Full of menning, if "successful"
were interpreted to indicate that he
had reached the North Pole, the fore
going calle message, exasperating in
its briefness, was received in New
York Wednesday from Dr. Frederick
A. Cook, (he American explorer,
whom (lie latest cable advices credit
with having accomplished what no
man ever did. It was intended for
Mrs. Cock, who was not at home.
Wcdns^doy's message from Dr.
Cool: io Iiis wife was dated at Ler
wick, Shetland islands, tho first avail
able print of transit in the regular ?
steamship course between Greenland
ports and Copenhagen, whither he is
bound. Because of its briefness the
assumption is that the message was
sent primarily to assure his wife of '
his safety and not to apprise the
world of his discovery.

occasionally to be gained.
"For several days after the sight
of known land was lost, the overcast!

tion of our position. On March 30
thc horizon was partly cleared and
now land was discovered. Our ob
servations gave our position as lati
tude 84.47, longitude 80.30. There
was urgent need of rapid advance.
Our main mission did not permit a
detour for the purpose of exploring
thc coast. Here were seen thc last
signs of solid earth; beyond there
was nothing stable to be seen.
"We advanced steadily over the
monotony of moving sea-ice and now
found ourselves beyond the range of
nil life-neither footprints of bears
nor the blow-holes of seals were de
tected. Even the microscopic creat
ures of the deep were no longer under
us. The maddening influence of tho
shifting desert of frost became al
most unendurable in the daily rou
tine. The surface of the pack offer
ed less and less trouble and the
weather improved, but there still re
mained the life-sapping wind which
drove desair to its lowest recess. The
extreme cold compelled action. Thus
:lay after day our weary legs spread

positions were recorded, but adven

"The irght of April 7 was made

OR. COOK ISJNTERVIEWED
Reached Pole at 7 O'clock in tho
Morning-His Success Due to Old
Methods, Esquimos and Dogs.
Skag?n, Denmark, By Cable.-A
newspaper correspondent who went
on hoard the Hans Egedc from tho
pilot steamer off here was able to ob
tain a few words with Dr. Frederick
A. Cook. The explorer ascribed his
success to the fact that he made use
of the old methods, namely, Eskimos
and dogs, and that ho lived like an
Eskimo himself. Tho doctor theu^.
gave a hurried sketch of his expedid
tion in which he said: .
"Going northward I struck first a
westerly coiu'se from Greenland and
then moved northward.
"I arrived at thc North Pole April
21, 1908, as already announced, ac
companied by only two Eskimos.
"We reached the Pole at 7 o'clock
in tho morning.
"I took daily observations for a
whole fortnight before arriving at the

a more weasterly route and' the (irst
ten days I look observations daily
and recorded them. I was unable to
measure the depth of thc seas as I
had not the necessary instruments.
"The lowest temperature was 83
degrees centigrade below zero.
"I have ample proof that I reach

I took, which alford a certain means
of checking the truth of my state
"Although I am proud of my
achievement in planting the American
?Ug on the North Pole, I look with
.nudi greater pride to the fact that I
traveled around mare than thirty
thousand spore miles of hitherto un
known ground, and opened up nu en
tirely fresh field for exploration."
The Hans Egedc was met in the
North sea by the pilot steamer Polar
Bear, aboard which was Captain Am
drup, the well-known polar explorer,
who was sent as a special representa
tive of the Danish government to
welcome Dr. Cook. As the vessels ap

There is much, however, to be de

it. If it is proven that the pole is
on a continent or island, thc United

of some hind contiguous to it.
The boundaries of British America
