Earrill's affidavit states in offect lii
was the only person present with Coo?:
on the date when he claimed to havt
reached the summit of Mount McKin
ley, that they did not in fact reach the
summit and the nearest point to the
summit reached was at least 1 I miles
distant from the summit and that th
mountain elevation at no time exceed
ing 10,000 feet.

Barrill's affidavit also brin-.;.- iiiio
question a number of photographs
which Cook has given as non ' nt iugj
me summit and oilier ng:i ;;i:it!iii'S
of Mount McKinley, some of which he
declares were drawn from imagination.
The affidavit gives detail.-; of the
climb beginning Sept. :, U I'.. Iiatril!
declares that Sept. 12 tin- elevation
did not exceed tf.no i f i"t. but under
the direction of Ciok, lie alleges, the
figures wore- changed to IJ.o.; i, ami
that by Cook's orders he stopped keep
ing a diary. They slopped the dim'),
according to Barrill, Sept. n; and ro
turned to their launch at the foot f
the glazier, which they reached th"
CIinnKdl the liary.
Barrill says that under Cool;';; direc
tion he made a number of changes
in the diary and wrote up the record,
which had been suspended en the 12th.
From the 19th of September to Nov. f
the record was made by Barrill and
he savs contains actual facts. Cook.
he says, claimed the point reached
Sept. 12 was the top of the inouptai'i.
whereas Barrill claims the summit wc.r
probably 20 miles distant.
Leave Peak Out.
When he suggested the peaks be
yond might show in the photograph
taken by Cook, Barrill alleges. Cook
told him the picture was taken at such
an angle the peaks would not show.
These peaks Barrill sketched in a
diary, which he says ho made himself.
He says that when he made this
sketch he could see the top o Mount
McKinley off to the northwest at leat
20 miles? away.
Admitted the Dereptlnn.
The remainder of the affidavit is do
voted to details of trip down the moun
tain. It also declares Cook admitted
on the 12th of September they were
not over 8,000 feet high when th-i
photograph pretending to bo the to,)
of the mountain was taken. Me de
clares they never built snow hous-
on the mountainand that the drawing
in Cook's book showing such a houc?
Is false. -
