Thk Brazilian congress has refused to remove the ban of exile placed upon r.raz:I's deposed emperor, Dom Pedro, and ho will be compelled to live and die among strangers.

The nominee of t:ie convention was elected to the last legislature by the Patrons of Indus try and Democrats, receiving a plural ity of nearly four hundred vote3 in the second representative dis trict of Ottawa. He is a man of fair ability, but ia no eense is he a man whom tho electors of the Fifth district would denire to have represent their interests in the Congress. liOO.H SLTILEMKSTS. The land opened yesterday for settle ment comprises 1,101,!) acres. Much of it is arable and productive, vrhile a large portion of it is arid and barren. Not all of this tract will be pre-empted or homcsteaded by white settlers, for every malo Indian of the Foxes and Sacs will be entitled to a quarter-section and a whole section in each town ship will bo reserved as school lands. After deducting tho acreage thus taken there will remain 800,000 acres. Out of this immense tract there is at least 200, 000 acres sterile and unproductive. The entire tract divided into homesteads will give 5,000, oue-fourth of which will bo worthless for farming or other purposes. Yesterday at noon an ex cited throng of homestead seekers, numbering nearly twenty thousand men, rushed in upon this land, and each individual ecrambled to locato a claim. Three-fourths of them were disappointed, and they will bo com pelled to seek the centers of population where villages and cities will blossom on tho arid sands as if by magic. Kude cabins, tents and the open air will allord them hclter until the excite ment of tho surroundings abates and then they will scttlo down to contem plate their future. After a vain strug gle to gain a foothold in busineis or a tart in professional hfo the hegira back to civilization will be Btarted and in two months time tho new tract will bo de serted by all save these who were lucky in securing homesteads and tnoso who have no money to return and prefer to remain and tacc starvation rather than to walk. The hietory of all such loonjs is labelled with disappointment from the portal to the exit. Men without money expect to pass in upon and set tle government land without cost, thereby securing for themselves a home. They are blinded by their greed and do not count upon the neces sity for cattle, swine, horses, imple ments and buildings. They want tho land and when they get it, in nine cases out of ten they are left the helpless vic tims of their own covetousness. Blood shed and riot not infrequently attend the rush to these open lands and the problem for future solution is to mako the entry upon and settlement of gov ernment realty less hazardous and more business-like. ATIl.LIAU r SCOTT. In the death of William L. Scott an other illustration of tho opportunity ati'odred for amassing a fortune in America is presented. Scott started in life with a capital extending only to his head and hands. He applied him self to bmir.es early and by sturdy in dependence and frugal habits soon had procured a start. Pursuing a course of action remarkablo for sagacity and forehandedness his early hundreds de veloped into thousands and later on by extensive trade, mining and manufac turing investments his thousands grew into millions. Yet, Scott was not a man whose success in fortune-making came alone by sheer luck. He was a taskmaster of the most tyrannical type, a despot in business. He exacted tho last farthing in a deal, demanded tho last drop of swaat from the brows of the men who toiled for him and rolled up the profits which he sequestrated to swell his millions. He was a product in the financial world which springs from grinding monopoly and soulless greed. Thousands of men received their daily pittances from his swollen colTers who had produced tho rapidly augmenting increase that made him a modern Croesu. His theory and prac tice were to get all ho could and to keep all he got, and there was never a more conpcuous example of success in that direction than was tha dead Congressman. It may bo cruel to speak ungenerously of the dead, but the justification in this case is in the fact that he was never moved by a spir it of generositf in his life. He will be mourned by few who depended upon him for employment. He will te ex tolled by his colleagues in Congress; the newspapers of Kne will publish glow ng obituaries recalling his virtues; the men of h;s class and station in wealth will sing paens of praisf? to hU wealth acquiring genius, but the masses will have no words of commendation nor rghs of sorrow. In a year he will have len forgotten by all save his intimate friends, for he has left neither endow ments for chanty, nor a solitary con tr.but.on to church, school or hopital. Mr. Scott was a Democrat and a free trader. In Congress he took an acttve part in the tanu delates and rude lumstlf conspicuous as a champion of cheap tabor. PrclaMy Lis greatest spoken was devotrd i) the considera tion cf the iron schedule of the Mc- and the force of his argurueut destroyed by oae of his own iliusiratious. He employed an army of usea ia owa! ci:h ing, uoa mazmfacturiiig and upoa rail reads, and was largely ictereated iu speculative tttcrpr.ses. Ilia weaitn has been variously estimated at fro::t to -CuOjOW to $2i,CO0,C, but the ajroxi-" luata number of millions he possessed probably wiii bj never kaowu outs.de hia family. He wai born in Washing tun, D. C, July 2, lS2i. lie received a cciwuoa school education aud served as a rage ia tha House of llepretenU tivts trout 1 a 10 tlil lsld. He was taken to Erie by General Peel and was made del k in the shipping busiues. In 1S& he began bu?ir.es8 on his own hook, and soon owned several vessels on the lakes. He Ucamo largely interested in the manufacture of iron and mining coal, as wt-ll as now rejrriitntir.g over 2203 miles ot railroad probably tiu gieattst number of miles of railroad tliat one r.iaa ever controlled. He was elected to the forty-ninth Co greis as it Democrat having previously served for several terms as mayor cf Erie. AMUSEWE.'iTS." "II Trovator" was the olTering of the Atinandale Opera Company at Power' theater laat evening.

