Germany will be in no haste to recognize
the United States of Brazil, and may even
take hostile steps against the new Govern
ment. The Coburg family will support the
pretensions of Prince Pedro, a grandson of
the late Emperor, to the throne. The Ger
man press refers in a very unfriendly man
ner to the revolutionists.

The news from Brazil is watched with in
tense interest. Public opinion tends to
donlit the permanence of the Republic. The
2k'orth German Gazette referring to the
probable necessity of sending war ships to
protect German interests, says: "Though
the Brazilians dislike the sight of blood,
the revolt may yet endanger the lives of
foreign residents. Tne present wielders of
power must be named to avoid measures
that must lorce European States to inter
fere to protect their countrymen."
The Kreuz Zeitung holds that the recogni
tion oi the Bcpublic is impossible on the
mere success of a pronunciamento; that the
voice ot a constituent assembly must first be
heard. Cable disp-itches to Hamburg firms
assert that tne new Ministry is divided by
fierce personal quarrels, that General Dafon
tccas dictatorial manners irritate his col
leagues, and that bis resignation is desired.
THE FEEI.IXG IX GERMAXY.
Any such item indicating a want of co
hesion in the new government of Brazil
finds prominence in the semi-official press
here. A p-ediction which finds some cred
ence is that the Eepublic will break into
three States equatorial, central and south
ern, the latter having a large German pop
ulation, claiming the protection of the
Fatherland. On the Bourse, lollowing the
Paris impulse, Brazilian loans were sold
heavily, as were also shares or the banks
concerned therein. The Deutsche Bank has
thought it necessary to issue a notice stat
ing that it is not "interested in Brazilian
The members of the Cobourg family, who
are related to Dom Pedro, met at Vienna
yesterday to consider what action they
should take in the event of the appearance
of svstenis of a Monarchist reaction. Tele
grams from Lisbon were read at the meeting
expressing hope of the restoration of the
monarchv. The family feeling is in favor
of an attempt to place Dom Pedro's sailor
grandson, Prince Pedro, upon the throne.
It has been deciaed, however, to await the
arrival of the exiled Emperor.
THE ETJSSIAN SITUATION.
The terms of the trnce between Austria
and Bnssia, which Prince Bismarck forced
upon Count Kalnoky, are already partly
fulfilled on the Bnssian side. The Czar has
stopped the Panslavist Committee from
sending agents into Bulgaria, and peremp
torily warned them not to fostor any agita
tion. The Austrian side brought about the
rupture of the proposed marriage of Prince
Ferdinand to the Princess d'Alencon.
The Austrian Financial Minister re
fused to allow on the Bourse the quotation
of the A.anderbaks loan to Bulgaria Count
Kalnoky has instructed the Austrian Con
Euljin Sofia to modiiy his partisanship in
behalf of Prince Ferdinand. Finally,
Emperor Francis Joseph, though resenting
the suggestion of the session of Trentino to
Italy, has consented to grant to Trentino an
autonomous local administration, separate
from tbe German Tyrol of which it has
hitherto formed a part.
The members of the Italian Tyrol will
henceforth assemble at Trent. The Diet at
Innsbruck supported the separation. Em
peror Francis Joseph has also ordered the
release of several irredentists imprisoned at
Innsbruck, including Rossi and Zampieri,
editors of the Italian Independents who were
convicted of treason.
ONLY FOBSIAL CONCESSIONS.
These concessions amount practically to
little. If the Innsbruck Diet had not voted
for the separation of Trentino Emperor
Francis Joseph would not have acceded to
the proposal. A further reason for his giv
ing his assent is that by doing so a stop was
put to the maneuevring of Signor Crispi,
the Italian Premier, lor the annexation of
Trentino to Italy. Signor Crispi has now
abandoned his intention of visiting Prince
Bismarck at Freidrichsruhe.
The German conrt will leave Potsdam on
Thursday and come to Berlin for the winter
season, which promises to be the most
brilliant ever known to the Empire, and to
make up for the long periods of mourning.
Numerous fetes will be given at the Schloss.
Household Minister Paesdorff has advised
the dinlomatic corps of the changes in the
Emperor 'William's visit to Darmstadt is
fixed tor the 8th ult. The Emperor intends
to quarrel with the Grand Dukeof Hesse
for the part taken by him in the Morier af
fair. TWO XOVEBS SEPARATED.
The Emperor still withholds his assent to
the betrothal of his sister Margaret to the
Czarowitz. Prince Bismarck is reported as
approving the match. The Princess herself
is willing, since meeting her suitor at Ath
ens. The reluctance of the Emperor is
attributed to the weekly constitution of the
Czarowitz. The fact that the Princess is a
Lutheran is no obstacle to the match, as she
is ready to join the Greek Orthodox Church.
Prince Bismarck is expected to take part
in the debate on the second reading of the
Socialist bill in the Beichstag on Tuesday.
The elections in Berlin for renewing one
third of tbe members of the Municipal
Council resulted in tne return of 34
Progressists and 6 Socialists.
A CLOUD CEKTAUi TO BURST.
England's Latest Scnndnl at Present on the
Tongues of Everybody.
OT CABLE TO THE PIsrATCH.1
-London, November 23. England is
under a cloud of scandal, already briefly
alluded to in these columns, that is now cer
tain to burst and involve honored names in
disgrace perhaps even greater than the
recent "modern Babylon" disclosures
brought upon the families of the partici
pants in those crimes. Although everv
possible influence has been brought to bear to
keep the loathsome story quiet, it is to-day
on the tongues of everybody, and is only
kept out ot tbe newspapers throngh the
severe and unjust libel laws that han per the
English press. But even this safeguard for
the guilty will not avail when Parliament
meets, for Labouchere and other enemes of
hereditary aristocracy have obtained the de
tails of the scandal and will insist upon an
investigation. It may even come out before
then, since the Earl of Euston, whose name
has been mentioned in connection with this
case, to-day swore out a warrant against the
editor of the Xbrth London Press, who is
also a leader writer on the Star, charging
him with criminal libel in publishing arti
cles charging Euston with being corcerued
in the scandal.
"Whether this is a bluff on Euston's
part, or whether he believes he can clear
himself and does not care what becomes of
the others implicated, remains to be seen.

