Up to the present time, however. th»re has been no official request for such action. NO REPORT TO SURVEY REQUIRED. Commander Peary. while missioned to Snake certain observations for the Coast and Cieodetic Survey, is not required to submit a report It that hureau. He will undoubtedly ' submit the results of the soundings and observa tions of tidal action to the survey hut the eu jwrintendent of the survey l.an no power to require a full report. This win probably be made by peary to the Peary Arctic Club, which financed the expedition. As Dr. Cook has no official connection with «h# government as regards polar exploration, th* question of arbitration by the Coast and «J«odetic Survey rests entirely with the two ex plorers. iTh* member? si the National Geographic Be ciety watching with intense interest the progress of the stories of the Peary : nd Cook expeditions to the North Pole. Both Commander Peary and Dr. Cook are members of the 6o elety.

COOK GAINS FRIEXDS. Interest in Commander's Story Over shadowed by Controversy. Interest In Commander Peary's detailed account of his progress to the North Pole was overshad owed again yesterday by the controversy us to whether Peary or Dr. Cook was the. first to reach the pole. The naval officer's reiteration of the Brooklyn physician's untrustworthlness, as ex pressed In his dispatch from Battle Harbor, dated on Friday, served only to stir up the debate. Commander Peary* statement said: "Dr. Cook has not b*«n at the pole en April 21. 190$. or at any other time. He has simply handed the public a gold brick." As a result of this those who, have consistently asserted their belief in Dr. cook were more vigorous In their support of him. Men In terested in polar exploration who have tried to remain neutral were inclined to think that Com mander Peary had made a grave mistake in hasten ing to denounce his rival without producing proof of his assertions at the same time. On the whole, the latest dispatch from Com mander Peary branding Dr. Cook's story as a fabri cation appeared to have turned public sentiment in favor of the doctor. Even Peary's friends T\ere chagrined that be had let his Indignation overcome his common sense, as one man put it. While they could account readily for the feeling which prompted him to send such a message, they felt that the general public would not be so likely to condone the apparently ungenerous attack on a rival. Members of the Arctic Club of America, who have been preparing to f»te Dr. Cook on his arrival in New York next week went right ahead with their arrangements. Dr. Ronwell O. Stebbine. chairman of the executive committee of the club, had a con ference with Mrs. Cook last evening, at which the date for the club's dinner for the explorer was set for Thursday evening. September 23. UTS. Cook promised to use all her Influence to pet her hus band tp accept the invitation for the dinner, which promises to be a far more elaborate affair than at first planned. Captain Bradley S Oshon. secretary of the club, continued to receive applications bath for the din ner and for tickets on the steamboat, which will be chartered to take Dr. Cook's friends down the bay to meet the Okar 11. Bo fast are the applica tions pouring in that Captain Osbon said the club easily could till three excursion steamers. Brook lyn neighbors of Dr. Cook have asked that two hundred tickets be reserved for them. The Brook lyn people want to take Dr. Cook off the liner at Quarantine and make a triumphal sea and land procession of It to his home In BusßWtek avenue. Captain Ofbon received many letters yesterday from persons In various parts of the United States expressing their belief In Dr. Cook. Sherburn M. Becker, the "Boy Mayor" of Milwaukee from 1904 to IS*'S. wrote from Atlantic City as follows: I'm with Dr. Cook first, last and all the time. Cook is a hero and a gentleman. Peary, if he reached the pol« after Dr. Cook. Is no greater than any one else who might do the same tiling. Samuel S. Whitehouse, once a candidate for the Supreme Court bench in Kings County, wrote: 1 believe Dr. Cook to be the real hero of the North Pole. Peary, from his dispatches, if they be true. Is acting like an us and making himself ridiculous before, the whole world. "While I believe Peary may have reached the Dole," Captain Ofbon said, "his dispatches simply confirm the opinion I formed from those he first sent attacking