St. Petersburg, April 20. Tho polit
ical situation has grown threatening.
Tho publication yesterday of tho now
draft of the "fundamental law" or
"constitution" of Russia has aroused a
storm of indignation, and amidst tho
present great distrust of tho govern
mont's motives has furnished Just the
stimulus needed to solidify tho entire
opposition in Parliament. The Recti
insists that with the realization of tho
new Rurslan loan, and nnder tho falsa
conviction that tho revolution is sup
pressed, the government has not hesi
tated again to show tho cloven hoof,
not even masking its Intention to dis
solve Parliament, if it is found to be
troubleeomo.
M. Brlanchaninoff, In tho fslovo, calls
tlio draft of tho "fundamental law" a
"mockory" which will bo resentod by
every honest man, bo ho a membor of
tho "Black Hundred" or a Social
Revolutionist, adding that "such a
mixturo of lies and falso lode on tho
eve of tho assembling of tho roal mas
ters of the country can only tend to
push tho pooplo to n fresh revolution
with its attending conflicts and anar
chy. Tho existing rcgluio Booms fated
to go down in blood."
Tho really dangerous cloment in tho
situation, howovor, is not in tho atti
tude of tho Liberals but in tho possi
bility of another upheaval from below
at tho very moment when the intellect
ual forces of the country, have been
unitod. For some time the Social
Democrats and other proletariat orga
nizations have-been trying to arrange a
general uprising to coincide with the
coavoeatlon of Parliament, but appa
rently they were making no headway.
Now. however, a great movement
among the Idle workmen of tho capital.
wno number 42,000, has come to the
surfaco, and thoro is more than a sun
position that this movement Is simply
tho cover for a real uprising which is
being organized behind it.
Meetings of mon out of work held In
tho suburbs during tho list few nights
wero attended by orators of the Social
Democratic patty. A council of mon
out of work has also sprung into exist
ence Iiko tlio famous Workmen's Coun
cil which directed the big strike of last
fall. Proclamations havo beon Inued
railing upon all workmen to support
tho men out of work, who domaud that
the city within a week shall put them
to work upon tho construction of now
street railroads nnd bridges, for which
$-1,000,000 has been appropriated. ""

riblo heat uproar thomsolvos among
tho dismantled ruins rb nroof of thin.
Tlio worst that happened to tho modern
buildings waB a "sat-aim-" from thn
earthquake. Modorn architectural
skill cannot ovorcomo thin, but It ran
minimlzo tho loss. Undoubtedly tho
business centor of tho city, at least,
will be built up according to plans that
will make it perfectly safe, como what
may.
Thote is a steady exodus from San
Francisco now, and it will continue.
Thousands are thoroughly frightened,
and ovory littlo window shaker that oc
curs striken terror into their tnnl.
Bnt most of tho peopio will havo their
nerve back within a week and then
nothing will bo heard but talk of up
building tho elty.
Tho Monadnock building, next to
tho Palace Hotel, will bo fitted up
shortly for efllcos, and sovoral unfinish
ed skyscrapers will bo completed In tho
midst of tho desolation. Ti.roe months
from now thoro will bo tho greatest
building boom tho city has ovor known.
Wrecking work has begun. Tlio streots

Ban Francisco, April 20. Gradually

tho work of succoring the homoless and
foodies thousands of Ban Frnncisconud
tomorrow tho representatives of the
United Htates Army will havo charge

development resulted from the meeting
of the executive committee today and
tho work will be turned ovor to the
United States Quartermaster of this
department, who will establish a com
plete system of issuing rations at all of
the 58 stations throughout the city.
This waB a day of optimistic reports
from all sides, "Conditions improv
ing," was the happy expression from
those who had charge of the duties of
caring for their less fortunate towns
men during the last few days. In fact
the moot important duty will hereafter
bo performed by the United States
Army, that of distributing the food and
supplies which havo been donated most
lavishly by the people. The citizens of
San Francisco have turned their atten
tion to tho details cf tho reconstruction
of their business.

"South of Market street wero tho
cheap lodging houses, nnd mnny of

There is littlo chanco that half of thn
inmates nf the collapsed buildings had
opportunity to escapo. This is also
true nf Chinatown.
"Shortly after tho earthauako. sol
dlers and police, so I have boeu told,
hurled bodies found along tho water
front. I havo received no official ro
port nf these,
"Tho total number of dead will un
doubtedly reach, if it dees not exceed,
1,000."
