SHIPS OF WAR.
Peixoto Is to Have a
Strong Fleet.
FOUR IN SIGHT NOW.
De Mello Must Look to
His Laurels.
BIG GUNS AND AMMUNITION
And the Fastest Torpedo-Boat
in the World.
EL CID WILL NOT GO ALONE.
Admiral Maurity Will Be Prepared
to Meet His Old Friend
on the Seas.
New York, Oct. There is no longer
the slightest doubt of the uses to which El
Cid, the steamship which was purchased
through Flint & Co. from C. P. Hunting
ton, will be put*. The steam yacht Feiseen,
which lias a record a? the fastest in the
world, was bought to-day by Flint & Co.
from W. B. Coggswell. She wiii be placed
on the deck of El Cid for use as a torpedo
boat.
The yacht is now at City Island, and
workmen are busy on her night and day
converting her into a torpedo-Doat. The
work will probably be finished in two
weeks. The cabin of the yacht is being
removed, aud the best steel plates are
being put in. In place of the ordinary
pilot-house a conning tower will be built,
and in the bow of the yacht will be a
torpedo-tube, placed forward on a pivot,
on which it will be capable of traversing
an arc ISO degrees aft. A one-pound raised
fire gun will be carried.
The Feiseen has made seven miles at
the rate of 31.5% miles an bour. She cost
$30,000. Mr. Gardner refused to tell what
was paid for her by Flint & Co.
Admiral Maurity was aboard El Cid to
day looking at her and sizing up her capa
bilities as a war vessel, and later in the
day a reporter found Dr. Salvador de Men
donca, Brazilian Minister to this country,
on board.
He was making suggestions a. to what
should be done to the steamship. It was
learned that El Cid would be fitted up as a
fast cruiser as one of a fleet of four power
ful war vessels to be commanded by Ad
miral Maurity. This fleet will be a most
formidable oue and will be able to give
Admiral Mello and bis command a bard
tight should they come to close quarters.
The Government of Brazil, in addition to
El Cid, will have three new vessels, two of
which will be ironclads of the latest and
most effective type.
One of these ironclads is being turned
out by tbe Armstrongs in England and
the Richeuala is now at Toulon, where she
is being fitted out. There also is the
cruiser Benjamin Constant, which has
been; bought for Brazil. Admiral Maurity
was formerly a monarchist and a friend of
De Mello, but now he is a republican and
will give ihe heartiest support to Peixoto
and his Government. He is one of the
best naval officers in the service of Brazil.
• El Ciil this morning was towed fiom her
pier down to the Erie basin, where a large
force was put to work getting her ready to
be cleaned and painted. Her bottom will
be painted with anti -fouling paint, and
ships' carpenters were at work to-day
measuring and making calculations as to
how and where her guns would be placed.
In her bow on the main deck will be a
dynamite gun, and near by will be two
thirty-three-pound guns. On the forward
deckhouse will be placed twelve rapid
firing guns.
Admiral Maurity left for Chicago at 3
o'clock this afternoon. He is so much oc
cupied with the Brazilian exhibit at the
exposition that be has only been able to
give four days to the details necessary for
the purchase and fining out of El Cid.
For this reason the Brazilian Minister, Dr.
Mendonca, bas been compelled to call
upon gentleman who are experts in naval
architecture to superintend the fitting out
of tbe ship, and to take charge of the
metamorphosis that is now turning her a
peaceful freighter into a cruiser.
ln addition to the armament already de
scribed. El Cid will be fitted with Howell
torpedoes, which have been adopted by
the United Stales Government.
A telegram from Providence to-night
stated that _je Hotchkiss Ordnance Com
pany was getting several torpedoes ready,
presumably for the use of the El Cid. The
officers of the company, however, refused
to say anything about what tbe destina
tion of the torpedoes was.
it is not known bow long it will take to
fit out El Cid, but no attempt will be made
to armor any part of ber. The Brazilian
Government has need of a fleet at once,
and it is expected that tbe three men-of
war will sail very shortly.
The big armored cruiser New York has
received orders to prepare to proceed to
Brazil at once.
It is announced that tbe successor of
Acting Rear-Admiral Stanton will sail for
Rio de Janeiro on the New York, but who
this officer will be is not yet known.

