PROF. SEE'S THEORY OF CAUSE AND EFFECT OF EARTH- QUAKES. Kew York, a recent number of the "Proceedings of the American Philosophical Society at Prof. T. J. J. See, U. S.N., submitted an important paper on the theory of earthquakes and mountain formation, as illustrated by processes now at work in the depths of the sea. The substance of Dr. See's theory is now .recalled in connection with the great earthquake disaster in 'southern-Italy. This new work verifies and proves the theory "recently advanced by Pro! See that mountains are formed 'by the sea and not at- all by the secu- cooling' and ihrinkjage of the earth. The old theory, which compar- es tho earth to a withered re- ceives a hard blow which it cannot long survive. In two previous papers which 'have been widely read all over the world, Prof. See showed that six great clas- ses of earth- quakes, volcanoes, mountain forma- tion; the formation of islands and plateaus, seismic waves following great- earthquakes, and the feeble at- traction of .'mountains long noticed Feathers Feather Boas Clean and Curled by an Expert Mrs Douglas Westmin- ster Road North Ward Facing the Laie and'j niade, and on the following day or- that he 'pay the salary due; that the complainant was en- Shipping Cannot Facilities be beaten where any- Ring Up -Wiien. you -want f DRAYING "Done promptly and satisfactorily -f JOHN BRODIE: Teent. in the steel schedule would aot titled to his January salary for being j "affect the manufacturers. j dropped from his position .'-without having received thirty days no- lice, as stipulated in the la-w. Manager John Shirts, of the Opera House, entered into a heated argu-, ment with Manager V. S.

Mr. Shirts''said this morning that Manager Kidd flatly refused to fur- nish lights for ail shows that came along.

Mr. Shirts further stated that he would cut oft connec- tion with the company, and again use his gasoline lights, as they gave by far the best satisfaction.

This forms steam beneath the earth's crust, which brings on earthquakes, the earthquakes uplift islands in the sea and mountains along the shore by the expansion of lava under the iand. When the earth's crust is thus uplifted along the seashore ular cooling. If this is true, all ihe old books on geology will have to be rewritten. He discusses also a mountain range now forming in the sea between Samoa and "New Zealand.

The first meeting this'year of the gymnasium, class of the Young Men's Club was held in the Methodist Church basement Tuesday evening, when a large number of young fellows turned out for practice and fun; It is surprising how much good can be accomplished by this means, for'not only is a class of this kind :an ex- cellent opportunity for exercise and physical development, but it affords unparalleled opportunities for a clos- er knowledge of one's fellows. To the young man who feels that .he. can- not get to know people in the small circle in which he lives, class, I conducted under the auspices of the Y. M. Club, should prove an inesti- mable boon. A healthy body is productive of a pure min.d, and a pure mind is never separated from a true and no- ble character, and ;for that reason every young, man who is endeavoring live a clean life, striving1 after the attainment of greater things in. the realm of ambition, cannot do better than start right in and take a term of physical culture. Mr. Maxwell- is an exceUent in- structor and enthusiastic teacher, who really has a good time -with the boys, being, in fact, one of the boys himself. He is an experienced man, having had charge of the Y.M.C.A. gymnasium at Duluth, and for that reason no indiscriminate feats are expected of those who are untrain-J h ed, his endeavor being .to develop' not the professional gymnast, but the and brain.

The expulsion of lava from under the sea undermin- es trenches in the sea bottom, and the crust gives "way and forms the deeps often noticed near the land. The sinking oi the sea bottom after an earthquake produces the seismic waves that so often follow great earthquakes. In 1399 the coast near Yaktutat Bay, Alaska, was -uplifted by a great- earthquake -for 100 miles and-at the maximum the raise was 47 feet. This shows 'that a vast quantity of lava was -excelled from under the ocean and pushed under the land which was thus upraised. In the .present paper Prof.' See shows conclusively that the Aleutian Islands are merely a branch of the Rocky Mountains still in the ocean- In the deep waters just- south of the Aleutian.--Islands the sea bottom is sinking into a deep trench. It is from to fathoms deep and just paiallel to the islands. At almost every big earthquake in this region some one of the Aleutian [slands is uplifted and sometimes' a new volcano breaks but. On the other hand a seismic sea wave fre- quently .accompanies this movement, the sea bottom to the outh has sunk. The uplift jf the island and the sinking of the ea bottom show that lava is being spelled from under the sea. Prof. See gave maps of the ocean epths near the Aleutian Islands and Iso near the Kurile and Japanese '-lands, and as the earthquakes fol- f jow these .subsidences it- is evident that the cause of these disturbances is everywhere the the expulsion "of lava from under the sea, so that the bottom sinks into a narrow trough. In this way the island -of Japan was raised -from the sea. The hole in the sea bottom just east, of Japan made by the expulsion of lava is called the Tuscarora Deep from our own ship Tuscarora, which first dis- covered the deep trough. We know that the Island of 2uppon came out of there, because if it- were thrown into the'hole "it would about fill it up. In the the Aleutian and Kurile islands, if thrown 'into the adjacent- trenchfs near them would fill up the troughs which now; appear: there. Prof. See calculates that the earth is now expanding from 10 to 100 times more-rapidly-than it is con- tracting under the, influence of sec- the west just like'the Andes on th east.. The mountain' 'chain betwee: Samoa and' New "Zealand is abou miles long, and eventually wil be very high. It is still" below th water, few of the peaks which are raised'above as islands. But in the course of geological ages th western ridge will form "a high range and: then, like the eastern side of the trough "will fold up and form another high ridge" parallel to the' first. Thi is how parallel mountain ranges are formed, and it is all the work of the sea, according to Prof. See. WILL BE A FAILURE Edmonton, Jan. impression is growing in municipal circles that Sie new gas plant recently started in operation at the power house will prove a failure. The situation is a serious one, for, if the apprehensions of the authorities are realized, Edmonton, .in addition to a big 'direct- financial loss, will suffer from a ctefective street car service and inadequate electric lighting, un- til a new steam plant .is installed and this cannot be accomplished until spring at the earliest. COMFORT AND PLEASURE AT THE EUREKA. Although the thermometer contin- ues low it doesn't prevent the theatre- goers from participating h: the en- joyment of each performance" at the Eureka. They know it is a steam- heated and a well equipped theatre, and-anyone can spend a very com- fortable and pleasant-evening at this popular playhouse. There is not only good music, but good singing, dancing and splendid pictures." Com- mencing tonight the clever Bennett Sisters present their Dutch song-and dance specialties. Also the genial black face comedian "Billy" Ward, will change his act tonight. When you stop to think that-" these clever little girls are only 8 and 10 years old; and hold many medals for heir clever dancing, you must- admit they are a rare treat for -the theatregoers of our city.
