ST. PETERSBURG, Juno 18. The constl
(Utlonal democrats seem almost ready to
throw their lot with the revolutionist.
The popular agitation la o great that at a
caucus lasting three morning the ques
tion of changing the party's tactics and
abandoning any further attempt to post
pone an open rupture with tho government
was seriously donated. MM. Rodltchelt
and Naboukoff, leaders of the constitutional
democrat In the lower house, led the radi
cal wing, urging the absolute necessity of
krpplng pace with the revolutionary move
ment and Insisting that unless they moved
forward to battle Immediately they would
bo overwhelmed and left stranded. Prof.
Mllukoft, M. Vlnaver and others counseled
caution, saying It was not yet time to
bend to the storm, but the radicals were
in the majority.
It was learned today that the constitu
tional democrats, in caucus, have definitely
decided to refuse to obey the order to take
a recess In case the government ventures
on this step.
Cabinet May Back Down.
A rumor waa current in the lobbies of
tho house today that tho cabinet had de
cided, In view of tho unanimous opposition
of the house, not to attempt ' to declare
a recess. '
During the afternoon a project of the
order of proponed legislation was drawn
up by Mm. Peirunkevltch, Vlnaver and
othets and wns presented' to the house.
Outwardly It waa not Important, but It pro-
vld.s for a continuance of the work of the
honee Interruptedly throughout tho summer.
The project ' will not bo considered to
Twenty-six Interpellations were presented

They claim that the constitutional demo
crats cannot hope to keep step with the
advanced radicals, who, at meeting held
In .he suburbs of Bt. Petersburg last night,
not only condemned the lower house of
Parliament and characterised the constitu
tional democrata as traitors, but even de
nounced the Group of Toil. M. Albidln
was hissed because he tried to explain the
absurdity of the contention that the house
must demand that the emperor summon a
conatltuent assembly. The meeting re
fused to listen to his statement that the
government could not be asked to sign Its
own death warrant. Constitutional assem
blies, he said, were constituted and not
summoned by the government. The orators
at the meetings glorified the coming dic
tatorship of tho proletariat tyid cheered
the cries of "Down with the government
and the middle classes."
Avrerlaa Debate at an End.
The long debate on the agrarian question
was ended at this morning's session of
th lower house with a strong speech
by Michael Stakovlch of Orel, In which
he virtually deulared that the government
must recognise the principle of the partial
expropriation of private land holdings In
order to satisfy the peasants, but he ap
pealed for peaceful co-operation between
the house and government In arranging a
settlement of this great question. It was
then decided to send the agrarian question
to a commission, and after recess the
question of the composition of the com
mission was considered.
Although the members In the lobbies of
the house talked of little except the
Bialstok massacre and the Increasing grav
ity of the situation, the Bialystok affair
waa not broached in Parliament during
the morning session, the members pre
fer! ng to await the report of the commis
sion of Inquiry sent to the scene to' In
vestigate and report upon the massscre.
The slse of the commission which will
be elected tomorrow was fixed after tho
debate at ninety-nine, or eleven more than
originally planned. The house thereupon
turned to the discussion of the bill pro
viding for the abolition of all special class
privileges and religious and national re
striction affecting civil rights.
Tho bakeries continue closed today, th
strikers threatening to wreck the shops
whore attempts were made to bake bread.
Utile hardship, however, has thus far re
sulted. The lower classes were warned
and supplied themselves with black bread
Witt of Strike Spreads.
Th strike of the bakers Is to he fol
lowed In a few days by a butchers' strike.
The news from the Interior shows that
th wave of strikes la spreading, but It Is
too early to tell whether thl movement,
which seems more spontaneous than organ
ised, will precipitate a crisis. Now strikes
re reported at Yekaterlnoslav. at Raratoff
and at the collieries of Rakmuth.
The usual number of robberies Is re
ported today, emphasising th growing law
lessness and anarchy In the country. There
have been two murderous train robberies
in tho Caucasus and three stage roaches
wore held up In Poland. A case of arms
and 600 t ort ridge have been confiscated at
Riga on an Incoming steamer.
The government seems to fear a repeti
tion of the November mutiny at Cronstadt
fortres. where the aalkirs and marine and
th soldier and workmen are reported to
be extremely turbulent. -Two infantry regt
mesis have been ' hastily dispatched to
Cronatadt from Kraanoy ' delo, and two
batteries of artillery of the guard and two
' acfclne gun battexlta have been seat there.

