SGOTTDIESAFTER
REACHING HIS GOAL
Explorer and Four Compan
ions Perish in Blizzard.
AT SOUTH POLE IN 1912
Englishman Arrives at Frozen Point
a Month After Amundsen, the Nor-
Wcglan, Had Planted Flag of
His Country There.
London, England. Capt. Robert F.
Scott, Antarctic explorer, and per
haps 65 of his companions perished
In the Antarctic while returning from
the south pole.
Thoy reached their goal Jan. 18,
1912, about a month after Capt.
Roald Amundsen, the Norwegian, had
planted tho flag of his country thorc.
. Then they turned back toward the
bnses thoy had formed on their out
ward Journey, but were overtaken,
overwhelmed and destroyed by a
blizzard.
News of tho death of tho explorers
was brought to civilization by the
captain of the Terra Nova, tho ves
sel which had taken Scott's expedition
to the south and which had gone to
fetch thorn back after tho accomplish
ment of their task. A searching ex
pedition recovered tho bodies 'and
records of tho party. Only a fow brief
bullotlns were sent from the Now
Zealand port of OamaruY by tho cap
tain of tho Terra Nova, fwho related
aply tho fate of tho party and then
jeeeded with his vessel for the port
Lyttloton, whero ho should arrive
h'ursday. The first of these mes-
igcs read:
"A grave calamity has overtaken
he Antarctic expedition commanded
y Scott. Tho nature of tho tragedy
has not yet been divulged."
Says Entire Party Died.
Within 30 minutes of tho receipt
, of the first cablegram there came an
other, much more definite. It road:
"Capt Robert F. Scott and his party
were overwhelmed by a blizzard on
their return Journey from tho south
pole. The entire party perished.
They reached the south pole on the
18th of January, 1912. News of the
disaster was brought to this port by
a signalod message from the Terra
Nova..
An hour passed before further
news was received. The third and
last message from Oamaru read:
"Capt. Scott's party reached the ex
.i?t point whero Roald Amundsen
lanted the "Norwegian 'flag at tho
mth pole. They found there the
"agand tho hut constructed and left
lhfnd l)y Amundsen's party. These

tund on tho "bodies of the explorers

The 'disaster came as an utter sur

or tho community which has been
(equaled since tho death of King
lward.
It is now Itnown here that the dis-

Search Party Finds Bodies.
Having received -no news of the ex
plorers, a search party left Capo
Evans last October in two sections.'
One was beaded by Surgeon Atkln

McMurdo sound, where winter quar
ters were established on Cape Evans.
The members of the expedition had
a very arduous task In putting their
stores on shore and the work took a
week. However, they were able to
make themselves very comfortablo
there in houses, which they had car
ried with them in "knock down"
form. Thoy at once began their scien
tific observations. Provisions for a
three-year stay in tho ice regions had
been taken on board the Terra Nova
and these wero placed on shore.
Capt. Scott had with him 20 Siber
ian ponies, 30 dogs and two motor
sleds. The ponies, dogs and motor
sleds Wcro to be used alternately for
transport across the 1,500 miles be
tween the landing place and the pole.
It was arranged to cover ten miles
daily and it is apparent that this
scheme was carried out up to the mo
ment they reached the pole.
The first direct word received from
Capt. Scott himself was brought by
the commander of tho Terra Nova
from tho southern ice regions when
sho returned to -Akora, New Zealand,
March 31, last year. The brief mes
sage was in Capt. Scott's own hand
writing and said:
"I am remaining In the Antarctic
for another winter In order to con
tinue and complete my work."
Capt. Scott had Bhortly before sent
back a report to his baso at McMurdo
sound showing that on Jan. 3, 1912,
he had reached a point 150 miles
from tho pole and was advancing to
ward his destination. The dispatch
from Oamaru, New Zealand, shows
that in 15 days he covered tho re
maining 150 miles.
Tho dato of Capt. Scott's attain
ment of tho south pole, Jan. 18, 1912,
reveals that he reached the goal of
his expedition almost exactly one
month after Capt. Roald Amundsen,
tho Norwegian explorer. Capt.
Amundsen's report sent to King
Haakon of Norway read:
"Polo attained 14th-17th December,
1911. All well."
The report of Capt. Scott was des
tined not 1g bo received by tho wait
ing world until after his death.