sudden deaths that have occurred there, has
resulted in proving that 33 of the victims

Female fortune tellers supplied the wives
of the victims with poison. Fifty-seven ar

rsnCIAL TELEGRAM TO TUX PISPATCn.1
Haktfoed, Conn., Xovember 23. In
the early part of this week Captain Leach,
of Putnam, was assaulted by Frank Merrill.
Leach was coming out of a store when Mer
rill fell upon him and beat him
almost into insensibility. Behind the
assault lies a very " unique story.
Some months ago Officer Arnold, of Putnam,
was called upon to arrest a tramp, who
was going through Putnam, begging from
house to house. He appeared against him
in court, and the follow was sent to jail.
It subsequently tnrned out that the
"tramp" was a respectable citizen of Newark,
X. J., who in some way not explained, hap
pened to be in temporarily destitute
circumstances in Putnam. He and his
friends felt indignant at the treat
ment he had received, and seemed
to consider Officer Arnold the cause of it.
They accordingly hired Frank Merrill.a
professional prize fighter, well known in
Newark, to go to Putnam and "do up"
Arnold when he found a favorable opportu
nity. Merrill went to Putnam and entered the
employ of the New York and New England
Bailroad. He waited some time before he
found the chance to make the at
tack Some one of whom he inquired told
him that Officer Arnold was in a certain
saloon. Merrill went to the saloon and
found a man jnst coming out He asked
him if Arnold was inside. It so
happened that Officer Arnold was not in
side, but Captain Leach, whoae first name
is Arnold, was. The stranger thought that
Merrill referred to Leach, and said: "Yes,
here he comes now."
Merrill, supposing Leach was Arnold, be
gan to beat him and abused him fearfully
before the amazed bystanders interfered.
Merrill was arrested and is now in jail.
Leach is confined to his bed.
BEGGS HAS A STRONG CASE.
One of tbe Cronin Suspects In No Dancer of
rFPZCIAI. TK.EOKAM TO THE DIEPATCH.:
CHICAGO, November 23. On the open
ing of the Cronin trial this morning Attor
ney Forrest arose and said that he had been
inlormed that his witness, Thomas Lynch,
was too ill to appear, and that he would
therefore waive Lynch s testimony and rest
his case. Then followed a consultation be
tween the Judge and counsel for both sides.
"When the talk was over, the Judge
leaned forward and said that a recess
would be taken till 10 o'clock Monday
morning, and that evidence for the defense
was practicall all in, though more could
be introduced on Monday it it was so de
sired. If the defense has no more witnesses
the State will at once begin its rebuttal.
Whether or not the defense will have any
more witnesses no one ran tell. The attor
neys themselves are in the dark. It
is thought, too, however that an
attempt will be made to prove an alibi for
Kunze, as scarcely anything has been done
tor him. Attorney Forrest does not expect
to introduce any "more evidence. Forrest
will probably not have any. Wing certainty
will not and Donahne, the only one leit,
says he cannot tell.
The leelmg arouud the Criminal Court is
that the evidence so far given is sufficient to
convict all the suspects but Beggs. His
attorneys brought some very strong evidence
from respectable members of Camp 20, and
there is nothing now on which the Senior
Guardian can be held.
AN EXPERT DIVER'S SCHEME.
He Destroys a Sob-Marino Tunnel to Pro
vide Work for Himself.
Cleveland, November 23. Several
months ago John O'Brien, of New York,
came here with a picked gang of men to
work on the new water works , tunnel. The
tunnel extends into and under the lake for a
mile from shore. It has been a source
of much trouble to the contractor and
the city because of quicksand which
has threatened that part of it which has
been finished, as well as the lives ot
tbe men employed upon its construction.
O'Brien is an expert in the use of com
pressed air, and he was brought here to
combat the quicksand. He did what he
was hired to do. The quicksand, 80 feet
under Lake Erie and TOO feet from shore,
was successfully passed, and the compressed
air was let out of the tunnel.
The afternoon there was great excitement
