STRENGTH ON THE WANE 4v 1*' S rC, a" IThe Wonderful Vitality That Has Made the Aged Pontiff Such a Wonderful- •I ly Active Patient, Gives Way. to Drowsiness .Today. life Berlin, July 8.—A Rome dispatch Bays that Cardinal Vannuttelli, the grand penitentiary, has been called to administer absolution in articulo mortis to the Pope.^j^S^ London, July 8.—A Rome dis patch says the pope had another faiting fit tod&y, and the action of ibis heart is v«ry feeble. His con dition again is very critical. Paris, July 8.—A Rome dispatch eaye the weakness of the pope is increasing hour by hour. He is only intermittently conscious. His death is imminent. Rome, July 8/—The attendance on the pope this morning posted the following bulletin: "The night was passed tranquilly enough, although the pontiff had no test or sleep. The pulse is frequent }ng ut regular and the patient is breath as freely as last night. The con dition of the pop« does not permit of a long examination but it seems that the pleurlc liquid# is not gathering, however, the general condition of the patient is not tranqulllzlng because of the state of depression which at in tervals increases. As a consequence of the operation informed yesterday the cyanosiB of the last finger joints has disappeared, proving It was caused by violated circulation due to the pressure of pluera on the lungs." As can be seen by the morning bul letin the pope's condition today is not so favorable as last night. This is due to the fact that the Improvement after the operation of yesterday has not assumed the proportions the doc tore had wished. While the Inflamma tion of the lungs Is decreasing the pa tient's general condition does not im prove and there is a tendency towards radical change for the worse. '^Jy| Grows Very Weak The pontiff is extremely weak and even chloroform seems not to have the power to give the sufferer tranquil rest. Hard to Breathe.

This gave rise to all kinds of rumors but It was explained that Cardinal Rampolla had taken upon himself the duty of acting as mouthpiece for some intimate friends and relatives of the pope who suggested the advisability of calling certain other doctors in consultation. ty- Disease Well Defined. Dr. Mazzoni replied that he had not the least oujection to such a consulta tion but that the symptoms and the course of the disease were so clear and well defined as to leave no doubt as to the diagnosis. He therefore was unable to see the necessity of the step proposed. No decision has yet been reached In the matter. May Die During Night. Rome, July 8, 7:15 p. m.—As even In approaches the pope's condition grows alarmingly worse and there is serious fear that he will pass away during the night [Rome time is seven hours ahead of Ottumwa time.
