roei the most notable people In the clt jr.
The program, which hna now been ar
ranged. Include a reception by the Ameri
can minister to the diplomats on Tuesday,
reception to several Danish university
delegates, who wish to pay their rrspecia
to the explorer, and an address by Dr.
Cook before the geographical society.
Denmark Relieve In Cook.
In the matter of the authenticity of Dr.
Cook'a exploit, which seems to have
raised questions In America, there Is this
to be said, that In Denmarck the men of
his own profession, exploration, surround
him and support him without question.
Instead of avoiding them, as a charlatan
would, he spends every possible moment
with them, discussing conditions, Ice fields
and drifts, dugs and supplies, and they
believe In lilm. Whatever the rest of the
World may think, Denmark, which prides
Itself on Arctic explorations, has put the
seal of Its belief and endorsement on Dr.
Cook as strongly as it is possible to do.
The king, acting on carefully considered
advice from experts, givea him such honors
as never before have been given to a pri
vate person. All the Danish papers, after
the first day's skepticism, accept him
wholly. There was strong doubt of his
claims before tv arrived, but one of the
strongest factors now Is Dr. Cook's per
sonality and the absolute freedom and
cundor with which he answer all ques
tions. To obviate the possible loss by shipwreck
of his papers, Dr. Cook shipped sections
of them from Greenland by different ves
Ii, and la arranging to have them sent
f cm Denmark In a similar way. Dr. Cook
lclnlmed any title to unusual bravery.
U fays that the auecess of his expedition
was due to the fact that he had strong
rr.rn and dogs for the final dash, on which
veral others had started with weakened
parties, and that ha did not follow the
Will Leetare at Brussels.
BRUSSELS, Sept. It has been defi
nitely decided, according to the announce
ment here, that Dr. Frederick A. Cook will
deliver a lecture at Brussels on September
30. Elaborate preparations will be made
to greet the explorer. He will be recolred
by Prince Albert of Belgium, and perhaps
Prof. Lecolnte, director of the Brussels
observatory, continuing his defense of Dr.
Cook, insists that the explorer can easily
prove his facta to the satisfaction of scien
tists. "There has been some astonishment," he
said today, "that Dr. Cook found hlmseU
on April tl, 1908, In latitude 89 degrees 59
minutes 46 seconds. Now the figures forty
six constitute an approximation which an
astronomer himself would make with diffi
culty. It la a reasonable result of Correc
tions made to observations taken In round
figures. Therefore, after April 21, when he
had practically arrived at the pole, lie
made complementary march of fourteen
geographical seconds, merely, I suppose, to
reply to a possible malevolent critic who
might try to say that Dr. Cook had not
reached the pole If he did not go beyond
89 degrees 69 minutes M seconds. We might
say Dr. Cook has gone entirely around the
Prof. Lecolnte recalled how Dr. Cook's
medical skill waa of the greatest service In
the Belgian Antarctic expedition when some
of the member of the party suffered from
heart trouble and showed the first symp
toms of scurvy.

that time, "mid PrcfrfeolMe. '

CHICAGO, Sept. 6. The latest reports
on Dr. Cook'a explorations have failed to
convince Pro , Thomas O.' Chamberlln,
head of the department of geology of the
University of Chicago, that the Arctic
traveler reached the North pole.
"Are the American., people an Intelligent
nation or can they be deceived?" asks
Prof. Chamberlln. v
"Will they accept Dr. Cook'a statement
that he found the pole unhesitatingly or
will they demand proofT"
"It Is not up to the skeptics to disprove
Dr. Cook' story. Rather It Is for him to
make good. There la nothing so far to
prove that Cook ever reached the pole.
We have nothing but hi own word for It.
We should have further proof, for. If he
actually reached the pole he would have
made a statement that would have set
all doubt at rest. This Is nothing new.
We all knew It wa coming. I heard long
ago that i when Cook returned he would
make this claim. If his story la true he
Will have, abundant proof of It."
Asked what proof would satisfy him, the
professor declined to (tats, intimating that
a contest may come.
"If thl prove to be a 'fake,' " he said.
"I'm not. going to help htm out by show
ing him how. It may come to a test and
he should not be furnished with material
for a defense. The testimony of the Es
kimos, while undoubtedly of some value,
should not be at all conclusive."

