Lisnox, Feb. 2. -The men of three regi
ments of troops stationed at Porto to the
number of i X). revolted Saturday with the
avowed purpose of proclaimings republic.
They assembled at 4 o'clock in the morn
ing and paraded the streets. They tried
to seiza the prefecture of police and the
telegraph lines but the loyal artillery com
pelled them I o submit after considerable
fighting. The killed and wounded on
both sides is varionsly estimated at from
twenty to fifty.
The Fight with the Insurgents.
In the light with the insurgents the
town ball, which they occupied, was
greatly damaged and the king's portrait
in the town hall was destroyed. Several
of the woundfd soldrers died yesterday. A
number of houses were injured by the
cannonading of the town hall. The police
have arr sted the actor, Verdial, who read
proclamation declaring a republic estab
lished from the town hall balcony. All
the republican leaders are now in custody
except Dr. Veiga. Republican clubs have
been closed and papers seize 1. Reinforce

The -Malcontent Will Die.
Cpou the suppression of tlie insurrec
tion a court-martial was immediately or
dered to try the ringleaders in the revolt,
whose fate is certain to be death. All day
Saturday, while the result of the struggle
was still in the balance, crowds thronged
fce principal streets of Lisbon, eagerly
waiting for news and discussing the situ
ation. Some of the lower class were evi
dently bent upon mischief, but they read
fly dispersed at the command of the police.
The government has instituted a rigid in
vestigation to ascertain the extent of the
disaffection, although it is believed that
the conspiracy did not extend beyond the
troops eutfaged in the insurrection and did
aot include any persons high in author
ity. Tarlos' Government Strengthened.
Radical measures are proposed for
earcliiiig ar.d weeding out of liangeroui
individuals, and all foreigners upon whom
suspicion m;y rest will be ordered to
lave Portugal. The government of King
,arlos finds itself strengthened instead of
weakened by the outbreak, which gives
pretext for rigorous measures which
save been long thought desirable. Xo

spiracy at taches to Serpa Pinto, or any of
iiie others who have been really promt

A Ilepublican Outburst.
It was an outburst of republicanism fos
tered by petty agitators in the rank and
die of the army. King Carlos, who was
reported to be inclined to mercy, has, it is
stated, been led to see the necessity of
the severest penalties for the mutineers.
Besides the execution of the ringleaders,
the remainder of the men engaged in the
outbreak will be drafted to Angola and
Slozarubique. under strict guard, and
there established as garrisons in the inte
rior of Port uguese Africa, which, for the
most part, is very unhealthy and not fit
fcr the residence of Europeans.
PAR NELL'S SPEECH AT ENNIS.
e Predicts Kverythlng Dear to the
Heart of the Home Ituler.
Dublin, Feb. 2. Parnell's journey from
Dublin to I'.nnis was a triumphal progress.
At Athlone he was met by a great demon
stration and repeatedly cheered. In reply
ke addressed a few words expressing hi3
eonfldence in the future of Ireland. On
arriving at Ennis Parnell, who was most
enthxisiastically received, spoke from a
platform in front of the O'Connell statue.
He declared that Ireland still claimed to
sovereign within her own domain, and
refused to admit any English veto so far
.ts her own business was concerned. In a
low days they would know the truth of
Xis declaration. They would soon see a
settlement of this question, which would
be everlastingly creditable to their patriot
ism. An Irish Parliament Certain.
They would gain a parliament with
power to protect the interests of every
class, and to settle the important ques
tions relating to the land and police. The
military constabulary would he disarmed,
smd converted into a civil force under con
trol of the Irish parliament, and of Ire
land's elected representatives i n that par
liament. Under such a parliament Ire
land would realize her national aspira
tions. Parnell was loudly cheered. In
the evening he returned to Dublin on his
way to London.
A Hull Stops Railway Traffic.
London, Feb. 2. Traffic on the London,
Chatham and Dover railway was suspend
ed for three hours Satunlay near London,
because of a mad bull taking possession of
the line, and charging furiously upon the
trains. Every effort to kill or subdue the
animal proved fntile, until finally the en
gineer, more agile or courageous than his
fellow-workmen, engaged in a combat
with the bull at close quarters, and suc
ceeded in felling him with a blow of
a hammer. No one dared to shoot the bull
for fear of hitting some of the passengers
Crisis in the Italian Cabinet.
Rome, Feb. 3. The debate Saturday
afternoon in the chamber of deputies on
the proposed spirits taxes ended in a min
isterial crisis. Premier Crispi urged that
the taxes wera imperatively necessary in
order to recoup the national revenues and
prevent Italy from falling again into a
condition of servility to foreign powers,
such as existed in 1874. This phrase gave
rise to an uproar in the chamber, the re
sult being the rejection of the tax and the
resignation of CrispL

