EDGERTON. THAmericanpole E south may as well come in and be discovered. The and English are aft er it, and when both branches of the Anglo-Saxon race start out to do a thing there is nothing more to it. As Captain Robert F. Scott, the leader of the prospective British expedition, expressed it, he will stay two years if he does not discover the pole in one, will stay three years if he does not discover it in two, and added, "In fact, we shall jolly well stop there till the thing JS done' As for the American expedition, its commanding spirit will be Robert E. Peary, even though he is not to accom pany it in person. It is Peary who plans it, Peary who turned over to it the $10,000 given him in Xew York, Peary who donates it the use of the Roosevelt and Peary's companions in the discovery of the north pole who will man the expedition. Since Peary tried for the other end of the world for twenty-three years, it is unnecessary to say that the exploring party organ ized by him and animated by his spirit will also "jolly well stop there till the thing is done There have been few finer exam ples than that furnished by Command er Peary in this entire affair. His cor respondence with Captain Scott to de- BRITISH EXPEDITION'S LEADER, THE AMERICAN PARTY'S SHIP WITH HER CAPTAIN AND MAN WHO HAS BEEN FARTHEST SOUTH. termine if an American expedition would be acceptable to the British, who through the Shackleton and other explorations had established a prior claim in the antarctic field,' revealed the instincts of the sportsman and an honorable regard for the feelings of others. Peary's donation of his $10,- 000 gift and of the Roosevelt had a dramatic touch and exhibited unself ishness. This same unselfishness was displayed by his voluntary relinquish ment of the honor of leading the ex pedition. Belated Becognition. Those of us who criticised Mr. Peary for his attacks on Dr. Cook should now be the more ready to render tribute to the true discoverer of the north pole. While personally not for long deceived by the Cook claims, I, like the majority of other newspaper men who wrote on the subject, regarded Peary's stric tures on his rival as ungenerous and In bad taste. Subsequent events have to some extent justified him, or at least have shown his provocation. When one has worked twenty-three years for a certain thing and at last has attain ed it only to have some purveyor of fiction beat him to the cable office and claim the laurelswell, who wouldn't yell "Stop, thief?" The last heard of Dr. Cook he was in South America, but he was not looking for the south pole. He has doubtless had enough of the polar proposition to last him the rest of his natural life. The doctor seems to be yearning for obscurity. Why not let him have it? It is now Peary's turn. The house of representatives may not be willing to make him a rear admiral, but why should that disturb him? There am Each Expedition to Start Next Summer Practically at the Same Time and From Oppo site Sides of the Pole platoons of rear admirals, but only one pole discoverer. Who knows the names of six of our estimable rear admirals? Yet who in the circle of the nations has not heard of Peary? Some of these holders of toy titles and gilt shoulder straps get an inflated notion of such things. In the big world of real men and women what do they count for? What have they to do with the ages? So long as history lasts Peary's fame will last. What could a rear admiral's title add to him Bartlett Will Go. Captain Robert A. Bartlett, who com manded the Roosevelt in its trip to the arctic and went nearer the north pole than any white man except Peary, has already resigned a good job to take his old station in the trip to the other end of the world. Before he had sent in his resignation his possible con nection with the antarctic expedition was discussed with Commander Peary. "Will Bartlett go?" somebody asked. Peary paused in open mouthed as tonishment. "Will Bartlett go?" he repeated musingly, as if to make sure that he had heard aright. "Bartlett will go. Nothing but a ball and chain and the bars of a state or federal prison could possibly keep Bartlett from going." Some of the pictures of Captain mimm Bartlett look almost human, but there are others that have a positively terri fying aspect. I recall one in partic ular in which he has a pipe in his mouth that would cause a stampede of polar bears. If he looked like that at his Eskimo dog team it is no wonder that the Peary party made quick time to the pole. The dogs would cover thirty or forty miles a day merely to get away. The English-American race to the south pole will be a sporting event that will stir the world's blood. The two expeditions will start at opposite sides of the pole at practically the same time. Captain Scott will traverse the route already covered by Lieuten ant Shackleton. The Peary party will go In from Weddell sea over a course uncharted and unknown. The English expedition will have motors, Siberian ponies and dogs. The Americans will depend on dogs alone. While the rl Tairy is to be entirely friendly, it will nevertheless be keen and should arouse the sporting blood of the two nations as not even the yacht races, the Der bies, the tennis and polo matches and ther international contests have done. It is not at all impossible that the betting fraternity will get into the game and big stakes be placed on the event Commander Peary suggests that one exploring party might get to the pole only twenty-four hours ahead of the oth#r. which would be a closer race than that to the cable lines when Dr. Cook broke out of the north only a week ahead of himself. There will be no Cook finish to this affair, how ever. The example of the Brooklyn explorer will prevent others from claiming to have discovered any pole