SEATTLE. Wash.. Sept. 3.— Alaska's
silent city has emerged once mere from
its mysterious hiding piace and reveal
ed its presence to six members of the
party which accompanied Prince Luigi j
up Mount St. Elias. In the early morn
ing of July 13 the little party, while re
turning from the ocean with supplies,
suddenly saw the city mirrored in the i
clear atmosphere. The vision was so
clear that C. W. Thornton, well-known j
to Seattle business men ana a leading j
Y. M. C. A. athlete, who first noticed it. 1
wrote in his notebook:
"It required no effort of the imagina
tion to liken it to a city. It was so dis- i
tinct and plain that it required, instead, i
strong faith to believe that it was not !
in reality a city."
While the silent city of which Miner
Bruce wrote was seen from Muir gla
cier, that seen by Mr. Thornton and his
comrades was noted from Malaspina. a
glacier over 100 miles distant. It re
mained a perfect Image for thirty min
utes and then slowly faded away, while
in its place appeared a rocky ridge.
Following is the story told in the
words of Mr. Thornton: "Six of us
separated from the main party July 8
to go back to the beach for provisions.
We were about forty miles from the
ocean and allowed three days for the
trip to the stores. Our party was com
posed of Benno Alexander, a poet: Elm
Osborg, William Tichman. of Provi
dence hospital, Seattle; Francis Flor
ini. an interpreter: William Steele, a
sailor, and myself. After leaving the
main party near Russell camp we made
the trip to the beach, stopping at Camp j
Independence on the way down. On
our way back, while crossing the Ma- j
laspina glacier, about ten miles from
Camp Ingrahanx which is in Ingra
ham pass, we saw a strange sight.
"It was 3:45 o'clock in the morning
and we were resting from a hard climb
since about 10 o'clock the night before.
We had chosen this time to make the
climb because it gave us hard snow. In
■the daytime the hot sun would melt the
snow as if you poured boiling water
on it. The atmosphere was perfectly
clear. There was not a cloud in sight
and not a breath of air stirring. It
was impossible to calculate distances.
"It was some time before sunrise. ;
and I was looking around at th-: j
mountains and the grandeur of the sky. :
with its limitless sea of light blue, j
Mount St. Elias. Mount Newcomo. !
Mount Augusta and Mount Cook, all i
over 10.000 feet high, the heads capped i
with snow, stood out clear and well j
defined in their great height, lik^- i
mighty sentinels to bar the path of j
the most courageous adventurer. Tht-
Steward, the Marvin or the Newton, i
the Pynacale and many others that j
have not been named, lay before our
eyes. It was a panorama so great.
so grand, so wonderful in its marvel- J
ous group of grand coloring, that the 1
languages of all ages, of all peopie.
could not furnish figures of speech i
equal to an adequate description.
"When we looked to the north
were thunderstruck to behold a mag- I
nificent city, apparently resting on a :
ridge, which is an extension from the I
massive west side of Mount St. Elia*.
It was in truth a silent city. Every i
detail of street and buildings wa;
plainly visible, but not a sign of life
was to be seen.
"I called the attention of my friends
to the sight and found that they saw ;
everything exactly as I saw it. If it
was imagination on my part, then
there were five imaginations that fell I
in the same channel as I. This, how- I
ever, is hardly possible.
"At the right hand side as they faced :
us were what looked like two Chinese ;
; temples. Next to them, and occupy
j ing the center of the picture, was a
' large building with massive columns
: and a huge dome. Everything about
1 the building was massive. It towered
1 above all other structures in the city.
1 making them appear dwrafed. Across i
I the entire front, at equal distances one .
from another, were these great coi- ,
umns. extending from the ground to t
j the roof. It was impossible to distin- j
I guish either doors or windows. The !
; dome appeared above the rcof. which
i had a gradual slant. The dome was
1 first rounded out and th^n came to a.
' point at its upper extremity.
"At the left of the temple, or what- j
! ever it was. was a group of building? .
; having the appearance of bus,:
i blocks. They were square, having
rows of windows denoting about four '■
: stories. They had flat roofs. Each ot
! these buildings was set flush with the i
I street, and they made a harmonious '
; picture with short, even spaces be
tween them.
"Next came what appeared to be a
i church, with a tall, slender spire, and
I at the extreme left I think there were
I three buildings that locked like facto- ;
1 ries. Only a portion of these build- i
ings was visible, and it appeared as if !
: the city extended in that direetior. ]
; much farther than we could see.
"This completed the picture that was
; placed before our eyes. It lasted from
! 3:45 o'clock in the morning until 4:20. |
It began to disappear at 4:15 and fad
ed away gradually, requiring only five
. minutes tc disappear entirely. From
the time we first noticed it until it
commenced to fade it was perfectly
steady and the image perfect, as pre- :
! viousiy described.
"I have previously stated that the :
silent city appeared to rest upon a
: ridge. I should state that this portion
of the ridge did not appear until the
I city had entirely faded away. Th- ■
■ ridge was at least thirty miles dis- i
tajit, but the city appeared much :
; nearer, so it would seem that the pic- :
ture was in the air between us an-] ;
; the ridge and that the ridge reaily
! furnished a background.
■■From a scientific standpoint it may ;
: be worthy of notice that on the same ;
j day that we saw this picture there
i was one of the severest -storms on the
i ccean ever known in that region. It
lasted during that day and the next. :
1 "We did net know anything about this. ;
i however, until we compared notes with 1
' Capt. Greenleaf. of the yacht Aggie, on j
cur return from the mountain.
"This city appeared to us more like
■ city of the old country than any- \
thing else We were inclined to com- i
pare it with Russian cities, an 1 since •
reading Miner Bruees description of ;
Willoughby's 'Silent City,' which he
claims to have identified as Bristol.
England, and to have photographed :
after three attempts on three different
trips to Muir glacier, I have been read- •
ing up on the subject of mirages, en- ,
deavoring to learn where instances ;
have been known where a mirage was I
thrown as great a distance. Willough- j
by's pictures are very indistinct. If
our silent city was a Russian city and
his an English, differences in the dis
tance might explain the remarkable
distinctness of the one we saw.
"We regretted that Sella, the world
famous mountain photographer, who
was one of Prince Luigl's party, was
not with us this time. The only means
we had of photographing the city was
with a pocket kodak, which I carried.
I took two shcts at the city, having
little hopes of obtaining good results,
as the city did not appear on the 'find
er" cm account of the great* distance
and the smallness of the instrument. 1
preserved the film, however, and had
it developed. In one case there is no
picture at all aud m the other only a
black shadow where the picture ough:
to be."
Concerning his achievements after
his return to civilization. Prince Luigi
was very modest. He has avoided
conversing about either the character
of the work he and his party had to
perform before they arrived at the
summit or the scientific facts he has
added to the former knowledge of the
mountain. When he returns to Italy
he will prepare a monograph concern
ing his experiences, which will, it is
said, be of great value to that divi
sion of the scientific world interested
in the study of the phenomena cf great
altitudes. This monograph will be ac
companied by photographs of peculiar
interest, which were taken by the
party at various stages of the jour
ney. Some of these, most notably
those which were obtained at eleva
tions of more than fourteen thousand
feet, have no equals, it is said, in the i
world. Not only do they show the

