ROME, July 23,-^From sunrise until
sunset to-rliy thousands passed before
the body o? Lico XIII. lying In state in
the basilica of St. Peter's. It was origi?
nally Intended that this opportunity pub?
licly to view tho remains should extend
through three days, but to-night -the
ISssoclnted Press correspondent learns
that the time Is likely to bo curtailed,
and that tho funeral may occur Friday
Instead of Saturday night, owing to the
evidences that decomposition Is setting in.
This is due to to-day's severe h?at, from
which no embalming, however perfect,
could completely protect the body.
The will of the dead Pope was opened
at to-day's meeting of tho congregation
of cardinals. It consists of thirty-six
pages, In the handwriting of Leo XIII;
and leaves all tho properly of which he
died possessed to his successor, for the
use of the church. To each member of
his family he leaves a present, to be
chosen from the- valuable objects In his
apartment. Similar presents aro be?
queathed to his physicians. The total
amount of property which he left is not
BODY TERRIBLY SHRUNKEN.
The prevailing impression of those who
to-d'iy passed before the iron gates of
the Chapel of Iho Sacrament to view
the remains was one of intense pity,
combined with a. certain sense of horror.
Th? body was tilted up on the catafalqua
in order" that, till might se? the terribly
shrunken face. An ordinary skull In a
frame of cold, lying In the midst of a
mass of red robes, could scarcely have
been more typical of death.
Except at sunrise, when the ,crush
threatened a panic, all those who wished
It. had an opportunity of entering St.
An Important political factor was Intro?
duced into tho ceremony by the en?
trance Into , St. Peter's of Italian sol?
diers, who remained there throughout the
day to preserve order. Their presence
there In such a capacity, unprecedented
In the history of modern Italy, is im?
portant as an Indication of hotter rela?
tions between the government and the
Vatican, as it was by the consent, If
not by the desire, of the Vatican au- j
ihorltles that thoy to-day employed tho
troops of the quirlnal In papal territory.
Another feature which Is causing com?
ment along the same lines is the fact that
Cardinal Oreglin, In receiving a group of |
the cltv fathers or Rome, who represent
the clerical party, charged them to thank
also their liberal colleagues for the mani?
festations of svmpathy which they showed
during the illness of tho Pope. The car
dlnal. continuing his conversation, indi?
cated special satisfaction over similar
manifestations coming from several con?
stituted bodies of the. kingdom of Italy,
such ns communiai councils and provin?
cial deputations, including that of Rome,
which is presided over by Prince Felice
"It Is nn unexpected tribute,* exclaimed
tho enrdlnal, "which no one would havo
imnglned twenty-five years ago."
The most Important matter before the
meeting of the congregation of cardinal^
was a proposition presented by Cardinal
Oreglla to send a note to the diplomatic'
body accredited to the Holy See for the
purpose of representing to tho powers
tlie condition of tho papacy slnco the loss
of Its temporal power and the transfer
of th? capital of tho Italian Government
to Rome. From what leaks out it ap?
pears that tho proposition provoked con?
siderable discussion, and that Cardinal!!
Stelnhubor, Mathieu and Vlvles y Tuto
favored the dispatch of a most energetic
noto concerning the question of reclaiming
the papal lights. Cardinals Agllardl and
Seraflno Vannutelll, on the contrary, ad?
vocated a milder wording of this doc?
ument, which, they contended, should
maintain the historical pretensions of the
Holy See, but In temperate language. The
majority of the congregation decided to
pursue a middle course, and entrusted
Cardinal Merry Del Val with the duty
of drawing .up the document for submls1
slon to another meeting of tho congrega?
After the will of Leo XIII. had been
opened it was the intention of tho cardi?
nals to maintain tho strictest secrecy con?
cerning Its contents. The earlier portions
of the testament include tho recommenda?
tion which tho testator addressed to his
executors, Cardinals Hampolla, Mocennl
and Creloni, on the best way to continue
tho religious Impulse given to tho church,
as well as the policy followed by the Holy
See during the latter years.
REAVES WEALTH TO SUCCESSOR.
The document then enumerates all th?
property which Leo possessed and pro?
vides that it shull all go to hla successor
for tho benefit of the Church, Including
oven the presents which might perhaps bo
considered personal, rather than gifts to
tho Pontiff, as such. Tho money which
the Pope left Is In a closed safe in his
bed-room, tho keys having been given to
different persons mer.tioped in the will
All the land purchased and buildings
erected for institutions personally found?
ed by Leo are put In tho name of the
Holy See to avoid possible claims from
reatlves, as the Popo possibly remember?
ed that some time after tho death of Pius
IX- the hitter's nephews instituted a
suit ?gainst the Church, claiming fifteen
thousand francs a.s their portion of his
estate. The will ends by providing that
hla remains shall be buried in tho basilica,
of St. John Lateran in the tomb, which
?he had already chosen.
At 0:30 A. ?L, v. solemn pontifical re?
quiem mass was celebrated In St Pe?
ter's for the repose of the soul uf Loo
XIII. The crowd was kept constantly
moving within the wooden barrier, but

Manassas Horse Show
AN EXCELLENT EXHIBITION
Senator Daniel and Governor Monta?

