GOVERNMENT ENDORSEMENT MARCONI WIRELESS TELEGRAPH SYSTEM. As Viewed by O. G. V. Spain, Commander Canadian Marine Service. To the Deputy Minister of Marine and Fisheries of the Dominion of Canada. Ottaw’a: Sir—1 have the honor to submit here with he following report In connection with the Marconi stations erected in the river and gulf of St. Lawrence during the present season: The stations are situated at the fol lowing points: Fame Point, Quebec; Belle isle, Quebec; Heath Point, Anticosti, Cape Ray, New foundland, Point Armour, Labrador, Cape Race, Newfoundland. They have all been working very suc cessfully for some months before the close of navigation. The station at Fame Point was finished on June 25. and on that date held com munication with the Allan line R. M. S. Parisian, outward bound. A large num ber of messages were exchanged between this vessel and the land station. Jn the official test made by the govern ment, communication was held 130 miles to the eastward and 101 miles to the west ward. The latter distance might have been improved upon, but it was deemed inexpedient to continue the test owing to the fact that the government steamer conducting the same was ordered else where. The Heath Point station was completed on July 21. and on that date held com munication with royal mall steamers, in ward bound, for periods of six hours. Tlio official test of this station showed it to have an efficient range of about 130 miles, but on several occasions It ha^ held ves sels even further. The Point Armour station was com pleted on August 10, and on August il had its first communication with an out ward bound steamer. This station in the" official test made by one of the govern ment steamers showed a range of 115 miles. The Belle Isle station, which was com pleted September 1, has also shown, by Its official test, that It Is fully up to the standard of the other stations. It was in constant communication with the Point Armour station, which is situated some sixty miles to the westward, from the lime it was opened until the close of navigation. The station at Cape Ray, Newfoundland, was completed on October 7. The official lest of this station showed It to be en tirely satisfactory, having an efficient range of about lOfl miles. The Cape Race station was complete ed on November 17. and the official test <»f the station was also most satisfactory* The range of communication was fully up to that of Cape Ray station. Both the Cape Ray and Cape Race sta tions were utilized by the late governor general to send messages to the govern ment and people of Canada on the oc casion of his departure by the R. M. S. Parisian. The Cape Race station wa* also made use of by the Dominion gov ernment to communicate with the pres ent governor-general upon the occasion of his coming to Canada by the same steamer. All of the above stations have reported shipping and shipping intelligence to Lloyd’s agent, at Quebec. The Belle Isle and Point Armour sta tions have proved exceptionally valuable in communicating to steamers coming through the straits of Belle Tslo. nows as to weather conditions prevailing in the Straits. • in many instance* vesuris imve umi in communication with shore station* when enveloped In thick fog. and have found the Marconi system an invalua ble supplementary aid to the fog signal service already existing. News of current events have been furnished by the stations to all vessels equipped with the Marconi apparatus. This has not only proved a boon to the passengers, but will undoubtedly tend to popularize tlie St. Lawrence route with the traveling public. The Important aid to navigation ren dered by t lie Dominion of Canada in the matter of wireless telegraphy, has been very greatly appreciated by the Ship ping Federation of Canada and the ship ping Interests generally. Stations at Sable Islands and on the mainland, probably in t lie neighborhood of Canso, which are to be built under contract^ will be commenced as soon as the weather conditions permit. It was not Intended in the first place to have these stations intercommunicate, but It lias been pointed out by ship owners that the value of the system to shipping generally would be enormously increased i? these stations were able to establish intercommunication. For this reason the government has decided to increase the power of the St. Lawrence stations and to establish two other stations so that communication may be had by means of the Marconi System from Fame Point to Welle Isle or Cape Ray. The enormous advantage which will follow from having this system of in i tercommunication will be better under stood when It is known that the captain of a steamer will be able to know Just what weather conditions prevail along the entire St. Lawrence a few hours after leaving Quebec, and can direct his course accordingly. Three government ships, the Canada. Minto and Stanley, are fitted with the Marconi apparatus. I have the honor to be, sir. Your obedient servant, O. G. V. SPAIN, Commander Canadian Marine Service. Ottawa, December 12, 1904. Since the above report was made four teen new stations have been erected. Make ail checks payable to Munroe & Munroe Managers for the Marconi Under writers.

