Tesla’s Latest Electric Invention
Proves a Success.
THE WIRELESS TELEGRAPH.
Already He Has Sent and Received Sig
nals at a Distance of Twenty Miles.
Instantaneous Communication With
All 1’issts of the Earth Possible.
New York, June 7.—At last Nikola
Tesla has reached a point in his inves
tigation of the possibility of telegraph
ing without wires to make a positive
announcement of his achievements. It
has been one of his dreams for years.
He has worked at the problem long and
anxiously, but his talk has always been
guarded and indefinite. He spoke of the
possibility that the thing might be
done, and once, a few months ago, he
went so far as to call it a probability.
He was more positive and sanguine
then than ever before, but still he was
not ready to talk of achievements. But
at last the work has reached a stage
where the modest attitude of uncer
tainty and hope gives way to positive
ness and assurance, and the definite
announcement of success is made.
Mr. Tesla declares that he has pro
duced electrical devices with which he
fan actually send and receive mes
sages by a system which can be so ap
plied as to make it possible for an op
erator In New York to communicate
with the people of any part of the earth
and perhaps even with those of the
stars, if any of these are inhabited.
"The machines which I have com
pleted,” said Mr. Tesla, “will carry mes
sages through the earth for a distance
of 20 miles or so. I have sent and re
ceived signals with them, and I feel
confident that I am not mistaken in
saying that the problem, upon which 1
have spent many days and nights, is
solved. Of course it is possible that I
am mistaken. I have made mistakes
before, but not many. I shall at once
make machines which I expect will en
able me to telegraph to any part of the
earth as readily as I can within a lim
ited distance by means of the ones I
have.
"If I have a machine that will throw
a stone from here to there,” continued
Mr. Tesla, pointing from the floor at his
feet to the door of his laboratory, "then
I do not need to doubt that I can make
one which will throw the stone 50 miles
if I can control the necessary power.”
Mr. Tesla was not ready to explain
in detail the devices which he uses for
telegraphing without wires, but he
talked freely about the principles which
are involved and made it clear that the
results were obtained by using some
form of his electric oscillator, recently
patented. As long ago, he said, as when
he was putting up telephone wires in
Budapest he observed that electrical
impulses were carried long distances
without the intervention of wires.
There was a telegraph cable a mile and
a half or two mtleB away over which
messages were being sent by the Morse
code, and at times he could read these
messages through the telephone. This
set him to investigating the electrical
condition of the air. He became satis
fied that the messages were conveyed
to the telephone wires by induction.
Telegraphing Through the Earth.
In 1S90 he announced his belief that
by means of electrical impulses of an
extremely high rate, never yet attain
ed at that time, bright light might be
obtained from Crookes tubes, and in
1891 he made this announcement in
London.
"I believed at that time that tele
graphing might be conducted through
the earth without wires,” he said, “but
I was afraid to say so for fear I should
be laughed at and discredited by the
older and abler men who were the lead
ers in electrical science.”
It was not until 1893, when he appear
ed before the National Electrical Light
ing association at St. Louis, that he
first declared his belief in the possibili
ty of telegraphing over the whole earth
without wires. Then he explained the
general method which he believed would
make this possible if he could get a ma
chine which should be able to disturb
the static electricity of the earth. In
that year be had an electrical exhibit
at the World’s fair in Chicago, and
among his visitors was Professor Helm
holz.
“I spoke of my project to Professor
Helmholz,” Mr. Tesla said, “and told
him how I thought it might be accom
plished. ‘Yes, it is possible,’ he said,
‘but it would take much power.’ I was
very much pleased with this admission
by this great master and gratified that
he did not condemn the idea, as many
of my coworkers had done. I did not
tell him then that I had already solved
that part of the problem.”
The solution to which Mr. Tesla re
ferred was brought about through the
work which he had (Jone in developing
his electrical oscillator, which he was
working upon practically in connection
with the production of light from the
Crookes tubes. The energy of the elec
tric current, like that of flowing water,
is displayed only when the current is
interrupted. A familiar example of this
may be seen in the common medical
battery where the current flowing from
one pole to the other may be passed
through the most sensitive parts of the
body, and yet not be felt. Pass the
same current through a Ruhmkorff coil,
interrupting the secondary current by
the vibrations of the commutator, and
it will twist up the muscles of the
strongest man and make him power
less.
