PEARYvs. COOK CONTROVERSY Likely to Be Sensational in Extreme Skeptical of Dr, Cook's Claim -Xew York, Sept. spring very ago. Peary's despatch, today from. Indian Harbor -to the Associated Press, gives his first expression concerning the claim of Dr: Cook that >he reached the North Pole almost a year prior to Peary on April 21, 1908. Peary's latest telegram is hardly less notable than" his first announcement which so. absorbed'the attention .of the entire world, as it gives concrete form to the issues already, vaguely outlined in the scientific quarters on the authea-.. ticity of Caok's announcement and the question of "priority in reaching the Pole. At the same tune It is the first expression of opinion from any- one in a position to tknow the facts of the Arctic region on which Dr. Cook's claims are based. It con- tains .direct intimation that Cook ne- ver reached Pole at" all. The despatch from Commander Peary Ws responsive to an enquiry sent bj1 wireless -telegraph to him at Indian Harbor, immediately follow- ing his first announcement. The first message from Peary received by the Associated Press at 12.30 last Mcn- came with such startling sudden- ness that the most urgent were immediately ado'pted to confirm the Pole April 21st, This despatch to Peary was sent within a few minutes of the receipt of Peary's first (telegram announcing his "achieve- ment and it was evidently the first word the explorer received on coming within the range of civilization that Cook had already set up. claim of be- ing the. first discoverer of the Pole.

Westminster G-azette says: "Comrcander Peary's statement brings whole dispute to an acute crisis, "'and the atmos- phere of the JTorth Pole is becoming" decidedly sultry with stormy compli- adding that Dr. Cook's lec- ture 'at Copenhagen last night was not altogether convincing.
