IS READY
FOR DEATH
But Grim Reaper Does
Not Come
TO POPE LEO'S RELIEF.
The Doctors are Surprised at the Con
dition of the Aged Pontiff-'-Hay
Live Weeks.
Home, July IS. This morning' bulle
tin reads: "The holy father passed a
sleepless night, but since the first hours of
the morning he had a quiet repose. His
respiration is calm and not superficial, be
cause the level of the pleuric liquid has
sunk. His respiration is 2S. bis pulse is
weak at s8 and his temperature 33 2-10
centigrade. His general condition has
remained unchanged."
The honor due for the resumption of
the functions of the Pope's kidneys this
morning is given to Kniperor Francis Jo
seph of Austria, who sent a case of ten
bottles of mineral water which the doctors
administered with satisfactory results.
The Pope's rally continued during the
early afternoon. While the character of
the disease seals the patient's fate, it now
seems within the range of possibility that
the pontiff may live until the first of Sep
tember, 'The doctors refuse to prophesy
the length of his life.
It was stated today that the Pope has
granted to Cardinal Ranipolla, the privi
lege of uppointing a new secretary for the
conclave w hich will elect a new i'ope.
This is supposed to increase Rampnlla's
chances for election as pontiff, and has
consequently greatly agitated the other
candidates.

CARDINAL GOTTI'S CHANCES
Why A rch Motion paisley Think lie
Will He the- New Fooe.
Archbishop Quijrley of, Chicago b
Moves the next pope will be Cardinal
Gotti, according to a special dispatch, to
the New York Herald.
The archbishop believes that Cardi
nal Ranipolla is persona non grata to
the sacred college because of bis pro
French services during the expulsion
of the religious orders from France.
There is no doubt," said the arch
bishop, "that prance would be mightily
pleased to see Ranipolla elevated to the
papacy, but for that very reason it Is
not likely that be will secure the elec
tion. "Cardinal Ranipolla as secretary of
state has, of course, bad to deal with
many oVlieat state problems affecting
national policies of the great powers of
the continent, such ns Spain, France,
Germany and Italy. In that capacity
he has probably incurred the displeas
ure in some degree of one or two of
the powers.
"For the reason that France would
be most pleased at the elevation of
Ranipolla Germany and Austria would
be opposed to hiin. The emperor of
Germany is one of the shrewdest dip
lomats of the continent, and it is not
doubted that be would like to secure
the friendship of the Vatican to tho
extent, In fact, of securing permission
to Catholic missionaries in the Ottoman
empire and other eastern countries.
"It would be of great assistance to
the German government to have the
tipport of Koine in the protection of
the Catholic missionaries In the east.
In that event Germany could send sol
diers with her missionaries to protect
them and would secure diplomatic and
valuable footholds.
"Cardinal Gotti, one of the promi
nent and most likely candidates for the
papacy, would be very acceptable to
Germany. lie is a wonderfully equip
ped man for jhe place too. Gotti has
won bis way to the eminent position he
occupies by merited services. lie Is a
profound scholar, knows the world
well and is large in bis sympathies and
of a very kindly nature, lie would un
doubtedly evince n fine knowledge of
statecraft if elevated to the papacy
and would be especially pleasing to
Germany and Austria.
"Cardinal Gotti, however, might not
prove acceptable at first to the govern
ment nt Washington. lie Is n very re
ligious man and would naturally lean
to the side of the friars la the Philip
pines." Women pnd Wae.
It has often been explained that on
reason why men get higher wages than
women is that they do not give up theit
work hs soon as tliey have become ex
perts, as women usually do. In Ger
ms'.! j nine-tenths of all saleswomen
leave their occupation (usually to get
married! before they are twenty-six
years old.
(mm lit In Ilia Own Trap.
Having fixed a burglar trap to pro
tect his house while absent from home,
a Marseille!? policeman returned and,
forgetting the trap, was shot dead.
Keep Vonr Feet Dry.
Never sit in a damp shoe. Maybe
you think that unless your shoes are
positively wet a change is not neces
sary. This is a fallacy. The least
dampness in the sole in its evaporation
absorbs the beat from the foot. In a
few minutes the feet will be dump and
cold, and perspiration Is dangerously
checked.
(irewaoiue Charm.
People's fingers, cut from the hands
of the dead, are sometimes carried as
amulets by the ignorant and supersti
tious. Dried lizards sewed up la
leather serve the same purpose.
IS AFTER
BEAVERS.
Government Has Bench
Warrant For Arrest
ACCEPTED BRIBE OF $840
Beavers is Missing and Officials Can
not Locate His Where
abouts. New York, July IS. A bench warrant
was issued by Judge Thomas in the United
States Circuit Court in Brooklyn today for
the arrest of George W. Beavers, former
ly chief of the division of salaries and al
lowances in the postoitice department, on
an indictment found by the federal grand
jnry which charges him with accepting a
bribe of $40. It is understood that pay
ments to Beavers were traced back to the
purchase by the government of the
Iirandnt-Dent Cash Register Machine Co.
The postotlice inspectors found that Heav
ers had a large account in Nassau Trust
company. Brooklyn, and are said to have
discovered that cheeks deposited there
had been given by ex-Congressman D.
Riggs.
The warrant has not yet been served
and it was rumored that Mr. Rervers
could not be found. It was stated that he
would have until Monday to present him
self and that an arrangement had been
made with his attorneys to euter a plea
for him at that time.