Federal Troops Revolt and
Release Diaz From Jail.
ATTACK MADER0 PALACE
Rebels Are Repulsed but, Headed by
Nephew of Deposed Ruler of Mex
ico, Capture Arsenal In Which
Is Stored Ammunition.
Mexico City. Following a day of
bloodshed In the national capital
In which 250 persons wero killed
and COO others wounded, tho fato of
tho republic of Mexico under Presi
dent Francisco I. Madero is trembling
in the balance. Tho long predicted
revolt against tho present regime,
which has been smouldering practical
ly ever since Madero overthrew Por
forlo Diaz was realized when a largo
part of the federal troops revolted,
released Qen. Felix Diaz, nophew of
the former president, and Qen. Ber
nardo Reyes, another Diaz adherent,
who hud been confined In Belm prison
sinco last December and, with theso
two popular idols at their head,
descended upon the national palace.
President Madero, forewarned of the
movement, hastily summoned those
troops who had remained loyal to him
and with the aid of machine guns met
the Insurgents in front of the palace.
For more than an hour tho Zocalo, the
plaza which faces the palace, was the
scene of fearful carnage soldiers and
spectators alike being shot down by
the bullets of the opposing force.
Gen. Ri., s Is Killed.
Reyes within an hour of his release
was dead killed in attack on palace.
Tho first Intimation of the near
proximity of the rebels to the city was
received late at night, when a detach
ment, under the command of Gen.
Lauro Villar, suddenly appeared and
attacked the government powder mag
azine and arsenal. After a sharp fight,
In which Gen. Villar was killed, the
magazine was captured. From that
time on a state of anarchy reigned, al
though tho sleeping populace knew
nothing of the events until the next
morning when at 8 o'clock a great
crowd of rebels and Diaz sympathizers
appeared suddenly in tliazocolo. Soon
they were joined by the evoltlng fed
erals, their number including several
companies of cavalry. "When their
forces appeared to have reached the
number expected to join In the move
ment, they suddenly disappeared.
This was a cause of great apprehen
sion and uneasiness to those In the
uprising, but their hearts wero glad
dened in a' fow minutes by the clatter
of hoofs and, amid wild cheering the
cavalry reappeared with Gen. Felix
Diaz and Gen. Bernardo Reyes at their
head. The two leaders had been lib
erated from Belem prison, where they
were placed on Dec. 12, when they
were brought up to Mexico City from
Vera Cruz as prisoners of state. A"
consultation was hastily held and Gen.
Diaz took command of the cavalry
and Gen. Reyes of the Infantry.
Meanwhile, tho occupants of the
palace were on tho alert. For months
machine guns have been mounted on
the roof of the palaco and they were
soon manned. Throngs of persons
were everywhere and, as the word
spread like wildfire that the palaco
was about to be attacked, people came
running from all the side" streets until
the great plaza in front of the palace
was alive with humanity.
Rebels Capture Arsenal.
Suddenly from the roof of the pal
ace came the rattle and roar of the
machine guns. The Madoristas had
turned loose. Tho populace without
warning suffered equally with the
rebels. Around the palace wero
drawn up a regiment of Volunteers,
Btill loyal to Madero. These tho re
volting troops attacked and for more
than an hour the battlo raged. The
aim of tho gunners on tho roof of the
palace was poor and the onlookers in
the Zocolo who ran in terror in every
direction for a point of safety fell in
their tracks either killed or wounded.
Time and again tho combined cavalry
and infantry of the revolutionists
moved forward in an attempt to get
possession of tho palace, but tho with
ering fire of the machine guns was
too much for them and they were
forced to fall back.
But Gen. Diaz was not defeated'.
Instead of fleeing, as tho palaco au
thorities thought, ho proceeded quick
ly to tho national arsenal, which is
four miles from tho national palaco.
Tho head of revolutionists attacked
the arsenal and after a sharp fight
was soon In possession. Tho capture
of tho arsenal put tho rebels in pos
session of several cannon and machine
guns and a great quantity of small
arms and ammunition. Fighting was
abandoned temporarily and Gen. Diaz,
attended by a largo escort, rode to
tho Paseo Do La Ieforma, tho princi
pal boulevard of tho city, whoro ho
addressed largo crowds.

