Well a carbon microphone element needs power. Carbon mics work by the resistance varying when the diaphram moves. So an AC audio signal is generated by varying the current that is flowed through the element. I can't recommend exactly a schematic but hopefully this sheds some light. One thing is for sure you will need power. Just do some googling

At least I think it's a carbon element

Well i took it from an old telephone and the back looks like an Edison carbon element but it no power cables attached to the harness

I dunno, do some research. Probably depends on the mic element.

The harness has two leads that are supposed to have something connected