in the tnnnel. Bricks tumbled out of the
side and quicksand and water came pouring
in in an unbroken stream. The workmen
fled for their lives and escaped death in a
most remarkable manner. An investiga
tion proved that the brick wall of the tun
nel had been cut purposely, and O'Brien
was suspected of having done it.
The contractor and city officials declared
that O'Brien had cut the wall in order to
prolong his engagement at a fancy salary.
The matter was laid before the grand jury,
where it is said one of O'Brien's picked men
turned State's evidence, and the result was
an indictment against the New York diver.
He was arrested to-night and locked up.
THE FEDERAL STEEL COHPAM
Strengthened by tbe Allegiance of Another
Barbed Wire Firm.
Cleveland, November 23. The com
mittee of the directors of the Federal Steel
Company, Messrs. John W. Gates, of St
Louis, and George "W. Douglass, of New
York, are still at the "Weddell House and
appear to be in no haste to leave
Cleveland. At the coming election of the
officers, which will probably be held in
Chicago next week, Mr. Gates will he
chosen President of the new company, and
Mr. Oliver, of Pittsburg, Vice President.
It is probable that Mr. Douglass will he
elected Secretary. Thus the three promoters
of the consolidation, who have labored early
and late since last March to effect the com
bination, will be well provided for.
Mr. Douglass said this evening that the
onlv important development of the day was
that the Gulf "Wire Companv, of St, Louis,
had consented to cast their lot with the con
solidation. The Gulf Company, he said,
was rapidly coming to the front as a barbed
wire producer in the South, and its future
success was most promising. Mr. Douglass
thought that, without a doubt, the Gulf
Works would remain in operation after its

SriCIAL TELZQBA1I TO THE DI6FATCII.1
Columbus, O., November 23. Governor
Foraker said to-day he did not believe there
was anything in the scheme reported from
Hamilton, in which the brother-in-law of
ex-President Cleveland is said to have been
trying to make arrangements for a Cleve
land and Campbell ticket in 1892. The
thing, he thought to be preposterous on its
face, and he gives Mr. Cleveland the credit
of too much sense to do business that way.
Foraker says Allen O. Myers is the man to
go to the United States Senate, and he
hopes he will get there. He thinks Myers
would make things decidedly interesting.
Governor-elect Campbell hasbeen commu
nicated with and states that the visit of Mr.
Bacon waa of a purely social character, and
that the subject of Fresidental nominations
wa not mentioned between them.
Outside the scramble for minor offices
under Governor-elect Campbell, there has
been little during this week to vary; the
monotony in a political way. The visit of
Hon. Calvin S. Brice caused somewhat of a
flurry among visiting statesmen here, but
Mr. Brice's sudden departure for the East
left a sort of mystery about the Senatorial
situation. Mr. Brice and Mr. Thomas, of
Springfield, are the only ones who have
been doing active work in the past few days.
Thomas is going over the State from place
to place, making personal appeals to mem
bers of the Legislature. The success with
which he is meeting can only be guessed at
from general expressions which have been
heard on the part of Democrats. Some of
Brice's friends who have been over the
State came in to-day, and reported that
Thomas is practically out oi the race, and
that he has received nothing that would be
considered encouraging by a politician.
Prominent Democrats "who are not par
ticularly interested in any one candidate
express the opinion that'there will be no
contest when the time comes to select a Sen
ator. The sentiment in favor of Brice has
grown so steadily that he is substantially
without opposition. One Democrat, who
knows what he is talking about, says Brice
could have been elected without coming
into the State. The friends of the National
Chairman say John A. McMahon, of Day
ton, is the only candidate who can be con
sidered in the light of opposition to Brice.
Mr. Brice left word that he would return
to Ohio after Thanksgiving and look after
his Senatorial chances.

