HOME. Sept. I. (Special Cablegram to
The B.) Interesting complicatlona
have arisen it tlx Vatican. The chief
symptom la that tha cardinal! are no
longer Consulted, and that tha cardinal
secretary of atata governs not only their
heads, but over tha head of tha good and
pious old pope. Leo XIII never failed to
consult the cardinal on all Important
question, and always listened to their
vlewa with close -attention. Under tha
Merry del Val recline, tha claim la made
that tha cardinals, even those who con
tributed most to the election of Plus X
have been pushed aside.
The opposition constats of three cate
gories of cardinals. The extreme left,
tha "Montagne" of this new movement,
is recruited from the best, the cleverest,
and tha most modern members of tha
Sacred college. To 'this group belongs
Cardinal Satolll, who has learnt much
during his long aojourn in the United
States; Cardinal Agllardl, - famous for
bis wit; Cardinal Ferranta, , formerly
nuncle to Paris; the aged but learned
Cardinal Capecelatra, tha Impulsive Car
dinal Vlncenso Vanutellt (the chief friend
of Oermany In tha Sacred college), and
tha French Cardinal Mathleu. In the
group of the Moderates" are the Cardi
nals Caasetta, Cavagnla, Cavtchlonl, Oen
parl, Mlntlnelll, and Nocella, all ardent
partisans and electors of Plus X. Tha
third and last militant group, which con
lines Itself to observation and mute criti
cism, Is made up of men like Cardinal
Oreglla, Macchl, Ootti, Eeraflno and
Rampella Is Wattlae-.
And Cardinal RampotlaT ' Since tha

a conflict with the triple alliance, , t
It Is announced that, Blgnor Schneider,
the architect of the Vatican, while tipping
an n: chltrave of the sUir . leading; to the
museums of the Vatican for tha purpose
of restoration, ordered a workman to
crape It - cautiously, considering that per
haps under the surface there might be soma
painting. . In fact, whilst the workman was
craping away , tha whitewash, there
gradually came to light colors, on their
first apearanee faint blue and , afterwards
A tha work of discovery proceeded
there were valuable ornamental or deco
rative paintings of ths fifteenth century
revealed to the workmen. These were of
tha Raphael school of painting. Among
tha ornaments was a magnificent shield
f Pep Leo X. Some 'of those who have
bad an opportunity of seeing these works
have coma, at first glance, to the opinion
that' they 'may have been painted by
Raphael himself, or at least by Glullo
Romano, bla most prominent and prob
ably his ablest disciple. The fact that
these works of great art have been cov
ered over suggests that this was dons
Ither to conceal themr they were white
washed during the prevalence of Infectious
. Christian Demeerata Active.
Th conflict between the Vatican and
tha moat advanced section of tha Catholics,
known under the name of Christian demo
crats, is becoming mora acuta, aa the pope
kas Issued an encyclical especially directed
against them, condemning, their movement,
taetlcs and aspirations, and forbidding un
der Hie gTavest penalties, all members of
tha clergy from participating In that as
societies;. The Vatican evidently believed
this to be a master stroke, capable of
annihilating tha young movement, but, an
tha contrary. It haa found new, strength
after having been so attacked. Naturally,
tha clergy left the ranks, but the laymen
gathered everywhere voting orders of the
day from all parts of Italy, stating that

PARIS, Sept I. (Special Cablegram to

pears ss though there Is every prospect
of Miss Sarah Bernhardt obtaining the
cross of the Legion of Honor at an early
date. The cabinet has decided to pub
lish the decree of the nomination In the
"Journal Official" over the heads of ths
council of the order. It Is a mistake to
think that that body haa any power of
veto on nominations by the government.
According to the constitution of the order,
the various ministers are bound to con
ault the council of the Jrder before mak
ing any nominations, but they aro in no
wsy bound by Its decision. The council
ran merely offer advice. In practice, how
ever, an unfavorable decision by the
council has been regarded as a veto on
the appointment. This was inevitable.
Thousanda of names are annually sub
mitted to the various ministers. They
cannot possibly know ' the claims and
qualifications of every candidate. The
names are .therefore passed on , to the
council of the order, which makes an in
vestigation and reports on the qualifica
tions of the candidates. Nlrjety-nlne
times out of 100 the reasons are not suffi
cient and the minister accepts the de
cision. The result hss been that the
council haa ended by creating a little 1m
perium In Inperlo and arrogated to Itself
powers of veto which constitutionally it
does not possess. It had only to make

