A GRJXAT SHOWISR OF STARb.
THE EXPEO FED METEORIO DIS
The Heavens WilL be Aglow With
Thousands of Meteors-The Frag
ments of a Great Comet.
On the night of November 14 one of
the grandest spectacles ever offered
by the heavens-will be witnessed here
in the form of a grt at fall of Meteo
rites. They are known as Leonids and
their dazzling performance, which oc
curs only once in every thirty-three
years, will be plainly visible in South
In this wonderful display the meteo
rites will touch the atmosphere of the
earth and become ignited by the
rapidity of tiheir flight. Millions of
them will fall and they will appear as
dazzling globes o; multi-colored flame.
The fact that they ignite and dissolve
on contact wita the atmosphere is
all that saves the earth from destruc
Scientists all over the world arc
making elaborate preparations for ob.
serving the appearance of the Leonid8.
This century has been the first that
astronomers have discovered the cause
of the great November meteoric
shower. It was Tempel who found
that the Leonlds are fragments of a
. former comet.
Reckoned by the figures of the heav
ens the Loonids arc but infants. Ac
cording to Prof. Simon New';oinb, Tem
pel's comet has been dead only thirty
three hundred years. The cause of
the explosion was the heat generated
by the rate at which the comet re
volved as it tore through space. The
sight, as the groat fiery body burst
into a million molton fragments, must
have been grand and awful beyond the
powers of human comprehension.
But for the fragments of the burn
ing body there could be no rest. The
visible but relentless forces which
drew the larger body through count-loe
ages along it certain path were at work
also among the shattered flying parti
cles. They fell into line. The larges1
fragments forged to the front and thi
smaller particles fell in behind for i
million miles and more. The unend
Ing journey, interrupted for a while
was taken up again along the old pat
The course of Tempol's comet, ani
of its subsequent fragments, cumpletc
ly encircles the orbit of the eardt
touching it at one place only on it
outer edge. Once only in thirty thre
yeare does Tompol's comet completo it
orbit, and once only do the fragment
of the dead comet, myriads in number
trail across the orbit of the earth
When Uils does happen, however, mil
lions of these particles are drawn fron
the orbit and fall into the atmospherI
of the earth with an effect whici
dazzles the spectators.
The single meteor or meteorite tha
makes when it strikes the earth's at
mosphere the so-called shooting sta

a detached fragment of some shatter
ed planet, and it wanders more or les
at random through space until it ce(ifl
within the circle of attraction of som
larger body, when gravity cauies it t
fall. In the course of its uoscer
through the atmosphore the meteosit
generates so much heat that it is or
tirely consumed ; the meteor, beini
larger, continues on and strikes t~h
Occeasionally the heat p-enerated b
tne r..ateor is so great that it burst
before coining in contact with an,
solid substance. In such a case It I
termed a lire-ball. But m~ither th
single meteorite nor the meteor can b
observed by the telescope or by th
n'aked eye exccpt at thle brilliant mnc
ment of Its death,
But the comet is a creature of the
skies more to be reckoned with. 1rr-a
tic as its wanderings may seem to thi
unlearned, in reality it pursues a e
finite course among the mor.
orbits of the stars. - m regular
orbit which ,t&:%~.tau Iengthi of th(
comp '- A"r., sravels varies from th<
- vlysmall distance of a fevy
hundred millions to one that reaches
into the thousands of billions. Th<
time which different comets take ii
completing their orbits varies froni
three and a half to a hund red thousant
years. The preciseness of astronomi
cal knowledge is such that, the exac
rate per second of the movement o
these bodies can be determined ani
the time at which the) will arrive a
any given point of their orbits can hi
predicted to the second.
Regar ding the approaching meteori<
display Prof. William A. Harknse
who is in charge of the astronomica
department of the United States gos
ernent naval observatory, said :
" We are unable to predict the exac
hour at which the November meteor]
showers will begin. From the bei
present estimates it may be eypecte
that the showers will reach a max:
mum at 1 a. in. on the morning of th
15th of November. They w ill proba bi
begin three or four hours earlier tha
thi fte fail in small bursts. They wil
continue throughout the morningc
the 16th of November and will be moi
or lis observable during the evening
and mornings of the 15th, 16th and 17t
of November, although on each suc
ceeding day the number of meteors ot
servable will diminish.
"These meteors andl meteorites vari
in weight from a few grains to manj
pounds. They striae the earth's at
mosphore at a height of seventy-foui
miles and begin to burn, being ontirol'
consumed when they are at a heigh1
of fifty miles.
" The phenomenon of a groat me
teorio shower is generally a perfectl)
noiseless one. When the streak is first
formed it is narrowi and perfectly
straight, but soon becomes serpentine
and assumes an irregular figure as it
drifts along under the influence of the
wind currents in the upper region of
the atmosphere. These streaks or
trails are of various colors, owing part
ly to the composition of their elemen
tary substances and partly to their
altitude. Some are of a delicate
greenish hue, while others light up
the skies with a ruddy glow. Streaks
of orange, red and white, with bluish
white, commingle to form a most re
markable and beautiful spectacle. Oc
casionally an orange colored meteor
may be observed, leaving iin its wake a
streak of green.
"MAany valuable results will no'
doubt be gained from this year's ob
servations, This will be first time in
their history that the Leonide will be
the centre of a systematic observation
throughout the world."
If it were not for our elastic atmos
phere it would be dangerous to be on
earth dut tng the coming bombard
ment. Pieces of iron as large as a wal
*nut, moving at the rate of from sigh
toen~ to forty miles a second would go
*througbh the roofs of our houses with
. itl etration, and would set every
the largor ones and they are extremely
rare, ever reach the surface of the
earth. There are but two Instances
recorded in history of men having been
killed by meteoric stones-one In Italy
in the 13th century, and one in our
country in the early part of the pres
ent century. Our air is not only in
dispensable for respiration, but it pro
teots us from being stoned to death by
the cosmic gravel.
According to Dr. Denning, the most
brilliant display in our annals was the
November meteoric shower of 1833. In
Boston alone it is estimated that 240,
000 meteors Nere visible during the
seven hours' duration of the shower,
and he says :
"The vords 'prodigious,' 'stupon
dous,' aSU 'magnificent,' do not do
scribe it. Compared with the spion
dor of this celestial exhibition, the
most brilliant rockets and fireworks of
art bore less relation than the most
tiny star to the dread glare of the
sun. "iStars" fell until there was none
" A Bouth Carolina planter, writing
of this meteoric display and Its effect
'ipon the negroes on his plantation
says: "I was suddenly awakened by
the most distreesing cries that ever
fell on my oars. Shrieks of horror
and cries of mercy I could hear from
most of the negroes of three planta
tione, amounting in all to (00 or 800.
" Whilo earnestly listening for the
cause, I heard a faint voice near the
door calling my name. I arose and
taking my sword, stood at the door.
At this moment I heard the same
voice besoching me to rise and say
ing, "1 Oh, my God ! The world is on
"I then opened the door, and it is
dillicult to say which excited me the
most-distressed cries of the negroes.
Upward of a hundred lay prostrate on
the ground-some speechloss, but with
hands upraised, imploring God to save
the world and them. The scene was
truly awful; for never did rain fall
much thicker than did the meteors to
ward the earth, east, west, north and
south it was the same.
" It may be safely said," continuo
Dr. Donning, " that in the month ol
November ill astronomors and a great
majority of the general public will be
com meteoric observers, for the pho

