. Our Continent
lias Been Tilted Up
O. Fredrick Wright In Chicago Record-

. .The level of the ocean is more constant
than that of the land The expanse of
the ocean Is ; three times as great as
that of the land, and Us depth more
than 10 times as great. If all the land
should be sunk In the ocean. It -would
raise the general water level only about
100 feet - In general we may Bay with
perfect confidence that the ocean beds
represent portions of the earth's' crust
which have been sinking from the earli
est, geological limes, wnue tne continents
represent those portions which, -with
many oscillations, have on 'the whole
been rising. It probably Is not ' true,
. . as is often stated, that the areas of land
and water tiave shifted places in past
time,.; so that t continents . were found
and. oceans swept - without . interruption
ovef the continental areas. - Still there is
thefbest of evidence that large, portions
of the existing continents were at vari
ous, times below the level of the sea. v
y'--.-A ' '.'-.y'-.--r .;i;;v
But, 'while" this is true, it seems
equally 'certain that during the. subsi
dence of these areas below the sea level.
they., existed-' either .as shallow water
borders Of , the .main continental areas
tor as internal i' seas. For example, the
great depth ;of sedimentary rocks which
cover the Mississippi basin, ' extending
from the , Allegheny . mountains to the
Rocky mountains, are shallow water de
posits. So shallow, ' indeed, ! was : the
water during long periods that ' it 'was
little more, than a swamp-in which the
vegetation .tha f ornjed . the numerous
seamsof coal could' grow and flourish.
But the level wad not constant. After a
large accumulation of vegetable matter
that could be turned into coal bad taken
place, there was a slight and very gentle
sinking -of the whole area, 'so that mud
and sand . were brought in from the
neighboring higher lands to form a com
plete 'covering for the ooal; so that
when': it was ; turned into rock it was
able to protect it, and preserve it for
future ages.1-This process of slow but
irregular sinking ' of t the Mississippi
basin continued :,until thousands of feet
of. sedimentary ' material . had been
washed Into It, ' the Mississippi ; is
.carrying sediment -into the Oulf of Mex
ico at the present tlme ' These succes
sive strata, like the leaves of a book,
record the various downward movements
of the long coal period. In other coun
tries,, especially in England and China,
there is the same record of long-con-:
tlnued ' downward movements of - con
tinental areas during the .coal period. -
If this downward movement had con
tinued always, the coal would- have been
inaccessible beneath the depths of the
sea, where. Indeed, much- of it does still
remain. - In Nova Soot la the best seams
of coal in mined manv mllea and at
a depth of many hundred feet below the
bottom of the sea. In England ' also
some of the best - seams of coal are
followed out underneath the Sea, and
it is supposed that coal veins are con.
ttnuous from southern England to the
continent far beneath the bottom of
Dover Strait.-, But fortunately the down
.ward motion of the coal area was in
duetime arrested, and the contrary
movement begun, which has brought this
priceless material within easy -reach of
men in the mountains- of Pennsylvania
and China, in the hills of England and
in the plateaus of the central and i west
rn states of America. Other illustra
tions of great changes In land levels
are too numerous to be -mentioned in
detail. In Colorado there was a gradual
subsidence of land below sea level dur
ing i the carboniferous and : cretaceous
.eras until from 12,000 to 15.000 feet of
sediment bad accumulated over the sink
ing area. But at the end of that period
the area began to rise, and this rise has
continued until the present time, when
it stands many thousand feet above the
level of the sea. -r i-.
.'.. Similar witness of such changes of
level Is borne by extensive sedimentary
rocks containing abundant, sea shells of
late geological age, which are found at
height of 10,000 feet above the sea on
the Pyrenees, the Alps and the Caucasus
mountains, and at a height of 14.000
feet upon the mountains of central Asia,
A map of the eastern continent during
.the early part of . the tertiary period
shows a great Mediterranean sea cover
ing al( central Europe and extending into
Asia, submerging the highlands of Thi-
het.and most of the mountains of Turk
stan. But that 'this was not a general
subsidence of the continents is evident
from the simple fact that these areas
o r Mnml with aarilmantnrv at rut A- ' If
mud and sand and gravel are deposited
in water; there must be some area not
far away from which they could ba de
rived. ..." : ; ..
