Committee Submitted to Secretary
Gtge Scientific Attainment iind,i
Methods o Incumbents the Sub
ject Of GoMp'-lr. IluylftV Case
Ercretary Gnge has before htm a report
dealmi'Wlth the management, largely from
the Ft ientific point of view, of the Coast
and Geodetic Survey. It hah been known
I for some tune- that nuch a report was
in process or completion, and that fact
has kept the personnel o the survey busy
I to say the leastrwlth conjecture! as to
r hat is uolug to happen.- The impression
Is that It has been such a lorrg ttme
since the course of business in this de
partment has been, disturbed that it it,
time for what IS technically known aa a
shake-up". " T .
Mr- Cleveland shook up the institution
twelve or thirteen yeai ago, ami there
was 3ust a little seismic dit.turb.mce In
1804, when Assistants Ugdun, l)oniic
jtnd Waluvt right were relieved ot that
occupations. This todk place May -P,
1894.
Mr Carlisle reinstated Mr. Ogden uud
Mr. Wainwright, but Mr. Donne Is rod n
the outside although, it is said thai 1 is
removal v. - an outrageous piocccdiug and
that he MK'Uttl have -been reinstated.
The shake-ups under Cleveland had vyuJl
nlLrit ti en Jorgottdu .when. SupfcrintenJent
Duffiild, bv design or unwittingly, brought
Tbii another investigation. He dwr.il to
dismiss Assistant James B. Bavlor, of
Virginia. Mr. RyIoi , would Dot, however
be disposed or in ihnt way. He objected
to bcli.g shelved without just ciue and
an inquiry was instituted under Scrxeliry
Gage the committee being Assistant Sec
retary Vaffderlip. Major BracJretr-, niid
a buruiu chief.
It was understood that Mr Baylor'h
arciWitifiQ attainments were attacked n
that it was necessary to get an jv.pert
committee to investigate him This latter
committee is Prof Raymond, of the Poly
ternlc intliiter ot Troy, N. Y , and O.
-Cb.wue a civil engineer ot Chicago, The
report of this committee Is in, and its
report on this particular case and on the
i letlsod and management or the intitntron
Is beng awaited with interest at the
Coan and Geological Survey.
The committee will probably not reort
ngaliist Mr Bajlor. He is the bmtlifr .n-
j law of Thomas Nelson Page, and Is safd
f not hmlr in be well up in hisltn, tfat to
1 have the Influence of the Virginia i'elf
sat ton lK?'ilnd htm It la also said lhat
' can wnut on r-ecretary i.iger
Thft, however, is a minor matter', the
geneial change tcing the thing" to be
ffiarod. Tacnncles a"re not plentiful now
adays, and arc hcing made- bnt slowly.
Tl'e report as to changes goes so far a
f to intimate that even Ttfr. Duffield, the
Lurertmxndent, inay be rt-n.oved. Irf this
connection It may be Interesting to the
jwblie. and It will certainly to mathemati
cians and students, to Toad tbe following:
"Since coming into the survey several
year"3go Gen. "Duffield, the ouperfnr'endenr,
has cottlplfted-WGrkTrpon logarithms which
has occupied his spare time for a period
of more than- thirty years. Despite the
criticisms that have been made by a dis
chargpd employe of the survey npon both
the actcracy and the availability tif tlie
work, Serftary Gage has directed that it
be. made a part of theforthcomrngaurrn-il
report of the superintendent of the survey,
and it Is now in pre?. Gui. Duffield en
tered spdn The undertaking- when confined
to his room afterthfliattle of Murfreestom,
in which he was Wounded in the right
groin and the left thigh. The pain from
his injuria was so intene that he could
find retli'f only In uome form or mental
-application, and ho took np the prepara
tion or a seiies of logarithms.
"Interest In the work Rrew upon him
as it progressed, and he has made it
liis avocation out of business honrs in all
tnc years- since. The tables include log
gnrUhms Tor each second of every angle
up to two degrees; and for every ten
seconds from two degrees to ninety de
grees, and the logarithms of integral num
bers up to 100,000. These are earned out
to ten places, although the calculation was
made to twelve places, the tenth figure
being determined by tbe last two. In
addition to the tables themselves, the
general has prepared an accompanying
statement, or explanation, of the theory
and use of logarithms, and the entire
work comprises 230 printed pages.
"There has been no computation of this
tort made since the tables of Von Vega,
the German mathematician, which was
puollshed in 1704 In comparing his work
with that of the German, Gen. Duffield has
found moie than 120 errors in "his prc
decespor'a computations, and Mr. Scbott,
chief computer of the survey, who hatf
been at woTk upon the calculations con
nected with the transcontinental arc, tlie
trlanguiatien of which was completed by
the survey !at year, after more than fifty
years -jf ritTul labor upon it, has fouud
sixty-odd himself, In addition to those dls
covered by Gen. Duffield, some of them
as high up ah the third figure la the
decimal.'"

