The general opinion Is that the manifesto ropresants a victory for Minister Svla-topolk-Mirsky and tho Conservative Lib erals 'ovr M. Pobodlenostseff, and prac tically places the strong combination of 3kC Wltte and Svlatopolk-Mirsky behind the government's programme. The vagueness in which the reforms are out lined" gives possibilities of expansion or limitation, according to their ideas. "With a man of M. Witte's domination and force at the head of the committee of Ministers, the general belief is that he will control In the end. Those allied with- the Zemstvolsts ex press th Intention of continuing with thorn despite the government's note of warning. They believe that the dissimi larity of the two documents will enable them to continue the light on the ground that tho manifesto Is In a conciliatory spirit and represents the views of the Emperor, and that tho government note is the work of the bureaucracy. The response of tho people generally and of the extreme Liberals and revo lutionaries to the government's action Is awaited with Intense interest. No one lmaginos that any of these classes will be satisfied, but upon the course they have elected to pursue will depend the question of a possible crisis in the near future. PROGRAMME IS BROAD. Ukase Has Not Fully Pleased EX- tremists of Both Parties.. ST. PETERSBURG. Dec 27. While Em peror, Nicholas' manifesto on Russian ra iorms, coupled with the government note cf warning on the same subject, leaves no doubt that It is the firm Intention of th Emperor to maintain unimpaired the utile cratio principle which no observer hero ever Imagined he would relinquish, not yield to the .umstoylsts' demand for a national legislature, the programme , of reforms outlined: is a. "broad one, and- if it had not been preceded by the ag' tat Ion of the" last month probably wj'i'.d have b-xn accepted with universal acclaim In Rutwta as extremely iloc-nl.

