ROME. July 11, 6:40 a. m The usual
gathering of watchers, mostly Journalists,
witnessed from the piazza of St. Peter's
tat? opening of the windows of the papel
apartment this morning by the Pope's
faithful valet. Cintra. From what has
transpired from the sick room It appears
that no significant change has taken place
In the condition of the patient up to the
present hour. Dr. Lapponi succeeded in hav
ing Pope Leo take a sufficient quantity of
nourishment during the night.
Another operation performed ysterday

by It the possibility of his life's tx ing pro

of recovery. News Just received from the
Vatican says the Pope is now lying in
a restless condition, after having had a
good sleep during the early hours of the
As the immediate result of yesterday's
operation, the Pope spent a quiet and al
most painless day, with for his age, a
normal temperature, and he only more
strikingly exhibited his strength of con
stitution and intellect.
At tbe examination last evening the doc
tors could not perceive any regatherlng of
serum In the pleural cavity, but it was
feared that the presence of serum would
be detected to-day, thus rendering neces
sary perl aps another operation soon.
U.EIT CNTIL 2 A. M.
Shortly before midnight the condition of
the Pontiff was reported to have under
gone no change, and it was added that he
had Just dropped peacefully Into sleep. At
that hour all within the palace was quiet,
the Pontiff's apartment alone showing signs
of life. The Pope slept until 2 o'clock this
morning, when he woke up seemingly more
refreshed, and asked for food. His pulse
was taken and found to vary from 87 to 93.
His temperature was 96.8 and his breathing
Tbe latter part of the night was not so
good, owing to the restlessness and unea'i
ness of the patient. Dr. Lapponi has been
going almost every fifteen minutes to look
at the Pontiff, who did not notice the pres
ence of the doctor, being in a drowsy state.
Dr. Lapponi administered a dose of chloral
and gave the patient at the same time an
Injection of camphor caffeine.
A general feeling of tranquillity marked
the day in Rome yesterday. The self-confidence
of the patient permeates the people,
and especially the simpler folk, who go
about their day s work, postponing signs
of sorrow and mourning until from the sick
bed itself they hear the unequal struggle is
near ing its end. There is foretold, almost
apathetically, a repetitlou during the next
few days of that exceptional medical his
tory of recoveries and relapses which have
so astonished the world this week. That no
doctor will lend the weight of his opinK a to
uphold this popular impression in no way
affects the prevailing idea of the Romans.
Nothing Is more wonderful than the Pope
himself, they say; hence miracles are not
out of the question.
SCENES AT THE VATICAN.
The news of yesterday morning's opera
tion sent cardinals and ambassadors driv
ing hurriedly to the Vatican. The somber
black carriages and horses of the former,
relieved only by glimpses of the scarlet
robea worn by the pale-faced occupants.
contrasted strangely with the brilliant
equipages of the ambassadors. Outside

past the Swiss Guards and ascended the
staircase leading to the Inner court of the

with the bewildering colors of the papal
court and the rich attire of the guards,
the shuttered windows are pleasant-like in
tbeir simplicity. Another window caught
the eye. This was open and the sun
streamed in on Raphael's priceless fres

dea-eLded to make inquiries. Prince Mas

Pope himself, the hesd of one of the most
ancient families in Rome, all the cardinals
and counUeaa bishops and priests came to

A small crowd of men, women and chil
dren of all descriptions besieged the d...r
where the news was to be given out. From
the Castle of Bt. Ar.gelo came the boom of
the midday gun and then the palatin guard
gave the signal for the anxious crowd to be
admitted. Passing through the corridor
each received a slip of white pap. r on
which the morning bulletin was already
printed. latently reading these papers, the
crowd filed out through another door past

During the remainder of the day hut few of
the public sought the Vatican. Then came
the night bulletin and far larger crowds
than had gathered during the day wandered
to the Vatican in the cool of the evening.

Proposition to Combine the G
Glass Bottle Blowers and the

CINCINNATI, July 10.-The Flint Glass
Workers' national convention to-day came
to an agreement with the Glass Manufac
turers' Association to have their Joint con
ference committees meet at Star Island,
Mich., July 20, the object being then to
consider wage scales for several branches
of the business and also take some action
in regard to tariff changes on glassware
which. It is understood, may be proposed
In the next Congress. On this point the idea
would be to unite the forces of the manu
facturers and workers in resisting the
chants which might have a detrimental
effect on the glass industries of the coun

Dobbins will go with the workers' confer
The delegates are awaiting the coming
of the green glass bottle blowers before dis
cussing the proposed consolidation of that
organization with their own. Representa
tives of the green blowers who are here are
noncommital on ihe subject and 'it Is be
lieved that nothing will come of it. Things
which count against the consolidation are
the circumstances that the Green Glass
Bottle Blowers' Association has a reserve
fund of some J200.00U at present, while the
National Union of Flint Workers, while it
has more members, is not so well off finan
cially. D. A. Hayes, who is president of
the green blowers. Is understood to be
strongly opposed to the consolidation, and
so are the other chief officers. Because of
these things it Is said by some now that
the consolidation is sure to fall, though
there Is a chance that the organizations
may be able to agree on some plan of
federation which will leave them both in
I. j. ndent and with their regular national
officers, though acting together in matters
where their interests are mutual.

