the constitutional democrats did all they

the appearance of Parliament entering
upon a revolutionary role. During th de

address did not summon the people to sup

uprising, It adjured them to remain quiet.
Nevertheless, they were forced, owing to
dissensions n their own ranks, to eliminate
a declaration In favor of th principle of
payment for expropriated land, thus In a
measure confirming the Idea prevalent
among the peasantry that the confiscation
of the land would be for their benefit, pur

The evident desire of th constitutional
democrats to extract the teeth from ths
address drove the members of the group

intention of Issuing their proclamation,
' This 'Is not an unmixed evil, aa It might
. open the door to a final opportunity for
an agreement between th constitutional
democrats and the government. If this
happens Immedlstely the Indications are
that the constitutional democrats as a
party will go to pieces, the radical wing
going over to the left and the conservative
wing dissppesrlng among the scattered ele

C. D. Chamberlain, secretary of th Na

of the evidence to the board.
"We are pleased with the manner In
which our case has been laid before the
commissioners," said Mr. Chamberlain,
"but I waa anxious to Impress upon them
one or two points that may not be entirely
clear. I wished particularly to bring out
the fact that the railroads refuse to make
a uniform rate for equal distances In dif

rate for a certain distance In one locality
and or the same distance In another the
rate may be nearly again as much. Ti e
commissioners, I understand, have held that
the railroads have a right to do this,
but I contend It Is an infringement of the
law. The matter was mentioned to Rush

may arise. Circulars have been posted In

The circulars are In substance:

they will be ' driven into the sea.
Continuing, the circular says:
The principal industries and business of

EIGHT-HOUR LAW A POSER
Many ttaeatloas Maat Bo Decided
Before Its fleope Caa Be
WASHINGTON, July 20. The executive
officer of the various departments have al
ready found themselves confronted with
much difficulty In the application of th
president's order to report violations of the
eight-hour law by government contractors.
The subject Is a very complex one and it
Is apparent that the attorney general will
be called upon to pass many opinions on
the application of law to the different
classes of employes.
The question has been raised as to
whether the decision affects work on naval
vessels In private yards. The contractor
Insist the law docs not operate outside of
a government reservation and that the
ship Is their own property until It Is turned
over to the government. The Navy de
partment officials appear to believe that as
the government pays installments of money
for the ship as the work progresses upon
them It Is the actual owner of the vessels.
This matter Is so Important that a test case
Is certain to follow.
