TRIUMPH OF WIRELESS.
Wireless communication throughout' the Australian squadron has reached a high state of perfection, as a result of continued experiments. During the cruise of the flagship through New Zealand waters attempts were made to converse with Sydney, but were not successful. The only way a connection was effected was through a "link"—a warship crossing the Tasman Sea. During the week, however, the vessels of the squaclj-on stationed in Hobson's Bay have despatched several service messages, and these have been easily received in Sydney. The naval people are of the opinion that it is only a matter of time •when a complete service of "wireless" will he established between ships of the squadron at different ports. I An excellent ( service was maintained on Monday night last between H.M.S. Pyramus moored in Farm Cove and the, flagship in Hobson's Bay. Lengthy service messages came through without a hitch, and were quickly transmitted. The, atmospheric conditions, from a "wire- ■ less" enthusiast's point of view, were ideal.
