ECLIPSE OF OLD SOL CAUSES EXCITEMENT
SELKIRK. Man., Aug. SO—The eclipse of the sun was Observed here at sunrise by nearly the entire pop- ! elation. Small telescopes, opera glasses ard plain smoked glasses < were in great demand and those who had prepared themselves for the event by laying In a stock of field find OpSIU glasses did a rushing busi ness during the brief time during which the eclipse COUld lie observed here. The athmospherlc conditions wer, fairly satisfactory, but the fact that the sun was close to the horizon line when the obscuration began and was veiled to some extent by the moisture suspended in the lower Irata of the air made the observations here of little value for scientific pur- >oc r .«. Xo satisfactory photographs tould be taken. CAPE ST. LOUIS, Labrador, Aug. lo. —Successful observations of the eclipse of the sun were made this morning by the scientists of the va rious expeditions sent to Labrador for this occasion. Although detailed ' reports are still lacking, it is safe to say that highly valuable material. Including ocular observations of the various phases of the total eclipse, photographs and spectrographs of the corona, etc., has been collected by the scientists scattered over a lim ited area of the eastern coast of Labrador. I The most important astronomical expedition stationed in this region for the purpose of observing the eclipse was that sent out by the Lick observatory of California. It was headed by Dr. Heber Curtis and Professor Joel Btebblns, who were assisted by a large force of compe tent and experienced scientists. The expedition had established its sta- PAPAL NOBLE MUST NOW CHOOSE BETWEEN HIS CHURCH AND BRIDE Decree of the Pope Declaring Void His Mariage to an American Girl Crushes High Hopes Held for Four Years—Former Mrs. Parkhurst's Marriage and Di vorce Decided to Have Been Valid. Special Correspondence to Thn Pr* SB, I ROME, Aug. 30.—After four years; »f effort to secure papal validation of the ceremony, the marriage of] Prince Joseph Roaplglioai and his' American bride has been declared mill and void by decree of pope Pius X. This mfanp that the church of Rome, because she is a divorced woman, does not recognise the prinre and his beautiful wife as married. It not only is a crushing disappoint* ment to the princess, w h,, was for- Bterly Mrs. Frederic H. Parkhurst Pf Hangor, Me., but is decidedly em barrassing to Fiinoe RosplgllOsi, Who now practically has to choose be tween his wife, whom he loves de votedly, and the Roman Catholic Church, with which his family has been identified for centuries. His brother, Prince Camillo Ros plgllosi, is commandant of the papal noble guard und the family belongs to the papal nobility. The effect will be watched with breathless interest, not alone In Italy, where tiie full im port of the decree amounts to so. lal ruin, but In Europe generally and in America, where the princess ia social ly prominent. Prlncesa Rosplgllosl Is S grand daughter of Samuel Chester Rold, mho commanded the American prlva- teer Oeneral Armstrong in the battle • t Fayal In the war of 1812. She la descended on her mother's side from the pioneer Rowan family of Kentucky. As Miss Maria Jennings Reid, 14 years ago, she married Col onel Frederic H. Parkhurst of ltan gor, Me., at Washington.

So far as it is j possible to judge the atmospheric conditions were favorable at that stn tlon, but the positive results of the Observations will not be definitely know. - , for some time, as no effort will be made to develop the plates while the expedition is In camp. One of the most Important tasks which this expedition had under- j taken was the red!scnver> of the in tramercurial planet Vulcan, the ex- Istence of Which Is still doubted by j many astronomers. In the early part of the 'Tos Le Verrler. a French as- | | tronomer, expressed the opinion that 1 SHOWING THE LOCALITIES WHERE TODAY'S ECLIPSE TS VISIBLE. there must he a planet between Mer cury and the sun, as that was the only satisfactory explanation of cer tain peculiarities in the movements Of the planet Mercury. At first his 'theory found few adherents. During j the eclipse of IsTis tw.o American ob servers, Professor Watson of Ann j Arbor, in Colorado, and Dr Swift of Rochester, in Wyoming, observed j what they believed to be several small | intermercurial planets, but their ' claims were discredited by astrono* , mers in general. Since then careful search for tho planet, Which was named Vulcan, was made by astrono mers In all parts of the world, but Iso far without success. The prox imity of the planet to the SUII made It practically Impossible to see it : even with the most powerful instru ments, so long as the luminous disk of the sun was not obscured, When ever there was a tidal eclipse of tho sun it was hoped that some ob server would be fortunate enough to discover or rediscover the elusive planet, but the hape was never re I she succeeded in securing a dispen- I Sation from Rome through the late I Archbishop Chapelle, who was then I rector of St. Matthew's church, | Washington, who performed the cere , muny. The appeal for recognition of i her later marriage was based upon I the claim that the l'arkhurst mar riage was void in the eyes of the church and that therefore her divorce from him wan superfluous. It develops that the records of St. Matthew's church show that tier mar rlagc to Colonel Parkhurst was allow ed under a dispensation "in des peritate cultus," and tills has decided the pope In ills opinion that the Purkhurat marriage was valid und alined. No reports have arrived from j the various expeditions scattered j along tiie Labrador coast to the pres- ' . ent time which would vouchsafe the j statement that Vulcan has been ob- i served, but it Is possible that some Of the more distant expeditions, far I fr..m any point with telegraphic com munication, have been more fortunate in that respect than the Cartwright j expedition. There are about 10 or 12 expeditions from the I'nlted States and Canada Stationed along the coast '■ of Labrador, One of them is In | charge of the scientists from the j United States Naval observatory in; Washington, another is composed of I | several professional astronomers and I 1 amateur observers from Hartford, I Conn. Another party, headed by W. F. King, chief astronomer of the Ca nadian government. The approach of the obscuration presented a wonderful and Imposing spectacle. From a high elevation the shadow of the moon could be seen rushing over the surface of the earth like an enormous thundercloud with a terrific velocity, approaching 11500 mibs an hour. The complete ob scuration lasted about three minutes and 50 seconds. BURGOS, Spain, Aug. 30.—The to tal eclipse of the sun was observed about noon today with excellent suc cess and under the most favorable conditions by an expedition headed by Miss Mary Proctor of Brooklyn, N. V., daughter of the famous llrltish astronomer. It. A. Proctor. MADRID, Aug. an.—Reports from Valencia, Burgos, Saragossa and other points at which observations of the total eclipse were taken by parties of scientists from all parts that, therefore, the divorce following it was a fact, and that Prince Ros plgliOßl'S marriage has been with a divorced person and therefore not to be recognized hy the church. It had been Mrs. Parkhurt's con tention that the dispensation grant ed for her marriage to Parkhurst was technically not the dispensation required In that case, she alleging that he was an unbaptized person and that the church permitted the marriage without being aware of this. However, the records me pronounced to fully cover this alleged condition. Thereby the church also exonerates Archbishop Chapelle of having com mitted an Inadvertent error. Prince Rospigllosl met the divorced the princess Roariauosi. Mrs. Parkhurst at Bar Harbor, Me. After an ardent courtship they went to Home, and were married there on August 26, 1901, tn spite of disap proval by the church authorities, tlie prince being determined to wed her.
