Reported to Be Dying Most Progessive Pope of Modern Times Democratio in Sentiment and a Friend of Labor Wonderful Work of Ills LIfeWho His Successor Is Likely to Be and How Chosen SLIGHT OF BODYSTRONO OF MIND The sudden decline of Pope Leo XIII has cast a gloom around the world That he has been the most progressive Pope for centuries is generally owned says a writer in the New York Journal His power as a governing intellect and as a ter HOLINESS M M wwwwwrriwE rwwdiplomat has extended outside of all religious circles His physical collapse coming so soon after Englands loss of Gladstone and Germanys bereavement at Bismarcks death isa singular coinci dence It brings before the gaze of the world a wonderful career The Morning of His Life I Pope Leo XIII came of a noble +I family His baptismal name was Vin II cenzo Gioachimo Pecci and in his veins flows the blood of the ancient Rienzi iI With his high birth and brilliant intel lect all avenues were open to him PoUt ical preferment was for the But his mother had a presentiment of his holy callingWhile in their native city of Carpento little Vincenzo and his brother Joseph were taken by their mother to the r Jesuit college at Viterbo Josephwas large and strong but the delicate sweet faced Vincenzo orIINeno as he was called at home was called LAngio letto Little Angel by the His companions nicknamed him Mater Prelates Mother of Piety from his fan cied resemblance to One of the pictures of the Virgin But that sweet boyish face n soon matured into the strong soulful and magnetic countenance that fascinated all men and drew them irresistibly to him He hesitated for a time about becom ing a priest It seemed like the renouncing of all his ambition His spiritual nature prevailed and he received holy orders It was noT long before he saw that even in the cloister the influence of a strong mind was far reachingHe in the political religious work bf the church His mission as Nuncio to the Belgian capital revealed to him and his superiors his great diplo matic power It was then that the new ambition came to him to become Pope His mothers dream at the time of his birth that this great office was in store for him inspired him still further in his efforts n Promotion quickly followed his splen did work for the church and he was made Bislip of Perugia in 1840 This was but another step toward his goal Hegath ered into his hands still other lines In brilliant service to his church he was carving out still higher steps for himself toward fame In seven years came hisapppintmentas Cidfaliutbe Consistory That was

