Abstract

I HAVE carefully looked at this question from every point of view which presented itself to me, and doubt very much whether any direct evidence will ever be forthcoming on this subject, unless it should one day be established that the changes of magnetic declination are associated with a slight difference of rotation between the core of the earth and its crust, for such a movement would have to be explained by a difference of rate of contraction between the two.
