PROPOSED MONUMENT TO CAPTAIN COOK. Sir George Elliott, M.P. for North Durham, has signified his intention to dedicate a piece of land on his estate, West Cliff, Whitby, to the public, and erect thereon a monument to Captain Cook, the circum- navigator. Captain Cook spent several years of his early life at the fishing village of Staithes, a few miles to the north of the port of Whitby. In later years he sailed from the harbour of Whitby, and it is an his- torical fact that in undertaking his adventurous voyages round the world he preferred the vessels which were built at Whitby by Whitby men. The site chosen by Sir George Elliot for the erection of a monument to the illustrious circumnavigator is one of the most prominent on the hon. baronet's estate. It commands an uninterrupted view of the German Ocean, of the coast scenery both north and south, of the romantic Abbey ruins on the opposite side ef the harbour, and of the vale of the Esk.
