»- TF.PROR AMONG CHINESE. r A CHECK TO REFORM Government Returning to the Policy of Repression. Peking. July 29.— The Chinese who are advo cating government refoims have been terror ized by the readoption of the old policy of re pression, as Instanced by the rwcent arrest at Phanghai of Chinese editors on charges of sedi tion. These arrests are interpreted here to in dicate that the extreme Conservatives are in the ascendency, and that tha government has de termined to suppress the comparative freedom of speech which has prevailed since the up 3;-fcval of 1900. The names of forty residents of Peking who i*r* accused of liberal tendencies were pre sented to the Empress Dowager to-day by the reactionary officials, who recommended that they be severely punished. Those accused are considered guilty of what In enlightened coun tries would be termed only legitimate criticism of the government. This is said also to be true of the native Journalists imprisoned at Shanghai, except In the case of two of them, ■who suggested the assassination of the Manch*.: rulers as a remedy for China's troubles. All foreigners and progressive Chinese arc deeply interested In the decision which the min sters will make on the question of turning over ih- native editors arrested at Shanghai to Chi- UCee jurisdiction, and they express th« hope that technicalities concerning the jurisdiction of the mixed court will be Ignored, if necessary. ■Hi that th» ministers will refuse, on the jsrour.d of humanity, to deliver prisoners to the <"hfncso for probable torture and execution, as V.ai/pened in the case of the Chinese spies who ■were J-jrurd- over to the Chinese officials at t-:.nn»;l.£ii «»i the Japanese war.

Manila, July 29.— The United States Philippine Commission haa been conducting a long exami nation of the heads of the various departments of the government, forcing on them a general policy of retrenchment. The commissioners have investigated the estimates, cut down items, sub stituted Filipinos in subordinate offices formerly assigned to Americans, and have Impressed on the chiefs that they must follow the McKlnley policy of the elevation of the Filipinos.

Marconi's opinion that puch interception can occur only If the German company's stations are erected in England is. It is declared, erroneous. The German company says all that Is necess.vy Is to erect a strong station on the shores of the Baltic or the North Sea, attune its receiving wires to Marconi's station at Poldnu, Cornwall, and it would bo impossible for Marconi to receive transatlantic messages.

JULY 30, ISOE MASS AT THE CATHEDRAL Continned from flrat p««' and Bishop-elect Colton pronounced the absolu tion; then Monslgnors Mooney and Edwards, and then Archbishop Farley pronounced the final one The eulogy was pronounced by Monsignor Mooney, who 6ald, in part: One whose life has been a continuous protest against the subordination of eternal and Immutable principles to the passing and transitory phase* of an earthly environment; one whose life has been an unflinching struggle against the ruthless agencies that would still further dechiistlanise the world and the world's society; one whose life has been a series of striking triumph on the field, with no other arm or weapon than the Imperishable panoply of divine truth, he renewed again the pristine glories of his station, made resplendent once more the immortal cause of Justice, right and order, gave the needed courage, hope and high re solve unto his own— such a one has passed away from the mortal union of men, away from the con flicting strife of human selfish interest, but not away from the sorrowing thoughts of her whom he served so well, whose tortures he so long guided to her own great and beneficent uplifting. For from the day that Leo ascended the throne of the Fisherman and took into his keeping the head ship and guardianship of the fortunes of the Church, from that day to his dying day there came forth from his pen and lips a body of luminous teaching, of deep, profound and unassailable truths which were the. health, the guide and the solac« of the two hundred and fifty millions of loving chil dren who acknowledged his spiritual authority. I know indeed, brethren, that it is alone to the chtldren of the Church that the characterization of our dead Pontiff would be most fittingly addressed. I know that it la by them alone that its full truth fulness would be admitted. But I know, too, that apart from hie high office, apart from his great •deeds, there was that In him which has elicited tha admiration and called forth the. reverenca of the whole civilized world. As gracious a& he was exaited, a? kindly and eharltahlo as he was cultured, as sympathetic as he was noble, there was no condition or class of eoelety. no division of the religious or political world which the feelings of his great loving heart and the thoughts of his great gifted intellect did malice, and to which they did not go out in fullest measure. And where else. I ask. have their effects displayed themselves! so copiously, so generously, as In this broad land of ours? So much so. brothers, that It were but a trite tale to rehears* them In this presence. Ana, brethren, has not the response come— tha response which in these, the days of our mourn ing, has been a sweet assuagement of our loss— a response in the noble, touching tributes from pulpit and from press, from those in public station and from every walk in life, tributes which prove how deeply the personal vlttues of our good dead Pontiff have Impressed tha men of his own day and gen eration. K. OF C. ATTEND VESPERS. Services in Memory of Leo at Paulist Fathers* Church. Th* Knights of Columbus, six thousand in number, attended a memorial service for the dead Pope last night in the Church of the Pau! lst Fathers, Sixtieth-st. and Columbus-aye. The services consisted of the memorial vespers for the dead. Father Curry being the celebrant and Father Alexander P. Doyle the panegyrist. The Gregorian Chant was sung by the surplice choir of one hundred vetoes, Within the chanc&l were over fifty priests. Jesuits, Dominicans, PaullEts and secular clergymen of the New- York Diocese. Immediately In front of the chancel, which was draped in purple ajid black, was a catafalque. A largo silver candelabra stood at each of the four corners, and a row of tall wax tapers burned at the sides and ends. On tha top of the catafalque rested a triple crown. Every aeat In the church was filled, and many hundred men and women stood throughout the services. It was estimated that fully a thousand were unable to gain admit tance. Father Doyle tn his panegyris of the Pope said Leo XIII was a saint, a statesman and a seer. He was a Christian gentleman at all times, a man full of sweetness and kindness, and filled with a respect for others— rich and poor alike. Yet, while remarkable for his piety, his sweetness and kindly tolerance. Leo had, when necessary, an inflexible will, which knew no bending, yet was exertod when necessary with a kindly spirit. It was as a statesman, the speaker said, that the dead Pope had been also remarkable. Father Doyle ended by telling of the dead Pontiff as a seer. H* had been permitted to look down the ages and see what was to come in years hence. Among those present were Supreme Court Jus tices O'Gorman and Giegerich, John D. Crim mins, ex-Sheriff Dunn, City Clerk Scully, F. W. Smith, of the City Chamberlain's office, chair man of the New-York Chapter, K. of C; J. J. Delaney, State deputy of the K. of C; Francis D.

