I am weaker." Mazzoni said this afternoon: "Not- withslanding his present sickness, the poi)o has a constitution capable of enabling him to recover. i(Tho liqyor taken yesterday from the pieura may gather again and another operation may be necessary but I hope not."

Catastrophe Imminent. Paris, Julj'-8.—A dispatch from Rome says: "The condition of the pope lias become worse since Monday. His weakness is increasing hour by hour. He is intermittenly conscious and a catastrophe is iminineut." A Fainting Fit. London, July S.—A special dispatch from Ilome filed at V:uO p. ni., says the pope had had another fainting fit today, that the action of his heart is very foel)!c and that his condition has again become very critical. Baltimore, July S.—Cardinal Gibbons left hurri<f(Jly for Rome today. Berlin, July S.—A dispatch from Rome says the condition of the poptf has suddenly beconie worse and that Cardinal Seraflno Vannutclli ,grand penitentiary, has been called in to administer absolution inarticulo mortis. The end, it is added.; is immediately impending. Rome, July S.—The improvement after the operation of yestenlay has not assumetl the proi)ortions the doctors wished. \Vhi!e the inflamation of the lungs is decreasing the patient's general condition does not improve. Tlie pontiff is extremely weak ami even chloroform seems to have lost its power to give the sufferer the relief of tranquil rest. Besides, what de ])rcs .>!es tlie pope is the dilllculty he is exjieriencing in breathing. At tinies he aitpears lo be upon the p(}lnt of slraiigulalion and then his bt 'e ^th- iiig gradually bccoineri. weaker until bl .s h «>art npparenily slops.

"Perhaps you did not sleep sufficiently." "No, No,"answcred the pope. "I •was better lasjt night. I am sorry because today should be a day of great work.': I "Surely," Mazzoni replied, his holiness does not intend Uo work?" '"Certainly," answered the pope. "I have so many things to do but I am afraid I Jiave not'the strength." i Both of the doctors then proceedcfrt to convince th<^ iwntiff of the neces- j sity for rest. i "I shall do as you wish," said the t pope, with a'sign resi^iation. i Afterwards fhis holiness expressed a i desire to sit in a chair.'

Rome, July S.—A pehyician's bulletin at 10 o'clock this morning says the night was passed tranquilly enough although the pontiff had no restorative sleep. Seeing Dr. Mazzoni shortly after he awoke the pontiff said: "This is the first time since the beginning of my illness that I have had some really peaceful sleep." Mazzoni replied: "it is the effect of the operation." The pope then observed: "There is one thing your skill cannot accomplish, diminish my ninety- four years." An instance of the strain prevail ing owing to the pope's illness is the case of a lioman who went to the Basilica and shouted: "I am the pope's nephew. The pope is dead. We are all lost; we must all die." He tried to thryw himself from a considerable height but was rescued and taken into custody. Rome. July 8, 1:25 a. m.-^Much significance is attached to an e.xiendcd visit made by Cardinal Gotti, prefect of the i)ropaganda, to the sick room, from which other conspicuous members of the Sacred college are excliiW-. cd by the doctors' orders. Cardinal Gotti's interview lasted twenty minutes, even the doctors and attendants withdrawing and leaving him alone with the pope. This has naturally opened a wide field of speculation. It is even asserted on authority of one cardinal that Pope Leo expressed the hope that in the event of succession falling on Cardinal Gotti he might have the strength to take up and carry forward the great work thus confliled lo him. Just what passed be tween the pontifT and C;irdinal Gotti only they know, but certainly the cur- oiimslances and lengih of the.visit strongly support the view that the poj)e wiiH giving Ilia alleniioii to ihe .iidininlhlnilinii of Ihc ufTuirH-of Ihe (hurcli when he hlnirtelf hna paused iiwuy. .

She Therefore Will Hold Her Present Positions in Manchuria—Japanese Excited. Kim Ch .TU, opposite New Chwansr, Manchuria, July 8.—All proniineii'i Russian officials in. China, Manclniria and Korea are attending a conference at Port Arthur. Among them arc Minister of War Kuropatkin and Admiral Alexieff. The proceedings are enveloped in profound secrecy."

The Russian policy is believed to be to hold its present positions in Manchuria, including New Chwang, and to take no steps to avert hostility with Japan, as it is assured that Japan will fight unaided. The war feeling among the Japanese in North China is intensifying.
