The proposal of Dr. Triana for in ternational unity against trans oceanic Interference was the more re markable b caue of the difference which has existed between the United States and Columbia over the aliena tion of the Panama canal zone, which lias now become the property of the United States, although Columbia is st !1 seeking compensation.

SCIENCE UNDERTAKES PRODIGIOUS TASK OF CO'UNTING THE STARS By Frof . A. L. Cortie. TO count exactly the number of the stars to the last unit, even in any restricted system, such as that of which our sun is a member. Is quite beyond the power of the highest intelligence of man. The Psalmist calls upon us to pralae the Lord because He "telleth the number of the stars and calleth them all by their names." (Psalms cxlvi. 4.) The utmost that is possible to the Intellect of man reasoning upon observations obtained visually, and with optical and photographic aid. Is to make a very good surmise, in round num bers, as to a. lower or minimum number of the hosts of stars that stud the vault of the skies, and to give some notion as to a possible upper limit. , Seeing that these numbers arc of the order of hundreds of millions. It is evident that such knowledge as we possess is based on a series of counts in selected areas of the. sky, ascer taining the law of Increase or decrease of the numbers of fainter stars over the lucid stars; and then averaging the results for the wiiole 6ky. Some twenty-five years ago an International commission parcelled out the heavens in ione3 among eighteen observatories, so that some thirty million stars might be photographed with identical instruments on a uniform scale, and a great chart of the starry firmament thus j?or- "trayed" TTTo woPk Ts'yet'veryTar rfota Us com' ,pletion. Obviously even should it be possible to photo graph every star, even the faintest that sends Its light to our photographic plates, an army of astronomers would be required for several generations to come to make an approximate count of the numbers recorded, without risk of error. The most suitable method for counting the stars is to take photographs of the heavens, and then count the images impressed upon the plotes. If' we further desire to arrange the stars according to the numbers in each mag nitude, we must have some standard chart of stars containing a great variety of magnitudes with which to compare our star images. The most wonderful of all the sights in tha stellar universe are tho glorious clouds of stars that span the heavens like a great luminous belt, and constitute tho Milky Way. In modern stellar astronomy the plane that contains the sun and passes through tho centres of these masses of stars is taken as a fundamental plans of reference, and is called the galactic plana or equator. Obviously the stars aro mor6 thickly crowded together in the plane of the galaxy than at its poles, and there are innumer ably more faint stars than bright stars in tho neighborhood of this central reference plane. But before it is possible to apply the result3 of counts of stars m ado on regions near .the galactic poles, and on regions near the equator to deduce the law of increase of faint stars of each successive magnitude over the whole sky, the question naturally arises as to whether the condennation toward the galaxy shown by the brighter stars of magnitudes Ave to nine, per sist for the fainter stars. Opinions of astrono mers havo differed widely on this important point. According to Professor Kapteyn, of Groniniren. who classified the stars according to their visual magnitudes, the condensation towards the galaxy increases greatly with di minishing brightness, the value for all stars greater than magnitude 17, rising as high as the 24th magnitude. Knowing the law of variation it would be pos8iblo to get the number of stars of mag nitudes below the seventeenth though they have not actually been counted, and likewise since the ratio of increase in each magnitude is continually approaching zero it would be possible to obtain approximately the whole number of stars in our system. This is a very brief and jejune account of & much more elaborate process by which Dr. Chapman and Mr. Me'otte have derived a formula from which It Is possible to calculate the whole number of stars in our universe. Howerer the root lde of the process is sufficiently Indicated. The result of the investigation may be stated In. .ths-j. woj3A.lAl3.grhapiojsible to say with fome probability that h-r-lf the total num ber of stars are brighter than the 23d or 24th magnitude, and that the total numbr of stars 13 cot less than one thousand millions, and can not much exceed twice this amount." A star of the 33d or 24th magnitude I? Just within the photographic range, with many hours exposure of the plate, of the giant 60 inch reflector on Mount Wilson. In an trticle la Nature, Dr. Chapman remarks that the ttal number of stars is comparable with the popu lation of the earth, which is approximately rvJ. mated to be about sixteen hundred millions. Accordingly there is one star in the heavcni fdr each inhabitant of the earth. In a subsequent inTestigation Dr. Chapman Investigated the total light of all the stars ia the heavens, and came to the conclusion that they would approximately give In their totality as much light as 700 first magnitude etars, . jca as Aldebaran, or a Aquilae. The light of tha full moon would be about a hundred times hi bright as the light of all the stare combined. It Is a curious coincidence that Lord Kelrin 1 estimate as to the total maei of all the start in terms of the sun's mass should tally with th total number of all the stars in the universe ai derived by Dr. Chapman. It would s then that though there are undoubtedly giant sta- 4 or suns, and dwarf suns, our sun is just th i average sun In the whol? fyctera of th ftra.
