The change of front of the l.eglsla

prlatlon policy reminds the people ot
the "circular storm" that Weatherman
Lyons furnished some months ago. The
fair weather of one day gave promlsu
only ot a storm from u new dlicctlou
The Appioprlatlon bill discussion
thould be marked by business methods
not political. The people have reached
the point whero they don't care what
party docs It, to a majority of mem

basis that will secure expeditious re
sults for Territorial progrcts.
The Shamrock It seems highly sun

This Is Just what tho first Shamrock

merit In the sailors' hoodoo, the latest

further evidence of tho bad example

HEAT FR0MJHE STARS
Chicago, May 11. A special to tha
Itecord-Herald from Williams jllay,
Whether the stars, millions of mlled
away, send to the earth's surface any
heat along with their rays of light, a
question which has long puzzled as
tronomers, has been Anally solved.
The heat from these far-off bodies has
not only been detected but measured.
It has been measured by one of the
most delicate and sensitive astronomi
cal Instruments ever made an In
strument capable of measuring the heat
of a candle a mile away.
The credit for solving the problem
and for constructing this dellcnto In
strument belongs to Prof. E. I Nich
ols, of Dartmouth College. The experi
ments wcic, however, performed r.t tho
Yerkcs Observatory of the 1'nlverslty
of Chicago, where Professor Nichols
spent two of his summer tncntlons.
The results obtained frcm theso experi
ments havo Just been carefully review
ed and computed nnd sent to Prof. Geo.
E. Hale, director of the observatory
Prof. Nichols' experiments at the
YerKes Observatory have for tho first
time proved beyond doubt that tho
Planets and some of the fixed stars send
an nppreclabln quantity of heat to the
earth. Tho quantity, howecr. Is so
minute that the wonder Is that an In
strument could be made sensitive
enough to detect It.
Tho' Instrument which can record
such nn Infinitely small amount of heal
Is called a indlometer. Though based
to somo extent upon the same principle
as the bolometer and rrdlomlcromctcr,
which have been so mcceisfiilly Jiscd
In measuring heat rays. In construc
tion It Is essentially different nnd foi
this purpose has proved far more ef
fective. The bearing of these (list measure
ments of stellar htat. pry Prof. Hale.
upon the life history cl stars, is very
important, but general conclusions can.
not be drawn until further results can
be obtained. Prof. Nichols ren.urks
that the great reflecting telescore. with
silvered glass mirror five feet In di
ameter, which Is being constructed nt
the Ycrkes Observatory, will be bcttei
adapted than any other instrument fot
U1I.3 delicate work. The glass lenses of
ft refracting telescope are quite opaque
to some of tho heat wncs whlrh reach
us from the stnrs nnd for this reason
a reflecting telescope of the largest slza
must be used In future cxicrlnieuts.
Prof. Nichols was nssistcd In this
valuable work by Prof. Charles IC. St.
John of Oberlln College and A. I. Col
ton, formerly ntslstnnt at the Lick Oh
Let us hope that the Governor will be
good enough to give for publication
whatever communications ho may re
ceive hearing on the Secretary's differ
ences with the Legislature. Tho Gov
ernor's custom heretofoie has almost
luvnrlably been to gue outr ullnss
fuorab!e to his own opinions nnd care
fully guard those Hint fall to uphold
the position taken by him. This al
ways lays the Governor open to the
charge of playing politics. Thero la
no sin In being -overruled by a Federal
olllclnl, and tho people aro certainly
Interested In tho position taken bj
Tcderal departments on all matters re
lating to tho Territory.
A NARROW ESCAPE.
Walter Ackerman, one of tho Oahu
Collegn students, came very near los
Ing his life yesterday afternoon. He
and n boy named Myers, were sitting
on a rail at the edge of a second story
In mi I which encircles Old School Hall,
when tho rail gave way. Myers caught
hold cif a near by post, nnd saved him
self, but Ackerman wns thrown to the
ground striking nn his head nnd right
shoulder. Ono of the carpal bones In
tho right wrist wrcs broken quite bad
ly. Dr. Mooro was called, nnd for
more than an hour, concussion of the
brain wns Imminent. Ackerman Is now
resting easily and Is out of danger.
MONBY l-OR AGRICULTURE.
Tho proposal bus been made by some
legislators thnt the local appropriation
for tho Hoard of Agriculture to the
nmount of $51)00 be placed at tho dls
posal of Jared Smith, director of the
Federal Kxpcrlment Station, do nway
with many expenses of tho former
P-onid of Agriculture and uso the
money thus saved for tho establish
mem of a statistical bureau. It Is to be
hoped this suggestion will ho brought
out In the legislative transactions and
acted upon favorably.
To carry out this plan will servo the
double purpose of accomplishing prac
tical results for agriculturists of Ha
waii and setting nt rest n mlsapprehcn
slou regarding the purposes and Intent
of Hawaiian legislators thnt now exists
In tho Department nt Washington.
Since the opening of the Legislature
coi respondent e has been tarried on
with the Agrlcultuial Pcpaitmeut with
n view to determining the possibility of
Hawaii obtaining a poitlon of tho Mor
1 111 fund set mart by Cnngiesa for col
leges of agriculture and mechanic arts
Thero Institutions formed tho nucleus
for tho splendid state jinlersltie now
found In every State In the Union, and
It Is hoped tho day may not bo far dis
tant when Hawaii may lay the foun
dation for what will somo day become
the University of Hnwall.
Tho correspondence carried on by tho
Bulletin developed tho fact that the
department has somo fear that such
fund might not be propeily expended
In Hawaii whero politics have taken cm
n somewhat bitter phase. Tho fnlso
Impression appears to pievall that Hawaiian-Americans
are not enthusiastic
on educational matters. ,
If Hawaii's Legislature demons! rates
- Its readiness to awlst the Federal de
pertinent In experiment station work
as does nearly overy State this act
would lie the most posltlvo and con
vincing refutation that could bo of
feied, It would establish confidence In
the good Intentions of tho people that
should bear good fruit two years hence
when It ought to bo possible to secure
sin h legislation as will assure tho es
tablishment of a college of Agriculture
and Mechanic Aits under the Morrill
From the standpoint of Immediate
and practical results. Hawaii can place
Its funds for agricultural work In no
better hands thnn the Federal rep
resentative, Jared Smith. Mr. Smith Is
n trained man In his profession and en
thusiastic In his work. There will be
