says: "It ls reported that the existing Cabinet

Montevideo, Keb. 12.?A dispatch dated nt Rio
Janerio on February n says: "The insurgents
attacked Annacao nt 4 o'clock this morning.
Their launches canted a strong force from
C< nseieao to the landing place in half an hour.
Tbs HtUicklng party was not discovered until
the officers began tp land their men. There was
heavy firing for some time, and then the Gov?
ernment troops retreated, leaving forty men and
ftes "libers captives and six officers and flfty
or sixty men dead on tho field. Between 4:i"
and o o'clock about LOM Government troops
were brought up to the aid of the garrison, and
the combined forces advanced under a heavy
fire from the machine and Krupp guns on Cain
Island. Admiral da Gama called into action
more troops from Conccicao and brought his
launches and the warshln Ltberdade near shore.
The Government troops lost heavily. Their
advance was stopped and ns they had begun to
run short of ammunition, they were soon yield?
ing ground to thc insurgents. The attacking
i ec* pressed forward until within 1,000 yards of
Armacao, but was eventually withdrawn, na tbs
Government troops were constantly receiving re?
inforcements. The Ltberdade and the launches,
aided by the Aquldaban, kept back thc gerri
while the Insurgents were embarking. The
Llberdade was the target of a hot fire, but re?
mained uninjured.
Before noon the Insurgents had left the main?
land, after spiking the guns of the Armacao
battery. The insurgents lost between fifty and
sixty killed and wounded. Among the dead wens
five officers. The Government force ls supposed
to have lost about 150 privates and fifteen ..Ul?
cers. Admiral Da Gama is said to have been
wound In the neck and arm, but neither in
Jury is dangerous.
Had lt not been for the arrival of Government
reinforcements the victory of the insurgents
would have been complete. The superiority of
the enemy's numbers discouraged the insurgent
marines. The Government has strongly rein?
forced the Nlctheroy garrison.

Federation obtained permission to put a |
lutlon before the annual meeting of thc Fi ri
Hon, declaring that no further mischievous
meddling by the House of Lords shall detract
from the work of charter reform which the rep?
resentative house ls authorized to carry out.

tlnuance of a house of hereditary legislators has
become intolerable, and that the House of Lords
has been allowed to exist too long.
The meeting of the National Liberal Federa?
tion in Portsmouth opened to-day. Robert Spence
Watson, the president, said in his Introductory
addrese that he rejo.ced in the recent conduct
of the Peers. They had acted In the manner
best calculated to bring to the front the question,
not of?mending them, but of ending them. The
day for forgiving the Iniquities of the Peers,
even If they should repent, had gone. Loud ap
plause greeted this declaration of principles.
The Liberal and Radical Union, at its meet?
ing t.-day, passed a resolution denying the right
of th.- House of Lo.Ms to return to the country
the bills passed by the House of Common* The
resolution also condemned the institution of the
upper house as a danger to th.- State.

A TH IUD SCHEME OF FRAUD.
TAMMANY VKRSATILITY AT ELECTION
CRIMKS SHOWN.
TRIAL OF DENNIS J. BUCKUbT, ONE OF JUSTICE
divver 'I i.ikiti;nants. IN THE COURT
OF OTEH AND TEUMINER.
Tammany's versatility in election fraud ls be?
ing strikingly exemplified In the cases now on
trial before Judge Barrett in the Court of dyer
and Termlner. The third of these was begun
yesterday, and lt revealed a method of crime
snttrely different from those practised in the two
previous cases. The many trials still to come
will doubtless develop many other novelties In
Schemes tor a dishonest ballot and an unfair
count.
Tho present defendant ls Dennis J. Buckley.
one of Police Jostles Div vet's lieutenants In the
lld Assembly District, He was one of the board
Of Inspectors of the Eighteenth Election Dis?
trict of the lld Assembly District, his associates
being Joseph K. Anderson, Republican, and
Fargal J. Gallagher, Democrat. All three were
Indicted. Assistant District-Attorney Wellman
ha i expected to try Gallagher first, but an?
nounced to Judge Barrett that the witnesses for
the pe..pk- in this (iso had suffered a remark?
able lapse of memory sines they told their stories
to him three weeks ago. Now he was unable to
get them to recollect any of their testimony.
Therefore he first called that of Buckley.
THE DEFENCE OVERRULED.
William V. Howe objected to this change of
plan. Mr. Howe, with Edward F. Walsh, has
been retained to defend Buckley. Doubtless
Tammany leaden WOTS beginning to be alarmed
over the rapid succession of th" convictions ob?
tained by Mr. Wellman of guilty election in
Bpectora It was n.seary to make a strong
fight for Buckley. District-Attorney Fellows had
assigned George Gordon Battle, one of his as
slatanta, to aid Mr. Wellman.
Judge Barrett decided that as all the cases
were on the calendar, the prosecuting attorney
could chose any one he pleased, so the trial of
Buckley Was boffin M at Of th- day was spent
in getting the Jury, which consists of the fol?
lowing: Jacob Ash, clerk, No. TH) Lexlngton-ave.;

