The Iron Republic
Story published in a Florida magazine Jacksonville, USA-1902
In my ongoing quest to prove there is inter-terrestrial and other human intelligence right here on Earth, I want to share my thoughts on a book that was a very interesting read to say the least. You’ll need to be somewhat of a free thinker to really appreciate the events that took place during this unbelievable, apparent true story. The images used are not part of the real story but are intended to help deliver a truer sense of the experience.
The story below includes his departure from New York Harbor, journey to Antarctica, breaching of the Antarctic ice walls and accidental arrival in The Iron Republic. The reason the entire story was not summarized was due to the mission at hand; to boldly prove we can go where no man has gone before without leaving the surface of Earth. This is but one article in a series that will provide evidence supporting the theory we are living in a world of lies.It is also important to note, this story took place before the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 and prior to when the Antarctic treaty was enforced.
- The Book: The Iron Republic
- Written by: Richard Jameson Morgan for a Florida Magazine
- Date: 1902
- The Characters: E.W. Barrington, the captain, crew and all people they met in the newly discovered Iron Republic
This is really an unbelievable story about a wealthy young American lawyer who flees the United States of America on a vessel with a small crew. He is duped into running in an election where he is assured winning. Unfortunately winning this election transformed this popular, well-liked community activist into a demon in the eyes of the American public. Even his best friends abandoned him. His long desired political career is over and his name is mud from one end of the country to the other.
Unable to deal with the public hatred, ridicule and name calling he decides liquefy his assets that will provide his escape in a well equipped vessel. His plan was to travel as far as he could away from modern civilization. In New York he finds a ship that is a little weathered but worthy of his journey that will include exploration of Antarctica for at least 3 years. He also obtains enough food/supplies, hires a highly experienced captain and small crew. The reason he chose Antarctica was due to the captain’s vast experience in these waters. A coarse was plotted and June 17, 1895 the ship set sail from New York Harbor.
New York Harbor, 19th Century by GRANVILLE PERKINS (1830-1895)
In the book there is not a lot of detail put into the actual voyage from New York Harbour to the ice walls of Antarctica. The author explains he does not want the journey to be the focal point of the documentary.
Aug 10, 1895 they crossed the Equator where a celebration on the ship took place for the crew. Towards the end of September they pass the Cape of Good Hope where it became evident their habitable world was being left behind. This is where the remarkable journey begins.
The waters are deep and black with a certain ferocity that cannot be put into words. Sailing from New York for 151 days lead to the ice waters of the great South which seemed scary for Barrington but not for the captain who was a wise owl in these waters.
Finally they reach the ice walls of the great South [Antarctica] about a month later. The description of the ice wall towering as far as the eye can see in either direction with sea water so clear it’s hard to imagine is noted in Barrington’s log. Countless whales are spouting all around them while hundreds of sea birds fly about. They continue to sail east by south with a visible wall of ice on their right hand side that was 50-300 feet high.
On December 23, 1895 they reach sight of Mount Erebus. At the time, this was the only known volcano in the Antarctic region. They encountered very jagged ice formations combined with Mount Erebus’s dull brown and grey rock presence. The volcano was in a minor state of eruption at the time which resulted in many waterfalls and natural steps created through the icy mountainside. It appeared like a stairway to heaven and showed signs of accessibility. After enjoying a Christmas dinner together with his crew Barrington announced they were going to climb Erebus in the morning and selected a small team from the crew volunteers.
Climbing the volcano was a lot easier than anticipated, making it up two thirds of the way on the first day. They found a set-in cave where they bunked up for the night, 8,000 feet above sea level. They witnessed the aurora lights which projected a ghostly tint of light on their surroundings while experiencing the bone chilling winds of the Antarctic. The expedition crew bunks for the night in this cave. As a side note, these may have been the first known humans to step foot on Mount Erebus.
Distance from Cape of Good Hope to Mount Erebus
Once at this elevation, Barrington surveyed the visible area by eye and with a telescope. The telescope revealed an opening of water in the distance that looked navigable inwards to the ice wall. They descend down Erebus and board the ship on a set course to the newly discovered channel [opening].
They approach this opening which looks like it could become blocked with ice very easily the way the water moves from the north carrying drift ice and large ice masses. Barrington’s theory is the channel may have been jammed with ice during previous explorations making it virtually impossible to discover. Additionally explorers in this area were very cautious due to the presence of large icebergs in the water. The crew spliced together all their anchor lines together as they enter the channel in an attempt to find the bottom of the channel…to no avail.
They approach the passageway through the ice wall and tightly navigate for about 25 miles. The ice walls were infinitely visible on the right and left side as the ship sails deeper through the passageway. Eventually they reach open black sea again where they see the sun briefly just before it sets, leaving them in the cold Antarctic night skies illuminated by the Aurora Australis [Southern Lights]. The Southern Lights allowed them to see the waters providing the captain with some sense of navigation.
Once in open sea Barrington decided to circumnavigate the newly discovered sea. They sail east where they eventually were able to see Mount Erebus again. Once they cross the ice barriers their compass no longer functions correctly, each day the needle progressively slowed down, eventually the compass needle was spinning backwards. As they sail through the black sea, severe weather consisting of snow and ice punishes the vessel and its crew like never seen before in their entire journey. Even the experienced captain remarks he has never seen stormy weather like this before.