The Herald's Rio de Janeiro dispatch
says: President Peixoto has issued the
following statement: The rebel vessels
are imprisoned in the bay of Rio de Jan
eiro. Further more, there is ample proof
that the bombardment of the ships from
the Government forts has done serious
damage. 919
Two men-of-war have been rendered
useless and three injured and the armed
cruisers damaged so much that they are
powerless. The Government is daily tak
ing measures toward isolating the various
refractory elements in Bahia.
All attempts to land forces up to this
time bave failed, the rebels being repulsed
with great loss. The general political
situation is good, and there is no public
manifestation in favor of the rebels.
In the Federal States the garrisons are
giving energetic assistance to tbe Govern
ment, the sole exception being Mailha,
where is situated the city of Desterro, in
which the rebels have organized a govern
ment without moral or material elements
and composed of members of whom scarce
ly two dare set foot on the continent.
All other States, however, have remained
faithful to the Federal Government.
The Herald's Montevideo dispatch says:
The Revolutionary Provisional Govern
ment has declared Santa Catarina a free
port. From Rio Grande the report conies
that the city of Santa Ana will probably
be In possession of the revolutionists in a
few days.
It is asserted that Fort Santa Cruz 19
perfectly neutral, but it Is generally believed
the garrison will declare for Admiral de
Mello. A report has beeu received that
the Riacuielo has sailed from Toulon and
will join De Mello on her arrival.
STANTON'S EXCUSE.
He Saluted the Brazilian Flag Which
De Mello Flew.
Washington, Oct 28.— Secretary Her
bert to-day gave out the following state
ment and telegram in regard to the Stan
ton-Mello incident: "Inasmuch as there
seems to be an impression that the Pres
ident has acted in the matter of
removing Admiral Stanton without
hearing from him, it is fair to state
that before the order was issued Secre
tary Herbert sent a telegram of Inquiry
and received the following reply, dated
Rio Janeiro, October 25: 'Secretary of the
Navy, Washington : Before anchoring sa
luted the flag of Brazil with twenty-oue
guns. The salute was returned by the
Government fort. After anchoring re
ceived a visit from au aid-de-camp of Ad
miral de Mello, flying the Brazilian flag.
Returned said Visit and saluted the Bra
zilian admiral afloat. The salute was
returned by the same. No call received
from any Brazilian official from shore.
Next day called upon the Brazilian admi
ral. The visit was returned. De Mello is
the only Brazilian admiral afloat.' This
was signed Stanton."
New Yokk, Ocl. 28.— The armored
cruiser New York, now at Brooklyn Navy
yard, has been ordered to be ready within
twenty-four hours to put to sea. It is un
derstood that the New York has been or
dered to Rio Janeiro in order to protect
American interests and to settle any un
pleasantness caused by Admiral Stanton
exchanging courtesies with Admiral de
Mello. •'

Yallejo, Oct. 28.— Considerable in

CRIME AND BLOOD.
How England Gained Her
Empire.
PAYING FOR RHODES* GOLD.
Here Is the True Story of the
Matabele War.
USING THE POWER OF BRITAIN.
And the Nation Is on the Verge of
the Greatest Scandal in -
History.
New York, Oct. 28.— Harold Frederic
cables the Times from London: When
Parliament reassembles next week it will
not be Ireland which will claim pre
eminent attention, nor yet any of the
numerous English and Welsh domestic
reforms which are crowding together and
tugging at the leash just behind home
rule.
These must wait for the moment while
we talk about Lobengula and bis Mata
beles In far-away South Africa. This has
truly become the question of the day, and
men are divided as fiercely over it as they
did about Egypt ten years ago.
It is worth observation elsewhere, be
cause it affords, as by some curious geo
logical survival, a- very detailed study of
the materials making up the foundations
of the British colonial empire. That these
were too often laid in treachery, crime and
blood is well enough known, but there
exists the palliating excuse that the
English nation in the days of slow com
munication only learned how its empire
was gained after it had come into its pos
session.
The present episode is interesting be
cause it gives us on the one hand a spirited
reproduction of dive's worst methods, and
on the other shows us the English people
informed of the progress of affairs daily by
cable and by camera, watching it, indeed,
with perfect comprehension of what it all
means.
To do them justice, the English do not
like what they are seeing, aud few things
seem more certain than that there will be
a tremendous public row about the whole
wretched business. The first demand wilt
be for a special Parliamentary committee
of Inquiry into the constitution aud per
sonnel of the Chartered Company.
All that is known is that Cecil Rhodes
and a few others got hold of a mining con
cession from Lobengula and formed a com
pany on the strength of this with a capital
of 5100,000. They then ran charges, sales
and transfers from one to the other of a
series of straw organizations till they had
swollen it into the so-called Concessions
Company, with a capital of 820,000,0.0.
Then the chartered company was
formed here, with a capital of $5,000,000,
to lease and work the concession, bear all
expenses and pay over one-half its profits
to the former company. The shares of
both companies have been dealt in on
the London Stock Exchange, the
chartered at wild premiums going
once above 400 per cent. This in itself is
doing to involve financial results of the
most cruel character later on, but there
are other aspects temporarily of more im
portance.
The granting of a royal charter is treated
in England as one of the gravest and most
delicately responsible governmental acts.
Among the countless other prerogative
which the possession of tbis charter con
fers is that of keeping secret, even from
the income-tax officials, the names of its
shareholders.
Tne only Information obtainable is that
the charter was granted on condition that
the Dukes of Aberdeen and Fife were
made life directors, but, if there is no fur
ther certain knowledge, there is a mass of
suspicions of the most sinister sort.
Public feeling has already risen to a
point where it is impossible that Parlia
ment should refuse an inquiry, and it is
the common understanding in official cir
cles that the Investigation will reveal the
blackest politico-financial scandal Eng
land has known in our time.
The Chronicle to-day says: ''We warn
the public that we are within measurable
distance of a gigantic scandal," and other
radical papers have been more guardedly
hinting the same thing during the past
week.
I can say no more now than that specific
pro ifs of corrupt collusion on the part of
high officials are believed lie so close to the
surface tbat any parliamentary scratching.
do matter how tender, will bring them to
light.
There is a whole band of radical mem
bers resolute that the inquiry shall be

