THE SCRANTON - TBIBUNE SATURDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 29, 1894.
Th Baptist denomination has re
esntir soforsd great loss in the deatb
of two of its most prominent anl use
fal men. One was Rav. E. Q. Robin
son, D. D , formerly president of brown
university and reoently leotnrer in
Crozer Theological, seminary. The
other was Rsv. J. C. Long, LL.D.
professor of ohnreh history in Crozer
seminary. In their respective lives of
study, tbese two men bad no superiors
in the denomination, and the Baptist
aonterenees tbronghont the country
are recording their appreciation of trie
worth and work of these men, and
their sense of the lcsi sustained by this
double bereavement. Tbe faculty of
Crozer seminary has unanimonsly
chosen Henry C. Vender, of the New
YorK Examiner, to fill the place of Dr.
Long as lecturer on church' history.
Mr. Vedder is an author of consider
able fame, and has written a "History
of the Baptist Church,' and also "Tbe
Dawn of Christianity.'' He haa mani
fested pre-eminent qualities as a his
torian of sacred history. He is a yonng
man, but his accuracy, impartiality,
good judgment and indefatigable re
search give promise of very efficient
service in future years.
Tbe members of the Green Ridge
Baptist church sympathize with tbetr
pastor. Rev. W. J. Ford, who mourns
the death of his brother, Frank E.
Ford, of Colgate university, Hamilton.
Tbe deceased was in tbe city when
Rev. Ford was married last July, ami
acted tbe part of best man. He was in
his junior year in tbe university, and
was regarded as one of tbe most prom
ising students. He distinguished him
self in athletics and was tbe captain
of the foot ball team and the base ball
team. On Sept 18 inst. be was in
perfect health, but on the following
day be was taken siek very suddoaly
and removed to the hospital. Tbe phy
sicians said that it was necessary to
perform an operation, which took
place Friday, and on the following
Saturday he died. Rv. Mr. Ford was
called to his side Wednesday, S.-pt. 19,
and staid with him to tbe last. tU re

For thfi Saturday Tribune
In this busy world very little atten
tion is given to the science of astrono
my, as it is reirarded as coming within
the particular sphere of tbe astrono
mer, and therefore considered beyond
the reach of ordinary observers. Jvven
mathematical geography, outside of
the schools, seems to attract no public
attention. The people accept tbe
equinoxes and the equinoctial storms
without stopping to make calculations
as to their periodical occurrence, the
quatiou ot time, tue vicissitude or ine
seasons, the sun's declination and tne
various other phenomena connected
with the earth as a planet, ueuerany
peakinjr, there is more attention given
to the religious sphere, eternal salva
tion and the future habitation beyond
the grave, than to tne globe which we
inhabit. Such, of course, is natural,
and belief in the future world, whether
it shall exist on this earth or else
where, seems to be one of the Innate
attributes of the human mind.
But some Importance should be at
tached to a general knowledge of the
earth, such as Ebeu P. Davis has un
dertaken to discuss; for the reason that
the universal laws governing our
planet are worthy of thought and in
vestigation which the globe demands
as our present nbode, the ground of
our existence, and the sense of our
subsistence and life. It is not our pur
pose to assume the role of the Free
Press "astronomer," or to enter the
field of discussion with Davis in order
to detract from his true merit. But it
seems to us that it is due to the people
who might feel interested in such dis
cussions, that the subject should not
bo summarily dn-missed by the J? ree
Press with slight reference to "pri
mary geography." If Mr. Davis is
mistaken iu attempting to wipe out the
"old rut" from the face of the globe.he
should certainly bo corrected, and let
the old rut remain.
AN INTERESTING PILGRIMAGE.
Now. in justice to Mr. Davies, to say
that lie hns gone far beyond the nar
row shallow coast of primary geogra
phy. lie has scaled the lofty summits
and "hills of frost where the rapid
reindeer crossed" he has viewed the
mighty ice belt of the North Polar re
gions, and has gazed with amazing
wonder and admiration upon the
quadrant altitude of the brilliant lord
of the day, as that great luminary
darts his benign rays to animate the
vestiges of liviug matter and organic
existence in the frigid quarters of our
globe, Jiut while Mr. Davies might
not have tieen driven to eccentricities
and epicycles in the course of his trav
els and observations. Yet be might
possibly have been led into the laby
rinth of mistaken ideas. At least we
think so, in one instance which we
Mr. Davis says: "The very fact that
the cause of day and night being equal
on the equator, demands that the day
should be at each pole twenty-four
hours long ana the night nothing."
This assertion gives a wrong impres
sion and should be corrected. Actual
measurement and the concurrent testi
monyand authority of every distin
guished writer on the subject, shows
that Mr. Davis is mistaken. The cor
rect idea is: The day Is twenty four
hours long at the polar circles aud not
at the poles, which are 'S degrees ana
28 minutes away from the polar circles
(mark the dincrence). Then between
the polar circles and the poles the days
are recKonea as niontus, Keeping in
mind the antipodean or alternate
changes of the six months days and
the six months night aud the six cli
mate within the Frigid zones, both
north and south, as marked by the
limitation of the circles of illumination
We are not writing for the express
purpose of correcting Mr. Davis, nor
for the information of person already
familiar with the laws ana conditions
of the earth as a planet. We write for
such as have not familiarized them
selves with such laws and conditions
of the globe. Therefore, we coll atten
tion to the following as a matter of
THE EQUINOXES EXPLAINED.
Thecircloof illumination, just men
tioned, is a great circle, its variation
and location, at different periods of
the year, must be accurately under
stood in order to iret a clear concention
of the subject matter which Mr. Davis
bus undertaken to djtscuss and which
the Free Press limits to, the child's
knowledge of geography. That great
circle divides the day from the night,
and as all great; circles bisect each
other, the circle of illumination, in
every location of the earth and in ev
ery situation in its orbit, divides tne
equator into two equal parts. And
this is the reason why the day and the
night are always equal at the equator
during tne whole year.
On March 21, at the vernal equinox,
and on Sept. 22, at the autumnal equi
nox, the axis ot the earth is, not in
clined to nor declined from the sun.
There, the celestial equator and the
terrestrial equator coincide or corre
spond, ana in this position ana situa
tion of the earth, the circle ot lllumi

