The Scientist Gives a Theory of Earth
quakes and What Causes Them.
Ottawa, Out., Sept. 0. Prof. E. Stone
Wiggins submitted a documentary and
other proofs to Minister Marine showing
he predicted as far back as March last year
the eurthquakes prevailing south. He also
announced in Ottawa Journal, May 13 last,
the approach of subterranean disturbances
in the same locality. The professor de
clared the worst is not yet reached and
claims the greatest strain" will be between
this period'and the middle of October.
The southern states will again be visited
by earthquakes and the disturbances will
extend to California and South America.
When asked his reasons for the predic
tion Prof. Wiggins said: Earthquakes are
caused by the shifting of the earth's center
of gravity. Suppose this center be moved
say one mile from the normal
center of gravity, or from cen
ter volume; now, what must happen?
Why, parts of the surface at the end of
the longer axis will be lighter than nor
mally; these disks, therefore, will grind
upon each other, generating heat and lava.
Hence earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.
If our little visible satellites were brought
down and slid around the earth from east
to west in twenty-four hours earthquakes
would occur of such violence as to render
the earth uninhabitable.
Prof. Wiggins claims that these forces
were in action at the end of August. Both
of the earth's satellites, two of which he
says exist, were then in perigee. Jupiter
was also near his inferior conjunction,
which in a limited degree increased the
The Daily Quakes Now Regarded as
Good Bather Than Evil Omens.
Charleston, Sept. 1). The city is quiet
today, though the dream of absolute immu
nity from danger was rudely dispelled by
a smart but innocuous shock of an earth
quake between 1 and 2 this morning.
Shelter has been pretty well provided for
all the homeless, but the expected rains
will cause much suffering. Rations are be
ing issued to all persons who are recom
mended by any reputable citizen known to
the relief committee. Charleston will also
furnish rations in the same way to destitute
persons at Sunimerville and Mt. Pleasont.
There are rumors that the negroes will
flock here in the hope of living in idleness
and that cotton ik-lds and truck farms will
be deserted, but this L net likely to last if it
begins, as rrcat pains are taken to prevent
loafers from taking advantage of the dis
tribution of food b- the relief committee.

New York, Sept. 9. Mayor Courtney,
of Charleston, telesraplis Dr, Andrew
Simonds. president oT the First National
bank of Charleston, (who is now in this
city) that in order to shelter the homeless
people before the cold weather sets in from
300,000 to $1,000,000 are immediately re

damage to property by the earthquake at
from fire to six million dollars. The pro
duce exchange Charleston fund amounts to
$7,S16; stock exchange fund $12,$00, and
the cotton exchange to $0,492. The fund
at Boston amounts to $22,000; Buffalo $4,

cision, THE CAPTIVE ArACHES.
Gen. Drum, acting secretary of war.lruv
ing been authorized by the president to use
his discretion in the treatment of the cap
tured Apaches, has instructed Gen. Miles
to remove Geronimo and band to a secure
place of confinement, and while it is not
yet known at the department whither they
ha e been taken, it is surmised that they
have beeii removed to Fort Bliss, Texas, or
some neighboring post. It was, not deemed
prudent to allow the Indians 'to remain at
Ft. Bowie, as in the event of an escape to
the mountains, it would be almost impossi
ble to recapture them. Despite the report
made m the official telegram that Geroni
mo's surrender was unconditional, the be
lief is growing at thewar department
based on the chief's well-earned reputation
as a strategist, that he hud' made some con
ditions with his captors 'that will at least
prevent his trial in Arizona. In the ab
sence of a moie definite understanding on
the subject at head quarters, it is tolerably
possible that the Indiaas -will be held at
some Texas fort as prisoners of war until
President Cleveland returns and expresses
his wishes in the matter. It is believed by
officers competent to jedf j that a eivil trial
of the captives would be a failure as no
evidence of legal evidences could be adduced
to bring the murders that have been com
mitted home to any of these Indians and
little better results'wouk' attend a trial by
a military commission.
For the same rcison and it is felt that the
only feasible solution! the question of the
treatment of Geronimdand his band would
be their removal to a reservation (probably
in Florida) where from the surroundings,
escape would be impossible.
Mr. Atkins, the committee of Indian af
fairs, is quoted by the Post as insisting that
Geronimo must be put to death. The pres
ident, he said will probably acquiesce in
whatever proposition Gen. Miles makes for
disponing of the murderer. Ifis proposi
tion will doubtless be a court martial,
which will not fail to award a death sen
tence. There is no doubt that the public
sentiment of the country demands the
death of Geronimo.

