TILL HANGING
BY A THREAD.
BIHIPB OF LEO XIU MAY END AT
ANY MINUTE.
Occupants of the Vatican Overcome by
onstant Watching and Fatigue.
Rome, July -1.15 a. .--The
life of Pope Leo continues to bang
by a thread, with the expectation
that at any moment may bring the
.,Unal catt.9trophe. Yet the wonder.
al I vitality of the remarkable old
man is combating a complication of
diseases which would endanger a
Atrong man in the prime of life. It
-ould appear that everyone in the
.1atican is-obliged to give away to
Nverpowering fatigue, so munh more
ranq.uil is in the palace than out
side, people being still congregated
on the piazza of St. Peter's as this
dispttch was filed. The corner of
he ralace which remained lighted
:he longest was the - apartment of
3Jardinal*Rampollo, where the lights
were extinguished only a short time
after those in the room where Mgre
Volponi, one of the Pontiff's most
intimate friends, is lying in a seri
one condition as a result of the at
tack of syncope that he suffered to
day. Pope Leo, as though he had
second sight, has asked several times
why Mgre Volponi has not been
to see him. Naturally the condition
of Mgre Volponi has been kept from
the Pope.
Throughout yesterday the reports
from the sick room alternated with
fears and hopes. At times rumors
of the gravest character gamed our.
rency. Out of the mass of contra
dictory reports the essential features
of the Pope's actnal condition ire
indicated in the bulletins issued at
9:45 yesterday morning and at 8:15
last evening bearing the signatures
of the two attending physicians.
Their official bulletin was supple
mented in the course of personal
conversation irn which tLey showed
that they entertained scarcely any
hopes of recovery. Yet they al
ways qualified their statements, set.
ting forth the remarkable constitu.
tional strength and indoiiitable en
ergy of the pationtt as the most
striking evidence of his almost su.
perhuman will. They instanced the
dying man's leaving the bed during
the morning and t aking several
steps, unaided save by a cane, to an
arm chair. When this became known
many were disposed to criticise the
doctors for permittiing such an ex
hansting effort, but it was explained
that the entire abseunce of fever, the
temperature b)eing even below nor
mal, eliminated the danger- of syn
cope from this exertion. Moreover,
the attending physicians recognized
that they were battling with a man
of iron will, who does niot know the
meaning of restraint. Fortuniiately,
all the climatic condlitions ini Rome
for the time using are fav 'rable to
Athe sufferer. The enicouraging con
dit.ions are further anums'ntedl by
the constant use of arii ilemnl mieans
of exhileration, ineliidinrg a st eady
supply of oxygen.
Except for tihe brief timnie he passed
in the arm chair, the Pope hliy in bed(
throughout thme day, shifi inrg hiis pos5i
t ion frequently3 wit hont assist aince,
and occasionally tiaking a1 small
draught of diluted wine with the
yolks of eggs. The only solid food
he has taken is calves brains and
meat broth.

zoni said in a conversation following
the issuance of the 8 15 p mn. b)ulletini
that, while I ih Pope's condition
still continued desperate, recovery
was niot- entirely imipssible.

