AN ARCTIC 1tKMi:K STATION.
The thirteen whalers which were
caught in tlio ico in tho Arctic
ocean late in the present season,
served to ralco tlio question as to
'what can bo done to meet nnyother
contingency of a like character,
'says the San Francisco Bulletin.
'These whalers got out of the difll
culty all right. After they had
found their way out, theoldeBt and
' most MicccHHful captain of the Pa
'ciflc "Whaling company ran the
Btoanier Orca into the Hatne opening
and captured four whales. No men
were lost by shipwreck of whalers
during the pant season. The thir
teen whalers caught in the ice, and
whoso prospects of getting out with
their ships were very slim, had not
a stock of provisions sullleient in
tlio aggregate to last about four
hundred men more than sixty days.
Tlio nearest land was Herald Island,
about forty miles distance. On tills
Island there Is not a vestige of any
thing to sustain human life. The
men might liuve readied the Island,
but in all probability they would
have perished there. Not only is
tho Island void of all animal life,
but there is no wood or coal for fuel.
Occasionally a stick of timber may
drift from tho main land in tlio
' s uniuer season and lodge on the
Island, lint the driftwood becomes
embedded In tho ico so that there is
u poor chance of getting it out In
tho winter season.
' If tho crow of these thirteen whal
1 era had seen their vessels go down,
'its thoy expected and had escaped
on to the solid lee, t hoy would have
made for the nearest laud. That
would hiive been the desolate Her
ald Island. They would not have
survived tho winter there with
such stores as thoy could have car
ried on their backs, and indeed,
would not liavo survived hail thoy
carried oil' all the ship store h.
The whulo llslieries of tlio Arctic
reached by tlio northwest coast are
' dlstlned to a much greater de
'vulopiiiont. Indeed, for tho few
"hundreds now engaged, this force
'limy lio Increased to thousands.
There will, in all ' probability, bo
some (Hasten. Tlio steam whalers
will pirns their way up to the high
est latitude. They may at no dls
'tant day reach points as high as
any exploring vessels have ever
gone. If the north polo is ever
reached It may bo by some ono of
these steam whalers, which might
follow an open lead in some favor
able season until this goal of Arctic
exploration has boon readied. Hut
the bolder tho enterprise tho greater
the probability that there may be
some Increase of disasters In tho
Arctic, a probability, however,
which nlay bo lessened by tho grad
ual displacement of sail vessels by
Tun Chronicle editorially says:
"Washington territory is clearly ou
titled to admission Into tho Union
as a state, not only because she pos
sesses tho ivqulnlto population, but
l'oomiM of her rapid strides and
