A BIG SEAQUAKE.
UNDER THE INDIAN OCEAN. (Received 9.35 a.m.) PERTH, this day. The seismograph at the Observatory recorded a series of severe earth shocks, extending from 7 to 8.16 yesterday morn- 1 ing. The interval between the prelirain- ] nry tremor and the first long wave mdi- i cates that the quake was 700 miles dis- i tant, its origin probably being in the Indian Ocean. 1 —————————_____——. <