the earth into two equal parts, giving

all over the world. When we say say
that the celestial and terrestrial equa
tors coincide or correspond, we don't
mean to convey a dual idea, as the ter
restrial equator is simply a point or
part oi the celestial equator, reached
by the earth at the equinoxes. At
every other portion of the year the
earth s path or orbit is in tne ecliptic.
TUB SITUATION SUMMARIZED.
To these explauatious we add tbe
First. On any other days or month
of the year, when the suu is north of
the equator, in our latitude, the length
of the day and the night corresponds
to the sun's declination. The sume is
true when the sun is south of the
equator; the length of days and nights
depends on the sun's declination.
(Second. The sun is north of the
equator from the vernal to the autum
nal equinox, and south of the equator
until the 21st of March again.
Third. While the circle of illumina
tion, at any period of the year, bisects
the earth into two equal parts, yet its
location as to the sun's declination de
termines the length of days and nights
and the vicissitude of the seasons in
the temperate zones.
Fourth. On the 22d of June the sun's
declination is 23 degrees 28 minutes
north, and then shines beyond tho
north pole, giving the long polar day
and night alternately at the south
f ilth The sun appears above tue
horizon In the Arctic regions from
March 21 until Sept. 22. when the
dawn of the south polar begins, the sun
ascending above the horizon until
Dec 21,when it is midday at the south
pole, and midnight at the north pole
where it continues without the rays of
the sun until March 21. Man can only
conjecture the appearunce of the sun
in the polar regions as he majestically
seems to move horizontally in his
course around the sky. But he does
not reign supreme aud annihilate the
niirht. for she follows him iu his an-
pareutcourse disputing every inch of
territory ana casting ner manue over
one-halt or the globe. Ana noiwiut
standing the precession of the equinoxs,
they will staua tor many generations
aa there is no probable uunger or tneir
immediate extinction or abatement of
the equinoctial storms.
THE EQUINOCTIAL STORM.
Editor of Tns Tribcni.
Sir: Referring to an article nnder the
above title wbicb appeared m last wedueS'
dnv's Tribune in answer to an article un
der a similar title which had appeared in
tne rree rress. Last t-unday's Mens
after an unworthy insinuation as to our
motive spoke as follow: "iuis paper
made no assertion that tbe days aud nights
are eaual all over the globe on Sept. -1
Any school Doy wno nas studied primary
geography knows better, and we did not
consider it necessary to specify where the
days and nights were ot equal lengtb on
tbat day, we assumed our readers knew
that without being told."
It is true that tbe correspondent did not
say that days and nights were equal on
Sept. 21, but be did say that they wero
equul all over tbe globe on Sept. '-3; at
least, we presume tbat be intended to say
wben be suoKe oi tue equinox as "ine
time when days and nignts are of equal
lengtb." and wben "Tne equality as to tne
lengtb of days and nights is tbe same in
all parts of tbe globe." I respectfully ask
tbe readers ot TUE TRIOUNC wbetber tney
would, from tbe above quotations, come
to any conclusion other than that he in
tended to say that day nnd night were
equal in all parts of the globe. But we are
persuaded now tbat ne meant only ise
what he succeeded to Say, namely, "Tbat
tbe equinox is the time when equality is
eqnality in all parts of the globe." Stripped
ot its ambiguity, the bare sentence would
read that: rue equinox is tne time wnen
equality is the same in all parts of the
globe." What a piece or information l
Little did we think that it was necessary
to Inform even the Bmall boy who is not
old enough to be a "school boy" of the
fact; so we took it lor granted that the
writer was still speaking of the equality of
dav and night: but It seems that ho bad
suddenly left tbat subject, and bad under
taken tbe arduous task of informing bis
readers "tbat equality is equality on the
datts mentioned in all parts of the
globe." Having "assumed that bis read
ers knew without being tola wnere day
and night are at equal length'" he would
do them no injustice to assume also that
they kuew "without being told" that
equality means the same thing at all times,
and in ail parts oc tne globe.

