SEVENTH AND CONCLUDING PAPER.
In the six preceding papers I have tried
to give as clear an idea of the principle of |
kinetic stability, and its action in the case i
of gravity, as the columns of a popular |
newspaper would permit. I have shown
now kinetic energy produces kinetic stabil- j
ity in thecase of the bicycle, and how the j
beautiful sinuous curves of elastic motion
are produced by the same principle, in the !
case of water issuing umler pressure from j
a garden-hose nozzle. By merely vibrating .
or shaking the nozzle five or six times j
in a second you can get quite a number of
vibrations, in which you have a visible
proof that the attraction of gravity has
nothing to do with the production of
We have a similar illustration in the
smoke rings, although mathematical an
alysis has tried to prove that the
stability is due to components of gravity
and buoyancy, but the proof is more con- I
vincing when the factor of kinetic stability I
is introduced. lam sure whenever the
experiments I have given in my pamphlet '
on "Elasticity a Mode of Motion" are ,
verified by the scientists at the California I
University they will rind the truth of this j
gr«;at natural principle.
Before closing the series I would like to I
say a few words to the mathematicians who '
take an interest in this subject. In my !
pamphlet I havo given the geometrically j
kinetic proof tha* : Every body which has j
kinetic energy has also kinetic stability, i
and that its kinetic stability acts as a;
latent energy, at right angles, and always ■
equal to the kinetic energy. You are I
aware, of course, that it is quite impossible
for me to introduce the calculus into a
newspaper article so as to give the analyti- i
cal proof necessary to establish a scientific
principle, and so bring it under the con
trol nf mathematical analysis. However, i
by means of words and a few symboli
cal equations I think I can make
my meaning sufficiently clear to put you
on the right way to study the subfect; so
that those who can use the calculus with the
same ea.4 and confidence that a wood
turner can use his lathe will be enabled to
produce some wonderful results from the I
artistic manipulation of this greatest of all j
the natural principles.
Those of you who are familiar with the i
works of Laroe\ Clark Maxwell, Stokes, \
Kelvin and Tait will know how assid
uously those great mathematicians |
searched for this hidden principle; how j
Green in his search for the potential, and I
Fourier in his trreat harmonic function,
Gauss in his least action and Hamilton j
in his stationary and varying action ;
and characteristic function, spent
their lives in developing the great
harmonic analysis, with the fervent hope i
in their breast that the great potential
principle of nature would by that means
be discovered to be a mode of motion.
Those of you who are not so familiar with
the glorious and controlling faith which
spurred those great philosophers on to hieh
and mighty endeavor should read Sir |
William Thomson's lecture on the "Elas- I
ticityof Motion." (See volume I of his j
Popular Lectures in the libraries.)
Many people think that this principle j
I havediscovered and am trying to explain
to the readers of The Call is something !
which, even if true, is of little practical
value; but they will yet find that its in
trinsic worth does not depend on their
opinion. Had I been a scientific author- j
it V. like Kelvin or Le Conte, and had ail j
the facilities of a university laboratory at
my command to verify the principle by
experiment in a vacuum, the leading \
publishers of the world would have
been tumbling over each other to
secure the right to publish tne discovery,
and the copyright of these seven papers
would have yielded their author thousands
Let me quote the words of one of the
greatest mathematicians of this age, who
is also a great natural philosopher.
In the Enclycopsedia Britannica, ninth
edition, volume 15, page 748, section 297, in
that splendid article on "Mechanics,"
Professor P. G. Tait of Edinburgh, in
discussing the characteristics of energy,
•'But there is one point of importance
connected with energy, of surpassing in
portance in mechanical science, viz.: That
when two measurable quantities of any
kind are equivalent to the other, their
numerical expressions must involve the
i-ame fundamental units and in the same
manner. This is obvious from the fact
that an alteration of any unit alters
in the inverse ratio the numerical
measure of any quantity which is
a mere multiple of it. And equivalent
quantities must always be expressed by
equal numbers when both are measured in
terms of the same system of units. It
appears, therefore, from the conservation
of energy directly, as well as from the spe
cial data already given, that potential en
ergy must, like kinetic energy, be of di
mensions [3/I*7— 2 ]. Now, itis impossible |
to conceive of a truly dormant form i
of energy whose magnitude should depend i
in any way on the unit of time; and we
are therefore forced to the conclusion that
potential energy, like kinetic energy, de- |
pends (in some as yet unexplained or
rather unimagined way) upon motion.
And the conclusion which appears inevita
ble iB that whatever matter may be the
other reality in the physical universe, en
ergy, depends in all its widely varied
forms upon matter in motion."
Now the principle of kinetic stability
explains all the difficulty and goes one
step further and proves that matter itself
is a form of energy. In the line of har
monic analysis both Kelvin, Fourier and ]
Tait have shown how simple harmonic i
motion and vibrations of an elastic \
string, such as the sinuous curves i
we saw in the vibration of tbe water par- j
tides issuing from a small nozzle, can by
superposition be transformed into elliptical
motion similar to that of the planets
around the sun, and strictly observing the
law of tbe inverse square of the distance;
when the time of the periodic motion was as
the sesquiplicate ratio of half the majoraxis.
So that what is left for me to do is 6imply
to explain mathematically how the super
position of two transverse energies will
produce elastic motion and potential en
ergy When once you know that then you
can", by the intelligent application of La
Grange's system of generalized co-ordi
nates, or by the polar mett.od and Fou
rier's function and the calculus, workout a
multitude oi surprising results.
According to my definition kinetic
stability is that latent energy exhibited by
a conservative system, in virtue of which
the whole energy of the system may be in
creased by any finite amount without
desi roying'the stability of the system.
