Rio de Janeiro, Dec. 3., via Monte
video, Dec. 7. —Govern ment troope oc
cupied Armacao, which waa abandoned
by the insurgent sailors. Sunday after
noon insurgent launches attempted to
land a force of men at Armacao, under
cover of lire from the guns of the war
ships Trajano, Jupiter and Aquidaban.
They were resisted by the government
soldiers, who kept up a heavy rifle fire.
The Bailors were unable to land and re
tired with a loss of one killed and three
The same day there wae • heavy artil
lery fire from the government Sorts on
Fort Villegaignon. The fire of the lat
ter was well directed and many ehells
buret within tbe walla of Santa Cruz
and Sao Joao. Villegaignon was also bit
by many shells, and one man was killed
and two wounded.
Monday, 800 government soldiers
from the shelter of walls and housee at
Armacao again successfully opposed an
attempt of insurgent Bailors to secure a
landing. The insurgent ships tired npon
Armacao an hour and then tbe parties
in the launches made several attempts
to land. The tire of tbe government
forces was bo heavy that tney were com
pelled to return to the ships. The Bail
ors lost tour killed and five wounded
and heavy caeualities are reported
among tbe troops.
The artillery tire of the forte continued
on Monday. Riflemen on the chore in
front of Santa Lucia fired upon the
gunners at Vallevaignon and wounded
one. Vilievaignon replied with ma
chine guns and rides, killing aud
wounding 20 men.
Tuesday evening the insurgent
launches again attempted to make a
landing at Armacao and were again re
pulsed. Tbe government reporte many
casualties among the troops.
Wednesday the new torpedo boat
Aurora, purchased by Peixoto in Eng
land, was delivered at Pernamlyico. (
The government hae renamed her Gus
tavo San Daio.
Tho Aquidaban weighed anchor on
Thursday at midnight and proceeded
elowly around the harbor. Tne Esper
ance was 400 yards in advance. The
search lighte on Gloria lull and Fort Soa
Joao showed the whole scene distinctly,
Forts Bege, Santa Cruz and Sao Joao
opened tire on the two vessels at 12:30
a.m. The ships made no reply at first.
They passed Fort Bage safely. When
:.breast of Fort Santa Cruz the Fsper
anca opened a heavy tire ou the fort,
and then the Aquidaban, when 700
yards from tho fort, gave it a lull
broadside. The fire on the chips con
tinued with machine and quick-firing
guns until they were abreast of Fort Sac
Joao. Then both opened etarbaard
broadsides. While the ships were pass
ing the forts the insurgent gunnere
in Fort Villevgaignou opened a well
directed fire on Fort Bage and Sao Joao,
bursting seven shells over one search
light and damttgiug it to euch au extent
that the light was stopped. After the
first broadside oi the Aquidaban, heavy
smoke enveloped the ships and the
searchlights were unable to penetrate
it. The Aquidabau did not use her
searchlight in passing the forts.
I visited the Aquidaban before ehe
left aud foultd Mello aud hiß officials
and crew cheerful and confident of ulti
mate success. The Aquidaban has gone
to Desterio to join tne Rspublica and
bring troops north.
Alter clearing the forts, the Aquidaban
threw her Bearchligbt upon the military
school, which shs bombarded half an'
hour, doing great damage to the build
The government fears that Admiral
Concalvee, with the warships T iradentes
and Babia, now at Montev:deo, will
probably join tne insurgents. Admiral
Gama has assumed command of tne in
surgent vessels here.
An insurgent manifesto says the
victory of the insurgents is certain, and
calls upon the Brazilian nation to
remedy, by force of urine, tbe mistakes
made in a moment of temporary mad
ness, November 15, 1889. General
Pago, a strong monarchist, command
ing the government troope in South Sao
I'aulo, is reported in sympathy with the
insurgents. The government is unable
to rind crews for new warships. The
state of siege haa been prolonged until
The Situation Unobangxti at Bio—Will
There Be a Naval Battle?
Washington, Dec 7.—The secretary of
the navy today received the following
Rio db Janeiro, Dec. 7, 1893.
The situation is unchanged eince the
departure oi the Aquidaban. Firing
between the forts and between the in
surgents' vessels and the guns on the
Nietheroy Bide continues daily. The
insurgents have been forced to" anchor
farther from shore. (Signed) ,
The Niciheroy referred to is a town on
the other side of the bay from Rio, and
not the veeeel fitted out in New York.
The opinion prevails at the Brazilian
legation that Meilo's ship Aquidaban is
in a more or lees disabled condition,
owing to the terrific fire she was sub
jected to when she escaped from the
inner harbor. The fact is pointed out
that her machinery or turret equip
ment could hardly escape injury from
the (ire of the many heavy gnus of the
two forts. There is no expectation
among the Brezilian officials that ■
great naval engagement such as has
been predicted will occur when the
America and Nietheroy reach the local
ity of Admiral Mello's ship. It is said
that the Brazilian government would
not be likely to order the two light
cruisers to attempt an engagement with

