ii'cl.i -U In tho afternoon and onntlnued
ri'.M! o lilnlirht without speakers n-pie-went
it.tr nil the partiea having found time
to uddivns tlio House.
All tie cabinet mlnlstem remained
throuchout the session and listened to a
-rle of opinions more ouUrpoken than
njiy ever before sxrresaed In the Duma.
The criticism which was leveled against
the ge'vernment was entirely In reepect
t' alleged inadeiuate arrangementa In
vrrloim directions for the pneoutlon ot
the war. The late war minister In par
ticular was criticised.
"TniM the people." was the burden of
:r.( st of the speeches. Army supplies and
munition were the particular basis for
allacl; noon the old-fashioned methods
And i hl-fiiAhloiKHl abuses, and the Duma
J c laitnrd Us right to ta.ke a pLrt In tho
j executive business of the country, and to
hoi 1 the minister restinnible to It for
the conduct of their offices..
Withal, there was evident an .mtabl
I feeling of good-natured fellowship be
! tween the Dumt and the minister! which
j has never been apparent before. There
j was an absence of stiffness between gotv-
ernment and legislature, and at the same
me a new and finer dignity.
I While the ministers were atlll maMmr
! their addresses, there was an Incident

n.gvnted to the platform, cries, at first
ei I, med, then gradually stronger, rore
friiin several parts of the house, and M.
