There are three valid modes of dec
tlonby ballot by compromise And by
Declamation Election by ballot Is the
ordinary way Since the thirteenth
century elections have usually been
made In this way with reasonable dls I
patch Yet In times of disturbance the
t difficulty of obtaining the required two
Ihlrdi majority has protracted tho pro
I 0sedings over a long trioi In 170

New York and Drowalt Sun Mare of
Election by compromise Is when nil
Iho candidates agree to Intrust the
choice to a small committee of two or
three members of the whole body
Election by acclamation or quasi Inc
fplrnllon Is when nil the cardinals
with a sudden and harmonious consent
IH though inspired by divine spirit
proclaim some pomm pontiff with one
voice and without
any previous
vassing or negotiation whence fraud or
Insidious suggestion could be surmised
Neither of these two methods has been
often employed The usual course U a
ballot and the details
of the event arc
carried out In the following order
After the death of u pope the car
dlmils who arc absent are Immediately
to be summoned to the conclave by one
of the secreturles of the Snored col
lege and the election la to begin on the
tenth day after the death In what
ever city the pope dies there It must
be held Within the 10 days the con
clave must be constructed the papal
palace or In some other suitable edi
fice The large halls 9f the palace ore
so divided by small partitions as to
furnish a number of sets of apart
ments all opening on a corridor
which are distributed by lot two for
an ordinary cardinal and three for one
of higher rank
Here the cardinals must remain un
til they have elected a pope On the
tenth day a solemn mass of the Holy
Ghost Is said In the Vatican church
After It the cardinals form a proces
sion and proceed to the conclave tak
Ing up their respective apartments
For the rest of the day the conclave Is
open crowds of people Hock In and
circulate among the apartments and
corridors and the ambassadors and
delegates of foreign fttatcsbecldo their
personal friends visit the cardinals for
tho last time
In tho evening everyone Is turned out
except the cardinals and those auth
orized to remain with them and the
conclave Is cloeed to the outside
world This Is done under the miperln
tendance of two guardians of the con
clave one a prelate previously ap
pointed by the Sacred college who Is
called lie governor the other a lay
omelet designated the marshal Each
cardinal Is allowed to have two mem
bers of his household In personal at
tendance on him and thee are celled
conclavists A number of other at
tendants nnd minor officials carpen
ter a mason a sacristan a monk to
hear confession two barber eight or
ten porters and messengers and sever
nl othersare In the common service
of the whole body of cardinals
All the entrances to the building are
closed but one and thin one Is In charge
of olllclals who are partly prelates and
partly of the municipality whom husl
MHI It Is to Nt that no unauthorized
person shall enter and to exercise sur
veillance over tile food brought for the
cardinals lest any written communica
tion should be conveyed to them by thin
channel After three days the supply of
foal tent In Is restricted if five days
more elnpM without an election being
made the rule used to le that the car
dinals should from that time subsist on
nothing but bread wine and water Hut
this rigor has bten somewhat modified
by later ordinances Each morning and
evening the cardinals meet m the chap
nnd a secret ballet by means of voting
papers Is usually Instituted order to
ascertain whether any candidate has
the required majority of twothirds
