are so expensive that it would be Im

women from the right to vote, which
is against "all the principles of Jus

fied considering the "ameliorated cul

the country, and, Indeed, her super

favorable to grant the vote to the fair

Lisbon. The general situation

as becoming serious, both the fi

country being decidedly unsatisfac

At the beginning not only the repuh-
i licans, but a good many monarchists
welcomed the advent of a new re
gime; but the republican leaders
promised a great deal more than they
have carried out. The law of separa
tion of church and state offended the
religious sentiments of many people,
while the Increased taxes on capital
i and the landlords' law alienated the '
O' sympathies of the wealthy classes.
! The civil administration of the coun
CJitry has by no means been satisfac-
; tory. many capable and. intellectual
Q j men being thrust aside, this being due
Situ the fact that they had not become
republicans before the revolution. At
first mistakes were expected, and al
imost everyone was desirous of giving
I the republic a fair chance, but since
jthe republican government took office
little has been done to effect reforms,
j Since Oct. 5, J910, the annual expendi
ture has increased, while the Tevenue
has considerably decreased.
Parliamentary debates have become
I abortive, deputies merely making long
j speeches which are frantically cheer
i ed by their supporters, but few laws
are passed. A great number of pro
; jeets are presented and then referred
back to committees for study, after
which no more is heard of'them. Party
warfare and self-interest, which were
the chief causes of the destruction of
the monarchy, have Already begua to
disunite the republican regime.
Senor Almeida, the chief of the
conservative republicans, seeing the
danger of the situation, has recon
structed his party and instituted a new
program, the chief feature of which is
the remodeling of the law of separa
tion of church and state, alterations In
taxation, a new electoral law and
other liberal (schemes, the idea being
to attract all the moderately disposed
republicans and monarchists. It is
generally considered more than doubt
ful whether he will have any success,
as the greater part of the country has
lost faith in all politicians. Moreover,
the opposition of the more advanced
republicans Is too great to permit of
any headway In this direction.
This condition of affairs reacts on
commerce. Traae is now considerably
paralyzed, while the lack of money is
great In Portugal the bulk of trade
is effected on credit, the banks dis
counting term drafts. During the last
few months, bankers, due to the lack
of funds, have reduced such facilities
to one-quarter of the previous amount,
while the Bank of Portugal, which
was the principal bank assisting trade,
has practically stopped all private dis
counts, the cash it has in hand being
insufficient to supply the constant de
mand for the government's depleted
coffers. The -state now possesses
nearly 90 percent of the total of the
issue of the Bank of Portugal. The
circulation of notes has increased
steadily (from the time of the revolu
tion of 1910 without a concomitant
increase in the metallic reserve. The
Seating debt has also been augument-
ed. The actual deficit amounts to
about ten millions yearly. People are
posing the question of what will be
come of Portugal in the event of
political or financial upheaval.
This unsettled condition of Portugal
ia attracting the attention of Europe,
and fears are openly expressed in re
sponsible quarters that European In
tervention may become necessary. The
recent general strike in Portugal,
which started as a labor movement
pure and simple, was seized upon by
anarchists and monarchists agitators
as a means of furthering their move
ments. The government, therefore,
found it jiecessary to declare a gener
al state of siege and to pour thous
ands of troops through the streets of
Lisbon and Oporto. Over 1,500 lead
ers of the movement were arrested
and imprisoned upon warships in the
harbor of Lisbon.
Under this stern repression the
strike gradually died, hut there is still
left the undercurrent of uneasiness,
the agitation among the friends of the
strikers who are still 'in prison, and
more important than these, the declar
ed intention of the monarchists really
to attempt the restoration.
One of the problems of the new re
public of Portugal is that of smug
glers. Smuggling goes on incessantly
over the Spanish frontier and it has
lately increased In audacity. A large
number of smugglers have been ar
rested and imprisoned. A daring at
tempt at the tescape of smugglers oc
curred recently at the prison of "Vi-
anna -Do Castello. About 90 prisoners,
including brigands and smugglers,
with the connivance of jailers', dug a
tunnel from the prison and escaped
to the beach, where they seized a large
fishing boat. After throwing 16 of
the crew overboard they took to the
open sea. A gun boat, which had been
notified of the escape, started in pur
suit and engaged the sailing boat in a
combat, finally 'sinking it. Eighty of
the prisoners were taken off by the
gun boat, but 10 perished.
Pecently the authorities learned
that extensive smuggling was going
on near Chuxusca and sent a big force
of cavalry to watch. At midnight a
band of smugglers w-as sighted emerg
ing from the forest. The cavalry pur
sued them and finally came up to
them as they were entering a tunnel.
To their astonishment the troops
found themselves soon In the interior
of an abandoned monastery. Brought
to bay, the smugglers, who numbered
22 and who were armed with old guns,
pistols and stilettos, made a fierce re
sistance. They refused to surrender,
whereupon the troops poured in a vol
ley. The fight then became general,
but the smugglers finally surrendered
after five of them had been killed and
nine wounded. The soldiers lost two
killed and six wounded.
April, the Month
of "Water Heaters
With the coming; of April comes our announcement relative
to Water Heaters. We are striving to make this April a ban
ner one as far as Water Heaters are concerned.
With this end in view we purchased a carload of the famous
Lion Gas Water Heaters. We ore going to give to the people
of Rock Island the benefits we derived from buying in a
large quantity. We are going to sell these
Gas Water Heaters
during the month of April only, for $12.00 each. This price
includes connections all ready for use.
Any woman who desires cleanliness, comfort and conven
ience will be interested in Lion Water Heaters. Some people
have the mistaken idea that a Lion Water Heater simply eats
up the gas. A Lion Water Heater will heat a 30 gallon tank
of water in 40 minutes for 3 cents worth of gas.
