The Vatican haa naked prayers for the angnat head of the church at this supreme mo meat. ROME. July 30. 3:30 a. m. Now that the I supreme last moment in the memorable life and reign ef Pope Leo is expected almost hourly, the contrast between the quiet within and the excitement without the Vatican is most striking. In the vast palace there is a hushed calm of expectation, the only apparent wakeful souls being the Swiss guards. The doctors and attendauts of the dying Pontoff speak in whispers and move noiselessly about, so that from the sick room no sound comes except the heavy breathing of the unconscious Pope or his occasional cries for Pio Centra aud Dr. Lapponi. His tone is one of fear, as though he felt himself abandoned. In reality sleep is very far from all eyes. No matter at what hour death comes the whole palace will spring into sudden life, as though touched by a magician's wand. In the piazza of St. Peter s, on the con trary, all is movement, there being a regu lar encampment of journalists before the tamous bronze doors, which are now closed in their faces, and behind which the regular tramp of the Swiss guards can be heard. Many eyes are glued to the window iu the Pope's chamber, overlooking the piazza, while the near-by cafes, especially those with telephones, are crowded. Bicycles ready for use are piled up outside them, and cabs are lingering aout in the hope of catching a fare. This strange scene is illuminated by the magnificent starlight, while the two grand and celebrated foun tains give a kind of spectral grace to the whole. The Osservatore Romano, the chief Vat ican organ, has received orders to hold itself in readiness to issue almost at a moment's notice a special edition. The only thing wanting to complete the paper is the hour of Pope Leo's de;ith. The staffs of all the other papers are at their posts, ready to issue special editions at any hour. IN A STATE OF COMA. The Pope lies in a state of coma, and there are doubts in the minds of his doctors whether he will ever completely emerge. His immediate dissolution seems only to oe averted by the reliability of the action of his heart. His pulse, though weak, con tinues steady. Shortly before midnight Dr. Lapponi said. "The Pope at the present moment is in a state of coma, which mav be called a con diton preceding the last agony, the dura tion of which it is impossible to forecast, although everything leads to the belief that his condition cannot last. To be more ex act, he is still in a state of torpor and stu por, from which, however, he rouses occa sionally when he hears sharp sounds, as. f .r instance, the Insistent voice of one of his familiars calling loudly to him. Left alone he relapses Immediately into a condi tion of torpor At intervals he murmurs in his sleep, continuing to have forebodings that he is being abandoned bv his valet Centra, and myself. These are the symp toms of incipient cerebral anemia and gen eral exhaustion. He can no longer turn in hi bed without assistance and is being kept alive by5 artificial stimulants. During the last twenty-three hours he has had two in jections of camphorated oil. three of caf feine and two hypodermics of salt water, beside drinking stimulants." Mgr Bislotti. master of the Pope's cham ber, said earlier In the evening that the pulse of his Holiness had not yet shown any signs of becoming Intermittent, so, de spite his extreme weakness and coma, he believed the Pope would survive the night gnd possibly to-morrow. Both the Italian government and the au thorities of the Vatican have made final prspat aliens for the Tope s death. The gov ernment Is rigidly censoring all telegrams gnd telephonic communication between Italy gnd the rest of the centin gj this pour but few people remain . OONT1N Ü ED ON PAGE I- C iL. za SMITH REPLIES TO PROCTOR. Former Postmaster General Resents the (onniloner'i Crltielama. PHILADELPHIA. July 19. Former Post master General Charles Emory Smith has written a letter to Postmaster General Payne, in reply to a communication sent to the postmaster general by John S. Proctor, president of the Civil-service Commission, in which the latter criticised the adminis tration of Mr. Smith. The main points to whi' h Mr. Smith takes exception are Mr. Proctor's attack on the Massirtcatin of per sons at postoffices on the establishment of free delivery, and the alleged "packing" of the rural free delivery division of the de partment in anticipation of Its classifica tion. On the first point Mr. Smith says the law provides for rlaaalflf d postofflces when rhe receipts reach $H'.