LAKE WASHINGTON CANAL
BILL IS BEFORE HOUSE
Washington, May 28—The new plan
for the construction of the Lake VVash
intgou canal has met with the unqual
ified approval of Representative Bur
ton, chairman of the rivers and har
bors committee, and the prospect is
that the necessary legislation will be
authorized at this session.
A conference was had between Sen
ators Piles aud Ankeny, Representa
tive J oues, Representative Burton, ex-
Gov. McGraw aud James A. Moore,
with the result thpt a bill drawn by
Representative Jones providing for the
construction of the canal over the
government right of way was cordial
ly approved by all concerned.
Later in the day the bill was intro
duced in the house by Representative
Humphrey and referred to the com
mittee on rivers aud harbors, of which
Mr. Jones is a member.
Gov. McGraw and Mr. Moore had a
talk with Gen. McKenzie aud Maj.
Hodges, of the army engineer's office,
and the attitude of these officers is
generally friendly to the project.
Maj. Hodges was inclined to ques
tion of making the government respon
sible for the maintenance of the water
way, but it is believed this objection
will not weigh with congress, as the
canal, when completed, will be an av
enue of marine commerce reaching
probably very large proportions.

RUSSIAN PARLIAMENT EXPRESSES
OPINION OF MINISTRY.
Demand Made that Present Cab'
inet Resign—Apparently Re
fusal of the Demand Will Re
suit in Armed Conflict—Crisis
St. Petersburg, May 27. —At the end
of a memorable seven-hour sessiou the
lower house of parliament yesterday
indignantly rejected the government's
policy as presented by Premier Uor
emkyu aud, with ouly seven dissent
ing votes, declared lack of confidence
in the ministry. This practically
throws down the gauntlet to the bu
reaucracy with a demand for the re
tirement of the present cabinet aud its
supercessiou by a ministry approved
by a majority of the house.
The spirit of revolution is in the air
and a coniflct between the crown and
the nation appears inevitable. While
the house avoided the appearance of
presenting an ultimatum, the govern
ment seems to have uo alternative be
tween surrender and war. The gloom
iest forebodings are heard everywhere,
and it is generally believed the coun
try is on the verge of a gigantic strug
gle, which may bo delayed, but not
Crisis May Come Monday.
Dispatches from the interior indi
cate that the struggle may be inaugu
rated tomorrow with a general strike,
when the people learn that all amnesty
has been refused. While the premier's
statementp romised co-operation with
the lower house, "insofar as the latter
does not transgress the limits of the
fundamental laws," it recoguizes the
agrarian question as paramouut, pro
posing to remedy the deficiency in
land through the opperatiou of the
agrarian emigration to Siberia. It
proposed the introduction of universal
and compulsory education, the reform
of the administration and realization
Premier (-toremkyn's statement, how
ever, returned a uou jftissumus on the
chi-.f question raised by the house. It
declared that the fiat iaud exceptional
laws cannot be withdrawn until mur
der and terrorism cease. The expro
priation of crown aud church aud pri
vate lands was declared inadmissable.
The right of investigating administra
tive acts, the statement declMfed, be
longs to the crown, the house having
only the power of interpellation.. Am
nesty, Premier Goremkyn said, is sole
ly tjie prerogative of the emperor.
Such, briefly, was the government's
reply to the address of the house, and
the premier's words seemed to arouse
all the latent resentment in the hearts
of the members of the house The con
stitutional democratic leaders from
the first gave free reigu to passion,
and oratot after orator denounced the
government's program and said that

there was no tiope for harmony Count
Heydon, the leader of the right, de
serted the government, saying inas
much as it had refused to reddeem its
promise to repeal the exceptional law,
his vote also was for censure.

