BRITISH VIEW OF DISCOVERY
London Faperi Inclined to Credit
Dr. Cook'i Story.
SHACKLETOH DOES NOT AGREE
Explorer Kmju Reported Finding; of
North Pole Not Improbable la
Lla-ht of Hie Ex
perience. IONDON, Sept. I. Dr. Cook's narrative
of his thrilling Journey to the north pole,
while It has not removed the doubts raised
to his having really accomplished the feat
he claims, haa at least set at rest the
Improbable suggestions advanced In some
quarters yesterday that he had attained
not the north pule, but the magnetic pole.
Captain Renold Amundsen, In an Inter
view at Shristlanla on this point says:
"Such a supposition Is nonsense. The
magnetic pole la situated on the Ameri
can side and it is quite impossible that Dr.
Cook could have driven so far from his
planned route. I feel certain that Dr.
Cook has expressed nothing definitely
about the result. I know Mm to be abso
lutely discreet and taciturn. Other people
have misunderstood him and It will be
necessary to await his arrival at Copen
hagen for the real facts."
The London newspapers are not w-holly
convinced by the narrative and persist that
It will be necessary to await more detail
and reports. They are unable to conceive
how a task which has beaten the ablest
polar explorers provided with everything
that money could purchase, would have
been achieved In such a seemingly off
hand and unpremeditated manner, and with
such ease and quickness.
At the same time they pay tribute of
admiration to Dr. Cook.
The Dally Telegraph sayst
Plea for Fairness.
"It Is for the moment beside the question
to discuss the accuracy or probability of
Dr. Cook's statement. It Is neither Just nor
generous to question In any way the genu
ineness of such a claim before full details
of the expedition are made public by the
traveler himself. Indeed we have much
sympathy because of the difficulties by
which Dr. Cook: or any other solitary ex
plorer l hampered .In attempting to con
vince a skeptical world . of geographical
experts of the reliability of his assertions
and reports. We , trust when the proper
time cornea for a tul! and Impartial exam
ination of the record of the expedition Dr.
Cook-will tneet-n-lth the. fairness and con
sideration his particular case especially
The Morning Poet saya:
. "If Dr. Cook has found"a new track to
the pole In so short a time as thirty-five
days, others can follow In his footstep and
verify his story for themselves. When the
matter has been settled beyond all doubt,
the civilized world will acclaim Cook a
one of the greatest explorers of all time."
Dr. Hill la Skeptical.
Dr. Hugh R. Hill, former librarian of the
Royal Geographical society, is skeptical,
but says that treat weight must be at
tached to the nlon of polar experts In
"I should particularly like to know Gen
eral Oreely's opinion," he said. "My own
feeling Is that our present Information Is
Insufficient to base any opinion upon."
Sir Martin Conway, a noted explorer,
thinks that Dr. Cook'a claim could ii ac
cepted If his story on examination was
found to hang together.
Sir Oeorge S. Naros, who commanded the
ChaUenger in 1873 and was with an Aiotlo
expedition tn 1875, aays; ,
r"I would ask Dr.. Coot tp jvhat distance
from the pole did the polar land extend'
and whether he communicated with Peary'g
Prof. Milne, the noted seismologist,
thinks that If Dr. Cook has a few pfoparly
taken photographs of the sky at the pole
on April 21,- 1908, they may assist In de
termining the position he reaohed. -
Lieutenant ghackleton Convinced.
After reading a brief summary of Dr.
Frederick A. Cook's account of his dash
to the North Pole, Lieutenant Ernest H.
Shackleton, who recently led fta expedition
to the South Pole regions, laid that no
body had any right to be skeptical. Thert
was nothing in the explorer's statement
but ' what was perfectly possible.
"Consequently," the lieutenant continued,
"I do not think the' time It took hint to
return Is against his statement. The ques
tion Is, what distance was he actually from
tr,e pole when he started with the Eskimos.
He must have done twelve miles a day to
cover the distance given in thirty-five days.
"No other expedition has been able to do
anything near- this. In the north one or
(wo miles a day is considered good
progress, but Cook - must have traveled
Over absolutely smooth Ice, which Is a
condition that Is unique." ,
Discovery Not Impossible.
' Dr. Cook's personal announcement that
he reached the north pole haa done much
to dispel the jincertalnly created here by
the first - dispatches, but the Information
la still too vague to convince the hardened
skeptics. The personality of the American
explorer la held In such esteem In British
scientific circles that those best qualified
to Judge are the readiest to explain away
the seemingly obscure points in the meagai
story .of the exploit thus far available.
The general sentiment Is summed up In
the Evening Standard, which, after
lengthy review of the pros and cons, saya
"There Is nothing improbable In the ex
plorer's statement. It will be a source of
much satisfaction if the north pole has at
last been reached. At the same time. It Is
permissible to feel profound sympathy for
Commander . Peary, the. Odysseus of arctic
exploration, the man of many" trials and
struggles,, who was sq little satisfied with
having reached . a point nearer the pole
than any other man that he spoke of his
achievement as 'an empty bauble compared
to the splendid Jewel ' I have been s.riv
lng for.' That splendid Jewel., haa fallen
to the possession of a rival."
Major Leonard Darwin, president of the
Royal -Geographical society, said:
"There is no reason why the north pole
should not have been reached ai.1 It la a

