We will soon send out ships equipped with receiving Instruments, Wu havo just completed a station at ltoanoako, X. C, and will soon havo stations at Ilatterass and Cape Henry. "We havo succeeded in telegraphing perfectly with our wireless system for sixty miles over a rough country around Washington. That, 1 believe is equal to tho best transmission that has ovor been accomplished by tho Marconi method, Our system Is (jullo distinct from his, and is. being devel oped ulong our own lines. "Wo succeeded in sending messages for some distance from a staff only three feet high, We established a regular communication between the laboratory and Washington, (10 miles. A stuff too feet high was on tho place, and at tho top we placed our Instru ments, Wo were' ublo to communicate as regularly and us freely as though we were working over wires. Tho speed of tho waves was practicully that of light. "Wo used a system of dots and dashes and our receiver was of tho 'sounder' typo. Wo road mossages by sound. Wo expect, howevor, to devel op a receiver that will record messages. Notwithstanding our success, it does nut seem that wireless telegraphy is developed yet to tho point where It can be used for tho ordinary commer cial purposes on land, Tho earth dis turbances and the conditions that surround cities would provo obsta cles."
