Using concentric cylinder electrodes, observations were made on negative corona in hydrogen, argon, and nitrogen at pressures between 1 and 10 cm. of mercury. Positive ions produced by X-rays passing through argon in the corona chamber produced no measurable secondary effects at potentials below onset. Currents maintained by photo emission from the cathode became unstable at a potential near but definitely below onset.
