John Redmond, in a message to the Irish people in Australia, says: "Victory means for Ireland immediate Borne Rule." This is taken as an indication not only } that the Liberal leaders are standing by their pledges on the Irish question, but that Mr Asquith has promised Mr. Red mond, in return for Nationalist support, that the Liberals if returned to power at I the coming election will introduce a Home Rule bill at the earliest possible \ opportunity after the veto power of the ; House of Lords has been swept away. _, ___ m _ [By tb« Associated Press.] London. >•'■ i 24.— 1n taking part In the debate in the House of Lords to- ; day on the Lansdown resolutions for the reformation of the upper chamber.

SUBWAYS WANTED QUICKLY Members, It Is Said, Fear Re jection of System Under Con sideration Would Mean Long Delay. With the exception of two, or possibly three, members, it was learned last night from a man who is in a position to knmv their views, all the meml^rs of the Board of Estimate are in favor of the trihormig-h subway system. He went further and predicted that before the expiration of the sixty days which it will have tc consider the contracts pre sented for its approval by the Public Service Commission the board would be unanimous for the triborough. Controller Prendprgast and President Mitchel of the Board of Aldermen. ea<'h having three of the sixteen votes in the board, are outspoken in their declara tion for an immediate building of a new subway with municipal funds. Neither looks with any favor at all upon the sug gestion made by the Mayor in a letter to president Towne of the Merchants' A.sso< iation, that some private concern .- ■-..,! to furnish all the money above $57,000,000 which will be needed for new subways. They believe that thpir pledges to th«» people when they were running for office would not allow them to favor any such scheme. Borough President Miller of The Bronx also feels the same way about it. and is prepared to vote for the triborough route. A -.other member of the board who is counted on to vote for th* triborough is President Cromwell of Richmond These four members of the board would cast «=isht votes, nor rourtine Mayor ■ r , who has thre^ votes, and Presi • McAneny of Manhattan and Presi dent Steers of Brooklyn, with two votes -ach. and President dresser of Queens. with one- vote. President McAneny, who has up to the present time been Inclined to be critical ■ - te as it stands, has come to the conclusion that it may be. the best solution after all. it is said. •As a matter of fact," said one of the advocates of the triborough system yes terday. "1 am firmly of the pinion t . ■.■ the board has the proposition put ;, to it and has it Hy a.- a body you will ?pf the tri borough passed by a unanimous vote." The proposition of William <; Mc- Adoo to operate the sr^atfr i art of the - . ; ch route and his assurance that he will submit a supplemental offer for . peration of other portions of it has done more than anything else to free the mind of some members of th^ Board of Estimate of serious doubts as to the wisdom of building the triborough.

Nov. 24.— Harry !>>e. aged seventeen years, was killed here to-day in a football game between the Tierney Cadets and an independent team, composed principally of Gilbert •preparatory School hoys. His skull was fractured and he died a few minutes aftgr t^e accident, and before medical aid could reach him. The fatality occurred after a mass play, which both teams had agreed to use. Lee had been running with the ball. He was tackled and downed, but arose after the pile of players had got up. He took a step, staggered and fell to the ground, unconscious. The field which was used for the game is the baseball field of the Gilbert Preparatory School, and is stony in spots. It is thought that when Lee was tackled his head struck a stone. The game was stopped at once. The score stood 6 to 6. The lad's body was taken to the home of his mother, who was prostrated with grief and is now in a serious condition.

THE SURVIVOR UNCONSCIOUS Brooklyn Men on Power Launch Petrel Put Up Grim Struggle, but the Odds Proved Overwhelming. The waters that race past the East Shoal, three-quarters of a mile off Rock away Point, claimed the lives of three men In a motor launch yesterday after they had put up a grim struggle against overwhelming odds. One man of the four who started out in the morning in the launch was rescued, but not until after he had been pounded into uncon sciousness by the waves. Before sunrise Joseph Hagstrom. of No. 12 Prospect Place, Brooklyn, a teacher of music, the owner of the 25 foot motor launch Petrel: Louis Hopper, of No. 9 Van Brunt street, Brooklyn; Louis Kestler. of the same address, and Bernard Blonquist, of No. 647 Baltic street, Brooklyn, appeared at ""Fred" Lundy*s fishing station, at the head of the bay. and boarded the boat. Preparations for an all day fishing ex cursion had been made, and the boat was heavily loaded with supplies for the outing. Hagstrom and his friends were in good spirits, and joked and played pranks as they made everything ship shape about the boat. In a few minutes they were ready and cast off the boat from the dock. The launch, a speedy boat, built on racing lines, was soon skirting the Ar verne coast and heading to sea. The last seen of it by those waiting on shor» was a smother of foam as it breasted the rollers. The Run to Rockaway Point. I" was .shortly after 2 o'clock that the fishing party started for home, and made a quick run as far as Roekaway Point. This is a spot which ha 3 !->ng been knew n as one of tn*- most treacherous on the Atlantic coast, even in the sum mer, when the tides are not so tricky. When th<> Petrel began to plunge her long, sharp prow Into the waters of the shoals th*> tide was running with wrench ing force. Hagstrom. who was at the steering wheel, thought to save his craft by run ning close in between the point and the East Shoal. He knew the water in the narrow channel was shallow, but th^ Petrel was of light draft, and. besides, .^he was oeing tossed like an egg shell, so h*> headed for the channel. Aided by the sv.-^ep of the tide. xh a Petrel fairly raced through the inlet. It was risky work, and Hagstrom and his friends were momentarily in fear that a heavy pea would swamp their boat. The men lay flat on the deck, those who had to be outside. whil<» Blonquist. running the engine, had r.> brace himself against th** side ot the cabin. Th>> launch had reached a pnlnt thre^-quart^rs of thn distance down the channel, nnd Haestrorr, anf ] n j 3 crew were just beginning to be hopeful of ultimate safety, when a giant sea rushed down on them. The' Petrel staggered beneath the blow, her bow raised high in the air. then shuddered and settled under the weight of water. Hagstrom was swept from the wheel. At the same instant the Petrel was turned over and tossed up on the rocks at the eastern end of the reef. Hopper and Blonquist were carried away, their bod being thrown up close Lef-ides Hagstrom. K*»stler. who had sought shelter in the cabin of the Petrel. was imprisoned and had no chance for his life. Hlonquist and Hopper managed to stagger to the overturned craft and cling t> her keel until the fishing sloop Rose R.. In command of Captain Rau. bore In sight. Captain Rau ran th»» sloop as close is he dared, then brought her up, while Van Houten. the mate, threw a rope to Hop per and Blonquist. Blonnuist caught it. but Hopper was too exhausted. Blonquist was pulled aboard the -loop, unconscious and bleed ing. Hopper was swept away by the «ea. Van Houten tied a rope about his waist, leaped into the channel, made . ■-. way to here Hopper's body was being beaten by the waves, and carried It back on his shoulders. After this Van Houten re turned and got Hagstrom's body. Ef fortfl to find Kestler's bods were in vain.

