live with his wife. This promise he
failed to keep, leaving the county

An Important Appointment Mad
by Ilia Hollneaa.
Home, July 6. The text of the bul
letin issued thin - uorning by the
pope's physicians is as follows:
"Although his holiness passed the
night almost without sleep, he is not
so uneasy as he was yesterday. The
pope has been benefited by the injec
tion of digitalis and camphor and the
condition of his chest is normal
There is a slight cough, with some
catarrhal emission. Sufficient nour

is still weak, but not intermittent, and
the temperature is below normal. The
condition of the august patient, there
fore, can not be described as better,
but it is certainly no worse.
AX IMPORTANT A PPOIXTMEXT.
With the Vital Flame Flickering; the
Pope Mnkei an Appointment.
Rome, July 6. The amelioration in
the pope's condition, 'Monday morn
ing, was unnatural, considering the
gravity of his illness, and it was
feared that possibly it was only the
last flickering of the vital flame.
During this blighter interval the
pope resumed his habits of command,
and insisted on giving orders for the
preparation of the brief appointing
Monsignor Volponi, actually secre
tary of letters to princes, as secre
tary of the consistorial congregation,
a post vacant owing to the promotion
of Monsignor Nocella to the cardinal
ate. The importance of such an ap
pointment, especially at the present
moment.is manifest when it is consid
ered that on the pope's death the seo
retary of state ceases to exercise his
functions, which are assumed imme
diately by the secretary of consistor

Rome, July 6. As the pope object

Dr. Lapponi arranged to impregnate
the whole atmosphere of the room
"That is much better," said the
pontiff; "before, I felt as though I
had lost my liberty."
Although Dr. Lapponi continually
recommends the patient not to speak,
and to pay no attention to what is
passing outside, the pope refuses to
abandon participation in what is go
ing on. He said, smiling, to Dr. Lap
poni: "I know you say this because
of your affection for me, but either

The Word! of a Brooklyn Protest
ant Episcopal Miniater.
Xew York, July 6. Rev. Dean Bab-
bitt, rector of the Brooklyn Protest
ant Episcopal Church of the Ephipany,
in the course of his sermon said:
"I am informed that the great pon
tiff of Rome is passing away. It is a
solemn moment in the history of the
world and of Christendom. As a Pro
testant who values his Protestantism,
it is not unfitting that I should ex
press, nevertheless, ni' sympathy for
the Koman Catholic church in its loss
of a great prelate, leader, guide and
councilor, whose effect on all Chris
tendom has been profound."
The only persons allowed in the
pope's bedroom Monday morning, be
sides the doctors and attendants, were
Cardinal Rampolla, Monsignor Bisleti,
the master of the pontifical chambers,
and Brig-Gen. Count Camillo Pecci, of
the Noble Guard, a nephew of the
pope. .The pope conversed for a long
time with Count Pecci, even rising
and walking- about the room for a few
minutes, leaning on his arm. The
pontiff on this occasion remarked: -
"Now, I am ready to depart, hav
ing settled all my affairs. I feel I
have done all in my power for the
good of the church and of humanity."

Rome, July 6, 5:50 p. m. The pope

The slight improvement in his condi

far from removed, the feeling at the
Vatican is calmer. Another cansulta

7:30 p. m., after which a bulletin will

Monday Morning- 5w Bat Little
Sig-ns of the Relgrn of Mob Law
of Sunday and Sunday Night.
Evansville, Ind., July 6. This city
was quiet Monday and there were no
signs of the mob violence that agi
tated all citizens Sunday night. Busi
ness is moving- in the even tenor of
its "way. An examination of the busi
ness district shows that much dam
age was done to stores and especially
to the hardware houses, many of
which were entered and robbed of
guns and ammunition. Thousa-nds of
shots were fired during- the night, but
so far aa learned no one was killed,
although numbers of people are said
to have been wounded.
Several negToes were caught by
mobs and almost beaten to death be
fore the police could save them.
The chief demonstration of the
night was an attack upon the count'
jail between ten and one o'clock.
Several thousand men crowded the
street before the building and finally
obtained entrance through the forti
fied g-ates to the yard where they be-
p-an to batter the windows of the jail.
Efforts to prevent this were futile and
the crowd held sway, the police of the
city being- occupied with holding- the
sightseers from invading the front
part of the building- and ransacking
the sheriffs residence.
After the mob was thoroughly sat
isfied that Lee Brown, the murderer
of Patrolman Massey, was not in the
building, they separated into squads
of 40 or 50 and paraded the down
town streets until daylight, shoot
ing promiscuously and visiting- the

Cincinnati, July 6. A Times-Star
dispatch from Evansville, Ind., saj-s
the city is quiet, but further trouble
is anticipated at night, as the negroes
are arming themselves to prevent a
repetition of Sunday night's ill treat
ment. It is reported that a meeting
has been called in that portion of the
city where most of the negroes live,
for the purpose of making organized

and will be in readiness for any dem

From the site of the break in the
dam at Oakford to Wilmerding, tak
ing in the towns of Jeanette, Penn,
Larimer, Greensburg-, Irwin, Burrell
and Manor, the awful power of the
rushing waters following the break

sides. The damage to property
will not be less than $700,000, while
the number of lives suddenly blotted
out is still uncertain, the estimates
running- all the way from 50 to 150.

A Second Dniu Breaks.
Almost simultaneously with the
breaking of the dam in' Oakford park,
the Fort Pitt dam, about half a mile
north of this place, gave way, carrying-
wide destruction along the valley
of Bull creek, which empties into the
larger stream of Brush creek, in the
lower part of Jeanette. The Fort
Pitt dam serves to supply the Fort
Pitt glass works at that point. It
was rebuilt about eight years ago,
when it was torn down in the same
manner as on Sunday. To add to the
alarm caused by the disaster in Oak
