FOR the last six years a meteorological observatory, equipped with modern instruments, has existed at Chemulpo, and has been working energetically to establish a network of stations, from which the climatic elements of the country might be derived. Many difficulties have been encountered, but that these have been successfully overcome is shown by the issue of the first volume of scientific memoirs from the observatory, in which the director, Dr. Y. Wada, describes the progress that has been made and sketches the programme it is proposed to follow: He is to be congratulated upon the success of his vigorous direction, for a map shows that forty-five stations have been furnished with instruments, from which reports are received regularly. Most of these stations are scattered round the coast, at lighthouses, but there is also a chain of observatories running through the Interior, and these no doubt will be increased as the country progresses.
