IMPORTANT STELLAR DISCOVERY
AT THE LICK OBSERVATORY
Polaris, the North Star, Found to Be Composed
of Three Bodies That Are Con
tinually Revolving.
SAN JOSE, Sept. 9.— A discovery of
great scientific and considerable popular
Interest has just been made by Professor
Campbell with the great telescope of the
Lick Observatory. It is that Polaris, or
the north star, doubtless the b»jst known
star in the whole firmament, is really a
triple system. Two of the bodies in this
system revolve around each other in a
period of four days, and at the same time
move in a much wider sweep around a
third body. In much the same way a3
th<> i arth and moon do around the sun.
The separate bodies which compose the
system cannot be seen with the telescope,
nor is it likely that they ever will be
seen with any instrument. Their exlst
la demonstrated by observations
made with a spectroscope. By a method
which need not be explained here the
ppeed with which a heavenly body is mov
ing toward or away from the earth can
be measured with a spectroscope at
tached to a telescope. The method has
been known for many years, but it is
only recently that the necessary- accu
racy for observations of stars has been
reached by the application of photogra
phy. There are various ways of eh. ck-
Ing the correctness of the results. Thus,
as the sun turns on its axis, one edge
is constantly approaching the earth and
the other is receding from it at the rate
nit l\ miles per second; the spectm
is found to measure this motion
correctly. A grain, the velocity with which
the planets are moving In the line of
fight can be calculated from the known
dimensions of the solar system, and in
this case also the reliability of the sDec

troscopic method has been proved. Ob
servations of ptrys by this method are
now being made at a number of the lead
ing observatories of the world.
According- to the laws of motion a body
once set in m/ition, and left to itself, will
move on foreVer, in a straight line, with
uniform velocity. Any change whatever
in its motion indicates the existence of
a disturbing force. The grreat majority
of the st.-u-s are found to move with un
changing velocity, but in a smnll num
ber of cases the velocity varies, and
these are of great interest to the astron
omer. A star may of course move across
the lire of sight, "as well as In it, but of
the former motion the spectroscope takes
no account.
The existence of a revolving system was
proved by this method in the case of the
famous variable star Algol. It had long
been assumed that the changes in the
light of this star were due to eclipses by
a dark companion, and the correctness
of the hypothesis was proved by Pro
fessnr Yog-el of Germany h.
Quite a number of similar cases are
now known, fourteen of which, including
the brilliant binary star Capella, have
been discovered at the Lick Observatory.
Polaris is now, however, the most inter
esting of these. The velocity changes !n
a period of 3 days 23 hours by about 6
kilometers or nearly fruir milt s per sec
ond. The longer period of change h;is
not yet been determined; it may amount
to several years. It may be some time
before this discovery is verified at other
observatories, as the high degree of ac
curacy necessary to measure with cer
tainty so small a change of motion has
an yet been reached only at Mount Ham
ilton. JAMES E. KEELER.
like a balloon, but when It descended an.
Instant later, "Brock" nailed It. and, with
a quick, hard throw, put the runner out
at first. The play aroused intense enthu
siasm, and earned the San Francisco's
shortstop a great deal of praise. Shee
han took third on the play, and came |
home on O'Connor's single past short.
Eagran retired the side.
Pyne again led oft in the eighth with a
single and took second on a wild pitch.
Iberg struck out for the third time, and
Brockhoft lined one out to deep center,
scoring Pyne. The noise of jubilation had
hardly died out when Krug landed on the
.■•• re. and as it soared to the right field
fence "Brock" romped to the plate. The
next Titan went out. and then two more
tallies were recorded for the local aggre
gation.
i: Lgran put up by far the best game for
Sacramento. He was all over his position,
taking everything in sight. Both pKch
ers were touched up. but their team
mates backed them up superbly. Both
nines arc on their mettle, and today's
game should be a crack-a-jack. Score:

GUARD ATTACKED BY
A BURLY CONVICT
Desperate Struggle at San Quentin
Prison With a Prisoner De
tected Violating the Rules.
SAN QTENTIN PRISON, Sept. 9.—
Thomas Molloy, a strapping convict serv
ing ten years from San Francisco for bur
glary, was detected In a violation of the
prison rules this morning by Guard Ran
dolph, and when an attempt was made
to remove him to the dungeon he fought
so desperately that Captain Russell and
Turnkey McClure had to be called to the
guard's assistance. Randolph received a
hard blow in the region of the stomach,
and was temporarily incapacitated for the
performance of his duties, but was not
seriously injured.
When Molloy was detected in the mis
demeanor he was in his cell and an at
tempt to remove him to the dungeon led
to a tumult, the other convicts rushing to
the windows of their cells and yelling
encouragement to the prisoner at the top
of th~ir voices. Molloy was finally lodged
in the "solitary," and will be kept there
until the Prison Board acts upon his case
next Saturday. Warden Aguirre states
that this is the first time the prisoner has
given the officials any trouble.
