""" -ANewYoek; December 3. The first vessel
i.Vto leave 'Brazil since the revolution, whiph
tihu reached the United States, arnyed,-at
fthis port this morning. It was the steamer
Portuguese, of the Bed Cross line. The
steamer came to the agent, Shipton Green,
.with a cargo of sugar and .rubber. She
ibronght no passengers. She came from
sv3W -'Pernambnco and Para, bringing the mail
r'- and newspapers from those ports. She left
Para on November 21, a week after the Be
V public was declared. A Dispatch man
had a talk to-day with Captain Frederick
. -1Hews, of the Portuguese. Captain Hews
H'ye ieft Pernambnco "-on November 12
" two days, I believe, before the new govem-
ment was proclaimed in Bio Janeiro.
Everything was quiet and as smooth as
ever in Pernambuco'wheu we left. "When
-we steamed into the harbor of Para on the
.morning of the 16th we saw a new flag fly
ing from the Brazilian ships."
"WHAT THE FLAG IS USE,
Captain Hews drew a diagram of the new
flag for the reporter. It looked like this:
The two triangular divisions of the flag are
red, the central portion is white, and the
five-pointed star is blue.
"I wondered what it all meant," said
Captain Hewi, "and I did not make out
until the pilot came aboard and told us that
there had been a change of rulers, and thai
. the monarchy was overthrown. 1 remained
.at Para five days. I was ashore a great
deal of the time, and if onr agents had not
. "told me, and I had not seen the new flag
flying, I should .not have known that Dom
jrPedro had been deposed. ' -
Usverjtninff was going aa as quietly as
rWXt herte-wbKfao-erowda nOHrstreitsi
no parades of soldiers, no speechmaking or
''loud talking.' The soldiers and the authori
ties seemed to be in favor of the new state of
things, and that was apparently the seati
' 'ment Of the people as well.
'r 'f ' .'COTJLDH'l TOUCH THE CABLES.
, "Superintendent Jordan, .of the Brazilian
- Telegraph and Cable Company told me that
the new Government attempted to takeen-
. tire control of the cables, but he protested
. " that the cable was a private enterprise.
He promised, however, to submit all mes
sages to the inspection of the Chief of
Police, and to send away nothing detri
mental to the new Government. On this
, basis the matter was settled.
1'The coup d'etat of the revolution at Para
. was accomplished dramatically, but with
only a show of force, and -with the same
skill that characterized the movement at
Bio Janeiro. The overthrow of the im-
. .' ' "perial authorities at the capital of the
v" province did not take place until the 16tb,
-"" the day following the momentous'e vents."
r3. Papers printed during the five days im-
v$. mediately succeeding the revolution "were
c ' received to-day by Shipton, Green and
gf Charles B. Flint. An interesting account
-' ; of the usurpation is given by O 'Liberaldo
jv Do Para, the organ of the Xibcral party,
in its issue or js ovember 17. It follows:
y SO BLOODSHED NECESSARY.
' '-"Great events have excited the people of
this capital, but, happily, no blood has been
Cehed, thanks to the prudence of the honor
able administrator of this province. Early
in' the morning the news was spread that it
was. intended to take by force thePresi-
dental chair. At 1 o'clock in the afternoon
"tuere arrived at the Presidental palace a
commission, the members of which were
Dra. Jose Paes de Carvalho, Justo

and a Provisional Government, in the name
oftheofficers and soldiers of the regular

- Thechange of Government had not been en-

his subordinates resigned tnelr commissions,
because they sympathized with the republi-

His Excellency then demanded protection
of the director of the, military forces, but it
was refused. In this situation His Excel

who were ready to defend' his authority

"His Excellency once ' more energetically
declared that only because, compelled by the