THE CASI AGAINST BUCKLEY.
Mr. Wellman's opening address waa brief. He
said that Buckley had allowed the easting of
sn Illegal VOtS by a man unknown to the prose?
cution. S..nie one had voted In the name of
John Reilly In the morning, and when Reilly
came to the polling place In the afternoon, he
had to swear In his vote. Buckley knew Reilly;
In fact, lived in the same house with him, and
therefore must have connived at the illegal vote.
His plan was to have the surplus of votes drawn
out In such a way as to wipe out entirely the
Republican vote.
Bellly testified first. He said he lived at No.
31 Cbery-St last yar, but found the place un?
pleasant after having testified against Buckley
before the Grand Jury. Ills neighbors cast so
many slurs on him that he thought lt better to
move, and Went to No. 4"0 Madlson-st. He had
lived in the former bouse nearly a year. Buck?
ley also lived there Ht.; had known Buckley for
s.ven or eight years. His mother had known
the deft ndant'S |.arents In Ireland. The wit?
ness saw Buckley almost every evening while
they lived In the same house.
< ?n election day. Reilly voted at about 2:30
O'clock As soon as the ballot clerk called out
his name. Hinkley said: "Somebody hits voted in
Reilly's name." The witness did not see him
look Into his registry boob before making this
announcement. lb illy then swore in his vote.
"Was Buckley In the place when you regis?
tered?" Judge Barrett asked.
"Ile was."
"Did b* recognize you when you registered?"
the Jud*?.- further asked.
Yes. slr."
"When you voted, did he recognize you?"
"Weil, not exactly."
It also came out that some one had been sent
into the booth with him, although he was
neither blind nor disabled. Reilly caused some
merriment l.y savin? that he had Intended to
Vote the Democratic ticket, nut on HnrtlnK that
BOOM "'ie had bSSH all..wed to vote In his name,
he put In a Republican ballot.
Mr. Howe's cross-examination related chiefly
to whether Huckle/ had looked Into his book
bef.ire announcing that some one had voted lu
Reilly's name. The witness wobbled a little on
this point. Tho trial will goon to-day.
I'.ter Neville, who was convicted last Wednes?
day, will be sentenced to-morrow.

obstructions. Mrs. Rrahany, of No. Ml South
Cllnton-st, a charwoman at the Art Institute,
was lifted In the air and dashed against tbs Ure
plug at Dearborn and Van Buren sta Two of
her ribs were broken and lt ls believed she ls
Internally Injured, She lay In the snowdrift until
men rushed to her rescue and the polios ambu?
lance took her home. Tho gusts of wind rM'.T
blinding particles of snow frightened men as well
as women from attempting to cross Dearbom-St.
at Van Huren. Civilian., and policemen became
a volunteer brigade, and on the principle that In
union there ls strength they locked arms with
the belated ofBCO-WOrkeiS and cn Bsed In safety.
At the Stock Yards there was a practical sus?
pension of business all the morning. No buyers
were to be seen. Stock trains were late, and
when they dil arrive were covered with gnow.
In the suburbs the storm was felt with rather
more severity than In the heart of the city. At
Evans! >n thc booseg which line Sheridan Drive
along the lake shore caught the full force of the
blizzard. The wind piled the snow up Sgalnst
the front doors, lilied up their Verandas and
made any gening out of .loots almost Impossible
except upon the most urgent necessity.
i'no of the big front windows of. the Leland
Hotel was blown In early this morning a' I
beginning of the storm. The glass was blown
clear across one of the parlors l.v the force of
the wind, but the window was I. trded up be?
fore any serious damage was done hy tb* snow.
The drifted snow and the high wind played
havoc with the mall service. X' arly all the mall
trains wor* late, and from some of them no tid?

r.<ids suffered, both the Eastern and the West?
ern trains being from one to eight hours Int*
At 10 o'clock nothing had been heard from the
Chicago and Alton train due nt 7 o'clock. I. ?? al
delivery of mail was seriously Interrupted.
The driving snow made signals .ci railroad
tracks practically OIllsSS and caused a collision
between two freight trains on the Laka Shore
tracks. Several cars were wrecked.
The storm played havoc with the Lincoln anni?
versary exercises which were held In all the
schools during the afternoon. The attendance
Of pupils was small.