According to the present theory of at
traction as the cause of stability, there
was always a fear that the stability of the
solar system wa- liable to be destroyed by
some outside influence. Some philoso
phers went so far as to prove that the
equilibrium of the system was so perfect
that if meteorites did not belong to the
system their accession to the system
would long ere this have destroyed its
stability. But now we have nothing to
The simplest case to consider is that of
a particle moving in a straight line, hav
ing translation without rotation. Of
course if it Lad rotation, together with
translation, like the bicycle, or tbe solar
system, it would have that much more
kinetic energy, and a corresponding extra
amount of kinetic stability; but we will
deal with the simpler case, because some of
my correspondents think rotation is really
necessary to stability, but such is not the
case. Of course, on the earth's surface,
where we cannot have free motion, we
require greater kiuetic energy to neutral
ize the resistances, and we can only get
great velocity in a manner we can experi
ment with by the use of rotation.
The law Is— as I have proved in my
pamphlet — that kinetic energy and kinetic
stability are equal to each other, and it
does not matter how the kinetic energy be
produced, whether by translation or rota
tion. The resultant" kinetic energy will
always have its equal resultant kinetic
Let us take, then, the case of a particle
which has translation only, and that
straight line of motion must be supposed
to take place in a vacuum where there
is no gravity. That is what we call free
It is an unusual condition, but to the
mathematician it is the most simple of all
conditions to imagine.
Let ?n=Mass of particle.
Then T)u; s =jG=Energy or vis viva.
Then 7 -^!-=£ k =Kinetic energy.
Then mr^i'k -!-.£%=■= J?=Noniinal energy.
Let E v — Potential energy.
Now we find that the potential energy
and the kinetic stability vary inversely
between certain limits according to a cer
tain law, so that when the kinetic stability
is a maximum and equal to -^— then the
potential energy is equal to 0.
By the laws of the conservation of en
ergy we know that the particle cannot lose
its energy in any way without doing work,
nor can it increase its energy without hav
ing work done on it. Let us suppose that
the kinetic energy of another particle,
equal to £k, be superimposed on the first
i moving particle, in a line at right angles,
! or transverse to its motion; then the par
| tide would have twice the energy.
mow, if the particle had twice the en
ergy (such as would be the case in the ex
periment described in paces 55 and 56 of
! my pamphlet), then what reasons have we
J to "expect that the resultant motion would
Ibe curvilinear or elastic? The answer is:
because a curvilinear resultant solves the
problem of dastic motion.
At present mathematical science denies
that the resultant of the two transverse
j energies would be curvilinear.
The proof, or the accented proof, that the
i resultant velocity would be represented in
| direction and magnitude by the diagonal
! of the parallelogram, of which the adja
| cent sides represent the composite ener
i gies, is well known and can be found in
| any textbook on dynamics. But this is
just the point where the illusion comes in,
and it shows how easy it is for the wisest
; men to be mistaken and how the greatest
j scientist may err.
The accepted proof looks very simple
! and clear. The superposition of an equal
[ additional energy in any direc ' in (because
energy is irrespective of direction), gives
j twice the energy; and as the energy varies
as tbe square of the velocity, the resultant
! velocity would be equal to
And it just happens that in the case in
question the diagonal is just equal to
square root two= v / '2> Consequently no
one thought it could be otherwise, and I
never dreamed of it until I found by ex
periment that the resultant was curvilinear,
and then the whole truth flashed apon
me. Now tne fact is that the resultant
kinetic energy is not 22? k , but and
2E* — \/~i>Ek=Ep—Potentia.l energy.
If you will expand the velocities due to
these energies and note that the velocity
due to the potential acts at right angle's
to the velocity due to the kinetic energy,
and that the difference between the
forces producing the kinetic stability and
the potential energy is the measure of the
force of restitution, and that in small dis
turbances that varies as the distance from a
fixed plane, then by using suitable co-ordi
nates you can get the equation, of the
curve of sines.
And by considering how the combined
translation and rotation of the solar sys
tem superimposes these elastic curves
under varying phases, you can then by
your calculus solve the whole problem of
Now you know how kinetic stability en
ables kinetic energy to produce worlds and
systems of worlds, and how the motion of
atoms round a center produces a molecule;
because the solar system is, so to speak, a
molecule magnified a few billion of billions
of times and may be said to be only one of
the infinite number of cerebral cells in the
brain of the Infinite One, who by his in
telligence and his will has evolved them
all by the spirit of his power, from his
own consciousness, as phenomena which
I he has given his creatures senses to per
It is unnecessary for me to dwell longer
on the Smithsonian conditions, because
those of you who can handle the calculus
can easily see that kinetic stability fills the
whole bifl and does away with the attrac
tion of matter entirely.
You will also perceive by tne use of
the proper data how magnetic and
electric induction is produced ; how heat
and light, and life itself, can be produced
and transformed from the one into
the other by intelligent direction.
But there is one thing you will never learn
how or be able to produce, viz.: an in
finitesimal portion of energy more than
at present exists in the universe.
In conclusion, I beg to thank the editor
of The Call for allowing me the privi
lege of enlisting the assistance of
the press to bring sufficient pressure
on the State University, so as if possible
induce them to take this discovery up,
verify it by experiment and publish the
results to the world.
I have been constrained in these papers
to restrict myself to the mechanical action
of kinetic stability, but if the readers of
The Call will assist me to get the univer
sity authorities to verify the experiments I
in a vacuum, I have sketched out in my j
pamphlet; I will, with the permission of j
the editor, at some future time, continue !
the subject into the regions of organic
and spiritual science.

