passed the sun on schedule time Inst
1 evening and the sun rose this morn
Ing ahead of the nucleus of the wan
I derer When tho earth will pass
l I through tho tall of the comet can not
bo determined with any degree of
accuracy All that is known In that
1 it Is very close to the nearer wall
I of the ail and likely to enter It at
any moment
These arc tho net results of the ob
I I servatlons made at the Carnegie Oh
servator > throughout last night and
today It IB announced by the scien
tists here assembled that the general
public need not depend upon export
prognostications hereafter In determ
ining whether or not the earth bus
passed through the ordeal of leaping
through tho gaseous streamer that
ejects for many millions of miles in
the wake of the comet Observe these
rules and know tho status of the visi
tors itinerary
If Just after sunset this evening
the tail of the comet points toward
r the sun the earth has not yet passed
I through tho tall
IfthtJ tallpoints away from tho I
sun the earth vlll have passed
through during daylight hours
IT the tail points toward and away I
+ from the sun at the same time it
will mean that the earth Is about to
outer it and will pass through during
the night
Failure of astronomers correctly to I I
ascertain tho moment of the earth
entering the comets tail is explain
ed In this way
Until this morning tho comet be
lug between the earth and the suit
it was Impossible to duturmlnc the
extent of tho tall Gazed at through
telescopes on this planet the under
side of the tail which was toward
the earth appeared to be straighL
It was not until this morning when
tho comet arose beyond the sun
that the extent of the curvature
could be detected
This mornings observations showed
he comets tall more clearly defined
It afforded a magnificent spectacle
stretching like the glow of u great
searchlight from the eastern horizon
clear through tho Milky Way and well
past the zenith
Manx shooting stars were seen in
tho comets tall this morning after
the moon had set
Tail is Lagging
San Jose Cal Hay in Director
W W Campbell of Lick observatory
this morning furnished the following
statement to the Associated Press
Lick Observatory Mount Ham
Ion Mry 19 1910Tho earth did not
pass through the tail of Valleys
I comet up to daylight today On the
t contrary even before the moon had
t Ret the tail was visible In the east
f ern sky at least 110 degrees In length
and perhaps IfiO degrees The doubt
as to its length arises from the fact
that the bright background of tho
Milky Way Interfered with observa
tions of Ils extremity In appearance
it was very much tho same as Wed
nesday morning except that it was
nearly twice as wide this morning
f due no doubt to Its closer proximity
to tho earth
r As predicted In my message of I
Wednesday ovonln the tall lagged be
hind the straight line drawn from
the sun through the head of the
comet This lagging at the point I
I through which
the earth was expect
ed to amounts
pass certainly to
eral million miles The diameter of
the tall at tho point In which we are
Interested 11000000 miles from the
head was about eight degrees If the
tail In day light had been almost in
contact with the earth we would
have expected tho angular diameter
to be much greater than it was The J
tail was therefore probably several I
million miles away In which case the j
I earth and tall did not meet this morn I
Ins If this meeting Is delayed until I
P Thursday afternoon or Thursday i
night today May 19 then there
can bo little doubt that the earth win
not pass through the tall at nil but
will pass to the south of it The rca
Loll for this Is a simple one The
tall lags behind in he plane of tho
earths orbit as the comets orbital
plane makes an anglo of 18 degrees I I
with the earths orbital plane the
tail therefore draws away front the
plane In which tho earth is moving I
and the earth will pass to the south
of IL The observed position of tho i
tall this morning was appreciably J
further north than that of yesterday i
This lagging of tin tall produces
an interesting situation If we could
have observed the entire comet this
morning wo should have seen the head
of the comet well below tho sun and I
tho tail extending far above the sun
We have been so northerly In tho
plane of the comets orbit during the
past fortnight that It has been im I
possible to observe directly the lag
ging of the tall for the curvature has
been exactly nwnv from us If the
observer were seated out in space far
to tho north or to the south of the
earth and the comet he would un
doubtedly have been able to soo the
tall strongly curved backward with
I reference to the direction or motion
of the comet I
Our conclusions yesterday that the i
tall Is lagging were based on the fact i
that the angular diameter of the tall I
did not increase 80 rapldly as It
should have done lisa the tail been
pointing exactly away from the sun

et or rather the tall oC > the visitor
was visible In the eastern sky from
the observatories on Mount Wilson
and Mount Lowe at ho usual hour
this morning from 330 oclock until
dawn Director George 13 Hale of
tho Carnegie Observatory on Mount
Wilson said today that faulty calcu I
lations as to when the earth would I
pass through the tall of the comet
were due to the fact that there was a
great curvature in the tall which
could not he estimated accurately Un I
doubtedly the head of the comet hod
passed the sun at the lime predicted I
but calculations as to when thu earth
would come Into contact with the tall
if at all were largely guess work he
said The comet illuminated the east
ern sky to the east of Venus this
morning extending from the Milky
Way to the horizon It was plainly
visible as soon as the moon had set
Mount Lowc observatory reported
that according to observations taken
there It was believed that the earth I
was about to pass into the tall of
the comet at 1030 oclock today Pa J
cific coast time That portion of the
tall visible tills morning In the cm t
ern sky measured 110 degrees it be

