Franklin St. 33 ASTRONOMER TELLS SECRET OF " GRAVITATION ST. LOUIS?Professor Thomas Jeff erson Jackson See. iconoclastic astro nomer and United States naval ob server at Mare Island. Cal., today an nounced he had discovered the cause of gravitation, the greatest single ad vance in the history of science since Newton established the law of grav-i itation in the seventeenth century. A treatise prepared by Professor; Se on his discovery has been in the hands of the Royal Society of Lon don for Ave months. The first an-, nouncement was made to the Royal Society, Professor See said, because it was to this society that Newton promulgated his theories In 1685. Gravitation Is Electrical. "Gravitation." said Professor See. "is an electrical phenomenon and doesj not anct instantly across space, but is ! transmitted with the velocity of light, thus coming from the sun to the earth in eight minutes." Heretofore gravitation has been iso lated from all other forces of the uni verse. efforts of Faraday, Maxwell and others to connect it with electricity having failed. The substance of Professor See's page meoir entitled "Electo dynamic theory of magnetism and of universal gravitation: Discover}' of the cause of gravitation, with proof that thi& fundamental force of nature is propa gated with the velocity of light," goes to show that gravitation is due to elementary currents of electricity cir culating around atoms of matter. As more of these atomic currents,, in re spect to the two bodies, flow in the same direction than in the opposite direction, there always is attraction between all bodies, yet -it is feeble compared to magnetic attraction. Pro fessor See demonstrates. Ampere Was Pioneer. The celebrated French physicist. Ampere, first showed in 1820 that two parallel currents of electricity flowing in the same diretcion attract each other, but when flowing in opposite directions repel. Professor See's dis covery Is an extension to the law dis-? covered by Ampere. He shows the entire universe is governed by forces depending upon electricity in motion. Should the theory of Professor See prove true it would open up an entire ly new view of the forces which gov ern the physical universe and revolu tionize the science of physics. The law of gravitation has been held unique among the laws of nature, not only in its wide generality, taking the whole univers^"in its scope, but in the fact that, so far as known until the researches of Professor See, it is ab soultely unmodified by any condition or cause whatever. All other forms of action between masses of matter vary with circum stances. The mutual action of elec trified bodies, for example, is affected by their relative or absolulte motion. Opens Vast Possibilities. Professor See's theory that gravita tion is an electrical phenomenon, ac cording to the Rev. Martin S. Bren nan of St. Louis, member of the Brit ish Astronomical Society, if true, paves the way for the screening (the overcoming) of gravitation, a prob lem which has bafTled physicists for years and finally was given up with the adoption of the axiom that gravi tation is absolutely unmodified by any condition or course whatever. Unless Professor See's theory that gravitation is an electrical phenome non proves true and unless it is found that gravitation can be screened, the discovery of the cause of gravitation would prove of no practical benefit whatsoever, said Father Brennan. After reading a shot .digest of Pro fessor See's conclusion. Father Bren nan said he still was convinced that' gravitation was an independent focce. 1 Ssore of Oiacoverlea. ] Professor Soe made public his dlB- I coveries In Montgomery City, Mo? I while visiting his mother, Mrs. Mary I A. Soe. | The epoch-making discovery of Pro- i feasor See carries with it a score of other discoveries of fundamental lm- < portance which, he says, open up van entirely new view of the forces which govern the physical uuiverse. In 1906 Professor See detected the i cause of earthquakes and mountain formation in the leakage of the oceans, overthrowing false theories taught in geology for more than a cen tury.' In 1908 he establiBhod the laws of the formation of the solar system and reduced cosmogony to a scientific i ', t. 1.1 t 1.1 r i t i r t. i,,t. 1. basis, since ndoptod by th eleadlng men of science in all European coun tries. La Place's erroneous doctrines that the planets and satellites had been thrown off from their central bodies had been taught for more than three generations. In 1910-11 Professor See investigat ed the depth of tho Milky Way and showed that is was several million light-years, about 0110 thousand times greater -than astronomers had gener ally believed. Professor Sec Is a graduate of the University or Missouri and has re ceived the degrees of. A.M., and Ph.D. from the University of Berlin. In 1891 lie was an observer of the ltoyal Ob servatory of Berlin. H-M-I-H-H-I-M j PRESIDENT HAYDEN SECURES ! JACKLING PROPERTIES ;; ;; (Interview In Boston News Bureau, July 12) \ \ . . < . < . t . . . . . 1 1 1 I1 !? 1"1 I 1 I I I I") 1 I 1 I i t i > Charles Hayden, president of the; Alaska Gold Mines Ctompany, who. with Managing Ditector Jackling, has Just returned from their annual visit to the properties under their charge, says: "The Alaska Gold property is com ing along splendidly? well within the original ostimates of cost and ma terially bettering these estimates in the cost of operation and metallurgi cal result. The method of treatment : of the ore is an innovation in gold mining, but it is a decided commercial success. "The first section of the mill has treated right along in excess of 2500 tons of ore per day, showing that with four sections completed 10,000 tons per day and probably more can be handled. The production has been increasing very rapidly and in June the mill treated 90,790 tons of ore. From the first of Jtane. with on ly the one section in operation, over 2500 tons were treated daily; in the middle of the month, when part of the second section went into opera tion over 3500 tons were dally put through, while at present in excess of 4,000 tons are going through ev er}' 24 hours. Within a few days it will reach over 5,000 tons. "We expect to start operating the third section during the latter part of August. an<^that section will gradual ly work up to 2500 tons per day, so that after September we should bo treating 7500 tons dally. "When the equipment of Alaska Gold was