Small Chance of Escape forthe Missing Men
of tbe Manhattan.

New Yoek, November 23. The officers
and crew who escaped from the iron steam
ship Manhattan, of the Old Dominion line,
which was sunk early 'Wednesday by the
coal schooner Agnes Manning, about two
miles off Fenwick's Island lightship,
reached New York this morning. Two
officers and ten men, bringing with them the
body of Chief Engineer C. G. Hayden,
came from New London by the City of
"Worcester. Tbe purser and seven men
came by tbe Stonington boat. From tbe
officers the following list ot the ten missing
men was obtained: Frank LindTos, seaman;
Frank McKenna, fireman; Bichard Bing

Henry Roman, coal passer; James Bider,
colored, waiter; Joseph Davis, colored, pas
senger; James C. Tobin, colored, passenger;
"William Vaughn, passenger.
Captain Jenney said to-day that there was
little chance that the missing men had been
rescued. He is convinced that only one
boat and one life rait floated from the Man
hattan when she went down. Chief En
gineer C. G. Havden had been in the em
plovof the Old Dominion Company for
nearly 20 years. He leaves a widow and

BAKE BUESLAES HAVE BIGHTS
Which tbe Law Must Respect, According to
Governor Hill's Decision.
Albany, N. Y., November 23. A most
interesting hearing was held in the Execu

day last as to whether James Hope, the
noted bank burglar, should be handed over
to the Delaware authorities. Hope was
then under arrest, and in the custody
of Police Inspector Byrnes, of
New York. Mr. Charles W. Brooke
de'ended Hope at the hearing, and the bank
bniglar has been in the Tombs in New York
awaiting the decision of Governor Hill.
Governor Hill to-day decided to revoke the
warrant heretofore issued for the arrest of
Hope on a requisition from the Governor of
Delaware for Hope's removal to that State
to serve out an unexpired sentence. It ap
peared that Hope was compnlsorily brought
into this State from California on a requisi

his release from prison here be was im

Governor Hill has filed an elaborate de

reasonable time to return to California after
his release here, and hence that bis arrest
was premature. The point of law is an in

heretofore been many conflicting decisions.
Hope is now in custody in the city of New

.'SPECIAL TILIPKAM TO THE PISrATCB.l
Helena, Mont., November 23. The
Lower Honse of the Legislature organized
this afternoon in two branches, the Bepub
licans meeting in a hall on Main street and
the Democrats in the Court House. The
Bepublicans had 30 members, two more than
a quorum. The body was called to order
by State Auditor Kenney, and sworn in
by Chief Justice Blake. The organization
was perfected by the election of A. C. Wit
ter, of Beaver Head county, Speaker, and
Benjamin Webster, of Lewis and Clarke
counties, Chief Clerk. A lull list of sub
ordinate officers was also elected, and a recess
was taken until 3 o'clock.
The Democrats organized with Mr.
Blakely, of Gallatin county, as Speaker.
The members were sworn in by a notary
public The doors were closely guarded.
No one was admitted except those holding
certificates of election from county clerks.
This branch also took a recess.
The Senate met at the Court House, but
the Democratic members absented them
selves, and there was no quorum. Lieu
tenant Governor Bickards called the Sen

by Judge Hunt, after which they adjourned
until Monday morning.
Governor Toole to-day issued a proclama

