Thence messages will be re layed to Molokai and to Maui and to Hawaii. From Lanai to Mahukona, on Hawaii, will be the greatest distance bridged, about seventy miles, although it is honed that ultimntiv macaao-a can be sent direct from Kaimuki to Mahukona. a distance of about 125 miles, without relaying them at Lanai. This will probably not be attempted at once, until the system is in good work ing order. Manager Cross Happy. Manager Cross was jubilant Saturdav over the success of the experiments and poles of the same height; as those, used in the first attempt to send messages across the channel. Last year the sys tem was used with great success in the autumn maneuvres of the British fleet, one of the great events of the year for Englishmen. It was used in reporting the international yacht race last fall, and proved a great success. Advantages to the Islands. When the Islands a're at last connected by the wireless telegraph one of the aims that has been striven for for many years past will be accomplished. The growing business all over tne group has made some ad communication from the other Islands the prospective conclusion of the Ions 1 to.
