Seeks to Have Congress Refuse to Honor Discoverer. Coming directly from New York today to block legislation looking to the recog nition of Commander Robert E. Peary by Congress, Evelyn Briggs Baldwin made the sensational statement that Congress should go slow, because he and other Arctic experts believe Dr. Took to have been the discoverer of the Pole. Mr. Baldwin represents theopyonenta of Commander Pearv and he comes armed with arguments to prove that Cook dis covered the Pole, despite that explorer's expressed uncertainty as to his feat. Though he does not deny that Peary approximately reached the Pole, he maintains that Cook got to the north ernmost point eleen months before. By quoting Commander Robert E. Peary's records to substantiate the rec ords of statements of Dr. Cook, Ex plorer Baldwin hopes to prove that Dr. Cook was the discoverer of the North Pole. Incidentally he preferred serious charges against Commander Peary, al leging that he had "faked" pictures and misrepresented the reasons why his men came home. Mr. Baldwin was four times a mem ber of Arctic expeditions In quest of the Pole. He was a member of the Peary expedition of 1893-91, was orean- tzer of the Baldwin-Zlegler expedition of 1901-02. went with the second Well- man expedition, which reached Franz Joseph's Land in 1S9S. and was a volun teer to accompany Andree in 1S97. The arguments advanced by Mr. Bald win are premised on the theory that foxes, deer, and other Arctic animals must be near land. He also bases his conclusions on observations made by both explorers regarding land ice. Ice packs, and the soundings reported by various explorers. Reasoning on this basis, he concludes that Dr. Cook reached a point approxi mately near the Pole eleven months be fore Commander Peary's arrival there. According to Mr. Baldwin, Dr. Cook must have followed closely In the line of Peary's trip, and he quotes from Peary's "The North Pole" to sub stantiate these statements.
