Lies LiM XII the Least of Popes OF OF Leo XIII was in Rome when Leo XII died and his successor was elected He was only a student at the time and his letters to his brother John Baptista give ing a full account of these notable events are of special interest just now when the world is hearing alarming reports of the health of the present Pope and is talking of the choice of his successor Pecci the present Pope was then nineteen years old and a student at the College in Rome His letters written at that time to his broth ers to whom he was deeply attached Lave been and lately Under date of February 20 1829 he wrote to John my last letter I you with the fact of the Iopes death and now let me tell you all the We in Rome even did not expect his death for he was ill only five days dying at 1050 on the 10th He had ruled for five years four months and thirteen days teti days longer than Pope Sixtus V Under date of February 2ii he wrote Before I tell you what after the Popes death let me tell you that he left a remarkable will He states that no monument must be erected to him as has been the custom Iieorders that on the proper day his body shall be near the statue of Pius VI anti thatr a simple stone tablet shall be placed over it with the Here lies Leo XII the Least of the Popes There is f much talk about this in 0 F Rome As soon as the Pope had drawn his last breath in Cardinal Galeffi the who rules the church at the head ora council of three Cardinals until the new Pope is elected began the for the occasion as follows He the death broke the fishermans ring and the seal and took an escprt front the Swiss guard I must note however that Cardinal Galeffi enjoys the affec tions of the people and when he goes on the street they bow lower before him than they ever did before time Pope Ifa the people had the casting of the votes this Cardinal would be the hours after his death the body of the Pope was embalmed and brought into the Sistine Chapel Later the body was taken into the chapel of the Jtloly Sacrament of St Peter where it teas viewed by crowds of people for three days and they were even allowed to salute his feet On Sunday he was at last buried near the ashes of Pius VII The on which the i 1body lay was a most wonderful pyramid adorned wfth bas reliefs and medallions bearing the picture of Leo the arms of his family etc Thirteen days after the Popes death the conclave of cardinals met o Several days before the meeting of the conclave the young student wrote there were rumors certain lodges It was said that certain per sons who did not like the regime had held meetings It is certain that Capel letti who acted as Governor of Rome for the College of Cardinals gave orders for the arrest of a large number who had taken part ip the meeting and that a hundred diggers were found in a private t house inhabited by one cf the The plot was to wait until the Cardinals had met raise a rebellion in the city and those itl authority But thanks be to God Dominus consillia eorum God has made vain their plans On the day of time conclave the guards to the number of COO were stationed around the building while other Consta bles in citizens clothes

advises them to delay the election until the French Cardinals arrive The Romans felt satisfied this morning that the new Pope was elected in the person of Cardinal de Gregorio On the rumor a great crowd went to Montccavallo I went too but we saw the clouds of smoke rise and our hopes i were shattered This reference to smoke relates to the custom of burning the ballots when a vote has been taken without result All about the conclave is dark and uncertain the student wrote on March 13 Each one wants to elect that Car dinal most pleasing to him and from whom he can expect most as Pope On this account they would have as many Popes as there are Cardinals Cardinal de Gregorio is certainly as we say here papabile worthy to be elected Pope It Seems probable that he will be elected Pope This is the rumor current in Rome at least Hut be it as it may the hope here is general that we soon have a Pope Yesterday the French Cardinals Latil Isoard and the ninetyyearold Tirrae entered the conclave

