Fnnascs'i Warship* Proceeding- to the Scene of Hostilities—The Dic tator's Caa*e Said to Be Hopeless. amort* ted Press Dii Dutches. Rio dk Janeiro, Nov. 18. —From dis patches received today it is learned that the insurgents are fortifying the city of Rio Grande, and making preparations for repelling any advances made on tho place by the forces of Fonseca. The government has ordered troops to pro ceed to the city of Desterro, capital of the province of Santa Catharina, forty miles southwest of Rio de Janeiro. It contains the palace of the president of the province, and an arsenal, and is de fended by several forts. London, Nov. 18. —No confituation baa yet been received of the Exchange Telegraph company'sllio de Janerio ad vices yesterday, reporting that the navai and military offlcors stationed in Para had taken steps toward the declaration of the independence of that Btate. AFFAIRS IN UIO GRANDE. The most important news received today relates to affairs in the state of Rio Grande do Bat. This is given in a dispatch to the Times from Santiago de Chile. According to this the differences which have been interfering with per fect unity of action by the provisional junta now in authority in that state, are disappearing and the members of the junta are now acting in harmony. They made one of their number, Dr. A6sis Brazil, minister of war. Active meas ures are being taken to improve the de fenses and increase the effective strength of the array. The mouth of the Rio < irande, the principal river of the state, haa been obstructed by sinking two ships in the channel, and the river is protected by heavy artillery. Thejunta is in full control of the military stores in the state, and of the govern ment factory for making munitions of war. The provincial batiks and private persons are offering to furnish the junta with ample funds to carry forward the plans that may be decided on for main taining the independence of the state. WARSHIPS ON TDK WAY. The officers sent by the dictator to take the places of those who cast their for-' tunes with the insurgents in Rio Gtande do Sul, have arrived at Montevideo, and propoee to proceed at once to their des tination. They assert that several men of-war are now on the way to Rio Grande, and others are being made ready to follow. eonseca's cause is lost. Refugees from Rio de Janeifo who have reached Montevideo, express tho opinion that Fonseca will not be able to long maintain himself. Hie cause ia iost, they say. Only fear of mob vio lence, in their opinion, now restrains the discontented opposition at the Bra zilian capital from active steps against Fonseca. REVOLUTIONISTS REINFORCED. New York, Nov. 18.—The Herald's Buenos Ayres cable asserts that more towns in Rio Grande do Sul have joiued the revolutionists. Enlistments of soldiers are actively going on. Five vessels of the government fleet are re ported to have gone over to the junta, which has adopted for its flag a white and red globe. The other states in Brazil are quiet, and there is apparently no truth in the rumors of a revolt in Para. AN ARGENTINE REVOLT. San Luis, the capital of the Argentine provine of the same name, ia reported in a ferment. Soldiers patrol the streets and the governor's houae has been con verted into military headquarters. The Uruguay gunboat Artiguaa haa gone up the river to guard the interests of Uruguay's territory., THE REPUBLIC A FAILURE. A I-ale Arrival from Brazil Airs Hie Opinion*. New York, Nov. 18. —The steamship Earndale, from Rio de Janeiro, arrived at Brooklyn yesterday morning. The ship left before serious trouble began in Brazil, but the officers bring aome inter eating news. The Earndale aailed from Rio on the morning of October 24th, having been in port about two weeks. During that time there were no United Statea war vesaels in the harbor, but there were two British and one French cruiser. Of all the Brazilian men-of war in the Rio navy yard, only two appeared to be in commisaion, so the reports which had reached here of activity in the Brazilian navy, are very probably exaggerated. "The only trouble I know of," said one of the Earndale'sof ficera, "occurred the night of October Bth. A great crowd of medical atudenta gath ered in one of the theatera where a rather popular actreaa was the cause of a good deal of cheering and shouting. The police objeoted to the disorder and tried to put a atop to it. The reault waa a rush of students against the police, who drew their swords and pistols and fought the crowd. Several atudenta were killed and a number of com batants on both sides badly in jured. On the following night the police and atudenta again met in a row, resulting in the death of two of the latter, and a number of minor casualties. A young Englishman who happened to be passing down the street where the fight occurred, waa killed in stantly by a stray bullet. Aa the re sult of this riot mounted police patrolled the streets of the capital night and day, and after dark it was unsafe to go into the streets. The garrison waa not called on for assistance, probably be cause the army would have sided with the civilians. The soldiers hate the po lice. The latter are made up of the worat clasaeß. They are moa.ly ne groee." "Was there any political significance in this riot?" waa asked. "1 think the republican form of gov ernment haa not panned out aa they expected. There is a powerful faction desiring tbe reinstatement of the em pire. They want to put Dom Pedro or hia nephew on the throne. Since the fall of the empire prices of every com modity have doubled. The government has imposed a high tariff." The officer said further that it was the general opinion in Rio, that the govern ment would not last many months longer. He was not aurpriaed when he read of the revolutionary movement. CHILEAN ADVICES. Montt to Bo Chosen President Today by the Electoral College. New York, Nov. 18.