at 404 oclock on Monday after noon He had suffered a severe attack pleuropncumonia on July 3 which continued seventeen days His physi cians declare however that his death c thecinevitable decay of tissues that follows r ninetythree years of life As soon as convenient after death his body was placed on a bier beside the bed he had occupied for twentyfive years His ema ciated form was screened by a red damask coverlet A Cardinals scarlet cape was placed about his shoulders and on his head was the PapaNiood of velvet In his folded hands was placed n crucjfix the last thing he looked upon in life His body was guarded during the night by the noble Swiss guard while Franciscans prayed silently about hi bier During his seventeen days of illness Pope Leo suffered excruciating torments Thrice he had to be operated upon in order to be relieved of the serum that had collected on his lungs He was con scions almost to the last and only aq hour before his death he said to Pfo Centra his faithful servant The pain I l suffer is most terrible The cablegrams inform us that eycrj after that although suffering intense physical anguish he raised his enfeebled hand from time to time and murmured benedictions upon his nephews and the Cardinals who knelt around his bedside His last conscious look was directed to ward the ivory crucifix hanging in his chamber Suffering and dying he blessed b MayaPy tiMhin1J j1 On Tuesday the Sacred College of Cardinals assembled to pronounce the Pope officially dead After this function the body of the dead Pope was borne to the small throne room adjoining the death chamber There it was embalmed and clothed in proper garments Later the remains were carried to St Peters Cathedral where be had raised his hand so often in blessing thousands upon thou sands of his people There the body will lie in state until Wednesday of next week During the intervening nine days the funeral ceremonies will continue On the ninth day the body will be borne to the Basilica of St John where it will be consigned to the tomb Dr Lapponi the Popes faithful physician tells us Death occurred through exhaustion although in the last two hours our Holy Father made a supreme effort to gather his energies As his sight was nearly gone he succeeded in recognizing those about him by their voices He made a marvelous display of his energy and his death was really grand It was resigned calm and serene Very few examples can be given of a man of such advanced age after so exhaustive an illness showing such supreme courage in dying As soon as Dr Lapponi saw that the Pope was dead he approached the lighted caudle three times to the mouth of the dead Pontiff in accordance with the traditional ceremonial Then he de clared the Holy Father dead After this he notified Cardinal Oreglia the dean of the Sacred College Cardinal Oreglia at once assumed full control of affairs and directed that the Vatican be cleared of r all persons who had no official business there As dean of the Sacred College Oreglia will continue in charge of affairs until the next Pope is elected Cardinal Oreglia is seventyfour years old and is universally recognized on account of his piety austere life and scholarship After Dr Lapponi had notified Cardi nal Oreglia of the Popes death he in turn notified the other Cardinals In the Vatican who in their turn notified various prelates attendants and newspapermen In less time than it takes to tell it the news had been flashed to the four quar ters of the globe The monarchs of the old world and the Presidents of the ne were informed of the death of the Pope but probably before the heads of the various Governments heard the news the people learned of it through the news papers Everywhere expressions of r gret were heard and in Catholic families prayers were offered for the repose of ibi soul While the news was being flashed ovei the world the people of Rome assembled around the entrance to the Vatican The Italian Government quickly hurried sev eral companies of soldiers to reinforce the Noble Guard The Italian soldien and police maintained order outside while the Noble Guard took charge ot the Interior of the Papal

governed the church so long so faithfully and so well In America the news was received before noon owing to the difference of time between Rome and the new world Mon signor Falconlo the Apostolic Delegate at Washington was unofficially notified by a newspaperman at 1245 oclock At 445 he was officially notified by Cardinal Rampolla the Papal Secretary of State Monsignor Falconio at once cabled a reply in which he expressed the belief that Pope Leos death was received with universal grief in the United States of America The Papal Delegate then sent the following telegram to every Archbishop