WILLIAM ROCKEFELLER CHOKES
WHILE BEING QUESTIONED.
Counsel for Pujo Investigating Com
mittee Stops Probe When Witness
Begins Coughing Violently.
Jekyl Island, Ga. The shadow
of death came between William
Rockefeller and tho Pujo money trust
Investigators.
Face to face with the oil magnate,
brother of John D. Rockefeller, after
a pursuit which lasted over a year.
Chairman Pujo and Samuel Untermy
er, counsel to the committee, were
compelled to-abandon a victory which
was in their grasp through the very
grave danger that the long sought wit
ness might die under the pressure of
cross-examination.
Submitting to the Jurisdiction of the
committee, Mr. Rockefeller received
Chairman Pujo and Mr. Untermyer in
the library of his apartments here.
Ho was practically voiceless. With
Dr. Chappell at his side, however, the
examination was begun after the man
who is declared to be richer even than
his famous brother had lifted a palsied
hand to subscribe to the oath.
But 12 minutes elapsed. Mr. Unter
myer had been abfe to ask but a sin
gle question germane to the Investiga
tion when the witness was attacked
by a violent fit of coughing. His
whole frame trembled; he became ab
solutely speechless.' The blood rushed
to his face, which turned purplo and
crimson. To all who looked on, it
seemed evident that a crisis was at
hand. Dr. Chappell hastily adminis
tered an opiate, under which Mr.
Rockefeller partially revived, but be
fore the examination could be resumed
the doctor Interposed.
"I strongly urge you not to proceed,"
he said, "as in doing so you are cer
tainly endangering his life at the
present moment."
Chairman Pujo and Mr. Untermyer
exchanged hasty glances. By this
time Mr. Rockefeller had fallen back
into his chair in a state of almost com
plete rollapse. Dr. Chappell was
sworn and amid deep silence, whilo
every eye was rivefed upon tho wit
ness patient, he solemnly swore that
a continuation of the examination
which had brought Mr. Rockefeller to
the verge of a spasm of the larynx
which might choke him to death. Tho
patient was appealed to and whisper
ing feebly into the ear of tho official
stenographer. Ho declared that he felt
in such a condition that he thought It
unsafe to proceed further.
It was the end. Chairman Pujo de
clared the examination terminated.
Whatever information William Rocke
feller could have contributed to tho
investigation will remain sealed up In
his own mind. The famous copper
deal will lie burled in the unsavory
past. It Is not too much to say oven
that William Rockefeller has passed
from tho field of active life.
Following the dramatic termination
of tho examination, which also ends
the taking df testimony in the money
inquiry, Chairman Pujo issued the fol
lowing official statement:
"Mr. Rockefeller's condition is sim
ply pitiable. He not only shakes like
a leaf all over his body, but after tho
first question ho began to cough con
vulsively and it was evident ho was
laboring under great excitement and
that ho was on tho vorgo of collapse.
Ho had to slowly whisper tho few
words ho spoko into tho ear of tho
stenographer, who sat besido him.
This ho did with tho greatest dim
culty. Such a thing as an examina
tion would bo Impossible. As soon as
Mr. Chappell Intervened and request
ed that tho hearing proceed no furthor
on the ground stated by him, Mr. Un
termyer and I felt that It would bo
dangerous and inhuman to go furthor
and I thoreupon ordered the suspen
sion of tho examination."

