PE1RI PIBIUB1 HUE Arrive at St. John's All Safe and Sound and With Many Relics. NO IMPORTANT EESULTS Tliey Reached the Most Northern Point of Greenland, Hut Were Hampered by Insufficient Supplies and Lo-s of DogH.niid Made a Nar row Escape From Death. St. Jolias, N. r., Sept. 2l.-Tlie Peary relief steamer Kite arrived bore this oftcruo.in. bringing Peary, Lee and Ilcn-on cafe borne. The Peary expedition party endured niu.!i hardship last winter, but, undaunted, started northward again in April In an attempt to make a new recuid. Tliey succeeded In reaching Independence Bay, where they camped. Tliey were un able to make any pronounced adTancc northward owing to llie weakness of the party, both Lee and lleuMin being ex hausted A cumber of the dogs died from a plague common amongst them. The work of the expedition Is believed to be unim portant. INTERESTING DISCOVERIES. The Kite reached Peary's headquarters August 3, and started to return on Septem ber 1. They spent the intervening time exploring in the intwests of the Greenland Scientific expedition. Messrs. Dlbltsch, Salisbury, Ilychc, de Boutiilier. and Walsh, who were on board, survey ed many miles of unknown coasts. They alsodlscovcredtwolargemeteo rites, which they brought home, and another wcighingforty tons, wblch It was impossible to take away. They also found it inuios Bible to bring home Fenrj's house. Many siiecimens of detr, walrus and Northern animals and birds, flowers, lichens were secured, but the captures were not as extensive as had been expected, owing to the time for exploring being cut short in the hurry to return. The Kite visited Jones Sound, Cape Sabine and many ports south of Greenland. They had a pleasant and uneventful passage. On arrival of the steamer Kite, Lieut Tcary and Hugh J. Lee, with his colored servant, were found safe on board. They were found at Whale Sound on August 3, waiting for the Kite, and had only ten days previously returned from great overland expedition which prov ed a com parathe failure. . .MOST NORTHERN POINT. Independence Bay, Vye most northern part of Greenland, was reached early In June, but they were deterred from any great undertaking by insulficiency of food. They were obliged on this account to abandon the attempt to make further orogress; nearly all the dogs perished and the remainder had to be shot owing to the inability to provide them with anything to eat. Many Bcnsational stories are current among the crew of the extremities to which Peary, Lee and Hensen were re duced. According to the stones, which the explorers decline to deny, they were almost starved and were forced tu cat seal and other refuse to keep alive. The overland expedition to Independence Bav, His learned, was not only not as satis factory as has been anticipated, but came very near resulting fatally to Peary and the other two. They started late in Ma rch on this Journey and after reaching Independence Bay were unable to proceed morethanafewmllcsalong tuecoast, just bojond their formerstopplng place. They reached the top of a mountain and were unable to proceed further on ac count ot the precipitous nature of the de scent. During the trip anuncxpected contingency arose, owing to the fact that Lieut. Peary was unable to locate his cache ot last ear. He was unable to discover any marks in dicating it and was compelled to continue his journey without the amply food supply which he had reckoned on. The three men, Peary, Lee and Hcnson, -went at onee on short rations, husbanding as much food as possible bat before many days their sufferings became Intense and Lee broke down altogether. TERRIBLE SUFFERING. The strain had been so great on him that it became necessary to place him on a ledge which the other two drew. His Illness gave further-cause for alarm because of the fait that adequate medical supplies were not on hand and It was feared, during the first stages that he would die from ex nauslion But he rallied eventually. AH three owe their lives to the shooting of eight musk oxen, but during the Journey they had to sacrifice the weaker dogs and feed the flesh to the others for it was nec essary to sustain some of the animals, as long as possible to enable theirsuppllcs and Instruments to be brought along. Out of the forty nine dogs which started only one returned alive, and all five sledges were abandoned during the two days Just prior to the return of the party to Anniversary Lodge. Their safe return they look upon as almost a miracle, as during those last two dajs hardly a particle of food passed the mouths of any of them, and the strug gle to reach their home was one of ever Increasing suffering. When the relicr expedition reached An niversary Lodge the Peary party were showing marked evidences of their terrible txperiences. Lieut. Peary was 'extremely non-committal In regard to the expedition gen erally, and all of the party declined to express an opinion on the work done, nor will they state what new discoveries have been made.

London, Sept. 21. Lord Salisbury's hol iday at the Chateau Cecil at Dieppe has been taken up by the exigencies of foreign affairs. Ordinarily a single courier dally attends him, but now three couriers Incessantly come and go between the chateau and Tarls and London. wbre someof thclead Ing permanent officials have been obliged to curtail their leave of absence. . The chief causes of this activity are un derstood to be the further prospect of dis turbed relations with France and RussU and the Russo Japanese difficulty. The presence of Prince Lobanoff-Ros tovsky, Rnl.in minister of foreign af falrs.-at tLc French maneuvers, and the Russian Gen. Dragomlmrrs enthusiastic praise of the French troops and 1.1s toast to Russo-Trencb fraternity on the field of battle an1 union In combat, have com bined to produce the conviction ju Eng land that an olfensive and defensive al liance has finally been concl'idcd between France and Russia.

The Daily Telegraph holds that England ought no longer to hesitate about Joining tho Dreihund. The Standard makes a 6imllar menace, expressing the hope that the sword of England will always bo enough to turn the scale. The discussion In the papers as tohowfar the royal family Is English, has led to another question, namely, do the royalties speak-Engllsh?

