Under guidance of my friend I soon
reached Mr. Keely's work shop a small ,
two-story brick structure on North Twen
tieth street , Philadelphia. Hero , sur
rounded by hundreds of curious , unfix-
mMai' , contrivances , 1 found this man
w'liyjr 1 am not mistaken , will have a
name in history when his traduccrs shall
bo forgotten. John W Keoly is a man
whoso physicpio would be noticeable any
where. He is fully MX feet in height , with
n largohead , co.xl black eyes , d-irk com
plexion , and wearing constantly u
thoughtful expression , llo received mo
cordially , and after a few moments spent
iu giving some general inlormation , pro
ceeded to explain the "machines ho now
uses in the production and application of
his now force. '
"THE I.IUEIIA.TOII. "
This , as its name indicates , is the in
strument employed for generating and
garnering the force. It is a metallic in
strument about three feet in height , and
stands Upon n wooden pedestal , which
may "bo moved easily about the room , to
show that it has no connection with tubes
or pipes qr lovers by which power may bo
becretly communicated. The liberator
itself stands open before you , and may
be subjoe'teil to the closest investigation.
Near the bottom , lastoned upon u me
tallic rim , are four or live largo tuning
forks. These stand upright. Within
these , in a horizontal position , supported
by a small metallic standard in its centre ,
is a circular stool plate about eighteen or
twenty inches in diameter. Above and
around the machine , and attached to
higher rims , are several brass tubes ,
within which arc small , slender , vibrat
ing steel blades. On tlut top of the liber
ator is a brass globe four or live inches in
diameter , which is used to collect and re
tain the force until drawn oil' for use.
Having courteously shown all these
different parts of the liberator and given
the mo.it ample opportunity of guarding
ngaltlbt imposition , Mr. Keoly proceeds
to generate the now force named by him
" inter-atomic forco. "

bow' a few times across the stationary
tuning forks , and striking the circular
metallic plate a half-do/.ou times with a

is nil. In two minutes the machine is
charged and ready for business. That
this is so Mr. Kccly proceeds to show by

upper end nf this piston rests a long
heavy iron lover. To raise the lover alone

THE THIItU r.Xl'RllMiNT ! ; ,
\mi most wonderful of ull , is the
cation of this force to the running of
machinery. As this is the practical end
aimed at , and as this is the tct of sue-
cei * , I wish to lay before your readers a
report recently published in thoScientilic
Areim by its editor , lr A Wilford Hall ,
who with some thirty otherScientific : gen
tlemen recently investigated the now mo
tive power at Mr. Kecly's shop , extend
ing their investigations through four
hour" . Says Dr. Hall in the Arena for
July , 188(5 ( , page 50-
1 'These experiments having been con
tinued till satisfactory all iotin < l , and
until man } present had been supplied