have you taken the name of Leo asked n Cardinal the day after the Papal election Because Leo XII was a benefactor of my family answered the Pontiff and also because Leo signifies lion and the virtue which seems to me the most nec essary of all is the force of the lion His tolerance and fearlessness in ex pressing his opinion is shown by the in cidentWhen a prelate brought him the news of Renans death he remained thoughtful a moment and then asked How did he die Impenitent said the pre late The my family answered the Pontiff and then added quietly That is better The astonished prelate asked how that could be Because said the Pope Renan has proved that his doubt was sincere and therefore he will be judged by his sincer ity which if it is thorough may absolve him He once saw a newspaper article de scribing his daily life It said that he always dined alone Yes it is true I always dine alone he remarked lIand yet I am always the Thirteenth at the tableNo Pope since mediaeval times has wielded the influence of Leo XIII In twenty years he has rebuilt the Cath olic church putting it in touch with all modern progress HIS POPE LEO XIII w Italian asking devout master needed during He has shown the same progressiveness in purely material things The ancient Vatican at his magic touch has emerged from a crumbling mediaeval castle to a modern palace Its eleven thousand rooms flash with electric lights Telephones connect all its offices and halls of state Under Leos vivifying touch everything has sprung into pulsing life The Popes Daily Life Up to within a few weeks the Pope continued his marvelous activity The Popes day began with monastic regularity at 7 oclock summer and winterDressed in his woolen cassock and silk gown the Pope recited the prayers before an altar in his bedroom and then passed into an anterocm arranged as an oratory He put on the necessary vestments and celebrated mass The service lasts three quarters ofan hour After this he again retired to his room where Centra lei servant brought him a simple of coffee and a roll which constituted his entire meal It was immediately afterbreakfast that the Pope gave audience to accredited offi cials and visitors in his library But t stand before the ascetic Pontiff those who sought audience must pass through a great hall ofstate The famous Swiss Guards in gaudy uniform stand about the vestibule whil the crimson uniformed bussolante and purplerobed chamberlains pass across the hall in stately dignity Amid halls hung with rich tapestries and emblazoned with gold and gems those who are to have audience are led into the Popes library After this function was over the Pope wrote all time forenoon seated at a cano pied desk He worked methodically hour after hourr making notes onhlscor respondence for his secretaries to answer i but his principal task was penning notes for his encyclicals He revised these each day till a complete encyclical was finished It was always written in Latin It was here that Cardinal Ranipolla bringinge day Every subject was discussed and plans laid for action where that wasI necessaryAt the Pope gave an audience to distinguished visitors and crowned heads This time he occupied his throne sur rounded by his Cardinals The Evening of His Life The slmartowa began to fali about him u theyearalriiof att 1M WMWI embodied inUUtct and lout I iL that he could not perish Frail andtI I ableIwho came into his presence I Those who have gained audience with him in the last year or two have noticed his decline supported by his attendants or seated upon his exalted chair his in tellect shone as brightly as ever but in his trembling hand was an inevitable sign of decline He no longer took his usual exercise in the gardens of the Vatican His only recreation was narrowed down to a daily trip to the Citta Lconina tower within the Vatican walls On even this short route he was driven in a low carriage Alighting and supported on the arm of an attendant it became his custom to daily inspect a vine that he himself had planted in the garden at the foot of his favorite tower For many seasons he has gathered the fruit of the vine and last year to his great pleasure it yielded quite a quantity of wine Next to his vine he loved his roses But it was to the mental and spiritual that he has turned in the last days cling ing tenaciously to his routihe work In a room in the Citta Leonina tower which none but he ever entered he worked at his writing most of the remainder of the dayAt length the paralysis came on which is a hereditary trait in his family It sapped his strengh till he became a phy sical wreck Resigned to his fate he designed his own tomb and ordered its erection in his favorite church St John Lateran How Leo XIIIs Successor Will Be Elected The election of a Pope is the most im pressive ceremony in the world It is performed by the Cardinals that form the Sacred college They come together from all parts of the earth In time most elaborate state they are assigned to suites in the Vat ican In an adjoining audience hall the solemn conclave is held Cardinal Ranipolla is believed to stand the best chance of becoming the next Pope because of his prominent position as Papal Secretary of State which he has held for ten years His election however is not at all cer tain Within church circles two other very strong candidates are recognized These are Cardinal Parocchi Vicar Gen eral of Rome and Cardinal Vannutelli Cardinal Parocchi is front the north of Italy He is notedly a lover of France and on this account he has the support of the French and Russian Governments and likewise that of Spain Cardinal Vanutelli who is a native face of Romersv iI1YtW1tath I I I itherefore the favor of these Powers and it is known also that England Belgium anda number of minor countries of Europe would prefer his election Now it is a traditional fact in Papal elections that where two candidates are conspicuous an outsider or dark horse is usually the winner The reason is that a rule exists ordaining that no one can be Pope unless he has the voices of at least twothirds plus one of those who vote It is common for a minority as long as it feels secure of a vote of onethird to block the election in the hope of compelling the majority to make a compromise Time compromise then works in favor of the outsider The Sacred College of electors at its full complement numbers fifty members At present it has slightly over fifty If an election were to take place tomorrow a compact body of eighteen Cardinals could stop any candidature and the Italian Cardinals even aided by the Span lards could not elect any one without gathering some other votes The great Catholic powers such as France Austria and Spain can enter a formal veto against army man objectionable to them This has occurred several times but on recent occasions it has been customary for the veto to enable the excluded candidate to nominate a substitute and the veto can not then be repeated- Of possible dark horses among the Ital PeryCart dinal Gotti The latter isthe most prob able man of them all Gotti is a Carmelite monk He is thus inured to the

celebrating the struggle of Irishmen in 1708 for the liberty of their native land Irishmen have longed for liberty for centuries They haves unfortunately not succeeded lit liberating their country but sons and daughters of Ireland scught liberty in various countries and climes Wherever they went they became good citizens and when callcl upon never failed to answer the call to arums in behalf of their adopted country1 In no country on ei rth has this been so exemplified as hi the United states The history of time U lited States teems with the names of Irishmen and Irish Americans who have poured out their rich red blood in defense of America aim her free institutions N t a battlefield in this broad land that his not been the re cipient of Irish blood Kentucky has fur ished her quota of

