OF SISTER, WHO
SAYS "NOT YET"
Sick Man Tells of Vision
Which Tells Him His
Work on Earth Is
Cardinal Kopp Comes From
Breslau to Be Present
probabilities are paerorlv discussed. It
Is the general impression that never has
Ihere been a papal election so opc-n.
The pope has rallied in ■ wonderful
Jnanner from the serious attack from
which he suffered yesterday. He ap
peared to be on the point of death last
Jiigrht, but the physicians , report to
jiiirht indicates that the danger point,
for the present, at least, has been
Poctor AmicJ paid a visit to the sick
room shortly before midnight. Al
though the pope's temperature has in
creased slightly, he found the general
. tion satisfactory. He adminis
tered a heart stimulant nnd shortly
r.fter the pope went to sleep.
Throughout the day the temperature
"was normal, the pulse remained at
Rbout 85 and the respiration 26. This
indicated a considerable amelioration
in the bronchial symptoms, which was
further shown by easier breathing and
freedom for long periods from cough.
In addition, the pope was able to take
pome nourishment and he showed much
interest in what was happening about
Jiim. When Professor Marehlafava al
loWtßd the pontiff's nephew to enter the
Tnnm there was , an affecting scene. The
frail and aged pontiff and the youns
sind robust priest embraced tenderly,
the latter being unable to restrain his
at. finding the pope so changed
Professor Marchiafava repeated to-
Misrht his , assurances that if prudence
"were exercised the pope would recover.
He declared that his examination of the
ohest showed that the inflammation,
■which yesterday was marked on the
3eft side, has been checked and was
diminishing, while the bronchial sounds
"were less noticeable.
After his afternoon sleep it was ob
served that the pontiff looked very
bright and happy. Although he was
advised not to talk, he insisted on ex
plaining how he had just awakened
from a most wonderful dream.
He seemeii, he said, to have returned
lo his beloved Venice. Apparently he
Was in his patriarchal gondola on the
Grand Canal. Everything was blazing
With sunlight when, suddenly above St.
Mark's, the sky opened, and he saw a
vision of his dead sister. Rosa, who,
descending toward him, took his hand,
"The moment has not yet come for
>ou to join me. Your work is not yet
The sisters of the pope and his niece
rre happy in having the pope's nephew
■with them, as he is most hopeful for
the recovery of the pontiff to keep up
Cardinal Kopp, achbishop of Breslau,
5s expected to arrive soon. He has the
highest veneration for the pope, and
being deeply affected by the reports of
the pontiff's serious condition desires,
even if he can not see him, to be near
him in Rome.
Ml ST EXERCISF. (ARK ,
Professor Marchiafava. on leaving
•■ pope's apartments at 1:15 p. m.,
r examining him, said:
"I now trust that the pope's illness
Will have a favorable solution if it is
possible to induce the patient to take
proper care of himself."
Although the pope rested quietly dur
ing the forenoon, the physicians were
somewhat concerned about his increas
ing weakness. His heart, however,
phowed no symptoms of valvular lesion
The pontiff took little notice of those
a round him.
Tt now appears that the access of
roug-hing- suffero.i last night greatly
relieved the pontiff ami enabled him to
obtain a long and restful sleep.
Rome had been thrown into depres
sion at the announcement of this at
laik and maJiy thought the pope had
leached t!ie last extremity until Car
dinal del Val reassured them.
Doctor Amfci visited the pope twice
after the departure of Professor
Marchiafava this morning. According
to an understanding between the two
physicians he did not call Professor
Mnrrhiafava again, as he considered the
'« condition stationary.

Senator Grant Appointed to
Serve With Hewitt
acramento, April 14.
Senatorial desire to get under the
ropes in the Jordan investigation came
to the surface today, when it was put
up to the speaker to name a third menv
ber of the senate's end of the joint com
mittee on inquiry.
Senator Shanahan, who is a democrat,
refused to serve on advice of democrats,
who caucused yesterday and brought
up the representation on the Jordan in
quiry as one of the matters to be taken
under serious consideration.
President Wallace on behalf of the
senate finally named Senator Grant to
serve with Senators Hewitt and Kehoe,
and It is now a problem as to what new
testimony will be put before the joint
The board of control, through John
F. Neylan. its chairman, today turned
over all of the evidence adduced dur

Th<» official report of the board of con
trol will not be given out before the
investigation committee has a chance to
go over it carefully.
JORDAN TO BE H F. 1.1) ACCOUNTABLE
It Is understood that the board will
hold Jordan accountable for misuse
use of his office in the matter of giving
out public records and obtaining fees
without turning the money into the
Ftate. The Teport will criticise se
verely the action of the secretary ef
state for permitting his employes to
use their office for the purpose of mak

Senator Hewitt today said:
WILL WEIGH EVIDENCE
"I am not going to try this case till
It comes before the committee. I have
heard that Mr. Jordan thinks the com
mittee might be prejudiced against him.
T am sure this is not true. We -will
weigh the evidence carefully and try to
give both sides an absolutely fair hear
The technical charge against Secre
tary Jordan will be "misdirecting fees

state treasury for service In copying
state records. -.
Through his attorney, Willis Jordan,
his brother. Secretary Jordan will con
tend that no fees have been misdirected,
as there were no copies of state records
The legislative committee. It was
learned tonight, will make Mrs. Anita
Brewer, witness for Secretary Jordan,
answer questions that she evaded be

Mrs. Brewer many times said in her
testimony, "That is my personal busi

The "Bagby sale of drugs bill" was
paaesd today in the assembly. This

tion of eligibility of the Japanese to
So far all decisions of record, mostly j
in western courts, have held that the
Japanese were not eligible to natural
ization, not being such white persons
nor persons of African descent as are
mentioned in naturalization laws as
being alone eligible to admission to
citizenship. 'The issue has never been
tested before the supreme court of the

The importance of a determination !
of the question and Its relationship to
the alien land legislation now pend
ing in California, lies in the fact that,
as that act now stands before the
legislature, any alien entitled to apply
for naturalization may own and lease
land in the state, so that a decision
favorable to the Japanese contention
would defeat completely the purpose
of the legislation so far as it might
be aimed at the Japanese.
