HH highly satisfactory. The history of our
HHj Diet may bo summed up by saying that
HHl t from the II rat it planted itself firmly In
HHJ -. opposition to tho Government on flnan-
HHfl clal questions. After my appointment
HHl friction became Increasingly violent. Tho
HHn two great parties, the Constitutionalists
HHw uid the Progressists, presented a com-
HHM blned front In opposition to my Ministry.
HHH Despite administrative reforms effected on
HHj their demand, we failed to satisfy them.
Hj They criticised our financial measures as
fl excessive and refused to pass tho bills.
HJ "Judging by thoso conditions, serious
H collisions between tho governed and the
HHj governing wore predicted, but whon tho
war camo this friction entirely ceased,
HHJ and the House, of Representatives, which
HHJ once refused to pass a budget of $125,000,-
HHJ aa excessive and unbearable, gave a
HHJ ready and willing assent to the first war
KHJ budget of I2SS.000.000.
HHJ "At 111 13 session of tho Diet the Gov-
HHJ crnment will be compelled to present a

HHJ lions arc that It will be passed without

HJ uomenon Is attributable to tho character-

"WAR MTJST GO ON.
Everything in. Russia Depends Upon
- Outcome of Present Struggle.
ST. PETERSBURG, Nov. 27. One of the
unost commanding figures and far-seeing
tatcamcn of tho empire, whose opinion
of the highest value, but who has de
tied to permit tho uoo of his name, to-
day expressed the distinct conviction that
nothing In the nature of a radical chango
In tho existing order of things would re
sult from tho Zomstvo congress.
This statesman, It may be said, Is a firm
bellover In tho principle of autocracy as
tho beat system of government, for the
realization of the dreams of the Slav
race, and what ho believes to be tho great
destiny of tho most populous nation and
vastest empire In the world; but ho has,
himself In fact, favored a liberal policy
and Is now too practical-minded not to
appreciate the factors which threaten tho
present' regime- Still, ho does not believe
that anything llko a crisis now confronts
tho government. Tn his opinion every
thing depends on tho war.
"Tho war," the statesman said, "is a big
interrogation point for Russia. Her futuro
at home and nbroad Is Involved In tho Is
sue. Tho Internal situation is very com
plicated. Tho action of tho Zomstvo rep
resentatives Is a symptom of the dlseaso
from which Russia suffers, but these few
men havo not necessarily mado a correct
diagnosis or offered tho truo remedy.
Theirs is in no sense tho verdict of tho
people, but only tho opinion Qf n class.
"Tho real representatives of tho Rus
sian peoplo, could they nssemblo, and
could they arguo. would probably enun
ciate a program qultn as repugnant lo tho
Zemstvolst as to the- supporters of the
present program. Tho men who assembled
here last week do not propose true rep
resentative government. They woud real
ly substltuto tho rule of class autocracy
to Imperial authority.
"Tho Russian peasant, who represents
four-llfths of tho population, with his In
born sense of devotion to tho Emperor,
would doubtless prefer tho latter to tho
former. Were I a minister, and working
for the good of the country. I should pre
fer to obey tho mandates of tho Emperor
to those of a bogus Parliament, profes
sing to speak by authority of the people.
"If Zemstvo-eleotcd representatives
should sit In the council of tho empire, they
would bo equally ns spurious as repre
sentatives of tho people. Neither tho
country nor tho people are prepared for
truo representative government. Anarchy
would take tho place of government, nnd
the empire would crumplo to pieces. So
far aa tho program of the Zomstvolst.s. is
concerned, I am sure neither the Emperor
nor tho government bellove in it; but that
does not mean that liberalism Is to end.
"Tho policy represented by Von Plehvo,
In my opinion, can never return. Prince
Svlatopolk-Mlrsky Is a courageous, slnccro
man, and stands for a broad and liberal
policy, but a constitution now is out of
the question. 1 will not discuss what may
occur in tho future, but, I repeat, every
thing depends on the war. Its outcomo
will dotcrmlno whether thero will bo a
crisis, and Its character.
"Japan, T believe, would now weleomo
peace, and ho would Russia also, but I
cannot see. how it Is possible for them to
come to terms. Therefore, the war must
go on. When It ends an answer to all
these questions will come."
STORM AT MUKDEN.
Inhabitants in Pitiable Condition and
Little Interest in Skirmishes.
MUKDEN, Nov. 27. A tcrrlblo storm
was experienced hero on Saturday, and
residents expect a repetition of such
weather, coincident with typhoons off tho
coast, until March. Tho temperature now
Is below freezing. Tho inhabitants of tho
leaky huts are In a pltlablo condition.
The war has reached such a phaso that
the Interest of small skirmishes Is very
slight. Everyono has been looking for a
big battle, but though reinforcements con
tinue to arrive, and both sides continue to
Intrench, a general engagement apparent
ly le as far off as over. No ono now dis
cusses tho subject.
A number of commanders aro drilling
their men as In tlmo of peace.
More Interest Is expressed hero In tho
fato of Port Arthur and its ability lo hold
6ut against the Japanese than In what Is
happening at close quarters.
There have been the usual small skir
mishes. Vllmanstninskl's sharpshooters
took a Japanese advanced position Satur
day, driving out tho Japancso at the point
of the bayonet. Tho latter left twenty
dead, and the Russian loss was three. Tho
Japancso attacked tho Russian lines at
several places, taking advantage of a
snowstorm on ono occasion, but In all
etises wero repulsed.
Tho village of Erdago continues to bo

