San Francisco ChroiwU Professor Jo seph Leidy of the University of Pennsylvania and president of the Philadelphia Academy of Natural Science witnessed experiments by Keoly of motor fume yesterday In an interview pub lished this morning ho declares that Keely bus discovered a new force distinct from magnetism or electricity After the Hniil experiment which was the raising of a weight by striking a sympa thetic lone Dr Leidy was asked this question Doctor is it true that this unknown force has actually before your oyes tho force of gravity with which wo are all familinr The answer slowly nnd deliberately was I pee no escape from that conclusion As 1 under stand it claims he has a force to produce an interference with the magnetic current to the earth The earth is enveloped in a magnetic cur rent as an orange is with its rind The test ex periment he made was what announced as being the propagation and application of thu force through the atmosphere from one room to an other without other medium of conveyance than a silk cord The door a little back shop the existence of which until then was unsuspected was now opened and a silk cord passed from the transmitter to a large bronze globe mounted on an axis horizontally The other end of the cord was not fastened to the globe but to a slender bar of steel supported on near it A plate of glass an inch thick wns put between the end of the resonant steel bar and the A similar piece of glass was put between the wall and the other end of the bar Glass was put un the uprights which supported tho bar Glass plates Were also under tho upright which supported the axis of the globe Keely then look a harmonica in his hands and allowing the silk cord from thetransmitter to pass over ihe began to sound notes on it When the sympathetic he said was struck thevi oratory force he doclnred was conveyed along the silk cord The bronze globe which was about fourteen inches in diaraotcr to revolve about axis Paster mid faster as Kecley played the globe whirled Some said Dr Leidy 1 suppose a young lady will bo tvblo to play on the piano and set her fathers mill to grinding I see no pos sible source of deception This demonstration was wonderful There is no explanation of the effect thus produced except by vibratory force such as Keely assigns as the Dr with an air of conviction Would you care TO be quoted to that effect bo was asked I have said he Ho walked over and examined the apparatus of the last dem onstration The card was inspected and chipped into pieces some of which were given to each of those 7 I expect to solve the question of aerial navi said for I can already move a weight up and down la the atmosphere or even in Nobody offered any remark on this remarkable declaration What is the forco with which 1 expect to do this The same sym pathetic attractive force which holds the planets together The force is dual The sympathetic negative disassociates molecules just as the sym pathetic positive associates them
