DR. COOK'S LEAVE TARING
Charles Wake Tells How Explorei
Disappeared from New York.
CHANGED PIANS AND "SLOPED"
Finally Wrote from F.nrope to Flad
Yh-rrnlnos of Wife Who Had
Orlnlniil Records la
NEW YORK. Dec 27.-Char Wake of
th1 dry, Arctic explorer, member of the
Lxplorers' rlub. nnd therefore one of the
staunrhest x!ippir;eid of Dr. Frederick A.
C'.vik. deserted the Cook standard last night
Although lovnl for several days ater the
adverse decision of the University of Cop
enhagen on OjTik'B record. Wake now svs
that he was deceived by the explorer. He
add that he does not know where Dr.
Conk Is. except that he Is In Europe, al-'
thouph he I awnre of Mrs. Cook's where
about, which he declines to reveal.
"Cook has had ample time to express
himself since the records were examined, "
said Mr. Wake, "but he has not done so.
80 long as I live I shall never forget the
decree of nonchalance with which he waved
his hand towards the beautifully engraved
degree and the handsome gold medal that
hud been Conferred on him by the Copen
hagen university and replied: 'There Is
the best evidence.'
"I do not know who Is raring for hln
children In a New York boarding school,
but I presume relatives are doing It. How
much money he made on his trip and what
settlement of It 1 do not know."
Mr. Wake says he does not wish his
statement to be taken as an attack on Dr.
Cook, but he feels Impelled to let the facts
Kpiak for themselves, lie then recites his
experiences with the explorer, among them
A rrsuitcmentt to Mall.
"It Was finally arranged that Mr. Lons
dale, Dr. Cook's secielury, should sail fur
Copenhagen with a typewritten copy of the
ii surds, on the I'nlU'd States of the Scan-elniavlun-Amerlcan
line, vailing on Novem
Lilr , and that the doctor and his wlf,
cti ryltiK the original, should sail for Ge
iiia, under unsullied names, on the Celtic,
leaving on November 27. Lonsdale and his
companion were then to take the orlg.nal
to Copenhagen and Dr. Cook vas to remain
within easy distance of a call front the uni
versity. It was understood that the doctor
and Lonsdale should come to my office at
3 o'clock on the afternoon of Novembor 24
to arrange some of the details of Lonsdale's
departure. To ullay the anxiety of the doc
tor and his wife, I had arranged with a
cictectlve atrency to have him constantly
shadowed, and the detective was at my
office to pick hlin up.
"Dr. Cook did not appear at the hour ap
pointed, but Longdate eventually connected
villi me on the telephone away from my
olflee, and at it o'clock he met me and told
mo the story of Dr. Cook's disappearance,
lie suUl they cuiuo down front Brouxvllle
ae 2:30 that afternoon. Intending to go to
my otiice. On their arrival they found the
lB.iul array of detectives waiting to shadow
them. 'J. hey huirled through the crowd
and saw a south bound Madison avenue
cur Just getting under way. On seeing the
cur .the doctor suddenly exclaimed: 'Here
is a chance to get away from them and 1
am going to take it. Come along.'
. . Ur. Cook Slips Away.
"They tnen mad their way to the Penn
sylvania depot by a circuitous route and
Dr. Cook to'jk a train tor Philadelphia.
O.f the way to Juiey City he had hlb
ii.oustaohe itaed off and exchanged his
oeiby for a , soft felt hat. His parting
vims to Loiiseiau were: 'Now I shall be
fable to get tome' sleep. Tell Mr. Wake 1
.iu Writs him, ujinrf trie name of Harper,
but tell him 1 trust him to keep this secret,
ui'.ng with the rest.'
"1 was greatly surprised and at first
higlily lncei.fcciL and for the first time 'be
gun to feel soiiie mifcgivliigs. I concluded,
lio.vever, that perhaps his mind might have
been affected and that therefore he snould
Doe be held' too rietuly accountable,
' Lotiauale balled with the copy of the
records on the United stales on Thursday,
November 25, and on the following day
Mrs. Cook, who knew nothing more about
her husband's whereabouts than 1 did,
moved to New York,
"On the next day, the 27th, we received
our first word from Dr. Cook. It came In
Hie form of. a letter, postmarked Toronto,
Or t., to Mrs. Cook.
"la It he told her to meet him In Europe
at once. 'If the hounds are still pursuing
jou' he said, 'put my original records in a
safe) deposit , box and leuve the key witn
Mr. Waks; If they are not following you,
bring the records with you. My lite is of
more importance than the polar matter,
Vttlch cai wait If necessary.'
Mrs. Cook Takes Hecords.
"I did not like the tone of the letter and
said so, but Mrs. Cook begged me not to
be husty and I promised to stand by her.
I returned to her the original records
which' had been given mc for sefa keeping
with thu suggestion that they bo Immedi
ately, sent to Lonsdale. Mrs. Cook then
sailed for Europe. 1 supposed thut she
had previously mailed the records, but I
discovered tliut the had chungtd her mind
and had taken them with her,
"After site had sailed 1 received an In
quiry from Dr. Ctok, who was then In
Europe, for his wile's whereabouts, which
I communicated to him. The nature of
this inquiry led me to believe that he w.ii
anxious to meet her to get his originals
and hurry them to Copenhagen and this
strengthened my waning conddenca and
prompted me to give public expression to
It. I have not heard from him since then,
directly or Indirectly, and I have no idea
where he la now,
"I confidently expected that he would
meet Mrs. Cook when she larded in

