NEW YORK. Nov. JO. Dr. Frederick A.
Cook, th Brooklyn explorer. In an article
which will be. published In Hampton's Mag
azine,, say that he does not know whether
he reached the North pole or not. Dr.
Cook, who hea ben In hiding for more
than a year, hat Informed the editor of
the magazine publishing his story that he
will return to the United States with his
wife and children December 22 in order to
spend Christmas here.
Pr. Cook, In his story, deals with the
psychology of his adventure and says:
"Pld I get to the North pole Perhaps I
made a mistake In thinking that I did.
Perhaps, I did not make a mistake. After
mature thought I confasa that I do not
know absolutely whether -I reached ths
pole or not. Thla may come as an amazing
statement, but I am willing to startle the
world. If, by so doing, I can get an oppor
tunity to present my case.
"By my case, I mean not my baae as a
geographical discoverer, but my cane aa a
man. Muoh aa the attainment of the
North pole once meant to me, the sym
pathy and confidence of my fellow men
mean mora. .
Attempts to Justify Himself.
"Fully, freely end frankly I shall tell
you everything. Tell you everything and
leave the decision with you. If, after read
ing my atory you say, "Cook la alneere and
honest; bait erased by months of Isolation
and hunger, ha believed he reached the
pole; he le not fakir,' then I shall be sat
isfied." Pr. Cook tells the story of his life and
pictures what ha calls the overpowering
.mbttlon for exploration that beset him
until It finally culminated In hta effort to
reaoh the pole. Dr. Cook declares that at
the time he convinced himself h had dis
covered the pole ha was half mad. He spent
two years in his quest and during that
time endured hunger and privation that.
be aaya, would unbalano any mind.
The explorer states that It weuld be lm
yoalblerjtoT'.ny ilnaflr to demonstrate be
i yond question that be had been to .the.
North pole. He oharactarlaea the region aa
a region of Insanity, where one cannot
believe the evldenoea gathered by one's own
Orereoms with Bewilderment.
He aaya he had alwaya looked on the
discovery of th pole aa an achievement
for his own personal satisfaction, for the
satisfaction of a craving and desire that
waa greater than any other factor In his
Ufa. Whan he found how tremendous a
sensation his statement that he had at
tained the pole created, he was overcome
with bewilderment. Pr. Cook then tells
the atory of the daya In Copenhagen and
later in New York, and of the crisis In
his life that caused his flight from New
York and his voluntary exile from the
United Btatea. The explorer says that not
withstanding the fact that he was fol
lowed by the. shrewdest newspaper men
In the world day after day, and that sums
ranging upwarda of several thousands of
dollars ware offered! for a clue to his
whereabouts, he has never worn a disguise
and has never taken any unusual precau
tion to conceal hla identity. Tart of the
time, he aaya, his wife has been with him
and part of the time hla children.
Dr. Cook and hla wife are now In Europe
and the children are in a convent in
Haa Been la Lesios,
Most of the time during his exile Dr.
Cook has been In London. He aaya he
haa gone about among Americana there
with the utmost freedom and at times haa
registered under his own name, and that
only a few have guessed his identity. Those
who did guess It, Dr. Cook saya, were
turned away with ease by the remark:
"Why, yea, I have been told that before."
With the opportunities for thought that
his exile has given him Dr. Cook aaya he
sever even bad time to aleep more than
three or four houra between his arrival
at Copenhagen and his disappearance in
New York he haa found growing stronger
and stronger the desire to return to his
own country to be understood by bis own
people. ' He realizes better than anyone
else the esteem in whiuh he was held.
"X have been called the greatest lisr in
the world, the most monumental Impostor
in history," says Pr. Cook. "I believe that
In every undesirable way I stand unique,
the object of such suspicion and vituper
ation as have assailed few men."
With thla realisation Dr. Cook wrote his
story and says thai to him the honor of
discovering Uie north pole no longer means
anything. The explorer haa been working
on hla story since last August and saya,
according to the editor of Hamplou
magazine, that "hla sole desire Is to make

The revolt began 'with the landing of the

arming themselves, Joined the seamen.

From the convent the rebels marched to

Macao was settled by Portuguese mer

century and long was a flourishing port.
After the cession of Hong Kong to the
British the trade of Macao declined rapidly.
The city was subsequently ceded to Portu

extended their rule over the whole Island
of Macao. China objected to thla extension
of territory and Insisted that the only con
cession ever made Portugal was limited to
the city of Macoa snd haa frequently clashed
with the Lisbon government over their re

adjust the matter.
The city Is now divided into two wards,
one inhabited by Chinese and the other
mostly by Portuguese, each having its own
administration. When the Portuguese mon

Clifford Thorne of Washington, la., state
railroad ccmmlssloner-elect, counsel for the
Com Belt Meat Producers' association and
the Farmers and Grain Dealers' association,
contended that In four states alone, covered
tw an exhaustive Investigation he had
made, the railroads had been overcapital
ized by 1100,000.000. This was based on a
statistical summary of the actual physical
valuation of 133 properties having a com
bined capitalization of more than $1,000,-
Mr. Thorne contended the railways' net
earnings have been Increasing faster than
their expenses, and that the credit of the
roads was good. He urged that the only
proof offered by the railroads to support
their argument of credit impairment was
that they could not market 4 per cent bonds
at par, an ability which he recognized as
by no means indicative of bad credit.
He said railroad securities are more de
sirable today than five, ten, fifteen or
twenty years ago, and command higher
market prloee than any other public utility
or industrial . companies.

LONDON, Nov. 29. Politician of all

elections is spread over weeks or months.
Nearly all the heavy guna were in action
Arthur J. Balfour, leader of the opposi

Albert hail, where he warmly supported
the referendum, described the government
as puppets dancing to the tune of John
Redmond and his American paymasters.
The prime minister, Mr. Asqulth, spoke
at Reading; Chancellor Lloyd-George at
Cardiff; John E. Redmond, leader of the
nationalists, at Dublin; Winston Spencer
Churchill, home secretary, at Colchester;
Augustine Birrell, chief secretary for Ire

the local government board, at Battersea,
and Austen Chamberlain at Ashton.
The issues are narrowing dally. The con-
aervatlvee make much of the menace of
home rule. They proclaim that the plan of
the liberals for the reform of the House
of Lords means a single chamber govern

of the referendum.
There is great fervor among the liberals,
a feature being the sudcten reforming zeal
on the part of the lorda, who claim that
Lansdowne's referendum scheme is a snaro

measures would always sail smoothly