Taft Recommends That Gov
ernment Lease Roads.
MESSAGE TO CONGRESS
Project for Alaska Coal Lands Involves
Expenditure of $35,000,000 for 733
Miles of Track Comprising
Two Systems.
Washington, D. C. Recommending
government constructlon of 733
miles of railroads, opening the vast
Bering and Matanuska coal fields of
Alaska, at a cost of $35,000,000, Presi
dent Taft, In a special message to
congress, transmitted the report of
tho Alaskan railway commission.
Private operation of, tho govern
ment's proposed railroads under lease,
the president said he believed was tho
proper solution of tho difficulties in
Alaska.
Two Independent Roads.
Two independent railway systems
ono connecting tho Yukon river valley
and tho Tanana river, a tributary ,of
the Yukon, with tidewater, and the
other dovoted to tho development and
needs of the Kuskowlm and Susitna
rivers are recommended. Quoting
the commission, the president Said:
"The best available route for tho
first railway system is that which
leads from Cordova by way of Chit
ina to Fairbanks, and the best avail
able route for the second is that which
leads from Seaward, around Cooks in
let to the Iditarod. Tho first should
be connected with the Bering coal
field and the sdcond with the Matan
uska coal field. .
Bullrl and Lose Systems.
"The necessary inference from the
entire report," the president contin
ued, "is that In the judgment of tho
commission its recommendations can
certainly be carried out only if the
government builds or guarantees tho
construction cost of the railroads
recommended. If the government Is
to make this guarantee, it should own
the roads, the cost of which it really
pays. This is true whether the gov
ernment Itself should operate the
loads or should provide for their op
eration by lease or operating agree
ment. "I am very much opposed to gov
ernment operation, but I believe gov
ernment ownership with private oper
ation under lease is the proper so
lution." BOY IN PRANK KILLS BROTHER
Lad Intending Only to Give Kin a
Scare Discharges Gun He Thought
Was Not Loaded.
Wilkesbarre, Pa. "Lying in am
bush," intending to give his brother
a scare, Fred Shlber, 11, shot and in
stantly killed his brother, Warren, 10,
in their home. The parents of tho
children were In Philadelphia when
the tragedy occurred.
Warren, preparing for school, asked
his brother to wait for him. Fred,
saying ho would, went to a room on
tho second floor while Warren, on the
same floor in another room, continued
his preparation." Finally, Warren
called that he was ready and started
down the hall. As he passed the door
of the room In which Fred was wait
ing and which is at the top of the
stairs, a shot rang out. Warren
dropped and then rolled down 'the
stairs.
'Fred afterward said he picked up a
rifle while waiting for his brother and,
believing it was. not loaded, Intended
to scare him as he passed tho door.
When he saw his brother he leveled
the gun and pulled tho trigger.
He then left the house, and ran to
school, not telling of tho affair.

What She Meant
"So you think I smoke too much?"
ho asked, just to keep up a conversa
tion that seemed to be languishing.
"Not at all," she answered, not very
skillfully concealing a yawn.
"You said you thought so."
"Pardon mo. I don't think you aro
smoking too much."
"Didn't you say that I'd dio if I
didn't cut It down?"
"Yes that's what I said."
It took him a long tlmo to get It,
and then ho was quite angry.
Surprise for Mother.
A Chicago school teacher tells with
great gusto of the shrewd little "col

excuse for tardiness. "I couldn't help

shrilly. "Somepln happened to us las'

"Not one of those pictures looks

The photographer tried in every way
to pacify her, but finding this an im
possibility, lost control of his temper:
"Madam!" ho exclamed, "did you

"Yes."
"Well! It does not say 'cleaning,
