He has not. tho article says, even safeguarded the pre rogative granted hy the ukase creating a responsible cabinet of ministers, but ho allowed M. Durnovo, whose patent purpose Is to rut off the heads of anarchy and constitutionalism at the same time, to re port directly to the emperor and secure his majesty' approval of measures without consulting the premier. "A man like M. Guchkoff, ln whom the neoDle have confidence, must go to the head of the government," saya M. Prlan- 4 chanoff.

The fact that ln the cities j the electoral districts coincide with the police district give rise to the outcry that when the country Is "tranquillised" it I the purpose of the government to con trol the election. The Slovo warn tha people to quit talk ing of revolution and to begin seriously the campaign for the douma by the selec tion of the best representatives. . Foreseeing the probability that it will be Impossible to hold election in the Baltto provinces, the Caucasus and other dis turbed dtatrlcta, the government ha pro vided that when the certificates of half 1 the member to be elected are received the douma will be convened Immediately. At a meeting of the council of workmen last night some delegate, pending the or ganisation of ao armed revolution, advo cated recourse to the old terrorist plan of instituting a tribunal to try and condemn official guilty of tyranny, to uubll.ih the reason for auch condemnation, and then to execute the verdict of the tribunal. This, tha delegate said, would be preferable to the indiscriminate killing of people and Cossack who might be innocent. Not satisfied by the protection given by tha secret police to Count Wltte, whose life I In constant danger, officers of the Preo- brajrnaky Guard regiment were detailed to guard the premier, but on Friday they de- t-ided to do no further service In this con- nection, saying it was beneath the dignity of Guard officers to do police duty.

White flags Hying from a dozen factories and tenement house of 1'resna district, where the revolution aries made their last siand now bear mule witness to the end of the "December up rising in Moscow:" The entire district Is now occupied by troops. During the night tne vast majority of tha members of the "lighting legions" either surrendered or, after throwing away their arms, endeavored to escape in the guise of peaceful citizens. Only the members who acted aa a guard to the revolutionary com mittee stuck to their colors, and the sur render of this handful this morning fur nished the last act of the sanguinary drama. The staging of this last act was admirable a snow-covered landscape, the small Muck residence with a tiny red flag fluttering from Its gable, the end of UorbatofC bridge, Mack with the guns of the artillery, and a thin encircling line of the Semlnovpky regi ment of the guard, broken only directly In line of lire. Suddenly there was a flash of red Are from tho mouth of one of tho guns and a solid shot plowed through tha walla of the house. A few spluttering shots replied from a window. The cannon spoke again and again until a dozen shots hod been fired. It looked like murder to the spectatora on a hill and ao evidently thought the offi cers In command of the batter-, whi"h ceased fire. A reserve company of the SvmlnovHky regiment then advanced and fired volleys at the upper windows. At the third volley a white handkerchief attached to a bayonet was pushed through a shat tered pane. It waved frantically and all was over. The little garrison of thirty marched out and laid down their arms, a strange collection of rllles and repeating shotguns. All had revolvers. Strange to say not one of the men had even been wounded and when they found that they would not be immediately exe cuted they appeared to lie rather relieved that the end of the struggle had come. They gathered around the soldiers' bivouac, stretched their hands eagerly over the cheerful fires and liegged cigarette from the guurds. The number of prisoners is being con stantly augmented, most of the new ar rivals being arrested at the bridges or at other points of egress In tile Presna dis trict, which is crowded with refugees. The Associated Press correspondent learns After the final surrender the inhabitants swarmed Into the streets of the district and in a remarkably short time cleared awny the remains of the barricades and other obstructions with which for a week the revolutionaries had blockaded the dis trict The Workmen's council, or what Is left of it outside prison, has formally declared the strike off.

A great many of the workmen, however, are In an angry mood. They claim that they have been deceived by the revolutionaries and that their families are starving. These are threatening ven geance on the agitators. Some of the em ployers, like Mr. Barrv of the American Holler works, will shorten the usual Christ mas vacation from sixteen to four days In order to allow the men to earn some thing. The casualties here have leen greatly overestimated, but It Is difficult to obtain rellablo figures. I'p to Friday night only 1R7 were formally reported as dead and as wounded.

