deputy minister of naval affairs and
acting minister of marine and fisher

lieving the Karluk safe in the ice in
longitude west 147°, 15 miles off shore,
he took a party ashore with him to
hunt. The next day heavy* gales
sprang up, and then a fog'. When the
weather cleared the Karluk was not
in sight and had undoubtedly been