Dr. Cook— that Is, he is certainly fast approaching the height of Idiocy." J. Knowles Hare, another member of the club, paid: "Captain Osbon's statement expresses my sentiments." Dr. Stehbins. when asked what he thought of Peary's "gold brick" dispatch, said: "I don't think Peary has any more proof about cook's failure to reach the pole than he had at first. In fact, the chances for his making good his assertions are lewtenlng every day. and confidence in Dr. Cooks story is steadily Increasing." At the office of R L Bridgmsn, In Brooklyn. Hie following dlepatch from Indian Harbor was re ceived: The ftoosevelt will remain here three or four days coaling. Expect to reach Sydney about the loth. Have one hundred walrus skins on board for the cluh. Your letters per whaler and the Jeanie received. You are the logical candidate tor the polar commission. PEAR*. From the last sentence it was supposed that Peary would recommend to the government that a commission be appointed to determine the terri torial (supervision over the pole. Mrs Frederick A. Cook. who has refused to make any statement for publication on her hus band's report that he reached the North Pole ahead of Commander Peary, consented last night, through a friend, to account for her silence. '•I believe In my husband," she said, "and there the matter ends for me. I do not belong in tills controversy, and I have feared that if I talked at all. no matter how guardedly. I should b» dragged into It willy-nilly. Then there would be denials and counter denUls. and I should never get clear. For this reason I have, paid and shall Bay nothing whatever beyond the bare affirmation that I believe my husband." PEARY TO MRS. MARVIX.

French Scientist ft Xot Inclined to Discuss the Rival Cases. [By CaN* to Th« Tribunal Paris. Sept. 11.— French scientists suspend their Judgment In the controversy «n the ground that neither Dr. Cook nor Commander Peary has yet produced scientific or legal evidence that lie reached the North Pole. The question If regarded here as subjudice. and it is felt that it would be unfair and altogether premature to express opinions which, in the absence of astro nomical records and facts, could only be guess ■work. No one. however, doubts the good faitli of both Cook and Peary, and as Louis Liard, vice-rector of the Academy of Paris and Mem ber of the Institute, point* out. both claimants should be credited until their evidence has been scrutinised by s^me impartial Jury of scientific men. who alon« are competent to pronounce judgment. If. Liard hopes that both Cook and Peary have been able to take photographs of the stars, which could readily be verified by astron omers, thereby furnishing conclusive proof of the exact point where the photographer stood at the precise moment of taking the photographs. Alfred Crolset, dean or" the faculty of letters of the University of Paris, also inclines to the belief that both explorers have reached the pole, and. like his colleagues, awaits anxiously accu rate, detailed evidence. He says that the un certain and contradictory figures and apparent flaws In the statement of both Cook and of P^ary and their vague assertions may he due to hasty Writing or to errors in telegraphic transmission, and will no doubt be made ciear under a final p<Mentifi> crosn-«»xamtnation Maurice Loir, the French naval expert, at taches importance to the fact that even th« location of th*> pole ag given by Cook may be two, three or even five miles distant from the Peary North Pole. The point calculated by the best sextants user! by naviatlng officers, such as the two explorers probably had with them, are Incapable of the absolute accuracy that can he obtained only by the delicate instruments of pre cision used in astronomical observatories. Pome of to-day's newspapers doubt whether either explorer reached the North Pole. The "Eclair." for instance, says that Commander Peary is as fully as obscure and sensational as is Dr. Cook, and lays stress on «he likelihood of the personal errors of a man taking observations under the difficult conditions of the Polar regions Consequently, the results can at the best be only approximate, so that, notwith standing the strict good faith of the two claim ants, it may eventually turn out that the quar rel may take Its place aloneside the problem of the Man in the Iron Mask, the Queen's neok lace affair or the alleged escape of the Dauphin.

