The heavy rain of Monday night la held
accountable fpr the alim attendance at the
good- roads' meeting yesterday At Lake
Manama. The meeting waa advertised to
commence at 10:30 o'clock In tha morning,
but there being arj few present at that hour
It was decided to postpone proceedings until
I o'clock In the afternoon.
Chairman Brandea of the county board
of supervisors, who waa to have presided,
failed to reach the city until late In the
afternoon and Colonel W. F. Baker, the
promoter of the meeting", presided In. his
stead. The program aa advertlecd waa car
ried out, even to the' demonstration of
road-making, a portion of the road lead
ing to the lake reaort being gone over with
the county grader drawn by ten horaea and
a heavy roller. This waa at the conclusion
of the program In the Casino.
Mayor Macrae In his characteristic man
ner delivered an address of welcome, dur
ing which he stated that while he had been
born and raised In Council Bluffs, he waa
aorry to say he knew nothing labout good
roads, but could tell hla audience consid
erable about bad roads.
Thomas H.' McDonald.-' secretary of tha
Iowa Good Roads association and member
of the faculty of the State college at Ames,
told of what la being done for good roads
In thla atate. The auhjeet, he aald, "waa
being brought prominently before the peo
ple by the press, through farmers' Insti
tutes and meeting, and thla; year the ques
tion had been given prominence !-i the
chautauquaa.- He told of the Inter-" t the
railroads, were taking In the mate-- and
how they were aendlng out special trains
with D. Ward King of Maltland, Mo., the
"apostle of the road drag," to spread the
gospel along their several linea. Mr. Mc
Donald la also a member of the atate high
way commission and he told of what that
body waa doing for the betterment of tha
The principal address of the afternoon
waa by f. Ward Kin, the advocate of the
apllt log road drag. "On ninety-nine out of
every 100 miles of highway In Iowa I could
do anything with the apllt log road drag
and a plow that you can do with a four
horae grader" waa one of Mr. King's state
ments. He said that the roads In Iowa
had enough money expended on them and
that they. were worked enough, but that
the trouble was that they did not get
enough care. With a small model of the
rood drag Mr. King, In a very Intelligent
manner, explained Its working. Mr. King
also advocated macadam for,..heavHy-trav-eled
highways and said that every up-to-date
city or town sugat to have at leaat
four macadamised thoroughfares leading
out from It.
. In concluding his address Mr. King asked
the audience, "How many of you on going
home "are going to make a apllt jpg road
dragt" - He " asked '-fof a ' show, of right
bands' and two went up, one of which be
longed to Former Mayor M. Fr Rohrer,
who occupied a seat on- the platform. The
reault waa evidently .considerably disap
pointing to the speaJker."

