NO LATE NEWS FROM RIO,
BUT THE REPORT DISCREDITED ON
ALL SIDES.
NOTHING KNOWN FOR CERTAIN.
Sensational and Startling Reports
Still in Circulation— Peixoto's
Chief Source of Revenue Cut
Off, Which Leaves Him in a
Bad Shape — Minister Men
donca Has No News.
(Copyright, 1893, by the Associated Press.!
Pekxambuco, Dec. 23.— The report
that Kio de Janeiro lias been captured
by the rebels lias not beeu continued,
but the most startling reports are still
in circulation here.* It is an
nounced here in a dispatch from Kio
de Janeiro that Admiral tie Gama and
the insurgent war vessels are off Cobras
island and that they have succeeded in
stopping the collection of the teve
nues from the custom house, which
have, up to the present, been
paid to President Peixoto. There seems
to be some serious hitch connected with
the departure of Lieut. John Conway,
third watch officer of the i.icttieroy,
and of the sixty insurgents who are
thoroughly posted upon the movements
of Peixoto's new cruisers, and it is cer
tain that the Aquidaban and her
consorts are expected here almost at
any moment.
WANT PROTECTION.
Mello Is Not Over-Particular in
His Bombardment.
Washington, Dec. 23.— The following
Is a dispatch received by the state de
partment today:
Rio, Dec. 22.— T0 Secretary of State,
Washington: American masters each
of them hold Brazilian Pacific dock
permit. The docks specified are con
tiguous points. Protection from shore
fire promised by government. Instruct
Picking to anchor off that point for
convenience until question equitably
settled. Insurgents make lines of fire
anywhere to suit their purpose, thereby
Indefinitely blocking neutral commerce
without previous notice. Towns.
Mr. Towns is the United States ex
tonstil general to Brazil. His dispatch
is construed to indicate that the regular
government of Brazil has granted a
permit to shipping to land and receive
cargoes at certain wharves lying near
Bach other, and tiiat our consul general
want our naval forces to see that Mello
and De Gamma respect these permits
and do not fire along these lines. It is
not regarded as likely the instructions
asked will be given. The point which
the consul general urges is the same as I
that contained in the petition of
American vessel masters in Rio
received several days ago. The
cablegram was transmitted to the navy
department by the state department for
its instruction, and without any request
to comply with the suggestions. The
navy department is awaiting advices
from Capt. Picking. With discretion
vested in (.'apt. Picking, and with a
United States minister on the ground,
no action will be taken on the repre
sentations of the consul general until
our other representatives are heard
from, it will be seen that the dispatch
is a complaint against the insurgents
and a request to intervene against them
in behalf of neutral commerce. The
government's fire is from the shore,
and it has promised protection for the
continuous line of docks from its fire.
But Mello's forces are firing without
regard to security on the docks. It
seems to be considered doubtful in the
state department whether the govern
ment would be warranted in intervening
to prevent the insurgents from fixing
their line of fire, It is questionable
whether the rights of neutral commerce
include a right to have a landing place
kept safe in a besieged city.
BRAZILIAN TRADERS
Meet and Declare pThey Are Duly
Protected.
Baltimore, Dec. 23.— A meeting of
merchants engaged in the Brazilian
tiade was held today. C. Morton Stew
art was called to the chair and Robert
Taylor was appointed secretary. Among
the resolutions adopted is the following:
"The Brazilian conflict has existed for
a long time. Without pretending to be
categorically correct in every detail,
we can proclaim with satisfaction and
thankfulness that the American navy
has afforded to American interests all
the protection required, and that all ob
struction to trade has been minimized
by the course adopted by this govern
ment." 'fliis message from Secretary
of State Gresham was read:
"Washington, Dec. 22.— C. Morton
Stewart & Co.. Baltimore: Answering
your telegram of 21st, this government
is taking steps to ascertain the exact
military and commercial situation at
Rio and other Brazilian points in order
to instruct naval commanders to protect
legitimate American interests.
"W. Q. Gresham."
No News for Two Days.
Washington, Dec. 22. — Minister
Mendonca, of Brazil, has received no
cable advices confirmatory or otherwise
of Mello's capture of Rio today.
Two days have now passed with
out any cable communication be
tween the Brazilian authorities and the
minister. Seuor Mendonca is serenely
confident, however, that the reports of
Mello's triumph are unfounded. If
Mello had actually triumphed there
would be an end to Peixoto's censorship
of press dispatches, and Mello would be
the first to desire that the news of his
victory be sent to the world.

