London Correspondence New York
World: For some weeks experiments
of great interest In wireless telephony
as distinguished from wireless teleg
raphy have been carried on near Car
navon by Sir William Pierce. Four
high poles have been erected at the
south end of Menal straits on a sand
bank across the Gwyrfal river. Half
a mile off four similar poles were
erected. Half a mile still farther is a
high pole supporting a coil of wire,
with one end anchored in deep water.
Between these points Sir William has
succeeded, without any intermediary
other than ether, in transmitting the
sound of a succession of taps. The
taps were made with a view to sending
messages by the Morse code. They
were distinctly heard at the receiving
station by placing a newly invented
ethereal telephone to the ear. Mes
sages were sent without interruption
for several days. Further experiments
are contemplated. So far the system
yields much more rapid results than
Marconi's, although the sounds are not
quite so distinct.

To Spend SCO, 000,000 on Oar Navy.
The United States has fallen into
line with Great Britain and Russia
Id wanting a new naval outfit that will
cost from $50,000,000 upward. Each
of the two last named countries says
It needs an extraordinary naval in
crease in order to keep pace with the
other. The United States wants $60,
000,000 worth of new outfits for our
navy because of the large and widely
scattered interests it has now to pro
tect. According to present plans our
navy now requires, or will require as
soon as they can be constructed, three
first-class battleships of 13,000 tons
displacement each, three armored
cruisers of 12,000 tons each, three pro
tected cruisers of 6,000 tons each, and
six unprotected cruisers of 5,000 tons
each. Our new navy needs greater
weight and speed, a minimum of
wood work, fewer thirteen-inch guns
and more secondary battery weapons.