St. Paul, Minn., Novrmber23. Alfred

the hero of an elopement. The girl in the

little miss ot 14. Kitty is the daughter of
Timothy Kenny, a locomotive engineer in
the employ of the Omaha Bailway. She has
been boarding, however, with Mrs. Bear
Young came to St. Paul last spring, since
when he has held a clerical position in the
office of President Oakes, of the Northern
Pacific. He has been boarding at Mrs.
Beardon's,and there fell in love with Kitty.
Her brother heard of Xoung's attention last
week, and told him in so many words that
if he didn't let the girl, absolutely alone he
wonld shoot him, and he showed the weapon
he proposed to do the execution with.
Young fled from the boarding house, but
clandestinely met Kitty, and yesterday the
children ran. away to Hudson, Wis. They
asked two clergymen to marry them, but
both refused. They then tried a subterfuge
which worked to a charm. They went to
the home of Justice Randall, and, under the
names of George Francis Perkins and Etta
Bailey, aged 22 and 18 years, were finally
married. Mr. and Mrs. George Francis
Perkins registered at tbe Central Hotel, in
Hudson, and spent the night there. To-day
they returned to St. Paul, where they put
up at a hotel.
When Timothy Kenny, the girl's father,
learned of the affair he became furious.
After calming down a little he said: "Why,
Kit's only a child. She never had on a
long dress' till three months ago." Then,
walking the floor a few moments, he said:
"I'll never see her again. If she knows
what's best for her she will never come to
her old home again. If I ever meet Young
I'll shoot him on the spot."

The General Snys the People Are Not Yet In
Favor of a Service Pension Ho
Thinks One Should be Es
tablished la 1S05.
New York, November 23. Major Gen
eral O. O. Howard, of the United States
Army, at a meeting of the Military Service
Institute held this afternoon in Military
Hall, on Governor's Island, read a paper on
"The Military and Naval Pensions of the
United States." General Howard said that
the first pension eyer granted was when
Congress, in 1776, acting under a recommen
dation made by Washington, passed a joint
resolution to secure a fair pension to all
those of the late war. It was not until 1818
that Congress granted service pensions; all
those prior to that date being given for dis
ability. Up to 1888 the total number of
Revolutionary pensions of all kinds was
62,069, and these had cost the Government
in round figures $38,500,000. As to the
War of 1812 the speaker said the
total number of beneficiaries
up to June, 1888, were 60,670,
and the amount paid $36,310,256. In 1816
tbe navy and militia were included, and
reaped the same benefit as the army. To
the veterans of the Mexican War and their
families the same pension service was
granted as in the War of 181?, and 24,724
claims were allowed at a cost to the Gov
ernment of about 513,000,000.
In 1862 Congress passed a bill to give to
all those in the army and navy of the
United States a pension upon the same con
ditions granted to the regular army. Thus
the resulting roll of pensioners was very
large, numbering 630,026 and costing the
Government over 51,000,000,000. The Gen
eral advised the appointment of a special
commission of seven to revise all pension
legislation. At present the people were not
in favor of a general service pension. He
considered it right to hegin the payment of
such a pension in 1895, which would be 30
years after the close of the war. General
Howard said that in granting the pensions
he thought it would be expedient to examine
each claim and suspend payment until such

DEATH IN A MINE.
An Incendiary Fire in the Anncoada Work
lugs Nine Men Missing and Prob
ably Suffocated Prospects of
Heavy Financial Loss.
Butte, Mont., November 23. A fearful
disaster occurred in the Anaconda mines
to-day. Flames were discovered by Neal
McCabe, a miner working on the 600-foot
level of the St. Lawrence mine, in a cross
cut and after an unsuccessful attempt to
suppress the apparently small fire
with his coat he got help and
the men tried to drown out the flames. They
were soon driven out of the mine by heat
and smoke, and as the fire occurred at 5
o'clock in the morning, between change of
shifts, only a few were down, all of whom
got out safe.
There was a quantity of powder, in the
lower levels and to save the mine from dis
aster by its explosion several men volun
teered to remove it. A current of air from
the St. Lawrence to the Anaconda sucked
the workings of the former clear of smoke
while carrying the fire to the Anaconda. The
Anaconda consists almost entirely of tim
bers above the 600-foot level, and the resnlt
of the burning of these timbers will be a
cave-in of disastrous proportions. Al
though the presence of a large
amount of carbonic acid gas made
it very dangerous the men willingly volun
teered to take the risk. Two trips were
made successfully but the third was fatal in
two cases. Keller, a brakeman, was over
come on the cage coming up and fell
back into the shaft. John Lyons
was also overcome and fell on the cage
his head striking the timbers when near the
top, and fracturing the skull. Pat Murphy
and Henry Page were overpowered at the
800-foot level. Other men went down to
save them, but had to leave them, having a
narrow escape themselves from suffocation.
The latest report is that there are nine
men belonging to the mine unaccounted for,
and they are undoubtedly dead by this
time. Incendiarism or carelessness are the
two causes assigned for the fire.:
r. The Anaconda Mines constitute the great
est system of copper mines in the world and
the capital is estimated at $20,000,000.

