I' /$ A REVOLUTIONARY ||y^ DOCUMENT, PURELY is Opinion of Leading Xewspaper— Partial Amnesty ok May 19 PossRtle. ./ Aaaoelatod Preaa Cafcle to The Evtaiai Time*. St Petersburg, May 16.—The opinion is quite general today that parliament's adoption of the reply to the speech from the throng will make a conflict with the crown inevitable, since it con tains a number of points upon which supporters of the government say it Is impossible for the emperor to yield. The Novoe Vremya regards the reply as a purely revolutionary document, ""such as might appear as a leading article in a social democratic news paper." On the. other hand, constitu tional democratic leaders insist that it is not an ultimatum. They consider the reply to be exceedingly temperate in tone and say it required all their ability to prevent the introduction of more radical expressions. There is «very indication that the emperor and Premier Goreymkin's cabinet desire to avoid a conflict and that by cbmpro mise on the question of amnesty they will seek to gain time. It can be as serted on high authority that partial amneBty will be proclaimed May 19, the emperor's birthday. When parliament reassembled at 11 o'clock this morning, the impression prevailed that the day would witness strange scenes. Premier Goremykin and the entire cabinet were seated on ministerial benches. From the very outset today, words in favor of moderation were few and far between. Seminoff, a social revolu tionist from Saratoff, was the first speaker. Amid wlld\appiause he de clared that the reply to the speech from the throne was too weak. Par 1 lament, he said, was evidently content with less than the people. To cries of "Semlia I ivolia" (Land and Freedom) Seminoff announced that the people who had sent him to parliament did not want land without liberty. „The peasants were so -revolutionary "that ottly a sjiark wasTequlred to kin die a conflagration, and anarchy and destruction were certain if the de mands of the peasants were not satis fled immediately.

That the senators of this state are on guard to -see that no legislation is enacted which is inimical to the inter ests of the people of this state. Is proven by the fact that In the rail road fight now being Swaged a resolu tion was offered which on its face seemed harmless, but when dissected by Senator McCumber it was found would have made the harvesting of the crops of North Dakota almost an im possibility. The resolution reads as follows: That no carrier engaged In inter state commerce shall, directly or Indi rectly, by any special rate, rebate, drawback, or other device, charge, de mand, collect, or receive from any per son a greater or less compensation for interstate transportation of passengers than it charges, demands, collects, or receives from any other person for the same or equally good accommodations and a like and equally good service. And any carrier violating this provision shall be deemed guilty of unjust dis crimination and sliaU for each offense pay to the United States a penalty of not less than one hundred nor more than two thousand dollars: Provided, That nothing herein shall prevent the free carriage of destitute or Indigent persons, or the Issuance of mileage or excursion passenger tickets, or prevent such carriers from giving free or re duced transportation to ministers of religion, or to the Inmates of hospitals, eleemosynary and charitable Institu tions, or to prevent any such carrier from giving free transportation to of ficers, agents, employees, attorneys, stockholders, or directors of carrier companies, or to the families of the. same. At page 6603 of the Congressional Report Senator McCumber is.-quoted as follows: Mr. President, it has been the custom of the railways in the agricultural Northwest in the months of July and August, during harvest time, to make special rates for laborers to take them to the farmers' fields. That cus tom has been absolutely necessary for the people of the Northwest in order to get the laborers there at all. This amendment proposes to cut that off entirely, and the only way under it by which we could get the laborers would •be the old-fashioned method of travel by the tramps before they found work to do, the method that was so much in vogue between 1893 and 1896. The amendment, if it is incorporated in the bill in its present torn, will do almost untold and inestimable damage to the farmers of my section of the country and of the northwest section pf the United States generally. .• I do not know whether the nntgp system prevails in reference to the shipment of laborers to the mines in other sections of the Northwest I know it does prevail In my section of the country, and I do not think the (Cnllnei page 8.1 5 MO NEGROES FI6HT Race War in New York Be tween Negroes and Foreign ers a Bloody One.

