ROME, July 18, Midnight. The pop lies
tonight In a state of coma, and there are
grave doubts in the minds of his doctors
whether he -will ever completely emerge.
His immediate dissolution seems only to
be diverted by the action of his heart.
His pulse, though weak, continues steady.
Shortly before midnight, Dr. Iiapponl
said to the correspondent of the Associat
"The pope at the present moment Is In
a state or. coma, which may oe called a
condition preceding the last agony, the
duration of which It Is impossible to fore
cast, although everything leads to the be
lief that his condition cannot last

"To be .more exact, he Is still in a state
of torpor and stupor, from which, how
ever, he arouses .occasionally, when he
hears sharp .sounds, as, for instance, the
Insistent voice of one pf his familiars
calling loudly to blm. Left alone, he tc-
lapses immediately into a condition of tor

sleep, continuing to have forebodings that
he is being abandoned by his Valet, Cen
tra, and myself. These are the symptoms
of Incipient cerebral anemia and general
exhaustion. He can no longer turn In his
bed without assistance, and is being kept
alive by artificial stimulants. During the
last 23 hours he has had two injections of
camphorated oil, three of caffeine and
two of hypodermics of salt water, besides

and coma, he believed the pope would

Italian Government Ready.
Both the Italian government and the
authorities of the Vatican have made final
preparations for the pope's death. The
government is rigidly Indorsing all tele
grams and telephonic communications be
tween Italy and tho rest of the continent.
At this hour, but few people remain at
the Vatican. Dr. MazzonI and Dr. Ros
sonl and the cardinals have gone to their
homes to await the last urgent summons.
Doctors Kept Some Secrets.
The medical aspect of the pope's case
is exciting much comment. .One authority
having opportunities of knowing the prl
vate history and the treatment of the
case declares that a third operation for
the removal of the pleura has actually
been performed, but has not been made
public. In order to avoid Increasing the
public apprehension. It is also stated In
the same reliable quarter that Dr. Lap
ponl and Dr. MazzonI have made a writ
ten statement before a notary giving the
exact details of the pope's case, and that
copies of these statements have been de
posited with Cardinal Rampolla and Mon
slgnore Cagiano de Azevedo, the major
domo of his holiness. Tho purposes of
this statement Is to answer possible sub
sequent medical criticisms of the treat
ment of the case. It Is understood that
the doctors have not been as frank in
their bulletins as they personally desired
to be, details of some features of the case
being withheld at the earnest request of
the Vatican authorities. Their formal
statement Is expected to clear up the en-
tire medical history of the caso.
STEADILY DECLINES ALL DAY.
Pope's Torpor Only Broken for Com
BHBlOR-ueatk Question of Hoars.
ROME, July 19. Today each hour has
added to the gravity of the reports from
the sickroom of the pontiff, until all
Rome has waited almost breathlessly, in
momentary expectation of the announce
ment of his death. Since the state of de
pression which seized upon the pope dur
Ing the latter part of tho night, his con
dltion had gone steadily downward, and
throughout the day the most Intense
anxiety has prevailed.
For the first time also the weather was
strongly against him. The blistering heat
fell on the city, and the great piazza of
St. Peter's took up the fierce sun and
threw it back against the Vatican until it
was like a fiery furnace. Every light
breeze that prevailed came -in from the
south. This seriously added to the dis
comfiture of the patient.
He had spent a restless night, sleeping
for only short intervals, and. even then
his sleep was agitated. Dr. iiapponl re
mained, in the sickroe-m throughout the
night. At the orafg conference the
physicians noted -a distinct change for the
worse, particularly in the accelerated
pulse, which had risen to 9S, after re
maining for atany days between SS and
Relapses Into Homeless Torpor.
The distinguished patient appeared to
have lost all of that vitality which he
had hitherto so remarkably maintained.

