Chicago, July 6. The tribune to day says that seventy-two dead and 2.736 Injured are the second day totals i of the accidents attending the cele bration of the Fourth of July In the United States. This breaks all rec ords of deaths since 1809 The number of deaths this year reported up to 3 o'clock this morning is thirteen more than at the name time last year. In 1905 fifty-nine were dead at the same hour. The The number of Injured, however, Is only two-thlrda of the average for the last five years. This Is regarded as an Indication that the agitation for a "sane Fourth" Is having Its effect. This year's Are loss Is 1535,435, which Is about the average of the last ten years. HAVE THE JOrnXAL-COrRIEIt. For the convenience of those at Savin Rock the Journal-Courier Is kept on sale at Zoller & Schneider's newsstand at the Grove. New York, July 6. It vas just as neat and recherche a diamond and gun party as one could wish for. There was A. W. Forman of the firm of Cooper & Forman, manufacturing Jewelers and diamond deal.-rs. on the eluhth door of 3 Maiden lane, busy In the private room In which the firm takts all customers for diamonds who are unknown to them, with two well dressed, fine mannered men who wanted to purchase a stone to present to a friend "something good, yu know, for a couple of hundred or so." Outside the little, room, closed off, was the bookkee per, Wllllum A. Rten son, nineteen' years old, Mid to be an expert with the revolver, standing quite still, and looking intently Into a looking glass on the wall, that show ed everything that was going on In the room, but which could not be seen from where the customers were. Stenson, according to the rule of the place, had taken his position In front of the glass as soon as Forman en tered the room with the prospective customers. He watched vhlle the two men showed what appeared to be an order given by them on a firm manu facturing silverware down the street. They wer going to give the silver ware to the same friend. If they had been doing business with that firm they must be fairly good people, at least, and Forman brought out a tray containing small lots of diamonds rnrrfinly wrapped up. There were three or four stones In each, valued at about 200 apiece. The stranRers examined the stones and allowed that they were fine, but they wanted something a bit better. The men seemed to be all right, but Forman never took his eyes from them. He was far too experienced said they had found what they want ed. Forman was pleased whun they gavo him an order to mount one of the dia monds, and said they would have a check cashed and come batik and leave a deposit. But out In front of the glass the bookkeeper started and reached quickly Into a drawer. There was a shaking of hands, smiles, and a general cheerfulness fol lowing a good sale to satisfied custo mers, when the bookkeeper, who does not look his nineteen yea.-s, pushed his way through the partly open door, face set and grim, a big revolver In his band, and said quietly; "Pray, be seated, gentleman." "The gentlemen didn't pray, but they "6ot," as a policeman said later. Then they demanded, with great In dignation, to know what was meant. "It means," said tlio bookkeeper, "that you want to take those dia monds out of your hat." "Sir!" exclaimed the two gentlemen In tho same breath. Stenson cocki 1 tl.t revolver to show them he meant business.

At tho office of the company they say there was $10,000 worth of stones In the package. And Forman, the wise, sharp-eyed man who had watch ed so closely, stood aghast. He had not seen the transfer. The men attempted to leave, but i Stenson halted them. He got word to j un elevator man, who got Traltlc Ta- J trolman Tom Daly from tho corner and Lieut. Monahan of headquarters i on tho Job. There was a race through tho building. Tho men got desperate and made a break when Stenson said he'd shoot. They were caught at the door. The policeman looked Into Rtenson's revolver and whistled. It wasn't loaded. To po lice headquarters went the party, i There the two men were recognized at once by members of the detective ! force. Cine was James O. Shank of 4 40 West 102d street, his companion, Frederick Kenny of 219 West Twenty- Donald McMillan of Maine, a graduate of Bowdoln college; Georgo Horup of the Sheffield Scientific school; Dr. J. W.

Tho crew was kept busy up to the hour of departure stowing away stores In the hold Including large quantities of books and magazines and a billiard table. Just before leaving, 21 Bibles were received aboard, the gift of the New York Bible society. The Daugh ters of the Revolution presented to Commander Teary a peace flag with tho request that he carry It with him to the pole as "a shield and buckler against all disaster. Captain Bartlett, Peary's sailing master, snld that the Roosevelt would bo nt 90 degrees In August. "We will pick up our collier at Sydney and put on life bonis and somo extra rigging," he sold.

New York, July 6: With the Tcary Arctic club pennant fluttering from her main truck and flying the stars and stripes at her mlzzen, tho Arctlo exploration steamer Roosevelt loft her pier at East Twenty-fourth street, to-day, carrying Commander ftobert E. Peary, who is to head another ex pedition In quest of tho north polo, The RooBevelt, accompanied by a gov ernment .tug, proceeded to a point near City Island where she anchored for the night to permit the adjustment of her compasses, and to-morrow the steamer will go to Oyster Bay where President Roosevelt will board her to bid good-bye to her commander and crew. The Roosevelt will then head for Sydney, Cape Breton, where she will stop to tak on coal. Before the ship left to-day Com mander Peary expressed the hope nt reaching tho northern goal beforo his return. "I have done too much work in the Arctic regions," he said, "to believe that I can make tho pole without strenuous work. I am not foolish enough 'to say that T am going to do or die, but I am certainly going to put Into this trip every olt of energy mental, moral and physical that I have In order to succeed In my un dertaking. I know my path will be hedged In by many trials and un doubtedly many disappointments, but I feel confident as my ship leaves New York to-day, that if I do not reach the pole itself, at least I wil carry yie American Hag further north than it has been curried by any prev ious explorer. Unless unforeseen circumstances Intervene' within tho next year X hope to plant tho stars and stripes at the pole." As the Roosevelt swung out Into tho East river a few minutes after 1 o'clock a crowd on the pier cheered good-bye whllo the whls:l?a of tho river craft Joined in the farewell. All tho way up East liver and Into the sound the Roosevelt was greeted by salutes of steamers.