conclave young Pecci wrote on March 20 It is reported that Iacca has no longer a following in the conclave De Gregorio hiss good prospects a large number of the Ctirdinnls vote for him and no other Cardinal Albani and his fol lowers are fighting for Castiglione Car dinals Cristaldi and Cappellari are con stantly gaining votes and it is reported that Cardinal Tirrao has informed the College of Cardinals that the King of Naples will not recognize De Gregorio if elected All of this is mere rumor and if I wished to report all that are flying I should never stop Sonic hold that a Pope will be elected in a few days oth ers that a ionths even a + yearwill pass before anyyone is elected One says the Cardinals are fighting 11ke toad another that the most beautiful harmony rules in their meeting I will tell you of the outcome as soon as it is announced On April 2 1829 he writes At last God be praised we have a new Pope a new Bishop of Rome He is Cardinal Franciscus Xaverius Castiglione de Cin goliabout sixtyeight years old At last the task of electing Pope has beer accomplished We are under the rule of another Pius after an interval of five yearsNo one deemed it possible that Tues day March 31 would bring about such a conclusion On Sunday March 29 it began to rain in torrents and contin ued all day Monday Tuesday it rained so hard that the streets looked like seas It is not surprising that time Tibr has almost overflowed its banks How could we expect a new Pope in such weather Yet the Pope has been elected About noon 1230 repeated salutes of artillery from the Castle of St Angela announced the news Notwithstanding the down pouring rain a great crowd hastened to Montecavallo in front of the Quirinal to hear the announcement which was made by Carninal Albani as first deacon surrounded by four of the Cardinals The new Pope contrary to the usual custom did not go to the Basilica of the Vatican on that day He waited until yesterday morning so as to make his en try in greater state and ceremony Ac cording to ancient custom he was in a carriage and Cardinals Della Somaglia and Galeffi sat with him The people in the streets received him with tumultuous enthusiasmWhen he reached St Peters he was carried in a seaau chair into the chapel of the Holy Sacrament thence he walked to the high sitar before the confession of St Peter There he sat down and per mitted all the Cardinals to kiss his feet and his knee when he embraced them and gave them the kiss of peace After this he returned to the Quirinal for the present The bearer of the cross who rode in

living so he came to America and at once set out for Cincin nati In six months time he was ace knowledged to be the best plasterer in that city and at once went into business on his own hook At that time plasterers were as scarce as hens teeth in Louisville Mr Ban nons fame had spread however and when the time came to plaster the Cathe dral of the Assumption in 1850 Mr Bannon was brought down here to do the work It was the best piece of work in Louisville and in 1852 when the Baptists built their church at the corner of Fourth and Walnnt streets Mr Ban non was recalled front Cincinnati to do the work About that time he made up his mind that it would be cheaper for him to remain in Louisville than to be kept chasing up and Iowa the Ohio river He accordingly located here He made money

the Recent Elections In an interview in London oh the sweeping Nationalist victory in Ireland John Dillon gives the following as the final result The Irish local government elections were fought on strictly political lines nationality against unionism with the provincesobliterated and in Ulster the Nationalists have a substantial majority of twenty eight out of thirtythree The City Coun cils are entirely in the hands of the Nationalists and will be used as weapons to forward the national cause Iii response to appeals from Mr Davitt William OBrinand myself the Nationalists in the elections san all differences among themselves and united against the Unionists and whatever maybe the course adopted by the Irish members of Parliament I have no doubt a united Irish national party will result within time next few months Mr Balfour had been led to Hope that the Irish people would accept the local government act as a substitute for home rule and that the elections would be run on nonpolitical lines The result how ever has disappointed all of the govern meats calculations It his undoubtedly produced ft profound effect on public opinion in England But what I attach the most

Adventurous Life But Seems to Be a Born Soldier He IHOf Irish Ancestry on Both Sides of the House sod Proud of It HE IS NOW A BRIGADIER GENERAL The life of Fred Funston of the Twentieth Kansas reads like a romance His daring gallantry in swimming a river in Luzon with his troops earned for him the rank of Brigadier General Col John F Finerty of the Chicago Citizen notices the heroic deed in his paper and says of it Fred Funston of Kansas is perhaps the boldest soldier of the closing lustre of this country But Lanncs and Ney of the French army were equally daring The fanners charge at Arcola and the latters capture of Manheim exactly one hundred years agowere exploits worthy of Spartans The Kansas troops are not however the first who swam rivers to achieve victory Time Irish Brigade won immortal renown by doing the same thing at Cassano in Italy while fighting the Austrians under Prince Eugene in 1805 The regiments of Burke and Dillon swam time River Adds tying their mus kets on