Before Tesla’s time interruptions ot
this sort had been produced only by me
chanical means and could number only
a few hundred a second. His electrical
oscillator acts upon the principle of a
bell, where a single stroke of the ham
mer sets the metal vibrating with a
rapidity commensurate with its bulk,
and these vibrations can be continued
indefinitely by repeated strokes of the
hammer at slow intervals. Mr. Tesla
now makes oscillators -which will inter
rupt the current millions of times in a
second.
Sunk by the Fuerst Bismarck.
Hamburg, June 7.—-The Hamburg
American line steamer Fuerst Bis
marck, Captain Albers, from New York
May 27, which arrived here yesterday,
ran down an English fishing boat in
the North sea while in the midst of a
thick fog. Five occupants of the boat
were drowned
BADGER IN CUSTODY.
The Indian Slayer of Ranchman Hoover
Taken to Miles City.
Miles City, Mon., June 7.—Stock In
spector Smith, having in charge Bad
ger, the Indian who killed Sheepherder
Hoover, has arrived here. When the
train arrived, the depot platform was
crowded. Special police and deputy
sheriffs were on hand to protect the
prisoner. Badger exhibited no signs of
nervousness. His face was streaked
with red paint, and his blanket was
Jrawn tightly over his shoulders. Bad
ger was escorted to the railroad by a
company of cavalry.
County Attorney Porter learned that
there are ten Indians implicated in the
murder of Hoover. The names of six
are known to the officers. Warrants
will be placed in the sheriff’s hands,
and all who interfere with the officers
in the discharge of their duty will be
arrested as long as the sheriff and posse
are able to do it.
Agent Stouch will not allow the sher
iffs on the reservation, as a letter dated
June 3 to W. D. Smith, deputy sheriff
of Custer county, will shotv. He says:
"I consider that the presence here of
yourself and other sheriffs or deputies
at this time, pending my investigation
of the case in question, would be a
source of irritation and disturbance to
the Indians under my charge and to a
great extent hamper me in conducting
the investigation and in managing the
Indians under authority. I now direct
and order that you and all other sher
iffs or deputies leave the reservation
without delay and remain outside the
limits of the same until you can come
provided with duly executed warrants
of a specific nature.”
The warrants were for “John Doe,”
and Indian Agent Stouch objected to
them on that account. It has ju3t been
learned that Matt Winter, deputy sher
iff, who left the reservation to watch
the suspects, has been forcibly ejected
from the reservation by the Indian po
lice under orders by Agent Stouch.
THE CONTEMPT CASES.
Suits Against the Newspaper Correspon
dents Now Ready For Trial.
Washington, June 7.—It is announe- j
ed that the trial of Mr. John S. Shriv
er, the Washington representative of a
New York paper, indicted in 1S94 for
having refused to answer certain ques
tions asked him by the senate’s Sugar
trust investigating committee, will be
proceeded with on Monday.
Mr. Shriver’s trial will be immediate
ly followed by that of Mr. E. J. Ed
wards, the Washington correspondent
of the Philadelphia Press, who stands
similarly charged.
Upon the conclusion of the trials of
Messrs. Shriver and Edwards, District
Attorney Davis will proceed with the
cases against Broker John W. Macart
ney and Allen Lewis Seymour. Messrs.
Macartney and Seymour, Mr. Davis
contends, were asked almost identically
the same questions -which Mr. Elverton
R. Chapman refused to answer and for
which refusal he is now serving a term
of 30 days in jail. Counsel for Messrs.
Macartney and Seymour have under
advisement that their clients shall plead
guilty, with an understanding respect
ing the sentence, but no conclusion has
been reached in the matter.
Baby Whales on Exhibition.
New York, June 7.—There are two
baby whales in the aquarium now.
They were caught in the gulf of St.
Lawrence. They are male and female,
in fine condition apparently. They
came packed in seaw'eed in two big
boxes. It required a derrick and 14 men
to lift them into the big pool in the
center of the aquarium. The male is
of a cream color, 10Y2 feet long. The
female is darker, a drab color, with
brown spots, and is 9% feet long. They
both began to investigate their new
quarters when put into the water, and
seemed very lively swimming about the
bottom of the pool.
