Wireless Messages across the Oceans

The Chicago Record-Herald

THE public is never unprepared for announcements of new discoveries and inventions by Nikola Tesla, the wonder worker in electricity. It means much to the industrial and commercial progress of the world that this tireless wizard is concentrating his inventive skill and research upon the one great problem of evolving and perfecting a long-distance system of wireless telegraphy. Ever since Mr. Tesla conducted his remarkable experiments on Pike's Peak, Colorado, the public has been confidently looking to him for further developments in a form of electrical transmission that may revolutionize present methods of telegraphic communication.

Mr. Tesla was quick to see that the greatest field for the immediate utilization of wireless telegraphy was in the transmission of messages across the seas. His experiments have therefore been largely directed toward the solution of the problem of marine communication. The announcement from New York that the complicated apparatus by which he expects finally to establish wireless transatlantic communication is completed portends some remarkable feats in this direction. Three stations have been arranged for Tesla's experiments on the other side of the Atlantic—one in portugal, one in France, and one in Germany. By the end of this month it is expected that mechanism designed by Tesla for the transatlantic service will be in position.
