ST. PKTERSBl'RG, June 1.-The Associ

clare a recess of Parliament June 2D, and
that his majesty and the royal family will

the Finnish fjords on board the imperial

for that purpose. If this decision Is ex

for an Immediate and bloody struggle.
The gToup of toll, as an . outcome of its
open declaration against a recess, passed a
fresolutlun declaring that neither now nor In
the near future can Parliament be recessed,
that the members will not leave their poets
and so long as the arbitrariness and out

terrors of Impending outbreaks and the suf

reign. Parliament must continue until It hag
achieved "a land of freedom" or exhausted

Attempt to Blame 'William.
The conservative-liberal newspaper Strana
prints a story that Emperor William hng
promised his support to Emperor Nicholas
If the Russian ruler adopts a firm policy.
But this report Is clearly traceable to
sou re ea hostile to Germany and which have
tried to make it appear that William Is the
evil genlur of Nicholas.
t'ndoubtedly It is true that Germany Is
concerned over the situatlonVon its western
frontier and generally over the mainte
nance of the monarchic principle in Russia,
and It Is quite probable that Grand Puke
Vladimir, on behalf of Emperor Nicholas,
disc ir- ed the situation with the Berlin gov
ernment. , But there is no more evidence
that Emperor William Is counselling Em
peror Nicholas In a reactionary sense than
there waa in the statement that he tried to
influence him against peace at Portsmouth,
an accusation which was fully disproved.
It la quite natural that Russia and Ger
many should have an understanding cov
ering a possible uprising In Russian Poland
which might spread to German Poland, but

- Panicky Feel lag on Boorses. t
The gravity ol the general situation grows
hourly. The bourses of St. Petersburg and
Moscow are in a panicky aoDdltlon, and
the social democrats and social revolu
tionists, considering Parliament to be a
negligible quantity, are pushing their cam
paign for n armed uprising with Increased
vigor. Pemonatratlona are dally occurring
In the streeta of Moscow In favor of a
general strike, with which the proletariat
leadera are trying to precipitate a conflict.
The agitation among the workmen here
has reached a boiling point and patrols
are again In heavy foroa in the industrial
quarters. In the country the rural guards
are throwing in their lot with the peas
ants, refusing to protect the landlords. The
progress of the revolutionary propagan'i
in the army la seriously alarming the gov

accepted from Senator Reverldre. that
ilheia waa -no provision, for making the
plants accessible at all hours to the In
spectors. The provision was put in in an
other place; but it is not as good as the
original provision. The court provision is
the one to which I moat object, although
by no means the only one to which I ob
ject; It Is one of many. Aa regards this. I
wish to repeat that if deliberately designed
to prevent the remedying of the evils com
plained of, this is the exact provision
which the friends of the packers and the
Backers themselvea would have provided,
t is absurd to assert that any auch
provision ia needed. Why have you not
put such a provision In the postofflce law
as it anecis iraua orders; in tne law as
It affecta fraudulent entries of homesteads,
etc.? Congress cannot take away the con
stitutional right of the packers or of any
one else, to the protection of, the courts.
But such a provision as that under con
sideration " does not represent a dealre to
secure the ' constitutional rights of any
man. It represents, doubtleaa, In some
cases, an honest though wholly mistaken
conviction; in other cases It represents a
deliberate purpose to Interfere with ef
fective legislation by trying to provide
that the -courts shall In reality do admin
istrative work, which they would be tha
first to assert their Inability to perform.
Limit Power of Ofllrrra.
' If the bill, as you reported it from the
committee, were enacted Into law, you
would have the functions of the secretary
of agriculture narrowly limited, ao aa to
be purely ministerial; and when declared
a given alaughter house unsanitary, or a
given product unwholesome, acting on the
Judgment of the government experts, you
would put on the Judge who had no
knowledge whatever of the conditions, the
burden ot stating whether or not the sec
retary waa right. In Chicago for instance,
you would make any Judge whom the pack
era choose to deaignate, and not the ex
perts of the Pepartment oX Agriculture,
the man to decide on any question
of the kind which the packers
thought it worth while to dispute. You
may possibly remember the recent Judicial
decision in Chicago in which the packers
were concerned. 1 wish to repeat tnat line
provision is, in my Judgment, one which, If
enacted Into law, will nullify the major
part of the good which can be expected
From the enactment of thia law. You as
sert that the packers insist . upon having
a rigid Inspection law passed. .f they
sincerely desira a rigid inspection law
they will Insist upon thla provision being
takn out. Leaving it in is Incompatibly
with aecuring a property efficient law.
To ao much of your letter aa speaks of
my having made lnnuendoa about a com
mittee of the house or of your knowledge
of the English language, etc., It ia not
nereaaary to make any answer. Tou state
that if I or my advisara will point out
specifically wherein the b.ll fa Is to accom
plish my purpose "it will t promptly
remedied." 1 am happy to te'.l you that I
have today seen a member r,1 your com
mittee, Mr. Adams, seeing him by request
of tiie speaker, and I went over with him
the ground, with Mr. McCahe and Mr.
Reynolds, the various points In which the
bill, as you have reported It, fails to ac
complish our purpose, and mane tho spe
cific recommendation necessary in each cose
to remedy the failure; and in each case
Mr. Adams slated that he personally
would acc'pt the alterations we proposed.
He agreea with me that the-court review
proposition should be excluded. He agreea
as to the dozen other changes which we
think should lie made. If these changes,
which Mr. Adam, says he thinks xhould
be adopted, are adopted, your amendment
will become as good sa the Bercrldge
amendment In Mr. McCahe'g opinion,
somewhat better than the Beveridge
amendment Is, unchanged.
I rare not a whit fur the language of the
amendment. What 1 am concerned about
ia to have It accomplish the object I have
i in view, namely, a moruugii una rigni, ana
not a ahum. Inspection. In my Judgment
the amendment as reported by you falls
f to accomplish this object, whereas the Bev-
erlnge amendment and tne House amend
ment, with the changes which Mr. Adams
has vtated he alii gladly accept, both sub
stantially accomplish the purpose I have In
view. I will accoidingly gladly aocept
either, or accept any alteration of either, or
of both, which will accomplish this end.
Your truly. THKOrx'HK ROOSEVELT.
Hon. Jam's Wadsworth, Chairman Com
mittee on Agriculture.

