Aubury said that it was his purpose to
send field assistants to the various sec
tions from which complaints had been
made, in order to verify the statements of
the miners. Should these reports be veri
fied, then the Mining Bureau will formu
late the necessary protests and forward
them to the Commissioner of the General
Land Office in Washington.
A number of these miners were too poor
to make the necessary contests, and the
State Mineralogist was appealed to in or
'ler to pre'.-tnt the wholesale grabbing of
the mineral lands.
Aubury said that he had received a
number of communications from the
miners in Sisklyou, Shasta, Sierra, Plu
rnas, El Dorado, Caiaveras and other min
ing counties, in which it was stated that
large corporations were intruding upon
their rights and that much of the so
called timber land was mineral in char

which w« brought back living specimens. The
following winter was more than ordinarily
cold and stormy, the average temperature be

occupied the spring' and summer of 1901 and
the early part of 1902. On August 6 the Fram
succeeded in breaking away from the Ice and
arrived at Godhaven August 18. We left
Cape Farewell homeward bound on August 28.
I spent the winter of 1893-99 In winter quar

was obliged to return and pass the winter at
Kllesmereland. A great part of the surround
ing region was mapped out. There was a se
rious Ore on board the Fram in May. 1900. It
was started by sparks from ' the funnel and

The expedition had another exciting ex
perience in a pack further south. Two
members of the expedition,' unarmed and
on a pony sledge, were set, upon by huge
white bears. The pony bolted and the
men -were defenseless. With great pres
ence of mind they clambered on an ice
berg and escaped on the other side to the
ship. Baldwin described fights between
dog teams and herds of walrus, and in
conclusion said: . •
"The idea of an open polar sea is base-,
less. We know that land extends as fa»
as 82 degrees on Franz Josef Land, and
from there I believe the pole can be
reached. I agre with Peary that the most
practicable way of reaching the pole is
by sledging from that point." ;
The expedition's start for home was at

necessary to charge the heavy ice drlft3,
break them with dynamite and saw a

Johansen spent their historic winter. The
hut was partly gnawed by foxes and
bears.. Dr. Nansen's record was Intact.
It was found in a brass cylinder and was
dated May 19, 1896, and written In pencil
on a half-sheet of note paper. Baldwin