COL. ANTHONY'S GUN.
Famous Trial in Kansas for Carrying
of Concealed Weapons.
Ono of tho most exciting trials that
eer occurred In Leavenworth, Kan.,
was the "Quaker Gun" trial of Col
Anthony. It was highly dramatic, and
not only ended in tho acqulttn.1 of tho
old warrior, but In a triumph ovor his
enemies. In tho spring following tho
election of Dr. Necly for a third term
as Mayor of Leavenworth, Col. Anthony
was assailed on tho street by ono of his
enemies, and It was reported that sov
eral wero going armed for him. Tho
Lcavoriworth Times office was then on
Main street, and Col. Anthony mado It
a point to go up and down Delawaro
etrcot half a dozen times a day lo glvo
his enemies a chance lo open hostilities.
On these promenades tho Colonel car
ried something across his arm wrapped
In a newspaper. It had tho shapo of an
old-tlmo navy revolver.
All his enemies said It was a revolver,
nnd gavj the Colonel tho right of way.
They became tired of staying at home
and indoors at the end of a week and set
up a demand that Col. Anthony bo ar
rested on tho charge of carrying deadly
weapons. The arrest was mado and a
trial followed that was opened In the
police courtroom, but an adjournment
was taken to tho Council chamber so
that moro persons could witness tho
Lucicn Baker, late United Suites Sena
tor, was engaged by Col. Anthony's op
ponents to conduct tho prosecution and
he had the aaclstanco of both tho city
and county attorney. Col. Anthony con
ducted his own case, and opened a florco
line of cross-examination of the wit
nesses for tho prosecution, almost all his
enemies. Col. Anthony was noted
throughout his life for having a marvel
ous memory, and when ho began asking
tho prosecuting witnesses questions
touching disagreeable subjects it cre
ated a panic
The trial lasted three days and the
crowds around tho city hall grew in size
and intcrcsto deepened as it progressed.
Whon tha prosecution rested, Col. An
thony took tho witness stand In his own
bohalf, holding tho mysterious package.
In fact, ho held it on his arm all the
tlmo during tho three days he was cross
examining witnesses for tho prosecution,
all of whom gave It as their Judgment
that tho package contained a pistol and
that Col. Anthony would hurt somo ono
unless It was taken away from him.
Col. Anthony oponcd his testimony by
saying he was unarmed, but refused to
lollvwhat was in the mystorlous pack
age. The attorneys for tho prosecution
domanded of tho Judge that he order tho
packago unwrapped to disclose Its con
tents. A heated legal debato followed.
Col. Anthony argued that tho Judge had
nc power to interforo with the package,
ond Incidentally Col. Anthony Informed
tho court that If anyone touched the
packago, whether official, lawyer or wit
ness, he would do so at his peril. The
Judge ruled that the package should bo
let alone that It waa private.
After this favorable ruling, Col. An
thony throw tho package down on a ta
ble in front of him with a slam tnat
brought the entire audience to Its feot.
Eoforo tho excitement could dlo down.
Col. Anthony unwrapped tho packago
and disclosed a piece of lead pipe bent
in the shape of a revolver. Ho held this
aloft and pointing to his enemies, said:
"This Quaker gun is the deadly weapon
I havo for you braves."
A might j' shout wont up, and bforo It
died out the attorneys nnd witnesses
for tho prosocutlon slipped out of tho
room. Col. Anthony was given an In
formal roceptlon by the audlcnco. Tho
Judge Joined in the lough and did not
deem it necessary to formally stuto Col.
Anthony was acquitted. The "Quaker
Gun" was alwavs kept by Col. Anthony
and shown to his friends. KansaB City

thoy aro Just ono game shy of the cham
pionship. It all depends upon President
Bort of tho Paclllc Coast league.
Tho Angles won both games from Se
attlo today and It left the situation, with
regard to tho pennant, in this way. Los
Angeles has a protest fllcd with President
Bert of a gamo played with tho Portland
team whllo on ono of Its northern trips.
Manager Morloy said tonight: "If
President Bert throws out tho Portland
game, that Is, does not allow It to llguro
in tho percentage table, wo aro tied with
Tacoma for tho second half. If ho turns
down McCarthy's decision and gives the
gamo to the Los Angelos team, then we
win tho second half and will bo entitled
to play a post season series with Tacoma
for the 1901 pennant. If Bert decides
against us on tho protest, then wo loso
by three points." Scores, today's games:

