ORo COOK IS
DEfENDED
Evidence He Climbed
Mt McKinley is
Furnished
New York Sept GThe opinions
of moat of the critics who have been
inclined to doubt Frederick A Cooks
claim to having discovered the North
Pole were based on his assertion that
he had ascended Mount McKinley an
assertion which Is now fortified If
not proven by Captain Joseph H Her
ron of the United States army who Is
more intimately acquainted with the
facts of the Mount McKinley expedi
tion than any one not actually con
cerned
rapt Herron who Is now adjutant of
the West Point Military Academy has
come actively to the defense of Dr
Cook and declares that after a most
searching Investigation he was able
to verify the Brooklyn explorers 1
claim that heclimbed the great moun 1I
tain I
Captain Herron Is tho young army
engineer who at the head of a small
expedition explored the Alaskan
mountains and discovered the most di
rect overland route to the Yukon gold
fields through Simpson Pass This
had the effect of opening the gold
fields to the commerce of the world
and has been rated as a remarkable
achievement
Captain Herron who Is the discov
erer of Mount Forager which ranks
next to Mount McKinley In that range I
was such an acknowledged authority
that his advice was sought by Dr
Cook when preparing for the McKin
ley expedition Dr Cook and Captain
Herron went over the maps together
and discussed every question connect I
ed with the attempt
After his return when his word was
In question Dr Cook had the strength
of Captain HerronH confirmation and
furnished data that convinced tho peo
ple that he spoke the truth when ho
said he had reached the summit
Brooklyn Is preparing a ra
tion on the return of Its distinguished
son from his conquest of the North
and as Dr Cook has shipped most of
hip tata containing his observations to
this country It Is probable that he
proposes to honor Brooklyn by sub
mitting to the world from there his
observations As it Is not yet known
just when the explorer will return
the arrangements for his reception
are not definite but In a general wa
It is proposed to make his return a
triumph
The data and Instruments with
I which the observations were made be
fore and after reaching the North
Pole are now on the way to this city
in the custody of Harry Whitney the
Brooklyn frlond Oi Dr Cook to whom
they were given when tho explorer
returned to Greenland From this fact
It Is apparent that Dr Coot proposes to
submit hiD proofs to a scientific jury
of Americans familiar with polar ex
ploration
In Copenhagen Dr Cook was re
quested to submit his data as a num
ber of scientists had declared an ac
curate astronomer and geographer

When a Lion Springs at I

Plttsburg Sept Springing at the I
i
child as It did when it killed three
men and one woman Conja the most
feared lion at tho Highland park zoo
yesterday caused wild excitement
when Lena Meek three years old
placed her hand in the savage mon
sters cage and he jumped toward I
the babe Women In the crowd
watching the beast screamed several
I of them fainting and men turned I
their faces screamed fearing to see
the child mangled by the animal
Keepers of the zoo rushed to the
scone and stood stupefied for an In
stant when they saw the lion affec
tionately licking and pawlng tho hand
of the little girl However thcysoon
caught the child aud took her out of
harms way
A remarkable Instance of the affair I
Is that but a few moments before the
lion bad tried to break the heavy
bars of his cage In an effort to reach
another beast with whom ho had a I
quarrel
The animal several years ago killed
three of Its guards and while with a
side show at an amusement park

View of Discovery I
of the Pole 1
Washington Sept 6 It Is not fair
to doubt Dr Cooks word In the ab
benCe of any evidence whatever
against him
I This statement was made today by
Captain A G Wlnterhalter of the
navy chief of the hydrographic office
here in speaking of the doubt that
had been expressed In some quarters
as to whether Dr Cook actually had
ranched the North Pole
Not ono time In u hundred thous
and he said would Dr Cook be
able HticcGfisfully to fake astronoml
i cal observations
I I have had much experience In
j making observations and compilations
i from them and 1 speak from my own
knowledge in such matters Fake ob
servations from day to dny could not
possibly bo continued for any length
of tlmo without detection and why
not wait until access Is had to Dr
Cooks records and books These la
m opinion will clear up every ques
tion as to his actually having reached
the pole If thoy do not It will then
bo quito time enough to cast aspers
ions upon him
Professor Willis L 1 Moore the chief
of the weather bnreau acting secre
tary of agriculture and president of
the National Geographic society said
Never In the annals of Arctic ex
ploration bag there been any attempt
made to manufacture observations or
make a fictitious claim of achievement
and I am satisfied that there has been
nothing of this kind In the case of Dr
Cook
From all accounts of Dr Cooks
trip I feel satisfied of the authenticity
of the whole matter I see nothing
In tho narrative as told by Dr Conk
that should cause any apprehension
or doubt about the actual performamp
of the feat A mat j would have too
little to gain and too much to lose In
making any other than an authentic
claim because his famo would be of
too short duration and his Ignominy
would be everlasting
The National Geographic society
which has a membership oT about 10
000 has its headquarters here In tho
Hubbard Memorial building Henry
Gannett the geographer is vicepres
ident and Alexander Graham Bell the
inventor Is ono of its board of man
