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. Conservative Convention. London, Nov. 24.

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." KANSAS FARM MORTGAGES.

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.