"Dr. Bill" is the title of a spicy and sparkling comedy whicJi enjoyed near ly a reason's run at the Garden theater New York last year. It will Ih pre sented at Powers' next Friday evening In reviewing the production of thr play at tho Lyceum theater Detroit Monday evening. Yesterday's Free Press had the following: "Many of the lines have a pointed ness which is a bit utiirthug to American ears. Tho young woman in red who flashes into a private parlor and points her too at tho ceiling is alo a surprise , but thanks to Ittie Lind, wo have ail been educated to the divided tkirt. The audience took to tha whole thing immensely, especially the kangaroo dance.

Commencing Friday evening and continuing for tin remainder of the engagement "tiz" will bo the pla. I'urlcaque seems immensely popular with tho jatrons of Smith's.

A tree enter tainment will bo given to ladies and children on Friday afternoou. Traeedian Downing b?can his tour, which will include tho principal cities of Michigan, in Detroit Monday even ing. Ho will play in Grand Rapids early in October. Judging from th somewhat meagre telegraph reports Hill Nye's play " The Cadi" is verry funny.

Kx-Congrirtan Ilelknap Confident or llrpublican uc. As the timo approaches for the con ventions to nominate men for the U. S. Congress, tho interest in tho subject, which has tcen at an ebq,for some time, is at full tide again. The nanus of the probable candidates are on the lipa of all interestel in the welfare of the Fifth district and much speculation is rife concerning tho political issue of the campaign. Somo of tho prominent names mentioned for tho Republican ticket are those of ex-Senator Thomas W. Ferry, William Aldcn Smith, John Ration, C. E. Uelknap, C. W. Watkins and ex-Speaker Diekema of the city. In conversation with a reporter for the Ti:i.:nAM-HF.nALD yesterday after noon Mr. Eeiknap said: "One of the greatest trouble that the Republican parly has is its supr-abundance of good men for the place. They havo so many that it is hard to choose from among them. I believe that the prin ciples of tho men should Iw considered cs well as the woric tho man can do. Mai y a man who isn't a collego graduate, and who can't even mako a speech, on do letter work for his district in a quiet way than a man who is a lorn orator. It has been the policy of tho Demo cratic party to nominato a man from this city, claiming that only such could be elected. A great many Republicans think otherwise. I am of the opinion that tho commercial as well as the political interests should tJ looked after in making the nomination. A Republican victory this fall means a great deal to us." If we could get a majority of from 0) to 1000 now, it would mean at least 2.V)00 to 40000 in the state a year from this time. A Democratic victory now would prac tically be an indorsement of all that the Democratic leg.slaturo ha don, including the acts of the present state administration. Tho convention will be held October 12lh, which will give u over two weeks for tho rampa.gn. That is plenty of time, for the probable nominen are all well known. There is no dark horse o far as I know. As far aalmysidf am concerned, I am very buy; and base no time or inclination to boom my own prospects. I have all I can do to atiend to my three branchesof huni ne, and it would be a financial loss for. me to ga to Washington. I believe I have more friends than I had three years ago, although some of my t-et fronds then are my bitterest enemies now. Put I am very proud of the enemies.

Water Ueailoek Is Very Rang-erooj, Dot V.niJ I'artalp Is Not. In a recent number of Pharmaceu tiache Rundschau, Prof. F. R. Power, of Wisconsin, reviews come cases of poisoning by the so-called wild parsnip, with the result that in 6everal cases where poisoning was supposed to havo been due to the wild form of the com mon parsnip (Puitinaca tatita) it was caused by eating the roots of water heralcck or spotted cowbane (Cicvta rnaeulaia) the root of which has long been known as a deadly poisonous um belliferous plant. There has long been a very popular belief that common parsnip In its wild form is poisonous. Chemical examination made Eotno years ngo by Prof, Power and Mr. Ilenoctt failed to show a poisonous principle in the root. Roiled roots fed in consider able amount to cats showed no ill ef fects. In one case three and a half ounees of root was chopped fine, mixed with some meat and fed a dog. Tho dog' was observed under confinement lor two days, but no symptoms of pois- WTU PARS.VxP ROOT.

