He Thinks, However, That the Brasilian People Were Heady for Republicanism, hut the lander* Have a Difficult Task before Them—Ile WHI Issue No Manifesto to the People. New York, Feb. 28.- The Brazilian consul general, Dr. Mend ones, has received a copy of an interview lietween Dr Morel, editor of Iji >btoion of Buenos Ayre*, ami Dom Pedro, late emperor of Brazil. Dr Morel remarked lo the ex-emperor that the Bio de Im Plata would deplore hi* abdication, liccauMe he was the Iwlance of power iii that jsirt at the continent. Dom Pedro replied that this ne**I not be an, because the fact that Ii)#-ayuva was minister of foreign affairs, was it***lf a guarantee of international |ieaee. He *}Mike highly of Bocayuva and further remarked that the provisional government had too much to do at home, in consol idnting the repul die to occupy theniselvee with affairs abroad. “They have committed an act of injustice again*) me,” the ex-emjteror added, ♦‘but it is done ami remains,” He agt cd with Dr Morel that the Republican* ha*! a very difficult task IWore them, and said: “They have lieen obliged to send some military men from Rio to the northern provinces to organize their admi nisi ration. There were no civilians to entrust ugh this ta*k.” Dr. Morel asked “Then how will they lie aide bi consolidate tile llepublii an system. ” KRA7.II ISNS ARK PATRIOTS. “B** aiis» til*- Brazilians are iiatriots,” rn- SJHinded Dom Pedro; “and I ls*lieve they will exert tliciuM'lv**s f*ir tile good of the country I shall serve them in Europe a* bing as I live in Itanishmeiit the same a* if I occupied the throne. This has always I teen my way of thinking, and this is my irrevocable resolve.** Dr, Morel expressed his sense of Dom Pedro’s *• lf -abnegation ami a*ke*l. “But if the ivople. tii**I of trials and strife, should become react i*mary, ami sfMmtaueously call iii#hi you to lie their ruler, w<ml*i your majesty returnT To this I torn Pedro replied: “I do not know I can assure v*hi that I am now a* a1 ways ready to subject myself to the will of the Brazilian people. At the same time I will not lie the *>ue to pnicure, directly or indirectly, intestine divisions and strife.” Dr. Morel—Then you do not think there is cause for abdication! Dom Pedro There is no reason why I boul*!. The facts are consummated, ami the facts have force for the |iresent. Dr. Morel- It is said that you will issue a manifesto and it is anxiously l*M>ked for. Dom I'i-.ire—I shall not *lo un; at least riot for the present. I am a man of actions, not of wi mis. Dr. Morel—Does your majesty lielieve that Brazil will maintain the union under the new order of tilingsf Dom I’Mro—I do. Uh* nation, the fatherland, is alrnve all. Dr. Morel—I look upon the Brazilian people a> prepared for the republic. 18 an Pedro—I believe the same. Dr. Morel Does your majesty think there will lie a reaction in favor of a restoration? I Nim Pedro This lielongs to the future, nlmut w hich I know a# much as you. Thi* ended the interview, so far as political matters were concerned.

A drain was inserteiI and pus is flowing freely. The sue-eess of the operation ha* revived the hopra of tile family that the patient may recover. Mr. Lincoln requests public expression of his own ami Mrs. Lincoln's appreciation of the many cablegrams of syinjiat hy caused by the erroneous rumor of the death of their son, which have l#s»n received. Minister Lincoln states that the physicians attending his son say that the patient has surprised them and all others a1*nit him by not only surviving Wednewiiay night, but by lieiug sufficiently strong in the morning to permit the oj ie ration of tapping, which relieved the heart aud lungs from effusion.

Ottawa, Ont, Feb. 518.—In th# house of commons yesterday Mr. Taylor’s contract labor bill, which is an exact counterpart of the American law on this subject, came up for a second reading. It came out that Mr. Taylor had taken upon himself the authority to issue a proclamation last summer warning American fishing parties which crossed into Canada along the bt lawrence river that they would lie liable to heavy penalt ie* under the fishery ach Kir John Mai'donald admitted that Mr Taylor made out a strung case The Ameri-can government to all appearances had acted unneighborly, thus causing indignation along the bonier. He imagined, however, that the legislation wa* aimed at European immigra tion rather than intended for Canada. The position of the countries was different. While wa wanted more immigrants the Atn4»rtcan* were seeking to protect their domestic labor He proposed an adjourn merit of the deltate. Kir Richard Cartwright scored Mr. Taylor for issuing a warning to American fishermen aial others. The Dominion had a minister of marine, hut he never realised before that it owned an admiral. Hon. Mr. I^aurier thought the bill was un-ne*-es*ary. The American legislation was not conceived in any spirit of hostility to Canada, ami remonstrances would probably produce a lienefleial effect. Mr. Lister, coming from West Lamhton, a btirder county, agreed that this course was the safest. If representations failed then he would favor a retaliatory measure. Sir John Thompson admitted that consid erabic harshness had attended the enforcement of the American act, but could not support any proposal for a policy of reprisal. It wa* all very well to figure that Canada should tie exempted. This could not be done unless an exception were made likewise in favor of every British subject. An exemption in the cam of Canada meant that this tx>untry should prove the weak point in the American wall. If this were done thousands of foreigners would flock here to gain en-tranee to tile United States. He regretted that Canadian currency on deposit in American lianks was taxed as personal property. This could notlw remedied as it was author ixed by statute. Iii regard to the labor question he saw no hofies of any change in the existing legislation. The subjert wa* brought liefore the attention of the American government two month* ago when t wo mem hen of the Dominion government visited Washington While not existing any change they urged the secretary of the treasury to see that the ism tract labor law was not enforced with any undue severity. The American cabinet minister in reply said that it was far from the American government’s intention to annoy Canada. The law existed and it wa* within the sphere 'if the humbled American to see that it wa* •nfoired. Investigation would show that the American oAUer* along the boarder hail jier-formed their duty under compulsion from private individuals. Canada did not p<i*se»t# a surplus j*-pulation and it would be unwise to enact similar legislation. TH KY TELL NO TALKS. MUMM’S THE WORD.” Fatal Collision. Elgin, 111., Feb. 28.—A Milwaukee ami Bt.
