Reach the f
Bar Harbor, Special --From 'Rob-,
. crt ?. Peary was obtained this infor
mation, a forecast of the mdictment; ,
he and 'Gen. Thomas HnbbaTd, presi-'
dent of- the Peary Artic ? Club, will
draw against the contentions of Dr
1 Frederick A. Cook'that he has reach
_ ed the North Pole.
.There are 14 counts in the indict
ment and they may be summarized
First-That Mr. Peary and Matt
Henson,? either individually or to
gether,; talked with every member of
- the.Smith Sound tribe of Eskianos
and obtained, testimony that eorro
rates. that of E-treck-a-sh?o and
. A-pel-lah, the boys who accompanied
Dr. Cook, that Dr. Cook had nol been
out of, sight of land.
Second-That in violation ?i the
recognitized custom of Artic explora
'tion Dr. Cook has* not brought back
records., left, in cairns at7 points he
-asserts he^'had reached,. notably the
; ^one left at Cape Thomas Hubbard in
1906 by Mr. Peary.
. Third-That Dr. Cook's story that
ho traveled from Annotok to the Pole
and then back to Jones' Sound,, a
distance of . more than 251-2 degrees,
or about 1,700 miles, in one sledging
season is impossible. He points out
that this-is more than twice the best
. previous record of ll'degrees, and
Mr. Peary's best record this year of
14 degrees. .
Fo?rthA-That his general equip-,
ment, was such that it would be a
.physical impossibility to have accom
. plished.the remarkable feat.
^Fifth-That Dr. Cook maintains he
carried'a glass mercurial horizon on
}iis trip of 1,700 miles, whereas Mr.
Peary used a cast iron horizon, so
that it would not only be saved from
WHITNEY BELIEVES THAT I
St. Johns, N. F.,. Special.-Harry
"Whitney, of New Haven believes that
/ Dr. Frederick A. Cook found the
Pole and- that-Commander Peary did
the same. ' In expressing this belief
?L. Mr. Whitney said that he knows no
reason for doubting Cook more than
./'Dr; Cook's story,'' he' added,,
"seems-to me truthful and probable.
- Nothing else would explain his
twelve months' 'absence.".
Speaking of Dr. Cook's detailed ac
count of his trip to the Pole,1 l?x.
Whitney saidthat the explorer showr
ed him how the western drift of ..'the
ice . had landed, him ia . a region ::ar
remote from where he expected . to;
go, and he was unable to get ba ak.
Be could not speak with authority as
to whether Dr. Cook and . his two
Eskimos could carry on their three
sledges enough food for their journey
to the Pqle, as he himself is a novi ce
v. in Artic'traveling. He declared he
knew , nothing of the controversy be
yond the vaguest details. The first
he'learned ?of it was at Indian Har
bor, when he received messages from
; several'American papers asking for
a statement. *
Mr. Whitney denied that Com
.'." mander Peary had removed Dr.
:Cook's stores from Annotok to Etah.
v What Peary really did was to trans

house at. Annotok. Boatswain Mur
phy's only reason for refusing to
help Captain Bertnier's Canadian ex
pedition to get' dogs anil sledges at
' Etah was that they were short of
dogs themselves. Mr. Whitney had
trouble ,(jn getting enough dogs for
his teams all through thc winter and
? Murphy was looking out for Pear?,
. so that he would have sufficient dogs
for the commander's exploring trips
around the country when, he returned
from the ^north. .
The day. "the Roosevelt was leaving
Etah for .horne Whitney informed
Peary, that Cook had entrusted to him

ment. He declares that ^ie under
stands Commander Peary and his men
went among the Eskimos and tried
to have them declare Cook did not
exceed Peary's "farthest north," but
he insists that he understands the
Eskimos, did not do so. He also
denies that he quarreled with Peary
on the Roosevelt.
"Dr. Cook did leave me three cases
of scientific instruments," declared
the New Haven sportsman. "They
THE ROOSEVELT IN THE BK

It was barely daylight when the look
outs discovered the vessel off Sandy

of the Hook, the Roosevelt gave three.
WILBUR WRIGHT ENCIRCLE;
; 1 New York, Special.-Wilbur Wright
circled the great statue of liberty at
the entrance of New York harbor in
his aeroplane Wednesday, while in
the upper part of the city two huge
dirigible balloons- failed ingloriously
in their task. This,, the first day of
flight of the Hudson-Fulton celebra

