The Ileason for Mack's jiig Silence.
Thirteen days after David K. Mack's
nomiualjgu by the republican conven

declined the nomination.
"Why the delay of 13 days?
It could not have taken Mr. Mack
13 daya to refuse a nomination which
lie never sought and which he had
never had any. intention of accepting.
'. The most probable reason for the de
lay of 13 days was to give 6. F. Berry
ample time in which" to effect a frame
up for a candidate of his choice.
To believe that Berry has not taken
advantage .of that delay of almost two
weeks, would be to question his schem
ing capacity as a politician. -
The effect of the 13 days' delay. is
to give the judicial committee an ex

Get the Facts.
The announcement that President
Taft insists upon an exhaustive, im
partial investigation into the. charges
made regarding huge land scandals in
Alaska is only what was to have been
expected in view of ,his past record
and known character.
Previous clashes between 'Forester
Pinchot and Secretary Ballinger over
the disposition of some of the public
domain in certain western states and
territories seem explicable on the
theory that these two officials have
honestly differed in their interpreta
tion of the law. With respect to
Alaska, the statement is made that
coal deposits of vast value have been
fraudulently allowed to pass into the
hands of individuals or corporations.
The president should get the facts,
and all the facts. If the allegations
are proved to be untrue, those impli
cated in them are . entitled to have
their falsity established. If there has
been deliberate crookedness on the
part of any officers of the government,
the guilty, individuals should not only
be dismissed in disgrace, but should
be relentlessly prosecuted while the
purloined land should be promptly re
turned to the public possession as a

Cook's Experience Is One
Which No Other Man Has

New York, Sept. 2. P.y his own
claims, which were put before th 1
world yesterday through the sleud-T
cable thread from the Shetland island
Iort of Lerwick. Dr. Frederick Albert
Cook of Brooklyn has indulged himself
in an experience such as no man has
had since time began.
More than kings and princes of thi

the bridge, found a new thing und?r

On that hour in April, l'jn'j. that lh:

out his sextant, and with mittond
fingers fixed the instrument on th?
north star, shining out of the arctic
night, h? found himself 'if the worl.l
will credit his statement at latitud?
'JO and longitude anything tie please 1.
Me found that by shifting the posi
tion of his feet on the tip of the world
he could throw himself across a spin
of .longitudinal lines that swiftest
train and steamer could not cover in
10 days. ''
Perhaps in a whimsical moment th's
Brooklyn explorer balanced himself on
the toe of one bearskin boot and
whirled from right to left. Presto! Ik;

Whatever may have been the tricks
lhat Cook played with the laws of the
geographers, and the astronomers,
whatever may have been the secrets
of science that he discovered on that
day when he caught, the nehr angle cf
the nortii star almost directly over his
head. must, yet be told more at length
by the explorer himself when once
more he is back in the nearer frontiM
of the world's civilization.

It was at a New P.nglaud summer re
sort, and "tt.it young man from Bos
ton" bad lic.'Mi there less than an hour
when he had his first view of Miss
Minnie Hai'don. Young men from
New ' York prd other places had ar
rived a week ahead of liiiu ai.d uttered
the same words, but as Paul Dillon
didn't know it he was not dismayed.
To fall in low properly with tho
handsomest girl at a summer resort
there should be a formal introduction,
and a formal introduction may he hard
to achieve under certain circumstances.
There must be a mutual acquaintance
to tiring it about. Miss Haddou's
mother was a widow and an invalid
a ud kept to herself nuistif the time.
Paul Dillon looked tli't 'crowd over
twice a day for sight of faces he knew,
but looked in vain. Four days passed,
and the hotel did 'mil take tire, the
mountain behind it didnot slide, down,
aud there was no strike of waiters to
give him an ' opportunity to play the
hero and present his card. Then he
decided to take. a smu iu the auto
which had beeu shipped up to him.
When undecided whTit to do iu a
case of love, trust to' the auto, it has
a hundred ossilililies.
Mr. Dillou had driven fifteen miles
aud stopped at a hotel to refresh him
self, wheu be was pleased and sur
prised to see Miss Iladtloii and an
other young woman drive up iu an
other auto. They had followed him
from the hotel. They alighted aud dis
appeared. By indirect information he
learned that Miss Haddou had brought
back the other young lady to her ho
tel and was to make the return trip
iu care of the chauffeur.
Iu the course of an hour Miss Had
dou reappeared aud after thirty or
forty goodbys to her girl friends took
a seat in the tonneau aud moved off.
Three minutes, litter Mr. Dillon was
traveling the same road. All went
well for five miles. He was follow
ing so closely that he could see that
the other inaehiuc was holding any
thing but a straight course. There
were wabbles to right and left to sig
nify that that tract on intemperance
that ho had seen the chauffeur reading
hadn't quite cured him of bis thirst
By aud by two things happened in
the same minute. The chauffeur sud
denly increased his speed, and a cow
suddenly started to cross the highway
iu front of a farmhouse.
The best mcchanicaj engineer could
not have planned things better. There
was a. whoon. a scream aud a smash,
aud theu an auto brought up against
a nU fencc nnd -ent thu spliutcr8 fly
Fate was with the young mau from
Bostou. He stopped his machine and
leaped out and over the dead cow and
the unconscious chauffeur lying on bis
back, aud his strong arms were extend
ed to the half fainting girl in the ton
neau. She fell into tbetu just as the
farmer came from the bouse with a
milk pail in his baud aud cried out:
"Now. by crickety. but this is a nice
state of affairs, ain't it! What in

"This auto struck your cow." brief

The things were handed over, the
fuddled chauffeur loaded iu like a bag

auto headed for the hotel. In the ex

principals had thought of uames. It
