WHERE THE BODY OF POPE LEO XIII WILL REST.
' I ' " J ' IW 1 The Popes of Rome are allowed to choos their own burial grounds. and It Is the custom for each Suc cessor to ths chair of St. Peter to designate the spot he selects for his final resting- place. The late Pope Leo chose the Church of St. John Lateran, and in this beautiful struc ture the bones of the holy man will He. Previous to Interment here, however, the body of the late Pon tiff will be encased in the crypt of St. Peter's Cathedral, here it will remain until taken out to be permanently interred. The Church of St. John Lateran, between the Caelian and Esqulllne hills, ranks as the first church in Christendom. It dates from the time of Constantine, and was, till the rebuilding- of St. Peter's, the metropolitan cathedral of Rome. It retains its fifth century baptistry and the beautiful thirteenth clois ters. The Santa Seals, said to have been brought from Jerusalem by the Empress Helena, is still venerated by pilgTims. The church itself Was destroyed by fire and re built in the fourteenth century. The adjoining palace of the early Popes is now a museum, devoted chiefly to Christian antiquities. na i 1 . i 1 CAPvEER OF THE LATE PONTIFF Leo XIII. Vincent Joachim Pecci, His Holiness the Pope, Bishop of Rome and Vicar of Jesus Christ. Successor of St. Peter. Prince of the Apostles. Supreme Pon tiff of trie Universal Church. Patriarch of the West. Primate of Italy. Archbishop and Metropolitan of the Roman Province, Sovereign of the Temporal Dominions of the i:oly Hunan Church, two-huudred-and-HflJ Mlfcfll Roman Pontiff, was born at Carp neto, eon of Count Ludovico Pecci. on M:rch 2, 1810. He was ordained a priest on Dec. 31. 1837, and having received the degree of Doctc r of Laws, was on the same day appointed a domestic prelate by Pope Gregory XVI, received the title prothono tary apostolic, and was a vigorous apostolic delegate at Benevento, Perugia and Spole to. He was made archbishop of Damietta, In partlbis, and was sent to Belgium as nuncio in M3; was nominated as archbishop of Perugif. in 184, and in 1853 was createa a cardinal by Plus IX, holding ere long the Important office of Cardinal Camerlengo. On Feb. 10, 1ST8, he was elected Pope, as the successor of Plus IX, and was crowned as Leo XI T. on March 3 of the same year. He restort d the hierarchy in Scotland, and composed the difficulty with Germany, growing out of the anti-Jesuit attitude of the Iron Chancellor. In 1888 he denounced the Irish plan of campaign. He manifested enlightened views, but on questions af fecting the church and his own status he held stanchly to what he conceived to be bis rights. He regarded himself aa the de i spoiled sovereign of Rome, and as a pris oner at the Vatican. He persistency re fused to recognize the law of guarantees. He protested against heresy and "god less" schools, and in Lis encyclicals af firmed that the only solution of the so cialistic problem lies in the influence of 'ihe papacy . In 1M4 he constrained the French monarchists and clericals to accept the Repuolic, but assumed an uncompro mising attitude against the French anti associatiens law or the Parliament of 1902-3. In 1S83 he opened the archives of the Vati can to historical Investigators and made himself IUI9WI as a poet, chiefly in the LatiP tongue In 1S96 he issued an encyclical pronouncing the Anglican orders null and void. The jubilee of his episcopate, in 1893, was marked by even greater demonstrations pilgrimages, addresses and gifts than that of his priesthood in 1;7. The jubilee of his pontificate, in February of 1903. aroused the Catholic world to other great demonstrations, though these were marred by the fear of his approaching dissolution. ' DETAILS OF HIS LIFE. ecclesiastics to study law and diplomacy and thus qualify himself for joining what may be termed the Papal diplomatic serv ice and become conversant with the system of the spiritual government. It is from the ranks of this official body that. In these days, a new Pontiff is almost invariably chosen. In 1832 Joachim Pecci received the sub dlaconate and diaconate, and on March 14 of the same year Gregory XVI made him a domestic prelate, his first promotion, with the title of monsignor. On Dec 23, lfcoT, he was ordained priest by Cardinal Odescalchi, saying his first mass in the chapel of St. Stanislaus at the Jesuit novitiate of St. Andrea. Early in 1838 Mgr. Pecci was named governor of the papal province of Bene vento, and, like Sixtus V, busied himself with the suppression of brigandage. WHILE HE WAS GOVERNOR. In connnection with this work the follow ing story was told of Monsignor Pecci: A certain marquis called one day to pro test against what he considered the inter ference of the Governor and informed the latter that he was just starting for Rome to procure his recall. "Have you considered the step well, mar quis?" asked Monsignor Pecci. "Yes, monsignor," said the other, "and I'm going at once." To this the Governor rejoined: "Resolu tions of this kind should be well consid ered at leisure. You will do me the honor of staying here for the present?" That same night the marquis's castle was surrounded and twenty-eight brigands of whom ho was patron and chief were ar rested or shot. From Benevento Monsignor Pecci was transferred to the governorship of Perugia, where he remained for a - ear and a half. The young ecclesiastic in 1843 was called to exercise his talents in a more important post, being consecrated bishop of Damietta in pattibus and sent to Brussels as papal nuncio. It was as representative of the Vatican in the Belgian capital that he first gained the political insight and experience which have been one of the principal char acteristics of his tenure of the pontifical throne. Monsignor Pecci remained over three years in Belgium, and on his recall to Italy was decorated witn tne grana cor don of the Order of Leopold. After leaving Brussels the nuncio paid a visit to London. This was in February, 1846, and in the same year he was conse crated archbishop of Perugia. He continued in this position for the thirty-two years which Intervened before his election to the highest position in the church, his tenure of the episcopate coinciding exactly wh the thirty-two years of the reign of Pius IX. In his episcopal labors the archbishop showed no less energy and zeal than he had displayed as governor of a pontifical state. Among other achievements he suc ceeded in purging the archdiocese of brigandage and at a certain time all the prisons under his spiritual jurisdiction were empty. Such success did not pass un noticed, and in 1850 Mgr. Pecci waseleva'ed to the dignity of cardinal priest. ELECTED POPE. held in 1877 Cardinal of the the direction of moderation which greatly contributed to increasing the influence of the Vatican abroad. From the very outset UM MW Pontiff displayed the greatest in terest in the social questions agitating the world of to-dav, and in an encyclical issued In December, 1878, appealed to the intellec tual forces of Catholicity to contest the propaganda of doctrines which his Holi ness described as subservient of social or der, alluding especially to the Socialists in Germany and the Nihilist movement In Russia. POLITICAL ACHIEVEMENTS. The co-operation afforded by the Pope to the various governments in opposing the nificent diamond ring sent him by the Sul tan of Turkey as a personal mark of his good will and pleasure. RECENT ENCYCLICAL. In February, 1900, the Pope issued an encyclical on Americanism, which caused much discussion, and in June, 1901, he issued a letter on labor, which also aroused much interest. On March 3, 1902, the late Pope took part in the public celebrations in honor of the twenty-fourth anniversary of his corona tion by holdings a "papal chapel" in the Basilica of St. Peters, on which occasion growing forces of social democracy paved he was greeted by 50,000 persons. This was the first time a "cnaper naci Deen neia in the basilica since 1S70, such ceremonies nav the way for the settlement o! disputes existing between those governments and the Vatican, both spiritual and civil authorities bring, as it were, called upon to merge their differences and make common cause against the common enemy. The first great political achievement of the Pope was the settle ment of the differences with Germany, which had given rise to the famous Kultur kampf. The rapid spread of anarchistic doctrines in Germany and the attempts made upon the Emperor's life in 1878 induced Prince Bismarck to make approaches to the Ultra montane party to secure their support for his economic policy. Herr Falk, the fa mous author of the May laws, was removed from office and other concessions were made to the Catholics. Finally diplomatic rela tions with the Vatican were resumed, and the late Emperor Frederick, then crown prince, signalized the restoration of an har mnnimm understanding by visiting the still greater triD- Ing heretofore taken place in tne bistine chapel. Thirty cardinals were among those present. The late ronun on aiaren iwi, puu lished a long encyclical letter, the tone of which suggested testamentary recom mendations and in which he deplored the renewed attacks on the church and the recent errors of humanity, instancing divorce and picturing the present condition of society as having drifted into a state of anarchy. m m The twenty-fourth anniversary or rope Leo's coronation was ceieoratea at me Vatican July 6: 1902, by the entire papal court and thousands of members of all the Catholic societies assemoieü in nome ior the occasion. , The last notable encyclical or .ueo aiii was dated Oct. 30, 1902, and was designed to promote study of the scriptures and in February of tnis year ne wrote a poem, Brilon td to a friend whom the Pontiff de sired to advise on the best means of pro longing life.

