All the diplomats accredited to the . Vati can the Roman princes, dukes, barons, and other . representatives of ancient (families remaining faithful to the pa pacy, all the high dignitaries of the church, the arcWbishops, bishops, pa triarchs and heads of the religious or ders, passed to' solemn procession be fore the bier of the late pontiff. The papal throne had been removed and in its place, under the famous red silken canopy, on a small bed lay the body of 'Leo XIII. Over the bed was thrown a re& damask covering, on which the ibody , reposed, robed in white vest .ments with the red rochet and ca mauro hood and on the,-feet slippers embroidered with gold. The thin hands, clasped over the chest, held tightly a small ivory crucifix. Around this, was entwined a rosary of mother-of-pearl get in gold. On the third finger of the right hand the huge emerald pontifical ring sparkled. , ' . 'In striking contrast with the ghastly face was the purple hood, drawn down over the head, almost to the eyebrows and over the ears. The sunken cheeks and Jaws brought the nose and chin nearly together on the mouth, 'which was reduced almost to nothing, though no signs of agony were visible. It was the corpse of .a man who night have been dead fifty years. " ;ijn either side, near the shoulders, tood a number of tne noble guard, erect and motionless, only a faint quiv er of the drawn swords giving any in dication that they were not mere , sta tues. ' The ordeal of the soldiers, in the heated chamber, is so Intense that hey have to be constantly relieved. At the four corners of the bed stood tighted candles, ten feet 'high. On the aright, of the body, close to the bed, s a sm all table covered with a' white linen cloth, on which Were' two candles, throwing a glimmer of light on- the crucifix between them. At the foot of the cross was a crystal bowl, ailed- with 'holy water, from whTch each cardinal, : whenever he passed the body, sprinkled it and uttered a benediction. Vsed by Fop6 Leo in Ms lifetime, y The silence was only broken by the solemn chanting of six - Franciscan penitentiaries who, kneeling or stand ing at, a bench at the foot of the bier, 'continued their incessant supplication. ' To the left and right, on the walls, two srreat eold and marble brackets uppOrted many-branched candelabra, but they were not lighted nor were the lamps on the marble columns at. each' -corner of the throne room. .

Otherwise it was an almost simple , cursiits iui lxic ucaiu xi ic jl a - pope. There "was.no carpet on the marble floor, and not a flower to be seen, according- to the' strict ritual of the last honors of the church to a pontiff. As each lay or clerical dignitary' en tered the throne room he advanced slowly to the side of the bed, took one last look at the body and then with drew. Some persons knelt in momen tary prayer and crossed themselves. It was the last tribute of devotion and af fection, rather than of more outward fcomage to the head of he great church. v - .Outside the throne room the long corridors of the Vatican presented a brilliant spectacle. At the entrance of the. court of St Damaso pontifical gendarmes were drawn up and ren dered military honors as each carriage drove In. The diplomats wore full uni form and the princes and others were dressed in deep black. From the St Damaso court they passed up the mar ble stairway into the Clementino hall, where the Swiss guard was ranged in .double columns on either side. Next they entered the hall of Palafremieri where twenty-five grooms in red livery led the way to the hall of the Swiss, where a company of gendarmes, wear ing heavy black chapeaus, skin-tight white trousers and high cavalry boots, etood on guard at the threshold of the ente-chamber, containing a platoon of the Palatine guard. Further along they passed through the hall of tapes try and the chapel of the pope. The tioble guard, in full scarlet uniforms, glittering brass helmets and silver 'sashes, the latter covered with crape, kept the last watch at the door of the ftpartment of their dead master. -Outside the Vatican an interested crowd,- including a number of Italian -soldiers, watched the coming and going f the privileged mourners. ' tn the1 meanwhile the congregation of cardinals met in the hall of the con sistory, under the presidency of Car dinal Oreglla, It was determined to arrange for the accommodation of the conclave in exactly the same manner eswhen Pope Leo was elected. Mgr. Merry Del Val to-day took up the duties of secretary of the, consistory. cer or nephritis. . The text of the report follows: ' ' "Rome, July 22, 1903.

WILL ARRIVE SATURDA1. Trolley Company Which Pays Its Help C. 2SMs Cents an Hour. y The strikers' executive committee is sued their 193d daily statement this af ternoon, as follows: "It will be of , local interest to hear what the Rev Joel T. Tucker, pastor of the Richmond, Va East End Baptist church had to; say in a recent sermon in which he took occasion, to refer to the trolley strike down there. He said: T believe when employes of great cor porations learn that they are not get ting their . proper wages and that the corporation is making great money out of them they are justified in asking for more money. And I want to say here in regard to street car men, if there Is one of them getting rich, I don't know it. If there is one buying a house I don't know it."'' Yet I ; chal lenge any man to bring to me a class of men that has served the city better than our street car men. Many of them are sons of our very best citizens. When beefsteak gets to be 18 cents a pound and a' chicken such as a good hearty man could eat two or three, of, sells for 25 and 28 cents apiece, and their homes and doctor's bills to pay and many other difficulties in life, ne cessity, at times drives a - man to do what he does not want to do. I be lieve that the one .great sentiment of (tbe city ought to be to-day to say to those in. authority that this question should be submitted to arbitration.' "It will also be of local interest to know what the Detroit Trolley Co has agreed to do with its employes in an agreement dated July 3d. The com pany agrees to employ only members of our union. Nine hours constitutes a day's work. AH conductors and motormen, to receive 23 cents an hour, and no single trip to be consider ed less than one hour. We did not ask for nearly so much here In Waterbury. Why should we not be compensated as well here as like workers are Jn De troit? An agreement just entered into by the Scranton, Pa, company and its men gives the men an increase of forty per cent in wages and shorter hours. 'Boss' Farley was in Scranton trying to 'bust' things there, but he utterly fail ed, judging from the above informa tion. "About 2:45 yesterday afternoon Deserter Miles Booth added another accident to the growing list, on East Main street, near Orange street. An elderly lady; Who-was alighting, was thrown a 'twister' by the premature ringing of th bell to start. No note, of course, was taken of the accident and the empty car sped on. We under stand Bacth has already received one call from Superintendent Wales for a similar accident He ought to have heard the one he got from the passen ger he upset yesterday."
