Discoverer' of the South
k Pole Talks
Says Dog Meat is Fairly Good,
Only a Little Tough
Dog: Ate Dog.
Tho Now York World says:
Capt. Roald Amundsen, the Nor
wegian explorer who discovered the
South Pole In December, 1911, re
turned last night from Washing
ton, where he delivered a lecture
and received a gold medal.
Speaking of his proposed trip to
the Arctic he said he hoped to leave
San Francisco In August, 1914, and
get back to civilization In 1920. Ho
plans to drift with tho Ice north of
this continent and be the first man
to go from the Pacific to the Atlan
tic by the northern channel.
He intends to equip his ship, tho
Fram, with wireless apparatus in
order to keep In communication
with the rest of the world and to
use It In his scientific work. It may
come In handy should the party get
In trouble.
"The Fram," said Capt. Amund
sen, "will remain In Buenos Ayres
about a year. It will be put In dry
dock shortly. If tho Panama Canal
Is working by the time she comes
out she will be taken through It
and up to San Francisco. If the
canal Is not working sho will be
carried around through the Straits
of Magellan.
a'We "will go directly up thetoast
to Alaska, where we will take on
board some dogs and maybe an Es
quimau or two. We will just drift
around and may reach the North
Pole, although wo won't try espec
ially hard to. That has been dis
covered once and that is plenty. We
Will study the currents of the ocean
and tho a'lr, which will be of great
help to weather forecasters. The
Tram will be equipped practically
ns she was for the trip to the South
"On that trip we carried 120
dogs at the start, but we ate some
and 'fed some of the others to the
remaining dogs. We got them In
Greenland and carried them to the
South Pole. We took them back
to Australia and now thirty of them
have gone back into the Antarctic
Circle again with the Australian ex
pedition. Dog meat is fairly good.
It Is a little tough, but at that it is
better than lots of steaks you get
right hero in New York.
"There was one peculiar thing
about the trip to the South Pole.
After1 we crossed the great Ice bar
rier there was no sign of animal
life. Just before reaching the bar
rier we saw great schools of whales
thousands of them in a singlo
school but at the other side of the
barrier absolutely nothing, not even
a gull. We built little piles of
snow every three miles and In them
put a piece of paper telling the ex
act longitude and latitude of the
pile. There are at this time lead
ing from the barrier direct to tho
Polo these piles of snow. We cut
out nbout 9,000 pieces of snow
crust to build them with.
There wero but five men with me
from the time we left tho station
until we roached tho Pole, At the
Pole and on the return trip wo
gathered much material, such as
minerals, corals and the like.
None of the minerals, so far as I
know, bore precious ' metals, and
tho whole tlmo I was within tho cir
cle I did not see any coal. It has
been reported there aro vast coal
fields on the hidden continent. If
they' are there I didn't see them.
Only once did we run Into the
Shackleton party, and then I did
not see them myself. Sorao of
Shncklcton's men called on the men
In my camp, more out of curiosity
tlian any'hlng else, I Imagine.
"As food tho men and myself
had hot chocolate and biscuits for
breakfast and pommtcan, granu
lated milk and chocolate for dinner.
We had but two meals a day. The
men ate two 'pounds of pemmlcan a
day tad each of ta'e' dogs was given
a pound until it ran out and then
we began to eat dogs."
Motor sledges do not nppeal to
Capt. Amundsen. Only dog sledges
ho thinks suitable to Ice travel.
"Tho Fram," said Capt. Amund
son, "Is practically unslnkable. It
cannot bo crushed. It cost tho Gov
ernment about $75,000, and Nor
way has been amply repaid by the
work that has been accomplished.
I do not know what the trip to the
South Polo cost, as I have not look
ed over the accounts yet. The trip
to the north will cost something
over $200,000, of which $100,000
has already been appropriated by
Norway. There has been some talk
of establishing wireless stations on
Point Barrow and In Siberia so that
observations may bo taken with
the apparatus on board tho Fram.
I do not know whether this will bo
done or not."
Capt. Amundsen, who laughed at
the Idea of wearing an overcoat In
a climate bo balmy as New York's,
had a very bad cold last night. He's
wearing his overcoat now.
Washington, Jan. 20. President
Taft has complete plans for the first
year of his citizenship after March
4. He will take up the duties of a
law professor at Yale at once, and
will not make a world tour in tho
interest of peace and arbitration, as
had been expected. He will reside
in New Haven, but for three months
of tho year ho expects to live In
Mr. Taft will leave Washington
with Mrs. Taft and Miss Helen, on
March 4, after the Inauguration of
Mr. Wilson, for Augusta, Ga., to be
come the- guest of that city until
March 27. Ho will stop at a win
ter resort hotel there. Charles D.
Hllles, secretary to tho President
and Mrs. Hllles, also will be guests
of the city of Augusta. C. P. Taft,
the President's brother, and Mrs.
C. P. Taft, John Hays Hammond
and Mrs. Hammond are expected to
visit the Tafts at Augusta.
Mr. Taft expects to leave Augus
ta In time to arrive in New Haven
at the beginning of the spring term
of Yale University. There he will
reside at a local hotel, remaining In
New Haven through commencement
late in June. This commencement
will be the thirty-fifth since the
President was graduated and his
class, that of '78, will hold a re
union. After commencement Mr.
Taft will go to Murray Bay, Canada,
for a three months' stay. On Sep
tember 3, 4 and 5, the President
will attend the annual meeting of
the American Bar Association in
Montreal. He has written a per
sonal letter to Lord Haldane, the
British Chancellor, asking hm to
attend the sessions.
From Murray Bay Mr. Taft will
return to New Harcn to take up
the work of tho fall term.
The President smilingly Inform
ed friends here that he had no Idea
of going into a law partnership
with anybody.

