) > AMUNDSEN , discoverer
RALI the south poll1 , who is now
only forty years old , lias long
been considered one of the
most competent of the northern ex
plorers , lie Is the first nnd only manse
so fnr to accomplish the long attempt
ed feat of taking a ship from the At
lantic to the Pacific ocean by way of
the Northwest passage , which , by the
way , Columbus was looking for when
he accidentally hit upon America. lie
made , at a point within a bhort dl -
tanco of the magnetic north pole , the
only set of complete polar magnetic
observations taken before Pearj's
discovery of the north pole. These
achievements were accomplished In
190. ! and 190. .
Amundsen's expedition at the time
was made , at a cost of only $30,000 , In
tiny whaling sloop , the Gjoa , only fcev-
enty feet long and of only forty-seven
tons burden.
Amundsen was born In Sarpsburg ,
Norway , on .Inly 1C > , 1872 , and In his
childhood moved with his parents to
Chrlstlunla. Ills father was Jens
Amundsen , a skipper. His mother's
maiden name was Sahlqulst. His par
ents destined him for the medical pro
fession ; but , after studying medicine
for one year at the University of Chris-
Uanla , on the death of his mother he
went to sea at the age of nineteen ,
cruising for several years as a whaler
and sealer on Norwegian vessels. He
Is a tall , spnre man , with the appear
ance of a typical Scandinavian pallor.
He Is a bachelor.
His First Taste of Exploration.
lie had his first real taste of explo
ration when in 1897 he went as lirst
ofllccr with the Belglca on Gerlach's
Belgian south polar expedition. It was
this trip , which lasted from 1897 to
1899 , that filled him with aspirations
to make discoveries In the arctic re
gion and especially to discover the
long sought Northwest passage. First
he decided to prepare himself by
studying two years In Hamburg under
Neumayer , the expert on magnetism ,
and finally \Vllhelmshafen under
Bergen in the meteorological station.
Then he proceeded to rtlso the mod
est funds necessary for his expedition.
A large part of tboS 0,000 was Amund
sen's own money. Fridtjof Nanscn , the
Norwegian polar explorer , a cloo
friend of Amundsen , helped him raise
another part.
Amundsen was finally able to put out
from Christianla In the Gjoa on Juno
17 , 1903. He sailed around the north
eud of America , reaching the mouth of
the Mackenzie river about Sept. ! ! ,
190. ) , and then by way of Baffin bay ,
Lancaster sound , Barrow strait , Peel
sound , James Itobs strait and Itao
strait. Twice the Gjoa wintered In the
Ice. For many months Amundsen
maintained an observatory on King
William Land , within ninety miles of
the magnetic pole , taking daily ob > ei-
A Long Sought Goal.
The Northwest passage was formoro
than three centuries the lure of adven
turous sailors of all lands. Martin
Froblsher I00 ! years ago had declared
it the only thing that still remained to
be discovered in the world. Perhaps
it was John Cabot who first set out for
It in an endeavor to find a new way
east by bailing west. As far back as
1053 Sir Hugh Willoughby and Richard -
ard Chancellor sailed from England to
search for that i > ame passage. Fro-
blsher followed In 1570. John Davis
in 1D85 , Barents of Amsterdam in
1590 and scores of others , including
Sir John Itoss. in ISIS , and Sir John
Franklin In 18T.9. .
Amundsen milled from Christianla ,
Norway , on June 1C , 1903 , in the llttlo
Gjoa , a mere eggshell of a vessel , with
but eight men all told upon her. The
Gjoa registered only forty-seven tons
nnd was seventy feet long nnd twenty
Amundsen made his way through
Lancaster sound to Bcechy Island and
sailed to Capo Adelaide , thence east
ward of King William Land by enter
ing Itoss strait. He reached Gjoa har
bor , in latitude north OS degrees and
05 minutes , on the south coast of King
William Land , on Sept. 17 , 1903. Them
the vessel was laid up safely for the
From that'tlme until Aug. 13 , 1905 ,
Amuuducn made daily observations of
magnetic conditions day nnd night for
twenty months.
On Aug. 13 , 1005 , the Gjoa started
on her westward way. She had come
some 770 miles from Ballln bay , and
only 7CO remained to Cape Bathurst ,
the American whaling station , and the

At one point In Simpson strait there
was barely room for her to POBB , and

News of the Discovery.
On Aug. 20 , after passing through
Dolphin nnd Union straits , the Ojon ,
somewhat cast of Capo Bnthutst , met
the first American whaler.
An accident to the propeller of the
Hip necessitated Amundoon'i winter-
lug with the Gjoa at King point , 09
degreea 10 minutes north , 188 degrees

