rived in tho United States at noon to

Washington to tell an American -audi-enco
for tho first timo of his Antarctic
"I was walking ahead of the little
caravan,'" said Captain Amundsen, in
telling of the Unal reaching of tho south
pole. "AJ1 of a sudden I heard all tho
sledge drivers cry out in uniBon. I
.knew what it meant. It moaufc that IVo

This he related in the Eamo quiot
tone which characterized tho othor
j parts of his lecture. It was greeted,
however, with salvos of applause. Cap-

dress to other explorers, amonp them
Iiear Admiral Peary, Sir Ernest Shack
leton, Captain Scott and others.
ff0n December 13, 10U, we had
reached 89 degrees 37 minutes south,"
said Captain Amundsen, "and I figured
that on the next day we would reach
the goal. I think wo slept less than

as we went along. It was n moment
of solemnity when the five of its who
made tho final stages of the trip stood

He then described how the members
of the little party went in various di
rections around the pole, making obser
vations hourly, aud how they crossed
several times over tho small "square of
territorj' ibcy marked off, so as to be
sure that they had come very close to
tho exact pole. They remained at this
point three days before starting on
their return toward the sturdy 3?ram,
which hud carried them as far toward
the pole as navigatiou would allow. Af
ter his lecture Captain Amundsou vis
ited the National Press club, where tic
spoke briefly and was introduced to the

I Given by the Department
I WASHINGTON, tfan. 10. Soaring
prices of foodstuffs arc pictured in a
new set of figures compiled by the
United Slates department of labor from
Its Investigation of the cost of living in
thlrty-nluQ American cities.
Between Aupust, 1911, and August,
1012, only two things decreased in price
potatoes and sugar, ilcanwhlle, every-
thing else advanced.
In Boston sirloin steak had advanced
24 per cent; In Buffalo, 10 per cent; in
Atlanta, S per cent; in Chicago, 19 per
cent, and in Birmingham, 15 per cent.
But the HgureB showing the advance in
prices during the last ten years show the

I ENGINEER HAD
TOO SHORT REST
Had AIbo Been Drinking the
Night Before; Blame Placed
for Lackawanna Wreck.
AX.BANT. Jan. 10. The engineer had
been drinking the night before and had
wlept less than three hours, hence the
wreck on the Delaware, Lacknwanna &
Western railroad at Coming, N. Y last
Independency day, In which forty persons
lost their lives and seventy-five others
The state public service commission so
declared today after a careful investiga
tion. William H. Schroeder, the engineer thus
accused, was Indicted for manslaughter
In Steuben county, but never 'brought
to trial, the Indictment being dismissed
upon the motion of the district attor
ney. "Th primary cause of the wreck,"
reads the commission's report, "was the
entire failure of Engineer Schroeder to
observe signals. Tho train Into which he
ran wae protected by a full-atop signal
J50 feet east of tho rear of the train
by a flagman 2550 feet east, and by a
caution signal nearly -InOO feet east. All
three signals wero disregarded."
The investigation developed Unit the 1
engineer had disregarded the duty of'
taking proper real berore attempting the
important work of running the train. He
acknowledged drinking tho evening be
fore the accident.
"The action of the engineer should be
considered . as much an offense agalnut
the Brotherhood of Locomotlvo Engl
' ueers, of which ho Ib a member, as it
is against the railway and the public,"
aays tho report.

NEW YORK, Jan. 10. CIprlanc- Castro, i
former president of Venezuela, who de
clares he Is bolng prevented unlawfully
from entertlng tho United States, had
his day In courl today, but was de
feated, temporarily at least. In his at
tempt to land and Ib back at Kills Island
Judge Holt announced his intention of
dicmiEElng the writ of habena corpus
sued out In Castro's behalf, but held
Ills decision In abeyance until ho could
settle whether ho had authority to re
lease Castro on ball until tho Immigra
tion authorities dotcrmlnc the right of
the Venezuelan to remain In this coun
try. Judge Holt probably will render a
Judge Holt upheld the contention of
District Attorney WIs that Castro's ex
amination by the Immigration authorltes
had not been completed and for that rea
son the court had no nuthorlty to Inter
fore. Castro's counsel held that tho ex
amination had been completed. George
G. Battle, counsel for Castro, declared
hlti client had been denied the right to
confer with counsel except In the pres
ence of an immigration officer.
"is'o law in this country says that
counsel shall not havo access to hl client
without a. government orflccr standing
over him," commented Judge Holt. "Un
der these circumstances a. man's deten
tion certainly would bo illegal."
Ttr. Battle, in commenting tonight on
the ruling of the courl. declared that
Castro "had accomplished the objects for
which the writ was sued out."
"Judge Holt has distinctly ruled," he
said, "that General Castro 6hall be en
titled to consult freely with his counsel
and that the immigration authorities
must proceed promptly and in a legal
manner by a special board of Inquiry to
determine whether any Just caune exists
for excluding him from thin country."

Insist That Nominations Sent
to Senate Be Taken Up in
WASHINGTON1. Jan. 10. Efforts by
Democratic senato leaders to make an
agreement with the Republican, forces
for a joint committee to go over Presi
dent Taft's recent appointments and se
lect such ones as should be confirmed by
tho senate. Immediately met with fail
The attempt at a compromise was tho
result of a meeting of the special com
mittee appointed by the Democratic cau
cus In December, to evolve a method of
handling the hundreds of appointments
that have been sent In by the president
since December -'. Democratic loaders
Informally proposed to the Republicans
today that five members bo selected by
each party, to lake up the task of "weed
ing out" the pending nominations. A
number of Rnpubllcanu were called to
gether to consider the proposal, and
promptly rejectod It.
The outcome of the failure at a com
promise will be a renewal of the light
between the two parties next week. It
Is expected that an executive session of
tho senate will be held Tuesday or Wed
nesday. The Republican forces then will
insist that nominations be taken up In
I their regular order and that no discrimi
nation be shown against any of tho Taft
appointment. A. Democratic caucus will
be held tomorrow to determine what ac
tion shall be taken. Republican sena
tors declared today there would bo no
attempt to filibuster against the Demo
crats or to keep the senate In continu
ous executive session; but tha.t an at
tempt would be made at once to force an
Issue, with the Democrats as to the meth
od of procedure upon the various ap
pointments. "To submit the question of nomina
tions to a committee would require the
holding of Republican caucuses." said.
Senator Smoot tonight. "That was not'
practicable and Wn concluded for that
and other reasons that the preferable
plan wan to allow the nominations to
come before the entire senate In the
usual way. We shall Insist that tho
calendar be taken up In the order in
which the nominations appear."
The refusal of tho Republican's to make
any compromise upon the Taft appoint
ments will have the effect of halting tho
action that tho Democratic leaders had
agreed upon to support for the confirma
tion of army, navy and diplomatic appointments.