(x),000 a year, and on the second point he states that the statute, not the department, puts the clerks of new free delivery offices into the classified service. BROKE SEASON RAILROADS CARRIED IMMENSE SIN DAY EXCURSION CROWDS. Fifteen Thousand Five Hundred and Seventy. Eight People Passed Through Gates of Lalon Station. SCALPERS DID BIG BUSINESS Hl.ERS INFESTED ILLINOIS ST. SCENTING OL'T CUSTOMERS. Forty Thouaand Enjoyed a Reautiful Day in the City's Parks Driv ing and Automoblllng. Fifteen thousand five hundred and seventy-eight Sunday excursionists passed through the gates of the Union Station yes terday, and all records for the season were broken. The immense crowd was handled remarkably well by the limited force of em ployes, who had their hands full in prevent ing accidents, seeing that excursionists got the right trains, and in attending to the thousand and one details which taxed their patience to the utmost. Of the 15.578 6,080 were brought in by the Big Four, Pennsylvania, L. E. & W.. Van dalia and C, H. A D. Excursions were run by these roads from Madison. Greencastle, Terre Haute. Union City, Elkhart. Cham paign, 111., Sandusky, O., Peoria, Michigan City. Fort Wayne, and two from Cincinnati. The same roads carried 9,498 people to points in this State, Ohio and Illinois. The busi ness was pretty evenly divided, and all roads fared well. Some of the trains were so crowded that passengers were hanging on to the steps of the cars. CROWD HANDLED WELL. The busiest hours at the Union Station were from 10 o'clock in the morning until noon, when the trains were coming in, and from 5 o'clock until 7 in the evening, when they were going out. During those hours people passed through the gates and the depot building in a steady stream. No one who has not observed how the Union Sta tion employes care for a crowd of this kind can realize the amount of care and down right hard work there Is in it. Excursion ists have a mania for getting on the wrong trains, for losing bundles even babies and, most irritating of all, for asking absolutely useless questions. So far as reported not a single accident, even of a minor nature, oc curred, everybody caught his right train, and there were no mothers weeping for lost infants. As usual the ticket scalpers on Illinois street did a thriving business. Many of the excursionists who came to the city used their round-trip tickets as a conven ient way of saving money for a longer trip. With these, and some who come to make extended visits, the scalpers did a profit able business, purchasing rtturn coupons or a few cents and selling them to regular travelers who were looking for bargains in transportation to Cincinnati, Terre Haute, Chicago and other points, for 50 cents or more. Runners for the scalpers' offices in fested Illinois street, smelling out likely customers with keen noses. The railroads are determined to break up this illegitimate traffic if possible. CROWDS AT THE PARKS. The majority of the 6.000 people who came to Indianapolis on pleasure bent went to the city parks for a cool day. Fairview and Riverside were the most favored. The estimate of the crowd at each place is 15.000. At Fairview the Indianapolis Mili tary Band played afternoon and evening. A special programme was played by the band yesterday containing well-selected classical and popular pieces. Rag time w m executed with vigor and vim. to the delight of the many who never grow tired of svn copated music. At Riverside Miller s City Band gave the concerts. As usual the deer and the bears and the rest of the nv-nag-erie at Riverside drew thousands of animal lovers. The other amusements, the double eight railway and the laughing gallerv, were well patronized. To these parks many brought lunch and supper, forming merry picnic parties under the big trees. Probably 40.000 people visited the parks yesterday. The day was delightfully cool, not tos cool to dress in summer attire and spend the day in the open air. but still cool enough to make life thoroughly enjoyable. At Spades Place the concert by Mavei s Military Band drew about 3.000 people. At Brookside about 4.U0U people spent the day. Garfield Park was not so well patronized. Hardly a thousand people went to the beau tiful South Side park. The day was ideal for driving and auto mobiling. Scarcely a vehicle was to be obtained at a livery sta'ble for money or favor. On every road out of the eitv Stan hopes and runabouts bowled along and autos whizzed at railroad speed. NEVER SPOKE IN 18 YEARS. Old 1 ork ountlan Swore Off Talking and Kept Hla Vow. YORK. Pa.. July 1! -With the words. "I talk too much. " Ja b Rudisil, of Heidel berg township. York county, eighteen years ago resolved never to speak again.

