attendance would dwindle to'nothing.
The autumnal frosts will blight the
foliage of tho (lowers. Weather stains
will soil tho white walls of the build

The fair was plnnn-' i, constructed and
dedicated for a scene of summer
beauty, biightucss and fascination.
It should not fadu out lileo a comet re
ceding on a wintry horizon. It should
go out In a blaze of glory, like the
summer sun nt its setting, leaving a
trail of splendor In tho sky."

Wasiiinoto.v, Sept 33. Pension
Commissioner Kochrcu has submitted
uis annual report to tho secretary ot
the interior. Tho number of pension
ers on the rolls of the bureau Is MO,
012, a net increase of 8D,DU during tho
past year. During the year SI, 7 15
claims for increase ot pension and
31,090 for additional pnnsion under
tho act of June 27, 18110 wero allowed.
In the samo time 115,321 claims
for pension nml for increase were
rejected. The claims pending consid
eration July 7 numbered 711,150. The
amount of money paid for pensions
during tho year was $15(1,710, 1 17. The
balance at tho close of tho year was
S2.437..I71. The appropriation for tho
next fiscal year, Commissioner Koch
rcn states, will be ample, und tho es
timates for tho fiscal year 1805
amount to 8102,0:11,550. Referring to
the estimates for tho fiscal year of
1S'.I5, Commissioner Kochrcu says:
"If these wero based wholly on tho
experience of former years and tho
capacity of tho force of the bureau to
haudlu cases through tbo formal
stages of examination to allowance,
t lie result would bo a much larger es
timate. Hut 1895 is thirty fivo years

from Kio de Janeiro sent tills morning
as received in London at noon.
When tho message was sent Rio was
still in the hands ot the government
forces, but Its surrender was
momentarily expected. Tho rebel

toward thu admiral's Uae-sliiu. where
the signal to begin liring was expected
at any moment to be displayed. This

The action of the rebels eaiised tho

inhabitants ran about the streets in
confusion and dlsmuy, gathering at
street corners and denouncing Pelx

that today will decide tho fate of Rio
and that by night Km will either have
