Dr. Cook Btood on the bridge of the Hans
Egode, wearing a shabby brown suit that
had beecn loaned to him by a Seaman. On
his head was a disreputable old cap, and
his feet were clad In leather moccasins.
His blonde hair was long sml shaggy and
his mustache rough and straggling. His
complexion was sallow, but his face was
He was a strange figure for the center of
such a brilliant scene as greeted his re
turn to civilization.
A bright sun lit up the blue waters of
Copenhagen harbor. Ships and yachts on
every side were gay with flags, and the
shore and piers wWe crowded with people.
Two big American flngs flanked tha land
ing stage where Crown Prince Chris
tian and other notable personages
waited for ona hour the appear
ance of the Hans Egede. Hundreds
of small boats, containing , sightseers,
swarmed over the waters of the harbor.
Many of these boats were filled e.tli
American tourists, waving the stars and
Greeted by Crown Prince.
"When Uio Hans Kgedo was a mile away,
slowly coming In, with an enthusiastic fol
lowing of small craft In Its wake, Crown
Prince Christian and the members of his
staff embarked on a launch which took
them to the side of the steamer bearing the
explorer. The moment the anchor was
dropped the crown prince sprang up the
gangway. Dr. Cook at the same time ap
peared at the head of the ladder. The peo
ple In the surrounding boats, who had ex
pected from the newspaper pictures to see
a bearded man, recognized the explorer for
the first time and aent up a loud cheer.
Prince Christian, who Is a tail and hand
some young man, was dressed in a silk hat
and frock coat. He grasped the hands of
the shabby explorer and congratulated
htm on his achievement, and welcomed him
warmly in the name of the Danish nation
and the geographical society, of which the
prince Is president.
Prince Yaldemar, brother of Klpg Fred
eilck, in an admiral's uniform, accompanied
by a party of naval officials, city officials,
delegates from societies and the minister
of commerce, followed the crown prince up
the side of the steamer and the explorer
was almost smothered in the friendly group
of uniforms and officials in black coats
and silk hats.

Pr. Cook FRhl something about his bsg
eage. "My people wi 1Mik after your bag

Cook to the royal launch. When the launch
approached the pier with Prince Christian
and Pr. Cook by his side, a tremendous
roar of cheers burst out from the people on

craft, Including yachts, moiorboats. land

about the ph r.
Pr. Cook stepped ashore and In an Instant
the police were powerless to make a way
for the party. Pr. Cook and. those about
him were engulfr-d and swept along by a
clamorous crowd. Maurice F. Kgan, the
Amirlcan minister, and the Panlsh offi

Mr. Kgan waved his hand to warn Pr.

After more cheering Commodore Ilov
gaard took Dr. Cook In a carriage and drove
with hlrh through the crowded streets to
the Phoenix hotel, ' where he will be the
guest of the (leugraplilcal society. The
hallways of tho hotel were decorated with
American flags' and masses of flowers.
Johan Hansen, the minister of commerce,
and a committee of the Geographical so
oiety gave a reception to Pr. Cook at the
hotel. The minister made a speech of
welcome, In which he said:
Ilanquet at Town Hall.
"Uefore retiring to your much needed
rest, Pr. Cook, 1 hope you will give Us an
opportunity of bidding you welcome to
Denmark. I thank you on behalf of my
countrymen for the noble deeds which you
so successfully have performed."
The minister then invited Dr, Cook on'
behalf of the government, the municipality
and the Oeographlchal society, "as our
honored guest," to a banquet today at the
Dr. Cook thanked the minister briefly
"for the very kind reception you already
have granted In Denmark and with which
I feel most delighted. "
Minister Hansen, over a bottlo of cham
pagne, then led in "three cheers and a long
life for Dr. Cook."
The members of the reception committee
withdrew and were succeded by a numer
ous delegation of tailors, bootmakers and
barbers. The explorer placed himself In
their hands and several tradesmen were at
work on him at the same time.
At the end of an hour Dr. Cook emerged
with his hair neatly trimmed; his mous

