REMARKABLE RALLY OfPOPE ARISES FROM HIS BED AND RE- CEIVES FOUR CARDINALS STANDING. TRANSACTS PRIVATE BUSINESS HOWEVER, ACCORDING TO DOC- TORS, PONTIFF MAY DIE AT ANY MOMENT. STEADILY LOSING HIS STRENCTH RALLY CAME AFTER PONTIFF HAD SUFFERED SPELLS OF DELIRIUM. Rome, July 16, 6:50 a. m. While the pope passed a-fairly quiet night he had some moments of delirium. The rumor of the pontiff's death was twice circulated during the night, but was promptly denied. The depression of his vital forces continues. Rome, July 16, 1:20 a. m.Another remarkable rally in Pope Leo's con dition occurred yesterday afternoon after a morning in the course of which his holiness suffered spells of delirium and at times his strength sank to the lowest ebb, and now he lies in no worse condition than he was on Mon day evening, except for the steady aiminution of his strength. Mgr. Bis leti, master of the chamber, visited the sick room just after midnight, and on emerging stated that the pontiff's condition was unchanged. A Little later the pope fell into a sleep which it has just been announced Is fairly tranquil, although the patient's respir ation is troublesome. Yesterday's rally was character istically opposed to every medical theory and consisted In Getting Out of Bed, on which two hours previously the pope himself had made all prepara tions for death. Unsatisfied with this exhibition of vitality, he transacted private business and received four cardinals, with whom he talked in an animated way. In fact, Pope Leo's record for yesterday, little of which appeared in last night's official bulle tin, would be incredible if it were not confirmed by the doctors and cardinals present in the sick chamber. None seem more perplexed than the doctors themselves. Dr. Lapponi said frankly: "I cannot imagin how the pope manages to keep alive." According to the physicians, the pontiff may die at any moment, even in the middle of one of those extra ordinary intervals when his mind and body present a Sound Appearance. All those around the patient have long since ceased to hold definite opinions regarding the duration of the pontiff's existence. The slow but pro gressive dimunition of the strength of the august patient foTtells^ the ap proaching end of the struggle with death, but the doctors will not ven ture to predict how near the end is. Constant relapses, they say, such, as created alarm early yesterday, are gradually wearing down the pope's constitution which seems immune from any specific disease. As day succeeds day it becomes pathological ly clearer that it is a case of a very old man dying because he has lived his allotted time. The pope himself yesterday after noon ordered the four cardinals to be admitted and Received Them Standing. He, who is supposed to be at the point of death, sayin: "Please be seated." He recounted the impressive cere mony of the morning when he re ceived the benediction of the Fran cescan order. The cardinals informed him of the world-wide prayers for his life. Pope Leo. answered that he was much gratified, but that he was ready for his final departure, concluding by saying: "God's will be 'done." Even more striking was the pope's interview with his secretary, Mgr. Angeli. His holiness sent for him, saying that he wished to see certain papers, which the secretary brought. Then after a short explanation Mgr. Angeli wished to get the pope's de cision on the matter, but Pope Leo said: "Well, well, not to-day. We will do that some other time." Col. Cressey's New Job.

MAY SUCCEED SECRETARY ROOT. Gen. Oliver May Step Into His Shoes When He Retires. Washington, July 16. It seems to he a general understanding among of ficials of the war department who ought to know that the name of Rob ert Shaw Oliver, who has just been appointed assistant secretary of war, will be favorably considered for secre tary of war when Secretary Root re tires from the cabinet. It has been known for some time that on the com pletion of certain important matters which Secretary Root has in hand he Intends to return to New York to re sume the practice of law. Just when this might happen is and has been very indefinite. Secretary Root sails for England the last of the month to take his place as chairman of the American commission on the Alaskan boundary commission.

HAS JEW reimo MUCH DISCUSSED DOCUMENT IS HANDED TO PRESIDENT AT OYSTER BAY. MA NO E SENT O RUSSIA GIVE THE CZAR A CHANCE TO SAY WHETHER OR NOT HE WOULD RECEIVE IT. SHOWS CONFIDENCE I N TH E CZAR ASKED TO APPOINT ARBITRA- TORS TO PASS ON VEN- EZUELAN QUESTION. Oyster Bay, L. I., July 16.An im portant conference was held at Saga more Hill yesterday between the pres ident and representative Jewish citi zens from the Society of B'nai B'rith regarding the petition to the Russian government on the Kishinef outrages. The result of the conference has not been disclosed yet, but a strong Inti mation is given that the petition may not be forwarded to the Russian gov ernment. The desire of both the pres ident and Secretary Hay is that the Kishinef Incident should be closed as soon as possible, as further delay in its consideration might prove embar rassing to this government in other diplomatic negotiations with Russia. Inasmuch as the Russian govern ment has indicated by the adoption of Severe Measures a genuine disposition to punish ade quately the perpetrators of the Kish inef murders, and in addition, those who instigated them, it is a problem for the president and Secretary Hay to solve whether representations con cerning the incident now are desira ble. It is suggested that the whole mat ter may be resolved into a brief state ment through diplomatic channels to the Russian foreign office, that such a petition is in the hands of the United States, thus leaving It to Russia to say whether it would or would not receive the document If it were presented. This would close the incident without subjecting the United States' relations with Russia to a strain and would be quite as effective as the actual pre sentation of the petition. UP TO THE CZAR. Secretary Hay Invites Him to Name Venezuelan Commissioners. Washington, July 16. Secretary Hay has invited the czar of Russia to name and ap /Oint from the members of the permanent court of The Hague three arbitrators to constitute the tri bunal which is to determine and set tle the questions submitted to it under the Venezuelan claims treaty. Confidence in Czar. In asking the czar to name the arbi trators this government has the ut most confidence that the Russian sov ereign will not allow his judgment to be biased by the Kishinef petition in cident and the allegation of Russian unfriendliness toward the United States in the Manchurian negotiations which was contained in the official statement of July 1, understood to have been prepared at Oyster Bay. A somewhat hopeful feeling pre vails here that the czar, in responding to the request of the United States to name The Hague arbitrators, may find occasion to bring up the Kishinef mat ter and through friendly interchange secure an understanding that will ob viate the necessity of any attempt by the United States to place the Kish inef petition before the Russian gov ernment. This would restore the rela tions of the two nations to their form er states of cordiality. It has been surmised also that the czar might find ThTTHague~matter the occasion of making an entirely satis factory communication to the United States in regard to the Manchurian "open door" negotiations.
