Admiral Benham promised lie would

however, that before making any display
of force on the part of his fleet, ho thought
it only right to first notify the insurgent
admiral of the captains' complaints. Ac
cordingly Benham sent one of his officers
to the Aquidaban with orders to acquaint
Admiral da Gama with the facts in the
case and to ask him to have an end put to
the reckless gunning. When the Ameri

contents of the dispatch received by the

Baying that an engagement had bevn
taken place between the United States

Admiral de Gama had surrendered, said
that he had no doubt that the news wa.3
true. He added that Admiral de Mollo

only a question of a few clays.
In conclusion tho Brazilian minister said
that from the source from winch the nows
was received from Rio regarding the sur
render of Admiral da Gam::, there
cannot be the slightest question as to its
truth, although no official confirmation
has reached him.
A high official of the British foreign

of the dispatches received from Rio an
nouncing the surrender of Admiral da
Garna, repressed the. opinion tiat it
might be true that the rebel admiral had
surrendered to the United States ad

of a great difficulty. In conclusion, the
foreign official said he did not know
what the United States admiral would
do with Admiral da Gama and the in
surgents who surrendered with him.
Admiral Benham. he added, could not
very well surrender tho insurgents to
President Peixoto. who would undoubt

able that tho United States government
would care to assume the care of a mass
of Brazilian insurgents for an indefinite
period. Thus the admiral would seem

doubt that the corrttKnleuee whfcB "
being carried on between hf state aa: !

resentative at Rio de Janeiro is of
ture which indicates 'that the relation
in Rio tie Janeiro twiy arc ix' 'tuning aoi
and more strained, and that a crisfe

at hand. Officials of the .stat.' and nav
department, although thi'y are very reti
cent in regartl to the matter, athott
enough to make this information certain.
Secretary Giv&ham was seen and gave
out the following stattin-.nt: "The
American admiral has no instructions to
act in the capacity of mediator between
the government of Brazil and the insur
gents,. It is not beljeved her tfegtJto Ij.
