Wirele.').') plays ' jin even more important part than Visual signalling In naval warfare. It Is Important enough in peace, and llio .American fleet bad by no means neglected the' subject. Rut aerial conditions in the region (if .Vlanllla differ cori-siderhbly from Ihoso in the North Sea. Speaklnij radlograpliically, tho North Sea Is the most cfowded thoroughfare In  the world. Alt through the 21 hours �hlps and subniBrlneH and shore wlrclftss stations are talking, talking,' talking. � Brltisli w.Trn-' ings to,,8hlppin� ,on Its lawful occasions, streams of lies from Berlin (branded at the outset "German Press Message")' cypher sryptograms from three aduilraltlos, destroyers bleating In a fog, appeals from hunted merchantmen, all these intorsppr.'sed with the gibbering Tclerunkun ot the German submarine. Now tho American wireless expRrta have been concerned prlnclpnlly with covering long distances. The develefp-ment of "spark" and power in a comparatively undisturbed aether was the main preoccupation ot their opera-toi's. From this serene condition, ships and 8-llent cabinets irasscd into the windy parrot house* of the North S�i. Here power, as they understood the term, was nogllgihle. The greatest distance required of their llortizlan waves was a prepo.storous -100 miles or so. But not only hud I hey to thread a way unbroken through this aerial IJabel, but, what was even more difficult, the operator was required to detect and read messages on one tune In a vast discord- of diverse and unfamiliar notes. It is even said that an Englisliman's touch on a sending key differs from that of an American as radically as the spoken accent differs. Yet, after a month of assiduous practice, tho former are in a fair way to presenting as few difficulties to communication as the latter.  � * � � So much for the technical aspect of the affair. But there is another to consider; each nation having evolved, perfected and adopted a system, considers it. Ipso facto, the best system in the world. To ask a segment of tliat nation to dump the cherished thing overboard and adopt tho theory and practice ot another nation "likely, not so good" is. demanding much. That the order was not obeyed Instantly goes without saying. But let It ba noted tliat it was obeyed in a , spirit of .uncritical loyalty and w^ole-Bouled enthusiasm by every man 'concerned, trom admiral-to signal boy. To this the British Commander-in-Chief ha� testified.  ' � But, after all. these matters are merely externals. In adopting Brjt'sh methods of communications and staff work for the smooth working of the whole the American ships have not lost a jot ot their identity. Their customs remalh, with their, tradlttons, American. Indeed, these are ' but thrown into stronger relief; amV the British fleet around them is noting drawing comparisons with intent interest, as two scions of the same family might meat and study gesturp or physiognomy, seaichirig ' eagerly for kindred tralti. And dally th^ bonds are tightening. � > ,  .
