INTRODUCTION DY PEARY.
Bomo of my reasons for saying that
Dr. Cook did not go to tho north polo
will bo understood by those who rend
the following statements of tlio two
Eskimo boys who went with htm, nml
who told mo and others of my party
where ho did ro. Several Eskimos
who started with Dr. Cook from An
oratok In February, 1908. wero at
Utah when I arrived thcro In August,
1008. They told mo thnt Dr. Cook hnd
with him, after they left, two Eskimo
boys, or young men, two "ledges and
some twenty dogs. The boys wero
I-took-n-shoo and Ah-pe-lah. I had
known them from their childhood
One was about eighteen and the other
about nineteen years of ngo.
On my return from Cape Sheridan
and nt the very first settlement I
toucned (Nerke, near Capo Chalon) In
August, 1909, and nine days before
reaching Etah, the Eskimos told mo,
In a general way, whero Dr Cook had
been; that ho had wintered In Jones
Sound, and that he had told tho white
men at Etah that bo had been a long
w.-iy north, but that tho boys who were
with him, I-took-n-shoo and Ah-pe-lah,
said that this was not so. Tho Eski
mos laughed at Dr. Cook's story. On
reaching E,tah, I talked with tho Es
kimos thcro and with tho two boys
and naked them to descrlbo Dr. Cook's
Journey to members of my party and
myself. This they did In tlio manner
(Sinned) It. K. PEAKY.
Signed Statement of Peary, Qartlett,
McMillan, Borup and Henson, In Re
gard to Testimony of Cook's Two !
Tho two Eskimo boys, I-took-a-aboo
and Ah-pe-lah, who accompanied Dr.
Cook while ho was away from Anora
tok In 1903 and 1993, -were questioned
separately nml Independently, and
were corroborated by Ponlkpah, the
father of ono of them (I-took-n shoo),
who was personally familiar with tho
first third and tho last third of their
Journey, and who said that tho .routo
for tho remaining third, as shown by
them, was as described to him by his
son after his return with "Dr. -Cook.
Tho narrative of these Eskimos Is
as follows: t -
They, with Dr. Cook.rFrancko and
nine other Eskimos, left Anoratok,
crossed Smith's Sound to, Capo Sabine,
slept in Commander Peary'a old house
In Payer Harbor, then went through
Hlco straK to Buchanan bay. After a
few inarches Franckc'and three' Eski
mos returned to Anoratok.
Dr. Cook, with the others, then pro
ceeded up Flagier bay, a branch of
Uuchanan bay, and crossed Elles
mere Land through tho valley pass at
the head of Flagler bay. Indicated by
Commander Peary In 1S38, and utilized
by Sverdmp In-1899, to the head of
Sverdrup's "Hay Fiord" on the west
side of Ellesmere Land.
Their route then lay' out throuch
this fiord, thenco(north through Sver
drup's "Heuerka Sound" and Nansen
On their way they killed musk oxen
and bear, and mado caches, arriving
eventually at a point on tho west sldo
of Nansen strait (shore of Axel Hel
berg Land of Sverdrup), south of
Capo Thomas Hubbard.
A cache was formed here and tho
four Eskimos did not go beyond this
point. Two others, Koolootlngwah and
Inughlto, went on ono moru march
with Dr. Cook and tho two boys,
helped to build the snow Igloo then
returned without sleeping.
After being Informed of tho boys'
narrative thus far, Commander I'cary
suggested a aeries of questions to bo
put to tho boys In regard to this trip
from tho land out and back to It.
Theso questions and answors were
Did they cross many open lands or
much open water during this time?
Did they mako any caches out on
tho Ice? Ans. No.
Did thoy kill any bear or seal while
out on the Ice north of Capo Thomas
Hubbard? Ans. No.
Did thoy kill or loso, any of their
dogs while out on tho !co? Ans. No,
With how many sledges did they
start? Ans. Two.
How many dogs did thoy havo? Ans.
Jo not remember exactly, but aoine
hlng over twenty.
How mnny atedgoi did they havo
when they got back to land? Ana.
Did they havo any provisions toft on
their sledges when they camo back to
land? Ans. Yea; tho sledgea still hnd
about nil they could enrry, so thoy
wero nble to take but n few ttilngK
from tho cache.
