Latest dispatches from Cadiz state the j munication with Moose factory, where the naval officers landed, and the only information received hera was that sent out from Mattiija. fol- lowing the arrival then1 of the Indian ..liu brought the message of the safe- ty of the officers from the Hudson Bay factor at the James Bay pool. The Indian runner did not proceed farther than Matties and I: is heller- ed here he started hack for Moose Factory after delivering his message. Tho nearest Hudson Bay post tn Cochrane is in Clute township, but the only means of connection is through the tri-weekly mail service. No word has yet hesn received. Will Trek to Civilization Which trail the officers and their guides will pursue from Moose Fac- tory to the Canadian National Rail- way is uncertain and will depond largely upon weather conditions. Snow is falling steadily in this part ot tho country today, but this is not likely to hinder the progress of tho party in their trek for civilivation. A more formidable harrier is the condition of the rivers. The winter, to date, has been comparatively opeu with mild weather predominating, with the result that the rivers are not frozen over in many places. The presence of open water would ne- cessitate many detours through the bush around the portages, adding to the distance to be travelled and con- suming more tima than would other- wise be the case. Because of the weather conditions the party njay leave the Misginabie and head east for the Abitibi which wortld bring them directly into Coch- rane, but otherwise they will reach the railway line at" Matties, or Kapuskaising. There is nc word here today that the party has reached Mattice and they are not looked for before Thurs- day at the'earliest. Non-Partisans DeckreWar SAULT STE MARIE, Out., Jail. 4.