LEO DEADPAPACY LIVES Leo XIII is dead The Pope is dead but the Papacy still lives The two hundred and sixtythird successor of St Peter is dead but the Catholic church still lives and flourishes When our Saviour Jesus Christ was on earth he said to Simon Thou art Peter and upon this rock I shall build My church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it St Peter died St Linus his immediate successor died and the other predecessors of Leo XIII died but the Catholic church is marching on and will continue marching on until time is no more Byron sang of the beauties of St Peters Cathedral in Rome OConnell wanted his heart to rest in the Eternal City and it rests there but when St Peters is laid in the dust and Rome exists only as a fable the Papacy will still live More than sixty years ago Lord Macauley poet and historian wrote of the Roman Catholic church in his review of Rankes History of the Popes the following gem of English prose There is not and there never was on this earth work a of human policy so well deserving of exam ination as the Roman Catholic church The history of that church joins together the two great ages of human civilization No other institution is left standing which carries the mind back to the times when the smoke of sacrifiogrose from ithe Pantheon afcd when camelppards and tigers bounded in the Flavinian amphitheatre The proudest royal houses are but of yesterday when compared with the line of Supreme Pontiffs That line we trace back in an unbroken series from the Pope who crowned Napoleon in the nineteenth cen tury to the Pope who crowned Pepin in the eighth and far beyond the timeof Pepin the august dynasty extends until it is lost in the twi light of fable The republic of Venice came next in antiquity But the republic of Venice was t modern when compared to the Papacy and the republic of Venice is gone and the Papacy remains The Papacy remains not in decay not a mere antique but full of life and youthful vigor The Catholic church is sending forth to the farthest ends of the world mission aries as zealous as those who landed in Kent with Augustine and still confronting hostile kings with the same spirit with which she con fronted Attila The number of her children is greater than in any former age Her acquisitions in the New World have more than compensated for what she lost in the Old Her spirituall ascendancy extends over the vast countries which lie Between the plains of the Missouri and Cape Horn countries which a century hence may not improbably contain a population as large as that which now inhabits Europe The members of her communion are certainly not fewer than one hundred and fifty millions and it will be difficult to show that all other Christian sects united amount to one hundred and twenty mil lions Nor do we see any sign which indicates that the term of her long dominion is approaching She saw the commencement of all the governments and of all the ecclesiastical establishments that 11now exist in the world and we feel no assurance that she is not destined to see the end of them all She was great and respected before the Saxon had set foot on Britain adpaiIedthe1Rhhw a o still flourished at Antioch when idols were still worshiped in the temple of Mecca And she may still exist in undiminished vigor when some traveler from New Zealand shall in the midst of a vast solitude take his stand on a broken arch of London bridge to sketch the ruins of St Pauls What Lord Macauley wrote then is true at the present time and although the Pope is dead the Papacy remains THE NEXT POPE There is much of the ridiculous in the reports from Rome concern ing the election of a Pope to suc ceed Leo XIII Candidates com binations influences probabilities and possibilities are discussed as is customary with political campaigns and conventions It is rot pure and simple There are no candi dates for fope therefore no com binations electioneering or other attendant scheming Every Cardi nal is eligible but there will be no candidates nominated no canvassing for votes no pooling of influ ences no dictation nor solicitation from any government faction or individual If there be Cardinals seeking to be Pope they will only verify the saying liThe Cardinal who enters the conclave a Pope comes out a Coidinalbe will not be elected To seek a po ition in the Catholic church merits and universally receives the rebuke of failure to obtain it These reports rom Rome are untrue and absurd but the newspapers are not to blame for publishing them It is their business to give the public the news and the fault lies with the news agencies which are responsible for so much of the unre liable false and foolish dispatches concerning the Catholic church from Rome and elsewhere No one knows not even the Cardinals who will be elected Pope except that it will be one of them which everybody knows They do not discuss such matters The conclave meeting is not only en tirely secret from the outside world but cut off from all communication therewith and the Cardinals sep arated so they can not communi cate with each other There are no nominations each and everyone of the Cardinals being eligible Each votes without knowing how any other votes The willingness or unwillingness of any Cardinal to accept is not considered and in deed the choice often falls upon one not expecting nor desiring the high and responsible position of head of the church Until a vote is taken no Cardinal can know what it will be nor who are candi dates and until a choice is made the conclave ended and the new Pope proclaimed the outside world will know nothing of it It has been so with the election of all the Popes and the same gossip predictions and discussion as are reported today preceded the election only to be proven incorrect by the election of some one wholly unexpected And so it is likely to be again The next Pope will be one of the sixtyfour Cardinals the one whom the requisite major ity vote forbut which one nobody knowsnor has anything on which to