FIRM REPLY TO CZAR. PA RI.IAMEXTS DEM IXDS. A ThntA Regarding Amnesty— The Agrarian Plank. <*. Petersburg. May 14.— After struggling the whole day until late this evening over a draft of the reply to the speech from the throne, the members of the commission of the lower house postponed the final work of phrasing- the docu ment until 11 o'clock to-morrow morning:. The prospects are that accord on several points will not be reached before the opening of the house at 2 o'clock, and that the reply will be thrown Into the full house for final discussion. The struggle has centred mainly on the agrarian plank. The peasant members found that the recommendations of the Constitutional Dem ocratic convention, though calling for a large measure of forced expropriation, were not sweeping enough. The debate on the address will be protracted, probably occupying two days. Besides the points of general amnesty and abolishment of the death penalty laid down in the instructions of the lower house, the document adroitly intro duces the subjects of abolishment of the Council ©f the Empire and ministerial responsibility. Taking as its text Emperor Nicholas's pledge lit his speech from the throne to maintain inviolate the Institutions which he has granted, the ad dress wtpresaea the hope that this signifies that the country is on the road to a strictly constitu tlsnsi system. This being; true, the parliament wishes to call attention to the fact that the Council of the Empire Is a wall of separation be tween ths Emperor and the people. Then, advo cating- a responsible ministry, selected from the dominant party ln parliament, the address ■points out as a great advantage of that system the cassation of attacks on the monarch. , I******** the respectful tone of the address there rave In ths paragraph regarding amnesty these ■Bjsjtfioant words: "There are some demands trhlch cannot be. refused, and this is one." The workmen are remembered by a reference •fe the address to the need of Improving condl 'tJons of laibor. In regard to the Poles and other joattonalltlea. the address, though avoiding: the word "autonomy" and insisting on the main tenance of the bonds of the empire in full strength, speaks for the right of each nationality to Its own language, customs and local govern gnont. , It Is reported that the Cabinet has practically •decided upon an amnesty measure which, though Calling far short of the demand of the lower 'house, conforms to the Idea of the Council of the .Empire of granting pardon to all political of fenders except such as have been convicted of •eTrarian murders or attempts to murder. Count Witte, the former Premier, again took m. prominent part to-day ln the conferences of members of the Council of the Empire, success fully insisting that the adoption of a reply to the speech from the throne should l>e postponed until a regular roeetlnc: of the council, at which representatives of the press should be present, ln order that the country might be Informed of the axTum«nts advanced on either side. Never theless the projected reply to the speech from the throne, which probably will be adopted, al ready has been drafted, and has been seen by The. Associated Press. Though delicately ex pressed, the reply virtually contains a demand for the amnesty of political prisoners who are not guilty of murder or robbery. In other re spects the reply seems to be especially designed to disarm the suspicion that it is to be the part of the upper chamber to block legislation pro posed by the lower house. After expressing, the. decpept loyalty to the Emperor, the reply of the Council of the Empire contains these three prin cipal points: First— An unequivocal Indorsement of a liberal MsjtaM. Second— Declaration of tbe Intention to work In harmony with the lower house for large re forms. Third— Amnesty, the sucgeotion being so worded as not to wound the sensibility of the Emperor, calling attention to the fact that all remarkable occasions In Russian history have been marked by an act of gTace and urging tbe strong claim to clemency of those who. Striving for liberty, transgressed lawful limits without being guilty of crime. DOESNT BELIEVE GAPON BEAD. Football Tactics Necessary to Get Gorky from Boisterous Brooklyn Crush.