"After that His ' Excellency left the
Talace, followed by Dr. Paes de Carvalho
and many friends. These are the facts
which preceded the proclamation of the
Federal Bepublic. "Without comment we
place them before bur readers.
A.CTED WITH PETJDEKCE.
"It is just to recognize that Dr. Paes de
- Carvalho acted with prudence in avoiding
the. trouble that might have arisen on such
an occasion. The Liberal party, of which
we are the organ, feels profoundly that in
stitutions which furnish the prosperity of
the country are destroyed by a movement
that cannot be called democratic. That,will
be the judgment of history."
The policy of the Liberal party was thus
announced by its organ, the paper quoted
above, on November 18: "In the difficult
situation in which the country is thrown by
a revolutionary blow to the institutions
founded with our political indepen
dence, the Liberal party cannot fofd
its arms. It is necessary to define
our attitude, in the face of the new situa
tion inaugurated by the proclamation of the
Bepublic This is not the moment to dis
cuss the excellencies of various forms of
government, or to seek to restore the
monarchy. Judgment, on' their respective
merits belongs to the severe impartiality of
AIT EVTDEHT TACT.
The irrefutable fact that is imposed upon
the pnblio mind, no -matter which may be
the dominant opinion, is that the revolution
has triumphed right in the heart of the Im
perial Government; that the chief of the
nation has been forced to abandon the coun
try -with his family, and that the Bepublic
which was then proclaimed lias been ac
cepted and recognized without resistance, if
not in all Brazilian 'territory, at least in. the
most important proYitictjC- 4
"Everything lem'ahdsihe prtidence of
patriotic Liberals, with a Sincere adhesion
to the new order of things. Beflecting nat
urally about this, momentous crisir, and
understanding , their responsibility on ac
count of the position, they oc
cupy in the Liberal party, conspicuous
citizens have resolved to adhere to the Be
publican movement,, advising "their as-,
sociates to adopt it without any reservation
'restriction. They will gTye a new'organiza

GEN EBALLY ACCEPTED.
"We have the satisfaction of announcing
that this resolution has been generally ac
cepted by the Liberal party. "We commit
ourselves to the new form of Government in
the fullest spirit of co-operation in the reali
zation of its elevated idea of a democratic
administration of public afiairs."
The proclamation of the leaders of the
Liberal party is as follows:
"In the face of the political events just
come to pass, changing the form of govern-,
ment of the country, patriotism impels us to
give our support to the new authorities,
with the intention to maintain order
and tranquility, on which depends the
continuation of the development of the
public weal, and the realization of the
grandest future of the Brazilian nation.
"We invite, therefore, all ourpplitical friends
who have followed us in the past to adhere
to the republican movement, constituting
themselves hereafter the Democratic party,
under which flag we will continue to strive
for the common interests of the country."

leaders ot the Liberal party Eo violence

An Uneventful Meeting of the Democratic

IfrECIAL TKLEfinAU TO TUE DIBrATCn.l
Haerisbueo, December 3. The meet
ing of the Democratic State Executive Com
mittee in this city to-day was attended by
four of the seven members, and the session
was short'and uneventful. The great fall
ingofl in the Democratic vote of Phila
delphia at the recent election was discussed,
but the committee having no power to take
action on the alleccd treachery,
the subject was soon dropped. The
.main purpose of the meeting was to
divide the State into nine districts, each to
:be represented by a chairman, whose dnty it
was to see that the several .counties embrac
ing his district were properly organized.
The committee performed this part of its
work, and the several chairmen will be
elected at meetings to be convened in vari
ous portions of the State on the 13th -of
January next A resolution was adopted
establishing the headquarters of the Demo
cratic State Committee in this city.
The members present at the meeting to