It seems that at the ot ritt y-six years Mr. Rudisil came to the . .inclusion that he talked too much and tokl his family that he would never speak again. After that the only ways In which he ever expressed himself were by motions of the hand of a nod gj the head or in hiv la.ua hi a. RECORD FOUL PLAY IS FEARED UNKNOWN MA DISCOVERED BY A BOY NE R BROOKSIDE PARK. He Waa at Onee Taken to the City Hoapital and Died There Without Regaining Conaclouaneaa. A BRUISE ON HIS ABDOMEN POST-MORTEM EXAMINATION BY THE DEPUTY CORONER. He Thlnka There May Be Evidence of a Crime Clothea Marked "M. R. Wr." Poiaon Bottle Fonnd. The mysterious death of. an unknown man, which from all the evidence savors of a crime and in every way bears the ear marks of foul piay, is at the present time puzzling the police department of the city. Shortly after 7 o'clock yesterday morning Oscar Simms, a colored boy living at Twenty-fifth and Rural streets, was driving some cows to pasture at Brookside Park, and, hearing groans which seemed to come from the heavy bushes at the east end of the park, followed the sound through dense brush and weeds to a secluded spot in the woods, where he discovered the prostrate form of a man. alive, yet apparently in the throes of death, and seemingly suffering terrible agony. Simms, for the time, forgot the cows which were intrusted to his care and ran to the office of Dr. Egbert and told him of his lind. The doctor went at pnee to relieve the suffering man, in the meantime calling the City Dispensary ambulance and the bicycle police. On arriving at the spot where the un known man lay the doctor at once saw that he was beyond any human aid, and on the arrival of the ambulance turned him over to the care of Dr. Cunningham, of the City Dispensary, who took the dying man to the City Hospital. DIED AT HOSPITAL. The doctors at the hospital did everything in their power to save the life of the un known, but in spite of their efforts he died within half on hour after is arrival there without regaining consciousness sufficiently to disclose his identity or the true cause of his death. Bicyclemen Trimp and Lowe, who were the first of the police to arrive on the scene, failed to elicit any information from the suffering stranger, and say that he was in an unconscious condition when they first saw him. A search of the vicinity whore the man was found reevaled a bottle, which appar ently had at one time contained tincture of opium, but the bottle was found several hundred feet away from the body, and it ia not evident that the man threw it there after drinking its contents, nor is it prob able thai he intentionally drank the drug before entering the bushes where he was later found. Deputy Coroner Geis held a post-mortem examination of the body last night at the City Hospital, and found that the man died from a hemorrhage of the stomach and a large bruise on the body over the stomach appeared as evidence of a kick or blow which could not possibly have been infikted hy the man on himself. Dr. Geis said last night after the examination: 'From the post-mortem examination which I made it looks to me that there is ry strong evidence of foul play, and I would not say that the man died by his own hand. I will examine the stomach to-morrow ha find whether it contains any poison, and will then be able to give more definitely my opinion as to whether the case was one of' murder or suicide.'" It is the opinion of the police that the man was drugged before being taken to the bushes where he was robbed ami given the blow in the abdomen which caused his death. MARKS ON CLOTHING. From the appearance of the unfortunate it Is evident that he had ben calling on friends Saturday night. He was well dressed, wore a suit of grey Scotch goods bought at Reuben's, a black derby hat pur chased from the Engle clothing store, a light tan overcoat, patent leather shoes, white vest marked "M. R. W." and the same mark appeared on his collar. On his person was found a paper from Peru. Ind., dated June 10, a pocketbook which was a souvenir from Clarence Terrill's saloon in Peru. Ind.. and about $3 in money. Nothing was found which would give any infor mation to his identity After the post-mortem the body was re auivsd to Tutewiler's morgue where it was viewed by a number of people but up to an early hour this morning no one was found who could identify It. The bottle which was found in the field by the police, supposed to have contained tincture of opium, was bought at Stokes Brothers' drug store at 226 North Meridan street, but when seen last night they were unable to say to whom the drug was sold. A complete investigation will be made by the police nd it is said that several clews have been secured which it Is thought may clear up the mystery. Deputy Coroner Gels said last night that every effort would be made to ascertain the cause of the man's death and nothing would be left undone as far as the office of the coroner was con cerned that would aid in revealing the criminal if it was found that a crime had been committed.

