BRAZIL PLANS WELCOME FOR BATTLESHIP FLEET ADMIRAL EVANS EXPECTED TO ARRIVE IN HARBOR OF RIO JA NEIRO TOMORROW—PRESI-ENT PALMA WILL TENDER HIM A RECEPTION—MAGNIFICENT BANQUET WILL FOLLOW FLEET WILL REMAIN 10 DAYS ___ . . RIO JANEIRO, Jan. 9.—Escorted by the Brazilian cruisers Barros and Tarmandere and the gunboats Tara eyo, Tynbira and Tiradentes, the battleship fleet of Admiral Evans is expected to arrive in the harbor of Rio Janeiro tomorraw and will be given a royal welcome by the gov ernment officials and the citizens of in IK. llrnzllinn canltal Interest in tne Brasilian capuai. luieiesi the festivities to be given in honor tne teeiivuies 10 De given mmui of the American officers is wide spread in the highest social and of Octal circles of Rio, and the people are anxious to return the welcome extended to the Brazilian naval offl cers at Washington and last summer. ! President Palma will give hie reception in honor of Admiral 1 Evans, the other admirals and the battleship commanders. Ambassa ! dor Dudley will also be a guest, of honor at the affair, which will be held in the presidential palace at I Petropolis. The finance minister wil give a ball in honor of the Ameri cans on Fiscal island. The minister ; of marine has arranged for two ex ; cursions, one to the summit of Cor covado. a mountain peak about two i miles from Rio, where a promenade luncheon will be served while the guests view the magnificent vista j presented by the city and harbor land surrounding oountrv. The other 1 trin will be to TUuoa park, where the Naval club will entertain. A magnificent banquet, at which 600 covers will be laid, will be se v ed in the Monroe pavilion, with Foreign Minister Brancho as host and President Ruy Burbose of va 1 OUI Norfolk nota the Brazilian sennte as the principal speaker. Another banquet will also be given by the government in the grand salon of the marine arsenal at Yaura. Other dinners in honor of Admiral EVans and the other offi cers of the fleet will be given by the mayor of Rio Janeiro, by Dr. Jose , Carlos Redriguez, proprietor of the Journal of Commerce and by Am bassador Dudley. Admiral Alencar, the minister of marine, has an espe daily cordial feeline toward Ameri- j and the American naval officers, and for weeks has given almost his entire time to plans and prépara tions for the arrival of the fleet. Half a hundred rooms in the most magnifleent hotel of Petropolis have been reserved for the use of the American officers during their stay in Rio, and the best of everything will be their for the asking. The sailorB and men will have a good time, as well as the officer», They will be granted shore leave, | about 3000 at a time, and several picnics and "feeds" will be given in their honor. There is admittedly some prejjudice against Yankee bluejackets among a certain portion of the population of Rio, and fears have been entertained that the pres ence of so many of them on the streets will lead to disorder. These forebodings are scouted by the may-| or and police chief, who declare their confidence in the law-abiding spirit of American sailors. spirit of American sailors. The arrival of the fleet In R'o will mark the completion of the sec ond and longest lap of the voyage around South America. Rio is 3,100 miles from Port of Spain, where the j fleet made Its first stop. The Ameri- j !can battleships will remain here ' days, during which time they will be coaled for the trip to Puntas Arenas, la distance of 2200 miles, arriving there on January 30. There will be , ! little joy or jollity there, as the port Is a desolate settlement beyond the bounds of civilization, harboring lit tie more than 1000 souls, situated well inside the straits of Magellan, ' with Patagonia on one side and Ter" ra del Fuego on the other. Puntas Arenas was formerly a Chilean con vict station, end the surrounding country is inhabited mainly by j Pategonian Indians. Beautiful Rio will be the last op portunlty the tars will have to step | on civilized shores until the fleet reaches Callao, Peru, the middle of next month. Advices received here from Lima state that he Peruvians are bent on outdoing even Brazil's hospitable welcome. President Par do will give a banquet o 300 of the American officers, and the minister of marine will give a ball In their honor to which 1200 of the leaders of Peruvian society have been invited. Each officer already of the fleet will also be given a souvenir in the shape of a magnificent album containing photographs of Peruvian scenery. the officers Rio Janeiro, where and men will spend the next days, now boasts of being the most beautiful city of the new world, and there are many American and for eign residents here who admit that the boast is true. Practically all of 10 the boast is true. Practically all oi , tI _ .. . . „ ' this work of beautification has been be the accomplished in the last decade, be fore which Rio was notorious as pesthole of the universe. The city is over 350 years old, and until recent years maintained the same old stvle jcaio umuaaiucu mx? or»mv viu ul- » w of Portuguese architecture and the same narrow, dark, ill-smelling streets.
