Czar Will Recognize Right of
People to Rule.
Democrats Abandon Idea of Repub
lic Xation Settles Down to Elec
tion and Fear of Dicta
tor Passes Away.
ST. PETERSBURG, Jan. 23. The at
titude of the Russian people toward,
the monarchy, showing that the peas
ant as well as the soldier would be
quick to resent anything directed
against the person of the -Little
Father." has been recognized by the
Constitutional Democratic convention
now in session here, which today, in
spite of the objections'of many Repub
lican delegates, incorporated in its
platform a clause declaring that "Rus
sia is a constitutional parliamentary
A change in the historic and funda
mental definition of Russian society is
recognized as necessary in the govern
ment camp also and the result of min
isterial conferences on the subject

n manifesto eliminating the first ar
ticle of Russia's fundamental laws,
namely, "the Emperor's power is au
tocratic and unlimited." doing away
with the word "unlimited," and there
by recognizing the existence of the
rights of the National Assembly.
The peaceful passage of the dreaded
"Red Sunday" anniversary yesterday,
the apparent impotency of the active
revolutionists and Initiation of con
structive labors by all the political
factions taking part in the electoral
campaign, have greatly encouraged the
government. Premier "Witte is confi
dent of his ability to restore order and
weather the storm until the convoca
tion of the National Assembly. The
nightmare of a dictatorship is no
longer dreaded by even the most pessi
mistic. The chief apprehension is the
financial situation.
American .Manufacturer Foresees
Troublous Times for Empire.
MOSCOW, Jan. 23. Alexander Barry,
naturalized American who is among the
prominent manufacturers of Moscow.
takes an exceedingly gloomy view of the.
situation here. Mr. Barry employs from
2000 to 3000 men, and unquestionably has
a more profound knowledge of Russian
conditions than any American in the em
pire. Ho is convinced that the Russian
people arc not ripe for a full constltu
tional regime.
"The opening of tne flood gates of agita
tion by the publication of the imperial re-
form manifesto only serves to demoralize
a portion of the masses who had already
been disturbed by the .agitators," he de
clared in an Interview today. Continuing,
Mr. Barry said:
"The ignorant masses really have none
of the political aspirations attributed to
them by the agitators, but owing to their
poverty, they are easy prey to the ap
peals for liberty, which for them means
license. That they neither understand
nor care for true political rights is shown
by the fact that in Moscow less than 10
per cent, and in the provinces not over 2
per cent of the qualified voters will regis
ter. Consequently it can be taken for
granted that the National Assembly will
be overwhelmingly conservative, and will
become an institution to register the de
crees of the government.
"This in turn is sure to drive into the
camp of the extremists the Liberals, intel
lectual classes and the visionary, imprac
ticable class, with ill-digested political
Ideals, who throughout the crisis and
since the issuance of the reform manifesto
have stood idly by exercising no influence
of restraint. The revolutionary agitation
will then take on a more dangerous phase.
"Up to the present time it has been a.
mistake to Imagine that the revolu
tionary ideas had taken deep root in
the army. The agitation has been
cleverly manipulated to give it that ap
pearance. Like benzine rubbed on the
surface, it is very Inflammable, but
soon evaporates if not set fire. But
agitators with matches are every
where. "Fifty per cent of the workmen in
the cities of Russia -will bo out of
work in 190G. Impoverished, embit
tered and unemployed, they wil -wander
back to their villages and find will
ing ears among the hungry peasants
for the doctrines of Socialism and the
division of property, and crime and
lawlessness will flourish. All the con
ditions will make for d;peration and
anarchy, in which a revival of the rev
olutionary agitation will find the host
opportunity. i
"The people are incapable 'in their
state of culture of a gradual evolution
to a stable, popular regime. It is Im
possible to lead them to that end. Rus
sia will be confronted either by ex
cesses of power or excess of liberty.
There Is no middle way."

Tiff Between Mitchell and Iewls
Disturbs Convention.
INDIANAPOLIS. Jan. 23. The United
Mfneworkers of America today began
consideration of the report of the scale
committee by sections.
The sections demanding a general ad
vance of 12 per cent over the scale, de
manding a run of mine basis, demanding
a differential of 7 cents between pick and
machine mined coal, demanding a uniform
day wage scale and demanding that all
yardage and deadwood be advanced 12
per cent, were adopted by the convention.
The demand that no boy under 16 years of
age shall be employed in or about tho
mine was taken up. It caused a pro
longed debate.
An amendment providing that it be de
manded that three anthracite districts be
admitted to the joint conference was de
The convention adopted the report of
the scale committee with practically no
The discussion" of the proposition to In
dorse the plans of the anthracite miners
caused a clash between President Mitchell
and Vice-President Lwis. Considerable
feeling was shown. Air. Lewis made the
statement from the floor that he thought
a full explanation of the anthracite situa
tion should be made by the president.
He said ho knew nothing except what he
liad. read in newspapers. President
Mitchell replied that he knew no law re
quiring a president to report to a vice-
president, and added:
I did not know until yesterday of the
success of the movement to secure a con
ference with the anthracite operators", and
1 do not know what demands the anthra
cite miners committee will make. The
demands have not been formulated."
Mr. Lewis replied that he thought he
was worthy to be taken Into the confi
dence of the organization, when the con
vention moved that the debate cease.
The convention elected John P. White,
president of the Iowa miners, and Pat
rick Gildae. president of district No. 1,
Pennsylvania, as delegates to the Inter
national Mining Congress at London.
The report of the tellers showed the