BATTLE-SHIPS FOR JAPAN,
Hakaru Isono Says That His Govern
ment Looks With Favor on
Hakaru Isono, ostensibly a merchant of
Yokohama, Japan, is stopping in this City
on his way to England and the Continent
via New York City. It is the purpose of
Mr. 1.-ono to visit the Union Iron Works
to thoroughly acquaint himself with their
capacity, manner of working and every
thing connected with the construction of
large battle-ships. Incidentally he states
himself as willing to confer with Ameri
can merchants regarding the development
of American and Japanese commerce. In
a talk yesterday he said:
I desire to have it distinctly understood that
I am here in no official capacity. I come here
simply irom my intense patriotism for my
native land. I can say positively that the
Japanese Government is very favorably in
clined toward the United States and its people.
It may be supposed by American shipbuilders
that Japan is more disposed toward British
builders, but this Is not the case. Japan
knows that the United States Government's
test of materials used in its ships is very severe,
and if Japan thought she would be accorded
the same excellence at the hands of your ship
builders she perhaps would make a choice of
this country, even thoujrn American prices
might be slightly in advance to those of other
nations. It is known almost definitely that
Japan intends having two large warships
constructed in this country.
Concerning the commercial relations be
tween the two countries, Japan is fully cog
nizant of the fact that the balence of trade is
against the United States. But if this country
could prepare articles of trade that would be
accessible to Japanese use, Japan would be as
large a buyer as the United States. At present
there is not enough pains taken by American
merchants in the preparation of products for