—The Herald's Valparaiso cable says: The electoral college will hold a meeting in Santiago tomorrow and publicly choose Montt for president. A resolution has been intro duced in the chamber to award bim 70,000 molinas; to the newly appointed rear-admiral, 50,000, and to the aeveral captains of the navy 40,000 each, in rec ognition of their services in the late struggle. The cruiser Errazuriz sailed today from Uruguay for Valparaiso. Captain Schley, of the Baltimore, reporta the American seamen injured in the late fight sufficiently recovered to be able to testify, and aaka that an in terpreter chosen by himaelf be allowed by Judge Foster to be present, in ac cordance with the instructions of the secretary of the navy. EUROPEAN WAR CLOUDS. TROOPS MASSING ON THE POLISH FRONTIER. Russia, Austria and Germany All Con centrating Forces and Erecting Addi tional Barracks in the Same Locality. Russian Affairs. Vienna, Nov. 18.—Well founded re ports are current here that the Russian government has ordered 40,000 troops dispatched to the Polish frontier, and that the number of barrack huts in that region will be largely increased. In consequence it ia reported the Austrian government has ordered a large number of officers and men dispatched to strengthen the frontier guards. Berlin, Nov. 18.—The German war office has ordered a large number of portable tents manufactured for use in the eastern army corps, with a view to the protection of troops from inclement weather, in the event of war with Russia. London, Nov. 18.—The Standard's St. Petersburg correspondent says: Owing to the cooling of French enthusiasm for the Rusßian alliance, the Russian min ister of war has abandoned the project of purchasing new rifles, and has or dered the utmost dispatch in filling old old Beilin cartridges with smokeless powder. The seasoned regiments in Finland will be transferred to the Aus trian frontier, and recruits sent to Fin land. These measures are presumed to be due to tho Austrian emperor's recent alarmist speech. St. Petersburg, Nov. 18.—Owing to the exceptional severity of the weather, the government has given orders that work on the eastern portion of the Sibe rian railway shall be suspended for the present. As a measure of relief to many peasants in the famine-stricken districts, the government ib conaidering the advisability of engaging thouaanda of them to work in the construction of the Siberian road during the winter. The work of building the line will be reaumed as Eoon aa the weather moder ates suflicierftly. The czarowitz will shortly undertake supreme direction of the work of construction. It was made public today that in ac cordance with instructions received from Livadia, where the czar ia at present so journing, the issuance of the decree for bidding the export of wheat has been postponed until he returns to St. Petera burg in December. A Higli-Toned Wedding. VINCENTON, N. J., Nov. 18.—At 11 o'clock this morning Miss May Irick and George Washington Charles Drex el. youngest son of A. J. Drexel, the banker, were married in Trinity Episco pal church. Bishop Scarborough of New Jersey performed the ceremony, assist ed by the rector, Rev. Mr. Smith. The church, which had been recently redec orated and beautified, was adorned with chrysanthemums and rare exotics.

New York, Nov. 18.—A Bpecial from Buenoa Ayres says: A dispatch from the territory of Formoßa Bays a number of revolutionists from Paraguay sacked the residence of Governor Delgado. De termined resistance was made, and it is reported Delgado was wounded and aev eral of the chiefs of hia command killed. The country seems on the eve of another revolution. It is reported that the gar rison at Rosario, in Santa Fe province, has mutinied and taken charge of the town, because they were not paid. A Remarkable Verdict. San Francisco, Nov. 18. —Tbe inquest in the case of Lakrie A. Jenger, a young woman who died from the effect of a criminal operation, last week, resulted this afternoon in the verdict: "No evi dence to convict any one of crime." The verdict is very remarkable from the fact that the girl when dying wrote a statement, positively charging Dr. Hali with having performed the opera tion from whose effects the jury find her death resulted. A Flood of Florida Oranges. New Yobk, Nov. 18.—The great, crop of Florida orangea haa begun to flow into New York. The laßt steamer brought 15,000 boxes, and today the price touched $1.15 a box in the whole sale market. Strictly first-class fruis is higher. THURSDAY MORNING. NOVEMBER 19, 1891 -TEN PAGES. GOING TO PIECES. The Farmers' Alliance Rent With Dissensions. A Split in the Organization Seems Inevitable. The Convention at Indianapolis Is Almost a Fizzle. The Longer It Remain* iv Session the Farther Apart Are the Faction*. The Treasury Empty—No Pay for Delegates. Associated Press Dispatches. Indianapolis, Nov. 18.