FEBRUARY 9, 1901- ELECTRICAL WORLD AND ENGINEER 2 SLABY ON TESLA.-A special cable dispatch of Jan. 30 from Berlin says: “Prot'. Slaby, of the Technische Hochschule, said in an interview to-day that he expected to revolutionize telegraphy if he was successful in applying his etheric system, which he calls spark telegraphy, to the present system of transmission by \vire. He added that thousands of telcgrams could then be transmitted simultaneously by the same wire. He characterized Nikola Tesla’s expectations of an enormous reduction in the cost of electric currents as those of a fanatic, and said that the immediate future does not promise an im- provement in the cost of conduction."
