Royalist Uprising Designed
to Keep Portugal Out of
Nations' Conflict Man
uel Urges Followers to
Join Allies.
LONDON, Oct 21
A serious situation has developed Is
Portugal as a result of the royalist revo.
lutlonary outbreak, according to late ad.
vices received hero today, A dispatch
from Oporto says:
"Telegraphic and telephonic communl-
cation with Lisbon has been cut. a
number of bombs have been found on
tho railways."
1 A delayed dispatch from a news agency
currcaponuem, hciu iiuiu iisDon TUei-
dny night, says:
"The night (Monday) passed quietly In
tho provinces. There has been no at
tempt at Insurrection except at Braganza.
nnd Mnsra. At the lntter place 150 men
In the Infantry school were arrested, In
the course of the night parties paraded
the streets cheering for the republic and
making hostile, demonstrations outside
the ofllccs of the monarchical news
papers. "The Royalist outbreak at this time
la attributed to a plot to prevent Por
tugal Joining the Allies. Because of this
belief, cx-KIng Manuel has addressed a
j letter to his followers, appealing to the
j Ronllsts to unite with the other parties
'In derense or I'ortugnl.
"I have offered myself unreservedly to
tho King of Knglnnd for any work or
service to the alliance which has existed
between the two countries for six cen
turies," he says In the message to his
New Minister to United States Denies
Friction With Turkey.
WASHINGTON', Oct. 22. "We shall en
tei the war If any mote of the Balkan
.States do, and necessarily we shall go
to war If Servla Is attacked by any other
Balkan States, since we have an alliance
with Seivln. But at present there ap
pears no likelihood that we shall have
to take part In the Kuropenn conflict."
ThH statement was made by Minister
bohllcmann. of Greece. The now envoy,
who have Just taken up his residence In
Washington, freely discussed the Near
Oistern situation.
"We have not mobilized and our nelsh-
1 bors nre quiet," he said. "Greece has
, two lines of troops on Its frontier, It Is
true. These are the men serving their
regular period of military training, how
ever, and their presence on the frontier
ii not a matter of special significance.
"Sly Government has not informed ms
of tho departure of tho Greek Patriarch
from Constantinople, as reported. Be
cause 1 have not been directly notified ot "
so important a matter, and because It
seems Impossible that occasion could have
recently nilsen for trouble between the
Patrlnrch and tho Turkish Government.
I place no credence In the rumors. All
icliitlons between the Patriarch nnd tin
Tuiklsh authorities were broken off nearly
n sear ago."