FOR UNIVERSAL EDUCATION.
A Declqration of Principles, of the Students
Attending the Summer School
of the South.
University of Tennessee, Knoxville,
July 4, 1908 -On this day, sacred
as marking the 127 year of th Re.
public, we, the teachers of the .ath,
representing its every section and its
every form of educational effort, come
together in reverent memory of all
that this Republic of Commonwealths
has been, in patriotic love for all
that it is to us and in unfaltering
faith in all that it shall be to the
men and women after us. Once more,
relying upon the God of our fathers,
we pledge ourselves in heart and
soul and mind to the service of the
free democracy of equal men. Again
we recall, with a profound sense of
gratitude, the sacrifice, the toil, the
courage, the faith of those who have
gone before us and made this rich
ness ours. With this sense of grati
tude comes the realization that we
are unworthy of our inheritance un
less we strive without ceasing to hand
it down not only unimpaired, but
bettered, enriched and broadened till
its beneficent influences shall be
brought to every child born in the
Republic. We bring to mind, more
over, what of power and influence
the men and women of our own sec
tion have contributed to make this
inheritance so precious. It is there
fore, meet that we should think over
once more on this State day the en
terprise and energy of Southern men
in setting and making habitable the
fairest portion of this continent, the
wisdom of Southern statesmen in
shaping and moulding this Union of
States and laying the foundation of
democracy, the courage and heroism
of Southern soldiers, of wars within
and wars without; the sacritice, the
patience, the fortitude of Southern
men and women in facing arid solv
ing problems of peace; problems no
less momentous in their results than
the battles of war. With all these
memories crowding upon us and ap
pealing to us we commit ourselves
anew to an unfailing belief in the
principles of denrocracy and to an
abiding love for this Union of States
as its only proper home. As teach
ers and educators we declare:
1. That the fundamental princi.
ples of democracy is to be found in
its faith in the individual man and
in all that he may be to himself, to
the family, to the State to the Church.
II That the child problem of the
democracy has, therefore, to do with
the training-the training of head,
of hand, of heart-of each child born
into the State, so that he may do the
work of life with the least waste of
opportunity and material.
III. That the school, the college
the un iversity are the supreme sources
for calling forth and training the
wealth latent in childhood, so that it
may become a contributing part of
the larger wealth of society.
IV. That all questions with wvhich
we of the South are dealing-ques
tionis touching industry, commerce,
religion, literature, the social and po.
lit ical order-all wait on thre su premre
question of education and cannot be
s0 oe until the darkness of ignior
anmce and prejudice give way to thre
light, of intelligence and wisdom.
V. That the appalling mass of il
literacy and ignorance wvhich have
come to us as an historical inheri
tance instead of oppressing called
to us in trumpet tones to (10
bat tle in the highest cause that we
as a great and heroic, a brave people
have ever been engaged in.
VI. That, with the keen realiza
tion of what we have to do and of the
nature of the struggle we are enter
ing upon, the resources of all the
States should be pledged to the main
tenance of this struggle till the vic
tory shall have been won.
VII. Tihat this struggle cannot
be successfully carried onl without
certin essential t hinigs and for these
we make appeal to our patriotic finl
low citizens every where:
1. Higher standards and tihe best
eq1uipment for the preparation of
teachers in scholarship and profes
sional training.
2. Better school houses in town
and countr,rv longer school terms and
larger salaries, so that teaching may
in truth- become a profession and in
Vito the best talent.
3. Expert *upervision in countr)
as well as in town, with country su
perintendents trained for the grea
interests committed to their keeping
4 Such consolidation in the rura
districts as will bring the best with
in the reach of every child.
5. A deeper, broader, a saner ap
preciation on the part of the genera
public of the needs, the requirementi
and the value of every phase of edu
cational efforts-an appreciation tha
will orgmrize all the social forces o:
thecommunity-theChurch, women'E
clubs -and all civic bodies-for the
highest interests of education.
VIII. We believe and declare thal
the moral and spiritual side of edii
cation is of prime importance. Any
education of youth which forgets thiE
is radically wrong, fatally and funda
mentally defective. A civilizatior
based not on the moral and the
spiritual is a civilization lacking the
chief elements of permanency.
IX. As an inevitable corallary
we hold that every teacher shoulk
not only know something thoroughlN
and know how to teach it properly
but ought, in his inmost soul, to bu
something worthy. Character first
knowledge second, methods third.
In conclusien we desire to expresi
our gratitude to the brosid patriotistv
and generous liberality of the gen
eral education board and the South
ern education board, to the Univer
sity of Tennessee, to the citizens o
Knoxville, for making possible t hi
summer training school of the South
With all their vision of witalt its in

An Address That Touches Present Day

New York Sun.
The mnasterly address deliveret
yesterday at Tallulah Falls by th<
chief judge of the court of appah
of New York before the Georgia Bai
Association led step by step to a coni
elusion which Judge Parker stated
not in his own strong and clear Eng

court of the United States itself, ir
the case of Hiolden against Hardy
"The constitution of the Unitet
States, wvhich is necessarily and to
large extent inflexible and exceed
ingly difficult of amendment, shouk
not he so construed as to deprive thi
States of the power to so amendl thoi:
laws as to make t hem conform to the
wishes of the citizens as they mta;
deem best for the p)ublic welfari
without bringing them into conflic
with the supreme of the land."'
In not a sentence, line or word o
.Judge Parker's learned discussioi
of the phrase ''Due p)rJce)ss of law,'
in regard to federal powers ami
State p)owers, is there a trace of poi
litical intention or the su1spicion of

Evans, afteiards lynched, was con
cluded yesterday afternoon.
Long distance telephone comnmun
ication with Norway developed the
fact that important evidence was ad
duced at the inquest, implicating not
only Jim Evans, the brother of the
negro who was lynched, but it was
found that nine other negroes were
concerned in the crime. These are
Joe Ferris, William Donaldson, Ed
Thomas, Ulysses Johnsoni, John
Solden, Luther JohMsoin, William
Johnson, Sherman Staly and Pink
Hartwell. Immediately after the
inquest was concluded searching

of drilled blacks marched through
the streets threatening the lives of
all white.
CAUHE OF THE alOT.
The race riot was the immediate
outcm of the shooting of Patrolman
Nimasey lriday night by Lee l1rown,
a negro. 13rown and another negro
had engaged in a u(Inarrol, and Brown
had sworn to kill his antagonist. He

volver, and Patrolman Massey, hear.
ing of the trouble, lay in wait for
Brown. As the negro canim back
armed, hunting his enemy, Massey
stepped from a doorway and laid his
hand on Brown's shoulder. firown
turned quickley, a revolver in his
hand, uand shot t110 police1ar1 in the
abdomlen. The oflicer as he lay on
the sidewalk, fired at B3rown and
wouintded him dangerously.
Patrolian Massey afterward died
from the effects of his wooind.
Brown was arrested and hurriedly

The jail is being guarded by armed
deputies, who will remain on duty
all night.
An enraged mob of whites last
