POLAR EXPLORATIONS. I must lcg I.ae to differ with tho pre vailing opinion regarding polar exploration, that th.re Is no commercial or material re ward commensurate with the expenditure of time and iw.ti.-i. In the Antarctic th, re are several prosjiectlve Industries, and much cf the future work has a direct tear ing utHin -omui-rce. There are seals, pen guins, and whales In abundance around the clrcumpohir area. Fur seals are nearly ex tinct. The various varieties of Antarctic seals have a coaiso coat of single huir which Is useltss as a fur; but the skin and oil are of considerable value. There is no reason why a profitable, fishery could not .e prosecuted, like that off the coast of Labrador and !re.-nland. The tenguins are not widely known to commerce, but the r fourths"- millions will surely attract cr-terpn-e and yield some useful product A' ready they are being taken at the Falk land Islands for the oil they possess.

ISoss reports having seen right whales, but a diligent search lnee has failed to establish this n port. From the "Helgica" v. ssiw no whales of this ari.-ty; but finba-k and b .t-t!e-no-e whales were si-,:n in gr at numb -rs. These are small whales having no lone of commercial alue. aid a somewhat i-tf rlo quality of oil. Itut the hunt tor a Mnul.tr variety of whales In Xor.vav ha" given profitable employment to thousaads 'if men in the past ten years. Whaling and sealh-g in the Antarctic cannot, however, be made to pay the enormous expt use of fitting out from Kitropo or North America for so dis tant a hunting-ground. To make these In dustries successful, iiermancnt Imsis must be established either in the Antarctic, on the sub-Antarctic islands, or In the south- rn ports of South America or Australia.