McCormack and Pullman had hard work to convince a doubting public of the practicability of their devices, but those who believed and believing, ventured, are today millionaires. No less a struggle had the inventor whose steel processes have made million aires of Carnegie, Schwab, Dick and the others. Where today are the men who laughed at S. F. B. Morse, when lie promised to put a girdle around the earth in thirty minutes? Where are the men who said the telegraph could never he made a com mercial success? Certainly not numbered among the thousands who coined wealth out of the Western Union telegraph stock. When George Eastman invented the humble Kodak, who believed that he one day would control anti dominate the pho tographic trade of almost the wfhole world? A few recognized the possibili ties of his invention and these are now' among the new-made millionaires of the United States. When the old, clumsy velocipede was used as a means of locomotion, few dreamed that one day George Pope would be counted a millionaire and thousands of his hackers made rich by the safety bicycle that was its direct lineal de scendant. It would never be more than a play thing, a toy, and declined to buy the in vention from Bell for $100,000. Tet the telephone, according to Its best statistical authorities has added one hundred bil lions of new wealth to the possession of man. One hundred dollars invested with Bell in the telephone brought a total re turn in twenty-seven years of over $200,000. If you will inquire you will And men today who will tell you that Marconi's wireless telegraph is a dream. That it has numerous defects and is not of com mercial use; that it will never amount to anything. Those men are like their progenitors who derided the locomotive, the reaping machine, the steamboat, the telegraph and the telephone. They are the men who always “know better"—the men wMio believe in nothing taut themselves—and occasionally doubt themselves. They would tell you that the wireless telegraph is of no practical util ity, and would advise you to have noth ing to do with it. We have in mind one case that came under our personal observation quite re cently, that of a savings bank president of Haverhill, Mass. This gentleman at tended one of our lectures and exhibitions at that place, and at the conclusion came FRFF EXHIBITION OF WIRELESS TELEGRAPH AT High vSchool Auditorium Take Gate City or North Birmingham Cars. Tonight at 8 Everybody Welcome Ladies Particularly Souvenirs Distributed SOME MISTAKES OF THE SKEPTI CAL. How Opportunities for Wealth Passed Them and Were Grabbed by Believers. When Stevenson proposed to draw 1 "goods vans" by means of his "Puffing Billy" there were not lacking men who j exclaimed: "Impossible.” And when he proved it possible they j then exclaimed: "It can never be made to pay!” Needless to say they are not among j the railroad millionaires of today. When Fulton proposed steam-propuhjion ; for water craft he was laughed at. but j Commodore Vanderbilt, the waterman. . the boatman of North River believed j and became a millionaire. When Howe Invented the sewing ma- ' chine there were thousands to call him j di earner. A few investigated and be came rich because they wer? willing to investigate and investigating, became con vinced. Neither was Edison’s phonograph nor his electric light believed to have the potentialities of wealth creation that they have proved to possess. These two in ventions have added billions to the world's wealth. The simple invention of a method of petroleum refining made a billionaire of Rockefeller and millionaires of dozens of his followers. The invention of vaseline made many men rich who had the courage to back the inventor. Purchasers of the stock in the Mergen thaler Linotype company in the early stages of its development became rich beyond their wildest dreams. Men who backed Cyrus W. Field in ids project to connect Europe and America by telegraph wires lived to enjoy life long ease from the earnings of small sums invested. Vet what each of these inventions ac complished was often declared by doubt ers and skeptics to be impossible. Just so men declared that the telephone could never he of any practical commer cial utility—no demand for it existed—no peed tor it was known. Jay Gould said I forward and purchased a number of | shares. Then he told us that years ago, j when Professor Bell visited that city giv | Ing demonstrations of the telephone and j selling telephone stock, that he, the presi i dent of the bank, then only cashier, had not only declined to buy the stock, but ! had actively Interested himself to pre | vent others, particularly his depositors, | from doing so. “Why I did it." s»ftld he, “is a mystery | ! to me now; I knew' nothing of the merits of the telephone and nothing of the char- i actor of the men engaged in financing it; I just took the position that anything ' that wras offered to the public in that way was apt to be a fake, und so 1 went about telling people to beware. 1 have regretted it a good many times since, for if I had j not been so cocksure of the superiority j of my Judgment, very many of my fellow ! townsmen would have made large profits on investment in telephone stock; just a little ventured on my own account would have made me a millionaire. 