ALL SORTS OF RUMORS RECOGNIZED THE CTVTL AUTHOR ITY IN VENICE. Has Announced That He Will Not Ab dicate Papal Claims?His Personal Desires. BV WILLIAM E. CURTIS. Sl<ecial Correspondence of The Evening Star and Chicago U?oxd-U?raM. HOME. December 5. 1WH The new pope la an enigma which the Romans have not yet solved. He la so un like anything that has ever appeared In their own experience or In the histories and traditions of the papacy that they cannot comprehend his character or his purposes and they are in a state of continual wonder as to what he is going to do next. They are prepared for anything, evidently, for the most sensational and absurd rumors about his intentions and policy are contlnu ally in circulation and are given credit by the leading rewspapers. The other day one of the most reliable of the Italian dailies announced in serious double-leaded lines that a reconciliation be tween tho holy see and the civil authorities had already been arranged, and Intimated that the pope and the King of Italy might dine together In a few days. This nas provoked official denial from his holiness, indirectly, however, but Indicates the expectation of the public mind, which will not be surprised by anything that may happen, and here Is a Justification for many of these reports. Pius X lias made innnovatlons that are surprising and from time to time drops Incidental remarks that give ground for almost any amount of con ure. The new pope la a democrat from the down of his head to the heels of his new white shoes. His predecessor was an aris tocrat to his finger tips, and both exempli fied their birth, their ancestry, their educa tion and their environment before and after they were elevated to the throne. Leo XIII was a patrician of the highest type, whose family has occupied the same residence and cultivated the same ground f.w five centuries, and the same tenantry have tilled their fields and gathered their harvests. Piux X was born a peasant, and his family belong to the humble. Indus trious. Intelligent and independent popula tion of the villages that are scattered through the northern mountains of the kingdom: a hardy, cool-headed, practical, self-reliant race. The Pope's Ideas. Shortly after his coronation It became known among people who take active Inter est in the affairs of the Vatican that the new pope had radical and what most of the cardinals considered revolutionary ideas concerning the policy of the church toward the civil government of Italy. For those who are not familiar with the situation I will explain that the pope still claims the right of exercising civil as well as spirit ual authority over what were formerly known as the papal states of Italy, and the presence of the king, the ministry and I the parliament in Rome is regarded as an I invasion of his territory and a usurpation | of his authority. As he has no army he cannot enforce or defend his rights, and hence he Is. theoretically, a prisoner In ! his palace (the Vatican) and his capital (the city of Rome) Is in a state of siege. I A small faction of the sacred college Is favorable to the recognition of the au thority of the king and the establishment of cordial relations between the church and the civil government. These are called ?reconclliatlonists." and their leader Is Cardinal Vincentl Vannuteill. who Is re garded as one of the ablest statesmen In the college and wns the foremost spirit of the combination which elected Joseph Sarto to the papal throne. The other faction, which comprises at least three-fourths of the cardinals are called '?temporallsts." because they Insist upon the exercise of temporal power by the pope, and Cardinal Rampolla. recently secretary of state and the most prominent I candidate for pope, la the recognised lead : er. They are also so extreme In their views that they forbid loyal Catholics to i vote at election. Rampolla Is not only a great power In the church and one of the ablest statesmen of this age. but is held responsible for the policy of the holy see during the last seventeen years while he has been secretary of state. Cardinal Sarto had been recognized with the recon cillationlsts for many years, and is the only member of the sacred college who was personally acquainted with the late King Humbert and enjoyed similar Na tions with the present king. Victor Em manuel III. This, however, is due to peculiar circum stances as well as to his independent spirit and his habit of acting upon his own judg ment. As long ago as the fourth century the pope granted semi-independence In spir itual things to the republic of Venice, In cluding the right to choose a patriarch for the government of the diocese, who should enjoy almost papal dignity and the highest ecclesiastical jurisdiction, superior to that of primate, metropolitan or archbishop. Triumph for Sarto. The kingdom of Italy, being the successor of the republic of Venice, claimed the ar clent right to select the patriarch, and In 1?K1. when