' THE ARGUS. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER' C. 1908.
THE NORTH POLE IS HIS GOAL
Anthony Fiala Believes Fr. Frederick Cook May Reach It
, . Splendidly Equipped.
' ' Ere ibis tbe Ion;; sought north pole
may nave been discovered. -Dr. Fred
crick A. Cook, the arctic explorer, may
be the finder. Anthony Fiala believes
Dr. Cook is close to the pole if not ac
Dr.. Cook's wife and two children
live in Brooklyn. The last heard of
him was March 17 last, when he was
on, the polar ice north of Cape Thomas
Hubbard, 5G0 miles from the pole. He
wnjj on the eve of making a dash for
it, accompanied by a few Eskimos, with
dogs, sleds and supplies. Mrs. Cook is
confideut her husband will overcome
all obstacles and return safe.. It wili
be impossible to bear from him again
before next summer.
When Dr. Cook started u year ago
last spring , for a polar hunting trip
with John It. Bradley, a wealthy New
Yorker, lie had no intention of tryiug
to grab, the north pole. They went in
a 110 ton Gloucester lishins schooner,
renamed the John U. Bradley, with
Dr. Cook in command.
When the hunting trip ended in Au
gust, 1007. it was expected that' Dr.
Cook would couie back on the schoou
er, but at Aunortok. on the northwest
ern, coast of Greenland, he decided to
remain and make a dash for the pole,
says the New York Evening World,
ltudolph Kranke. a member of the
crew, volunteered to stay at Aunortok
and watch the supplies. He recently
returned to New York with a letter
from Dr. Cook, dated -March 17. the
polar sea. north of Cape IIulliul. In
it Dr. Cook said: "I am ttiklng a
straight course for the pole. I hope to
succeed. At any rate, I will make a

ences in tbe fur north, said in part:

Ccok made a sledge trip to the Big
Humboldt glacier and returned to win
ter quarters at the beginning of the
long arctic night. It was at this time
very cold, 30 or 40 degrees below zero
The ice was not always firm, being

are lacking in either -smartness, per

correct in all three respects.

and traveling was dangerous, especial
ly in the morning and at evening.
"Dr, Cook was nearly drowned and
escaped with his life in an encounter
with polar bears. The grease in the
guns was so hard that he could not
use them, nnd they put knives on long
sticks to defend their lives against the
bears. . r
"One time when Dr. Cook was away
from camp on a trip I prepared dog
food for the spring campaign. We
found a wajvto prepare dog food that
will give Dr. Cook an Immense advan
tage oyer all other explorers.' - -
"In the middle of November our
fnrs were nearly gone. Then came the
holidays of Christmas and New , Year,
but we did not have much time to de
vote to them. - . :
"Jan. 10 Dr. Cook sent me over to
Flagler bay with three Eskimos to hunt
for musk ox and to look after tho peo
ple who we supposed had been left
there from a shipwreck, but we found
nobody. The thermometer registered
73 below zero. ' .
"The las weeks we were together
there was a lot to do. and. everything
being completed, we started on Feb. 20
for the far north. I remember it was
early noon when we left our quarters
and camped the first night in three
snow houses on the ice tloe In Kane
basin. The next day. after 140 days of
darkness, we again saw the sun and
reached Cape Sabine late in the even
ing. Here we were storm bound the
next day. The last day's march brought
us to Kice strait, ten miles northwest
of tJreely's memorable, wiuter quar
ters of lssri-4. The next march brought
us in Flagler bay, and Dr. Cook sent
me back to Annortok Marcli 3 with the
first division after placing provisions
at the bead of Flagler bay to guard
our winter quarters.
"I believe thai everything is O. IC.
with ?rv Cook, but of course some
thing must be done next year for his
Memltcrs of the Peary club and the
Explorers' club have for some weeks
been discussing the advisability of fit
ting out an exedition to hunt for Dr.
Cook. No relief measures can be taken.

