At tho World's Fair Astronomical
congrcs, Piof. E. R. Von Oppolzer
read a paper, afterwards published in
Astronomy and Astro Physics, from
which the following paragraphs are
"Withjcfcnnco'to tho constitution
of sun spots our notions aro all clear.
After tho experiments of Young and
Duncr, there can be no doubt that sun
spots are gaseous and of tho same
chemical structuic as tho atmosphere
in which they float, From Kirchefl's
law, also, it follows that these spots are
simply cooled regions in the solar at
Tho existence of storms in the
neighborhood of spots his boed shown
by the spectroscopo, and wo havo, in
deed, no ground left for considering
spots tny thing bit metcrological phe
nomena. Tho explanation of tkcio phenom
ena must be clearly grasped in terms
'of metcrology before wo pass to other
explanations. To look in tho direc
tion of electrical effects, as Schuster
has lately done, appears especially
It is simply a question of solar mot
erology, but here one is treading on
dangerous ground, for as regards the
motcrology of our own atmosphero we
are not agreed as to tho fundamental
prinoiplrs, as witness tho dlioussion
belwcon the adherents on the ono hand
of tho conveotion theory, and on the
othor of tho dynamical theory. This
in spite of tho tremendous accumu
lation of observations,
These statements coming from an
orthodox scientist who is a littlo in
advauoo of his elatm' aro of gnat im
portance to the weather question.
Therein Prof, Von Oppolzer shows
that tho way of progress is blockaded
by a division among motcrologistn as
to tho cause of weather changes, Ono
class holds to tho thoory of a mechani
cal univcrso whieh ho calls tho con
vection theory. It belongs to tho
nebular idea whioh supposos the uni
verse to bo like a clock, wound up by
tho omnipotent hand, axd when it
runs down all things will go into chaos
and death, Following up this idea
these pooplo hold that tho sun is hot
body, radiating its heat into spaco,

aud when itgots eold it will ba dead,
and that our earth, being without
light, will die.
These mctorologists, including our
national weather buroau, hold that
this radiated hoat from our sun warms
our earth, and is the cause of all
weather changes ia our atmssphere.
That is the mechanical or convection
Opposed to that thoory is the dy
namical, which takes oleotrieitj and
magnetism ns tho motivs powers of
the universe, and tho forecs that bring
all our weather changes, make light,
and warm the earth. Of course I ad
vocate the latter, dynamical, theory
and believo that tho weather buroau
of tho United States must experience
a rovolution before it can Buccced.
The difference botweon these theories
ii fully as great as aro the differences
bctweon tho fundamental principles
of political parties.
Tho important point nude by Prof.
Von Oppolzer is, that sun spots are
sun storms, aud aro governed by the
name laws that govern earth storms.
He sees tho grost advantaite ,that
would coma to ub in understanding
sun spots and earth weather changes,
if soiontiflts could agroo ss to the fun
damental laws of nature
At the bottom of jail these difficulties,
lies tho ono Bmpa issue: Wero
the earth and sun ovolved from a com
mon burning mass, or did thoy grow
separately by tho accumulations of
Tho former idea came to us from
tho dark ages, and orthodox scientists
aro throwing nil their energies
athwart tho path of progress by adher
ing to that pagan idea.
Prof. Von Oppolzer refers to Prof.
Schuster, another who is in advanco of
hin'class, and says that tlio latter'
investigations in the direction of
electrical effects is very promising.
Tho people who aro expending $800
OOOJin support of tho woalhor bureau
will bo glad to know that there is some
thing in reach that might promise
them a return for their monoy, but
when they understand that tho inves
tigations of the only member of weath
er bureau who is making this elotri
osl theory a specialty Prof. Frank 11.
Bigelow is to bo discontinued, per
haps Secretary Morton and Cbitf ef
tho Weather IJurcati Harrington may
hear of a few gentle protests.
The people wtll not continuo to lib
erally support the naiienal weather
barcau unless it abandons its doath
and decay ideas of a mechanical
universe, aud tak up the later and
ltfo 'porpctuating electrical theory,
therefore Prof. Bigelow, the only ad-
vocato of the latter theory to bo found
about tho Woshingtun weather bureau
headquarters should be retained, and
his txpensc allowances increased.
Our peoplo want live men and live
theories, that premise something to
agriculture, and the extract from Prof.
Von Oppolzer's paper indicates that
tho fifteen and more years doyoted to
tho electrical thoory by Prof. Ticc.
