The first day at the J?ole 'was cloudy, with & mock sun. The second day, January 18, was clearer and the �un visible. Sights were taken, for which, purpose Scott used a four-inch theodolite. Captain Amundsen used a- sextant with an artificial horizon. The. fixing, of the Pole by. the two explorers differed by only half ,a mile, practically locating the same spot. Scott's observations gave latitude 89 degrees 559% minutes. "The :parcy marched the extra half-mile, taking with them their motor sledge, and'planted the Union Jack in latitude 88.; The had previously picked up Norwegian dog tracks, and they followed these to . the Norwegian camp, which was situated within three miles of the Pole. The track of the Norwegian dogs..'was1 obliterated "by drifts at .intervals. The party found all the records and gear left, by Amundsen. Sastrugi from two directions marked at the Pole gaveevidence of a slight blizzard since Amundsen erect. �d his tent. ' .'' ' "The temperature at the Pole was . about 20': degrees below zero. The �surface,'like that of the barrier,, was soft, no crust, it was'found from ; snow Collected from any. depth on melting, was also unlikc the ��barrier . snow, and gave, very little moisture. "Ten photographs of Captain Scott and his'party were taken at the Pole. The.'flimp _were recovered and devel-oped'-.at Cape Evans,.with two photograph's' of :'t'he, Norwegian tent as Cap-tain Scptf found.it;:,' * �'���� "The return.Journey over.the plateau was marked by a'serlesiof good marches Mn.r^njedibmv weather. The temperature:; averaged.' between 20 and 30 degirees below zero,:and. the marcli-os (.^le,d.eighteen miles dally, to the tbp'ofVtlrr, 'Beardmbre Glacier.' Both the depots on the plateau, one 89 de- grees south, and the other under' Mount Darwin, 85 degrees, seven minutes south, were secured. "Before descending Beardmore Glacier, Dr. Wilson and Lieut/ Sowers visited Buckley Island, ahd'ciimbed to. a large nunatack at the top of the glacier. Here they spent some-time mftk> ing a large collection; ot fossil-bearing sandstones and coal>m quantitieB.The fossll8 should finally settle the agc of the latest sedimentary-deposits yet found in .Victorialandv and certainly are the best ever obtained in this quadrant. "Leaving- Buckley Island,; and going down the glacier, they passed Mount Kinsey, a magnificent dolemite peak, having an altitude of 11,000 feet and forming an admirable''steering point. When they reached a small depot under Cloudmaker Mountain, they made another halt for geological investigation. -Fronv the side of Cloud-maker mountain fossils of much greater age were found in the light stone, and..a total of thirty-five pounds of geological specimens were carefully packed. These specimens were taken forward by the part to the last camp, and are now in possesfelon of: the expedition. From Cloudmaker Mountain to the foot of the 'Beardmore Glacier, the surface.encountered by. the party �coneisted of the same deep snow as on the way up and this fact, .together with bad weather severely hampered their-march.. The.weather was about normally, thick, with snow cry-stalls falling, the surrounding land being only occasionally visible. Evans' Illness Capt. Scott dates the beginning-of the failure of Petty Officer Edgar Evans from the time of'reaching the Pole. He was a .great anxiety to them on the plateau, and; in the descent of the Beardmore Glacier when the. party got among very rough ice, Evans fell, injuring his head and sustaining serious concussion." �>:�� " During the whole of the', desebnt .his condition delayed the party. On Febr ruary \17, while on the: march,- Evans' foot worked out of-his, ski and he was compelled to fall'.to adjust it. The party moved along, and, seeing ho was not following, they camped and cooked a meal, anticipating that Evans would soon reach the tent. When the meal was ready and he'had not arrived,- the :party:went hack and found him.in a .state of .collapse^ He bravely tried to. go forward, but had never relinquished their gallant struggle, but fought on heroically to- the bitter end. As recorded in a previous despatch, the search party found their tent on Nov. 4, 1912. It was hall covered with snow, and the sledge with their gear was completely covered. The tent was well spread with an inner tent placed on poles. The bodies having been identified, the inner tent was placed over them and a large cairn of snow was' erected and a. cross placed on the top bearing the words : The EpitAtb "Left this coss and cairn erected over the remains of Capt. Scott, C. V. O. R. N.; Dr. E. A- Wilson, and Lieut.' H. R. Bowers, R. N., as a slight token to perpetuate their gallant and successful attempt to reach the Pole. This they did on the seventeenth day of Jan. 1912, after the Norwegian had already done so on the first day oi Mce. 1011. "Also to commemorate their two gallant comrades, Capt. R. E. G-. Oatcs, of Inniskilling Dragoons, who walked to his death in a blizzard willingly about 20 miles south'.of this place to try and save his comrades, beset by hardship, and Petty Officer Edgar Evans, who died at the foot of Beardmore glacier. "The Lord gave and the Lord tak-ctb away. Blessed be the name of the Lord." This record was signed, by all members of the searching party. Surgeon Atkinson stated that no symptom of scurvy v existed. All the records of the southern party hawing been collected, � the whole search party proceeded ; three miles south to search for the body of Capt. Oates, but no tracs of it was found. Near the spot of his departure from his comrades a cross tlori probably was the deciding factor." weakened the party and made an in-1 . � .-�,�..�__, road, into their 'surplus provisions, which was serious .in view of ' the fact that the season was. unduly.- advanced. / ���:�� Owing to the lateness of the ..season and the subsequent falling temperature, the surface became sandlike as is well known in colder climates.
