A FEAT IN SURVEYING. [Newspaper Article] — The Register — 5 March 1901

A FEAT IN SURVEYING. Surveyors in South Australia will in future be enabled lo correct their chains and other standards of measure-' ment by reference to the permanent bar which has been installed at the Old Government Buildings as de scribed in 'The Register' a few weeks ago. It is now generally accepted as an axiom that the attempt to secure an absolutely correct natural standard of length is 'necessarily destined to be futile. The final results of the stu pendous task recently completed by the American Coast and Geodetic Survey Department, after nearly thirty years of labour, must bring this truth more vividly before the minds of those who have contended that iihe metric' system is perfect, being accurately based on natural- facts. It was' enacted by the French Legislature in 1791, at the height of the worst troubles of the re volution, that the absolute standard of measurement should be the metre, which was to be taken as one forty millionth part of the earth's circum ference; b...