Pnbllo Improvements.
William Fbrsyth, surveyor of the Dis
trict "With the inception ot a small in
terim for nearly half a century, yesterday
tendered hla resignation to tlie Commis
iioners. It was accepted, but only on ac
count of the physical infirmities which
render it desirable that he should retire
from the active and arduous duties of the
Henry B. Lookei, who was assistant
surveyor, was appointed surveyor, and
Charles P. Calvert, draughtsman and com
puter, was made assistant surveyor to fill
tbe place left vacant by the promotion of
Mr. Looker. The salary ot the office of
surveyor Is $3,D6ff per annum.
The resignation of Mr. Forsyth withdraws
from the Government service a mau who
has sepu "Washington grow from a mere
hamlet to the beautiful city which It now
it, and one vvho has doue no little to
assist tho growth.
All tho extended Improvements aud
changes in the city's topography which
Were made under tlie regime ot Gov.
Shepherd, and which have resulted in the
great growth and beauty of Washington,
were made i n accordance with plans drawn
by Mr. Torsyth, and under his personal di
rection. Mr. Foryth is now seenty-fceven jears
of age, but lie is still in the possession
of all his facuItieK, and up to a few
months ago participated in all the fati
gulngoutdoorworkor the surveyor's office.
He roads without glasses and has a mar
velous memory, being able to recall with
exactitude dates and incidents far back
in his txiyliood's days. He Was at one
time emplovert in assisting George Steven
son, the inventor or the Steam engiue.
in laying out railroads, and has many
plcnsnni memories of that famous man.
His mind is a storehouse of remembracea
of the early days of this city, and there
IS hardly u comer in it which he has
not planned, and of which he has uoC
some anecdote to tell.
Mr. Forsyth was bora AUgust 9. 1820,
in Keltcs, situated in the Western part of
Mcath county, Ireland,. afcoutrtwenty milus
from Dublin. II o waa educated In tho
public schools and then studied surveying-
He-soon showed remarkableerritiency
and when still scarcely more than a boy
was chosen by George Steven-ion to go
with him to Belgium to layout lailroada.
There- they ran lines from Bruges to Brus
sels and between other plates In tlie
year 1845 Mr. Forsyth made survevs cf
ithe- clt of Brighton and laid out many
of the most beautiful parks- In London.
Eleycii years of his life wertf spent In
the employ ot Great Britain, making sltr
"veys bt the three-kingdoms.
In June, 1850, he came to this coun
try, landing in New York", and settled
in Washington in the November follow
ing. Enrlv In 1851 he went into the
orfice of the commissioner of public bulld
'ings and grounds, B. B FrenCh, and later
M as appointed deputy surveyor of the
county of Washington. In 1857 he was
rnado. surveyor of the city ot Washington
by popular election. With the exception
of four year, from 1867 to 1S71, he has
held this office ever since.
In 1870, by special act of Congress,
he was appointed to establish-new grades
for the city. During the same jear, un
der bis supervision, all-wood pavements
were laid on Pennsylvania and Louisiana
avenues.
lie was again appointed to the office
of surveyor of Washington by Gov. H. D.
Cooke, in 1S71. He established all grades
for city improvements up to 1877, and
levied alt special taxes assessed during
Gov, Shepherd's administration.
He had charge ot all work and located
all reservations along the line ot Pennsyh
vanla avenue from Seventeenth street, to
Rock Creek Ho laid out Washington Circle
In 1851. and during the same jear, under
lils direction, the grounds, around tho Capi
tol took practically the form in which
they now stand In this year, also, he
made extensive changes in the reservation
back of the Executive Mansion, including
the planning of the largo oval, which still.
exisU. By special acb of Congress, which
thretted the establishment ot new grades
around the Capitol, the Baltimore and
Ohio rails were sunk seven or eight feet, In
accordance with plans drawn by him
He made all the surveys for the arsenal
as now laid out In 1851 or 1852 he
dredged the canal which formerly ran
through the arsenal and built the sea wall
Mr. Forsjth lias retained active charge
of all the work Inside and outside of his
office np to about three months ago, but
at that time he found that the strain of the
outside work proved too great for his fall
ing strength. He still, however, directs nil
tlie work done Inside the office.
When seen at his home, No. Ii2l Ninth
street northwest, hq asked to be excused
from saving anything with regard to hla
resignation, as he had a bad cold.
Henry B. Looker,- who succeeds Mr.
Forsyth, was appointed assistant sur
-veyor in March, 1895. He is the son of
Paymaster Looker, U. S. A.
Mr. Calvert, who becomes assistant sur
veyor, ha been in the service eight years.