"You will be surprised to know that
the ascent was not either very danger
ous or difficult. We were all experi
enced mountaineers and we had all of
us encountered dangers in climbing
far more perilous mountains than those
with which we were confronted. The
notable feature of the long climb was
the glaciers. They seemed to be bound- ;
ess. We had never before witnessed
?uch vast expanses, and their splendor :
;s unrivalled. There were many crev
asses, some of them very wide, but i
these were also overcome and we
reached the top after eighteen hours
jf hard climbing.
"The most difficult part of the trip
was from "the divide.' From this
point it required eleven hours to gain
the top. We had lots of adventures,
and every one of the party, including
the prince and the guide, fell into
crevasses, but we were so well pre
pared against accidents of that sort
that no one came to harm. We came

He Will Be the Candidate of the
Citizens' Union.
3. — Seth Low has signified his accept
ance of the nomination of mayor of
Greater New York, tendered him by
the buroughs committee of the Citi
zens union. Mr. Low was officially
notified of his nomination by J. G.
Clark, a special messenger of the Cit
izens' union. There was no ceremony
attending the affair. Four reporters
were the only other persons present.
Mr. Low. after the union's letter of
notification was read, announced that
he would accept, adding:
"In my view, the nomination has
been virtually made by the people.
No patriot, under such circumstances
could decline to stand, unless he was
prepared to discourage, even in local
matters, all spontaneous movements
by the people outside of the limita
tions of party. There seems to be an
importance attaching to the order of
nomination at this juncture on the
part of those apparently inclined to be I
controlled by this expression of popu
lar desire that, personally, I fail to
fully understand."
Mr. Low closed by paying that he
thought his nomination not a personal
tribute, but that it "means that the
people of .the city, as they contem
plate a!l that is at stake, are deeply
moved by the desire that, when the
great city begins its new career, it
should do so with a mandate from
the voters to the official? of the city
that the welfare of the city, not of any
party, is to be their first concern.
For that principal I am known t"
stand: for it I will contend in the
:.z campaign, with such allies as
time may bring: but for it I shall
stand by my friends, few or many.
Because the citizens' union stands for
this principle, and because I am in
sympathy with its general purposes. I
shall gladly accept this nomination,
and I shall welcome all support from
any quarter that recognizes the posi
tion that I occupy."

