Clatiudo de Querroz, governor of Ceara,
has been deposed. Some days sgo the
general government, in conformity with
the sunxention of the commander of the
second military district and witli that of
the directors of the Cearea military
school gave orders for removing the
Eleventh batallion of infantry from the
capital to Maranguape. As soon as the
batallion left the city the povernor's
enceiy'a resolved to attack him. The
cadets of the military school formed the
principal nucleus of the insurgent
forevs. Aided by armed civilians, the
aitillery belonging to the garrison and
marines ol the gunboat Bracannot also
took part against the governor, who in
trenched himself at the official residence
with the police force and 100 men, who
had lieen brought from the interior by
two promintnt politicians. The fight
commenced at 6 p. m. with a skrrniish
bet -a pen the cadets and the mounted
police. The latter were driven back,
and the inaiirgents marched on the of
ficial residence, which al the same time
was bombarded by the artillery. The
fighting kept up all night and on the

It Is a Much More Serioai Affair Than Was
at First Reported.
Caicaoo, March 18 The failure ol
Michael Schweisthal, the private banker,
loomed up today blacker than ever con
jeelured. Assignee Lanehurt gave a
statement of the assets and liabilities in
the county court this afternoon, placing
the liabilities at $380,518 and the assets
at $412,882. He said there were $132,
000 worth of certificates on deposit,
which Schweisthal is believed to hold.
The startling announcement was made
that of the $205,888 scheduled as doubt
ful and slow assets, $194,000 was due
from the Atchison Steel and Spring
Works, against whom a $50,000 judg
ment was entered today. Besides the
scheduled liabilities, there is an un
known contingent indebtedness, of
which sunt $15,000 has already ap
peared. It is estimated the assignee
will be able to pay about 30 cents on
the dollar. It was charged in court to
day that Schweisthal had prefaced his
assignment by transferring considerable
property to friends, and also that before
the bank's doors closed he allowed his
intimates to withdraw their deposits.
TEE NEBRASKA G0VEENOR CASE.
A Move to Have tho Case Reopened for An
Lincoln. Neb. March IS. On Tuesday
next ex-Governor Terry will move in
the state supreme court for reopening the
case of Thayer vs. Boyd. This announce
ment causes surprise. Thayer was out
of town when the federal supreme court
mandate was served on the judges of the
slate court Inst Tuesday. He says he is
impelled to this action by the earnest
solicitation of leading men of the state.
His attorneys will base their argument
on the theory that the United States
supreme court decision merely overruled
the demurrer of Governor Thayer to Gov
ernor Boyd's answer: therefore it is only

What G.ncral Miles Bays of ths Regular
Troops and Siticoal Guard.
Washington, March 20 General Nel
son A. Miles, in an Interview, shak
ing of tne ariry and navy and national
guard said :
In projwrtioii to our wealth and imputa
tion Hie army has been reduced to the ex
treme minimum. It is small but most i-Hi-cient.
In intelligence, courage and patriot
ism it will compare favorably with any in
the world. The same may be naid of the
national guard, yet in order lo have them
thoroughly eijnlpped and prepared one of
two lliings must lie done. Either t lie press
of the country mut tell the plain truth and
educate the public mind up to our real con
dition and necessities, or we must meet some
disaster that may check our progress, and
burden us with a national debt that would
Inst us fur another generation. Too much
l expected of our navy. It is ludicrous to
think of holding; the navy resonsible for
4",of)0 miles of frontier. The fortifications
will wime day receive from the American
people the consideration the defenses de
serve. I he necessity lnr a mobilization ol
the regular army and national guard must
Is! apparent to every thinking man. The j
object of the national encampment, to be '
held hi August, lw.i3. will Is? to promote the
ethciency of the national guard, to give the
officers ezierience in handling large bodies j
of troops, and to promote a fraternal feeling
between the state troops from all parts of
Fur Seals oil Graj'i Harbor.
SEATTLE, Maicb 20. While the Micb-j
igan, which arrived today, was stemming !
along the coast, off Gray's harbor,
Captain Gravis spoke of the sealing
schooner Umbrena. of Victoria. The
schooner was in the midst of a school of
fur seals going northward. The water
seemed fairly alive with them. They
were swimming about and jumping oat
of the water by the score. The TTm
hrena was drifting along le'surely, hav
fng six small boats out, and the' crew
had good success shooting the seals.
Captain Graves says the schooner will
have a heavy catch. She is the same
sealer which was damaged during a
storm off the coast a few weeks ago, and
she had to put in at Victoria for repairs.
I The other sealers have gone north, hav
' ing given np ail prosect of a catch down
along the coast.
Sews of the 8ealers.
Victoria, B.C.Mch.22 A letter was re
ceived Eiiday from one of the crew of the
Oscar and llattie. The schooner was in
Clcptuet March 7, with thirty skins. Three
others, the Triumph, Maybell anu Min
nie, were in the same place. The only
schooner with skins was the Minnie.
The schooner K. B. Marvin and sapp
nire were in Lahausett when the letter
was written. The weather hits been
disagreeable for the past month.
The Vancouver sealer Beatrice has re

