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.
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
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.

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
Tho Succeaaur to Judge Bond.
