Excerpt from Report of the Meteorological Service of the Dominion of Canada: For the Year Ending December 31, 1887
Numerous determinations of the collimation error of the transit instrument have been made, chieﬂy by micrometrical measurements on the cross wires in the collima ting telescope.
The meteorological and magnetic work has been continued as in previous years, and the preparation of the tabular matter for the report of the work during the year July, 1882, to July, 1883, has been continued, but owing to the insufficiency of the staff it is not yet completed.
The death of T. Menzies, observer, and the appointment of his son, William Menzies, to succeed him has been noticed in my report of the Meteorological Service.
