Prof. Michaelson has just returned to
Boston from California, where he has
spent a large portion of the summer.
He has been working at Lick Observa

invention the refractometer. This he
attached to the smaller of the telescopes
at the observatory, and during the sum

of the bodies of the solar system, partic
ularly oi me satellites oi Jupiter. The
results of this work were highly satisfac
tory, and the mean of the measurements
made varies from the maximum and
minimum measurements by but 1 or 2
per cent. a variation many times less
than is obtainable by other methods.
The refractometer will be used by the
staff at Lick Observatory during the com
ing year, and in that time Prof. Michael
son hopes to perfect his invention still
further. The refractometer bids fair to
be an instrument of great importance in
future astronomical work.

for killing one of the soldiers under him.
The court found him guilty, and sen
tenced him to suspension from rank and
command for three years on half pay
and to be confined in the limits of a mil

proceedings of the court, but mitigated
the sentence to suspension from rank

The Director of the' Mint, with the
approval of the Secretary of the Treasury,
has issued instructions to the superin

that in cases of deposits of foreign gold
or bars such an approximation of value
as in the discretion of the superintendent
may be regarded as safe, not to exceed
90 per cent, of the value, will be paid
pending the melt and assay. The pur
pose of this regulation is to encourage,
so far as can be legally done, the govern
ment importation of foreign gold into
the United States by allowing the im
porters spot cash for foreign gold so soon
as received instead of requiring them to
wait while the deposits are being melted
and the exact gold determined.
