Santa Fe Will Put Fast Train on Run
to Coast.
Chicago, Sept 4. The management
of the Santa Fe railroad has about de
cided to put into operation a new fast
mail and express train to run between
Kansas City and. Los Angeles, with a
view to capturing the bulk of the
Southern California mail.
This adds another speed war to that
recently declared by the Hill roads in
the mail, express and passenger traffic
to the Pacific coast, affecting a differ
ent teritory between the East and Cal
The entire Southern California mail
is involved in the move, and this is
said to bring about $1,250,000 annual
revenue to the railroads. The Santa
Fe and Rock Island, in connection
with the Southern Pacific, now have
this business about equally divided.
The bulk of this mail comes from
the St. Louis gateway by the Missouri
Pacific. The reweighing period for all
the territory west of the Missouri river
and west of St Paul begins next Feb
ruary and on this account every road
in that territory is urging the disposi
tion of the mails for the yearly period
following the'10 days' weighing by the
government. Formerly the Santa e
carried the bulk of the Southern Cali
fornia mail, but several years ago the
Missouri Pacific put on a fast train
which captured the mail out of St.
Louis and the Rock Island put on its
Golden State Limited, which left Kan
sbb City just after the arrival of the
Eastern mails. At that time trie oan-
ta Fe was not in a position to change
its schedule to wait for the mails.

. Thus declares Dr. Frederick A. Cook
in a signed statement this morning in
the Paris edition of the New York
Tbe ttement which is
dated "Hans Egede, Lerwick, Wednes
day," continues:
"A new highway with an interesting
"rip of animated nature has been ex
plored and big game haunts located,
which will delight sportsmen and ex
tend the Eaquimo horizon.
"Land has been discovered on which
rest the earth's northernmost rocks.
A triangle of 30,000 square miles has
been cut out of the terrestrial un
known. "The expedition was the outcome of
a summer cruise in the Arctic seas on
the schooner Bradley, which arrived at
the limits of navigation in Smith sound
late in August 1907. Here conditions
were found favorable for launching a
venture to the pole. J. R. Bradley
liberally supplied from his vessel suit
able provisions for local use. My own
equipment for emergencies served well
for every purpose in the Arctics.
"At sunrise of 1908 February 19
the main expedition embarked on its
voyage to the pole. It consisted of 11
men and 103 dogs, drawing 11 heavily
laden sledges. The expedition left the
Greenland shore and pushed westward
over the troubled ice of Smith sound.
The gloom of the long night was
relieved only by a few hours of day
light The chill of the winter was
felt at its worst As we crossed the
heights of Ellsmere sound to the Pa
cific slope, the temperature sank to
minus 83 centigrade. Several dogs
were frozen and the men suffered se
verely, but we soon found tbe rame
trails, along which the way was easy.
"There was an unknown line 460
miles away which was our goal. We
made encouraging progress. A big
lead, which separated tbe land from
the ice of the central pack was crossed
with little delay.
"We advanced steadily over the
monotony of moving sea ice and now
found ourselves beyond the range of all
life neither footprints of bears nor
the blowholes of seals were detected.
Even the microscopic creatures of tbe
deep were no longer under us.
"Thus, day after day, our weary legs
spread over great distances. Incidents
and positions were recorded, but ad
venture was promptly forgotten in the
next day's efforts. The night of April
7 was made more notable by the swing
ing of the sun at midnight over tbe
northern ice. Sunburns and frostbites
now were recorded on the same day,
but the double day's glitter infused
quite an incentive into one's life of
"We were now about 200 miles from
the pole and sledge loads were reduced.
One dog alter another went into the
stomachs of the hungry survivors, until
the teams were considerably diminish
ed in number, but there seemed to re
main a Bofficient balance for man and
brute to push along into the heart of
the mystery to which we had set our
"On April 21 we had reached 89 de
grees 69 minutes 46 seconds. The pole
was in sight We covered the remain
ing 14 seconds and made a few final
observations. I told Etukishook and
Ahwtslsh, the accompanying Eskimos,
that we had reached tbe 'great nail.'
Everywhere we turned was south.
With a single step we could pass from
one side of tbe earth to the other; from
midday to midnight At last the flag
floated to the breezes at the pole. It
was April 21, 1908. The temperature
was minus 38 centigrade ; barometer
29.83; latitude, 90; as for longitude,
it was nothing, as it was but a word.
"Although crazy with joy, our spirits
began to undergo a feeling of weari
ness. Next day, after taking all our
observations, a sentiment of intense
solitude penetrated us while we looked
at the horizon. Was it possible that
this desolate region, without a patch
of earth, had aroused the ambition of
so many men for so many centuries?
There was no ground, only an immen
sity of dazzling white snow, no living
being, no point to break the monotony.
"On April 23 we started on our re
Scientific Value is High.

