T. AH FOOK Kahului be established at the point attained by the present expedition from which a ne.v expedition may proceed on at the next attempt. Mt. Everest, in the Himalayas, the highest peak in the world, has always in the past interposed great obstacles to the few efforts of intrepid adven turers even to gain a foothold upon its slopes. Only one definite and or ganized attempt ever has been made berore to scale its sides and stand up on its peak at an altitude of approxi mately five and one-half miles above the level of the sea. This was the British expedition of last year under Colonel Howard rtury which reached an altitude of 20,000 feet, or about 9, 000 feet below the summit. Bury's ex pedition was compelled to turn back and the work was taken up again this yeai- by another British expedition un der Brigadier General Charles Gran ville Bruce. Announcement to this effect was made last year by Sir Fran cis Younghusband, President of the Royal Geographical Society .f Lon don. No peak in the world has presented such difficulties to mountain climbers as Mt. Everest. These have been poli tical as well as physical for only in recent years has it been possible to npproach Mt. Everest from the Tibe tan side; the deep-seated objection of the people of Tibet, to foreigners pass ing through their cc nny made It im possible lor any expedition to take advantage of the easiest route, which is through Tibet. The Bury expedi , tlon, however, discovered what was re garded as the easiest way to the sum mit before it had to turn back. General Bruce, 56 years old, is a man of remarkable physical attain ments and of extensive experience in mountaineering. He was shot through both legs in Gallipoli but promptly re covered. Stories of his great physical strength, of his practical jokes, and of his other more serious exploits are common property throughout northern India, where he has commanded a Gurkha regiment for years. Towering above the frontiers of the hitherto forbidden land of Tibet and the remote province of Nepal, India, another land of mystery, the difficul ties in even approaching Mt. Everest have been sufficient to baffle explor ers. The world's highest peak lies in Tibet north of the British Indian bord er, yet, so far as known no Europeans with the exception of the Bury party have ever approached nearer than 60 , miles to its base and few travelers wb a On Waiehu Beach.

Everest's Bister peaks of the Himalayas have usually been made through Nepal be cause access to them through Tibet was not then open. The approach to Mt. Everest through Tibet is said to be more accessible and presents great er prospects of success than from the Nepal side. Sir Francis Younghusband announc ed that tho Tibetan government had granted his permission to attempt the ascent of the mountain by the Tibetan route. It was Sir Francis, who as colonel commanding a British mission to the. FVbiddtn City of Lhnsa .n 190.10I opened Tibet to 'i iliai loo. The trigonometrical altitude of Mt. Everest is 29.002 feet; its probable height is 29,141 feet. The next known highest of the Himalayan peaks are Kinchlnjunga, 28,225 feet, and K-2, or I Bride Peak, whose altitude is 28,192 feet. The Duke of the Abruzzl, who reached the top of Mt. St. Ellas farthest north in Arctic exploration tried to climb K-2 or Bride Peak in 1909 but failed because from what ever point of the compass he advanc ed he could find no way up to attain the summit At 24,600 feet he and hU companions were In good phj-s-ral condition although progress was slow and laborious; a thick mist warned them that to go on "would have been madness." This achievement of the Italian explorer, however, is the world's record for mountain climbing Bride Peak is in the Karakoram Hi malayas. Besides it and its two higher sister peaks, here are in the Himalayas no less than 75 peaks above 24,000 feet, 48 above 2T,0i0 feet, 16 above 26,000 feet, and Ave above 27,000 feet. Some of the notable mountain climbing feats of history and the year In which the peaks of the var ious mountains were attained follow: 1774 the Titlis, the first true snow mountain; 1786 Mt. Blanc's summit reached for first time; 1811 the Jungfrau; 1812 the Finsteraarhorn ; 1813 the Zermatt Breithorn; 1820 Pike's Peak; 1854 the Matterhorn; 1855 the Mounte Rosa; 1865 the Matterhorn; 1879 Chimborazo; 1883 the Cordillera; 1888 the Selklrks; 1897 Aconcaguay 1898 the Boli vian Andes; 1899 Sikkim in the Hi malayas; 1909 Mt.
