The advance sheets of this report have just been received by the Bureau of American Republics. feery says, concerning immigration into Brazil: "The recent repeal by the Brazilian Cungiess of the law which pro hibited Chinese and Japanese immigra tion has awakened much interest in the subject, and the best mode of introducing Chinese and Japanese laborers is the ques tien now being discussed by planters and speculators. "The labor supply is not equal to the de mands of the farmers. They are unable to procure sufficient help to carry on their bujines 5 , but with one exception uo steps have been taken by tlie companies to whom the management of immigration is intrusted to introduce these laborers. One company lias gone so far as to send an ag"iit to China to investigate, tho situation, lhe company having fears that the Chinese will refuse to emigrate to this republic. "The general opinion abroad that Brazil sends i nt official agents of immigration is not correct The encouragement the Gov ernment offers is not direct but through companies. Heretofore many companies have entered into contracts with the Gov ernment for the iiitroduct o i of immi grants. These contracts, however, were all suspended by one signed August *_', 1892, with the Companla Metropolitana fur the introduction within the next ten years, beginning January 1, 1893, of 1.000.C00 persons. Some of the clauses of this con tract will serve to show the method of introducing immigrants, the contract call ing for not more than 100,000 Dor less than 20,000 per year, with the maximum at lOi',ooo, which can he decreased or in- j creased 50 per cent by previous notice of i four months from the G ivernment. ."The contract specifies tlie class of im- grants to be brought, and among the specifications is one to the effect that 90 per c-> J ; must be the families of agricul lurK''. The immigrants must De of differ i :fi ■ i tin ties, not more than 60 pet c**;tt coming from the sanve country. . The age . a"-*, specified, and all must be strong n. '.apt at their professions. Paupers and ilie uiminal classes will not be received. Those Who do not come op lo the terms of t'li- contract will be sent back at the ex- ! pense of the company. If they are strong, honest workers, without physical defects, und declare formally that they propose to si tie in Brazil, they will be accepted by tin-, Government. They are then housed .tr.! fed uutil the Government transports fi ni to their places of destination in the ni mr, where they are then allowed to ako up public land, uncultivated, at the rate of 25 milreis (sl2) per hectare, or two and a half acres. Payment is to be made in nine annual installments, the first to be made in the second year, and the settler receives as advances such agricultural im plements and tools as are necessary iv his occupation. "The Government guarantees "to send hack to their native country all those who become widows and orphans, or incapaci tated by some accidental injury resulting from the duties of their profession during the first year. Through this policy of en couragement there has been for some years an annual increase in immigration, and since all eyes are now turned to China nothing will he left undone on this side of the water to make large additions of Chi neselto the present population."

No Effort Made to Enforce the Geary Washington, June I.—Attorney-Gen eral Olney said to-day that he had issued special instructions, in two instances only, for the enforcement of the law against the Chinese.

SAW THE HORSES RUN Princess Eulalia Is a Dead Game Sport. Pocketed Her Losses, Smoked a Cig arette and Gave Her Win nings to tho Poor. New Yokk, June 1. — The Princess Eulalia went to the races to-day at Morris Park. The people on the grand stand clapped their hands as she took her seat, but that was too tame a proceeding for the crowd in iront, and one loud-voiced chap shouted, "Hooray for the Princess!" Then the crowd yelled and threw their hats in the air. The Princess was much interested in the race*. Howard Carroll gave her a tip on St. Florian, and acting on her instructions she placed $40 on that horse at odds of 3io 1. Clearly, Carroll was not on the inside, or St. Florian did no*, know he was carry ing royal money or did not appreciate the honor, for he could get no better than sev enth place. The lady of Bourbon blood was dead game, just the same, and pocketed her loss as a part of the enter tainment. i President Forbes then invited the party over to the clubhouse, where an elaborate luncheon was served, 'i he Princess was in good humor, and after coffee had been served and the men lit their cigars she lighted a cigarette and puffed away in a most nonchalant manner. Meanwhile a bet was placed for her on the fifth race and when Chorister came in a winner it was announced that the Princess had won £100, which she pre sented at once to the Catholic Orphan Asylum. Commander Davis wrote a lengthy letter to Mrs. Potter Palmer to-day, in which he gave explicit instructions as to how the Infanta should be received in Chicago. The Princess and suite dined this even ing with YVhitelaw Reed at his handsome residence. The company was a notable one. Among the guests were: Arch bishop Corrigan, Spanish Minister Aluru aga, ex-Vice-President Morton, ex-Secre tary of the Navy Tracy, Mayor and Mrs. Gilroy and General Horace Porter. About fifty invited guests came in for the evening and were presented to the In fanta.

