' - Record of Arctic Explorations Runs Back for Centuries and Is Recital of Dire Adventure and Tragedies An American, Dr. Frederick A. Cook, has captured the honor for which daring Spirits for centuries have sac- rificed life and limb. That magic point known as the north pole has finally been located by man, and the quest of ages is at an end. The story of explorations is a recital of dire adventure and tragedies which runs back 1,000 years to the time when the Irish monk, Dicuil, with a number of his clerical brothers, sailed as far north as Iceland and found, as the writings of Dicuil state, that there was no darkness in Iceland during the summer solstice. ( But long before the ninth century the ancients, according to Phtheas, had a legendry knowledge of a far northern island known as Thule. And in the first book of his translation of King Alfred told of the first voyages for discovery made by Other and While the localities men- Wulfstan. s. made his effort to reach the pole with sledge and boat, using a ship from Spitzbergen, scene of his later attempts by balloon flight.

He had rai8ed the funds for the expedition without assistance.. His ship was the Frithjof, a Norwegian vessel. of In 1899 the ship of the duke Abruzzi touched at Franz Josef Land and Wellman, as the first settler, welcomed the duke. Then, in 1906, Wellman was prepared to start in his first attempt to reach the pole in a dirigible balloon. Atmospheric conditions were such as to make a start impracticable. 0 1908-1909- . x Camp of an Exploration d . be the guest of the Commercial club at luncheon.

His ships, the Erebus and the Terror, were seen by a whaler in July, 1845, and that was the last trace. For three years the British admiralty, spurred on by Lady Franklin, sent out relief expeditions, but the only reward of the searchers was the discovery of the grewsome relics of a frightful tragedy. ' One vessel had been crushed in the tee, the other had been stranded on the shore of King Williams Island. Three winters in the north had reduced the explorers to skeletons, and they had fallen one by one by the way in an effort to drag their sledges over the ice to a land camp. The field of arctic exploration ' was ratered M-- Walter Wellmon In 1894. He Party. He started, however, a year later, but was forced to halt. Again last month; he started, but the accident to his balloon forced him again to relinquish the project. He announced then that he would try again. In 1897 Andree and two companions left Danes island from va point only a few hundred yards from Walter Wellmans camp in an attempt to reach the pole by balloon. It was not a diffglbld balloon and the hope of the explorers was that the winds would blow it up to the pole. The last seen of the balloon it was drifting out over the Barents sea, and since then nothing has been heard of it nor has a tracer been found. The adventures of Frithjof Nansen;, the Norwegian explorer, who in 1896 got as far north as latitude 86 degrees 14 minutes, are recent enough to be comparatively fresh in the public memory. He sailed from Christiania iff the Fram, with the intention of forcing his way into the arctic ice near the Vessel Banked with Snow. New Siberian islands and then drifting to the pole. A party was sent out to establish supply stations to which the explorer might retreat if necessary, and the cross country work was to be done on skis. Nansen was absent a long time and fears were entertained for his safety, but he returned, having pem etrated farther north than any other explorer up to that time. In 1900 the Duke of Abruzzi, nephew of the King of Italy, sailed from Christiania in the Stella Po.arl. He was considered an amateur, but he planted his standard in latitude 86 degrees 34 minutes, a new record that stood until Peary penetrated to latitude 87 de grees 6 minutes six years later.