base a guess till after he has been elected LABORS WORST ENEMIES The worst and most dangerous element that labor has to contend with is the rampant radicals in its ranks who recognize no right or law or obligation The latest and clearest illustration Iitx the strike and boycott of the Teamsters c f Union against the Kellogg Company in Chicago The teamsters de mands being refused they ordered a strike of the Kellogg teamsters and forbade all teamsters to haul anything for the Kellogg Company But this did not force the Kellogg Company to terms The Teamsters Union notified the railroads not to receive or deliver anything to the Kellogg Company the Electric Light and Power Company not the furnish power and light to the Kellogg Company and the coal companies not to sell coal to the Kellogg Company None of those notifications were complied with Then the Teamsters Union de manded of the railway employes unions that they order their mem bers to strike rather than handle cars carrying Kellogg freight that I the Elestricians Union strike if the Electric Power and Light Company did not cut off the Kellogg plant and the Miners Union refuse to mine coal unless the operators declined to furnish Kellogg with fuel But here the teamsters struck a snag The railway employes have no grievance against the railway companies nor have the electri cians against the electric company nor the miners against the mine operators on the contrary they have been granted their demands entered into agreements and bound themselves by contracts which they observe and propose to carry out Further they consider the rights and welfare of the general public employers merchants workmen and allwho would suffer loss and hardship from such a suspension off railway traffic coal mining and electric light and power as would result from the course urged by the teamsters This would be magi fest injustice to the railway companies the electric company the coal operators their employes and all the people wholly innocent of and utterly powerless to remedy the wrongs of the Kellogg Com pany Besides it would be an un warranjed sand dishonest violation of contract for those unions tto strike against employers against whom they have no grievance Honor and justice must be observed by workmen as well as em ployers The unjust employer iis the only one labor has any conten Lion with and should make war upon The just employer is laborsi ally entitled to every considera tion and protection for of his pros perity labor gets its share all any honest workman seeks and any injury to his interest is an injury to labor But there are unjust workmen as well and these the labor unions must control or repudiate and leave to their fate They are a reproach and detriment to honest labor and they must be restrained or em phatically disowned lest theybring down upon all labor unions the righteous indignation of the public which is all powerful in this coun try MAJE HUGHES The sudden death of Maje 1 Hughes by railroad accident last Sunday shocked the whole com munity for he was universally known and loved The hero of over forty years of fire fighting who never knew fear nor faltered in duty and was often injured was instantly killed with no thought of danger His age neither he nor anyone else knew definitely but judging from his as ociates of younger days he was near threescoreandten Though born and reared a Cath olic he seemed to prefer the big church While not a church goer he was certainly not an unbe liever for with his faults which he made no effort to conceal he was ever respectful and a liberal contributor to religion and charity and would permit no one to speak disrespectfully of the church In his presence He was neverknown to willfully wrong anyone while of his good deeds only he and his God know for he detested vainglory but his charity was unbounded and to all Hi bluff nature geniality and kindness of heart endeared tlotlikep fitp liked you he would do anything for you if he did not know you he gave you the benefit of the doubt and did you a good turn While his negligence of religious practice is not to be commended that is between him and his God but in his life he did less of harm and far more of good for his fellow man than not a few church people For his good deeds he will be missed andmourned C s S SSl Thomas J Cody Is spending a few days at West Baden Springs Miss Manie Hourigan left Tuesday to visit her sister at Asheville N C Mrs Tom Welsh of Seventh street is

Jty MISTAKES That Mon Make in Regard to Their Nolghbord Easy Jobs r Editors Views of the Priests Life and the Priest Ideas How Each Was Given an In sight Into the Others Affairs THEY KNOW MUCH BETTER NOW I It was a red hot daq in July The editor had moved his desk into a draught if there was any draught so as to be as cool as possible while he wrote an editorial on Irelands wrongs A hearty knock at the door and a resonant Conic lotI in reply introduced to view the big goodnatured face and well knit figure of Father Dalton That is not his name but well call him Father Dalton anyhow After the first greetings were over Father Dalton said I came to see about having some picnic tickets print ed This matter was quickly arranged and then the priest said banteringly Oh you editors have a fine time this hot weather You sit here in the cool andwrite pretty nothings while we poor priests are tramping around