An effort la to be made today by mem
bers of the house committee on agricul

Sketch of Hla Life.
James Mills Woolworth waa at tha aama
time ona of the boat known and able law
yers of tha west. For many years he
held the record of tha number ot cases
argrued by a single lawyer from places
west of Chicago. Law waa hla vocation,
literature hia avocation, and alongalde the
description of lawyer belongs that of
author. - His exertions In publlo capacities
were also largely apportioned to the
Protestant Episcopal church, and ha waa
chancellor of the dloceae of Nebraska for
many years. He preferred to be called
"chancellor" over any other title but pub
licly ho waa known com mo nix. a Jkudge"
Woolworth, though ho never occupied a
poaitapn on the bench. ;"'
Mr. Woolworth waa bom at Onondaga.
N. Y , June 18, ISIS, and therefore lived
tb 'within' a few daya of 77 yeara. He
came from a line ot ancestors distinguished
for their Intellectual ability. The family,
originated In England and aent representa.
tlvea to America In the earliest years ot
the colonies. Various immediate progeni
tors of the deceooed wore, educated at
Yal. and received degrees from that col
lege and from Princeton. Hla fathar waa
Samuel Buel Woolworth, who devoted hla
life to education and conducted Courtland
academy at Homer, N. -Y. Later ha waa
principal of tha Albany State Normal
school and secretary of the regents of tha
Mother froaa Datrh Stock.
James M. Woolworth'a mother wag So
phia MIckles, descendant of an old Putch
family, a woman of much personal beauty
and refinement, with .trong inclination,
toward literature and scholarship, which
were Inherited by her son. The latter
entered Hamilton college, from which ha
waa graduated In U4I. He Studied law
and waa admitted to' the bar in 18&4. He
began to practice at Syracuse, but tha
possibilities of tha west tempted him to
try hla fortunes there, and ho oama to
Omaha In October, lDH. Almost Immed
iately he became an important flgur In
the political and social Ufa of the com
munity, and his absorbing Interest in
Omaha and the state la attested by hla
volume, "Nebraska in 1SS7," published in
that year, and being the first hlatory of
the commonwealth and its metropolis. The
book was sent to the east and unques
tionably had a very stimulating influence
on the emigration to Nebraska,
, Though not a member, Mr. Woolworth
was prominent in the organisation of tha
first territorial legialatura, He waa one
of the first city attorneys of Omaha, serv
ing from 157 to 151. Ha waa a member of
the state constitutional convention of. 1171
and the basic law of Nebraska waa In a
largo meaaura his creation, in partnership
with other men, whose names . have be
come part of state history.
Slaglene. of Purposo-
A rule of Mr. Woolworth'a was stngioness
of purpose and concentrated devotion to
hla business. He resisted the attractions
of political life and. was not tempted to
public office, except a few exceptions with
regsrd to offices directly allied to hla pro
fession. Thus he was a city attorney, a
member of the constitutional convention
and In 173 democratic nominee for ehlef
Juatire of the supreme court. Tha atngia
public position he held not of a legal
character waa a aeat In the legialatura
during one session, and even here In the
making of lawa hla peculiar talenta had
Calls of aervlca In educational and reli
gious lines were never unheeded by Judge
Woolworth, and he was ona of tha first
regent, of the Omaha High school, a trus
tee of Racine college In Wisconsin and of
Brnwnell Hall at Omaha, tha Episcopalian
seminary for young women. He waa ad
mitted to tha 1'nlted State, suprems court
in ISA!. In 1ST! Racine college conferred
the degree of doctor of laws upon him;
in If "3 tha University of Nebraska gava
him the degree of doctor of humanities,
and he received the degree of doctor of
civil lawa from Trinity university at
Mora Famous la East Than West,
The fame of Mr. Woolworth was aa great.
If not greater, in tho oast thtn It was in
the west, and hla exceptional aldlltiea wore
keenly appreciated by the nxi.t noted
