VOL. 37.—N0. 25. SUD AMERICAN NEWS Progress of the Revolution in Brazil. The Revolt Successful iv Rio Grande do Hui. Fonseca Displaying Great Energy in Massing: Troops. Chile Is Preparing for War hut the Feel ing Against Americans Is Toned Down—Disturbances In Buenos Ay res. Associated Press Dispatches. New Yobk, Nov. 14.—The Herald has theae telegrams: Valparaiso, Chile. Nov. 13.—News is received here to the effect that the re volt against Fonseca in the state of Rio Grande do Hui has been so far com pletely successful. In one light, in which 5000 men weie engaged, it is re ported the government troops, under Gen. Isadora Gonales, were defeated, and the insurgent cavalry started to move toward tbe north. It is also re ported that Gov. Castilho, of Rio, has decided to join the insurrectionary movement. The revolutionists claim that tbe dictator is so sick that he finds it impossible to continue the campaign with any degree of activity. These statements are evidently made by the enemies of Fonseca, however, for news comes frtjm Rio Janeiro that he is displaying great energy in his efforts to crush the revolt. He is massing troops and preparing warßhips for an early at tack on the revolutionists. He has ap plied to the government of Uruguay for permission to allow the passage of troops through that country, in order to reach the state in which the uprising is, Rio Grande do Sul. Uruguay, it is said, has granted the permission re quested. The revolt now involves all the towns of the entire state, with the exception of Porto Alegre. Of the entire navy, only the gunboat Camoen has taken up the cause of the revolution. The re mainder of the navy has continued faithful to Fonseca. In all probability there will be a crisis here before the end of the week, for it is expected that the forces sent by the dictator will reach the borders of the state by that time. DISTURBANCES IN BUENOS AYRES. Serious disturbances are reported at the polls at the election in Buenos Ay res •yesterday. The elections resulted de cidedly in favor of the radicals, irrianii chile pbepaiung fob w.ut. Many surprises are current about the heavy purchases of Mannlichcr rifles by the Chilean government. It is the gen eral impression that the purchases indi cate that the government anticipates trouble in the near future, and that war is not improbab'e. THE CHILEAN CABINET. There is a general understanding in Chile, though not officially announced, that Admiral Montt will appoint two Conservatives as councillors. This leaves tho Liberals a majority of three in the oouncil, but it is satisfactory to Henors Walker Martinez and Irrarazabel, and they have withdrawn their resignations. It is thought Sefior Altimorarg will be called upon to form a cabinet when Montt has been formally installed as president. KEELING TONED DOWN. Judge Foster is making all due haste in the investigation into the recent at tack on the Baltimore's sailors. There seems to be every disposition to bring the investigation to a close as quickly as possible, and the feeling against Ameri cans has toned down in a marked de gree. Captain Jenkins, of the steamer Keewanaw, was examined by Judge Foster relative to the alleged assault on Fireman Patrick Shields, of his ship. Captain Jenkins was assured that a thorough investigation of the case would be made, and if it were proven that po lice committed the assault, they would be punished. NOT A SPY. Admiral Brown Officially Denies the Charges Against Him. Washington, Nov. 13.—1n view of the repeated statement that Admiral Brown or some of his ship's company informed Balmaceda's government of the landing of the Congressionalist forces at Quin tero, last August, Secretary Tracy seized the opportunity afforded by thepresence of the admiral with the San Francisco at Acapulco, Mexico, a few days ago, and addressed the following telegram to him: Washington, Nov. 10. To Admiral Brown: Did you invite any Chilean officer ac companying you on board San Francisco to witness landing of Chileans at Quin tero? Did you or any officers of your crew, on return on that occasion to Val paraiso, communicate information as to what you saw to any person not con nected with your vessel ?. (Signed) Tbacy. Admiral's Brown's reply was as fol lows ; Acapulco, Nov. 10. To tht Secretary of the Navy, Washington:. Did not invite or take any Chileans. Invited foreign officers. Only German went. No one from ship gave informa tion. Full information about landing known at Santiago and Valparaiso be fore I sailed at noon. (Signed) Brown. In addition to the foregoing positive statements by Admiral Brown, he dis tinctly says in his report to the depart ment, dated August 31st, that he was informed before he sailed for Valparaiso that the Congressional forces had effect ed a landing. SAILINO OBDGRB. The Concord Ordered to Join the South Atlantic Squadron. Washington, Nov. 13.—Orders were sent from the navy department today to New York for the United States steamer Concord to sail at the earliest practi cable day for the West Indies, to join tbe Philadelphia and Kearsarge. An authoritative denial is made at the navy department of the published state ment that Admiral Gherardi has been ordered to Chile, and that he is to re lieve Admiral Brown of the command of the Pacific station. It is said Admiral] Gherardi is under orders to cruise in the West Indies, where he will be joined by the Concord: that the Atlanta is to no to Rio, and that no other orders to vessels have been issued. Orders have been sent from the navy department today to the U. 8. S. Petrel, at San Lucia, to proceed direct to China via the Suez canal. An Italian Canard. Washington, Nov. 13.