ROME. Dec. 5 (New Tork World Ca

Cardinal Del Val took over from Cardinal
Mo-?nnl the administration of the Vatican
flnancea he aet to work to disentangle the
rather complicated mass of the book
keeping department. Thla dlacloaed an ab
aolutely appalling atate of thing. It aeema
that Iho late pope, at leaat during the last
ten or twelve yeara of hla pontificate, lived

Cardinal Moeenni had to appeal peraon
ally to Pope Leo for the money necessary
for current expenses whenever the Income
from the Invented capital waa not sufficient
to meet the daily outlay of the Vatican.

Millions Have Dlaappeared.
The' consequences of thla policy ara Just
now terlnnlng to appear and It la a prob

savtral millions of franca have disappeared
On explanation Is that the late pope
often lent money to needy prelates ana
csrfllnnls and to a few foreign prince and
UlhitTJe'sdvrrtTmrn, besides granting
loans to several noble families or Rome
which, owlnK to the loss of the temporal
tower and their oontlnued faithfulness to
the old order of thing, round themselves
on the brink of bankruptcy. Two of these
families ere' the .ancient onea of the
Borgheae and Maaelmo, th Utter of which
waa enabled to keep up Its famoua state

through the generosity of rius IX and the
late rope. The Borgheae family also had
lost all of Its property through mistaken
Investments In Roman real estate and waa
compelled recently to Bell to the city Ha

on tha walla of Rome.
' Pope Leo always hoped that some time
or other these 'and other ancient families
whim he waa helping financially would re
trleve their lost possessions, If In no other
way through some fortunate marriage, and
many are the efforta he made to bring
about auch alliances with young men and
women of rich foreign Catholic families.
Only In the caae of young Borgheae did ha
succeed; for him he obtained the hand of
the richest helreaa of Genoa and recovered
for the Vatican the money advanced to
the desperate head of the family. But
uen waa not the caae with othera who bor

which waa carried out v rdance with
Marmoreck's minutest vtructlons, the
serum apparently aggravated rather than
alleviated the symptoms of the disease.

uffered complications of their disease. One
who had not had pulmonary tuberculosis

Injection of the serum Increased the pa
tient's fever, thus causing deepening reac-
lon and also doubled hla expectoration.
The serum apparently did not benefit tu
berculosis lesions, and even caused new
lesions to appear. It seemingly had no
nourishing qualities, for under Its use the
sufferers rapidly became emaciated, al-
hough additional food was given to them.
Dl Kulafoy said that, in view of these re
nin, he waa forced to ask Marmoreck to
discontinue the treatment. Dr. A. le Dentu,
chief of the Hospital Necker, and Dr. Hal-
opeau, chief of the Hospital. St. Louis, also
stated that they had employed the serum
to tuberculoids with no good reaults.
On the other hand, Dr. Charles Monad of
the Hospital St. Antotn told the academy
he believed ten of hla tuberculosis patients
had been benefited by the scrum.
Dr. Marmoreck received the World oorre-
apondent today. "There can be not the
sllghteat question of the good faith of any
of my confereea," said the doctor. "But
It is due to myself to say that my serum

At the correspondent's request Dr. Mar

his method of treating tuberculoala and
that of Dr. Koch. "Koch took a certain

human body, with resulting reaction and