(Special from a Staff Correspondent.)
MANASSAS, VA.. July 23_There were
five thousand people or more at the sec?
ond and last day's exhibition of the
Prince William Horseman's Association
to-day. Several hundred came down from
Washington. A special trsin brought as
many more from Harrisonburg, Front
Royal and intermediate points, and regu?
lar trains brought largo crowds from
points ar. far south as Lynchburg.
I havo heard! many horFemc-n o? ex?
perience say to-day they never saw a
more excellently aranged horse show
than this one. The close attention given
by the management to every detail made
the exhibition ono to be enjoyed by the
spectator, whether a horseman or not.
The horses shown were very fine. The
performances were of the best- The rid?
ing was. on the whole, considerably below
what is generally seen nt a Virginia
horso show. That of Miss Dorothy
Henry, of Winchester, created greatest
applause. "She rides like a cavalryman,"
was the comment of an old Confederate
who saw her from the members' stand.
Dr. J. C. Quinlan, -who has charge of
tho government stables at Washington,
and buys horses for the government,
acted as veterinarian for the associa?
tion. He spoke very highly of the char?
acter of the horseB being raised in Vir?
ginia now, if those shown at Manassas
be taken as samples.
Dr. Quinlan will be the veterinarian
at. tho Front Royal and Berryville shows.
Governor Montague and Senator Danl?l,
Hon. John F Ryan, of Loudoun, Speaker
of tho House of Delegates; Colonel Moses
D Green, member of the Houb? from
Fauquler, and several other distinguished
visitors received much attention to-day
I do not think msny of the men and
women present failed to shake hands
with the Governor, and many old Con?
federates brought their boys and girls up
to have them meet Senator Daniel
I have rarely seen any man so thor?
oughly enjoy himself as did Senator
Daniel to-day. From the time he reached
the ground this morning until he left this
afternoon, after 4 o'clock, he was con?
stantly surounded by old comrades in
arms,' with whom he recalled the days
"There Is no greater Joy in life than
meeting these old friends," said Sena

TO OPEN PORTS
State Department Has Heard
Nothing of Prince Crjlng
(By Associated Press.!
WASHINGTON, D. C, July 23,-The
State Department has heard nothing re?
cently from Mr. Conger respecting the
Manchurlan negotiations, so It Is sug.
gested that the Pekin report to th.3
effect that tho Chinese government,
through Prince Chlug, has declined to
open any Manchurlan ports ref?Ts to a
phase of the negotiations dating about
two weeks back. The reason for this sug?
gestion is a knowledge on the part of tho
officials here that before Secretary Hay\s
departure for hla summer home iho Chi?
nese government actunlly did pledge it?
self to open two or more poils In Man?
churia. It is not deemed proper hero to
indicate how these pledges wero coniv%ed,
whether through Mr. Conger at Pekin or
the Chinese minister here, but as to the
fact there can be no question.
Respecting the plea attributed to China
in the Pekin dispatches to the effect that
she . ennpot open the JUanchurian ports
because they arerTh tu? possession of
Russian troops and officiais. It Is pointed
out here that as several weeks and even
months must necessarily elapse before
the new treaty can be made and become
operative there will be ampl0 opportunity
for tho Russians to evacuate tho clasired

Not for a long time has such a runaway
been known. Mrs. Wilkinson and a little
boy. named Joe Otey, started up-town
yesterday afternoon. The hoir?o took
fright in tho bottom below Fifteenth and
Broad, and started to run up tho hill.
Several gentlemen noticed that the horse
was going much faster than usual for
climbing such a hill as that, but they
had no Idea that It was running away.
.They could easily have stopped It.
Mrs. Wilkinson did not then consider the
animal unmanageable, but. the moment
she reached the top of the hill and the
horse started off at mad speed, she saw
the situation. She kept control of herself
and the horse, guiding it clear of the
trolley poles In the middle of the stro'et
until Fifth Street was reached. Here the
animal dashed the buggy against a
trolley pole, and Mrs. "Wilkinson was
thrown out by the Jar, falling out o\?er
one side of the dash-board. She struck
on the left side, nnd her head, face and
body'were cut and bruised. The head and
face suffered most. One cut was received
in the side.
The horse, boy and buggy continued up
tho street with speed scarcely lessened.

bulance of Bennett was summoned, and
after the cuts on the lady's face and
head had been bandaged by the doctors
she was taken homo In the ambulance.
All the wliile she lay perfectly motionless