in the broil ing sunThats all you know about it replied the editor You think you have a hard time but it is not to be compared to the editors task You have a fine cane May job giving picnics bazars etc and raking in the coin Thus one word led to another andeach one thought the other had a snap Before they parted it was arranged that the editor should attend a meeting to be held in a han adjoining Father Daltons church on the evening of the following day He was to note the priests trials and troub leseOn the other hand the priest was to return to the editors office on a convenient day and see what an easy time the editor had and how rapidly rolled into his coffers the golden simoleons Pat Winn the editor was on hand when Father Dalton opened the meeting of the ladles of the congregation next evening After telling the ladies of the congregation that he intended giving a picnic on a certain date Father Dalton said I know what workers you ladies are Women are always more energetic than men and I have called you together to help me in this mighty uudertaking You know there is still a small debt on the church besides the roof needs repairing Now if we are successful in this picnic and I am sure with your hearty cooperation we will be well pay off the debt have the leaks in the roof remedied and have enough left for a handsome new altar Will you help IIVesl To be sure we will chorused the ladies and the editor smiled to think what an easy time Father Dalton had He was smiling too soon This congre gation was made up of IrishAmerican Catholics and GermanAmerican Catho liesall good people and yet each side jealous of the other Now said Father Dalton Mrs Mc Dermott Ill appoint you as Chairman of the committee in charge of the kitchen Up rose Mrs McDermott growing red in the face fanning herself andworking her tongue both ways like an Independent newspaper Huh Kitchen indeed Father Dalton Im sure Im capable of something better than that Tuttitutti trrrr she rattled on so fast that the rest of her reply became unintelligible The good priest looked a little an noyed but addressing another lady said Mrs Hoffenkamp I will ask you to tate charge of the ice cream stand Mrs Hoffenkamp is lone of those who used to work hard in her girlhood days but had married a man well off in a worldly way since which time she continued tp like work That is she liked work so well she could not bear to touch It She was gentle with it herself and when it had to be handled roughly she Always had one or two servants to handle- It So Mrs Hoffenkamp says to Father DaltonThe ice cream stand Ill act as cashier at the ice cream stand but Indeed you cant expect me to dish it out Jrrrr she rattled on Thus Father Dalton was rebuked by half a dozen women in turn until finally the good souls the good old standbys of the congregation accepted the hard jobs and Mrs McDermott Mrs Hoffenkamp- and the other kickers were given posi ions of honorthat is they would have nothing to do but see their names in the Kentucky Irish American as Chairmen of committees The editor said Father Dalton you have not the easy time I thought you bad after all but come in and spend the day with me tomorrow and Ill show you why editors are all wealthy men True to his promise Father Dalton was In early next morning and found the editor busily engaged writing an obituary notice Of course it Vas complimentary to the dead woman and was about half a column in length After the editor read It to him Father Dalton said That is very nice I suppose youth get about flj for that Huh said the editor Her husband owes for two years subscription Ill do well if I get that in two years more Just then Father Guggeuhelmer pastor of a German congregation dropped in After greeting Father Dalton and the editor the newcomer aldIII came to ask you the price for printing 2000 pic nlc tickets He was given the price sod then be- said I thought Id give youa chance be cave you are a Catholic but Brown J n lj across the street a Methodist will give me the tickets for ten cents less Give them to Brown then said the editor and Father Guggenheimer went out Half ah herlater the same rev erend gentleman called up over the tele phone and asked the editor to Iinsert ia notice of his picnic in the next issue of his paper free of charge Of courseth editor was obliging Then a big portly well dressed man walked in He had a roll of manuscript in his hand After being introduced to Father Dalton the visitor saidt Mr Winn I want this in your paper It iis an esAy written by my daughter and delivered recently when she graduated at the Holy Innocents Academy It 1Is something about astronomy and I want you to print It The editor had to smile and appear as if he were pleased Of course he would print it When tlte visitor retired Father Dalton inquired How much will you get for printing that Nothing replied Mr WinneThat man runs a big grocery and I have been trying for years to get him to advertise in my paper He wont do it though The telephone bell rang It was a lady who had sent In anobituary notice about a dead friend She sent it a week after the friends funeral and a better obituary than she had written had been published immediately after the womans death Why didnt you publish my notice of Mrs Browns death Too late eh Well just stop my paperf fIwont have it any more r Father Dalton arose and said Im going home Ive heard enough You thought my life was all picnics and I thought yours was all gold We were both mistaken VERY ATTENTIVE Timothy OLeary Moots With Success as an Insurance Agent Timothy J OLeary the popular local agent of the Equitable Life

