BOANOKE, VA.. NOVEMBER 11?, 1893. As had been anticipated Admiral Mello's revolutionary tactics against President Peixto at Rio de Janeiro were but a mask to cover his real purpose cf replacing an emperor over the Brazilian people. In this he has not the sympathy of tho United States. It seems from the lateBt report from Hawaii that all iB quiet and peaceful, where it had been foared war and riot might have occurred within the time of departure of the last two steamers bringing the news from that place. It would seem also that the criticism of the instructions, which it was alleged President Cleveland and Secretary Gresham had given to Minister Willis, were too premature. Thus far the action of the minister has been directly contrary to what the newspaper reporter had anticipated it wouldbo, and they cannot but feel chagrined over their false proph? ecy of what those instructions were. As thus far the relations are all amicable it is generally believed that no disturb? ance will follow. President Cleveland has again vindicated himslf. u li.I. THE BUILDINGS REMAIN".' Those who were among the fortunate to visit the World's Fair during Its reign of glory will bo pleased to learn that a movement is on foot in Chicago, engineered by C. W. Caryl, of Phila? delphia, for maintaining the buildings i n their present location and condition, with a view to the inauguration of an? other exposition next year. The idea is to leave tho buildings in? tact and open them to the public again in May or June, with such exhibits as can be retained for that purposo and such others as may bo secured in the meantime. Director of Works Burnham estimates that it would cost about SI,500,000 to care for tho property, S3.5000,000 to run the Fair for another sis months and ?1,000,000 to close it, or a total outlay of 555,000,000. lie counts on receipts from visitors of $15,000,000 and a clear profit of 810,000,000. Tho Illinois State commissioners are unanimously in favor of tho scheme, and the executive committee of the board of directors of the fair have adopted a resolution asking that the buildings bo allowed to stand for an indefinite period. But thus far the South park commissioners appear to be 6tubbornly opposed to the project, and are insisting upon immediate reposses? sion of tho park in order that tho work of its improvement may be proceeded with, and this, of course, would necessi? tate the early destruction or removal of the great structures by which it is now ?coupled. The question is Btill in abeyance, with the chances apparently against any re openlngof tbe fair. Itseeras like vandal? ism to demolish the buildings, not only because of their architectural beauty, but because of tho memorable associa? tions with which they are identified, but unless some pressing popular de? mand should arise for their preservation they are likely to go, though some of them may be reconstructed in other portions of the city. It is doubtful if the great expectations entertained by Mr. Burnham of another exposition next summer would bo realized unless Means can be devised for exhibiting a good deal moro than tho more shell of the fair.

Dlreotors Involved In the Scandal. London, Nov. 18.?The Economist says in an article concerning rumors of irregularities in the Hank ot England: "The reaignation of Mr. May, chief cashier, was brought about owing to the character of certain transactions in securities with ono or more trust com? panies which bo sano?onod. In regard to tboso transactions, we understand that something graver than more fault of judgmont was conneotod. Mr. May, it would appear, not only ex? ceeded his authority, but also acted in a manner which he must have known was contrary to the .emulations by which the bank is governed. For that offonso he suffered. "It would now be ungenerous to dwell upon the matter, and after all the ques? tion is whether the bank knowingly lent support to the companies whoso financial methods proved to be of such a very dubious nature. That iB the gravamen of the imper? fectly formulated charges which one hears. It is satisfactory, therefore, to be able to say that as far as we can ascertain, such rumors are unfounded. As regards the responsibility of tbe di? rectors, we believe that no greater re? sponsibility attaches to the individual than to the .vbolo board. Therefore wo may lav aside the rumors of Impending resignations." Tho Succeaaur to Judge Bond. Washington, Nov. 18. ? President Cleveland has Indicated as his his de? sire that no delegations visit blm in the interest of any of the candidates for United States circuit court judge to succeed the late Judge Hond, of Haiti more.