and boots. He then went to the American
legation and had luncheon with Minister

DETAILED ACCOUNT OF THIP
Explorer Talks at length to Large
llol- of Correspondents.
COPENHAGEN, Sept. 4.-The most de
tailed account of his polai Journey as yet
given by Dr. Cook was gained from him
by a large body of newspaper correspond
ents whom he met this evening at the Ho
tel Phoenix. Dr. Cook, at the request of
tho correspondents, consented to answer all
questions. First he was asked whether or
not the first account of his discovery of
the pole could be accepted as entirely hii
own work. He replied In the affirmative,
except for the obvious errors In transmis
sion. He then explained the doubt about
tho 30.00U square miles discovered, saying
that he meant that they were able to see
fifteen miles on each side during their
Journey to the pole, and that therefore a
hitherto Unknown territory of 30,000 square
miles was now discovered.
Dr. Cook proceeded to show that he was
fully competent to take all observations,
saying that on previous exploring expedi
tions he did very little observation work,
which usually was divided among the mem
bers of the party. "This time," he Con
tinued, "we bad started out to reach the
pole and everything else was of secondary
consideration. It waa not possible to carry
certain apparatus, and It was Impossible
also to study the deep aea or take sound
ings. Plenty of Modern Instruments.
"We carried all necessary simple instru
ments for astronomical observations and
we were lucky to obtain observations vir
tually every day. The positions noted most
have Been nearly correct. We had three
chronometers, one watch, compass and ped
ometera. All were carefully controlled by
each oilier from time to time. The watch,
however, got out of order.
"We had all the modern Instruments
which other explorers have had, Includ
ing thermometers, barometers and sex
tants of the latest models. It Is pos
sible that our observations were bclier
than those of earlier days, but I do not
assert that. I um perfectly familiar with
making astronomical observations, espe
cially in the polar regions. I think that
all explorers will be satisfied with my
"Why should I sit down and Invent ob
servations?" he exclaimed. "1 aid not dd
this thing fur anything but aport, and be
cause I take a real interest In the prob
lem. It would not do me any good to
Invent these things. The only witnesses
l had were two Hsklmos, certainly, but
In all polar expeditions observations have
been made by one man. I regard the
Kakluio as much more Intelligent in find
ing positions than the white mao In the
Arctic. These veip)u as a rule are not
absolutely ignorant. They know that the
earth is round. They have a name for
the pole, which they call the 'big nail.'
They appreciato the work of explorers
when participating therein.
"I think lUHinussen has obtained some
information regarding my expeditions from
the Kskimos. who have learned It from the
two men. ltaitumssen was there much
later and his information will be published
shortly, possibly tomorrow.
Polar Ice Moving.
"Concerning the Ice around the pole, aa
far aa I could seo, it Was aMghtly more
active there than at one or two derrees
south. It drifted somewhat more to the
south and east. Its general character Is
not very different from that of other places.
W staved around the pole for two days
making many ubscr ntiona. t do not claim
to have put my fin sir on the exact spot:
I dr not claim to have put my foot on it.
but personally I think we have been at the
spot. When the observations have been
figured out aualn It Is possible that there
will be found slight errors and differences,
but I am certain tint a potshot fired from
whre we were would bave passed over tho
"We planted the Stars and Ptrlpes at
what We believed to be the pole, but did
not leave the fU wlh a staff., Instead I
Plated a small silk flag In a cvllnder with
ray card and the record of the .tourney with
the date. The dtift Ice may carry the flan
away, but to m that Is a matter of Indif
ference. I should have been very glad to
have found land there.
"I am quite prepared to plare my ob
servations before any geographic! society
In the world. 1 think there Is no 1oubt
about my obtaining authorltlve recognition

j geographical societies of Sweden, Norway,

Which congratulate me. while" Amundsen.

