MARY IS RETURNING
WITH POLAR HONORS
PRACTICALLY LOST TO WORL

Miles Further South Before He

tails of Trip.
Robert E. Peary. having "nailed
(1he Stars and Stripes to the pole' on
April 6. 1909. as told in his series of
messages flashed by wireless Tues
day from t,he coast of Labrador, is
figuratively lost to the world, home
ward bound on his ship. the Roose
At Copenhagen, Denmark, royalty
continues to pay homage to Dr. Fred
erick A. Cook, the Brooklyn explor
er, who announced six days ago in
a message not unsimilar to Comman
der Peary's that he had placed the
flag of this coAntry at the pole on
April 21. 1908.
Neither saw indications of t<he oth
er's achievement, both will be in the
United States before the close of the
present month. Commander Peary,
on the Roosevelt. was in the Strait of.
Belle Isle. between Newfoundland
and the Province of Quebec, Wed
neSday night. But it is uncertain at
what point he will toueh first to am
plify the meagre news of Tuesday. In
adequate telegraphic facilities on the
.Izbrador coast and the noirthwest
coast of Newfoundland may move
him to decide to proceed on south
ward to North Sydney. Nova. Scotia,
before he gives to the world- details of1
'his triumphs in the North.
No Telegraph at Chateau Bay.
The commander -had intended stop
ping at Chateau bay. Labrador, but
the telegraph station there was
abandoned some time ago and the
Roosevelt mus.: push her nose further
soath before the world obtains the
news. As she comes down the New
foundland coast. Red bay and further
south St. George bay are at .hand, but
whether Pearv will avail himself of
these, points or conitinue , to North
Sydney. Cape Breton, where he will
1have every facility at hand. is a mat
ter of conjecture. It i. 450 miles
from Chateau bay to North Sydney,
and the time of his arrival can only
be guessed. Buit the Roosevelt may
reach there late Thursday.

tain and with no specific message to
meet him. Mrs. Peary is waitng at

Herbert L. Bridgman, secretary of
the Peary Artic club, left New York
for North Sydney tonigh.t. In addi

nessages from the Explorer' s elub.
of whien~ Commander Peary and Dr.
Cook .are both members:
Explorer's Club Greetings.
-The Explorers' club sends you
heartiest congratulations upon your
triumphant attainmnent of the long
sought goal--the North Pole."
Ant.honv Fiala. who commanded
one of' the Zeigler expeditions to the
pole, is a memb)er of the board of
di-rectors sending the message.
Several additional messaes, filIed
Tuesday at Indian Harbor, were re
elved by associates of Commander
Peary. 'but none of them gave any
furtiher details of his conquest.
Through Mr. Bridgman he notified all
g.eograpyhical societies of the wonld of
his discovery and in addition sent a
personal dispatch to the National
Geozraphical societ.v at Washington
saving: "Have won at last. The
nole is ours."
In a message to Director Bumpus
of t.he American Museum of Natural
History in New York, he announced
that he is bringing home a valuable
collection for t.he institution.
Thousands of Congratulatory Mes
Thousands of congratulatory mes
sages have ,been sent in return to the
explorer, two of the most notable of
which are from Lieut. Shackleton, the
English Aitaretic explorer, and Maj.
Leonard 'Darwin, president of the
Royal Geograph.iual society. The Na
tional Geographical socie'y called a
meeting directly after receiving
Peary 's message and quickly tele
.graphed a reply of 'hearty praise. The
N\ew York Zoological society sent its
-eh of the world-wide praise through
~ts president in this city, while hun
irneds of less important messages went
northward to meet the returning tray-.
In Copenhagen Dr. Cook was shown
a statement credited to Peary that
he (Peary) was the first discoverer
of the pole. Declining to enter into
a controversy t'he Brooklyn physician
briefly dismissed the subject.
The tooting of whistles of passing
traft paid tribute to the explorer's
~wife on her island home today while
his "snow baby"' daughter acknow

RIVALRIY TO FILL
PEARY'S SUCCESS WILL SWELL
American Makes High Bid for Re
' turned Explorer's Works on
His Polar Dash.
Copenhagen. Sept. 7.-One of the
most remarkable results of Comman
der Peary's rivalry with Dr. Cook for
the discovery of the pole is that Dr.
Cook 's profits from the enterprise
are likely to be largely increased. He
received today offers for his books
and lectures a.t twice the figures pre
viously tendered. One American of
the highest standing cabled terms al
most startling.and far beyond any sum
thitiherto paid for such works. Dr.
Cook is likely <to accept this offer.
The controversy is beginning to
grow warmer here. Commander
Peary'-s statement is accepted as true,
but there is a following very faithful
to Dr. Cook. He lectured before the
Geographical society tonight. added
little to the information he had al
ready given out 'with reference to his
expedition and repeated the declara
tion of <bis inten,tion to withhold de
tails unti-l the publication of his book.
Has Distinguished Audiences.
The king and queen. Prince George
of Greece and his consort and many
of the members of the royal family,
together with a large gathering of the
most prominent people in Copenhagen,
this afternoon witnessed the presen
tation to Dr. Cook of a gold medal
by the crown prince. and listened to
the explorer's lecture afterwards.
Standing in front of an immense
map of the Arctic region. which was
surmounted by the Stars and Stripes
Dr. Cook outlined his progress to the
North Pole. Introducing the explorer,
the crown prince said that his recep
tion in Greenland and at Copenhagen
showed the way the Danes appreciat
ed ihis wonderful exploit. The prince
:hen begged ti.e honor of presenting
to him the medal of the Geographical

TELEPHONE GIRLS MUST
SAY "NUMBER, PLEASE."
Did you use the telephione to-day?
Then you noticed a difference in the
way the telephone girls answered
your call, didn't you?~ What! Of
course you noticed that little 'please'
that was tacked on after the call num
Just think a momient arnd you'll re
Imember. Here's the way it was. In
e:ed of having the telephone girl
answer 'Number?'' when you call
ed sh mdrlsrd "Naumber, please."
That exa.ctlIY what it WaI_. :III
there's a reason for it.
It may seem a small thing for the
telephone girl to tack on that little
"please'" at .the end of tihe answer
to calls. but the Southern Bell Tele
phone and Telegraph management
doesn't think so. The company thinks
it's ample wonth while, consequently
an order has been issued to every
telephone exchange in the Southern
Bell company's territory, wthich ex
tends over seven States. that every
operator answers all calls in the fu
ture by "Number, please ?'instead of
simply inquiring ''Number?'
The order is effective at" all ex
ehanges of the company. It is believed
by the telephone management that the
change in .the answer made by the
telephone girl to the .calls that are re
ceived will improve the service and
be thoroughly appreciated by the pul)
Now, don't think because you fail
to get the new answer that the tele
phone girls are not on the job as the
:rder calls for. It's just a case of hav
ing gotten the habit-see? Give them
. little t'ime to tack on the "please"
nd see if you don't feel better with
he new order of things. You'll be de
dihted with that sweet little
'please" ,before you know i,t.-Col