THE STORM IN THIS CITY.
SNOW AND SLEET COME ON THK WINOS
OF A HOWLING CALF.
KEWSTOKE WAS AN fNCOMIORTAni.K CTTY TO
WAUK AROUND IN I 111 UtOAT-OAMOgOl
AT BEA?COLD WEATHER EXPEiTED.
A small Western bli:./..ml came to town yes?
terday with sleet and sn.cv and a cold and
piercing wind. In the morning tho wind sprang
up from the northeast, and, increasing In force
as the div wot,, on, brought threatening, heavy
weather on land and SSS* observer Ininn, In
his nest on top of the Equjtabls Building, knew
from his telegrams from all over the country
thal the storm was coming, and hoisted signals
warning ships not to put to sea. From Kansas,
Missouri, Nebraska and Illinois the wires brought
word of the ?en lily and th" rapid eastward
r".sh of the storm. Tlc Western Union wires
w.ie reported nt night to be working satisfac
torlly to the West and South, though all th*
Wt ?rn wires were constantly bringing In ac?
counts of the storm In the regions through which
they parsed.
By 2 o'clock In the afternoon the snow was
falling rapidly In this --ity and the wind was
driving It about, and swirling it Into drifts at all
tlc sri-et comers. In tho afternoon the horse
cars [int on four horses and the cable-cars kept
their tracks clear by sending otu sweepers. A
large contingent of the army of the unemployed
found work In sweeping the sidewalks. At ii
o'clock the snow had become so fine that when
one walk.-l against the wind It sifted Into his
eyes and made pedestrianism anything but
a pleasure.
Hy 10 o'clock the fine snow had become sleet,
though under foot lt was sloppy and "sposhey."
THE WORST OF THE SEASON SO FAR.
It was the most widespread and thc most
? storm of the winter so far. It was central
over Louisville early In the morning, but lt
rapidly moved to the northeast. There were
really two belts of storm in the country. South
of the Tennessee Valley it was raining heavily,
and nuth of lt it was snowing. The two belts
of storm threatened to unite over New-York.
It was cold In Ncw-Kngland and In the lake
region.
The telephone lines in this city were not inter?
fered with, as most of the wires are underground.
A c i| l wave ls expect I to follow the storm and
then there aili h.. go d sleighing
When the storm came down on the city yester?
day it caught all the horsed sm .nth shod, and
there was much slipping and falling in the
streets, in Chambers-et, near the Court
i. use, no less than five horses fell within two
mini;
Ti,.- temperature rose slightly as the day faded
into night, and al 10:30 o'clock tba Weather Bureau's
official thermometer <>n top of the Kquitable
Building registered -"? di gross above nra and
iher., were Indications of a further rise in tho
course of the night. At ll o'clock three-ouarters
nf a loot of snow- had fallen in this city.
Mr. nunn said last night: "The storm centre
has divided and made two storm centres. One
is off the Middle Atlantic Coast, and one ls In
th" lower lake region. This, of course, keeps up
high winds over all the Intervening country.
The ninds are especially high all along the At?
lantic Coast. At Block Island lt ls blowing
sixty mile-; an hour, and in this city about thirty
sis miles an hour."
Th.- high win.ls are expect.-.1 t i continue ail
to-day, a ri.', the weather to become colder. There
v. ;- <.r::e trouble with the telegraph wires re
ported In the evening from tho Arkansas Valley
and T.-xas. The manager Of the Western Union
operating-room said last nUrht: "We are in fair
W'.st. bul lt is blowing ard snowing all
the way to Washington."
TROUBLE WITH THE WIRES.
Considerable trouble wasexperlerccdln theearly
part of the evening with the wires between this cl ty?
an.! Washing! in, but they worked better later on.
From the West reports came In of the blocking
of railroad trafllc, and to preserve the balance
of the Fastern and Western worlds the cable
brought news of a gr.-at gale howling over the
British IsLs. There ls ii. dnibt but that great
damage was done ti shipping by yesterday's
storm, and that to-day the news of mans- wreck*
will come in. The gale blew on shore and lt was
a fortunate ship that "clawed off shoro" and
- a room last night. The blinding sleet
added another dement of danger to the high
se rs and Acre* gales, and a sailor's lot was not
a happy one. The man on shore was not par?
ti whirly comfortable, but the man at sea was
not only in discomfort hut in peril.
T!i- lndi.atl.ns late last night were that the
sleet would change to rain by daybreak. The
ferry-boats made their trips with difficulty after
night came down, and a trip on one of the lon;,'
romes, such as the Staten Island and South
Brooklyn ferries, was anything but pleasant.
Coming after such a beautiful day as Sunday, the
stormy wcath.-r of yesterday seemed especially
WV) re. A man who could sit before an open fire
yesterday and hear the storm howl around the
corners of Iii-; notlSS W8* comfortable; those who
had t i be out In tho storm were miserable.