—The longer the Alliance remains in session, the farther apart grow the vigorous fac tions. It seems impossible to settle the various organizations down to any defi nite plan of action, or to any united policy. The third party fight ia in earneat, and every move is in more or leas direct reference to this main iasue. A split in the Alliance on the sub-treaa ury and land loan principles now deems inevitable. The open meeting of the Alliance this morning was a complete fizzle, and lasted but a few momenta. When the executive session opened, trouble over aub-treasury matter began. A commu nication waa received from the executive committee of the anti-sub-treaaury Alli ance, asking hearing for a protect pre pared by W. Pope Yeamans of Mis souri on instructions from the St. Louis conventiou of last September. The McCune faction oppoaed any hearing, but Livingatone of Georgia moved the appointment of a committee of five to read the protest and report to the Alli ance whether or not it ahould be read. On this motion, which was finally carried by a two-thirds vote, a bitter fight was made by the McCune men, who made the charge that the Georgia faction attempted to assaainate McCune in Mississippi. The difficulty over representation arose from the failure of the state sec retaries to report the falling off of mem bership which has occurred in various states, especially in Texas and Missis sippi, where there is great opposition to McCune and the auD-treosury plan. Thia neglect waa intentional, having been ordered by the national league on account of tbe detrimental effects such reports would have on the order. After the appointment of the commit tee to hear the protest of the anti-sub treaaury men, the convention adopted a resolution to atand by the sub-treasury plan. Liv ingstone's committee met McCallieter, Yeamans and others tonight, and listened to the reading of the protest. After it had been read Livingstone said: "Now, when you break down our relief plan,, what do you propose to offer aa a sub stitute." Mr. Yeamans replied that hia com mittee waa not empowered to frame a platform. It waa finally decided that Yeamans be allowed to appear before the Na tional Alliance tomorrow night, present the protest and elaborate thereon aa he desired, with the understanding that members be allowed to reply to him. McAllister will leave for Fort Worth, Texas, tomorrow, and from there will formulate a call tit a national meeting of the anti-sub-treasury Alliance men. Separate organizationa will be main tained all over the country. Before the adjournment of the execu tive session, significant action was taken which shows that the protest of the anti-sub-treaaury people will receive very little consideration. A resolution was adopted, almost unanimously, re affirming the adherence of the Alliance to every plank in the Roachdale plat form. McCune'a resolution to reduce the representation one-half will likely pass, and ia causing no end of uneasiness to delegates who came here with a narrow allowance of funds. It haa developed that the treasury is nearly empty, and unlesa the repreaentation ia reduced there will not be enough money to pay all the delegates. The Alliance has been falling off in many statea, and the atate Alliances have been unable to furnish their quota of the assessment to the national body. At the reform press association meet ing this morning it was decided to per mit members, who gave their adherence to the main principles of the Alliance, to advocate or oppose whatsoever minor ideas they please. TheF. M. B. A. was in secret session till 1 o'clock this afternoon on routine business. The Btate agents adopted thia morning the Roachdale pian which contemplates cash sales at Alliance stores, and divis ion of the profits among ita patrons. Thia ia regarded aa a black eye for the Union company. That portion of the executive commit tee of the People's party now here has been in almost continuous session. Its efforts are mostly directed toward the consolidation of the various industrial bodies, in the hope of getting the en dorsement of the third party idea at the February meeting. The F. M. B. A. IB having a hard time over the matter of funds. About half the organization ia delinquent, and there ia no money for the delegates. As a consequence the Ohio delegation left the houae at 1 o'clock, and many more threatened to leave thia afternoon and evening unless the matter waa adjusted. Aa no means of adjusting the matter have been presented it seems probable that the F. M. B. A. part of the proceed ings will soon come to an end. A local paper says that at today's session of the council, resolutions offered by Delegate Branch, of Georgia, created quite a fuse. They were polit ical in nature, declaring that a large number of men had been elected to con gress by Alliance votes, and demanding that they support no man for speaker who would not first declare for the Alliance platform; that Alliance con gressmen ahould nominate one of their own men and stick to him. They further admonished tbe Alliance men throughout the country to beware of committing themselves to any party in such a manner as to inter fere with their freedom of political ac tion, or taking any position in favor oi men or party not in sympathy with the Alliance principles. When the resolutions were introduced they were oppoaed in vehement speeches by Mr. Livingatone and cthera. The resolutions were finally referred to a committee. An effort to make the platform of the Alliance more radical on the subject of government ownership of railroad and telegraph lines also brought out a warm discussion, and the resolution went to the committee on legislative demands, with a prospect of a favorable report. The 850 Kate. San Francisco, Nov.lß.