Uranddanahter of Mr. Roaevtater
Telia flranhleally at Trio from
Tarla to Interesting
Italian ( Itlea.
Letters received from Hon. Edward
Rosewater and members of his party at
Rome tell- of an enjoyable trip from Paris
to the Eternal City. Mr. Roaewater first
received news of the death of General
Thayer In the telegraphic reports of the
Paris-New York Herald and of the death
of Mayor Moores In copies of The Bee re
ceived at Rome. Ho writes that the open
ing of the World' Postal Congress, which
he Is attending as a delegate from the
t'nlted States, took the form of a spectacu
lar reception at the capital by the king
and queen, followed the same evening by
a banquet given by the minister of posts
and telegraphs. The first formal session
took place In the Colonna palace, as al
ready described in the press dispatches.
He writes further, that his time has been
taken up largely with formal and Informal
Visit and presentations between the dele
gates from different countries. Amontr
the first oi hla surprises was to meet his
friend ArchblBhop Ireland, who offered his
assistance In arranging for an audience
with the pope. Mr. Rosewater, however,
deferred taking advantage of the offer un
til after Easter because preaaure for pre
sentation to the pope wss so great at that
Opening; Session Described.
Mrs. A. D. Brandels of Omaha, who Is
In the party, in a letter to her husband,
describe the first session of the postal
congress as follows: "This Is the opening
day and we have Just returned from the
session. There were very few ladle pres-eht-rperhaps
twenty-five in all. The meet
ing took place in a long, narrow hall or
gallery of the Colonna palace. About 150
men were there, all In full evening dreaa
so we could not distinguish what country
they hailed from until the roll call was
given. The delegates sat on benches be
fore desks, on which their names were
printed, the ladles at the rear end of the
gallery. I sat next to Mrs, Dornn of the
English delegation. The proceedings were
in French and owing to our being so far
In the rear we could not comprehend the
speeches, but got the sense of the meet
ing. . "Mr. Rosewater and Captain Brooks were
placed well forward. The Italian minister.
wnose nam I do not know, invited us
after the adjournment of the session Into
another smaller gallery, where tea, wine,
sandwlchea and cakes were served, waiting
upon us himself. He Inquired of our homes
and w tried to explain Nebraska to him.
but the only place he knew of was Wash
ington. The gallery is a very fine one,
full of pictures and sculptures and Is open
to the public twice a week."
Beautiful J Ire Dirty Genoa.
Another letter from Mr. Rosewater's
lS-year-old granddaughter. Nellie Elgutter,
to her father, describee some of the inci
dents on the trip in a graphic manner:
"After leaving Paris, we went to Nice
There Is not a more beautiful place In
that part of the Riviera. Think of seeing
palms and rubber trees growing as m
pie and cottonwoods do In Omaha. The
olive trees had no olive on them, but the
orange trees were covered with oranges,
The . lemons were thick on the trees, but
were a little green.
"Leaving Nice we went to Genoa.
never In my life saw such a dirty city. Th
dirt was about an Inch thick everywhere.
The only decent-looking people were the
tourists and soldiers. Everybody else looked
as though they had a bath last summer.
We saw Columbus' birthplace. . I don't
blame him for emigrating. The street on
which the house stands is about 9 feet wide.
The house Is about as wide as the street
was mighty glad to leave there. We next
went to Pisa. Buffalo Bill's show Is travel
ling over here. The signs are lota of fun
to read. This Is one part of one: 'Jeune
Fllles et Cow-Boys. Did you ever see
suoh a mixture?"
Mr. Rosewater is in the beet of health
and promises to write some letters of his
observations and imprelons for the read
er of The Bee.

SCIENCE OF EARTHQUAKES
Causes Are Pointed put and Discussed hj
Father ttisesi Creiehton.
