AMNESTY FAVORED BY
VOTE OF THE SENATE
Message Sent to President Fon

sion by Government
DREADNOUGHT MENACES
PALACE AT THE CAPITAL
RIO DE JANEIRO. Nov. 24. — The
mutineers In the navy have sent
a message to the government of-
fering to surrender. The senate has
unanimously approved a proposition for
amnesty to the rebels.
• The chamber of deputies adjourned
until tomorrow with the question of
amnesty for the routineers under dis
cussion. It is thought that amnesty
will be granted by a small majority.
The battleship Fao Paolo and the
scout ship Bah la have gone outside the
bay, but the battleship Minas Geraes
has taken up a position in the bay off
the government palace.
According to the Journal, President
Fonseca is disposed to countersign the
amnesty as soon as both houses of par
liament shall have voted it.
Crew Kills Officers
About 10 o'clock at night. November
22. as Captain Neves, commanding the
battleship Minas Geraos. came back
from dinner on board the French
training ship Duguay Trouin he heard
a violent uproar and a fusillade. It
was the crew of his vessel, who had
revolted.
Captain Neves, two other officers and
several sailors who offered resistance
were killed and one officer was mor
tally wounded. The mutinous crew
meanwhile shouted "Long live lib
erty.*'
The insurrectionary movement then
broke out on board the other new Bra
-.zillan Dreadnought, the battleship Sao
Paulo, and on the scout ship Bahla.
All the officers having been landed, a
plain sailor of the first class named
Jean Candido took command of th~
squadron.
Coal Depot Seized
Ammunition was provided, provisions
were requisitioned and a coal depot on
the Isle of Vienna was taken. Vessels
srere prevented from transporting coal
destined for the French steamer, At -
lantique and the English steamer Oro
nosa.
The mutineers sent a message by
radiograph to President Fonseca set
ting forth their claims for an imme
diate abolition of corporal punishment
on board ship, an increase in their pay,
according- to the program submitted to
congress some time ago, and diminu
tion of the work with which they are
burdened by reason of the maintenance
of incomplete crews.
The statement added that a bombard
ment of the city and of the other ships
in the harbor would follow the refusal
of the demands.
Bombardment of Capital
The government refrained from re
plying to the ultimatum of the muti
neers and a moderately severe fire was
soon opened upon the city. This con
tinued at intervals all night. The in
habitants of Rio Janeiro were thrown
into confusion.
On the morning of November 23 there
was further firing upon the city by the
mutineers, the shots coming at infre
quent Intervals. .Little damage resulted.
T\'hen the mutineers took control of
the warships the vessels steamed around
the bay, all of them flying the. red flag
of revolt- The torpedo boat destroyers
remained loyal and anchored in the
farthest corner of the bay.
At 7 o'clock on the morning of No
vember 23 the Minas Geraos, the San
Paulo, the Bahia and the battleship
Marshal Florlana crossed the bar and
fired on the fortress, which refrained
from responding.
Women and Children Killed
Once outside the bar the squadron put
about and again entered the bay, took
up a position opposite the city and fired
the big guns from all quarters of the
ships. A shot from a small caliber gun
entered a house on Castello hill In the
center of the city, killing, two children
and a woman. \
During the day shots were directed
at the Marine arsenal. About 1 o'clock
in the afternoon a small boat flying a
wbW flag went alongside the Sao
Paulo. It carried Deputy; Carvalho.. a
retired naval -officer, who desired to talk
with the mutineers.
A little later the deputy returned to
shore and made a report to the chamber
of deputies. V which had 'been convened
in special session to deal with the re
volt. The entire membership !of the
chamber declared its support of the
government.
Senator Ruy Barbossa in the senate,
in the name of the opposition, made
similar announcement of that body's
• upport of theg oyernment."

