Rome, Oct. 6.— Although the Papal Nuncio at Lisbon has not yet been able to communicate to the Vatican the opinion prevailing there concerning- the 1 revolutionary movement, the opinion Is held at the Vatican that the last word on the Braganza dynasty has not been said. The fact that the navy has gone over to the side of the revolutionary c* ont is not considered of great Importance as bearing upon the permanency of the so-called republic, while It Is also pointed out that the provinces and the garrisons outside of Lisbon may yet have some in fluence in a definite settlement. Hope Is expressed at the Vatican that the events in Portugal may prove a les son to Spain, where, according to the Church authorities. King Alfonso is making the same mistake of relying on the progressive elements, which are un faithful, while at the same time he is alienating the loyalty of the conservative Catholics.

OCTOBER 7, 1010- AIMS OF REPUBLICAN PARTY IN PORTUGAL Programme Given in Detail by Theophile Braga. Now Pro visional President. CONSTITUTIONAL SYSTEM Reform of Legislative, Executive and Judicial Powers Proposed — Safeguards for Indi vidual Liberty. Theophile Braga. now the head of the provisional government of Portugal, In a recent iasue of "O Mundo." the official newspaper of the Republican party in Portugal, gives the programme of that party in detail. He says: The constitutional political system, founded on an irrational nmalgamation of sovereignty by divine right with sov ereignty of the people, could only have its oriein in and be sustained by the false conception of a temporary compromise be tween absolutism' and the 'revolution.' It \vas= thin compromise which prevented the plorious work accomplished at the end of tbe eighteenth century and made the nine tp^nth century pass among unstable po litical conditions, without a practical po lution of the social problem having as yet been found. The public had confidence 'n this system, conceived by idealistic the orists, but practical experience extending ov r more than a half century has proved that the said compromise or agreement was counterfeited by absolutism, which, having been intrusted with the task of carrying It out, covered up monarchical despotism with the parliamentary system and with cabinets resisting the will of the legislature. This constitutional system, which could not wdl be accepted even as a transitory makeshift, used all possible means, both subtle and violent, for attaining perma nency, such as the armea Intervention of foreign governments, thereby obstructing ali progress and weakening the nation by financial ruin, by the degradation of in dividual character and making even its own autonomy a laughing stock. The absolutism concealed in the granted constitution has been unmasked by the most absurd abuse of ministerial dictator ship, and th© people cannot bear it, while revolutionism has constantly kept Its as pirations in check by confining itself to the expression of opinions based on conviction, both legitimate and scientific, such as are at the present time constructively set forth by modern democracy. These are the. rea sons why the Republican party exists in Tortugal and why it has entered into a close international union with the democ racy of the Ijatin nations. In view of the forerunners of a tremen .-1o:;s national disaster (the loss of the colo nies, the surrender of the public revenues to foreign syndicates and the consequent conversion of Portugal into a Spanish prov ince), it is necessary for the country to have a party of its own which will fight for its dignity and independence, taking from modern civilization tho foundations for a new political reorganization. This conviction has stimulated the spontaneous organization of the Portuguese Republican party, whi-h is developing in proportion to the increasing dejection of the people and Urn extension of modern knowledge which flows toward us on the mighty Eu ropean stream of enlightenment. Tf this party is to utilize its power, it is necessary that there should be a clear understand ing of the conditions through which the Portuguese nation i.<= passing at the pres ent time, and there must be unity of will power to meet the terrifying crisis. A mere critical review of the political events and of the dissolution of the mon archical parties is sufficient to explain the actual situation. Unanimity of mind must be sc-urM by the scientific truth and timeliness of the demo cratic auctilnee. even in the event of their more narrow application to tho reorganiza tion of our small country. Tbe history of civilization dfmonstratps that the liberty which it assures consists In the independence and co-existence of the "Individual" and of the "*tate." As an in corporator of all that constitutes "liberty,"' the state Is the realization of "constant watchfulness." or: Kqnallty before the law (Individual lia bility*; Equality In lawmaking (universal suf frage); Equality In the execution of the law ("the delegation of temporary, revocable powers). The complete exercise of these functions, safeguarded by thr state, results In. indi vidual "autonomy,"' or, in other words, in liberty in all direct, speculative or modify ing human acts. All reforms must be concomitant with the two following political factors: Organization of the Powers of the State. The Legislative Power.

