States of JBrilj, oonltutlnft ;
federal republlo 01 " the different prov
inoes of the empire over whloh Dom
Pedro had ruled to long, la an estab
lished government The new republlo
Is to-day acknowledged by every prov
ince. J)om Podro U on hla way to Portu
gal, having accepted the situation with
no attempt at forcible resistance. The
flag of the new republlo has been adop
teo and Brazil Is as peaceful as though
no thought of revolution had ever
aroused the feelings of her people. The
overthrow of the empire has been ac
complished without the saoriQoe of a
single life, and the new provincial gov
ernment Is proceeding with Its work as
methodically and peacefully as though
It had been in existence for years in
stead of hours. - t ' ! .
- Dom Pedro submitted to the torms im
posed on him by the new government,
.and agreed to leave the oountry within
twenty-four hours after he received the
notioe at his summer palace at Petropo
Us, He was offered $2,500,000 In cash
-and provisions for the rest of his life in
the form of an annual pension of $450,
000, which is to be provided for In the
civil list of the new republlo. , Ho
nromntly accepted the offor and came to
Elo de Janeiro with bis family to em
bark for Lisbon. - The imperial family
on Sunday boarded the Brazilian gun
boat Paranhyba, whloh was still flying
the imperial flag in the harbor. The
Paranhyba transferred the Imperial
party to the Alagoah, which soon
steamed out of the harbor bound for Lis
bon. Dom Pedro and his family go into
perpetual exile, their absence from the
country being regarded by the leaders
of the republlo as essential to the peace
and welfare of the new government.
On the morning of the revolution th
city awoke to hear the proclamation T
the republlo of the United States of Bra
ill. Senhors Fonseca, Constant and
others proceeded to Petropolls on Friday
morning and Informed the Emperor that
he was dethroned. Dem Pedro was calm
and dignified , and listened quietly to
what his visitors had to say. Sonhor
Fonseoa acted as spokesman and said:
"Brazil has advanced In civilization
enough to dispense with mouarchy. The
countrv is irrateful for the Emperor's
patriotism, but has insisted on a repub
llo." - Dom Pedro replied with dignity, de
clining to abdicate. lie would yield to
force, out would not renounce the throne
voluntarily.
It Is reported that the impending rev
olution was known to several financial
houses in Vienna two days prior to its
occurrence.
The new flag of the United States of
Brazil, whloh takes the place of the im
perial emblem with Its crown and coffee
real, Is composed of green and gold
stripes with a blue field, on which are
. emblazoned nineteen stars. Mo lives
have been lost in the revolution, and the
onlr vlolonoe attempted was the shoot
ing of the Imperial Minister of Marine,
who is now recovering. . Business In Bio
was suspended only twenty-four hours,
and an empire was destroyed and, a re
public born almost before the general
publio was aware that anything was
going on. The now Cabinet is composed
of men who have the confidence of tho
people. The leaders are representative
. Brazilians. President Fonseca is rocog-
nizea as a uravo soiuier ana nonesi citi
zen. Barbazo, Minister of Finance, is
able and honest, though poor, liocayuva.
Minister of Foreign Affairs, is a jour
nalist and a popular leader.
Washisotok, Nov. 19. Nothing has
been received at the State Department
concerning the revolution In Brazil since
Friday, when Consul (Jeneral Dockery's
brief cable announcing the change of
government was received. The failure
to receive additional Information leads
the department offlolals to think that
the cabtea have been seized, else upon
sontatlves of the United States would
have kept the Government advised of
the progress of events. Among navy offi
cers no surprise was expressed at the
. news of the revolution. Commodore
Ramsay, Chief of the Bureau of Navijpt
tlon, said that twenty years ago, when
he was in Brazil, there was a general
feeling that when Dom Pedro's reign
ended a republican form of government
would be Instituted. Lieutenant Barry,
whe only recently returned from Bra
til, says that theohange whioh has come
to pass was openly talked of among Bra
zilians as probable to occur, and they
expected It at any time. To the people
of Brazil he said It could not appear to
have been sudden.

a
A Bad SUM Mad of It by Several Friend
of the Aeeueed on Croat-Examination
Some Queer Statement. ' '; .V ,',.'
Chicago, Nov. 19. Frederick Squibb,
the stenographer who too'i tha report of
the testimony at the inquest, was the
first witness in the Cronln case yestar-
!ay. lOn'orots-eximinatlon he testified
hatx'Wjor" Bampson bad said at the .
Inquest that he had known Dan Cough-'
lin for some time previous to the .time .
the latter approaohed hint to "slug" Dr.
Cronln. Peter Koch, a hard wood fin
isher, who lives at Lake View, was then
called. Witness said he had known Joba
Kunse for twb or three years. Kunze
had worked tot him some time, and
boarded at his house. He left his em
ploy between April 8 and 11. Witness
was then asked if he knew Thomas
Lynch, and If Lynch bad spoken to him
about Kunze. Mr. Uynes objected.
