ROME, May 14 (New Tork World Ca blegramSpecial Telegram.) An Independ ent Catholic party la soon to be organised In Italy, th principal aim of which will b th participation of Italian Catholic In active political life. Immediately after the death of the late pope It was hoped that his successor vrould change the policy of the papacy toward the government and. even if not explicitly renouncing all claims to temporal power, at least permit Italian Catholics to vote. But the liberal tendencies which were known to form part of th charaoter of Cardinal Sarto before hi election to the papal throne aeem to have disappeared since his election, and tha appointment aa secretary of state of a foreigner, who waa well known for his unoompromlslng hos tility toward the Italian authorities, has decided the leaders of th Cathollo party to this important step. No one Imagines that the Vatican will approve this move ment but it is hoped that after the ad vantages accruing from a large Cathollo vote have been shown th Vatican will at least permit it It was Plua IX who, after tha annexation of Roma by the Italian government ut tered the famous "Non expedlt" by which all Italian Catholics were forbidden to vote for candidates for Parliament The policy of Plus IX was strictly followed during tha twenty-five years of tha reign of th late pop, with th consequence that nearly all the members of tha Italian Parliament are at present either hostile to the church or members of rocletles which the church does not allow Catholics to Join, Cheek aa Legislation. Much legislation hostile to the church haa been approved by Parliament and much of th church property confiscated by the government. It 'is claimed by - Cathollo leaders that such would not have been th case If a majority of the members of the lower house had bean, allied with th church. - - . The fact that th relations between the authorities of th Vatican and Qulrlnal, although carried on in secret ar at pres ent very cordial, gives tha outward hos tility of the Vatican a form of artificiality which la declared to b Inconsistent At any rat th party 1 soon to be organised and there la no doubt that many f th Italian bishops and cardinals' in sympathy with th movement will encourage it To overcome any possible objection from th Vatican authorities their explicit con sent will not be naked. It is baUeved that whan tha organisation shall have assumed large proportions tha great number of car dinals who ar in sympathy with th move ment will be able to obtain at least th tacit consent of th pop a At th do of th medical congress In Rom Tins X gar a private audience to Dr. Boles aria, who haa charge of th md loal investigations Into th miracles which are proclaimed at Lourde. Th pop said: "We must not apeak of miracles without serious reasons. W live in a time when many things ar caused by suggestion, at least from th view point of human science. As to th sanctuary of Lourde a, I hop it will not parish and that th virgin will pre serve It Th splendid fight made by th bishop of Tarbes for its preservation makes ma feel confident that th famous sanctu ary will survlvi all hostile action." Lapponl Fied Oat. Th dismissal of Dr. Lapponl from th ofllc of special medical attendant of tha pope, after hie many years of solicitous ministrations, was not ntlrly due to th destr of Plua X to hav his own Venetian physician. Dr. Lapponl haa been Insistent that the pop should not remain a pris oner In th Vatican, Uk hi predecessor, but should aaek more exercise and even tually chang of climate. He even In stated on th necessity for this step, say ing ha oould not otharwla guarantee permanent good health for Ms illustrious patient - Some members of th pope's en tourage suggested that this change of front had perhaps its origin In th tact that tha doctor was a Free Mason, a Plus X re luctantly asked for th resignation of th old and faithful doctor, a whom, however, others honor will be conferred. Pwpe at a Cartatealaa;. Tha flrat christening honored by th pope's presence ta centuries, took plao tha other day. Tha child was th daughter of poor Roman parents, who was being christened by a curat of St Peter just as Plus X descended Into th church to receive th members of a pilgrimage from south Italy. Aa la th custom, th pop mad a tour of the large basilica, stop ping her and there to chat with hta visi tors. On passing th chapel, where th baptismal font la kept h stepped to In quire about th child, and insisted on sug gesting the nam to be given to It speak ing words of noouragement to th sur prised parents, and giving tha papal bless ing to tha newly mad Christian.

Th "commis sion appointed to supervise th music in the churches of th diocese of Rome Is hard at work examining all th numerous compositions which ar submitted as com plying with the wishes of the pope. Each of the pieces approved is marked with a special seal, which Is to be reproduced In all subsequent editions, and without which no composition is to be used In any of th Roman churches. Similar commissions are being appointed in every dioces of th world, and their Jurisdiction will be limited to the terri tory of th dioces in which they ar ap pointed. Much gratification to felt In th Vatican at tha prompt attention given by th United States hierarchy to the papal de cree, and, although it Is admitted that the reforms proposed by Plus X cannot be In troduced In the churches of America in their entirety by reason of the different local conditions. Plus X has several times pointed out the prompt obedience of the American bishops as an example to be followed by other dioceses in Europe. Since th first performance of purely Gregorian muslo In St Peter's the suc cess of th proposed reform has received a slight setback. The pop has been In formed that owing to the Immensity of the church, only those in the Immediate vicinity of the papal altar could hear the singing, notwithstanding the great number of the choristers, and many are the "mots d'esprit" exchanged by th Romans over the dryness of the Gregorian chant The hotel keepers of Rome hav also raised their voice in protest fearing that tha abolition of the old muslo may hurt their interest as many were th visitors to Rome on special occasions who came Just to enjoy the muslo. But this argu ment has no weight with th pope, as his object Is to have muslo that will express the worship and that will not attract people to come Just to enjoy it Notwithstanding the pope's orders that a special approved edition of Gregorian chants be published immediately, the committee in charge finds much difficulty In deciding which of , the systems Is tha correct one. aa even among the members of tha Benedictine order, whose manuals were considered the exact text there Is much diversity of opinion.

Tlie ballot on the retirement of these high officials was taken at noon today and while the vote Is closely guarded and will not be mad public until the tellers' report to the conference next Monday morning, it, can be tated with every asanranc that those above named will be placed on the super annuatd roll. The committee on episcopacy, whoa duty It was to consider this Important matter end make recommendation to the general oonfereno. did not include th nam of Bishop Foss among those to be retired.

The action of the conference to day created six vacancies In the board of bishops.