ish association for the advancement of
science at its national meeting showed
great interest in the report that Dr.
Cook had reached the North Pole. Col

the expedition would be of the highest
scientific value if scientific observations
were made by qualified men. C. H.
Chisholm, professor of geography at
Edinburgh university, said magnetic
nhnarvntions that could be made at the
pole would likely be among the most
valuable results oi ine aay.

White Steamers Use Kerosene as Fuel
The irot l:it rcatlng announce-
ment ever made In connection with
the automobile In.luttry was un-
ioubU'dly that nmde a month or two
ago to the effect mat the new models
of the White Steam Cars could be run
on kerosene, or coal oil. Instead of
gasoline Everyone at once recog
nized that the use of the new fuel
would add materially to the advan
tages wfcloh the White already pos
sessed over other types of cara.
There were some people, however,
who were sceptical as to whether or
not the new fuel could be used with
complete succers and, therefore, the
makers of the White Car. the White
Company, of Cleveland, Ohio, deter
mined to make a public demonstra
tion of the new fuel In the 1909 Glid
den Tour.
From the standpoint of the public,
no test more satisfactory could have
been selected. First of all. the dis
tance covered on the Glldden Tour,
from Detroit to Denver aud thence to
Kansas City, was 2650 miles. This
was certainly more than sufficient to
bring out any weaknesses, if such bad
existed. Still more Importaat was
the fact that the car was at all times
while on the road under the supervi
sion of observers, named by those
who entered other contesting cars.
Therefore, It would have been Impos
sible for the driver of the White to
have even tightened a bolt without
the fact being noted and a penalty In
flicted. At night the cars were
guarded by Plnkerton detectives and
could not be approached by any on.

The complete success of the now
fuel while on this 2650-mile nubile
test and the advantages calned
through its use were well described
In the following dispatch which the
correspondent of the New York Sun
sent to his paper at tho conclusion of
the tour:
"A feature of the tour which wns
watched with special Interest was
that the White Steamer used kero
sene, or "coal oil,' as fuel Instead of
gasoline. The new fuel worked
splendidly throughout the 2650-mlle
Journey, and all claims mado In Its
behalf were fully proven. First of
all, as regards cheapness, the White
driver secured kerosene all along the
route from 6 cents to 10 cents cheap
er per gnllon than was paid for gaso
lene. Secondly, the new fuel wns
handled without any precautions, and
It was not unusunl to see kerosene
being poured Into the fuel tank while
the crew of the car and an Interested
crowd stood by with lighted cigars
and cigarettes. At the finish of the
tour, the White was the only car per
mitted by the authorities to enter
Convention Hall, where the technical
examination took place, without
draining Its fuel tank. Thirdly, the
new fuel proved to be absolutely
without smoke or smell. Fourthly,
kerosene could be purchased at what
ever part of the route was most con
venient, and not once during the trip
through the ten States of the Middle
West was there found a grocery store
where kerosene was not readily and
cheaply obtainable. Finally, the
