A military review and fetes were held in honoj of the occasion. The day passed quietly, the public taking little Interest in tbe celebration. The. situa tion in San Paulo is daily becoming more grave. CONFLICTING NEWS. London, Nov. lti, —News from Brazil continues of the most conflicting char acter, official dispatches from Rio de Janeiro asserting with unequivocal pos itiveness that the country is absolutely tranquil, while telegrams from Buenos Ayres and Santiago report Brazil torn with dissensions and secessions. The act ual facts will probably not be known until advices are received by mail. An official censorship prevents dis patches not appioved by the government from reaching Europe direct. It is not known how such dispatches reach Buenos Ayres and Chille. The latest official advices from Brazil say the troube in Rio Grande do Sul is purely local, and that the government of that state is now in the hands of a provisional junta. It is inferred from this that the author ities at Rio regard the junta in sympathy with the central government, but this theory is contradicted by dispatches from Santiago to the Times. These de clare that the provisional junta has taken absolute control, and assert that it has an army of 30,000 men, armed with rifles. It is short of artillery, and has but one war vessel, a river monitor, lightly armed. AN OFFICIAL DISPATCH. Washington, Nov. 16. —Sefior Men donca, Brazilian minister here, has re ceived the following by cable from the Brazilian minister of foreign relations, dated November 14th: "Affirm that complete tranquillity reigns in all the stales, except Rio Grande, where conflicts provoked by questions pertaining to local politics oc curred, with which, in virtue of the constitution, the federal government could not interfere. Deny rumors of the secession idea, which is condemned by all Brazilians. Af firm that no state thinks of seceding. Deny that members of the dissolved congress are in foreign lega tions as refugees. Nearly all the mem bers of congress have returned to their states. Those who remain here go about the city at liberty. Thus far the government has taken no violent meas ure. A day will be set for the next election, and congress will be convoked to meet immediately after. General Deordo will review the troops tomorrow, on the anniversary of the proclamation of the lepublie." The minister also received private in formation to the effect that the length to which the reported revolutionary movement in the state of Para went, was the adoption by the state assembly of a set of resolutions condemning the action of the president, and approving the course pursued by congress.

Large LOS ANGELES HERALD. as the subscriptions are, they are but a drop in the ocean of money that will be required to carry the thousands upon thousands of sufferers through the win ter. ALASKA FOB ALASKANS. Much Dissatisfaction With the Present System of Covernment. Chicago, Nov. Ift.—A special from Port Townsend, Wash., says advices from Alaska state the people up there are much incensed because congress has not taken notice of their desire for proper territorial government. An Alaskan newspaper in a recent issue suggests, in view of the injustice suffered from appointive officers, under succes- administrations, that, the people in convention,'prepare" a bill for a tev.". 101- '* 1 form of government, and demand X? approval by congress.

Remarks of His Cause a Panic on the Vienna Bourse—The Dreibund Think ing of Taking Advantage of Russia's Present Weakness. Vienna, Nov. 16.—Ata meeting of the budget committee today Count ICalnoky assured the committee that the em peror's speech, referred to by the Tagge blatt, ought to cause no uneasiness; that although the emperor drew.atten tion to the contradiction between the preparations for war and tbe talk of neace, the government hoped the prob lem would find a peaceful solution. Re ferring to Satuiday's panlc.be said the public dttTriot take a reasonable view of the situation. One serious word exag gerated to serve private end was suf ficient to evolve an unwarranted panic. He announced that the new commercial treaties would go into operation Febru ary 1, 18!)2. The Tageblatt today, notwithstanding the denials of its story published Satur day, to the effect that the emperor had declared the European situation criti cal, insists that its report was strictly correct. This report was at the bottom of the panic on the bourse Saturday. The holders of stocks and bonds, fearing the emperor's words presaged war, made a wild rnsh to sell, and the result was a decline not equaled in -many years. The Abende Post, having received in structions from the prime minister, is sued a statement declaring there was no truth in the Tageblatt's story. . The Tageblatt says the language of the emperor was drawn forth upon the occasion of an audience granted to the president of the Polish club. It reiter- ates that in the conversation that then took place, the emperor used the words attributed to him by the Tageblatt on Saturday, which in substance were that the famine which now prevails in Russia has greatly increased the chances of war. So confident is the Tageblatt in the re liability and truthfulness of the person who furnished the information which bad such serious results, that it has asked the public prosecutor to make a close and searching investigation as to the truth of the article. Kaluoky announces that the zollverein treaties would be discussed by the Aus trian and Hungarian delegations con jointly. St. Petersburg, Nov. 16. —Novosti de clares that the financial crisis in JBerlin has developed a political crisis; that the war party has gained the upper hand; that the prudent Bismarckian policy has been forgotten in the frantic desire to strike Russia in her moment of weak ness.

