The cardinal said: "The appearance of the holy father is Intensely painful. He maintains his men tal acumen, but his brave spirit Is terribly broken. This was especially apparent to Ine. who am used to seeing him often. I have observed a great change In his phy sical condition during the last five days. His words are now uttered with difficulty, and he raises his hand only after an ef fort. "His face is excessively emaclatcd and his eyes are deeply sunken. His extreme weak ness Is evident at the first glance; there remains only a shadow of the man." The congregation of the Sacred Rites was to assemble In the presence of the pope July 13 to discuss Joan of Arc's title to a heroic degree for sanctiflcatlon. but the condition of the pontiff will compel the abandonment of the meeting and the deter mination of the saintly status of Joan of Arc.

The pontiff, at first was not In a good humor, saying he could not stand re maining so many hours in t>ed. never hav ing been accustomed to lie down for longer than four or Ave hours at a time. The doc tor. however, succeeded, most patiently, in convincing him that when persons are ill It Is necessary to change their habits even not t(> be so comfortable. "But is it really necessary?" asked the pontiff. Dr. Lapponl replied: "It is not indispen sable, but It will certainly assist our ef forts." g concluded the pope. "I must do After this the pontiffs face again as sumed its habitual bright, benevolent ex pression and he smiled as he had done in Ills best moments.

On leaving the sick room Dr. Mazzoni was surrounded by the church dignitaries who were waiting In the ante-chamber, anxious for news. A picket of the Noble Guard. In their gor geous uniforms, stood silently among the somberly-gowned prelates, giving a pleasing touch of color to the scene. Cardinal Rampolla waited for Dr. Maz zoni in the throne room, and when the physician appealed the pai?al secretary of state requested him to make a detailed re P?. ? 'he P0Pes condition. After com plying Dr. Mazzoni complained to the car dinal of the gossip and criticisms concern ing the doctors' diagnosis of the Illness of the pope and the treatment being adminis tered. In reply Cardinal Ramijolla said he bad complete and unbounded confidence in the physicians. This is why," the cardinal added, "I never interfered in any way in the con sultations. On leaving the Vatican Dr. Mazzoni was stopped and asked for the news by Cardinal t-avagnis. who. with a number of other car 0 nals called early at the Vatican for In formation, while other cardinals sent their eecretaries for the latest reports. The wives of Count Canall and Count Moroni, nieces of the pope, having express ed a desire to see the pontiff, he said: I must refer them to my doctors. If they will allow me to do so I shall be very happy to receive them." While Dr. Mazzoni was in the sick room the pope took a cup of meat broth To understand the sudden and radical changes occurring, not so much in the pope s condition as in the feeling of the public when rumors are circulated about the Improved or retrograde state of the pontiffs health, one should understand the state of nervousness, likened to an electri fied condition of the atmosphere, which lias been aroused throughout Itome. aroused throughout Rome and especially ?rre,Uid H e Vat,,kun ,luri"K 'he past week of to i> " ? *nxlety.

Gennaro Is their greatest ?aint and his mitre Is preserved at Naples, It la said to work miracles. The aristo cracy and clergy of Naples begged the archbishop to send the mitre to Rome and he allowed It to htave the city for the first time In many years. The precious relic was entrusted to Mgr. Prince CaraceKflo, who arrived with tt wifely in Rome today. At the Vatican the mitre was received by Cardinal Rampolla and Monslgnor Bisleti, who. with (treat ceremony thanked the Neapolitans for their piety and self-sacri fice in allowing the mitre to come here.

