M. Neff Monday night presented his
own labor stand and ridiculed that of

this tour he was not Interrupted by a
demand as to his stand on the open-

After his rest Mr. Neff seems to
have recovered completely from the

1 I'^llll l-HM-l-j.M i
Washington, I). C., August 12.—On
account of having recently com-
pleted immensely Important Improve-
ments In my system of weuther t'ore-
qastlng it Is necessary for me to
radically change my methods of plac-
ing them before the public. I do not
mean to say my system is now per-
fect but It Is vastly better than any-
thing I have heretofore boen able to
accomplish. I am very much elated
over my success and it remains to be
seen whether my readers will feel asi
1 do about It.
Very low temperatures were ex-
pected to cross continent during the
week centering on Aug 1. That fore'
cast was correct. Severe storms
wero expected to cross continent dur-
ing the five days centering on Aug.
10. I am writing this Bulletin on Aug.
6 and these storms have not yet ap-
peared In the far northwest.
Heretofore I could not closely ap-
proximate the paths across the con-
tinent that the storm centers, warmi
waves, cool waves and cold waves
would follow. Hereafter these ele-
ments of the forecast will be Im-
proved to an important extent. Some-
times the cool wave continues east-
ward on the north side of the storm
center, sometimes on the south side,
tiimetimes behind It. Hereafter 1 will
forecast these Important events and
designate, more definitely where the
rain and snow will fall.
The center of an extensive but
moderate cool wave is expected to
reach Vancouver, B. C., Aug. 16 or
17 and move to near St. Louis In
about two days; then eastwurd, reach-
ing the Atlantic about 18 or 19. Light
rains are expected in Its northern
quarter of quadrant. During tho pass-
ago of this cool wave the tempera-
tures will be relatively lower in the
southern states than in our northern
tier of states and Canada. Tem-
peratures are expected to average be-
low normal in the southern states up
to Aug. 28.
The center of an extensive warm
wave is expected to reach Vancouver,
B. C., near Aug. 19 and move east-
ward along tho American-Canadian
line, reaching meridian 90 about Aug.
21 and eastern sections ^3 or 24.
During Its passage a cool wave will
bo passing through the southern
states and temperatures will average
relatively higher In northern than in
southern sections. Scattered show-
ers will accompany these distur-
bances but more rain is expected in
northern than In southern sections.
Temperatures are expected to aver-
age normal in northern sections by
which 1 mean tho northern tier of
states and Canada,
1 have definitely determined as to
the causes of excessive evaporation.
There Is some evaporation operating
at all times but it varies greatly and
I know tho cause of the variations.
This is a very Important matter be-
cause the amount of rain and snow
depends on tho amount of evapora-
tion. Excessive evaporation occurs
only on the Gulf of Mexico aiul thei
Caribbean Sea, or on the Atlantic east
of the Statesc, or east of Canada, or
on the Paciglc southwest of Califor-
nia, or south of Alaska, then excessive
rains or snows will fall somewhere on.
this continent. The locations of the
precipitations will be controlled by
what Is called tho topography of tho
country. The extensions of the high
ridges, mountains, long and wldo
valleys, In Mon to tho locality
where tho ->rs are evaporaicit,

amount of r<u and snow and there-
fore with cropweather and crops.

cast results; not perfectly but better
