I Tha announcement made on tha very 'lay of the election of tha new pope, that Pius X did not Intend to follow the policy of his predecease toward the Italian gov ernment, by remaining a prisoner in the Vatican, has received confirmation on sev eral occasions. Pius X has made known his decision to his sisters and relatives, whom he dlreotly authorised to make the statement public, that h intends to come out of tha Vatican as soon as the neces sary arrangements for his safeguard are made by the Italian government, with which Mgr.

It to not Improbable that Pius X will assist In person at tha celebra tion as a apodal mark of regard to the nuns, who, of all the religious Institutions of Roma, have been especially devoted to tha Holy Sea under preceding popes. Dliilike Hew Secretary. The nomination of Mgr.' Merry del Val as secretary of stats, though not unex pected, has created great excitement, the Italian preaa being unanimously unfavor able, not fjnly because the new papal premier Is a foreigner, but because under the reign of Lao XIII ha gave many evi dences of being opposed to a liberal policy toward Italy. Austria, whose government a few weeks ago rejected hla nomination aa nuncio to Vienna, la also considered to be hostile to the young prelate, while In the sacred college many of the cardinals are openly making oaustlo comments ajid criticism regarding the selection of so young a man for on of the most Important office of the church. Th new secretary of state will need all the tact and diplomacy he can command to keep hla position long In th fac ot suoh open hostilities on the part of many of th moat prominent prelate of th curia, who will at least attempt to make his tenure of offlc rather disagreeable.

At 700 meter (12,300 feet) altitude we pass along tha border of the Olse betweeen Boran and Morlaye. A good wind carries us along rapidly, and at 4:40 p. m. we perceive the Aeroclub, which the Duke and Duchess d'Uses and Jacques Faure occupy. Then we pas the Orient, piloted by Castlllon de St. Victor, accompa nied by Don Jayme de Bourbon. Midnight Hour of crime. We are 1,900 meter (6,200 feet) above a country which appear to us hilly and wooded; no light, no life; one sleeps; It Is like death. At 1 o'clock we pass Ems, then Hunter.

"But we are satisfied with our race, 850 kilometers (528 miles) at sixty kilometers (thirty-seven miles) an hour."

No gig In the navy was good enough for bringing him to shore, so they took the label off the barge in the museum which iiau never wen usea dui py Dom Pedro and Dom Juan VII, and In that ha landed. Once on land enthusiasm became delirious. Along the 2.000 mile he traveled to greet relatives and friends there was continuous cheering. On his return affairs at one time threatened to take a tragical turn. He went ashore at Pernambuco, where a irrand dinner Vas offered him by the gov- I ernor; the palace was Invaded by th crowd, and In the crush that followed a number of persons were Injured. On San-tos-Dumont's request the reception was In terrupted and he had to be protected by troop in order to get on board again. On being asked why he had not brought an aeromotor with him he spoke of the ex pense. Thereupon a prise of $100,000 was voted by congress for an Internationa com petition of a course of sixteen miles, th greater part over the bay of Rio. "A rather dangerous undertaking," says Santoa-Dumont. "mora dangerous than at Mont Carlo, for the bay simply abounds with sharks." Lieut. Von Korwaln. chief of th Aus trian military aeronautic department, and companion of Archduke Leopold Salvator, on leaving Paris last night for Velnna, said to the World correspondent: "I have concluded an important arrange ment with Count de la Vaux to take part in the ballooning contest In th St. Louis exposition.

Ranavola formerly was monarch of hnr native Island, but France sent an army there six years ago, conquered the natives and sent their deposed queen Into exile In Algeria, where she has been kept In seclusion and on the most meager allowance ever since, for fear that if she were given her liberty her loyal people might rise up and make trouble. Two years ago she was permitted to come to Paris, always th city of her dreams, and where she had her gowns made when she wore a crown and had a court But she was only allowed to stay a little while and then sent back to Africa. Not long ago she was per mitted to go to South Africa with her aunt and her little niece. The story of the plot to kidnap her waa based on a fervid espousal of her cause by the "Emperor of Sahrabs," picturesque Generalissimo Labordesque, a noted duelist, who struts the boulevards In a scarlet cloak and self-sufficiency. He wrote to tha gov ernment: "You allow th queen to literally die of hunger. If you refuse to allow her a pen sion of 60,000 franca ($12,000) I shall keep her. If you refuse I shall open a public subscription, and In a few days shall have millions." "The abdication did not take place, how ever, and the queen returned to Africa, probably to live in an Alegrian boarding house at $6 a week, which would be about In keeping with the allowance of tha gov ernment Ranavola earn to Parts from Vic-8ur-Cere near Auvergne, where she excited no little Interest. She was accompanied by her aunt, her little niece, Marie Louise, anil a French companion, Mrs. Delpen.

