appears to mo imperative. Grooly abandoned
Fort Uongo August 9,1883 nnd reached Band
Inlet September 29th following , with his entire -
tire party well. Ho abandoned all his boats
and was adrift thirty days on nn ice flee in
Smith's sound. His permanent camp wns es
tablished Oct. 21st , 1883 , at n point where he
was found. Dining the iiina months
bis party had to live upon a scant allow
ance of food brought from Fort Conger ; that
cached at Payer harbor and Capo Isabella by
Sir George Norto it ) 1875 but found much
damaged by lapse of time ; that cached by
Bcubo nt Capo Sablno in 1883 , nnd a small
.amount saved from the wreck of the Proteus
in 1883 nnd landed by Lieutenants Garllng-
ton and Colwoll on beach near where Gree-
ly'H party was found. When those provisions
were consumed the party was forced to liyo
upon boiled sealskin utiipped from the sialskin
clothing nnd lichens and shrimps caught In
good weather , when they were strong enough
to rnako exertions. As It took 1,300 shrimps
to fill n gallon measure tha labor wan too
exhausting to depend upon them to sustain
life entirely.
The channel between Capo Sablno and
Littleton , Island , did not close on account of
violent gales all wlnterso that the 2-10 rations
at tlio latter paint could not bo reached.

chief of the signal cervice , has received the
following telegram !
ST. JOHNB , N. F , , July 17. For the first
tlmo in three centuries England yields the
honor of reaching the furthest north. Licit-
tenant Lockwood and Sergant Brainord , May
13th , reached Lockwood Island , latitude 83 °
21" longituo 1 ° fi . They saw from a 2,000
elevation no land north or northwest , but to
the northeast Groi&lnnd vet extended until
lost to view In capo Hobert Itincolu , lutitudo
83 ° 35 , longituUo.'lS0. Lieutenant Lock-
week was turncod back in 1883 by open water
nn the north ( troonlnnd shore , the party bare
ly escaping a drift into the Polar ocean. Dr.
1'avy in 1881 ! , following the Mnrkham route ,
vas adrift ono day in the 1'olar ocean north of
capo Henry , i-scaplng to land , abandoning
nearly everything. In 188 I made a spring
mid , later , a summer trip into the Interior of
the Grluncll Land , discovering Lake llazen ,
some sixty by ton miles In extent , which is
fed by an ice capo of north Grinnoll Land and
drains Huggles river and Weyprocht Fiord into -
to Conybearo bay and Archer Fiord. From
the summit of Mount Arthur , 5,000 feet , the
contour of the land west of Conger mountains
convinced ma that Grinnoll Lnml tends di
rectly south from Lieutenant Aldrich's farth
est point In 1870. In 1883 Lieutenant Lock-
wood and Sergeant Brainerd succeeded in
crossing Grinnell Land , and , ninety miles
from Beatrix Bay , the head of Archer's Fiord ,
struck the head of a Fiord from the western
sea , temporarily named by Lockwood , Greely
Fiord. From the center of the Fi'ird ' in lati
tude 80 minutes and 30 seconds , longitude 78
minutes and 30 seconds , Lieutenant Lock-
wood saw the northern shorn terminate some
twenty miles west and the southern fhore
extending somu fifty miles , with Oapo _ Lock-
wood some seventy miles distant ,
apparently separate land from Grinnell
Laud. I have named the now land
Arthur Land. Lieutenant Lockwood
they followed , going and returning , an ice
capo averaging about 150g feet of perpendicular
face. It lollows that Grinnoll Land interior is
an ice capped belt of country some sixty mtjoj
wide , between the northern and southern ice
cape1) . In March , 1881 , while Sergeant Long
was hunting , ho looked from the northwest
oldu of Mount Caiey to Hayes sound , seeing
on the northern coast three capes westward of
the furthest seen by Nar B in 1876.
The sound nxtends some twenty miles fur
ther west than is shown In the English charts ,
but is probably shut in by land , which showed
up across the westtrn end. The two years'
station duties and observations , all explora
tions and the retreat to Capo Sablno were ac
complished without lots ot life , disease , se
rious accidents , or oven severe frost bites. No
scurvy was experienced at Conger and but one
death occured from it last winter.

survivors. The last regular food was issued
May 14. Only 150 pounds of meat loft by
Jlarllngton. Compelled to send in November
our men to obtain 141 pounds of English
neat In Isabella. During the trip
lilizon froze solid both his hands
and feet and lost them , surviving ,
lowevor , through the terrible winter and
ipriiig until July 8. The survivors owe their
ivcs to the indomitable energy of Captain
schloy and Lieutenant Emory , who , preceded
) y three and accompanied by five whalers ,
orced their vessels from Upernavik through
Melville bay into north water at Cape York
with the foremost whaler. They gained a