talked of matters. One Southern Demo

FEOHA STJLIT COBSESPONDEHT.J
"WashihqtoS, December 3. The. read
ing of the President's message was the only
subject to occupy the, time of Congress, to
day. In the House there was no attempt
made to listen to its contents, and the hum
of conversation, the rustling of paper, and
the calling of pages would have prevented
even the most desirous from following its
reading with certainty. In the Senate,
however, more than usual attention was
paid to this, the first annual message of
President Harrison. Senators Evarts,
Dawes and Edmunds were unflagging in
the interest they displayed, aud Senator
Gorman read it to himself from a copy of
his own, as being less tiresome than listen
ing to the somewhat monotonous tones ot the
MANY MEN, MANY MINDS.
Of course, .opinions on the message differ,,
according to the political bias of the parties
possessing them, but the general belief is
that it is a very creditable document. The
Bepublicans are much pleased with the
manner in which the President treats the
financial affairs of the country, and with his
snrcrestiana refrardincr Federal aids to
education. The Democrats recognize with
pleasure a conservative tone running
through the document.
By far the most interesting part of the
paper to members of both parties was its
references to the colored question 'and the
Federal control of elections. This subject
is one that is recognized on all sides as being
the most important to receive the attention
of Congress, and the one which will provoke
the most discussion and occupy more time
than any other to be broached this session.
HO "MISTAKING THE MEANING.
On this- subject the President's words
have been carefully chosen, and, though not .
openly threatening, Southern members ad
mit that there is no mistaking their .mean
ing. One gentleman, who did not care to have
his name accompany the statement,remarked
that the President would probably . have
written very differently on this point if his
message had been indited before the recent
.election in Ohio. He thought Mr. Har
rison's white man's party of the South had
suddenly become a very black-man's party,
and that the change had been brought about
by the President's seeing nearly the whole
at the colored vote in Ohio, an important
factor in the State, leave his party. For'
this reason the President is nbw champion-
jag.the cause of the black; man in the hope
01 winning bacJc.hu vote. .,
MUCH BETWEEN THE XINES,
Bepresentatlve Catchings, of Mississippi,
one of the most intelligent and best informed
of the Southern members, and representing
a particularly blafek district, was- much in
.earnest when he commented on this portion
of the message. "There is much-to be read
"between the lines,"-said he; "this is the im
portant part of the whole message to the
South, in my opinion. The power to- take
the whole direction and control of the elec
tion of members of the House of Bepre
sentatives is clearly given to the general
Government A partial and qualified su
pervision of these elections is now provided
for by law, and, in my opinion,- this law
may be bo strengthened and extended as to
secure, on the whole, better results than can
be attained by a law taking all the processes
of such election into Federal control.
There, you see, the President says he is not
in lavor or complete control oy a eaerai au
thority 01 tne elections 01 tne country.
AT TTABIANCE WITH SHEBMAN.
"The bill which Senator Sherman intro
duced last Congress, and which he is seek
ing an early opportunity to reintroduce'this
session, provided for the control of 'all the
processes of election' by the General Gov
ernment Under that bill the elections in
Massachusetts, Pennsylvania andv other
Northern States would be as much con
trolled as those in any Southern State. And
the people of the North rebelled at the very
suggestion of interfering with, their elec
tions in any way, conscious of the fact that
they had already placed sufficient safe
guards around the ballot box. The senti
ment is so great among Northern men that
the President sees that Mr. .Sherman's bill
would be beaten, if brought to a vote, by,
the members ot his own party. Conse
quently, he does not advise the adoption of
that measure, but recommends the extension
of the present existing Haw, so as to arrive
at the same results' as would accrue from the
Sherman bill, without interfering with the
elections of Northern States.
WHAT HAEEISON HINTS AT.
"Now, what the President is hinting at is
the bill which Mr. Houk, of Tennessee, in
troduced in the last House. By this meas
ure the elections in any Congressional dis
trict may be placed under Federal control
by the petition of 100 electors of that dis
trict. With this bill in operation itwonld
be not difficult lor 100 negroes to petition for
Federal control of the elections in every dis
trict of the South, but in the North neither
party would desire the interference of the
General Government, and the 100 names
would not be forthcoming. Such legislation
would, therefore, be purely sectional in its
operation. Now, the Democrats of the
South are fully as conscious of the purity .of
their elections as are the Bepublicans of the
North, and they have as great repugnance
to Federal interference;
A MEMOEABIiB FIGHT, PEBHAPS. "
"If the suggestion of the President is
carried out, and the Houk bill pushed as a
party measure, the Democrats of the House
wilbresist its passage by every means per
mitted by parliamentary procedure. It is
on this point that the fight will come which
will make this Congress a memorable