ADRIFT IN A BALLOON.
"f , V- .
Experience at Sea of International Bal
. toon Racers. ' . '
On board the steamship Prluz Wil
helm, which recently arrived at Leith,
Scotland, were Dr. Niemeyer and hi
assistant,' Hans Ileideinann, the. crew
of the German balloon Busley, one of
the competitors in the great interna
tional balloon race which was held at
a suburb of Berllu.
Dr. Niemeyer aud Ilerr Heidemann
arrived in London wearing cheap
ready made clothing which they
bought In Udinbnrgh. virtually having
leeu naked' when "rescued. The sail
ors of the collier which picked them
np lent them garments unlil they could
purchase others. , , . -
Their story of the hours ' when they
believed they were facing. death upon
the night waves of the North sea is
thrilling, says a special Loudon cable
dispatch to the New York Sun. After
being blown over Cuxhaven they
were not nlarmed at the prospect of be
ing carried across the sea. On the
contrary, they were elated, for the
wind was driving them northwest, aud
as it was estimated their gas would,
last fifteen hours they saw a prospect'
of landing In England nud winning the
race. But a little later the wlud veer
ed and, blowing with terrific force,
drove them uorthward through pitch
darkness nnd bitter cold. When they
realized the situation Dr.. Niemeyer
exclaimed, "Now we have, done lt!"- ,
"Yes, we are In for it," responded
Ileldemann, and each was silently b,usy
with his own thoughts. 1
Presently they saw the lights of two
or three ships far below. Thoy shouted
and signaled with their electric lamps
in vain. They were driven helplessly .
for two" hours. About dawn they saw;
tbe i lights of the Prinz Wilhelm and
signaled frantically, and at . last the .
steamer's foghorn answered them. -
Dr. Niemeyer, telling the story, said:
"Heldetnann shouted. 'We are saved f
but we little knew. The worst -was yet
to come. Suddenly we realized that we
were traveling much faster than the ;
6teamer and unless we opened the
valve and dropped the chance of res
cue would be gone. I opened the valve
of the balloon, and the car Btruck tbe
waves with tremendous force. The
car, being weighted with ballast, in
stantly sank, and we were submerged
to the armpits. ,
"We climbed the ropes and 'grasped
the extension ring. There was enough
gas left in the balloon to keep It above
the water, but the whole thing was
driven flopping "through the waves
which buffeted us in the darkness. We
were suddenly thrown Into consterna
tion to see the Trlnz Wllhelm's lights
growing dimmer, and we watched them
lessening until they, almost disap
"We could not Itcllevt IBat we were
abandoned. It must 1? that .we were,
still speeding faster than the steamer.
The gas bag acted as a sail, and our
only hope seemed to be to rip It. Pull
ing " the ripping cord with all the
strength left in my numbed arms, the
envelope collapsed on the water, -and
the car sank deeper.' - ; ' . -
"Half - frozen- and choked by Ihe
waves, which we could not avoid; with
eyes smarting from the salt water and
naked except for our trousers, having
hastily tripcd In readiness for -a
swim, we still held on. for; our lives
with our bauds, having lost all foot
hold when the- basket sank.
"The steamer's lights were uow mere
specks In the darkness. So they had
abandoned us. "Men. men. how enn
you forsake us? It isn't humanf I
shouted fulllcly. V ., . ,
"Then tha lig!its vanished altogether.
We saw ourend near. I said to Ilelde
mann, I cannot bold out Much, longer.'
" Nor can 1." lie answered quietly.
; , "As we KTl;'!ed the netting for a new
hold our b'iMuls touched. We. Involun
tarily claspeJ fingers.
. :"'Goodb.vr 1 said. 'If won't last
touch longer." - ' . :
" 'Goodby!' res)icnded Ueidemann
"I shut my eyes to await the end.
Suddenly out of the darkness we heard
a shout. It was a human voice, the
sweetest sound I ever-heard.- Rapidly
nearlns cs was a boat which the rrina

voice in the German tongue, and the
boat drew, alongside, and the brave
sailors with difficulty helped us on

"I hardly know how we fought death
and won. . Twenty minutes later the
steamer came up and took us on board
It picked up the balloon too. The caji
taln and crew treated us in the best
possible manner, and, thank God. we
are here to say so. But we .are dlsa

XofStoy's Senso Honor.
At one music party at Count Tolstoy's
a lady's singing displeased the count's
boys, and they adjdnrned to another
room and made a noise. Their father
lst patience and went after them, and
a characteristic admonition ensued.
"Are you making a noise on pur
pose?" he asked.
After some hesitation came an an
swer in the affirmative. "Y-y-yes.'V
"Does not her singing please you?"
"Well, no. Why does she howl?" de
clared one of the boys, with vexation.
"So you wiBh to protest against ber
singing?" .asked Lyeft Nlkolaevltch in
a serious tone. . : , - . -
"Yes." , . : '."
"Then go out and say so or stand in
the middle of the room and tell every
one present, . .That would be rude, bnt
upright and honest. But you have got
together and are so,uealmg like grass
hoppers In a corner. ' I will not endure