Reward Offered For Boggs.
Dover, Del., June 7.—President Rich
ardson of the First National bank, of
which William N. Boggs, the defaulter,
was recently teller, has authorized a
reward of $500 for Boggs’ arrest and
conviction. The experts and clerks have
discovered a further shortage, and one
of the directors said he would not be
surprised if the total reached $75,000.
His former bondsmen, among whom are
some of the best citizens of this sec
tion, are liable for all money taken
prior to September last, at which time
the American Surety company of New
York became responsible.
Steamship Engineer Dead.
Fall River, Mass., June 7.—Chief En
gineer Robert M. Marquis of the Fall
River line steamer City of Taunton
died at the Emergency hospital here
after a short Illness from a complica
tion of diseases, aggravated by a fall
which he received three weeks ago. He
was 64 years of age and had served the
Old Colony Steamboat company about
20 years, having been chief engineer of
all its freight boats at different times.
He leaves a widow In Cold Springs,
N. Y. _
Murder Mystery at Albany.
Albany, June 7.—The badly decom
posed body of a man has been fished
out of the Hudson river here. The
throat was cut and the clothing weight
ed down with sand. Dr. J. C. Brown,
who made an autopsy, stated positively
that from the nature of the wound on
the throat the theory of suicide is out
of the question. The lungs show that
the man was dead before his body was
thrown into the water.
The New Torpedo Boat Porter.
Washington, June 7.—The final tria\
of the torpedo boat Porter has been or
dered to take place over Long Island
sound on Tuesday, and the trial board
has been directed to assemble at New
York for that purpose. T*he boat will
be kept at sea for 12 hours to demon
strate that she has not developed weak
ness or fault due to construction in the
past four months.
Despondency Led to Suicide.
Utica, N. Y., June 7.—The body of an
aged gardener named Alfred Clark was
found hanging in a barn on the prem
ises of his employer, Arthur Ashton of
Genesee street of this city. Deceased
had been despondent lately, brooding
over some real or fancied financial
troubles. _
Spanish Liberals Likely to Win.
Madrid, June 7.—The newspapers of
this city unanimously express the opin
ion that the cabinet crisis will end in
the Liberals’ return to power.
THE END OF WEYLER.
His Resignation or Recall the Topic
In Havana.
SPANIARDS SUPPRESS NEWS.
Information Regarding the Crisis In Spain
Withheld From the Public—Uneasiness
In the Cuban Capital—Disaffection
Among the Spanish Troops.
Havana, via Key West, June 7.—All
definite news of the cabinet crisis in Ma
drid has been suppressed here by the
authorities, and though Havana has
heard rumors that Sagasta has suc
ceeded Canovas and the next moment
that Canovas still holds the reins, the
truth is not known.
So Havana guesses at the Madrid sit
uation and wonders if General Wey
ler’s reign is over at last. Additional
precautions are taken to hide the facts
because of the sudden return of Gen
eral Weyler from the field.
It is believed here that if Sagasta
succeeds Canovas, General Weyler will
have to resign at once or will be recall
ed. His unexpected return to Havana
is due to the news from Spain, and ru
mors that he has already resigned have
been persistently circulated. He has
declined so far to be interviewed. His
long trip to Santa Clara has been, it is
believed here, as barren of results as
were those before it.
That the Spanish here and abroad
are heartily tired of his methods no one
fan doubt, but whether the government
will take the responsibility of removing
him while there is a crisis at home is
the question.
Dr. Congosto, who represents Spain
in the Ruiz case, had a conference with
General Weyler last evening.
Prom the views which Sagasta has
expressed it is not thought here that
his accession to power would greatly
hasten the solution of the Cuban ques
tion.
Watching the United States.
The attitude of the United States di
vides attention with the Madrid crisis.
It is generally felt here that definite
news from Washington will follow Mr.
Calhoun’s arrival there on Monday or
Tuesday. Mr. Calhoun, before sailing,
had a talk with politicians regarding
all parties here. The result was to
persuade him that American interven
tion of any sort would be welcome to
even the Spanish here.
