Loxdox, Nov. tl. On account of the
strict guard kept by the Brazilian govern
ment over the telegraph and cable lines.
it is almost impossible to obtain reliable
news as to the exact state of the country.
It is now generally admitted, however.
that there is no room for further doubt
that the province of Rio Grande de Sul
has declared its independence, and as it is
reported that this independent territory
includes about 50,003 fighting Germans
among its population, the revolution
there is undoubtedly serious.
Report of Fighting Confirmed.
The report reached here yesterday that
there had been fighting in the province of
Rio Grande de Sul. This report has since
been confirmed. The trouble referred to
is said to have its center at Port Alcgre,
the capital of Kio Grande de Sul, but the
telegraph wires leading from the supposed
scene of the fighting having been cut.
some t ikiie must elapse before definite news
gets even so far as Kio de Janeiro. Mer
chants and others in this city interested
in tbe finances or trade of Brazil are doing
their utmost to obtain some kmd of in
formation from their agents in Brazil, but
their efforts do not seem to be meeting
witti macb success.
Pernambnco Cnts Adrift.
Late yesterday afternoon the announce
ment was made that at least another
province Pernambuco had revolted
against the dictation of Marshal da Fou-
seca and had declared itself independent
of the government as now constituted.
By the same source it became known that
at least two other provinces were on the
verge of declaring their independence.
and rumor also bad it that the "restora
tion" party held sway in one of the re
volted provinces. This report, which
comes from Babia. may have its origin in
imperial! st circles, but be that how it
may, the situation of "flairs would seem
to indicate a long and bloody civil war in
the near future, the overthrow of Da
Fonseca's dictatorship and the establish
ment in Brazil of a number of separate
republics somewhat similar to those of
- Fonseca Willing to Resign.
Great excitement prevails at Kio de Ja
neiro and throughout Brazil. It was re
ported here last night that Marshal da
ronseca has been informed that he is suf
fering from a disease which must soon
cause bis ueatn, ana tnat be bas an
nounced his willingness to resign the
reins of power. The German population of
Kio Grand de Sul is reported to be organiz
ing into armed bodies of men on the plan
of the Dutch settlers of South Africa, And
to be determined to defend the independ
ence of theii new state.
Rumor of Serious Conflict.
Tbe troops under the command of Mar
shal da ronseca are said to have been or
dered to move upon Kio Grande de SaL
This report, however, is not believed here.
it is understood that the dictator has
been warned by his most t rut. ted admir
ers to do everytbing possible to avoid
bloodshed. A still later rumor bas it that
there has been a conflict with serious loss
of life, between the supporters of tbe gov
ernment and the colonists who have just
declared their independence.
THE TENNESSEE TROUBLES.
Talk of Calling for I'nited State. Troops
A Fight Imminent.
NASHVILLE, Nov. 1L Matters between
the rebellious miners and the state of
Tennessee are almost at a standstill, the
governor asserting that he will rebuild
the stockades and the miners daring him
to do it. Governor Buchanan realizes the
responsibility and is much alarmed at the
aspect affairs have taken. He has been in
communication with the secretary of war
for some days past, and has asked aid of
the United States if the worst comes.
A Bad Outlook for Peace.
The general opinion in the south is that
a serious fight can not be averted. Gover
nor Buchanan is said to fear his handful
of troops will not be able to withstand
the 0,000 miners of East Tennessee, who
would be reinforced by 20,000 others from
Pennsylvania, Ohio, Kentucky, Alabama
and Virginia, and would probably wipe
out tbe available militia at bis command
aud then override the whole state in reck

A Jewelry Ilrumnitr Leaves His Sachets
Daytos.O., Nov. 1L R. E. Kramig,
traveling man in tbe employ of a Cincin
nati jewelry firm, was yesterday the vic
tim of a robbery. Shortly after noon Mr
Kramig placed his sachels in a Cincin
nati, Hamilton and Dayton passenger
train which leaves here at 12:35, and went
to the station restaurant for lunch. Dur
ing his temporary absence an unknown
thief seized one of the sachels, containing
diamonds aud jewelry, valued at between
$15,000 and (20,000, and made his escape.
An Incident of the Russian Famine.
ST. Petersbuug. Nov. It Terrible
scenes are reported from the famine dis

three children and then hanged herself
upon being refused a small loan of money
by a rich neighbor in order to buy food
tor herself aud famishing babies.
Roman Catholics Find Fanlt with Some
Alleged Remarks About Italy.
Chicago, Nov. 11. Ben Butterworth is
in hot water and may lose bis position as
secretary and solicitor general of the
World's fair. In a speech delivered at the
Standard club last Thursday night be is
reported to have said: "Italy is suffering
from overtaxation. What the church
leaves the army takes. If I owned Italy
I'd hold an auction and invite all Amer
ica and I'd sell 10,000 crucifixes and 10,
000 madonnas and 1,000 churches, and I'd
establish schools in their Btead.lThe power
of the weak old man I speak it as rever
ently as I can is waning.
May Demand His Official Head.
By the "weak old man" the Roman
Catholics say that Mr. Butterworth
meant the pope, while the crucifixes and
madonnas that he proposed to sell are the
souvenirs given the pope on each birth
day by the powers of Europe. It is owing
to this allusion that the Roman Catholics
are indignant and they may demand Mr.
Butterworth's resignation from the
World's fair officials. Secretary Butter
worth claims that he was misre ported
and denies that he said anything in his
speech that could cause offense to Roman
Catholics or anybody else.
A CONSPIRACY TO ROB.
Developments In the Looting of the Ar
senal Pottery at Trenton.
Trextos, N. J., Nov. 1L The arrest of
W. W. Sweet, invoice clerk of the Ar
senal pottery.on Saturday, brings tolight
one of the greatest conspiracies ever
known in Trenton. Sweet had upward
or ten confederates, who were receiving
tbe goods aud disposing of them in other
cities at less than the cost to manufac
ture, aud although the amount taken can
not be exactly learned, owing to the
length 'of time that the operations have
been going on, Joseph, Mayer, the pro
prietor, says that it will reach 1100,000.
Tempted by Crockery Dealers.
Sweet had apparently entered into a big
conspiracy with outsiders to ruin his em
ployer. According to a statement by him
he did not suggest the thing first, but
crockery dealers came to him and offered
to divide tbe profits if he would send them
extra goods when tbey sent an order. It
is probable that if he bad not been caught
just at this t ii e he would soon have caused
the failure of the pottery.
FISH AND CHRISTIANITY.
Sermon That Might Have Keen Mad.
Gloucester, Mass., Nov. 1L The Rev.
William II. Ryder preached at the Uni
versalis! church on the subject "Can a
Man Be a Fish Dealer aud Be a Christian?''
He Slid: "The tricks in the fish business
are as well known to you as to me, else
you would not have turned out in such
numbers to hear me say what you dare
uot say. A man cannot get to Heaven
because he contributes so much for foreign
missions. Calling him a Christian does
not make him one any more than does tbe
labelling of thirty or forty pounds of fish
fcfty pounds' mate it so. He thought
religion should be taken more into busi
ness, and then it would be possible to
answer the question in his subject affirm
atively. He did not say anything of the
amateur fisherman who tells big yarns of
his great luck.
