New York, Sept. 7.—The following
dispatch has been received here from
Indian Harbor, via Cape Ray, N. F..
from Robert E. Peary:
"Stars and Striyes nailed to North
pole."
The saihe telegWUB
fcss
b^en re­
ceived by the Reuter Telegram com
pany of London.
This startling and laconic message,
flashed from the coast of Labrador to
New York and thence to the four
corners of the globe, at the moment
when Dr. Cook is being acclaimed by
the crowned heads of Europe and by
the world at large as the discoverer o
the North pole, adds a remarkable
chapter to the study of an achieve

ROBERT E. PEARY.
IP to the highest pitch of interest
since Sept. 1, when Dr. Cook's claim
to having reached the top of tlu
world was first telegraphed from the
Shetland islands.
Two explorers, Br. Frederick A.
Oook and Commar.der Robert E.
Peary, both Americans, are in the
Arctic seeking the goal of centuries
the North pole, whose attainment has
at times seemed beyond the reach of
man. Doth are determined and cour
ageous and both leave expressing the
belief that their efforts will be
crowned with succcess. Feary is well
known to both scientists and the gen
eral public as a persistent striver for
the honors of "farthest north." Dr.
Cook, on the other hand, has held the
public attention to a lesser degree.
He made his departure quietly and lii'-s
purpose was hardly known other tli i
to those who are keenly interested in
polar research. Then, suddenly and
with no word of warning, a steamer
touches at Lerwick and Dr. Cook's
claim to having succeeded where ex
pedition after expedition of the hardi
est explorers of the world had failed
is made known. Three days later Dr.
Cook arrived at Copenhagen and was
given a welcome to an explorer uu
precedented in history.
Five days after the receipt of the
Lerwick message, almc-st to the hour,
eoxoes the sensational statement, from
Indian Harbor that Commander Peary
also has been successful on his third
expedition to the coveted goal.
One point of supreme importance in
Peary's report of his succeeds is that
the statement must remain absolutely
unchallenged, because Peary undoubt
edly is able to confirm his statements
by creditable white witnesses who
mMe up the personnel of MB pwtjr.
PLEASING TO HIS FRIENDS
Report That Peary Had Reached the
North Pole.
Washington, Sept.7 —"That dispatch
from Peary moans that he has finally
achieved what he has so lonR boen
after," said Henry Gannett, an eld
friend of Peary's and vice presid* nt
of the National Geographical society.
"I am awfully glad that he has got
ten to the North pole, whether he was
the flrit to reach there or not. He
certainly worked hard enough to get
there. Such a dispatch from Peary
would signify only hits own aehlevt
Blent, even if Co6k was there first. I
always thought that Peary had the
best chance of all of thti men who
have gone out in the effort to reach
the North pole. He was fitted by long
experience and by his wel' known
high qualities. I repeat, I am awfully
glad that Peary has reched the pole."
Peary is personally very popular
With the scientists in Washington and
a movement will be launched at once
to give him a rousing reception when
he get3 back to this country.
MELVILLE BELIEVES PEARY
Says Latter Was Welt Equipped for
Reaching Pole.
Philadelphia, Sept. 7.—Admiral Mel
ville, when informed of the text of
the Associated Press dispatch from
Lieutenant Peary, said: "If Peary
has telegraphed the Associated Press
that he has found the pole I believe it
and say bully for hira."
"Good for Peary," continued the ad
miral, as a smile crossed his face.
'I have known Peary personally for a
long time and as he was well equip
ped for an expedition I think he had
at least as much chance as Dr. Cook
had for discovering the pole. Peary
was within 200 miles of the pole in
his last expedition and was prevented
from going there by the opening of
the ice packs. He has been gone long
enough to have reached there.
"It was the crazy dispatches pur
porting to have come from Dr. Cook
about the conditions he found then
and other things that caused a doubt
in my mind about Cook having found
the pole. The later dispatches are
more sane and are more favorable t')
Dr. Cook."
SECOND MESSAGE RECEIVED
Coidm In Cipher and Is Undoubted!/
From Peary.
New York, Sept. 7 —A telegram was
received here from Lieutenant Peary
for Herbert L. Bridgman. secretary of
the Peary Arctic club of America. It
read as follows:
'Pole reached. RooBevelt safe."
The telegram to Mr. Bridgruan was
Bent in cipher. The cipher used was
a private one and indicates clearly
that the dispatch was sent by Com
mander Peary.
St. Johns, N. F., Sept. 7.—Command
er Peary has Just telegraphed the gov
ernor of Newfoundland by wireless
from Indian Harbor, Labrador, an
nouncing he has discovered the
North pole and congratulating New
foundland on its par^ in this discov
ery, seeing that the captain and crew
of Peary's steamer tm Newfound
landers.
NO EVIDENCE AGAINST HIM
Naval Officcer Says it Is Not Fair to
Doubt Cook's Word.
Washington, Sept. 7.—"It is not fair
to doubt Dr. Cook's word in the ab
sence of any evidence whatever
against him."
This statement was made by Cap
tain A. G. Winterhnlter of the navy,
chief of the hy.drographic office here
in speaking of the doubt that had
been expressed in some quarters as to
whether Dr. Cook actually had
reached the North pole. "Not one
time in a hundred thousand," he said,
"would Dr. Oook be able successfully
to fake astronomical observations
have had much experience in making
observations and compilations from
them and I speak from my own
knowledge in such matters. Fake ob
serrations from day to day couid not
possibly be continued for any length
of time without detection and why not
wait until access is had to Dr. Cook s
records and books? These, in my
opinion, will clear up every question
as tc his actually having reached the
pole. If they do not It will then be
quite time enough to cast aspersion
upon him." _____
DR. COOK IS CONGRATULATED
German Societies Recognize Ameri
can's Achievement.
Berlin, Sept. 7.—Two of the leading
societies of German geographers, the
Berlin and the Ha:nburg associations
have congratulated Dr. Cook on his
discovery of the North pole. The
managing committees of each society
met and decided duly upon this recog
nition. The Berlin committee ex
pressed the opinion that it had no
right to withhold its acknowledgment
from an honorable and experienced
explorer such as Dr. Cook and it sent
its congratulations glrdly. In doing
this, however, the committee does not
consider that it formally accepts ev