After about four months of sailing the weather begins to get progressively warmer. Two more months pass when they begin to see driftwood in the water which again becomes more plentiful as they sail. Birds on the land become more present day after day. This was a clue that they were sailing close to a coast line sensed Barrington although no coast line could be seen.

On July 20 bright lights can be seen in the distance. As they draw nearer the look-out confirms the bright lights seem to be a city powered by electricity. The captain suggests it’s a city somewhere on the west shores of South America. This was a disappointment to Barrington as he was trying to escape the world. He cannot understand how they ended up here because they were always sailing south on their entire journey. It is night time as they approach the city, closely their eyes verify it is civilization and the captain anchors for the night.
They observe from a distance that it is most certainly a modern city absent of typical noises heard in American cities. They were only a few miles from the city and could not hear any sounds whatsoever, although it was brightly illuminated in the night sky.
In the morning a strange looking small watercraft sped across the water from the city towards the vessel. It was unlike any boat they had seen before resembling the American Whaleback in form. A uniformed pilot appears on deck saluting and speaking perfect English but with a strange accent. His first words are “What Vessel is this?” To which Barrington replies “The Wanderer of New York”. The officer looked absolutely flabbergasted when he learned the ship was from the United States of America.
The captain asks “What land is this?” A reply is given by the officer “It’s The Iron Republic, sir”. The officer went on to explain there was no protocol in place for people that arrive from USA. He was not permitted to answer any questions but went on to instruct them to follow him in. Once they reached the pier an officer greeted them with another look of astonishment when recognizing the ship was from America. This officer also said he did not know what to do when Americans arrive so it was referred to the Office of the director of navigation.
The officer signals Barrington to follow him as he begins walking towards the office building. During the walk Barrington asks the officer what the name of this country is and where is it located? The officer answers with “The Iron Republic, it’s about as far from the frozen ocean as the USA is.” [Remember this bolded line as it reveals an approximate distance]
A strange looking horseless vehicle approaches when the officer explains the vehicle will transport him to the Office of the director of navigation. So far, everything Barrington and the crew have seen and experienced is very strange:
- A city of lights that makes no rumbles or roars associated with the cities they are accustomed to
- Horseless transportation vehicles that were silent
- Located in an area undiscovered or undisclosed by their own governments, scientists and authorities
- A general tone of friendliness with people he had seen
- The obvious shock value of the officers when they learned of their American origin
For Barrington and his crew this mind blowing experience has just begun. The Iron Republic will have so many surprises, lessons and absolute enlightenment for them.

A very interesting statement made by the officer when Barrington asked about the location was his response “The Iron Republic, it’s about as far from the frozen ocean as the USA is.” With the assumption that his words were true we can estimate the distance from the USA to the Iron Republic. We do this doubling the distance from USA to the frozen ocean [ice walls]. From South Carolina to Antarctica; Total distance: 16,709.69 kmbased on an ocean route ending at the most southern point of Antarctica. That means the Iron Republic is roughly 10400 miles south of the frozen ocean [assumption Antarctica].
The purpose of providing this brief account is to suggest there may civilization beyond the poles of our so-called globe Earth. The world as we see it is not the way it really is. This illusion has been in the works for at least 500 years with the purpose of enslaving the fine people of this world. If you think this sounds crazy it is my sincere wish that you wake up and open the eyes that god gave you to see his wonderful creation with. There is NO WAY our world ends at the poles! Stay tuned for the next exhibit that will help us determine the truth about the world we really live in, it’s the goal of my writings on this topic.