WAHHIKUTO.V , July 17 Mr. George Kor
nan , of this city , aud a well known Arctic
traveller and author , who has taken an active
Interest in the iccent attempts to relieve
Lieutenant Greely's party , and who wont
fore the Arctie relief board last spring to
urge the offering of Mich a reward as would
Becnro the co-operation of whalers in the
search , was asked by nn Associated press re
porter to-night what ho thought of the nonu
secured from St. Johns. Ho replied , "It's a
mnarkahio story and heroic achievement In
the field , clouded by disaster , duo to incom-
potency in Wo&hington. If Lieutenant ( jriso
ly und his party had all returned in safety to
tlio United State * , us they 'might have tlone
had they been properly purported their Arc
tic record in point of tklllful management and
success would have been unparalleled. No
other Arctto expedition has uvor spent two
consecutive winters and pirc of the third iu
feuuh high latitude uud achieved bitch results
without a casualty or n uinglo caii of terlous
giuknius. If Lieut Greely hid found the
month of Smith's sound nirl tliu shelter and
food ho hud a right to expect there , ho could
probably have brought his entire party back
to the Unltwl States in perfect health , after
thrco winters In the highest northern latitude *
that over have been reached and niter a series
of sledging campaigns which for boldness and
skillful execution have rarely , if uver , been
surpassed , "
"Could the disaster which befell his parly
lint o bran averted with the knowledge avail
able at the time the relief exhibition were
litti-d out ? "
"Unquestionably , and that n the pity of it.
It doubles the grief which must bo felt in the
face of such a terrible catastrophe , to think
thnt two ships on successive ywira and proba
bly a third were In a po. ltlon to land stores
which would have saved the lives of those
eighteen men , Boobo , in 188'J , anchored in
1'nvor harbor , just north of Capo Saline , with
n ship full of stores , ( inrlington , the nrxt
summer anchored In the same place , and also
with a ship full of stores , and a few day it later
the Yantic , with four months provisions on
board , was only thirty miles away. Any one
of thcso three sh'ps might have landed stores
exactly where Greoly afterwards made his
winter camp and have carried the bravo party
through , but their commanding oilicors wore
not ordered to do go , and they did not think
of it. "
"Wore Greoly's movements these which it
was anticipated they would be ? "
"They wore precisely such as I
anticipated. It was thought at
signal ollice , ho would remain at his statio.ii
until September 1st , but ns I pointful out in n
letter to tlio Now York Herald on the 17th
of last September , If ho remained until Sep
tember Ixt ho could not got away at nil that
year , on account of the impracticability of
sledging operations along that const in the
full. 1 therefore thought ho would abandon
his station in July or August of 1883 and
eomo down to the north of Smith'd sound , In
boats , ns he was , in fact , doing at the very
tlmo my letter was written. "
"How important are the discoveries made
by Lieutenant Greoloyl"
"From the point of view of nn Arctic ge
ographer they nro of first-class importance ,
Lieutenant Greoly has not only taken away
from Commander Mnrkhnm , of the British
navy , the blue ribbon of Arctic discovery lor
the highest latitude over attained iu any part
of the world , but ho has greatly extendud the
limits of Nnros explorations , both in Green
land and Grinnell Land. The fact that two of
Greeloy'ssledgo parties were stopped in open
water in the Polar bisin and that both were
at ono time adrift Iu strong currents , which
threatened to carry them helplessly away
northward , would seem to show tlut the Po
lar basin is not a solid sea of ancient , immova
ble ice which Nares described , and which ho
declared was "never navigable. " Lieutenant
Groaly's explorations extend over three de
grees of la itudo and nearly forty degrees longi
tude. Ho has virtually ascertained the true
outline of Grinnell Land , and hos crossed it
from cast to west , and on the northern
coast , Greenland has . gone one
degree _ of latitude and ten degrees
o longitude beyond the farthest point reached
by Captain Nnres , accomplished sledging olli-
eur. Lieutenant Boaumout.
These achievements alone reflect the highest
credit upon Lieutenant Greely und his men ,
but to them , of course must bo udded the
great mass of scientific knowledge gathered
by the party durhiy their two years nt Lady

