The victims  are: Thomas O'Connell, Andrew  Moffatt, James Ewart, Robert Mar  shall, William Robertson, William  Quinn, Edward Dunn, James Moly  neux, Howard Taylor, William Davidson, Alexander Melos, Thomas Thomas  Peter Nolan, William Kesserich.Thomp-  son Parkin, John Bullitch, Charles  Schuff, Wynn Steele, Robert White,  James Ismaster, Fred Ingham, Alex.  McLennan, John Wargo, Herman  Peterson.  Two Finlanders, names unknown;  three loaders and two drivers are also  missing.  Thomas Hislop who was one of the  last of the bulk of the 700 miners and  assistants who scurried from the Extension mines after the disastrous explosion, was seen at the Tunnel Hotel  at Extension tonight and gave a most  graphic story. He was working with  16 men, including five of the dead, on  the first level when they heard the explosion, followed by a great rush of air.  He dropped his pick and shouted:  "My God, she's blasted."  "We stood for a second in the darkness," continued  Hislop.    "The rush  of wind put our lamps out until some  one came with a safety   lamp   and   15  of the seventeen of us, holding coat-  tails, hurried along, carrying the lamp  to catch the glistening of the rail, but  were driven back.    A  great  cloud of  smoke flew into our faces, and we got  a whiff of after-damp and-we knew we  must'''go"'baclf; "Through"into "the  counter level we  went, but  we could  not get through.    The damp drove us  out into the level again.    We   tried to  clamber up into No. 10 stall across  to |  the crosscut, but we  were driven out.  In No. 3   counter  level   we  left  five  men.    Alexander   McLellan, Jack Ismaster,   Wynn   Steele,   Fred   Ingham  and Bob White stayed   there.    When  we lost them we did not know that the  damp had got  them.    We  knew  nothing then, except that the smoke and  damp was chasing us  back  whichever  way   we   went.      We    struggled   on,  though.    After  awhile,   being  almost  lost, we sat down to figure out what  could be done.    We  were tired   and  beaten back.    The fire damp came so  thick that the air could not be breathed  and we had to run back from  it.    We  decided to remain, to wait for relief or  for death.    We had  not  waited   long  when   we  heard  a  shout  and  Alex.  Shaw, the foreman, and Davidsson, the  man   who   lost   his  son in the mine,  came.    When we heard their shouts  instructing us, we smashed through the  stoping  and  crawled   over   to  safety.  Then, fatigued and worn out, we clambered out   up   the  stope, clinging   to  each other's coat-tails and   helped by  men who met us with   safety   lanterns.  We waited at  the   stope-head, but the  five never came out.   And I'm waiting  still for them.    They must have been  dead a long while now, though."  All day long rescuers have fought  the fire damp, repairing the blown-out  stopings and the brattices, though  none held out hope that any of the 3?  men known to be in the mine escaped.  Inspectors Shepherd and Dick, with  Manager Graham of the Western Fuel  Company, came from Nanaimo, and  with Superintendent Little and Manager Bryden, led parties of workers.  Numbers worked heroically. Alexander Shaw and the fire bosses were  indefatigable.  An examination of the mine shows  comparatively few ofthe timbers blown  out, and but one or two caves where  the roofing has fallen. One extension  lor about 50 feet with a good deal of  fallen coal, stopped the work of those  searching for bodies near midnight,  when 1S had been recovered.  The general opinion of the miners  is that the explosion was due to a  blown-out shot. They can give no  other reason, and the officials say they  are entirely at a loss to account for it.  Mother Lode mine" is at present  employing about 225 men,  A good showing of ore has been uncovered in the shaft'of the Kokoino,  on Wallace mountain, by R. Perry.  The next meeting of the western  branch of the Canadian Mining Institute will be held in; Vancouver next  February.  Contractor Jenkins, who has been  in charge of the diamond drilling at  the Oro Denoro mine is.'.now operating  the drill at Mother' Lode.  The Bruce mine at Midway is reported to be in' financial difficulties,  some of the miners not having received  their wages. J. C. Haas of Spokane,  consulting engineer, states that all debts  will be paid in a short time.  A. B. W. Hodges, local manager of  the Granby Consolidated, after attending the meeting of mining engineers  in Spokane last week, .went to New  York to be present at the general  meeting of the Granby company on  Tuesday. Mrs. Hodges' accompanied  him. -  Both the Granby and British Columbia Copper smelters showed big in  creases���zooo tons each*--in the tonnage of ore smelted this week over that  of previous weeks. At the former  seven furnaces are now in full blast,  while at the latter three are in operation. '.''������.���...  Among the notable features of the  week's mining in the Boundary was the  big increase in the output of the Oro  Denoro, which amounted to nearly 175  tons per day. The force at the mine  has been further augmented and it is  expected the tonnage-will, continue to  increase. Mother Lode and Snowshoe  mines also contributed an increase in  ore shipments. .���..-/.;..������  The Sally mine, the Boundary's  highgrade property on Wallace mountain, has made another shipment of 22  tons to the Trail smelter,,the net returns of which are expected to run  about $2,500. This is the sixth ship  ment fiom the Sally this year,' with a  total of 125 tons, and it is expected  another car will be shipped .before the  end of the.year.       .:.','.;  A.slight break occufredVtatGrapby's  N6'7 2' crusher on:WednescTay which  resulted in shipmentsfrom that outlet  being temporarily suspended. An  extra force were ..put. to.