Maa Who Attempted to Corropt Ml
tloaal I.eagrae Official Barred.
CINCINNATI, April . Th National
Baa Ball commission announced today that
aa a result of Its investigation of charges
that an attempt waa made to bribe Umpires
Johnston and Klein during the Chicago
New York National league game at the
Polo ground last fall proof has been ob
tained tnat the attempt to bribe wa made.
The names of th guilty persona are kept
secret. ,-. .
Th official atatement by the National
commission Is aa follows:
"Thi matter was referred to the Na
tional commission by the National league
and pertalna to certain statements made
by Umpires Klem and Johnstone that an
attempt was made last fall to bribe them
with reference to a game that they had
umpired end which took place between the
Chicago and New York National league
cluba on the Polo grout ds.
"We have made a full and thorough in
vestigation of all of. th matters that .have
been nroented tor our consideration with
reference to thi aubject. We believe that
the atatement as made by the umpires ara
true and that an effort waa mad to bribe
them with reference to thoir duties. The
same, however, wsa unsuccessful snd the
umpires are deserving of th highest com
mendation, not only on the part of til
National commiaaion. but of all of . those
who ere Interested In organised base ball
as well.
"In this mattar the commission would not
hesitate a moment to Institute a moat rigid
prosecution against the offender if It had
the power to do so and the corroborative
testimony to sustain the chargea a made
by the umpires. We feel, however, that In
the absence or this the party charged with
this offense by th umpires should not go
unpunished, end for that reason we will
furnish to every major league club owner
th name of the person who attempted the
offense with Inatruetlona to null club own
er to bar him from their respective
grounda tor all time to come."

Relt of the Shaekleton Expedition
Compared with Prevloa
What did the Shaekleton expedition to
the Antarctic learn that was not reported
by Captain Robert T. Bcott on hi return
to civilisation In 1804 T
It wa already known, or believed, that
no land mammal existed wllhln the Ant
arctic Circle no bears or foxes, such as
may b found In th far north. The only
mammals encountered and reported by Dr.
Wilson of th earlier expedition wer sea
mammals; ore, rorqual, flnner and beaked
whale, and crab eating, Roas and Weddoll
seals within the Antarctic Circle.' The
seal known a sea leopard and ea ele
phant wer found on the pack lc north
of K. Along South Victoria Land twelve
different kinds of bird were sighted,
chiefly petrels, and also a small tern, the
ooly and black browed albatrosse and the
blue gray whale bird these In th open ss
and along the Great lc Barrier. About
th winter quarter under Mount Erebus
th emperor penjruln, four feet high, tame
knd almost human in It aspect and way;
th Adell penguin and McCormlck tkua
la trull) were habitual neighbor of the
explorers. On the return from th "farthest
south" (463 mile from th pole) a solitary
kua waa seen; but in th desolate Interior
ther waa no life. Except mosaea and llnch-
n no vegetation wa noted. The terri
torial fauna. If the term can bo used of
uch vital barrennee. consisted of a wing
less Insect approximating to a fly.
Now, as Shaekleton', party, pushing
their perilous way south, met with only
glacier and ranges of snow mountains. It
may be uiumtd that th biologist of the
expedition will have nothing or very little
aid to add to Mr. Wilson' report at least
of life In th Interior south of the point
attained by Captain Scott, Lieutenant
Shaekleton and Dr. Wilson in 1908, which
was latltud 82 degrees 16 minute 33 sac
ondS) longitude 184.
But of th topography of th so-called
continent th hardy and Indefatigable
Shaekleton, who almost perished of scurvy
in th prevlou venture, learned a good
deal more than Captain Bcott. Tho latter
tn hi account of th Discovery expedition
wrote: ' '
Tho main geographical Interest of our
expedition lie In thj practical . observation
of a coast lin from Mt. Melbourne in
latitude 74 degrees to Mt. Longstaff In
latitude 88 degree, and of th condition
which He to the east and west of thi Una.
Our previous knowledge extended only to
that part which lie between Mt. Mel
bourne and McMurdo sound, and of this
w had th vaguest description.
Captain Scott and hlparty travelled with
dog aledgea over th lc plateau, which he
supposed to b afloat although of vast
area, and kept within tight of the moun
tain ranges that form the eoaat of Victoria
Land. After gaining an altitude of 8,800
feet they traversed "a level plain," and
Captain Bcott ,says; "The Great Ice. Bar
rier I afloat a far a wa traveled.'' They
were finally stopped by a crevasse they
could not descend Into and on their return
Journey they lost all their dog (Just as
Lieutenant Shaekleton lost alt hi ponies)
and came near dying of scurvy. They
named mountain which they never
reached, Longstaff 00,360 feet) and Mark
ham (16,000 feet),. and Captain Bcott waa of
th opinion that the Ice plain aklrtlng th
mountain range extended even to th south
pole. ;
What Lieutenant Shaekleton did wa to
pas tho very point at which the party In
1903 stopped, and push on 863 mile further,
only to be baffled, with th Ice plateau
stretching before his eyes, by th same
condition of hunger, fatigue and loss of
animal that mad the "dash" of Bcott,
Wllaon and himself a failure. Ha seems,
however, to hav been favored by milder
weather. H learned that th mountain
range continued along the plateau, and he
will be able lo furnish the Royal Geo
graphical society with a new map contain
ing peaks named by himself. "We dis
covered eight distinct mountain ranges,"
he says, "and more than a hundred moun
tain." Almost equal tn Interest and of
more Importance scientifically than wa the
ascent to the crater or Up of Erebus. This
was a prodigious feat If tho courageous
fhackleton failed at a point which would
probably hav been in sight of the locality
of the smith pole on a clear day, tf h
could hav atood upon a mountain top. It
wa because the human fram wa not
equal to th hardships to b endured.
There will be other attempts, and let us
lops that the consummation will finally
fall to a man of his deserts. New York