Cardinal Sarto waa appointed t.i fill a vacancy In that office by the pope. King Humbert refused to recognize him, and a long controversy followed, which ended In a triumph for Sarto. who in the meantime had been exercising the duties of the office and had won the confidence and respect of the civil officials. They rocf n mended his recognition on the ground that no better man could be found for the place. Sarto naturally appreciated the compli ment. and during the last ten years has maintained cordial and even Intimate rela tions with the civil authorities at Venice, although he has never attempted to inter fere in politics In any way. A year or so after this episode King Humbert went to Venice to meet the Em peror of Germany, and in anticipation of that event Cardinal Sarto informed the of ficials of the Vatican of his Intentions to pay his respects to the king. The sugges tion was not received with favor by Leo XIII. and Cardinal Rampolla sent him a hint that such a recognition of the civil power was unwise and Inexpedient, and that It would be more politic for him to make it convenient to be absent from Ven ice as long as the sovereigns were In that city. Sarto thought differently, and with out further consultation with the Vatican, upon his own responsibility, carried out his original intention and paid formal visits to the emperor and king, which were returned by both of them. Caused a Sensation. This incident created a decided sensation. The public expected that the cardinal would be rebuked for the act and admonished not to repeat It. but It Is understood that Ram polla avoided further reference to the mat ter. A year or two later, when King Hum bert and the Queen Margarita visited Venice to witness the launching of a cruiser. Cardinal Sarto not only again ex changed formal visits with them, but ac cepted an invitation from the minls.er of marine to participate In the ceremonies. He blessed the new ship, standing upon the same platform with the king and the civil officials, and attended a banquet and other functions given In their honor. Two months before the death of Leo Xltl the present king, Victor Emmanuel III, went to Venice to open the annual exposi tion of northern Italy. Cardinal Sarto again participated in the formal proceed ings. By order of the king he was given precedence over all civil officials, and came next after the king and queea themselves. When he called at the palaoe to pay his respects to the k'ng the latter happened to be engaged with the prefect, the official of highest rank la the provtnoe. The cardinal instructed the servants not to disturb the conference, and seated himself quietly la the ante room to await his turn among a tthrong of other visitors. When the king learned of his presence the GREEN otfelACK is the most generously praised tea. The rea son is obvious. It is absolutely pure. Try it. <teI2-4.tn.th.18e doors of the audience chamber were In stantly opened and the card nal was re ceived with marked cordlaflty by both his majesty and the prefect and remained in conversation with them for several min utes. When he started to return to the archiopiscopal palace the king Insisted upon accompanying him the cnt re distance, ao cepted an invitation to rest and have re freshments and remained with him for half an hour or more. Thereafter and during the entire proceedings Cardinal Sarto, by order of the king, was received with mili tary honors whenever ho appeared In pub lic. As he Is the only member of the Sacred College who has ever had such relations with the civil authorities s nee the organisa tion of the king.lom of Italy thirty years ago. his conduct has -naturally been the subject of much comment and criticism, but he was never censured by the pope. Many Conjectures. These facts were well known at the time of Sarto's election as pope. When the result was anounnibed people at once began to conjecture w^iat might happen. Rumors of the most! sensational kind have been In circulation, and the news papers, as I have stateJTat the beginning of this letter, have not,only made predic tions, but have gone so far as to publish positive announcement^ that negotiations for a reconciliation between the Vatican and the Qulrlnal ho?l begun. Thls~has caused more excitement and anxiety among the cardinals than in any other quaretr, because the new pope has shown such an Independence of spirit and Indif ference to their opinions and such an in clination to disregard custom and prece dent that the members of the curia are In a chronic state of nervous apprehension about him. He has shown unmistakable tendencies to follow his own Judgment, but somebody must have taken the re sponsibility of approaehlng him. for at the recent consistory he made his first formal announcement, and It related to this particular subject. While he did not declare his policy In definite terms, he made It very cleap that he has no Intention of abandoning the claim of the sovereign pontiff to