PLANETARY CONJUNCTION
Still Subject Of Much Town
Talk—Further Reflections
j
1 WORST IS YET TO COME
That the planetary conjunction i.-
’ still uppermost in the minds of some
(if the people, is evidenced by the con-1
' .vernation and ‘after reflections” heard:
l on all sides.
"Well,” said Dr. Garner, coming into
the Capital Office this morning, "we
don’t seem to have suffered much
da mare from the planetary eonjunc-1
lion. Hut we rliould give heed to the
I old proverb, not to cry before we are
out of the woods. It depends upon
the nature of the harm, as to whether
it would happen immediately or
I several months hence. If tbe earth
lis to be pulled out of its orbit by the 1
'combined attraction of the other plan
ets. ir. would be some time before it
would be far enough out of its regu- 1
J lar orbital course for us to experi
ence any inconvenience in the way of
temperature, which would come from 1
our being further away from the sun. ;
About a week ago. when extremely ■
low temperature prevailed on the Pa- 1
!eifie coast, a philosopher out there '
predicted that it was the beginning j
of what was surely going to happen '
in the same line.” j*
"The good man seems not to have 1
considered the situation properly. :
While the combined attraction of '
Mars, Jupiter. Saturn and Neptune
might affect the orbital position of
the earth, we must not forget that!]
Mercury and Venus are between the
earth and sun. and Uranus is on the
opposite side of the sun. These three
planets and the sun are all pulling ini
the contrary direction. This combin
ed force will be more than v
enough to counterbalance the attrac
tive energy of the other planets in;
conjunction and keep the earth in its
regular orbit.
"There is another possible way of j
j bringing about a lowering of the tern- 1
perature in our latitude. The poles
of the earth are now inclined twenty
three and one half degrees to tlie *
plane of its orbit. This position of,
‘the poles causes our seasons. It is s
just possible that the gravitational 1
forces, now influencing the earth. 1
might pull the poles over, making
them coincide with the plane of its
orbit, and causing her to expose more ‘
of her antarctic regions to tha heat *
of the sun. and bringing the artic ‘
cold nearer to the equator, being of *

AGAIN LACKS QUORUM
10 TRANSACT BUSINESS
The City (’barter Commotion, com
posed of the ten members of the City
Council and ten citizens, appears to be
unable to get off to a good start, tor
again last nigbt there was not a
quorum present, end therefore busi
ness could not be proceeded with.
It had been hoped that a sufficient
number of members would be on hand,
as it was desired to take up tin* mat
ter of proposed annexation of suburb
an sections to the city, but all told only ;
seven of the representatives assemble?! j
at the Municipal building, and after
waiting until nearly 9 o’clock, all
hands decided to go home. There were
only two members of the Council on
hand. These were Aldermen Russell <
and Smith. Of the citizens commis
sion, Major Hugh K. Riley, St He's At
torney Nicholas H. Green, and Dr
Walton H. Hopkins were there, and in
addition to these. Clinton Shaw,
a delegate in behalf of West (
Annapolis, and Walter Cook, of East
port. Some of the members called the
Council Chamber over the phone and f
inquired whether there was indication j
of a quorum being present, but they t
failed to put In their appearance. Last (
night’s called meeting was the fifth,
and only on one occasion, last Friday, (
has there been a quorum present.

STATE GAME WARDEN
SAYS "FEED THE BIRDS”
IN COLD WEATHER
State Game Warden F. Lee las
Compte yesterday made an earnest
idea for feeding of birds. He said:
"At this time of the year, previous
to severe cold weather or heavy snows,
it is always necessary to call the at
tention of the public to the necessity
ol feeding the birds. A State may do
a great deal in the way of restocking
depleted coveys, but more can be gain
ed by yie saving what we have than
purchasing at great expense large
quantities of birds. It is only neces
sary for farmers and sportsmen and
bird lovers to devote a little time and
a small amount of grain to save many
birds throughout the State of Mary
land. and have large numbers of quail
and other valuable birds. A shelter
provided for them to protect them
from tiie snow or a place scrapped
bare in the snow and feed scattered
thereon will accomplish a great
amount of good, and the Conservation
Commission of .Maryland urgently re
quests all those who are interested to
Ho what they can. if there is any cold
weather or snow during t Tio'Voihing
"months, to save the birds.
The following little verse has been
issued by Miss Gertrude Knevels. sec
retary of the Forest Hill Gardens Au
dubon Society, as a Christmas card. It
is passed on in this manner so that
you will help us to feed the birds:
How big your nest is, neighbor man.
How bountiful your fare.
While small birds in the wind and
snow.
Are starving everywhere.
Some scattered crumbs, a little seed.
A drop of water, too;
And we will sing our gratitude
Rig Brother Man, to you.

COUNTY WINS
DOCTORS’ SUITS
An echo of the John Snowden mur
der trial came along today when the
Circuit Court, with Judges Moss and
Forsythe on the bench, decided the
long pending suits of Drs. J. J. Mur
phy and L. B. Henkel against the
Anne Arundel County for expert wit
ness fees at the Snowden trial at Tow
son.
These suits were first brought be
fore former magistrate James I>. Feld
meyer, who awarded the two Doctors
the full amount claimed, which was
SIOO in each case. The County ap
pealed and the judgment of the Cir
cuit Court, announced today, was the
reversal of the Magistrate’s judgment,
but without prejudice to the claimants
to bring suit over again on different
procedure.
Chief Judge William H. Thomas, of
this Circuit, was here today and sat.
with Judge Forsythe in hearing argu
ment about exceptions to auditor's ac-
I count in the cafe of Emerson-Brant
ingham versus Jewell.