The gala dresses are not a little startling.
Here is a dignified old gentleman arrayed in
a second-hand tunic of a marine, in much
the same plight as to buttons as its owner as
to teeth; near him stands a fine young
village policeman, whose official gravity
is not enhanced by the swallow
tailed coat of a nigger minstrel;
while the background is taken np by
a bevy of village maidens clad in gorgeous
velvet pinafores, who are giggling after the
manner of their white sisters until.they are
fixed by the stern gray eye of the chief
policeman, which turns their expression
into one of that preternatural solemnity
they wear in church. The Court House, a
native building carpeted with mats, is now
packed with natives, sitting cross-legged,
only a small place being reserved in lront
of the table for the accused and witnesses.
The magistrate takes his seat, and his
scribe, sitting on the floor at his side, pre
pares his writing materials to record the
sentences. The dignity with which the old
gentleman adjusts his shirt collar and clears
his throat is a little marred when he pro
duces from his bosom what should have been
a pair of pince-nez, seeing that it was se
cured by a string round his neck, but is in
fact a jew's-harp. With the soft notes of
this instrument the man of law is wont to
beguile tbe tedium of a dnll case. But,
although the spectacle of Lord Coleridge
gravely performing on the jew's-harp in
court wonld a least excite surprise in En
gland, it provokes no smile here.

A CANAL BOAT SUNK.
A River Tragedy Which is Shrouded In
SFZCIAZ, TZLEOKAX TO TBE DISPATCH.
New Yoek, November 23. Early Friday
morning a canal boat was in some mysterious'
manner dashed to pieces in the river near
Dobbs' Ferry and probably all on board
lost their lives. All that is known about
the disaster is what is shown by the frag
mentary wreckage which has been picked
up in the river or has been washed ashore.
This gives evidence, that the boat was sud
denly destroyed by some terrific shock. The
craft was probably the Alice Carley, of West
Troy, Edward A. Dngan, Captain. There
is nothing to indicate the cause oi the acci