Russia Aniloos to Settle Definitely Her Position in Eaatern Polltlea und ( urn Japaneae. PEKING. July 19 According to diplo mats here, the greatest faetOf in the East ern situation is the increasing danger of war between Russia and Japan. They be lieve it is becoming plain that Russia is willing to fight Japan if convinced that no other powr will assist her. The Russians are confident of their ability to easily de feat Japan and are said to be anxious to settle definitely her position in Eastern poli tics and end her ambitions to oppose Rus sia's progress in Manchuria. The belief Is attributed to the Japanese that th Russian policy is to attempt to placate Great Britain and America and provoke Japan into be ginning hostilities. They regard Russia's consent to opening ports in Manchuria, the "z.tr's promised visit to England and the occupation of the Corean border as parts of that policy. Russia's activity on the Yalu river Is more irritating to Japan than the retention of Manchuria, and all Japanese officials in China speak of war as a ''proba bility. YOKOHAMA. July 19. M. Pavloff. the Russian minister at Seoul, capital of Corea. has had an audience with the Emperor of C trog at which he opposed fhe opening of Wiju. the port on the Yalu river, the open ing of which was asked by Great Britain and Japan. THREE SHOT BY A MOB TWO MURDERERS PIT TO DEATH IN THE BASIN, W VO., JAIL, And a Speclnl Deputy Sheriff Killed While Attempting to Defend Hla Prisoners. GRAVE STATE OF AFFAIRS REIGN OF LAWLESSNESS IN NORTH WESTERN' WYOMING. Lives of Prominent Cattlemen In Dan gerCall Made for Militia Fight Probable. RED LODGE, Mont., July 19. Jim Gor man, who killed his brother about a year ago and ran off with his brother's wife, and a man named Walters, who killed a widow named Hoover at the Hot Springs two years ago because she refused to marry him, were lynched at Basin, Wyo., early to day. C. E. Pierce, a deputy sheriff, was killed during the attack on the jail. A state of lawlessness now prevails in northwestern Wyoming, as a result of which all law and order seems to have been abolished. From President Moffett. of the Montana and Wyoming Telephone Company, who is now making a tour of in spection of his company's lines, comes the news of the lynching and an appeal for help from Sheriff Fenton, of Big Horn county, who has arrested a number of prominent cattlemen near Thermopolis and has appealed to the Governor of Wyoming lor assistance of the militia in getting his prisoners to Basin. It was reported to Sheriff Fenton last Wednesday morning that a mob was com ing up to Basin from Hiattsville and Ton s!ip for the purpose of lynching Gorman and Walters. As a measure of precaution the sheriff took these two men and a horse thief out of the jail and secreted them in a gully near town under guard of Deputies Felix Alston and C. E. Pierce. Gorman managed to slip his handcuffs and make his escape. He swam the Big Horn river, an unprecedented feat, and made for the moun tains. A posse of seven men quickly or ganized, and Gorman was recaptured early yesterday morning about fifty miles from Basin. Last night a mob of about fifty unmasked men rode up the east bank of the Big Horn and compelled the ferryman to carry them across the river. They made no demon stration until they entered Basin, when five shots were fired as a warning. The mob proceeded at once to the county jail and fired a volley into the jail. Deputy Pierce and Special Deputy Meade were guarding the prisoners at the time. One bullet grazed Ifeada's shoulder and entered Pierce's heart. Members of the mob then quickly procured two telephone poles and battered th jail doors down. They first came to Walters, who was crouched in his cell pite ously begging for mercy. No needless tor ture was resorted to. Walters was shot in stantly. The mob next found Gorman, whose body was pierced by five bullets and was left presumably dead. He lingered, however, until this foreroon. A still Porn alarming state of affairs is reported from the vicinity of Thermopolis. About six weeks ago. as a result of the range feud that has been so bitterly waged, a sheepman, Ben Minnick. was killed by eatl lemen. The sheriff, it is asserted, has captured the murderers, who are all prom le nt cattlemen, and whose names have been withheld, owing to threats made against him. Sheriff Fenton is unable to get his prisoners to Basin. It is said the same mob that lynched Gorman and Walters are sympathizers and have declared that Sheriff Fenton will never get out of the locality alive with his prisoners. Sheriff Fenton has wired the Governor of Wyoming for permission to use the state militia at Lander and also has sent a telephone message to Basin, and Marquis Villaverde Succeeds Senor Silvela aa Premier. MADRID. July 19. The King has ap proved the new cabinet which has ban con stituted by Marquis Valla verde as follows: Premier.

