MAGNETIC POLE SURVEY.
Cel. OUelcr Will Make an Interfntlnic
.Journey te tlie Far North.
Nbw Yeittt, May 4. Cel. W. II. Ollder,
who with Lieut Schwatka wen fame
in bringing lack from the northern
legions information respecting Frank
lin and his expedition, ugain proposes
te make a journey te the north, this
time at the head of a party te make a
ihagnctic survey of the region immedi
ately surrounding the northern mag
netic pole.
The American Geographical society,
of this city, the National Academy of
sciences, at Washington, incmlicrs of
the United States coast survey, and a
number of ether scientific men, arc in
terested in the proposed expedition.
Although some funds have been pledged
for fitting out the party and for carry
ing en the work, nothing definite has
been determined upon in the way of
plans, the money required, the exact
route, etc.
The American geographical society,
with Cel. (JUder, has taken the initia
tive in the matter, and for the purpose
of discussing the exploration the so
ciety held a speelal meeting Monday
night In Chickering hall. Ex-Judge
Charles P. Daly presidqd, and brieily
outlined the advantages of a northern
magnetic survey.
Prof. Trowbridge said that as a result
of the expedition the magnetic pole
might net only be definitely located,
but the whole world of terrestinl
physics benefitted. He bald that in his
opinion all magnetic surveys en land
should be prohibited, as the true im
portance and the Iwneflt te be derived
were en the sea alone for the mariner
who Is dependent upon his compass. He
looked forward te the time when a sta
tion might be established In the neigh
borhood of the magnetic pole and tele
graphic communication be made be
tween It and the rest of the world.
Prof. Meyer explained that one thing
It would be sought te establish at the
point when the needle assumes the ver
tiele position, wad whether the se-called,
pole was fixed or moving. He was en
thusinstic in his upprevul of the pro
posed expedition, and expressed the
hop' that America would take the lead
in definitely fixing the magnetic pole
nnd,'llylngthcstnrsnndstripesupenit."
Gen. Greely brlefiy outlined the mag
netic surveys that have been made
about King William's, when' Cel. Gil
der's journey will lead. Hespeke of his
own journey north and the valuable
geographical work he had te leave un
done because of the requirements of his
special mission. Ne doubt he said,
could exist as p the practicability of
the journey and it would be compara
tively safe, the party passing through a
country fairly well peopled and well
supplied with game.

had net been removed from the school
house. Miss Shaw, a young lady residing en
Chestnut avenue, had a narrow escape.

the lightning struck the chimney, ran
down the side of the house, through the
window and melted two tin cans set
ting en the window sill. It also burned
i dish-rag in the dish-pan which was en
i table in the same room. Her clothes

Heavy Iren Locked Upen UN WtlH-
It In Itelleveil He Will Celli

MKi.neitnNK, May 4. After Deeming
was conveyed last night from the court
room In vhlch sentence of death had
just been passed upon him and returned
te the jail his clothing was taken from
him nnd he was compelled te den
the attire worn by convicts In
the prison. He was then placed
In the condemned cell and heavy irons
were locked upon his wrists te prevent
him from committing bulcide. There Is
scarcely a doubt that he would kill hhn-
Iself If the opportunity offered and a
clese watch will be kept upon him in or
der that he can net cheat the gallows.
He did net appear te be at all cast
down by hi fate, and after a short con cen con
ersatlen with the wnrders detallea te
watch him he threw himself upon the
pallet in his cell and slept calmly until
this morning. Much interest is mani
fested In the biography that Deeming
Is writing and upon which he has spent
much time since he wns imprisoned.
It is believed that the man's overween
ing vnnity will impel him te confess in
this work all the crimes he has ever
committed.
Ily appealing te the Judicial commit
tee of the privy council, Deeming may
succeed in putting off his execution for
a time, but his haste te complete his
book shows that he has little, if any,,
hope of eenplng hanging. Early
Tuesday morning he resumed his
writing en his biography, which he says
he will bequeath te MIrs Reunsevell,
the young lady te whom he was' en
gaged tit the time of his arrest. He ex
presses tlie hope that the profits which
she may derive from its publication will
in some degree compensate her for the
wrong and annoyance which he has
been the means of inflicting en her.

FAITHFUL IN DEATH.
Tbfl Touch Inj; Affcrtlen of a near ter
Her Yeung. ,
go many pathctla stories are told of
the misery caused hy hunters In the
animal world that ene can scarcely
tolerate the idea of sheeting merely for
"Bpert" r.Whcn the term means merely
wanton cruelty, then it Is time te sock
mercpcftful if less exciting eccupa
tiens, stMfmgtic xeuuvs uempani' . a
story is jBef a polar bear whicl - vith
tsve largwlpus, svas sighted by the creir
of ran exploring frigate. When the
animals were within reach of the
vessel, tlie sailors threw them great
lumps of seahorse flesh, nnd these thai
old licar divided among her cubs, re-'
serving only a small portion ler herself.)
Then, when the three animals were
happily feeding, the sailors fired. Theyj
wounded the dam nnd killed the cubs.
It would have drawn tears of pityl
from any but the unfeeling te have1
marked the affectionate concern ex
pressed by this peer Injaet in the last
moments of her expiring young.
Though she was dreadfully wounded,
she tore another lump of flesh In pieces,
and laid it before them.
When bhe found that they would net
cat she laid her paws first en one and,
then the ether, and tried te rnise them
up; all this time it was pitiful te hear
her mean. When she was convinced
thnt they would net stir, she walked
away, looking back nnd still meaning;
nnd when thnt did net entice them te
rise, she returned and began te lick
their wounds.
She went off a second time ns before,
and having crawled a few paces looked
again liehind her. The cubs did neb
rise, and she returned, and with signs
of inexpressible fondness went round
pawing them and meaning. Finding
at last that they were cold nnd lifeless,
she raised her head toward the ship and,
uttered a growl of despair, which the
murderers returned with a volley of
balls. Then bhe fell between her cubs
and died, licking their wounds.

A COSTLY EXPERIMENT.
The I'nsha Itcpeiwd Toe Much Faith la
Human Nuture.
When Empress Eugenie visited Cnire
In IS09, Napeleon III. presented te
Nubar Pasha a -aluable watch set),
with diamonds. Thii. watch he was in
the habit of placing before him en the
table during the meetings of the coun
cil, which were generally held in the
evening, says a writer in the National
Zeltuntr. At one of the sittings the elec
tric light suddenly went out, When It
was turned en again Nubar's watch had
disappeared. The pasha scrutinized the
faces of his colleagues ene eftcr the
ether, but net one winced under his
gar-c. At length he said:
"Gentlemen, the watch that, accord
ing te my custom, I had lying here be
fore me, has been removed. The deer
is locked en the inside, nobody has en
tered the room in the meantime, and
nelnxly has gene out. I attribute tlie
less of the watch te a bad joke or a fit
of abstraction en the part of ene of you
gentlemen. I will new turn out the
light once mere, feeling convinced that
when It is turned en again the watch
will be found In ite usual place"
The light was then put out. When
It shena brightly a tniuute later, net '
only was the place where the watch
had been still vacant, but Nubar'p jew
eled Inkstand, a present from Victer
Emmanuel, hnd also vanished. Nubar ;