1 after ward paid $800 A share for Bell stock that 1 could have brought then for $5. A • “1 don’t know’ much about the Marconi j system, but I have investigated the char acter of the men interested In the com pany, and I find among them some of the best and most responsible men in the world, and I am going to be wiser in my old age than, I was In my youth." Everywhere we go we hear of men, re sponsible business men. advising their friends to let Marconi stock alone, and we Invariably find that such advice is given by men wiho known nothing about the system, of Its management or prog ress. and we hunt them up and ask them to give us a chance to convince them of the error of their Judgment. Sometimes they are fair minded enough to give us a chance to do so and when they do we generally convert them. Some men never make up their minds for themselves, they always~a.sk other’s opinions and advice, and without com ing to see what we have to show them or without malting any Inquiry whatever, take somebody’s else opinion for it. But you, reader, are surely too wise to distrust your own faculties, too wise to doubt your own Judgment, too brave to be afraid to listen to reason and sound sense? No harm can come to you from giving ear to the exposition of the Marconi Wire loss Telegraph system; no danger threat ens you If you Investigate it and learn for yourself what It does now—what It promises to do In the future. We Invite you to come and see what we have to show you and to hear what we have to tell you. Whether you become a Marconi stockholder or not is a matter between you and your pocketbook. We want you to come and see if you believe in the possible ultimate destiny of our system. We promise to give you food for thought and proof absolute that the Marroni sys tem of wireless telegraph will perform any service now performed by t'he wire telegraphs. We want you If you are a man of sober sense, and Judgment, of intelligence and discrimination. If you are merely a purse proud, self-sufficient ignoramus, we don’t want you. We shall also give you an opportunity to subscribe for some of the stock. If you don't buy It, it will not be our loss, but your own. The first exhibition of the Marconi Wire less telegraph ever given In Birmingham will be given on Monday evening, next, March 19, at the new High school audi torium. at 8 o’clock. No charge is made for admission and no one will be Importuned to subscribe for stock; we will merely show you that wires are no longer necessary for tele graphing and that t'he introduction of the wireless means an enormous saving to the public and greater profit to the com pany; we will show you that the com pany has progressed more rapidly than any other electrical enterprise ever In augurated and that Its commercial estab lishment Is growing at a rate unprece dented in history; we will prove this by actual photographic presentations show ing t'he stations of the company In all parts of the world on shore and on ship; we will answer any and all questions that may he asked, and If you are too timid to speak out in public and ask questions then you may write them out anil hand them to one of the attendants and the lecturer will answer them for you. We court the fullest and freest Investi gation. We shall open an office at the Hotel Hillman for the purpose of receiving ap plications for the stock. W. A. RYAN, Representing MONROE & MONROE.

ABRAHAM LINCOLN ONCE SAID That some should be rich shows that others may become rich, and hence is an encouragement to energy and enterprise. It is the unthinking who attribute fail ure to lack of opportunity. It is no ex cuse to urge that chances have been de nied you. The world is full of opportunity. One man grasps an opportunity that which another shuns as unjustifiable risk. The first is a success, the other a fail ure. Cyrus Field saw opportunity in the At-^ lantic cable. Other men saw only risk and inevitable failure. Morse alone of the hundreds of scientists who knew and discussed the phenomena of electricity recognized the telegraph opportunity. Bell, struggling witli the undulatory the ory of sound waves conceived his oppor tunity and realized the telephone. Marconi was the one man of all experi menters in etheric waves who saw In that subtle influence his great opportunity—the wireless telegraph. Following Morse came a host of imita tors, who sought to benefit by his discov eries. Companies exploiting rival tele graph systems by House. Henry and others gained a vogue. One company, at lf£St. outrivaled Morse's in its commer cial establishments, but all were swallow ed up in the great patent decisions which gave the great inventor the sole property rights to his discoveries. Field s rivals were active and succeeded in gathering a large following for a time, but Field’s overtowering genius won the hard-fought battle. Bell’s claims were fought by Gray, by Drawbaugh, by Dolbear. Corporations backing those claims were wrecked by the final triumph of Justice in Bell’s favor. Marconi is not without imitators, but— There is only one Marconi, and only one Marconi system, and the Canadian rights to that system, including the United States and Its dependencies, and all ships sailing under its flag, belong to the Marconi Wireless Telegraph Company of Canada. It is in this company that the same opportunity is presented to the peo ple of this generation to become rich that was presented to the people of past generations by the accom plishments of Morse. Field and Bell, through Investment in the companies or ganized to establish the several systems Invented by them. Marconi’s remarkable achievements have been accomplished in much less time than any of the others. I^ess than three years have passed since he flrat demonstrated the practicability of doing without wires whut the others named had done with wdres. This mean* the wiping our of over 90 per cent of the ini tial cost in the establishment of * telc“ graph system. Statistics show that whatever lessens the cost of doing or creating anything lias the effect to extend its usefulness in the direct ratio to the resulting economy; that it increases the demand for it in the same ratio, and Increases the profits of those engaged in its production or opera tion in proportion to the decreased coat. .. The Marconi system not only decrease* the initial cost of establishing a tele graph system, but— (1) . It