—1t is learned at the department of state that there has been no correspondence with the Italian government upon the subject of the killing of Italians in New Orleans, since last spring, and consequently the statement that the United States gov ernment has acknowledged its liability for the affair, and agreed to pay indem nity, is not borne out by facts. LONDON CABLE LETTER. THE CONSERVATIVES' DEFTLY CON TRIVED PLATFORM. Lively Bidding for the Labor Vote—Star vation Wages in the Textile Trades. Defects in the British Navy's Big duns. An Orleanist Conference, Etc. London, Nov. 13—[Copyrighted by the New York Associated Press.J—The executive committee of the Conservative association has drafted a platform to be adopted at the great party caucus at Birmingham, the 23d inst. The leading proposal concerns Ireland. The confer ence will be asked to endorse the inten tion of the ministers to extend local government and promote technical edu cation in Ireland. At the same time it is declared that the inequalities arising from according to Ireland a dispropor tionate representation in parliament ought to be redressed. The other im portant planks provide for the extension of the franchise to women who are land owners or house occupants ; thecreation of a labor department under a member of the cabinet, and legislation to enable local authorities to acquire land to facil itate the creation of small rural hold ings. Aid as further concession to labor representation, the Conservatives are urged to support the labor candidates everywhere who appeal to enter public life upon no party lines. This plank, contrasting with the Liberal pronouncement against labor candidates in purely labor inter ests, is deftly contrived to encourage a split in tbe radical workmen's vote. A resolution proposed by Howard Vincent, an eager advocate of an im perial federation, and who has just re turned from America full of wrath against the McKinley .law, favors a preferential tariff throughout the Brit ish empire. STARVED WORKMEN. Startling evidence has been laid be before the labor commission in regard to the condition of the operatives in the textile trades in Lancashire and Yorkshire. Of the workers' scant wages, ranging from 10 shillings weekly, up ward, a system of relentless fines for spoiled material and petty causes, absorb a large percentage. A single fine sometimes absorbs a whole week's pay. Many workmen live in a state of semi starvation. The "truck" abuse, sup posed to have been suppressed, is still iv active existence, and the factory acts are actively defied. DKKECTB IN GREAT GUNS. The British admiralty is much excited over the growing record of defects in great guns on English warships. Five vessels have recently been officially de clared to be carrying unreliable guns. In the 11-ton gun of the ironclad Ben Bow, which has been in commission only a few weeks, a crack developed in the inner tubes after firing a few rounds of 9<io pounds each, the service full charge. Similar accidents happened to the guns of the Victoria and Sanspareil. Generally these heavy weapons are be coming distrusted, and the admiralty has ordered that a number of them be taken to the ordnance works to be strengthened. Meanwhile the seventy five-ton guns of the French fleet are acting perfectly. AN INTKRESTING CONTROVERSY. Political clubs are interested in the controversy raised by T. P. O'Connor in accusing Mr. Stuart, M. P., of organiz ing the split in the Parnellite party by injudicious haste in publishing Glad stone's November letter to Parnell. O'Connor's abuse of Stuart, who suc ceeded him as the manager of the Lon don Star, haa led to the disclosure that Arnold Morely, the Liberal whip, gave to the press the letter referred to, under authority of Gladstone. THE DUKE OF ORLEANb'S TROUBLE. Le Due la Tremouille and Due de No aillee, prominent Orleanists, have ar rived at the Sheen house for a confer ence with Le Comte de Paris, in regard to the charges against LeDuc d'Orleans, in connection with the Melba divorce case. Le Due d'Orleans persists that his relations with Mine. Melba have been purely Platonic. The French dis cuss the case as a matter that does not affect the political prospects of the Or leanists. English papers give almost no attention to the case. A CURE FOR "ROARING." The race horse Ormonde, in which an English syndicate invested £42,000 in re buying him from an Argentine stud breeder, was recently offered to tbe British government. Cbaolin, president of the board of agriculture, declined to accept Ormonde, on the ground that he was a "roarer." This response has raised public discussion beyond horse breeding circles, especially in view of the fact that the horse Golden Plume won the race at Liverpool yesterday, after undergoing the operation of trache otomy for the cure of "roaring." Golden Plume has the silver pipe in his throat, through which the trachea is visible. The pipe is secured in the throat by a turned edge. The horse breathes through the tube with the ut most freedom. SATURDAY MORNING. NOVEMBER 11, 1891.