the tem poral power of Rome, and stated posi tively that he Bhould follow In the foot steps of his predecessor ,ln maintaining them. ' - l(>1 His Persona^ Desires. Without- the slightest /doubt this an nouncement was Intended as a consola tion to the anxious cardinals and to set their minds at rest, 'Af-w^ts also Intended to put an end to the wild rumors that have been, and othejrwisc^would continue to be. circulated. At.tho same time, in private conversation, with particular friends and member^ of the clergy from different parts Of the world, his holiness has declared again jujcL again that he wants no temporal fcow?r himself; that his kingdom will be purely a spiritual kingdom; that he will have nothing to do with politics, nor with international af fairs. His mission Wj-to" save souls and not nations. He oflen^QUotes the admoni tion of Christ to render unto Caesar the things that are Cuesai^s and tfVXJod the things that ii-e God's-I He ;hae made no secret of his view^^s 4o tlie duty of the head of the church in this respect, or of his ambition to exercise a purely spiritual Jurisdiction. 4 He has often !?aid that he would like to restore the Christianity of the Gospels and roturn to the days when the pope of Rome was a bishop and- not a potentate. He would withdraw the nuncios, or ambassa dors. from the several European capitals, and would not be displeased If France. Spain. Austria and other countries would recall their ambassadors to the Vatican. He has admitted that he does not under stand the necessity ot nuncios and does not appreciate their Importance. He thinks that the duties they are now performing should belong to the archbishops and the primates of the church In the several na tions. Besides, the nuncios cost an enor mous sum of money, which might be much better applied, particularly as the Vatican is severely cramped for funds Just now. Contrary to Late Pope's Views. These ideas are directly contrary to those of the late Leo XIII and Cardinal Ram polla. who spent large sums of money In maintaining the several embassies of the holy see at Paris, Vienna, Madrid, Brus sells and other capitals of Europe and South America, and treated the ambassa dors accredited to the Vatican with special distinction. You will remember that I ' wrote you two years ago about a desperate fight that was made by Admiral Rampolia against the proposition of the French gov ernment to close its embassy at Rome, and the anxiety that was shown to secure the appointment of an ambassador from the United States to the Vatican. But the new pope would not care, and indeed he might be ple;ised. If all of the pnpal embassies were closed tomorrow. If he could have his way he would recall every nuncio and give to the poor the money that is spent to maintain them. But. although ho is theoretically an auto crat and personally a man of very strong character. Independent habits and great de termination, he cannot carry out his own wishes In this and several other policies, because the cardinals will not permit it. He Is too wise and too prudent to take the re sponsibility of defying them in such an Im portant matter of policy and precedent. While he will not abandon the course fol lowed by his predecessor, he will not at tempt to exercise any Influence In diplo matic affairs or interfere in the policies of the nations. Cardinals Bejoiced. The cardinals are very much rejoiced at his recent announcement. Their anxieties are. greatly relieved, and they are more hopeful that he will submit to advice and be very moderate and prudent In all his acts and do nothing radidfcg,-^ revolutionary. They explain that hi? opinions are due to Ignorance and Inexpferiejfce; that he has never taken Interest in anything outside of his own diocese; that jpeflspeaks only the Venetian dialect; that lie lias never crossed the boundaries of the kingdom; that he is unfamiliar with for^fi^Cffalrs; reads no foreign newspapers, kaigws no foreigners and is purely provincMg" They are confix dent that he will chaS3m^&is attitude as he acquires knowledge wjaTexperlence. but those who know him beet think differently. They declare that few>?mefnbers of the sa cred college can teach. Giuseppe Sarto any thing; that he knows as much as the most learned of them; that he Is the wisest of all; that his opinions aro>4)ie result of forty years of study and reflection. and that while he may not accompli^) ail the reforms he desires, the holy see yriU have no interna tional politics as long1-as,he is pope. ? ? ! i' Property Found, Kan Arrested, William De Van, a patient under treat mcnt at Providence Hospital, was placed in custody this morning by Precinct De tective Lohman of the fifth precinct, for the authorities at Forrestville, Prince George's county, M& A message was re ceived here last night from Forrestville stating that 4 store at that place had been broken into Sunday night and several pairs of socks, a pair of rubber boots and a pair of trousers were taken.