-work at the  Gold Drop, however, and the usual  tonnage from the mine was maintained. The repairing of. the crusher  is expected to be completed today and  shipping from No. 2 will be resumed  tomorrow. The company availed  themselves of the opportunity to wire  No. 2 tunnel for the intended electrification.  CONSOLIDATED CO.  TO INCREASE CAPITAL  Stock From $5,500,000 to $7,-  500,000  The fourth annual general meeting  of the shareholders of the Consolidated  Mining & Smelting Company of Canada, which operates the Snowshoe and  Phoenix Amalgamated, and mines at  Rossland and Moyie, will be held in  the offices of the company, in Toronto,  on Tuesday, Oct. 12th. The reports  ofthe officers will be presented and  other business transacted. A special  general meeting of the shareholders  will be held at the offices after the  close of the general meeting, or an adjournment theieof, for the purpose of  considering and affirming a by-law of  the board of directors of the company,  providing for the increasing of the  capital stock of the company from $5,-  500,000 jto $7,500,000.  Two Old Time  Proipecton  The Pioneer had a visit from Charles  Dundee of Rossland on Thursday, who  was accompanied by Charlie Taylor,  the locator of Goldfields, on a visit to  old tillicums of the Boundary. Both  are well-known prospectors throughout the interior.  Mr. Dundee arrived in British Columbia on the first C-P-R. train through  the rockies, nearly a quarter of a cen  tury ago, and spent the first year pros  pecting in the Illecillewaet district,  which he maintains will yet become  prominent in mining. He later located in Rossland and since that time  has prospected and staked several  properties which have since become  mines.  Charlie Taylor is one.of ,the; best  known of the old-time prospectors on  the coast on both sides ofthe boundary  line, and achieved fame in being the  original, locator of Nevada's famous  mine at Goldfields, which has left him  in comfortable circumstances. His  headquarters is anywhere he, happens  to be in the mining region, and he  enjoys periodical trips to the land of  birth across the Atlantic, to which he  is now en route.  G  Phoenicians at the Altar  Miles���Alff  A quiet wedding took place at the'  residence of Mrs. C. VV.: Miles,..512  East Ermina avenue, Spokane, at five  o'clock yesterday afternoon, ' when  Henry Colton Miles, of Phoenix steam  laundry, was married to Miss Victoria  May Alff, formerly of Phoenix.        /  Weir���Qibboni  James Weir got the start of his intimate friends this week when he' hied  himself to Spokane and returned to  town last night with his bride (nee  Miss Leona Gibbons, formerly of  Phoeuix). Their friends in town  greeted the happy couple's home-coming with a rousing reception last night.  McNIchol���Markley  The nuptials of George L. McNkol,  of the Granby company, and Miss  Markley, formerly-matron of Phoenix  general hospital, were quietly solemnized in Vancouver on Wednesday, 8th  inst. After the ceremony the happy  couple left on a trip to Seattle and  other coast points and on their return  to Phoenix will take up residence on  Second Street.  INCREASE IN    7  PRODUCTION  Substantial Growth in  Granby Output  ^  800,000 Pounds More Copper  This Year Than Last  Hlbberi���Lancaster  Union Theatre Company  Arrangements have been made for a  big comedy show in the Phoenix  opera house next Wednesday evening,  Oct. 13. Fred Stanfield, the noted  comedian, and his company will appear  in high-class vaudeville and a roaring  farce comedy. New moving pictures  and illustrated songs will be included.  A feature of the show will be a competition among local vocalists for a  handsome prize, a .local committet  being appointed judges. A royal entertainment is promised.  J. L. Martin, who recently left  Phoenix, after spending several days at  the A.Y.-P. exposition at Seattle, left  Spokane a few days ago on a trip to  Illinois, expecting to return in time for  the annual meeting of the Carney Copper company, of which he is president,  early in December. Mrs. Martin accompanied him.  Firebuf deta Busy  The artful designs of a firebug were  nipped in the bud about midnight on  Wednesday, when a fire was discovered  in the "dry" in the basement of Deane's  hotel Had such a fire ever gained  headway the destruction of the main  business section of the city would undoubtedly resulted. The work of the  firebug was only discovered by accident  when an employee of the restaurant  chanced to go to the basement. He  found the dry all ablaze and on sec-iring  help with buckets of water the fire was  extinguished. On examination it was  found the walls and floor of the dry  had been saturated with coal oil and  earmarks of the firebug made his designs obvious.  The city and provincial police were  immediately notified, and although a  plan of detective work was intituted no  clue as to the perpetrator has yet been  seemed.    At the Targets  The turnout of eighteen members  of Phoenix Rifle Association at the  practice on the 3rd inst., indicates the  increasing interest in the weekly shoots.  The day was fairly good for the practice and some good records were made,  Geo. Boxwell and D. A. Grant scoring,  while W. Slack, scoring 28 had also a  bullseye for a sighter.  Scores, 500 yards:  Geo. Boxwell 5���3  Map Will Soon be Ready .  W. H. Boyd, of the Dominion geological survey department, was a guest  at the- Brooklyn over Sunday. Mr.  JJoyd ancL.O.JE.JLerqyr-.who spent; last-  summer surveying Phoenix camp, have"  just about completed their survey of  the territory between Kootenay and j  Slocan lakes, where they have been en- -rern-  gaged this summer, the area totalling  about 264 square miles. Mr. Boyd  left on Monday for Ottawa, Mr. LeRoy  remaining at Kaslo to complete detail  work, Speaking of the map which the  department will issue in connection  with the survey of Phoenix camp, Mr.  Boyd thought it will soon be issued  and ready for distribution.

