During Excerpt from Annual Report of the State Geologist for the Year 1881 This work is prosecuted continuously, and the progress made during the season just past has been highly satisfactory. Though done at the expense of the United States, it is directed in such ways and to such places as may best suit the State Geologist, and aid him in carrying forward the State Survey. During the past year primary stations have been occupied at Montana, in Warren county, and at Cnlver's Gap and High Point, in Sussex county, and observa tions have been taken upon several other stations. And the exact latitude and longitude of seven (7) primary stations and of twenty eight (28) tertiary stations have been determined by this survey. In conducting this work every possible means are taken to ensure accuracy. The best instruments are provided, and the observers are trained to wait patien tly until repeated and unquestionably accurate observations can be made. This frequently requires weeks, and sometimes months, in a single place, before satisfactory results can be obtained. But the obj ect sought is really obtained, and the exact geographical positions of places are found with astonishing closeness. In the progress of the work this season, the line between Montana and Pickles mountain is one of the lines from the center of a hexagon around Pickles, and the azimuths of this line, as arrived at by com puting from the triangles on each side, agree within 1 the lengths of the line arrived at in the same way differ by less than 4 inches on a distance of 19 miles, the latitudes of Montana agree within and the longitudes within These results are very satisfactory, and they supply a series of reliable points, about which maps may be correctly and safely constructed.