Another Car?Believed to Bb
the Last Attempt to Ren?
der People Afraid to
Ride on Cars.
By what seems to have been a. precoa?
certed plan by an organized gang of as
sasslngs, lawlessness was resumed in its
most vloious form in connection with the
street oar strike last night, cars in several
parts of the city being: attacked either
by means of some powerful explosive
placed on tho tracks or by rifle or pistol
shotB from concealed assassins in th?
dark, or by means of large stones hurled
from the blackness of night at motormen.
Two oars, one near the Eeservoir, and
another on the northeastern suburbs on
the Oakwood Une, were almost simul?
taneously damaged by some powerful ex?
plosive, considerably shocking the motor?
man In on? case, blowing off the traps in
the car floors on-er the motor on one oar,
and shattering sixteen transom glasses,
around the roof of another car. Motor
man Metersmlth, in charge of Lakeside
car No. 120, bound for the Broad Street,
terminal, had a thrilling escape from
death by a rifle bullet, fired from the
darkness as the car was approaching the
north end of the first Street viaduct about
A Lady is Injured.
About the same hour a lady whose
name could not be learned, and who wan
a passenger on a. Clay Sti-eet car, we.ii
struck on the nnkle with a stone throini
at the car sjon after It turned from
Broad Into Twenty-ninth Street^SJio 'was
assisted to her homo by a gentleman on
tho car, and, though palnfuly Injured, is
not at all seriously hurt. A little later
on tho same Une a large stone was thrown
at Motorman Lewis in charge of a Clay
Street car, but tho missile missed its
mark by several feet. Reports were re?
ceived also of stono throwing in Fulton,
but no one was hurt.
Officials of the company are of opinion
that the explosions which damaged the
cars in East and West End were of a
bunch of torpedoes placed in such close
Juxtaposition that all exploded simultan?
eously. It Is argued with force that had
dynamite been used, as was at f.Tst sup?
posed, its force would have been .ex?
pended downward, and that a hole would
have been torn In the earth. No such
manifestation of tho force of the explo?
sion was discovered. On the other hand
It seems hard to conceive how the explo?
sion of railway torpedoes could have been
so heavy as to break the flange of the
wheel on the Oakwood car and to shatteu
almost eivery transom glass on the Main)
No Passengers Hurt.
The Main Street car had Just left the
Reservoir and was on the street leading
from near the Aquarama to Main Street.
Just after making the turn northward
toward Main. Motorman Wallace was ln\
cbnrge of this cpr and wns unhurt. Th*i
fnre register showed three fares when th^
car was examined In the barns after the
accident, hut who the passengers wer?
could not be learned. None of them wero
Injured, however. It was said that there
was but ono pasenger on the Oakwood
car, a man, and that he escaped Injury.
Motorman Tutwller, In charge of,ear No.
22, was sufferlns; considerably from the
shook, and was relieved from further
duty last night.
It is believed that this Is the last flicker
of lawlessness? nnd that hereafter, suoh
enses will entirely disappear.
Considerable excitement and Indignation
was aroused lnt't night about 10 o'clock!
when It became known that'an attempt;
hud been made to blow up a Laurel Streao
car on tho Oakw aod line In the extremo
northeastern suburb. Almost immediate-i
Iy name tlve not less startling announce-]
ment that a Main Street car had beer
attacked with oxploslves on Strawberry1
Street, at almost precisely the same houi
as tho attempt to wreck tho Oakwood car
was made. Prom almost every point then
came reports of cars being stoned, and
of one being fired on.
Police on the Scene.
Ai- soon as the explosion on the Oak*
wood lino was reported a detail of polle?
from the First District was hurried to
the scene, which proved to he tho vicinity
of Thirty-third and Q Streets. The offi?
cers reported that the explosion appeared
to be of dynamite. From other sources,
however, It was learned (hat the force
of the explosion was exerted upward, and
not downward, whereas dynamite exerts
ts force downward. Had dynamite been
ured tho track would have been dam?
aged and a hole blown In the earth. No
such evidences were found. On the con?'
trary, the truck wuy blackened, as if a
largo torpedo or several of them had.
bean exploded simultaneously. Still, tor?
pedoes would hardly have exerted such
a powerful force upward, as was shown
in the results of the explosion. The trap
doors In tiie floor of the car, about the
eertter of the aisle, which are raised t?
reach the motors, wero blown upward
and entirely off of the openings they are
designed to rover. A wheel under the
from truck had the flange broken by the
explosion, but the car wns ahie with
difficulty to get back to the Ret-ervolr
tarns. This was oar No. ?2 of the Oak
wood line. The motors were not damage!
by the blow-up. ' Motorman Tutwller, in
charge of the car, felt tho force of the
gjioelt. anrt though no; otherwise injure?
suffered somewhat from the shook. There
