Press dispatches say ' that

North Pole. Cook claims to
have discovered it on April 21,
1908. ..Peary announces that he
discovered it and planted , the
Stars and Stripes on April , 6,
1909. Cook was more than a
year sending in' word of his dis
covery; Peary was able to an-
. nounce the ' discovery in five
months. Peary found no trace
of Cook's wanderings nor of
what he left at the Pole, but
Peary went by an entirely dif
ferent route. Both discoverers
are Americans. , k

Sverdrup announced that he
believed in the - .explorer's claim
when he read the early accounts
of the discovery. Yesterday he
was closeted with Cook for an
hour.' He went carefully over the

Then he announced his unquali

"I talked with Cook personally
again and I am' thoroughly
Convinced that he is honest in his
belief that he has discovered the

Cook's mind is the correctness of
his observations. - It they are

Cook Claims to have discovered the
pole April 21, 1908, and has been more .
than a year reaching civilization again,
Peary claims, to have discovered- the
pole April 1, this year, and has been
but five monts getting back to civiliza
tion. It appears that doubt of Coo&
comes in the speed with which he made
his dash to the pole in 1908, about 19 '
miles a day; while ; doubt of Perry
having been at the pole comes in the
speed with which he made the return
trip. . '
