THE EQUINOCTIAL STORM.
Editor of The Tribune:
Sir: Under the above heading in a re
cent issue of the Sunday Free Press, the
astronomer of that paper favored the com
munity with the following information:
"The equinox is the time when the sun
crosses tne equator, and when the days
and nights are of equal length. There are
two equinoxes in cue course of the year,
the first occurring when the snn enters
the fir .it point of Aries, about March 31,
and is called the vernal equinox; the sec
ond occurs when the sun euters the first
point of Silva, about Sept. 23, and is called
the autumnal equinox. The equality as to
the length of days and nights is the same
In all parts of the globe."
It is a surprise to me that any one tak
ing upon himself the responsibility of im
parting astronomical knowledge to the
people should fall into the old rut, and
quoting the old stereotyped error, "that
day and nigbt are equal in length in all
parts of the globe." Nothing could be
more fnrtber from the truth than the
above statement, for there is not a point of
latitude on the face of the earth where day
and night are actually of equal length. It
19 trne that they are equal on the equator,
and when we have said that we have said
all there is to be said on the equality of
day and night. North and south of the
equator day and night vary in length.
True, the difference is not much for many
degrees eacn side of the equator, but when
we reacb;either pole we fiud that the night
has entirely vanished and day is twenty
four hours long. Does that seem much like
equality in day and night in all parts of
the globe? We think not. On the dates
mentioned, or the two equinoxes, the sun
throws its rays equally on botu p oles, and
from this equality some pcoplo have
tumbled into the conclusion that day and
night are equal the globe over.
On the vernal equinox, 81st of March,
the snn is rising for the north pole and is
setting for the south pole, and while doing
this it it visible to both poles as a fiery
steed making a complete circle along their
respective horizons. On the autumnal
equinox the grand spectacle is repeated,
with this difference, that the sun is then
rising for the south pole and setting for
the north pole. On both equinoxes several
equalities occnr that do not at any other
time of the year. First, day and nigbt are
equal on the equator, and there only.
Second, the earth is divided into two equal
parts, hence the third equality, the sun
throws its rays equally on both poles.
Fourth, day and nignt at any given point
north latitude are the same length as at
the same point south latitude. For in
stance, if the day is fifteen hours long and
the night nine hours at seventy-five de
grees north latitude, they are respectively
the same length at seventy-five degrees
The very fact that if the cause of day
and night being equal on the equator, de
mands that the day should be at each pole
twenty-four hours long, and the night
nothing. That fact is this; the rays of
the snn striking the earth at right angles
to its axiis it follows that from any given
point on the equator the riBiug and setting
of the inn is just ninety degrees distant.
The earth is thns divided luto two equal
parts; 180 degrees of the sun, and 180 de
grees oi no sun, consequently day and
night are equal on the equator; but In the
rase of either pole this fact gives a very
different result. If a man on the equator
can see the snn traversing 180 degrees, or
half the circle: or, in other words, see the
sun ninety degrees away; it Is not too
.much to expect that a man standing on
either pole conld dp the same thing, and
inasmuch as the sun at any point on the
equator is only ninety degrees from the
pole, it follows that a man standing there
could see the sun traversing the entire cir
cle, or SCO degrees. While from the nature
of things day and night are equal on the
equator at either pole and from the very
same cause there eould be no greater dif
ference between tbeiu; i. e., the night is
completely annihilated, and day reigns
supreme. - XiiBN P. Daviks.

CITY MARKET IN VIEW
Tribune reporter's Interesting Interview
vltb John E. Rocha. '
SUBJECT FULLY DISCUSSED
The Present Huckster System Be
lieved to Be a Menace to Health
and Not' in Keeping with the Pro
gression of the City A Modern
Market Centrally Located Would
Benefit All Classes, Relieve Con
gested Streets and Possess Many
In view of the expressed sentimeut
of citizens generally for a public and
modern market in keeping with the
growth and progression of the city, a
Tribune reporter yesterday aorubt au
interview with John E. Roche on the
Mr. Roche is always fully alive to
movements that shall redound to the
Leuefit of the city, nud bis views aro
Interesting and instructive, lie bns
given the matter research anil investi
gation, ia a member of the special
market place committee of select coun
cil, which will ut the proper time pre
sent in council uu ordinance covering
the m ittcr. When asked to define (he
present position of the faruiir or
hucksten, Mr. Hocheiaid:
"A study of existing conditions is
necessary to hu intelligent considera
tion of the question. Today the fnriner
enters onr eity with bis load of pro
duce and hucksters it from home to
home. That portion of the city which
they know by experience to be the best
for prices and sulee is first visited and
the result is that here there is a glut,
iu other parts a famine. I speak more
particularly of the articles sold daring
the summer and generally prepared
for dinner, but it is tqnally true of al
most everything they sell and at all
times of the year. In October and
November there will be fnuud at
poiuls where farmers enter the city
men and women seated on the ourb
stone for hours waiting for a load of
aabbage, potato, turnips, boef, pork,
eta. , ami tblu is continued day after
day until their wants are supplied."
