RIO JANEIRO, Jan. 9.—Escorted
by the Brazilian cruisers Barros and
Tarmandere and the gunboats Tara

battleship fleet of Admiral Evans is
expected to arrive in the harbor of
Rio Janeiro tomorraw and will be

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
! 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

Brazilian sennte as the principal
speaker. Another banquet will also
be given by the government in the
grand salon of the marine arsenal at

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.