When the firemen arrived the building was filled with smoke and flames, but the men dashed in and aided a number of people to escape. The fire is still burning, and it is impossible to learn whether or not anyone is missing. It was reported at first that seven lives were lost, but this is thought to be exaggerated. It is feared, however, that some persons may have perished. The Blizzard's Breath. Chicago, Nov. 16. —Reports from South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, lowa and Illinois, say a general cold wave is prevailing; a blizzard is raging through Northern Wisconsin and Min nesota, accompanied by blinding snow.

TUESDAY MORNING. NOVEMBER 17, 1891—TEN PAGES. ALLIED FARMERS. A Remarkable Gathering at Indianapolis. Every Known Organization to Be Represented. Important Political Action to fle Attempted. President Polk Does Not ftelish the Ida* or Having Senator Stanford for a Yoke-Fellow—The Alli ance Programme. Amoclated t'temt DiiDalches. iNDiANAi'oi.irf, Nov. 10.— Every known organization of American farmers horn some sort of a meeting here this weak. One of the most interesting questions if. Shall the allied interests of these corf cams be merged into one ? Hundreds of delegates are already in the city.* Con gressman Jerry Simpson, who arrived today, speaks most favorably of the Alli ance outlook. President Perrell, of the Confederated Industrial Organizations, comprising the" Farmers' Mutual Benefit alliance, the Citizens' alliance, Knights of Labor and the National asjd of the objects of the meeting: "The purpose is to take action toward the unification of all labor interests; to adopt a platform that all tbe organiza tions in the confederation can stand op, I so that by united action, they may pro- ! cure the legislation they demand. The j question of combining with other labor j organizations, etc., will not be taken up until the February meeting." The hardest political light will bo made on the endorsement of the Peo ple's party by the Alliance, the con census of opinion of the delegates al ready here, being that the Alliance will not endorse the third party, bat will endorse that party whose platform most closely proclaims the, Alliance pria- j ciples. President Polk said that while the Al liance was opposing Cleveland it also op posed Blame, Harrison, Hill and any other man who did not advocate Alli ance principles. "By the way," be added, "No doubt you have heard of the great combination of Stanford and Polk for the head of the third party ticket. Why, Stanford would not get one Alli ance vote for constable. All these arti cles circulated, urging .Stanford for the presidency on the third partjfiicket, are paid boomers for him. Hiß circula tion uitl was a . pernicious measure and ■degraded the proposed currency f: i. the start." KNIGHTS OF I. A It OK. Interesting Resolutions Acted Upon at Toledo Yesterday.

A resolution demanding tbe closing of the world's fair on Sundays was re jected, the Knights declaring in favor of having the fair open on Sundays for the education of the masses, provided no one employed at the fair shall work more than six days per week. The assembly declined to endorse a resolution for the prevention of the sale of liquor on the world's fair grounds. The last resolution asked the endorse ment of the prohibition of the sale of alcohol, opium and other narcotics, and to raise the etandard of the law every where to that of Christian morals. Tlub was referred to a committee. At the afternoon session General Master Workman Powderly made a lengthy statement to the assembly with reference to the charges against him made by ex-Secretary Turner, iv various newspapers throughout the east yester day. Mr. Powderly vigorously denies all of the charges, and courts the fullest investigation of his every act. THK W. C. T. I . What the Ladles Are Doing to Over throw the Drink Habit. Boston, Nov. 10.—At the third day's session of the national and world's Woman's Christian Temperance unions this morning, the meeting was occupied in the discussion of the question what each of the departments of the educa tional group was doing to secure the formation of total abstinence habits and sentiment, and for the final overthrow of the drink system. Mrs. E. H. Ingalls reported on the work against narcotics. One dealer told her he sold more cigarettes to girls than to boys. The work this year will look toward the passage of a national law for bidding the manufacture of cigarettes. Opium is to be forbidden if possible. Mrs. Mary F. Lovett reviewed the work of the department of mercy.