The career of the late Pope was remark able in many ways, and the details of his life are interesting. The Society of Jesus, which it was afterwards the first care of his pontificate to restore to its ancient position in the councils of the church, was Intrusted with his education, young Pecci being sent at the age of eight years to the Jesuit co' lege at Viberbo, where he re mained unt.l his fourteenth year. At this time his mother died and he shortly after wards proceeded to Rome to continue his studies at the Jesuit college In that city. "When he was eighteen years old he secured th first prize for chemistry and physics. His aptitude for natural science, however. In no way Interfered with his taste for liter ature and classical studies, and even in those early days he was remarkable for the elegance and purity of his Latin, which subsequently found such notable expression not only in his encyclical and eccelsiastical work, but in the higher plane of poetry. He obtained, in 1821. the, desree of doctor of 4lvin!ty, and entered the aca-wny of noWe J curia certainly underwent a development In At the consistory held in Pecci was appointed caroerlingo Roman Church, which gave him chief charge of the temporalities of the Holy See. In this capacity it fell to his task to make the necessary arrangements for the conclave for the election of a new Pope after the death of Plus IX, in February. 1878. The conclave lasted thirty-six hours and at the third ballot Cardinal Pecci was elected Supreme Pontiff and took the name of Leo XIII, after the famous Pope Leo X. at whose Jubilee he had assisted as a simple student. He was crowned on March 3 with the tiara, or triple crown, the ceremony taking place, not in St. Peter's, where all his predecessors but one had beeu crowned since 1556. but in the Sistine chapel in the Vatican, where the conclave had been held. Public opinion regarded the new Pope as characterised above all things by a love of peace and it was expected that, depart ing from that nonpossumus policy of his predecessor, he would speedily conclude a compromise with the Italian government and thus put an end to the antagonism be tween the Vatican and the Quirinal. frtt the world was soon undeceived, and. in his first encyclical, promulgated at the Eastfr following his accession. Pope Leo XIII un hesitatingly maintained his demand for the restoration of the temporal power of the papcy. nor did he ever recede from the n.vrltinn then taken UO. " - .1 .11 .... W T m m At the same lime uie puucjr ui m His success in this arbitration induced the T.ro tn ficlare his readiness to act as ar bitrator in other disputes for the benefit of the whole of Europe and or cnristianity, but for this his Holiness declared it to be essential that he should be restored his liberty as an Independent temporal sover eign.

