NEW YORK, May J. The Tribune today
saya that representative of both foreign
and American fire Insurance companies
who were In the city yesterday discussed
united action to effect a compromise In
the adjustment of loaae by the 8an Fran
cisco fire. The discussion waa largely upon
the question as to the attitude the ad
justers of companies should be Instructed
lo take In regard to disputed questions.
The great companies express a strong pur
pose to be not only Just, but generous In
eases of doubt with the victims of the
San Francisco fire, but they all evidently
feel what was expressed by the president
of a large American company, who said
"The adjuster for this company will not
lie allowed to waive the condition of Its
policies nor change restrictions of it char
ter. We have no more right to pay a loss
occasioned by' earthquake than we have to
pay a loss of life. W are not an earth
quake Insurance company nor' a life, In
surance company." . ', .,
Because of exemption from loss toy earth
quake damage," well Informed Insurance
men estimated yesterday that' the com
panies would ultimately pay from 60 to 75
per cent of the aggregate amount of risk.

ST. PETERSBURG, May 4. 3:30 a. m
The Novoe Vremya, whkh under the new
regime assumes Its old .relations with the
government, prints today what purport
to be an authoritative -statement .-of the
Qoremykln ministry,, coupled with a atnlr
ment that, as has been prsoUcted by the
Associated Press, the official announcement
may not be given. out before the convoca
tion of the national Parliament.
The ministry, which -presents several un
expected names. Is exjvnotod lo find far
less favor with the -llbera-i party In the
popular bramh of ,the government than
the Wlttr -administration.- The object In
postponing the announcement f tho new
ministry . Is not hard, to. fathom. Father
Igatler was sejected as procurator, Instead
of M. Shainsky-Shankaton-. and M. Helti
sky, an nrch . reactionary .and notorious
aide tu the. late Mlulstet, of the Interior
Flehve, as minister at agriculture, v These
two names alone are enough to put the
ministry under eternal ban with the lib
erals. The additional, namea arc tloremykin,
who, like Count Wllte. is to la premier
without portfolio: Slolypin Ualltiin. min
ister of Instruction; M Kodovosoff, minis
ter of finance; Itvnlsky. oreign minister;
Rukloff, a former aide to the Grand Duke
Alexander Michelovltch- minister . of trade
and Industry; Scwaneliach, former minis
ter of agriculture, controller; Nemachleff.
who during his tenure of. office has kept
his fingers out of fHilltlca. and Blrllef.
Rodlger and Fredericks, who are not re
sponsible to the minister, retain their pot't
lolios. Recording to the Nov.oe Vremya.

not over a month of life.
Comment of Press.
The Straua (Country) says: "The pass
ing of Witte, with whom Parliament could
not work, opens the door to a possible
rspproachmunt of the representatives of
The Nasha Bhlsn (OurTlme). while yery
suspicious, thinks It premature lo imagine
that Witte' departiire'ls a declaration of
war against Parliament. It says: "The
government, never "bold, has always been
given to procrastination. With honeyed
words it seemed to postpone a declaration
of open hostilities as long; as possible."
The Slovo regards th downfall of tho
Wltte ministry a the natural sequence
of the unanimous .protest of the press
against the drafting of fundamental laws.
"But Wltte is trying lo gtv& it the aspect
of uelng due to his own refusal to follow
the policy '" of DurnQvo." aay the. Blovo,
Id order.' to prove-tliat he lias always been
the renl protector of ' liberalism agatnat
reaction which he lblhks,ls the Imperative
duty of. the. gaverujrierit. He proved that
he did not want to-ajttarrel with Parliament
by Inviting the" representatives of the
majority in Parliament to form a ministry,
or, if not that, he meant to form a merely
temporary .cabinet,, understanding that It,
wouM give way laterl -. . .' ,