neither partial nor tender. So generally
diffused is this instinctive understand
ing that there will be a huge home
scandal ovor the formation of. the Char
tered Company that the whole subject of
tne Matabele war is treated as a party
matter, the Tories and Unionists being
in favor of it and the Liberals against it.
A month or more ago, when the report
was cabled that Lobengula's warriors had
attacked tbe Becbuanasjand the police, the
Liberal organs were weak enough to vol
unteer an admission that this altered the
situation and justified hostilities.
It would have been belter to have waited
for the truth, which was. of course, that
Lobengula's warriors bad done uo such
thing. However, the reaction has been so
powerful ever since that now the anti
war party here stourly overbalances and
outshouts the jingo faction.
Every day brings fresh facts to strength
en this popular protest ag. inst Rhodes'
enterprise and its methods. The ear
lier fear that the chartered com
pany would be able to drag the Government
into its service and use British troops for
its own filibustering projects is now quite
dead. The question is at present whether
the Government shall not step in and
stop the company's marauding expedition
and take the whole matter outof its bands.
Some of Rhodes' friends here are privately
threatening that if this is done the. entire
group of Cape Colonies will revolt
and declare their independence, but even
this contingency will not, I believe, deter
England from intervening to prevent the
wanton, murderous rushing of Matabeland
to recoup the London stock exchange for
its losses on Mashoualand.
In the Parliamentary commotion now to
ensue it may be worth while to remember
that Cecil Rhodes' personal agent in
England is Rochelort Maguire, one of the
nine Parnellite members, and that it is a
matter of common allegation in Ireland
that he has paid a good share of the elec
tion expenses of the other eight.
John Redmond gives home rule as the
issue on which he and his party intend
voting against the Government, but the
real reasons, as I have pointed out before,
have much more to do with Cecil Rhodes'
interests than with Parnell's memory.
HONORED HIS UNCLE.
Emperor William's Reception of
the Duke of Gotha.
-
He Donned a Naval Uniform and
Dined at the Mess of Foot-
Guard Officers.
Berlin, Oct. 28.— The unusual splendor
of Emperor William's reception to his
uncle, the Duke of Gotha-Coburg (Duke
of Edinburgh), caused a great deal of com
ment In this city. The reception took
place at Potsdam, and upon the occasion
of the first visit of Duke Saxe-Ooburg-
Gotha to the imperial court since his ac
cession to the Dukedom of Cobnrg.
The scene at the Wild Park railroad
station was one of the most brilliant
it is possible to imagine. Emperor Wil
liam was dressed in naval uniform as a
compliment to his un«le, who is an admiral
in the British navy, and was accompanied
by ail the Princes at present serving with
regiments at Potsdam or at Berlin.
This evening the Emperor and Duke
dined at tbe mess of the officers of the First
Regiment of . footgnards.t.
The eldest son of Prince Albrecht of
Prussia is now 19 years of .ge and is
spoken of as the future husband of the
Qiieen of Holland.
The general press continues to regard
the Franco-Russian fetes with indiffer
ence. As a matter of fact, the feeling of
Germany against Russia is far less strained
than a few weeks ago. The question of
the German-American extradition treaty,
which is still being negotiated, is .not
likely to come to a successful issue for
some time.
The socialist congress at Cologne closed
this afternoon. The session was marked
by tumult and excitement, culminating in
Herr .bebel making a furious attack upon
Ilerr Miguel, the Finance Minister. Herr
Bebel read a letter written by Miguel to
Carl Marc years ago. In which the former
says he is communist and atheist.
The arrest of a workman named Pikozki
for sending an infernal machine to a former
employer, a locksmith' named Schwarck,
which exploded while being examined, de
veloped into an alleged plot to kill Em
pert William during a recent visit of the
latter to Spandau.
Pikozki declared he was offered 300
mark, by the locksmith if he would throw
the infernal machine into the Emperor's
carriage. Pikozki added all the details of
his escape were arranged by a large crowd
of confederates and his passage to Amer
ica was secured, but Pikozki says he de
clined to throw the infernal machine. The
police are investigating the story, but do
not place much credence to it. Pikozki
was sentenced to two years' imprisonment.

