CONTROL 0FJHE ETHER WAY
Struggle Among Governments for
Prtvncy tn Wireless
A struggle for right-of-way in the air Is
already In progress between rival govern
ments. The battleground for control of
the ether way la In the far corner of the
northwest, on the Paclflo frontier, where
the wireless operators for the Canadian
government are wondering If a satisfactory
agreement can be made with American
operators so that neither will conflict in
sending aerograms. When two wireless
stations are working another station In
that vicinity can break Into the ether way,
with Interference aa tha result. Science haa
devised what la known aa a "tuner," by
whloh an operator can "tune out," or,
tn other worda, shut off station which he
doe not wish to hear, but thl operation
reduoes the use of the atmosphere, so that,
In the end, the struggle Is but little further
advanced than if the "tuner" had not been
called into use. The "tuner" has the ad
vantage, however, of permitting the oper
ator to work unmolested.
Four separate interest are likely to
clash for the air over Fuget sound and
around the Island of Vancouver, and this
condition is without parallel elsewhere
The Canadian government has Six or more
active instruments: the American has
placed station at Bremmerton and Ta
tooah, while the vessels of the Pacific
Coast Steamship company are equipped
with wireless systems, besides which there
Is a' great commercial company with rfval
Interests. There is a verbal understanding
that the Dominion inatrumenta shall work
a certain part of the hour, with the Ameri
can or the commercial company having a
turn, but thla agreement Is simply an un
derstanding, and at any time It may be
overthrown. Then will follow a struggle
for control, to be won by the most power
The American, government haa evidently
foreseen a possible contingency, and Its
warships are being equipped with the most
powerful Instruments of practical we on
shipboard. It Is stipulated that they
shall be able to receive messages 3,000
miles away, and to send messages 1,000
miles, and It la planned to establish a num
ber of land stations able to send wireless
messages 3,000 miles. One of these high
power stations will be erected near Wash
ington, D. C. Wireles experts, because of
this, are wondering If the government is
planning to control the ether way bv
might. Meanwhile, there Is nothftig tu
prevent the Canadian government from
building wireless stations capable of In
terfering with the United Ststea navy com
munications, and it la true that aome of
the commercial companies have some of
the ablest wireless Inventors ami engineer
in the world on their staff, who are at
liberty to tamper with the waveleta at will.
If congress should attempt to pass a bill
regulating the use of the atmosphere It
could not hope to control the entire ether
envelope, and a station of sufficient power
on a desert isle, would be able to fight for
a share of ether waves without Interfer
There Is a possibility that "tuner" may
yet be Invented capable of overcoming In
terference, and. Indeed, two Italians are
already claiming that they have' solved
the problem of absolutely Independent
wireless operation. This, they explain, hus
been accomplished by means of two rect
angular aerials fixed at right angles and
so attached to (he apparatus for reception
and transmission aa to permit tha trans
mission of unequal currents. By a simple
law of mechanics these two electric mag
netic field and the Hartxlan waves are
projected In a single vertical plane, which
ean be altered Instantly by means of the
Boblne device. This device may go a
long way toward settling the problem, still
It is doubted that even this will prevent
other stations interfering with those that
There is another element of uncertainty
which is complicating the situation, and

that Is what part Japan may play In the
Fuget sound struggle for right-of-way In
the atmosphere. Some months ago the
operator at Russia Hill, San Francisco,
began picking up mysterious messages in
the great unknown way, and ha Jotted
down the lettera and signals which, to
his trained ear, seemed to be a mixture
of continental and Morse codes. A code
book containing the systems in use by Ori
ental countrlea demonstrated that he had
picked up a message direct from Japan,
5.761 miles dlHtant, establishing the long
distance record of the world. While Japan
Is not at present a dangerous competitor
for the ether way. still she has solved the
secret of powerful sending Instruments,
and tho little brown men may yet perfect
a receiving apparatus. Japan agents are
already In this country, trying to solve
the (secrets of the patented receiving do- -vicea
possessed by the Americans, and,
sooner or later, the "Yankees of the far
east" will discover the secret. If they do,
then what? Perhaps the powers of the
world will be called upon to establish a
right-of-way over the air above the Pa
