Cardinals tfxchange Ideas. An exchange of Ideas took place regard ing the ceremonies preceding the conclave. , When Cardinal OregMa asked for the ad vice of i one of the cardinals . present, the latter replied; "It Ih. difficult, to ;tve advice. Indeed, you must lejch ui whn( to do. as not one nt n has ever participated In a conclave." The following telegram, dated Molds, ' Norway, has been received by Cardinal i Oreglla from the -German emperor: MOLDE, Norway,' July 20. 1H03. I am painfully affected by the sad news I have just received. I send to the illustrious college -of cardinals the expression of my sincere sympathy at the grievous loss the Roman- Catholic church has sustained througlV the demise of the pope. I shall always retain a faithful memory of the exalted and venerable man, who was a personal friend of mine, and whose extra ordinary gifts of heart and mind compelled "my admiration only a few weeks ago on the occasion, of my last visit to Rome.

Through ' the night and early morning several emblems xst grief were displayed, but the main thoroughfare did not present a spectacle of universal, mourning. No flags were half-masted and no buildings were shrouded In crape, as when the tem poral rulers pass away. iThe closo and other busy centers presented the usual scenes of 'animation. It was in the poorer aectlons of the city that the evidence of grief ware most manifest. Entering the Borgo 'district,' leading to the Vatican, the hum of 'excitement attending tha event was more, .apparent. A .line of carriage bearing diplomats swung through the nar row lane, called the Via Borgo, leading to the piaxxa of Bt. Petera. , Coming to the plana of Bt. Petera a scene of vital interest began to unfold Itself. There was not the slightest sign of bustle or confusion. The vast expanse enclosed within the atately colonnade looked majestic In its serenity. Although groups hurried here and there, their pres ence was completely lost In the vastness of the whole. Near the esplanade there waa now and then a sign of mourning. The main entrance '"of the Vatican showed the brief evidence of activity. As the carriages drove up with distinguished pre lates the heavy Iron chains continued to keep back the crowd, leaving a narrow atsle for the arriving dignitaries. Behind the chains were massed a crowd of curi ous sightseers. The official presence of the Italian .soldiery was kept noticeably In the background. Near the stone steps stood an officer of tho Italian Grenadiers in fa tigue uniform and cup, with a amall de tachment of soldiers, so broken Into squads that they did not have tha appearance of beln lit martial array. With them were the Vatican and municipal police in their somber uniforms, with broad chapeaus, soma topped with little blue pompona. Tha ponderous bronsa doors of the Vat ican were closed, presenting a front which, might ive withstood an army. The only mean of Ingres waa a amall opening cut through the solid bronse bas reliefs. Be hind Oils tiny entrance, only wide enough to admit a single person, stood a Swiss guard, with fixed bayonet.

On either aide are great marble etoplds while the light comes dimly from- abore, through two domes surrounded by ex quisite modules, one showing th apostles and saints and another an angelic chorus. The workmen pounded and called out their commands. In strange contrast with the solemn surroundings. The. Interior of- the church wa as yet undraped with mourning. The masslva crimson hangings had been removed, bring ing out the ghastly whiteness of the co lossal marble nave. At the further end could be seen groups of priest, kneeling about tho tomb of St. Peter, where scores of tapers burn unceasingly. Only tho usual musses were said during the morning, a the ceremonials In connection With the death of the pope have yet to be arranged. Within the right nave still another prep aration for the pope' obsequies were going on. This was the preparation of the chapel of the holy sacrament for receiving his body after Its removal from the Vatican. Cardinal Resplghl, the vicar of Rome,- had given order for these arrangement. Al though Cardinal Oreglla has uprm com mand of the interest of the