Some of the prominent men Mr. Cal
houn talked with favor home rule and
others an American protectorate, which
would insure the safety of property
and renewed prosperity. Some of the
ultra Spanish here now comfort them
selves with the assurance said to have
come from Dr. Congosto that Mr. Cal
houn has aspirations toward a diplo
matic post at Madrid and will take no
step antagonistic to his interests in
that direction, which would tend to
make him persona non grata in Spain,
Americans who talked with Mr. Cal
houn are satisfied that he will say that
the war here should be stopped, how
ever doubtful he may be as to the
length the United States should go in
the matter. No doubt he will be influ
enced considerably by the general feel
ing here that action by the United
States or anything which means peace
is desirable.
The new cabinet talk has relieved
the money tension slightly, but the ef
fect cannot be permanent. Spain has
little money, it is believed, and no one
here thinks she can negotiate loans,
which are absolutely essential to the
continuation of operations.
Uneasiness In Havana.
Havana is uneasy at the persistent
efforts of the authorities to keep the
island in the dark as to the events in
Spain and the United States. The Di
ario de la Marina reports that Mr. Mc
Kinley has appointed former Repre
sentative Aldrich of Illionis to succeed
General Lee. Nothing is known of the
matter here, but it is not thought a
successor tjQ General Lee would be ap
pointed at the present time.
It has often been stated that the mu
tilated bodies of Cubans have been ex
posed in the tow'ns to citizens and sol
diers for the purpose, as the Spanish
say, of warming their loyal hearts. A
representative of the United States gov
ernment, who was in Sancti Spiritus on
last Saturday, saw one of these sights.
Three pacificos had been killed in the
suburbs by the local guerrillas and were
strapped on the backs of horses and
carried through the streets at a slow
pace, that the crowd might follow easi
ly. The American who saw the pro
cession was horrified to observe that
one victim had been beheaded and an
other terribly slashed and mangled,
and that, as the procession passed, the
dusty streets were marked by the
blood of these trophies.
There is increasing disaffection among
the Spanish troops. La Llade battalion,
near Matanzas, is reported to have
killed its colonel during a row over the
soldiers’ refusal to accept paper money.
Then many deserted to the rebels.
From Gulnes, too, comes the report
that there have been extensive deser
tions from both infantry and cavalry.
Spanish Troops In Rebellion.
Trouble with the soldiery is also said
to have occurred in Guanajay, where
the troops, when ordered to Are on a
crowd of billette rioters, refused to
shoot men whom they called brothers.
These soldiers, whose pay is months in
arrears, get paper money, and so, even
when nominally paid, they receive only
40 per cent of what is due them.
The strike in Havana is over for the
present. The manager of the street
railroad was ordered to start the cars
or go into exile. He menaced and brib
ed his men to go to work.
During the last few days an immense
quantity of coal has been piled on the
piers under the walls of the Cabana.
The coal is supposed to be for the war
ships. It was said recently that the
coal supply here would be utterly Inad
equate in case the fleet should require
coaling.
A letter sent to Havana by a Cuban
deported to Fernando Po says that the
voyage occupied 41 days, and that the
prisoners were kept battened down be
tween decks during the whole voyage.
There were 518 deaths in Santa Clara
last month, and in Artemisa, where
starvation is general, the deaths now
average 40 a day.
The Spanish newspapers have renew
ed their attack upon United States Con
sul Walter B. Baker at Sagua la
Grande, saying that he Is relieving per
sons who are not reconcentrados.

M’KINLEY’S MONEY PLAN.
Reported That He Will Appoint a Com
mission to Investigate the Currency.
New York, June 8.—The World says
it is reported that the president has ,
written a special message to congress, j
recommending the appointment of a ,
commission to investigate the currency ;
question and that he will send it to ,
congress as soon as the tariff bill is out j
of the way.
The creation of such a commission has
been pressed upon the attention of Mr. j
McKinley since he entered the White 1
House by the executive committee of 1
the Indianapolis monetary convention, [
which has maintained headquarters in
this city.
H. H. Hanna of Indianapolis is chair
man of the committee and has had fre
quent consultation with the president
on the subject.
Secretary Gage is a stanch supporter
of the scheme, and from all that can be
learned the president thinks a commis
sion of able men might get good results
from an investigation to be made the
basis for legislation at the regular ses
sion of congress.
No Bank Run In Dover.