Kora.ieff and- .other srWret agent had for
weeks been traveling In Russia trying to
org-.tiiae a govern instil 'peasant party and
to eecure . the adherence of the members
elect to Parlfamenf for whom lodgings In
government buildings at cheap prices had
been arranged by Durnovo and secret In
structions WT-e sent ;.o the provincial
goverribf to -1 -duce f. peasant member to
occupy these lodgings! The plot wa ex.
posed hi several provinces and aroused
pxcltment among the peasanta and protests
from eighteen governors. Nevertheless, It
was partially successful. About forty
members-elect were already occupying gov
ernment lodgings yesterday. However,
they became auspicious at the cheap ac
commodation, 4 he exclusion of radicals and
the activity of Yerogln, a member-elect
fr6m' Grodno province, In" trying to form
a dls'inct peasant party in Parliament.
Yerogln formerly was a provincial govern
ment official and when "a. comrade dis
played sign of resentment at his diction
Yerogln revealed the whole plot by an
nouncing that he had been selected to
watch the peasants and that If they were
Insuborlnate they .would be expelled from
St. Petersburg. Thereupon the peasanta
broke out Into open rebellion and .vacated
the government lodgings. ,
Resignation Kot Accepted.
Much mystification ha ben aroused by
the fact "that Emperor Nicholas has not
yet In .definite wbrfls ' accepted Count
Witte's resignation' a premier. It aeems
that Wltte received a letter from the-' em
peror thanking him' for his sealous and
able aervlces In. the past and , Wltte ac
cepted this In connection with hi prof
fered resignation and,.the report of M.
Goremykln' appointment to the premier
ship as .being equivalent to his dismissal.
The delay In the appearance 0f a re
script accepting Wltte; resignation Is giv
ing cause for Comment and the theory
Is advanced that the emperor 1 still hesi
tating, tn view of the general- expression
of opinion In regard to M. Goremykln, to
discard the ato premier. At the same time
It Is known positively that Interior Minister
Durnovo resignation ha been tendered.

Mr. Tillman said he could review instances

decency, but the judge committing them

the judge waa proved' guilty of violating
his oath of offlc.
Mr. Tillman next paid hi reapecta tu
the case of Judge Charles Swayne of
Florida, whom the aenate refused last ses
sion to Impeach.
Mr. Tillman , then closed with an apology,
explaining that th situation wus such a
to require the administering of "some

Mr. Tillman replied that he would depend
upon the supreme roui-t.
Mr. Bailey also replied that In case a
temporary Injunction waa granted In a
given case It would be held up Indefi
nitely, whereaa It would be expedited If
there should he no Injunction. These dec
larations led to a controversy over the
right of appeal In Injunction cases In which
Messrs. Baltey. Spooner, Bacon and Cul
Mr. Bacon nskod Mr. Tillman If he did
not believe It proper to call the attention
of the country to the dereliction of Judges,
aa there Waa no way of punishing them ex
cept by Impeachment.
Mr. Bacon responded that the senate had
no right to originate charges and that for
It to do so waa to usurp the power of the
house, and In n measure disqualify sen
ators from conducting Impeachment pro
ceedings. He admitted that he had voted
for the Impeachment of Judge Swayne and
aald that he was sorry Swayne had not
been found guilty.
Mr. Tillman declared that he had not In
tended to censure the entire Judiciary, but
contended that so long as there mere such
men as Mccormick. Pardee and Swayne on
the bench the criticism of Individual mem
ber of the Judiciary was Justified.
Teller Praises Jadlrlari.
Mr. Teller praised the Judiciary of the
United States a the most exemplary known
to the history of the World, but he had
known of many Individuals who had de
parted from the high standard of the great
body. He announced himself as favorable
to the rate bill as it passed the house with
the addition of the Bailey amendment. In