Upon the Queen's marriage to the prince consort, the use of German as the larguage of tho royal family in private personal intercourse was confirm" The Trince of Wales has made English the language of hl3 household, but he does not insist upon Its exclusive use. In the Duke ot York's household English only Is spoken. In connection with the boom on the stoek exchange, the Pall Mall Gazette has been printing a series of letters In which it has been alleged that frightful corruption reigns supreme in nil the finan cial newspapers of London, and, to a large extent, in the financial columns of the other papers ot the city. One "writer who signed himself "Amer ican," and who sajs that lie floated a number of big properties on the London Stoek Exchange, sa)s that with the ex ception ot the great political dallies of this city, aud one or two well known weeklies, there Is not a paper in London whose opinions cannot be purchased. Another writer, signing" himself "Erg lishman," admits the truth of the alle gation of corruption, but retorts that it is not the place of an American to point it out, aud makes all sorts of charges, of corruption, by American promoters ope rating in Great Britain. "AN AMERICAN DUCHESS." Tho announcement of the engagement of tho Duke of Marlborough and Miss Consuelo Vanderbilt has.created a flutter of excite ment throughout England.

According to correspondence from Cowes several prominent yachtmen. including the Prince of Wales, haveformed a syndicate to build a yacht to beat the world. The pre liminaries have beta arranged but nothing definite will be decided till the end of October. The increase ot steerage rates to America Is coincident with arrangements for equal izing the passenger business between British and American continental lines. The re sult of this is that the British companies have withdrawn from booking steerage from the continent, while the continental lines have ceased booking the e,ame class of pas sengers from abroad.

SEPTEMBEE IS A SIZZLEB Terrific Hot Waves Ibwe Swept Ove Wnslilnston for Ten Days.Scorclilna Tree Leaves and Jinking Water melons Hesprout Few Prostra tions Have Been Heported. , There will be cooler weather to morrow. Socially and scientifically the weather of the past ten days has been both an anomaly and a phenomenon. ItB first effect was to kill the circulation of the Joke that the straw hat had been ordered in by the Weather Bureau. The second, remarkable effect was tbo re6proutlng ot the watermelon vines In tba rural districts. Another effect was the complete burning up of the few leaves left by the elm beetla and the web worm on the shade trees of the city. This September has, In fact, been tho puzzlqotthecenturies. Itfooledeverybody and especially those who had laid away the summer things for the anticipated fall and its styles. People had expected that about this time the September equinoctial gale would bavs been blowing great guns through the city, in Its place there has been the most terrific hot waves, with theirusual accompaniments of wilted collars, rivulets of perspiration, a rennaissance ot las t summer's swear words, and a complete reformation of the sum mer's backbone, which was alleged to have bsonbrokenbySergt.Dunwoody'opredccesso in the bone crushing business. AN UNUriUAL SUMMER. The feature of this season has practically been a summer with two backbones. The secod vertebral column has been reduced in the last twenty hours, according to the of ficial statements, to a thin spinal cord and will be completely out ot sight by Monday morning. Scrgt. Dunwoody gave out a whole cold storage magazine of comfort last night when he said that In all probability there would be cooler weather by to-morrow morning. There is not much relief to be expected to-day, and the thermometer may again .reach 90.1 degrees, which was the maximum for yesterday. When it is recalled that the hottest day of the late fiery summer was only 97.3, some Idea may be had of the terribly oppressive and unnatural September through which we are now passing as In a fiery furnace. The highest point above noted by the thermometer yesterday was between 2 p. m. and 3 p. m. The salvation from further discomfort Is found by the Weather Bureau in a cold wave which Is slowly moving along the esalcrn slop of the Rockies and heading for the South and southeast. Its effects have already been felt In Louisiana and eastern Tcxaswherethe weather iscloadyandwhero slight rains have fallen. This will within about thirty hours begin to affect but not suddenly the region east of the Mississippi river, Washington's share in the bonanza to be realized about to morrow. Then it will cloud up and there may be rain but there will certainly be a fall of temperature. Fall weather will then re sume its busincss-at the old stand and Itii not expected that there will be any more surprises In the way ot eccentric hot wave this year. A RECORD BREAKER. A special bulletin was Issued by tho Weather Bureau yesterday which shows that this September has been a record breaker. The bulletin gives tlie record for second ten days of September, There were maximum temperatures of 100 at the following places- Lynchburg, Noi folk, Valentine, Rapid City, North Platte, Dodge City, Palestine, Wichita, Concordia, Omaha, Sioux City and Huron. At Con cordia and faioux City tho temperature reached 101. At Bodge City, Abilene, Fort Smith, Palestine, Memphis, San Antonio, and several other places, the thermometer registered over 90 degrees for ten days. In Washington there were four days In which the tcraierature was above 90, and in the other six days or the ten the tera- ' perature was high enough to make the days and nlghtsextreraely disagreeable. The peculiar hardshipof thewcalhcrhers is that there was little or no let up in tho. oppression at night. Sleep dldained all kinds of wooing and caressing. A man or any other human being could neither pray or curse himself to sleep, but all that Is now over with the exception, poeslbly, of to night. Two cases of prostration were reported yesterday: JohuR-Stnkes, a stonecutter, was strickn with the hct while at work jesterday tbout noon. He was taken to the En.er reucy Hospital and then home. No. 331 C street northwest. His condition is not serious. G. R. Gamctt. a colored laborer, of No. 1631 Twelfth' tcet northwest, was over come by the heat last evening. He wa taken to the-Emergcucy Hospital. ALL SIGNS FAILED. Prof. Harriott Was Wrons Five Times Prcdictlnz Cold Wave. Chicago, Sept. 2 1.
