-y While here Mr. Harriman made the
following statement to a representa
tive of the Associated Press regarding
'the situation In San Francisco:
"The earthquake was, the worst
since San Farnclsco became a great
..city. This is evidenced by the de-
Vstruction of churches and other build
ings—showing undoubtedly some faul
ty construction—the older houses
erected by.the pioneers and early citi
zens having In maivy cases withstood
the shock, unharmed, as did also the
"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.
"When San Francisco Is rebuilt no
material damage by any future earth
j-'-j'k quake need be feared. Under, the new
laws all buildings will be constructed
under requirements which Will pre
vent Indiscriminate erection o£ faulty
structures and which will promote the
possible artistic or architectural effecty
by providing' that the height of the
buildings shall not exceed one and
one-half times the width of the street,
and also that avenues shall- be widen
ed, which will enable not only the
beautifying of the city, but will pre
vent the spread of fires in the future,
and make possible a clearer means
of communication or transportation,
"Following the experience of Chi
cago and Baltimore which has suffered
from great destructive fires, it is reai
sonable to expect that San Francisco
upon reconstruction, within a reason
able .time, will undoubtedly have reach-

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
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.
