THE INVESTIGATION OF THE SAN FRANCISCO EARTHQUAKE

[no value]
G. K. GILBERT
IT is the natural and legitimate ambition of a properly constituted geologist to see a glacier, witness an eruption and feel an earthquake. The glacier is always ready, awaiting his visit; the eruption has a course to run, and alacrity only is needed to catch its more important phases; but the earthquake, unheralded and brief, may elude him through his entire lifetime.

DR. L. A. BAUER
THE San Francisco earthquake was one of several large earthquakes recorded the world over since the beginning of this year. The writer’s prime interest in it as a magnetician is in the record it left behind on the magnetographs at various magnetic observatories of the United States Coast and Geodetic Survey.

REMINISCENCES OF YUKON EXPLORATION, 1865-1868

WILLIAM HEALEY BALL
OF the human flood which poured over the Chilkoot crest and inundated the drainage basin of the Yukon in the last years of the nineteenth century, Elizabeth Robins, Joaquin Miller and Jack London have given lurid pictures. The thirst for gold drew miners from every western camp, gamblers from every slum, dreamers from three continents, and human parasites from the whole round world.

FACT AND FABLE IN ANIMAL PSYCHOLOGY
[no value]
[no value]
[no value]
PROFESSOR JOSEPH JASTROW
MAN has ever been ready to show his esteem of animal ways, even to the veneration that in early times took the form of animal worship. The cunning and courage of animals, their passions and endurance, their keenness of sense and mastery of instinct, appealed to the man of nature as enviable qualities.

THE WORLD STATE

C. C. ECKHARDT
IN the last decade certain disconnected movements have accomplished something in the way of bringing about a world state, and other movements are on foot to bring about a completion of this general movement. The Hague Peace Conference (1899) brought about the establishment of a permanent international court of arbitration or the international department of justice; the Interparliamentary Union is trying to effect the establishment of a world parliament or congress, or legislative department, and if possible a world executive department.

THE MEASURE OF ‘PROGRESS’
A man’s character is his fate
[no value]
[no value]
DR. EDWARD S. HOLDEN
NO words are more common in the mouths of orators than the phrases: The march of Progress—the growth of Civilization. When we say that the twentieth century is in advance of the sixteenth, do we mean that it is so in each and every respect? Do we mean that men in general have now a keener feeling for art than in the age of Michel Angelo; a finer knowledge of justice than in the century of Socrates; deeper religious feelings than in the days of Wesley, or of St. Thomas Aquinas?

MAYNARD SHIPLEY
IN his recent report for the Bureau of Immigration, Commissioner-General Sargent again calls attention to the dangers arising from the inadequate immigration laws of the United States. He contends that the time has come when some more effective restrictions must be introduced than those that have so far obtained.

THE STUDY OF THE VARIABLE STARS

PROFESSOR SOLON I. BAILEY
THE ancient philosophers taught that the celestial bodies were ‘incorruptible and eternal,' not subject to change, as are all terrestrial objects. In more recent times the stars were regarded merely as convenient points of reference for the determination of the motions of the planets.

WHEN the American Association for the Advancement of Science decided to hold a special summer session between the winter meetings in New Orleans and New York City, it was well advised in choosing Ithaca as the place. There is probably no other university in the world with such a beautiful site and surroundings, and there are but few institutions whose buildings, equipment and work are of greater interest to students of science.