Of New Jersey Urged By
Gov. Wilson
To Legislature Wants the
Odium Removed From
State's Laws.
Trenton, N. J., Jan. 15. Presi
dent-elect Woodrow Wilson, In his
capacity as Governor of New Jer
sey, sent his second annual mes
sage to the Legislature which con
vened here. It was his last for
mal appeal to tho Legislature for
the completion of the program of
progressive legislation for which
he declared himself when he took
Foremost among tho laws advo
cated arc a radical revision of the
statutes governing corporations and
better laws In tho matter of draw
Ing juries. The Governor recom
mends tho commission form of gov
ernment for cities, and speaks
strongly In favor of economics In
the State administration. In con
cluding he expresses the hope that
New Jersey will ratify the constltu
tional admendments providing for
a tax on incomes and the election
of United States Senators by direct
vote of tho people. Tho Governor's
message was written while the President-elect
was In Bermuda, and
constitutes his only political writ
ing since election.
At the outset of the document
there Is a personal note of regret at
leaving New Jersey and an expres
sion of gratitude and obligation to
those who stood by him In carrying
out reforms. Almost without pre
face, however, the Governor calls
attention to tho laxity of the State's
corporation laws. With the hope
that New Jersey shall never again
be called "the mother of trusts,"
the messnge Is addressed to a Leg'
islature that Is, for the first time
during the administration, Demo
cratic m both branches.
Tho corporation laws of tho
State notoriously stand in need of
alteration, the Government says,
Thoy are manifestly inconsistent
with the Interests of tho people In
the all-Important matter of monop
oly, and as thoy stand, far from
checking monopoly, they actually
encourage It. The whole country
has set Its face against this method
of forming vast combinations and
creating monopoly. Gov. Wilson de
clares. "I am suro that the people
of New Jersey," he continues, "do
not dissent from the common judg
ment that our Jaws must prevent
these things and prevent them very
The Governor says the statutes
of the State should be amended to
provide somo responsible official su
pervision of the whole process of
Incorporation and provide, In addi
tion, salutary checks upon unwar
ranted and fictitious increases of
capital. No legitimate business
will be injured or harmfully re
stricted by such action. These
matters affect the honor and good
faith of the State and should bo

Another featuro of the plan calls
for the establishment of a home for
consumptives at Denver. To this
home not only consumptives but
women weakened by other diseases
will be sent.
According to persons who know
tho alms of Mr. Rockefeller, It Is
not his Idea that the "red light dis
tricts" can be stamped out entirely,
but he believes they may be les
sened considerably. Mr. Rocke
feller got his Idea after serving as
foreman of the Now York grand
Jury which investigated the white
s'avo traffic. Ho lias come to tho
conclusion that the traffic cannot
be stamped out unless somo provis
ion Is made for the women.

Baltimore, Md., Jan. 18. Photog
raphy by means of rays of light
Invisible to the human eye has en
abled Prof. R. W. Wood, head of
the Department of Experimental
PhyBlca of Johns Hopkins Universi
ty, to span in effect the 40,000
miles separating the eartn from the
' moon and solve at least partially
the problem of centuries as to the
physical composition of that satel
lite. This fact Is touched upon In the
last report of the Smithsonian In
stitution, just issued, which fore
casts great results from the invisi
ble ray photography, in which Prof.
Wood Is the world's pioneer.
i Prof. Wood to-day discussed tho
work which he has been doing in
the field of experimental photogra
phy. On his desk were dozens of
pictures, taken by him in this coun
try and Europe, showing the curi
ous results obtained by Ills method.
His picture of the moon revealed
to him that in the vicinity of the
high "crater mountain" known to
astronomers as Aristarchus, there
were large deposits of sulphur.
i These photographs were taken with
, "ultra-violet" rays, the shorter light
waves, which He beyond the limits
of the violet hue that Is at one end
of tho visible spectrum. At the oth
er end, beyond the red, are waves
too long for the eye to perceive,
and these are the "infra-red."
In this ultra-violet photographs
of the moon, taken through a film
of silver, which excluded tho visible
rays, Prof. Wood saw near Aris
tarchus a dark mass. Experiments
revealed that this could have been
reflected by no other substance
than a deposit of sulphur. His ex
periments were exhaustive and thoy
( proved to himself and the world of
science that his conclusions were
correct. j.
I Now Prof. Wood is contemplat
ing a series of photographs of the
planets by means of ultra-violet and
Infra-red rays, by which he hopes
to pierce the veil of mystery sur
rounding their nature.
I "While ultra-violet rays helped
me to determine the nature of tho
deposit on the moon," ho Bald, "thi
infra-red rays should prove of value
In another way.
i "These rays are practically ab
sent in the atmosphere. Consequent
ly a photogrph of a planet sur
rounded by atmosphere should re
veal that planet as distinctly as
though there wore a vacuum be
tween It nnd the camera. It is pos
sible that this might even allow me
to photograph Jupiter, which has
around it nn envelope of vapor
that complotely hides the planet."
I Here is a remedy that will cure
your cold. Why wasto time nnd
money experimenting when you can
get a preparation that has won a
world-wide reputation by its cures