milk, but she frequently gets an adulterated

was remarkably domestic in her habits
and unusually circumspect in her inter

to take lunch with two gentlemen and a

was urged to drink a little wine. She ob

sips, and on those few sips hang's the tale.

NOW IS THE TIME TO TAKE TREATMENT,
The $5 a Month Rate Remains the Only Charge, In-
cluding Necessary Medicines.
Be Treated Now Before the Wet Winter Weather Makes a Cure More
Difficult— The New Treatment Is a Pronounced Success.
Drs. Copeland, Neal and Winn feel very grate-
ful to the public for the confidence with
wbich it accepts and responds to their printed
utterances. Their many years' experience in
treating all forms of catarrhal and kindred
chronic diseases entitles them to speak au-
thoritatively on the subject, and it is Darticu-
larly pleasing to feel that the public appre-
ciates and acknowledges this fact.
Drs Copeland, Neal and Winn desire to call
attention to the fact that as winter approaches
now is undoubtedly the time to treat catarrh.
Now we have nature to assist us in the treat-
ment instead of retarding it. A month's treHt-

off the colds vbiob make life miserab c for the
catarrhal sufferer in the winter. Piac; 1 your-

THE N'KW TREATMENT.
A cordial invitation is extended by Drs.
Copeland, Neal and Winn to all their friends
and patients, old as well as new, to call and
test the new treatment. It has passed the stage
of experiment and has been demonstrated a
complete success, particularly in those cases
which have withstood the other tind older
methods of treatment. They have added
to their already complete offices the new appli-
ances, and are ready to treat all those more
stubborn cases which in the past have been
thought incurable. It is to their financial in-
terest, as well as their medical fame, to cure,
!or one cured patient is worth many dollars of
advertising. They have tin best treatment and
the new and direct means of using it.
WHAT IS CATARRH.
Drs. Copeland, Neul and Winn arc frequently
asked: "Wnat is catarrh?" and "How can a
person tell when he has the disease? " Briefly,
catarrh in this climate is chiefly the result of
neglected colds or a succession of colds, Begin-