itLiCC9Cd reprooule his speech delivered before his English Judges almost within time shadow of the scaffoldEvery Irishman in America knows the history of that brave young patriothas taught his children to revere the name of Robert Emmet It is not necessary to print a lengthy account f his career at the present time Robert Emmet was born on March 4 1778 He was the third son of Doctor Robert Emmet a wellknown physician of Dublin About the time that the United Irishmen were forming themselves into a secret revolutionary scciety young Robert Emmet was sent to Trinity College He soon took the lead among his fellow students on account of his pro nounced democratic views He became the leader in the debates on political questions and was expelled from college on acconnt of his extreme political views The expulsion from college occurred in February 1798 After that Emmet became the acknowl edged leerier of the Irish revolutionary party His youth cut no figure It is needless to detail here his struggles for the liberty of his country during the five succeeding year his capture after the failure of the uprising on July 23 1803 He might have gotten away had he not lingered to bid goodbye to the girl of his heart Sarah Curran who has been immortalized by Washington Irving in his Sketch Book He was arrested on Au gust 25 He was put on trial on Septem 10 charged with high treason He en tered no defense The jury without leaving the box returned a verdict of guiltyThe Judges then in due form asked Emmet if he had aught to say why sen tence of death should not be pronounced against him It was then that Emmet though little deliveredhisfor its patriotic sentiment and beauty of dictionThe speech was as follows My Lords I am asked what I have to say why sentence of death should not be pronounced on me according to law I have nothing to say that can alter your predetermination nor that it will become me to say with any view to the mitiga tion of that sentence which you are to pronounce and I must abide by But I have that to say which interests me more than life and which you have labored lo destroy I have much to say why my reputation should be rescued from the load of false accusation and calumny which has been cast upon ItIdo not imagine that seated where you are your mind can be so free from prejudice as to receive the least impression from what I am going to utter I have no opesthat I can anchor my character in the breast asnthis is I only wish and that is the ut hardshipseI ahoy suffer ft to float down your memor ies untainted by time foul breath of preju morehospttableeJ which it fabuifetd WarI only to auf flat d th lifter djwltf d guilty by your tribunal I should bow in silence and meet the fate that awaits me without ii- a murmur but the sentence of the law which delivers my body to the executioner will through the ministry of the law labor in its own vindication to con i sign my character to obloquy for there 1 must be guilt somewhere whether in the i of the court or in the catastro pie time must determine A man in my situation has not only to encounter the difficulties of fortune and the force oftpower over minds which it has corrupted or subjugated but the difficulties of established prejudice The man dies but his memory lives That mine may not perish that it may live in the respect of my countrymen I seize upon this opportunity to vindicate myself from some of the charges alleged against me When my spirit shall be wafted to a more friendly portwhen my shade shall have joined the bands of those martyred heroes who have shed their blood on the scaffold and in the field in the defense of their country and of virtue this my hopeI wish that my memory and name may animate those who survive me while I look down with complaceny on the destruction of that perfidious government which upholds its domination by blas phemyof time Most High which displays its power over man as over the beasts of the forest which sets man upon his brother and lifts his hand in the name of Godagainst the throat of his fellow who believes or doubts a little more or a little less than the government standard a government which is steeled to barbarity by the cries of the orphans and the tears of the widows it has made Here Lord Norbury interrupted Em met saying That the mean and wicked enthusiasts who felt as he did were not dual to the accomplishment their wild designsI to the immaculate GOIII swear by the throne of heaven before which I must shortly appearby the blood of the murdered patriots who have gone before methat my conduct has been through all this peril and through all tny purposes governed only by the conviction which I have uttered and by no other view than that of the emancipa tion of my country from the superinhu man oppression under which she has so long and too patiently travailed and I confidently hope that wild and chimerical as it may appear there is still union and strength in Ireland to accomplish this noblest of enterprises Of this I speakwith the confidence of intimate knowledge and with the consolation that appertains to that confidence Think not my lords I say this for the petty transitoryIhis voirg to assert a lie will not hazard iSiiS CHSftcter rtfMn505TCrtiy tyiHssehYng a falsehood on a subject so important to his country and on an occasion like this Yes my lords a man who does not wish to have his epitaph written until his country is liberated will not leave a weapon in the power of an enemy or a pretence to impeach the probity which he means to preserve even in the grave to which tyranny consigns him Here he was again interrupted by the courtAgain I say that what I have spoken was not intended for your lordship whose situation is commisserate rather than envymy expressions were for my countrymen If there is a true Irishman present let my last words cheer him in the hour of his affliction Here he was again interrupted Lord Norbury said he did not sit there to hear treasonI always understood it to be the duty of a judge when a prisoner has been convicted to pronounce the sentence ofi the law I have also understood thatI judges sometimes think it their duty toI hear with patience and to speak with hu manity to exhort the victim of the laws and to offer with tender benignity their opinions of the motives by which he was actuated in the crime of which he was adjudged guilty That a judge has thought it his duty so to have done I have no doubt but where is the boasted freedom of our institutions where is the vaunted impartiality clemency and mild ness of our courts of justice if an unfor tunate prisoner whom your policy and not justice is about to deliver into the hands of the executioner is not suffered to explain his motives sincerely and truly and to vindicate the principles by which he was actuated My lords it may be a part of the system of angry justice to bow a mans mind by humiliation to the pur posed ignominy of the scaffold but worse to me than the purposed shame of the scaffolds terrors would be the shame of such foul and unfounded imputations as have been laid against me in this court You mylord are a judge I am the sup posed culprit I am a man you are a man also By a revolution of power we might change places though we never could change characters If 7 stand at the bar of this court and dare tot vindi cate my character what a farce is your justicel If I stand at this bar and dare not vindicate my character how dare you calumniate its Does the sentence of deathwhich your unhallowed policy in filets on my body condemn my tongue to silence and my reputation to reproach Your executioner may abridge the period of my existence but while I exist I shall not forbear to vindicate my character and motives from your aspersions and as a man to whom fame is dearer than life I will make the last use of that life in doing justice tothat reputation which i to live after me and which is the only legacy I can leave to those I honor and love and for whom I am proud to perish As men my lords we must appear oath e greatday at one commontribunal and iit Will then remain for the Searcher of all hearts to show a

