Judge Holdum's injunction restrain

Canal Treaty Will Probably
Colon, July 19. The latest news
frcm Bogota is to the effect that there
has been a marked change in favor of
accenting the Panama canal treaty.
Thirty-four congressmen are now

change in the ranks of the latter. It
is likely that a modification of the
treaty will be asked for. This will in

NO LONGER,. ANY DOUBT THAT
POPE IS SUFFERING FROM
MOST COMFORTABLE DAY YET
RECOVERY IMPOSSIBLE, BUT HE
MAY SURVIVE FOR SEV-
MAKE DEATH AGONIES LESS ACITE
ABOUT ALL MEDICAL SKILL CAN
DO FOR THE DISTINGUISHED
Rome, July 19.The pope had the
most comfortable day yesterday since
his illness began. He is passing one
of the rallies which are peculiar to the
last stages of cancer, for there is no
longer the slightest doubt that that is
the dread malady from which he is
suffering. The following medical
statement of the case may be accepted
In 1899 a skin tumor on the pope's
right side was extirpated by Dr. Maz
zoni. Its nature could not be ascer
tained because the pope did not wish
it to be examined, but he kept it for
some time and then threw it away.
His present illness was at first diag
nosed as pneumonia. Dr. Rossani,
when he was called in consultation,
thought "it was pleurisy until the
pleuric fluid was withdrawn.
Then the physicians found that it
presented neither clinically nor mi
croscopically the characteristic of the
ordinary liquid produced by pleurisy.
Malignant or Cancerous
neoplasms, which left no doubt that
the tumor of 1899 had been of the
same nature, and that the malady had
returned in a ne,^ location.
The second puncture yielded a
liquor with such a large proportion of
blood that the physicians were un
willing to operate tor the third time
when Thursday's difficulty in breath
ing suggested it, because there was
the greatest danger that another
drainage would produce falal pleuric
Recovery is impossible, but it is
not unlikely that the pope will sur
vive for several days. Such are the
facts of the situation, which the some
what misleading bulletins of the past
ten days have concealed. Serious
comments on the case are current
among the medical profession here,
which promise interesting conse
quences. It may be said on behalf of
the pope's physicians, whether their
first diagnosis was mistaken or not,
that their treatment lias been ade
quate and skilful". It would not have
i been radically different if the
True Nature cf the Disease
had been known at the o'Ufeset. More
over, it is good nursing that is chiefly
I prolonging the lite of his holiness.
I Nothing could exceed Dr. Lapponi's
assiduity and skill in this respect. It
is not improbably that the end may
yet come suddenly by internal hem
"I cannot say that the pope is bet
ter, but he is no worse."
In these words Dr. Lapponi last
evening summed up the pontiff's con
dition at the end of the second week
of his illness, in all the varying peri
ods of which the pontiff scarcely has
had a quieter day than yesterday,
with the result that last night's bulle
tin declares him to be a little less de
From last nieht's examination of the
pope it appears that the liquid in the
pleura remains at about the same
level. As his holiness is reduced al
most to a skeleton, if a new operation
is decided on it will not be because of
any hope of saving the patient's life,
but simply for the purpose of render
ing the death agony less acute.
