At a meeting of the Marconi Wireless Telegraph Company held in London last week, Marconi stated that the next series of tests would include the transmission of words and messages a cross the Atlantic. He said that there was nothing to prevent the company from undertaking commercial communication with ships at sea. The system is in permanent use on board seventy ships and there are twenty-five land stations. Mr. Marconi stated that defects with reference to secrecy had been removed, and that his transmission of twenty-two words in a minute compared favorably with the work of the cables.

The inventor said that the obstructions which were thrown in his way on that side of the Atlantic were in marked contrast with the generous encouragement he received from the government and press in the United States and Canada.