After copying word for word the  Pioneer's recent write-up ofthe Hedley  Gold Mining company, the Gazette  says the article "is taken from the  Spokesman-Review," in an effort to  detract credit from the Pioneer. The  article in the Spokesman-Review was  entirely different from that which the  Gazette copied from the Pioneer, and  we challenge the Gazette as to the  truth of its statements. The Gazette  says:  "The following account of the new  company organized to work the Nickel  Plate group in this camp is taken from  the Spokesman-Review and emanates  from Phoenix, the presumption being  that most of the data from which it  had been written that had not previously been made public, had been  secured through members of the  Granby, some of whom are interested  in the exploration syndicate as well.  Considerable of the details which it  contains are known to the Gazette,  but as we weie given to understand  that the new company did not wish  them to be made public at this juncture, they were withheld by us until  such time as the new company or its  representatives here were willing that  they should be given out, and there  was no good reason why their wish  should not be acceded to. The article  from the Spokesman-Review and the  Pioneer, while fairly accurate in the  main was astray in some of the figures  given as well as in a few other details."  What a grand-stand salute to the  gallery ! Nothing of the subject  matter had ever been published in the  Gazette before, nor were "considerable  of the details known to the Gazette,"  and its brazen attempt to toady to the  new company is too thin to be misinterpreted. And when the Gazette  states that the Pioneer's report was  " astray in some figures," we can  inform the Gazette that it doesn't know  what it is writing about. The Gazette  further shows its hand when it tries to  connect the Granby company with the  exploration syndicate. The Gazette  evidentally got this tip from some of  tha wireless stock it boosts on its front  page weekly.  On the evening of Thursday,  Sept.  30, at the home of the bride's parents,  Rev. R. W. Hibbert, formerly of this  place, but now of Phoenix,  and  Miss  Hazel   Zelika   Lancaster,  daughter of  Mr. and Mrs. W.  D.  Lancaster,  were  united in marriage by Rev. A. J. Allen,  the members of the family and some  thirty guests witnessing the ceremony.  The room was neatly and effectively  decorated with red and white flowers,  while a bridal arch of smilax adorned  one corner.    The bridal party entered  to the strains  of the wedding   march  from Lohengrin, played by Miss Bessie  Thompson.    After the ceremony, Miss  Thompson also played Mendelssohn's  wedding   march.    The   groom,   who  looked handsome in a black frock coat,  was supported by Rev. J. J. Nixon, of  Peachland.    The   bride   entering  on  the arm of her father, was exceedingly  pretty in a dress of white mousselaine  silk and bridal veil, and carried in her  hand a shower bouquet of white roses  and carnations.    The bridesmaid, Miss  ^Florence Thompson, was attired'fh pale  blue Victoria satin and carried a bouquet of pink geraniums and asparagus  After  the  solemn   words   had  been spoken, Mrs. J. A.  Brown sang  "O Promise Me."     The guests   then  sat down to a dainty supper served by  four girls of the Sunday school choir,  of which Mrs.   Hibbert had been instructor.    The happy couple were the  recipients of a large number of beautiful  and  appropriate presents,  as  well as  numerous   congratulations,   and   universal good wishes.    They left on the  following morning for Portwilliams, N.  S., where they will visit Mr.   Hibbert's  parents for  about six weeks prior  to  taking up their residence in Phoenix.  Mrs. Hibbert will be greatly missed in  Penticton ; the place she has occupied  in church, Sunday school and  social  circles will be hard to fill.    The  Press  joins the numerous friends of Mr. and  Mrs. Hibbert in wishing them a long,  happy and successful married life.���  Penticton Press.  A special committee of Snowshoe  lodge, No. 46, I.O.O.F., are already  making elaborate preparations for their  annual dance, which will take place  in Miners'Union hail on  the   evening  he   leaves  Although the Granby Consolidtaed  has not yet reached the low-cost mark  which it expects to attain, in the pro--  duction of the red metal recent reports  indicate that the company is -making  substantial efforts in that direction.  For the year ended June 30, 1909, the  average copper production cost was 10  cents a pound, compared with 10.24  cents in the previous year. There  were produced slightly more copper  and precious metals than. in the .previous year, copper increasing 800,000  pounds, silver 33,oooounces and gold-  5000 ounces. The total surplus stands  at $2,698,687. Cash and copper total,  $600,459. The company carries among  its assets $981,503 in stocks and bonds.  A. B.W. Hodges, local manager of the  property, in reporting for the year, said:  "The"mine shipped to the: smelter  last year 963,516 tons of ore, against  858,432 for the previous year, and the  smelter treated 984,733 tons.of dry,  ore, including 19,944 tons of custom  ore, which is only 100,000 tons moire  than the previous year.'���'������'' ���     '������������  SEPTEMBER  RECEIPTS    "       ''.  ���It has been generally known that the  Granby .smelter treats a considerable  quantity of ore from ; foreign mines,  but the real extent of these foreign re-,  ceipts or the various contributors' may'  be interesting news'to'even those other-'  wise familiar with the mining of the.  Boundary. The Pioneer herewith 'pre-,  sents the ore receipts for ,the month of,  September, amounting to 83,009 tons.  Of this amount Granby mines at'  Phoenix shipped 78,548 tons, which is'-  well up to the yearly average, and;  some 4,461 tons were received from  ten other other shippers, one of which,  is located in,the,Slocan and the other  rilrie in fVie';'State of Wd'shi'tigtohr''IM'  ores from these foreign properties are  largely: of ��� a silicious nature ������������ and are  used as a flux with the Granby ore.;  The receipts for September follow : ,  Granby, Phoenix............. 78,548  Snowstorm, Coeur d'Alenes   2,556  Quilp, Republic.............      642  Lone Pine  Arlington  Black Tale   "   Ben Hur      "    ........