Nov. 24.— The mutiny in the Brazilian navy. which broke out the nltrht of November & on the battle ship Minas Geraes and extended to th« Sao Paulo and other vessels of the f.eet. and in which four officers were murdered and this city was bombarded, is ■■ a critical staee to-night. The mutineers to-daj* sent to the government a strongly worded ultimatum, demanding an in crease in pay and the abolition of cor poral punishment and several other unpopular naval regulations. Congress was called in extraordinary session to consider the situation. Tha Senate voted unanimously in favor ■! amnesty to the mutineers, but the Chamber of Deputies, after discussing the question moat of the day. adjourned until to-morrow without taking final action. It is thought that amnesty will be voted by a small majority. The Sao Paulo and th» cruiser Ba.hi» ■withdrew- from the harbor to-night, but the Minas Geraes took up a position op posite the Government Palace. An ef fort was made to induce the mutineers to surrender, bat they refused to do so> until the government grants their de mands. According to the "Journal"' President Fonseca is disposed to sign an amnesty proclamation as soon as both, houses or Congress shall have voted. it. A message was sent from the Minaa Geraes this morning: to President Fonesca. saying that th«s mutineers, a-^ei'-ed 3i* <sn»cision of the pMtt^BCaßf VTMH confidence. The British Minister to-day informed the Brazilian- government that any at tempt to destroy the mutinous war ves sels by torpedoes would involve the safety of British subjects on board. ■ How th© Mutiny Broke Out. About 1O o'clock on the night of No* vember '--. as Captain Neves, command ing the battleship Minai? Geraes. re turned from dinner on the French train ing ship Duguay Trouin he heard a vio lent uproar and a fusillade of shots. It ■was the crew of his vessel who had revolted. Captain Neves and two other officers offered resistance to some of tht* sailors and were killed, and another of ficer was mortally wounded. The ma tinous crew meanwhile shouted ' Lons Live Liberty'" The insurrection-.- movement then broke out on board the other new Bra | zilian Dreadnought, the battleship Sao I Paulo, and the scout ship Bahia. All the officers having been landed, a plain. sailor of the first class named Jeaa Candide took command of the sqaudron. Ammunition was provided, provision* were requisitioned and a coal depot on the Isle of Vianna was taken. VMM i were prevented from transporting coal for th*» french steamer Atlantique and th*> English ship Ororcsa. The movempnt was declared to b» without political significance. 7ha mutineers «ent a message to President Fonseca setting forth their claims for immediate abolition of corporal pun ! ishment on board ship, an increase in their pay according to the programme submitted to Congress some time ago. and diminution of the work with whicl* they are burdened by th* maintenance of Incomplete crews. The statement added that a bombardment of the city and of other ships in the harbor would follow the refusal of their demands. City of Rio Bombarded. The government refrained from reply* I ing to the ultimatum of the mutineers and a moderately severe fire was soon, opened by them upon the city. This continued at Intervals all m* 1 -' Tha inhabitants of Rio- de Janeiro wer© thrown Inter confusion by the suddenness of the attack. It has been learned that besides Cap tain Neves and the two officers several sailors also were killed. When the mutineers took control of the warships the vessels steamed around the bay. almost all of them flying th* r«* flag of revolt at their mastheads. The torpedo boat destroyers remained loyal, and anchored in the furthest corner of th-» bay. At 7 o'clock on the morning of Am 23rd the Mlnas Gtam the Sao Paulo. th» Bahia and the battleship Marshal Flori ano crossed the bar and tired on th» fortress." which refrained from respond - ing. Curious crowds gathered on th» waterfront and watched Mm vessel* manoeuvre. Surprise was expressed at the precision with which the big fight ! ing ships were handled by their crews. It was difficult to imagine the absence of all the officers from the vessels.
