POPE PIUS DEAD.
The Church Bereaved.
Card. Di Pietro Elected
Successor to Pius Ninth
HOME, Feb. 7.The condition of the Pope
changed seriously for the worse during the
night, and His Holiness has already received
the last sacraments. The Cardinal Vicar has
been summoned to the Vatican, and an order
has been given to prevent any person not
specially authorized, from having access to
the Pope's apartments. Egress from the
Vatican is also prohibited. The foreign car
dinals have been summoned by telegraph to
Rome. Prayers for the Pope's recovery are
being offered in alfyho churches in Rome.
ROME, 6 p. m.The Pope died at 4:57 this
ROME, Feb. 7.The Pope's legs were so
much better yesterday he was able to
walk a few steps. It is believed this exertion
was fatal. A change for th9 worse occurred
at 4 o'clock in the morning, when the death
agony commenced. The Cardinals were as
sembled in council in the next room, but
all together, with the dignitaries of the Papal
court, were at his bedside at the moment of
death. Cardinal Panebianco admin
istered the last sacraments. All ambas
sadors accredited to the Vatican called to
make inquiries during the morning. King
Humbert also constantly sent for informa
tion. No one is now admitted to the Vati
can except the pontificial chamberlains, who
are charged with the office of guarding the
corpse. Monseignor Simceni, cardinal sec
retary of Btate, ordered the Ossereatore, the
Roman daily organ of the Vatican, to sus
pend publication until to-morrow. The city
is perfectly tranquil. The authorities have
taken all measures they deem necessary.
The police and municipal guard3 prevent
approach to the Vatican.
INCIDENTS OF LAST HOUKS.
LONDON, Feb. 8.There can be no doubt
of the Pope's death. The morning journals
fully confirm the previous reports from
Rome. A special from Rome states the news
of the Pope's death has already been official
ly announced, and gives the following par
The Pope at 8 o'clock Wednesday night
felt a sudden suffocation. He raillied several
times, but said to bis physician,
"DEATH WINS THIS TIME."
He was alternately lucid and wandering.
His last moments were lucid. He said:
"Guard the church I loved so well and
sacredly." The immediate cause of death
was the closing of the wound in the leg
which made humors mount into the lungs
and brain. Cardinals Manning and Howard
and many others were present at the death.
The conclave has commenced. Cardinal
Simceni has demanded troops and the gov
ernment has acceded to his request. The
ambassadors accredited to the Vatican have
gone in a body to
VIEW THE COBPSE.
The Italian government insures the inde
pendence of the conclave, and offers any
services that Cardinal Simceeni may de
mand. Other accounts say the cause of
death was mounting of water to the heart.
The Pope swooned, and was in extremes at
3'o'clock, but death did not occur till after
the time announced in the first dispatch from
Rome yesterday. The aspect of the city is
quiet to indifference, strangely contrasting
with its appearance on the death of King
Victor Emanuel a month ago.
LONDON, Feb. 8.There seems to be con
siderable conflict of statement as to the ac
tual hour of the Popes death. The Times
dispatch from Rome states that at 3 o'clock
in the afternoon an official dispatch was
sent to the chamber of deputies announcing
that the Pope died at 2:30 p. m. Up to sun
Bet the hour of the death was still uncertain.
His death was denied by Vatican Partisans,
although they agreed that the Pope was dy
ing or could not live through the day. The
SACBAMENT WAS EXPOSED
in St. Peters, but covered with a white veil
were told that the veil was to be
removed after the Pope's death. The veil
was not removed at 5 p. m, possibly from a
vain desire to conceal the event. The bar
racks surrounding the Vatican are
CBOWDED WITH TBOOPS.
This precaution is superfluous. No other
movement than that of curiosity is jjercep
tible among the people. The Fahfuella
positively announces the Pope dead at 5:45
p. m., while the Renter Telegram says 4:57
p. m. A special dated Rome, Thursday
night, says 3 p- m- the Pope was in articulo
mortis. He appeared dead to all but his
physicians, who could detect a feeble oscilla
tion of the heart. In all the churches the
sacrament has been exposed.
A Berlin dispatch says it is safe to say
Germany's polioy towards the conclave will
be one of non-interference if not indiffer
A Rome correspondant of the Times says
a report is in circulation that
has been elected pope by acclamption, but it
is not believed. The cardinal is young and
highly thought of, liberal and conciliatory,
but unlikely to have many votes.