This is the Extreme Limit Fixed by the Pope's Physicians. A dispatch to the New York Herald from Rome yesterday nays: Slgnor Quiseppe Zanardelll. the Italian premier, had a con versation today with Profs. Rossoni and Mazzoni. who informed him that in any case Pope Leo cannot survive beyond ten days. Your correspondent had an interview with Dr. Lapponi in the Vatican. The pope's physician said: "The pontiff is not at present in a condi tion apparently graver than he wai in a week ago. At the beginning of his illness he had a critical attack, and since that time the malady ha? followed the normal course. , . , "It has been declared miraculous that the pope should have lived through the last days, but I, who have been aware of his great vitality for a long time, should not be surprised to see him survive longer than another week. "However, tonjorrow or the next day It will almost certainly be necessary to pec form still another operation to draw off the liquid, and the nature of the pneumonia may render necessary several similar oper ations. It is almost Impossible that in his present enfeebled condition the pope will consent to undergo so many operations, yet it is my opinion that he will resist the Inroads of the malady for a much longer time than even the most optimistic predic tions foresee." HOPE AT THE LEGATION. Strong Feeling That the Pope May Recover. Mgr. Falconlo. the papal delegate to the Catholic Church in America, received a cablegram at l?:45 today concerning the condition of Pope Leo XIII, which had the effect of keeping up the hope of members of the delegate's household. This cable gram follows: "After a calm night the holy father feels somewhat better." At the house of the delegate there is a strong feeling that the pope will recover and live some time. This feeling is based on the cablegrams that have been received from Cardinal Rampolla. On Thursday the news from that source was more hope ful than at any previous time since the illness of the pontiff occurred. The tele grams of yesterday and today have not indicated a loss of hope of ultimate re covery. At the legation house It is believed that there would be no reason for Cardinal Rampolla to take a view of the condition of the pope more hopeful than a natural judgment based on interviews with the pope and his physicians. It is thought that if there was really imminent likeli hood of his death in the opinion of Cardi nal Rampolla that belief would be more strongly reflected in the messages received here. Members of the delegate's household to day expressed surprise when told, in re sponse to a question in relation to the pope's chances of recovery, that the preva lent opinion was that his death would oc cur within a few days, and perhaps at any moment. The report that the Vatican would keep the death a secret until time had been al lowed for notifying the heads of govern ments was not credited here. It was said that In order to do that It would be neces sary to keep the matter from the public for six or seven hours, and that was hardly re garded as possible under the circumstances, even if there should be a desire to do so at the Vatican. It was thought that the death of the pope must become common knowl edge in Rome almost immediately from the time the physicians state that life has de parted. SECRET OF LEO'S HEALTH. Regularity and Diet Given as the Chief Causes. The Baltimore Sun says: The pope, writes a correspondent in the Scotsman, has never been outside the grounds of the Vatican since he was hailed pope. The Vatican is on one of the most unhealthful of the hills of Rome. He was born a physical weakling, and has been Inclined to sickness all his life. Yet every day he has toiled more hours than tradesmen permit their sturdy adherents to toil. For twenty-flve years he has per sonally directed the policies and acts of his world-embracing church, even to details. He has been harassed by the most vexa tions problems that have disturbed Catho lic Rome since the days of Luther. And when he became pope he had been hard at work for tlfty years'. Why has he lived? Why has he been able to work and worn hard and well at the most exhaust ing of all labor? How has he withstood that fatal combination?work and worry? Why has he not been compelled to take "long vacations" and "much-needed rests?" Why has he never been down with "nerv ous prostration?" The answer to all these questions is in two words?regularity, diet. The human body Is nothing but a strong, delicate ma chine. It must be treated as a machine. It must be run regularly; It must be rested regularly; It must be repaired regularly. The great secret of Leo's power and ca pacity In spite of his feeole body and his ninety-three years is diet. Diet means : enough fuel?plenty, but not fuel to choke I the furnace. The pope eats for the good of h.3 body, not for the amusement of his palate. He lets his mind tell him when to stop?not greedy, blind, selfish appetite. He eats so little that the average man or woman would call it starvation. But he eats enough, and it is of the best qual ity. At times he overeats-for the appe tite for food is the strongest, the most in sidious, the most dangerous In the human body. He Is promptly punished, his feeble ness making lilm luckier in that respect than are most overeaters. He doesn't then let his palate cajole and fool him Into thinking he is 111 because he drinks too much. He apologizes by eating nothing for a while, and returns to his routine. LITTLE CEREMONY OVER VOLPINI Deceased