A MOST MOURNfll CERLM0NY BODY OF PONTIFF CONVEYED FROM THE THRONE ROOM TO ST. PETER'S. NOT THE LEAST SIGN Of CANCtR DR. LAPPONI REPORTS ON THE AUTOPSY HELD ON THE BODY. Rome, July 24. The body of Leo XIII. now lies in state in the basilica of St. Peter's. Beginning to-day at sunrise the people of Rome and those of all nations now in the Eternal City were admitted to pay their last fare well. Opportunity for this solemn tribute will end Saturday. Until 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon the remains of the dead pope lay In the throne room of the Vatican, where the leaders of the diplomatic, clerical and civil world were allowed to pass the bier. The ceremonial last night, when the body was conveyed from the throne room to St. Peter's was one of the most striking of all the obsequies. At 8 o'clock the mournful procession gathered around the bier, which was gently lifted by the sediari, who in the Iiftime of Leo XIII. had carried him in the sedia gestatoria. The dead pontiff was Clad in All the Pomp of his holy office. Leading the pro cession as it passed out of the throne room came the grooms carrying light ed torches. Behind the bier came the three nephews of the late pope. Mgr. Thomas Kennedy, rector of the Amer ican college, represented the United States in the procession. At the Hall of Palafraniers the cortege came to a standstill. There the cardinals, who had been waiting in the hall of the consistory, took their places immedi ately behind the nephews. Once more the procession, with the bier now flanked by the Swiss guards, moved on. After the cardinals came the whole diplomatic body accredited to the Vatican and the representatives of the Knights of Malta. No monarch was ever followed to the tomb by a More Imposing Array. Led by the cardinals, the prelates and clergy recited prayers and psalms for the diead as they slowly entered the Sistine chapel, where the chapter and clergy of St. Peter's awaited the pro cession. The latter formally received and took possession of the body. The final stage of bearing "'the prisoner of the Vatican" to his resting place then commenced. From the Sistine chapel the procession wound out around the loggia immortalized by Raphael, en circled the court of San Damaso and descended the private staircase, still chanting, into the bastilica. The in tense silence which prevailed was broken only by the chanting, which echoed and re-echoed from the huge dome and deserted aisles of the chap els as The Body Was Borne down the nave to the Chapel of the Sacrament. There candles burned brightly. In this crapelle ardente the body was reverently stretched behind the iron gates and two members of the noble guard took up positions on either side of the bier. Tne proces sion then reformed and returned to the Vatican! During the day the congregation of cardinals met and decided to hold the conclave under the identical regula tions which obtained at the conclave which elected Leo. Dr. Lapponi in the course of the day presented to Cardinal Oreglia a report of the autopsy which was held, which showed that there was no sign of cancer In the pope's body. CARE FOR MILITIAMEN.