At 9:20 p. m. Judge Whitaker finished the
reading of his charge to the jury and they
retired. The court room was cleared, and
even the attorneys for the defense had left,

head of his cane between his fingers. Then
the verdict was read, as follows:
NEW OBLEANS, Jan. 7, 1878.We find
Thomas C. Anderson guilty, and recommend
him to the mercy of the court.
[Signed] W. P. CONVEBSE,
Foreman of Jury.
The defense asked for the polling of the
jury. Each juror, after his name being
called, was asked, "Is this your verdict,
guilty, and a recommendation to the mercy
of the court." They all answered in the
affirmative. The jury was then discharged,
and the prisoner remanded to await the
sentence of the law. A few of Anderson's
friends at once surrounded him and saw him
off to jail.
Before recess the court referred to an arti

Wells had said he could give any amount of

the armistice was caused by tbe refusal

which they declared would bo destructive o:

The Daily Neics gives the statement that

SEASONS FOB ENGLAND'S SCABE.
LONDON, Feb. 7.In the House of Lords,
Lord Derby, foreign secretary, in reply to a
question about the morning's rumors, said
he received yesterday afternoon a telegram
fram Mr. Layard, dated 5th. At that time,
notwithstanding the armistice, the Russians
were pushing towards Constantinople. The
Turkish troops had been compelled to evacu
ate apart of the sea of Marmora, notwith
standing the protest of the Turkish com
mander, which the Russian general refused
to receive. The Russian general declared
that according to his orders it was necessary
that he should occupy Tchetaldja that day.
The Porte is in great alarm, and cannot
understand the Russian proceedings. Rep
resentations have been made to Grand Duke
It is also stated that the Servians have
destroyed a place called Vrauja, and are ad
vancing on the railway towards Salonica.
Five days have elapsed since the signature of
armistice and the preliminaries of peace and
the protocol has not yet reached the Porte,
which is in ignorance of some of the terms.
Another telegram dated yesterday and re
ceived last night, states the Russian govern
ment has requested that the Chakmadge
lines shall be abandoned, which will leave
Constantinople undefended. The Russians
had occupied in considerable force,
Tchataldja, which is part of the Turkish
lines of defense, extending across the
peninsula, and less than thirty miles from
It may be that steps are now being taken
by the Russians in pursuance of the con
ditions of the armistice, because we do not
know the conditions, but it appears that the
Porte is equally in ignorance, and is per
plexed as to the meaning of these move
ments. By a telegram sent this morning we
have asked Russia to give us some
explanation on the subject, and we have
called attention to the declaration made by
the Emperor to Col. "Wellesly in July last,
that he would not occupy Constantinople for
the sake of military honor, but only if it

I ONDON, Feb. 7.Sir Stafford Northcote,
chincelljr of the exchequer, in reply to an
inquiy of Lord Hartington, leader of the
liberals confirmed the report of the advance
of the Russians towards Constantinople. The
advance, the chancellor said may be in ac
cordance with the terms of the armistice,
but the Turks affect surprise. England has
asked Russia for an explanation, particularly
calling the Czar's attention to his statement
of July that Constantinople should not be
occupied unless the military situation ren
dered it necessary.
Sir Stafford Northcote pointed out that
Prince Gortschakoff 's despatches were not in
reply to the inquiry made by Lord Derby,
but to the inquiry by Count Schouvaloff as
to whether it was true the Russians were ad
vancing towards Constantinople, and had
taken possession of the fortified position
forming ports of defenses. He (Sir Stafford
Northcote) could only understand Prince
GortschakofFs denial to refer to the rumors
mentidfled in Count SchouvaloiFs question.
He was unable to say whether Prince Gorts
chakoff communicated with the Russian
commanders before sending the
denial There was reason to
believe the telegraph Lines were somewhat
interrupted, as some of Mr. Layard's tele
grams had been sent by way of India, and it
was evident from the irregular numbering