—The South ern Pacific company haß ieceived assur ances from the Chicago and Northwest ern railway that it will participate in the $50 rate for either or both of the national political conventions, if they should be held in San Francisco. As the Union Pacific haß made the same promise, there ia at least one line open lor the delegatea and alternates at the jrate desired. Vice-President Crocker «aid when the matter waa left to the Transcontinental association, he felt Jsure it would be voted down. The Ten Hie Association. Jf San Francisco, Nov. 18.—The execu tive committee of the traffic association today, after a long discussion, unani mously elected J. S. Leeds tra.hc man ager. He is expected to arrive here before the end of the present month. A .sufficient amount of money has been subscribed to pay the expenses of tho association for two years at least, and it is believed it can be made permanent. THE MINING CONGRESS. an important convention in session at denver. The Interests of a Great Wealth-Produc ing Industry Under Consideration. Delegates from Thirty-three States and Territories Present. Denver, Nov. 18.—The dedication of the El Dorado mining stock exchange building and the opening of the first na tional mining congress was celebrated here today. Thia morning there was a atreet parade in which miners and all interested in mining took part. There were also floats bearing mining machin ery in motion, and a great many tab leaux indicative of tin important fea tures of mining. At the dedication speeches were made by President Taylor of the mining exchange, Mayor Rogers of Denver and others. All the speakers advocated free and unlimited coinage of silver. In tbe afternoon the mining congress opened at the People'a theater, with ex- Governor Tabor in the chair. Delegatea from thirty-three atates and territoriea reported, and it waa understood Hon. "Nfles Searles, formerly chief justice of California, would be elected permanent chairman. The recommendation bas not yet been repoited. The greater part of tbe session was occupied by Senator Stewart of Nevada, who delivered a long address upon tbe Bilver question. He urged the congress to adopt resolutions that would compel the national houae of representatives to pasa laws restoring silver to a parity with gold. Resolutions favor ing the coinage of American product only, the senator said, would not ob tain twenty votes in the assembly. The gold ring has repudiated silver and they have reduced the issue of commercial paper to the narrow limits of gold. Aa a consequence the farmers are growing poorer, and the number of bank failures is being augmented. The circulation ia not enough to keep the bankß in reserve funds. Why ahould there be hard times with twenty years of peace? Why ahould timea be worse than at any other time in the century? The want of money was the cause. Secretary Sherman, said the senator, after a visit to England, and a confer ence with the gold bugs, returned home and surreptitiously incorporated in the bill a clause rejecting silver. If this had been done to gold it would not be worth twenty-five cents on the dollar. If it could not be used for money it would have no commercial value. But silver was univeraally circulated. It could not be deatroyed, but it could be depreciated. There waa no surplus bul lion in the world previous to 1890. The entire product waa uaed for com mercial purposes. Great Britain waa then constantly selling stiver. The interest payments of that nation were $80,000,000 annually, and were de rived from the aale of ailver. When silver went up last year England Bold twice as much as the requirements of the nation demanded, and they would do this as long as ailver remained a com modity. He protested against the long dollar. The country was being robbed. The middleman was growing rich and the producer was growing poorer because of the long dollar. Enough dollara could not be found to pay debts; hence atag nation and hard timea. After other addreaaes the convention adjourned until tomorrow. HEADQUARTERS MOVED. Railroad Offices, Etc., Removed From Tulare to Fresno. Fresno, Cal., Nov. 17.—Acting on tel egraphic ordera from San Francisco, the work of removing the division headquor tera from Tulare to thia city began to day, Carloads of furniture and office material were shipped from Tulare laat night, and thia evening twelve engineß were side-tracked here instead of going forward to Tulare. It was expected that the transfer would not be made before the Ist of Dec ember, but for Borne un known reason the Southern Pacific offi cials ordered an immediate change. The large roundhouse, which ia now build ing, will not be completed for a couple of weeka at leaßt, and in the meantime the engines must go unhoused.