LINCOLN, Sept. 6. (Special.) On one
occasion Senator Burkett met Dr. Fred
Cook at a banquet In Washington And the
senator felt very much relieved when the
news was received that the explorer had
discovered the North pole, for when Sena
tor Uurkett left Dr. Cook the doctor was
In a very bad way.
"Dr. Cook was one of the speakers at a
banquet given by the Geographical society
In Washington," said Senator Uurkett. "He
had started In on hi talk, telling of the
perils of one of his trips In search of the
pole. The speaker said:
"'We climbed the mountain of snow and
then we cut out of the Ice a space suffi
ciently large to pitch a tent. With the Ice
for a floor we crawled Into the tent to
spend the night.'
"At that Juncture," said the senator,
'"the president entered the banquet hall,
the audience rose and began to cheer and
Dr Cook never finished that speech. So
far as I knew he waa still in that tent on
the mountain of Ice until the new was
received that he had reached the pole. It
is very evident he got out of the tent some
way, but he didn't that night."

QUIET WEEK IN WALL STREET
Market Dormant Since Harriman'i
Illneis Ceases to Be Factor.
MANY SHORT SALES UNCOVERED
Paalekf Buying; for These Accounts
11ns Krfeet on Values Rise
In tnlted states Steel
to Record Level.
NEW YORK. Sept. B When business
began In the stock market last week evi
dence had been accumulating over Sun
day which served to dlfolpate the anxieties
which had been keeping the market unset
tled and excited. More exact Information
of K. H. Harrlman's state of health
quieted the hysterical alarm on that sub
ject which had been felt ever since the
seclusion Into which the financier had re
tired on his excursion from abroad and
the entl I reticence observed by all having
knowledge of his real condition. A per
sonal statement from Mr. Harrlman him
self late on Monday confirmed the more
rational Impression of hi health and the
subject thereafter dropped almost Into ob
scurity and did not figure more than
casually In stock market consideration.
This retirement of the subject from
prominent consideration by no mean ended
Its Influence as a factor on prices, as
there was a residue of uncovered short
sale of stocks based on the expected III
effect of the declining strength of the
president of the Union Pacific and the
Interruption to be caused to the vast
financial projects which he is supposed
to be pursuing. The short Interest In the
market was a substantial Influence
throughout the week even after the urgent
and almost panicky buying for that ac
count at the opening of the week.
Contracts Closed Vp.
The approach of a holiday of three days
at the end of a week Intensified the dis
position to close up speculative contracts
and increased the demand from the short
Interest. With the clearing away of the
anxieties caused by Mr. Harrlman's illness
the way was opened for resumption of In
fluence by the very favorable factor In
the general situation. Of these primary
Importance was accorded the Iron and steel
trade situation, as was seen by the ag
gressive leadership of United States Steel
in the recovery of prices. This was suf
ficient to place the price of that stock
at a new record level. Trade advices all
pointed to the expanding demand for Iron
and the extraordinary activity In all line
of finished steel products. Various trade
and financial authorities gave extremely
sanguine estimations of the probably un
precedented volume of the production next
The Influence of the steel trade advices
was not supplemented effectually from the
copper trade, owing principally to the sta
tistical position of that metal. Re-sales
of copper metal and a further accumula
tion of stock In European warehouses
suggested the Inference that speculative
buying had been a large factor In such In
crease In demand as had occurred, while
the sustained rate of production argued
a 'difficulty in sustaining the price for the
Crop Cause Anxiety.
The agricultural prospect suggested soma
cause for anxiety. The government re
port of the cotton condition showed x so
heavy a deterioration as to bring It to a
percentage lower than ever at this season.
It needed full allowance for the compen
sating Influence of the enlarged acreage
for the crop and the heavy reserve Implied
by the , showing of last year's- unprece
dented crop to mitigate the bad effect of
this showing. The lack of moisture for
the corn crop - and the conviction that It
was going back had also to be faced.
Some warning notes were heard also from
sources which command estimation of the
wheat crop itself.
Money Market Scrutinised.
The money market Is subject to close
scrutiny, owing to the known factors at
work there to effect the future, but the
aotual effect on rate haa not been suffi
cient yet to become an active Influence in
the speculation. The interior is drawing
funds from New York for seasonable use.
The prospect of government borrowing
at an early date becomes clearly defined.
Several large railroad loans are to be fi
nanced. The foreign exchange outlook Is
unusually perplexing, with the complica
tion of enormous Indebtedness to be met
on account of bankers, borrowing and the
problem of the effect of the new tariff
law on merchandise import and of a short
cotton crop on export.