London, May 16.—The latest issue of Reynold's newspaper says that in formation has been received from a reliable source to the effect that France is still steadily strengthening her defences along the German front ier. During the past twelve months or so many garrisons have been con siderably added to, and in some cases almost doubled, while new guns of long range and the most modern con struction have been Installed In all the principal forts. So secretly has this been carried out that the vast majority of people in Prance have no idea of it, but the villagers along the frontiers tell strange stories of strong bodies of armed men marching silently at dead of night, all bound for unknown destinations. The French war office Is well aware that in the archives of the German headquarter staff there are elaborate plans for the descent of great armies upon French soil at the moment war is declared, or even be fore, but it is by no means certain, concludes the correspondent, that they would have anything like the free and uninterrupted passage that they be lieve would be the case.

CORRESPONDENCE SENT TO CHICAGO PAPER He Brands as a Lie and Its Author and Inspirer as Malicious Liars. Associated Preaa to The Ereainc Tinea. Washington, May 16.—The calm of the senate's discussion of the railroad rate bill was disturbed today by a per sonal interruption by Senator Bailey, who rose to the question of personal privilege to make reply to the charge made in a Chicago paper yesterday by a Washington correspondent to the effect that Bailey had been responsible for the failure of an agreement be tween the president and Senator Till man. Former Senator Chandler was given as authority for the statement that Tillman had been suspicious of Bailey, who, it was also stated, was really op posed to rate legislation and was also in constant conference with Senator Aldrich with the purpose of defeating the rate bill. After this statement had been read, Mr. Bailey took the floor and said deliberately: "I have taken no part in the question of veracity between the president and Mr. Chandler and I had not even given any public expression on the question of good faith because I knew nothing about either question. I had never conferred with the presi dent directly nor with Mr. Chandler. It was therefore a matter of great surprise to when the senator called my attention to the extract which I have had read. That correspondence, it was understood, was sent by a cor respondent who is very close to the White House and is presumed to speak with some degree of authority concerning transactions there. I do not know as to the truth of that and 1 do not charge that his statement was made with authority. But I denounce the publication as an unqualified, de liberate and malicious lie. I denounce that correspondent as an unqualified, deliberate and malicious liar. 1 de nounce the man who inspired the statement as an unqualified, deliberate and malicious liar, whoever he may be and however high the office he holds." The statement was made In a de liberate monotone, but it was none the less impressive on that account. It was received with absolute silence and the silence continued for a few moments until Senator Tillman had taken the floor also the question of personal privilege because the article quoted said that he had been sus picious of Bailey. He declared there were eight falsehoods in the article and said he had always esteemed Bailey and their relations were cor dial. He then haH i-ead a letter sent him today by former Senator Chand ler. "On the whole perhaps^ I ought to consider myself fortunate, if the old imperalist days had been fully revived at the White House. One whom I considered the best of friends. Senator Lodge, upon demand, would have cut off my head and taken It to President Roosevelt on a charger and I should have spoken no more. Now, at least, I have left to me the power of speech but I shall never use It again as a missionary from President Roosevelt's democratic party. Upon convening today- the senate promptly took up the railroad rate bill, the anti-pass amendment being the immediate subject of considera tion. Senator Culbertson presented a sub stitute for the provision adopted earl ier in the session. This substitute so modified tbe provision as to permit the families of railroad employes, bona fide attorneys for railroads, whether constantly employed or not and care takers of live stock, to accept free transportation. Senator McCumber chided the sen ate for fickleness, saying that after taking action on the pass question a few days ago, senators had been set troubling oyer another by the receipt of a few telegrams in opposition to the amendment He contended that the incident illustrated the influence of railroads and the bad effect of too much paternalism. "What we want," said the practical politician, "Is a safe man." "And what is your Idea of a safe man?" "One who won't give up anything except in response to our combination."—Wash ington Star.