Funeral of Axel Liljeoberf  The funeral of Axel Liljenberg, who  died in the general hospital Friday,  night of last week as the result of an  accident in the mines, took place on  Sunday afternoon, being conducted by  the Phoenix Miners' Union of which,  deceased was a member. The mines  being closed, the funeral was one of  the largest ever seen in the city; services were conducted by the Rev. S.  Lundie, interment taking place in the-  city cemetery. Deceased was a native  of Sweden and was 33 years of age;  a   wife   and   family of two  children.

From the comments'of  numerous American' journals, Peary  may be kown in history as the no--  torious discoverer, instead of the  -world's famous top-notcher.' "The  New-York Journal says: "Unfdrtu*  nately, Peary has not left opeh' any  question "as to his keen craving for personal and isolated glory. His own  account of his adventure makes it  plain that he could not tolerate the  sharing of an achievement, even with  men' who had risked their lives to  ���ajake his success possible.' We know  "' A? nothing more^ unpleasant,'nothing  ���' .le�� calculated to arouse admiration for  this country, and for Peary the indi  vidual, than his action in sending back  all the white men that had risked their  lives with him, in order that he might  be the only man to reach the pole and  share with none his glory. His conduct is like that of some actor who  should send all of the chorus and the  subordinate actors off the stage at the  critical moment and stand under the  limelight all alone."  The longr-evenings -have' again arrived -and the' antiquated illuminating  system has made its appearance at the  Great Northern railway.. As a means  of- superinducing the probability of  accidents, with', the passenger train  arriving after dark,-this lighting system  is without a rival, say nothing of the  "gloomy'' opinion new arrivals will  have of the city itself.

