BATTERED STEAMER ROOSE
VELT LIMPS SLOWLY IN
Expedition Snails Nearer the Pole
Ptary Says Gale Alone Pre
vented Success He Plans
- Another Expedition
Possible to Reach
Sidney, N. P., Nov. 23. After
beiog battered by ice and storms
daring her loDg stay in the Arctic
Saa, Commander Peary's steamer
Roosevelt arrived here tbismorning
in the' first calm she has experienc
ed in many weeks. Peary was giv
en a heartv welcome by the whole
community, but his heartiest greet
ing W8S from his wife, who has been
waiting here for two weeks tor his
return. He and all his men are
unstinting in their praise of tbe
Roosevelt, which, disabled, short of
fuel and with light wind, only made
a speed of five miles an hour across
the straits of Belleisle.
Commander Peary came ashore
almost immediately after the steam
er came to anchor, and joined Mrs
Peary. ' ; - ;.;:.:'
Commander Peary looks in the
best of health and spirits and,
though disappointed at the failure
to reach the- pole, he . is- satisfied
with the advance actually made.
Plans for another expedition will
probably -soon be made.
Dr. L. J.. Wolff said the health of
tbe party had b.en excellent. There
was no death - and . practically no
sickness. Dr. Wolff said1 that he
had not the slightest doubt, if the
gale in the early part of March had
not occurred; the role would have
been Teaehed without; difficulty. - i
Dr. Wolff said he and other mem
bere of the expedition intended to
stay by the Roosevelt until she
reached New York.
Captain John Bartlett, master of
the Rooeevelt, said the steamer was
a good sea boat, and t that he will
sail her to New York. He is readv
to go again to the arctic. Captain
Bartlett was in charge of one of the
parties supporting Commander
Peary's advance. He said the
storm that did the mischief was tre
mendous in. violence and accom
panied by blinding squalls of fine
Arctic snow. The ice-field was rent
badly asunder and all trace of tbe
track was destroyed. Under ordi
nary conditions, tracking is eaey in
the far north, as the enow packs
hard and bootmarks are .sometimes
preserved for six months.
Captain Bartlett is satisfied the
Pols can be reached without great
d. faculty, weather permitting, and
believes it would have been accom
plished this trip except for the gale
First mate Bartlett, a cousin of
the captain, who has been north be
fore, but never remained there pri
or to this trip, said the crew of the
ship was well protected , and well
fed and the Roosevelt was a staunch
ship, but be did not think many o
the Newfoundland members of the
present .crew would be found will
ing to joio another expedition. It
was a hard experience which few
men cared to repeat.
Several other ' members cf the
cr-wJ.aoluding some of the engib
eera stall, expressed similar senti
ments. Their n:om plaint was di
rected, not to treatment by Peary
but to the privations and dangers
of the work. Generally they seem
sauened with the ship and he
stores and equipment.
Alter readlns tne letters accutr
ulated during the cast fortnight
Commander Peary decided not to
leave Sidney today. He and his
party, will leave by rail tomorrow
for New York. "
it ere was a gap ot loo miles in
the survey of Grantland by the
English expedition on one hand
and. that of the Sverdiup discover
ies on the other. Peary has closed
this up. - Probably the only section
of unknown coast remainiog in the
Arctic is the northeast ? coaBt of
Greenland, embracing 150 miles.
. Commander Peary is enthusias
tic about the performance of tbe
stea mer-Roosevelt.1 Asked if the
advanced point at which he had
been able to place the ! Roosevelt in
winter quarters was due tobarelul
and ' increased ' knowledge' of the
: moveme'if the ice.' he said it was
idue to jRoQsevelt "herself.1' He
did not believe there was ever anoth
er ship afloat that coold have stood
the battle with ice the Rooseve't
had successfully fought. The boil
ers were the one defective feature
of the ship. More than half the
power of the ship was represented
by water tube boilers and these gave
out shortly after the Roosevelt left
Sidney in I9O5.
Commander Peary has received
a large number of congratulations
and requests the Associated Press
to circulate the following general
'Commander Peary desires to
make, preliminary acknowledge
ment and express his deep appreci
ation of the numerous letters and
elegrams of cougratulations which
have been sent him. As rapidly as
possible he will make direct and in
Portland, Nov. 35. Oregonian:
Fifty pair of English Skylarks im
ported by the Song Bird Club will
be liberated this afternoon by B.