whatsoever without sworn affidavits. diagrams and proofs that would con vince the now skeptical University of Copenhagen. It will *be impossible, however, for the discoverer- of the south pole tQ 'Ijring on his Eskimos" for the reason that no human beings live on the antarctic continent. Pole on a High Plateau. The probability is that the south pole is on a plateau 10,000 feet in eleva tion and that both exploring parties will have an all land route. Shackle ton found land all the way in his journey and when he reached his far thest south at 111 miles from the goal said that powerful fieldglasses reveal ed a continuing plateau as far as he could see. His elevation was then about 10,000 feet. Because of the alti tude and for the reason that there is no sea water to modify the tempera ture the area surrounding the south pole is colder than that encountered oy arctic explorers. Mountains and glaciers also make the going in the antarctic difficult For all that, the discovery of the south pole should be less difiicult than was that of the northern end of the world. There are no open leads and no drifting ice floes, two of the obstacles that have de feated so many arctic explorers in their efforts to reach the north pole. The route to be followed by the American party leading in from Wed dell sea is also thought to be over the land, though next to nothing is actually known concerning it. A coast line has been discovered, and this is supposed to be the shore of the antarctic continent. It may, how ever, be only a shell, with open sea beyond it. Again, it may lead to high and practically inaccessible mountain ranges. This uncertainty as to what the Americans may encounter would put the odds in favor of the British, since they will follow for most of the distance the course al ready traversed by Lieutenant Shac kleton, just as Shackleton, in turn, kept close to the track made by Cap tain Scott in his first expedition of 1901-4 Two Polar Dashes In 1911. The Englishmen will go in from New Zealand and the Americans from Punta Arenas, on the southern ex tremity of South America. The start in each case will be made next sum mer. The seasons in the southern hemisphere are, of course, the exact reverse of ours, Christmas occurring in midsummer there and the 4th of July in. midwinter. It Is designed to go into winter quarters in 1911 anded to make the actual polar dashes dur ing the spring and summer of 1911-12 If successful the expeditions will then start home early in 1912. It is bare ly possible that news may be heard of one or both ventures before either reaches a cable station, as the British intend to take wireless apparatus and to establish wireless stations at their two bases, which will be approximate ly 500 miles apart It is not impossi ble that these wireless stations could be utilized for communication with the outside world, although the dis tance will be very great. Captain Robert Falson Scott, the leader of the British expedition, was born in 1868 and has been in the navy since 1882. He served in various ships, becoming successively lieutenant, com mander and captain, which last rank he has held since 1904. His first ant arctic expedition started in from Port Lyttleton, New Zealand, which will be the base of the new venture. Near the eightieth parallel a high ice bar rier was found, but a long shift was made, a pass discovered, and an ap proach was pushed toward the pole, which stopped a few hundred miles short of the record made by Lieuten ant Shackleton last year. It is not without interest that Shackleton gain ed his first antarctic experience as a member'of this first Scott expedition. It is hardly probable that he will ac company the next one, as he is now busy writing a book, but either next summer or later may lead an expedi tion of his own. He will shortly visit America, where he is to be signally honored. Why Shackleton Turned Back. Lieutenant Shackleton's account of the last days of his journey Is thrill ing, and as it describes conditions which will be met by the two expedi tions now forming I subjoin a few ex tracts: The blizzard had done its work, how ever, and we recognized that we had just about reached our limit We got up at 2 a. m. and at 4 a. m. were away for a final march south, taking with us nothing but food, instruments and the queen's flag, with a bamboo rod for a staff. Half running, half walking, we made that last march, and at 9 a. m. in latitude 88 degrees 23 minutes we hoisted the union jack. We could do no more, for to go farther meant abandoning all hope of get ting back to our depots. The pole, though only ninety-seven geo graphical miles away (111 statute miles), was Impossible for us to attain. Before us stretched the same white plain over which we had traveled for many days. Our powerful Goertz glasses showed no signs of land, and we could safely as sume that the geographical south pole was situated on this immense plateau, be tween 10,000 and 11,000 feet above sea level and certainly the coldest and one of the most stormy parts of the world. We took a photograph of the party, with the queen's flag blowing out in the ley wind that cut us to the bone, took possession of the plateau on behalf of his majesty and immediately began the march back to our camp, our faces once more turned north. The leader of the American expedi tion will probably not be announced for some time. The most likely men for the post are Borup and McMillan, both of whom accompanied Peary in his north pole dash. Whoever is in command, Robert E. Peary will be the actual head. Under his guidance and inspiration we have a right to hope that despite the handicaps against the Americans, they will win the race and that the first flag raised at the south pole, as at the north, win be the stars and stripes.
