Modem Electrical Theory


    IF Franklin had re-visited this globe a dozen years ago he would have found his view of the electric fluid in the descendent. The work of Hertz and his successors had completed the work which Faraday and Maxwell began in directing the attention of physicists to the asther as the region in which real electrical actions proceed. The conductor was made to take a secondary place only as a region in which oelectrical energy ceases to be electrical, being dissipated therein into heat. The supposition of one electrical fluid (or more) was scouted, and relegated to the daily Press.