An Alliance With Argentine.
London, March 20, A Buenos Ay res
dispatch to the Times says: The
effusive civilities between the American
hVet and the Argentine authorites have
given rise to a report of an alliance.
During the difference between the
United States and Chili undoubtedly
the republic coquetted with the Wash
ington government. The Argentine
minister has been recalled to explain
the steps taken in the matter, as the
government is ignorant of affairs in
Overproduction of Ootton.
Washington, March 18 The March
report of the statistical department of
agriculture shows the production of cot
ton of the world exceeded the consump
tion more than 1,500.000 bales in 1800,
and the increase of visible stock in 1801
was 1,100,000 bales. The price of mid
dling uplands in Liverpool fell from 6g
pence January, 1800 to 4,t8' pence Janu
ary, 1802. This country produced an
excess above the normal requirements in
two years of more than 2,000,000 bales.

Washington, 21. The river and har
bor bill is now completed and is ordered
reported to the house, Representative
Hermann secures great results for Ore
gon. His slate aggregates more appro
priations than any state in the Union,
with the exception of New York. The
great canal and locks at the Cascades of
the Columbia receives nearly $50,000
and is placed under the contract system
for completion, the secretary of war be
ing authorized to contract for the whole
work, for which $1,130,000 is estimated
exclusive of the sum now allowed 'n the
present bill, which becomes iiumedi He
iy available. The same language is
used as applies to the works at Galves
ton, Baltimore and Philadelphia harbors
and the great Sault Kle Marie canal on
the lakes. Under the contract system it
is expected that ships can pass through
the Cascade canal and locks af the Col
umbia within two years. Mr. Hermann
made a gallant and very persistent as
well a discreet struggle lor the con
cession to his state. He firmly insisted
that if like privileges were bestowed on
other great works of the nation, it must
now be nnderstood that the Cascada
locks should be counted in.
This policy will hereafter take the
Cascades canal out of the river and har
bor bill, and Mr. Hermann thinks in the
next congress the permanent works at
the daller and Celilo rapids can be un
dertaken and also placed nnder con
tract, unless the senate should come to
the rescue now when the present river
and harbor bill reaches that body. No
separa'e bill can. possibly pass the house,
in view of the immense sum which is
now given Oregon in the general bill.
Tbe items as now secured in the bill for
Oregon are as follows :
Columbia river at the Cascades $435,000
Mouth of the Columbia... 300.000
Coos Bay 210,100
Vaipiina Bay 75.000

The total allowance now iot Oregon is
$l,170.fX) and nearly equals that of the
"billion dollar congress." although the
aggregate of the present bill, which is
$20,224,000, islesslhan that of the last
bill as it was reported from tbe river
and harbor committee. Then it was
$20,932, 445 The sta e of Washington
receives an aggregate allowance of $84,
000, as against $19,000 of last congress,
and is distributed as follows:
Examiners are ordered for the im
provement of the Nootsack river. The
3tate of Idaho has an allowence of $20,
000 for the one project of the improve
ment of Snake river. This is removing
the obstructions near Huntington,
which will open 200 miles of navigation.
The state of California receives an ag

Turning Against Montt.
Santiago. Chilli, March 18 For the
first time since the success of the revolu
tion against Balmaceda there is open
hostility between the elements that com
bined to accomplish the revolution.
The clericals have come to the conclu
sion that President Montt means to
keep them in the background and their
potent influence will not be rewarded
by the political predominance they de
sire. The fact is said to be a large
majority of the Chilians are liberals,
and the piesident has concluded to be
with the majority, f ven if he has to face
the hostility of the clericals, whose
newspaper organs are fiercely assailing
the new cabinet.
Ingram Sentenced for Life.
Albany, Or., March 18 In the In
gram murder case, in which Frank
Ingram was charged with murdeiing his
brother, Henry Ingram, near this city
last October, the jury returned a verdict
of guilty of murder in the second degree.
The prisoner will be sentenced to the
penitentiary for life Monday at 1 o'clock.
The Ingram brothers had been in dis
pute over he will of their deceased
father, audit was over this that tho crime
