THE HUDSON BAY ROUTE.
Regarded as Feasible for Five
Months of the Year.
Winnipeg, Man.. Fe*>. II (Special). -J. W. Tyrrell,
of Hamilton. Ont., who has been engaged In ex-
DloHne the uninhabited regions of the frozen North
for twenty-tnree rsars. has arrived in Winnipeg.
after being for thi-r? years beyond the bounds of
civilisation. He has been four times through Hud
son Strait and five times has crossed Hudson
Say. as well as having undertaken several long
.ioumevs into the country to the weit of the bay.
He ssys of his experiences:
"Since my first experience in the Hudson region,
when connected as hydrographer and meteorologist
with the Dominion government expedition, in 18S5
and 18K. I have been strongly impressed with the
crest valu» of the Hudson Bay and Strait route to
Euro De. and 1 feel convinced that in the near future
:t will be the great outlet for the products of the
great Canadian Northwest, and. In addition, will
tarry much ot the produce raised In the Northern
States. This is by no means the first time that I
have said this, and I have written many letters on
"I spent one year on an island in Hudson
Strait for the purpose of ascertaining the possibili
ties of navigation in the ptrait, and in that time
I made four trips through the strait on the steamer
Alert, and from my pe.-ponaJ obv rvatlons on these
trios I am convinced that the Strait Is navigable
for five months of the year. The. hay, of course, is
always navigable, as it never freer.es over. This,
of course, does not apply to the harbors of the
bay. which do freer* over.
"It was part of my work, when connected with
the Gordon expedition of ISBS-S6. to survey the
several harbors which were entered, and particu
larly those on the west coast of the bay. with a
■vlow to ascertaining where suitable harbors could
be found to which to run a railway. The mouth
of the Nelson River was first surveyed, and was
found to be extremely shallow for at least ten
miles from the shore; the Alert, on which we were
sailing, was obliged to anchor that distance from
the nearest land. If any deep course exists, it i<
of such a winding and tortuous nature as to make
it unavailable for navigation, aa the sandbanks
shift from time to time, so that it would be an
expensive operation to make a harbor at the mouth
of the Nelson River.
"My next duty was to survey the mouth of the
Churcrill River, which is situated about a. hundred
and twenty miles further north. There an excel
lent landlocked Uarbor was found to exist. Both
of my curve? s have been mapped, and will shortly
anix-ar on the charts of Hudson Bay at the
British Admiralty office, where they can be seen
at any time ard examined.
• In the northwest portion of th* bay. in more
recent years. I have had occasion to explore Che*-'
terfl^id Tr.>t, srWcb is a narrow. d«ep fiord, ex
tending for iiearly two hundreds miles to the west
ward. 1 made an interesting Journey in 1900. dis
covering a river emptying Into it. Situated at the
head of Cheeterfleld Inlet is Baker Lake, which is
about seventy miles in lenjrth and twenty or thiny
wide. and thus far to the head of Baker
Lake, say for a distance of TTC miles, there is un
tnterrupted navigation for ocean-going vessels.
Beyond this to tlu> westward there is a magnifl
»-ent river which might be navigated by barges or
other light craft The valley of this river, known
rjs the rbclon. *«« found to be of great interest.
inasmuch as it not only abounded in game of all
descriptions, hut was well wooded on either side
for a distance of something like two hundred
g«ttes. This belt of timber, situated so far in the
interior of this so-called barren land, is bound to
lie of inestimable value in the future development.
Of the region.
"In regard to the mineral resources of the Hud
eon Bay region. I may say that in my residenco
«>f mor* than a year m the north shore I found many
indications of minerals of all descriptions, notably
mica, of which several large specimens were ob
t&lr.ed. On the west coast of the bay. from th*
mouth of Chesterfield Inlet for a distance of per
haps a hundred miles in a southerly direction, wo
round a belt of Huronic rocks, bearing indications
of copper and the other minerals found In that kind
of rock. Some distance to the westward from the
Hudson Hay coast extensive Iron deposits were dis
covered. Silver is known to exist on the east coast
in several localities, and silver and many other
Tnetals have b<^en reported from other portions of
"As to the fisheries of the bay, perhaps the most
important, or at all events the best known up to the
present time. have been the whale fisheries, which
have been followed for the last fifty years up to the
present time with great success by the New-England
whalers: indeed, to such an extent that the whale
known as the bowhead, which is the most valuable,
has become comparatively scarce. It has been the
custom of the American whalers to winter on Mar
ble Island, in the northwest part of the bay. while
Those who come in from San Francisco make their
headquarters on Herschell Island. They hunt these
whales and have carried away their products in
great quantities, amounting in value to millions of
dollars in whalebone and oils alone. The average
value of a bowhead whale is something like $10,000.
»Uk! when it is considered that perhaps a dozen of
these whalers are engaged in the business, each
year catching several whales apiece, it can be readily
F»en to what an extent the industry is being car