.',v"hlle these general facts concerning
changes In land level in ancient geo
logical times beyond all question are
very Impressive, less attention . than
they merit has been given to the facts
showing that corresponding changes are
till going on, and have produced strik
ing results within recent times, and
point ' to interesting .conclusions with
reference to the future.' In connection
with the glacial period, which- is the
most recent 'of all the geological epochs,
.these changes of level are very' evident
and 'connect themselves ' with the early
nl&lory of mankind. At the close of the
tertiary period, which culminated in the
glacial era, the central and northern part
of North America stood at a level of
2.000 or S.000 feet above that it at pres
ent occupies.' This Is proved by the ex
istence of innumerable channels now
deeply burled by glacial debrlsv or ex
tending out into the ocean across the
shallow,, submerged shelf of the conti
nent both upon the Atlantlo and Pa
ciflo coasts. In Illinois, in Ohio and in
central New York these hurled channels
are found down below sea level, showing
. that the land must have been very much
elevated to allow the streams which
crossed these rocky gorges to make their
way-to the sea irom -these' distant in
land points.' The cities of Cleveland, O.

emptied' into the sea 100 miles or more
east bf ' the , present , shore, running
through deep gorges or canyons, which
crossed a level coastal plain.. The flords
of Oreeland and of Norway' and of the
Pacific coast of North America bear sim
ilar testimony, since they probably, in
most cases, mark the lines of ancient
rivers which coursed through them to
the sea when the land was so much elo
vated that what are now the bottoms of
these channels were occupied by rushing
mountain torrents. In short, these fiords
are drowned river valleys.
But at the close xf the glacial period
the land levels in all, this northern re
gion were much lower than at the pres
ent time.- Oh the southern coast of New
England sea beaches were thrown up
about S feet higher than those which are
formed now. - Along the southern shore
of Maine the land had sunk so much
that sea shells are found in clay de
posits 250 feet above the present sea
level. The Champlaln and St Lawrence
valley was so much depressed that
whales sported in salt water over the
site of Middlebury college, Vermont and
seals ventured into an arm of the sea
extending far up. Into the Ottawa river,
while at Montreal modern sea shells are
found 600 feet above present tide water
upon the top of the mountain which
gives the city its name. ; Oolng farther
north the indications are that upon the
shores of the Arctio sea post-glacial sub
sidence amounted to 1,000 feet Every
where across the continent there is cu
mulative evidence that this post-glacial
subsidence was as extensive as the
glaciated region, and that it Increased
in amount from south to north. This is
a very important consideration to be
kept in mind fn working out glacial and
post-glacial "problems. This differential
northerly depression at the close of the
glacial period caused the great lakes to
flow at first into the Ottawa river across
Lake Niplsslng over the site of North
Bay into the Mattawa river, and so into
the Ottawa along the line through which
the Canadian government is talking of
building a ship canal, and which is al
ready utilised by the Canadian Paclflo
railroad. . This pass is now less than 100
feet above the level of the lakes.

HOW RUSSIA TREATS FINLAND
Washington Correspondence New Tork
"It may not be that the domestic dis
turbances in Russia during, the eastern
war will amount to an armed revolution;
but I believe that Russia will .not be al
lowed to 'come out of this war' without a
harness laid on her autocracy. ( The
people, who have suffered oppression so
long, will take advantage of the situa
tion to demand eome guarantees which
cannot be ruthlessly violated at the
whim of a despotic minister of state."
Thus spoke Count Carl Mannerhelm,
formerly a banker in Helslngfors, Fin
land, but now an exile under the ban of
tne Kussian government
"We Finns were happy and contented
up to the time that the Russian tyranny
began," he went on. "Although we had
suffered some lntrenchment upon our
constitutional rights prior to 1809, we
may fix that year as the date of the dis
tinctive changes. . It was then that Rus
sia began to show her hand, by sweep
ing aside ; the constitutional guarantee
given by Czar - Alexander .. L and re
spected by his successors, that three of
the lour orders composing tne es
tates of the realm the nobility, the
clergy, the burghers and the peas
antsshould always agree upon - the
adoption of any fundamental meas
ure of-4aw discussed in the , diet he
fore it ceuld receive the sanction of the
sovereign. There wasonly one mean
ing to. this that the last defense of
Finland from arbitrary and violent Rus
slflcatlon had been broken down. How
the Finns regarded it is shown by the
record of emigration, which between
1892 and 1898 had averaged about 8,000
souls yearly, but sprang in 1899 to 12,
000. and by 1902 had reached 22,000."
. "Are your r people homogenous or
mixed r .
. "We are a mixed people, the upper
and more highly educated classes being
of Swedish origin, while the peasantry
are literally of the soil, though they
can read and write. ' There is a strong
national feeling among us, however, and
a sympathetic bond uniting, all classes.