church. It Is Cardinal Resplghl who has been given im mediate charge of the personal affair re lating to the dead pop. The beautiful chapel waa for the time being Invaded by sweepers and cleaner, who poured bucket of water on the mosalo pavement and then began scouring it Th front of the chapel is .cut off from th main church by a massive trellce, through which th faithful can look on th altar, within. This Is of solid brass, with bras kneeling angels. Before the altar la a narrow space, where Leo' coffin will be deposited when It tomes from the Vatican. Thl space Is so small that the foot of the casket will extend to the Iron trellce. Th purpose of this arrangement is to carry out th an cient ceremony by which the Actual foot of the dead pontiff will extend through the iron bars, to permit the kneeling faith ful to approach and kiss the last remnant of former papel authority through it. . This morning people crowded about the grating and gazed at the preparation going on within. TALK AS TO THE NEW POPE Condition Are Bach He Mar Be Man Hot Yet Mentioned for tho Place. ROME, July 21. According to a state ment coming from a high ecclesiastical source, the arrangement at the Vatican are being pressed forward which will en able tha conclave of cardinals to begin sitting August 1. However, It 1 thought tha sessions msy last considerably longer than at first expected even long enough to permit Cardinal Moran of Bydney, N. 8. W., to arrive In time to take part in the proceedings.. An ambassador accredited to he Vatican says the question of Pope Leo' successor I a peculiarly open one at tha present moment. Tha personality of the candidates playa a much more Important part than In any preceding conclave, since th condi tions prevailing In the past are now en tirely changed. Formerly the sacred college was dkvlded Into aeveral distinctive parties. There was, first, that composed of the cardinal who were member of the great Roman fami lies, nearly everyone of which wa repre sented In the colleges. These always ex erted very powerful Influence in the elec tion of a pope. At the present time there la only one scion of a great Roman house among the cardinals, namely, Cardinal Battlsta Casall del Drago, who, from the standpoint of the election of a new pon tiff, is relatively unimportant. Then there were parties composed of cardinal ap pointed by the same pope, who usually ranged themselves Into separate bodies. In addition to the members of the sacred col lege apolnted by the pope who had then Just passed away, ther were usually consid erable numbers chosen by hi predecessor, and then a few nominated by th pope preceding him. In consequence of Leo XIII's long reign, these parties hav entirely disappeared. In the present conclave there will be only one cardinal, Cardinal Oreglla, who waa not apolnted by Pope Leo. As a result of these changed conditions, the approaching conclave will be much more under the ln- nuenoe or Individual randldatea than in the past, rendering - it impossible to forecast the election with any degree of certainty. It Is considered highly probable that th new pope will be a man at present not thought of and not talked about. The Trlbuna today published an inter, view with Cardinal 8vampa, archbishop of Bologna, who, the paper says, has quite recovered from his stroke of paralysis. Th cardinal I quoted saying: Th conclave will be verv short the last two. At the utmost I hnv may take one week, as now ther does not exist In th acred oolleBe the marked po litical differences of other times. There fore, It will be possible to arrive at an understanding more easily and quicker. The Interviewer asked the cardinal what ha thought the policy of th future pop would b In regard to th ao-called Roman question. Will It remain rigidly unchanged, or will th new pope inaugurate modus Vivendi, which many persons in both camps wish forT Cardinal Svampa replied: No on today ran Bay with certainty anything about that. But It must not be foignttvn that whoever is elected will bring something personal Into th attitude of th Holy Be regarding that question. oni tiiin' wUlch, iuur ut ), uu4 (U3rii ate from the altitude of the former pope.