Sir: A week ago I went to a ball and
stayed but a short time; went home and to
bed early. Next morning-my friend, Mr.
Gunand came to mcandfoaud me dressing.
We went out together. All the officers and
members of thejockey club, who were the
principal people there, signed the letter ex
onerating me from any improper behavior
atanvtime during the ball. Gentlemen
who saw me return, from the ball
hare signed the card staling they obrserved
nothing except I v.ent toward" my room.
I have Gunand's statement in writing to
his calling in the morning, besides the
stateinenfof the hotel manager. No scene
or row of any kind took place in the hall
and also I went to my room after the ball.
No eye witness has ever been produced and
I only know from hearsay what stories are
circulated in the United States. Secretary
Bayard has telegraphed me my personaLde

The Emporia University.
Emporia, Kan., Sept 9. The board of
regents of the state normal school met this
morning at the office of President A. R,
Taylor. There were present the president
and the full board, viz: W. "W. Rice, Fort
Scott; John H. Franklin, Russell; Henry
D. Dickson, Neosho Falls; Milton Stew
art, Wichita; W. EL Caldwell, Beloit: Ed.
gar W. Warner. Kerwin.
The committee of the board appointed to
sell the Salt Spring' land, located in Saline,
Republic Lincoln, Mitchell and Cloud coun
ties having completed their work and made
their report which has been approved
by the governor and full board respectively.
The report shows that all of the twelve
sections of land, or 2,640 acres, was sold,
except 200 acres, for the sum of $73,SS2;
or $10.50 per acre. The appraised value
of the lands sold was $75,520, the sale
being an increase of $3,362 over these
figures. Six hundred and forty acres was
appraised at fifty cents per "acre, being
almost wholly worthless, which fact makes
the average a good figure. The two hun
dred acres which remain unsold is located
in Saline and Republic counties and will
hare to be re-appraised under the law.
This is undoubtedly the best sale of pub
lic lands ever made in the state. The sale
was made by the board of regents through
a committee of its members consisting of
W. H. Caldwell, J. Franklin and E. V
Warner, the state thus saying the payment
of a commission on the sale, which would
have amounted to about $2,500.
Theopenimr of the school shows a
larger attendance than ever. There are
fourteen counties represented by students
that were not represented last year. The
entrance class numbers 140. The class of
students in attendance indicates the growth
of the state in wealth and culture, and the
classes are all organized and at work.
One of a Million.
St. Louis, Sept. 9. During the past
two months repeated attempts have been
made to burn down the national stock
;ards in East St. Louis, and two of the
fires started by the incendiaries caused con
siderable damage to the pen and sheds, but
were extinguished before the flames had
communicated to any of the large packing
nouses. The perpetrators of these outrages
remained unknown until last Tuesday
night, when Joe Carey, the night watch
man at AVhittaker's packing house, discov
ered several boys attempting to set the
house on fire.
The incendiaries lied at his approach,
but he pursued and caught one of them,
who proved to be his own son, John, 14
years of age. Yesterday the father took
his boy to the president and made him
confess. The boy acknowledged that he
and two boys named John Reed and Alfred
Hopkins had kindled the fires of June 7
and August 5 and G, one of'which resulted
in a loss of 0,000. The boys say they
made their .attempts to burn" down the
vards because thev were refused work.
