Wickersham Says Question of
IF POLE IS INHABITED
Attornej-General Would Defend
Flag at Earth's Summit Truth
of Cook's Story Affirmed
by Chief Geographer.
NEW YORK, Sept. I. That the flag
planted by Dr. Cook on the new Arctic
continent will be defended by the United
States was the opinion expressed by Attorney-General
Wickersham at Lawrence
Beach. L. I., his summer home, tonight.
"The Constitution will follow the flag
ff the new land discovered by Cook
proves to be of any value." said Mr.
The new territory may perhaps not
prove a very valuable acquisition, but If
human beings can live there, if there
re native races living there, a serious
question of citizenship will have to be
considered. However, before taking any
position In the matter 1 prefer to wait
for Information of a little more definite
Cyrus C. Adams, chief geographical ex
pert of the American Geographical So
' clety. said tonight that his examination
of Dr. Cook's narrative had ' convinced
him that the explorer's claims to the
discovery of the pole are genuine and
"If Is Inevitable." said Mr. Adams,
that the data which Dr. Cook will pres
ently submit to the scientific world will
be subjected to the closest scrutiny. No
sane man with experience in such mat
ters could hope for an Instant to produce
a false' log wlfh false astronomical and
magnetic observations for such a period
as was covered In this remarkable .trip
to the pole.
"The story of Dr. Cook's expedition as
It has reached us contains no Improbabili
ties. He found. In accordance with the
belief of experienced explorers, that once
beyond the great Ice ridges which stretch
for 100 miles out from fhe coast of north
ern seas the Ice Is smooth and clear and,
the road easy."
DON'T AXXEX ALL DISCOVKRF.D
Americans Hare Found New Conti
nents Near Both Polls.
WASHINGTON. Sept. 2 State De
partment officials belfeve It Is of little
consequence to the TTnited States what
lands Dr. Cook has discovered on his
way to the North Pole, so far as actual
territorial possession Is concerned.
It Is recalled by the Department offi
cials that ever since 18JS American ex
plorers In both the Arctic and Antarc
tic have discovered vast areaa of land
to which no claims ever were made.
An American named Wilkes found In the
Antarctic a land of more than 200.000
square miles In area, and Dr. Kane
made large discoveries in the Arctic,
but no effort has been made by the
United States to assert Its rights.
General Greeley some years ago lo
cated lands that never before were
known to exist.
Many of the world's greatest navi
gators have from time to time made
discoveries to which no claim was ever
made. The principal reason for this,
however. Is said to be that the lands
were almost Inaccessible and absolute
ly of no value.
As to the particular territory which
Dr. Cook Is said to have discovered. It
was asserted that it was quite prob
able teat these lands would be found
to "be an extension of the mainland of
Greenland, and, if so. they belong- to
Denmark. At any rate, it is extremely
Improbable. It Is said, that the United
States would attempt to assert sover
eignty over them.
ESKIMOS TRUST LIVES TO COOK
At First Refuse, Then Consent, to
Dash for Pole.
GOTHENBURG. Sweden. Sept. I.
Dr. Otto N. Nordenskjold. the explorer,
who has Just returned from an Arctic
voyage, describes an Interview he had
with Knud Rasmussen. the Danish
student, In Greenland,, who passed the
Winter with the Cape York Esqulmos
together with Dr. Cook. I
Rasmussen told Dr. Nordenskjold
that the Esqulmos at first absolutely
declined to follow Dr. Cook because of
the risk. At last some of the young
men declared themselves willing to
aid him in his attempt to reach the
pole, and at the moment of starting
several highly experienced men Joined
the party, saying they would not leave
their sons and would not forsake this
man who had trusted them.

E. Peary may be called on to answer
charges of having taken valuable fox

to Captain B. 8. Osborn. secretary of the

"There will be lots doing when Dr. Cook

"There will be a reception, of course,

Then, too. there will be another matter

Cook left at his supply station to help

Neither the President nor Secretary

CHICAGO, Sept. 2. (Special.) The
management of the Santa Fe Railroad
has about decided to put into operation
a new fast mall and express train to
run between Kansas City and Los
Angeles, with a view to capturing the
bulk of the Southern California mall.
This adds another speed war to that

Official Confirms Report.
This intention became known in
Western railway circles today and
caused great excitement. A conference
of competing lines was called, and,
after long discussion, E. O. McCormlck,
assistant traffic director of the Harrl
man lines, was delegated to find out
what plans the Santa Fe had in mind.
Mr. McCormlck and C. T. Nicholson,
vice-president of the Santa Fe, spent
the greater portion of the afternoon to
gether, but all that' could be learned
was that the new fast mail train prob
ably would be put on within a month.
After the conference Mr. Nicholson
admitted for publication that his com
pany was considering a new train
which would make a material cut in
the present running time of 60 hours
between Kansas City and Los Angeles.
The entire Southern California mall
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.
Santa Fe Once Had Monopoly.
The bulk of this mail comes from the
St. Louis gateway by the Missouri Pa
cific. The reweighing period for all the
territory west of the Missouri River and
west of St. Paul begins next February
and on this account every road In that
territory is urging the disposition of the
mails for the yearly period following the
10 days' weighing by the Government.
Formerly the Santa Fe carried the bulk
of the Southern California mail, but sev
eral 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
Kansas City Just after the arrival of the
Eastern mails. At that time the Santa
Fe was not In a position to change Its
schedule to wait for the malls, and per
mitted the Rock Island to take some of
the tonnage away from It.
It is known that the Rock Island and

LOS ANGELES, Cal., Sept. 2. (Spe

Court, handed down a decision' today
admitting to probate the will of the
late Robert Crawford Smith, who left
the greater part of his estate to asso
ciates of the last few years of his life,
with whom he had been interested as a
believer in the physical manifestations
of spirits. In the long court fight it
became known that a large part of the
will was dictated by spirits.
Mrs. Dora Barnett,'a medium, was
the chief beneficiary of the will. She
received a bequest of $10,000. Mrs.
Leotta Swilling, another alleged
medium, was willed $2000, and Miss
Lottie Livington, of Pasadena, a school
teacher, came in for a $5000 slice of
Heirs at law of the aged Mr. Smith

Smith was unduly influenced by his
spiritualistic friends, testimony tend