in the center four pits in the shape of a
government mound, the cake being so
designated -in gilt letters. Above the
cakes floated the stars and stripes.
After the company was assembled the
host read the decision in full and was
freely applauded. There were turkeys
and chickens in abundance and there
was enthusiastic toasting and much joy.

Quit the Organization— Grand

[ Clarendon hall, in this city, this even
rug,- to consider and" decide' on the- ad
visability of abandoning the Knights cf
Labor and joining the United Garment
Workers of America, which organization
is affiliated with the American Federa
tion of Labor. Over COO members were
present, and it was unanimously de
cided to renounce the Knights of Labor.
It is stated that this step will speedily
cause the downfall of the Knights of
Labor, as the garment workers are said
to be the backbone of that organization.
John Lawrence, of Clothing Cutters'
Union No. 2853, Knights of Labor, was
chairman. Samuel Aulter, of the same
union, was secretary. The chairman
recapitulated the work done by the har
-1 mony committee. "Our proposals." he
said, "went before the Knights of Labor
executive board, but they rejected them.
The same -proposals were sent to the
American Federation of Labor, and
they not only adopted them, but prom
ised us all the support in their power."
A long manifesto, attacking the Knights
of Labor and setting forth reasons for
the severance of the relations existing
heretofore between them, is issued by
the , garment workers. It alleges dis
satisfaction with Grand Master Sover

COULDN'T SCARE HIM.
Nerve of an Express Messenger
Foils Bobbers.
St. Louis, Mo., Dec. 23.— With the
most serious intent in the world, eight
men attempted tonight to rob the New
Orleans express of the Mobile & Ohio
system, which leaves this city at 8:35 p.
in. Boarding the train at Pittsburgh
crossing, and bearing a frowning niein,
and, presumably, empty pockets,, with,
the exception of well-loaded revolvers,
the eight would-be imitators of Jim
Cum mines clustered about the express
car's forward end and the engine's
tender. As the. train bowled along
they put their plans on . the • way to
execution by attempting.. to frighten
Messenger Robertson, of the Southern
Express company, into admitting them
into his sacred precincts. - He did not
scare worth a cent, and ras the train
slowed ud for the Forest Lawn, 111.,
-stop." tlie robbers slid olf into the
darkness and disappeared from view.
At Forest Lawn the train officers noti
fied their chief, and also set the local
llawkshaws upon the trail, but, with
descriptions entirely lacking, putsuit is
weil nigh hopeless.

Bold Attempt to Rob a Missouri
Bank.
Greenridge. Mo., Dec. 23. —A daring
but unsuccessful attempt was made to
rob the Farmers, and Traders' bank of
this place at about 11 :45 o'clock this
morning. Cashier E. E. Durand, who
was alone in the bank, was suddenly
confounded to find himself looking into
a 44-calib»r Colts revolver, held by a
man masked with a red bandana hand
kerchief. The robbers' only remark
was: "Hand over the money, and be
quick about it." Instead of complying,
the cashier dropped under the counter
and made his way on his hands and
knees to a rear door. Hurriedly he gave
the alarm. Returning, the cashier
found the roboer ransacking papers and
books. He was again covered, out
dodged behind a partition wall, and the
thief beat a hasty retreat through the
frontdoor. By the time the "robber
reached the street fifty men were hur
rying in search of the robber. He
walked deliberately down the main
street, pistol in hand, mounted his horse
and leisurely galloped away. In ten
minutes fifty men were in pursuit, and
in less than two. hours the fugitive was '
captured and brought back. He re
fuses to give his name.