A great throng attended the solemn pontifical mass celebrated in St. James's Pro-Cathedral, In Jay-st.. Brooklyn, yesterday morning, for the re pose of the soul of Pope Leo. On the altar and In the sanctuary was nearly every priest in the dio cese. In many of the churches In Brooklyn and Long Island masses were celebrated at an early hour, to enable the priests to attend the pontifical mass. Bishop McDonnell was the celebrant, assisted by the Rev. John L. Belford, pastor of Sts. Peter and Paul's Church, as deacon; the Rev. Dr. White, of 6t. Patrick's, ps sub-deacon; Dean Donnelly, of Flushing, and Father Thomas Taaffe, of St. Pat rick's, as assistant priests. The Rev. George \V.

David Hickey. the Rev. John Wood, the Rev. James J. Durick, the Rev. Thomas McGronan, and nearly two hundred other priests and seminarians from St. John's College. The cathedral was draped in purple and black, and on the side altars the papal colors predom inated. A catafalque stood at the head of the centre aisle, with a mitre, crosier, the coat of arms and other emblems of the Pontiff. The priests chanted the office for the dead, led by Bishop McDonnell, prior to the services of the solemn mass. The Rev. P. McHale, president of St. John's Col lege, delivered the panegyric. Taking as his text. Ecclesiastes. fiftieth verse, "lie shone in bis days as the morning irtar in the midst of a cloud, and as the moon at full." he declared that Pope Leo would live in history as on? of the greatest prelates the Church ever had. He said the Pope was a profound scholar, who. despite his multitudinous duties, had time to contribute to literature works which compared with the best writings of th^ century. He won the respect of the. people, irre spective of religion, as a theologian, a diplomat end a ruler, und the death of this really good and great man was deeply deplored. Father McHil#> said the wonderful growth of th? Church under Pope Leo had extended to every country, and its progress was marvellous and due to the great Interest shown by the farceelng but simple living Pontiff. The Pope's interest In th* growth of the Church in the United States wan always manifest, and lie regarded America a* among -the foremost nations of the world. H<* never omitted an occasion to show his appreciation of the young and growing country, which he lone thought would ultimately be the bulwark of the Catholic Church. SERVICES IN PORTO RICO.

