ST. I ETETRSBURO, July l.-No definite
statement with reference to the retirement
of the Ooremykln cabinet was forthcom
ing today. Emperor Nicholas apparently
Is encountering trouble In finding a man
to whom to entrust the reins of power and
effecting an understanding with the liberal
groups of Parliament.
The constitutional democratic parliamen
tary committer met this morning behind
closed doors to discuss tactics under the
, new situation. The Associated Press was
Informed after the meeting that the com
mittee adhered to Its former decision that
nothing less than a fully responsible cab
inet will be acceptable and that constitu
tional democrats will refuse to take port
folios In any mixed ministry. The leaders
scarcely expect that these terms will be
accepted at present. Indeed, they have
alight derire to shoulder the responsibility
of government when the country ap
parently Is on the verge of a series of out
breaks and disorders. Their present plan
la to adopt towards any new ministry the
aame tactics they have followed In the
past, the acceptance of what Is good In
the policy tl the government and unsparing
Criticism where that policy does not square
with their IdeB. The Immediate vote of a
lack of confidence Is probable.
It la Stated that Minister of the Interior
Btolypln and Minister of Finance Kolov

Parliament, probably tomorrow, a request
for an appropriation of JfAono.onn for famine
relief, one-half of which will be for dls
trlbutlon during the current year and the
remaining one-half next year. The mln
laters reject Parliament's suggestion that
relief be conducted through the aemstvo
and other local bodies, declaring that the
organisation of these bodies Is Insufficient
and th.t only the administration is capable
of efficient work.

KANSAS CITY HAS DRY TIME

Klssonrl Side of the
KANSAS CITY. July 1. For the first
time in their existence, perhaps, all sa
loons In both the Kansas Cltys were closed
tight today. On the Missouri side It was
the usual Sunday closing that has been
carried on for months past by order, of
Governor Folk. On the Kansas side, where
the prohibition law has been openly vlo
lated for years, the closing was the re
suit of Governor Hoch's campaign to stop
the sale of liquor not only on the Sabbath
but on every other day In the week. Since
the Sunday closing order has been in ef
fect on the Missouri side 30.000 have weekly
gone to the Kansas side for relief, but
today none was Ip sight. The lid was not
only on In Kansas, but It was padlocked.

General Trlckett had padlocks placed on
the doors of all Joint.