ONE THING SURE, PREDICTION IMPOSSIBLE1
Host t'ommoat Cause Is Sodden Mak
ing; of the Surface on Arroint
of Contraction of the
Father AVIlllam V. Rlgge. B. J., of Creigh-
ton university, one of the prominent scien
tists of the went, and once an associate at
Georgetown college of Father Hagln, re
cently called by the pope to Rome to be
director of the Vatican observatory, had
this to say yesterday upon the Son Fran
'Earthquakes may be due to various
causes. Tho most common one Is believed
to be the sudden sinking of the surface on
account of the contraction of the earth. The
earth Is continually losing heat, and must
therefore contract in volume. The surface
then becomes too large In proportion, like
the skin of a shrivelled apple .from which
the Interior has contracted. In geologic
ages this shrinkage was on a much grander
scale and mountains wefe produced by the
process. As the earth Is made up of very
different materials the shrinkage is always
accompanied by a sinking of one part and
Its rubbing against another. Both these
actions cause tremors or earthquakes.
whose Intensity, of course, must vury con
'Another cause of earthquakes may be
due to the action of subterranean waters
In forming large caves, into which the
overhanging ground must fall sooner or
later. Just as we see on a small scale when
a ditch has been dug and the ground filled
into it again.
Seepage of Water.
"A thjrd cause is owing to the seepage
of the water to the underlying rocks, whoso
high temperature changes the water to
steam and thus generates nn enormous
pressure, which can be relieved only by
volcanoes or earthquakes.
"A fourth cause Is Said to be due to the
water of crystallization, as it is termed,
in the rocks. This water which the rool;
have absorbed when they crystallized is
like that which plaster of parls takes In
when it sets. The tnormous hent doep
down In the earth must Jn tho course of
time expel this water and change It to
steam.. The pressure thus created hi be
lieved to be the moat general cause of
volcanoes and of earthquakes.
"Earthquakes are certainly not caused by
sunspots, and If they were, the difficulty
would only be shifted to the inaccessible
regions of the sun and we would auk
what cauaod the spot to break out on the
sun. Nor has the earthquake at Ban Fran
cisco any connection with the recent erup
tion of Vesuvius, na far as our knowledge
goes at present, although I would not be
so rash as to deny the possibility of such a
"Earthquakes, also, are not caused by the
moon, as far as we know, nor by any force
outsldo of the earth, such as the conjunc
tion of the planets, the favorite theme of
charlatan scientists. Enrthquakes cannot
be predicted, and everyone that ventures
to predict one or claims to have predicted
one may unhcstltatlngly be cissed as a
man craving notoriety at the hands of Ig
Phase of Uarth'a Development.
."Earthquakes are a normal phase in the
earth's development. They occur In all vol
canic regions, but are by no means confined
to them. The western shore of South Amer
ica Is especially subject to them. The In
terior of large continents is seldom visited
by earthquakes, and it is very unlikely
that Omaha will ever suffer from such a
visitation. An additional protection is af
forded our city by the yielding character
of the soil, through which shocks are prop
agated only with difficulty. The tremors
caused by distant earthquakes are, of
course, noticeable in Omaha, but they need
never cause alarm.
"The instruments used in observing and
recording carlh tremors are called seis
mographs. Father Algue's instrument,
exhibited in the Phlllpplie observatory
at i lie worms rair in si. lunula, was a
good model. It consisted of a pendulum
about 200 pounds in weight and ten or
twelve feet long. It was supported by
a strong arch of masonry. When the
ground shakes the inertia of the heavy
pendulum holds Its place, and the ground
actually moves from umW It. A pointer
below tho pendulum truces Its apparent,
motion, that la, the real motion of th9
ground, on a piece of paper moved for
ward by clockwork. When this motion Is
greatly magnlnVd by delicate levers the
instrument Is called a ml roaelsniograph.
Gur.erally two systems of levers are used.
In order to record the Motion of the
ground In the meridian and at right
angles thereto. Another . large weight,
supported In horizontal equllbrlum and
making uae of the aame principle of
inertia, regiatera the vertical motion of
the ground. The three components thus
obtained must be recompoaed In order to
find the actual motion In space. Tho
time is indicated by the motion of the
paper. Sometimes the beginning of the
tremor is recorded by an instrument re
sembling a tak hammer which has a
fine point resting upon a nail; the slight
eat motion In any direction dislodges Fhu
hainmer, marks the time and sets the
other seismographs in motion, when, as
may be desirable, a naedless amount of
paper is not continually being run
through the machine.