Allowance
WAS A DRIFTING MATCH
For First Tea Miles With the Columbia

Was Fast.
Xew Ilaven, Conn., Julv 17. The Con
stitution won from the Reliance" on time
allowance in the first run of the New
York Yacht club cruise of 37 miles from
Glen Cove to this port today.
I he Keliance led the Belmont boat at
the finish by 60 seconds but she had to al
low her rival 17 seconds, which gives the
race to Constitution by one minute and IS
seconds.
The first ten miles of the race of the 00
footers from (ilen Cove was practically a
drifting match, ending in a light south
west wind, which increased in strength as
the boats came in sight of New Ilaven and
sent them over the finish line in a rush.
During a few minutes, about an hour
after the start, Columbia took the lead,
but could not hold it against Reliance.
Constitution was behind, but twenty
miles from the start both the newer boats
passed Columbia: Nearing the finish the
Constitution picked up a breeze which
sent her rapidly up on the Keliance, which
was leading, and as the Reliance crossed
the line the Constitution was but 200 or
300 yards astern. Columbia was a mile
in the rear.

LOST HIS LIFE
BY LIVE WIRE
Murray Durkee Was
Electrocuted.
BY VOLTAGE OF 15,000
Suda'cn Taking Off of Barre Young
Man, Lineman for Viles Co.,
Near Middlesex.
Murray Durkee, son of William 11. Dur
kee who resides at 5y Prospect street in
this city, wa almost instantly killed by
an electrio current of 1,000 voltage, while
at work as lineman for the Viles" Electric
Lighting company near Middlesex yester
day afternoon.
Theyonng man, who is only 20 years
old, was engaged in putting insulators on
the poles of the system between the power
plant at Middlesex and JUontpelier. Frank
Hill, another employee. ' was with him.
Voting Dnrkee was nearly at the top of a
twenty-foot pole. Just how the accident
happened is not known, but it is supposed
that he partially slipped and fell against
one of the wires w hich carry the current
from the plant,
The first that Mr. Hill knew of what
had befallen his companion was when he
heard the peculiar hissing sound which
accompanies the burning of flesh with elec
tricity. He looked up and saw smoke
coming from the left side of the young
man's neck. Almost at the same time
that Mr. Hill looked up the body fell from
the pole to the ground, a distanco of fully
20 feet.
Mr. Hill ran to the young man's assist
ance, and as soon as pnsssble word was
sent to the office of the company at Mont
pelier. Dr. F. M. McGnlre was summon
ed at once. When he arrived at the place
of thejaccideut about half past four o'clock,
Durkee was past all aid having died a
short time after receiving the terrific
charge of electricity.
After considerable delay on the part of
the town authorities in giving permission
for the removal of the body, an ambulance
was called from Johonnott & Halls at
Montpelier. The body reached that city
shortly before 8 o'clock, and was sent on
to this city later.
Young Durkee was well known in this
city and had a large number of friends.
He had been employed by the Viles' com
pany for about a year and a half as a
lineman. The blow falls most heavily
upon his father, one brother and his step
mother. Maurice, his brother, is employ
ed at Richmond.
The funeral will be held from the Cci
versalist church of this city Sunday after
noon at 2 o'clock, and it is expected that
Rev. J. Edward Wright of Montpelier
will otliciate.