.Nothing Seen of the Darinc Ex
plorer on the Return _-*p From
the Polar Sea.
LONDON. Sept. 3.— The British
steamer Windward having on board
the Jackson-HarmsworTh expedition, 1
which has spent three winters in
Fianz Josefland. arrived here today
with F. C Jackson and his colleagues.
All the members of the expedition are
in good health. They report having
explored Franz Josefland thoroughly i
with the exception of some odd corners.
Before the Windfall sailed, the quar- ':
ters of the expedition at Elmwood <
fastened up. but Mr. Jackson left
there a quantity of supplies in case the
place should be visited by Prof. Andree
•ncr explorer?. He also established !
a depot at Bell island.
Talking over his experiences. Mr.
Jackson said that since the Windward
left Franz Josefland last year, with Dr. :
Nansen. the winter had been less se- j
vere and less windy than usual. Mr.
Jackson and Albert Armitage, nautical |
astronomer of the expedition, started \
March 16. with a pony and dog '
sledges to explore the Western part *f
Franz Josefland. They encountered '
tx isterious weather and at the end of j
the first month a majority of the d. gs i
and ponies succumbed and the explor- j
ers were compelled to abandon all but
the essential part of the equipment.
The party followed the coast line.
•irr.es on a sea of ice and some
times along glaciaied land, fifteen hun
dred fe^t high, bordering on Cam
bridge bay. The corstant mists which
prevailed made the journey very har
rassing. The party shot a bear, the
• . ani having procured
meat they returned to Elmwcod in the
m:ddie of May. after meeting a party
sent out to look for them, anxiety for
their safety having been felt as they
were a fortnight overdue. A second
expedition which went eas.ward at the
.ning of June, was less successful
nd day out. the explor
ers lost a sledg-e through the thin sea
Ide and had a hazardous return jour
The result cf the explorations, it is
claimed, completely revolutionizes the
i. id idea of Franz Jusefland. and
proves that the much discussed Giilits
land does not lie where arctic geog
raphers have been in the habit of plac
ing it. and therefore it may
sidered non-existant. The whole con
tinental mass of land is replaced by a
vast number of small islands and the '
lofty mountains by long ridged hum- :
mocks and ice packs, while north of
these areas has been found an opea
sea. which is the most open nurth t-a.
in the whole world.
The most valuable magnetic, mete- ;
oiological and geological observations:
were made and very valuable botanical
and zoological collections were brought
to England. The winter life of the ex
plorers was uneventful. There were
about two hours twilight in the middle
of the day from October to November
and from thence on it was total dark
ness until the end of February.
The members of the expedition killed
1,400 loons (a. web-footed bird found in
the northen regions^ in the autumn.
which provided ample fresh meat.
During the winter they caught nineteen
loons and twenty-two kittiwakes (a
bird of the gull kindj to which they
fastened labels initltaled "J" and
liberated them. The cold sometimes
reached 40 degrees below zero, and
jumped up to 20 degrees below freezing
point. The members of the expedition
failed to see "King of Iceland" and
axe convinced that there is no great
land north of Franz Josefland. They ;
believe that the existence of Peterland ;
is doubtfuL and at most it must be t
These alterations in the map render <
the prospect of reaching the north j
pole from Franz Josefland more than
doubtful as the returned explorers are
satisfied there is no land north of 82
degrees. They did not see anything of
Prof. Andree, who started on July 11,
from the Island of Tromsoe in an at
tempt to cross the north pole by bal
loon. Mr. Jackson announces his In
tention of heading another arcti.
pedition, this time on his own account.
Gov. Brady, of Ala.«kn. Describes the
Klondike Hash.
WASHINGTON. Sept 3.-John G.
Brady, governor of Alaska, has sent to
Secretary Bliss, a personal letter in
which he gives some interesting
facts about the rush for the Klondike
region. Got. Brady has been identi
fied with Alaskan interests most of his
life time, and is known to be very con
servative in his opinions. Writing* from
Jureau. he says:
"Steamships are passing daily fcr

most with passengers and supplies.
The news just out of Klondike t •

find it. and silver runs in veins' Eerms

conservative estimate is that taere are

rft.me parties are dividing up and will
try to send one over with supplies,
while the others will go into camp
until spring. The men who are coming
are fine fellows and I greatly admire
them as I see them talk and walk. A
country can well be proud of such men
they are remarkably orderly." ,
