Patchogue, L. I., Aug. 6. - Nikola Tesla, the electrician, has planned to establish a plant at Wardenclyffe, which will be the principal station of his system of wireless telegraphy. It is said the plant, when completed, will have cost about $150,000. The land purchased by him comprises 200 acres, and a number of buildings will be erected, the largest of which will be 100 feet square. An electrical plant of 850 horse power will be located in the main building.

Mr. Tesla has closed the contract for the erection of the buildings and plant. He also proposes to erect a laboratory, where he will conduct his electrical experiments. The proposed plant at Wardenclyffe will be the first of a number that the electrician proposes to establish in this and other countries.