C l + Finerty may not have known that the ICansas hero comes of tfie fighting tock of the Kellys Burkes and Sheas ChicagoTribunebackbone He says The grandfather of Gen Fred Funston was born in the County Donegal Ireland in the year 1800 He was brought by his parents to time United States who landed in Balti more in 1800 and settled in Paris Ky Springfield Frederick and for him the Kansas soldier was named He married in 1823 Miss Julia Stafford who was born in Giles county Va but whose parents were natives of Ireland In 1830 Edward Hogue Funston was born in Clark coun ty Ohio He lived on a farm till the beginning of the civil war when he volunteeredand went to war as a Second Lieutenant in a battery of artillery which was commanded by Capt Anderson Mitchell Just before the battery went rumbling off to battle the young Lieu tenant was married to Miss Anne Eliza Mitchell a sister of the artillery Captain and a daughter of James Mitchell a farmer She too was born on a farm in Ohio in Marion county Her father was born in Ireland Her greatgrandmother was a sister of Daniel Boone It would seem as if Gen Funston was a fighter by hereditary right it was suggested 0 yes said his father He gets his fighting blood from his mother IIVOU were a soldier nnd come of the fighting race IIYes but his motheris Irish too with a fighting heritage from Daniel Boones family No he gets his fighting blood front his mothers side One Would never think it to look at the gentle sweetfaced fragile little woman the mother of the daredevil soldier of Malolos that she had bequeathed to him the spirit that prompted him to deeds of fame She is so small that one is im pelled to notice the slightness of her figure when she stands alone When she stands beside her husband the figures of the two form a striking contrast He is six feet and two inches in height and weights 225 pounds The contrast is in more respects striking She is yielding and timid he is aggressive and a fighter In appearance and stature however Gen Funston is like his mother He is not so slight of figure as she but is a small man He has her expression of feature and he has hands and feet so small that the girls of lola always envied him them gotfronmhe looked with a look of admiration at thequiet blushing little woman Fredl Funston became an insurgent in Cuba leaving New York in the spring of 1890 for that exciting itinerant work The first filibustering expedition was being outfitted Time tug Dauntless was the craft that was to carry arms and men iii the first expedition from the United States to aid the inambi force of Gen Garcia When then Dauntless sailed Pred Funston was abroad After cruising about for several days a landing place was fo ndJttwhen boat was llowered awl r a ur a f c dv Funston clambered down into it the other filibusters decided that landing place did not suit It suited Funston for he went ashore alone and made his way to Garcias head quarters where he was a given a com mission in the mambi army He served with the mauibises for eighteen months lie was wounded by a Mauser ball which pierced his breast He recoveredI from the wound and was again seriously hurt by having his horse fall on him lie was captured by the Spaniards as he was leaving the insurgents He threw away his insurgent passport and declared him self a pacifico Time Spaniards detained hlnlin camp a few days and sent him to Havana where he was enabled to find a ship for the United States On his return to Kansas again he be came a lecturer His adventures in Cuba were the theme of his second lecture His efforts to find success this time were successful Everybody was talking of Cuba when he began this lecture tour His adventures were of such a picturesque character and his information was so full and all of it got at firsthand that he was flooded with offers of engagements He was receiving 100 for each lecture While reaping profits from his talks came the opportunity for more adventure War with Spain came on and he was offereda commission as Colonel of a Kansas regiment Everybody in lola turned out to seethe appearance of Col Fred Funston in his new uniform the first day he got into it and went into town It was the first time he had ever been in the uniform of a United States soldier He had never been a member of a militia company He had often wished to be a soldier but the opportunity had never come till then He had studied tactics and he had sought admission to the academy at West Point When his father was in Congress a vacan cyat West Point was to be filled front that district Isis father instead of recom mending his son who was eager for it had a competitive examination of applicants to select the one standing highest Fred Funston studied to be ready for the examination and when the time came he was away ahead of the other candidates for the appointment but he was so small that his average was reduced in the score and a big lumbering farm boy from down the creek got the place At last he was a soldier awl he was showing his friends lit lola what a volun teer Colonel looked like He was aware that his small figure was not particularly a military one and that folks were not likely to be dazzled by his appearance titJ ll st tsatilpiauu isunifornri How does it feel to wear a uniform like that1 line friend asked sjI dont know how it feels to others but I feelawkward in