DANGER OF FltliSENT SYSTEM.
"Do you believe that goods huck
stered in the poorer sections of the
city lire fresh or inspected?" asked the
"Veal, runt ton, beef, pnrk, poultry
and other similar products of the farm
are carted about and offered for sale,
and it is not known that they Are fit
for food. It is impossible for tbe food
inspector to examine every load. In
the snmmer season fifty inspectors
eould not do it. He will tell you that
'bob' veal, 'bull' beef, undrawn poul
try 'fair outside but foul within' and
much other unwholesome stuff is of
fered for sale almost every day. 'Light'
weights and 'short' measures are not
uncommon. Any retail grocer in tho
city will tell you that it pays to weigh
and measure when buying from fartn
ers. After stating that bnyers and sellers
would be benefitted by a market, Mr.
''It is scarcely necessary to spenk of
the congested condition of Lower Lick
awanna avenue, or the odorous oorner
Of Lackawanna and Penn. These places
speak for themselves. If we have a
market place tbe farmer aud the buyer
will bavo a place to meet and any per
son wanting fur in products can find
all there is for sale in the city by vis
iting tbe market. If any articles not
fit for food are brought iu tho food in
spector can ascertain that fact without
difficulty and prevent their sale. If
weights are light and inensures short
the bnyer will be protected by the
"Lower Lickawanna aventij will be
greatly relieved, the corner of L tckn
wanna, and Penn avenoes and other
points will be cleaner, and wholesome
food, full weights and measures, cleaner
streets, the removal of foul odors, less
garbage, improved sanitary conditions,
better health, more business, better
business, and greater city revenues will
follow as a matter of courae."
When asked to define the nec-ssary
legal steps for securing a murket and
the status of tbe matter in select
council's special oommittee, Mr. Roche
"To frame an ordinance to meet our
requirements is a very difficult matter.
I have given the subject much
thought, gathered together all the data
that I could find, and am not yet satis
fied with my work. I purpose calling
a meeting of tbe committee soon, and
will at the same time invite the pres
ence of persons interested for the pur
pose of getting any ideas they miy
bave to olfer, i uope it will be woll at
tended, and that all who attend will
give their views upon the subject.
THE MARKET PICTUltED.
"The ordinance provides that tho
place shall be central, equipped
with such building, stalls, stands aud
fixtures as are necessary ; that a license
fee shall be charged; that stalls, stands
and spaces may be rented by our own
citizens as well as fannejs; that arti
cles of food shall be inspected before
being exposed for sale; that it shall be
a people's market until lOo'clook, from
10 to 12 the merchants may buy, and if
anything U loft over it may be huck
stered throughout the city. Penalties
are imposed for violating its provisions,
tbe oflioe of market clerk is created,
his duties defined, salary fixed, dates ot
settlement with eity treasurer for re
oeipts named, etc.
"I lived nt IJnrrisbnrg, a morkat
town, in 1883. and know that house
keepers went to market as early as 5
o'clock a m. Merchants at the same
time opened their stores and the buy
ing for the day'was done at this early
hour, I have a neighbor, a former
resident of Buffalo, where markets are
numerous and the word piotures alio
draws of golden butter, fresh eggs, big
pumpkins, squash, apples, plums,
grapes, flowers and all the other
products of the farm and garden
in the market at 5 o'clock in the
morning is very pleasing, and she pines
now for the delights ot marketing at
this early hour. I think the advan
tages of a clean, well kept market are
so great as orugored with the few dis
advantages that will follow, that it
will soon be a popular and profitable
resort for tbe people of tbe city."
The market place committee will
meet this jsvsning in select coun
cil chambers, and an invitation is ex
tended to all citizens interested to be
SCRANT0N AGAIN HONORED.