not in a position to express a critical

Explains Rapidity Of Dash.
Captain Robert F. Scott, commander of
the British Antarctic expedition of 1904,
explaining th,e extraordinary rapidity of
Dr. Cook's dash, said:
"It may be that the new area discovered
by Dr. Cook Is a aheltered sea, over which
he traveled. The heavy pressures of the
polar sea may ' have left this sea com
paratively smooth, enabling him to make
his rapid progress.
"The principal geographical Interest In
Dr. Cook's Journey would appear to He In
the details of this hitherto unknown land,
and the absence of loe pressure In the polar
Dnke of the Abrassl Interested.
HOME, Sept. 1 The duke of the Abruzat,
who, since his own Arctla expedition tn
1900, has been keenly interested In polar
exploration, and before he left for the
Himalaya mountains, he expressed the
opinion that Dr. Frederick A. Cook was
"perhaps" the man destined to accomplish
this great feat, 'which may be the greatest
achievement of the twentieth century,"
He based his "opinion on what he had
heard of Dr. Cook's former Journeys and
his preparations for this one.
In a letter received recently at Turin
from the duke the royal explorer asked If
anything had been heard from Dr. Cook.
He said he did' not believe the American
was dead, and expressed the belief that
he would surpass all his predecessors on
thi road to the pole.
MANY HARDSHIPS FOR PARTY
Only Two Eskimo Aeeompanr Dr.
Cook to Bad at Trip.
COPENHAGEN, Sept. J From what has
been learned here of Dr. Cook'a expedition
it Is known that he started from his base
of supplies about 700 miles from the pole
after elaborate preparations - occupying
most of the - polar winter. Aid was re
ceived from a tribe of 259 esklmo and the
start was made along ' the northward of
Grtnnell land. " "' '
The main expedition started ln-February,
1908, after "several scouting parties had cov-
evered' th0feglim in the Vicinity of the
camp. " TfteVrty, It is said, found plenty
of big gatns) "and located a vast region of
unknown-land.' Dr1, 'Cook's party was 're
duced before the pole-was reached to two
Esklmbs and himself. The party suffered
many privations and resorted to killing the
dogs for food. The Sun shone brightly
during the day and the party suffered from
sunburns and frost bites the same day.
Around the pole the party traveled over
a sea of slowly moving ice with no signs
of animal life around It.
The l&ttltude of sero was reached April
21, 1908. Here the small party was able to
do what no- man had ever done before.
Here ordinary geographical conditions
were completely changed for the three ex
plorers. There was but one direction,
south. A step backward would put Dr.
Cook Into midnight, a step forward Into
noon. At one side of him It would be I
o'olock In the morning, at the other
o'clock In the afternoon.
The party began the homewat-J march
after a short atay at the pole during which
Dr. Cook planted the American flag at the
uppermost point of the earth.

M. O. Brltton, alias Bloom, alias Con
verse,' afiaa Llpke, will be arraigned be
fore United States Commissioner Ander
son this morning to show why he should
not be sent to Kansas to answer a com
plaint for using the United States malls
for purposes to defraud. Brltton had but
reoently completed a sentence of several
months on a plea of guilty In the Douglas
county jail for a like offense in Nebraska,
under the name of Bloom. Hla plan was
to secure a consignment of valuable goods,
preferably Jewelry, by writing for them,
alleging that he was connected with a
wholesaling house by the name of Bloom,
on the Paolflc coast, and alleging further
that he was about to open out a store.
Hla story looked good, and hla recom
mendations seemed all right, and he did
a thriving business, except to pay for the
goods. One or two Omaha firms were
stung ' by him, and It was through them
that Bloom was finally overhauled by jthe
postofflce inspectors at Duluth, and
brought bark t6 Omaha to answer.
Immediately following the completion of
his Douglas county Jail sentence, the Kan
sas federal authorities knowing that his
time was about out, nailed him. He gave
bond, and his hearing haa been set for
Friday morning. Brltton Insists that he
is innocent of the Kansas charge in that
he did not secure the goods sent to him
as they were to come C. O. D. and he
