Macon declared that IVary's whole

He hii hi his contempt for "fake he-

the lVary Arctic. Club and charged
that It had maintained a paid lobby In
Washington; He mild that President

gratulated Cook as heartily as Peary.
Faying compliment to the editors

"I pity the man so Ignorant as to
be terror-stricken all the time or fear
that he will be called Ignorant by

Macon expressed the belief that
