How Scientists Interpret Hccent
Following close on the nppalling
destruction of St. Pierre by Pelee
and the havoc wrought on the
island of St. Vincent by Ia Sotif
riere, the outbreak of the volcano
Santa Maria in Guatemala is 'a
matter of the greatest possible inter
est to scientists. Dr. Edward O.
Hovey of the American Museum of
Natural History, says the Brooklyn
Eagle, who was one of the first on
the scene of Martinique's disaster,
said that, while there was undoubt
edly some connection between the
volcanic outbreak in the West
Indies and the volcanic outbreak in
Central' America, it was not clear
just what it was. In response to an
inquiry whether as a result of their
investigations into the tragedy of
St. Pierre scientists had evolved
any new theories about volcanic
action, he replied succinctly,
"Bunches of them!" But he ad
mitted also that the theories were
merely theories, and that, while
there were as many of them as
there were men, in a position to
theorize, none of them could as yet
be regarded as sufficiently sub
stantiated for general scientific
Professor Heilprin, who made,
perhaps, the most exhaustive in
vestigations of the outbreaks of
Pelee and Soufriere and was an
eyewitness to several subsequent
eruptions in fact, it was at one
time feared that he had lost his life
in one of them regards the activity
of Santa Maria as confirmation of
the theory to which his investiga
tions have led him. He believes
that the unwonted volcanic up
heavals in tropical North America
arc all surface mairifestations of ex
tensive changes that are taking
place in the ocean bed, changes that
involve a considerable subsidence
of the Caribbean sea.
According to Professor Heilprin
the lesser Antilles are the outcrop
pings of a subterranean north
easterly extension of the Andean
mountain range. The islands are
merely the tops of particularly lofty
peaks. To his mind the Andes
when they reach Colombia are
divided, one branch being shortly
submerged and only here and there
pushing a peak above the sea level;
the other, the main branch, extend
ing up the entire Pacific Coast lines
of Central and North America and
eventually making its way over to
Asia by way ,of the Aleutian
This theory of the subsidence of
the Caribbean involves the theory
of settling of the ocean bed in that
part of the world, and its cracking
as it settles. Through these great
cracks it is believed that the sea has
leaked in upon the superheated in
terior of the earth and vast quanti
ties of steam have been generated
which have forced a way out at
various points in what geologists
call the "line of weakness," that is
along the line of least resistance.
Talc and Soapstone.
Talc is a very common mineral
and is widely distributed. It is
found in considerable variety in
nearly every state along the At
lantic slope, the deposits of best
quality being in New York and
North Carolina. The New York
talc is used almost exclusively as a
filler in the manufacture of paper;
most of the North Carolina talc is
ground to a powder and used in the
manufacture of toilet powders. The
talc mined in Virginia is used for
the most part in the manufacture ol
wash tubs, laboratory zincs, stove
bricks, etc. Other states that have
produced talc or soapstone are
Maryland, Georgia and California.
A large part of the soapstone mined
in thes; latter states is ground and
is used as paint, paper filling, lubri
cants, etc. Baltimore Sun.

New Thing In Territory or Han all
The opening of our separate
department for Hawaiian Territory
for loans as well as investments has
occasioned so much inquiry as to
our methods of doingjbusiness, etc.,
we have concluded to give a .series
of articles for the benefit of the
general building and loan business,
as well as to comply with the re
quests of a number of our stock

interested. We are also selfish
enough to do this to increase our '
business. It is hoped that you will"
preserve these articles. They cocr

should be interesting to those who