of the club fittingly esl orated the birthday of

for him than th* presence of SSJCb a represen?
tative assembly which had mot to eat and drink
to his memory. At. every monti in of Lincoln's
name a chi er went up from c.-.-ry man present,
and lt waa not until midnight that the grand
qualities that made Lincoln dear to his country*
men ceased lo be lauded. At that time the din?
ner came to an end. and the things which had
male lt a SUOOSSS SOCams incidents that will
live In the archives of tho Republican Club of
the City of New-Y ?k.
Besides talking about Lincoln the speakers
made frequent reference to thc Republican party,
Its glorious pust and the bright hopes lt has
for future prosperity. Lemuel E. Cjuigg. the

PRESIDENT WETMORE'* REMARKS.
When the time came for the speeches, Ed?
mund Wetmore called the noisy clubmen ta
order and spake to them as follows:
Gentlemen of thc Republican Club: To one and all
and to our honored guests 1 bid a hearty welcom*
I see there has been no neel of i ?co;eant-at-arr.is
to get a full quorum and the pr sence of detectives
In evening dress is unnecessary ..>r th re ia no mao
h.;-.- 'better than his party." N- >r seed we fear to
exercise our prlvlli gee aa American citizens, and
give free expression to o ir pride in our common
country, f >r there is no authority here to haul down
the American gag.
We mee: to honor the sacred mein irv of Lincoln,
ami to express our devotion to the Republicen party
ri issert Its prlnciplee recall Its history, and de?
rive from Its glorious past renewed faith In its yet
more ul.irons future.
We nave seen a so-called campaign of education
ending with the amastng spectacle of the repudia?
tion hy Its conductors of all tiny professed t? teach.
Protection den maced as robbery, and then adopted
and embraced In ah*pe so twisted and transformed
that it become* robbery indeed. The necessary rev?
enue proclaimed sa the only constitutional measure
of a tariff, and then s tariff proposed that fails to
produce sn adequate revenue, and plunges the coun?
try Into the Krulf of a deficit The patriotic and
spirited diplomacy that protected the American
Miler in chill, ana upheld the honor of the flag, de?
rided and reviled, said theo, tapoo stories aa to the
marines that would aol a*vs found credence even
If fold to marines, a course of .Hplomacy. or rather
if duplicity, entered upon?which, proceeding from
political blunders to political crimes, has culminated
in a failure thai would be ridiculous if lt were not
humiliating, and leaves us in wonder which ta the
more to be condemned, the spirit that dictated the
itt. met, or th- servility that s. -.-ks t.. I ail lisa lt. V.*#
may be tempted lo suv of the Administration, as
lunlus said of Rori Grafton, t;s distinction ta not
that Your Lordship "always tjose wr>ng by design,
but that rou should n.-vcr do right by mistake.'"
Many are the taus, s thal hive been suggested
is th>> sources of our trouble, lt is the alleged
folly of a former Administration. It ls Induatrtal
llsturbanees that are affecting the whole civilised
world; lt Is the recoil fr .ii ? sceasive and feverish
prosperity. Not so. There ls hut one single cause
it all our trouble and tii.it lu the utter and Irre?
trievable incapacity of the Democratic party, a*
it present constituted, to control or administer the
government of the United States, and there is
ait one remedy, lt ls to reman the Ship of State
with Republican* from quarterdeck to forecastle,
ind turning her from th,* breakers, direct her once
igaln along her former course of proaperlty and
nafety. And WS Sill ft* lt Heil :.l! the daj of
ijattle. The cry that then will pass d iwn the ranks
will not be. "Who nv V up the muster rolls'*" but
'Dow* with the Wlison bill." and "Vp with tb*
baener, blasoned on all Its folds with the motto
if American protection." And would y.>u know the
result? Forecast lt from the event of the hatti*
>n the historic ground ~<t Harlem Heights, where
the gallant young volunteer from our own rest
?nent headed the lien ler band that etormed the
ivrv stronghold of our foes, and planted the Re?
publican flag over the ahatterej majorltlee of tb*
XlVth District.
HlrfllOD NEWMAN ON LINCOLN.
Mr. Wetmore then introduced Hlshop Newman*
who responded to the toast. "Abraham Lincoln,"
ile spoke as follows:
Mr. Preside!!: and QsntlSgfSO of the RepuhaV
mu Club of the viiy >f New-York! On thal
