the two most powerful ships In the world.
Its screw standardisation tests over the
Rockland measured mile course today de
veloped a maximum speed of 22.25 knots,
an average of 21. S3. Both marks are In
excess of the best performances of either
Its sister ship, the Delaware, or the Bel

In attaining thla surprising speed the
turbine engines of the North Dakota were
forced to the davetopment of more horse-
' power than has been reached by any bat
tleship afloat. A maximum of 35,150
horae-power was recorded, while 33,875
horse-power waa the mean amount. The
maximum number of revolutions of Its
nickel composition propellors was 288 a
minute. It was found that 2B3 revolu
tions In this time were sufficient to
maintain the contract speod of twenty

There Is but one euch battleship afloat
ot the present time whose attainments
may exceed those of the North Dakota,
Thla la the Neptuna. Juat launched for the
British navy. Tha Neptune, however, will
have to attain to figures much In excess

State Department Will Take No
Action, Urcanse It Might lie Con
strued Official Endorsement
of Peary'e Claims.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 4. Refusing to be
drawn Into the Cook-Peary North pole
controversy, the State department today
declined a request that it cable American
Minister Egan to Copenhagen, to request
of the University of Copenhagen permls
slon to examine the records of Dr. Fred
erick A. Cook when they are submitted
to that Institution.
The request was made by a delegation
from the National Geographic society,
which will appoint a committee to visit
the foremont . Danish scientific Institution
to which Dr. Cook Is to submit his rec
ords. The desire to have the request for
permission to Inspect . the records go
through the official channels was made
at a conference between Assistant Secre
tary of State Huntington Wilson and
Messrs. Gannett, the government's chief
geographer; Edson, former president of
the' Board of Trade of Washington; Gros
venor, editor of the official organ of the
society; Gore and Colvllle, all prominent
members of the National Geographic so
ciety. Wkr Request Was Made.
The request waa made on the ground
that the examination would be by scien
tists of attainments particularly valuable
to the adjustment of the polar problem.
Every effort was made to surround the
delegation's visit with a veil of mystery,
one of the members even denying his
Identity when approached by a newspaper
The department took the request under
advisement and later decided It could not
accede to It. It was felt that such action
would constitute official recognition of
Commander Peary as against Dr. Cook;
that any unusual action on Its part might
be Interpreted as an Indorsement of the
claim of one or the other of the two ex
plorers as to priority of discovery of the
pole. The department has ntlfled Secretary
Grosvenor of the society of Its attitude.
The - members of the committee which
will go to Copenhagen for the Geographic
society will be provided with the usual
letters of Introduction from the Blate de
partment to American diplomatic officers
abroad, asking that the committee be given
all courtesies or assistance possible con
sistent with the official duties of the dip
lomatic representatives. Letters of this
character are frequently Issued to citizens
of the United States traveling abroad.
Will Ask Cook for Data.
Determined effort will be made by the
committee to secure the Cook data. Dr.
Cook will be afforded every opportunity to
place his records or any Information bear
ing upon the trip before the committee,
which son after Its appointment will com
municate with him directly. This com
mittee will advise Dr. Cook of the recent
action of the society's board of managers
in awarding a gold medal to Peary and a
medal to Captain Bartlett, who navigated
Peary's ship to the far north and back,
and of Its virtually "marking time" aa to
other polar claims pending Investigation
and research. It will advise him of the
committee's desire to have ny data he
may be willing to present.

A few days ago the council started to

to Minna-Lusa, the home of Mr. Hunt,
next to the pumping station, but thla
walk would have been Inconvenient to
thousands of people who visit the station.
Hunt maintained and he opposed It. He
wanted the walk laid diagonally from the
public street to the pumping station. One
day when Hunt waa In Omaha the city

"I want to congratulate you on the nom

that, of court-e, he hoped that Mf. Bryan

somewhat similar to that of Hadley In
that he was the only living democratic
