She expected to fin ish the repairs next day and wished to be reported all well. Tbe place where tbe Umbiia was sighted is about 240 miles east of Halifax. Captain Duck of the Manbanset went to the Cunard line office to tell the re assuring newt to tlie American agjente of tbe line, and this is the way the cap tain told the story: "The weather was very hazy atl the time, and it was not possible to teeiany distance ahead. We were within : twc miles of the Umbria before we capgtit eight of her. The Umbria was lying to witb ber tea anchors out to- keep her well into the wind. She was drifting with the sea, and on that account was quite eaty. No canvas was up. The steamship wat drifting eattward at the rate of a mile an hour. I spoke the ship and asked it any assist ance wat needed, and the reply was 'No.' The shaft wat repairing, and it wat expected tbat the work would be completed by next day (Tuesday). I re mained by the Umbria l-:80 io'jf3K* J o'clock p.m. Shortly after leaving her I passed a Cunard steamabip from Boston bound eaat. She would pass directly hy the point where I taw her titter thip. I should think she ought to be bare some time tomorrow, if all goes well and repairs were completed at ex pected."

LEO WILL NOT RETREAT. The Pope Is Firm in His American Policy. Opposition to Monsignor Satolli Displeases Him. A Farther Demonstration of His Democratic Tendencies. He Addresses an Encyclical to the Italian People In the Popular Tongue—The Monarchic Era Is Patt. By the Associated Press.) Rome, Dec. 30.—Ihe holy father is greatly incensed at tbe opposition dis played against Monsignor Satolli and the peaceful and moderate solution of the school question in the United States. Speaking recently to one of his confi dants, the pope is reported tr have said: ! "They (Satolli's opponents) want to I force the holy see to retreat, but the j pope will not be repulsed." In a document which is jacw t- Ang I prepared at the Vatican, the wrudence and wisdom which Monsignor Satolli displayed in bis proposition for the solu tion of tbe school question are spoken of with praise. The fact that the holy see hag ad d reesed an encyclical to the Italian peo ple in the popular tongue, has caused much more comment than the document itself. It is tbe first time the pope, de parting from ancient usages, has ad dressed himself directly to the peo ple. This step is regarded by close observers as fresh testimony of the more and more pronounced democratic mode n and social character of tbe change in the pontifical policy which Leo XIII has brought about, and also as a manifestation of the revolutionary changes which are operating in the cen tral government of Catholicism. An in fluential cardinal, recently speaking on this subject, remarked: "The monarch ic era of the administration of ecclesi astical affairs is passing away and is be ing succeeded by a popular and demo cratic era."
