Rome. July 24. A solemn funeral mass for the repose of the soul of Pope Leo was celebrated to-day In the church of Saints Vincent and - ' Anastasius. The door of the church, which contains the visera of all the popes since Sixtus V except those of Pius IX, waa deco rated in black and gold and bore a long inscription in Latin. The interior of the church was hung with black and eold and on the high altar was a large golden cross and in the center stood" an eiaDorate cata fort 'hir a rrlole crown. ioiuv) . j X Tn frrvTi nf the catafalaue was the coat of arms of the late pontiff, with a pro fusion of flowers and many nags ot 1oHnl sniMeties.

A grand catafalque drapea in DiacK and gold was in the center of the chapel and on It a triple crown held a conspicuous position, which, with flick ering candles around the cataraique and clouds of incense, gave a note of mysticism o the chapel which was wanting in the exposition of the je mains of the popeon the other side of the church. The function reached the height of ' impresslveness when the voices of the choir rang out the Dlea Irae." which echoed throughout the " basilica.

For political reasons all Spanish, cardinals are fa vorable to Rampolla, besides a dozen Italians, . thus making a total of 25. But to be elected pope it is necessary to get altogether over 40 votes, as of the present 64 cardinals not more than two or three will be absent from the conclave. .' ' ; . The "., anti-Rampolla tendency has more prominent candidates, ;sucb as Cardinals Oreglla', iSeraflno Vannutelli, Satolli and AgUardl, (wbiob will cause dlfOculty in arriving at an agreement on any one of them., It Is already foreshadowed, that should the success of their opponents be probable, this group will center all their votes on Car dinal Capecelatro, archbishop of Cap ua. '' A cardinal wbo seemed to have considerable chance of success "was Cardinal Sarto, the patriarch of.
