Official confirmatoin of Dr. Frederick A. Cook's discovery of the North Pole was received at the State Department late this afternoon in a cablegram from Dr. Maurice Francis Egan, American minister at Copenhagen. Doctor Egan wires that the Danish govern ment has been advised by its in spector for North Greenland that Doctor Cook had returned from his long journey across the floes and ice mountains of the inner polar circle and and had reported the discovery of the pole, pre senting the necessary confirma tory data with records of his observations. It was the first official word received by this government regaring Doctor Cook's exploit. . Washington, Sept. 2. State Department officials are of the opinion that it is of little con sequence to the United State what lands Doctor Cook has dis covered on his way to the to the North Pole, so far as actual terri torial possession is concerned. It is recalled by the depart ment official that ever since 1828 American explorers in both the Arctic and Antarctic have dis covered vast areas of land to which no claims ever were made. Admiral Wilkes found in the Antarctic a territory of more than i one hundred thousand square miles in area and Doctor Kane made large discoveries in the Arctic, but no effort has ever been made by the United States to assert its right to them. Gene ral Greely some, years ago found lands which never before were known to exist. Many of the worlc 's greatest navigators have from time to time, made their discoveries, to which no claim was ever made. Theprincipal reason for this how ever, is said to be that these lands in every instance were al-J most inaccessible and absolutely of no value. The islands of Spitzbergen which were discovered many years ago. are still without a recognized owner. On the maps these island are designated as belonging to Russia, but its cliam if ever asserted, has never been recognized. These islands are not only accessible, but have de veloped some thriving industries and only within the last very few years has any effort been made to exercise over them any jurisdiction or outhority. Recently howevera conference has been suggested of representative of countries having interests in them to provide some sort of an administration for their govern ment. The United States probably will be "represented by reason of the fact that the only important coal mines in the territory are operated by American. As to the particular territory which Doctor Cook is said to have ' discovered the statement was made today that it was quite probable that these lands would be found to be an extension of the mainland of Greenland and if so they belong to Demmark At and rate it is extremely impro bable it is said that the United States would attempt to assert sovereignty over them.