engagement around Manila FROM THE PHILIPPINES Charles F Madden of New Albany With the Twenty Second Nebraska Charles P Madden of New Albany now serving in Company G Twenty second Nebraska Infantry in a letter to relatives writes of the situation in the PhilippinesCompany G landed in Manila March 91 and was immediately ordered to the front The first battle lasted four days with a loss of about fifty killed and woundedwhile the Filipinos numbered their victims by the hundreds The insurgents are proud stubborn fighters but the Americans were equalto the occasion They went on bravely and fearlessly taking the towns destroying them as they passed through The only inconvenience we experienced while on the march was the intense heat and scarcity of water many times being sta tioned eight or ten miles from water or shade and then the sufferings were almost unbearable While in the towns our soldiers fared well and every man acted as his own cook Their bill of fare con sisted of pigs chickens and ducks which were killed and eaten by the thousands Company G fought four long battles the last one of which occupied ten days during which time they succeeded in taking the stronghold Our loss as usual was slight twenty men killed and forty wounded while that of the Filhpi nos at this time numbered about two hundred A very sickening scene was presented by the many bodies lying about and bursting in the sun The Catholic churches are numerous in the Philippines The exterior of the buildings have the appearance of old mills but on entering one fsstruck by the beauty and grandeur pf the interior the costly altars statues and large pipe organs many of them surpassing those in the United States The insurgents took refuge in some of the churches and opened fire on the Americans from within but the heavy artillery of the latter demolished the buildings and all their contents When United States volunteers enter a town they take everything they can lay their hands on and carry it

on the reassembling of that body will recommend a bill for the redis tribution of parliamentary seats with the result that the number off members from Ireland and the rural districts of Scotland and England will be reduced thus giving to theIt I cities and boroughs a larger pro portion of the House of Commons with a better chance to control that branch As the House of Lords iis Inherently aristocratic oppostd tall o movements to advance popular rights and interests which mean an eventual deprivation of prestige and privileges if not entire abolition of royalty and hereditary class govern ment this proposed redistribution of Parliamentary seats can have but one objectthe limiting if not reducing to an ineffective minority the popular representation in the House of Commons which of recent years has menaced the stability of the titled aristocracy rule being restrained only by the vote of the House of Lords which in addition to the humiliation of being forced to vote for themselves against popular demands intensify the ill feeling of the people arouse more vehement and active antagonism that is manifested by occasional adoocacy of the limitation of the powers or the entire abolition of the House of Lords as a factor in affairs of government In the past thirty years these contentions between the two branches of Parliament have been frequent each recurrence being more marked and bitter and the obstruction of the House of Lords more manifest and productive of increasing condemnation and radi cal demands by the popular leaders and parties The result of the recent elections in Ireland indicating a solid and united delegation of antiTory representatives the unrest of the tenantry in Scotland and rural dis tricts of England and the persist ent petitions of colonies for modifi cation of existing laws all desiring abrogation of privileges to class and wealth with the possible if not the improbable uniting of all those advocates of reform in British government tend to cause alarm among the aristocracy and nobility who seem to conclude that it may be easier to prevent such a crisis or at least to overcome it by cur tailing its power in legislation through reducing the representa tion from the disaffected sections of the empire The proposition to deprive a por tion of the people of their just rep resentation in the government however shrewd it may be is a confession of weakness as well as a violation of the fundamental principle of modern government and in spite of all protestations to the contrary indicates unmistak ably that the British government dare not trust the people that the reign of Toryism in British affairs is to pass through a struggle for existence and has been compelled to resort to a course both unjust and fraught with danger for the people will not likely submit to being throttled into silence and sub mission to what they believe unjust and oppressive that they will re ject and perhaps resist such sum mary disposition of their petitions for reform and deprivation of their rights can hardly be doubted and r the result the future alone can demonstrateIt without repre sentation that cau8 d the revolt of t the American colonies in 1775 The Queens recommendation is in substance the application of the same injustice to the people of Ireland l parts of Scotland and Eng land Australia Canada and other colonies That they will protest against it is certain If in spite of their protest it is enacted will they stop at protest Perhaps they will and again they way not The times and circumstances for armed resistance to British taxation without representation are more propitious now than in 1775 and the population and resources of the paotesters much greater than the American colonies possessed yet they succeeded in resisting and freeing themselves from the British rule of aristocratic privilege and arbitrary force The drowning of two little boys in the catch basin of a sewer is no surprise to those who have for years noticed these dangerous openings Tlie wonder is that more lives haveI riot been lost These catch basins in many instances are death traps a dread to the parents of small chil dren in the vicinity For years complaint has been made to the city authorities without avail These basins should be so constructed as to prevent accident Until they are the city is liable and a judgment for heavy damages may bring city officials to a realization of their duty though a moneyconsideration will be no recompense to the bereaved parents for the loss of their children Make those catch basins safe Some of our contemporaries are still commenting on Capt Cogh lans remarks and song at a New York banquet and the disposition of the case by the Navy Depart ment Capt Coghlan a gallant naval officer did wrong was called to task for it by his superiors acknowledged in a manly statement he had erred was reprimanded and resumed his duty as a faithful officer should This closes the inci dent Editors should not allow their patriotism or partisanism to get away with them WHITE WOMENS BURDEN There is another side to the matter of the war in the Philippines which shows that the white mans burden is uot con fined to those on the battle line in the far East There are pale women mothers wives sisters sweethearts in Utah Oregon in California in Montana in Washington in Colorado in Idaho in Kansas in Nebraska in many another State who dread to pick up the morning paper lest its news may break their hearts This has been the white womans burden since before Thymbra or Mara thon or Salamis was fought and every advance of the world has been sanctified by womens tears every signal station along the bloody trail of civilization1 has mixed with the cement in its columns the blood that has oozed from the aching hearts of sadbrowed women whose burdens were note the less hard to bear though their outcries were smothered For their sakes for the sake of the gal lant men upon the