ENGLAND DON'T CAKE
Boy Many World's Fair Awards Ger
London, Dec. 7. —In the house of
commons, tonight, Robert Hanbury,
member for Preston, asked whether
attention had been called to the very
large proportion of awards won by the
Germans at the world's fair, and wheth
er it wan .a lact ihat Gercaany had ap
pointed a commercial attache in Amer
ica, and whether the government
intended to appoint a eimilar attache in
America. Sir Edward Grey replied
that the attention of the government
had not been previously called to the
proportion of awarda made to Germane
at the world's fair, and he added the
government did not know whether Ger
many had or hod not appointed a
commercial attache in America. In
any case, said Sir Edward, the British
government did not intend to appoint
such a representative.

By the Associated Press.
Washington, Dec. 7.—Some memberß
of the Semite have been asking them
eelvee what the eenate will do in caee
Cleveland should fail to take notice of
the request for information concerning
Hawaii, but most of those epoken to
upon the eubject say it ieuot a probable
contingency. They admit, however,
that it would not eurpriee them if
Cleveland declined to transmit farther
information until after the next steamer
shall arrive from Honolulu.
TUB INFORMATION READY.
It ia not certain yet what course the
executive will take in response to the
resolution of tbe eenate calling for in
formation on the Hawaiian episode,
information will be given, but whether
it will be a formal response to the
senate resolution, or a special message
from the president, which will take no
note of the resolution, has not yet been
determined. The information ia pre
pared and can be sent in at any time.
It waa apparently put in shape to ac
company the presidents forthcoming
special message before the resolution
passed the senate yesterday.
There ie an excellent authority for
saying Minister Willie' present orders
are to employ no force of arms. It ie
probable that the instructions by
the Corwin are for him to pro
ceed in his efforts to persuade
the provisional government to allow
Liliuokalani to be vectored. It is inti
mated from a reeponoible source that
tbe ex-queen declines to go back on the
throne, unless by consent of the provis
ional government leaders or a guarantee
of protection by the Cnited States.
THURSTON LEAVES WASHINGTON.
Hawaiian Minister Thurston left here
today for Honolulu. Beiore leaving he
called on Gresham. He was not eei>t qutot
tbe country, and doee not go at the sug
gestion of the secretary of state, but
goes of hia own accord to advise and
consult with those he repreeente.
At the Hawaiian legation, Secretary
Hastings eaid no significance was to be
attached to the minister's departure.
He had not left word that he was going
to Honolulu, and Hastings doubted if the
minister would go beyond San Francisco,
where the Hawaiiana are now arranging
their exhibit at the midwinter exposi
tion, though perhape he would continue
on to Honolulu. Thurston's mother
and aon remain in Waehington.
CONGRESS MUST SETTLE IT.
Prominent members of the house com
mittee on foreign aff'trs evidently ex
pect congreaß to be called upon Boon to
decide the Hawaiian question. Chair
man McCreary yesterday had an extend
ed interview with the president, and it is
supposed matters relating to Hawaii
were under discussion. McCreary would
say nothing about the conference but
from auggeslions h« mado it ie evident
he expected congresa would deal
with the matter. A member of the
committee said the president would not
think of using force while congresa waa
in Besßion, as that would be an act of
THE l'RenAllLE CAUSE.
There has bein a theory advanced
that after iiearing again from Minister
Willis, and learning poseitively that
the queen cannot be restored, except
by the use of United States
troops, tbe president will present to
congress the case of the queen as a
wronged monarch whose government
has been overthrown by this govern
ment, und assert that it is no v. the duty
of thu United Slates to restore the for
mer condition, even by using force. This
is the idea that has been advanced by
the friends of the administration.
THE HUT RESOLUTIONS,
Tbere will be great opposition in the
house committee ou foreign affairs to
the resolutions of Hitt of Illinois, on tho
ground that it would not be right in view
of a further promised communication
from the executive ou the subject, for
the house to give expression to the
Bentiments contained in the Hitt reso
lutions. Hitt will make every effort to
secure a favorable report from
the committee on his resolution,
but as it will take at least three Danio
cratic votes to bring about euch a result,
itie doubtful if ho will be successful.