Senator Hamlin called up the House bill
to further suspend the operations of section
5,594 of the revised statutes in relation to
Guano islands, which was briefly discussed
and laid aside.
Consideration was then resumed of the
unfinished businessthe silver bill and Sen
ator Blaine spoke thereon.
He said gold and silver coin are the money
of the constitution. The organic law con
ferred no power on Congress to declare that
either should not be money. Congress,
therefore, has no power to demonetize silver
any more than gold, or than it has to de
monetize both of them. Therefore silver
has been demonetized wrongfully. He was
in favor of remonetizing it. If its coinage
has been prohibited, he was in favor of or
dering it to be resumed. If it has been re
stricted, he was in favor of having it en
Congress has the exclusive power to coin
gold and silver, and-regulate their value. If
Germany should remonetize silver and the
gates of the Latin Union re-open their mines,
silver would resume its former relation with
gold. He believes European countries will
be driven to full remonetization. They must
of necessity adopt their old ratio of 15}/
of silver to 1 of gold. Then we shall be
compelled to adopt the same ratio instead qf
our former 16 to 1. If we fail to do this, we
shall lose our silver, which will seek the
One difficult problem is how to reestab
lish silver without the co-operation of the
European powera, and as an advance move
ment to coerce them into the same policy.
If we can keep the silver dollar below the
current value of the gold dollar, we invite
Europe to take our gold from us, which will
force us to a single silver standard, and crip
ple our relations with leading countries. In
the present conditions of the current rates of
silver, free coinage of a dollar containing
412^2 grains, would give a legitimate profit
to the owners of bullion, which would de
fraud the man who is forced to take the dollar.
It assuredly follows that the free coinage
and circulation of this inferior dollar must
be at the expense of our gold coinage, which
will flow out with the certainty and resistless
force of the tides. What gain, therefore,
would we make in the circulating medium,
if, on opening the gate for silver to flow in,
we open wider the gate for gold toflowout.
Until Europe remonetizes silver, we cannot
afford to coin a dollar as low as 4123*j
grains. After Europe remonetizes silver on
the old standard, we cannot afford to coin a
dollar above 400 grains, because if we do
silver will leave us.
Senator Blaine argued the public injustice
and private wrong of making a debased sil
ver standard, which must inevitably fix a
lower standard of value for our paper
money, and urged a strict regard for the in
terests of the public credit, which is indis
solubly bound up with the interests of the
whole people. He repudiated the specific de
mand for the payment of the bonds in gold,
but said they must be paid in gold and not
in an inferior silver dollar, in accordance
with our public pledge to the public credi
In 1870 the banks used to pay the stand
ard of the then existing value as the silver
dollar of four hundred and twenty-five
grains would equally represent the dollar
of that date. Such a dollar will benefit in
turn the owner of billions, the holder of
coin and the government, and will assure
to our laborors a full dollar in pay for a
dollars worth of work.
For these reasons he advocated unlimited
coinage and legal tender for a dollar of that
weight. He did not expect the adoption of
his substitute in view of the precluding com
mitals and avowals of Senators. He was not
in line with either extremes, those who favor
the single gold standard or those whose
views, if sustained, would force us to a single
silver standard. We need both, and could
have them only by making each the equal
of the other.
He called attention to the fact that the
dollar proposed by the bill is lighter and less
valuable than the one coined by our mints
for the ignorant class of heathen laborers in
China and India, and in the name of common
sense and common honesty he asked the
American Congress not to force upon the
American laborer an inferior dollar which
the naked, famishing and degraded laborers
of India and China refused to accept. He
denied the assertion that the people demand
ed cheaper money. They demand an abund
ance of good money they do not want a
single gold standard. That will exclude silver
and benefit those already rich. Nor do they
wantajrilver standard that will expel gold
and not help those already poor. They want
both metals in full value and in equal power.
Senator Johnston said it could not have
escaped the attention of any one that a por
tion of tbe public press, especially at the
North, had indicated that the South stood
ready at any time to repudiate tbe public
debt of the United- States. He, Johnston,
wished to say for himself and on behalf of
his Southern colleagues on this floor, that no
fering and did not propose to undergo
the journey again. If they had
no better motive for upholding the national
honor than that of self-interest, they would
not do anything to bring discredit upon the
government. The people of the South
knew that their condition was'indissolubiy
mixed up with those of the North, and they
must uphold the honor and credit of the
government. All were in the same ship,
and the Southern people did not propose
to scuttle or wreck that vessel. So far as
they were concerned they proposed she
should have a prosperous voyage.
He urged that silver was one of the pro
ducts of the country, and it was the duty of
Congress to see that it was not injured.
There was a great popular demand for re
monetization. They believed it was demone
tized by fraud. They believed the act which
demonetized it was smuggled through, and
should be repealed. It was not the part of
statesmanship to be blind to the popular de
He denied that remonetization of silver
would drive gold out of the country, and
spoke at length -of necessity of a metallic
currency. Referring to the demonetization
of silver by Germany, he said all knew that
the German empire to-day, notwithstanding
the large indemnity received from France,
was in the throes of financial distress. This
did not speak well of the practical effect of
He then spoke of tbe value of silver to the
colored people of the South, and said they
didn't know anything abaut the value of
gold and did not appreciate paper. Re
monetize silvef and much of it would be ab
sorbed by them. Those who had freed the
negro ought to consider what they should do
for his practical benefit. Give the colored
people of the South the money they want,
and that would make them better citizens.
They would have something to work for,
and it would encourage industry.
Senator Hill then took the floor, but be

Morgan, upon whose motion the Senate
went into executive session. When the
doors were re-opened, the Senate adjourned.

ss Anthony's Lecture.
A very large audience greeted Miss Susan
B. Anthony at the Opera Houfe last night,
rnd the listeners were well entertained. Miss
Anthony is upwards of fifty years of age,
and has not the attraction of beauty which
goes far to entertain an audience, but she
interests her hearers by her force and ear
nestness. She speaks with great ease and
rapidity, and in her two hours' lecture last
night must have talked at least five columns
of THE GLOBE. Her lecture was an ear
nest and forcible appeal for the adoption of
a sixteenth amendment to the constitution
giving suffrage to woman. She contrasted
the degradation of the colored race previous,
to the adoption of negro suffrage with their
present condition, and claimed that women
could never obtain fair compensation for
her laber or equality with man before the
lawuntil the ballot was placed in their hands.
It was her mission to educate the women of
the country up to securing this great right.