ESTATE CONTINUED PROM FIRST PAGE Irish government Does any one imagine that an Irish Parliament would treat the fair places of Ireland as the British Par liament has treated them Happy in the possession of a free Parliament the English people have been most successful in securing respect for the picturesque and the beautiful That noble tract Epping forest has been saved for the Londoner Rights of way over hill and by river have been carefully protected Public opinion which could at any time be turned into positive law prevents private owners acting unreasonably ungenerously to time public In Ireland the opposite rule has prevailed The State has permitted squatters to seize upon and shut out the public from the most beautiful spots on beautiful Doublin bay The banks of the inland rivers have all been seized The public are shut out from the fairest parts of the Liffey time Boyne and other rivers Ireland has two famous places which attract tourists from all parts of the world One of these is the Giants Causeway which is now shut in from mankind by a wall and a toll The other is Killarney lakes also shut in by a wall and a toll A chance of delivering the more beautiful of the two is now offered Will any effort be made by public opinion to avail of it Here is a chance for some rich Irish man or a syndicate of rich Irishmen in America CHARLES A WILSON FOR JUDGE Judge

on Notes on Some of the Lesser Castles or Pete Towers in County Clare He said travelers in Ireland were impressed with the number of Pele Tow ers as they were called in Scotland but grandiloquently

canting Phar isee who would keep on Jertiis of friend ship with God and mammon He is a shrewd lad but the cunningest rogue iis sooner or later discovered John is now In a rage In Quays triumph and his own discomfiture the last glimmer off hope of his ever going to the United States Senate has disappeared Senator Quay did not enter the United States Senate to work for England He voted against the AngloAmerican alliance It is in order for the AngloSaxons to offer their friend Wanamaker a resolution of condolenceIrish World SHIP AJ10YJ It may be from the flush of excitement incidental to banquetting with a lot of land lubbers it may be front the reflected glory of Dewey or it may be from the loss of his sea legs that Capt Coghlan of the Raleigh made a big fool of himself when he arose
