Watching from Shore.
In his anxiety to show a strange man
what a pood swimmer he was. ten-year
old Peter Brinckman threw aside all
caution yesterday afternt*m as he swam
In the North River/off V_'4th street, and
was drowned. Harbor policemen
grappled for his body, but up to a late
hour last night had not found it.
After school Peter, his five-year-old
brother William and a chum went to
swim. They paddled around the rocky
shore for a time and then Peter, who had
recently learned to swim, swam out from
shore. A man who had been standing
near the water asked him to see how far
out he could go. Peter struggled out for
about forty feet and then started back.
He was suddenly taken with a cramp
and went under.

West Point Board of Inquiry
Finds Them Guilty of
Longan "'Silence."
Findings Go to Secretary of War
and President — Longan May
Seek Other Duty — Cadets
Tell Grievances.
[By Tel^eraph to The Tribunal
West Point. N. V.. Oct. s.— The board
of inquiry appointed to investigate the
"silencing" of Captain !><>npan by the
corps of cadets, has completed its work,
and If its findings are approved by the
Secretary of War and the President.
three- cadets will be dismissed. All of
them. are members of the first class, who
would have been graduated and commis
sioned second lieutenants next June.
These men have conduct records that
stand ' against them, and It 1? partly
due to this fact that the board of in
quiry has recommended their dismissal
from the service.
< It is expected here that Captain I.on
pan will voluntarily ask to be assigned
to his regiment or some other duty.
Officers at the Academy say that his use
fulness as a discipline officer has ceased,
Eince the cadets have shown in the most
forceful way at their command that they
have no respect for him.
One of the cadets whose dismissal, it
is said, has been recommended is the son
of an army officer of high rank. He has
been In trouble several times before.
The board of Inquiry found great diffi
culty in getting to the bottdro of the
trouble. The cadets, according to their
testimony, had felt for some time that
they had not been treated fairly by
Captain Longan. As the list of their
grievances. r.al or imaginary, at the
hands of this officer grew, [the feeling
against him became more and more in
tense, until It was proposed by several
members of the senior class to give him
•the aUence." This suggestion was not
immediately approved by the corps, and
it was not until ten days or two weeks
after it was first made that it was
finally approved.
ofllcers stationed at the academy say
that the cadets made their greatest mis
take when they repeat, d the original
-alienee." That action went fur toward
taking away from them any sympathy
thai they might otherwise have had; and
furthermore the, second "silencer made it
Impossible for General Barry, the new
superintendent, to deal with the corps
lightly. Had the cadets contented them-

it go at that. it is considered highly im
probable that any heavy punishment
would have been inflicted.

While it Is definitely knrwn thai the
revolutionaries have won the flay in

as to the fate of the fugitive sovereign.
At one and the same time he is reported

According to the British Minister at

The army is distributed In small gar

Oporto, for example, is traditlonallv

government is not yet entitled t-> count
upon the northern city's support.
But the peasantry is not likely to b<%

of government so long as they tan live
under reasonably fair conditions.
There is reason to fear that the out
break in Portugal may have reflex action
in Spain, although in many respects the
positions of Spain and Portugal are very
different. For instance, the po^er of the
clergy in the latter country is hy no
means so important as that of the clergy
in Spain.
It is reported that the King's open
partiality for a famous French actress,
on whom he showered jewels, hastened
the crisis.

Lisbon. Oct. 5. — A report was circu

in the direction of Monsanto.
The revolution was decided upon only
at 8 o'clock Monday night, at the ur

government had ordered the cruiser Don
Carlos to leave port the following day.
Thin tardy decision prevented profit

Portugal has been proclaimed a republic. According to the latc-t
Lisbon advices, Thcophile P>rap.a. a noted Republican leader, is the
new President. The "Portuguese Marseillaise" is the new national
anthem, and the emblem of monarchy on the palace ha- been replaced
by the flap; of Red and Green, the colors of th • Republican part}.
That there was fierce fighting in the streets of Lisbon is confirmed
by dispatches from ail quarters. Disorders at Oporto have been re
pressed by the troops, many regiments of which are said to be still
loyal to the King.
King Manuel, the Queen mother and the Queen Dowager are re
ported to have taken refuge in the palace at Mafra. a short distance
out of Lisbon. They may now be on a British warship bound tor
