about thirty-five cars each.1 ...After

who was running the engine of the

were demolished. The rear ca'r of the
first section was a caboose in which
the trainmen v. ere sleeping and the
next two cars were filled with sleep

The greatest loss of life was in the
caboose. One of the wrecked cars of
the second section was occupied by
five elephants and several camels. One
of the elephant and two of the camels
were killed outright, while the other
elephants and their trainers escaped.

Removes Fear that New Pope Might
PARIS The election of Cardinal
Sarto as pope has created a distinctly
favorable impression in governmental
quarters here, removing the fear that
the office might fall upon a radical
or reactionary candidate. The For
eign office received the first informa
tion of the election from press sources,
the news spreading rapidly among the
officials and causing widespread com
ment. Although not espousing any partic
ular candidacy, official feeling has
been favorable to one who would con
tinue the conservative policy of the
British Take Optimistic View.
LONDON Confidential official re
ports received at the foreign office re
garding Macedonia have caused the
British government to adopt the view
that the situation is not very seri
ous for the moment, although suffi
ciently so to warrant takirig of pre
cautions. British officials do not be
lieve that Turkey contemplates an at
tack on Bulgaria in view of the known
attitude of the powers, especially Rus

PIUS IS RUNG IN
FIVE HUNDRED CHURCH BELLS
CORONATION COMES SATURDAY
Great Preparations Being Made for
the Same Pope is to Be Received
on the Threshold of the Basilica by
ROME The attention of Rome' Is
centered in the cerfimony of Satur
day, and for which great prepara
tions are being made. The throne of
St Peter, which Plus X will occcupy,
will be surrounded by a canopy forty
feet high. The pope has informed
the Vatican officials that he wishes
to be received on the threshold of
the basilica by Cardinal Rampolla,
who, as arebpriest of the church, will
address the formal greetings to him.
At the conclusion of the ceremony
the pope will confer his blessing upon
the people, but it has not yet been
decided whether he will do so inside
the cathedral or from the balcony
looking out upon the piazza, where
many hoped he would bestow his ben
ediction on the day of his election.
It is said that Pius X is in favor of
the latter plan, but the influence of
the Vatican officials is against it, on
the ground that it might be interpret
ed as a recognition of the present
state of affairs in Italy. The holding
of the coronation ceremonies in St.
Peter's itself represents a concession,
as in the case of Leo it occurred in
the Sistine chapel. Although it is es
timated that 60,000 tickets will be is
sued for the event, the demand for
them is very great.
At the consistories to be held Mon
day and Thursday next, the pope will
confer the red hat on Cardinals Ajuti,
Taliani, Katschtaler and Herrero y
Espinosa, who were raised from the
purple June 25, but who have not re
ceived these symbols of rank because
of the illness and death of Leo'. It
is believed that the Spanish Cardinal
Herrero will not be able to be pres
ent at the coronation ceremonies.
During one full hour Thursday
morning there seemed to be nothing
but vibrating sounds, so penetrating
were the strokes of- the bells of about
500 churches, which, all ringing to
gether, absorbed all other noises. The
ringing was in honor of the election
of Pius X a welcome unique of its
kind, and ordered ay Cardinal Res
phigi, vicar of Rome, who issued spe
cial instructions therefor. All the
churches contemporaneously celebrat
ed masses for the event, the intoning
of the Oremus combining with the
The bells involuntarily served an
other purpose, that of ringing in the
great ceremony of the reception of
the diplomatic body accredited to the
holy see. Rome has lately been sur
feited with Vatican functions, but
that of Thursday morning was so
striking that it held its own with the