—TEN PAGES. BANKS IN DISTRESS. San Diego's Great Financial Sensation. Confidence In President Col lins Not Impaired. Los Angeles Capital Prevented a General Panic. Agent Sims Makes a Proffer of British Oold-Baird, the Madera Bank- Wrecker, Arrested in San Francisco. AssoclatcdrPress Dispatches. San Diego, Nov. 13.—The suspension of the California National bank contin ues to be the absorbing theme of con versation. There were no new sensa tional developments today. There is no disposition to lay any particular blame on anybody, and there is tonight a very general feeling that the situation is im proving. The three other banks met all demands with their usual promptness all day, and there is nothing to indicate that any failures will follow the Califor nia bank's trouble. CONFIDENCE IN COLLINS. J Public confidence in J. W. Collins, president, and S. G. Havermale, one of the best-known directors, is very great, and the people believe that between them and the many friends of the em barrassed institution everything will be brought around all right. There was nothing in the nature of a run on any of the other banks during the day, and the result is that the public mind is comparatively eaßy. LOS ANGELES TO THE RESCUE. During the night a special train ar rived from Los Angeles with a large sup- Ely of coin with which to fortify the anks here. The presidents of the Los Angeles banks were in the city all day, investigating the local banks, and can vassing the situation generally. They pronounced all three institutions in a perfectly sound condition, and they went north this evening, confident that nothing further will happen to seriously complicate the situation. It is certain beyond any doubt, that the depositors will not lose a dollar. BRITISH BACKING PROFFERED. Bank Examiner W. H. Chamberlain arrived this evening and will begin an investigation tomorrow. A very good feature of the situation is that George V. Sims, of the Lombard Trust company of London, who came to this city to look about for investments for his company, and who expected to become in several matters with President Col lins, examined the bank today and de clares that if Bank Examiner Chamber lain will give him authority to dc so he will bring out money enough from New York and London to re-establish the bank on a soander basis than ever. SUED BY HIS DAUGHTERS. Bens»tional Salts Filed Against Judge Clinton Hastings. San FttANcisco, Nov. 13. —Two suits were filed today against Judge S. Clin ton Hastings, a millionaire and founder of the Hastings's law school, by Samuel M. Shortridge, as attorney for Hast ings's daughters. Ella Hastings alleges that her father recently, in a surrepti tious way, had her judged mentally in competent by the superior court of Lake county, and got himself appointed her guardian, so as to get possession of all her property. She petitions to be restored to her legal capacity, to be ad judged sane and competent to take care of herself and her property, and also prays that her property be restored, and that her father be required to render final account. Mrs. Catherwood, an older daughter, owns a ranch in Napa county, which her father has been man aging for her. His management has evidently not been satisfactory to the owner, for she sues him for $1200 for 100 tons of grapes, and for $1200 rent for the house on the place for one year. BAIRD'S RASCALITY. Some of His Forged Paper Hypothe cated In Loi Angeles. Fresno, Nov. 13. —The rascally trans actions of T. Baird, late vice-president and cashier of the Bank of Madera, con tinue to come to light. While there were originally about 880 shares of bank stock issued, there have already been presented over 1000 shares of fraudulent stock. The over-issue is held in this city, Los Angeles and by the Pacific bank in San Francisco. Major Bone brake, of Los Angeles, holds $11,000 worth of notes hypothecated with his bank, and several notes have been found which Baird raised from $10 to $1000, and $15 to $1500. The Consoli dated bank of Eleinore may yet gauffer severely on account of Baird's rascality. San Francisco, Nov. 13.— W. F. Baird was tonight arrested at the Palace hotel, on telegraph orders from Madera. The charge is forgery. Baird refuses to talk on the subject. ANARCHISTS A KRAI ON KU. The Reds Arrested Thursday Night In Chicago Given a Hearing. Cuicaoo, Nov. 13.-- Seventeen alleged Anarchists arrested at last night's meet ing, were arraigned in the justice's court this morning. The complaints against them are, some for resisting offi ce :s, others for carrying concealed weapons and for disorderly conduct. Several police officers were examined and their evidence was practically the same as the story of last night's arrests. In the afternoon the examination of the defendants began. Only four of tßeni were gotten through with before adjournment. The line of the defense is to prove that the meeting last night had no connection with any anarchistic movement whatever, being merely a regular business meeting of the Socialist Publication company. This evening a bill was filed in the circuit court by Thomas Grief to restrain the mayor or police from entering upon his premsses or interfering with any meetings held in his hall. The case will come up temorrow. Both Mayor Washburne