(3) The Department of Public Economy, comprising agriculture. industry, commerce and navigation, concessions for works, pouts and telegraphs, collection of taxes, statistics and general accounts.

WORE FIGHTING RUMORED Madrid Heard of Battle in Lisbon Yesterday. Ma-irld. Oct. 6— The struggle b^twwn the. revolutionists and loyalists at Ushon n tinues to-day. Advices from th" Portuguese capital the authenticity of which can safely be as sumed are meagre. The report of con tinued fighting, however, Is from a news source and may have escaped the censor. Tho Intelligence Is significant as putting a new light on the situation. One dispatch which came out of Lisbon early to-day by wav of Vlgo declared that troops faithful to the King still held Im portant points last evening and that con tinued fighting duriner the night was ex pected. It was admitted, however, that the Republicans had got the upper hand after thirty hours of fighting. This dispatch paid that a moderate esti mate of the losses on both sides was 200 dead and 450 persons wounded. The city was only slightly damaged by the bom bardment. Official advices received this afternoon state that the republic has been proclaimed at Oporto, Estremoz. Selva. Braga. Colm hra. Evora and Portalegre, Portugal, and that the indications are the struggle is reaching an eno 1 . Tho Karriaons of Elva* and Setubal. It is reported, remain loyal, but will not com bat the revolution. One of the new Ministers in the provi sional government is touring the country, urging tho people to remain quiet. Only troops on their way to Join the revniu.ioniftH are allowed to enter Lisbon. MANCHESTER LOCKOUT ENDS Operatives Agree to Arbitrate the Case of George Howe. Manchester, England. Oct. 6. -The trouble between the Federation of Master Cotton Spinners ;tnd their employes, which resulted the lockout of 130,000 operatives, was set tled to-day. The mills will be reopened on Monday.

Heretofore, the strikers had instated that How* be re employed in his former position until the merits of the dispute were determined. Howe was discharged when, with the support of his union, ho refused to clean the machinery which ht> operated, on the frrouml that tho cleaning was not properly a part of his work. UNITED STATES CAREFUL No Premature Recognition of Republic in Portugal. Washington. Oct. 6.— The State Depart ment received only one dispatch to-day on the Portuguese situation, that being a be lated message from Minister Gage, at Ms bon. whoso advices had been fully covered In press dispatches. Viscount «le Alte. the Portuguese Minister, who has secluded him self, did not get In touch with the depart ment. This government has received no com munication from the provisional republic. When the time, comes to recognize It, ex pressly or implledly, m to refuse to recog nize it, there are ample precedents to gov ern its course. It could give recognition by written or oral declaration, by entering Into negotiations, by sending or receiving diplomatic agents, by exchange of exequa turs of consuls or by formation of conven tional relations. Premature recognition ha? to be guarded against, for It constitutes intervention— act, however, which was committed by France when It recognized this country in 177*. Tho United States has refused a num ber of times to recognize Independence, as In the cases of Hungary In 1549 and Cuba In 1575. The rellnqutshment of Cabinet port folios by Monarchists to-day, however, fur nishes. in the view of officials here, an ad ditional step toward making the provisional government regular. Under clearly recojarnlzed International law, the new government must be bound by engagements entered Into by the old one. A monarchy may be. changed into a re public, and vie* versa, but the nation, un der the principle of the continuity of states, remains with Its rights and obligations un changed. 1 his government has several treaties with Portugal. About two years ago It entered into a treaty exempting from extradition f-nm Portugal any person charged with crime on whom the death penalty could be MM fed for the offenr* charged by the laws of the jurisdiction sn which the charge was pending. This grew out of Portugal's prohibition of capital punishment. The treaties also relate to ar "itxation and natu ralization.
