Rome, Aug. 5.—Cardinal Sarto. patrf- Advanced una exclaimed in arch of Venire, was elected pope on the seventh ballot. Just before noon Cardinal Maechi, •ccretary of apostolic briefs, an nounced to the crowd assembled before St. Peter's that Cardinal Sarto had been elected pope and that he had taken the name of Pius X. At 12:10 Pope Pius X. appeared in Side the balcony of the basilica and, Messed the populace amul acclama tions of the enormous crowd assem bled upon the piazza. The announcement of Cardinal Sar to's election was received with wild enthusiasm on the part of thousands! preceded by the cross. POPE PIUS X. of persons who had gathered outside St. Peter's. The scene within the basilica when the pope pronounced his benediction was one of unparalleled excitement and enthusiasm. Thou sands of persons within the cathedral cried and waved their hats. Dons the Robes of His Office. While Prince Chigi, the master of the conclave, was drawing up the offi cial act of the election and acceptance of the nervly elected pope the latter, surrounded by his friends, disappeared Into a small room near the altar where be donned the white robes of his office. Pius X. was assisted by his conclavist, who first knelt and kissed his master's hand and thus received the first apos tolic blessing given by Pius X. When he was quite robed the secretary of the conclave, Mgr. Merry del Val, kneel ing, offered him the papal white cap. amidst breathless silence. He did not follow the precedent created by Pope Leo, who declined to give his red cap to the master of ceremonies as a sign that he would soon be created a car dinal, but with a slight smile Sarto took the white cap, placed it calmly on his head and dropped the red one lightly on the head of Mgr. Merry del ,Val amidst a murmur of approval. This is taken as a certain indication that the happy recipient is soon to be raised to the cardinalate. Cardinals Salute New Pope. As the new pontiff stepped from be hind the altar, the only touch of color abouttt him being his read and gold shoes, he really seemed to be the em bodiment of his holy office. His face was pale and clear, softened by emo tion. lie paused a moment as he came before the expectant cardinals, then seated himself on the throne with a hurried movement, as though he had suddenly grown weak, llis back was All kissed his hand and foot, while he saluted each on the cheek with the kiss of peace. Then all broke into the "Te Deutn" with such effect that Scarcely an eye was dry. Pius X. then rose and in a voice, at first tremulous, but gradually becom ing full and firm, administered the papal blessing to all of the members, of the sacred college. It was received with bowed and uncovered heads. The Fisherman's ring not yet hav ing been found, a new one, designed by Oamerlengo Oreglia. was placed on the pontiff's finger as a symbol of re newed power and evidence that the Catholic church once more has a sov ereign head. Sarto bore himself with becoming dignity and gave no outward sign of exultation in this, the supreme mo ment of his life. News Given to Assembled Crowd. In the meanwhile masons and car penters had been busy breaking down doors so that the cardinal deacons, to gether with the master of ceremonies and the conclavists and many others, inight proceed to the balcony of St. Peter's. The populace, waiting in the piazza, had already, at 11:30 o'clock, seen the tiny thread of smoke, almost transparent, which warned them what to expect, so that when the windows on the balcony slowly opened and the great gleaming cross was seen the ex citement aad impatience to the extreme. beigntsnea '«ua voice: "I announce to you with great pleas ure that we have elected as pope the Most Eminent Rev. Cardinal Joseph .Sarto. who has taken the name of Pius X." Then the bells of St. Peter's boomed out. as did those of all the churches of Rome, giving the glad news to the world. As Cardinal Maechi returned to the gisUne ch afler hav performed his plous duly the new lJOpe rose and an effort to make some kind of pro cession was made, but Pius X. was literally carried in triumph to his cell, followed by a great concourse and New Pope Appears on Piazza. After a short rest, imposed by the fatigue and emotion of his election, Pius X. joined his court in the Ducal hall for the solemn benediction which he was about to give to the people of Rome. The formal salutations having terminated a procession was formed. In the center was the pontiff in his white robes, his figure standing out above those surrounding him, his sil ver hair gleaming under his white cap. He was surrounded by the cardinals, still in their violet robes, and preceded by the pontifical cross, the jewels of which flashed as though they also tri umphed in Sarto's success, while the conclavists and prelates seemed really jubilant in their joy and satisfaction. The procession traversed many no ble halls until it approached the win dow looking into St. Peter's. From below rose voices which, although sub dued by distance, denoted the pres ence of a large concourse of people. Standing forward in the window, the others having fallen back, Sarto raised his hand and, in a voice plainly trem ulous, he said, as soon as the cries from below gave an opportunity: Blesses the Assembled Crowd. "We speak in the name of the Mas ter." To this came in reply from thou sands of voices the cry: "Who made Heaven and earth." In a thrilling voice the pope re sponded "May the name of the Master be blessed." Then, raising himself to his full height and leaning forward as much as possible, he intoned: "May the Omnipotent God bless you, etc.," which called forth such applause that several minutes elapsed before the pontiff could retire. He then drew back and the procession reformed and returned to the Ducal hall. In response to the expressed desire of Pope Pius X. the conclave remained In session until 7:35 p. m., when it dissolved and the cardinals returned to their various apartments in Rome. WILL FOLLOW LEO'S POLICY. Election of Sarto Favorably Received in France. Paris, Aug. 5.—The election of Car dinal Sarto as pope has created a dis tlnctly favorable impression in gov ernment quarters here, removing the fear that the choice might fall upon a radical or a reactionary candidate. Although not espousing any particu lar candidate official feeling has been favorable to one who would continue the conservative policy of the late pope. Cardinal Rampolla at first seemed to be the best exponent of a continuance of the former policy, but he lacked the necessary strength Cardinals Sarto and I)t Pletro were regarded as being closely identified to the altar and he was enthroned to with Rampolla and as likely to share serve the so-called "first obedience" of hiR general views.

Sarto's Aversion to Politics Consid ered Auspicious. Berlin, Aug. 5.—The election of Car dinal Sarto as the new pope was made Inown here at 1 p. m. through extra editions of the newspapers, which were eagerly read. Replying to the question whether the election was ac ceptable to Germany a representative of the foreign office answered: "Unqualifiedly so from an official view point. Sarto is a mild mannered man and has never been active polit ically." In other quarters it was remarked that Sarto is the only Italian cardinal whom the king of Italy received. His repeated visits to the king and his aversion to politics are regarded as an auspicious sign for the triple alliance. Germany is also fully satisfied that Sarto does not aspire to the restora tion of the temporal power of the papacy. FROM SAME PLATFORM. Cleveland and Hanna to Discuss Labor Problem.