and Chief McClaughry ad vance the belief that the object of the meeting last night was not to commit any direct acts of violence, but to keep up an anarchistic agitation to convince foreigners that Chicago will not be a safe place to come to in the world's fair year. Mayor Washburne said these in cendiary utterances must be stopped, for they are likely to do Chicago incal culable injury, giving the city a bad teputation, and possibly keeping mill ions of capital away, besides seriously damaging the world's fair. The mayor said biß policy will be to suppress with a firm hand all meetings held to advo cate anarchistic principles. Anarchists, he said, made remarks in their speeches recently which justify the conclusions he has drawn. They all hate Chicago, and cry for revenge on it because of the execution of their leaders here four years ago. Buckley in Winter Quarters. Chicago, Nov. 13. —A special from Montreal says Christopher A. Buckley has apparently established himself there for the winter, and shows no dis position to leave. A RUSSIAN SENSATION. SUBJECTS OF THE CZAR VARY THE MONOTONY. A Widespread Conspiracy for Representa tive GrOvernment—Members of the No bility Implicated —Numerous Arrests Made — Students Under Surveillance. Berlin, Nov. 13. A widespread con spiracy to create a representative as sembly has been discovered in Russia. Moscow is the center of the movement. Advices from St. Petersburg state that tho authorities there are becoming more and more suspicious, as the internal situation of the empire continues to grow more critical. There is consider able uneasiness regarding the status of affairs throughout the empire, and as a result of this- feeling, the marshals of the nobility exercising power and re siding in different parts of the coun try have been warned that they will be held responsible for any manifesta tion of political feeling against the gov ernment which may occur in the pro vinces or the local administrations under their control. London, Noy. 13.—Some surprise was expressed in this city upon the receipt of a dispatch today, announcing that extraordinary activity was being dis played by the Russian government in connection with internal disturbances in the empire. It was thought at first that the government's action was due to the troubles arising from the scarcity of food in many districts of Russia, as for some days past dispatches have been srraceived depicting the terrible sufferings of the starving peasants. Many acts of lawlessness have been commited by men rendered desperate by the pangs of hun ger, and the statement made that the marshals of the nobility would be held to strict accountability' for any political disturbances in their districts, was taken to mean that the starving peasants and small farmers were assuming a threat ening attitude. A dispatched received this evening, however, puts all specula tion to flight. A short time ago it came to the knowl edge of the police that a conspiracy was under way. While secretly pursuing investigations in St. Petersburg the police found that the conspirators in that city were only part of a numerous band, the headquarters of which was located in Moscow. They learned also that the conspirators had been very active in securing adherents to their plan, and that the conspiracy had rami fications which spread to all the princi pal parts of the empire. The object of the conspiracy, unlike the majority of the plots discovered in Russia, was not to kill the czar, but was the organization of a movement having for its end the creation of a representa tive assembly—an object which has been the dream of many years. Sixty members of the nobility and of the upper and middle classes charged with complicity in the movement have been arrested. The students in all the uni versities are under strict surveillance. The discovery of the plot and the ar rest of many prominent subjects has caused a decided sensation in Rassia. CABLE FLASHES. The protocol of a treaty of commerce between Germany and Italy has been signed. The Austrain government will shortly abolish the piohibition of the importa tion of pork into Auslro-Hungary. A dispatch from Essen, one of the towns in the great coal-producing dis trict of Germany, reports a terrible explosion of fire damp, by which eleven miners were killed arid two others in jured. The international peace congress at Rome adopted resolutions in favor of partial military disarmament; tbe crea tion of an international tribunal of arbi tration, and the establishment at Berne of a permanent international peace bu reau. Influenza is claiming many victims in Posen, and the disease is spreading very rapidly. It has made its appearance in the northern suburbs of Berlin, and al ready the cases amount to a great num ber. " Many deaths are reported. Mexican Customs Reformed. Washington, Nov. 13.—The bureau of American republics has received notice of a decree recently issued by the presi dent of Mexico removing many arbi trary restrictions from the custom house at the City of Mexico. The decree pro vides that foreign merchandise paying duty on entering the country at the frontier or maritime custom houses shall not be subject to further taxation beyond 5 per cent consumption tax, calculated on the amount of the_ import duties, on being introduced into the federal district.