,who- was one ot the candidates for the
Gubernatorial nomination in his State this

John Kinsinger and Charles E. Downs, on
the charge of robbing freight cars in
the trains on which they were employed,
and the issuing of warrants for many
others. The trial of Charles'' Downs
commenced this morning before Mayor Gay
ley. Downs was a brakeman on a local
freight and made a cqnfession. He said,
the first he knew of thieving was on April
10, last year. One day at Caledonia a
quantity of clothing, etc., was abstracted
from a car, and upon another occasion, at
Martel, a car was opened and three ladies'
work boxes were taken and presented to the
wives and girls of the men implicated.
Downs explained the mode of abstraction,
as follows: In nearly every way car soma
boxes of through freight, were found, and.
these were the boxes tampered with. Goods
were always taken from freight consigned
to points beyond the New York, Pennsyl
vania and Ohio. It is claimed a regular
commission business was done at Dayton by
the suspected men. Clothing, dress goods,
boots and shoes, whisky and nearly every
thing suffered. A large number of tbe offi

Mr. Singerly,. in his affidavit in support
of the bill in canity npon which the in
junction was granted, says he was a credi
tor, to a-very large amonjjt, of Lewis S. Cox,
who transacts business in the city of Phila
delphiaahd elsewhere, as Lewis S. Cox & Co.
"His debt to me," says Mr. Singerly,
"exceeds all his other debts combined. In
addition to a.Iarge mill and factory owned
and conducted by him, he also, prior to
July 1,1889, conducted in his own name, as
Lewis S. Cox, a large retail business at 1220
Chestnut street Philadelphia. On July 1,
1889, or aboutthat date, I purchased from
him the business of said store, together
with the entire stock-in-trade thereof, in
consideration of the sum of about $147,000,
the entire amount of which was charged 10
my account, and thereby paid in full.

"I then took full, entire, complete and

The bill in equity, after giving the facts
in tho affidavit, recites that the direction to
levy npon the plaintiffs property was in
pursuance'ofa fraudulent combination be
tween Cox .and Yietor, entered into
for the purpose of hindering, delaying,-
and ., defrauding the plaintiff,
who is .the principal creditor of Cox,
not only by preventing the plaintiff from
collecting 'the, claim he owns against Cox,
or any part thereof bnt by intimidating,
annoying, and .oppressing him; .by levying
upon bis -property., .under the pretense that
it belonged to. Coxand-that in pursuance
of the jBonspirjcy,-Coxf agreed to-acttBe'
representative and agent ot Vietor, and of
the parties for whom Vietor stands as trus
tee, and with the full knowledge and concur
rence of Yietor, and that in pursuance of
the said fraudulent conspiracy the levy
upon the property at 220 Chestnut street
was ueuiucu w uc uiauc.
NOT A LEGAL TBTJTSTEE.
The plaintiff avers that under these cir
cumstances Yietor is not in law the trustee
of a trust judgment, but as the agent of the
judgment debtor becomes in law an assignee
for the benefit ot creditors. The plaintiff
believes and avers that tbe Sheriff's sale, to
be held under the execution, is to be used
and is intended as a means of transferring
the legal title of Cox's property to Vietor,
and which is thereafter to be held by Vietor,
subject to the control and direction and for
the benefit of Cox.
The prayer of the billvis that Cox and
Vietor oe restrained from ' further prosecu
ting the execution; that the Sheriff be en
joined Irom keeping possession of the goods
at 1220 Chestnut street, and offering them
for sale, and that tbe acts and doings of
Vietor and Cox be declared to constitute an
assignment for the benefit of creditors, with
preferences contrary to the statute, and that
a receiver be appointed by the court to take
possession of all of Cox's assets, and to ad
minister the same according to law and
under the direction of the court.
THE INJUNCTION GRANTED.
Judge Gordon granted tbe special in
junction prayed for, and fixed the security
at $1,000, returnable within five days.
A transcript of the $185,000 judgment
note has been entered in the Montgomery
county court, and the. Sheriff of that
county has levied upon the residence and
other property of Mr. Cox, at Ogontz. In
New York, Justice Patterson granted at
tachments against the property of Lewis S.
Cox & Co., in that State, in a suit brought
by Vietor 8s Achelis for $34,469, represent