MINE WAS FlRtJ BY LONG WIRi Shoshone Count? Utters Reward ol S)1U,UOO for Arrest of Assassin and Sends lta Sheriff to v" Assist In Work. . BGiSE, Idaho, Dec. 31. A a been arrested at Caldwell who .era think may be the assassin of . er uovvtiui Frank Stuenenberg. His 'name bus not been reported. Five men in all have bccti detained on trivial charges In order that their whereabouts may be looked up. When daylight uawned on tho scene of the tragedy it was found that the dynamite had been exploded by pulling a wire. Pieces of wire and waxed flshllnu were tound in the trees on the lawn. Further, It Is be lieved that two bombs were used to make certain of carrying out the purpose of tha assassination. They seem to have been to gether, both being pulled at once. It was tiuite definitely determined during the night that the mine waa fired by a wire. The ex plosive was pluucd against the post against which the gate closed and on the inside of the fence. The post was to the victim's left as he entered, but the force of the ex plosion caught him on the right, showing . , .1 11 1 11 i . ti 1 he turned partially In closing the gale. Had the mino been set to go off from the move- ment of the gate, the explosion would have occurred as he went In, and it la therefore certain tho mine was fired by a wire and that the assassin, knowing his habit of making the stop to close tho gate, wulteU until he turned around. Shoshone county has offered a reward of 110.000 for the arprehenslon of the murderers and has sent Its sheriff to assist in the search. It was In that county, in the north ern end of the state, that the Coeur D'AIeno riots occurred In 1898. It is probable the funeral will be held In Boise, the body ly ing In state In the capltol building. Three Men In Sweat box. The olHocrs at Culdwell have three men whom they are sweating vigorously, be lieving one or more of them have some knowledge of the crime. One Is named Hogan and Is said to have been a miner. He has been uround town for three weeks and has told flimsy stories about his busl- ness. Another s a stranger who appeared at one of the lintels half an hour after the explosion, took a bed and refused to register. When rressed to give his name be said they might call him Smith. The third Is n RukpIuii who has been at Cald well at times for three years. He calls himself Smith. This man has been a free drinker, but yesterday no 0110 could In duce him to take a drink. It seems settled that the explosive uned was not giant powder. Those having knowledge of such substances and who have examined the scene state that' the explosive was un doubtedly nitroglycerin. It was in ft metnllic case, the metal being a combina tion of tin and zinc. A portion of the mechanism has been found. Including the trigger uacd In firing the charge. Tho nipple, . used, was-auch e ts found on -tt old-fnuhtoned muzzle loader shotgun. Pieces of metal were found sticking In all the trees. Governor Goodlng'a Opinion. Governor Gooding, after ImvinK spent the day at the scene, states there Is only one conclusion that Governor Steunenberg was killed for the stand he took at the time of the Coeur d'Alene riots. It transpires that Steunenberg received a let ter of warning while In Washington, about one and a half years ago. It stated his time was short. Borne such letters were also received several years ago. The funeral of ex-Governor Steunenberg will be held at Caldwell on Wednesday at 11 o'clock. The family preferred to have the proposed hohor of lying In state omitted, clinging to the simple Ideas that always characterized the ex-governor. Two Arrests at Welder, WEISER, lualio, Dep. 31. Two men ans wering the description of the men who It Is thought arranged the infernal machine at Caldwell by which ex-Governor Steunen berg waa killed, were arrested in this clly today. One ha a large scar on his face similar to the one on the face of the man who is suspected of having fixed the dyna mite to the gate. The men stated that they are miners and' one of them, who gave his name as Caldwell, waa unable to give a clear account of hla whereabouts during the last few day. He stated he had been working at Emmett. He waa very Indig nant over hia detention and made 'threats of resisting arrest and threatened the offi cers. A telegram was sent to Caldwell and Instructions were telephoned Lack to hold the prisoners for further investigation. BLOW TO UNIONIST PARTY Dake of Devonshire Advise Free Trade Wing to Vote for the Liberal Candidate. LONDON, Dec. SI. The Duke of Devon shire, liberal-unionist, ha Issued an im portant election manifesto, ln which he virtually advise the free trade unionists to support the liberal candidate rather than the protectionist unionists. By treating tha home rule question as a mere aide issue. he deals the strongest blow vet delivered t . ill D.,,.,.,.. , ,. against Mr. Baliour election tactics. The duke assert that there 1 no lnrtt,- flnn that the ODlnlon of the countrv hu uon mai me ui ' ' , . . " changed ince the rejection of the home rule bill, and that It Is in the hlgncst de gree Improbable that the government of Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman will Incur the risk of Introducing auch another measure ln the parliament. Therefore, he saya, the question of free trade versus protection must be the paramount ractor ln the com ing elections, and ha declare there must be no deviation from attachment u free trade. The duke confesses that ha knows no more now than when he left the late gov ernment of what U implied by the bal fourlan fiscal scheme, which it author declare to be acceptable to free trader and protectionist alike. On. th other haud, he say ther-J 1 no ambiguity about the Chamberlain propaganda, which is avowedly protectionist. The manifesto contends that the unionist party organization ha largely been com pleted by the protectionist wing, and that should th party become predominantly protectionist there will either be real dan ger to free trade or th prospect of the ex clusion of the union party for an 1 11 1 finite period from poaer. The duke declare that it la the duly of the unionist free traders to take such ac tion a to prove that the unionist party in power or in opposition Is still uncommitted to a retrograde fiscal policy by whomsoever U uay be propoeaw, GREAT REVIVAL OF FELIGION t hanae la Mental and Moral Attltade of the Mnltltnde Wrsisht by Force, from Within.

