One of the most remarkable pilgrim
ages in history Is now In progress and
will roach its goal in the course of a
few weeks. This Is the pilgrimage of
750 Russian children from Siberia,
round the rest of the world, the long
way, to Russia, to find their parents
and their homes.
Early in 1918 some 1,100 children
were sent from Petrograd Into Siberia
because of the lack of food in Europ
ean Russia. The expectation was that
this expatriation would be only for the
summer months. But the outbreak of
Bolshevike hostilities in Siberia rend
ered it impossible for them to return,
and ultimately exposed them to much
danger and destitution.
Finally the American Red Cross
learned of their deplorable condition,
and secured from the Kolchak govern
ment the necessary authority to gather
them up and take care of them, which
they did, and were already to send
them home by the Siberian railway
when traffic was suspended because of
hostilities along the line.
Meanwhile requests came from their
parents for their speedy return; so the
Red Cross commission decided on the
sea route, which involved the circuit
of the world. They chartered a Jap
anese freighter, the Yomel Maru, and j
started them out, leaving Vladivostok ,
July 28th, 428 boys and 352 girls. The j
natural route would have been the
Indian Ocean and the Suez Canal, but
because ot the long stretch of excess
ive summer heat by that route, it was
given up in favor of that across the
Pacific and through the Panama canal.
As the steamer was not so very
largo and not built for transport serv
ice, the accommodations were not
ideal, but every effort was made to
supplement them by special care and
emergency relief. The best of artific
ial ventilation was secured by means
of an electric blower that changed the
air throughout the ship every six min
utes, and a model hospital ministered
to health. There was, only one death
throughout the trip which was oc
casioned by the bite of an insect in the
The schooling of these children has
not been interfered with by wars,
rumors of wars or trans-Pacific voy
ages. While in Siberia school went on
regularly and It continued Just as reg
ularly on the voyage around the world.
They met with a regular ovation in
New York, where thousands of Russ
ians thronged to their camp to see
them and to welcome them as heroes.
Just about this time they will be
arriving at Bordeaux, France, whence
they will be forwarded as speedily as
possible to their homes, so far as they
have them. They will surely be heroes
and heroines when they arrive there.
It was in connection with this enter
prise that Miss Searight, formerly of
Kauai high school was employed. She
was gathering up the children and
shepherding them to the central sta
tion at Vladivostok as was set forth
in the Garden Island a few weeks ago.