Prelate Neglected in the Ex citement Over the Pope. A dispatch from Rome yesterday says: The extraordinary confusion prevailing at the Vatican outside the immediate vicin ity of the pope's sick room Is demonstrated by the remarkable neglect to make even the most ordinary preparations for the In terment of Mgr. Volplnl, the secretary of the consistory and canon of St. Peter's, who died suddenly yesterday of syncope. Usually the funeral of so high an ecclesias tic would have been a prominent event In Rome, but today it was completely forgot ten in shadow of the great impending loss to the church. The body of Mgr. Volplnl seems to have been permitted to remain almost in the condition In which he died. The remains were not laid out in the customary man ner. Only two lighted candles were pro vided, and they were permitted tf> burn to the sockets and had almost expired, when a noble Roman lad}' came this morning to view the body. She raised an indignant outcry at such a condition of affairs. Hasty arrangements were then made for the In terment. At 5 o'clock the coffin was brought down from Mgr. Volplnl's room, situated Imme diately above the pope's apartments, and placed in a hearse of the fourth class, drawn by two horses, such as is usually employed for small tradesmen and compar atively poor persons. A few choir boys, monks and priests headed the procession to the Church of Santa Maria, where the final rites were celebrated. There was an entire absence of ecclesiastic dignitaries and prominent members of the laity, who in or dinary circumstances would attend the cer emony. The great bell of St. Peter's was tolled a few moments only, which Is re markable. in view of- the fact that the news of Mgr. Volplni's death was kept from the pope, who must have heard the bell, which Is only tolled for prelates and eccle siasts of the high order. At the request of the Austrian consul In Chicago the authorities at Budapest have arrested Edward Danlelovskl on a charge of murdering bi? In Chicago. THE DISTRICT FRANK OFFICIAL RULING AS TO ITS USE ASKED. Formal Action of the Commissioners - Today?Conference With the Third Assistant Postmaster General. The District Commissioners decided today to take up with the Post Office Depart ment the matter of the use of official en velopes and to secure a ruling upon which to base ail future actions. Commissioner Macfarland, representing the District board, called upon Mr. Madden, the third assilltant postmaster general, this morning, and talked with him Informally on the subject. Mr. Macfarland stated that the Interview was very satisfactory, but. being informal, he was not at liberty to make a definite statement concerning it. There has never been a ruling with regard to the use of the "franked" envelopes by the District au thorities. and the Commissioners are anx ious that the matter shall be settled now far all time. Upon his return from the Post Office De partment Commissioner Macfarland recom mended to the board that the whole matter of the use of official envelopes be formally brought before the Post Office Department, with a request for an official ruling. A question has been raised as to the use of the "franked" envelopes of the Commis sioners for the appointment of the commit tees for the celebration of the Fourth of July under the auspices of the Commission ers Mr. Macfarland. as president of the District board, and. under the order of the Commissioners, ex-offldo chairman of the Independence day celebration committee, brought the matter formally before the board this morning. On his motion he was authorized to take the matter up with the post office officials and to present to the department the reasons for the use of the official envelopes. Formal Board Action. Commissioner Macfarland stated to the board that the only use which had been made of the envelope was und?r the offi cial order of the Commissioners, which was In accordance with numerous precedents, and must be followed every time that the Commissioners appointed a committee of citizens for District purposes. For exam ple, should the Commissioners accept the invitation of the St. Louis exposition to have the District represented In a District of Columbia day. and appoint a committee of citizens to make arrangements therefor, It would be an official and not a personal act. The Official Order. The order of the Commissioners providing for the celebration of the day was brought to the attention of the postal authorities by Commissioner Macfarland^ and was as followB: May 19, 1903. I move that the Commissioners of the District of Columbia provide for a general celebration of Independence day. the 4th of July next, and Invite the participation of the citizens of the District of Columbia. I believe that the nation's birthday should be celebrated In the national capital, under the auspices of Its executive government. I am assured by representative citizens that the Commissioners would have the co-op eration of the community In such an ob : servance of the day. I move that the Commissioners appoint a committee of arrangements, of which the president of the board of Commissioners shall l?e ex officio chairman, composed of the following persons: Admiral George Dewey, president of the Thomas Jefferson Memorial Association of the United States; Rear Admiral Henry C. Taylor, president of the Sons of the Revo lution; Dr. J. W. Bayne, president of the Sons of the American Revolution: Mrs. Herschel Main, state regent of the Daugh ters of the American Revolution; S.

