Thanks for finding this jewel of a quote.  That  pretty much provides
the solid evidence that Tesla was using longitudinal  waves within a
charged environment for his wireless power transmission  system.  Good
work.

>From this we can see the importance of  the third coil acting as a
capacitor.  The capacitance is needed to  transfer energy from the
inductive/capacitance resonance of the  primary/secondary coils to a
pure E field resonance in the third  coil.  The E field resonance
"disturbs the charge of ground and  air."

Sorry Guys,

If you look at the entire entry for that date in CSN, you will see that  this
day's notes and the previous 4 days were plans and speculations, NOT
accomplished facts. (Emphasis is mine)

"June 5, 1899

Induction Method: results with apparatus TO BE USED calculated  from

M = p^2 s^4 Wp Vt^2 / 32^2 D^6 S^2 (This formula is VERY  problematical)

M = power in secondary or receiving unit
p = 2 pi n, estimated 40 000 = 4 x 10^4
s = length of side of square circuit = 1200 = 12 x 10^2 cm
Wp = power spent in primary = 4 x 10^10 ergs assumed
Vt = total volume of wire in both circuits = 25 x 10^3 cu.cm.
D = distance from center to center of circuits (horizontal)
S = specific resistance of wires =1.7 x 10^3

Taking M to be the minimum 0.3 ergs to affect relay, it is found that with
the above circuits and under such conditions about 1 mile communications SHOULD
BE possible. With circuits 1000 meters square, about 30 miles. From this,
the  inferiority of the induction method would appear immense as compared with
disturbed charge of ground and air method."

That pretty much provides ZERO evidence that Tesla was using  longitudinal
waves within a charged environment for his wireless power  transmission system.

It DOES show that his expected efficiency from induction method over  his
mile distance was 0.3 / (4x10^10)=0.000000075%

It seems that in the brief "jewel of a quote" cited, once again, selective
editing was used to mislead the faithful.