New Yobk, Nov. 16.—The presbytery devoted today to the consideration of the report of the committee on revision, Dr. Briggs and his friends being on band. The professor succeeded in se curing one or two important amend ments to the report. In the course of the discussion he offered a substitute, which was adopted, as follows: "Infants dying in infancy, and other persons incapable of being called by the minis try of the Word, are regenerated and saved by Christ, throngh the Spirit which worketh when and where and how He pleaseth; also other persons who have not been called by tbe minis try of the Word." Section 4 was adopted to read: "Those persons who are called by the ministry of the Word, and yet resist the Holy Spirit and never truly come to Christ, cannot be saved; neither is there any salvation in any other way than by Christ, the Truth and the Spirit." Further consideration was postponed for a week. A BULLET IN BLS BKAIN. Tim Cashier of (be Suspended Cheyenne Itanh Suicides. CiiKViiXKK, Wyo., Nov. 10.—George A. Beard, cashier of the suspended Chey enne National bank, sent a bullet into his brain this morning. He was in con sultation the greater part of yesterday with Examiner Griffith and the attorney of the bank. During the interview he seemed despondent and spoke of rumors circulated about him, asking if the others thought best that he should deny them, bnt they said : "Pay no attention to the stories; time will indicate your course." He spent the evening at a club and on going to his room appeared to have forgotten his troubles. As he did not respond when called this morning the room was forced open and he was found with a bullet wound behind the right ear, dead. There are now beginning to eaist fears about the bank's condition, which, how ever, appears solvent. Collins, the president, owes $25,000, and Beard had endorsed this. CALIFORNIA'S DEMAND. A PLACE IN THE NEXT PRESI- DENT'S CABINET. Be Ho Republican, Democrat or Any Other Persuasion,, the Interests of This Coast Require That He Should Have a California Adviser. Chicago, Nov. 16.—M. H. De Young, proprietor of the San Francisco Chroni cle, who arrived in the city today, said in an interview with a reporter this evening: "Business men of San Fran cisco have authorised me to make any promises to the national committee I may see fit, pledging themselves to carry those promises out, if tbe convention be given our city. We have already agreed to pay the railroad expenses of all the ' delegates to the coast, and return. We will do a great deal more which I don't care to make public yet." "San Francisco," continued Mr. De Young, "has no candidate to force on the convention in case she secures it, but there is one thing the coast will expect of the next administration, whether it be Republican or Democratic —a place in the cabinet. The reason is purely a business one, entirely apart from politics. The entire coast suffers from lack of acquaintance with its needs. There are a thousand things of vital im portance commercially to the coast, up on which no oue in the east, no matter how well informed, can properly give advice to the president. Among many such questions are depert lands, the Bering sea fisheries. Hawaiian and Australian trade and communication, and our coast defences. Few realize the exact nature of the latter. In their present condition a few Chilean ships could blow San Francisco to pieces." WASHINGTON NOTES. The President Pardons a Convict aud Goes Duck Shooting. Washington, Nov. 16.—The president left here this afternoon for Benjiers, Md., where he will spend two or three days duck shooting. He is accompanied by ex-Senator Sewall of New Jersey.

Acting Indian Commissioner Belt has a telegram from Captain Penny, acting agent at Pine Ridge, reporting the arrival of Bear Eagle's party. In his opinion they mean no mischief. They express discontent with the treatment at their agency. He has advised them to return and make application for a transfer. He says discontent is mani fested by all the visitors from Cheyenne River agency, and asks that the matter be looked into. The treasury department has been in formed of the arrest, at Watertown, N. V., of four Chinamen, who were making an attempt to cross the Canadian bor der. The inspector at Ogdensburgb, N. V., in reporting the case, says he has information of the existence of a con spiracy to smuggle several hundred Chinamen into the United States from Canada, and he is endeavoring to secure evidence against the alleged conspira tors. Chicago's Mayor Censured. Chicago,, Nov. 16.—8y a vole of 32 to 29 the city council decided to receive and refer to the committee on police, remonstrances of the trade and la bor assembly, denouncing Mayor Wash burne and Chief of Police McClaughry, for breaking up the Greif's hall meeting of alleged anarchists, and police inter vention at the Turner hall gatherings, the night previous.
