IBOgT OF THE WAR
The Brazilian revolution, which thii
action of Admiral Da Gains will in all
probability bring to a close, began on
the night of September 5. 1898, when
Admiral de Melio attempted to repeit
the coup da main by wnioh he had
driven President da Fonaeca from
power. While the high government
officials were at the opera he seized all
the brezilian war vessels in the harbor
of Rio de Janeiro and demanded
President Peixoto's resigned in, Mello
tbongbt the President would abdicate
without a straggle, but, instead, he
immediately began preparations to
bring the rebels to termi. Congress
backed up President Peixito. Al
though tne rebels had the Seat, con
sisting of twenty-.'our battleships, tor
pedo boats and armored coasting steam
ers, the principal forts which formed
defences of the harbor of Rio remained
Mello, on Sept. JO sent an ultitna
tnm to the citzens of Rio. He declar
ed tbat if thy did not surrender the
city at once bo would recommence the
bombardment and level it to the
ground. No attention was paid to this
communication, an t on Sept 24 th,
ships reopened fire. The bombard
ment lasted all day sad was continued
the next and the next.
A reian of terror followed, Banks
snd business places were stint up. and
them was a great rush for the country.
No attempt was made by the insurgents
to destroy the city, but in the fire that
was aimed at the various governme&t
buildinga vaataarnxge was done in ev
ery part of the eity. Bursting shells
carried destruction into th streets, end
many hundreds were killed and
wounded. Discontent was general in
the city, and Mello was counting on a
popular uprising in his interest as n
zonserjusnce of the bombardment.

Ex-Premier Goblet, Radical-Socialist
for the First district ot Paris, supported
Bourgeois. He violently attacked the
government for its administration of
the police and its readiness to ignore
all great national issues while dealing
with some passing emergency. All sen
sible men. he said, had grown tired of
goveramjnt by policy. The people had

was little or no excitement at the Gay

were bnt a few curiosity seekers pres

stench that assailed them nearly all
day. They expected to reach more of
the bodies, but had to quit work for n
time late this afternoon as they could
not stand the odor.
The night shift oams out of the mine
at 11 o'clock tonight, reporting that
vary little headway had been made
since noon today. As fast as they can
remove the debris the roof continues to
fall and the propping up goes very