commenced it was on the basis of 6,000 tons per day], with a power development to correspond. We figured on 6,000 horse power develop ment, or about one horse power per ton of ore. It seems safe to figure I now, however, that we will require i but three-fourths horse power per ton I so that the three sections of the mill ? which will be running full by Septem ber can be taken care of by the Sal mon Creek developement- of 6dJ00 i horse power. i "As we shall have a 10,000-ton mill we have started a new power devel opment at Annex Creek. This is a most satisfactory find, and will start with a lower Installation of , 4,000 horse power, which with the Salmon Creek will give all the power neces sary for the 10,000-ton mill. This Annex Creek development will be all ready for use by the first of January coincidently with the completion of the fourth section of the mill. The Salmon Creek development is a great success, and when we were there the water was up to the top of the dam and overflowing?165 feet "That there may be no erroneous impression regarding the plans for Alaska Gold, it should be understood that there is no intention for a year at least of increasing the mill capac ity from the 10,000 tons which will e ready on January 1st. Alaska Goldb can slupply ore for a 20,000 or even a 30,000 ton mill. We believe that the conservative course is to operate a 10-000 ton mill steadily for three or four months so that we shall know positively what the operating results are. Then Alaska Gold can Immed iately begin to pay dividends from the profits accruing from the opera tion of the 10,000 tonp lant. "We see no reason why the inau guration of dividends should not oc cur next July. After that should the stockholders decide to go on with the enlargement of the milling capac ity, coincidently the second power in stallation at Annex Creek will be made, , giving 7,000 additional horse power, which, with the development at Gold Creekfl will amply take care of a 20,000 ton mill. "As the entire development of Al aska?under ground and on the sur face?has been on a larger scalo than was first anticipatedfl is now appears that when the four-section mill and addition horse power are completed at the end of the year, we will have expended about $1,000,000 in addi tion to the funds already raised. If this excess expenditure Is capltolized through a bond issued all of the earn ings of the first mill Installation will be available for dividends from the start. "Thero have been many Irresponsi ble rumors regarding the prospect ive financing of the Alaska Gold Com pany. In order that shareholders may be correctly Informed It may be stat ed that this financing will probably be done. If at all, within the next four months, by $1,000,000 of converti ble bonds, and with this accomplish ed there will be absolutely no further financing for plant enlargement for a year, or possibly two years, thereaf ter. "As to the costs and recoveries ob tained in the portions of the mill now in operation, it may be said that ev ery estimate of our engineers origin ally made is more than being realiz ed. Moreover the mining cost Is well belofr the original estimates. Natur ally, however, the management does not mare to make predictions as to what mining and milling costs ulti mately will be until we have had a "tryout" for some months with 10,000 tons of ore perday. The present min ing and milling costs, the grade .of ore and recovery therefrom as well as underground developments, arc. however, thorughly satisfactorily. Butte & Superior "There is nothing essentially new with regard to the Butte & Superior which is not covered in the quarterly reports of that company. The prop erty is- looking well, and with the constant improvements which are be ing made in the treatment of its ores, recoveries and costs and hence i the production and earnings are at high records, not forgetting, of course in referring to the profits tho high price of spoUer. As to the divident outlook, It may bo said that the pol icy of the directors to keep in the treasury at least $1,000,000 in cash and pay the balance of the earnings to the stockholders as regular and ex tra dividends. In connection with the extra dividends stockholders should understand that notwithstanding that Butte & Superior Is well Bold ahead at high prices, the actual cash does not come Into the company's treasury until the deliveries arc made some months hence. In other words, when :he next dividend Is declared for pay ment Sept. 30 the cash on hand will Se the sole determining factor as to he size of the extra dividend. The same will'apply in December. "There is no particular change to lot in Butte & Superior's under ;round situation. Reserves are open ed, in accordance with Butte mining iractice, not over three years ahead, rhfe Black Rock .shaft is being sunk 'rom the 1600 to the 1800 foot level, nit no development work has as yet ieen done below the 1600, where con litlons are more satisfactory. Utah Copper. "The Utah Copper Company is op sratlng now at 100 per cent, of ca lacity for the first time in its history, rhis means that It is in a position to ako full advantage of the present irice of copper and "consequently is making money fast. Never before lave operating conditions been so fa vorable for Utah Copper. Hitherto my increase in the milling capacity would have been based upon our abll ty to increase the rapidity of strip ping, but the stripping is now so far idvanced that the mine can Increase tonnage as rapidly as any increase in nilling capncfty can be constructed. "Some idea of what Utah is doing nay be gained from the statement that one day last week wo treated 28,000 tons of rre in the mills whose capacity was originally figured at 21, )00 tons per day! This is, of course, i tribute to the advance in metallur iical science in the past few years as well as to the efficiency of our op jrating force. We believe that 30,000 ions a day is a possibility. "With regard to -dividends on the [Jtah Copper?and this applies to the 2hino, Ray Consolidated and the Ne vada Consolidated?the policy which will be followed is this: Their regu ar dividends are at rates which the lirectors believe can be maintained in 13-cent copper. Any further prof ts which may not be necessary -in the :onduct of the business of the various :ompanies will be paid to stockhold jrs at the end of each year accord ng to the custom previously adopted with the Nevada Consolidated."
