An tntrrestlng Report from Comm-lnre
Schley Cpun Hi Late Keller Expetfl
Wahixotox, Oetober 2S. The report of
Commodore Winfiehl Scott Schley, of tiio
expoliton under hbcouimsud for the relief
of the GreWy party, was submitted to thr.
Secretary of the N'avy yestcnlay. It gins
xgraphie n-rruire of the event! of the voy
age, Ihu t ie most interesting portion ot tlie
report la ihat describing the discovery and
nscuc of Greely and his men. Schley re
lates as follows thc impressive scene Insido
the Grcely tent: Lieutenant Greely was
found In bis slipping ba- hb body Inclined
forwanU and his bcail rotlng on bis left
hand, tlie book of common prayer open and
acid in his right hand, lie appeared to be
reading prajers to Private CjiiueM, whose
condition was most dtperate and critical,
lie was cold tn the waist all sensation of
bUHgi-r gone, and was Fpeechlcss and almost
breathless. II Is cj e v ere fixed and glassy
and indeed lfrs weakness was such tliat it
was with difficulty he swallowed the stimu
lant given him by Drs. Green and Ames.
Ills jaws liad dropped, his heart was barely
pulsating and his bouy trniiicrature very low.
This tender scene of the helpless, almost
famished officer consoling his dying com
panion was in itelf one that brought tears
to the eyes of the strongest and stoutest of
those tho ttood about them on the merci
ful errand of relief. Sergeants Braincrd
and Frederick, and Hospital Steward IJrie
dertuck were e rctnoly weak and hardly
able to stand, They were Do longer able to
ventBre away from tlieir citup to seek fiwiL
ner to prepare their simple diet of boiled
seals sin. nor 1o collect lichens, nor to catch
the t-lnimps upon vt liicli they liad to depend
to a great extent io sustain life. Tlifir
facts, - hands and limbs were swollen to
sRcn an extent that they could not be recog
nized. Tills indicated Umt the entire party
had but a short Ica?c f life, probably not
more than forty-eight hours at the roost.
Tills fact was recognized, by them all anil
had come to them from tlieir experience dur
ing that long ami desolate winter in watch
ing their dying companions, as oue after
another passed way from amongst them
forever, l'not fergpant Ellison was found
in his sleeping bag; where lie had
lain lielpie&s and lio--Iess for months, with
his liands and feet Iiozen off, Strapjied to
tne of thc stumps was found a spoon which
eoruc comjianicn hail put there to en
able him to feed buiix-Jf. HU physical
condition otlierwise appeared to be the best
of any of the survivors and this may be at?
tribntcd to ttc fjet that each of his comjiatr
ions liad doled out tn him from out theft
small allowance something to help him. On
account of bis complete helplessness to add
anything to his own by hunting about the
rocks for lichens or catching shrimp be suf
ferml nn waste Of strength br the exertion
Incident thereto This care o? Ellison was
, such as only brave awl generous men, Mif
1 feriug with each other, under the most des-
perate circumstances, could think of.
Sergeant Lang was very inrtch reduced,
though in somewhat better condition than
' some f the olliers. His office ef hunter for
tlie starving party had made it neces
sary to increase lib pittance of
' rood to maintain his strength that
, he might continue to battle for food and
, life to the helpless. In this case, however.
, the effect of this continued effort hail told
j its story on his wasted form. Shorter and
shorter jutlniryS" were mado in good
waather, while In the fieqilent nad ncatlier

, cutter ran into tlie bend where Long was
, seen he rolled down tbe ice covered cliff and
was taken into tlie cutter. He informed ,
Ueulenant Caldwell that tlie location of the j
, camp WRs jrts over the elifT. In the eae '
of Sergeant FJILxnt, the medical officers 1
were fearful from tlie first time; tliat his .
1 elianees of life were very small. As sooil
as healthful food was available and the
digestive factious -houkl be re-established
fully, healthful I -loot circulation would

to the injured torts and bitlamina t

strength should increase more rapidly than
