These had an opportunity of joining the movement in Rio Grande Do Sul, but declined to do so because while opposed to Fonseca and attached to the republic, they are also opposed to any division of the republic. The report that Fonseca is hastening preparations for the new elections!, being alarmed at the signs of popular dissatisfaction with a dictatorship, and that he has prom ised to lay down the jtowers he has as sumed as soon as the next congress comes into existence, is untrue. Fon jseca han increased the pay of army officers, who have absolute con trol over the men, the latter being hardly capable of intelligent reasoning and blindly obedient to their superiors. As the soldiers are excluded from vot ing, they feel little interest in questions of civil government.

Dr. Azziz Brazil and Baros C&sil, two of the most prominent members of the junta, have remgued all connection with the revolutionary movement in consequence of differences of opinion in that body.