POLICY IN REGARD TO FRANCE. Perhaps the most remarkable feature of the late Pope's policy was the change in the attitude which the Vatican had hitherto preserved in regard to the French republic At the beginning of Pope Leo's reign the identification-of the clergy with the royalist movement, which gave rise to Gambetti s . r.,,,rk- "T.

The celebration of the twenty-fifth anni versary of the late Pope's coronation oc curred in St. Peter's March 3. last, with all the impressiveness and grandeur of the Catholic Church and on April 28 the pontifi cate of the late Pope surpassed in length that of St. Peter. Leo XIII having then been elected Pope twenty-five years, two mnnths and seven days, known as the vears of Peter." King Edward visited the late Pope In the latter part of April and Emperor Wil liam was received by the late Pontiff early In Mav. Under Leo XVIII the American dioceses almost doubled in number and the Catho lic University at Washington was founded. The Pope was represented at the world's fair Chicago, by Monsisrnor, now Cardinal Satolli. who shortly afterwards was ap pointed Papal delegate at Washington. His Holiness was much gratified when Presi dent Roosevelt sent Governor Taft to Rome to discuss the Philippine questions, but one rf his srreatest dreams, which has never realized, was that America should have diplomat representative at the Vatican. gBaiawavaaaaaawaaBvaawawaVaaaiBMaMaMB ANTI-TREAT CRUSADE.

Of all the railway representatives that have appeared before the board up to this time the representative of the B. & O.

Figures show that the gross earnings of the road in the last year have been $7,945,S08.09. The increase in net earnings per mile has been $550.
