Contest Between England and
America That Is Expected to
Arouse the Sporting Blood of
the Whole World
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-
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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.