Special to the Indianapolis Journal.
WASHINGTON, July 10. The postofflce
investigation will come to an end the latter
part of August. This, at least, is the ex
pectation of those immediately in charge
of the inquiry. There is a possibility, of
course, that unexpected developments may
occur which might tend to lengthen the In
vestigation, but no such contingency is
anticipated in official circles. The big sen
sations of the Investigation have passed.
No men more prominent than those al
ready under indictment are involved in the
scandal. The authority for this statement
is one of the leading officials of the depart
ment, and he bases his conclusions on ab
solute knowledge of every phase of the In
vestigation. The lines now being followed
by Fourth Assistant Bristow lead to small
fry in the free delivery division and in
this connection indictments are expected
to be returned by the federal grand jury
next week. As far as can be learned no
further arrests of officials other than a
number in the free delivery division are
expected in the department in Washington.
The Inquiry into the operation of tne
General Manifold Company, with which
the name of Representative Sibley, of Penn
sylvania, is connected is being continued.
as well as an investigation of branches
of the service rvmrte from Washington.
But the officials are strongly of opinion
that the sensational phase of the scandal
has passed and that future developments
will not create any great excitement or in
terest. The principal incident of the day in con
nection with the investigation was the
presentation to the postmaster general of
a ietter from the third assistant explaining
the latter's explosive statements with ref
erence to the alleged charges connecting
his name with questionable transactions in
the award of contracts to the General
Manifold Company. It will be recalled that
Third Assistant Madden wrote a letter In
which he denounced as untrue the reports
that he had anything to do with the con
tract granted the Pennsylvania corpora
tion and intimating at the same time that
rumors might have been given out by the
rirst or fourth assistant. "The Madden in
cident created a flurry. The third assist
ant now explains that he was laboring
under great excitement. He states that
he had just arrived in Detroit his home
city. He had received the congratulation
of citlsens on the victories he had achieved
In connection with his ruling relating to
second-class matter. He was further con
gratulated on the fact that he had not been
drawi into the postal scandal. Immediate
ly following the Madden demonstration in
Detroit came the report that the third as
sistant was embroil d in the scandal and
that his office would be investigated.
"Literally speaking." said a department
official to-day. "Mr. Madden went up In
the air. He has now returned to terra
Orma." It is reported that Mr. Madden
has been verbally reprimanded by his su
periors. Whether he will be further re

LONDON, July 10. Lord Mayor Samuel
gave a luncheon at the Mansion House here
to-day in honor of Rear Admiral Cotton and
officers of the Cnited States European
squadron, now at anchor in Portsmouth
harbor. After the toasts to King Edward
and President Roosevelt had been received
with enthusiasm the lord mayor proposed
the health of Admiral Cotton, his officers
and the entire American navy.
"Gentlemen," said the lord mayor, "In
the course of my term of office It Is my duty
to entertain many people, but I wish to tell
you that this lunch was not officially In
spired. I could not let the American squad
ron go without showing them, and, I hope,
all the people of America, that ties of blood
and language are recognized here in the city
of London more warmly than in any other
part of the world. May the bonds which
bind the two countries ever grow closer,
and, if necessary, may we face the whole
I . . . i I ; 1 . ,
worm togeiner, whin uiways enueavonng,
by every means in our power, to maintain
the peace of the world."
Incidentally the lord mayor made a strik
ing reference to the Klshlneff massacre. He
said he was thankful that the United States
was not bound by diplomatic rules and eti
quette, and had not hesitated to raise its
voice against the barbarities of the world,
wherever they occurred.
Admiral Cotton made a graceful acknowl
edgement of the kindly welcome that the
Americans had received from the British
fleet and people, and added: "The squadron
is here by direct order of the President of
the United States, and as a messenger of
peace and good will. I am sure 1 speak for
the peoples of both countries when I say L
hope and I believe that the cross of St.
George and the stars and stripes will never
be waved but in amity and friendship and
for the peace of the world."
Prolonged cheering greeted the admiral's
Ambassador Choate, in toasting the lord
mayor, said he hoped the Americans would

