by his own work. Captain Robert K. Peary,
the Arctic explorer, answered a cross fire
of questions at a hearing before the house
committee on naval affairs Tuesday.
He told how he wanted the glory of the
rxlar achievement for himself, declining
to let sn.v member of his expedition, other
tl an th- nepro, Hensoti. go on the last
dash with Mm. how his publishing con
trsets had precluded hlin from testifying
before the committee last spring and how
the members of his expedition had been
prohibited from writing about the trip.
Captain Teary was asked why, as a
naval officer, he made no report to the
Navy department. He said he had made
some report to the coast survey and had
advised the Navy department of that fact.
It was his Impression that the superin
tendent of the survey had made a report
to the navy- Tressed by Mr. Roberts.
Captain Peary said there was a letter of
his on file somewhere asking secrecy for
his written report to the survey as ' to

of your party with you on the final stage

Peary, "I have always made the final

devoted my life, for which I had gone
through sueh hell as I hope no man In
this room will ever experience and I did
not feel that I should divide It with
young man who had not the right to It
that I had."
Captain Peary, replying to repeated ques
tions as to the results of his arctic trip
said he had not yet prepared such a chart
as would enable anyone to follow In his
footsteps to the pole, but he "Imagined"
that he had data by which he could pre
pare such a chart He said the position of
the North pole could be determined Just
the same as the equator, but the trouble
was the comparative low altitude of the
sun, which never gets higher than 22H de
gtees above the horizon. For that reason
ordinary observation could not be relied
on with accuracy.

the fight for progressive legislation will
go on, Representative Norris o Nebraska,
who led the rules fight in the house last
March, Issued a statement today charac
terizing yesterday's proceedings In the
house when Speaker Cannon's decision
was sustained as looking "very much like
a frame-up, brought about by the speaker
and his friends for a vindication."
Mr. Norris said that in yesterday's rule
fight the republican Insurgents, with a few
democrats, showed themselves to -je con
sistent, but were apparently overridden by
a majority combination of republicans and
Mr. Norris said yesterday's sttack on
the precedent set last March and the

against the motion to dischargo committee
rule framed by tho democrats, are typical
Instances of the operation of the house ma
He pointed out that yesterday's fight
was not an insurgent affair. Inasmuch
as It was started by Representative Fuller
who, according to Mr. Norris, voted against
his own position to sustain the speaker
and Representative Gaines of West Vir
ginia, another of the speaker's lieutenants,
who appealed from the decision of the
chair, and on roll call voted against his
own appeal to sustain the speaker.
