Is Banqueted by Arctic Club Doesnt
Expect to Have His Reply to
Peary Ready for Months Says
Theres Glory Enough for All
Portland MeA continuous ovation
greeted Commander Robert E Peary
from the moment he entered the
state at Vanceboro the eastern term
inal of the Maine Central railroad
until he reached his home the city of
Portland 1
During the Journey through eastern
Maine Commander Peary was cordial
and appreciative although ho ap
peared to be rather tired At every
station where the train stopped be
tween Vanceboro and Old Town there
was a crowd of cheering country folk
who seemed to appreciate tho fact
that it was the first few hours that
the commander was enjoying in his
own land with his own countrys flag
greeting him on every side
New York With Commander Rob
ert E Peary seeking indeterminate
seclusion at his Maine home and with
Dr Frederick A Cook fully answering
the most difficult questions of his
doubters it was expected that the
north pole controversy would be per
mitted to rest for a while but this
expectation Is probably shattered by a
dispatch from the train on which
Peary was speeding to his summer
home saying that he is preparing an
Indictment of 30 counts against Dr
Cook and that ho will publish these
categorical allegations very soon
At a banquet tendered to Dr Cook
Thursday evening by the Arctic Club
of America at the WaldorfAstoria
the Brooklyn explorer delivered a
speech In which after recounting tho
perils of those who have heretofore
attempted to make the trip to the
north pole said
Now gentlemen I appeal to yon as
explorers and as men Am I bound to
appeal to any man for a license to
look for the pole
Another criticism Is the charge of
our Insufficient equipment We have
met this You know that we had
every possible aid to success in sledge
traveling A big ship is no advantage
An army of white men who at best
are novices Is a distinct hindrance
while a cumbersome luxury of equip
ment is fatal to progress We chose
to live a life as simple as that of
Adam and we forced the strands of
human endurance to scientific limits
If you will reach the pole there Is
no other way
Now as to the excitement of the
press to force things of their own
picking from important records Into
print In reply to this I hate taken
the stand that I have already given
a tangible account of our Journey It i
is as complete as the preliminary re
ports of any previous explorer The
data the observations the records are
ot exactly tho same character Here
tofore such evidence has been taken
with faith and the complete record
was not expected to appear for years
whereas we agree to deliver all with
in a few months
Now gentlemen about the pole
We arrived April 21 1908 We die
covered new land along the one hun
dred and second meridian between I
the eightyfourth and the eightyfifth I
parallel Beyond this there was abso II
lutely no life and no land The Ice
was In large heavy fields with few
pressure lines Our observations were
sufficient to guarantee our claim
When taken in connection with tho
general record you do not require
this I can see that but this and all
the other records will come to you in
the duo courso of events
I cannot sit down without acknowl
edging to you and to the living arctic
explorers my debt of gratitude for
their valuable assistance The report
of this polar success has come with a
sudden force but in the present en
thusiasm we must not forget the fa
thers of the art of polar travel
There Is glory enough for all There
Is enough to go to tho graves of the
dead and to tho heads of the
living I

Down In Baltimore tncro has been
much trouble at the city hall Two
men have been arrested recently for
embezzlement and one of them frank
ly admits that his downfall came from
drink The whole condition of af

BO the mayor has determined to be 11
drastic in curing the evil He has
just Issued this statement i
Tho man who does work nt tho 1

This Baltimore case is not n spor

wisdom is epidemic It affects the
little shopkeeper and tho big manu
facturer Railroads are especially
stringent Some of the big lines go
so for that they discharge an em
ploye seen going Into n saloon or com
Ing from one The lives of too many
hang on tho clearheadedness of the
railway men and those In nuthorltyt
aru taking no risk Its too costly
Moreover business competition la
too keen nowadays for any firm to 1
give Its rival the odds by employing
Intemperate men The keen edge
of their ability to sell goods to IURko
contracts to be personally persuasive
Is blunted by drink
The men who make these order
and see that they are rigidly enforced
are not known as reformers They pro
glad Incidentally that they are help
ing the world to grow better but
their main purpose Is selfish If they
are high In office and llrmly clamped
there they may take their own pipe
and glass but even then It will not
