damage to buildings and loss of life oc

Gifu, in which nearly 4,000 people were
killed outright, and the same number
seriously wounded. In those two pre
fectures 42,000 house3 are totally des
troyed. The disturbance was felt throughout
thirty-one counties. Two hundred thou
sand people were rendered homeless.
Up to Nov. 5 the earthquake still con
tinued to be felt, but the intervals be
tween them have gradually increased
and the intensity of the shocks dimin
ished. From the commencement of the
disturbance up to that date it is esti
mated that 6,000 shocks have been felt.
The town of Gifu, on the Tokaido
railway, with a population of 15,000, was
almost entirely destroyed. Thirty-five
hundred out of a total of 4,400 houses in
the town were overthrown or burned
and 747 people were killed. In the town
of Kano 600 houses were overthrown
and 100 people killed. In the town of
Oprakaki 3,500 houses were overthrown,
2,000 houses burned and 700 people
- crushed to death, and 1,800 people were
injured. In the town of Tokeghana

FONSECA STEPS OUT.
Brazil' Dictator Resigns In Favor of
Another.
New York, JTov. 24. The steamship
Horrox. Captain Henning, arrived from
, Rio do Janeiro after a. voyage of twenty
three days. Captain Henning was
shown the United Press dispatches in
reference to the revolt which is reported
to have taken place there, resulting in
the retirement of Dictator Fonseca, and
the assumption of his place by Floriano
Peixotto, vjce president of the provision
al government.- Captain Henning said
"thatwhen.be left Rio Janeiro matters
were quiet on the surface, but there was
an undercurrent of dissatisfaction with
Fonseca which indicated his early despo
sition. He was not surprised that the
dictator had been forced to retire, as the
dispatches indicated, and thought that
the opposition would have taken decisive
action sooner had it not been for reports
that Fonseca was fatally ill and likely to
die at any moment. Captain Henning
also said that he did not think the
Peixotto could long hold the place of
head of the Brazilian government. The
people do not seem to know exactly what
they do want, and it would be an utter
impossibility to accurately predict what
will take place from day to day. Were
it not for the strong public feeling
atrainst the husband of the crown
princess, he thought an effort- might be
made to restore the monarchy and place
Doin Pedro's daughter in her father's
place. Public opposition to the husband,
however, he thought, would render
futile any attempt m that direction.

WORLD'S FAIR MATTERS.
President Palmer Confident That Con
gress Will Muke the Necessary Ap
propriations Home of Columbus. ,
Wasiiinotox, Nov. 24. President Pal
mer is very frank about world's fair
matters. He is confident that congress
will make the additional appropriation
of $3,000,000 needed to make the exposi
tion a success, and in reply to adverse
criticism on Chicago for alleged failure
to keep her promise to raise the $10,000,
000 which she agreed to raise if tno ex
position were held there, Mr. , Palmer
says Chicago has done what she agreed
to do, and more. The additional $o,000,
000 is now made necessary by a subse
quent enlargement of the plan and scope
of the exposition.
"It is proposed to have an exact pro
duction of the homo of Columbus, in
cluding many of the buildings that
were in existence during tha time of his
life; also a scene depicting the landing
place of Columbus on the shores of the
western world. There is a large mass
of valuable archaeological matter per
taining to the time of Columbus still ex
isting m Spain which should be brought
to the exjiosition, and will be, if we can
obtain sufficient money to defray the ex
penses of transportation."
Mr. Palmer does not expect that Pres
ident Harrison in his message will rec
ommend the appropriation. He hopes
the president will give the reasons upon
which Chicago makes the request.
'There is no question about the build
ings for the exposition being ready in
time for the opening. They are so far
under way cs to preclude all doubt on
that point- If necessary they -could .all
be completed within six months," said
President Palmer.
"This exposition is being laid out in a
much more elaborate scale than that held
in Paris in 1889. We may not be able to
excel the French in delicate workman
ship and details, as in that respect they
have no superiors in the world. The
French exposition covered only 200 acres.
Ours includes 600 acres.and over 150 acres
of it will be under cover. Nearly every
nation in the world will be represented
at Chicago.
"Italy is almost the only country that
has as yet taken no official action in the
matter, and I presume she will come in
before the gates are closed."

DESTRUCTIVE STORM.
A lTiti of Devastation Swept Northward
From Georgia-
Nrw Yokk, Nov. 21. The storm
which has been so remarkalile in its var
ied characteristics, so disastrous in iU
effects ami fur reaching in the area of its
sweep, will bo recorded, especially in the
log books of the telegraph and telephone
companies, as at once having equaled if
not exceeded tho utter paralysis wrought
by tlie great blizzard of 1888. In truth,
this has been a storm king's carnival and,
s the sequel may prove, in many in
stances, the carnival of death.
Already from numerous points come
reports of damage, destruction and death,
and when a cessation of tho warring ele
ments permits of a restoration of telo
graphic communication with jioints at
present inaccessible by the prostration of
the wires, the extent to which the seem
ingly wild rumors will be borne out by
actual facts is wholly conjecture.
Originating near southern Georgia or
northern Florida this resistless wave of
devastation swept northward and east
erly, bearing down in its path the wires,
snapping olf like reeds trees and tele
graph (toles, toppling over chimneys,
tearing oli roofs and crushing like play
houses of cardboard apparently substan
tial buildings. Bounding over the Alio
ghenies it fell upon Baltimore, Rich
mond, Washington and Philadelphia in
turn, scattering through highway and
byway mementos of its tremendous
power.
