Peasants Were Deluded.
PARIS, Aug. 16. The semi-official
announcement, made after yesterday's
cabinet meeting, that the royalists
are directing the agitation against the.
closign of religious schools n Brittany
has evoked considerable comment.
Catholic leaders and the Catholic
press deny that the movement is anta
"republican. Count Albert de "XonT
who, "srith Abbey Gayraud, is the
guiding spirit of the resistance in
Finisterre, declares that the move
ment is entirely spontaneous on the
part of the people themselves, and
that not an act nor a shout has oc
curred in Britanny to justify the al
legation that a royalist conspiracy
exists. Count Albert de Mun says the
"Marseillaise" has been sung every
where and that it is evident the gov
ernment is embarrassed by the sit
uation and has invented the royalist
scare in order to create a diversion.
Francois Ccppee in an interview ex
pressed a similar opinion in more vi
olent and picturesque language. The
Patrie says it is rumored that the gov
ernment intended to arrest the royal
ist senator from Finisterre. M. de
Chamaillard. Ministerialist organs
assert that the government possesses

In official circles the control of
Porto Cabello by the revolutionists
is considered a signal victory for that
party, as it is a place of considerable
strategic importance. It is a town of
about 10,000 people, situated on a spa
cious, deep and safe harbor by means
of which, if necessary, troops and
supplies may be landed or dispatched
to other places in the country. Porto
Cabello is but a short sail from La
guira. which is not far from the Ven
ezuelan capital. A crisis in affairs at
Porto Cabello, where the insurgents
have been gathering strength, has ex
isted for some time and today's news
from Commander Nickels confirms the
prediction that a battle would soon
be fought there.
Topeka is looking after the inter
ests of Americans in that section of
the country and Commander Nickels
was given full authority to land a
force if necessary and also to prevent
bombardment without due notices.
This action was authorized at the sug
gestion of Minister Bowen and closely
followed a notice from the Germans
that they intended taking similar
steps for the protection of German
interests. Commander Nickels' dis

that has reached Washington that the

practically at the head of the revolu
tion against Castro took this town
some time ago and left one of his
lieutenants in charge. According to
information now in possession of the
officials here Castro is being hemmed
in from three sides at Caracas. Gen
eral Matos advanced from Bolivar to
the northwest to a place called Ori
tuco. about sixty miles south of Car
acas. Ten days ago Castro was re
ported as having left the capital with
a force to meet the revolutionary gen
eral, but subsequently he changed his
mind and returned. More recent ad
vices indicated that a battle was im
minent on the plains immediately
south of Caracas.
Early this week the revolutionists
took Barcelona, to the eastward of
Caracas, and now, according to this
last dispatch from Commander Nick
els, they have obtained control of
Porto Cabello to the westward.
ARRANGE GRAIN REDUCTION.
Meeting of Northwestern and Trans
continental Lines Held.
ST. PAUL. Aug. 15. The meeting
of the northwestern and transconti
nental lines at the Great Northern
building to discuss the proposed re
duction in grain rates today resulted
in a partial agreement, which may be
fully concluded within a few days.
Within a week it is expected the
lines interested will announce the ex
act reductions. Seme of the reduc
tions in rates will amount to 1 and
2 cents per 100 pounds. It would
make the througn rate to Chicago 19
cents instead of 21 cents.
It ' a simple calculation that by
a reduction of half a cent a bushel on
a crop of 150,000,000 bushels of wheat
in the three states a total of $750,000
would be saved, while the total on all
grains is expected to be 11.250,000.

NEW YORK. Aug; 15. Membere of

third dividend of 5 per cent on the
face of the $200,000,000 for which,
they were liable. The syndicate was
not asked to advance more t-h 12
per cent of this, so its profits to date
are $30,000,000 on the actual outlay
of $25,000,000. or a return of 125 per
cent. less a comparatively small sum
in loss of interest.

CINCINNATI SAILS FROM PORTO
CABELLO UNDER ORDERS.
Sets Sail Imme
diately After Receiving Orders
Minister Power Says thct Revolu
tionists Committed Depredation.
WASHINGTON; Aug. 14. Over
night the Navy department received
word that Cincinnati had sailed yester
day from Porto Cabello for Barcelona,
under the instructions cabled yester
day to Commander McLean, directing
either Cincinnati or Topeka to proceed
immediately to that point.
Commsnder McLean, whals the se -
nior officer present, evidently decided
to go himself and leave Topeka to pro
tect American interests at Porto Ca
bello. It is probable that Cincinnati
already has arrived at Barcelona, but
that fact may not be known officially
here for several days, as Minister
Bowen cabled the State department
from Caracas today that the cable
from Caracas to Barcelona again had
been cut by the revolutionists.
On Monday he reported that this
cable had been cut, but presumably it
had been repaired in the interim and
his last dispatch indicates that the
connection again has been lost.
Neither the State nor the Navy de
partment have received confirmation
of the press dispatches from the port
of Spain, which were conveyed there
from Barcelona, by boat, of the extent
of the fighting at Barcelona and oi

and Dutch consulates had been pil