tioned the white whale or porpoise. These have not
been hunted to any great extent so far as I am
aware, but they exist In enormous numbers In the
bay. Standing on the deck of a vessel I have seen
the bay for as far as the eye could seee in all direc
tions, an undulating mass of white whales They
are valuable for their oil and hides.
"The walrus is also found there in great numbers
about many of the sandy shores and islands of the
bay. They are valuable both for their hides and
the ivory In their tusks. The hide of an average
walrus weighs about three hundred pounds and
at the time of my visit to the bay. in ISBS, when I
nad the good fortune to capture a few walruses
their hides were worth 12 cents a pound so it can
readily be seen that the- hides of these animals are
"Seals of six or seven different varieties are to
be found in great abundance in the waters of th«
hay, and the strait, but. unfortunately, tney do not
rind the Alaska, or fur. seal there at all. * It was
suggested some years ago. if I remember rightly by
Sir Charles Hibbert Tupper. that it would be well
to introduce the fur seal Into Hudson's Bay. and I
have often said, and still believe, that It will be a
profitable venture. The conditions under which
the Alaska seal and the hair seal exist are- r>rc
clselv similar so that I know of no reason why
the fur seal should not flourish if once introduced

THE NEW DIRECTOR HERE.
Sir Caspar Purdon Clarke Arrives —
Talks of Art.
Sir Caspar Purdon Clarke, the director of the
Victoria and Albert museums. London, who is to
succeed the late Genera! di Cesnola as director of
the Metropolitan Museum of Art, was a passenger
on the steamship Campania, which arrived yester
day. He comes to attend the meeting: of the board
of trustees on Tuesday and formally accept the
place. H« will be the guest of Robert W. de
Forest. Ho said yesterday on tho pier:
On my last visit here I went to Albany. You
will remember that the Capitol at Albany was
started in the Italian style The architect. Mr.
Richardson, desired to finish it in the <}othic style
The State allowed it to be finished in Gothic style.
That decision created a sensation, and men in
England shook their heads. The result showed
that the State was rijrhl. The Caplto! at Albany-
Is one of the most wonderful buildings In the
It is in just such ways that America is con
stantly going ahead. We on the other side aro
bound up in traditions. Here there are no such
I expect to come over in September. The work
of completing the South Kensington Museum Is
now under way. Part of the building was erected
thirty years ago. and we are now putting the front
on. it will not b* completed for years. I think
that if it was. 1 would never leave it. Tt was a
great temptation to stay.
Sir Purdon was asked if it was not so that rich
Americans were easily Indnoed to purchase spurious
art treasures and antiques. He replied:
That is a hard question t<> answer. Americans
ac a rule are not easy to fool.
The desirw to palm off modern work as antique Is
born of the great demand. All over the world the
than museum directors approve, for they have lim
ited means with which to purchase— and they have
run up the prices Now. not only are American
millionaires buying, but those from Africa are pay
ing as high prices as the Americans.
Sir Purdon spoko In the highest terms of J. Pier
pont Morgans art treasures. He said:
I have >een much of Mr. Morgan. While his Lon
don house was being built I had a fine collection
of his in the Kensington Museum. The collection
was gathered with good taste. The collection, which
is a splendid one. will bring every cent that was
paid for it. and perhaps a profit. And this in spite
of high prices paid.
Of the art dealers he declared:
The dealers are of great value, for they bring
to the collector things which would take a lifetime
for him to get. The dealer is tireless in bis quest.
and he brings to the collector the result of his
labor. He is an expert, and expects to get good
pay for what he offers.
It has been said that Sir Purdon expects to de
velop a system by which the Metropolitan Museum
will work in collaboration With the South Ken
sington Museum. In replj to a question whether
his leaving Engl-and was not influenced t.- his an
noyance ove r red tape, he recited:
The money comes from Parliament. The head of
