fired upon by the Sultan's army,
and that night the bioodiest battle in the history of the Turkish
Empire followed. Three thousand were killed, the streets being

place was surrounded by Circassians who were threatening an
attack. A French cruiser has

Mediterranean to land every available man and bombard the towns
if the rioting continues.
ter from Miss Lambert, an American missionary at Hadjin, s��ys :

A wealthy Chicago syndicate
purposes to locate forty square
miles of agricultural lands in the
Francis Lake district in Northern
British Columbia and colonize the
tract with settlers from the Middle States. Its representative is
Mr. H. A. Lake of Seattle, who is
a guest at the Vancouver Hotel,
savs the Province. Mr. Lake is
accompanied by L. C. Steadman,
a prominent attorney of the same
city. Mr. Steadman is here to
arrange eertain legal preliminaries.
Mr. Lake will sail tonight on the
Camosun for Kitimat, whence he
will make his way inland over the
trail via Hazelton. He has engaged the services of Mr. Frank
Watson, a well known mining
prospector and explorer, as guide.
Mr. Lake stated today that a party
of surveyors would follow shortly in order to survey the kinds
without delay, as it was likely
several hundred settlers will purchase farms and emigrate to the
Francis Lake district during the
coming summer. He represents
a Arm which has made a specialty of locating Americans in the
prairie provinces. Its success
there prompted it to make a similar experiment in British Columbia.
From information he has received he is convinct'd that Northern British Columbia offers exceptional advantages in the way
of ranching and mixed farming,
j while the winter climate is described as being very moderate.
The syndicate has a waiting list
of several hundred people who
are desirous of locating somewhere in the vicinity of the Grand
Trunk Pacific.

lacHeton's Dasb to the
Soutli Pole.
A special despatch to the London Daily Mail from Lieut. Shack-
elton, sent from Half Moon Bay,
New Zealand, contains an interesting account of his recent dash
to the South Pole. Lieut. Shack-
elton says: The most southerly
point reached in our Antarctic
expedition was latitude 88 degrees
23 minutes, longitude east 162
degrees, a distance of 111 miles
from the Pole itself.
The journey was very difficult.
After crossing several mountains*
we reached a plateau 10,000 feet-
high. Several new mountain
ranges were discovered. The distance travelled was 1,703 miles,
and the time occupied was 126
days. In all more than 100 new
mountain peaks were discovered.
Both equipment and food supplies proved very satisfactory.
The Manchurian ponies did as well
expected. We felt the hardships
of the journey very severely.
Good zoological discoveries were
made, and important sledge journeys were' undertaken west and
north.
The South Magnetic Pole was?
reached in latitude 72 degrees 25
minutes, longitude 154 degrees.
J. K. Davis, first mate; Forbes
MacKSy, assistant surgeon, and
Marson made northwesterly
sledge journeys lasting 22 days
and coveting a distance of 124
statute miles.
The winter was mild, and the
lowest temperature they encountered was 40 degrees below zero,
Fahrenheit. The geological results of the expedition are asi m-
portant as the zoological. Mount
Erebus, the southernmost volcano
in the world, 13,200 feet high,
was ascended for the first time.
A party, including Lieut. Adams,
Sir Philip Brocklehurst, Forbes
MacKay and Eric Marshall, left
Cape Royd on March 5. 1908, to
ascend the great Antarctic volcano. On the morning of the 7th
they climbed with the sledges to
an altitude of 5,500 feet. With
the equipment on their backs, on
the night of the 7th they reached
an altitude of 9,200 feet. The
temperature was fifty degrees below the fieezing point. Then a
violent blizzard raged for thirty
nours.
Resuming the ascent on the 9th
they reached an old crater at an
altitude of over 11,000 feet. They
explored the crater and unique
fumaroles (smoke holes) were
found. Brocklehurst had both
feet frost-bitten and one toe was
subsequently amputated.
The summit was reached on the
10th. The active crater is half a
mile in diameter and 8,000 feet
deep. It was ejecting vast volumes of steam and sulphurous gas
to a height of 2,000 feet.
Hypsometer readings were taken simultaneously with those
from the base station. Geological collections were made and
photographs were taken. In descending the party glissaded by.
stages down 5,000 feet, reaching
the sled depot.
The geographical South Pole is
doubtless situated in a plateau