The Impartial, commenting upon the speech, says it constitutes a cate gorical declaration of a Franco-Spanish alliance. SUNDAY PRIZE FIGHT CROSBY AND KELLER DRAW AT FIVE ROUNDS NEAR FOSTER. Crowd of Illlnola Sporta, Ronted hy Vermilllon County Sheriff. Pulla Off the Mill in Wnrren County. STOPPED ON CLAIM OF FOUL ALL BETS ARE DECLARED OFF BY THE REFEREE. Both Men in the Pink of Condition Crowd of Over Two Hundred Present-Churchgoers Attend. Special to the Indianapolis Journal. PERRYSVILLE, Ind., July 19. Foiled by a courageous sheriff a crowd of 200 sports from Danville, 111., that crossed the State line this afternoon to pull off a prize fight near this place, persisted in their purpose, moved over into Warren county, pitched the ring in the dense woods near the town of Foster and held the fight at 6 o'clock this evening. The ring was within a hun dred yards of a sehoolhouse, where religious services were being held late in tli after noon, and it was an interesting feature of the fistic contest that it proved sufficiently attractive to draw several spectators from the congregation gathered in the school house. Steve Crosby, of Louisville, and Joe Kel ler, of Cincinnati, were the principals, and they were to have gone fifteen rounds for a side bet of $200 and the "gate" receipts, but Crosby's seconds claimed a foul in the fifth round and refused to continue the fight. Accordingly the referee declared the contest a draw and all bets off. The men were matched at light weights and the fight was exciting while it lasted, with neither man getting appreciably the better of it. Both fighters were in prime condition, fit to go the fifteen rounds or to a finish. The interesting side of the affair was the work of Sheriff James A. Swayme, of Ver million county, who came down from New port when he learned of the plans of the Danville sports, and, single-handed, put the crowd of 200 to rout. There is a place in the woods, just west of Perrysville, where a number of fights have been pulled off by Danville people in the past without any interference from local officials, and it was selected for the Crosby Keller bout. The plans were well made and every effort had been made to keep them secret, but they leaked out and Sheriff Swayme re ceived the information at his home in New port barely in time to enable him to get here just as the crowd from Illinois arrived on the scene and prepared to pitch the ring Sheriff Swayme informed the fighters and their seconds that the fight could not he held in Vermillion county, and. although many in the crowd talked of going ahid with their arrangements in spite of the presence of the officer, they were soon con vinced that such a course would result in serious trouble and the leaders counseled discretion. A "bluff" was made of going over into Fountain county and Sheriff Swayme wag fooled for a short time, but he soon dis covered that Warren county was the ob jective point, and he did all in his power to prevent the tight there. He follcwed the crowd as far as Gessie. Vermillion c ounty. avd from that place telephoned to Sheriff Williams, of Warren COtmty, at Williams port, notifying him of the approach of the Danville crowd. Sheriff Williams, however, could not get from Williamsport to Foster in time to interfere with the fight, if lie made an attempt, and as Sheriff Swayme had no jurisdiction outside Vermillkm coun ty he turned back home. The crowd wasted no time after a suitable place for the ring was found in the woods just across the county line, a short distant t south of Foster. Two hundred tickets .it 1 were sold for the affair, but the crowd, was materially swelled by residents of the nelghborhMd. who could not be prevent d from viewing the fight from a short dis tance. It is understood that there were persons in the crowd who secured the names of all the leaders of the Danville erowd and of a number of others who were there as spectators merely. This information will be turned over to the proper officials of Warren county, but whether any pros, ctl tions will result is a matter of speculation. The prompt action and courage of Sher iff Swayme won him general Commenda tion in Perry ville, where the people have long protested against similar violations of the law near here. This is the first tim an attempt has been made to pull off a fight on Sunday. ELKS AT BALTIMORE. Large Number Will Attend the Order's National Convention. BALTIMORE.