when the mercury froze. This is
necessary sometimes, .Mr. Peary con

35. ' -I5r?" Cook reports finding it aa
cold as minus 83 degrees.
Sixth-That Professor. Marvin
brought back- from 86 degrees 38
minutes duplicate records of Mr.
Peary's march and of his own to.
prove absolutely that Mr. Peary
reached that latitude.
Seventh-That ' Captain . Bartlett
brought back from 87 degrees 48
minutes duplicate records of. Mr.
Peary's march and of his own to
prove absolutely that Mr. Peary
reached that latitude.
Eighth-That the sledge of Dr.
Cook's was of such a type, not built
cn the'linea of any Artic explorer's
sledge, that ij could not possibly have
lasted for a. march of a day with a
standard load of 500 or 600 pounds.
Ninth-That Dr*. Cook's snow shoes
were of a impracticable type for use
in the Artic and were. not of the kind
that would - conduce to speed.
Tenth-That . Dr. Cook's leaving of
his records at Etah was a scheme on
his part by which he could claim they
were lost or destroyed, and so could
escape being forced to produce them.
Eleventh-That no man who had
carried the American flag to the Pole
would leave-such a slight and easily
transported article in charge of a
Twelfth-That Dr. Cook did hav*
fresh dog teams from Etah and could
have carried his burdens to TJner
. Thirteenth-That when 1 Harry
Whitney went on board the Jeanie
he did not take time to go back to
Etah and get the articles that he must
have known were valuable to Dr.
Fourteenth-That if Dr. Cook did
leave such priceless articles at the
Eskimo village Mr. Whitney would
mave been anxious to have rushed
them to the United. States. . - "
IOTH REACHED THE POLE
certain belongings to bring home on
the vessel, that was coming up for
Whitney, hut as this ship had not
arrived Whitney was at a loss what
to do with this property.
Peary declined to permit Dr. Cook 's
belongings to be brought aboard the
Roosevelt,- and he put Whitney on his
honor not to include anything be
longing to Dr. Cook in hit own lug
gage. Whitney thereupon went
ashore from the Roosevelt, 'separated
Dr.' Cook's ,property from his own
baggage and repacked Cook's proper
ty in boxes. After this had been done
Whitney and Bartlett^ cached all
Cook's property ih a cave in the
rocks.. They T?uilt np the cave se
curely with stones and turf and left
it and the property in charge of one
of Dr. Cook's Eskimos.
It may be rema'ked in passing,*
Mr. Whitney went on, that ten years
ago Peary did with the explorer
Sverdrup, who was cruising in S ~:?h
sound, what he Jias done with Cook;
he refused to. bring back any of
Sverdrup's letters or records.
In conclusion Mr. Whitney declared
he regretted teing dragged into this
controversy. He said he had found
both Dr. Cook and Commander Peary
courteous and considerate and that
he had never met any mea whose
conduct generally was more com
mendable or whose dealing with him
had been* more fair.
Dr. Cook Satisfied With Statement.
New York, Special.-Dr. Cook
when shown Mr. Whitney's statement
said that he approved of all that
Mr. Whitney has said.
"Everything in the interview is
substantially correct," said Dr. Cook.
"It confirms all my declarations."
Concerning the papers left with MK

another an artificial. horizon,' while
in the third, I believe, there was a

several boxes of other personal ef
fects, clothing and specimens. It is,
of couse possible that Cook's records
may be among these, as the doctor
packed them himself, but he said
nothing to me of any records.

EVIDENCE AGAINST LITTLE
Damaging Testimony of His Wifs
Will Convict Him of His Wholesale
Bluefield, W. Va., Special.-Th<i
guilt of Howard Little, who was ar
rested about a week ago charged
with the murder of "Aunty Betsy"
Justice, George A. Meadows and wife
and their three children, seems now to
be established beyond a reasonable
doubt. Little's wife confessed Satur
day to having washed his bloody
clothing after the murder and in ber
affidavit she . says also that he left
their home about dark on the night of
the murd-sr and returned thc next
morning with his clothes all loody
and torn and said that he would kill
her if she told anything about his
condition. He borrowed a 32"-caliber
revolver a few days before the crime
was committed and returned'- it on'the
following Wednesday with two cham
bers empty. ' The body of George
Meadows was exhumed and two bul
lets taken from it by Doctors Richard
son and White, were almost identical
in weight-with the balls taken from
shells belonging to the weapon Little
had1 borrowed. >
Little's wife also turned over the
lantern that he had brought home
with him that night when showed file
marks as if some one had tried to re
' move stains. He was seen in the barn
next morning folding papers across
his knee apparently counting money
and he gave $20 to a woman with
whom he had planned to start for the
west a few days after the murder was
committed with which to buy clothingi
and prepare for the train. Having
done this she returned $1.80 to Little
at which time she swears he threaten
ed her life if she revealed any part of
their secret. Requisition papers have
been ?pplid for and as soon as they
can be secured Little will be taken to
Lebanon to await his trial. Threats
of lynching are freely made.