Light on the Situation.
The Chicago Tribune prints a sum
wary of the situation in the Philippine
islands from its speclal correspondent
Richard H. Little. The letter, which
is dated Manila, September 14, says :
" Here are some figures, made seven
months and a balf after our campaign
against the Lilipinos began. Say it is
live miles to Angeles-we hold posses
slon of the railroad up to that point.
We can fairly claim possession of the
land a half mile on each side of the
track. We have possession of the wa
gon road, and lot us say, a half mile
on each side from San Fernando
through 3acoloor to Santa Rita, eight
miles, with four 'nilles to Guagua. We
have a road from Mololos to Ballanag,
11 miles northeast. We can claim 11
square miles hero.
" We have Manila, out as far as the
water works, live miles away. That
gives us, say, 25 miles around the city.
" Then we have the road and a half
mile each side down 18 miles to Imus.
Then we have Calamba and some other
points on the lake that General L.Lwton
captured before he was ordered back
These towns are not approached by
road, but by boat across the Laguna do

find we have 117 squaro miles.

" Outside of Luzon the insurrection
seems to be growing. The Insurgents
hold ports in Mindanao, the largest is
land to Luzin in the Philippines, and
said to be incalculably rich in gold and
silver mines, iron and copper ores, and
other minerals, besides possessing won
derful forosts of hardwood. No Amer
icans have dared venture there as yet,
as General Otis has sent no troops tu
the island. 1nglisbmen and Germans
are prowling about the island gotting
all the concessions they cLn. It Is said
soveral prospecting parties are at work,

out of the flat, open country into ioun

A numler of prominent Germanciisrvcreom I livdtn,

an address in Cincinnati, and the fol- sieo i erere ae ol.

It was a matter ofrge om obe
unable to accede to your request to de- iie... . .
liver a non-partisan address on i M anfm cuitne ~ewo
perialism in Cincinnati on my return wr hno otayoiio
trip from Chicago. This was partlyrilewudhvbenwlwotth
due to my anxiety to reach home and
because a non-partisain discussion of~*Telutoithsy~~~er..
this question is no longer recognized.t6mtobeaclih. m.
I ol epleased if this question fl lcin eut naxiinrti~.
could be taken out of party politcs, ae ofutq rges nh.~
because if this is not done the onlypahtimealmtonusjng
choice that will be loft us next year
will be between a party representing kefrevns hud.tevnte:
imperialism and sound money and mi usin''a:wl ofot~1
another party which, in opposition tonetyainhePedeil
imperialism, will combine with it an wl eipraim n, os~ h
unsound money issue. rpbi rmhrgets ag~J1
This alternative can only be avoided r ur nlaatsciies~~n
if the imperial policy is removed andcouamntoth
the first step necessary to that end is sol ewthl taycs.

the main issue in the Presidentialancosiceadntprm,.imf

are already apparent and I see that