Mr. Bailey opposed Mr. Racon's . conten

Mr. Foraker made an argument for a
Mr. Dolllver contended that a court re
view provision in the pending bill would
be mere surplusage and Mr. Foraker urged
that the omission of such a provision had
been due to the desire to Save shippers th

because the president wanted my place
and for no other reason. I now learn
through the perslHtent industry of some
anonymous person, the nature of the
charge preferred against me by H. H.
D. Pelrce, and I solemnly declare them lo
be false in every essential particular. 1
also solemnly declare that they are made
by men who had been charged before me
with various offenses, from murder down,
and that these men formed a criminal con
spiracy against me to have me removed
because my continuance In office meant
the absolute compulsory abandonment of
their criminal practlcea within my Juris
diction. I solemnly declare that not a reputable
man or firm. American or foreign, resident
and doing business within my Jurisdiction
ever utted a single word or complaint
againat me or my administration, a fact
which H. H. r. Pelrce could easily have
ascertained, although he waa only forty
eight hours In Canton, and did not devote
two houra of that time to any Investigation
whatever. He quotes a certain firm as
complaining against me and gives that
firm a bill of health for high business
character, etc. A little Investigation would
have shown that that Arm desired my re
moval because I waa largely instrumental
In showing up how it had robbed the
American railway, and I had stopped Ita
doing so most effectively. I do not In any
way, directly or Indirectly, question Hie
high right and privilege of the president
to remove me from the position Of consul
general to which I waa promoted for "con
In the name of Justice. I reiterate the
demand that I cabled from Canton. China,
on the dale of the receipt of the wire re
moving me from office. I demand a
thorough and exhaustive investigation at
the hands of your honorable committee,
when the truth will be fully eatbllhed,

WASHINGTON," May J.-Cnhla is abaurt
Ing It dignity and rights as to the province
of Manchuria, wrested from Russian control
as a result of the war, in a manner that la
not entirely agreeable to all of the powers.
The first manifestation of this falls upon
th Vnlted States. Partly to sustain the
Chinese claim to sovereignty over the prov
ince and also to secure the open door as
agninst either of the parties to the great
combat, the State depurtmcnt, early In the
quarrel, took steps to establish consulates
at Antung, Tatung-kow, Mukden and Dalny.
During the progress of the war and whll
the country Has In military occupancy It
wa not possible to actually open offices at
theae places. 'But as soon as Japan and
Russia were willing to withdraw thuir
troops, It was, of course', assumed that
there would be ho further difficulty experi
enced In Installing the American consul.
Now, however,' It appears that China Is
Interposing obstacles, supposed at first to
be grounded upon a desire to merely as
sert Itself and gratify Its vanity, but at
last found to have a much more substantial
basis. In fact, the Chinese government.
It la understood. Is now determined to make
a stand against any extension of foreign
land holding in China and finds the oppor
tunity to make the laaue In connection with
the establishment of foreign consulate In
Forelga Settlement Barred.
In Shanghai, Tien TSln, Canton and Mon
golia, there are-what are known a foreign
settlement, wherein tha consulate are
located and the. ground title in many
cases right hi the head of foreign govern
ment or In cltisen of foreign countries.
These settlement have - always been ab
nnxlou to the Chinese and they have de
termined to prevent the' extension of the
holdings. Thence In the ca of the Man
churlan consulates, while the Chinese gov
ernment Is willing that these great trade
agencies should be established, It wishes to
permit this existence only on condition that
the necessary lands for the foreign occu
pants of the town shall remain In the own
ership of the Chines government and that
foreigner bev permitted to llv thereupon
only under thirty-year lessee. Th plan
I regarded with, disapproval in aom quar
ter, because the great appreciation In value
of the lands under foreign occupancy and
Improvement would probably make' It Im
possible for th original lesseea to renew
their leaaea on any term within their
power to meet, but the Chinese government
has already inaugrated thia new policy of
foreign exclusion In 'th Important city f
Chinan Fu, by prohibiting th connection
of foreigner with the electric lighting and
trolley systems or In connexion with any of
the public Utilities and the same principle
i being applied o the construction of rail
roads, so that unlesa there Is an alignment
of the powers against the Chinese asser

end of foreign land holding In China I be
lieved to b at hand.