Admiral Kuzmich Killed — Riots in Capital and Provinces. St. Petersburg. Mar 14.— Vice-Admiral Kuz mich, commander of the port, was assassinated here to-day by one of the workmen whose May Day demonstration he had attempted to stpp. The admiral was killed at the new admiralty works, where most ef the two thousand men em ployed reported for duty at 5 o'clock this morn ing. They wanted to march out at once and celebrate the Russian May Day, but finally agreed to work till 2 o'clock In the afternoon. The admiral, however, made a speech to the men, saying that he could not agree to stopping work at 2 o'clock. About 0:30 a. m.. according- to an officer who was at the gate of the works, the admiral was emerging from a small shop when a workman, who had been concealed around the corner of the building, leaped on him from behind, and drove a long dagger into his back. The admiral was Instantly killed. The assassin fled into a large forge, where he was lost among the men employed. The works were promptly surrounded by troops and police, but the search for the mur derer was unavailing, his comrades professing Ignorance of his Identity. The police say that the assassination of the admiral had been carefully planned. The dag ger had been concealed in a round stick, like a sword cane. Among the workmen are many former sailors and revolutionists. Kuzmlch had a bad reputation among the workmen, being regarded as despotic. Admiral Kusmtch served in the Russo-Turk ish war, and In 1902 was second flag officer of the Port Arthur fleet. He returned to St. Peters burg in 1903 and was appointed commander of the port. He wss a reactionist. There was n flght to-day In a suburb between a number of Conservative workmen and a band of Radicals, who tried to prevent them from working. Revolvers and knives were drawn and several persons were injured. A crowd of several hundred workmen gath ered in th© Nevsky Prospect and tried to or ganize a demonstration, but after being repeat edly dispersed by the police and charged once by dragoons they gave up the attempt. No one was injured. Telegrams received from many towns in the provinces say that, the workmen to-day mostly ceased work, but that there were few distur bances. Serious rioting, however, occurred at Vologda. Peasants stoned workmen, who forced shops and factories to close, and shots were fired. An excited crowd rushed to the Town Hall, which was set on fire. M. Loginskl, the Governor, arriving at th» prene, was wounded, together with many other persons. A strike has broken out at the Zeniea coal and iron works at Sarayevo. Strikers to-day attacked the gendarmes with stones and re volvers and the gendarmes returned the . fire, killing three and wounding five strikers. Troops have been sent to quell the disturbance. As a precaution against disorders on May Day. Governor General Doubassoff divided Mos cow into districts and stationed in each dis trict detachments of infantry, cavalry and machine guns, in addition to patrols of troops and police armed with rifles. The workmen of the capital made an imposing showing in their May Day celebration. Prac tically every factory, mill and shop in the city was Idle, over 200,000 men joining the demon stration. Reports from the Interior showed that work generally was suspended in the pro vincial cities of RuE&ia proper. The chief of police posted notices that no demonstrations would be permitted, large reserves of police armed with rifles were massed in the Industrial Quarters and detachments of infantry and cav alry, though they were kept out of sight, were posted at strategic points. BRITISH HOME DEFEXCE. Main Reliance on Navy— A New Mobilization Scheme. London, May 14— Th* Earl of Wemyss and March. Conservative, in the House of Lords to day called attention to the question of home de fenc«. He asserted that the. country was prac tically without an army, and that there were not sixty up-to-date, guns In the country. The question, he said, would be solved if the govern ment had the courage to adopt the system of compulsory service at home and voluntary ser vice abroad. The Earl of Portsmouth, Parliamentary Secre tary for th« War Office, replying, said the gov ernment had a mohilization scheme under which it was hopsd it could mobilize Its forces for de fence as quickly as could any Continental power. Further schemes had been prepared for the de fence of British ports, whi^h the speaker be lieyed would he placed in a position to resist any sudden attack, in these schemes the Admiralty the Earl of Portsmouth said, fully concurred. He reaffirmed the principle that the country muat look to the navy and not to the army for its defence agalnn invasion. GERMANY AND HUNGARY. Magyar Officials Deprecate Comment Un friendly to Kaiser.

