Shore Station at Siasconset Communicates Several Times with Balloon. Freaa the Marconi Wireless atatlea at Btaeeeaaet. SIASCONSET, Mass., (Nantucket Island) Oct. 16. The Wellman airship America was in communication with the Marconi station here at 9 o'clock this morning. She is in a dense fog and her exact whereabouts are doubtful, but, judging from the strength of the wireless signals, M assume the airship to be very close to the Island of Nantucket. Her wireless apparatus is working splendidly and the airship is in constant communication with the shore and ocean liners, this proving conclusively the efficiency of wireless in aerial navigation. A brisk westerly breeze is blowing. SIASCONSET, Mass.,, Oct. 16, Noon. The Wellman airship reports all well on board. She is now heading east by north, presumably following the track of the ocean liners. The weather is still foggy. The Marconi operator on the America is extremely brief, preferring to husband his limited power for emergencies or important news. SIASCONSET, Mass., Oct. 16, 12:45 P. M. The Wellman airship was called by wireless and asked whether they were still O. K. Very faintly came the reply in one single " Yes," indicat- TH OF THE WAY ACROSS ing that they are now well east of. Nantucket. This will probably be the last; direct communication with the air ship from this point, but all ocean liners are keeping a sharp lookout and will report developments. SIASCONSET, Mass., Oct. 16. The wireless operator on the America reported that the engines had been stopped, hence the dynamo was not running. He said "juice was precious," from which I assumed he was working off the storage battery and hence husbanding his limited power. NOT SEEN BY THE ARABIC. By Marrenl Wireless ta The New York Times. S.
