Formed tiy Fragment Struck
From Saturn's Kings
by Mrtcorx.
Oxford Astronomer Drclnrrs He
Got Proof From Chi
nese Hceords.
Special Catilr fietpatch to Till: Si'V,
TOSTion, Pec. 13. llerlKrt Hall Tumor,
Pnrlllnn professor of astronomy nt Ox
ford. Iiiib promulgated a novel theory that
tun spots arc formed by fragment struck
from Saturn's Hiiks by meteors known ait
leonlds. These fruRinents falllms on the
tun came disturbances on Its surface.
I'rof. Turner, In an article In the Times
this mornlnK, says It Is Improbable that
the Idea has occurred previously to any
one and he expects that It will be received
with Incredulity, but he contends that the
evidence In Its favor Is remarkably stronR
and easily piesentable.
His argument was initially based upon
the puzzling irregularities In the well
known sun spot cyce of about eleven
years. He was led by a study of the
irregularities to connect them with leontd
showers, "but." he says, "the orbit of
leonlds is known to keep at respectful
distance from the sun and it was not
pjsslble to connect them directly with
oi 'bursts from tho solar surface. Some
Intermediary wus necessary, and the hy
pothesis was formulated of a subsidiary
warm travelling In an eloncated orbit
which grazed the sun nt perihelion and
elo passed so near the leonld orbit as to
suffer 'perturbations' whenever the
laonlds came past nt the right moment.
"Once this hypothesis vmn made every
thing fitted in with the known facts so
that the puzzling Irregularities of the sun
pot cycle were explained In terms of the
perturbations by the leonlds."
Eventually I'rof. Turner came to the
conclusion that tho subsidiary form was
i part of the leonld form, detached by
Saturn's action on some favorable occa
sion. He contends that, extraordinary as
It may seem, direct evidence of this Is
available. Then he shows how he dates
these possible encounters between Saturn
and the leonlds as they ure approximately
calculable. As modern records aro un
available earlier than 1750 he had re
course to the Chinese, who recorded ap
pearances of large sun spots nearly 2,009
years ago. In tho Chinese records he
found remarkable clues to the problem.
Of tho formation of sun spots I'rof. Tur
ner says anion other things:
"Fragments plunged Into tho sun's sur
face at tho enormous velocity of 400 miles
n second. In a. direction opposite to that in
which the sun is rotating. It Is only nat
ural that they should drive the neighbor
hood of impact backward a little and
heiico when wo observe the rotation of a
i-pot we are not observing the true rota
tion of the sun surface, but of the dis
tance. This explains some facts long
known but not hitherto understood."
I'rof. Turner concludes by saying that
It would be prematura to regard tho hy
pothesis as finally established, but he con
tends that It Is supported by all facts
hitherto examined.

downfall of the Manchu. will not be
accepted, it Is believed here, by any of
the Powers.
All the Ministers are (insulting their
Governments, and It Is assumed that they
are advising against tho withdrawal of
the troops. It Is belli that although
foreigners and property have been scrup
ulously respected since the revolution
this has been largely due to the ptes
enco of the foreign contingents and the
presence of the warships at Tientsin.
It Is suggested that ltussla's magna

In the absence of such Information Sec

transport to the Mexican port at once.
In accordance with Mr. Hryan's request
the transport will leave (latveston at ones
for Tampleo and should arrive there
within forty-eight hours. Mr. Bryan's
request was based on the reports of
conditions furnished by Rear Admiral
It was learned that Admiral Fletcher
went so far as to say that either a ship
must be sent for the relief of refugees on
shore or he would have to land American
forces If proper protection was to be given
the foreign iiou-combatanta.
The Admiral recommended that the
Ward Line steamer duo at Vera Cruz he
requisitioned Into the oervice of the
United States and ordered at once to
Tumplco. The sending of the army trans
port was decided upon Instead.

tlrynn-Harrlson Letters.
Letters were exchanged between Sec
retary Hryan and Secretary Harrison this
afternoon. Mr. Hryan wrote to Mr. Uar
rlson as follows:
"Sir: Admiral Fletcher reports that
fighting is going on at Tampleo, that
Americans, Hrltlsh and Oerman vessels
are now full of refugees and that there
are yet other refugees ashore needing
temporary shelter and protection. In these
circumstances It seems desirable that an
army transport should, If possible, be sent
from Ualviston to Tampleo to take these
refugees on boaid.
"Accommodations will, It is understood,
be needed for riot less than 500 persons,
and for these It Is probable that lodging
nnd food will bo required for several days.
If ou have at Ualvrston a transport
available for this purpose I have the
honor to request that It be sent Immedi
ately to Tampleo."
Secretary Harrison replied as follows:
"The receipt of your letter of Decem
ber 12 concerning conditions at Tampleo,
Mexico, Is acknowledged.
"The following telegram has Just been
sent to Urlg.-Uen. Tasker H HIIss, In
charge of transports at Oalveston:
" 'The Secretary of War directs that the
transport Sumner, with not less than
10,000 rations, two medical otllrers and
detachments of hospital corps, be sent nt
once to Tampleo, Mexico. Send Capt.

with view to full cooperation In matter
of furnishing refuge to such people as
may be indicated by authorities repre
senting the United States at that port." "
According to latest advices received at
the Navy Department fighting continues
at Tampleo between Federals and revo
lutionists without definite result.
Heeause of the topographical situation,
tho city being nearly surrounded by water,
many ottlcers here believe the lighting
for possession of Tampleo may be pro
longed, despite the fact that the Fed
eral garrison Is outnumbered by the rib
els two to one. According to reports
received here the Federals have between
2,0"0 nnd 3.000 men In the city and the
