WEEPING PRELATES THRONG THE VATICAN All Night Long the Death Vigil Was Maintained, and the Dawn Wore Calmly on While the Light of Life Flickered Lower and Death's Shadow Descended. By REV. DR. P. O'KELLY. (Spet?al Cable to The Tlmes-Dlspatch, Copyright, 1?03.) ROME, July 20.?The Pope died this evening at four min? utes after the great St. Damascus hell tolled ?l, Soon thereafter I traversed the marble halls of the Vatican, thronged with weeping cardinals and prelates. Through the ante-chambers, past the throne room with its vacant golden chair, into the room where the green silken curtains half concealed the little bed upon which his Holiness died, I ad? vanced through the throng of silent, prayerful attendants and knelt by the bed where the cloth? ing still lies disordered. My lips pressed the Pontiff's right hand, which was still warm and flex? ible. A glance showed Leo resting peacefully, his head upraised by two pillows and bound with a white cloth. The lower jaw was slightly fallen. The whole ex? pression of the face, was serene. Death had smoothed away the myriad of wrinkles thc years had created. The mouth wears the faint, ineffable smile I have seen so often when- it answered the cheers of. the vast crowd in St, Peter's or beamed upon the bow? ed head of a visitor. His Holiness carried thc fath? erly smile to death and beyond. From Friday morning four nights ago, until yesterday when the lethargy of death first over? powered his intellect, the Pontiff performed the work still left him calmly, not hastily, as if he had a century to live. Yesterday morning 1he end was obviously near, conscious? ness was lost for hours, his con? fessor, Father Pifferi, knelt at the bedside until dusk. Every mo? ment seemed thc last to all but Lapponi, who, finger on pulse, remained at the bedside. At last the wearied Pifferi retired and Cardinal Vives y Tuto, robed in the brown habit of the Capu? chins, took Pifferi's place and be? gan to read the prayers of the dying. Hand Raised in Blessing. Prayers and ritual ended, the Cardinal withdrew from his gir? dle the precious relic of the Saint especially dear to Leo, for Saint Rita was the last he canonized in St. Peter's. With the relic the Cardinal touched Leo's lips, "Your blessing, Holy Father," the Cardinal whispered, ? smile (Continued on Third Base.) CONSTITUTION IS?

These five com? ponies are distributed among the various points where disorders r?an*e recently oc? curred, one ln Fulton, one at the Clay Street car sheds, another at the Reser? voir, anolher at the armory.

In addition to this applications wer* received yesterday from. twelve or fif? teen of the old men, and there aro re? ports that others -will apply for their old, positions. The company Is turning down Inexperienced men now, ?iaving as many learners as they destro for tho present. Two young men from Manchester, well endorsed were told yesterday that they, could not be offered positions at this time. As soon as the inexperienced men now loarnlng the duties of motormen and con? ductors have become familiar with tha work, others may bo taken on. Many of the men now applying are experienced' men. As soon a3 these men are taken on', they am directed to report to the va? rious line superintendents, by them to bej assigned to work. Small Accidents. While there wero several accidents yes? terday, all were of minor Importance, nnd the Injuries sustained slight, No new Unes were opened.

Patronage on the various lines Is picking up steadily, and on som*? Unes ls approximating the normal, nota? bly on the Main Street line. That ither? aro still many who consistently refrain. from riding is beyond denial, but aside from member?? of organizations whlchl Impose a pen-illy the number is gradually shrinking. Warm weather and lone walks have combined to overcome scru? ples In many cases. No disorder waa reported from nny point yesterday or last night, and normal quiet prevails ln all sections of itlin city, Strike is Not Off, The men vohemently declare that the? are not thinking of yielding the strung glu.

Two of the men, It Is eatd? will servo notice on tho union that they ??????? to withdraw from thn organization ami return to work. They do not wish t4 act in bad faith and propose to give toxt mal notice of their Intention to resum* their old positions. Just what the effect of this action will be cannot be foretold?. There are many who predict that th< collapse of the strike Is only a mattet of a few days, but the officer? of the or? Kiinl-atlon and the organizer strenuoml? deny this, It Is admitted that a numbei of the strikers have left the city, but thll action ls not construed aa an abandon? mont of the strike on their part. Thar* are now comparatively few ?jositlOTi? to bi f.'lled to make up the full complement 01 men required to operate the cire on th< old schedule, and the numN-r Is daily de? creasing.
