TIMES OF UPPER MERIDIAN PASSAGE OF POLARIS, OR NORTH STAR, 1898.

Surveyors and civil engineers may obtain the variation of the magnetic needle for any place in the United States by directing
their compass to the North Star (Polaris) when it is upon the meridian, as given in the table below, for the upper culmination:
