G.P.O. AND MARCONIGRAMS. THE PROJECTED AGREEMENT. Mr. Marconi has explained to a Press repre- sentative his views on the projected agreement between the Marconi Wireless Telegraph Com- pany and the Post Office. "The negotiations between our company and the Post Office have been proceeding for some time," said Mr. Marconi, "and throughout Mr. Austen Chamberlain has been very straightfor- ward in the matter. I welcome the experiments that are being carried on by the Post Office with other systems of wireless telegraphy before any agreement is concluded with the Marconi Com- pany. What the other systems are that are being tried I don't know. The Marconi system has already been accepted by the Admiralty and by Lloyd's, and by the principal shipping com- panies with all of whom we have long agree- ments. That is proof conclusive that those au- thorities think the Marconi system the best, otherwise it would not have been accepted. But the Post Office authorities are dilly-dallying over the agreement, and little if anything is being done in the matter. I had a lot of trouble before I got a private line installed from Poldhu in order to carry the messages received there to the Post Office stations inland. "We are in no way competing with the Post Office in the matter of transmission of telegrams we simply act as their agents. All our business is being done with ships at sea from our shore stations, and it is in order to facilitate the for- warding of these messages to their destinations that we desire the agreement. "I do hope some understanding will be come to, but still the agreement with the Post Office is not essential to our existence, although it would be beneficial to both parties. "As to the Berlin Conference on the different systems of wireless telegraphy, that is not a. company concern, but an International Confer- eilee summoned by the German Emperor. I hope, therefore, that the British representatives will stick up for the British co-inpany. The only British company is the Marconi Company, which was incorporated and financed in London."