Speaker Cannon Is Very
Bitter in His
New York May 19 Shooting was
too gentlemanly a fate for certain Re
publicans thundered Speaker Cannon
of the house of representatives last
night as he addressed the annual
banquet of the National Association
of Manufacturers at the Waldorf
Speaker Cannon was making an
eloquent defense of his conduct as
speaker and he was wildly cheered
You helievo the Republicans have
a majority of forty four In the house
of representatives said the speaker
and yet wo are under the swayI
will not say of dishonesty mis
taken people and now and then a
demagogue seeking power and I can 1
pick out among them men who would
have competed with Judas who be
trayed hlamaster
Wo have a great Republican lresl
dent nnd a Republican majority yet
wo cannot say whether there are not
enough cowards to Hock with tho I
Popullstic Democratic majority and
leave us without nn efficient Republi
can majority
If there were two armies drawn
up in actual conflict do you know
what would bo done with such men
Shoot them cried one of the din
Would Havo Them Hanged
Shoot them thundered tho speak
er Shoot them That would bo too
honorable a death for them Hems
ing would he their fate
It is the essence of popular gov
ernmont that majorities should rule
and be held responsible for their mis
takes Therefore 1 ask you to male
a manly light for the Republican
party so that when the polls close
In November you may give a majority
to tho Republicans In tho house oC
representatives and hold It responsible
or give a majority to tho Democratic
Popullsllc minority
In 1912 we elect a president on
March d the present congress goes
out of existence if I were a mere
partisan Id like to tee the Demo
crats have full power In both houses
so they would be forced because ot
thou opposition to the Payne tariff
law to act upon their pretensions and
enact a new tariff law then thor
would have that to defend ratlior than
misrepresent tho present tariff law
They would have a baby of their own I
to protect
Save He lo Patriot
I I were a mere partisan Id be
glad to seo Dolllver Bristow LaKol
IJttc and Clapp of Minnesota join
hands hands with Champ Clark and
company But that would bring sor
row shortened wages and misery to
millions of hearthstones therefore as
a man of 71 who will soon be where
1 will wear either a muslin or as
bestos halo Id rather march to de
feat in the future than to have our
Populist or socalled progressive
friends reaping a victory
i would rather than we carry the I
next house and senato by a sound real
Republican majority although we lost
in 1912 Id postpone the evil day
as long as possible and perchance
though It Is n forclorno hope wisdom i
mo > come south of Mason and DixonK I
land God bless OI1YOII need not
bother about New England shell take i I
care of herself
Earlier in his address the speaker
said The demagogue the short I
sighted man the specialist the phil
osopher was about to say tho col
lege professor but there fire notable
lltlonsnnd fault with our coun j
try To such I have no message
They sometimes occupy the uplift
magazines of tho metropolitan dallies

Roselle N J May 19lght
comet watchers wore thrown into a
state of terror as tho result of a

the passage through the tall of the
comet Boehn with tho aid of a small
balloon a quantity of sodium a time
fuse and a stick of dynamite con
trived nn apparatus which would rise
Into the air to a height of four thou
sand feet nnd then explode with a
terrific roar
The apparatus was released In a
large vacant field south of tho town
and worked to perfection The explo

graph companies feared the passage
of the earth through the comets tall
would have an effect on their wires
similar to that of tho aurora borealis I
which is responsible for ground cur
rents making the transmission of
dispatches impossible The com
panies wero prepared to overcome in
terference by the use of Intermediate
batteries and the avoidance of
grounded wires No disturbances
were reported however except slight
interference which was felt on tho I
wires of one company between Van j

over Tex Rickards announcement
last night that Jenries and Johnson
will meet here to battle for the

It has been many years since a 45
lound fight was pulled off In San
Francisco owing to a city ordinance
which provides for boxing matches of
limited duration
Heretofore limited duration has
spoiled twenty rounds to flstiana but
that Is only a customary interpreta
tion of tho law and it Is understood
that no barrier will be raised ag l st
an extension of the established fight
Governor Gillotts widely published
view of the situation has con re
ceived with much satisfaction ny all
interested in the big battle and the
statements in today papers as
coming from Disrict Attorney FIckert
are lIkewiso regarded as reassuring
The district attorney is quoted thus
