THE POPE IS DEAD
VENERABLE PONTIFF YIELDS TO
ATTACK OF DISEASE.
rHE LAST MOMENTS PEACEFUL
Cardinals, Relatives and Members of
tho Papa) Court at the Death Bed
Burial Will Take Placo In Nino
ROME Tho popo died shortly after
f o'clock Monday afternoon. His last
moments were comparatively pcacoful
and painless nnd wcro preceded by a
porlod of Insensibility.
Around tho bedside nt tho final mo
ment wcro tho cardlnnlB, tho relatives
and tho papal court. Bforo lapsing
into unconciousness the dying pontiff
feebly moved hl's lips, his last artlcti
lato words bolng those used In bostow
lng a benediction.
Gradually tho shadow of death
spread over tho pontiff, his extremities
bocamo cold, bl3 features assumed tho
fixed rigidity of death, nnd Dr. Lapon
nl noted his last fluttering heart beats,
which gradually became Blower and
weaker, until thoy finally stopped.
Tho news of tho pnpo's doath Bpread
rapidly throughout Romo and caused
a most profound sensation. Tho wholo
city is In mourning.
During tho nlannlng crisis about
noon, whllo tho popo was lying on his
bed, perfectly motionless, and around
him knelt tho cardinals and other
momborB of tho papal court, praying,
without any preliminary restlessness,
the pontiff opened hlB eyes, which fell
on Cardinal Oroglla, who waB at his
side, and said solemnly: "To your
eminence, who will bo soon seize tho
reins of Bupremo power, I confldo tho
church In theso dllllcult times."
Of tho supremo moment, Dr. Laponnl
gives an impresslvo description. Ho
"Death occurred through exhaustion,
nlthough In tho last two hours Popo
Leo mado a supremo effort to gather
together all his energies. Ho suc
ceeded In recognizing those about him
by tho sound of their voices, as his
Bight was almost entirely lost. Still
ho mado a marvelous display of his
energy and oven his death wns really
grand. It was resigned, cnlm and se
rene. Few oxamples can bo given of a
man of such ndvanced ago, nfter so ex
haustive an illness, showing such su
premo courago In dying. Tho pontiff's
laBt breath was taken exactly at 4:01.
I put a lighted candle to his mouth
thrco times, nccordlng to tho tradi

clared tho popo to bo no more.

Cardinals Formally Declare that Pope
Leo XIII Is Dead.
ROME Tuesday morning began
the first of thoso graudioso nnd unique
ceremonies which follow the demise
of a pope, nnd, although private, it
wa3 conducted with great pomp and
was most Impressive.
All tho cardinals present In Rome,
numbering twenty-nine, assembled at
the apostolic palaco to vlow tho re
mains of the late Leo XIIl' and to offi
cially pronounce him dead.
Cardlnnl Oreglla, dean of tho sacred
collcgo and camcrlingo of tho holy
Roman church, had to put asldo his
cardinal's sign of deep mourning and
was gowned entirely In violet. Tho
other cardinals wore crimson robes,
with violet collars, Indicative of
Within the death chambor the body
lay, with a white veil over tho face,
on tho bed, surrounded by tho Francis
can penitentiary, whllo outsldo the
noble guard maintained a solemn
vigil. Tho profound silence was only
broken by tho chautlng of prayers
for the dead,
Into this solemn presence came the
mourning procession of cardinals,
who, kneeling silently, prayed. Then
the prelates reverently looked on
while Cardinal Oreglla approached
tho remains. For this function tho
popo's bed room has boon transform
ed into a mortuary chapol, an altar
at ono end. having in tho ccutor a
crucifix Burrounded by six lighted can
dies. Four candles stood at the bed
corners. Tho whlto veil was then ro
movod from tho dead man's face, re
vealing tho camco-liko foaturos of the
departed pope, rondored sharpor and
more transparent by doath. So life
llko was the body that those present
had expected Loo to rnlso his hand in
tho familiar gesture of blessing.
A momont of breathless sllenco en
sued and then the cardinal earner-
lingo, taking" tho aspcrsorium, sprln
and said In a firm voice, "Gloacchlno"
(tho Christian namo of tho deceased
holy father). Whenthero was no an
swer, tho same word was repeated
thrco times, louder and louder. After
which, turning to tho kneeling cardi
nals, tho camcrlingo solemnly an
nounced "Papa vertu mortuus est"
(tho popo Is really dead).
As tho words wcro uttered there
aroso from tho kneeling cardinals a
sigh, a tribute paid to tho lato pontiff
by these princely heads of tho church.
After tills, In voices trembling with
emotion, tho ranking cardinals recit

During tho day tho congregation of
cardinals met and decided to hold tho
conclavo under the Identical regula
tions which obtained at the conclavo
which elected Leo.
Dr. Laponnl, In tho course of tho
day, presented to Cardinal Oreglla a
report of tho autopsy which was held
and which showed that thcro was no
sign of cancer in tho pope's body.
POPE'8 BODY 18 EMBALMED.
Doctors Perform Autopsy and Find