John Oliver, M.P.P., for Delta, was  the. principal witness at the session of  the Forestry Commission at Vancouver; Mr. Oliver gave a masterly ex'  position of the timber policy' of the  Dominion, suggested 'ways in which  the interests bf the people might be  better safeguarded than at present, and  -presented a valuable collection of evidence to the commissioners.  *|  Lord Strath'cona is evidentally fulfilling his promise to boost for Canada.

It is high time for Phoenix citizens  to demand the proper lighting of the  Great Northern depot. As long as  local patrons show their indifference in  the matter, just so long will the Great  Northern continue the "candle-stick"  illumination.  The remarkable vigor of Lord Strath-  cong- who toured Canada on the eve  of his ninetieth birthday, may be due  his simple manner of living and careful  diet. For the past 25 years he has  eaten but two meals a day.

Parke Channing, consulting engineer for the numerous Lewisohn  copper interests, and who has long  been recognized as a good authority  on all matters related to copper supplies and prices is quoted as saying:,  "The 7 monthly increase in the  world's stock of copper has not been  very large, and although consumption  is gradually increasing, production also  will undoubtedly increase for some  little time to come. This condition  will preclude the probability of any  material advance in the price of the  metal until the latter part of the year,  at least.< The present selling price,  i3/{ cents, is sufficiently_ close to the  average cost of production"* when the  iebst of renewals and betterments is  taken into consideration. When one  realizes how short a time ago consumers were clamoring for copper  metal at 25 cents, the present price  seems ridiculously low, and it certainly  cannot be expected to continue for a  very great length of time."

H   Rogers, turn-  ine alchemist, attempted to make of it  a precious metal, lie was not  the   vain  seeker of the philosopher's   stone  that  many friends fancied.    With zinc it is  the same old story over  again ; we are  wistfully looking for some  new   snurr-  of the ore before the   present   u-serves  are entirely gone.    Lead   lias   become  so scarce that rocks carrying as low as  , percent, of the metal are extensively  mined   nnd  concentrated.    .However,  the out'onk for mine   products  is   not  so-Bloomy as might be inferred.  Belter methods, more economical  methods, more scientific methods in  mining, in milling, and in smeltiiip  shall save us, and shall long continue  t0 provide us amply with all of those  products which make our modern civilization possible At the present time  the winning of the metals from the  caves of earth is undergoing one of the  most wonderful transformations that in  the history of the world any industry  has ever passed ��� through. Strange to  relate, the mining man no longer seeks  the fabulously rich ore deposits, as  from time immemorial he was wont.  A mine with excessively rich ores reported now at once condemns itself.  Only the unwary are lured by such  prospects. The keen and knowing  miner of today is interested only in se  curing low grade ores, but in very large  bodies. This is in the main, the real  secret of modern successful mining.���  From "A Mine in the Making," in Review of Reviews for October.  Important Discovery  George   H.   Cove,  of   Somerville,  Mass, has a solar thermo-battery which  is claimed to produce enough   current  in ten hours' sunlight to supply thirty  tungsten lamps for   three   days.    The  apparatus consists of a frame of  violet  glass,    like   a   large   window   below  which a number of metallic   plugs  are  set in an insulated material.    One end  of each plug is constantly   exposed to  the sun while the other is shaded   and  co I, and the rays  permitted   to   pass  by fe violet glass set up a reaction in  lhe special alloy used, causing  a  constant flow of current   to  the storage  batteries.���Scientific American.

