"It is fortunate that the constmc ^on of many large buildings was only in comtemplatlon. Their erection can now be pursued without the assurance of substantial construction. Indeed, :'. the experience will result in making San Francisco the safest city in the country in which to reside, absolutely proof against quakes and fires.

PRICE FIVE CENTS. si FEELING OF MISTRUST IS AGAIN RAMPANT Obnoxious Fundamental Law Revived Acta as Red Flag Before Angry Members. Amoclated. Preaa Sabfe ta The gTtialaar Timra. St. Petersburg, May 8.—The danger of an early conflict between the gov ernment and parliament been greatly increased by what has hap pened within the last twenty-four hours. The good impression produced by the official intimation ot the new premier that the emperor and govern ment were sincerely desirous of work ing in harmony with parliament, which was accepted in gooa faith by leaders of the consti\ .tional democrats en abling them counsel moderation, has been largely dissipated and in its place the olu feeling of mistrust has been revived. The liberals are utterly dumbfound ed in view of semi-official assurances on the subject by the unexpected pro mulg uii last night of the obnox ious fundamental law in a slightly modified form. At one stroke it put an eud to the chain which the new cabinet tried to foster, namely,, that the do-.vuiali of the Witte cabinet was due tu the imperial disapproval of the original draft of law. An article in the law not mentioned in last night's dispatches exempting crown lands from taxation, and. ex propriation and another reserving the power of amnesty for political prison ers to the emperor, run counter to the already expressed will of the majority and are bound to produce a clash. The only cemmendable new feature of the fundamental law is the provision to the effect that imperial orders must be countersigned by the president of the council of ministers and the mem ber of the cabinet whose department is effected. But .so long as the cabinet is not responsible to parliament it 1b easy for the emperor to dismiss an un willing minister and replace him by one who will do hia bidding. The indignation aroused by the em peror's attempt to build an artificial jlykt around the prerogatives of the crown has been intensified by the as tounding act of the police last night ih dispersing a meeting of some of the members of the lower house of parlia ment and of the upper house or new council of the empire^ at the hail, of the Commercial society.