The father also tried to interfere and the son placed the muzzle of the weapon at the old man's breast and fired. 'the father fell dead. Tho murderer had two hours' start when intelligence of the tragedy was brought to town, but Deputy Sheriff Hearn with a posse started in pursuit. Dennis was overtaken in the woods to-day. He agreed to surrender, but as he approached the posse he lifted his gun and fired, kill ing the Sheriff instantly.

Therefore the Presbyterian Church Has No Room f6r Him or His Schismatic Teachings. Special to TnE Morning. Call. Washington. June I.— Having decided they bad a heretic on their hands in tne person of Dr. Briggs, the first thing for the delegates to the Presbyterian General Assembly to do this morning was to con sider what should be done with him. The committee appointed to decide the matter brought In the recommendation, "Suspen sion from the ministry." and the assembly adopted the report. Dr. Briggs was sus pended indefinitely, and can only be re instated on recantation of the matter in Mis speeches and writings lo which objec tion is made. It is most unlikely that he will ever do that. On the convening of the Presbyterian General Assembly, the moderator an nounced the names of the committee to formulate the minute expressing the sense of the assembly as to the vote taken upon the appeal from the New York Presbytery in the Briggs case. Rev. Thomas A. Hoyt of Philadelphia was made chairman. The other members areas follows: Ministers H. W. Cong don, Nebraska; W. VV. Ilarshn, Nebraska; J. J. Lucas. Indiana; G. D. Baker, Penn sylvania; E. P. hallon, Indiana; Thomas Dewing, lowa. The elders are: John Randolph, Baltimore; Thomas McDou gall, Ohio; David Jackson, California; E. T. Greene, New Jersey; J. A. Curry, Ken tucky; E. D. YVarfield, Pennsylvania. The committee retired and the assembly as a court adjourned, resuming legislative business as an assembly. The assembly adopted the report of the committee on bills and overtures reaffirm ing the deliverance of the assembly of 1892 on the inspiration of the Scriptures. Rev. John Dickson, chairman of the committee of theological seminaries, sub mitted his report. The institutions gen erally report prosperity. As to the Lane Theological Seminary the trustees had been compelled to abolish the chair of practical theology owing to their reduced income, thus compelling the resignation of Dr. Roberts, who was the incumbent. In the list of professors the assembly finds the name of Rev. Henry Preserved Smith, D.D., who, in December last, was sus pended by the presbytery of Cincinnati for unsoundness in faith. The board should have accepted the resignation of Professor Smith or at least have relieved him from the discharge cf his auties. The assembly therefore is constrained to withhold its ap proval and commendation from Lane Serif-' mary until the board has recoustdered its action and remedied this error." ' The committee recommended that tho re election of Rev. Charles A. Briggs, D.D.. by the presbytery of Newark, a3 director of the German Theological Seminary at Bloomfield, N. J., be disapproved by this assembly. A long and excited discussion followed the presentation of the report, but the question was finally put and the re port adopted in its entirety by a largo ma jority. At the afternoon session Dr. Craig con vened the assembly as a court to hear the report of the committee appointed to pre pare the explauatory minute in the Briggs rase, and Rev. Mr. Hovt, chairman, at once called upon Dr. Baker of the sub committee sent to Interview Professor Briggs to report the result of the inter view. Dr. Baker said tbat Professor Briggs had stated his irrevocable determination to abide by the declarations made in his ad dress before the assembly in his defense and to continue to teach the doctrines there avowed. At the request of Dr. Baker Professor Briggs gave him an auto graph letter making such statement, whereupon Dr. Baker said the committee took the action which Mr. Hoyt would now report to the assembly. The report, after reciting the proceed ings in the case, proceeds: "This judica tory finds that the said final judgment of the Presbytery of New York is erroneous and it is hereby reversed, and this General Assembly finds the appellee, Charles A. Briggs. uttered, taught and propagated views, doctrines and teachings contrary to the essential doctrine of the holy Scripture and to the standards of said Presbyterian church and in violation of the ordination vows of said appellee, which said ' er roneous views and doctrines strike at the vitals of religion and have been in dustriously spread. "This assembly does therefore suspend Charles A. Briggs, the said appellant, from the office of a minister in the Presby terian church in the United States of America until such time as he shall give satisfactory evidence of repentance to the General Assembly for the violation by him of said ordination vow as herein and heretofore found." The report was adopted and a vote of thanks given the committee for its serv ices. Rev. Dr. nerrick Johnson of Chicago presented a protest against the action of the assembly on the inspiration of the holy Scripture", and Rev. Dr. Young offered a supplement to the report of the committee on bills and overtures on the inspiration of the Scriptures, as follows: liesolved, That the Bible as we now have It, In various translations and versions, when freed from all the errors and mistakes of trans lators, copyists and Inters, Is the very word of God, and consequently wholly without error. This was unanimously adopted, and then Dr. Sprague presented for considera tion a protest against the action of the assembly in the Brig case as being too severe a sentence for the offense of the honored scholar named, and as tending to restrict the liberty heretofore enjoyed by office-bearers . In. the Presbyterian church. Saratoga, N.Y., was chosen is the place of meeting for the assembly of 1894, and a recess was taken until 7:45. The records of the various synods were reported and approved except those of Pennsylvania, for incompleteness, and of South Dakota, for- holding business 'i ses. sions on Sunday. 1 - The record -of Wiscon sin ;. was approved with '*; fourteen-'exrep lions, which were "ordered -sent ' to the synod for 'its- information. The various standing committees were then discharged in due form, reporting no further business. The usual resolutions of thanks were of fered, after hearing complimentary and congratulatory addresses from a number of members. In eloquent phrase Dr. Craig made his closing speech, and at 9:50 p. si. the one hundredth and fifth general assembly of the Presbyterian Church of the United States iv America was declared dissolved. New Yokk, June I.— Rev. Charles Briggs, D.D., returned from Washington to-night. "Has the decision of the General As sembly in suspending you from the min istry made any change in your relations with the Union Seminary?" he was asked. "None whatever," replied the doctor. The professor and some of his friends intimated, though, that the action in Washington did not settle the matter. ** — — ■ .._.«-*.. ... : MUNMiM, . ______H WILL NOT VOTE.