CONFLICTING STORIES.
The Moors Seems to Be Getting the
Best of the Spaniards.
Madrid, Oct, 23.— The Minister of War
has received a telegram from Melilla say
ing that the Moors attacked the fort in
course of erection by the Spanish troops
this morning in great force, compelling
the Spaniards to retreat, though they did
so in good order and inflicted considerable
loss on tbe enemy.
Other advices are to the effect that the
troops under General Ortega engaged the
Moors in a sharp fight and succeeded in
driving the latter- from tneir trenches.
The loss on both sides was very heavy,
many Spanish officers being kill, d, and
among them General Margillo, commander
of the garrison.
General Ortega has demanded re-enforce
ments, and two regiments are now to be
dispatched to Mellila.

Senators Getting Down to
Work.
SHERMAN FAVORS BONDS.

The Gold Reserve Is Being
Steadily Depleted.
VOORHEES WANTS EVERYTHING.
Time Enough to Talk About Bonds
When the Sherman Act Has
Been Repealed.
Washington, Get. 28.— When the Sen
ate convened tins morning there were fifty
two Senators present.
The currency deficiency bill was taken
up and passed, also Cullom's joint reso
lution transferrins the models of battle
ships at the World's Fair to the State of
Illinois for the armory of the naval mi
litia.
The repeal bill was then taken ud and
Wolcott addressed the Senate in opposi
tion.
He was followed by Sherman, who
spoke of the depleted condition of the
treasury and the invasion of the gold re
serve, which he said was reduced to $80,
--000,000. To rectify this the Secretary of
the Treasury should be authorized to issue
bonds. He considered it unwise to offer
such an amendment to the present bill, but
he had read a proposition for the sale of
?200,000.000 3 per cent bonds as the method
he would suggest for relief.
Sherman was followed by Gorman, who
contended that when Congress met the
Democratic party was hopelessly divided
on the silver question, as were the Repub
licans. There was not a majority in favor
of unconditional repeal, he asserted, for
many of those who would vote that way
wauted some other measure passed in place
of tho Sherman law.
Stewart then spoke a few minutes, when
Siioui) of Idaho took the floor and read a
short speech, predicting that disaster
would follow repeal.
At the end of Shoup's speech Stewart
offered a substitute for Perkins' amend
ment, which was practically to the same
effect, but differently worded. The substi
tute was lost— 29 to 39. Perkins' amend
ment was lost— 3o to 41.
Berry of Arkansas offered the Bland-
Allison law as a proviso to the repeal bill.
Berry said the Bland-Allison act outfit to
be a measure which the Democrats could
agree uiou. He spoke, he said, lor the
silver Democrats of the South, whose peo
ple demanded something for silver. The
victory of the Northern Democrats over
the Southern Democrats was obtained un
der the leadership of the Senator from
Ohio (Sherman).
Voorhees said many policies had been
proposed as amendments to the bill which
would under different circumstances meet
his approval. Ha was charged with the
great responsibility of passing the bill un
incumbered, and insisted that legislation
would not end with the passage of this
bill. He would opp 'se the issue of bonds
at this time. lie would also oppose But
ler's State bank tax repeal. He. was for
it as a separate bill, but not. as an amend
ment to this bill. When Secretary Carlisle.
■. great lawyer, told him he had the au
thority to issue bonds lie believed it. The
Senator from Ohio was right in some of
his positions. Provisions ought to be made
for bonds for a shorter date aud a lower
interest.
Berry's amendment for the restoration
of the Bland-Allison law was rejected by
a vote of 33 ayes to 37 noes, the highest
vote any amendment had received. Allen's
amendment for the tree coinage of silver
at the ratio of 16 to 1 was rejected, 31 ayes
to 41 noes. Blackburn's amendment was
rejected, 28 to 42. Stewart's amendment
inviting the Republicans of Central and
South America to join with the United
States in convention was rejected, 32 ayes
to 42 noes. The first sectiou of Squires'
amendment was rejected, 30 to 42, and the
second section was withdrawn.
Butler did not offer, as he be.d proposed
to do, his amendment to the repeal of the
State bank tax. An amendment offered
by Pfeffer wus rejected; ayes 7, noes 58.
Allen's amendment was voted down with
out resorting to rollcall. Harris did not
offer or ask a vote upon his amendment.
Pascne p.oposrd an amend which
was ordered printed, with the understand
ing that it could be offered on Monday.
The Senate then went into executive
session, at the expiration of which a recess
was taken until Momiav.