decreases buj the cost of oper ation. (2) It decreases the cost of mainten ance. (3) It almost abolishes the cost of re pairs. (4) . It decreases the time required for transmission of messages. Furthermore— ' (1) . It increases the usefulness of the telegraph by making available distant and inaccessible and hitherto impossible points as ships at sea/ small islands, etc., etc. (2) . It increases the demand for tale graphic facilities by decreasing the ex pense of utilizing them. (3) . It increases the profits of telegraphic operation by reason of all of the abov* cited facts. The Marconi Wireless Telegraph Com pany of Canada, is already in active commercial operation; Is In the receipt of substantial revenues—not yet sufficient to meet all the growing needs of the com pany for extensions, betterments and im provements, but none the less highly sat isfactory, making its commercial opera tions self-supporting. It is constantly de veloping new avenues of usefulness for th* Marconi system. That system Is now in dally use by the Associated Press, the New York Herald, the London Times, and all the great trans-Atlantic steamship lines. It has been estimated that one branch of wireless service only (the trans-Atlantic traffic of one station), will be sufficient to pay over 150 per cent annually. To paraphrase Lincoln: That eome men have grown rich out of telegraph and telephone Investments, shows that others may become rich by investing in the Marconi system. A public realization of the facts above cited is what has caused the price ot Marconi shares to pass par. Marconi shares have steadily advanced and show a greater increase in value than any othet security on the market during that time. There is a reason for this. Backing Mar coni shares is an organization sound In every detail; wisely, capably managed, honestly administered; faithfully served. Ahead of them is a future that promises extraordinary profits. ITS IMPORTANCE TO CANADA. It ha* In contemplation and under con sideration large plans for the extension arid enlaigement of Its system, which will, when realised, make the company of the utmost Importance to the political and commercial w-elfare of the Dominion. Consideration Is now being given to plans for the extension of the Marconi system to Pacific coast ports of call and entry In Canada, which In all probability will result in the equipment of coastwise and seagoing steamships touching thereat. Its patents, which are basic, and which underlie the art of wireless tel egraphy, are conservatively eatimated by experts to be worth over $10,000, 000. The integrity of these patents was recently upheld by the United States Courts against infringing in ventors. A system of direct communication be tween Canada and the mother country ia of the utmost Importance to the wel fare of the British empire, and must ulti mately result In closer business relations and In better and more cordial Inter course between England and Canada. There Is at present no direct means of communication by the Marconi system, all messages having to pass through America, over foreign cables. The need for the early extension of the Marconi system throughout the Dominion must therefore be apparent. Over $3,000,000 PER YEAR IS SPENT BY CANADIAN CITIZENS for cable messages, and this great expenditure passes Into the receipt column of cable companies owned In the United States or Europe. Why should this great sum of money go as tribute to outsiders? OUGHT IT NOT HEMAIN IN CANADA FOR REDISTRIBUTION in the country where it Is expended and where It may be TURNED TO FUR THER PROFIT? It is suprising that this tremendous branch of industry is not served by a company owned and operated In Canada. The Marconi Wireless Telegraph Com pany of Canada, ltd., has shell close business relationship to Marconi's Wireless Telegraph company. Ltd. of London; the Marconi Wireless Telegraph company of America, and all other Marconi companies wher ever organized throughout the world that the whole may be said to form one system, each Integral part of which ia tributary to the other. - The harmonious and co-operative relations of the various Marconi companies is assured by binding contract obligations, through which each. Marconi station erected at aqy point 1n the world becomes in a sense a feeder of all. Therefore, each station ereoted in any part of the world adds to the earning capacity of all others, and each steam ship adds to the list of those carrying the Marconi system adds another factor to the progress and earning capacity of the Canadian company, as well as of all other Marconi companies. An equltgbls system of the division of earnings on traf fic between connecting companies has been devised, which insures to each its full proportion. The Canadian company owns the exclu sive right to equip all vessels of Canadian registry with the Marconi system. All vessels of the merchant marine now equipped with wireless telegraph appara tus must, on their winter voyages between Europe and America, pass within one hun dred miles of a Canadian wireless tele graph station, and the last point of com munication on the outward voyage from America and the first point on the Inward voyage Is therefore a station of this com pany. A very considerable traffic must necessarily pass through this station. The great Canadian northwest, includ ing British Columbia, the Northwest and Yukon territories, now almost wholly without telegraph facilities, offers a most profitable field for the operations of this company. It has been found practically Impossible to maintain wire communica tion with these distant points, though hundreds of thousands of dollars have been expended in the attempt. The Mar coni system may be Installed for a mere fraction of the cost of wire systems of telegraph. W. H. RYAN, Room 9, Hillman Hotel, Representative.
