Hon. C. H. Cornell returned
th1 first of the week from Chicago
whore he had been on business ,
and brought a gentleman back
with him to look over his water
power prr position with a view of
developing it for an electric road
between Valentine and Dallas , S.
D. , and possibly other enterprises.
Valentine may take a lead yet as
a manufacturing town. The
abundance of water power here
ought to induce capital to develop
the wonderful resources of our
country and build Valentine up as
a great trade center. Mr. Cornell
has been limping around as the
result of an accident sustained in
alighting from a street car in Chicago
cage just as an automobile came
rushing along , and in his effort to
get out of the way strained the
St. Nicholas Church.

The Storm of March 4th.
It is not usual to answer criti
cisms of the forecasts of the Weath
er Bureau , but the hundreds of
press clippings that have been re
ceived since March 4 , containing ad
verse criticisms of the Bureau seem
to call for this statement from me.
* Forecasts of the Weather Bu
reau are before the public every clay
in the year. In the past about one
prediction out of each ten failed to
be verified , and it may be expected
that jjie same ratio of failure will
he maintained until meteorology
eau be made , what it is not now , an
In the case of the storm that vis
ited Washington on the 4th of
March last , the fact is that the dis
turbance began here on the morn
ing of the 3rd , and was accurately
forecast the day before. The Bu
reau anticipated that the storm cen
ter would pass over the Middle At
lantic States during the night of
the 3rd , and that northwest winds
and falling temperatures would
leave a clear clay for the 4th. The
center passed precisely as forecast ,
the wind shifted and the tempera
ture fell , hut instead of the north
west wind clearing the sky as it
does in nearly all cases , precipita
tion in the form of bnow occurred
and continued for twelve hours af
ter the storm center had passed
eastward. No forecaster could fore
see this. Were we to forecast a fall of
snow following the passage of storm
2enters that moved from the north
west , we would have hundreds of
failures charged against us , instead
af an occasional one , for it is rare
[ bat snow falls in the Middle At
lantic States except with the approach
preach of a storm from the south
west , which causes northeast winds ,
ind it is extremely rare that any
storm m this region that begins
with rain ends with snow of any
2ousiderable amount. On the con
trary , many storms that begin as
> now end a < rain.
The forecast in question was
made by one of the most experi-
3nced forecasters of the Bureau and
was concurred in by all of the fore
casters who were conversant with
ihe conditions , and the same fore
cast would he made today if similar
The forecasters of the U. S.
Weather Bureau are the equal , if
iot the superiors , of any others in
he world , and their predictions of
Tests , cold waves , floods and maine -
ine storms , although subject to
irror in the proportion of about
me to ten , are of such value to the
ndustries of the nation that if one
) f the newspapers that now so free-
y criticise because two unverified
'orecasts for the District of Colum
bia have fallen on inauguration
lay were to omit from its pages the
laily predictions of the weather its
eaclers would compel it to restore
, hein , and if the. Department or
Congress were to close a station of
; he Bureau in any part of the
United Slates the property inter
ests would demand its restoration.
Dhis would not be the case if the
lysterical abuse that is now being
ndulgecl in was justified.