Front hero they went southwest
along tho northwest roast of ltelberff
lind to n point Indicated, on tho map
(Sverdrup's Capo Northwest).
From hero they went weat across
tho Ice, which was level and covered
with snow, offering good going, to n
low Island which they had seen from
tho shore of Helborg I.and nt Capo
Northwest. On this Island thoy
camped for ono sleep.
From this Island they could no two
lands beyond (Sverdrup's Ellef Ring
nes and Amund RlnQnes Lands). From
the Island they journeyed toward the
left-hand one of these two lands
(Amund Rlnges Land), passing a
small Island which they did not visit.
The answers of the Eskimo boys to
Commander Peary'a series of Inde
pendent questions, showing that thty
killed no game, made no caches, lost
no dogs, and returned to the land
with loaded tledfles, makes their at
tainment of the pole on the trip
north of Cape Thomas Hubbard a
physical and mathematical Impossi
bility, as It would demand the sub
sistence of three men and over twen
ty dogs during a journey of ten hun
dred and forty geographical miles on
less than two sledge loads of supplies.
If It Is suggested that perhaps Dr.
Cook got mixed and that he reached
the pole, or thought ha did, between
the time of leaving the northwest
coast of Helberg Land at Cape North,
west, and his arrival at Rlngnes Land,
where they killed the deer, we must
then add to the date of Dr. Cook's let
ter of March 17th, at or near Cape
Thomas Hubbard, the subsequent four
or five sleeps at that point, and the
number of days required to march
from Cape Thomas Hubbard to Cape
Northwest (a distance of some sixty
nautical miles), which would advance
his date of departure from the land
to at least the 25th of March, and be
prepared to accept the claim that Dr
Cook went from Cape Northwest
(about latitude eighty and a half de
grees north) to the pole, a distance of
five hundred and seventy geographical
miles, In twenty-seven days.
After killing tho deer they then trar
eled south along tho east sldo of Hlng
nes Lmd to the point Indicated on the
chart, whero they killed another deer
They then went cast across the
south part of Crown Prlnco Gustav
sea to tho south end of Helberg Land,
then down through Norwegian bay,
whore they secured some bears, but
not until nftcr they bad killed some of,
their dogs, to the cast side of Gra
ham Island; then eastward to thq lit
tle bay marked "Eld's Fiord" on Sver
drup's chart; then southwest to HeU'a
Gate and Simmons peninsula.
Hero for-the first time during tho
entire Journey, dxcept as already
noted off Capu Thomas It. Hubbard,
they encountered open water. On this
point the boys were clear, emphatic.
and unshakable. Tbey spent a good
deal of time In this region, and Anally
abandoned their dogs and ono slcdgo,
took to their boat, crossed Hell's Gate
to North KenL up Into Norfolk InleL
then back along the north coast of
Colin Archer Peninsula to Cape Vera,
whero they obtained fresh elder duck
eggs. Hore they cut the remaining
slcdgo off, that Is shortened It, as It
was awkward to transport with tho
boat, and near here they killed a wal
From Cape Vera they went on down
Into the southwest angle of Jones
Sound, whero they killed a seal;
thenro east along the south coast of
the sound, killing three bears at tho
point noted on the map, to tbe penln
aula known as Capo Sparbo on the
map, about midway on tho south side
of Jones Sound. Hero they killed
somo musk-oxen and, continuing east,
killed four more at the place Indi
cated on the chart, and were Anally
stopped by the pack Ico at the mouth
of Jones Sound, From here thoy
turned back to Capo Sparbo, whore
they wintered and killed many musk
Aftor tho sun returned In 1903 they
started, pushing their slcdgo, across
Jones Sound to Capo Tennyson, thenco
along tho coast to Clarenco Head;
(passing Inside of two small Islands
not shown on tho chart, but drawn on
It by tho boys), whero tbey killed a
beur; thenco acrosa tho broad bight
In tho coast to Cadogan Fiord, thenco
around Cane Isabella and up to Com
mandor Peary'a old house In Payer
Harbor near Cape Sabine, whero thoy
found a seal cached for them by Pan-
Ikpah, Itook-n-shoo'a father From
hero they crossed Smith Sound on tha
Ice, arriving at Anoratok.
