The weatherman protests. Alter
years ot telling tho truth about tho
future, ho fell down moBt sadly In
promising Mr. Tnft a pleasant day
for Inauguration, Tho result was that
bo was assailed throughout the coun

The Storm of March Fourth.
It Is not usual to answer crltlclsuu
of the forecasts of the Weather Uu
rcau, but tho hundreds of press clip
pings that havo been received silica
Match 4 containing adverse criticisms
of tho IJureau seem to call for this
statement from me.
l'orecusts of tho Weather Unread
are before tho public every day In the
year. In the past about one predic
tion out of each ten failed to be veri
fied, and It may be' expected that tho
vnme ratio of failure will be maintain
ed until meteorology can be made,
what It Is not now, an exact science.
In tho enso of tho storm thnt visited
Washington on the -4 til of March last,
the fact is that the disturbance be
gan here on the miming of tho 3rd,
and was accurately forecast tho day
before. The Bureau anticipated thnt
the storm center would pass over tho
Middle Atlantic States during' the
night of the 3rd, nnd that northwest
wind's and falling temperatures would
lcavo ii clear day for the 4th. The
center post precisely as forecast, the
wind shifted andtho temperature foil,
but Instead uf the northwest wind
clearing thu sky as It docs In nearly
all cases, precipitation In tho form of
Bnow occurred and continued for
twelve hours nfter tho storm confer
had past eastward. No forecaster
could foreseo this. Were wo to fore
cast n fall of Btiow following the pas
sage of storm centers that move from
the northwest, wc would have hun
dreds of failures charged against us.
Instead ()f an occasional one, for It Is
rare that snow falls In tho Mlddlo At
lantic States except with the approach
of a ktorni from tho southwest, which
causes noithwest winds, and It la ex
tremely rare that nny storm In this
teglon that begins with rain ends with
snow of nny considerable amount. On
tho contrary, ninny storms that begin
as snow end ns ruin, '
