DISTURBANCES SPREADING POLITICAL CONDITIONS IN RUS SIA ARE RAPIDLY NEARINQ THE CRISIS AND THE GOVERN- MENTAI POLICY HAS PROVEN A PRONOUNCED FAILURE. St. Petersburg, June 6.—Tha lowar house of parliament and the govern ment are rapidly coming to olose quarters and the conflict, which be came inevitable the moment the pop ular assemblypresentedits demands in the address to the throne, cannot be much longer delayed. Excitement In the interior is in creasing dally. A partial strike has begun at Kleff, Odessa, Moscow and other cities and peasants in sotrj# provinces are no longer restralnabM* and have commenced to seize the land of the proprietors. The leaders of the constitutional democrats in the lower house, who, for tactical reasons, first sought to post pone the conflict in order to be able to choose the time and the place for a battle realize that they must go with the tide and the government, whicJi equally sought to calmly ignore ttljfe "extra constitutional" demands of th# house and sent ministers to the house with conciliatory speeches, realises that the governmental policy has failed. Since the government declines to give satisfaction regarding the con tinued executions in the provinces or to bring to book he local officiate whose tyranny is fanning the flamda of popular indignation, the parlia ment has had no alternative except that of immediate insistence on its demand for the dismissal of the cab inet. The scene at yesterday's session when the house refused to listen to the ministers and practically drovo them from the rostrum, clearly pre sents the Issue. The emperor must dismiss the cabi net or fight. Reduce Freight Rates.