By Th« Tribune Association.) Rome. July 29— History almost repeats Itself on the eve of the conclave. The Secretary of State Is the leading candidate for the tiara, as in 1846. and the dean of the Sacred College Is again against him. The undetermined point is whether another Mastal Terrettl can be discov ered in time to prevent the election of Cardinal Rampolla. who. with Italian. Spanish and French support, will probably have from fifteen to twenty votes on the first two ballots. Al though Cardinal Rampolla's partisans admit that two-thirds of the cardinals are unfavorable to his canvass, or uncommitted, they are confi dent of his election on the fourth ballot. They assume that neither Cardinal Vannutelli nr>r Cardinal Gotti can unite the anti-Rampolla forces, and that a compromise candidate cannot be brought forward early enough to repeat Mastai Fsrretti's achievement. The local press Is brimming over with rumors, but no cardinal has broken silence. The search for a candidate who will divide tha conclave the least will begin on Friday without the as sistance of the embassies or the press. A counter demonstration to the picturesque mediaeval scenes at St. Peter's was successfully carried out by the White party to-day. This was a long procession of liberal societies, carry ing draped banners and hundreds of tasteful wreaths to the Pantheon in memory of the murdered King. Shops were closed and em blems of mourning displayed all along the Corso. and an immense concourse of spectators wit nessed the march, listening sympathetically to "Garribaldi's Hymn," applauding heartily the small file of red shlrted veterans of the famous army, and welcoming the representatives of the workingmen's societies, who were protesting against socialism and anarchy. It was a spon taneous outburst of loyalty to the monarchy. I. N. F. READY FOR CONCLAVE. Short Meeting of Cardinals — Mom for King at Pantheon. Rome. July 29— At to-day's meeting of the Congregation the forms to be used in voting at the conclave were distributed among the car dinals. After the meeting Cardinal Oreglia re quested the cardinals to visit their cells and be prepared at to-morrow's meeting to present any complaint which they might have. Supersti tious people here find an omen in the fact that Cardinal Rampolla drew apartment No. SS, which in the book of the lottery stands for Pope, and consequently they believe that fate has marked him to be the next Pope. Cardinal Agli ardi has given his cell, near the Slstlne Chapel. to Cardinal Caetonl on account of the latter's illness. Over the door of each cell has beun placed the coat of arms of the cardinal who is to occupy it. Should all the sixty-two cardinals now in Rome enter the conclave there will be the largest attendance In history. The conclave which elected Leo was attended by sixty-one cardinals. Popes have be^n elected by as few as nine. The ecclesiastics who watch the sliding doors which will be the only means of commu- nication between the conclave and the outside world have been requested to be present at th* Vatican at 5 o'clock Friday afternoon to as sume their duties. The sliding doors will only be opened between 9 and 11:30 o'clock in the morning and between 5 and 7 o'clock in th«» evening. A CONTRAST OF CEREMONIES. Rome this morning was the scene of a dra matic contrast. While at the Vatican, in the Sistine Chapel, a solemn requiem mass was being intoned, another and no less solemn requiem mass was being celebrated in the Pan theon for the repose of the soul of the late King Humbert. King Victor Emmanuel drove to the Pantheon to meet the Queen Dowager Margaret, who was dressed in deepest black. Mother and son entered the Pantheon, heard the mass and placed wreaths on the tombs of King Humbert and Kingr Victor ExnmanueL The en trance and exit of their majesties were wit nessed by a large crowd. At 11 o'clock the members of the Municipality of Rome, with the exception of those of their number who a few days ago went to the Vati can to condole with the Camerlengo on Pope Leo's death, visited the Pantheon and placed wreaths on the tombs of the two kings. In the evening there was a public procession through the streets to the tombs. It passed off quietly, though thousands of persons witnessed the demonstration, and the procession itself was over a mile long. Along the route the piazzas and streets were thronged with orderly specta tors, who heartily cheered the red shirted Garl baldian veterans and other representatives of Italian liberty. All the shops were shut, and there were more outward signs of mourning than have been seen in Rome in recent years. The procession, which was mostly composed of local patriotic societies and bands, was pictu resque. The Veterans' Corps carried many banners and Italian flags draped with crape, besides hundreds of i aths, which they laid on the tombs of the two king? at the Pantheon. The general opinion was expressed that the Anti-Clericals succeeded in making a successful counter demonstration against the recent activ ity of the Clericals, but that they did so with out any breach of propriety and without wound ing the feelings of the Catholics. FOREIGN' MASS IN SISTINE CHAPEL. The second requiem mas 3in the Sistine Chapei was termed the foreign mass. The cardinal who celebrated It was Cardinal Kopp. Bishop of Breslau, a German, assisted by three foreign cardinals, «Joo»senF, Archbishop of Mechlin; Gruscha. Archbishop of Vienna, and Perraud. Bishop of Anton, and on« Italian cardinal. Dl rietro. Th" Vatican, as a ntie, provides a carriage b.b4 horses for the cardinals, all the horses being black, but the authorities were not pre pared for so many cardinals, and \\«»n» obliged to give th*» last arrivals bay horses. Estimates place the cost to' the Holy See of the- various ceremonies, from the death of Pope Leo to the election of his successor, if it takes place within a few days, at $400,000. Only two cardinals are absent. Cardinal Celesta, Archbishop of Palermo, cannot leave Palermo because of his health, and Cardinal Moran. Archbishop of Sydney. N. S. W , al- Though he has left Sydney, cannot, it id be lieved, arrive here before August 20, when. It is supposed, the conclave will be over. Prince rhlgi. marshal of th* conclave, visited Cardinal Gibbons to-day. MANY PRIESTS AT ALBANY SERVICE. Albany.

