OX BOARD THE SCHOONER HER
MAN, via Nome. September 11.—
Buffeted by terrific Arctic storm.s for
two weeks, the schooner Herman,
carrying the Borneo expedition to
Wrangel Island, returned to Nome
Saturday, September 6. and was off
again Sunday for the North, to take off
Charles Wells from his Wrangel outpost
north of Siberia.
Huna Into Severe Gale.
The day following the Herman's
previous departure from Nome on
August 23, she ran into a severe gale
near the
ceeded in anchoring on the lee of
the little Diomede. That night, how
ever, the wind increased to an 80-
mile gale. The Herman's largest
anchor snapped like a fishhook. The
ship raced down into Bering Sea at
7 knots an hour with neither
power nor sails. Monday evening
tile gale lessened and we were able
to beat back to shelter in the lee of
South Head near St. Lawrence Bay.
Siberia, where \\. lay for two days.
The following day we rounded Ea>st
Cape, the easternmost point of Asia,
and headed into the Arctic Ocean.
There was a heavy swell coming in
from the north, indicating that a
great storm still raged in that direc
tion. Off Cape Serdze we encountered
heavy ice and thousands of walrus.
Hundred Bull Walrus Slain.
In spite of the heavy swell and
continued fogs the Eskimo hunters
succeeded in killing a hundred huge
bull walrus, which were duly loaded
aboard and skinned.
In returning to Nome Capt. Bane
ascertained that the Herman was not
needed to carry supplies to Point
Barrow.
When we arrived at Nome we found
the shooner Boxer had arrived the
day previously from Barrow with the
crews of the wrecked schooner Arctic
and the Bady Kinderaley.
We left Nome again Sunday noon,
the weather the best for over a month,
and with every prospect of getting
through to Wrangel Island.

Fear of Futile Oratory Keeps
U . S. Away, Bishop Tells League
By the Associated Press.
GENEVA, September 11.—Bishop
Fan S. Noli, premier of Albania, de
livered before the assembly of the
league of Nations yesterday an
ironical address of world political
conditions, which evoked a great
deal of laughter and some mild
demonstrations of disapproval.
The premier, who was educated in
Harvard University, talked for the
most part about the United States.
He described Boston as a city
situated somewhere in Ireland, "full
of O'Connors, O'Connells and Fitz
geralds, all of them good talkers, (
who with other Irishmen do all the ,
talking In American electoral cam- '
palgns.”
Bishop Noli wished the Irish re
• public had brought to Geneva some
' brave orators who might '“talk the
assembly to death about peace."
“There is no wrinder," he con
tinued, “why the Americans, Ger
mans and Russians are not anxious
to join the League of Nations. They
do not appreciate our speeches.
They know better.’’
1 Bishop Noli said the assembly
was nothing but “words, words,
words—which means in plain Eng
lish, hot air.’’
He said that everything the
league did sooner or later was
hound to go into the dead files of
the secretariat, and he argued that

Democratic convention side-tracked
the Ku Klux Klan question last night
when it tabled a resolution condemn

The action of the committee, it was
believed, would avert a fight on the
Klan question on the floor of the con

that rejection of the resolution by
the committee was final and the nna.
siblllty of a minority report bringing
the question to an issue in the eon
