Violent Vibration Clear Across Continent r
1 VASHINGTON April 18The San Irancijco earthquake Ka readied across the continent
1 r The seismograph at the weather bureau here mowed violent agitation about 830 this morning The pen X
c passed off the record sheet at that time The instrument at 12 oclock was still under vibration showing X
that the earthquake had not ceased X
c In connection with the vibration in this city Prof Willis Moore of the weather bureau eaid C
today that the eruption of Vesuvius was recorded during its entire period on the magnetic in instruments 11
I the research station at Mount Weather a few miles irom this city in Virginia Prof Miller stated X
1 however that this was not an earthquake record but rather that Vesuvius acted like a powerful wireless X
I 1 transmitter and Mount Weather as the receiver Vesuvius with its eruptions there disturbing the diet X
trical potentials which disturbances sent out electro magnetic waves that encircled the earth The re X
X cords at lount Weather were clear and distinct Prof Moore was not prepared to say whether the X I
eruption of Vesuvius has anything to do with the present earthquake X
The seismograph at the weather bureau here at 1245 was still recording violent vibrations The X
second shock felt in San Francisco at 815 this morning was clearly indicated by the weather bureaus X
instruments at Washington this bowing that the entire continent still is affected X