liMy lords will a dying man be denied the legal privilege exculpating himself in the eyes of the community from an un deserved reproach thrown upon him during his trial by charging him with ambition and attempting to cast away for a paltry consideration the liberties of his country Why did your lordships insult Or rather why insult justice in demanding of me why sentence of death should not be pronounced against me I know my lords that form prescribes that you should ask the question The form also presents the right of answering Thisno doubt may be dispensed with and so might the whole ceremony of the trial since sentence was already pronounced the Castle before the jury was empanelled Your lordships are but the priests of the oracle and I insist on the whole of the forms Here Emmet

for what end Was this the object of my ambition And is this the mode by which a tribunal of justice reconciles contradiction No I am no emissary and my ambition was to hold a place THE LATE P = O 3SS

ambition Oh my couutry was it personal ambition that could influence me Had it been the soul of my actions could I not by my education and fortune by the rank and consideration of my family have placed myself amongst the proudst of your oppressors My country was my idol To it I sacrificed i every selfish every endearing sentiment and for it I now offer up myself 0 God No my lords I acted as an Irishman determined on delivering my country from the yoke of a foreign and unrelenting tyranny and the more galling yoke of a domestic faction which is its joint partner and perpetrator in the patricide from the ignominy existing with an ex terior of splendor and a conscious de pravity It was the wish of my heart to extricate my country from this doubly riveted despotism I wished to place her independence beyond the reach of any power on earth I wished to exalt her to that proud station in the world Con nection with France was indeed intended but only as far as mutual interest would sanction or require Were the French to assume any authority incon sistent with the purest independence it would be signal for their destruction We sought their aid and we sought it as we had assurance we should obtain itas auxiliaries in war allies in peace Were the French to come as invaders or enemies uninvited by time wishes of the people I should oppose them to the utmost of my strength Yes my countrymen I should advise you to meet them upon the beach with a sword in one hand and a torch in the other I would meet them with all the destructive fury of war I wouldanimate my countrymen to immolate them in their boats before they had contaminated the soil of my country If they succeed ed ill landing and if forced to retire be fore superior discipline I would dispute every inch of ground burn every blade of grass and the last entrenchment of Tiber ty should be my grave What I could not do myself if I should fall Fshould leave as a last charge to my countrymen to accomplish because I should feel con isis unprofitable when a foreign nation holds my country in subjection But it was not as an enemy that the succors of Francewere to land Hooked indeed for the assistance of Prance but

disturbed by the present war the question naturally arises do the governments exist for the people or do the people exist for the governments Our statesmen generally regard as vis ionary any measure that involves direct financial aid to the people Yet they do not hesitate a moment to vote two or three hundred mill ions of dollars to embark on a war for which there was no need It is true the country gets control of additional territory but in the ex isting conditions of the masses what need have we of more land We have millions of uncultivated f acres scattered over the country workingmen of our cities if they hadonly a chance Here is ample field for humanity and who will say that it would not be humanity in the true sense If for instance those bright gentlemen who compose Congress and who have been often termed lithe most stupid set that ever formed an assembly had been as willing to loan a couple sof hundred millions for the better ment of the working classes as they were to prosecute a war with Spain what untold benefits to humanity would have been the resultI Instead of carnage and destruction instead ol gunpowder and torpedoes ipistcadof broken hearts and deso lated

country and the undying hostility of Prance Ger many and Russia toward us andI toward our institutions Journals that are continually urging the al liance between this country and Great Britain are doing everything to prejudice the people of America against those nations that as every young or old student of history knows were our friends when we needed them while our dear cousins the Britons

