To  have accepted such conditions, Unconstitutional Democrats declare,  would, have made them guilty of tro  ason, would have entirely destroyed  their prestige in i-he country and  have only angered Instead of tramjju-  ili/r-d  the   people.  The Constitutional Democrats intend to stand by I heir guns and lie  lieve the government must shortly  accei'it their terms. The Rech, organ  of the Constitutional llemocrnts.  thinks that victory is not far distant.  SI reel demons! rat ions and rioting  are becoming more frequent in Moscow and St. Petersburg, which is regarded ns being a bad sign.

Some additional details of thc mutiny of the Seventh Cavalry at Tan'i-'  bvo show that boUi tbe infantry  and the Cossacks sent to subdue the  mutineers refused to (ire on them.  Ihe infantry bayoneting the officer  who gave (he command. Only a detachment ol" dragoons, who, is said,  had been plied with liquor, attacked  Ihe mutineers. The officers of the'  .'���������eventh fired on their own men. Thb  number of killed or wounded has not,  been established.
