LONDON, Feb. IT,.—Commander E. R.
G. Rvans sends further particulars in
a dispatch from Christchurch. X. Z.. of
the ill-fated British Antartic expedi
tion.
The party under Captain Scott, after
leaving Commander Evans January 4.
3912. inarched an average of 12 miles
daily and reached the pole on January
17.
Captain Scott's observations by the
theodolite on January 18 fixed the pole
within' half a mile of Amundsen's ob
servations.
The Scott party had followed
Amundsen's track and found his camp
within three miies of the pole.
Several photographs of Scott and his
comrades at the pole were obtained.

Doctor Atkinson la authority for

The searching party employed seven
mules which hauled heavier weights

than ponies.
A dispatch to the Paily Mali from
Chrlßtchurch says that full details of
Scott's journey will reveal a still more
glorious page of history when they are
published than the brief official narra-
tive.
"It is stated," says the Daily Mail,
"that Petty Officer Evans was assisted

his death, and that every ounce of food
Mas exhausted long before death came
to Scott's party.
"Only a small quantity of tea was

"Members of the expedition indicate
that the possibility of disappointment

the return journey.
••While descending Beardmore glacier
the Ice was found to be terribly rough.
and many obstructions 10 to 12 feet
high had to be climbed, resulted

strained.
••Commander Evan* denies that the
explorers died of scurvy. He sn.vs that
death was due to exposure and weak
ness.

privations they underwent in an Igloo,
« I ere they led a primitive existence
for six and a half months. They had a
regular physical drill. Their only liter
ature was 'David Cnpperfield,' of
which one chapter was read aloud
daily.
•Tt is doubtful whether any of the
difficulties of Scott and his party will

expedition appears in book form. Sur
geon Atkinson, wh« organized the
search party, refused to giv any
information beyond the official narra
tive.
'The steamer Aorangl still is out of
the range of wireless communication,

SEATTLE TIMES
BUILDING BURNS;
LOSS IS $400,000
Files of Newspaper From
1881 to Present Time De
stroyed; Other Struc
tures Damaged
FLAG UNSCORCHED
FLIES OVER RUINS
Same Fire Chief Sought to
Save Minneapolis Tribune,
Then Owned by Blethen
SEATTLE, FeK 13.—The $400,000 fire
today that destroyed the upper floors
of the Times and Denny buildings and
ruined the contents of the lower floors
except the newspaper presses, caused
the complete wreck of 18 linotype ma
chines and burned the files of the daily
and Sunday Times from ISBI to the
present time—an irreparable loss.
The entire fire department, under
command of Chief Frank L. Stetson,
fought the flames.
Stetson was chief of the Minneapolis
fire department when the Mineapolis
Tribune building was burned Novem
ber 30, 1889, with loss of seven lives.
The Minneapolis Tribune was owned
by Colonel Alden .7. Blethen, now pro
prietor of the Seattle Times.
The principal losses today are:
Times Printing company. $150,000;
George Jf. Bartell. druggist. $75,000;
Denny building:, $50,000; Merchants'
Printing company, $12,000; Bebb &
Mandel, architects. $12,000; Shull's
candy store, $10.000.
The big American flag that waved
above the flames on the Times building
was not even scorched and flew all day,
above the ruins.
The fire was discovered a few min
utes before 4 O'clock, and before the
alarm could he turned in the flames
had spread throughout the upper por
tions of the Times building. Only a
few employes were at work at the time
and all escaped safely.
The fire spread with great rapidity
and for a time it appeared that both
the Times and the Denny buildings
would be completely destroyed.
After nearly two hours' hard work
the fire was confined to the two upper
floors of the Times building, contain
ing the composing and editorial rooms,
and the three top floors of the Denny
building, occupied by offices.
The Times was issued today from the
plant of the PoSt-Tntelligencer.
The Times building was owned b>y
M. and K. Gottstein and* the Denny
building by the. Sarah Denny estate.
The Times was about to begin con
struction of a permanent home in West
lake avenue. The loss was fully cov
ered by insurance.
One of Owners in City
c. B. Blethen, managing editor and
joint owner with his father and brother
of the Seattle Times, which burned
early yesterday morning under mys
terious circumstances, declared last '
night that he is positive the fire can
be traced to an Incendiary source.
Mr. Blethen Is staying at the St.
Francis hotel with his wife. He spent
most of yesterday "shopping," and be
fore nightfall had "purchased" enough
material to re-equip the Times plant
so that within six weeks the paper will
be issued from Its own presses once
more.
"The money loss is nothing," he said
last night, "for the plant was insured.
Our main loss will be in time and
business.
"Tn six weeks we will be Issuing our
paper from a plant of temporary ron
struttion. Today I purchased $100,000
worth of equipment.
"Only the two upper stories of the
building; were totally destroyed, and
these will he replaced at once. In the
meantime our $500,000 huildin?. which
was to have been started .Tune 1, will
be started immediately, and the work
rushed. This will be a six story con
crete fire and earthquake proof
building.
"During the next six weeks the Dally
Times will be turned out at the plant
of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, while
the Sunday Times will be issued from
the Seattle Star office.
"The magazine and comic sections of
the paper will be printed in Portland.
We are overwhelmed by kindness on
the part of other Seattle publishers and
can't adequately express thanks for the
noble manner in which they have come
to our rescue.
"I strongly suspect the fire was of
incendiary origin. The flre started in
a place where there were no wires or
other fire creating thing*.
'"We have been pursued by fires , dur
ing the last two years. During this
time we have had 30 fires. All but this
last one have been of little conse
quence."
Million in Gold From North
SEATTLE. Feb. 13.—More than a mil
lion dollars in gold, said to be the larg
est consignment of treasure ever re
ceived from the north at this time of
the year, was brought down by the
steamship Mariposa which arrived from
Cordova. Alaska, today.
The gold was shipped by express from
the Irlitarod district and was more than
two months in transit. From the Idita
rod to Chttina, more than 2,000 miles,
the gold was hauled on dog sleds. At
Chitina it was placed on a train of the
Copper River and Northeastern rail
road.
The train was caught between two
snowelides that tied up traffic more
than a month on the Alaska line, and
during that time the express company's
guards, heavily armed, watched over
the treasure while laborers with rotary
snow plows cleared the way into
Cordova.
Pension Bill Introduced
OI,YMPIA, Wash., Feb. 13.-—The In
troduction tn the senate of a bill provid
ing for old age pensions was the
feature of today's proceedings of the
Washington legislature.
The bill provides that persons in old
age who are unable to earn a liveli
hood are to receive from the state not
to exceed $10 a month. The bill does
not name the minimum age at which
persons may benefit by the proposed
act.
The senate passed a. bill providing
state aid for tuberculosis patients and
a petition asking the British Columbia
parliament to close the saloons across
the international line from the town
of Blame, which was voted "dry. ,.
The house passed the permanent
highway bill, increasing the tax levy
for road building from 1% mills to 2ft