the department is the Parliament chief. Under
him are other heads, and perhaps a sub-depart
ment. Now. when something ha« to be done those
below report to those next above, and the wholo
must be passed up from head to head, until the
chief signs his initials to the proposition.
You can understand that in work of this kin>l
things must be done quickly. There should be de
cision, and often a thing must be done almost in
stantly. Perhaps two museums and one or two
private collectors desire to buy the same thing.
While one is waiting for the red tape to unwind the
bargain is snapped up.
Sir Purdon would not say. however, that red
tape In the slightest way influenced his taking his
new place In America. His remarks were not
complaints from himself, but observations on ex
He was asked if there were not some "fake" an
tiques in the Metropolitan Museum. He called at
tention to the fact that he was not in a position
to discuss such a question. He went on to say:
It is to be expected that there are some. T>ook at
the 1-ouvre and our own museum, the South Ken
sington. Where there are very big prices involved
and such profits to be made, there are bound to be
spurious articles. These will sometimes find their
way into museums, but sooner or later they are
Some misrepresented pieces are often valuable in
As an architect, Sir Purdon asserted, he was
particularly interested in New- York's skyscrapers.
At the home of Mr. De Forest, last evening. Sir
Purdon expressed the opinion that. American art
would go ahead, but that IT America would go
more to England than to France its art would be
more sympathetic to him. Ho observed that the
landscape school here was a very fine school, and
that some of the best English artists— Sargent and
Whistler, for Instance— were American born and
of American family. *
Sir Purdon said it was twenty-one years since
he visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art. He
remembered well the DI Cesnola collection of
Cypriote antiquities. The museum, however, did
not then impress Sir Purdon so deeply as the Bos
ton Museum, which seemed to him ahead of New-
York on account of Its broad management in per
fecting- each department. The name '"Metropoli
tan" Impressed Sir Purdon, and he declared there
was no reason why the Metropolitan Museum of
Art should not be the museum to which all the
other museums looked up. A museum, in the
opinion of Sir Purdon, should be a living Institu
tion, and its educational purpose should be a double
one. There was no use. he said, in educating de
signers if there was no public to appreciate them.
Sir Purdon said that at the South Kensington
Museum £7,000 a year was available for purchases.
Since the museum started in 1856 the government
had spent £400,000 on the institution, and art objects
which cost £1.500,000 had been given to it. Sir Pur
don remarked that it was well to have people see
how ornament grew, how one style was developed
from another. For that purpose casts and repro
ductions were valuable. It would be a good thing
for the museum to keep in touch with American de
signers, and it would he well to provide a fund for
the reproduction of designs. There was no reason
why there should not be travelling collections of
casts that would go around, the expenses being
shared. At the South Kensington Museum such ex
penses were shared between state and municipality.
He also declared:
I should hop.- to see the museum in close touch
with every Important educational institution in
New-lork. Including your public schools.

*n confess I bad no little hesitation in accepting
an American appointment, lest I might be treated
somewhat as a stranger. Nothing has reassured
me more completely on this point than the way
the American newspapers have spoken of mv an
pointment. ■ '
I think I appreciate the great opportunity which
your New-York museum has under the presidency
of so broad minded a lover of art as J. Pierpont
Morgan, and my desire- will be, with his assistance
and that of his fellow trustees, and with the co
operation of the American art public, to make th«
most of that opportunity.
Sir Purdon expects to return to England next
Saturday. He will visit the museum as often as
possible this week. J. Pierpont Morgan will give
a dinner for him to-morrow evening at his home,

