Has Been a Conspicuous Figure in
.the Politics-, -of Brazil, .for Many
Rio de' Janeiro, Brazil, Nov. 15.
Dr. .Francisco de Paula Rodrigues Al-
ves was to'day inaugurated as presi
dent of Brazil, the Installation being
marked with the customary ceremony
ana. uie.uay Deing ootobo.p h. bbh-j
eral holiday throughout the republic.
The new president has chosen a cab
inet that enjoyp the confidence of, all
the banking and business interest and
it is generally felt that Brazil is about
td enter' uporI'a'nWe'ra of prosperity.
The ministers, notably Baron de Rio
Braneo ,the minister of foreign af
fairs, and Senator' Leopoldo Bulhoes
ttie minister of' finance, have traveled
extensively In the United States and,
Europe and are generally recognised
as liberal and progressive statesmen.
Dr. Rodrigues Alves ,the new presi
dent, for many years has been a con
spicuous figure In the politics of Bra
zil. He Is a native of the state of Sao
Paulo and. -has lately ..been governor
,of, th'at progressive and rich state.
As n financier it is said Dy nis inenas
that Dr Rodrigues Alves has no su
perior in South America. His ability
was recognised by President Poixoto,
who appointed him minister of finance
In'" his "cabinet. "President Moraes re
tained him In that- place.
Dr. Rodrigues Alves Is a lawyer and
haB occupied a leading place at the
bar. He was the candidate of the 're
publican party and his election is con
sidered a great triumph because of
the high standing and prominence of
his defeated opponent, Dr. Ubaldino
do Amaral. 4
Visits Lord Lonsdale.
London, Nov. 15. Emperor Wil
liam has concluded his visit to the
king at Sandringham and next week
will bo tbe guest of Lord Lonsdale
at Lowthe'r castle, near Penrith.
The Earl of Lonsdale enjoys particu
lar favor with the emperor, in fact
ho is the only British nobleman whom
the emperor honors with a visit, and
it is needless to say that no expense
has been spared In providing the Im
perial guest. On the occasion of the
emperor's four days' visit to Lowther
castle in 1895, it is known that Lord
Lbnsdalo expended close upon a mil
lion dollars arid there is reason to bo
liovo that an oven larger sum will be
Bpent on the present occasion.
Rrnaapls Ttplolum. Nov. 15. An at-
tnmnt oe made in assassinate the
king today, after the religious serv
ices held for the late queen, ueopoia
had Just emerged from the cathedral
fired a. revolver. The
king sprang back, unhurt and kept
cool. Before a second snot coum oe
fired the man was seized, disarmed
and arrested. A big crowd was in the
cathedral at the" time, but the feellns
against the king on account oi ma
treatment of the late queen, was
tiininiv shown hv the utter indiffer
ence with which the people viewed
the attempt to kill him. Instead of
excitement, there was but murmuring
nni tho romnrk. "It. would have serv
ed him right if he had been hit," was
Some contention is made that the

Nothing official has been given out,.
To Avenge the Queen.
Investigation later shows that the
cartridge was no; n blank. The bul.
let crashed through the carriage win
dow, narrowly missing Count Doltre
mont, grand marshal of the palace.
The police used no tender .devices in
getting the assassin away. He wan
dragged through the crowd to prison,
where le gave the name of Oenore,
He is an Italian and" apparently is in
sane, and says King Leopold is a ty
rant and that he wanted to avenge
the Indifferences and insults to the
"Take That, You Reprobate."
When he fired the shot, he exclaim
ed, "take that, you reprohate."
When questioned, ho said that he
Bhot at the king because too many
people about hlra were covered with
gold, and that he had been without
food or work for several days. His
half-starved appearance bears out
The police are undecided as to
whether or not he is an anarchist.
News of the attempted assassina
tion was received at Cafe Schesson
with cheers, which were quickly sup
pressed. The king retired to tne pal
ace and refused to discuss tho mat
ter. Wants to Kill Emmanuel.
Photographs of King Leopold and
Prince Albert were found concealed
In the clothing of Gonoro Rublno Dl
nibini. He finally talked freely, giv
ing his full name, and says he Is 43
years old and arrived November 1st
from London. He appealed to the
Italian ambassador for a return tick
et to Italy, which was refused. He
rambles somewhat and said his mas
ters were Czolgolz, Luchinl and
and other assassins, who, he declar
ed, were heroes. He begged to bo al
lowed to go free, saying that he was
compelled by oath to return to Italy
aud kill King Emmanuel. King
Leopold is not perturbed as he took
an automobile ride this afternoon.
WRIGHT WANTS CHINESE
LABORERS IN PHILIPPINES.
Says Would Like to See Door Thrown
Open to Skilled Labor.
San Francisco, Nov. 15. Vice-Gov-ernor
Luke E. Wright, of the Philip
pines, speaking of finnncia laffairs in
v,o. tointirlR- until In an interview that
the money market is continually flue-'
"A bill to afford the necessary re
lief was presented to congress, but
not passed," he said,. "I think that
but for the benefit of commerce the
matter should again be taken up at
the next session of congress. It has
been suggested that a Filipino dollar
of silver should be introduced in Mie
"This dollar should be worth actu
ally 50 cents of our gold money. I
think such a coin would remedy the
present financial situation. Such a
monetary system would be similar to
the one now In use in Japan.
"it has heen suecested that a lim
ited number of Chinese say 100.000,
should be allowed to land in tne i-mi-Ijipines."
"Do you think their presence would
relieve the present labor shortage?"
"I would not like to see the doors
thrown open to the Chinese," ho re
plied. "Skilled labor yes, if limited,
would certainly prove beneficial. Some
of the Chlneso arc very clever and
thej- would be able to teach tho Fili
pinos many of tho Industries."
Governor Wright, accompanied by
his wife, expects to leave for the East

UNANIMOUSLY ADVOCATE THE
RESTORATION OF THE CANTEEN
American Officers in the Philippines Say the Army Canteen
Protects Against Intemperance and Debauchery
Washington .Nov. 15. The reports
of Philippine staff officers made pub
lic today unanimously advocate the
restoration of the canteen system.
General Sanger, Inspector-general, has
made a special study of the effects of
the present system, and sums up by
saying that the life of the soldiers in
the Philippines Is without attraction
and as a result thoy consort more or
less with the natives and soon adopt
their hablte without, benefit to either.
The post exchange, with a canteen,
furnishes a place of amusement and
exercises a wholesome influence. Sta
tistics show that In 180 companies,
ninety per cent of the men used stimu
lants at tho time of enlistment, and
deduces that the sale of beer would
not Initiate tho habit of intemper
ance and the post exchanges cannot
be maintained without IL
The men drink the vile native con
coction of vino and 25 per cent of
the men going insane are addicted to
lta use. The beer sold .at dives near
the encampment Is very Impure.
He concludes by saying that the can
teen protects against Intemperance

Indians at the World's Fair.
It is understood that there will be
a fine exhibit of Indians at tho SL
Louis World's Fair of 1904. For this
purpose congress has made an appro
priation of $40,000, which may or may
not be adequate to the object In view.

sible, however, to make tho Indian