?)f all the menaces to humanity- ,
the Black Peril of the plague, the j
Red Peril of communism, the Yellow j
Peril of the fever of the tropics- j
there is none more . grave, more
fraught with the possibilities of death
than the Whi^ ' Peril of infected ,
milk, says Nathan Straus in the De-; ?
lineator.- But there is no-danger to j
life more easily overcome. Pasteur- |
Ization renders the milk supplies sale, i
The White Peril .is as closely re- |
lated as cause and effect to the White
Plague, that annually exacts the for
feiture of nearly #one hundred and |
Bixty thousand lives in this country i
alone. This fact is' recognized and |
declared - by all impartial scientific ii
men. Carefully compiled vitaLfctatis- i
tics from a portion of. the United
States containing,'in 1966, 40,9&6,
317 inhabitants, showed that,ih that j
year, in those parts of 'the country, <
75,512 people died from tub?rculo- <
sis, 13,16ft from typhoid fevers 10,^- I
793 from diphtheria','3227 irom.Bcar- 1
let fever and 42,581 babies under i
two years were victims of diarrhea.
These five causes were responsible
for 145,273 out of a total of 658,105 J
deaths from all diseases, and acct- 1
dents. To say that all bf these 145,- i
273 deaths were caused by milk, i
would be going beyond the evidence. 2
But I am quite within the thoroughly I
proved facts of the >case in asserting (
that in acted milk is a. common cause 1
of these diseases, and that it is fair 1
to attribute a '.arge proportion of }
these 'deaths to the use of milk that 1
contained tba microscopic germs '
which produce these diseases. 1
But the remedy for this frightful <
slaughter is not to taboo milk Pas
teurization is a simple, inexpensive,
non-patented process by- which all '
milk that is produced under fairly '
decent conditions may be made safe *
for human food. The process con- 1
sists in bringing the milk to a tem-, )
perature of 157 degrees and main- 1
taming that degree of-heat for twen- 1
ty minutes, so as to kill all the germs '
of disease.. Then the milk is Quickly 1
cooled, and it may be used without J
peril. It should be bottled, which- is j
the only safe method for di3tribu?
tion. ' ' 1

It has tjeen- found that the house
originally had an overhanging second
story, which at some time was walled(
up, leaving the old wall with its nar
row clapboarding still in place. This

side to fit the house for settlement

purchased the estate adjoining on the
north. Altogether about $6500 b

anything of the sort yet printed in

men and women seated alternately in
a. circle: .
Suddenly one of my neighbors'
grinds her body against mine and
gives a little cry. '
"There!"1 she exclaims.
I, too, see a vague light flickering
against the curtain, far up near the
top, and to the right, of the opening
Info the cabin?t. . It -ls a luminous
nebulosity. At the end of a minute
within this light, which is wavering
and fluctuant, there comes a globe of
radiance which is clearly outlined
against the black curta \n. At first ?
thia globe is no bigger than a golf
ball. It augments rapidly until it-is
the size of an infant's bead. * There
seems to be gray spots on it and lit- . .
tie points of brighter radiance. "(Dr.
de Vesme says one might have been '..
watching the genesis of a child, all
the slow growth crowded into a pan-,/,
oramic moment.) The ball is now; ?
the size of a man's head, and the ex
treme brilliancy has faded .from it.
There is a bluish tonality in the neb
ulous mass. >[ . . V - ' . i ^
For a while it hangs against the
curtain; then, as though lt had
shaken itself loose, lt descends tn
zigzag lines to the floor and hovers
there. ' It is a ball of blue-stained
light; bluish as Sheffield steel. It
rises and falls, floats this way and
that, now toward the curtain, again
two "or three feet away.. There isva
time when it has drifted within five
feet of my knee?. Then lt becomes
stationary. It grows taller; it is as
though the head rose while below it
the shadowy light took on consistence
It grows until it has attained the
height of a man. The human form,
uncertain at first, is clearly accentu
ated. You see the head (which was
the ball), tbe arms, the. hands; but
all this you see behind ' nebulous
drapery. The figure is now very near
ly, sir feet high. It wavers there.
Abruptly a circle of light, like a gflf
crown, forms on the head. The eyes
are visible. '
Silence now; only you feel the.
lurching of those magnetic waves as ,
the women press themselves harder
against you, clutching with hands,
grinding with knees. (This is not .
rhetoric. I am leading you to a for
midable fact. I iterate it so that you
may have clearly in mind the physical
basis of the chain.") Then in the
profound silence; a voice, strong and
"I am Dr. Benton."
