LISBON. Oct. 7.?The establish I
ment of a republic in Portugal is anj
accomplished fact. For a country!
that just passed through the throes
ot a bloody revolulijn and sustained
? bombardment, Lisbon today is in \
doudless sunshine and wears a re-!
ma:kably smiling aspect.
The Republican flag flatters on
nearly every building and from ever*"
vehicle in the streets which are
thronged, shops and offices have been
re opened and business generally has
been resumed. The only evidence of
the recent perturbations are small
bodies of troops stationed in the Man
cipal open spaces of tbe city and the
passage now and then of Red Cross'
King's Pictures Removed.
The noticeable outward signs of the|
new regime are the presence every- ]
where of the green and red flag of
the republic and the complete aaenp-1
pearance of King Manuel's portrait .
from public exhibition. In fJH. not .
a vestige is now seen of the pict/re .
jiost card portraits of the king or of ?
any other member of the royal fam-1
lly. These have given way to pie-'
tures of members of the new govern-1
n-ent and the photographic records of |
the revolution in the shape of groups j
ot armed leaders and companies of I
insurgent troops not in Action, bm
posing for the camera.
The damage done to tbe city be
the bombardment was surpcesinglv
slight. On the journey down to Lis?
bon from the frontier one heard at
each stopping of the train, blood
curdlinc tales of thousands of person*
having been killed and whole quarters
of tbe city having been devastated or
wi|ied out. The total number of kill?
ed has not yet been definitely ascer?
tained, but it probably does not ex
reed three hundred. A couple of ho?
tels near the station bear traces of
having been struck by shells and bill
let marks. There is no unusual ex?
The recent events which startled
the world are discussed by all classes
with phlegmatic calm.