SPANISH CONSUL DEPOSED Arbitrary Action of Venezuela Reported from La Guayra. Port of Spain. Trinidad, July 29.— Passengers who have Just arrived from La Guayra, Venez uela, report that on last Monday the Spanish Consul at La Guayra was deprived of his exequatur as a result of friction with the local authorities over the Spanish claims In his dis trict against Venuezeia. According to their Information. It seems that the local authorities established a commission to revise the claims presented by Spaniards and other foreigners to the mixed tribunals under the terms of the protocols. This commission, according to the statements of these passen gers, was composed of military officers who were said to have been appointed for the pur pose of Intimidating witnesses. The Spanish Consul requested the authorities at La Guayra to give him an authorization to attend the meet ings of the commission. It is alleged that the Prefect of the commission, a former actor, re plied in a letter In which he spoke of the con sul as |"the representative of pillagers," and subsequently distributed printed copies of the letter in the streets of La Guayra. The federal authorities are then said to have withdrawn the consul's exequatur without informing the Spanish Minister. REUGIOUS BIOTS AT YEZD. Many Babis Killed and Mntilated with Governor's Consent. London, July 30.— "The Times'* this morning describes a serious religious riot in the city and province of Yezd. in Central Persia, which lasted more than a fortnight and culminated at the end of June. The outbreak was directed against religious reformers called Babis. In the city for two days every Babi found was butchered by the rabble, and the mutilated bodies were dragged through the streets, followed by ex ultant crowds.

The decision continues: "While it Is possible by examination of a rmm number of genuine signatures, extending ov - a long period of t!m«\ to discscver In scir' cases an absence or modification of one or o .' of those characteristics, it is wholly lmprobsftu that in one signature there should occur an ab' eence or modification of nearly all those ctaarac terlstics. The testimony of the handwriting expert, jg.

The testimony (- Mr. Townsen 1. the paying teller of the Broo^ Trust Company, is quite as convincing as ti» testimony of Mr. Carvalho. lira, Vai-jnti^ kept her bank account in the trust com^aa, for many years, and he was accustomed to pay. ing her checks, and ha says that he would sot pay a check upon the signature in question, ant Is equally emphatic with Mr. Carvalho in hi* opinion that the signature in question U no; genuine. It is a fact entitled to some weight u;oa tab issue that no expert was produced to testify t>» the genuineness of the disputed signature, «]. though it appeared that defendant's attorney was In consultation with an expert during th* progress of the trial, presumably for the purpose of procuring such testimony. There U ether evi dence In the case which Is Strom confirmatory of the spuriouaness of the deed in Quesilon. Th, defendant is the mother of defendant's attorney. She is a woman over ninety years of age. r>_ fendanrs attorney has a power of attorney, by virtue of which he has absolutely controlled hi* mother's real and personal estate for a: least thirty years. A conveyance to his mother is. for all practical purposes, a conveyance to hfca. He has always had control of the deed la ques tion. The deed purports to be executed May 23. 1883; II was recorded June 27. 1900. By deed dated November 27. 1897. Mrs. Marie A. Valen tine conveyed to Samuel P. Hinckley, for ih» consideration of $1.1 I a portion of tne prec ises which purported to have b?en coaveys-J by her to the defendant by deed In question, ft Is not reasonable to believe that she would co vey by a full covenant warranty deed land & had previously conveyed to her mother-ta.-U» and lands to which site had no title. Ret t!* death of Mrs. Valentine, defendant's attorney, fa a suit against him for an accounting of his wtffj estate, was charged with the receipt cf theJUOO consideration for the Hir.ekley deed as agent for his wife. If a genuine deed for the property to his mother. the defendant, had been in existence at the time of the execution of the Hinckley deed, its production upon the accounting would have been a perfect defence to this charge of $1,100 against him. No such deed was then produced. In the suit of the children of de fendant's attorney against him concerning ths same Cedarhurst property, tried in this court and decided in favor of the plaintiffs, and th« decision recently affirmed by the Appellate Di vision, the production of a genuine deed to th» defendant executed before the death of Maria jL Valentine would also have been a perfect da fence to the action. No such deed was then pro duced. Upon the whole case, for the reasons stated, I am convinced that the deed is spurious and Cat the signature there is not the genuine of Marie A. Valentine, and it follows that the plaiatifb are entitled to judgment for the relief demand*? in their complaint, with costs. ARRESTS IN DANVILLE. Grand Jury Ordered to Indict Mob Leaders.
