Rom of Disapproval for Kin; and
Ministry Greet Royal Rescript
Prorouin; National
Assembly.
BUda Pest, Hungary, Oct. 10. Par
liament was prorogued today by royal
rescript until December, 1805. Acting
Premier Baron Fejervary and his col
leagues did not attend the brief sitting
of parliament. The Baron merely sent
the president of the lower house the
rescript signed by the king-emperot
Francis Joseph, proroguing parliament
;and explaining that the step was nec
essitated by the fact that no sucres
has been attained in forming a new
cabinet on a basis which would secure
parliament against disorder.
Shouts of "scoundrels" und similar
epithets mingled with queries ol
"Where's the constitution?" greeted
the reading of the rescript, but there
were no cabinet ministers present t(
take note of the Insults hurled at
them.
Count Julius Andrassy rose and de
nounced the ministers who contrary to
precedent failed to appear before par
liament. "The government," he said, "has
thereby shown contempt of the house
and 'has abandoned .all pretense oi
conforming with the laws."
The proteat which was presented In
behalf of the '.'coalitionists declared
that the contVnued prorogations of par
liament are unconstitutional because
they rendar it impossible to impeach
the Fejervary cabinet, while the coali
tion, being the parliamentary majority,
should long ago have been entrusted
with the direction of the government,
anfl that the existence of the Fejer
vary cabinet was nothing but absolut
ism. The resolution further declared
that the king emperor opposed the will
of the nation- and that the cabinet cri
áis had now become a constitutions'
crisis. . - ' ' '
Count Stephen Tls;ia... .former pre
mier, followed with a brief speech ex
plaining that he refused to contimu
the debate, which he considered Inad
missible after parliament had been
prorogued. Then with his colleague?
the count left the hall.
A socialist deputy proposed that the
royal rescript be disregarded and the
debate eoroilnued, but this was ignored
and Count Andrassy" resolution was
adopted with radical unanimity and
the houf adjourned.
There were quite large crowds out
ride the parliament building, but the)
were kept at a distance by a cordon
of police, and there was almost en
tire atsence of the expected eexclte
tnent in the streets.
In the house of magnates a motion
proposed by liaron Ponay, vigorously
protesting against the prorogations of
parliament, was rejected after a con
siderable debate, but the resolution of
Baron Boothay, expressing regret that
the king-emperor had again decided to
prorogue the diet and hoping for a so
lution of the present difficulties was
unanimously adopted.