Incidents ol'tlio
ST. JOHNS , N. F. , July 17. On the arrival
at anchorage of the relief squadron to-day an
Associated proas correspondent interviewed
Lieutenant Grculy and other survivors of the
Arctic e.ilony and the following foots were
disclosed. After passing two winters nt
Kort Conger in scientific research Lieutenant
Greely , with his whole party intact , broke up
encampment and commenced a southwest
descent. This was accomplished amid great
penis from gales of wind , ice nips and other
casualties. Capo Sabine having been reached
a temporary homo was erected , built of
stones and covered by the boat's
sails brought along , by the party
on the ! 2'Jth ' of-Senteinbor ; winter quarter !
wcra ostaMishM nt'Capo R&himThe ; et-m-
mtfsariitt had Cccaino very moagro , nnd n
cache of provisions left by the Proteus last
your ; but poorly supplemented it. The steam
launch had become fast in the ica a few
weeks previous and had to bo abandoned dur
ing the whole winter. The first havoc in the
ranks was early in Januarv , when ot thu men
dropped off with scurvy. On the Oth of April
Lieutenant Lockwood and Mr. Kico , photog
rapher , succumbed after an heroic attempt to
secure for their starving comrades about 200
pounds of moat supposed to 1)3 cached
at a place named Bad creek , distant
about bftceu miles from the encampment.
Israel , the astronomer , perished May Ii7tb.
Lieutenant Kishlingbury died Juno 1st , and
Dr. Pavy , naturalist , slept in death Juno iGth. !
Not one of the victims realized that death was
near. Two Esquimaux also perished , ono of
starvation and the other drowned In his
kayak , being pierced by Homo newly
Formed ice April 17th thus cutting of | all hope
of getting any supply of seal meat for the
starving explorers , The Eskimo were moat
faithful and devoted followers nnd helpers of
Lieutenant Grculy. Ellison was repcued and
safely brought on board the fctoarnehip
Bear , where ho died a few days subsequently.
This is an extraordinary instance of human
endurance. While away some ten miles from
his hut last winter , the temperature suddenly
fell to 43 degrees below /.cro. His hands and
feet wcro frozen to the very bone and ho was
dragged by his companions in nlmoata dying
condition to hij hut. His foot and hnnili
were literally amputuated by ( jtho incisive
frost nnd in this terrible fctato h- >
lived through the dreary months that inter
vened. The rescued bodies of twelve of the
victims have boon brought up by the steamers
Boar and Thu tin. embalmed iu tank ] filled
with alcohol. The survivors are nil doing
well nnd are rapidly gaining llo h
and strength again. Lieutonaut Greely ,
who was in an exceedingly critical condition
when transferred to the Thetis , Is now able to
move about. This morning ho drove out for
an hour's riilo to got country air , nnd came
back resuscitated. The rescue took place on
the 'J2d of Juno under circumstance * of great
difficulty , Tlio Thotls nnd Boar lay off
from blioro about three hundred yards.
There was a terlflio gala blowing from
southwest and n heavy BO.I was running and a
formidable Ice nil ) was apparently inevitable.
Lieutenant Groely und the other six survivors
had to bo transferred from their camp to n
steam laupch and whale bout in their bleep-
lug bag * , and while tteaming from
land to the ships the destruction of the whole
party at ono tlmo seemed certain. The coa
swept furiously over them nnd the fury of the
wind threatened to cagul/.o them. At length
they were safely placed on board the rescuing
squadron , where every possible prepara
tion wnH made to insure their re
covery and comfort. The lireoly party
reached a higher latitude thah over reached by
polar explorers , namely , 83 degrees and iifi fi-UI

LOUISVIU.B , July 17. Louisville democrats ,
to the number of 5000 , ratified the national
ticket last night. Henry Wutterson wno ono
of the spankers. Itoferrlng to the tariff plank
ho said that the national committee lost the
election of 1880 by running away from the Is-
HUO of revenue rotorm. That thnt committee
was still in the hand * of the protectionists ;
that Its power "directed by the tine Italian
hand of Kamlall , wns sent forth to pack plat
form committees In the Into convention ,
Through it agency artfully employed the
democrats of five southern states were mis
represented on that rommlttoo , Hence the
disproportion which appeared In congress between -
twoon the followers ol Uandall und thu fol
lowers of Carlisle nnd Morrhon wai not main
tained in the committee. " Thu committed
was in point of .fact nearly equally divided.
Hut U Is fair to say It ii truu to Day , that
after the two extremes had stripped tlio ipiofi-
thm of mirplusago and had laid
down without dUguUo the full inoaturo
of their do-tlro and extent their demand ,
it appeared wu wcro not uo far opart un wo
had Imagined wo wero. And there came
about n bettor feeling undulontr with It a pro-
epect of agreement" . MrVnttornon wont
on to ray that platform AH muda by the nub-
committee the hearty approval of nil members
except Butler.
The speaker asserted ho wan fatlufiod and
that so were Carlisle nnd Morrison , Huwitt ,
Kurd und Morton , nnd these who acted with
the free traders , In 1680 a falsa Issue as to
the tailff was precipitated by thn republicans
late In the canvass , The democrats ran away
and wore beaten , In the coming canvass thu
Jlnuj are clearly laid down. No faint ) ismm
or now lesuo can bo sprung upon us and wu
nro not going to rim away , wu nro going to
stand nnd tight Intelligently and unanimously
nnd when thu battle in over and won wo nro
going to reduce the war taxtm at loatt § 100-
000,003 and rorUo the tariff and rodiico
it to pence hauls under a wisa
and just application of the principles unfolded
and specified by the platform adopted by the
national convention , which put Cleveland und
liondrlcltB liithu field. Confident of thu plat-
f rni 1 urn equally confident of the ticket ,
Cleveland has allied hlmwilf with all that in
clear und nober , upright and elevated in our
public lifo. llu In not u plumed knight , ho is
not n Uttood man , huis not n leglelutUu prlzo
lighter , uor u diplomatic pay actor , He never
In his life wrapped the American ling around