OBSERVANCE AND HON
SERVANCE OF DAYS.
Editor of The Tnini'Nt:
Sir: It is beld by high ecclesiastical and
civil authority that no laws should be
panned regulating the observauce of day.
It is claimed that in themselves all days
are alike. Any one is just as good as an
other so far as the inherent worth is con
cerned. This is most cheerfully conceded
but no day stands or falls wholly npon its
own lutrluklo worth, social and political
and religious wants may and do invest
days with a certaiu moral value. Iutriu
sically Sunday may be worth no more tUnn
Friday: but no muu dare say tbat the two
days have the same moral effeot upon the
nation and the race. Keligious custom
bas so inwrought certain ordinances and
teachings of the fibre of tbe tlrst day of
the week, Lord's day or Sunday, tbat the
non-observauce ol the day by the nation
Involves the corrnption and overthrow ot
the fountains of national morality. No
nation can exist without morality.
Virine and intelligence do not spring
Into existence without an adequate cause.
There may be regular systematic teaching
to supply tbe moral qualities essential to
the existence ot the republic. Suppose
that tbe Lord s day should cease to D t ob
served. Lot a universal desecration of tbo
day reign throughout the nation. Then
from what source would be derived our
moral growth? Can we look to state or
municipal government for moral pabulum
necessary to keep the body polttie sound
No; for from year to year a secularism, iu
some cnsi'S approaching ntuoism, bas ex
eluded God and His word wholly from the
realm of civilizod education, bnall we
look to tbe daily newspapers? No, for

qnisite to preserve peace aud order; but to
parade to tne vicious taste tuut oemnuus
a sensational paper, niled wun escapades,
divorces, seductions, murders ana what'
ever makes for moral ruin.
Shall we rely upon the political rostrum
to sunulv moral backbone? No. lor roliti

uiuklng their own calling and election
sure to sork moral reforms. Shall we look
to great railway corporations working for
the highest material and uiornl good c
their employes to assert and secure th
need of morality for citizenship? N, for,
as a rule, great corporations know and
seek solely their owu wealth. If moral

from tbe secularized public school system,
nor from the political rostrum or Dress,
The moral health of the natiou will bo so'

Hence, the people wbo constitute our

than two millions ot people are shut ou

compels conductors, flagmen, brakemeo,
expressmen, postmen,' telegraphmen and
newspapermen to minister to necessary
wants. No civil or religious law forces
these men from the good which w loeated

nnd sustained by buudny education.
Either abandon your position or your

is the issue. The sreat mass of men ad

It may be objected that "religion Is

that tbe state in legislating against tbem

encroach upon the domain of religion.
Moral law and civil law do, in pare, coin

PROFESSOR DAVIES DEFENDED.
Editor of tub Tribune:
Sir: Would you please allow me a
small space in your valuable paper to
prove to fit. Carter tbe ability ot 1. J
Davies as a teacher and composer? '.
will quote a few lines whicii appeared
in the Musical News of Ran iin. u pu-
tier which is nnblisbed in the interest of
musicians and edited by snoh a learned
gentleman as Stock Hammond, Mas,
Doc, of Beadinz:
Tho "Radiant Morn." composed by T. J,
Davis (Muu. Bsc), of Scranton, is a beau
tiful composition particularly well adapted
for nuartutte choir. Thero is a fund of
pure melody in all this yonng writer's
clever efforts and bis past writing is ex
cellent. Mr. Dans is a resideut of Scran
ton and that citv should be proud to
itossess a composer and teacher of such
nromluepco. Mr. Gwilym Amos, of
Wilkea-Barre: lira. Balckman and Mr,
Lewys Watcyn, of Scranton, have passed
the first examination lor oacneior in
muslo at Trimly university, Toronto,
Canada. Messrs. Amos and Watcyn passe l
first class. This miiUos twenty candidates
that have succeeded iu Trinity university
who have beeu prepared by T. J. Davies,
(Mus. Bacl. It is no wonder that Mr,
Davies is conceded to be one of the most
successful aud scholarly teachers iu PoiiU'
svlvania. A clauce through bis much ad'
mired compositions never fails to interest
the fancies of the modern musician.
Mr. Carter, your superior, has judged
M . Davies and finds in mm. a taleuied
mjslciau, and now we take no heed
to your newspaper pulls in trying to
lower your superior. A good tree produces
good fruit. Among Mr. Davis' pupils are
such eminent musicians as J. Hadyn
Morrs, mus. bac. organist of the Calvary
chnrch. New lork: Professor Harry Jones
the well known and educated basso in
I'hiladelnhia. and W. Rhys Herbert, mus,
bac. of llazletun. Is that not sufficient
frnit to prove Mr. Davies' ability? Mr.
Carter, heed what Schumann Bays, "Seek
anion z voar associates those who know
more than you." Thaukiug you for your
space, I remain very truly
