Activity of Volcano Attracts Atten
tion Despite llintrr to the
NATLES. March . (Special Cahlegroin
to The Bee.) The activity of Vesuvius and
the consequent obstruction of tup moun
tain railway by lava have lather In
creased than decreased the interest of the
volcano so far aa tourists are concerned.
At first it was supposed that the tourists
would be entirely frightened away by the
activity of the volcano. It ia found, how
ever, that they can be safely conveyed
to the spot where the lava has flowed tut
on to the rail say line and that they take
the greatest Interest in watching the prog
ress of the molten stream down the moun
tain aide. In some places the lava Is found
aw to 3U0 feet wide, completely covering the
railway. Men in the employ of Cook's
agency have been at work for several
weeks on the obstruction reconnecting the
railway cables and the telegraph und tele
phone wires. Th trouble Ik, however, that
no sooner sre tho damages of Vesuvius
repaired in one place than trouble breaks
out In another direction.
Not only haa the activity of Vesuvius
attracted the regular tourist, but It has
called to Naples a greut many crank.
One American claiming to be a college
professor, at the hotel lobbies during the
past few duya haa been moat earnest and

eruption of the volcano Is only a forerun

STuCklluUil, Matcn S. (Special Cable
gram to Tiie tlee.) Two liupoi titnt tele
phone developments show tnai bweden is
in the Iron I tuna when it comes to tbe
matter of tne utilization ut many of the
modern inventions. T nese Inventions have
already been officially adopted by the
Swedish government. It Is hoped by these
means to bring about the universal uboll- I
tloii of tbe tnlvrolH-la.len mouthpiece of I
tha preent day telephone. Tne new ;
mechanism Is saiu to be very ingemoua, one
being available for commercial and pri
vate usu and the other fur military held
operations and rallwuy work.
The invention known as the m.-nophone,
which is tor commercial use, has a re
ceiver of a new tpe. and of exceptional
carrying power. It is about ten Inches
long, witll a plain handle, funnel-shaped at
one end. This funnel, whether held above
or below or to the back of the head or
pointed upward or downward, collects the
speaker s voice and transmits his words.
As the, user must not apply the fuutiel
close tu his mouth, the hygienic advan
tages are obvious. As the direct current of
air does not come into contact with the
membrane of the funnel, all disturbing
vibrations are avoided and perfect articu
lation is secured. The Invention is the
work of Mr. Holinstrom, the chief engineer
of the Swedish telegraph office, and Is said
to be much cheaper than most telephonic
attachments designed to produce similar
The other Invention Is a field telephone
and sound telegraph for mllltarw put poses.
It was first designed by Lieutenant L.
Jungman of the Swedish Royal Engineers.
By Its aid a body of troops, horse or foot,
can ke, p In constant touch with a general
officer at the base of operations without
delaying the march. The apparatus Ij
simple to a degree. It consists of a small
brass cjiinder about nine Inches long by
three In diameter, containing a dry bat
tery and a speaking receiver, which la
strapped to th chest of the soldier. Fixed
to his back are small drums, which, al-
though light, can hold 3fK miles of wire,
the bae end being, of course, attached
to a receiver. Strapped to the ear of the
cavalryman Is anothrr receiver, which is
also connected with a cylinder. As the
trooper gallops along the wiretinrolls from
the drum and It may either be allowed to
Ha on the ground or be picked up by a
soldier following, who places it on the
branches of trees. The cylinder receiver
la so sensitive thai although It is placed
somo twelve inches below the mouth of
tho trooper lie need not even bend his
head to speak Into It: or. If more convep.
lent, the Instrument ran be used as a
field sound telegraph by employing the
Morse system. For the foot soldier a
lighter instrument Is provided. An adspla-
tlon of this telephone lias been made for
use by railway section hands to enable
them to notify the nearest station of any

The one redeeming feature Is that while

summarized only for the England and

ing fact regarding the birth and death

WILDEST FANATICISM OF AGE
Elder Patterson F presses Ilia
Opinion of Hla Son's Vrw
NEW YORK. March 3. R. W. i'atturson,
editor of the Chicago Tribune, does not
share In the socialistic views expressed
yesterday by his son. Joseph .Medlll Patter
son, the former commissioner of public
woiks of Chicago. The elder Mr. Patterson
and his son were at the Holland house In
this city today and both cxpreesnd decided
opinions upon the subject. Tha younger
mah"rcltertor the statements -voiced yes
terday after tils resignation as commis
sioner of public works of Chicago had be
come known. Ills father declared It to bo
Ills belief that "socialism la one of the
wildest fanaticism of the age."
He added that the real reason his son
gave up his municipal office was because
he had been asked to do things for which
he could have been Indicted and for which
ho should have been indicted had he done
them. While be did not at' all agree with
his son's theories, Mr. Patterson said he
conceded to every man the right to think
for himself, and added that a mere differ
ence of opinions would not be permitted to
make any difference In the relation between
his son and himself.
"If sous did not have any different Ideas
from their fathers," he said, "we would
be back In the days of Abraham."
The younger Mr. Patterson will remain
In New York several day to participate
In :he conference on socialism which was
called by James O. Phelp Stokes. R. W.
Patterson nnd his daughter will return
to Chicago at once.
