.:. . Whereabouts.
CHICAGO. July 7 A dispatch to the
Record-Herald from Washington says:
' That .Captain Robert E Peary ha
sacrificed bis life in the efforfc to discover
the north pole is the fear of naval men
here, who are worried by the failure to
get any tidings of the ship Roosevelt,
which sailed for the Arctic regions July
16, 1005. ;,-.'."' ;
Advices from the American Geographi
cal Society add to their fear. Reports
are that the weather in the Far North
this spring and early summer was more
than usually rigorous, that severe storms
have been frequent and that the ice is
heavy. Consequently it la feared that
Peary's Bhip may have been ground to
pieces by the drifting ice-. ;
Theexplorers' plans, when he left last
summer, were to proceed to the farthest
possible, point of land north of Cape
Sabine and within 500 miles of the pole.
There he was to establish a winter base
and make all preparation for a trip
across the ioe this summer as soon as
weather conditions would permit. This
he expected would not ' occupy more
than six weeks and, according to hia
calculations, he would reach home hot
later than October of this year.
Esquimaux and dogs, it is supposed,
were taken aboard the Hoosevelt last
summer,, far it is on the lianly inhabi
tants of the polar Vgions that Peary
has always relied. It was thought, how.:
ever, that a whaling vessel might bring
some , tidings of the Roosevelt, and' the
failure "of any news of the expedition to
reach the outside world for so many
months U aroiwing the keenest anxiety,

Bill For Abolishing Death Penalty Fails
In Lower Hon.
I ST. PETERSBURG, July 7The bill
in the lower house of parliament for the
abolition of the death penalty, went on
the rock today between the caucus of

There was the greatest demand for the
retention of the death penalty from
those provinces in tb grip of the revo

the lower house, and ba revived th
demand for the abolition of the council
