Alfred Hubbard Now Owns $5000
Racing Koadstcr and Talks of
SEATTLE. July 29. (Special.)
Alfred M. Hubbard, Seattle boy in
ventor who has harnessed an un
known force, apparently drawn out
of the air, which he transmits to an
electric dynamo, thus produciug
power, has again got the savants of
the electrical world guessing. jje re
peated his demonstration with his
power generator in a small launch
before a larger crowd today. Yes
terday the trial was made for the sole
purpose of satisfying a local capital
ist that he had something worth in
vesting his money in.
Hubbard, since his return from
Washington, D. C, in January, when
ha patented his device, has put in all
of his time working on his coil, and
experimenting with it in connection
with X rays. He now claims he will
be able to develop something new in
this respect within a short time.
Today Hubbard made a. half dozen
trips about Portage bay and Lake
Union, carrying two to four passen
gers in the boat beside himself and
a mechanic. He was besieged this
morning by dozens of persons desir
ous of seeing his Invention In opera
tion. Many of these he refused to
talk to, others he told of his pro
posed trials today. He offered no
explanation other than "he didn't
want to," for not allowing all to see
his invention: There were nearly 100
persons today at the Seattle Tacht
club piers when the trials started.
The getaway was accomplished with
out a hitch. With the application of
the wires from Hubbard's coil the
motor hummed into action. Such
speed was gained with the motor
idling that it spun for more than two
minutes after the wires were discon
Hubbard Conceals Backing;.
Hubbard Is silent as to what back
ing he has received in work of de
veloping the coil. Last January,
when he first made known that he
had invented the coil. Hubbard had
little or no money. He now owns a
racing roadster which cost $5000
f. o. b. Seattle: has purchased for his
father an equally fine car, replenished
his wardrobe, taken on weight and
talks seriously of buying and operat
ing a railroad when he realizes on
Several experts were among those
who witnessed the operation of the
Hubbard coil today. None is willing
to be quoted, and none is emphatic
in expressing belief or disbelief in
the coll. Hubbard invited them
aboard. They picked up the coil,
turned it over, satisfied themselves
that it was not attached to a storage
battery, and then they examined the
motor. The examination in each
case was satisfactory. The experts
said frankly that Hubbard had evi
dently discovered a new principle,
hut The experts don't know
what. They admit that, even if his
coil 18 a storage battery, which Hub
bard positively claims It is not, oe
cause it Is not charged, and does not
have to be. he has made an impor

age battery contained in the space of
the Hubbard coil that would give the
nnwpr it does.
The capitalist who was shown the
new coil and what it can ao win
have an expert of his own examine
the coil before the end of the week.
In the meantime young Hubbard is
dividing hl3 time between his boat
and burning up the roads between
Seattle and Everett, where his labora
tory is now located. Twice this week
he has been arrested for speeding.
The coil used was built especially
fur the demonstration and is nearly
twice the size of the coil used in his
demonstrations last winter.
' Device la Patented.
The large coil cost approximately
$90 to construct. The inventor says
that, so far as he has been able to
lmm. its life as a power unit is In
definite. He declared that a coil
large enough to drive an airplane
would be no more than three times
the size of the coil used Wednesday,
and that aA machine thus equippea
could flv around the world without
stopping, so far as power supply is

the claims for it are so broad that
Hubbard says he does not leel safe
in making public its secret. In gen
eral, he says, it is made up of a
group of eight electro-magnets, each
with primary and secondary winding
of copper wire, which are arranged
around a large steel core. The core
likewise, has a single winding. About
the entire group of coils is a sec
A coil thus constructed, he says, is
lifeless until given an initial impulse
This is done by connecting the ends
of its windings for a fraction of a
second to an ordinary house-lighting
circuit, he says.
The manner of this momentary
charging, however, constitutes the
principal secret of the device, accord
ing to the inventor, who says that,
-while machinists have buflt a num
ber of colls for him under hjis direc
tion, they have been unable to "start"
In the event the power of the coil
should diminish, it can be rejuvenat
ed in less than a second, Hubbard

Mr. Malone declared a militant third

"With a democratic president and a

Mr. Malone declared the meat in

British labor party," he continued, "is
