Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 22, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta tlOHT M, V t LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 22.JMI. Peary Submits His Observations To National Geographical Society fc I Washington, Oct. "inander Robert E. Peary's proofs, re cord< and observations that he reach ed the North Pole April 6, 1909, were today" submitted to the National Geo graphical Society and the board of "management that body referred for examination and'' report to a sub-committee of experts compris- ing Henry Gannett, chief geographer of''the U. S. Geographical survey; Bear Admiral Colby il. Chester, U. S., and 0. H. Tittman, superintend- ent .of the U. S. coast and geodetic surveys. The society announced that the .only it now has to decide was whether Commander Peary reached' the .Pole on the date claimed. The experts designated by the society will hold their first meeting within a few "days. The scope of the investigation renders it probable that the enb-com- mittftft will not report its findings for several months, but when the report will be submitted to a meeting of the board of managers ol. the so- ciety. While the meeting was in pro- gress and shortly after the submis- sion of the Peary data, a messenger brought a cablegram from the Univer- sity of Copenhagen, regretting the University's inability to comply with the society's request that the institu- tion waive its first claim to Dr. F. K. 'ook's records. Professor Charles L. Moore, presi- dent of the National Geographic So- declared subsequent to the board meeting that the society believed Commander Peary'.s claim that he cached the Pole should be passed j upon without further delay. "The society is ready to make sim-j lar examinations of Dr. Cook's orig- inal observations- and field Professor Moore said, "but as he pro mised to send them to the Univer of Copenhagen and the society will not have opportunity of see- ing them for probably some months, it did hot seem fair to defer action on Commander Peary's observations until Dr. Cook's .papers were receiv- ed." CANADIANS TREAT CHILDREN WELL London, Oct. Mac- Namara, speaking at Portsmouth yes- terday with regard to children under the poor law, that while he was at local government board, he read with liveliest satisfaction of the Can- jdian inspector's reports about ohil- Iren who had been emigrated to the Dominion. He had been greatly struck with the kindness which Can- adians treated them, and he could visli nothing better than that system of eciigration as carried out today to Canada should be widely extended in cases of strong, healthy children. i t i Committee Has Been Appointed To SettU'v Worth Pole Distinguished Members v Washington, Oct. even doz- eu members of World Wide-standing constitute the research committee o the National Geographical Society, which is to pass on the merits of the North Pole controversy.
