Just ns I expected, tho democrats cf
lins County ha VG made ono fool blunder
already. This thing of roqulrtug a ma
jority of tho vote? oast, be toro a man can
be nominated by the Primary System,
smelt to ino vory much Uko hum-uni
at the start; and now wo will all have to
acknowledge that a pnrt ia greater than
tho wholOi or that 1000 votes will do
for n majority although 12G0 ls not
enough. If tho next D?mocratie Con
vention is composed of sensible men it
will do away with thin silly humbug.
I have rooolvod request-' from various
localities to explain more In detail my
theory Of earthquakes. This itt just the
thing that I did not expect to do. My j
solo object was to put tho sciolists on
thu right track, and then let thom work
out Ibo details for themselves. I will
say, however, in regard to those open
inj-s in tho earth, w hich havo been 80611
tn different localities, that their expla
nation is very simple. The round ones,
or those approaching that form, were
made by a direct explosion of electricity
upwards from tho bowels of tho earth.
In other w.ords, in each case il was a
bolt of lightning striking up through
the thin crust of the earth. 1 say Unit
crust, because such openings will not
bo found In any locality only whore the
crust is thin and weak. Ol' course? the
sand and water thrown up, or a portion
of it, at least, carno from a depth as
groat, and no greater, than thal of the (
point where the explosion initiated: and
of course these substances at first wore
hot, for lightning heats anything it
touches. As to tho cracks, tho mere
slinking of the earth is sufficient to ac
count for them. In fact, from the vio
lence of the shake, OHO Would OX poet to
lind thom oven moro frequent than thov
1 w ill mention only one moro circum
stance: in most cases the Electricity
just came OOKillg through thc crust of
the earth. This lt might do oven in
places \Vhero tho shake was not felt.
Thus it is stated that in "Cincinnati nine
ont of every toil persons imagined that
they wore sick, ami many dbl not know
until morning tin an earthquake
had occured." If itv not Electricity
then, w lint was lt? I. lt was not Electric
ity it was some other subtile agent, as
yet unknown to science. In other
places thc earth's ? rust might bo too
thick and linn to permit tin? escape of
Electricity in any appreciable quantity,
and yet the shako might bc very decided.
.So that any amount of negative testimo
ny is worth nothing, on this question.
If tin? scientist want posit ive albrmati ve
testimony, they can get plenty in this
locality,that is unimpeachable. Tin?
mero shaking of the carib wdll not ac
count for tin! strange behavior of thc
chickens, cows, dogs, horses and other
animals, as every mao knows wdio has
had any experience in thc transporta
tion of live stock. I repeat, if it was not
Electricity, lt was soul.? agent unknown
to science. All this talk about land
slides, the cooling of the earth, VolCHIlb
action, dre la the merest twaddle.