important demonstration of all wa givcn

it.H'll , ollileli the world has heard so
much , and which consisted of a twenty-
live-horse power rotary engine actuated
alone by this so-called ctlieric vapor.
And hero we approach the description of
n performance In verj simple machinery
for which our readei.s will need to sum
mon all their resources ot credulity in
oriter not to suspect us of deliberate fab
rication. lt.it wo declare in advance that
what wo are about to state are facts of
which wo are n positively certain as we
are that wo were personally then and
"Tho 'engine , ' if it may be thus desig
nated , consists of a smooth hollow sphere
of metal about two feet in diameter. At
one end or polo of the sphere is lilted n
li\cd trunnion , around which it revolves ,
and at the other note n rotating trunnion
made fast to tlio sphere , and thus in
tended to revolve with it. On this revolv
ing trunnion , which extends as a shaft
beyond the frame which supports the
sphere , was secured a common pulley of
a foot or so in diameter and of about six
inches face , from which a belt of leather
led to n saw , turning-lathe , etc. , in the
room overhead. A valve-pipo leads into
the interior of the sphere through an
opening made in that trunnion , which
remains stationary with the iron frame
supporting the sphere. To the Inner end
of this lixod trunnion ( as was shown by a
similar sphere which was left open for
inspection ) are secured numerous reso
nating tubes ailu.6the ( % vibratory device ? ,
but which also remain stationary or fast
to the inner end ot the trunnion without
touching the revolving sphere.
" .Now comes the mystery of mysteries
in mechanical contrivances , namely , the
revolving of this sphere as the valve-
wheel at the trunnion is turned , thus ad
mitting the otheric vapor from the re
ceiver through the lloxible copper tube
as before described.
"How this 'engine' runs or on what
principle n mechanical foothold can bo
secured within this smooth , eniptyspherc
by the vapor for moving any kind of ma
chinery , was a matter concerning which
no one present ventured to proller oven
an approximate guess. Mr Keely ex
plains the process and the modus oper
and ! by saving that the gas when once
let into the spore takes a direction which
causes \ortcx or whirl around its axis ,
thus brushing its inner surface at enor
mous velocity ami tat | ] , this inter-atomic
vapor is of silcll penetrating nature
that it soi/.es upon the molecular struct
ure of the sphere itsc'f , thus propelling it
along with it in its prodigious Iliglit.
This , perhaps , is as good an explanation
as is possible to get at during the present
stage of his invention , though it is utterly
incomprehensible to the writer , even
after thinking and dreaming over it for
weeks since witnessing this marvelous
tcaturc in the working of the engine.
"What is most astonishing about the
rotation of this sphere , by simply turninjr
on the vapor , is tlic fact that there is no
escape for the gas anywhere after it has
done its work , nor any ouilct _ or exhaust-
pipe for such escape , as is well known to
bo absolutely necessary in the. use of any
gas , liquid or vapor known to mechanics ,
and by which engines are readily driven.
Instead of such apparently essential pro
vision it seems , when the pressure of
vapor is once admitted and the claimed
whirling process has commenced , that it
goes on indelinitely in some unaccounta
ble manner , doing its work with unabated
energy , and with no wings or internal
projecting abutments against which to
brace itself and thus exert a moving
pressure. And even if there were such
projecting abutments , the force , when
once inside tlio globe , must be free , ac-
coiding to the laws of iluid pressure , to
act on both sides of such projections ,
thus preventing all motion of the sphere
by stable equilibrium. This must be so ,
according to all known or even conceiva
ble principles or laws of mechaiiic.s. "
"Another.und perhaps still the strangest
performance of all , in tlio operation of
this engine , is the startling fact that Mr.
Keely can cause the sphere to revolve in
cither direction and with similar power
: md velocity by letting the gas in at the
same valve , and precisely in the same
way. Wo suggested to him several times
during the hour thp engine was working ,
which way to , starL the glebe revolving ,
and after touching it with his lingers and
moving it slightly in the direction wo
named'ho would turn on the force and
the revolutions would begin with almost
terrific velocity in the direction wo had
"This single fact , with absolutely no
exhaust ami witli no possible piston ar
rangement or movable abutment device
inside as in rotary steam , gas and water
engines , demonstrates to our mind be
yond the shadow of a doubt that the
sjihcro must revolve by the whirling mo
tion of the vapor inside of it , as lr.
Keelv cl'iims , and that the direction ot
this vortex , or whirl of gas , must bo de
termined by tlio initial push given the.
sphere bv the hand of the operator. This
initial push of the glebe in a now direc
tion must therefore change in some way
tlio oml nf the inlet pipe to an opposite
whirl nt the point whore it emerges from
the trunnion withiiKtlui.sphere. Still the
mystery of its tlirniii'i at. all remains the
"Wo have had sonio considerable ov-
pcrienco of late years in physical and
mechanical investigations , and , as our
friends believe , with some degree of suc
cess in solving intricate scientific prob
lems , but wo have never before been so
utterly nonplussed and at our wits' end
ns in trving to give a rational explanation
of this Keely engine on any known or
conceivable principles of physical science
"That the engine , as well ns the frame
on which it runs , is entirely disconnected
from the door , having no pipes , wires or
other devices loading below or outside of
the building by which extraneous power
can communicate with the sphere to
cause it to icvolvo , is incontcstibly cer
tain , since the fullest opportunity was
given us to sortitini/u every part of it and
the foundation on which it rested. That
it actually runs , with the , most tremendous
deus mechanical power tuid velocity ,
alone from the gas or vapor , or whatever
it is , lut into it by turning the valve- wheel
referred to , wo are willing to stake and
risk what little reputation wo have , or
ever expect to possess , tor bcloutillo or
mechanical sagacity. Wo have been
warned by friends since returning from
the exhibition ando\pres > ingour opinion
privately , not to injure our reputation by
a public statement of such facts , liut our
reply has been that nil the reputation wo
have earned has been from frankly avow
ing our conscientious convictions upon
every physical problem picscnting itself ,
and however much sued opinions might

