unchanged. All is quiet in the Vatican.

POPE'S DOCTORS DISAGREE.
Rossoni Says Disease is Cancer, and
Case is Hopeless.
Paris, July 19. A dispatch to the
Petit Journal from Rome says it is
affirmed that the pope is not suffer
ing from pleurisy, but form' cancer
of the pleura, and that Dr. Rossoni
openly declared this at the Academy
of Medicine and at clinics which he
attends daily. An examination of
the liquid drawn from the chest
leaves no doubt as to the nature of
Dr. Rossoni, who is a Freemason
and a friend of Dr. Basselli, Minister
of Commerce and Agriculture, has
not concealed from the latter, ac
cording to the Journal's correspond
ent, that his diagnosis differs from
that of his colleagues, and he consid
ers Pope Leo's case hopeless. Dr.
RossoniTs said further to be unwill
ing to contradict officially the affirma
tions of the other doctors, and only
signs the bulletins giving the general
state of the pope's illness without
specifying the disease from which his
holiness is suffering. He signed

Rome, July 18. One of the most
picturesque ceremonies of this season
in Rome, the procession of the Car

days after the fete day of the . Ma
donna, was much curtailed because of
Pope Leo's condition. Usually a long
indignatton of ranchmen over the
extension of forest reserves in this
state and the action of Superintend
ent Anderson and his deputies has
culminated in the arre3t of Forest

maliciously killing cattle belonging

New York, July 20. The $10,000,-
000 lj-year 5 per cent notes issued
oy tne union racinc are not, as re
ported, for the purpose of making im
provements and betterments on the
Union Pacific or other affiliated lines,
but for the purpose of purchasing
properties and paying for new con
struction. The management is not
prepared at present to disclose where
the new properties or new construct

Every dollar of the new money will be
spent on financing property charge

will recollect the heroic work of Mr.
Kiernon, who, at the last moment,
opened the telegraph key and
"flashed" a bulletin of the occurrence
to the next station. He was swept to
his death by the torrent which fol
lowed the cloudburst, and his help
mate met a similar fate. The officials
of the 0. R. & N. were loth to make
public their act in providing for the
waifs, but such a commendable kind
ness could not pass unnoticed through
the community at large when the
news leaked out.
CENTRAL EAST HAS BIG
THE CROPS OFA LARGE DISTRICT
Milwaukee, July 20. ReDorts of
damage from Saturday's storm are
coming in from many parts of the
state, and are to the effect that the
crops were battered down flat In
many instances it will be impossible
to harvest the grain crops, and the
only recourse left to the farmers will
be to turn their livestock into the
fields for pasturage.
The storms are particularly severe
on Lake Michigan. Thousands of
dollars' worth of damage was wrought
to the Government pier which pro
tects Milwaukee harbor. It is stated
that great piles were uprooted and
tossed about like feathers. Con
tractor Miller says that massive
stones weighing as much as 13 tons
were displaced and tossed across the
breakwater as though they weighed
but a few pounds.
Shade trees were uprooted in manv
sections of Milwaukee, and hundreds
of cellars were flooded because of the
inadequacy of the sewers to carry off
the flood. Two inches of rain fell in
Milwaukee. Madison reports 3.04
inches, Janesville, Broadville and
Chippewa FallsJ report severe storms
and minor railroad washouts.
Haying has commenced in Crook
county and from all reports there will
be as much' hay put up this year as
usual, notwithstanding the reports
earlier in the season that the
and hay crop would be short.

which has been shipped out on the
