From October 3 to November 3
UNITED STATES AND LATIN AMERICA
Brazilian Revolution Successful.—The revolutionary movement which began on October 3 in various provinces of Brazil came to a successful issue after about three weeks’ warfare. On the night of October 23-24 the greater part of the federal troops and naval forces at Rio Janeiro went over to the revolutionists, brought about the overthrow of President Washington Luiz, and set up a temporary government headed by a junta of army and naval officers. On October 24 Getulio Vargas, Governor of Rio Grande do Sul and head of the revolutionary party, was named provisional president and took over the government upon his arrival at the capital a few days later.
