A distinguished Journalist has ask
ed the question : "Will Finland retain
its much loved and long menaced an
tonomy will it remain the sole home

ions of the czar, or will It be reduced
to the undistinguished level of a Rus
The struggle has Just begun. The
Finnish Lnndtdag (parliament) which
met again on February 10. has, In
deed, had a situation to face more
difficult, more fraught with danger to
the constitution and the independ
ence of the grand duchy, than it was
even In those troublesome days when
general BobrlkolT ruled the country
with his rod of Iron.
It 'was not to be expected that the
victorious Kusslan reaction would rest
satlMtled with its achiovements in
Russia proper, or that It would tol
erate the existence of a practically In
dependent dependency, more than
half Socialist, more than half hostile,
close to its own capital. For a long
time the reactionary and conseritive
press, headed by the "N'ovoe Vrem-
ya have been conducting a relentless
campaign against Finland, and In this
they have undoubtedly had support
from exalted quarters. Hut it is only
quite lately that the inner si'uatlon in
Russia has become so settled that It
has been divined opportune to adopt
a policy of action.
The first Intimation of a new
enurwe in Finland was the nomination
nf general Zcln a.i chief of staff of the
governor general. As general Zeln
served In the same capacity under
leneral ISolirlkotT. his appointment
was viewed with (treat apprehension
as heraldiiiK other and more import
ant changes in the personnel nf the
government. These misgivings have
proved to lie on'y too well founded.

The campaign against I'iiiliM, will
lie conducted along two lines of op
eration, which may he stjled re-pect-ively
the government line and the
Douma line. Along the nvst a direct
attack will he attempted. The Rus
sian government will deny the tight
of the I.andtdag to control and man
age the finances of the country. Very
recently the czar lias ru'ed that by
far the largest part of the revenue,
in particular the customs revenue, is
to bo wholly exempt from the control
of the I.auUtdng. In the question of
the 20,000.000 marks payment to
Russia, which directly caused the rul
ing of the czar, the Finnish Senate
has expressed totally different views
from those of the czar's government,
1 demanding that the Landtdag shall
lhave full control of the budget. That
I the recent fall of flc-neral Gerard w ill
I be followed by the faU of the Senate
is therefore most probable. As the
Senate is made up of the best men
from the Syecomane, the Young Fin
nish and the Agrarian parties, repre
senting the most cultured classes In
Finland, Its dismissal will constitute
a most serious blow to the Finnish
The attack along the Douma line
will be more Indirect. It will take
the shape of an Interpellation to M.
Stolypin concerning the situation in
the Grand Duchy. A vast number of
"facts" aro being collected, which
are to prove that Finland is secretly
arming on a large scale with the ob
ject of revolting against Russia at the
first favorable moment and bringing
the country back under Swedish rule.
It is not likely that anybody outside
of Russia will credit ouch absurd
nonsense and even in Russia it Is
doubtful whether any serious politic
Ian really believes in the alleged Fin
nish revolt. In important circles In
Russia there exists a strong feeling of
Indignation against Finland, and at
this opportune moment any pretext
will serve to give vent to that feeling.
The IMffnt'iif Reasons.
The reasons for this are of different
kinds. In the tlrst place resentment
Is felt that the Finnish population has
in many ways and to no small extent
morally and materially supported the
Russian revolutionaries. There is no
doubt that considerable quantities of
arms and ammunition have been
smuggled across the Finnish frontier,
and that the people, and to some ex
tent the officials, have screened and
abetted Russian revolutionaries seek
ing refuge In their country. In the
Sveaborg mutiny a certain -not large
number of Finns were involve I. An
other reason is that the personal re
union oeiween rums hiio iiissnms j ii,. it-
nave always oeen oao. i mil wus is
the fault of the Finns Is apparent to
anybody knowing the Jolly, easy go
ing Russian and the ill tempered,
querulous Finns. The Russians living

Seattle, March V. --"Come to
Alaska-Vukon-Paclfic exposition in
1H09 and bring your camera."
That is the Invitation extended bv
the management of the 109 fair to
the people of the country and espe
cially to those devotees of photo
graphic art. Again the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific
exposition Is departing
from the policies of former exposi
tion and doing something different.
The division of concession, of which
A. W. Lewis is director, will permit.
under the contract of the official pho
tosraiiher all kodaks and cameras
not over the size of 6',4xSVii Inches to
be taken on the grounds, and visitors
will he nllowed to take all of the
Pictures they desire of the buildings,
exhibit and other features. There
will be only one restriction, however,
positively no tripods will be permitted
to be used In snapping views.
At former expositions the rules re
garding cameras on the grounds have
varied. At some world's fairs a small
fee was charged for kodaks not over
4x5 Inches dn ' size. At other expos!
tions cameras not over 4x.1 Inches
were admitted free. In each case
tripods were prohibited. These In
strimienLs take un a good deal of
room, and when one is taking a pho
tograph by the help of one of them
thev often obstruct avenues and
aisles which are constantly stream
ing with people.
The exclusion or cameras over a
specified size at previous expositions
was done in order to protect the of
Tidal photographer, who had paid
lame sum for tile exclusive right to
take photographs on the grounds and
who had to have Ills concession pro
tected In order to make his expenses
and profit out of the sale of photo
graphs'. Although the management
realizes that it cannot secure as much
money for the granting of the pho
tographic concession it reasons that it
will lie fully recompensed in making
o lenient a rule by the doing away
with of the annoyance and confusion
which was caused by the exclusion of
cameras at other expositions. At for
mer world's fairs a person would
leave his or her hotel with a kodak
prescribed size, and
gates of the expo'
that they could not
hotel would be several mile
awav and there was no place on the
outside where they could check their
machine, or If there were such a
place, their camera might be too val
uable to he left in a check room
where there was danger of It being
damaged. They would have to re
turn to their hostelry to leave their
camera, provoked or mad at the ex-
ofilclals, which would cause
them to lose several hours of va.U-
ahle lime which otherwise they could
be .-pending to advantage in seeing
the sights of the exposition.
Other Instatuces leave been when a
person with a tabooed camera had
passed through the turnstiles on a
big day when the crowd was large,
evading the watchful eyes of both
guard mid gatekeeper. After getting
.-oiue distance from any of the exit
mites and attempting to take it pic
lure a guard would appear and stop
tlic photographer and Insist that he
or she leave the grounds. In every
case the guard, under orders, would
have to escort the offender to the
nearest gate, with the admonishment
not to return unless the camera was
left outside, which, of course, was
humiliating. Instances have been
kno,n when the enmera fiend caused
the guild trouble and had to be taken
lo the fair police station. Again pro
fessionals wlio "sassed" tile guard
and Insisted on proceeding with their
lecture taking had their cameras
siiui-hed by the exposition guardian
of the peace, whose act was Justifi
able under his Instructions.