Woman in Trance
Entombed as Dead,
But Is Revived
[Special Ditpatch to The Call]
CLEVELAND, 0.,: Nov. 24. —
Mrs. Anna Hubbell of Aurora, 0.,
was burled as dead and "resur
rected," according to a daughter
of Mrs. Hubbell, who lives In
Cleveland.
Mrs. Hubbell. who is 65 years
old and seemingly In good health,
would n/>t discuss the matter to
day further than to admit that
she was very ill several weeks
ago, but recovered suddenly. Mrs.
Etta Winfleld of this city, daugh
ter of Mrs. Hubbell, says that her
mother was taken suddenly ill
about three weeks 'ago and was
thought to have died. She says
she knew that former members
of the family on her mother's
side had been subject to trances,
and she told the undertaker her
suspicions that Mrs. Hubbell was
merely In a trance. She advised
him to refrain from embalming
the body and asked that her
mother be placed in a vault with
the casket lid open.
This, according to Mrs. Win
field, was done. The woman •was
laid away in a vault at the Au
rora cemetery about 2 o'clock in
the afternoon. Late that night
the sexton of the cemetery, who
had been told of the daughter's
suspicion, went to the vault and
discovered that the body had
moved in the casket He hastily
summoned aid and had the
woman taken to a physician, who
worked over her for several
hours, finally bringing- her back
to life or out of her trance, for
such it was pronounced.
FREAK OF NATURE
FLOODS VALLEY
Lake Inside Alaska Glacier
Breaks Loose and Sweeps
Miners' Cabins Away
CORDOVA, Alaska, Nov. 25. — A dis
astrous flood, caused by the loosening
of the waters of an internal lake in
Bering glacier, swept the Bering river
valley today, devastating a large sec
tion of the country, southwest of the
great Ice field. Many miners' cabins
were swept away and grave fears are
entertained for the lives of the occu
pants. .
Icebergs of gigantic size were torn
loose from the glacier and dumped
Into the river. Swept before the huge
rush of water, which caused the Ber
ing river to rise 10 feet in four hours,
these great masses of irr carried every
thing before them in their rush to the
sea. Cabins near the river were car
ried out by the rush of water and then
ground to pieces by the Ice.
The roar of the flood and the grind
ing and crashing of the enormous ice
bergs could 1 be heard six miles away.
Grave fears are entertained for the
safety of K. Smith and and H. S. Wise,
prospectors who were last seen In the
flooded region.
Searching parties have been ordered
to go over the devastated section.
Bering Glacier is east of Katalla and
is about 30 miles inland from Con
troller bay/Gulf of Alaska. It is the
source of the Bering river, which 'flows
through the famous coal field of that
name.
This is the second peculiar glacial
action of this nature to occur in this
part of Alaska within recent years.
Great damage was done two years ago
when a similar internal lake broke
from Miles glacier, in the Copper river
valley, sweeping away several miles
of newly laid track of the Copper
River railroad.

[Special Dispatch to The Call]
"WASHINGTON, Nov. 24. — If the com
ingr session of congress is not a record
breaker in the number of important
bills enacted into law;s it will not be
the fault of President Taft. Despite
the prediction of Representative Mann
of ; Illinois that ll):tle*.would •be accom
plished at the approaching session, the
president intends j to, "do ?his utmost to,
force > through . an ambitious program.
-..VTbat ~ tfiere wiU "be" republican har-;
mony in, the coming is brie: of
the greatest desires of President Taft.
To attain this eridhe is rwlili'ng that
all past differences shall be forgotten.
He will meet the so7.calJed insurgents
on a friendly, -basis ;^ and will admit
them to the White House : councils^ *
Amendments for Tariff
Talk of an., extra session has _been
ended by the. announcement .that. Taft
intends^to submit certain tariff sched
ules at * the short session.
The. president- has made It plain that
he does . not intend ,,to .call an extra
session enta-iling great expense to" the
government. ' • .
Employes qn Capitol hill are jubilant
over this announcement. >An extra
session would bring the democrats into
control soon after March 4, and all the'
republican employes would at once be 1
'replaced 'by democrats. Since there'
will.be no extra session the republlc-i
ans Will continue to * hold their jobs^;
until December, 1911. . \
Republican ""Whip" Dwight saw the
president today: and had a. long talk
with him. Taft impressed on him the
necessity for .real • action at the short
session. It was pointed out to Dwight
that the best kind of politics was to
keep faith with the country; to fulfill
all the promises of the republican plat
form and then; let the- public judge be
tween the republican and ' democratic
parties in 1912. .
Proposals for Legislation
In. the regular message, now being
drafted, the. president will ask for; an
appropriation for fortfying the Panama
canal and will renew his demand for
ship subsidy legislation.
Taft will not even; make, up his mind
as to the appointees to the supreme
court until December 5. Associate Jus
tice Hughes, it is understood, is still in
the lead for chief Justice.

SAN ANTONIO, Tex., Nov. 24.—
Americans reaching here from
Puebla and Gomez Palacio tell of
massacres. In Puebla the rioters were
surrounded in a large hall and given
no opportunity to surrender. A with
ering fire was poured in on them,
through the walls and windows of the
house until not one was left alive.
More than 50 women and children are
included among the dead.
At Gomez Palacio practically the
same scene was enacted. The rioters
were lured in the market house and
the soldiers continued to fire until all
were dead.- Orders have gone out to
the Mexican soldiers to^ effect no cap
tures, but to shoot on sight any Mexi
can found in arms against the govern
ment. As a result the fleeing rioters
are being hunted down like wild ani
mals.
The government, it Is said, has of.
fered $10,000 reward . for Francisco I.
Madero, dead or alive, and the Intima
tion has gone out that the reward will
be more cheerfully paid for his corpse
than for his person.
According to" official advjees received
here by Enrique Ornelas, Mexican con
sul at San Antonio, conditions of tran
quillity have been practically restored
hi Mexico.
A commercial wire has been open all
day from Mexico and messages sent by
the American' businessmen from all
sections of Mexico are to the effect that
there is no cause for alarm.