IN HONOR OF LATE PONTIFF Memorial Service of Omaha niocese Will He Held Here Thursday-. The first local official notice of the demise of Pope Leo XIII was taken by Father Colanrrl, . chancellor of the diocese, who Issued the following circular addressed to the priests of the diocese: The Great Leo XIU has gone to his reward, and while the church is mourning the beloved Father of Christendom, ask the people under your care to offer up special prayers that Uod may soon grant us another shepherd like unto Leo. To this end. Kev. rather, you will please discon tinue, for the time being, the oratlo lmperata "Pro Quacumque Necessitate" and In Its place recite the oratlo "De Splrltu Sancto.1' Bishop Bcannell will return from Colorado Wednesday and on Thursday there will be held the memorial service of the diocese In honor of the late pontiff. At that service the bishop will be present at the celebration of the mass, and may be the celebrant, but this Is not definitely decided. In case ho doe not act In that capacity the cele brant will be Father Colanerl. The bishop will preach the sermon. The exact church at which this service, will be held is not settled upon, but at that time no other church In the See city will hold services, to enable the priests and people to attend the service In which the bishop will participate. Buch other services aa will be held In the church of the diocese, as to time and character, are in the hands of the pastors of the different par ishes, with the exception of the change In the prayers of the mass, as Indicated above. GIBBONS OUTLINES PROGRAM Cardinal Leave Instruction Which Will Likely Govern Chnrehes In I'nlted States. BALTIMORE, July 21. Before Cardinal Gibbon departed for Romo he left with Rev., Dr.' William A. Fletcher, rector of the cathedral, an outline of the services he de sired held In the churches of this province, and which will supposedly be followed by all Catholic churches throughout the TTnlted Btates. The plan Is set forth in the following statement furnished , by Dr. Fletcher today at the request of the Asso ciated Press: Prior to his departure for Rome his emi nence desired that a solemn pontifical re quiem mass be celebrated In the cathedral, to which all the bishops of this province and the reverend clergy of the archdiocese will be invited. The mass in the cathedral will take place on the day of the funeral In Rome. Right Rov. Bishop Curtis will officiate. The dis course will be preached by Right Rev. Bishop Donahue of Wheeling. The ceremonies and music will be of the most impressive character. The cathedral will be draped in mourning within and without for thirty days. Every evening until after the funeral, at the hour of the de profundas, 7 o'clock, the cathedral bell will be tolled for thirty minutes. This is the program which has been adopted for the cathedral. No doubt the pastors of the other churches will make similar arrangements. FREEDOM FOR THE CARDINALS Pope Leo Leave s Bnll by Which Method of election I . Changed. NEW TORK. July 21.-An unverified re port, published by the Temps and cabled by the Paris correspondent of the Herald, says: ,. - , rjj' At the death of Leo XIII a certain num ber of bulls were found which partially changed the form of the conclave. Thl In fact will no longer be a conclave, properly speaking, as the cardinals will not be re stricted as to their movements. They will simply assemble twice a day for deliberations and balloting, without be ing constrained to live In common, which is always harrowing for ill and infirm cardinals. They will take an oath each time they leave the Vatican to reveal nothing s.nd not to be Influenced by any government. The pope has a right to modify the method of election and bulls to that effect remain In force until modified or abrogated by a succeeding pope. Leo XIII Bhortly be for the death of Plus IX, when he was camerllngo, made several modification In the rule governing the conclave. It Is not unlikely, however, that he had planned more modifications more essential and ap propriate to jnodern tlmea. LEO FRIEND OF AMERICA Freedom of the Church Here Afforded Great Consolation to Pontiff. NEW TORK, July 21. Archbishop Farley of thla city ha paid his tribute to the dead pope In the following language: The history of hut pontificate, with Its marvels and its blessings, point to Leo XIII aa having been pre-eminently a chosen In strument In the hands of Divine Providence His paternal, solicitude extended to all peoples. America always had a large share of both his pronounced aftoction and his anxious care. With what emotion I recall the words that fell from those venerable lips as I bade farewell at the end of a memorable audience, aner ne naa listened to an ac count of the progress of the church in this, our dlocess, during his own lifetime. "Ah," h. .U M 11 II 1 1 H nr.tr . U ,7 trials AmaI I. my consolation. There the church enjoys liberty. In the United Btates she Is free to build her churches and her schools un molested. Here In Rome, I, the vicar of Christ, am as a slave, deprived of free action. In Italy, in France, the church Is being persecuted by those who should de fend her. Thank God for the consolation that comes to us from free America." Governments Will Not Interfere. PARIS, July 21. The Associated Press la authorized by the French Foreign office to aay that the French government ha taken no steps to exert any Influence on the conclave and it is believed the other Catholic states will adopt the sam course. It Is Improbable that a change in the head of the Holy See will result In any change in the relations of Franc to the Vatican, unless tha new pope proves to be another Plus IX. but that Is a matter wherein 'It 1 impossible to express an opinion 'until the new pope Is elected. While the French sympathies lean to ward Cardinal Rampolla, no ateps are be ing taken in his favor. The cardinal archbishop of Paris ha or dered a solemn mass for the repose of the soul of the pope at Notre Dame on Tues day next.
