G p. nil—Byi the fire. the silt ' ting; a fe lest pliysical and mental effort pope has just raised himself to a pg position and insisted upon gct- ont of bed, rctnrning thereto in W ihomcjits. 7 p. ni.—The revival of the pope' is maintaincii. There has hc<?n no re cnrrfence of the delirium. Late thM afternoon he talked with perfect lucid iiy. Rome, July 14. 2:5r> j). m.r-The organs of the pope arc gradually ceasing to i)crform their natural functions. All process of elimination Jias ceased and no more nourishment is taken. Rome, July H. it:!.') a. ni.—A hul lei in just issued says: "There has heiMi no change in Hit' grave condition «)f {he i)ope as slated:last night. I 'ulae !i2,!weak: respiration, .'JO; temi»erature, oil' centigrade." ' Home, July 14. !t:2r. a. m.—The pope has a deliriiun for the first time, lie- fore^ lapsing into the delirium the pope fully realized the extreme gravity of his condition. He asked to see Cardinal Rampolla, who entered the sick'j room. The pope gave the cardinal a hricf whispered message, and also asked ! to receive the benediction which was performed. During the night the poi)e had several attacks of vomiting and lost consciousness and at limes all hope was abandoned. Rome, July 14. 2:15 p. m.—The pope's condition today developed features which the doctors regard as the • most alarming since his illness began. Their judgment was based upon the patient's having brief but frequent re- currliig spells of delirium, "i'cster- day's hallucination was not considered as one'of the same character, that delirium being clearly the effect of nerve, prostration. Today's Aberrations liowcver, convinced ihe doctors that the disease had advanced beyond the nerves and had affected the brain. During his periods of delirium the patient's mind wandered and he muttered incoherently. He insisted that shadows were flilliiig about the room. In hiti lucid monieuis the pope for the first| tipie, showed a complete realization or the gravity of his condition. Ho el ;pecially asked to see Cardinal Ralpolja, whom he gave what was thought might be his final word. The • increasing gravity of the situation is becoming generally known and the Vatican was besieged iluring the morning by an.xious visitors comprising practically all the leading figures in the eccleastical and diplomatic world of Rome.' Towards noon no marked clrauge was reported .but Dr. I.^pponi made a brief visit to his sick daugh-. tcr. This led to the belief that the •doctors did not expect immediate dissolution. Rome, July 14, 30:15.—Thb i pope feeling thai the end is really approaching, has taken much trouble in giving his last instnictions. This morning speaking with effort to his secretary, his holiness repeated the instrucjtious previously given that all presents received by him on the occasion of his jubilee, 1888, which are of greatest value, shall be the property of the Holy See and telling in which drawer would be found the most costly which are to be, personally delivered to his succesor AVith an evident feeling of sadness the pontiff spoke of the sacred objects he had gathered.' Behind a screen in the pope's library are pre- sefttis clven him" on tho occasion of this year's jubilee.

It would ijo a great detriment to the church if I should de stine to niy family tho slightest part of what people send me by denying themselves. As to my personal property I divided that among you long ago." This declaration did' not surprise anyone, it being well known how strong an anti-nepotist Pope Leo has always been. When the pope alluded to his personal portion he meant his patrimony, of which almost two-thirds came iiito his hands thr^)ugh the death of his uncle's brothers. In 18S1. the pope liad all his fortune estimated and divided among his nephews and nieces who were obliged to sign a paper declaring they had received ' all they were entitled to. When the pope's brother died in 1800, Leo informed his relatives that he was keeping all his valuable library intact, leaving 4hem their share in money, obliging them to sign another declaration that Ihoy had received all they could clairtK As the morning progressed the attacks of delirium became accentuated bot.h with regard to the length of the hallucinations and the shortness of his luci<l intervals. The muilerlngs during the delirium wore not alwilys In lelligiblo but they seemed to relate to he history of events of many years ago. At times the pope seemed to again see apparatlons. When his at- cndants try to persuade him to the contrary the pope .insists on indicat- ng the presence of some imaginary hadow which he not only sees but hears. He said: "No, no. don't y:)| see him. Besides he' rattles chairs and other things as he moves." It is evident the pope is making a great effort and straining all his nerves to maintain his calmness and have his will riumph over his mental weakness. He succeeds occasionally but an at- ack of delirium follows this effort and each is stronger than the precoed- ng. The doctors consider a catastro- ohe near. If it is imminent it is lo take place through cardoia paralysis or if further off it is to come through cero- brial anemia, which is the cause of the present delirium. STRONG INTIMATION THAT B'NAI d'RITH PETITION IS SIDETRACKED. MIGHTDISTURiniEGOTIIITIONS MIGHT PROVE EMBARRASSING TO THIS GOVERNMENT IN ITS DEALINGS. r.A JOIN GO IT WILL PASS UPON DEMANbS OF THE MINERS AT PITTSBURG.

Oyster Bay, July 14.—An important conference was held at Sagamore Hill today between the president and representative Jewish citizens of Serrely B'nal B'rith regarding the pelitioq to the Russian government on Kishfneff oiitrages.

Topeka. July 14—The supreme court has just rendered a decision of groat importance Ko secretr fraternal societies. It was In tho case of Powers against the Fraternal Aid Society. In it the court hldd that a fraternal com|)any must stand by the original contract made with the per.son insured. When fraternal companies were first ori;anizeil. they were j )Ut upon a flat rate basis. This was found to be Impracticable later on, and the moat of them chan.gcd to the graduated system. This means a raise of rates. Powers held a contract under the flat rate system in the Fraternal Aid company, and an effort was made vo switch him to the graduated system. He refused to change, and brought suit to test the matter. The court held that the Fraternal Aid jnust comply with its original contract and carrj- his insurance at the flat rate. This will have a bearing on several fraternal societies which have changed from the flat to the graduated rate. POSTMASTER AT LARNED. President Roosevelt Hais Appointed Frank W.
