tho there is some loss.

True enough about the neon signs
" The body was evaporated or, generally speaking, disintergrated- meaning by
the latter term not only the throwing off of atoms, but likewise large lumps."
"In a highly exhausted bulb, electricity is carried off from the electrodes by
independent carriers, which are partly the atoms, or molecules of the residual
atmosphere, and partly the atorms, molecules, or lumps thrown off from the
electrode" Nikola

Disruptive discharge from a particular type coil was
used in the experiments. High potential currents
and alterations of 10,000 per second, 
to cause partical bombardment in a partially 
evacuated tube.

I think you are correct, however in his search he discovered charged 
particles. Charged particles can be manupilated by electromagnets,
and accoustic resonance.