was a good attendance, more than 19 sea

of Indiana, was elected Cfcftirswa
of the caucus, to sueeeed the
late Bepresentative Cox, of New York, Mr.
Carlisle having, declined tho post Follow
ing a time-honored custom, the Bepabliean
majority, had signified their willingness to.
allow the Democratic minority te retain oae
ot their party in" the employ of the Door
keeper, and the caucus to-night' selected
Isaac Hill, now' an assistant sergeant-at-
1 arms, as the employe who should be so re
tained, and made it his duty to preserve tne
secrecy of the caucus.
Messrs. Wilson, of "West' Virginia, and
Blanchard, of Louisiana, were re-elected
secretaries of the 'caucus. "When these pre
liminaries had been disposed of, Bepre
sentative Oates, of Alabama,, offered a reso
lution providing for the. appointment of a
committee of 15 members, with ex-Speaker
Carlisle as chairman, to undertake tbe care
ofthepolitical.interestsof the minority, or
to discharge the duties of what is commonly
known as.a "Steering Committee." Oppo
sition immediately developed. Bepresenta
tive Blount, of Georgia, strongly objected
to tbe delegation of individual powers aud
rights to any committee, aud found a num
ber of other reasons, why the resolution
should not be adopted.
Mr. Breckenridce, of. Arkansas, was also
opposed to the resolution, and moved that it
be laid on the table. Mr. Breckinridge, of
Kentucky, suggested the appointment- of a
committee ol three members, with powers
corresponding to those of an executive com
mittee, of whose decision an appeal might be
taken to the committee of fifteen, which in
turn might call the caucus together. Mr.
Crane, of Texas, moved, as a further sabsfl
tute, the appointment ot a committee of five
members, to keep the Democratic Bepre
sentatives , advised of the movements and'
plans of their opponents, and to call the
caucus together when necessary.
Finally all the motions were laid aside for
the present, and. the caucus adjourned.

Louisvilie, December 3. GeorgeLytle,
coloredj died yesterday morning of heart
trouble under, circumstances that will only
be believed by a ivn of the superstitious.
Sunday evening be and his wife. attended
Zion Colored Church, .on Fifteenth street,,
and he created a, sensation during the serv
ices by rising and telling the congrega
tion that he felt as if he was going to
die. He stated that he was in splendid
health, but a mysterious feeling that
was indescribable seemed to tell him that
his death waa near at hand. He slept well,
during the night, hut early in the morning
he found it difficult to breathe. , .
He becamevery ill, and a physician was
sent for. A few minutes after the messenger
was dispatched his wife tried to arouse him,
but received no response ; and after an in
vestigation it was discovered that he was
dead. Coroner Miller was summoned, and
returned a verdict of death from heart
failure. Lytle leaves a. wife and a number
of children. His death has had1 a startling
effect upon the other members of the church,

Poet wasne, lNrt.,December3. Quite
a stir has.beed caused in church circles here
by an attempt by some members of the
Emmanuel Lutheran Church to prevent
the funeral of John O. Goenges, a member
of the congregation, from being ' conducted
at tbe church. The deceased was a respecta
ble citizen;- -and the objection raised grows
out of the fact that he was a saloon keeper.
The relatives, of the dead man made a
stubborn fight- for their right, as they
termed it,, and after repeated, meetings of
the congregation it was decided, against the
objections of a large minority, to allow the
services to be held at the church.
The case presents a novel featui e from the
fact that the congregation of Emmanuel
Church is composed wholly of German
Americans, and their objections to the sa
loon business is' thus, made public for the

