Rome, July 9. 1:15 p. m.—By special favor, the correspondent of the Associated Pres^ here was allowed this morning to visit the papal apartment where he had an interview on the situation with a personage who is bel ter informed than any one else, but who, from motives easily understood, does not wish his name mentioned. He said:" '•The first iwsilivc sign of amelio- ralilon in the pope's c(jndition since lie was ,taken ill was seen this morning The august patient'rcSkted well enough during part of the night. It was not the sleep of protration or collap.ie, but peaceful and natufal, so muqh sc that the benefit is quite visible this morning. His temperature is 9C, whicli is quite normal for the ponti.T considering his age and present condition. What is imiKjrtant is thai his temperature, never rose aI>ove normal and never even approached a fevOrish state". He now has a slight cough and his kidneys are still deranged biit the secretion of urine, though very scarce is somewhat augmented, which proves that his heart is stronger and his circulation better, as demonstrated by complete disappearance of citanosis, so that his liands have again taken their natural aspect.

Laj»- poni and Dr. Maz/oni, who wish to de- feud themselves from tlie attacks on their diagnosis of the case, but it is interesting as the first document-giving exact data from a medical point of view The account runs as follows: "On the morning of Tuesday, June 30, I'ope Leo went for a drive in the Vatican gardens. On returning he declared that i he had benefited by the resh air and wished to repeat the drive. The iiopc said he felt no need of a medical visit and informed Dr. I..ap- poni not to go and see liim. "During the night of Wednesday, July 1, Pope Leo complained of intestinal disturbances, which he attributed to constipation. Notwithstanding, he went into the Vatican gardens and returned to his apartments .again feeling benefited for hii- drive. "On Thursday he declared that he felt well, but Dr. Lapponi, wishing tc know personally the nature of his disturbances complained of, ppent the night: at the Vatican. DuVing the night the pope was sleeplesi^ and restless. "On Friday, Dr. Lapponi examined the jHjpe and ound iiuhnouary inflama- tion Jin the right of the thorax be twecn the interior and middle lobes He informed Cardinal Rampolla and began the treatment which he thought right on Saturday. During the day the infammarion spread. Dr. Lapponi, worried, desired to have Pope Leo seen by Dr. Mazzoni, who since the operation of 1899, has visited the IKjntiff occasionally, replacing Dr. Papponi during his illness with ap pendicitis. "On Sunday Dr. Mazzoni went to the Vatican and examined the patient with Dr. Lapponi, confirming ihd latter's diagnosis, viz: An inflammatory process in the lung, which was defined in the medical bulletin as pul monary hepatization. Tho original treatment was continued, consisting of supporting the strength of the heart and general condition of tho patient ; "No. noticeable change was observed until Monday evening.