there was hardly any, revival from this
continued state of torpor, and the doctors
remained continuously in attendance.
Their night bulletin announced for the
first time that their patient had been in
state of coma, which, they said, had
been almost uninterrupted during the day.
How long this condition would contlnuo
they did not venture to say.
As Dr. Lapponl came from the sickroom
a 6 o'clock this evening for a brief breath
of fresh air, he summed up the steady
decline In the patient's condition by say

prolonged many hours."
Alarm, la Holy City.
Meantime the critical condition of tho
pontiff had caused intense excitement
throughout the city. "When the state of
coma first occurred, the doctors formally
communicated the gravity of the condi
tion of his holiness to Cardinal Rampolla,
who in turn advised the cardinals of. the
sacred college. At the same time the
general public became aware of the
alarming change in the pope's condition,
and the entrance to the Vatican was soon
thronged with dignitaries of the church
and members of the dlplomatio cJrps,
making anxious inquiries. Twice rumors
of the death of the pontiff had gained
circulation. The cardinals and diplomats.

referee and his stop-watch had settled
the controversy In favor of McGuIre, and
Paul DeHass had been beaten by 30
seconds, the crowd' rushed for the gang
plank and hurried home. They .had com
pleted one of tho most enjoyable excur-

unaertaKen ny .roruana s puduc men.
The affair was one of those Ideal ex
cursions that had nothing to mar lis
success. There were no inconveniences.
no tiresome waits, and no disappoint
ments In the service, either aboard the
boat and train or at Goldendale. When
It was all over the excursionists agreed
that the officials of the Columbia River
& Northern deserved to hear all the com
pllments that had been given them dur
ing the trip and had earned the rounds
of cheers that were - called for as the
Gatzert came Into the harbor.
Less than half a dozen members of the
Portland party had ever been In Golden
dale and many of them had only a general
Idea olthe country. It was easy enough
to find the town on the map and a refer
ence to Bradstreets told something of
the standing of Its business men. Sta
tistics showed the crop values, but little
was known by actual experience. Now
there Is a party of Portland business
men who know this city Is in close touch
with the Klickitat country and that it is
good to enjoy such relations.
The trip was undertaken by the direc
tors of the Columbia River & "Northern
railroad to show the stockholders of the
company and their friends the system
that had opened up a new country and the
territory that was tributary to the line.
Not all who had been Invited to accom
pany the excursionists could leave their
business. This Is a circumstance of
which they will be sorry when they hear,
the details of the trip.
General Manager H. C Campbell of
the railroad system had announced a
schedule upon which the excursion was
to run. It was a very pretty schedule
to look upon and one that attested the
fact that the new road was an actuality.
One of the first things a new railroad sys
tem does is to promulgate a time card,
and the Columbia River & Northern fell
right In with the system established long
ago. Tho special boat and the special
train kept near enough to the schedule
to jshOT? that it could havo been made If
necessary, but as the excursionists had
preferences of their own they ran upon
their own time.
If the Gatzert had not waited for some
of the delinquents to appear she would
have left Portland at 11 P. JL and would
have reached Lyle a few minutes earlier.
Then If tender to the engine of the spe
cial train had not left tho track the
start from Lyle would have been made
on time, and tho excursionists would not
have had the opportunity to meet the peo
pie and see the business men of the com
munity. Then If Skookum and his family
had not been waiting beside the track
and the special had not stopped to take
the Indian family aboard Goldendale
would have been reached on the minute.
If the party had not been kept until 1
A. M. at a banquet the train would have
Btarted at 8 A. II. as first announced. If
the Gatzert hod not stopped to take wood
unexpectedly the return to Portland
would have been 30 minutes earlier than
it was and a new winner would have ap
peared for the guessing contest. As it
was, however, the Gatzert returned an
hour earlier than scheduled.
Scnedale Changes at Gaests' Wishes.
This serves to lllustrate'how thoroughly
the system of the Columbia River &
Northern was placed at -the disposal of
the Portland business men. The company
gave the excursionists the advantage 'of
every request arid altered schedules to ac
icommodate Its' guests. Each change in
time meant a new delight for the party.
and it was no .wonder that the crowd re
turned believing a trip to Goldendale Is
one of the Journeys every one should uut
The run up the Columbia to Goldendale
was made during the night, the boat
touching at Vancouver after leaving Port
land long enough to pick up the Twenty-
sixth Battery's baseball team. It was
hard. In the morning, to decide between
the luxury of the staterooms provided
the excursionists and the scenery of the
river, with a waiting- breakfast thrown la
to help turn the. scales in favor of the
scenery. Later- on there was no Inde
cision, and no member of the party would
have hesitated a moment In favor o
sleeping while the Columbia River &
Northern had something to eat or some
thing to see waiting.
Manager Campbell had planned to allow
but half an hour for Lyle, but he did
not have all the planning to do. A
switchman threw a switch too quickly
and the wheels of the tender dropped off
the track. For half an hour the excur
sionists gathered about and told the train
men and shop crew how to lift the tender
back onto the rails. The railroad men
had Ideas at variance with, all the sug
gestions until Paul de Has3 ventured a
new opinion, and A. H. DeVers carried the
words to the working trainmen. They
took up the Idea, and the tender moved
back where It belonged. After that the
operating department took its orders from
the excursionist, though Manager Camp
bell approved them before they reached

