London The cable dispatcheH from

Scott had found the south pole, come
as a startling climax to the race with
live explorers of different nations.
Captain Robert Falcon Scott started
on his expedition from Port Cahners,
New Zealand, on November li'.t. MHO.
He was well equipped for this dash
for the farthest south, having made
a previous expedition under Hie direc
tion of the royal geographical society.
At taat time he attained a record of
S2 degrees, ::o minutes, which re
mained the record up to the time of
Lieutenant Shackelton's notable ex
ploit. ShacUelton pushed further
south and in 1IK17 reached SS degrees,
lilt minutes, or about one hundred
mlbs from the south pole. This re
maiiicd the record and inspired tho
haidy navigators of many nations to
attempt the culminating feat of reach
ing tile pole itself. Captain Scott took
the route by way of Australia and New
Zealand. He sailed due south into
Ross sea, a great stretch of water
reaching toward tho south pole. Ills

Peking Comparative quiet has
been restored at Peking. Tho action
of the American minister, Mr. Cal

not due to the fear of a concerted at

the boxer rising, but owing to tho be
lief that it was unvvlso to take any