What He Said on Memorial" Day He Meant, and He Will Stand* By, Too. H§S Special to The Moknino Call! New York, June l.— Foraker of Ohio said, regarding the YY'orld's attacks for his Memorial day speech references to the South: "I have no apology to make for my utterances. My language speaks for itself. I did not say an unkind word about anybody. On the contrary, 1 com plimented the Confederate soldiers for their bravery and heroism. YVhat I took exception to was the claim that Beauregard was a patriot who fought for his country and that Jeff Davis would rank in history with YY'ashington. I do not expect to please the New York YVorld or any other Confederate sympathizer, aud it Is entirely immaterial to nic whether the YVorld and its friends are p'cased or displeased. 1 stated only the facts and convictions I have, and which are, 1 think, shared by all patri otic citizens. This is not the first time I have had copperheads frothing, fuming and spitting out their «pier.*. ; venom. I* didn't say anything about CMre/and ex cept by inference. What I said was Me morial day was the last day on earth for any American citizen to go fishing, and its observance is not beneath the dignity of even the President of the United States."

Thirty Thousand Lights Gleaming. WONDERS OF ELECTRICITY. — — ; 3t.u?: Opening of the Department of the Fair in Which the Greatest Interest Is Felt. Hpeclal to The Morning Call. Chicago, June I.— The weather to-day was warm and wet and exceedingly di» agieeahle, and this operated to keep the attendance at the World's Fair down to about 30.000. There weie numerous at tractions for the day, among tbe features being the dedication of the Kentucky building. A laree number of Ke.ntuckians were present. Including Governor John Young Brown and many representatives of the State Press Association. The building was turned over to the Governor by the Board of Commissioners, the Gov ernor accepting in a brief speech. Follow ing these ceremonies Miss Enid Yandell's statue of Daniel Boone was unveiled. The day is the anniversary ot Kentucky's ad mission to the Union. The German section of Machinery Hall was formally opened to-day with cere monies under the auspices of the Imperial Commissioner.

It was the formal opening of the building. The effect of 450 arc lights and 35,000 in candescent lights was heightened and in tensified by ten French marine search lights, when revolved on pedestals erected around the French exhibit. The most beautiful feature of the building is a shaft eighty-five feet high in the central partof the building. Around it are arranged 10,000 Incandescent lamps, giving the ap pearance of a column of fire. The shaft is surmounted by a large revolving prismatic globe, illuminated on the interior with arc lights, and, as there are 30.000 prisms when the globe revolves, the effect is most startling.