Impressions ofporno Meade on a Tourist From This City F Don Horstman Spent Five Days Viewing Points of Interest Visited Germany Switzerland Italy and Paris on Ills Recent Tour AMERICANS ARE HIGHLY RESPECTED F Ben Horstman talked entertainingly to a representative of the Kentucky Irish American this week of his recent trip to Europe and particularly of Rome Air and Mrs Horstman and Mr and Mrs Louis Hugelmeyer left for Europe late in April and were gone twelve weeks As all roads lead to Rome said Mr Horstman after you get to Rome all roads lead to St Peters It is truly wonderful After registering at a hotel the first thing everybody does is to visit St Peters great Cathedral All classes seem irresistibly drawn there On the big square in front of St Peters we bad no trouble in finding a guide who spoke English fluently We were in Rome five days from June 12 to 17 and he was with us every day He knew Rome thoroughly and the points of interest which he led us to were innumerable Of course we wanted to see the Pope In that we were disappointed The Very Rev Father Biederlack S J rector of the German college in Rome to whom we had u letter of introduction from Father Ackerman of this city tried to arrange for an audience for us but the Pope was husbanding his strength for the consistory which was held on June 27 when you remember he created seven new Cardinals However we were at St Peters every day This mammoth Cathedral has been described so often that I will not attempt jt It is grand and impressive beyond description- We were shown through the Vatican museum the apartments occupied by Pope Leo X and the apartments occupied by Leo XIII though we did not get into the room he then occupied Every day we had articles little presents for friends and relatives blessed by the Pope We spent two entire days in the Vatican The catacombs were among the many points of interest that we saw They are on a road outside of Rome The ones we visited are four stories under ground and sixteen miles long in all sixtyfour miles Of course we did not go onetenth of the distance I suppose we visited forty of the 372 churches in the Eternal City and among them was the Basilica of St John Lateran which cost 5000000 and is not yet completed It is here that Pope Leo XIII desired to be buried and his wishes will be complied with We also visited the church built on the spot where St Peter was crucified and another where he was imprisoned In this latter church we were shown the impression of St Peters face In the stone wall and the spring that miraculously appeared in the prison floor when St Peter converted and baptized his jailers We also visited the Church of St Sebastian built in 400 A D It is in a remarkable state of preservation and in one of its chapels is the footprint of the Saviour left in the stone where he stood as he appeared to St Peter and asked Quo vadls Whither goest thou This stone is in the chapel called Domine Quo Vadls We also saw the Pantheon a temple built by the Romans twentyseven years be fore the birth of Christ The grave of Victor Emmanuel is there The Pan theon is four stories high There are no windows in it simply a cupola at the top Raphael the artist was buried there in 1520 The Pantheon now belongs to the Italian Government The Popes carriages were shown us Pope Leo never had a new carriage but used an oldfashioned simple affair that belonged to his predecessor Pius IX One of these carriages cost 4000000 It was built hundreds of years ago and presented to one of the Popes by a very wealthy monarch We saw the Church of St Andrew built on the spot where Julius C eur was asssassinated and the Flavian amphitheater where Christians were fed to wild beasts for the delight and amusement of the Pagans We were taken to the ruins of Caesars palace and the basement is now occupied by cobblers and carpenters shops etc while an Italian prince lives upstairs We were shown through the royal palace but saw neither the King or Queen The Aventine Hill the Villa of the knights of Malta where Julius Caesars tomb is and other things too numerous to men tion we visited and enjoyed- To begin at the beginning we went first to visit my father at Laer Osna I bruck Germany a town of about 1000 Inhabitants There we remained several I weeks The people in Germany all appear to be prosperous We saw no beg gars in Germany France or Switzerland but plenty of them in Italy The Euro I pean railway service is very good From I Lier we went to Cologne and then along the beautiful Rhine We spent sometime at Mayence Frankfort Berlin Munich Stuttgart and Strasburg in Ger many and then went all through Switzer land After Luzerne we entered Italy I and stopped first at Milan then Florence Rome Venice Genoa and then through France to Paris From Paris we returned- to Laer for another two weeks and then to Bremen where we took the Kaiser Wilhelm of the North German Lloyd line and returned to America You could not tell In forty papers all we saw iVe enjoyed the trip and yet we are glad to get home Americana are Well thought pf in Europe and are everywhere treated with tie greatest respect 1 U U A h uuu uuuiOLD