them in being entertained in the historic
room. Alluding to the United States navy.
Mr. Choate said it was growing, thanks to

general and colonel. He rode to the Horse
Guards parade at 5:45 p. m., followed by
Queen Alexandra and Princess Victoria In
an open carriage. An immense crowd en
circled the parade and all the windows and
the roofs of the adjoining houses were
crowded with spectators. The Honorable
Artillery Company looked smart and busl
mssllke. It consisted of six companies of
infantry, two batteries of khaki -colored
guns and an up-to-date staff of cyclist dis
I ,ti h I arers, motor cycle courier.- and :k
The King followed the evolutions clouely
and at their conclusion said he was glad of
the opportunity to inspect the company for
the first time since his acccession, and re
marked that two hundred of the artUlery-
men would soon go to Boston to participate
in the anniversarv of th- Ancient and Hon
orable' Artillery Company of Boston, which
was an offshoot of their own corps. They :
would be received in the most cordial fash
ion and he hoped their visit would help to
cement the bond of friendshtip between the I
two countries, which he regarded as being
of so much importance.
The King gave a public exhibition of his
interest in the American officers by shak
ing hands with Rear Admiral Cotton and

EVANSVILLE, lud.. July 10 Evansvtlla
is once more an orderly city. Since the de
parture of the troops there haa 'been no
display of the spirit so rampant in the ear
ly part of the week. Members of the local
militia company, whose business takes
them abroad among the people, are ex
periencing some embarrassment in the way
of criticism and threats for the part the
local company took in the riot of Monday
right when seven people were killed and a
large number of others wounded, but they
refrain from being drawn into controver
sies. The persistence with which the grand
Jury is at work investigating the causes
th.U led up to the recent deplorable events
and returning Indictments. Is having the
effect of closing the mouths of the incen
diary element, for they are beginning to
understand that the authorities will not
tolerate such conduct as held sway hers
fcr almost a wek.
The saloons were closed till late this after
noon, and It was almost Impossible for one
to get a drink in the city. No one re
calls a time when such a condition ever
before existed here. The various places
of business occupied by negroes, which
were riddled with bullets,, remain Just as
they were left when the inhabitants es
caped from the frenzied mobs. The colored
people hctVG given these places wide berth.
The authorities are determined that they
shall not be reopened and conducted as

The people of the community do not take
kindly to the many articles that have been
published in which the recent riots ara
charged to the laxity of the authorities In
the enforcement of laws and that they are
directly tra-.-able to politicians currying
favor with the negro element in the hope
of securing their votes.
In reply to these attacks the Evening
Journal-News to-day says;
"There is one feature of the miserable
conditions that have prevailed in Evana
ville for the last few days that should not
escape notice, and thst is the criticism that
has been heaped on the authorities by men
who should have at least concerned them
selves with the lawlessness st hand, and
have attempted to correct evils that they
speak of afterward If they are here N
one of the critics of the legally constituted
authorities offered hia services to aid in dia
pelling mob rule ao far as Is known, yet
some of the critics 'live by the law and ara
sworn to uphold it in all of Its majesty.
"Some things are worth mentioning in
this connection to indicate to the unit
formed that Evansville is no mesn city:
"Who recalls a burglary worthy the
name within the past few years?
"Who recalls a holdup on the streets of
Evansville? The holdup man does not
thrive in Evansville.
"In what city in the L'nited State do
ladies walk the streets after sundown with
out ef irt as they do in Evansville. and be
free from molestation?
"A city with a record like that Is no mean
city and that is a true picture of Evans
ville. "It is also true that Evansville has its
dark side. What city has not? It wers
not a city without it. Evil characters flock
to cities; and if they did not there would
be no need for the vsst expenditure of
money to maintain police departments. And
it is remarkable to say that the causes lead
ing up to the riot and bloodshed is found
in the criticisms heaped on the authorities
and the critics know this as well as sll
others. Mm who busy themselves, criticise
lng authorities in perilous times are the
ones who have fed the flame of anarchy.
Some of them have busied themselves with
this sort of sedition for two years. Thejr
have attempted to make it appear thst the
authoritiea are weak and unsuccessful.
Sueh a course pursued constsntly has giv' n
license to those who have been led on by
this phsrifalcal method. To them belongs
the major portion of the blame for the up
rising of an element they have sought to
lead In thought, and now hold up their
hands in holy horror at the deeds they have
"The man who stands on the street cor-n-r
to pray is no b-tt' r to-day than he was
when he was denounced by the Savior

The funeral of John H. Bamett took
place this afternoon. He was the tenth
victim of Monday night's riot. Rarnett was
a barkeeper and the Barkeepers' Union

others who were shot, are in s bed way st

FIVE MORE ARRESTS.