As a Guarantee on Liquozone. The First Bottle is Free.
A great deal is said in these da.Vs about Llquo-
Z °Mlil!ons arc telHnjj of the good it has done:
for one homa In five wherever you go-has
some one whom Llquozone has cured. _
This remarkable product has become the talk
of the world. In the past two rears the sick
of nine nations have come to employ it.
But so great a ffood could not be done to hu
manity without harming the interest* of a few.
The* consumption of medicine has immensely
decreased. The popularity of the few physicians
who cling solely to drugs has diminished. Ami
ir numberless homes, where Liquozone is in
daily use sickness has been almost banished.
These facts have injured some interests. And
a few of the injured attack what they blame
for the injury - They denounce that which has
done the good. .
The usual method is to insinuate that. Liquo
zone itself is a medicine; that, despite our
claims, it is a compound of acids and drugs.
Such statements are oft repeated: and we can
not doubt that some are led to believe them.
Our answer to all is this:
The virtues of Liquozone are derived solely
from gas. by a process requiring immense ap
paratus and' from 8 to 14 dnys' time. The gas
is made, in large part, from the l>est oxygen
Nothing whatever filters into the product,
save tho gas and the liquid used to absorb it,
plus a touch of color.
And. to emphasize this answer, we oflTer $r».OOO
to any one who can disprove it.
In this business, methods which are subject to
criticism are most cnrefully avoided. We per
mit no misrepresentation: no claims which have
not. been fulfilled. Our product is too vital to
humanity to be laid open to prejudice.
"What we say about Liquozone is tme. What
we claim it can do bus. again and again, been

■were held between President Alexander and Vlce-
Presidents Hyde and Tarbell yesterday, after
which a Joint statment was made by them that no
charges of treachery had been made by any of them
against any of the others. Nevertheless, on the
question of mutuallsatlon of the company there la
just as wide a breach as there was before the
meeting on Thursday, and it seems to be the In

stick to their gunß. which means a lively flght in
the committee which is to report on the plan of

had gone, over to Mr. Hyde's side, and that cap—
q ;ently Mr. Alexander's people were deeply a*
grlevcd, brought forth an official statement from
President Alexander, Mr. Hyde and Mr Tart«H
himself, as follows:
The statement that charges of perfidy and be
trayal of trust were made as the aftermath of
Thursday's contest for the control of the Equitable
Life Assurance Society in in Its entirety unquali
fiedly untrue and without any foundation in fact
Any statement to the effect that Mr. Tarbell was
charged with being a traitor to the interests of
any one connected with the Kqultable or to any
other Interests Is equally untrue. No such state
ment or charge was made at any meeting of the
directors of the Equitable, and the report in this
respect is purely the creation of somebody's imagi
PRESIDENT ALEXANDER'S PLAN.
Anything less than the adoption of a plan by
which every policyholder, no matter where he
miirht be. should have the> right to vote would
never be accepted by President Alexander, it was
declared In his behnlf yesterday. The plan fa
vored by Mr. Hyd»-, whereby only those policy
holders who attended the meetings should vote,
was unfair to the policyholders who were in dis
tant cities, and would result In the control of the
assets of the society by a little "ring" scarcely
less bad than "one man" control, declared the Al
exander adherent. This meant absolute danger to
the millions of money belonging to the society, ami
would be foujjht to a finish by President Alexander.
"What's the use <>f taking this question In unim
portant details? " asked one of Mr. Alexander's ad
visers. "What difference, does It make. In the end,
if one person holds certain views or auits holding
th«m? Take the problem in Its broadest aspect
it means the control of the assets of this company
either by one man. or by the policyholders— the
people without whom the Equitable could not
exist, the people who must lx> safeguarded. Now,
ii seems to me that President Alexander, with his
years of knowledge of the Insurance business, saw
what all this meant when he went into the flgrhi.
Ho didn't go into It intending to quit, and he
won't — his re-election shows that pretty plainly.
He's not going to get out, or to form any new
insurance company. If he did go. there'd be little
left of the Equitable but a shell. He, and the
people with him know that this company must be
rebuilt to a certain extent, must b* modernized to
be equal to other great companies, and they're
bending all their energies to bring about the. best
conditions for the society, and the people who are
paying their money into the society and look to it
to Drotect them."
Mr. Hyde and his counsel decline to talk, but his
attitude, as expressed by his friends, remains un
changed. He will work for a mutualization of the
company, but not for one which would put into
the hands of the people who could collect the most
proxies the control of the society. That would be
only "ring control,", he maintains. His friends point
out that the meetings of other companies which
have that form of voting are attended by the stock
holders and a few policyholders. who perfunctorily
go through formal business.
If a true mutualization of the company is to bo
reached, it will be "oy a plan which provides for a
retirement of the stock holdings, some Insurance
men say. This would probably meet opposition
from the Hyde people, and would present a com
plicated problem. The committee on mutualization
will probably hold its first meeting to-morrow.
While the Hyde men claim four members of the
seven, lively debates are predicted before any plan
can be adopted.