At the start tbe fights took place in the

"WASHiNOTON.December 3. Sir Julian,
Pauncefote, the British Minister, and
other members of the Diplomatic Corps' are -very
indignant at the shabyb treatment
which they received at the Capitol to-day,
and it is quite likely there will be an in-'
vestigation of the affair. One sec-'
tion of the House gallery is re-.
served for the use of the foreign
visitors, and the seats in it are under,
the control of the Secretary of State. On
nearly every occasion of unusual interest,,
the House gallery is reserved for the use of
the -foreign visitors, and the seats in it are
tinder the control of the Secretary of State. , '
On nearly every occasion of unusual inter
est the members of the House manage to
have this gallery thrown open to their
families and friends, regardless of the
rights of the diplomats.
DECIDEDLY MOKE SZBIOI7S. t
To-day the trouble over this matter was
more serious than, usual, and the persons
entitled to the seats, including Sir Julian
and his friends, were rudely refused the
opportunity to occupy them. When the
crowd had become so great that every seat
in the galleries was filled, 'the unfortunate ,
sightseers looked longingly upon the vacant
places in the diplomatic gallery-
A number sought the Doorkeeper, who, ;
either in person or by written order, admit
ted a sufficient number to fill the gallery, in
violation of propriety, courtesy and the
rules of the House, which provide that no
one shall be admitted to the gallery except,
upon presenting a card signed by the Secre
tary pf State. Naturally, members of the'
Pan-American Congress were anxious to be,
present, and, to those who applied, orders;
of admission had been issued by the Secre
tary of State, and, they went to swell, the
number of chagrined -foreign representa
tives. SNUBBED SOUTH AMERICANS.
A number of the South Americans, one of
whom 'was Dr. Nin, of Uruguay,' went in .
upon the floor of the House; -only to-be per
emptorily ordered out. Two ladies; who
were of the party, were told to stand their -ground
by some member , of 1 Congress, and
their very positive, refusal to budge secured
tnem tne privilege 01 staying. . , -
Mr. "Walker Blaine appeared upon the J4ku
scene soon after Sir Julian. Pauncefote and "" 1
his party had gone, and promptly demanded
an explanation of the Doorkeeper in charge, '
by whom he was referred to the Assistant
Doorkeeper of the-House.
A Straw That Shows Bow the Wind Blows
Sir. Bayne Indicates the Drift of
Els Party Toward the Ohio
SrZCIAI. TXXXOBAX TO TBI BU7ATCBU
"Washington, December 3. The pro
ceedings on the floor of the House to-day re- )
moved whatever doubt may have heretofore
existed as to who would be chair
man of the "Ways and Means Commit
tee in this Con cress and leader of
the Bepublicans. Tne Chairman of this
Commitee is by long-established custom 'a
member of the Committee onBules and
leader of the party on the floor.
Judge Kelley, of Pennsylvania, Was
chairman of the committee in 1883, when
the tariff act of March 3 was passed, and
thinks his long term of service and devotion ''
to the protection policy entitles him to the
honor asain. There has been a general
impression, however, that the old man
would be shelved if Beed became Speaker,
and this impression has now deepened into
a general conviction that McKinley, the
Pennsylvaman's protege, will be promoted
over the head of his tutor.
So general is this understanding that tha
Bepublicans already recognize McKinley
as the party leader on the floor, and the
Ohian assumes direction as if it were a set
tled fact- McKinley has never here-'
tofore taken a very prominent .part
in general debate on the floor, but he Jias
thorough command ot himself, and the re
spect ofhis colleagues, so tnat tne leader
ship will fall upon his shoulders easily.
The first indication of who would take
Beed's place was given just after the read
ing of the President's message, when Mc
Kinley arose and moved its reference to the
committee of the whole.' A mo
ment later Tom Bayne, of Pittsburg, one of
Beed's chief lieutenants in tbe Speakership
fight, rose with a motion that when the
House adjourned it would meet on Thurs- .
day. As he spoke he turned from
the Speaker to McKinley, to see if tbe
motion met his approval, and on receiving a
nod, proceeded with his remarks; The man
ner in which Bayne performed this little act
of courtesy to McKinley, paying no atten
tion to Cannon and the other ex-Speakership
candidates, showed plainer than words the'
part McKinley was to play in the Pifty-first
