The outbreak against the monarch
occurred on Tuesday, a greater por
tion of the army and navy support
ing the revolutionists when an attack
was made upon the capital.
Tile revolution was decided upon
only at 8 o'clock Monday night, at the
urgent Insistence of Admiral Rata. The
government had ordered the cruiser
Don Carlos to leave port the following
clay. This tardy decision prevented
profiting by all the elements favorable
to the revolution. Some of the posi
tions held by the revolutionists in
Lisbon have been reinforced as a pre
caution iigainst possible attack by
troops that have not yet adhered to the
to the republic.
King Manuel II succeeded to the
throne of Portugal following the as
sassination of his King father and
brother, one of the most bloody crimes
in history, and his reign has been a
troubled one. It is generally believed
that the deposed king and the queen
mother will take refuge in some for
eign country and await events.
CALM AFTER 8TORM.
Portugal Again Quiet After Recent
The only evidence of the recent per
turbation are small bodies of troops
stationed in the principal open spaces
of the city, and the passage now and
then of red cross ambulances.
The noticeable outward signs of the
new regime are the presence every
where of the green and red Hag of the
republic and the complete disappear
ance of King Manuel's portrait from
public exhibition. In fact, not a ves
tige is now seen of the picture post
card portraits of the king, or of an)
other member of the royal family.
These have given way to pictures ol
members of the new government and

troops, not in action, but posing for

The most Interesting man in Portu
gill is the new president, Theophlle
Braga, who may be said, without exag
geratlon, to be the father, not only ol
this revolution, but of that in Brazil,
having, by his standing as a professor
in history and philosophy, prepared
the ground for both movements. His
unassuming manners may be inferred
from the fact that Friday night, after
having been elected first president of
Portugal, he returned as usual in a
second-class compartment of the train
to his unpretentious little home In
the suburbs, quietly receiving the con
gratulations of the richest and hum
blest of his friends and deprecatingly
acknowledging the frantic ovations of
his fellow passengers.
Braga particularly desires it to be
understood that the revolution had
no military or personal aim, but like
those in Brazil and Turkey, was pure
ly the utcome of the philosophical
The Braganza dynasty had failed to
keep abreast of modern progressives,
he said and had done nothing to make
the people masters of their own des
tinies. This revolution was aimed to
complete the realization of civil life.
One of the means by which the late
dynasty had endeavored to maintain
its position, he said, was continually
to menace the people with British in
tervention to crush popular sentiment,
as If an ancient alliance between the
two nations was one between dynas
ties and the peoples.

Reductions Made in Europe and the
Far E.e.t in Campaign to In

New York J. I. C. Clarke, through
whom the Standard Oil company
makes its official announcements to
the public, has Issued a statement to
the effect that the company has en
tered on a thoroughly mapped out
campaign to increase the consumption
ol kerosene In European countries and
the lands of the Orient. The first
move in this campaign Is the reduc
tion of the prices of oil In those coun
tries. Mr. Clarke's announcement says
"The Standard Oil company has in
augurated a campaign to Increase the
world's consumption of refined oil.
The level of prices for refined oil to
day in the United States is lower than
at any time during recent years, and
as a direct result of these prices the
consumption of refined oil In this
country is Increasing. The same pol

As Indicated by this sta'ement, the
Standard company began trying out
the policy of lower prices in the
United States, though without an
nouncing that It had in view a cam
paign that would cover the world. In
August the price of refined oil In
tanks was reduced from 6 Vi to 5V4
cents a gallon, and the price of re
fined oil In barrels at the refinery was
cut 1 cent, from 9 to 8 cents a