RUSSIA TAKES ACTION. Eight Hundred Arrest* Made for the. Eischinef Massacre. Some very Interesting and. pertinent In formation of an entirely reliable character concerning the Kischinef massacre has reached Washington. It appears from advices received today that the great storm of protest which arose In the United States and many other civilized countries against the murderous attacks upon the Jews in Kischinef last spring has not been without solid, practical effect. The Infor mation received today states that the Rus sian government has been moved to vigor ous action in the matter of investigating and punishing those who were responsible for the Kischinef massacre. Eight hundred arrests have been made, and as a result of the preliminary examination 350 persons have been remanded for trial In the lower courts.

Qulnn. twenty-seven years of age. living at 1015 New Jersey avenue northwest, committed suicide shortly after noon today on the White House grounds Immediately opposite the Emergency Hos pital. One bullet fired from a 32-caliber revolver Into the right temple accomplished the man's death. Judging from the cir cumstances surrounding the affair, there was no mistaking the Intention of the man to end his life. He had retired to a spot about fifty yards from the sidewalk In the shade of a tree, where he deliberately spread out a news paper and sat down upon ft. Then taking a revolver, which he had evidently but re cently purchased, from its box. he loaded it with a .single cartridge and. placing the muzzle of the weapon to bis right temple, fired the fatal shot. Dr. Dunn of the Emergency Hospital heard the report of the pistol and Imme diately ran In the direction of the shot. When he reached the spot Quinn was dead. Several parties In the neighborhood came upon the scene and identified the man as William F. Qulnn, a printer. A card bear ing that name from Columbia Typo graphical Union. No. 101, and a card of admission to the Jolly Fat Men's Cltib, was found In the man's pocket. The coro ner was notified, and the body was taken to the morgue. The dead man was tlw son of Mr. and Mrs. John Quinn. who reside at 1015 New Jersey avenue northwest with their family. A reporter for The Star broke the news of the suicide to a brother of the dead man at the family home. The brother was very much shocked at the news, and stated that he knew of nothing that should have prompted his brother to the deed. He stated that William came home sick yes terday afternoon from the Roberts printing establishment, and he supposed the hot weather had affected his mind, although he never intimated any intention of taking his own life. The family will take charge of the body this afternoon, and the coroner will Issue a certificate of death by suicide. The dead man served two years In the Philippines during the late war. He was a native of Washington and unmarried. EXPECTS A THUNDER STORM. Forecaster Henry Looks for One About 5 O'Clock. "The present Indications warrant the pre diction that the people of Washington will continue In the grasp of Old Sol for the next three or four days." Prof. Henry, fore caster at the weather bureau, made the above confession when seen by a Star re porter this afternoon. He admitted that such a prediction is discouraging, but said that at this time of the year a spade must be called a "spade" in weather parlance. Therefore, he said, he would not make a prediction which he saw no hope of ful filling. Thunder storms of small volume, afford ing temporary relief, are the best the weather officials can promise the people of Washington for the next few days, and it is more than likely that tomorrow will be as hot as it has been today. The first of the promised storms is scheduled to arrive here about 5 o'clock from the District. There is solace In the information that the people of the Ohio and Mississippi val leys are undergoing the same trials and tribulations of which the residents of the .District are complaining. It will excite .envy, however, to know that the south At lantic states are the coolest section of the country today. The temperature at the weather bureau at 2 o'clock was 02 degrees. Up to a late hour this afternoon no heat cases were treated at the local hospitals. Mrs. Elizabeth Page Dupree of Kf27 L street, was prostrated by the heat of yes terday afternoon while at the City Hall. She was soon revived and sent to her home. The thermometer at Affleck's at 2 o'clock registered 100 degrees. "QUIET HOUR" SERVICES. Christian Endeavorers Pass Another Busy Day In Denver.