10,000 to 11,000 feet above sea
level. Violent blizzards in latitude 88 degrees show that if the
Polar calm exists it must be small
in area or not coincident with the
geographic Pole.
We commen-ed sledging on
August 12, Messrs. Armytage,
David and 1 went to examine a
great ice barrier surface. We
encountered low temperature cf
89 degrees of frost.
The Southern party, Adams,
Marshall, Wild and I, with four
ponies and a supporting party
consisting of Sir Phillip Brocklehurst and Messrs. Joyce, Marson,
Armytage and Priestly left Cape
Royd op October 29, 1908.
We left Hut Point on November 3 with ninety-one days' provisions. We were held up on Hite
Island November 5 and for four
days by a blizzard. The spport-
ing party returned on November
7.
On November 13 we reached
the depot laid out in September
on latitude 79 degrees, 36 minutes
longitude 168 east. We took on
the pony maize and provisions
previously left there and commenced reducing our daily rations
We travelled south along meridian 168 over a varying surface
of sastrugi ridges and mounds of
snow, alternating with soft snow.
The ponies often s,ank to their
bellies. In latitude 81 degrees,
4 minutes we shot one pony and
made a depot of oil biscuit and
pony meat. The remainder of the
pony meat we took along to eke
out our dried rations.
On November 30, the pony
' 'Quau" was shot. Steering south
and south-east we were now approaching a high range of new
mountains trending to the southeast. On December 2 we found
the barrier influenced by a great
pressure and the ridges of snow
and ice turned into land.
We discovered a glacier 120
miles long and approximately 40
miles wide running in a south and
soutlvwesterly direction. On December 5, we started to ascend
the glacier at latitude 83 degrees,
33 minutes, longitude 172 degrees.
The glacier was badly crevassed
as a result of huge pressure. On
December 6, the surface was so
crevassed that it took the whole
clay to fight our way 600 yards.
On December the pony '\Socks"
breaking through the snow lid,
disappeared into acrevass ef unknown depth. The singletree
snapping, We saved Mr. Wild and
the sledge, which was damaged.
The party was now hauling a
weight of 250 pounds per man.
The clouds disappearing on the
8th of December, we discovered
new mountain ranges trending
south and south-west. Moving
up the glacier over the treacherous snow covering the crevasses,
wc frequently fell through, and
were saved by our harness and
pulled out with Alpine ropes. The
second sledge was badly damaged
by  the  knife-edged  crevasses, i
Similar conditions obtained on our
way up the glacier from December 6 to 18, when we reached an
altitude of 6,80.0 feet. In latitude
85 degrees, 10 minutes, 3 seconds,
we made a depot and' left every-
toing there but our food, instruments and camp equipage, and
reduced our rations to 20 ounces
per man daily.
On December 26 w;e reached a
plateau after crossing, jce falls at
an altitude 9,000 feet, thenee rising gradually in long ridges to 10-
500 feet. Finising the relay work
we discarded tne second sledge.
There was a constant southerly
blizzard of wind apd drifting
snow, with a temperature rang-
ind from 37 degrees to 70 degrees
of frost.
On January 9 we left camp and
reached latitude 88 degrees, 23
minutes, longitude 162east This
is the most southerly point ever
reached. Here we hoisted the
Union Jack presented to us by
Her Majesty the Queen, No
mountains were visible. We saw
now a plain stretching to the
south. We returned to our depot
on the plateau, guided by our outward tracks, for the flag attached
to the tent poles had blown away.
Less violent blizzards blowing
at our backs helped us to travel
from twenty to twenty-mine miles
daily, reaching the upper glacier
depot on January 19.
At 9 in the morning of January
26 our foqd was finished. It was
slow going. Sixteen miles were
covered in twenty-two hours'
march. The snow was two feet
deep, concealing the crevasses.
We reached the lower glacier depot January 27 and there obtained food.
The remainder of the return
journey was accomplished with
great difficulty with several intervals without food. Most of the
party were down with dysentery,
unable to move.
The party rejoined the ship at
Hut Point on March 4, after a
journey of a total distance of
1,708 statute miles and of 126
days.