LojfDOX, Fob. i. Advertising seems to
have run mad in London. The uniforms

eers. They all bore theatrical advertisements.

IDEAS OF CANDIDATE STREETER.
What the Farmers Need and Some Re

Springfield, Ills.. Feb. 2 To a corre
spondent Saturday A. J. Streeter, F. M.
B. A. candidate for United Stat es senat.nr
said: "I believe that there should be re-
vision of the tariff taxes from time to

Higher Prices for Farm Prodncts.
"Farmtrft most need hi-'her

a hundred times more than they need
lower prices ior wuat tbey buy. From the
begiuninc of our government mimt nf Ha
revenues have been raised from a tax lev
ied on imported goods, and I fully believe
that the best interest of our great agricul
tural people will be promoted by a contin

large reduction of the tariff tax, means a
direct tax to be levied and collected by the
states in lieu in of it."
Failure of a Mutual Company.
Chicago, Feb. 2. The Consolidated Mu
tual Fire Insurance company made a vol
untary assignment Saturday in the cir
cuit court to George II. Richey, the vice
president. The headquarters of the com
pany were in this city and its offices in
the Royal Insurance building. The deed
of assignment shows liabilities of 10.",W,
and assets of i:i.2!):i. The cause of the as
signment was that the state auditor re
quired the concern to show enough cash
funds to pay incurred losses and expenses,
which it could not do; assessment was
made, and the policy holders would not
respond. Now they will have to see the
court about the matter.

an unknown girl lay on a rude bier in an
undertaker's shop in Diamoudale, a vil
lage seven miles south of Lansing Satur

the '.ivid marks left by the grasp of merci
less fingers upon it, and the teeth had bit
ten through the lips. The body, entirely
denuded of clothing, was found in the
rivet threa miles from Diamondale Fri
day night by Solomon and Clifton Dorr,
two farmers. They had started to cross

The girl is of fair complexion, with
brown hair, eyes large and of a bluish

pearance or" liHviug been rather delicate.
Her hands Mnd feet are unusually small
and wtll formed and look as if they be

rearel Her hand do not look as if she
had evi r don J any hard work and there is
ageneial appearance of good breeding
about t le girl that makes the mystery as
to her identity more complicated. The
only theory that has not yet been exploded

that she is Florence Young, who lived nenr
Jackson This Miss Young is said by
those who have seen her to bear a resem
blance to the body.
Possible Clue to the Mystery.
Joseph Polhemns and his wife live on a
farm nbc -nt a mile from where the body
wa.s foui d. Thursday night, shortly after

team of horses attached to n carriaze was
driven tin and halted in front of their
cabin. Mrs. Polhemns started to investi
gate, ami. on opening the door, was star
tled by a man who h:d approached to
within a eiv feet of the house. When she
opened the door the man exclaimed: "My
God! Somebody lives here!-' and ran back
to the rad. where another man and
woman ?toxl near the horses. The
woman si-reamed "Murder," whereunon
on? of the men exclaimed: "I'll fix you 'O
you won't y.V.r.n At the same time the
strap by whu'h the horses were tied was
cut and they dished up the road, and dis
appeared with the woman.
Assaulted Refore the Murder.
When the bodv was removed from the

been thrust into the water but a few
hours befo:-e. and that it bad been disposed
of almost immediately after death. A
coroner's inquest was held, the physicians
who were examined testifying to a Indief
that criminal assault preceded the mur

none succeeded in identifying the victim.
Iansintr off i ers nre now working on the
case, but h ive as yet obtained no clue to
the identity of the murdered girl or trace
of her murderers.