ROBINSON'S SHOW IN THE RAIN
Great Ctreoa Gives Performance In
Spite of the Intoward
Governor John 8. Robinson, owner of
Robinson's circus, and his son, John U.
Robinson, manager of the big enterprise,
representing old age and youth, the spring
and winter of circus life, In a conversation
with a Bee reporter last night said In sub

protection of and attention shown patrons,
and In the clever and sensational circus
performance. There were over 100 minor
acts, all meritorious, and four big thrillers.
The circus was put on In three rings, on an
elevated stage, on hippodrome track, and
In mid-air' arena. Mud was everywhere
and when a performer finished, he or she
looked like a person made of real clay
rather than of flesh and blood. Magnificent
costumes were simply ruined, but to keep
faith with the public this had to be.
It was noticeable, and freely commented
upon, that the Robinson circus Is free of
graft. Not a game of chance or gambling

Is big and good.

CINCINNATI. O., June lS.-Jonn M.
Paulson, governor of Ohio, died at his
home In MHford. a suburb of this city,
at 4 .20 o'clock this afternoon. He passed
a good night and there was no report of
any serious change during the day. Dur
ing the afternoon the news from his home
was considered favorable and the announce
ment of death came without warning.
That the death of the governor was en
tirely unexpected was evident when it Is
remembered that In a contest over the
requisition of Ellsworth Liverpool In the
courts In this city- today both of the gov
ernor's physicians appeared to testify that
his condition was such that he was able
to transact official business. His private
secretary, L. B. Houck. also testified to his
good condition, explaining that he had re
cently gone over much business with him.
Although there haa been for months an
expressed fear that Governor Pattison
would not be able to return to his office
at Columbus, the cheerful statements from
his sick room tended to create a belief
that any fatal outcome of his prolonged
sickness would be long deferred.

Not at any time a man of powerful

the responsibilities of his office In a some
what weakened condition, the strain of the
political campaign having so worn on him
that. a trip to the south was taken In No
vember and December In the hope of
gaining his health. However,' when he re
turned he was still weak, and under the
advice of bis physician his part of the
inauguration ceremonies was gone through
with the utmost care. A glass covering
was provided for the reviewing stand
that he might be protected from the
stormy January winds, and through that
he reviewed one of the most elaborate
parade that has ever graced the Inaugu
ration of any Ohio governor. He then
went to his home from which he only
emerged for a few short walks until
brought to this city on a special train
on the night of April E. He continued to
oversee the work of his office and through
his private secretary, Louis B. Houck, who
has been his running mate on the demo
cratlc ticket, transacted considerable pub
lie business, even when unable to arise
from his bed. As soon as his condition
permitted he was brought to Cincinnati,
spending several weeks In Christ hospital,
and a week ago be was brought to his
country borne at MUlford. He has been
reported as steadily gaining since then,
although a report waa current last week
that he had suffered a relapse.

poses In order to prevent the destruction

Experiments With Neve Grass.
Early In the winter Judge Norris took
up with the Agricultural department the
subject of experimenting with Turklstan
alfalfa, and as a result of his repeated
visits to the department two places In
his district were selected In Furnas and
Chase counties. He selected these counties
as representing the extent of the alfalfa
xone. The Furnas county planting will
be In charge of C. M. Llewelyn of Beaver
City. Mr. Llewelyn was formerly a lec
turer In the Agricultural department at
the State university, and last year was
connected with the State Agricultural Col
lege of Maryland. The second experiment

views of the president. "What I have
contended for all the time." said Mr. Hau
gen, "and shall continue to fight for. Is
enough money to assure full and thorough
Inspection through all stages of the meat
business. If the government Is to pay the
bill, then I walnt the appropriation made
permanent so as to guarantee that the
good work shall go right along. In addi
tion to that. In event there Is not enough
money, the secretary of agriculture shall
have authority and power to put a tax on
each head of stock killed. That will pro

RATE HEARINGIN MISSOURI
Oil Dealer "aye Freight Tariffs Are
Too Hlh and Discriminate
KANSAS CITT, June 18.-E. M. Wllholt,
an Independent oil dealer of Springfield.
Mo., was the principal wltnss today be
fore the Missouri Board of Railroad and
Warehouse Commissioners, which Is hold
ing a rate Inquiry In this city. Mr. Wll
holt is one of a number of shippers who
have filed complaints with the commis
sioners, asserting that freight rates arc
higher In Missouri than In neighboring
states, and a reduction Is asked for.
Mr. Wllholt testified that, not only was
the whole table of rates for all shipments
in Missouri too high, but that the
Standard OH company is favored to the
Injury of the Independent shipper.
"Under the present rate," said the wit
ness, "it costs me IS cents per hundred
weight to ship oil from St. lunula to Bprtng
field, 'Mo., aiid the ,ra"te to the Standard"
from Chicago to St.' Louls, a much greater
distance, Is only 5 cents. I cannot get
oil In Chicago because there Is no inde
pendent refinery there, so that I, along
with Independent Jobbers, must ship from
less favored points, making the oil laid
down from Springfield cost us much more
to transport than It costs the Standard."
Mr. Wtlholt's testimony was brought out
by C. D. Chamberlain, secretary of the
National Petroleum association of Cleve
land, who questioned him in the interest
of the complainants.

