; 1 have le;rned that the question of
the jv.nerihip of the pole has been
broached in the English house of com
mons. I have just mailed a note '.o
the presiding genius of that augu.a
body notifying him that I am the party
who will pay the taxes if any are 'o
. be paid. 1 have my own ideas as to
, what :?e I will make of thf realty
surrounding the pole. I had first
planned to endow there a home for in
digent ex-officeholders; and those who
had tried for office and had failed to
get in on the money in the race. But
on Hjecontl thought I lemeiiiijeied that
I would be included nndr tho second
classification and determined to reach
tome tther solution for ;he proper use
to make of my new holdings. You will
perceive that I am now the heaviest
taxpayer in the polish regions. Thors
was an old Eskimo, Mike Beryanek-
elmotheyn, who had title to the whole
diggings. He was stalled in a snow
- drift one Christmas night while on a
shopping trip buying presents fur his
wife. They found him two days after

After passing nine cornfields, we
struck the prairie. It was dotted with
stumps. Once a forest. All the trees
had been hewn and carried to the
mills to be cruelly sliced into slabs.

they could not find it.

O MATTER whether the credit for the dis
covery of the North Pole rightly belongs to
Cook or Peary that is a subject over which
their friends and the world at large will wrangle
and dispute for months and possibly years. Scien
tific, Historical and Geographical Societies and Arc
tic Clubs will take a hand, and the discussion is
likely to be energetic, caustic and bitter.
We intend to hold aloof from this controversy
End all efforts that may be made to embroil us in
the scientific or sentimental disputation will only
result in our positive neutral attitude which we have
taken from the very first. Messrs. Cook and Peary
are both friends of ours and we cannot consistently
be called upon to arbitrate between them. We think
the Pole is large enough for all three of us, Cook,
Peary and ourselves, to 'stand upon.
There is, however, a subject which we feel
competent and desirous of presenting frequently to
the oublic the supremacy of this storcrits broaden
ing lines, its greater plans, its widening sphere of
usefulness, its style prestige, its leadership in all
that makes for a great mercantile house, its splen
