That jealousy lies at the bottom of the European criticisms is the belief of many geographers, who are inclined to side with Rqosevelt until until at least further details are received. "We have not the 'slightest doubt," said G v H. Sherwooc, assistant secretary secretary of the American .Museum of Natural Natural History, "that Colonel Roos,evelt and his party did what tney say, nor that they knew what they were doing. Colonel Roosevelt's report to us was most specific. He cabled: " 'We have also put on the map a river running from north or the 2.5th degree (now shown to have been an error in transmission) to south of the 5th degree, the largest affluent of tlie Madeira; the upper part hitherto utterly utterly unknown by any one, and lower part utterly unknown to cartographers.' cartographers.'

Advises Waiting. "There are likely to have been errors errors in transmitting the figures of latitude latitude and longitude by .cable," continued continued Adams, "and it is difficult indeed indeed to form a judgment on the meager meager information we have. An error in one figure might make u difference in mapping the result. "If Roosevelt says he has found a new river it is certainly well to await the. arrival of his scientific data. He has traveled considerably in the wilds and one may see'by reading 1 his works that he has a good geographic sense. Thjs is especially noticed in his 'Winning 'Winning of the West,' where he discusses geographical matters with force and understanding'. "It has been said that a river- cannot cannot run up hill.
