that he Is beginning to fear that if he
wishes to retain his seat as pencil
pusher for the democratic machine he
must "get busy." He was up In Du
buque Friday and the following tel
egram from that city tells of the se
cret meeting he held there with other
members of the faithful:
Dubuque, Aug. 8.—(Special)—C. A.
Walsh of Ottumwa, by appointment,
met a number of prominent Dubuque
democrats at Julien.
Among those present were John El
wanger, John Mulgrow and Alphonso
Matthews. One of these gentlemen
says they talked over matters relat
ing to the coming campaign in Iowa.
This ma ybe trtie, but it is under
stood that Mr. Walsh made it plain
to the gentlemen present that there
was a determined effort to have him
ousted from the secretaryship of the
national democratic committee, and he
urged them to do all they could for him
in the way of preventing his retire
ment.
One of the Dubuquers is reported as
saying that it would have a very ba«
effect on the democratic party in Iowa
if Mr. Walsh were shelved.
Those who attended the conference
are close-mouthed, and there are some
democrats whe believe that Mr. Walsh
was not as solicitous about the "demo
cratic party of Iowa" as he was about
retaining, his position as secretary of
the national committee, a position
which gives him some prestige.
Some of those whom Mr. Walsh in
vited to attend the conference failed to
put in an appearance, and are now giv
ing various excuses for not being able
to be present.

throne Stood Prince Orsini, the assist
ant to the papal throne, who withdrew
his recent resignation of the post In
order to participate at the ceremonies.
Smile Illumines Pope's Pace.
The procession then proceeded, the
pope's face meanwhile illuminated by
a smile. At the chapel of the sacra
ment there was another halt and His
Holiness left the se'dla gestatoria and
prayed at the altar. On re-entering the
chair he was carried to the chapel of St.
Gregory, where he officiated at a mass
being assisted by several cardinals.
Then all the cardinals donned their
silver capes and white mitres and the
pope was borne to the throne amid re
hewed acclamations and waving of
handkerchief, fans and hats. The
scene around the throne formed a
great picture to which no pen could do
justice. The central figure was the
venerable pontiff seated on the throne.
Two lines of cardinals clad in silver
and scarlet reached to the high altar
with its burden of burning candles and
sacred vessels while around stood pa
pal guards, the pontificial court, monks
and officials.
The cathedral was illuminated with
twinkling lights, while the marble col
umns and wall rendered the color
scheme more vivid. Overhead was the
most magnificent dome in the world,
up to which floated the harmony of mu
sic.
Audience is Enthusiastic.
From the throne, Pius X, surround-
the pope the pontifical pallium and at

Pope Kissed on Cheeks and Chest.

pomp and ceremony, the voice of the
pope becoming gradually more firm!,n®
Plaintiff prays that the court ascertain and sonorous until it was even audible' mulct law, was completed this morn
and determine the amount now due on jn the most distant corners of the im-
wHich thejmense church. Following this, Cardi-
Inrjl Macchi performed the
rite of incensing the pope,
whom he subsequently kissed
three times on the cheeks and chest,
as did Cardinals Zenga and Vannut
telli. When the pope,returned to the
throne the cardinals made their last
obedience to the pontiff, kissing his
hands and feet, and being embrace^
twice by him in turn. The bishops and
archbishops kissed his foot and right
knee, while the abbots kissed only his
foot. The Holy Father then walked to
the shrine of St. Peter for the culmi
nating rites of the extremely fatiguing
ceremony. Cardinal Macchi recited the
"Pater Noster," and offered the follow
ing pfljiyer:
"OmirfH^ent and ever eternal God,
dignitary of the clergy and author of
sovereignty, grant Thy servant, Pius
X, grace to faithfully govern Thy
church, so that he, who by thy clem
ency, becomes and is crowned as fath
er of kings and rector of all th.e faith
ful, through Thy wise disposition may
govern well."
"Amen" rang out from all corners of
the cathedral, from the choir, the peo
pie, the clergy and all those present,
the pontiff's mitre was then raised and
Cardinal Macchi placed on the venera
ble white head the triple crown. At
this moment the church was filled
with the ringing of silver, bells, the
blowing of trumpets, the strains of the
choir, and the acclamation of the mul
titude, which could no longer, be re
pressed,

For friendship blends the banners of
