Cable Companies Apparently Pear Its
Competition Their Charters Arc
Not Effective Against New Invention.
New York, Dec. 18. That William
Marconi's wireless experiments in New
foundland cannot be stopped by the
Anglo-American Telegtaph Company,
even by resort to tbe courts, is the as
sertion of Mr. Marconi's representatives
bere. They further state tbat be can
not be stopped even from transmitting
commercial messages. They say the
charter of the Anglo-American Company,
by which it claims monopoly of tele
graghio communication between New
foundland and other places, was
examined by counsel for tbe Marconi
Company before an attempt was made
to experiment in Newfoundland. They
decided that the charter would not
interfere with the sending of wireless
messages to and from Newfoundland
even to the two years tbe charter bas
yet to be ran.
They declare in the first place that a
charter monopoly would not- operate to
estop scientific experiments and second,
that according to English decisions inch
a grant would not operate to bar an
invention tbat was unknown at tbe time
the concession was granted.
C. Cothbert Hall, general manager for
the Maroaui Wireless Telegragti Com
pany, said in an interview :
"Wears rather glad than otherwise
that this attempt to stop Mr. Marconi
bas been mad. Even if we go cm
further in Newfoundland, although we
can do so if we wish, it will do as no
barm. There are places along the coast
equally available. The interference
shows, to my mind, that tbe cable
companies look on os as a dangerous
competitor. It rather pleases me as an
acknowledgment of tbe fact that wire
less telegraphy is a coming force."
Edward H or man, counsel for the Mar
coni Telegraph Company :
"This action by tbe Anglo-American
Company is a surprise to me, as I bad
supposed tbat there wonld be no hostility,
direct or indirect. Before Mr. Marconi
attempted to make experiments in New
foundland, I went over the Anglo
American charter with a view of deter
mining his rights. It is elear that the
company eaunot atop scientific experi
ments. Tue company seems to have
feared active competition and therefore
we have taken tbe ball by tbe boras."

Castle Bab, Ireland, Dee. 18 The
hearing of tbe charges of holding meet
inge and delivering intimidating speeches
in defiance of tbe police brought against
Connor O'Kelly , M. P., chairman of tbe
Mayo council, and several other officials
of Mayo county, was concluded today.
Mr. O'Kelly was sentenced to two
months' Imprisonment and four other
defendants ranging from a fortnight to a
month- All tbe sentences imposed were
without hard labor.
Tbe court refused tbe demand of tbe
defendants for leave to appeal from tbe
jurisdiction of tbe court. Tbe refusal of
tbe oonrt was due to tbe fact tbat tbe
defendants refused to promise not to
peak publicly in the interim.