Third Man Takes Desperate Chances
" Escapes, "..
Two men giving their - names aa S. 0,
Sparka and Hafrv Warner, who were ar
rested about 2 o'clock Tuesday morning
for fast driving, drunkenness and cruelty
to animals are auspected of being impli
cated In the hold-up of W. J. Cuslck's aa-
loon In Omaha Sunday night In police court
yeaterday morning they were sentenced to
twenty-fjye days ftn bread and Mater each,
but later In the day were taken' to Omaha,
both consenting to go across .the riytr
without requisition papers. A third member
of the party escaped after" being placed
under arrest, by leaping from the motor car
oa which Jie was .being taken to the city
Monday evening three men hired single
rig from M.E. Weuthrrboe, a Broadway
li,veryman and aa they had not returned at
a late hour, Weatherbee notified the police.
Detectlva-RluhArdseni who was pn duty in
the western part of -the city, waa detailed
to watch for the outfit. While at the in
tersection of Avenue-A and Thirty-seventh
he saw a rig being driven, rapidly from a
road house on North Thirty-seventh street.
He recognised the rig aa the oae wanted
and called to. the three men in It to st p.
Instead they turned the horse sharply onto
the motor tracks on Avenue A . and the
officer, who was close to them, fired hn
revolver Into the air as a. warning for them
to atop. - . r . . '
The shot caused the horse to Jump for
ward and the two men sitting on the out
side were thrown out and before they could
recover themselves and get away were ar
reated. Detective Richardson placed his
prisoners on an eaatbound motor to bring
them up town. As the officer turned to the
conductor to aak that he atop tha car It
they' overtook the buggy, one of tSe prison
era made a flying leap Over the car rail.
He waa aeeh to fall In ' a heap but Boon
picked hlmeelf up and disappeared In the
darkness. The other man was brought to
tha station and later the man ' with the
buggy waa picked up by Officer Sharer.
A revolver holster waa found on one of
the prisoners and at daybreak yeaterday
morning a search of the place where the
two men were thrown from the buggy
resulted In the finding of two revolvers.
It Is believed by the police that the men
had the revolvera In their hnds when
throws out of the buggy.
Detectlvea Mitchell and Davis of Dm''t
took a look at the two men' under arrru
and were strongly of the opinion that they
were the men wanted In Omaha ' for the
Cualck saloon holdup. . Later In the day
Cuslck was shown the prisoners and ha
ldtitlfled one of the two as the short man
of the trio' which held up the saloon. He
alao Identified the revolvera .aa those uaed
by tha robbers. . ( ,
Ttie police are inclined to believe that fhe
third man who took aurh deeperate chaacea
to effect hla eecepe. waa the much wanted
and elusive Pat Crowe.
Detectlv Hettfeldt of Omaha, brought
over laat evening a late photograph of Pat
Crowe, which waa shown Art Weatherbee,
who delivered the rur to the. trio at lha

FIALA TALKS OF HIS TRIP
Head of the Late Polar Expedition
Jell of Ills Esperlenre la
the Far Sorth.
HULL. England, Aug. 22. Anthony Flala
of Brookryn, N. Y., leader of the Zlegler
Polar expedition, the members of which
were rescued by the relief ship Terra Nova
under- the command of William 8. Champ,
secretary of the late William Zelgler, ar
rived here today on his way to the United
States. He came ahead of the Terra
Nova, which Is expected tomorrow. Mr.
Fiala said to the Associated Press:
This has been another In the long list
of failures to reach the pole, unless the
three determined attempts to reach high
latitudes should be considered as not
having proved altogether futlls, hut al
though the great question of the "pole re
mains, unsolved, we have brought back
data which should prove of sclenilllc value
and have explored and surveyed the archi
pelago from Crown Prince Rudolph land,
to Cape Flora, discovering four new chan
nels snd three large islands.
Failing to find an opening In the ice In
longitude M degree! 67 mlnutea east, lati
tude 7 degrees 67 Vnlnutes north, we de
termined to force a wav through at the
forty-eighth parallel. Here we were im
prisoned for four days, finally getting
through with the use of guncotton.
At the end of August,' 1H03, we reached
Tepllts bay, the most northern harbor
of Frans Josef land, where a base and
camp were established.
The America had a narrow escape on
October 22, 1SH0, when it broke adrift,
finally, however, being brought back to
its anchorage where it was crushed Just
about a month later.
A shelter was built on shore and the
members of the expedition were kept busy
during the week preparing for the spring
sledge Journey and in sclentlrto work,
which was retarded by severe storms.
The first sledge party left March 7,
1904, but was compelled to return owing
to Injuries received by several of the men
after reaching Cape Fllgely. A second
attempt, made on March 25. likewise re
sulted In failure, the sledges being smashed
when but a short distance from land.
Leaving a small party at the base I re
turned to Cape Flora, the trip occupying
Relief failing to arrive, In September, 1P04,
I, accompanied by William J. Peters of the
L nlted States geological survey, and a small
sledge party, started back to the base,
which was reached November 22. 1S)4, after
a most eventful and dangerous trip, rough
Ice having to be crossed In dense darkness
and the men and dogs fnlllng Into holes
and crevices and running against walls of
ice. Crossing Honker Island two of the men
fell Into a crevice for a distance of sixty
five feet and were wedged between walls
of Ice. Their rescue was attended with the
greatest difficulty, one being so injured that
he had to be lashed to a sledge.
With the exception of a Norwegian fire
man, who had died, we found all the party
at the base In good health and preparations
were again bepun for another slcdfe trip
to the northward.
The weather delayed the partv until
March 1, 1906. On this day the party left
the base which we renamed tape Ahriizil
for the ice pack to the north. Crossing
a glacier east. of Cape Rath, we forced a
way to the nortward, but our progress was
slow, the Ice being rough' and the men
having to first cut away and then to assist
the teams over the rouKh road. High tem
perature and Togs also .helped to delay
our progress. For two dayand three nlghta
we were In a temperaturei of 34 degreea
above sero when It should have been below
sero and the Ice waa constantly cracking
uner the tents.
I nder these conditions and with the press
ing need of sending suppjles to the party