ENJOYS GREAT POPULARITY.
How the Newly Elected Pope is Re
garded. ROME. Cardinal Sarto, the new
elected pope, enjoys great popularity
in his diocese, and is honored, by all
for his purity, for the strict upright
ness of his life, and for 'liberal ideas.
He is a modest and agreeable man,
highly cultivated, very kind hearted,
still strong and robust in spite of his
68 years. He has never taken great
part in the. political and public life
of the church, but divided his time
between study and good works.
Although most faithful to the Holy
See, he was presented to the king and
queen of Italy in Venice. He may be
considered among the more liberal
members of the Italian episcopate and
sacred college. He is rather timid in
expressing an opinion. It is, said that
Leo XIII always thought very highly
of him, and sided with bim on one oc
casion when Sarto disapproved of
He has been known for many years
as one of the greatest preachers in
While Prince Chigi. the master of
the conclave, was drawing up the offi
cial act of the election and acceptance
of the newly elected pope, the latter,
surrounded by his friends, disappeared
into a small room near the altar, where
he donned with feelings of triumph
and humility the white robes of his
office. Pius X was assisted by his
conclavists, who first knelt and ki3scd
his master's hand and thus received
the first apostolic blessing given by
The new pope was attired all in
white, with the exception of red shoes,
which was quite regular, but he did
not stop to remove the red cardinal's
stockings for the white papal one3,
and these showed as he raised his
gown to move forward.
When he was quite robed, the sec
retary of the conclave, Mgr. Merry del
Val. kneeling, offered him the papal
white cap, amid breathless silence. He
did not follow precedent created by
Pope Leo, who declined to give his
red cap to the master of ceremonies,
as a sign that he would scon be cre
ated a cardinal, but with a slight
smile, Sarto took the white cap, placed
it calmly on his head and dropped th
red one lightly on the head of Mgr.
Merry del Val, amidst a murmur of
approval. This was taken as a cer
tain indication that the happy recip
ient is to be raised to the cardinalate.

war department, from whose summary
of commerce the achipelago,,' it 'is
shown that during the nine month3
ending March 31, 1903, exclusive of
gold and silver and government sup

ported and exported amounted .to $46,

and $4,332,196 during-the same period
The import 'figures Indicate that
there has been no material 'change in
the volume of this class of trade as
compared with the previous year, the
gain being confined exclusively to an
increase in exports, principally hemp
and copra, both of which products
doubtless will be shipped in large
quantities for some time to come. The
prospects for greater exportation of
sugar and tobacco, especially the lat
ter, are good.

Announcement of Cardinal Sarto's
election was received with wild en
thusiasm by thousands of people who
had gathered outside of SL Peter's.
The scene within the basilica when,
the pope pronounced his benediction,
was one of unparalleled excitement
and enthusiasm. Thousands of per
sons within the cathedral cheered and
waved their hats.
Ten minutes after 12 o'clock Pope
Pius X appeared inside the balcony
of the basilica and blessed the popu-

enormous crowds assembled upon the
Pope Pius X, who was Cardinal
Giuseppe Sarto, the patriarch of
Venice, was at one time regarded as
Pope Leo's personal choice for the
succession to the chair of St. Peter.
His name suddenly sprang into prom
inence a year ago in connection with
the names of Rampolla, Vannutclli and
Gotti, as cmong the cardinals most
apt to win the high place.
He was born in 1835 and made
patriarch in 1891, being proclaimed
cardinal two years later. He is a
great preacher and fairly well known
as a writer, and he has the reputa
tion of accomplishing all the works
that he has undertaken. He is a
member of the congregations of Bish
ops and Regulars, Sacred Rites, In
dulgences and Sacred Relics and
Cardinal Sarto, prooably the most
able administrator of the Italian epis
copacy, combines firmness and deter
mination with abundant tact and com
mon sense, and has managed to in
augurate a number of very practical
reforms in his archdiocese of Venice
without giving offense either to the
clergy or to the laity.
He avoids all newspaper notoriety.
Indeed, his name is rarely mentioned
in the press. He has always under
stood how to maintain an agreeable,
yet dienifled "modus Vivendi" with
the Italian authorities, from which he
derives his stipend, and has shown his
enlightenment by the vigorous cam
paign which he has carried on against
the veneration of relics of question
He is on friendly terms with the
members of the reigning house of
Italy; during the late reign took part
with King Humbert and Queen Mar
gherita in the launching of a man-of-war,
at Venice, as well as in other
ceremonies at which they were pres
ent, and would certainly be a most
agreeable choice as, pope to the pres
ent ruler of Italy.