The Sunday-Openers Have There fore Probably Lost Their Case. Chicago, June Justice Brewer of the United State Supremo Court sat on the bench this afternoon and listened to arguments in the YVorld's Fair injunction ! suit. Attorney VY T alker filed an amended answer on behalf of the exposition, In which it was claimed that while the expo sition received after March 3 some of the souvenir coins provided for in the act of Augusts, 1892, it denies that It bad full knowledge of the passing of the act, ex cept such knowledge as might be derived from its publication. It also says that de fendant, not being informed of the con struction that would be rut upon. the net by the Secretary of the Treasury In the latter part of March or early in April, communicated with him, requesting an interpretation. An answer was not re ceived until late in April, when the Secre-. lary forwarded a cony of an opinion by the Attorney-General. This advised the Secretary to withhold £">7O,SSO, a part of the appropriation made in the act of August, IW2, and in pursu ance of it defendant has not received that sum. Later in the day the attorneys for the Government submitted a certified copy of the minutes of tho meeting of the direc tors on March 22 last, in which the notifi cation from the Secretary of the Treasury was referred to a committee. It was claimed that the acceptance of money by the exposition after it had knowledge of the construction placed upon the act stopped it from setting up the plea of vio lation of contract. United States Solicitor-General Aid rich spoke first for the Government, and Mr. Walker- followed for the exposition. Mr. High was closing for the Government when the court adjourned. FRIENDSHIP OF THE PRESS. How the Commissioners Are Going About Winning It. Chicago, June 1. — Everything about the California building was slick and spruce to-day as could be, the reason be ing the reception given by the Commis missioners to the California, local nnd Eastern newspaper men, with a sprinkling of department chiefs and national Com missioners, it being the occasion of the formal opening of the cafe in tho build ing, which is under the direct control of the Commissioners. *, About fifty guests were present, and they were set before a table laden with California products. It was an im promptu affair, but withal a very pleasant one.. Vice-President Phelan acted as toastmaster, and was extremely happy in his remarks. He introduced to the as semblage Commissioner De Young, who launched at once into his pet project of holding a winter fair lv San Francisco. ■ , Colonel Holland of the Bureau of Pub licity stated that if the fair management had been compelled to pay for all the notices it had received at one cent a word the expenditure would have been 514.000, --000. He suggested that if the California fair is 'to be a success the management must get on the good side of the news papers. * ; Judge Martindale of Indianapolis spoke highly of the project, and said that if tbe fair was held be would bring a large crowd of Hooslers to see it. _ • \ Commissioner: Mark l L. McDonald and Secretary; Wells nUo made addresses, in "which they told the f newspaper men some thing of the glories of California. i -Chief Larue 'of .the Viticultiiral Depart ment told them what California is doing in bis department, and also related some amusing anecdotes of early days on the Pacific Coast. There were not nearly so many Califor niaus on the ground to-day as has been usual for several days past. There are a large number of them in the city, but the weather was -so bad that they did not get to the fair or to the State building. There has ; been considerable rivalry among the ladies in the building as to what room the Governor should have for his headquarters, on his visit to the fair. This question was decided to-day, when it was arranged that he should be given the Eschseholtzia or Poppy room. The apart ment will be especially decorated for the purpose. WILL ISSUE BONDS. And Thereby the Whisky Trust Gets Into Trouble. Chicago, June I.— Attorney * Jacob Newman, who represents a number of stockholders and creditors of the whisky trust, said to-day that a bill will be filed in the United States courts for a receiver and tn wind up the affairs of the trust unless the concern pays some attention to the de mands made by several of these stock holders. Newman said to a reporter for a local paper this evening that his clients in the East were much dissatisfied with the way things had been run. and unless their demand for a change of tactics was ac ceded to would take radical measures. He refused to state who his clients were or to specify the grounds of their dissatisfac tion. President Green hut when told of the mutter said that at the meeting held a couple of weets" ago some New York and Cincinnati holders objected to the bond issue, aud these were probably the same people employing Newman. lie knew nothing more about the matter. The trust had decided upon a bond issue, and that was all there was to it. RATES TUMBLE DOWN The Atchison Road Has Worked Its Wicked Will. Now Let the War Extend and Pres ently California Will Get a Taste of It. (Special to The Morning Call. Chicago, June I.— The inauguration of cheap rates from Colorado and Missouri River points has started the ball rolling and now there is no telling where it will stop. The Alton to-day announced that il would meet the Atchison's rates and that they would be good westbound as well as eastbound. Furthermore, its one-way rates would be based on the cut round trip fares of the Atchison. The Atchison promptly followed suit and the Rock Island fed into line, although it left Omaha rates untouched. The Burlington made no offi- cial announcement, but char-zed-, no mora than the other*. Tho Albert Lea route has made a round-trip rate between St. Paul nnd Chicago of $16, and on July 4 a single-trip rate will be made of $8 85. The Wisconsin Central has done the same and other lines will probably follow.