Laughter and Regret Over Squabble Between Explorers. [By French Cable to The Tribune.] London, Sept. 11.— The commonest English comment on polar polemics is that as soon as Americans do something really great they spoil it by getting into personal squabble and abus ing each other. There was hearty admiration for Dr. Cook and Commander Peary in turn when they reported the success of their hazard ous and difficult conquest of nature in the high est latitudes, but Englishmen are now laughing outright over the wrangle between the two ex plorers, precisely as they smiled over the naval feuds arising out of the victory off Santiago. Americans residing abroad, instead of receiv ing congratulations from foreigners over the heroic exploits of their countrymen, are sub jected to good natured chaff over the bad man ners of their heroes and -the vagaries of news paper partisanship in a matter requiring scien tific investigation and impartial judgment. Dispatches from America state that English opinion Is wholly on the side of Peary, and that Cook is generally condemned ax an impost This is sheer nonsense. Commander Peary is known here and liked by scientific men, while Dr. Cook can only be taken at his own word until his records are recovered and his proof? submitted to experts of high authority. There is. however, unmistakable sympathy for Dr. Cook, as the under dog. and this is coupled with regret that Peary, instead of reporting his own exploits, attacked his rival in a savage way and sought to prejudice the world against him. A wag remarks that while the pole has bet found without doubt by one American or an other, the first use of it lias been to hang up soiled linen on it in place of the flag. I. N. F. [By Th« Associated I*ress.l # London, Sept. 11.— The Cook-Peary controversy nan for the moment practically been dropped from the editorial columns of the London newspapers. and the only comment appearing this afternoon is a paragraph In "The Pall Mall Gazette." which says: Commander Peary'a story bean the impress of reality, and in a way it contrasts vividly with the unconvincing narrative of his rival. After readina Peirys nan-Hive, one can only feel that if r>r Cook is really telling the truth as honestly as Com mander Pei«ry.; hi* is singularly unfortunate in his manner of telling it. The claims and the counter claimr of the rival explorers, however, have prominence on the news papes. and are discussed keenly wherever men and women congregate. There is a general disposition, however, ■<■> awr-lt Dr. Cook's promised disclosure of hlc reonda ami evidence before pas*in:r further judgment. Berlin. Sept. 11.— The nmn that Commander Peary slm was unaccompanied by whit, observers when he reached the geographical point which he took to be the pole, has started the discussion afresh regarding riie claims of Peary and Cook. German geographers, such as Gravelitu, lWltnann, Pleglin, ioermg and Friedrichsen. have been dis posed rheraghoui to believe the word of i, th Cook and Peary as th^y had no reason to doubt the «-'i entific competence or sincerity of either explorer.

Meet me." •This message from Commander Robert E. Peary was received to-day at the Sydney Hotel by Mrs. Peary, who is waiting for the return of her husband from the north. The explorer's message was sent from Battle Harbor. Labra dor, where he is waiting, and was addressed to his wife at Eagle Island. Maine, her summer home, which she left on Thursday. It was inter cepted at Brunswick, however, and forwarded to her here, and Is the first definite word as to when he will arrive in this city. As the hours before she will again greet her husband on his return from the north grow fewer in number they seem to grow longer to Mrs. Peary, and to make them pas* more quickly John Kehl. American Consul here, and his wife have been doing all in their power. To this end an informal reception was given by Mrs. Kehl to Mrs. Peary and her daughter. Marie, to-day at the Kehl home. No. 59 Park street. Arrangements have been made for Miss Prary, Herbert L Bridgman and Consul Kehl to go down the bay to meet the returning explorer on the cable ship Tynan, which has been placed at the disposal of the newspaper correspondents by William Fugsley. Minister of Public Works for the Dominion of Canada. It has been arranged that Miss •Peary shall be first to board the Roosevelt, and have a. moment with her father before he sees the correspondents and repre sentatives of the Peary Arctic Club. The tug Douglas Thomas, chartered by The Associated Press, left here last night with a party of correspondents on board for Battle Harbor. It will take about two days to make the trip. Mrs. Peary and her party, accompanied by the visiting newspaper men, went to the steel plant here this morning and this afternoon took an automobile drive about the city. Nothing additional was received here to-day concerning the movements of Commander Peary at Labrador, and if ie now accepted that lie will remain at Battle Harbor until he gets his dis patches through. The committee having the reception arrange ments in hand has about completed its work.
