LoNiioN, March 21. Late despatches
from Rome say that the condition of
'Pope Plus X. 1.1 very grave,
Whllo his phslclans and advisers
refuse to admit that the III health of the
Pontiff Is sufficient to cause any Im
mediate apprehension, It Is known that
his condition Is most unfavorable.
It nns iinnntinctd to-day that the
Pope showed some Improvement, but
that, as n precautionary measure, nr.
Maiehlnfava, li Im physician, Insisted
that the. Pontiff should not celebrate
innsw this morning. It was said that
Mgr. Itessan, his private secretary,
however, received communion from the
Pontiff and otllclated at the mass In
Ills npartmrnf".
It was planned that the Pope should
grant n larce collective audience on
Tuesday. Imitations have leen Issued,
but now It Is practically assuied that
the audience will not be held, but that
the Pope will remain In his favorite
Apartment, closely watched by his
phvslclans.

charred bodies of four persons wetc

The body of Wharton was lii the eel-

I The police theory Is that Wharton and
Kenthlll engaged in a duel in tlie cellar
and the man who won then fired the
house after he had murdered the wife
and child, so as to hide the crime and
then burned himself to death as a
penance for his deed.

second street to Long Island City, the
ownership of which passes to the city
under the contracts for the dual system

Tl.e alterations permit tho running
of curs of the type used In the stibway
to be operated by the third rail. The
tunnel was originally planned for the
use of trolley cars.
The orders for tho Inspection are
considered of importance because of
the statement made by Chairman Mc

been so strong, but he will make tho
flight, he says, Just ns soon as March
shows lamblike qualities.
He is going to fly by way of the tall
