EXPLORER HELD AT CAPE SERGE Amundsen Doei Not Get Fairly Start ed on His Trip on Account of Ice Conditions Severe lee condition! along the north coait of Siberia had effectually prevented Capt. Iloald Amundsen from getting fairly started on hla contemplated Journey nrroai the liolar Ire rap up to the laat week In Vugust, according to Information reaching Nome on the Undeberg llahlng tug Orion, which returned from a walrus hunting expedition extending a* far to the westward as 'ape Serge, says the Nugget Those on hoard the Orion reported Ihnt the Maud had been Ice bound a short distance from Tape Serge for tome time prior to their arrival at that point. Owing to ita smnl'cr sire the Orion was able to make her way utmost to the side of tha ex ploration ship and the crew* of the two vessels exchanged frequent visits. Capt. Ileklla of the Orion also took several moving picturei of tho Maud in the ice pack. The Orion party learned that the Maud had been ahut In bntweeu shore and the Ice pack almost from the time of her arrival off t'apo Serge. The Ice lay In an almost solid mass for a distance of approximately one hun dred miles north of the Maud'a posi tion and moved very little. This condition prevailed for days and pre vented any progress northward. During the latter day* of August, however, the Ico opened alone the Hhoro to some extent and the Maud was able to make her way to the wpNtward. When last Keen by the Orion crew she wan steadily work ing her way through the park In search of an opening to the north. The Orion encountered lee along practically the entire distance be tween Bast Cape and Cape Serge and was frequently unable to make progrcn* because of the Ice en croaching on the shore. The Maud was the only vessel encountered along that section but It was learned that the Polar Bear was somewhere in the vicinity of the Kolyma river, tar to the westward. Returning the Orion picked up one of u party of several prospectors left In the Kolyuchlan bay section by the Casco last year and returned him to Nome. He informed those on the Orion that the party spent th< winter and spring in exploring th< streams In that locality, but had found nothing. The Orlou succeeded In securing a considerable number of walrui skins and oil during the trip.
