VOL XV CAPTAIN R. F. SCOTT. English Explorer to Remain In the South Another Year. DISAPPOINTS ENGLISHMEN Had Hoped Scott Might Have Reached South Pole. London, April long and im- patiently awaited news ot Captain Scott's Antaictic expedition has at last but will bung the keen- est disappointment to Englishmen who had cherished the hope that the Brit- ish expedition might atter all prove to be first in the race tor the South pole. On Jan. 3, nearly three weeks after Amundsen hoisted the Norwegian flag at the pole. Scott still nad 150 miles to cover before attaining the object of his desne. WILL REMAIN SOUTH FOR ANOTHER YEAR Captain Scott 150 Miles From Pole on Jan. 3. -Wellington, N. 2., April Kobert F. Scott's vessel, Terra which carried the British expedition to the Antarctic, has arrived at Aka- roa, a harbor in Banks peninsula, N. Z, but has not brought back Captain Scott or the members ot his expedi- tion. The commander of the Terra Nova brought instead the following message trom Scott: "I am remaining in the Antarctic for another winter In order to continue and complete work." The latest news sent back by Cap- tain Scott to his base- at McMurdock sound that on Jan 3 he had reached a point 150 miles from the South polo and was still advancing It was clear that had the explorer delayed sending back notification of his progress until he actually reached the poie word from him could not have been received by the Te'-ra Nova before she was compelled to leave, owing to the setting in of winter and the freezing of the Ross sea. All on board the Terra Nova are well. Great disappointment was felt when it became known that the Scott party had been left behind. MEN TAKE LITTLE INTEREST Indications Are English Coal Miners Will End Strike. London, April miners are taking far less interest in the ballot to end the coal strike than they did in the ballot which began it. Prob- ably this Is because the result Is a foregone conclusion. In many dis- tricts only about half the men have voted. Tnis Indiflerence also probably accounts for the fact that Northumber; land, Lancashire and some other dis- tricts are voting against a resumption, only the Irreconcilables taking the trouble to vote. However, the aggregate voting is largely for a return to work and in- dications ?re that many men will have taken up their tools again before the final result of the polling is declared. In not a few districts the men already begun to reopen the roads and prepare tbe mines for a new start at the earliest moment. Several collieries !n Warwickshire have been reopened. HARD FIGHT IN WISCONSIN Wilson nad Clark Contesting for State Delegation. Washington, April is un- usual interest among Democratic poli- ticians here in the outcome of the pri- mary election in Wisconsin Tuesday. Governor Woodrow Wilson's friends have been claiming Wisconsin and un- til recently it looked as if he would easily carry the state. But in the last four weeks the friends of Speaker Clark put ap an unusually vigor- ous campaign and now claim the state Many Democratic leaders believe that if Governor Wilaon Joses Wisconsin he may aa well give up the fight. If he carries !t it will undoubtedly a grstt tc Ms candidacy. CLAIMS REFUSAL IS TAFT POLICY Dlxon Rips Minnesota Governor on Primary Stand. ROOSEVELT MANAGER BITTER Montanan Calls Attention to States Which Have Preferential Primary Laws aid Says Several Propositions Submitted by Roosevelt Supporters Have Been Rejected in Minnesota, to Call Extra Session' of the Legislature. Washington, April a state- ment made public Senator Joseph M. Dixon of Montana, the Roosevelt man- ager, is rather critical of Governor Kberhart of the governor's failure so far to call a special session of the Minnesota legislature to pass upon a presidential preference pri- mary, bill. Governor Eberhart's refusal up to date to assemble the legislature for the purpose indicated is declared by Mi. Dixon to he in linfa with the al- leged determination of the Taft lead- ers to prevent the enactment of presi- dential preference primary laws. Mr. Dixon began his statement withj a reference "to the passage ot a pii- mary law by the Maryland legislature. He said in part: "Maryland now takes her place with nine othei great states in providing lor a free, full and voluntary expres- fclon by the voters of the state of tbeir preference as to presidential candi- dates. The other states are Oregon, California, North Dakota, South Da- kota, Nebraska, Wisc6nsin, Illinois, New Jersey and Massachusetts. These ten states have an aggregate electoral rote of 118. "All reports reaching the Roosevelt headquarters show that, under the presidential preference primary, Mr. Taft's candidacy for renomination will be overwhelmingly repudiated in all these states by the Republican voters. "The new primary lavs in Massa- chusetts, Illinois and Maryland were all passed in response to the demand of the voters of these Open and Secret Opposition. "In all ihose states the movement met the open and secret opposition of the Taft managers and si'.ppoiters. The Roosevelt committee has also lent every support possible to the enact- ment of a similar law which is now ending bfetore the legislature of Mich- gan. The Taft managers in that state lave succeeded thus far in prevent- ng the immediate application of that v. 'A further commentary upon this situation is furnished by the action of the Taft supporters in Minnesota. In :hat state the Roosevelt, managers lave submitted sevvral propositions ooking to the determination through primaries of the preference of the Minnesota voters as to presidential andidates The Taft suppoiters, aid- ed by Governor Eberhart, have re- jected e.ery one of these proposals rne last suggebtion of the Roosevelt men was that tlit-> governor should call the legislature in special session for the enactment ot a presidential prefer- ence primary law. "Following Governor Eberhart's re- fusal newspapers of St. Paul began a poll of tho members of the legislature and it immediately developed that a majority were in favor ot the special session to pass the presidential pref- erence primary law. "The" Roosevelt committee of Minne- sota asked public expressions from the people of the state as to whether or not the statement of the governor that the eentiment of the state was overwhelmingly against an extra ses- sion were true. Hundreds of replies were received by the Roosevelt com- mittee favoring the special session and giving a clear indication that sentiment of the state is overwhelm- ing in favor of It "Nevertheless, Governor Eberhart continues to refuse to caH the special session. Wherever they possibly can prevent the enactment of presidential preference primary laws the Taft managers'and supporters may be re- lied upon to do so, for they know that the sentiment of the rank and file of the Republican party is overwhelming- ly against their candidate."
