COMET "A 1910"
UNITED TltnSS LEASED WIBB.
San Francisco, Jan. 28. The res
idents of this section of the state
will climb to the highest places to
night to view comet "A 1910," ti
, celestial vagrant that has appeared
'in tho western sky.
The visitor was first sighted by a
lucky few two nights ago.- Last
alight the comet had increased In
brilliancy and length of flight so
that thousands were able to watch
it until it disappeared under the
. -wiestorn rim of the horizon.
The visitor at first is somewhat
difficult to locate as it begins slowly
to come Into view, owing to the light
of the sun and its own brilliancy.
As the sun's rays recede and the
ky grows darker, however, the
comicft first appearing as a faint star,
"begins to shine of its own lights
' Tho tail gradually grows longer and
brighter until by six o'clock in tho
evening its full proportions are seen.
Then it is noted that the tail roaches
nearly two-thirds up the arch of tho
ky towards tho zenith.
"The huge comet," says Edgar
Luclen Larkln, tho astronomer,
"now on display north of the sun' at
sunset is the largest foreign body
ver in the solar system so far as
Is known since the art of writing
"From tho beginning: of Chinese
records, B. C. 2,000, and Chaldean,
no such collosal comet has been
mentioned. Tho comet proper at
ihls. writing, S p. m., Janpaury 2G,
1910, is not tho largest on record,
but its attendant mass of. luminous
mattor Is wider in area than can bo
conceived of a vivid imagination.
The area of the sun Is about one
ilfth square degree, but the area of
tho luminous star is high above and
far to the south of the comet Is not
less than 1,000 square degree. Tho
comot at sunset was roughly 25 de
grees in length. The length was
vertical, but tho stom was not less
than 10 degree in width, leaning
toward tho south. North of tho
comet's length, tho sky was normal,
"but far and away toward tho south
for 20 dogneos and toward tho zenith
60 degrees even to Saturn, the en
tire sky was covored with brilliant
natter. No such thing is recorded
In tho history of man. This comot
Is magnlflaeut beyond all powers of
description. The nucleus is of enor
mous diamotor and we, are now
making history that will endure for

it will be on exhibition here for the
reason that they do not know the
comet's orbit and are not certain but
nearly sure that it has passed back
of the sun and is swinging away
from Old Sol.
The vagrant of the sky is not eo
brilliant as Venus, its nearly plane
tary neighbor but it lights the hea
vens with -its own and tho reflected
lighted light of tho sun and has the
appearance of a great search light
sweeping the heaven's vault.

cupany of the institution up to the
very last for fear that moving tho
sick would result disastrously, but
the flood today made it impossible to
postpone action any longer.
The belt railway between Courcel
les and LaVellous was flooded this
afternoon, and this channel of trans
portation, which has been in use up
to this time, was abandoned.
The authorities this evening are
making a special effort to insuro
enough food supplies for tho hospi
tals ,as the situation has reached a
point where tho officials bellove they
must use heroic methods to make
sure that the food now obtainable is
placo dwhere it is most needed.

Paris, Jan. 2S. Tho dangor of
buildings collapsing as the result of
their foundations being underminod,
will be greater than over when tlw
waters begin to recede, according to
tho goevrnmont engineers today, as
at present the resistance of the flood
filling the excavations is believed to
be actually giving support to many
of the weakened walls.
So far It has beon Impossible to
give a complete estimate of tho dam-
ago done to tho underground net
work of tunnels and conduits. The
engineers believe, however, that
throughout tho flooded districts the
underground passages have boon so
badly damaged that they cannot be
cleared except by many months of

Paris, Jan. 28. Tho mombers of
the cabinet this evening debated the
question of whether thay should de
clare Paris In n state of siogo so the
city could bo cleaned under' strictly
military -regulations In ordor to pre-
vont disease. . t ...
It is not generally believed that
this action will bo taken, but tho
fact that .it is under discussion
shows that tho authorities believe
tho situation Is desperate.
After remaining about stationary
for an hour midday, tho Seine roso

the result of the warm weather
molting tho snow above Paris, tt
is bolleved tonight that tho crest of
the flood has passed. Tho highest
point was registered this afternoon
when the official gnugo showed. 41
feet 4 Inches at Pont Royal.
Tho current is violent and tho wa
ter Is so turbulent about tho gaug?
tonight that it Is difficult to got any
exact idea of the movoment of the
main body of tho flood.
Tho officials are encouraged by
the fact that the river already has
fallen 14 inches at Malluna, 20
miles above Paris, and they expect
that by tomorrow morning tho re
cession of the water will bo so clear

assuranco to the people that the

claimants in the Cunningham case
were friends and business associates
He testified that Balllnger said to
"I want a thorough investigation of
these cases, whether they are my
friends or not." Glavis said that
two of the claimants were mentioned
by Ballinger as his friends.
Continuing his testimony, Glavis
"A little over a month after I left
Washington, I received notice that
tho coal claims were to be clear list
ed for patent. I answered with a tel
egram protesting, and later sent a let
ter to Mr. Balllnger, asking that the
clear listing orders be revoked."
This line of testimony brought out
tho fact that the later the orders
woro revoked by Chief of Field Service-Schwartz.
Attornoy Brandeis stated:
"This point is one of the things
which the commission has been asked
to investigate, the reason why, only
a fortnight after Mr. Glavis had been
conferring with Mr.Balllnger and Mr.
Schwartz, and they gave tho orders
for investigating tho claims carefully,
there was an order Issued absolutely
reversing this stand, and without
any conference with Mr. Glavis."

Two Salem Merchants Return
From an Extended East
After several weeks of "seeing
America first," for both pleasure and
business, D. R. Yantls, Salem's popu
lar clothier, and Claud Boll, of tho
Bell confectionery dispensary, have
returned to their homes in this city.
"Tho East Is suro great," said Mr.
Yantls last ovenlng, "but Oregon Is