SECRETARY TO WALKER

J. L. Fields Tells of Inquiry
Into Workings of the
Continental
J. I* Fields, secretary to Building
and Loan Commissioner Walker, was
the principal witness yesterday before
Judge Seawell. Fields was carried over
a lengthy direct'examinatlon by Assist
ant Attorney General Robert Harrison
and a rigid cross examination by Attor
ney R. P. Henshall.
Mr. Henshall sought to elicit from
Mr. Fields the exact time when his
suspicions as to the alleged insolvency
were aroused. Mr. Fields testified that
in October. 1911, when he examined the
books, there were three overdrafts
carried, but this did not cause him to
suspect the association was on danger
ous ground. Neither did the fact there
was considerable delinquent Interest
carried impel him to recommend any
action. He said his first suspicion
came with the report of Accountant J.
B. Hassett in August, 1912, in which
the particular feature of supposedly
hazardous contract loans appeared.
Mr. Fields declared he did not be
lieve the association was unsafe in
1911, although he said he discovered
the books showed an indebtedness to

CALIFORNIA'S COUNTRY
CLUBS TO OUTSHINE ALL
Kenneth McLeod, Home
From First Vacation in
Years, Makes Prophecy
Kenneth MeLeod. manager of the
Burlingame Country club, which is
conceded to be one of the finest coun
try clubs- in the west, has just re
turned from a three months' trip
through western Canada. Chicago, New
York, Philadelphia, Boston, New
Orleans and Galveston. After complet
ing his tenth year as manager with
out a vacation, the directors of the
club concluded it was high time to
grant him a leave of absence, and.
after inspecting the big clubs and
hotels of the east, he returns with
many new ideas In catering, equip
ment and management.
While in the east MeLeod addressed
the Chicago Stewards' club and the an
nual meeting of the New York branch
of the International Stewards' associa
tion. He urged the members of the
international organization to come to
San Francisco in 1915 end assured them
of a hearty greeting 5n the exposition
city.
"New York city unquestionably Is
the greatest hotel center In the United
States, which, in my judgment, means
the world," said MrLeod. in referring
to his trtp. "Higher in the air, deeper
in the ground and magnificent in in
terior decoration, the New York hotels
are Indeed wonderful. But, notwith
standing the foot for foot of building
construction and measure for measure
in service, ."-•n Francisco does not suf
fer by comparison.
"San Francisco's leading clubs have
the advantage over the average eastern
clubs by reason of the opportunity
afforded in more recent construction,
embodying the very latest ideas in |
architectural design and comfortable!
equipment. California's best country j
clubs rank favorably with the best, and
in many cases are superior to the
average eastern club, having the de
cided advantage of climatic conditions.
Ultimately, California country clubs
will outshine the world."

VERDI'S "OTELLO ,, SUNG
WITH DRAMATIC EFFECT
Foleo in Title Role, nnd Adaberio am
Dmdemona Carry Off Honors
of Opera
I
Verdi's dramatic opera "Otello" was
rendered in excellent fashion by tlie
Lambardi singers at the Valencia last
night, and again Ester Adaherto won
stellar honors for her splendid por
trayal of the unhappy Desdemona.
Folco mide a magnificent Otello, his
fine voice ringing fortli to unbounded
enthusiasm in his rendering of several
arias and duets. Twice during the
opera he was called upon to repeat his
poio-s for two encores and in all of the
many duets with Adaberto the two
stars brought forth loud and vocifer
ous applause. As the crafty lago,
(Jiovacchini has but added another tri
umph to his string of successes.
The pinging of Adaberto this season
has proved her worth as a. high class
artist. In many of her roles she has
excelled any prlma donna that Lam
bardi has yet brought to this city, and
particularly as Desdemona last night
she demonstrated that she will he reck
oned upon when figuring out the great
singers of the present day opera.
"Thais," with Vicarino as the Greek
girl and Nlcoletti as Athanael, will be
sung by the company at the Valencia
tonight. Tomorrow afternoon Ada