ed,, provides that the house shall pro

government the responsibility for the

was drafted by the labor group. It is
"The declaration of the premier
heard by parliament today contains
the decisive declaration that the gov
ernment in nowise wishes to meet the
demands of the people By its refusal
to satisfy the popular demands, the
government clearly shows its disregard
for the real interests of the people and
in its present unwillingness to relieve
from the shadow of new disasters a
country which is harassed by poverty,
lawlessness and the continued unpun
ished arbitrariness of the authorities,
the lower house of parliament consid
ers that it is itsplaiu duty to proclaim
its complete distrust of au irresponsi
ble ministry. It regards as a most
necessary condition to the pacification
of the country and fruitful work by
parliament the immediate resignation
of the present cabinet by a ministry
possessing its confidence. Parliament
thereupon votes to proceed with the
regular order of the day."
St. Petersburg. May 28.—With
breathless anxiety society awaits the
government's response to the bold ac
tion of the lower house of Parliameut
Saturday, which, in censuring the mi
nistry and ilj»mandiug its retirement,
was like a deliberate slap in the face
and a direct challenge, which the gov
ernment, though inclined to follow its
usual policy of temporizing and com
promise, can hardly avoid meeting.
Parliament has burned the bridges and
virtually has taken the step which the
French states- general did when it
transformed itself into a national as
sembly. By flaunting the fundamen
tal laws and declaring that it proposes
to exercise full parliamentary rights,
with a responsible ministry, it has be
come , in the eyes of the law. revolu
tionary, and from that positiou there
teems to be no retreat. News of the
action of the house came like an elec
tric shock. Both sides recognize the
acuteuess aud seriousness of the mo
ment, but panic is in the government
and not in the popular camp.
Premier Oioretukyn went to Peterhof
immediately after the adjournment of
Saturday's sessiou, to confer with the
emperor, and Sunday was devoted to
agitated conferences between the ad
ministration and the premier. The
constitutional democrats are display
ing coolness in the face of the crisis.
They declare it is their purpose to
go calmly ahead with the work before
them, forcing the government to take
the initiative. The strength of their
positiou lies in the conviction that the
Kussian nation, and especially the
peasantry, who are sure to be discon
tented with the flat concerning the
expropriation of lands, is behind par
liament in its rejection of the govern
ment's policy as utterly inadaptable.
Constitution or Revolution.
"The government, if it dares to
tight," said M. Kokoshine, one of the
constitutional democrats, "can dis
perse the parliament, but the victory
of the bureaucracy wonld only be tem
porary. It would inevitably be fol
lowed shortly by a bloody revolution,
which wonld not leave a stick of the
present government standing. The
emperor must choose between a real
constitutional government and the loss
not only of his crown, but probably
The social democrats and social rev
olutionists are delighted with the turn
of events, believing they furnish just
the stimulus net'ded for the rising they
The press, almost without excep
tion, is pessimistic, recoguizing the
rgavity of the situation aud tempest
which the denial of the right of forced
expropriation of lands will provoke
among the peasantry.
Prof. Karief in a special article says
a parallel of the revolutionary stage
of the French revolution is now com
plete. He invites the ministry to sub
stitute for the 1906 events those of
1789 and then to consider to what step
they wish to continue their present
STATE COMMISSION CAN
REGULATE CAR SHORTAGE
Olympia. May 28.—1n an opinion
just rendered. Attorney (-ieneral J. D.
Atkinson holds that the term "recip
rocal demurrage," as found in the
railroad commission law of 1905, gives
the commission authority to compel
the railroad companies to furnish cars
to shippers and to enforce penalty for
failure to do so within a reasonable
The decision is regarded as of the
utmost importance, both by the mem
bers of the railroad commission and
by railroadt racttl officials. The com
mission is expected to promulgate re
ciprocal demurrage rules in the near
fguture, in accordance with the attor
ney general's decision, and the vexed
car shortage qusetion will then be
transferred from the railroad office to
the railroad commission itself.
The states of Virginia aud Georgia
enforce reciprocal demurrage rules of
this kind through their railroad com
missions, aud car shortage troubles
are said to have been reduced to a
minimum in those states.