rather to the degraded con dition to which they have reduced what was once a source of innocent amusement we hope the young folks will look sharp and make all necessary improvements before the church takes hold of the matter and forbids round dancing alto getherNever till the present season has round dancing become so thor spectatorsIMany women of refinement seeing the position that their sisters take during the giddy whirl have aban doned dancing altogether What is the matter with those young women who throwing both arms around the neck of a young man seem fairly to go to sleep Are they Christian women Dancing dervishes or pagan nations could do no worse Poor deluded creatures I It is no wonder that respect for women is notably on the decline Years ago ideas were higher and the name of woman was synonym ous with mother and sanctity Nowadays it is a difficult matter to walk the public thoroughfares afte dark without being offended before getting to ones home Who is t blame Not the

American people has turned his face to England It has been hinted that be might be appointed to represent our Government at the Court of St James to which the British Saturday Review refers as follows He is simply regarded as a foolish kind of bab bling raconteur whose twaddling is largely intermixed with snobbish ness for he is nothing more than a puppet His talk has never been taken seriously The puppet char acter of the man is recognized and the fact that he is a representative of the Vanderbilts is sufficient to debar his appointment which would go far to cancel the good feeling which has sprung up and we are anxious to continue This would be impossible if a painted puppy was foisted upon us for a worse representative it would be impossible to find Sir Thomas Lipton who has caused a

Prominent Part Iin the Early Settlement of the Country The Coming of the Irish Has Enriched 1and Enlivened Our National Character THE PART THEY TAKE IN POLITICS Prof F Spencer Baldwin of Boston University told the audience thai assem bled to hear him in the Old South meet ing house last week that Ireland had contributed more to the making of Amer ica than any other country except England the mother country The lecture was the fifth in the Old South course for I young people and Prof Baldwins object I was to tell what Ireland has done for I I America I To appreciate what Ireland has done t for this country he saidwenecd tol know something about Irish character c mid Irish history He then proceeded to describe the Irish people and their in fluence in immigration speaking in sub stance as follows The Irish are a pure Celtic people made up of three different bands of Im migrants that successively took possession of Ireland in very early times The typical Celt is a person of poetic temperament frank impulsive easily impressed by new ideas yet lacking in persistent devotion to a single aim disinclined to order and prone to discussion somewhat given to ostentation and ofextreme so ciability As contrasted with the Saxon the Celt is particularly susceptible to emotion The Celt is dominated by sen timent the Saxon byreason Irish history continued the speakerjj throws a flood of light on Irish char acter If the Irish people as is charged against them are idle and turbulent their history furnishes an explanation It is hardly to be expected that a people with such a history should possess all the virtues An industrious contented def erential and lawabiding people is not produced by such a calamitous schooling I as the Irish Celt has received When did the Irish begin to come to America The common notion that the j Irish took very little part in the first set t tlement of America is quite mistaken Large numbers came to America during the 17th and 18th senturies aTwp things i may be said abomitThe prermThtiTiii3- rish immigration It was very exten ive and it was not localized It poured nto alt the Colonies from Massachusetts Ito Georgia In the revolution the Irish orea prominent and honorable part Nine signers of the Declaration of Inde jin pendcnce were IrishcAs regards the extent of Irish mmmiiip ration during the present century sta tistics show that from 1820 to 1897 out ofa total of 18500000 foreign iuiini grants nearly 4000000 came from Ire nd Tile only country that has sent us more immigrants than Ireland is Ger any The Irish represented in 1800 20 er cent of the entire foreignborn popu latlon Persons of Irish parentage con itute 8 per cent of the total popula onTime bulk of the Irish population is found in the cities especially in the great cities of the Atlantic seaboard Over one rourth of the total Irish population found in four citiesNew York Phila ndelphiaI tied in the cities because they had no oney to get farther west because there was a demand for unskilled labor begofcause they are a clannish and sociable eopleEpre rred Fifteen per cent are engaged In of agriculture 10 per cent in professional service 42 per cent in domestic and is personal service 15 per cent In trade 1 andtransportation 25 per cent in manu ctures in Race characteristics have had some thing to do with the Irishmans choice of occupation but necessity more As a rule the immigrant is not fitted for the illed trades so he has to turn too often odd occupations such as hackdriving saloonkeeping and what not America received a great addition to its labor rce through Irish Immigration And it a labor force that has been pretty in- ustriously ofj applied Whatever they may at home the Irish are not idle in this untryeThe political importance of the Irish population is out of all proportion to its I actual numbers They are concentrated the cities where they control thes reign vote they nearly all go to the polls their vote is always cast soli4m These