ot science ,
"Tho power ot the ongluo to do cffl
ciont mechanical work was abundantly
demonstrated in sawing wood , runninp

nannor of question but that Mr. Keely
ins made startling discoveries both in a
icw and undreamed of motive power and
Is mechanical application to machinery

arc novel. "
So far. Dr. Hall. And now what is the
nev liable conclusion to which wo are
Iriven in view of these experiments re-
icated again and again , for years past ,
n the presence of the mo t competent
vltnessis ? Is it not that John W. Keely
uts developed from the utmospherlo air.
at its ordinary temperature and normal
HT.ssuro , by means of vibrations alone , a
icw force capable of application twhur-
svcr force may bo applied and utilised ?
le is now at work upon a larger and
n ore perfect engine one that will show
.V > 0 horse power and when this Is com-
ilctc.l , which will be done in two or three
nonths , we shall be prcpaicd for rcsulUs
hat will revolutionize the motive power
of the world.
Ami is this now force so utterly inv
irobable that it should bo rejected with-
nit investigation , us some seem to think ?
) oe.s not tlic atmospheric air under ecr-
ain conditions as in the tornado ox-
ilbit a power absolutely irresistible'
And what if Mr. Keely has discovered
the "hidings of this power , " and is able
to apply it to useful purposes , as many
other forces of nature are applied ? If
water , while in its normal condition , has
a certain force when applied to the wheel ,
and a very greatly intensified force when
expanded by heat into steam , why may
lot the atmospheric air bo subjected to
conditions which will develop miw
and wonderful characteristics ? The
writer of this article suggested in May
ast to Mr. Keely the title "Bottled Cy
clones" for Ins wonderful force. Who
can toll but that he is actually able to
control and govern the element , whatever
t may bo. vvliieh forages has been mani
fest in the irresistible energy of the
cyclone and tornado ?
It seems to bo forgotten by those who
are so ready to pronounce Air. Keely's
discovery impossible , that over since the
use of the mercury pump to produce a
vacuum , the atmospheric air , when in its
state of highest tenuity , has been discov-
jred bv scientists to present character-
sties which indicate that it has been
changed into an entirely new element in
lature. Just what this element is , re
mains as yet undetermined ; but that it is
no longer ordinary atmospheric air , is
settled. Says Francis 11. Upton , Mr.
lidison's mathematician , in Scribnor's
Monthly for February , 1880 , page fl8i :
"It is found that by the use of the mer
cury pumps and chemical appliances ,
where a perfect vacuum is formed , the
minute portion of air remaining shows
some remarkable properties. When elec
tricity under strong pressure passes
through an Edison lamp , the whole bulb
shines witli a delicate blue light. So re
markable is the behavior of various sub
stances in a vacuum prepared by means
of mercury pumps that physicists con
sider that a gas thus rarilied constitutes
mother state of matter , differing as much
: rom that of an ordinary gas ( either un
der atmospheric pressure , or with the
pressure removed by means of a common
iir pump ) as a gas differs from a liquid ,
or a liquid from u solid. "
If this is so , it requires no ordinary
temerity to pronounce in advance and
without investigation the Keely Motor an
mpossibility. In view of the advance-
nent made in t'ho last fifty years , all
nlong the line of sejentilio discovery , the
.ruo philosopher will be very slow to cry
"humbug" whenever a now invention is
mnounccd , however wonderful it may at
irst sight appear. Scores of witnesses
whoso llrst attitude toward the invention
under consideration , was that of absolute
skepticism , are now ready to aver that
iftcr caicful consideration and actual in
vestigation , they believe in Mr. Keely and
lis motor. One notable instance ol this
character has come to the knowledge of
the writer. A leading scientist of Phila
delphia , adopting the cry of the press of
iraud and hunibug against the Keely
Motor , refused for years to make a per
sonal investigation. _ At length , through
. 'ne earnest solicitation of a warm per
sonal friend , ho was persuaded to "come
and sec. " After a most careful and pro
tracted investigation he loft the shop and
walked some rods without uttering a
word. This friend at length asked his
opinion of what ho had seen. "Well , "
said he , " 1 must confess that I know of
nothing more wonderful , except the
miracles of Christ. " And yet , in tlio
opinion of the present writer , there is
nothing miraculous here. It is simply
the discovery pf a now force in nature ,
and the devising of a method by which
that force may bo utili/.ed.