PUTNET. Eng., Sept. 8 Today's boat
rsce between crews rrom Harvard and
Cambridge universities, which wss won
by the Englishmen by two lengths, was
probably the most surprising ever rowed
on the Thames, not so much because of
the result., but the way In which It was
Cambridge, as had been feared by Har
vard and hoped for by Engilahmen, got
away the better, securing a lesd which
they Increased to three lengths before
Hammersmith bridge was reached. ' Both
crews, as-they went under the brldgo,
were rowing steadily at twenty-eight
strokes to the minute, neither apparently
exerting Itself. Suddenly Harvard com
menced to use more power, and although
Cambridge already had the race won and
had the advantage of water conditions,
the latter was compelled to Increase tha
stroke to thirty-three and finished a tired
out crew. Donaldson was ready to col
lapse and Close-Brookes tn the bow was
nearly as bad, The remainder of the
crew paddled the boat - to the landing
stsge.' The Harvard men on the othor
hand apparently were quite fresh and
took their boat across the river at a
brisk rate. ;
English experts say there la but opa
explanation for the result, that of super
iority of English oarsmanship and of tha
English stroke. Harvard had one of the .
flnest crews physically, -ever, seen on the
river, but was unable to overcome that
training' which English oarsmen receive
from childhood. The Cambridge .crew,'
too, had In Stuart, one or the best strokes
England has produced. It also had the
advantage of choice of side, but thoso
who- know the river best ssy this was
little An their favor with the tide and
wind 'as they 1 were today.
Great Crowd! Sees Race.
The crowd which lined the banks from
Putnsy to Mortlake, massed on fridges.,'
roofs 'and 'balconies and weighted down,
the branches of trees was a record gath-'
ring for recent years. ' To' estimate ths .
number of persons who witnessed tha"
Contest would be, (Impossible, but they
stretched In unbroken . atrlnga for ' four
andT one-half miles on slthsr aide of the
river. Of ' Americana (here . Ware . hun-
deeds,' all ahoWIng the ' Harvard colors,'
chiefly in specially 'chartered bOata. The
crimson, however, only showed in splashes
amidst the endless display of the light
blue of Cambridge. When the tight blues
were' seen to have gained an advantage at
the start a great cheer went up from the
crowds on Putney bridge. In Fulham park
and on the Putney towpat'h. It waa taken
up by those further along and continued
with Interruption to the end of tha lace,
when there was a final tremendous out
burst from the people on Barnes bridge,'

finish siid thousands upon thousands who
had gathered at Mortlake.
Stroke Stuart of the Cambridge crew,
said: . "Fllley and his crew rowed . a
magnificent race. We are glad we won,
but sorry to defest such good fellows."
Captain Fllley of the Harvard boat.
locanlcally declared that his men had been
beaten fairly and squarely. Cosch Wray
was gloomy and had nothing to say ex
cept that he had no excuse to offer. Coaoh
! Mattlebury of Cambridge said: "The Har
Lvard men made up the beat crew ever sent
out irom ine i niiea elates, witn another
yesr and a little more of the English style

I hope tha Americans will favor us with

posed ' the health of King Edward and

to the toast' to President Roosevelt, said
that while he was not altogether contented
with the result of todsy's race, ha waa.
aure the president would be satisfied with
the way Harvard had borne defeat. Ha
promised the Cambridge crew a warm weL

over there for a return race. Colonel Wll

Captain Fllley, replying for the American
"There Is no question that the beat crew
won. We have nothing to say to the cr
trary. Had the race been rowed frqap
Mortlake to Putney Instead of as It wag
the reault would have been the same. I'm
sorry we did not give them a better race."
As the afternoon advsnced dense crowd
gathered at th starting point snd stretch-,
Ing along the river banks ss far aa the ey
could reach, testifying to the fact that tha
sporting Instincts of the British public had
been aroused as they had seldom been
arOussd Urfore. Tha thrur.g were wholly
cosmopolitan and cheered with equal en
thusiasm all appearances of the wearers of
the crimson or of the blue. . t
The breese freshened somewhat as the.
time for starting the race approached and
there was much eagerness to ascertain
which crew was the winner of the toss for
positions, ss It wss calculated that ,th
choice of the Surrey aide of the river might
give the lucky crew an advantage of as
much aa a length.
Crews Slay la Quarters.
The crews themselves kept mostly to
their respective headauartera at tha
j Leander and London Rowing clubs, saving
every ounce or power for the coming
atruggle. The doubts as to the outcome
were evidenced by the nervous anxiety of
th aupporters of both sides among tha
genersl public, but thoe in oloro touch
with the two "eighths" remained calmly
confident, satisfied that their charges were
in the pink of condition and ready for a
desperate struggle. The Harvard crew, In