Fallows, president, and 0. F. Pfln
ger, one of the leading members.
Part of. the birds will be given tbeir
liberty on Council Crest and the
others will be released on tbe mead
ows east of the city. It is thought
the birds will thrive in both locali
ties. , . .. .,i; ;
Scratching to the south of Coun
cil Crest is a vast area of rich mead
ow land, while east of the river
there is also a great deal of grass
land. The climate of England is
very similar to that of Western Or
egon, navmg consiaeraDie rain in
the winter, and for this reason it is
thought that the birds will have no
trouble in Bbuting for themselves.
It is hoped that within two or
three years the meadows, around
Portland will be well stocked with
the skylarks, as they propagate rap-
ialy. Each pair under favorable
conditions brings up about ten
fledglings in a Beason. The males
are wonderful 6ingrrs, but the fe
males are mute. The "male sings
only while ascending high into tte
air and while descending.
Next Bpring the Song Bird Club
will import several dozen English
nightingales and black-capped nigh
ingales. They are described as
beautiful singers. Every year birds
will be imported from England and
continental Europe until song
birds of all' descriptions abound
here. About 16 years ago a dozan
ekylarke were liberated near Port
land. Toey have spread all over
the Willamette Valley, but in no
one locality are they found in large
numbers. There are eo few, la tact
that they are rarelv seen, but occa
sionally reports are received of their
Tbe Song Bird Ulub has a mem
bership of about 40 persons. It was
organized several months ago for
the purpose of introducing song
birds in Oregon, and the skylarks
are, the first to arrive. , The mem
bers of the club are regularly as
sessed to meet the expenses of im
porting birds, but there is some tdlk
of askiDg the Oregon legiflatura to
make an appropriation to assist in

YOUNG SLOANE LOSES
AIR OF BRAVADO IN
Wheelbarrow Brought Into Court
With Load of . Bloody Rugs and
Axe With Which the Mur
der WaB Done His
Mother Weeps '
Spokane, Wash., Nov. 23. Po-
lice Sergeant McPhee in the trial
of Sidney Sloane, the youthful slay
er of bis father, testified late yester
day that the boy "Voluntarily, con
fessed to having committed the
crime. The 18-year-old defendant
was on the verge of breaking down,
when tbe gruesome spectacle of the
wheelbarrow,, the axe with which
the brutal crime was committed and
the bloody rags were presented to
the jury. ;
Mrs. Sloan completely, lost bee
control and began weeping aloud.
She placed her hands oyer her eyes
and gave full vent to her grief.
A remarkable case of devotion ia
that exhibited by Mrs. J. F. Sloane
towards her son. She has not only
sacrificed her fortune to save her
boy from the gallows but has been
a constant attendant at the trial,
not having miesed a session even
during the tedious work of the first
eight days in securing tbe jury.
She daily sits by the side of , her
boy, and her anxiety is in strong
contrast with that of the boy him
self, who seems to take but little
interest in what is going on and
spends much of his time in playing
with the furs which his mother
wears. Ooe might think that he
bad no personal interest in tbe trial
and it is only on rare occasions that
be appears to notice what the wit
nesses or attorneys are siying.
When Prosecutor Barnhart was
making his statement to the jury in
which he pictured the horrid man
ner in which the crime was com
mitted, tbe father being strnck
down while engaged in eating a
light luncheon preparatory to re
tiring with his son lor tbe night, fol
lowing it with a description of the
dragging of tbe body, down the
stairs, calmly emptying a Wheel
barrow of its load of apples and de
positing therein tbe body and wheel
it to an alley, where it was uncere
moniously dumped upon a pile of
refuse, the young patricide, sitting
by bis mother, showed no emotion
but cooly stared at tbe prosecutor.
At the opening of the trial the
youthful defendant received the tes
timony with a bravado that was re
ally astonishing, but as the evidence
became sirong and officers told cf
the boy's confession and related
other matters conoected with tbe
murder, Sdaey glome becarr
sbaky. Not orjce did be look at a
witness arid even refused to turn
his head when bit" ncotlrer spoke to
bim regarding certain testimony of
