He had given  lite order to use the machine guns 0n  tlie riotous soldiery in  the streets of  the Russian port, and this had     so  roused      the feeling of  the invsurrcc-  tioiiisls  that they  had  attached the  lommaiidant's house,   \yhich  was bom  barded    and several  members  of his  household   wounded.  A report      was  circulated     that  he had been killed,  and    R.   T.  Greener,   United States  consul  to   Vladivostok,   who had ar-  ii ed in Japan, says this repott was  caused by   the fact that the      com-  iiia"dant was spirited  away  from his  house m a coflm to escape these who  sought to   kill  him.    It  would  have  been certain death for  the command-  ant to have tried to reach the trans-  1 o! t from  his house.    The residence  was-surrounded'by rioters who .clammed for his life,  and suddenly sometime shouted:  "He  is dead."  A coffin  was secured by friends ;nl carried in  to  the house.    With  slow,  mournful  tread, his  friends carried him   in the  coffin, to Uie wharf, whence the catfiii  was     ta!:tn.     onboard    a transport  bound     for  Nagasaki, and not  untl  the  vessel   was some distance     from  the   iee-fiiled  port of Siberia did the  frightened   officer emerge from .     his  shroud.'     Tlie riot of January 25th  which resulted1, in- the ordei\ i>eing giv  en to use 'machine guns on the people  iit the streets:, was  caused by  the arrest of  Dr.  Langkofi'sky,  a surgeon,  who   sympathized   with   the railvond  men  in     their strike.   :*vJr.  Greener  saw  the commandant  in  Japan   and  was   .told      he was awaiting orders  from  St.  Petersburg.-  ly  in favor of the scheme,  and   will  willingly   close   their  establishments  at      the specified hour  on Thursdays  upon condition   that  the  rule  is" general.  This  is,   of couise,  ii������o*st  r-easora-  blc,  and  as stated in   these columns  last evening, no merchant' could     be  expected     to close if     an opi-oeition  tradesman  remained  open.    Howwer,  as  tlie movement appears to  be very  popular, there seems to. be every probability <jf     the plan -being adopted  shortly.   There are still  the views of  a few merchants to, ,lie ascertained ami  these gentlemen   will  be called  u] on  in   the course  of   the njxt  day       or  two.

The U.SS.

"The-top of  the Valencia  is     not  more than two feet below the surface  of   the water,"     said   Capt.   Tuttle.  "The mast and rigging are gone. The  hull is  badly  bro'neri  up. .

They  constitute neither a constitution or  a "bid of rights" for th& Russian  people.' 'Phey do create a popular  assembly but the privileges granted  are  so  hedged    'about      witu re  strictive conditions that they will  be rather more political in name  than in fuct. Nevertheless by the  terms of the manifesto, the Jfim-  peror himself is powerless to revoke  *what has now been given. This con  stitutes the great victory which the  people  have  won.     They  at hint  have an authorutive medium through which they con make, their  voice heard , and it is in this . ,a  struggle against prerogative and  privilege will be fought out. An  examination of the documents shew  "clearly that their purpose has been  to intrench the government, atjevery  point against the assaults of the pe<������  pie. The council of the Empire of  the upper chamber as rc-orgttini/.ed  provides  for   the  election   of only,  half   the  members,   and  these        are  chosen  by  the' nobility,   clergy,   zein-  stvos   and  commercial  interests       :-.o  that   with     the  other half     directly  nominated   by the crown    the     government, can always interpose a decision  of  the" council     as  a       buffer  between     it  and  the   represent ������1 ives [  of the  people     in   the  Douiun,  lower house.     Besides,  certain  poitant      questions   notable   uvalfes-  a������i-o     in   oflice     for .members   of the  council   of the  F.mpiie,   the    cabinet,  the  provincial  general  governors  and  other functionaries     of the.       govern  incut   lmddmg     to the  tluec highest  ian!.s      in   the       Hussion   highauhv  ate excluded    cntirolj    fi om  the   |tu-  isdiction  of the   parliament  and  sir������  consigned to -commissions    as   they  are  called of council of the  Empire.  But the composition     of such     commissions    is restricted.   to the members  appointed ,. by,  the      Emperor.  Othei   questions   which     will  g<o    to  similar commissions     are those     .e-  lating    to  the  reports'   of    the  Mm-  isle1-  of, Finance    on the cash in the  treasury , and savings     bank        reports   , on  the  state  pawn  shop  con  teired by the crown.     These are all  subjects  which     the     representative's  of the  people      will probably     want  to  inquire  into.     The  main   weapon  retained    by  the  Emperor     is      his  power., to'- dissolve'parliament at will  This coupled  with the    government's  ability      to   promulgate    Temporary  laws leaves  the government     master  of  the  situation     whenever   it   cares  to  employ this  means     of     ridding  itself  of' parliament     when the    latter  hus\grown.
