Eighth Trip to Frozen Regions The Snow Baby Grown UpThe Roosevelt A 4 t O long as the north pole remains S undiscovered it will continue to be the goal of adventurous ex peditions into the regions of the Arctic ocean When the pole is once placed in the domain of things we know about and the mystery surround ing it is cleared away the scientist may still take an interest in journeys to the far north in the marking of coast lines and descriptions of animal and vegetable life but the north pole itself will not be apt to exert the fas cination upon the popular mind that it does now as an undiscovered and hence mysterious entity Commander Robert E Peary who has just started on what he declares will be his last trip to the polar re gions is as enthusiastic as ever in his quest If I do not make a suc cessful dash he said before leaving I do not think I shall try againnot because I have failed but because 1 am growing old I have the same en thusiasm but the years are piling up on me Commander Peary was fiftytwo years old in May last It is thirtyone years since he graduated from Bow doin twentyseven since he entered the United States navy as a civil engi neer and twentytwo since he went his first arctic trip and made his onI noissance of the inland Greenland qap It is just a score of years since he married Miss Josephine Diebitsch who went with him on his expedi tions of 18912 and 18934 as far winter quarters in Greenland and asI was the first white woman to with an arctic expedition It while her parents were in the wasI that Marie Ahnighito Peary the snow baby was

wrapped in the stars and stripes She kicked and crowed in a crib made out of a soap box in a little frame house thickly covered and bound together by a glittering sheeting of ice This is Pearys eighth journey to the far north He came within 200 miles of the pole in 1906 when he reached 87 degrees 6 minutes the farthest point north that any white man has ever been and lived to tell the tale

within my reach I weighed the chances in my mind Then I came back Commander Peary thinks the lesson t of that journey will be a help in win ning success in this expedition He has taken every possible precaution against accident failure of supplies etc The steamship Roosevelt which was equipped for this expedition by the Peary Arctic club at acostor about 50000 contains a splendid outi fit

New York one of the most influential social organizations in the country and containing a large number of repre sentative Republicans in its member ship Mr Sheldons choice for the post of treasurer of the national committee was in part due to the fact that in the campaign of Charles E Hughes for the governorship of New York in 190G he raised a fund of 333 92360 and made a public accounting of every cent of it under the new pub GEORGE B SHELDON licity law of New York state Mr Sheldon was himself a leading candi date for his partys nomination as lieu tenant governor several years ago He was born

1906 He is a director in a number of banking and Industrial corporations and in several street railway companies HOMELESS JUDGE TAFT The Republican Presidential Nominee Is Used to Being on the Move Since he resigned his post as secre tary of war and gave up his Washing ton residence William H Taft has been as be himself put it a candi date without a job a man without a home The residence in the nations capital which for some years past has been pointed out as the home of the exwar secretary is a substantial look ing and well appointed house but is not at all palatial Judge Taft himself is not a rich man for he has been serving his country since early man hood in posts of responsibility and im portance the income from which was little if any more than sufficient to support the incumbent and his family in a manner becoming their station The Tafts have always regarded Cin cinnati as their home city but it is a long time since Judge Taft has kept up an establishment of his own there It is over eight years since he first went to the Philippines and Manila was his headquarters for more than four years thereafter Even after he became secretary of war he was on the jump from one part of the world to another to settle problems con nected with the insular possessions of the government or the Panama canal tNTBANCE TO THE FORMER RESIDENCE OF JUDGE TAFT IN WASHINGTON or Cuba This summer

reached the state department confirm the press reports that the Honduran government forces have retaken the small town of Gra cias and add that they are about to move to the more important city of Choluteca To this extent the govern ment appears to have the advantage On the other hand Honduras was men aced from the southern borders On the Caribbean sea border there are continually reiterated reports of an at tack on Puerto Cortez while General Lee Christmas whom the state de partment officials style a soldier of for tune is reported in the country just a few hours from Puerto Cortez The force mentioned in one of the dis patches as being on a small island about eighteen miles distant from Puerto Cortez is presumably the one from which an attack is feared The state department is being fully advised of the situation in the whole Central American country but Mr Dodge the minister to Honduras and Salvador ex plains that reliable information is difficult to obtain Meantime the Ameri can and Mexican governments con tinue to use their best efforts to con serve peaceful conditions in that part of the world but have gone to the ex tent thus far only of offering their friendly As mediationIence is peace and amity agreed on at the Washington peace conference Article 17 of that treaty provides specifically that every person no matter what his nationality within the territory of one of the contracting parties who shall Initiate or foster revolutionary move ments against one of the others shall be immediately brought to the capital of the republic where he shall be sub mitted