A Brutal Father Fiendishly Beats a
Sacramknto, Dec. 7 —This morning in
Justice Newton's court, in Washington,
Charles P. Brown pleaded guilty to the
charge of battery upon his live-tnonthE
o!d baby, because it disturbed him by
crying. The child was beaten in a moat
fiendish manner, its face being badly
bruised and its body black and blue.
The people of the village are highly in
censed arid on ly lack a leader to mete out
severe punishment to Brown. The de
fendant's wife pleaded for him, saying:
"1 conld not exist without his Btioport."
Justice Newton lined Brown |sv, with
the alternative of serving 50 days in

New York, Dec. 7.—The Wor'd'a die

Depew's description of a visit to the
pope. When Depew mentioned the
famous encyclical on the relations of
capital and labor, his holiness etraight
ened up with all the vigor of a man of
50, his eyes flashed, he grasped the arms
of his chair and leaned forward ac though
intensely interested. "That encyclical,"
he declared, "was no new thing in the
Catholic church, It laid down no new
doctrines; it simply reaffirmed and en
forced what had always been the doc
trine and policy of tbe church ac to the
relations of rich and poor, employer and
employee, the right of property. The
right of man to retain and enjoy that
which he has earned by the sweat of hiß
brow, or by genera! fortune, has never
been queetioned by the church and
never will be."

War Is Inevitable.
Copyrighted, 1S;13, by tho Associated Press.
London, D»e. 7.—An important dis
patch from Vienna, which tho Times
printed thia morning, set forth that the
Russian government had declared it
imperative that the Killa, an arm of
the Danube, he made navigable; the
object of which demand was to secure
the exemption of the Killa branch from
the control of the Danube commission,
and served to attract renewed attention
to the situation of affairs in Europe,
which would need only a spark to kindle
into flame. That the various countries
are fully alive to the difficulties ahead,
there can be no doubt, and numerous
incidents have come to light within the
past few days which indicate that all
tbe powere are making preparations to
meet any emergency.
In connection with these recent de
velopments, the statement made today,
on the authority of the Westminster
Gazette, that five new battleships, a flret
class cruiser and a number of smaller
vessels have been ordered to augment
tbe British navy, is not without signi
Tbe Globe tonight, commenting on
the Times dispatch, asks if we are on
the eve of a revival of the state of things
produced by tbe Crimean war, and says
Russia's demand that tbe Kilia be made
navigable ie the most alarming of the
ugly portents of trouble which have
besn numerous of late.
At the request of the Associated Press
correepondent, Poultnen Bigelow, whose
intimate relations with the highest offi
cials of Germany is well known, and
who has just returned to London after'a
stay of several months in Germany,
wrote the following on tbe situation iv
"Russia wants Constantinople, and is
preparing to take it. Russia cannot
succeed in accomplishing thia desire
without first fighting Austria. She can
not fight Austria without lighting Ger
many at the same time. Russia wants
the mouth of the Dr«ube, a desire as
strango as if France should wish to re
occupy Louieiana. Russia, therefore,
has one enemy particularly in mind,
that is Germany. In this hatred of Ger
many was born the comical friendship
between Russia and France, for France
means to get back Alsace-Lorraine.
That Franco is thirsting for war admits
of scant doubt to those who saw the de
lirious behavior of the French people in
welcoming the Russian sailors at Toulon
and Fans; nor is there any doubt that
she is now better fitted for war than ehe
has ever been. Russia sounded France
and wae well satisfied with the result.
When war io declared tho two are one,
army and navy.
"The Russian government has now
massed all its active army west of Mos
cow and the great bulk in Poland ; iB
persecuting the German language and
Lutheran religion iv the Baltic prov
inces, aud is fanning, rather than allay
ing, the prevailing hatred of Germany.
Russia h.is been obseiving great
secrecy of late in regard to its move
ments on railways, borne times several
days bave passed when all traffic on
roads hue been stopped, save govern
ment. Oddly enough the money ehe
has been spending upon forts aud stores
hap nearly all been expended against
the German Irpntjer. She knowe sire
must eettle with Germany before she
can get the Bosporus. The German
emperor, meanwhile, iB awake and
knows what ie passing about him. but
knows also that he has much to lose
and itttle to gain by a euccessful cam
paign. German business men feel this
too, and that the next war will be
largely devoted to pulling chestnuts out
of the tire for England."