The roots of the spotted cowbano which is a common plant ia taaay places in tho west, is deadly poison. The symptoms as de scribed by Dr. Avery are vomiting and pain in the epigastrium, soon followed by convulsions. In tie cases attended by Dr. Avery, eight children had par taken of the root; three of them died. 'Those who died never regained con Rckmsness after the first spasm, tho poison having leen largely absorbed before the physicians wcro rent for." Treatment, according to Stlllo and Maisch, should consist in emptying tho stomach by emetics, "and amcsthetlcs and narcotics used to control the pasm.H A Monkey's Heroism. The following story of a monkeys feeroism is told by an Indian psper: "A Urge orang-outang was very much at tached to hi master and to the baby lwy, mho was the pet of ths whole family. One day a fire suddenly broke out in the houe, and everybody was running here and there to put it out, whil the little boy ia his nursery was almont forgotten, and whea they thought of him the sUlr caw was all ia name. What could be done? A they were looking up and wondering, a larjc hairy hand n1 arm Vened the window, and prently the cuoaksy appeared with the baby in his arm, and carefully climbed down over the porch and brought the child safely to Vis nurse." EFFECT OF ACIDS. leally Paee Metal. The remits of an investigation eon- Cfmin- the cause of the lnsolobUity of pure metals in acids are contributed by jjr Tee re n to the liertcht. ie ia rave, RO Ion? ags tha year 1?G0, points out that chemically rnsre cine ! lraof.t perfectly Irolnlde in oiltite enlphorie acid. Dr. Weercn'a theory of the pbenomenoa is follows: Chemically Vnr9 ,5rte rn,a many other metals In a stat of parity are in- olabla or only yery fc'Urhilj vlnbje $a lv l acid, becau&e, at the moment oS i&elr latroJuciio-i tha acid, they becoina urrouEiit J by an ttrophe.r ci ooa deawsl by dngeu, which uader normal circaxactfcXic eUectaally prvtecU Lh laentU froaa further attack oa tld part cf tha acid. The experiment froaa whh'li this theory h& been dtrirtd. tvtre briefly t3 follovrs: The aasant of cheniiciiily puro tine clisolvad by tho acid w as first detertauued. It waa neai sought to dtterniiao what diffcrenca would be effecttd by pcrfirnaiig the experiment ia rctkt, when of courwe the escape of the hydrogen would be great ly facilitated, The aolubility was found under these eirrumttaneea to be increased sevenfold. Xext the experi rxieKit was performed at the boiling temperature cf the diiuto acid, first when ebullition waa prcvente-d by increasing the pressure, and secondly w4ucn ebullition waa uu hindered. Ia the first case, whea ebullition was prevented, the solubility was practically the tame as ia the cold; whilo in the feccosd cuse w ith uninter rupted ebullition, tho solubility was in creased 24 times. Finally, expericients were made to ascertain tho effect of in troducing into the acid a traall quantity of an oxidizing agent capable of convert ing the hydrogen film to water. When a little chromic acid was thus introduced the aolobility was increased 175 times, and when hydrogen peroxide w as en poyed tho solubility was increased three hundredfold. The explanation of tho easo with which tho metal becomes attacked when tho ordinary hapuritles aro present is that the Lydrogvn is not then liberated upon tho surface cf the zinc, but rather upon tho move electro negative impurities, leaving the pure tino itself opsn to the continued attack of the acid. Tinrjlars Outwitted. A new burglar alarm that has recent ly, been patented contains laany new and novel features. In eettiag the alarm tho pcrtou who locks tip the premises presses a button cn the side of the door, which in turn operates a drop that closes tho r.ces&ary circuit for pv.tting tho alarm ia wording order for the night. After this is done no ono can eater tho building even if the wires, leading to tha door and window tarings are in full view. If ttjo nlarin connect ing with tho police station has the cir cuit cut an audible alarm on the out side of the building is instantly pet in circuit, so tho building b never without protection. Electricity as a Sltire Tower. The tendency of street railway com panies to substitute electric cars for cabVs cars on their lines is on the in crease, and tho statistics of working1 ex pellees and assets which from time to timo become available to show in every case that the char: ere has been a wiae one. Another confirmation of tho superiority of the eleotrie car over tha cable from a financial point of isvr Is afforded in tho statement of the last year's earnings and expenses of the Denver Tramway Company, which shows that while tho operating ex penses to gross etrnins of thj cablo lines In Denver stood in the ratio of 77 per cent, those of the electric lines were OS per cent., a clear '-9 percent, ia favor of electricity. Jlora Tower for Cjelerm. A distinctively novel feature In bi cycle construction is tho use of an oval sprocket wheel to convey power from the cranks of a safety machine to the driving wheel. The cranks are placed at rijht auplca to the lonr diameter of the ellipse, and it ia claimed that by this arrangement tho rider is given greater povrur. When tho cranks are in tho position that glvea tha rider the least leverage under ordiaary circum stances, tho elliptical sprocket wheel increases the purchase and gives great er pow-r. The resistance is made more uniform than in tho case of the or dinary construction. Fans to Cool the Tattcoreta. An engineer onoao of the Indian rail ways haa introduced an ingenious ap paratus for keeping paasenyer cars cooL A sclf-rcvolvinj fau, arranged to cfltch the air frcm all directions, is fitted be neath each car, and when the train is in motion it provides a cool and pleasant breeze.