Dover, Del., June 8.—The First Na
tional bank opened as usual, prepared
to meet a run, but the run did not oc
cur. The Farmers’ bank here has
pledged assistance, as has also the Na
tional bank of Philadelphia. Sheriff
Shaw issued execution against former
sureties of William N. Boggs, the de
faulting paying teller. Boggs’ defalca
tion will exceed $100,000. The directors
have since Saturday deposited over
$150,000 as an evidence of their faith in
the institution. President H. A. Rich
ardson announced that he would back
the bank to his last dollar. Of the de
falcation it is probable that at least
half will have to come out of the bank’s
capital, which is $100,000.
An Infant’s Remarkable Escape.
Lyons, N. Y., June 8.—Mrs. Saxon G.
Palmeter, while calling upon Mrs. N. D.
Hatch, left her 18-months-old daughter,
Marguerite, in a perambulator on the
street. A gust of wind blew the carriage
down the decline into the Erie canal.
The child was thrown out, but its cloth
ing spread out on the water, and the
child floated. Mrs. Palmeter rushed
down and jumped into the canal and
would have drowned had net Michael
Henry, Jr., and Edward Roberts, two
schoolboys, jumped in and rescued her.
The infant was also rescued, none the
worse for the accident.
Williams, Like Barkis, Is Willing.
New York, June 8.—On the steamer
Saratoga, from Havana, was Ramon O.
Williams, formerly United States consul
general at Havana. General Williams
was told that a cablegram had been
sent to him at Tampico, offering the
Spanish mission. He said he had not
heard of it. When asked if he would
accept, he said he would wait until ho
received the tender of the mission.
“However,” said he, "I am at my coun
try’s service, should any demand be
made.”
Shot by J. Breckinridge Payne.
Lexington, Ky., June 8.—J. Breckin
ridge Payne, descendant of the best
families of Kentucky, shot Percy Stack
house, a driver and trainer of trotting
horses, inflicting perhaps a fatal wound.
Payne is reduced in circumstances and
was living at the Stackhouse home. A
quarrel over a slight matter brought on
a collision, in which Payne used his re
volver He has been held for trial and,
it is said, will be defended by his kins
man, W. C. P. Breckinridge.
May Die From a Needle Frick.
New York, June 8.—Miss Rosa Ros
sow, a nurse, is suffering from blood
poisoning at the German hospital. While
assisting Dr. Jacob Frankenberg In per
forming an operation last Tuesday,
Miss Rossow pricked the index finger
of her left hand with a needle which
had been used in the operation. The
patient died on Wednesday night and
Miss Rossow, then in great pain, sought
treatment at the hospital. She may die.
South American Delegates En Tour.
Philadelphia, June 8. —The South
American delegates who attended the
opening of the Philadelphia Commer
cial museum have started on a tour of
the industrial centers of this country.
Representatives of the Commercial mu
seum accompanied the party.
Five More Harrison Fellowships.
Philadelphia, June 8.—At a meeting
of the trustees of the University of
Pennsylvania five additional fellowships
were established upon the George Leib
Harrison foundation. There are now
24 Harrison fellowships, 19 having each
a net value of $500 and 5 senior fellow
ships of the value, of $800 each.
Reid Takes a London House.
London, June 8.—Lord Lonsdale’s
residence, 15 Carlton House terrace, has
been secured for the occupancy of
Whitelaw Reid, special embassador of
the United States to the queen’s jubilee,
during his stay in London.
VICTIM OFVIOLEIE.
Commissioner Callionn Learns the
Cause of Dr. Ruiz’s Death.
NAKED FACTS OCT OF REACH.
Impossible For the Commissioner to Se
cure Proper Witnesses—General Wey
ler Carefully Remains Away—End
of the War Not In Sight.
New York, June 8.—After spending
three weeks in Cuba investigating, by
direction of President McKinley, the
circumstances surrounding the death of
Dr. Ricardo Ruiz, the American who is
supposed to have been murdered in a
Spanish prison by order of Colonel
Fonsdeviela, Special Commissioner W.
J. Calhoun has arrived in this city
aboard the steamship Saratoga. Mr.
Calhoun’s mission to Cuba was a grave
one, being of extreme importance to
both Spain and this country. His work
in the Ruiz matter was a failure so far
as securing proper testimony was con
cerned. Important witnesses were not
produced, and those examined dared not
tell the truth. They had been coached
in their testimony, which they recited
like a schoolboy reading a well learned
lesson.