For the current quarter Nevada Consolidated will very much better the  records made during the previous  quarter and will very likely show a production of fine copper aggregating 15,-  000,000 pounds at a cost around five  cents per pound, which will be the  lowest cost record known to the histoiy  of copper mining.  Fastest Train Vet  The Great Northern Railway has  put into service a new fast train which  will cut eleven hours off the present  time between St. Paul and Seattle.  Mail from the east will reach Puget  Sound cities twenty four hours earlier.  At the Spokane fair, a diploma was  awarded Newton VV. Emmens, M.E.,  of Trout Lake, for his exhibit of ores  from Trout Lake.  Several of the properties in the Slo-  can-Kootenay districts are shipping  steadily greater quantities of ore than  heretofore and it is learned that a good  number of the less developtd mines in  the district will make their first shipments shortly.  Two gold bricks, representing the  output at the mill at the Nugget mine  for the past four week'-, arrived in Nelson Saturday. Their combined weight  was approximately 45 pounds, and  their value between $8,000 und $9,000.  The Nugget has been .ship- ing for  over a year, its returns being very consistent.  As a whole the mining situation  generally is unusually bright throughout the interior. The shipments from  the mines operating are most encouraging and the fact that capital is being  invested more freely throughput the  district is greatly assisting the situation.  During the year the Alma M. was  bought by Vancouver capital while the  Van Roi at Silverton changed hands.

A gladiator  would emerge from the ring having sustained terrible cuts and bruises, yet on  the application of his favourite herbal  balm, within a few days he would again  be ready for combat.  As centuries rolled by, the secret  of making these herbal extracts w_s lost,  and ointments and salves made up of  animal fats took the place of the pure  herbal balm.  Zam-Buk, the great balm which during the past few years has revolutionized the system of skin-healing, was  produced by returning to the idea of the  ancients, that man's best medicaments  must be found in herbal extracts.  In the investigation which followed,  the necessity was seen for entirely ex-  ��� eluding the rancid fats and coarse  minerals from which most modern ointments are compounded, and sticking  closely to nature.

From the first Zam-Buk has born out  in practice what its discoverers expected  of it from a practical standpoint. In  four continents it has now become the  favourite household balm. Cheap substitutes made up to look like Zam-Buk,  and sold at so-called " cheap " rates, are  constantly being produced, but the  careful housewife, the mother, bearing  the responsibility and the welfare of her  ailing children, or the bread-winner, who  once wastes money on them never repeats  the experiment. There is no " cheapness " in nature. If one wants her treasure her price must be paid, and now  people don't waste money on "cheap"  imitations.  Zam-Buk, so pure yet so powerful, is  good for young and old. The delicate  skin of babes benefit from its application  and it is widely used by nursing mothers  for the rashes and chafings of very young  children.

The northern apex of  the globe has been photographed and  the men acclaimed as having unfurled  their flags over it are the heroes of the  day. lc is a great event and the story  of the conquest of the Pole will live in  history; and yet not a vital human  interest will be affected by it.  Times have changed. Scarcely a  pulse in Europe beat faster when the  Western hemisphere was brought to  light four centuries ago. News travelled at snail's pace then. Generations passed away while the New World,  piecemeal, was coming into view. A  century elapsed before the great fact  dawned upon the minds of men that a  redistribution of human enterprise was  to be the potent sequence of a geographical discovery.  The race to-day wants every nook  and coiner ofthe,. eavtbu to. stand, out  in the light, both for the good we mayj  gain from them and for the completion  of our knowledge of the little planet  we inhabit. Nothing less will satisfy  human need and curiosity. The attainment of the Pole signifies that we  can and will produce a map, some day,  which will'picture the whole world  just as it is.  We read of this final  triumph as the  culmination of three centuries   of  striving to reach  the   North   Pole.    But  the Pole  was never  sought, until the  nineteenth century.    Robert   Thorne,  Henry Hudson, and other old mariners  searched the ice edge for  openings   to  the. north, not that they had the slightest interest  in the   pole   but   because  they imagined they might find   a   passage to  China   across   it.    The   early  whalers were concerned about the Pole  only if they might new whaling grounds  there.    Some of them made good northings and two or   three   even   declared  that they bad been   to   the   Pole,   but  their stories will not dim the luster of  the present  achievement.    The  quest  of the Pole as a distinct object of geographical discovery   has   been   known  only for ninety-two years, and it began  when     the    British   Admiralty   commanded    Captain   Buchan,   with   two  vessels, to reach the Pacific by crossing  the North Pole.     The British   flag has  ever since been floated by most of the  leaders who have  struggled and  agonized   and died in thtrir almost superhuman efforts to reach the coveted   goa  There was more significance in Peary's  dispatch that he had nailed   the  Stars  and Stripes to the Pole than   appeared  on   the   surface.���From   "The  North  Pole at Last," Review of Reviews.