May 14.— Ths Anglo-Turkish iifflruity has been settled to the satisfaction of SMst Britain, the Turkish government having yi*MM all points unconditionally. The Foreign Secretary. Sir Edward Grey, an nounced In the House of Commons to-day that a satisfactory note had been received from the Turkish government, acceding to the British de mands that a Joint commission be appointed to delimit the Sinai Peninsula frontier. The Foreign Secretary, sketching the course of the Turkish recession, said that the Turkish government first Informed the British Ambas sador, Sir Nicholas R. O'Conor. that Tabah aad all other places In Its neighborhood recently oc cupied had been evacuated. Since then a note had been received saying that the Turkish gov ernment agreed to a Joint commission which would be appointed to make a topographical survey and map. with the view of fixing the boundary so as to maintain the former lines. The boundary would run from Rafakh In a southeasterly direction to a point not less than three miles from Akabah. The Secretary added that the British govern ment had accepted the reply, which gave every reason to hope that a satisfactory settlement of the details would be reached. Alexandria. May 14— The British garrison of Alexandria, consisting of infantry and artillery, with bands playing and colors flying, marched through the main streets of the town this morn ing and paraded on the big square. The object of this military demonstration was to reassure and impress the natives, who had been some what disturbed by the recent Pan-Islamic cam paign launched by the supporters of the Turkisn action on the Sinai Peninsula. London, May 15.— The correspondent at Con stantinople of "The Daily Telegraph." In a dis patch dated May 14, relative to the settlement of the Tabah controversy between Great Britain and Turkey, says the susceptibilities of the Sul tan have been spared by Great Britain by the acceptance of the proposition that the Sinai frontier be determined by a Turko-Egyptlan commission. The Sultan, as the correspondent says, thus still preserves the fiction of sover eignty over Egypt. "The London Tribunes" and "the Standard's" dispatches from Constan tinople confirm "The Daily Telegraph's" state ment regarding the constitution of the commis sion. TO LIMIT BRITISH VOTES.

Th« eleventh anniversary" of the founding of the Federation of Churches and Oil**— Organisations in New York City was celebrated last night at the Pouch Gallery. No. Mi Clin ton avenue. Brooklyn. Borough President Bird S. Coler of Brooklyn presided. Letters of res gret were read from Anson P. Atterbury. avast dent of the federation: Jacob A. Rita, Harvey E. risk, treasurer of the association; General Frederick Dent Grant and J. Bayard Backus. Contributions were received from General Grant and Mr. nils. The New York University vocal quartet furnished the music. The meeting- was opened with prayer by Bishop ward G. An drews. In his opening address Mr. Celer told of the benefits derived from a unity In churches. Hs said that If the whole city were as densely popu lated as is the East Bide she Borough of Brook lyn would contain 21.801.904 persons, or the sa tire population of twelve states. Continuing, as said that the work of the federation In the crowded settlements on the East Bide was for good and deserved much credit. One of the chief remedies to relieve these crowded districts, Mr. Coler said, was the Improved transportation facilities. The Rev. Dr. George U. Wenners theme was that "federation is better than Isolation.'* Ha told of many experiences on the East Side. Con tinuing, he said that he believed In denomina tion, "as each Church stands for something that has a right to be expressed." but "federation has in the past pointed out to us opportunities and has supplied us with the information that has led to Important practical results." One of the principal difficulties experienced by church work ers in this city, he said, was due to the migra tory character of the population. With the churches working In unison. Dr. Wenner said, it was a great deal easier to cope with this condition. The Rev. Dr. Walter Laidlaw sketched the formation of the federation and told of some of the work done since its organisation. He said a committee representing all the denominations would meet In a few days to formulate a plan of co-operative house to house visitation. It had been recently decided, he said, to divide Brook lyn into nine sub-federation areas, and to adopt immediately as widely as possible a co-operative parish system. He said that he hoped by the end of this year the whole Borough of Brooklyn would have been effectively organised. Among the other speakers were Charles A. Schleren and the Rev. Dr. A. W. Bryt. Bt. Clalr McKelway. The committee In eharg* of the meeting last night Included John M. Bulwinkl*. Howard Clarke. Edwin P. Pamham. George H. Johnson. Robert Van Iderstine. Horatio D. Ladd.