Forrest then explained that he wanted
to show that the conversation was about
the explosion of the bomb In Lynoh's
distillery. "Lynch and Coughlin," con
tinued Mr. Forrest, "went together to
Koch's house after Kunze. They took
blm out, got him drunk and took two
papers from hlra. They wanted a third,
but Kunze said he would not take $1,000
for it. Tho next day Coughlin and Lynch
went to Koch's again and got Kunze.
The next day this witness drove Kunze
from his house and the latter went to
the South Side and changed his name.
The papers were supposed to relate to
the bomb explosion at the Lynch dis
tillery." This was brought out to show
why Kunze changed his name, and that
he feared arrest because of certain mat
ters relative to the distillery case.
The court decided that Kooh's tostl
money was regular and he went on to
testify that he had seen Coughlin and
Kunze together on several occasions. On
one of them Coughlin got Kunze drunk
and tried to take from Mm two papers.
They bad a scuffle and Coughlin suc
ceeded. The papers were a letter and a
telegram from Barrows, the whisky
truHt man. Kunze 1 remarked at the
time that he had another paper, but
would not give it up for $1,000. Wit
ness was further examined with ihe
view to showing that it was Lynch, the
millionaire distiller, that was seen with
Kunze on Lincoln avenue, and that this
was April 8 instead of May 4.
- Captain Sohaack was recalled, but re
fused to give the defense his notes of
the description given him by Dinan of
the man who had hired his white horse,
on the ground that they were, his pri
vate property. The ex-Captain was aa
unwilling witness and soon became
choleric He denied that his first state
ments regarding what he had been told
by Mrs. Conklin and Dlnan differed from
his last, and his evidence .was of but lit
tle benefit to the dofense. .1
James Hyland, ar laborer, swore that
on Sunday night, May 5, he and hla
cousin Jeremiah called at O'Sulllvan'i
bouse at seven o'clock, went out to a sa
loon and had several glasses of wine.
The witness greatly resembled Cough'
lin, and the purpose of the testimony'
was to show that it was Sunday night
that the men were seen in the saloon bj
witness Niemann, and that the men h
took to be Coughlin and Kunze were the
Uylands.
Joremiah Hyland was the next wit
ness and his testimony was substantially
the same as that given by his cousin,
the preceding witness. Kunze was oallej
up to stand by the witness' side to afford,
the jury an opportunity of noticing thq
likeness between the two. Thoy worV
about the same height. On cross-exami
lnatlon tho witness said that last week,
when he read it In the papers, was the,
first time he remembered being Jn the
saloon mentioned by himself and hii
oousln, and ho had not been in it sine.
May 5 except last Sunday night
Mlko Whalen, the ex-detectlve and
partner of Dan Coughlin, was noxtcallod
and testified that on the night of May i
he was at the Chicago avenue station
from eight o'clock until midnight. From
eight till ten witness saw Coiighlln sev,
eral times, and at no time up to the last
mentioned hour was Coughlin out of huj
sight for more than half an hour. Th
witness, togother with Coughlin and
Sergeant Stlft, wen into Gleason'l
saloon and had a drink. He Was very
positive as to the date from tho fact that
on that day he attended the funentl oj
an old friend and in tho evening b
learned of the promotion of Lieutenant
Brennan, of the Chicago avenue station,
to be secretary of poloe.
On cross-examination Whelan said h
did not tell the coroner's jury that the
last time ho saw Coughlin on the nlghi
of May 4 was seven o'clock. On the
contrary he was with the suspoct from
nearly that hour until ten o'clock. The
witness said that he and Coughlin were
sent out to search for Smith on May 7.
While out Coughlin stopped and talked
with a man whom Coughlin subsequent
ly told the witness was Smith, the drlvt
1 er of the white borse. Why Coughlin
did not arrest Smith, witness could not
I tell. The wltnoss was suspended from
I the force on May 25, the day of Cough
lin's arrest. . -
"Did you not, on the night you were
suspended, appear before the mayor,
chief of policg, corporation counsel
Hutchinson, Captain Sohuettler and at
torney Hynea and say that you did not
know where Coughlin waa on tho night
i of May 4?" asked Mr. Longonccker. The
j witness said he never told anybody any
such thing. The State on rebuttal
1 win
stand
put the mayor and others on the
to oontrodict tne last answer. ,
"When vou and Coucrhlin saw Smith
j why didn't you arrest him?" the State's
1 Attorney asked.
The witness tried to explain that he
understood Smith .was not wanted, but
the effort was a very lame one. Police
Sergeant Stlft testified to having seen
Coughlin about the station between nine
and ten o olook on the night of May 4.

ALL' NATIONS GAMBLE. ,
It Is a Tloa aa Old as th Universe) sad'
Thrive In Spite of Law.