The queen was greatly pleased with her surroundings in south France and often made exucurslon Into the mountains, but In order that no photograph should be taken of her she continually wore a whit veil. She is very childish, loving bright pretty things and gayety with th same eagerness that her niece does. When an obliging person took her automobile riding she was enchanted. But soon she grew frightened and asked to be set down. She takes great interest In her toilet, though It Is very modest Now this poor little queen without a crown does not know what will become of her. Her movements are re stricted and her Income Is very small. Bha would be very happy to live in Paris, but ha accept her fat with an almost pa thetlo submission.

MEMPHIS, Oct 24.-LOU Dillon, th peer less trotter, owned. by C. K. G., Billing pf Chicago and driven by Millard Bandera, this afternoon proved her right to th proud title of queen of th turf by trotting a mils under adverse conditions In th re markable time of 1:58H- Th daughter of Sidney Dillon was paced by a runner, driven by Scott McCoy, and another runner followed closely to urg th mar to a supreme effort. Th track of the Memphl Driving club never showed to better. advantage. Team and sprinklers wera employed throughout th day putting on finishing touches, and when the tlm for Lou Dillon's trial arrived the course was perfect. A strong wind from tha north swept down the long baoH r.retch, however, and Judge Newton an nounced to the spectators that too much should not be expected of th gam llttl trotter. Lou Dillon appeared on the track at 5:10 p. m. and after a preliminary canter, San ders announced that he was ready for th start. The two runners were aligned In position and It was noticed that a atrip of board a yard wide was fastened to tha pace maker' ulky. This, It was an nounced, was used to keep the dust from the mare's face. At the first start Sander nodded for the word and th flag dropped. Trotter Crowds Runner. After going an eighth of a mil Sander yelled to McCoy to drlv faster and It looked as If the mar would catch th runner. Making the first turn, th remark able work of Lou Dillon could be better seen by the thousands present and Ilk a pleca of' perfect machinery she reached the. quarter pole In 30 seconds. In the turn for the back stretch many expected to tee the champion falter because ofth wind. To the sjrprise of everyone Lou Dillon seemed to travel faater, and when th half mile was reached, th timer clicked out 0:6914, a great cheer arose and many horsemen predicted that a new mil record wa making. On th far turn, McCoy was forced to whip tho runner to keep, clear of the trotting marvel which was puhin hlra closely. Th three-quarters pel wag passed In 1:2SH and th mar had turned for home. The wind now waa an advan tage rather than a detriment and with a superb burst of speed, Lou Dillon, urged on by tha shouts of th driver of th run ner, dashed under th wir In 1:6814. When th tlm wa flashed to tha spec tators, hata wer flung high Into th air and cheer followed cheer. 8anders waa literally lifted from hla sulky by aa ad miring throng and Mr. Billings was showered with congratulatlona. It was a noticeable fact that the watches of tha three official timers agreed to th frac tion and many horsemen standing In tha Infield caught the tlm as officially an nounced to a fraction. Th timer wra Bud Doyle, Fred Hartwell of Chicago and John Dlckerson of New York. After the mare had been blanketed and sent to her barn, Sanders, her driver, saldi 'I am not a bit surprised at th result of Lou Dillon's effort. I expected to break the world's record despite tha advers con ditions. I desire to say that It Is my candid opinion that Lou Dillon can trot aa fast aa any horse in the world can pac and next year I will demonstrate this atatmnt With perfect condition today I would be afraid to say how fast th mar would have trotted th mile."
