This is how they reported on it in 1904.

Observations of the Alpine glaciers during a series of years have supplied proof that these great ice streams have long been in process of recession.

The information given on the map indicates that in the past fifty-three years the face of the glacier has retreated about eight miles. Not only is it shorter than it formerly was, but its mass has otherwise been reduced to a very considerable extent. The surface of the glacier now lies from 20 to 30 feet below its former level and the precipitous walls of rock that hem it in bear the record of this change of level. It is found also that the other glaciers in that neighbor; hood are in process of retreat, and the evidence collected by Dr. Engell shows that this process has been going on for a long series of years. This evidence would seem to show that for the past half century the summer heat has been greater than it was for at least a considerable period before that time
