EXPLORER ANDRE AND
MEN STARED-TO DEATH
The people of Oregon Cit' lv
a decisive vote hits debided to
maintain the historic home of
I)r. John McLouglilin as a pub
lie monument to his gieat work
111 the pioneer days ot this stnte
This is the right spirit. Toi
often the outward evidences of
bur early pioneers are destroy
ed ia the march of progress, and
their remembrance is only Heel
ing and visionary. This niove
. ment of the Oregon City people
will be a lasting tribute to the
memory of Dr. McLoughlin.
tit COOK DISCREDITED
"The darkness deepens'
hbout Dr. Cook. Men having
actual knowledge of Arctic "con
ditions have believed in him
Jjut little. Pew in New York
,or in London have had faith in
him at all. It is the common
opinion that his stories, both as
.to Mt. McKiuley and thejourney
to the Pole, are fabrications.
New incidents, seemingly con
firming this judgment, are con
tinually coming to light. Two
men appear who" confess the'
were principals iu the fabrica
tion of his astronomical and
other observations for submis
sion to the University of Oopen-
. iagen. ,
. It must be admitted that these
men are not, themselves, ad
mirable characters, since thet
. .first helped forward a fraud, and
afterward s--not getting the
mdney promised them exposed
it. But the proofs they submit,
when examined by competent
persons, will tell; and then they
,may be dropped out of the ac
count. . It its all but incredible that
any man should attempt a fab
Tication of this description.
.Even yetj it is well to wait for
"the final judgment of those com
petent to express an opinion on
the date and details furnished
Dr. Cook., if they. are .actually;
fraudulent, no ingenuity can i
tliseuiee thert, or protect him
from the scorn, of the tworld. fl
These statements by men wholi
profess to haVe made up Cook'd
"calculations" for .him, followl
hard upon the remarks by Pro
fessor It. C. Parker, of Columbia
University, on Cook's alleged
ascent ot Mt. McKinley. Pro
fessor Parker, accompanied Dr.
Cook on. the Mt., McKinley ex
pedition, and 1 declare it impos-
si bile to believe that Cook had
f reached the summit. Cook, he
fiaj'S, "knew nothing df moun
stain climbing, had no scientific
training, and seemed to realize!
Ms total incompetence for such
work." It appearing impossi
ble to reach the fop of the
..mountain that year, Professor'
Parker returned, and Cook re
mained behindy to "hunta little,"
as he said ana to . "look over
some of the nearest glaciers."
Parker's analysis of Cook's
statements leaves "the explorer.
in a pitiful, position. By his
barometers, Cook saye, he found
the height of the. mountain to-
be 20,300 feet, But the highest
barometer scale wq had'," says
Parker, "was only,28,000 feet."
Parker knewtJbecause he Was,
in fact, ifl3ha?ge ,p-the expedi
tion. As to -Cook's qualifica
tions, Parker nay's that he very
muoh doubts whether, if placed
in the streets of New York, with
Vthe best instruments made, J)r.
f)ook "could calculate his iati-

-Bishon - Pascal, ' who has
charge of the diocese of Princ
Albei t, which embraces the sub
Aiciic country to the North o
this oil', bring? back with him
a story of the finding of traces
of a balloon in which S. A. An
dre, Swedish explorer, attempt
ed to drift across to the North
One of Bishop Pascal's mis
sionaries reported to him that
while working among the iEski
tii OS of the Arctic region, he me
a tribe which had some of the
plunder with them. These na
tives had in their possession a
quantity of rope of a quality
which they could not get in a
barter from ships which enter
the Arctic Sea.
When questioned, the IJski
mos told that many years be
fore they had come across two
white men who came down out
of the sky in a "white house."
These men had afterward starv
ed to death, and the natives had
seized upon the balloon, the
cordage of which they had con
verted to their uses.
Bishop Pascal instructed the
missionary to return ana get