HOUSE WILL TAKE UP STATEHOOD 8ILL Measure for Admissian 0 Two State Will Probably Fan This Week. EXECUTIVE BUSINESS FOR SENATE Nominations far Canal Commissioners Will Be considered. SANTO DOMINGO TREATY WILL COME UP Recent Development In the Island Will Make Several Chanae In the Conventions Necessary. WASHINOTON. Deo. 31 The house of representatives will settle down to work aa soon as It meets on Thursday, and possibly before the end of the week it will puss tho bill providing tor the admission of two new slates. The first thing to dispose of is the refer ence of the president's message, the subject upon which Hoods of oratory wore ex pended before tho holiday recess, lieneral debate has cIokcM, and alter a short dis cussion under the live-minute rule a vote will be taken upon the only contested point, which is whether the portion of tho message relating to Insurance Khali be re ferred to the ways and nuitns committee or the committee on interstate ui.d for eign commerce. Tho contention lias been over the point whether It glxlallon tor tho control of Insurance companies shall bo under the taxing power of tho government or the power to control commerce between the states. There was a possibility of a clash be tween the Philippine tariff bill and tha Joint statehood bill. The Philippine bill is already reported, nnd being a privileged matter, can be called up at any time. Tho statehood bill is still ln committee, put It 1 known that It can be brought at nny time and put before the house. Acting In ac cordance with the decision of the repub lican caucus, it is expected the majority members of the committee on rules will bring in a rule making the statehood bill for the admlsHloii of .two states a special order. As the measure now stands, and aa it will be reported, it provide for the admission of Oklahoma and Indian Terri tory as one state, with the name of Okla homa, and the admission of New Mexico and Arizona as another state, named Ari zona. There Is practically no opposition anywhere to the Oklahoma proposition, but there is determined opposition to coupling New Mexico and Arizona together. When the statehood bill Is out of the way the house will be ready for the Phil ippine tariff bill, and the Interesting con test that ensued over the reduction of duty on Cuban products is likely to be repeated. The beet and cano sugar Interest have become aroused, and have built up a vigor ous opposition, " but thrt pifsent pl.vn do... not contemplate bringing tip the Philippine bill this week. F.XECITIVE III Il:.S, FOR Nominations for Canal Commissioners and Dominican Treaty to Come I'p. WASHINGTON. Dec. 3t.-The senate will not do very much legislative business this week. It Is not expected that the session will nrrupy more than two days Thursday and Friday. The ship subsidy bill is th unfinished business nnd Senator Galllnger may open the ddwte In favor f.f the meas ure. This will depend upon the desire of senator ho may wish to consider other business. There Is a considerable amount of executive business, some of which Is In controversy, and this may consume the few- days the senate Ih In session. At the time of the adjournment the con firmation of the Panama canal commission ers had been reconsidered and the nomina tion of Mr. J. R. Tilshop as a new commis sioner hns just been made. These nomina tions had nil been referred to the commit tee on Interorennle canals, and It Is said that reports will be made In order thut the senate may take them up. There ate some other nominations in controversy, notably two other officers who have been detailed ns chiefs of bureaus In the Wnr department, and a legal oucstlnn has been raised ns to the meaning of the law providing for such detnlls. Some other nominations hnve been held up and the senate may devote all its time this week to executive business. Even if nomlnstlons are not to be considered, tho new developments in Santo Domingo will afford opportunity to discuss the trenty in formally. At present that treaty Is not be. fore the senate, having a second time been referred to the committee on foreign rela tions. It Is said that It will lie amended ln several particulars before It again cornea before the senate. As If In anticipation of the flight of Morales and the establishment of another government in Santo Domingo, the State department had recommended that the treiX1" be amended so that it would confer authority on the t'nlted States to deal with any existing govern ment In the Island. Possibly the situation may he discussed In the senate even be fore the treaty Is reported. REI,MOT tS01(KS COMMITTEE Men Who Will Assist l-i Movement for Pilhtlrlly In I'nllllr. WASHINGTON, D.