Ours was an excellent type of popular
government in which the humblest
participant understood his rights and
"Do you look for an uprising among
the Finns while Russia has her hands
full in the east?" your correspondent
inquired. ., ' : V ' - -
"I should not wish to say 'that Tou
must understand that our people always
used to;regard Russia as their friend,
as well as their colleague under the
crown. The czars, at their . accession,
have regularly subscribed afresh to the
'act of assurance pledging the inviola
bility of the Finnish constitution, and
have ascended the . throne as grand
dukes of Finland as well as emperors
of Russia: and not until the renewal of
the guaranty have the Finnish officials
taken their oath of allegiance. The rad
ical change in Russia's attitude came
to the Finns with a distinct shock.
They were hurt by it . They are a
peace-loving people. The greatest ef
forts have been made by the Russians
to goad them-Into riotous conduct hut
in vain. A passive resistance Is all
they have offered, but that has been
very pronounced. ,
"Why you would be astonished at the
lengths to which the Russians have
gone in this goading. , I have seen, with
my own eyes, unoffending citlsens of
Helslngfors whipped in the streets by
Cossacks, A new conscription law, ut
terly at variance with our constitution,
had been promulgated, f Our courts re
fused to recognize It, and again In de
fiance of the constitution the honorable
Judges were ' dismissed. ' Pastors of
churches who refused to read the: law
to their people -were driven from their
ministry, Thenjeame the conscription.
It waa a beautiful, bright day In April,
1902, and a crowd Of people had assem
bled in a public square to witness the
function. ' There was not even a show
of violence or disorder, and the crowd
was dispersing, when, by order of the
governor,, a troop of Cossacks- swept
down upon the scene. The people, out
of curiosity to see what the v Cossacks
had come for, .turned around and came
back. This was the signal for a charge
upon them, and the cruel CosBack whips
descended upon every one within reach
the aged and crippled, little children,
helpless women, all were treated alike
ill every one who saw the affair waa
sickened at heart" -:'
"To. what, do you attribute the Rus
sian determination to crush Finland f -.
"To two causes. Primarily, the
bureaucracy of the empire needed more
off ices,, more salaries, more authority to
distribute, among its supporters. As
long as Finland was governed by the
Finns this . expansion, was , out of the
question; but the csar was able, by the
mere exercise of his despotic power, to
sweep aside- our constitutional - reserve-
tions ana puti Kussians into our nign
places, till six out of the nine provincial
governors in Finland were Russians, and
the three Finns left were mere minions
of the autocracy. . -
"The second cause is, I suspect a de
sire on Russia's part to use Finland as
a base of operations against Sweden,
She doubtless thinks that the BwedlBh
affiliations of our higher classes, , who
number perhaps . one-eighth' of our pop
ulation, would militate against her am
bition, and Is determined to strangle
"I was visited on the 231 of -April.
1903, at 7 o'clock-In the morning, by the
chief of police, who brought as his war
rant a letter from the governor, saying
that the czar had oonferred upon the lat
ter the right to order out of the coun
try any person whose presence there
was deemed by him perilous to good or
der; and that tinder this edict I was
commanded to depart within five days,
never to return under pain of deporta
tion to. eome place in Russia where I
would be"-compelled to stay under con
stant police surveillance. . ,
"Tou were not the only auffererT"
'"There were scores of others, but
X was the first exile. Some were ban
ished in like manner; others were ue
ported. Of late banishment has been
quite superseded by deportation,, which
the government regards as safer for it
self. Anf exile, you see, can go where
he pleases outside of the csar'a domin
ions and talk as freely as I do. He can
wnlte for the press. He can also stir
up affairs at home in a manner some
times i disquieting to ? the , authorities.
For example, at Darmstadt In Germany,
When the csar waa there last fall, a com
mittee of exiles, with myself at the
head, drew up a memorial to him, setting
rortn tne racts of the Finnish situation.
We did not obtain an audience with the
csar himself, but a minister of the court
accepted our memorial for presentation
to him, and I have reason to believe that
it was duly delivered. Our paper was an
answer to misrepresentations, which M.
de Plehve, the minister of the interior,
who happens now to be at the front of
affairs, had made In a recent publication.
We feared that he had made the same
misrepresentations to the csar directly
and wished to counteract them - while
there was still an opportunity.

men Plehve, Bobrlkoff, and Kouropta
kin who 'now are carrying everything