was minus 3X. I took about 4f0 photograph.
one of which shows the American flag

speed Not I'nnannl.
Questioned regarding hip great speed, Dr.
"The dally distance covered on the
northward trip was slightly less than fif
teen miles, on the southward trip It was
ten miles. This Is not an abnormal dis
tance for Ksklmos on the- Ice. They ofen
travel fifty or slty miles with dogs. One
of the greatest advantages of our trip
was that I did not take a famine route.
We had game for a long time, perhaps
for 100 miles. We fed our dogs well
throughout the winter In Greeland and
ran them 400 miles, giving them fresh
meat every day. Thus we brought them
to the Polar aea fui and well. We had
the host men and best dogs.
"We lived entirely on drlef meat and
beef tallow, reducing the food problem
to a science. The last trace of animals
we saw, was a bear track at S3 degrees.
Afterwards we did not even see life In
the water, except alRne. The drift of the
Ice during the entire Southern trip was
slightly south of cart; the direction of the
wind was generally south of west. We
found several of Sverdrup's old camps.
The reason we utilised silk tents on some
occasions was that we were so exhausted
that we had not strength to build a snow
shed. We had Carefully figured and
planned everything so that there was no
surplus welsht t6 carry. We did not run
short except when we went astray.
"During the expedition we ate all kinds
of meats. I like musk ox best, but we
would eat bear or fox If the other was
not obtainable. Everything tastes good
when one is starving. We brought ten
flngs back with us, the others having been
eaten by their companions. We used the
lasso, traps and bows and arrows to catch
game. It took two months to learn how
to trap a moose. One of the men shot an
Elderj duck with arrows."
Dr. Cook concluded his observations with
a reference to the kind way he had been
treated by the king, who was greatly in
terested In bis adventures. He stated
that he waa going to New York as soon
as possible. He will remain here for a
few days and then, will proceed to Brus
sells, where he Is a member of the Polar
club. Ho assured Ills hearers that he did
not waut to go to the pole again, cither
north or south.

HUNDRED DETECTIVES WORK
Active Search for Men Who Ditched
Royal Blue Flyer.
WORK OF RAILWAY MEN
Satchel Containing 4 4.floo M Cash
nnd Srenrltlea Itrloaatnf to
Injured Man Fonnd by
NEWCASTLE. Pa., Pept. 4 Over a
hundred detectives are here tonight
straightening out a mi' of bewildering
clues that may lead to the discovery of
the person or persons who are responsible
for ditching the Udyal Bind flyer en route
from New York to Chicago at Chewton.
But one definite fact was established.
The train ditchers, after they had" made
the derailing of the flyer a certainty, Made
across the marshy field's Irt the gonernl
direction of Wampum, a lohely foreign
settlement three miles from the railroad
and as many more from h-e. Blood
hounds, used by railroad detectives, fol
lowed a trail from the scene Of the wreck,
but after bringing up abruptly at a
slaughtering pen used by Newcastle butch
ers, at Wampum, the animals lost the
seemingly fresh scent and refused to be
goaded on any further.
Tonight the consensus of opinion was
expressed by one of the Baltimore tt, Ohio
police, when he said: i
"The train wreckers are In the vlolnlty
of Newcastle. They have not attempted
to fly, nor will they. They left the scene
of their dastardly work, and, taking a
round-about way, cams right back to the
place they started from."
On this theory the many officers here
are working. No little rivalry exists on
account of the large reward offered by
the railway company for the apprehension
of the criminals.
It is generally believed that the work
was that of either experienced railway
men or at least persons familiar with
the operation of . the railway and its
train schedules. The finding of a
sledge hammer and a crowbar near the
w reck further supports the theory, . as
the tools were branded with the railway
company's initials .and had been evi
dently taken from a maintenance of way
car stationed here. All of the Injured
at the local hospitals . will recover.
Seventeen persons are being cared for at
the railway company's expense.
Date today $14,000 was deposited at a
local bank by railway secret service
men to the credit of Henry Millard of
Lafarge, Wis., who lies injured at the
'Shenango sanitarium. Millard carried
a grip from New York City containing
this amount in negotiable bond, securi
ties and cash and had placed the satchel
under a seat In the day coach. When the
train was ditched the satchel was
lost for a time, but was recovered by
railway employes. 1
The body of lnglnper O. A. Dill wa
taken to his home In Chicago Junction