DAMON AND PYTHIAS.
Ex-Senator Sewel!, of New Jersey,
Harrison's Boon Companion.
OFTEN CALLED TO THE CAPITAL
To Consult With the President on Matters
A MEMBER OP THE KITCHEff CABINET.
Several Appointments Can be Triced Directly to Bis
President Harrison has a confidental ad
viser in the person of ex-Senator Sewel, of
.New Jersey, who is said to have more in
fluence with him than any member of the
Cabinet. Mr. Sewell is frequently sum
moned to the White House for the purpose
rsrrciAi, telioiiam to thx dispatcim
Teehton, N. J., November 23. The
trip that ex-Senator William J. Sewell, of
this State, took with President Harrison
last week when the latter went duck shoot
ing down in Maryland, has con
firmed the report of Harrison's
affection for Sewell. Ont of all his
political associates, the President selected
the Jerseyman to go off on a quiet little ex
cursion with him. There was a railroad
man also in the party, it is true, but he was
only a chance selection.
It is conceded by those close both to
Sewell and the administration that the
President has made a boon companion and
a confidential adviser of the ex-Senator from
this small Commonwealth. The intimacy
began when both men were in the Senate. It
continued after both had left. It became
firmer when the Indiana politician was
elected President, and it has grown into the
closest and most confident relations during
the months since Harrison became the occu
pant of the White House.
Sewell goes to the White Honse much
more frequent than is gennerally known.
For awhile the Jerseyman's visits to Wash
ington were accorded no significance. It
was supposed be went merely to consult
about appointments for his State. That the
President "had granted the ex-Jersey Sen
ator all his requests for appointments has
been understood from the start, but it was
not supposed that the friendship extended
beyond local favors.
X COXFISENTIAI. ADVISER.
Last week's trip, however, has brought
some interesting inside facts to light. If
William Joyce oewell is not a Pythias to
Harrison as Damon, he comes mightily
near filling that role. Sewell has been let
into all the secrets of the administration
since the inauguration of the President
He has been, so to speak, an ex-officio mem
ber of the Cabinet. It is believed he knew
of the important appointment! before the
That he could haveTgone into the Cabinet
had he chosen is the assertion ot those
posted on the subject. He has been, and is,
the father oonfessor of the administration.
Untold times lias he received a mes
sage at his railroad office in
Camden late in the afternoon.
A few honrs later he was flying toward
Washington, which he reached about dawn.
Occasionally he went to a hotel and break
fasted, but more often he went to a restau
rant, where he was unobserved and un
known. Before 10 o'clock he was closeted with
Harrison, and evening found him back in
Camden as though nothing had occurred.
Sewell has obtained ever thing he sought,
and he has sought things that were not
credited to him. For instance, the naming
of William Walter Phelps as Minister to
Germany was not deemed pleasing to the
'Jersey Senator, owing to the antagonism
known to exist between the men.- As a
matter of fact .
SKWELIi SECEETLT UEQED
the selection. He wanted the brilliant
Congressman out of the way. He blocked
his progress once in a while in controlling
the politics of this State. Since William
Walter went abroad the other William has
had things all his own way. Probably,
however, the Minister to Germany did not
begrudge his rival when the result of the re
cent election over here in Jersey was an
nounced. Why should Harrison pick out Sewell
among all the men in the nation? What is
there about the Jerseyman that makes him
the object of esteem from the Chief Magis
trate? Both men are alike in
many respects, to begin with.
Each is dignified and reserved
in manner. They look serious and solemn
on all occasions, although in Sewel), at least,
there is a good deal of latent humor. Both
are fond of good living in a quiet way.
While Sewell makes no pretensions, he is
really aconnoisseur of merit. This accounts
for the social links that bind the men to
gether. When it comes to intellectual ability and
political sagacity, Sewell certainly gives a
great deal more than he gets. It is un
questionably because the President saw how
able his friend was that he con
cluded to make more than a social
companion of him. Ex-Senator Sewell
does not impress one as a man of big brain.
You are only impressed when you meet him
by his dignity, and possibly a certain degree
of pomposity. But when you have learned
his record and watch his movements in
BUSINESS AND POLITICS,
you discover his cleverness and shrewd
ness. He is a natural politician. As the
leader of the Bepublican party in New
Jersey, he has broken down all obstacles
and reigns supreme. He never compromises,
but always conquers. He does the best he
can with a folorn hope. He might be
more popular were it not for hi?
railroad connections, but he conld not
be more powerful. He is almost as reticent
as General Grant was. He talks very little,
but he listens a great deal. He is exceed
ingly receptive. He hears all there is to be
heard, and remembers every bit of it. He
always makes bis enemies uncomfortable,
and is an aggressive and persistent opponent.
He stands lorever true to his friends.
Bo him a good turn and he keeps you in
miud to return it. There are few politicians
who retain their friends as Sewell does. He
believes in diplomacy in order to accom
plish his purpose, bnt prefers a free field
and no favors. He rarely proffers advice,
but when he does tender it, you can count
on its value.
There are some things Benjamin Harrison
has done that bear Sewell's imprint. There
are other actions that the Jerseyman never
advised. Sewell believes in strengthening
one's position rather than his party. He be
lieves in keeping
THE MAIN CHANCE
in view. Harrison has done this repeated
ly. But Sewell never advises revolntion or
the defiance of public opinion. He is ex
tremely conservative so long as conversation
will win. He would rather be the lever that
moves tho world than be the world itself.
He likes to use agents, whenever it is pos
sible. But Sewell never hesitates to strike
a bold and telling blow when blows become
necessarv. He knows just when to step
over tbe'line that divides conservatism and