still looking for Meadrick, and the unwill
ing wife was at home with her adopted
parents. Seven days ago she disappeared
for the second time and the most diligent
search has failed to bring to light any
trace of her. She knew the man less than
an hour, and was with him only fifteen
minutes before she regained her normal
condition and left him.
Her family was so distracted when seen
yesterday that they could give no informa
tion beyond that already recited. They
had no idea where their daughter could be
and adhered strongly to the belief that her
husband had gained possession of her in
some way and was keeping her in hiding.
TO DRAIN THE MAESH.
Southern Pacific to Have a Three-Inch
Main L,aid to Carry off the Stag
. nant Water.
The Southern Pacific Railroad Company
has finally decided to - drain the Mission
Bay marsh about which so many com
plaints have recently been made by resi
dents of the Potrero to Health Officer Love
Since Dr. Emmett L. Wemple made his
complaint to the Health Officer of the
prevalence of malaria and typhoid fever
due to the gases arising from the marsh
Inspector A. E. Kinne has been at work
endeavoring to persuade the railroad com
pany to do something in the direction of
He was assured by John fl. Wallace, an
assistant engineer in the maintenance of
way department of the company, yesterday
that a three-inch main would soon be laid
just beyond the channel at the first ware
house to carry off the stagnant water.
A man would be stationed there also,
said Mr. Wallace, to see that the full bene
fit of the ebb and flow of the tide was re
ceived by the marsh, so as to let in the
salt water from the bay whenever possible,
and in that manner serve to flush the
marsh. . .-iV*r;'"* ' .
The work will be commenced in a few
days. The area covered by the marsh at
present is bounded by Channel. Kentucky,
Eighth and Santa Clara streets. A year
ago a vigorous effort was made by Potrero
property-owners to have the City declare
it a nuisance. The Board of Health then
had under consideration a plan for its fill
ing in by having sand pumped into it.
This would have cost about $300,000.

An Accidental Drowning.
The remains of Thomas Clancy, a carpenter,
were recovered' from the bay late yesterday
afternoon. He was about 50 years of age and
lived at 525 Howard street. . Late Friday night
he was seen around his residence and com
plained of insomnia. About 1 a. m. he was seen
near Mission-street wharf and must have
walked off the pier into the bay. He was very
near-sighted, being almost blind in one eye.
The Rev. Father Clancy was his cousiu.
The tongue is usually badly coated.
The breath is often foul.
There is pain and stiffness in back of neck.
Extending down the esophageal mucous
membrane, the stomach, and later the bowels,
The appetite is abnormal; it may be lost, in-
There is a weight, dull pain and a sense of
burning in the pit of the stomach after taking
This is accompanied by flatulence aud heart-
Alternate constipation or diarrhea.
A dull headache, languor, depression of spir-
its and irntablity of temper.
A biiter taste in the month.
The tongue is coated and breath foul.
Pain at the heart, accompanied by palpita-
tion ami shortness of breath, making the pa-
tient think he has heart disease.
Auain, there is a sh rt, dry cough and occa-
sional paroxysms of an asthmatic character.
The skin becomes sallow, dry and rough and
various eruptions appear.
So it is seen that catarrh causes a lonp train
of symptoms but little understood and appre-
ciated by the average physician, because he
comes in contact with so few patients. From
an experience of many years in treating an
average of 100 patients daily, Drs. Copeland,
Neal and Winn feel that they are justified in
claiming that caterrh affects the whole system,
the eyes, ears, nose, throat, bronchial tubes,
lungs, stomach, bowels, kidneys, liver, bladder,
They al<o feel justified in claiming that their
new system of treatment, consisting of local
medication combined with administration of
medicine internally, is the only rational
method of cure. In this they are certainly sus-
tained by the hundreds of testimonials from
reputable citizens which have been published
during the pust four years.
Dr. W. H. Copeland is a graduate of
!".. 1 u-\ in- Hospital Medical College of
New York City, was president of his class
in that famous institution, and, after
thorough hospital training and ex-
perience, devoted his time and attention
to special lines of practice. Dr. Neal and
Dr. Winn passed through a similar
course, and have for yeara been asso-
ciated with Dr. Copeland.
Dr. J. G. Neal won first honors in col-
lege, and was appointed resident physi-
cian of the City Hospital. He filled the
position with honor and received the
hospital diploma. He also holds several
gold medals for special excellence in
vurious branches of medicine, and after
graduation was elected an adjunct
professor of his college.
Dr. A. C. Winn is a graduate of Bellevue
Hospital Medical College, and of the
medical department of the University of
Missouri. They have devoted them-
selves entirely to the treatment of their
specialties. Years of experience In these
special lines, preceded by extensive
hospital work, have fitted them in a
notable degree for the practice of their
