REBELS IN PARTUGAL
RISE AGAINST RULER
ROYAL FORCES CAPITULATE TO
Warships Bombard The Royal Palace.
King Reported to be in Enemies'
Columbia State, 5th.
The dispatches last night indicate
that revolution has broken out in
Lisbon is in the hands of the re
publicans, the royal standard has
been torn from the palace and the
flag of the revolutionists raised in its
place. Some reports have . it that
King Manuel is a prisoner.
The army and navy have added
their support to transforming the
monarchy into a republic and the
movement which began Tuesday in
the capital is likely to spread through
out the country.
The warships began bombarding
the king's palace at 3 o'clock in the
afternoon with small show of resist
ance and soon the supporters of the
monarchy were forced to capitulate.
It is believed the killing of Prof.
Bombarda, the republican deputy and
anti-clerical, by an army lieutenant
was the direct cause of the rising, al
though ever since King Manuel as.
-cended the throne there have been
plots for the overthrow of the mon
archy and against his life.
The Republican party has been
-planning for control of the govern
ment, and King Manuel, according to
the republicans, has disregardrd the
rights of the people.
As is usual under such conditions,
telegraphic communication with Lis
bon has practically been cut off, but
wireless dispatches from vessels ly
ing off Lisbon have amply confirmed
that the revolution is a serious one.
London, Oct. 5.-According to the
Daily Mail, a revolution broke out
in Lisbon yesterday (Tuesday).
The dispatch adds that King Manuel
is a prisoner; that street fighting has
occurred; that. the warships are bom
barding the palace and that all com
mnunication with the capital is cut.
No Libson dispatches have been re
ceived in London since yesterday af
ternoon, when the Eastern Telegrnph
-company announced the receipt of one
'from its station at Carcavellos, 11
miles from Libson, stating that all
-communication with the capital Was
The Daily Mail prints its repoi t of
the revolution without a date and it
probably is based upon a wireless dis
patch said to have been receivesi by
the Paris Matin, reading:
"A revolution has broken ott ini
I Lisbon and warships are now bom
barding the capital.,. The army and
navy are supporting the revolution
None of the other London morning
newspaper print Libson dispatches or
have any mention of a revolution A
Portuguese merchant in London says
that he received news of a p1l>t in
Libson on Monday.
TO THIS COUNTRT?
Three Possible "Cholera Carriers" IDe
tained in New York-Several
New York, Oct. 4.-The steamship
~Sant' Anna from French and Italian
ports, now detained at quarantine,
had a case of cholera aboard.
The victim, a man in the steerage,
died September 15, and was buried at
sea. Two other cases of intestinal
trouble are under observation. Mean
while the Sant' Anna, carrying 221~
first class cabin passengers, some of'
them prominent Americans, and 1.072
in' the steerage, is held as a possible
"chelera carrier" pending further in
Announcement of the foregoing was
made tonight by Dr. A. H. Doty, health
-officer of tbe port, who has been fight
ing to keep cholera out of this country
during the epidemic abroad. In ad
dition to the Sant' Anna, he has as -a
precaution detained at quarantine the
steamship Moltke, from Genoa and
Naples, and the steamship Virginia.
from Naples. Tomorrow he will hold
a conference with Dr. Walter Wy
-man, surgeon general of the marine
hospital corps. Together they will
map out a campaign of protection.
Dr. Doty's statement discloses not
only that a cholera patient died
aboard the Sant' Anna, but that a.
steerage passenger, a suspicious case
removed from the steamship Ger
mania on September 26, subsequently
died on Swinburn Island. Examina
tion indicated, says Dr. Doty, that
this also was ceholera.
Dr'. Doty's statement was issued
after an examination of the Sant'
h. Anna. which arrived late last night
The ship's surgeons presented a re
port of the death in the steerage
caused by intestinal trouble. Tha
victim died within three days. Dr.
Doty, commenting on the case, says:
"The history of the case indicates
very clearly that the man died of
cholera. No other cases have devel
oped on the voyage, but there are two
cases of intestinal trouble among the
steerage passengers at present. Cul
tures have been taken in these cases
and the bacteriological examination
thus far shows no evidence of chol
era. The final result will be ready
tom. riow morning.
"The inspection and the examina
tion of the Sant' Anna shows that
everything has been done on ship
board to prevent the spread of the
"The Moltke, which arrived last
night from Genoa and Naples, has on
board one suspicious case, a steerage
passenger, but no action will be taken
with the vessel until the result of th3
bacteriological examination is known.
The Sant' Anna is regarded as a pos
sible 'cholera carrier' and in any event
passengers who have been exposed to
the patients will be transferred to
"On September 26 the steamer Ger
mania arrived from Marseilles and
Naples. On board the steamer I
found an unusually good medical re
port. The affidavit of the master and
surgeon showed no death in transit.
no cases of infectious diseases and
no suspicious cases; in fact, there
were no cases of any nature in the
ship's hospitals, and a special report
by the surgeon showed that there
were no intestinal troubles. But for
the past three or four months as an
extreme precaution I have had re
moved from all steamers from Medi
terraneail ports all steerage passeng
ers who have applied for treatment
during the voyage in oredr that ob
scure or irregular cases of cholera
may be detected. - '
"Six of the passengers of the Ger
mania, who were reported on the sur
geon's journal as having applied for
treatment for minor sickness were re
ported well on arrival, but were sent
to Swinburn Island. Two days later
one of the group, Maosin Scobin,
aged 28 years, a Greek, was given
treatment. Twenty-four hours later
the patient was in a condition of col
lapse and died in 12 hours.
"Although the autopsy showed no
evidence of cholera, the examination
of secretions of the intestinal tract
showed the presence of suspicious or
ganism. Specimens were sent to Dr.
W..H. Park of the health department
of this city, and to Dr. Anderson, the
bacteriologist of the United States
marine hospital service. The results
were presented to me yesterday and
indicated that the patient died of
Must be More Careful.
"This is a practical demonstrati n
of what is known as a 'cholera car
rier;' that is, persons who may carry
organisms of the disease without any
symptoms to indicate its presence. In
this case, it was determined that the
extreme precautions were fully jus
tified. As the Germania case gave
practical proof of cholera carriers, it
indicates that in the future additional
measures must be put in force."~
The death of the steerage passen
ger from the Germania did not be
come known until tonight.
The Moltke, a Hamburg-American
liner, has 391 cabin passengers and
988 in the steerage. Those in the
steerage who were exposed to danger
on the Sant' Anna will be sent to.
Swinburn Island and similar precau
tions will be taken in the cases of sus
picious illness on the Moltke. Those
not exposed will probably be allowed
to land tomorrow.
