EXPLORERS' CLUB EXPEL MOK
Claim That He Climbed Mount Mc-!
Kinley is Rejected.-Charged
New York, Docember 24.-The
board of governors, of the Explorers'
elub, met today in executive session,
and standing in silence, voted with
bowed heads that Dr. Frederick A.
Cook be [dropped from the rolls of
the club for frauds practiced on its
members and on the public.
Coming hard upon the heels of the
crushing verdict lately rendered by
the Unive'rsity of Cooeihagen, the ac
:ion of the Explorers' club today is
the result of inidependent investiga
tions, which in now way touch upoi
the Polar controversy, and the weight
of its disapproval thus become cum
Preliminary to its vote of expul
sion, the board nmet to pass upon the
report of its committee, which has
been investigating the validity of Dr.
Cook's assertion that he reached the
snmmit of Mount McKinley. This
committee, in conoludi:-g an exhaus
tive report, recommended that "Dr.
Cook's claim that he ascenided the
summit. of Mount McKinley in 1906
be rejected by the Explorers' clu,b as
unworthy of oredence."
The committee's recommendation
was based on its finding that "Dr.
Cook had repeatedly made statements
that have not been in acoodd with
the facts, and that he had entered in
to agreements which he has failed to
keep and that the misstatements and
broken agreements deal not only with
the matters appertaining to discovery
but 'o ordinary financial transactions,
so. that no eredence can be given to
statements made. by him."
OLD "DIXIE" BEST.
South's Fighting Song Leads All in
Popularity.-Verdict of 0. C.
Washington, Dec. 23.-"Dixie"
has finally been officially proclaimed
as first in American songs and music
in ".patriot-ic popularity." Such is
the verdict,of 0. G. T. Sonneck, ehief
of the division of music'of the library
of eongress, who has just issued from
the government press an exhausti-ve
report on four fautons American mus
ical compositions. "Yankee Doodle,"
though no longer a national song, -is
still a national air and second& only
to "Dixie" in the popularity contest.
The origin and evolution of "Yan
kee Doodle," "Star Spangled Ban
ner." "Hail Columbia," and "Amer
ica," are treated in full detail in Mr.
He has fam2isheid as far as possi
-ble a corect version of both text and
musie of all four pieces. Fac similes
of the original manuscript.s are repro
duced in tlk volume.
The historv of "Y:ankee Doodle"
is described as "a perfect maze of
conflicting stories" and countless ad
ditions to and variations from the
original. As mxany as 14 variations
of the "Star Spangled Banner" are
noted, accompanied by a gradual pro*
eess of polisliing d modiication.
*The year in wvhieh "America" was
nirst sung in public is fixed as 1832,
but the exmet place and date was not
definitely ascertained. "Hail Colum
bia"' is strictly a produe.t of the Uni
te'd States in botlh words a.nd music
in #6ntradietion- .to "America" ani
the "Star Spangled Banner," bot]
of which partly originated in Eng
land. Mr. Sonneek 's volume is nol
for free distribution.

The murder of Mr. Liddell was un

been called out so promptly. Lid

stockings already lined the mantle,
when he was suddenly pounced upon
by a man who jumped from behinid a

In the alleged onfession Fuller im
