    DR. WILLIAM S. BRUCE, of the Scottish Oceano-graphical Laboratory, is conducting another expedition to Prince Charles Foreland and other parts of Spitsbergen. One of the chief objects of the expedition is to complete the survey of Prince Charles Foreland which he began in association with H.S.H. the Prince of Monaco in 1906 and continued in 1907. He will also connect this survey with the mainland of Spitsbergen across Foul Sound, thus joining up the work of H.S.H. the Prince of Monaco, the late Captain Guissez, Captain Bourée, and Captain Isachsen in the north-west of Spitsbergen.
