St. Petersburg, May 28. With

nwattH tbo government's response to
the bold action or the lower hoiiKO of
jiarllameat. which, in censuring the
ministry and demanding Its retire

the tucj and a direct challenge which
the government, though Inclined to
,jireler Ita usual policy of temporlza
(ion and compromise, can hardly
avoid meeting. Parliament has burned
tho brldgo and virtually has taken the
Step which the French state's gcnerul

By Haunting tho fundamental laws
end practically declaring that it pro
poses to exerciso full parliamentary
rights, with a rosponBiblo ministry, It
has becomo in the eyes of the law a
revolutionary body and from that po
sition thero seems no retreat. Tho
pewB of the action of tho house camo
like an electric shock, the people gen
erally being as greatly surprised aa
tho bureaucracy nt tho promptness
with which tho whole of the govern

ing the expropriation of lands, Is be
liind parliament in its rejection of tho
government's policy as utterly unac
ceptable. May Lose Crown and Head.
"Tho government, If it dares to
fight," said M. Kokoshlme, one of tho
constitutional democratic members of
tho house, "can disperse the parlia
ia.eut; but the victory of the bureau
cracy would only be temporary. It
would Inevitably be followed shortly
toy a bloody revolution, which would
not leave a stick of the present gov
ernment standing. The emperor must
choose between a real constitutional
government and tho Iosh not only of
feis crown, but probably of his head."
Tho social democrats and social rev
olutionists are delighted at the turn
of events, believing they furnlBh Just
the stimulus needed for the rising
