PARIS. Nov. 2V (Special Cablegram to
The Bee.) One of the most Interesting In
terviews upon the situation In Russia la
thnt obtained with M. Roubanovttch, the
manager of the Tribune Russe. He de
clared that the revolutionary movement
would be maintained. The present condi
tion of affairs was but a short stage in
the course of evnts. "No doubt the rall-
edared M. Rou-

destitution and women's tears, as well as
the apparent concessions made to the pop
ular demands, will cause the workmen to
return to their dens. But this lull will
hardly last long, and the coming revival
will probably bo provoked by a peasant
movement. The socialist, revolutionary and
democratic parties feel no confidence.
Count Wltte's policy Is an artful one. He
would like to bring- about a split In the
opposition camp and to convince the mod
erates that the socialists, whom he treats
as anarchists, are their enemies. The In
testine struggle by which the liberal force
would thus be exhausted the moderates
against the democrats and revolutionists
would enable Count Wltte to restore order
and at least partially to destroy the rev
olutionary organisation while reducing the
pretensions of the radicals.

DUBLIN, Nov. 25. (Special Cablegram to
The Bee.) In one direction at least has the
land act moved swiftly and smootnly for
ward without a hitch and the government
has shown every dlsositlon to lubricate Its
progress. It bus been quite succVsstul In
securing extravagant prices, with the bonus
superadded, for the landlords of Ireland,
in this direction its efficiency has been
greater and its speed more rapid than the
most sanguine anticipations. The govern

in which the alleged paralyzing influence
of the castle Is felt. Among the most val

was the power to Include town holdings In

these Kvrrs was to be found among the
occupying tenants of the town of Ballug
hudcrven in the county of Mayo. The us

Districts bourd, which occupies the position
of ground landlord to the town. The oc

Interpose any objection to the use of the
word In a larger sense. On the other hand,
tho charge is made that the word "empire"
has been used to denote in the past a large
variety of political combinations to which
the British empire hears no resemblance
whatever. The Idea is advanced that sim

used in a despotic sense In the past uges,
and Is still vised in a despotic sense In
some sections of the world today, that does
not necessarily condemn its present demo
A more serious argument of Mr. Moni
man's is that directed against any policy
which would give control over the Colonies
or the power of advising them to an Im-)n-rlal
council sitting In London without
giving it a similar power of control ami,
ndvlco over the mother country. Those
Interested in the formation of a council of
the empire assert that nothing of the kind
is contemplated. It is claimed that the
colonies should he as fully and powerfully
represented as they are now In the period
ical colonial conferences, and that the
i ouncil would he, in fact, nothing but the
erection of those conferences into a per
manent system. Tho element of continuity
would be secured by a secretariat such as
is proposed in the resolutions of the British j
Umpire league. It is proposed to provide
Hie Imperial defense committee with a
permanent guarantee of expert advice, and j
with the collection of all the necessary
data on which to base its decisions. A .

the Congo government to inquire into the
atrocities which have taken place In the
Congo Free State has Just presented a
It deals with Investigations lasting five
months, during which several hundred wit
nesses were examined. A glowing account
Is given of the results secured, by the ad
ministration. The commissioners state that

were plunged into a state of barbarity,

at the present time, the slave trade bis
disappeared, cannibalism Is concealed, hu
man sacrifices become rare, towns ars
founded, railways are constructed to the
very heart of the equatorial forest and
eighty steamers run up and down ths
Examining the question of forced labor,
the commissioners say that native labor Is
indispensable for the development of the
country, and that, moreover, the natives,
having few needs, have no inclination for
work. It is, therefore, only by making an
obligation of labor that It is possible to
bring the native to give regular labor,
and the state can only compel the popula
tion to work by making a tax on labor.
The obligation to work Is one of the most
effective agents for the transformation of
the native population, who otherwise
would continue to live In a primitive state.
It Is admitted that certain taxes are
onerous and reforms are suggested. While
the India rubber tax has not In Itself any
thing onerous. It is rendered heavy by the I
obligation on the picker to go to that part '
of the forest, which Is sometimes very far
distant, where the India rubber trees are
found. The commission suggests that tho
India rubber tax should be made collective
and that the times for the payment should
be at longer Intervals.
Blame Is attached to the detention of
women hostages, a practice forbidden a
long time by the state. The long period
of detention Is criticized.
Native foremen used by the trading com
panies have abused the authority which
has been conferred on them. Their assist
ants have provoked numerous sanguinary
conflicts with the natives and the com
mission demands thut the state, which has
already prohibited the placing in the vil
lages of soldiers belonging to the public
forces, should put an end to the system
of sentinels which It has found to exist,
replace them, as far as possible, by the
chief of the village himself, nnd withdraw
the permits for currying arms.
It is demunded that a law should desig
nate clearly what authorities can order
punitive operations and determine In what
conditions such measures shall be taken
and In what form It should take place. It

orders. British and French torpedo boats
were left behind to keep up" communica

It was learned at the Foreign office to

them that the powers In the naval dem

It Is now definitely determined that the
objective of the demonstration will be the
