The insurgent snip meanwhile hid themselves among tne merchant vesssle. lying in the bay. Aiimiral Da Gam is reported to have ded aboard the French warship. IBOgT OF THE WAR The Brazilian revolution, which thii action of Admiral Da Gains will in all probability bring to a close, began on the night of September 5. 1898, when Admiral de Melio attempted to repeit the coup da main by wnioh he had driven President da Fonaeca from power. While the high government officials were at the opera he seized all the brezilian war vessels in the harbor of Rio de Janeiro and demanded President Peixoto's resigned in, Mello tbongbt the President would abdicate without a straggle, but, instead, he immediately began preparations to bring the rebels to termi. Congress backed up President Peixito. Al though tne rebels had the Seat, con sisting of twenty-.'our battleships, tor pedo boats and armored coasting steam ers, the principal forts which formed defences of the harbor of Rio remained lov.il. Mello, on Sept. JO sent an ultitna tnm to the citzens of Rio. He declar ed tbat if thy did not surrender the city at once bo would recommence the bombardment and level it to the ground. No attention was paid to this communication, an t on Sept 24 th, ships reopened fire. The bombard ment lasted all day sad was continued the next and the next. A reian of terror followed, Banks snd business places were stint up. and them was a great rush for the country. No attempt was made by the insurgents to destroy the city, but in the fire that was aimed at the various governme&t buildinga vaataarnxge was done in ev ery part of the eity. Bursting shells carried destruction into th streets, end many hundreds were killed and wounded. Discontent was general in the city, and Mello was counting on a popular uprising in his interest as n zonserjusnce of the bombardment. At'MIRAL HKXHAMM FAMOUS Ai.'TIO.V. On Jan. 29 Admiral Bnnam fired a shot at an Insurgent warship in de fence of American rights The trouble was brought about by the American vessels the Amy and Glad Tidings, botn of which were laden with otrg 90S con signed to Rio merchants, and neither thought it advisable to approach the docks without assurance of protection, So tbev called on Admiral Benham. who ordered the commander of the De troit to clear bis ship for action and escort the vessels to the dock. The entire fl'et was pnt In readiness for a fight. As soon as tbeBraslllans noticed that the Amy and the Glad Tidings were made fast at the docks, the Triijano fired a musket shot aero.s the bow of the Amy. The Detroit fired a 6-ponnd shot under the bow of the Brazilian vessel. The officers of the TraJanO were surprised, but they fired an npologetic blank cartridge, and the incident ended with the hailing of the I'rajano by Captain Brownson, of the Detroit, who warned the Trojann's cap '.ain to instruct his men to be cnrful ibont the direction in which they fired their innskets. The government flet, consisting of the Nictheroy, the America, the Ballls, the Tiradenter and five torpedo boats booght in Germany, sailed into the harbor of Rio last Saturday.

He violently attacked the government for its administration of the police and its readiness to ignore all great national issues while dealing with some passing emergency.

Within the recollection of the court officials there he'd been no instance of S resort to tUtlOttffs bv practitioners before the local bar, mid the sentiment of lawyers was for a strong punishment of their brethren who had ho disturbed the dignity of the court.
