The resignation of Charles M. Schwab as president of the United States Steel Corporation xxas tendered and accepted nt a meet ing of the directors yesterday. Will iam 11. Corey xxas unanimously elect ed his successor. Mr. Schxxab's resignation caused no surpilse in financial elides, xxhere it had for some time been foreshadow ed. The new piesident xxns for jears one of Audi exx Carnegie's ablest lieu tenants and is now piesident ot the Caincgie Steel Co., one of the sub siding concci ns of the United States Steel Corporation. It is scarcely inoie fhiin a month ago Hint Mr. Co icy xxns made assistant to the piesident (Mr. Schwab) because of the latter's continued ill health. Mr. Schwab attended Tucsdnj's meeting of the diicctorc, coming to toxxn, it xxas said, for that especial pin pose. He appeared to be in good health and spiiils and seemed lather glad to be rcliexcd of the duties Im posed on the chief exeeutixe of the "billion dollar corporation." Uefoie and after the meeting Mr. Schxxab confcried with J. P. Morgan. Immediately after the election of his successor Mr. Schxxab met the pi ess repiesentatixes, to whom he made this informal statement: "I want to saj that 1 think 1 haxe hern tientcd vetj' unfairly bj- the nexxspapers in regaid to the reasons for inj' retirement. A number of reason1-. including this American shipbuilding matter, liaxe been gixen for it, but none of them is true. As a matter of tact the shiplhiildiug question has nexcr been n subject of discussion betxxeen injself and the diiectois. "On my return fiom Europe six months ago I tried to get Mr. Mor gan and the dhectors to accept my resignation, but xxas unable to do so. That docs not look as if 1 had been foiccd out. Later I appealed to Mr. Friek and through him haxe finally succeeded in inducing the directors to accept my resignation. I am as deep Ij interested in the United States Steel Corporation as exer. 1 am still the largest stockholder and remain as diiector and member of the exeeu tixe committee. Mj retirement is on nceount of ill health nervousness. I haxe been in bad health for six months or more." J. P. Morgan, departing from his nsunl custom, made a statement as folloxxs after the meeting of the steel board: "I deeplj' regret that the condition of Mr. Schwab's health renders it im possible for him to continue at the head of the steel corporation. His loxaltv to the interests inti listed to him cannot be doubted, and fiom the enrlj dajs of the inception of the corporation he gaxe to its formation, unification and development his un equalled poxxers as an expeit in the manufacture of steel. "I consider that in Mr. Corey the directors haxe seemed an ciuinciitlj competent successor to Mr. Schxxab and 1 am confident that the futuie xxill prove this to be the case. Jn fact 1 think that todaj- the steel com pan j' in all its branches is intrm sicullj' in a stronger and better posi tion than it has exer been." The nexx piesident has entered upon his duties and with his election the steel corporation has iiitiiigtu.it ed a nev policj'. There will be less centralization of power and increased responsibility in the work pf the vari ous committees. DEMAND MORE PAY.

Cardinal Sarto Elected on tho Seventh Ballot. Tho Now I'ontUr In (18 Yearn of Ago mid I Very l'upiilur In Vculco Whoro Ho wan IHnllop Ho Abmiiiich tlio Title of riim X. Home, Aug. 5. The conclave after lielng in session for four days yes terday elected (itilseppo Sarto, p.t trliuch of Venice, as pope to succeed Leo XIII and he now reigns at the Vatican and over the Catholic world ns Plus X. Ills election and the assumption of his holy office were marked bj- a striking demonstration and impres sive eetcinonics at the Vntienn. 'Cardinal Clluseppe Sarto was born nt Iticsc, province of Venice, June 2, 1&35. lie was verj' learned in the ec clesiastical doctrines, is modest, en ergetic, a good administrator and or ganizer, a patron of the arts and his seriousness always has been proxei binl. Cardinal Sarto belonged to the ec clesiastical congregations of bishops and legulurs, sacred lites, indul gences and saered idles. He enjoj' cd great popularity in his diocese. He is honoied bj- nil for his pitilty, for the stiiet uprightness of his life and for liberal ideas. He is a modest and agreeable man, highly cultivated, vcrj- kind hearted and still strong and robust in spite of his OS years, lie has never taken great part in tlio jiolitical and public lift- of the church, but divided Ida time in studj- and good works. Although most faithful to the Holv See he was presented to the king and queen of Italj- in Venice. He was considered among the more liberal members of the Italian episcopate and sncied college. It is said that Leo Xlll sided xxitli him on one occa sion xx lien Sarto disapptoxed of Itiini polla's policj'. Pius X xxas onlj 23 when he was consecrated a priest at Castel France, acting afterwards for nine jears as coadjutor to the parish priest of Tombolo, piovinee of Pndua, a small village of 2,950 people, who were the first to appreciate his virtues. His kindness was untiring. He sought to fill their wants and never a murmur was heard when he was called in the middle of a winter night to a death-' bed which proxed to be nothing of the kind. lie gaxe freelj of his verj-i small means until he often went without meals himself, but he kept mnnj- a poor fnmilj vf rom starvation. In 1S75 he was elected chancellor of the bishopiic of Trex-iso, then spir itual director of that scmlniiiy, judge of the eelesinstical tribunal and filial ly vicar general. Pope Leo, who had liighlj nppie ciatctl his cleverness, pietj and mod esty, appointed him in Xov ember, 1SS4, nt Hie age of -10 years, bishop of Mantun. wliete be remained nine, jears, until lsil.l, when he was made a cardinal and appointed patriarch of Venice. He there distinguished himself ns a thorough reformer, sup pressing all abuses, rcstoiing the dignitj of the elergj- and the earnest ness of religion. To him is due the rexixnl of a Gregorian chant in the beautiful churches overlooking the lagoons, and to him is due the stiiet return to liturgic l tiles. Sarto became the idol of the Vene tians. When his gondola went through the ennnis the people rushed on the bridges and along the sides of. the canals, kneeling and saluting, the women exclaiming "Hod bless the patriarch." He has xerj modest tastes, having retained almost the same habits as when he was a mere curate. The election of the patiiarch of Venice xxas unanimous. After Mon-daj-'s ballots it was a foregone con clusion that he was the onlj- candi date siifficlentry acceptable to all to secure the necessary two-thirds, which the laws the church require. One of the1 cardinals said .last night that he believed Pius X would folloxv the broad lines ot Leo's policj', al though not likely to accentuate it. This xoices Hie general feeling heie, which is one of. satisfaction. All the members of the saeied col lege decline that thej" arc verj- well satisfied with the election ol Cardinal Sarto, but the nnti-Hiimpolla party consider it as their special victorj'. The new pope is one of eight chil dren, two sons and six daughters. One of his sisters is a dressmaker, another is miuried to a saciistim and peddler, a Hiitd married a wine shnp keepeiMind the others are unmarried. Tlio nexx pope is the seventh who lian come from the region of Venice, among xvliom xx-as lleucdict XII, who, by a strange coincidence, xxas elected pope exactly 50!) years ago yesterday.