MEAT BILL IS READY
Home Committee Revises k'euure to Uttt
the President' Wiihea.
COMPLETE ACCORD ' ON ALL POINTS
Speaker Cannon Represents the Committee
in White Home Oonferenoe.
GOVERNMENT WILL PAY INSPECTORS
FroTiaion for Court Review Is Stricken
from the Bill,
LABELS WILL NOT BEAR ANY DATES
Meaaare Practically Complete Wlta
Committee Adjoaraed and It Will
Probably Be Seat to
WASHINGTON, June IS. The basis of
a complete argeement on the meat lnepeo
tion legislation between President lloose
velt and the house committee on agri
culture was arrived at today at the Whl'e
Houae. Speaker Cannon represented the
committee In this Instance and subse
quently spent some time explaining (tie
situation to the committee In Its room it
the capltol. The bill wss practically com
pleted when the committee adjourned to
day. It will authorise an annual appropiia
tion of $37,000,000 to pay the cost of In
spection and will contain no provision for
the levy of an assessment to make up any
deficiency In the amount available for this
work, as suggested by Mr. Cowan, repre
senting the Texas cattle growers and
later urged by the president. The court
review provision will not be contained (a
the measure. This action meets the sug
gestion of the president. The words "In
the Judgment of the secretary of agricul
ture" will not be Inserted as suggested
by the president and this conclusion now
meets Mr. Roosevelt's approval.
The section waiving the civil servtce
law for one year in the selection of In
spectors will go out of the provision, also
one of the president' recommendations.
o Date on iJibel.
There Is to be no date on the label of
the parking of meat food products. la
this the president yields to the committee.
The language which gives Inspectors the
right to enter the packing plants at all
times Is amplified by the words "whether
the same be In operation or not."
With these changes mode the president
has Indicated his entire satisfaction with
the measure which waa reported from the
committee aa a substitute for the Bever
ldge amendment and was today recommit
ted to the committee that the change
might be made.
Ordinarily Speaker Cannon does not take
such active part In legislation as he has
in the present instance. It has been ex
plained, however, that he regards th
passsge of an adequate meat Inspection bill,
with all possible speed, as vitally essential
to the welfare of tnany Important Indus
trie throughout the country.
Objection to Head Tax. -
The objection which waa urged to the.
president aa a reason why he should not
Insist on giving authority to the secretary
of agriculture to levy tax to make up any
deficiency waa the constitutional provision
that congress shall levy all taxes. A head
tax on animals, It was pointed out, would
be an exceedingly unequal one, aa the
value of a fin beef steer would be much
greater than a steer of Inferior weight and
condition, yet the tax would have to be
the same. The same condition would pre
vail as to all other animals killed for food.
The guarantee of the constitution of
every man's right to have his grlevancea
heard before a court waa also presented to
the president forcefully as to why tho de
cision of the secretary of agriculture should
not be made final, as would be the case should
the words "in the discretion of the secre
tary of agriculture'1 be Inserted through
out the measure. In this argument, it is
said, the president acquiesced.
It Is probable that the agricultural bill
will be sent to conference without delay.

Canned Food for Soldiers Mast Bo
Stamped) with Date.
LONDON, June 18. Chicago meat again
formed the main subject of questions In
the House of Commons today. Mr. Hicks
Beach, conservative, aon . of , the former
chancellor of the exchequer, asked War
Secretary Haldana what quantity of Chi
cago canned meat was supplied to the
troops In South Africa during the late war
and what proportion of enteric death
ought more properly to have been described
as due to ptomaine poisoning. The secre
tary replied that rather more than half
tho canned meat supplied to the British
troops in South Africa during the late war
came from the United States. He could not
say how much of this came from Chicago.
The War office knew nothing of any cases
of enteric fever which could be classed as
ptomaine poisoning. '
Mr. Lee (liberal) wanted to know whether.
In view of the fact that the committee on
agriculture 'of the United State houae of
representatives had omitted in drawing up
the meat Inspection bill to stipulate that the
packers atamp the date of manufacture
of each article of food sold, th War office
would not Issue an army order requiring
every can of -meat supplied to the army to
be plainly stamped with the date of manu
facture. The secretary reassured Mr. Lee,
Informing him that it bad long ben a con
dition of the ordinary War office contract a
that tins of preserved food must have the
date of manufacture stamped visibly inside

which American meat was prepared, the

meat, tinned or otherwise. Inspected on ar
