Although that quote is from an Australian newspaper, it's in an article headed
"NOTES FROM LONDON / [From our Special Correspondent]" and datelined London,
1908-05-22. As such, I expect it's using English terminology rather than
Australian. There's a 2015-08-08 comment about this in the "europe" file.
The article also cites opinions of two ex-Astronomers Royal for Ireland. We
cannot seem to escape the Irish question....
