function eqfeed_callback(data) {
    for(var i=0;i<data.features.length;i++) {
       alert(data.features[i].properties.mag);
    }
};
var myURL = 'http://comcat.cr.usgs.gov/fdsnws/event/1/query?starttime=2014-10-01%2000:00:00&minmagnitude=6&format=geojson&callback=eqfeed_callback&endtime=2014-10-31%2023:59:59&orderby=time';

var s = document.createElement("script");

So if it works to build this with jQuery, why is it that when copying the URL to a script tag in the head from the start it fails?

Sorry for not getting back to this sooner.
Just confirming if the result had been a simple file of data starting out with  eqfeed_callback({"type":"FeatureCollection","metadata" ...  then I could have just used a <script src="myscripts.js"></script>  in the head. But since this is a call to a file that is being generated I need the let the script know to read the result as JavaScript - thus    s.type = "text/javascript";
