Upon Closing ,Hls 93d Year.
Rome, March 2. The pope, thi
afternoon received in the throne
room the members of the sacred col
lego and tho Roman prelates who pie
sented his holiness with congratul
tions upon tho occasion of his 9S
birthday. Cardinal Oreglla dl Santo
Stefano, tho dean of the sacred col
lege, read a long speech ,to which thti
pontiff formally replies tomorrow
during the exercises attendant upon
the colobratlon of the Jubilee anni
vcrsary of his coronation.
Numerous congratulatory messages
have reached the Vatican, notably
from foreign rulers.
When admonished by his physician
Dr. Lapponi, not to fatigue himself
by the ceremonies of todny and to
morrow, his holiness replied: "These
functions are the chief consolations
of my old age. I wish to enjoy them
How many more of such functions
will tho venerable pontiff participate
in is the question on everyone's Hps
today. The people no longer hazard
a guess, as for nearly 15 years It has
been predicted that each such cere
mony would be his last
It is worth notice thnt out of 203
occupants of the chair of St. Peter,
fewer than half a dozen have retained
it longer than Leo XIII, including the
apostle himself. Since the return of
the papacy from Avignon to Rome,
only one pontiff has attained an age
equal to that of Leo XIII. This was
Paul IV., and should the present pon
tiff live a few months more, he will
have broken all records of longevity

sat down in the vacant seat beside
the sleeping beauty. Presently tho
young woman, half asleep, turned and
laid her head lovingly on the shoul

While on His Way Home .Saturday
Night His Team Ran Away, Throw
ing Him Out and Dragging Him to
David Young Chief, aged about 30,
a full blooded Indian, was last Satur
day night killed by his team running
away while on his way to his home on
the reservation from town.
Young Chief left town about 9
o'clock, tolerably drunk. Some say
he was In tho company of another
Indian, who some how escaped the
wreck and identification as well, and
whose name cannot be learned.
Others say he was alone. About 1
o'clock in the morning Henry Blment,
on his way home from town, discover
ed the body of Young Chief lying by
the side of the road, about a mile and
a half east of town, near the O. R. &

side, and nearly all the clothes were
torn off the body, which was covered
with blood, dirt and bruises. Blment
came at once to town and notified
The body was brought to Baker &

It was examined. It was found that
the right leg was broken near tiie

upper part of the back, between the
shoulders, and heavy contusions at
the base of the skull. Tho Indications
were that after falling or jumping
from the buggy and catching his foot
in the spring, that Young Chief had
been dragged by the running horses
about half a mile before the animals
ran Into the ditch and then tho fence,
and tangled up by the buggy tongue
coining down, stopped.
When found, the horses were still
attached to the buggy, which was
badly wrecked, the top, dashboard
and tongue being smashed to pieces

play. The man had been dragged to
death, undoubtedly. Tho body was
taken in charge by his Indian friends
and relatives yesterday.
The deceased was a Catholic and
will bo burled today in ono of tho
Indian cemeteries on the reservation.
Ho Is said to have been a pretty good
man, practically, his fault being that
he was addicted to liquor. His near