A state of lawlessness that beggars de
scription now prevails In northwest
Wyoming, as a result of which all law
and order seem to have been abolished.
From President L. L. Moffett, of the
Montana & Wyoming Telephone com
pany, who is now making a tour of In
spection of his company's lines, come tho
news of a bloody lynching which occurred
at Basin, Wyo., Just across the Wyo
ming line, early this morning and of an
appeal for help from Sheriff Fenton, of,
Big HOrn County, who has arrested a
number of prominent cattlemen near
Thermopolls and has appealed to the
Governor of Wyoming for assistance o
the militia In getting his prisoners to
the Basin Jail.
The lynching this morning, resulted in
the killing. of two condemned murderers
and also In the shooting of a deputy sher
iff, C. E. Pierce, who died Instantly. Tho
murderers were Jim Gorman, who killed
his brother about a year ago and ran off
with his brother's wife, and a prisoner
named Walters, a traveling man who
killed a widow named Hoover at Ther
mopolls Hot Springs two years ago be
cause she refused to marry him.
Flight and Capture.
It was reported to Sheriff Fenton lost
Wednesday morning that a mob was
coming up to Basin along the Big Horn
river from Hlattsvllle and Tenslip for
the purpose of lynching Gorman and
Walters. As a measure of precaution
the Sheriff took those two men and a
horsethlef out of the Jail and secreted
them In a gully near town 'under guard
of Deputy Sheriffs Felix Alston and C
Gorman, who has exceptionally small
hands, managed to slip his handcuffs
and made his escape. Deputy Pierce
fired one shot at the fugitive as he dis
appeared In the brush, but the bullet went
wild. Gorman swam the Big Horn river
and made for the mountains. A posse
of seven men quickly organized and Gor

morning on Trapper creek, about 50 miles
Murderers and Deputy Murdered.
Last evening about thirty men, un
masked and in perfect order, rode up
the east bank of the Big Horn, dis
mounted, tethered their horses and com
pelled the ferryman to carry them across
the river. They made no demonstration
until they entered Basin, when five shots
were fired as a warning. The mob pro
ceeded at once to the building which la
courthouse and Jail combined and fired a
volley into the jail. Deputy Pierce and
Special Deputy George S. Meade wero
guarding he prisoners at the time. One
bullet grazed Meade's shoulder and en
tered Pierce's heart, killing him Instant
ly. Members of the mob then quickly
procured telephone poles and battered the
Jail doors down. The first came to Wal
ters, who was crouched on his cot plte
ously begging for mercy. No needless
torture was resorted to. Walters was
shot Instantly. The mob next found Gor
man, whose body was pierced by Uvo
bullets and was left presumably dead.
He lingered., however, until 8 o'clock
this morning, when he died.
Cattlemen on WarpatJi.
A still more alarming state of affairs is
reported from the vicinity of Thermop

the range feud that ha3 been bitterly
waged, a sheepman, Bennlck was killed
by cattlemen. Sheriff Fenton, it Is al
leged, has captured the murderers, who
are all prominent cattlemen and whose
names have been withheld on account of
threats made against him. Sheriff Fen