emy, Henry Pennington, a mob of 100 citi
zens late last night took Fennlngton from
Jail, where he had been Incarcerated under
heavy guard, and hanged him to a steam
pipe. Pennington, w ho had been drinking, picked
a quarrel with Iiaker and shot him while
the latter was on his way to a Sunday
school Christmas tree with his wife, his
two children and a friend, Watt Meadows.
Seeing that he had killed. Baker, Penning
ton started to run away., , Mrs. Baker called
after Pennington and implored him to help
her take the body home.
The ruse worked and Pennington went
back to the spot where his victim lay
dead. Bent upon .avenging the deed, Mrs.
i aker grabbed Pennington's pistol from his
pocket and shot twice at him. Her aim was
bad. Pennington recovered possession of
the pistol and then shot the woman and
attempted to kill Meadows and the two
Pennington was captured by a posse on the
outskirts of tho town after an exchange of
sho.s with the officers, who badly wounded
him. Last night a band of about 100 citi
zens was quietly organized, the guard was
everpowercd and Pennington was taken to
the engine room of a lumber mill nearby
and hanged to a steam pipe. The body was
riddled with bullets and was then left hang

MANAGUA, Nicaragua, Dec. 27. The new
president of Nicaragua, Joee Madrli, Is
taking hold of affairs with a strong hand.
Zelaya left him the legacy of an empty
treasury, and soon after President Madriz
had publicly announced In effect that the
country was practically on tho verge of
bankruptcy, the arrest of Joaquin Passos,
Zelaya's son-in-law, and Ernesto Martinez,
Zelaya's last finance minister, was ordered.

MEXICO CITY, Dec. 27.-That Zelaya In
tends to go eventually to Belgium was the
belief expressed tonight by Minister Castro,
Nlcaraguan representative In this city. He
said the former president probably would
como direct to Mexico City where he would
doubtless be the guest of President Diaz
for a time after which he would proceed
to Belgium, his wife's native land.
The Mexican gunboat Guerrero, with ex-
Presldent Zelaya on board, arrived off
3allna Cruz at 8:30 tonight, according to a
dispatch to the Associated Press from that
port. The vessel made no attempt to enter
the harbor, but anchored outside.
The Guerrero was not expected to reach
Sallna Cruz before tomorrow night and
must have made a record breaking run,
It Is said here, to cover the distance In
so short a time. Officials of the Mexican
government computed the time that would
probably be consumed In the .trip at sey-enty-two
hours,' although they .admitted
that the gunboat could make the run In
much less time if necessary.
