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. Merry del Val la arranging
tha details.
It Is believed that this Important change
of policy will b seen next month, when
Pius X has declared ha will pay a visit to
tha monastery of Saint Cecilia, In Traste
vero, whose inmates are Benedictine nuns,
tinder tha strictest role of enclosure. Car
dinal Rampolla Is the protector of tha
order and on tha Feast of Saint Cecilia,
November 28, ha usually presides at the
pontifical mass. 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.

good wind carries us along rapidly, and at

that he means to attempt to cross the
English channel in a balloon. He said
so on his return to Paris after hearing of
the voyage of his rival. Count de la Vaux.
Santos-Damoat la Brasll.
It has been learned that the fifteen days
he spent In Brasll on his recent visit were
as many days of uninterrupted triumphs.
The enthusiasm of his countrymen over
flowed. Flotillas wer chartered by thou
sand to meet him at sea on ar.
rival. 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:

(Copyright 1903. by Press Publishing Co.)
PARIS, Oct 24. (New Tork World Cable
gram Special Telegram.) A plot was laid
to carry oft tho .former queen of Madagas
car during her visit to Paris, according to
the newspapers. 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. She flees
the Journalists as she would a pestilence
sin.'e one reporter falsely reported an inter
view he had with her.
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.

WHERE, OH WHERE, IS DIETRICH
Millard Woald I.Ik His Colleague to
Let His Friends Hear from
Uim.,
Senator Millard Is wondering whether h
ought to send a search .warrant out for
Senator Dietrich to satisfy the people who
are constantly inquiring aa to the senior
senator's whereabouts.
The announcement was made over a week
ago by the Associated Press that Senator
Dietrich had landed in San Francisco from
Alaska, but since this dispatch nothing
has been heard from him.
"I don't know where my colleague Js
sir." said Senator Millard when asked
about Senator Dietrich. "I have been try
ing to find out myself. I have been In
communication with his private secretary
at Hastings, but he insists that he Is as
much in the dark aa I am. I think Senator
Dietrich is old enough not to get lost, but
It would .relieve me grtutly if he would
let hi friends know wher he Is and when
he expects to show up in these parts.".
Senaor Dietrich left for Alaska June
1, to return to Nebraska October L and Is
therefore about a month overdue now.

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."
Two Other Record Go.
Two other world' rcorda wer broken,
Darlel, a bay mare, by Alcande, driven by
A. McDonald, paced a mil In 2;004. Th
former pacing record for a mar wa held
by Fannie DUlard, 2:03. Equity and Th
Monk, from Mr. Billings' stable, wer sent
a mile against the M2 trotting to pole
record. The two horses wer driven by
Mr. Billings In faultless style and passed
under the wlr In :o. Four other In
teresting races were decided.