It has often been maintained that
gambling Is an acquired or cultivated
taste or habit and. not the result af a
natural vioiouS Inclination Inherent la
human nature. , The facts do not bear
out this theory, however, says the New
Orleans Picayune,' as history clearly
proves that gambling has been a preva
lent passion with all nations and olassea
In all ages, and that ia spite of tha most
rigorous, repressive laws it has survived .
with onoimuiisnea vigor. , . .,
' In old Greece gambling was a recog
nized evil and laws were enacted for its
repression.:' Among the Goths and Van
dals dloe play was tarried oa to such an
extent , that t these barbarous people
would not only risk their whole fortune,
but their personal liberty aa well, on a sin
gle throw. The gambling4 of the Saxons,
Danes and Normans are matters of En
glish history, and when cards name hi to
fashion, which was in the reign 'ef
Henry ;YII.,. It. soon became, necessary
In the eyes of the authorities of the time
to prohibit their use. There was a curi
ous exception made In favor of the
Christmas holidays, during whloh even
apprentices were allowed to play with
cards provided they did so in their mas
ters' houses. ' ! -
Tha laws promulgated against gam
bling during the reign of Henry VI IL
were framed not so much against gam
bling itself aa to prevent suoh pastimes
from tempting the English youth to neg
lect manly sports. But still, 'be the
ground what It may, gaming houses, too,
were forbidden by this monarch. James I.
was not against them and left on record
under his own hand: "When it Is foule
and storme weather there may be law
ful play at the cards or tables;" but la
Charles II. 's reign the vice spread to
suoh extent that more repressive meas
ures than ever were taken against it
and gaming was forbidden in all forms.
Queen Anne, too, oarried on the cru
sade, creating quite a revolution in the
fashions of the time by her enactments
declaring gambling dobts void and mak
ing playing for money unlawful In

THE ENFANT TERRIBLE.
How H Paralyied HI Big Slater's De
voted Bean.
. A .young man who Is not a little par
ticular about his reputation, whloh hap
pens to be good enough to be worth tak
ing care of, had this doleful experienoe
In the country last month, says tha Bos
ton Courier. It was up in the hills, and
as it ohanced two parties of people
whom he knew were lingering at towns
a few miles apart From time to time
there were festivities In one place or the
other, and one evening the young man
in question, accompanied by a friend of
about his own age and ia his class at
oollege, set out to drive over from the
village where he was staying to the
other to attend a dance.
The night was dark and the way ob
scure. Absorbed in some mattef whloh
they were discussing the young men did
not give any particular heed to tha di
rection which their horse took, and were
not a little surprised and still more dis
gusted whon at length he stopped short
in front of what proved upon examina
tion to be a stone wall far out in a field
away alike from the road and any human
habitation. It was with a good deal of
difficulty that they found their way out
of the rustio track Into which their
steed had turned, and before they had
reached the highway tho exploration of
ditches, quagmires and the like, whloh
they had involuntarily made, bad re
duced their attire to a condition whioh
rendered tholr attendance upon any so
cial function Impossible. They were
forced to make the best of their way
back to their starting point and oonsolo
themselves as best they might for the
loss of tho dancing party.
The next day the hero called upon
young lady who for the moment reigned
supreme In his affections, and Into her
sympathizing ear he poured the tale of
his woe, not noting that her three-year-old
brother, who wss playing upon the
floor, was also absorbed In the recital.
His feelings may be Imagined when, at
the close of his story, the youngster
looked up to say with a frown of over
whelming sympathy:
"Well, that old horse must have been
pretty drunk!"
THE FINAL OUTCOME..
What the Earth Will Look Mke In
the
Year S, 000,000 A. D.
No particle of sand which goes down
into the sea ever comes back, says the
St. Louis Republlo. Yet millions of
particles leave the surface of the earth
every second and are carried, suspended
in the waters of more than 80,000 rivers,
out Into the ocean. There are more
than 100 streams, classed as rivers, In
the State of Louisiana alone. Each of
these basBeveralhundredoreeks, brooks
and spring branches tributary to It.
Each brook or spring branch, with Its
countless rivulets, olasps the hillsides
and drags down the surfaces thereof
down into the brooks down into the
creeks down Into the rivers down to
old ocean. And there the atoms rest
patlontly; each atom waiting for others
now resting in the green fields, but soon
to Join the oomrade gone before.
To-day an atom forms partof a farm In
Iowa or Missouri, to-morrow It la on its
way to the gulf. This process has been
going on slnoe the beginning of time
since "the earth waa without form and
void;" the primeval rooks have been dis
integrated and spread abroad in fortile
field to be slowly sifted out and washed
Into the ocean; perhaps again to be up
heaved and formed Into Islands and con
tinents abldlng-plaoes for coming gen
erations. . All life, animate and inani
mate, la simply an illustration of this
grinding down process; of the master
rubbing down tha bumps to fill up tha
hollows.' . ' !
The final outcome, after millions of
years, 6f thissmoothlng-dowa process oa
the' surface of our globe, will make tha
earth partake of tha nature of a huge
billiard ball sailing through the sky