Mrs. John W. Cornish." of NY 722 East 13Sth-st.
was robbed of a $6,000 diamond brooch in front of
her home about 2 o'clock yesterday morninje.
When her husband defended her from the robber's
attack, the man flrt-.1 two shots at Mr. Cornish,
one ballet passing through his overcoat and the
other through his hat. The robber then turned
and, after a short pursuit by arid exchange of shot?
with Patrolman McKiern.m, of the Alexander-aye.
Mr. and Mrs. Cornish had been downtown. They
went up on the subway, taking the L«enox-ave.
branch to 135th-st.. where they got off and took
the 13Sth-st. crosstown trolley line. "5 he cars
usually make a stop directly in front of their home,
but the conductor failed, to give the signal in time,
nnd Mr. and Mrs. O>rnlsh were carried on a hun
dred feet past their house. . - . '■ - '". .
They had been conspicuous in the car, because
of their diamond Jewelry. BesiJes her brooch. Mrs.
Cornish wore several other pieces of Jewelry, while
her husband also wore Jewels.
When the couplo left the car a roan got off and
followed them. As they reached their house he
quickened his pace until he was beside Mrs. Cor
"I beg pardon, madam," said he, "but I must
As he spoke he grabbed the brooch from Mrs.
Cornish's dress. Before the man could turn Mr.
Cornish threatened him with his cane. Thereupon
the robber fired the two shots.
A patrolmr.n heard the shots, and hurried in the
direction from which they came. He saw the rob
ber break away and run. and followed him. He
could not draw his revolver Immediately, however.'
for he was wearing heavy gloves. When he suc
ceeded in pulling them off he slipped on the tee.
Getting up, the patrolman resumed the chase, but
the man had turned into a vacant lot and run
across to 136th-st. As the robber crossed this lot
he, too, slipped and fell.
When he arose th* policeman fired. The shot
went wide, and the robber turned and fired back.
In a lew minutes he was out of- sight.
Mr. and Mrs. Vivian Morals, of No. 7.V. East 135th
st.. who had sot oft east* of Brown Place, cave the
police a fairly, £"•'< description of the man who.
they felt sure, was the robber.
Captain Ward, of the Alexander-aye. station.
sent out five plain clothes policemen, all that were
available at the moment, and all the reserve uni
formed officers to look fur the robber. The rail
road stations in the precinct wene quickly guarded.
The alarm, with a description of the man. was sent
to every precinct in Manhattan and The Bronx.
Recently, Mr. Cornish had. complained to Police
Headquarters that pickpockets were numerous on

Ward came staggering Into the station with the
wire figure over his shoulder. - - . ..",...
"What in the name of goodness have you got
there?" exclaimed Wood. 'Where did you got it? "
Ward explained, and the sergeant, with the gruff
ness all gone from his voice, replied:
"Oh. I thought you meant that this man had" been
robbing a deaf mute when you said he was
'trimming a dummy.' Take that figure back us
quick as you can ur we will have to lock you ud
for larceny, too."
The prisoner, who Rave the name of James Ryan

NO BOMB. BUT A PRACTICAL JOKE
So the Rev. Mr. Hotovitzky Says of Report
About Russian Church.
The reported attempt to blow up the Russian
Church of St. Nicholas. in East 97th-st.. was. so the
pastor, the Rev. Alexander Hotovitzky. said last
night, simply a poor attempt at a practical joke.
Despite this opinion several patrolmen of the East
104th-st. station are guarding the church.
The "bomb" which was sent to the pastor was a
piece of lead pipe about a foot long, with on* end
sealed. Instead of a mass of intricate clockwork
with high explosive* and a rime cap, the interior
contained only a sheet of note paper On this was
"Beware! We are prepared to make trouble!"
The lead pipe was given to the young son • c
janitor, who took it tv ttu: pastor. The "bomb' was
wrapped in brown, wrapping paper und addressed ...
the pastor. The boy said he wAs play when a
young man came along, and said:
"Here, sonny, take this over to the church.'
The boy did so. and when he returned the young
man had disappeared.
Commissioner McAdoo took a serious view or the
