TRANS-ATLANTIC
WIRELESS TODAY

Will Send Commercial Mes-
sages from Morien to Ireland
— Manager Vyvyan
Injured

Special to The Morning Chronicle
    Sydney, N. S. Oct 16 — Mr. Vy-
vyan, the manager of the Marconi
station at Port Morien, received in-
juries today while experimenting in
the operating room of the towers
which will incapacitate him for work
for some time.  Mr. Vyvyan was
standing by the side of an operator
engaged in transmitting a message,
when his hand was caught by a rap-
idly revolving wheel, seriously crush-
ing the member.  The manager was
immediately removed to his home,
where the wound was dressed by a
physician.  It is said that by reas-
on of the accident Mr. Vyvyan will
be unable to perform his duties in
connection with the station for some
time, and that he will be unable to
take part in the formal opening set
down for tomorrow.
    Mr. Marconi, when seen tonight,
declared everything to be in first
class shape for tomorrow's event.
The transmitting instruments are
working perfrectly, while the station
at Clifden, Ireland, is apparently
fully prepared for its part in the pro-
gramme.  The inventor is in the
best of spirits tonight and expresses
himself as being confident of tomor-
row's experiment.  Besides the per-
sonal friends of Mr. Marconi now re-
siding at the towers, there will be
but four others present at the open-
ing tomorrow, three of whom will
be representatives of the Press.
