To guard against accident I took one set of these papers and Professor Marvin took the other.

Commander Peaiy declined to make any answer at present. Continuing, Peary said that Dr. Cook was expected by the -world to submit, to an impartial tribunal, -or board of .arbitration, a revised and. signed 'statemertt .of his alleged discovery of the Pole. Cook soon would reach the United States.. Commander -Peary said, arid he. was glad at the prospect of being submitted for consideration at an early date. It should done inside of a couple of, weeks, and when it is done, Commander declared, he was .prepared to -give over to the board of arbitration, to the public, and to the scientific bodies an array of testimony which would disprove Dr. Cook's claim for all time.

The explor- cr said he also would turn over to the competent tribunal and -the .pub- lic certified copies of his observations made on trip to the Pole, with all other information. Peary does not care to submit these records at the present time, for reasons that the information contained as divulged in -.advance of the placing on filfi of "Dr. Cook's authorized and definite version, might lx> of advantage'to the Cook partisans. It is rumored here tiha-t Commander Peary's brief will contain sensational statements, .and .tiha't u portion of his document was prepared as long ago as the early months of 1908, when letter were received from JDr. Cook, in Greenland, yiving notice that he intended t.o make flash for the pole. Askod jiow Harry Whitney happen- ed to remain in north. Command- er Peary said, Whitney was one of a part.y of sportsmen who went as passengers on board the- steamer Erik at Etah. where it. was decided to) land a-party with supplies for thei relief of Dr. Cook, particularly in I view of the fart that RudolpheJ Franekc was being- invalided home.' Whitney asked if he might remain in .station to hunt polar bears in the- spring- and make a trip after musk oxen. This was -deckled on. 3n order-to provide against the Con- tingency of the Kooscvelt not coming from the north in the summer of 1909. in which event ho would be obliged to remain in the Arctic for two years. Mr. Whitney made' ar- rangements for a ship to come up for him this summer. CITY AND DISTRICT T. D. Kevin and bri'de have return- ed to the city. Preparatory to the proposed trip of a company of leading men. through the west in the interests of the Lay- men's Missionary Movement, A. E.