The Jail Where Ruiz Died.
Fonsdeviela, under whose orders, it is
said, Ruiz was murdered, did not ap
pear, and his whereabouts was un
known to the commission. That is the
story from the American standpoint.
The Spaniards paved the way beauti
fully for the commission to proceed with
its work. The jail where Ruiz died was
suspiciously clean when the commission
arrived and the attendants were laugh
ably polite to the unfortunate prison
ers. The result of the investigation,
however, has been to convince General
Lee and Mr. Calhoun that Dr. Ruiz met
a violent death in the Spanish prison.
This decision was reached despite all
the efforts of the Spanish authorities to
prevent the truth from becoming known.
"Ruiz died in a cell,” said Mr. Cal
houn, “after having been incommuni
cado for some time. He remained
there until his death, and no one saw
him save a few Spaniards. When his
body was taken out of the cell, it was
seen that there was a bad wound on
the head. You can readily understand
that all the facts in the case were con
fined to that little cell where Ruiz
passed his last wretched hours."
"Were the Spaniards aware before
the death of Ruiz that he was an Amer
ican citizen?” was asked the special
commissioner.
The Message on the Chair.
“There was no question about that
point. Th^ey admitted from the begin
ning that he was an American.”
“Did you see the chair upon which
Ruiz wrote his farewell message?”
“Yes, I saw the scraped message, and
it looked sad enough too. Witnesses
did not run after us, I can assure you.
It was impossible to secure proper wit
nesses, although the Spaniards, to all
appearances, tried to be fair. After a
few days I came to the conclusion that
it would not be possible to get at the
naked facts. Indeed, we could not ex
pect the witnesses produced to speak
openly. General Lee’s report of the
circumstances of Ruiz’s death will be in
Washington tomorrow. In the mean
time I would not care to forestall it. I
have no doubt that it will be satisfac
tory to the American people.”
The Ruiz case was not Mr. Calhoun’s
only mission to Cuba. First of all, of
course, he was to determine if Dr. Ruiz
was murdered; if so, who was respon
sible, and if American citizens are now
detained in Spanish prisons in violation
of treaty rights.
It was proposed also to have the ex
isting state of affairs on the island in
vestigated for the information of Presi
dent McKinley to guide him in forming
a Cuban policy. Speaking of his inves
tigations of the condition of the island,
Mr. Calhoun said:
End of the War Not In Sight.
“There is no end of the war in sight.
The Spaniards tried to impress me with
the fact that it was over, but the Cu
bans with whom I talked expressed
great confidence and a determination to
carry on the fight to the end. The Span
iards claim that the Cuban army is
rapidly diminishing. The Cubans deny
such statements. So there you are. It
seems to me that there is something
about the atmosphere down there that
if the truth were sent forth naked and
unadorned the people would not recSg
nize It.”
Regarding American prisoners in
Cuba, Mr. Calhoun said that he visited
a number of them and found that they
were being well treated while he was in
Cuba.
“General Lee,” he said, "Is taking
very effective measures for their pro
tection. In fact, he is looking after the
interests of all Americans down there
with remarkable zeal. No man could be
more loyal or more patriotic in this re
spect.”
Mr. Calhoun said that he found very
few native Americans in Cuba who
were in actual want. There was a con
siderable number of naturalized Ameri
cans there, and General Lee was now
looking after them.
General Weyler in no way took per
sonal cognizance of the special commis
sioner’s presence in Havana, although
Mr. Calhoun was there as the personal
representative of the president.
The Devastation Terrible.
Weyler, with apparent premeditation,
remained away during Mr. Calhoun’s
presence in Havana, but a few days
after the American commissioner left
the captain general slipped into the
capital from a nearby town.
Marquis Ahumada, Mr. Calhoun said,
treated him with marked courtesy. The
devastation of Cuba, Mr. Calhoun de
clared, was terrible. Unless the war
was quickly terminated absolutely noth
ing would be left of the interior.
8S.000 For Her Teeth.
New York, June 8. — Miss Mary
Hughes of 254 West Thirty-eighth
street is suing the New York College of
Dentistry before Justice Bookstaver