JEFFRIES AS AN ACTOR.

success in portraying tho rolo of tho fron

he Is ono of the lato Frank Mayo's great

had an ambition to go on tho stage. In
a recent interview tho champion disclaims
that ho is a great actor, but he says: "1
try to do my best, and I believe I have a
thorough appreciation of what Davy
Ciockott should be." But, to quote his
own words: "I am no great actor; I am
not Nat Goodwin or Frank Daniels, but
I have a good show, and I think from tho
way I "have been treated so far peoplo
like tho way I handle my part. I do not
try to do any heavy acting, but try' to bo
natural and sincere.'1
Somo ono who was present said: "Why,
you play Davy Crockett better than
Frank Mayo, and I havo seen vou both
in tho play." Jeffries laughingly said:
"No, I can't stand for that; you shoot too

Tho morning newspapers contain ton or
fifteen dispatches concernlngs killings or
shootings. The reason that tho Hat Is so
small Is becauso the wires irom tho South

The custom of carrying firearms or

has becomo so common as to menace tho
safety of almost every ono who takes his

Whether Noblo was killed by accident
or Intent. It is very clear that ho was a
victim of the dangerous habit of leaving
a loaded pistol In tho house.
A fow weeks ago two llttlo children en
tored a chamber in a Harlem apartment
house, and, finding a pistol on the table,
began to play with It. A second or two
lator a shot frightened tho occupants of
the house. They looked out of the window
and saw a passerby fall dead.
This Is but ono incident in a hundred of
the snmo horrlblo kind.
Boys grow up in the belief that It In
smart and manly to carry about with
thorn a weapon which Is capablo of de
stroying the llfo of a human being.
Mon who nothing whatever of tho uso
of llrcarms. nnd aro utterly incapablo of
handling them, keop pistols under their
pillows, thinking that thereby they aro
safo from the attacks of burglars, who
aro always experts In tho business of
shooting, and ngninst whom tho most
heavily armed householder stands about
as much chance as docs a green militia
man against a Western bandit.
Thero aro statutes and ordinances
against tho carrying of firearms, but they
are so laxly enforced as to bo dead let

Any ono may purchase a rovolvor, and
no questions are asked.
When a saloon row occurs and somo
braggart pulls a gun from his pocket and
brandishes it about, ho is arrested and
fined a fow dollarrt. Ho pays tho fine and
continues to carry his weapon.
This editorial Is not written In the hope
of bringing about tho better enforcement
of tho laws against carrying pistols. It
would bo exceedingly difficult to enforce
Iho law. even wero penalties in anything
liko proportion to tho offence.
It Is written, however, to discourage
young men from keeping such engines of
destruction in their pockets, and to per
suade heads of families that even in tho
event of an attack by thieves they would
bo in far more danger with weapons In
tho house than without them.
The taking of human life for any causo
whatever is not a thing which tends to
give a man a calm conscience In later life,
Tho memory of your victim, whether ho
was accidentally shot by tho pistol you
didn't think was loaded, or killed at your

Bill of Fare Too Steep.
A tall, raw-boned Individual who didn't
need a grasshopper peeking out of a side
pocket to tell he was from Kansas, wan
dered in to a Second avenue cafe a few
days ago. After looking tho room over
carefully ho selected a seat at a tablo
near tho door. After he had arranged his
chair with much nolso and not without
attracting somo attention it dawned upon
him that the other men In tho eating
place had taken off their hats. Tho Kan
sas man removed a battle-scarred felt hat
and deposited It carefully under tho table.
A waiter brought him the regular din
ner bill of fare and waited for tho order.
The Kansas man didn't say a word.
Ho was hard at work.
Ho studied over that programmo for
nearly half an hour and then, with a sigh,
arose, put on the green helmet and started
for the door.
"What is tho matter, sir?" anxiously
queried a waiter, thinking the patron had

What Americans Eat.
It is figured out that in 1S50 a hundred
Americans ate 91 sheep. 118 hogs and 25
beeves, whereas in 1900 they consumed
but CO sheep, -13 hogs and 20 bcoves.
Cheese has declined, but If eggs and
poultry aro Included with butter and
milk as belonging to the dairy class,
tho consumption of that kind of food
Is three times what it wa3 forty years
ago. In 1S50 one hundred persons ate
120 bushels of wheat and 90 bushels of
oats. In 1S90 they ate C23 bushels of
wheat and 3SC bushels of oats, and In
190 tho breakfast food movement Was
small to what It Is today. The general
gain In vegetablo expense Is SO per cent.
Meat still leads, although It apparently
will not do so long. Americans have
grown healthier in tho half century
whloh has seen this change, probably,
however, on account of more air and ex
orcise and better cooking and sanitation.