Allms, seventeen daya late, with eight
passengers and a cargo of rotted bananas
and with the bones of half eaten aharks
on board to Indicate the perils ol Its
voyage, arrived off Scotland lightship last
On July the Donald Bteamshlp com

Jamaica, for New York, a six days" voy

short period. Three hours out of port
an eccentric rod on the engine broke and
from that hour until last Sunday, pro
ceeding sometimes only an hour a day
under Ita own steam, the Athos drifted at
the merry of storms. In constant danger of
famine, once without drinking water, and
receiving supplies from time to time from
passing vessels until on Ayfust 20 the
disabled steamer gave up and signalled
the stesmer Altai for a tow. This steanier
brought the Athos to New York.
The trouble waa In the engine all of tho
time. From July SO to August 7 one to two
breaks dally la the nglne were recorded.
The log chronicles the fact that the dally
delay waa only thirty minutes long on
Two days later the catching of sharks Is
recorded. Chinamen on board attempted
to eat the aharks, but the meat made them
ill and the fish weee thrown Into the sea.
During the next two days boats were

Some dolphin were caught two daya later
and on August 1.1 tha Incipient famine was
further relieved by the ateamer Monte
video, which supplied provisions.
For nearly a week, between August 10 and
17, the englne'a ahsft was useless, and not
onjy waa the ateamer forced to drift about
while repairs were under way, but for
two days of this period a great storm
and high seas broke over the helplest
steamship. The log meanwhile Indicates
that more dolphin were caught. Finally,
on August 18, the coupling flange broke
and the Athos abandoned the attempt to
make New York under Ita own steam, after
twenty days of continuous accidents. It
was decided to accept the first offer of
a tow.. This did not come for two daya,
during which a second food famine was
averted by the ateamer Vera, wbloh came
alongside the Athos, supplying eatables
and drinkables. '
Worse even than the. dangers of fnrnlre
and of thirst, the passengers say, was the
odor of the decaying banana cargo.
At Scotland lightship last night the tow
line broke as a last chapter to Its long
series of accidents and the Athos could
not repair the broken line In the dark, hut
anchored for the night while the Altai
brought Its passengers to quarantine. To

The passengers were John Douglas Don

Julia Anna Damshee, the bey's aunt; Mr.
and Mrs. Morris Lunn of Rosebank, S. I.,
and Keith and Fred ..Saunders . .of Bay
bridge, boy friends of young Donald, and
Henry Tamke. The whole party were
guests of John A. Donald, president of the
Donald Steamship company, who sent" them
on the Athos for a hummer vacation trip.
Tha Altai towed tha Athos twenty-six miles.
Passengers of the Athos on landing today
reported that the famine caused small
mutinies among Jhe ship's crew of eighteen
Chlnumen. Trouble first started among
the coolies over the dearth of tobacco and
rice. A negro helper waa stabbed during