ROME Dr. Papponl presented to
Cardlnnl Orcglla, dean of tho sacred
college, tho official report of tho au
topsy performed Tuesday on tho body
pf tho pope, which was conducted bo
far as permissible In connection with
tho embalming. Tho report Is chiefly
Important In disproving tho presence
of cancer or nephritis. Tho text of
tho report follows:
"Rome, July 22. Yestfcrday even
ing, from 4 to 8 tho embalming of the
body of his holiness, Leo XIII, occur
red." After giving the names of those who
assisted and thoso who wcro present
at tho autopsy, the report says:
"Wo began by Injecting Into tho
thigh over flvo litres of special pre
serving fluids. Having opened tho ab
domen tho lower viscera were ex
tracted and found to be perfectly
healthy. Tho spleen and kidneys
were absolutely normal. In the lat
ter tho cortical substance was well
preserved and of a pale pink color.
"After opening tho thorax It was
found that the heart, the aorta and
tho carotid arteries were healthy, ex
cept that in tho nrcha aorta was
found an ntherstmateus excresence.
Nothing unusual was found in tho per
icardium. The pleura on the left side
was quite normal) but on the right
sldo tho pleura was full of liquid of
an orange yellow color above and
bloody at tho bottom, with a large
clot of flbrino floating. More flbrino
was on the freo surface of the pleura
towards tho ribs, with a Blight scrap
ing of flbrino easily detached, allow
ing a view of tho surface ce'rum. Tho
upper part of tho right lung was quite
normal, but the lower part was some
what hard and cracked at tho touch,
and whllo cutting a whitish, frothy
liquid oozed out, Tho Inferior lobe
had partly adhered to tho wall of the
thorax, and when this was cut a
dirty white, abundant liquid without
gas oozed out, showing complete hepa
tlzatipn." TALK AS TO THE NEW POPE.
Conditions Are Such He May Be Man
Not Yet Mentioned.
ROME According to a Btntement
coming from a high ecclesiastical
source, the arrangements at tho Vati
can are being pressed forward which
will enable tbo conclave of cardinals
to begin Bitting August 1. However,
It is thought tho sessions may last con
siderably longer than at first expect
ed oven long enough to permit Car
dinal Moran of Sydney, N. S. W., to
arrlvo in tlmo to take part In tho pro
ceedings. An ambassador accredited to tho
Vatican says tho quostlon of Popo
Loo's successor is a peculiarly open
ono at tho present momont. Tho per
sonality of tho candidates plays a
much moro Important part than in any
preceding conclavo, slnco the condi
tions prevailing in the past aro now
Cardinal Svampa is quoted as say
ing: "Tho conclavo will bo very
short, as were the last two. At the
utmost I think It may. tako ono week,
as now thcro does not exist In tho sa
cred college tho marked political dif
ferences of other times. Therefore, it
will be possible to arrlvo at an under
standing more easily and quicker."
WAR IS SCENTED.
Fear that the Fear East Will Breed
LONDON Tho Dall Mali's Toklo
correspondent sends a rather alarming
view o'f tho situation In tho far east.
Ho says Russia's rentlon of Manchu
ria, tho increase of its fleet, tho dis
patch of reinforcements to Manchu
ria, the southward movement of tho
army occupying Manchuria and tho
defiant conduct on tho Corean fron
tier, all alarmed tho Japs, many of
whom aro convinced that It would bo
hotter to fight now than risk tho
eventual loss of Corea and tho rele
gation of Japan to a secondary place.
Tho Japs, ho proceeds, aro accumulat
ing stores and negotiating tho pur
chaso of ships and already havo a

port Russian vessels havo been sent
as a precaution, and both fleets aro

The Siberian press Is declared to

tho Russians believe they will lose
prestige If they give way now, as
their far eastern empiro will bo lost
and Japaneso Influence will become
Tho appointment of Marquis Ito as
president of tho Privy council, tho
correspondent says, is favorable to
peace, but Russia must retreat or
mero wm ne gravo danger or war.
Tho Japaneso believe Franco and Eng
lang will Join In tho expected con
flict, which diplomatists at Toklo
think, If once begun, will continue for
years, Involving disastrous results to
Japan financially and tho creation of
a sort of Balkan difficulty in Corea.
Ho adds that confidence is shown in
tho Anglo-Japanese alliance.

either failure that can be traced to
business or industrial conditions out

to a diagnosis of speculative collapse.
Both firms have been largely concern
ed in speculative stock market pools,
formed for tho purpose of taking on a
lino of stocks, sustaining their price
by supporting orders real or manipu
lative, and seeking to realize profits
by selling out to outsiders at the high
prices. Such operations haye resulted
In increasing difficulties with tho
growth In tho stringency of money, tho
solicitude of bankers over loans em
ployed In such production, and tho
Jaded appetite of the public for such
securities. The operations of tho
firm of W. L. Stowo & Co. were on
a largo scale in Mexican Central, and

Origin or Names cf Carriages.
Omnibuses wero first seen In Paris
in 1827, and the namo is nothing moro
than the Latin word signifying "for
all." "Cab" Is an abbreviation of tho
Italian word cabriola, which was
changed to cabriolet in French. Botb
words havo a common derivative
cabriole signifying a goat's leap. Tho
exact reason for giving it this strange
appellation Is unknown, unless be
cause of tho llghttiess and springiness
of tho vehicle In Its original form. In
some instances tho names of special
forms of carriages are derived from
the titles of persons who introduced
them. Tho brougham was first used
by tho famous Lord Brougham, and
tho popular hansom also derives its
name from Its introducer, Mr Hansom.
Landau, a city in Germany, was tho
locality In which was first made tho
stylo of vehicle bearing that name.