west passage to the world.
He returned to the GJon that win
ter and brought her Mifely through
the Bering strait , the first ship to
make the Northwest passage. lie had
also determined the magnetic pole by
observations covering nearly two years
In Its Immediate vicinity.
The Northwest passage trip brought
Amundsen great renown , but Boon
afterward he turned his t 'ights to
ward the north pole and nco an
nounced his plan of drifting around
the polar sea. lie received strong
backing from his countrymen , King
ilnnkon of Norway heading the list of
subscribers In support of his project.
In 1909. when Dr. Cook returned to
America with his yarn of how ho dis
covered the north pole , Amundsen de
clared ho paw no reason to doubt the
doctor's story. A little later he him
self announced his project of drifting
around the polar sea to the north pole ,
a plan which was a little jest of his
own apparently , for he switched off
toward the south pole Instead.
Fram Strongest Ship Afloat.
The Fram , the ship in which Captain
Amundsen made his expedition to the
antarctic , is the vessel In which Dr.
Fridtjof Nansen , the Norwegian ex
plorer , achieved his "farthest north"
in 1895. The word Fram means "for
ward. "
The ship was built especially for arc
tic Ice bucking at Colin Archer's ship
yard nt Larvik by Dr. Nansen after
his return from his Greenland voyage
in 1PS9 , and It Is considered the strong
est small craft ever constructed , her
power of resistance to a crush of Ice
being greater than the force which
would be needed to lift her on the Ice.
The \es&el Is Just big enough for a
crew of about twelve men , a typical
viking's party such as Amundsen and
the skippers of his race rejoice to take
with them to measure the strength of
small num'bers against the freezing
might of the arctic.
The Fram is a U shaped tub , design
ed neither to be a fast nor a smooth
sailor. She Is only 101 feet long nnd
her breadth one-third her length. The
ship is pointed at both ends to make
nosing into nnd out of the Ice equally
easy. She has no projecting corners
and on the whole resembles a Norwe
gian pllotboat. Her sides are from
twenty-eight to thirty-two Inches thick
a solid mass of pitch pine , oak nnd
greenheart , her hull being covered
with three nnd four thicknesses of
tough , heavy timber , four feet wide at
the bow and three feet at the stern.
Withstood Rough Voyage.
Captain Otto Sverdrup , an experienc
ed arctic navigator , who was with Dr.-
Nansen on his transgreenland trip of
1889 , had charge of the Fram on her
maiden voyage into the arctic , when
in 1SOH-90 Nausen reached the highest
latitude until then attained , SG de
grees 14 minutes north. It was a
rough voyage , - < ho roughest timbers
had ever weathered , but the Fram
withstood the crush of the northern
ice pack.
At one point. In latitude 8.1 degrees
14 minutes , the ice pack froze stiff
around her , and she seemed doomed to
remain in perpetual cold storage in
the frozen desert. Only by blasting
with guneotton nnd powder were they
able to free her and continue their
course southward.
On New Year's day. Just after Nan-
Ben left the ship for his dash over the
ice , the Ice froze once more around her
and she was subjected to a pressure
that would have crushed any other
ship like an eggshell. But the From
withstood it until the ice itself sudden
ly cracked , leaving n free lane of wa
ter ahead of her.
One week in June , 1800 , at the height
of the spring tides the Fram was ex
posed to violent pressure by the chang
ing tide currents , which twice a day
lifted her from six to nine feet until
her bottom could be plainly seen rest
ing on the Ice. Yet even then as she
was lifted out of her element and
beached upon the Ice not n crack or
groan was heard In her timbers. The
men nlxmrd her were not even dis
turbed in their slumbers nnd awoke
ignorant of the danger that had men
aced them In the night. Many times
the little craft had to be thawed out
of the Ice with steam , and several
times gun powder and guneotton were
used to blast her free. But the Fram
came homo without a broken timber.
It was for these qualities of the
sturdy little ice ship that Amundsen
selected her as the ship of his latest
expedition when , In 1909 , he decided
once more to enter the polar fields , and
he asked the Norwegian state for her
for his contemplated south polar voy
age."Tho old Frnm Is not yet so entirely
unfit for service as has so often been
paid latterly , " he announced before he
started on his expedition. "Watch
her. "

Does the full significance of that
sink in ?
When Theodore Roosevelt returned
from his exploits In Africa and his
triumphal trip through Europe ho
was descilhed as "tho most popular
American. " Ills right to the title was
admitted without dissent.
When the seven governors decided
to save the republican party they In
sisted Hint the Roosevelt popularity
must he drafted to accomplish the
Job. Roosevelt nt first refused to respond
spend to the draft. Ilo insisted on
being shown ( hnl the plea of the gov
ernors represented a popular demand.
He was shown n basket full of "straw
\oti s" from many localities , Including
North Dakota. The straw votes show
ed that Roosevelt everywhere was a
tlve-to-one , or a ten-to-one , or n flf-
teen-to-ono popular favorite. There
fore the colonel hurriedly agreed to
run and expressed the hope that the
Indhldunl voters everywhere would
ho given a chance to express their
preference In popular primaries.
The first popular piesldentlal pri
mary was held in North Dakota. Out
of a total vote of about .10,000 Roosevelt
velt got about 18,000 votes nnd La
Folletto about : ! 2,000. Roosevelt had
once- lived in North Dakota , and for
various reasons his popularity was
supposed to he stronger there than
in any other state. LaFolletto was
a stranger to North Dakota , known
there only as u political revivalist
who stood for certain principles ad
vanced in the name of political re
form. And yet the Noith Dakota
popular verdict was two to one In
tnvor of LaFollette.
Why did the tremendous popular
ity of Roosevelt melt in this acid
test ? North Dakota is a radical state
politically. Does the venllct indicate
belief that the colonel as a radical
Is a fake. Does it intimate convle
tlon that the colonel gave LaFollette
as well as Taft a dirty deal instead
of a square deal ? Docs It reflect pop
ular prejudice against a third term
for even a popular man ?
There are the figures two-to-one
against Roosevelt. Let the third Jerin

Sioux City Journal : Col. Reese
velt's Carnegie hall address was one
of the best sounding speeches the
colonel has over made , and ho has
made a good many. It was admirably
