IC.r. tons of thete materials, carefully
selected, wcro shipped to tho expedi
tion's base on Dane's Island. Tho as
censional power of tho Inflated bag Is
15,300 pounds. The weight of the ship
Iteelf and Its equipment and crew Is
7.000 pounds, leaving approximately
8,000 pounds for cargo. Tho gasoline
carried weighs G.G0O, which Is equal to
a power enduranco of 1C0 hours' mo
toring with tho 70 horsepowor motor
In full operation. At the rate of from
12 to 1C miles an hour this means that'
. tho airship will bo able to travel 1,800
miles In calm air, or far enough to
i carry tho airship from the baso of sup-
, piles to tho polo' and back and then
! back to tho polo ngaln.
What the Car Will Carry.
Suspended from tho bng Is tho car,
or basket, which contains tho motors,,
gasollno supply, cabins for tho explor
ers, motor sledgf pclcntlftc npparatus
and fond supply. This last Horn
weighs 800 pounds and la contained In
a chest containing 16 cubic feet. When
It Is Htatrd that this supply Is suffi
cient to nourish flvo men for 7C days
some Idea of tho great economy of
spuco being practiced may be gained.
Of course, tbo disposition of tho weight
In tho car Is such ns to Insure perfect
balnnco under normal conditions. Tho
gasollno reservoirs aro four In number,
two at each extreme end of tho car.
In tho engine-room Is placed, besides
tho motors, tho wireless telegraph ap
paratus. Tho car Is C2 feet Jonft by
six foet by eight feet In Its other di
mensions. Its construction represents
tho maximum of strength and tho min
imum of weight, being entlroly of steel
brenka down at Umcs and becomes ut
terly useless, but the proportion of
efficiency Is great enough to make au
tomobllo construction one of the big
Industries of tlio country. The Well
man airship holds the same relation
to tho possible hlgh-upced airship ot
the future as the automobile In Its
present stage of development does to
tho possible non-breakable automobile
of the future. It Is possible tlrat the
preliminary (lights or trials at Dane's
Island .may Indicate weaknesses or
faults; but If such Is the case tho fa

Mr. Wellman's Own Views.
It Is Interesting to noto that In tho
gossipy discussions of the venturo by
men who pretend to know nothing of
aeronautics nor the polar regions, tho
i two objections most often urged nre
tho two which caused Mr. Wellman
and his associates In tho construction
and outfitting of the ship the most per
plexity. Tbo manner In which he pro
poses to overcome ono of these dangers
thnt from fast, adverse winds has
been explained by Mr. Wellman. thus.
"Wo have already explnlned hot. we.
hope to make progress with our alr-
1 ship by means ot our motors and
'screws when the winds are favorahlo
In direction, and also when they aro
unfavorable, but not of too groat ve
locity What aro wo going to do when
they blow adversely and also too (
strongly to permit us to advance with
"This brings us to one of the funda
mental features of tho method which
wo hnvo adopted. It Is this:
"1. With favorahlo winds or unfa
vorable winds of relatively small ve
locities motor at a proper speed of
from ton to 1,7 geographical miles per
Jiour, with 12 miles per hour as por-
I hups tho mean speed.

Description of Ship.
A general description of tho nlrshlp
ta as follows:
In length It U 1C4 fccL Us greatest
diameter Is C2 ftot. Tho materials of
which tho bag Is mado aro pure rubber
and silk, with tlio top ot tho bag
a perfectly smooth surfneo, which will
not nccumulato frost, snow or sleet,
and thereby decrease tho ascensional
power. Dy a simple devlco provision
has been mndo for tho removal of anow
from tho top of tho ship.
Tho propelling power of tho airship
lies In three motors, of the Inner com
bustion type and using gasoline for
fuel, Tho combined horsepower of
the motors Is 100, although tho con
tract called for only 7C. Tho largest
motor Is 70 horsopower, and In calm
air provides a speed of from 12 to 14
miles an hour. With nil motora work
ins, the ship will bo driven 19 miles
an hour In calms.
The surfneo of tho bag measures 21,.
098 squaro feet, and tho volumo Is 221.
25 cublo feet. Tho hydrogen with
which Ui bag Is InllatoJ It nude ot
Tho powor from the motors Is trans
mitted to a shaft at either end of

blades, which offer tho greatest effi
ciency. Tho forward screw Is 18',
feet In diameter nnd the rear screw
four feet loss In dlnmctcr. Thero Ib
but ono ruddor, which Is nbovo the car
and below tho rear end of tho bag.
This rudder Is operated from tho engine-room
with n sltnplo steering ap
paratus. lielow tho car there Is susponded n
steel lifeboat, nonslnknble and noucap
slrablo, hut of very light weight. This
boat represents tho precaution against
tho chnnco of tho destruction ot the
ship or Its sinking Into open water.
Into It nro packed when not In uso tho

attachments of tho nlrshlp.
In tho construction ot both bag and

and only tho highest possible quality

Such, In brief, Is the nlrshlp In

tho highest degree of skill known to