NEXT STATE FAIR.
IT CAN RE SECURED BY ST. PAUL.
Minneapolis Refuses to Have the Exhibi
tionKing'* Remarkable Announcement
--Bound to Have a Fair of His Own
Effort to Have the State Association
Abandon the Field-It is Indignantly Re
When the St. Paul Chamber of Commerce
passed a resolution last Monday expressing
a willingness to aid Minneapolis in m*wg
the State fair a success, it was the general
impression that there was no question rela
tive to its location at that city. Develop
ments since then prove that wherever it is
held, it will not be at Minneapolis.
A GLOBE reporter met Mr. E. C. Ingalls, of
North Branch, last night, and learned some
of the inside history of the matter. Mr.
Ingalls is a member of the executive com
mittee of the State Fair Association.
He informs us that it was
the expectation of himself and other
members of the association to hold the next
fair at Minneapolis. The time had been
practically fixed for the first week in Sep
tember. On Wednesday morning last Wm.
S. King, President of the State Fair Associa
tion, met with Messrs. Ingalls, McHench,
Harris and Judson, of the executive com
mittee, aud notified them that he could not
accept tho presidency longer that he was
going to have a fair of his own at Minne
apolis on the first week in September
that he could not unite with the State
society because he would have to divide the
proceeds that if they would abandon the
the State Fair and turn in their State appro
priation of 81,000 towards paying premiums
he would give them $1,500 of the gate
money: that if they could do bettor he bid
them God speed, etc.
This announcement was an astonisher,
but the State Fair Association resents this
attempt to destroy them, and have resolved
to hold their fair at some point other than
Minneapolis, at the same time with King's,
he having really usurped their time. Where
it will be held is now an open question.
St. Paul is really the only proper point,
and we are justified in saying that the Asso
ciation wishes to locate it here if our citizens
will give them reasonable aid.
Meeting of the Catholic Total Abstinence
Armory Hall was packed last evening by
an appreciative audience, which was largely
composed of ladies, attracted by tho quarter
meeting of the Ramsey county Total Ab
Mr. John Thompson, the county chair
man, presided, and addresses were delivered
by Rev. J. Shanley and Mr. C. M. McCarthy.
The latter stated that his position as
secretary of the Grand National Temperance
Union, enabled him to affirm that the as
sociation consisted of 26 unions, comprising
over GOO societies, with a total membership
of over 100,000 the Minnesota Union em
bracing 08 societies aud a membership of
between 8,000 and 0,000. Mr. McCarthy al
so referred to the establishment of the
Catholic Temperance Mutual Insurance As
sociation of St. Paul, which was patented
after the ideas of similar institutions
organized in connection with secret
societies. Under its provisions the admis
sion fee would be $3, and it was believed the
assessments would not exceed $6 or $8 an
nually the benefit being $1,000 to the sur
vivors of deceased members.
The proceedings, which were inthuaiastic
and harmonious throughout, were pleasingly
varied by vocal choruses, quartettes and

RICHMOND, Va., Feb. 7.A bill for the re
adjustment of tbe public debt, under discus
sion in tbe Senate nearly a month, passed
to-day, 21 to 15. The action of the Senate
is a death blow to the forcible readjusters,
who are in a majority in the House, which
body is now considering a tax bill, which,
if adopted, would leave but a small margin
for the payment of any debt or interest.
The differences between the two Houses will
probably be settled by compromise.

The Codification 4'raud.
A bill has been introduced into the Legis
lature asking that body to authorize another
codification and compilation of the statutes
of the State. The bill provides that this
shall be done without expense to the State.
This proviso makes the bill look very inno
cent, but, nevertheless, there is good reason
to suspect there is a cat under the meal.
Should the work be authorized, a strong on
slaught will be made on the next Legislature
to buy the work at round figures. If the
law book men propose that the State shall be
at no expense in the matter, where is the
necessity of asking legislative authority for
making the compilation?
Ought to be Repealed.
Our legislators, as usual, are spending most
of their time in undoing what was done be
fore. The simple method of foreclosure by
advertisement, as formerly, instead of so
much humbugging court machinery, is likely
to be restored. Tne law of last year is found
to be more expensive as well as more bother
some and vexatious.