Do. Fomeca's Similarity to the Trench
Fugitive Not a Well-Educated Man
or a Politician Dora Pedro's
SPECIAL-TZLKJ BAM TO THZ PlSrATCH.1
New Yoeh, November 23. A. S.
Belens, a native, and until within two
years a resident, of Brazil, said to-day that
while the news of the revolution did not
surprise him, the fact that General De Fon
seca had become the head of the Provisional
Government was almost incredible. It
seems that the General was not only un
known as a politician or a diplomat, but
that he was not even at tbe head of the
army. His fnll name is Deodoro Da
Fonseca. He is not a well-educated
man, and has had no ex
perience whatever in politics. During
the war with Paraguay he made an excel
lent record as a subordinate commander,
and became popular with his brother offi
cers. After tbe war, General Da Fonseca
adopted mnch the same plan as did Bon
langer in France.
The other men are wholly unknown to
Brazilians in this city. They ask each
other who is this Benjamin Constant? Who
are the others? The logical answer is
that they are creatures of General
Da Fonseca men whom he can de
pend upon, but who have never
attained a reputation outside their clubs.
The active Bepublicans in Brazil are a
small majority. Nevertheless, he believes
that the Bepublie has come to stay.
In the first place Dom Pedro has
acquiesced, and that weakened any ef
fort that may be made to reinaugurate
the old regime. Second, the conservative
leaders are too old to make any resistance.
Third, the general population. is too illiter
ate to appreciate at once the difference be
tween a republic and an empire, and the
army will represent to them the ruling
force and its character.
The fall of Dom Pedro has brought out
many stories concerning him. During his
long reign he has had at one time and
another a good deal of property. It has all
gone. A large part of it went to establish
and endow institutions of a charitable
character, such as orphan asylums, schools,
etc At the present time he is absolutely
dependent for a living upon the generosity
of the Provisional Government of Brazil.
He was a man easily imposed
upon, and many a humbug lived
well upon his "beneficence. It has
been widely known that he had democratic
tendencies, but just how they manifested
themselves has not always been clear. For
one thing, he was accustomed to give a pub
lic audience once every week. The audience
chamber wasalargehall,filled with chairs. If
on the day of audience a tramp presented
himself first, be was conducted to the front
seat, and so through the list. Tbe Emperor
followed rigorously tbe rule of listening
first to the man who had the first seat, no
matter how important might be the person
age next in order.
Perhaps this unique Emperor's strangest
exhibition occurred in Bio de Janeiro. He
attended a performance at a theater.
In the course of the evening the
orchestra played the "Marseillaise."
The Emperor arose in his box
and remained standing until the close of tbe
piece a tribute to republicanism thatas
suredlv would not have been given by any
other Emperor in the world.
JOKING WITH SEA-GULLS.
How Jolly Tnru Amuse Themselves at the
Expense of tbe Birds.
Sea birds are always interesting objects to
voyagers. They follow a vessel sometimes
all the way across, ever restless and untir
ing. The gulls particularly, with their
long, swift wings, realize the highest powers
of endurance, and fly with ease against the
severest storms. Some say that these birds
never visit the earth except to deposit
their eggs; otherwise they lire constantly
between the sea and the sky. In fine
weather they fly high in tbe air, descending
with great rapidity to seize, the fishes on tbe
surface of the water. The symmetry and
strength of the gulls are remarkable, show
ing how nature has adapted them in every
particular for the purpose of long flight.
Their pectoral, or breast muscles, are one
solid mass of firm, hard muscle, and
their bones are hollow, having no marrow
in them. Sleep is not necessary to them:
or, rather, they rest upon their wings and
allow themselves to be cradled by the
breezes, whose violence neither worries nor
frightens them. On the other hand, they
seem to leel a fierce delight in the fury of
the storm which, convulsing tbe waves,
brings up the dead fishes and mollusks.
Sailors are very fond of playing off a joke
upon the gulls, which are always hovering
about the ships. They take three or four
pieces of sail ..vine, about six feetin length;
these are tied togetherin the middle, and to
the end of each a small piece of blubber or
fat is attached tightly and then thrown into
the sea. A gnll comes along and
swallows one piece; another then sees
there is plenty to spare, and swal
lows the next; perhaps a third bird takes
possession of another; bnt as they are all
attached to the sail yarns, whenever they
try to fly away one or the other is compelled
to disgorge bis share, and this is continued
to the tantalizing suspense of the poor gulls
and the great fun of the passengers and

A Method of Filling: Teeth In the Mouth of
Dentist, la Globe-l)emocrat.iJ
In the past decade dentistry, along with
other arts and sciences has made wonderfnl
advances. Tea years ago such a thing; as
extracting or filling teeth by an electrical
process was unknown, but now it is quite
generally used. This method is considered
infinitely superior in every way to that of
using anaesthetics. The latter has in many
cases proved fatal to the patient, and irom
that fact are not regarded in a pleasant

harmless and can be used with safety
even upon a child.

also made progressive strides, and a set of
teeth can now be fitted to the mouth with
