred badly in ordering the attack
on Santiago. Our forces, with the bost
courage in the world, were by half too
weak In numbers, short in supplies, not
properly equipped, hopelessly beyond
the reach of ready reinforcing. This
country reached the eve of the Fourth
under the gloomy impression that our
men were at a mighty hard pass. Shaf
ter himself was compelled to wire that,
after terrible losses, he could not pos
sibly storm the city. In front of which
he lay terribly exposed, without rein
The administration's strategists at
Washington promised to send to Shaf
ter, within a week, fifteen thousand men.
The event is proving that this promise
could not have been kept. But suppose
it could have been-a week: think of it.
Presently it transpired that the Span
iards entrenched at Santiago were
strongly reinforced; but for Blanco,
there is little doubt that this strength
ened force, with t'ervera in the harbor,
would have broken loose on our worn
out land forces, to sweep into the sea
the remnant of them that might sur
vive a fight so uneven.
Thus Blanco was for us a special prov
idence; by his ill-timed order he re
versed things-he made glorious a
Fourth of July which, by every proba
bility, would otherwise have been an
anniversary day of deepest anxiety.
Knowing how unspeakably foolish his
action, in sailing out, must appear to

the world know that it was none of his
doing; his telegram It Blanco puts the
accent on the words, "in compliance
with your orders."
For this, Senor Itlane. much thanks:
your bad angels couldn't have been
more perverse. It is a habit with our
sailors and soldiers to treat their Span
iard prisners with consideration. But
when this Captain General Blanco has
to seek our shelter, as soon he will have
to-why, when he does, our men will
welcome him with all the effuslve cour
tesies they can find in all the diplomacy
of all the modern tongues, in return for
the significant successes to which his
miserably bad judgment helped us. He
greatly aided us. to be downright frank
about it. he doubtless rescued us from
a perilously bad place. And Cervera

Without a Wire.
( EVERAL months ago scientists
were astonished to hear of the
invent ion of a system of tele
graphing which dispensed with wires.
To most people the story sounded too
incredible to be accepted seriously, and
I as the experiments had not at that time
reached a stage where doubters could
be made to see and believe. the matter
was temporarily forgotten. The ex
periments have gone on quietly, how
ever, and now any one who wishes to
travel to Bournemouth. In England,
can see the wireless telegraph system
in actual operation at the experimental
station established there by Prof.asor
Marconi. whence messages are made
to fly through space a distance of :our
teen miles without the aid of any con
necting wires. or any medium of ,om
munication save the atmosphere uf
which science makes such wonderful
The principle of telegraphing across
space without the aid Of intervening
wires finds an apt illustration in the
responsive action of two tuning forks.
If ue place a couple of tuning forks.
a hich are tuned to exactly the same
lnote, a short distance from one an
other. and then, by drawing a viotim
bow, or by striking one of them. care
it to sound a note-which is another
way of saying that we cause it to emit
mound-the second tuning fork will
catch up these vibrations and begin
itself to vibrate sympatheticlly. It
will give evidence of its vibration by
echoing the sound of the first tuning
fork. Within certain limits, and with
slight differences in practice, this in
the way in which electric waves by
being sent by one electric instrument
and being received on another transmit
first vibrations and thence messages
This was a method of signaling which
was known and experimented with by
Professor Nikola Tesia, of New York.

Brownlees, in France, before Professor
Marconi-who, up to a recent period.
used a BrownIees coherer to aid him in
getting distinctness of messages-was
heard of. Professor Marconi, however.
claims to have been more successful in
the practical transmission of messages
than of his forerunnners.
One of the great difficulties in send
ing messages is, of course, the difi
culty of getting Instruments suffi
ciently sensitive to record the Herts
ian waves when they are sent. If the
two tuning forks, which have been sug
gested as an Illustration of electrical
methods, were placed half a milelpart,
the instruments which would detect
sympathetic vibrations in the receiving
tuning fork would have to be extremely
sensitive, and some difficulty would be
found in distinguishing sympathetic
vibrations from those due to extraneous
causes. So it is with the electric tun
ing forks. Hertslan electric waves, like
light waves or sound waves, do not run
in parallel lines straight from the sirt
ing point; they radiate in all directions
like fragments of a bursting shell.
Professor Nikola Tesla, therefore, sug
gested some years ago, that an electric
screen should be added to the appa
ratus of the receiving stalion in order
to catch as many of the waves as possi
ble. This suggestion Professor Marconi
has adopted and adapted. In the case
of the Instrument at Bournemouth. he
has supplemented the receivers by the
addition of a mast 100 feet high, and
from a ring near the top a narrow strip
of wire netting runs to the receiving in
strument and acts as a collector of the
vibrations from Alum bay, where the
second action is located.
So satisfactory have been the experi
ments conducted by Professor Marconi.
that he is about to extend the distance
between his stations, carrying the sec
ond one to Chebourg, sixty miles away.
The experiments are at present in a very
elementary stage. It has been found
that the sound waves travel much faster
and better in foggy, rainy or windy
weather than when the air is clear and
the weather fine and still. As the clever
man who can telegraph without wires
cannot make weather to order, it is
necessary to overcome the atmospheric
conditions that influence the system, and
Professor Marconi Is bending all his
energies to bring this about. Broadly
speaking. the success of the experiments
is assured. inasmuch as messages are
sent and clearly interpreted without
the aid of wires. Though much remains
to be done, wireless telegraphy will
surely be in general use before long,
and people who marvel at the idea of
sending messages between widely sepa
rated points without intervening wires
will then look upon it as a matter of
course, as they now do the telephone.
