COTT BElCnED EXTREME SOUTH
The report that Captain Robert Fal
con Scott had reached the South Pole
Is confirmed by a telegram from Wel
lington, N. Z., sent by. Amundsen, the
Norwegian explorer, who headed an
other expedition, which failed to reach
Its goal. '
, Captain Scott started on his expe
dition from Port Chalmers, New Zea
land, on 'November 29, 1910. He was
well equipped for this dash for : the
farthest south, having made a pre-
Tions expedition under the direction of
the Royal Geographical Society. At
that' time he attained a record , of 82
desrees SO minutes, which remained
the record np to the time of XJeuten

many nations to attempt the culminat

Captain Scott took the route by way
of Australia and New Zealand. He

Capt. Scott made : his first winter
quarters on the slope of the mountains
and there remained until November,
1911. It was then that his dash began.
iils plan was to cover the distance re
maining by the end of December and
then Immediately face about and make
the backward dash.
- Besides his equipment of food, he
had, placed reliance on a score of po
nies, with 29 dogs and one motor
sledge in -making rapid progress over
the comparatively level stretches of
the foothills. Due allowance was made
for the death of ponies and dogs, the
steady depletion of stores and .the loss
of vitality of the party making up the
expedition. The telegram from Amund

Scott's chief competitor "was Captain
Amundsen, who was commissioned by
the king of Norway and the Norwegian
government. Amundsen chose the route
by way of South America. He left
Buenos Ayres toward the south in
19 10. He passed through the Straits
of Magellan' and then started for Ross
. Sea, the same sheet of water which
Scott had gained .by , way of the New
Zealand and Australian route. ' Capt.
Amundsen had no ponies and no motor
sledges, as his experience led him to
place all his reliance on Siberian dogs
The other competitors in the race are
Lieutenant William Pilchner. :of the
general staff of the , Qerman army
Lieutenant N. Shiras, of the Japanese
navy, and. Dr. Douglas Maw$on, Tepre
seating Australia. , ; i:
Lieutenant . Pilchner followed the
trail of Shackelton. He is a daring
explorer, having been one of the first
to reach Lbassa, in Tibhet. and much
confidence: was felt in him by the Geo
graphical Society in Berlin.
The Japanese explorer, followed the
Shackelton route Into Ross Sea, but
returned to Sydney, Australia, in 1910
to repair damage done his ship In .Ter
ror Bay. His second start- was made
November last, so that he is rather be
hind In the , racs. Dr. Mawson. the
Australian, took his route from the
Harbor of Hobart, Tasmania, aboard
the little ship, Aurora and took the
land route to the east of Ross Sea.
These five men and their parties had
been out of sight of the world for
. many months until the , first: rumor
came yesterday with the confirmatory
report that Amundsen had returned
and brought word .that his leading op
. ponent had reached the coveted goal.
Prom a geographical and scientific
standpoint, the discovery of the south
pole, while a momentous event, has

and danger as related to the north

been the regular field of open water.
Scores of navigators have perished in
the quest for the north pole,, but rela

pole. The problem has not been one of
reaching the pole over floating ice, but
of passing rapidly over, the snow-cov

Inch guns instead of the usual Dread

recently been started in Japan. These,

The attempt to construct battleships
in Japan has proved according to Cap

and the lack of technically trained
workmen In the yards. In confirma

ed by Attempt to Lyaeh the
Murderers of Sflventeta
Jacksonville, March 8. A mob of
fully 5,000 determined men gathered
around the county jail here last night
with the avowed purpose of lynching
five negroes arrested charged with the
murder of S. Silverstein.
The mob gathered downtown at one
of the busiest corners, but the fire de
partment was called out and dispersed
them by turning on the water. The
mob then moved to the jail where they
stoned the police and broke the win
dows in the lower floor of the Jail.
Entire Police Force Out
Every available policeman In Jack
sonville was rushed to the county jail
at 10:45 o'clock and after much diffi
culty succeeded in driving the mob
from the streets around the jail to a
distance of two blocks away. Another
mob formed in Dignan's Park but the
police and Sheriff Bowden, assisted by
military officers, declare they have the
situation in hand.
The first mob which formed at the
Jail was led by a plucky little German
woman who defied the police and urg
ed the mob of men to follow. She got
as far as the Jail door, when she was
nabbed by an officer and rushed in
side, while the police, with , drawn
rifles, pushed the mob away.
One member of the fire department
refused to turn on the water when or
dered to do so by the chief and was
discharged on the spot, the chief
among cheers and hisses from the mob
taking charge of the hydrant, but
very little water was thrown.
Military companies are on duty at
the armory ready to march on the
mob at a moment's notice.
Passengers on the southbound trains
this afternoon say that after some
heads had been broken and a few ar
rests made, the excitement In Jack
sonville simmered down and the mob

ABBOTT FOrXD GUILTY
Tampa, March 8. The jury in the
United States court late yesterday re
turned a verdict of guilty in the case
of J. J. Abbott, the Tampa Northern
mail clerk, wio was accused of tak
ing a registered package of $10,000
from the mails. The trial lasted all
week, and the case was given to the
jury at 2:45 p. m. Motion for a new
trial will be filed.
Abbott, his wife and two children
burst into anguished cries when the
jury brought in the verdict.
The pouch was cut open and robbed
as it lay on the transfer platform at
Tarpon Springs. The accidental dls-J
covery of the money in a hollow log
on Abbott's premises by rabbit hunt
ers, led to the latter's arrest. An ap
peal was taken by Abbott before he
was sentenced. He is a well known
citizen of Brooksville.