T;he extremists, of course, are not satisfied, and many of tho moderate liberals are disappointed. The govern ment note threatening drastic meas ures In the event of a continuation of the violation agitation, which the gov ernment considered necessary in order to put a stop to the existing condi tlon, is resented deeply by them, and it Is feared will inflame, rather than allay, the present agitation. Harsh measures, it Is understood, will be avoided," and the government expects that the nature of the reforms offered will gradually draw to its support all except the extreme radicals. Fully as Important as the govern ment's response to the Zemstvolsts Is tho position In which M. Wltte la placed by confiding the reforms to tho committee of Ministers, of which he Is president. The old finance minister becomes the man of the hour, confirm injr the reports that he is again in high Imperial favor. Moreover, this body. tho duties of which heretofore have been purely perfunctory, are raised 0 thte-.highcst dignity, and institute for tho first time a species of MInistdrlal responsibility which is apt to make the committee 01 Ministers a real Cabinet. in addition to the Ministers, six Grand Dukes are meinfiers of the com jnittee: As the imperial manifesto di rects the commltteo to ascertain 'the best method" of carrying tho rerorms Into effect, somo papers, notably the Russ. find In these words that the com mlttec may call In Zemstvo represen tatives. WARNED BY GOVERNMENT. Russian Insurrectionists Must Keep the Peace. ST. PETERSBURG. Dec 27. The fol lowing communication was issued by the government early this morning: "In the Autumn of this year there was a meeting In St. Petersburg of several Zemstvos of the various governments. who expressed a series of desires con cerning what are. In their ODlnion. in dispensable reforms In the different gov ernments of the empire. These desires wore- maae tne suojects of action by m em dots 01 various other assemblies wnicn met for the purpose, and also. Knowing uio provisions or jaw, were con yaaerea ac ine aen Derations of certain Councils and Zcmstvos. Thus, 1)y the a ci ion or people who endeavored to In troduce discord into public and state life. excitement arose In the minds pf certain xsecuons ot society, chiefly among Inmres slonable youths. Ia certain towns of the empire there occurred a series of noisy meeunge, wnicn acroancea the presenta tion to the government of certain de mands which were- inadmissible. In .the face of the sacred foundations of the laws of the empire and tho indestructible elements wnicn iona tho government. These sections of the public made street demonstrations in bands and openly re sisted the. police authorities. "Such movements against the existing order or the government which have fallen adversely, upon the bulk of the Russian- people, who are loyal to the evcfla'stlng ' foundations of the existing government, gave to the excitement above referred to an undeserved Import ance of & general tendency. The Russian, people Involved in this movement, for-, getfut of the grievous year which has fallen to the lot of Ruasia, blinded by chimerical" hopes of profits which they might expect from a radical change In the ancient foundations of the Russian state and life, and not knowing what they were doing, acted to the advantage not of the--country, but of Its enemies. "Now the duty of the government' Is to preserve order In the sjate and protect the public confidence" frortf all change In the tree course of -Internal life., There fore -any destruction of order and peace, and all meetings of an anti-government character, must and .will be stopped by all legal means at the disposition of, the authorities, and those concerned in those disorders, especially persons employed in the government service, will be held re sponsible. "Zemstvo and town statutes and every form or . institution and company must" not go -beyond -the limits ' provided for them, and must not concern .themselves in the questions the consideration of which they have no legal authority. Pres idents ol "public meetings. w.hp. allow con sideration to take place of .matters not in their - province, of questions of . gen eral government, are liable under the ex- nvAoiSitTtSi rests upon them, must for their part in troduce- the- necessary calming enect on public lie, which has deviated In recent times from .Its proper course." VOTE TOR SCHOOLHOUSES. Moscow Government Marks Birth of Czar's Son. 3lbS"CQ"W, Dec 27.The Zemstvo Con gress of tho Moscow. government opened today. Prince Trubetskoi,- the ..president. In "his opening , address, dwelt upon the serious condition of Russia and the re grettable war with Japan, the end of which, could, not-be anticipated in the near future, as well as the grave economical crisis through which the country', is 'pass ing, and the Internal disorganization of tho empire. All this, he said, lay as a heavy yoke on the Russian people,' .and produced the condition of strong rfervous excitement under which it labored. Prince Trubetzkol then proposed the adoption and forwarding to Emperor Nicholas of a resolution announcing that to commemorate the birth "of tho Czare vitch, the Zemstvo had set aside the cap ital sum of $150,000. to 2e devoted to the construction of new school buildings, and that the Emperor should be asked to name the new fund after his son, Alexis. Continuing, Prince Trubetzkol declared that Minister of the Interior Sviatopolk Mlrsky's assurance of confidence in the people had given tho Zemstvo new power to serve the state. The Zemstvo had firm confidence In the Emperor. They believed the happy day was nigh when,' through the imperial will, tho present bureaucratic regime, which had estranged the supreme power from the people, would be changed; the day on which the Emperor would, summon freely elected representatives of tho people to partici pate In legislation, -through whose co operation the imperial power and great ness of the throno would be strengthened and the triumphant development of the fatherland assured. The development, the Prince said, was dependent upon "the immutability of the principles of the law, the .inviolability of persons, and equality of rights for all citizens, as well as free dom of speech and laith, which -would bring them a strengthening of tho close and strong ties between the throne and the people, and enable them to co-operate for the good of the fatherland." The address was adopted by a majority of the votes in the congress. DAWN OF A BETTER DAY. 1 Imperial Ukase Meets With Much Favor .in Papers. ST. PETERSBURG. Deo. 27.

Tho theory that the woman murdered on Cutler Mountain, near this city, was Mrs. Bessie Kemtcr Bouton, formerjy of Syracuse, N. Y., is still regarded by the police here as the strongest yet advanced. The Butte, Mont, clew that tho woman may have been Mrs. W. J. Bodno, of that place, is discredited by tho statement that Mrs. Bodno had had her dental work dono recently.

Y., and that her maiden mime was Kemter. Clerk Doty, of the Albany, In speaking of the Boutons., said: "Bouton said they, were from New Or- leans, and they, registered from there. The description of the murdered woman fits well with Mrs. Bouton, there being no real points of dissimilarity that I can now detect During their stay at tho Albany Mrs. Bouton told me her mother was sick and that she must go back to Syracuse. Ho objected, and they quar reled, but finally they compromised by sending a package to Syracuse." f Dr. Sherman Williams prescribed . for both the Boutons, while they were at the Albany.

In face of this difficulty, Mr. Jerome Is confident that he will soon have a com plete case against at least three men, and he Is hopeful that his Investigation will lead him not only to the Instruments of the alleged conspiracy, but to the men whose Interests made It vitally necessary that the conspiracy should be carried out aa the District Attorney believes It was planned.
