The new Pope arrived in St. Peters where amidst the excitement he pronounced his first papal Benediction. Many thousands witnessed the historic scene and signified their approval of the Choice of the cardinals by tumultuous cheering. The usual Large assemblage was before St. Peters at about 10 10 a. In. To await the rising of the smoke from the sistine Chapel. Hundreds of carriages stood in the blistering Sun which seemed hotter than Ever. The colonnades were blocked with people but even there the anxious watchers could scarcely escape from the severe heat when the clock struck 11 15 the crowd Lett its shelter and Sto gtd bravely in the Sun in the belief that smoke would appear within a few minutes As it had consistently Given it 3 signal at about this hour since the conclave commenced. A new Pope. Minutes sped on and still no smoke was seen. When the Bells sounded 11 30 the ministers and others left their carriages and joined the watchers on the Steps of the Basilica in Side St Peters Many also were waiting and the suspense brought thousands running from the nearby streets the delay on the fourth morning of the conclave being interpreted to mean that a decision had at length been reached. The troops spread themselves across the Square and nervous anticipation possessed them All. Hundreds of surmises based from Mouth to Mouth. Minutes seemed like hours. I a a. Peters boomed out the three quarters of the hour and there was still no sign. A second later the great Cental windows of St. Peters facing the Piazza swung slowly open. A loud shout arose and All rushed madly to wards the Cathedral. At the open window half a dozen Vatican attendants appeared. Suddenly there broke out into the fierce sunlight a Georgeous Banner bearing a cardinals arms. Kit enforcements of troops crossed the Piazza at double Quick. They closed their ranks and held Hack Many we strained every nerve to get close hot window. L or a minute or so none knew to which lard ins belonged the arms so significantly displayed. Then thu. I r arose that they were but few persons were absolutely sure of their identity. Five Hundred troops lined up around the top of St. Peters Steps thus dividing the great crowd which was increasing every moment into three sections. Announcement made. The tension was soon relieved. Cardinal Marchl in his Cardinal Robes carrying a Large Book and preceded by a glittering Cross appeared at the window. A wild shout went up Cardinal Marchl waved both bands for silence. In a second a solemn hush Ell on the scene broken onily by a Sharp word of command from an officer and the rattle where with the troops brought their rifles to the present. In Clear tones Cardinal Marchl read the preamble with the people below being scarcely Able to sustain themselves until he reached the word a Sarto a when a terrific Roar went up. Those out of hearing of the cardinals voice joined in the acclamation Aud the whole Square became one mass of men and women throwing hats in the air shouting and cheering at the top of their voices. Vainly the Cardinal waived his hand for silence. The Long pent up feelings of those who had watched the conclave for four Days now found an outlet and for some minutes they could not be suppressed. Finally it was quite enough for Cardinal Macchi to proceed and say that the new pontiff had taken the name of Pius x. Then with a Blessing from the crowd the Cardinal disappeared from the window. Those below made a Rush to go into St. Peters and a mad scramble ensued for the Basilica thousands dashed toward the four hugs doors and in spite of their Width a desperate Jam occurred in which women narrowly escaped injury. Like a roaring wave the people swept into St. Peters. Pope plus x has expressed his desire not to dissolve the conclave until this evening.
