IATE OBSEHYATIOXS IN SOUTH" AMERICA
Sax- Jose, Cal., Oct a The following
Is a communication from Prof. Barnard con
cerning the discovery of Jupiter's fifth
"Xy attention has been called to a tele
graphic dispatch going the rounds of the
press to the effect that Mr. Cartright, of
Detroit, has presented a claim for the fifth
tatellito of Japiter, backed up with affi
davits of d startling nature. I have already
in an article published Sept?mber25, shown
the Jolly of such claim,if forno other reason
than the fact that the satellite can only be
seen with the giant telescope of the world.
None of these claimants have ever been
heard of before in connection with any as
tronomical ork, good or b.ni or indiffer
ent. "I only notice this claim of Mr.Cart
right's because the statement is made in the
dispateh referred to that is as detestable as
it is contemptible and requires reply. Tue
dispatch says: 'It would seem apparent that
letters sent to observatories, at any rate,
that one sent to Lick observatory directly
inspired the discovtry ot the fitth satellite
by Prof. Barnard.' But as to the dispatch,
I would say that up to the present moment
any letter ever sent to Lici observatory by
Mr. Cartrieht has never been seen or even
been heard of by me, and I know nothing,
absolutely nothing, of the existence of aoy
such letter. 1 have no aoutu tnai every oo
servatory of any consequence in the world
has dozens of such letters in its flies with
claims about a mythical planet within a
couple of degrees of Uranus, and with a
satellite np near the north pole of the
heavens pointed out by a spirit on the star
"Veca, and the discovery ot double canals on
Mars with the naked eya TIlese ttt0 let"
ters actually exist.
Trot Young Adds His Testimony.
J'ln connection with my statement of the
difficulty ot seeing this satellite with even
a large telescope, I am sure Prof. Xoung
is so well known that everybody will par
don my quoting from a letter just received
from him in reference to the discovery"
His instrument at Princeton is the third
largest in America. It is a 23-inch Clark
telescope and is as perfect an instrument as
can be made. He writes: 'I tried my best
to see tne satellite but without success. I
suppose that the telescopes at Washington,
28-iuch, and Charlottesville, 25-inch, with
mine here, 23-inch, are the only ones in
this country which would have the least
chance of being abla to see the. object. I
take it for granted that in giving its magni
tude as the 13th rou mean" that it is of the
same apparent brightness as a 13th magni
tude star at that distance from the planet's
limb. If so it is a question whether I could
possibly see it I rather think I could, but
urn by no means confident that I could.'
"He writes for the positions ot the satel
lite and just where and when to look ior it.
I have not yet heard of the new satellite
being seen with any telescope in the world
except the Lick JG-inch. Suppose Mr.
Cartright and 31'. Cooley come to a definite
understanding between them which of the
two is to have the satellite, the fortunate
one then settling his difference with inc."
Sew Observations of Mars.
The just issued number of Astronomy, a
scientific magazine edited by Prof. W. V.
Payne, of Carleton College, contains sev
eral aluable papers on the recent observa
tions of the planet Mars. The first is by
Prof. Edward S. Holden, who under date of
August 18, explains the work done by the
big Lick telescope in California giving his
conclusions as follows:
"I may briefly state my individual con
clusions, as derived from a comparison of
my own observations of Mars at the oppo
sition of 187j and at all succeeding ones, to
be that the changes in the surface features of
Mars, as we now know them, are probably
not capable ot being completely explained by
terrestrial analogies.. What are we to make
of the lake called Fons Juveutre, for ex
ample, which was a single object in 1877,
which was not visible in 1879, and which
has been both single and double during the
present year? The dark areas on Mars may
be water and the red areas land; but how
are we to explain the faintly colored areas
like Hesperia or Deucalioms iJegio? Are
they waste shoals like the grand banks of
Newfoundland? Are they solid land or
are they water?"
"Is it conceivable that an observer on
Mars, examining the earth in any
part of its recent history, would have
seen any such amazins topographic changes
as we have this year observed, not to speak
of chauges from opposition to opposition?
It appears to me that a careful examination
of the long series ot drawings of Mars,
which we owe to Prof. Schiaparelli and to
others, up to the present time, will make it
evident that there are enormous difficulties
in the way ot completely explaining the
recorded phenomena by terrestrial analo
gies unless wc also introduce serious modi
fications." Prot Pickering's Researches.
Prof. "William II. Pickering, of Harvard
College, who has been obsering Mars in
South America, writes at length under date
of Arequipa, Peru, August 1, 1892. He
gives with great detail a report of his ob
servations, which showed many and rapid
chanzes on the planet, and in conclusion
"In seeking to explain these observations
I would merely point out the fact that the
changes occurred at a time when the snow
was melting with great rapidity.that a dark
channel suddenly appeared July 12, which
had not been seen at the last previous ob
servation of this region, June 13, that it
shortly disappeared again, and that a few
days after this event the Northern Sea
largelv increased in area temporarily, or at
least that its southern shores became much
"I think these changes cannot be ex
plained by arean cloud effects. We have
already observed large whitish patches
upon the planet, which undergo consider
nble change in shape and extent from night
to night. We are now studying them care
fully, although we find them rather difficult
of observation. These changes we are in
clined to refer to clouds, although the mat
ter is not so simple as it might at first ap
pear. If these effects are really due to
clouds, thev are quite different in character
from the other changes noted."
Other papers describing the observations
made in various parts of the world are also
published, but they have already been cov
ered m these dispatches.

Is always an event of unusual interest and importance. It has come to
be looked forward to as the introductory era of the arts and fashions of
the Millinery World. And justly so, for the proud exhibit invariably
consists of the latest and most advanced creations of the world's most
famous modistes. Paris, Berlin, London, Vienna, New York, and last,
but not least, our own workrooms, have vied with each other to be
represented by the handsomest and prettiest specimens of millinery at
our Formal Millinery Opening, commencing to-morrow and continuing
till Saturday. Our exhibition cases are now radiant with Hats, Toques
and Bonnets, in all the latest shades, such as Aloes; Murier, Eminence,
Oriental, Trianon, Escurial, etc., and everything is ready to make our
formal Fall Opening a grand success. In order to attain the best possi
ble result for you,, as well as us, we have set aside different days for

line of Ladies' and Misses' Hats, Toques and Bonnets ever

we shall make a display of Juvenile Millinery (for dress or
school) which in magnitude and magnificence will outrival
and outshine any previous attempt of the kind made in
Pattern Hats at Half Price.

our recent preliminary opening, and representing the choicest and