When She Docs, America Will Ap
prove Treatment of Castro.
PARIS, Jan. 23. (9;30 P. M.) Further
Inquiries at the Forolgn Office confirm the
statement made this afternoon that a
decision regarding what action shall be
taken toward Venezuela has not been
reached. It Is pointed out that entire ac
cord exists between France and the
United States, and when France Is ready
to move it will be with the full knowledge
and approval of Washington. The offi
cials, however, decline to discuss the
eventual intentions of the French gov
ernment. The reports circulated to the effect that
a blockade has been ordered are evi
dently founded on the statement received
from Ambassador Jusserand that the
United States will not oppose a naval
demonstration, coupled with the dispatch
from Port of Spain, saying that the
Dosalx and the Jurien de la Graviere had
left there for an unknown destination.
No Violation or Monroe Doctrine to
Thrash Castro.
PARIS, Jan. 23. President Loubet pre
sided today at a Cabinet Council hold in
the Elysee Palace, at which Premier Rou
vler announced that he had received a
communication from Ambassador Jusser
and to the effect that the United States
did not consider a French naval demon
stration against Venezuela to be a viola
tion of tho Monroe doctrine. France, it
is pointed out, thus has her hands free,
but tho situation is unchanged for the
moment, as the council will not take de
cisive action until the report of M. Talg
ny, the former Charge d'Affalrcs at Ca
racas, Is received.

ternoon and spent half an hour with
him. At the conclusion of the confer
ence, which. It is understood, related to
the "Venezuelan situation, he declined
to make a. statement as to what took
place, it Is believed that Mr. Root is
as yet uninformed of the French pur

that the Ambassador himself has not

mine lost their lives In an immense snow
slide yesterday afternoon. No particu
lars or the names of the men can be ob
tained, as the telephone line is down and
communication of all kinds destroyed.
The mine blacksmith shop and .several
tram cars axe also known to have been
swept away.
No trains from Durango or Denver have
arrived here since last Wednesday, due
v -T
to slides and Immense drifts of snow,
which have blocked the tracks. All the
short line roads running to outlying
camps are now snowed In. There are 11
slides between Sllverton and Elk Park.
The slides average from seven to 30 feet
deep and from 50 to 450 feet wide. An
immense slide went Into the Animas River
forming a dam of snow and Ice, which
caused tho stream to dsck up ana orcf
flow the Rio Grande tracks to a depth of
four feet. It will be two weeks before
traffic can be resumed between Sllverton
and Durango.
The Iowa mill. In Arastra Gulch, has
been crushed in by heavy snow slides,

Visitors to Portland Ductus Various
Topics of Interest.
PRIEXDS of George J. Whalen, presi
dent of the United States Cigar Stores
Company, who was in Portland about ten
days ago making arrangements to open
up several tobacco stores in this city, say
he Is a remarkable example of a self
made man. When a boy 17 years of age
Mr. Whalen bought an Interest In a
cigar stand in a Syracuse hotel. He was
very thrifty and saved his money, with
the result that within a few years he was
able to purchase another stand.
Every cent he could possibly save was
put into cigar stores until finally he had
them in most of the leading cities In
New York State. About five years ago he
conceived the Idea of opening up a string
of cigar stores In New York City. He
organized the United Cigar Stores Com
pany for this purpose. From the very
start the cigar stores In New York made
money, and then he began extending them
all over the United, States. Xow he has
SCO cigar stores In this country, and has
extensive interests ,in many tobacco
plantations. Mr. Whalen. who Is only
2 years of age. Is a millionaire many
times over.
Mr. Whalen docs more than pay his em
ployes a salary, and If they are faithful
to their duty and strive for the best in
terests of the company they are reward
ed in many ways. After a man has
been in the employ of the company for
more than a year he is given a $lCO)
life Insurance policy, the premium of
which Is paid every year by the company.
The company also pays all of the doctor
bills contracted by the employes. Mr.
Whalen docs not do this just because he
is generous; he believes that the more
interest the employes take in the com
pany the more money the company will
T MAY sound rather fishy, but It
I Is nevertheless true that we have
almost as many delicacies in Fairbanks,
which Is situated In the Interior of
Alaska, as you have In Portland." So
said Abe Spring, the organizer of the Ta
nana Electric Company, who Is now a
guest at the Oregon Hotel. "In the mid
dle of the Winter when the thermometer
registers something like SO degrees below
zero we have lobsters, crabs, oysters,
frog legs, halibut, and many other good
things to cat.
"But you must understand that we hive
to pay dear for such things. A can of
oysters such as you could purchase In
Portland for CO cents would bring st least
J3 in Fairbanks. There are so many fig
ures in the price asked and obtained for
frogs legs that it has slipped my mem
ory, but it is pretty steep. The delicacies
such as I have named are shipped from
the Coast States to Vaidcz and then
taken Into Fairbanks by sled. The min
ers all have lots of money, and they will
pay almost any price for anything they
happen to fancy. Tho men who are bring
ing the delicacies Into Fairbanks are mak
ing considerable money.
"I wish some one would explain to me
why Portland does not fry to obtain at
least a part of the Alaska trade. It
could be had for the mere asking, pro
vided, of course. Portland could meet the
competition of San Francisco and Seattle.
The Alaskans know that the Portland
business men are conservative, and some
of us are Inclined to think that they are
too conservative. If they are not. why
don't they go after the Alaska business?
A line of steamers would pay as soon as
The Tanana Electric Company. In which
Mr. Spring Is heavily interested, will

than J250.0CO. Already some of the mines
near Fairbanks have light furnished them
by the Tanana Electric Company, and
along one creek alone the wires are strung
along for a distance of nine miles. In the
Winter electricity will be generated by
electricity, and In the Summer water
power will be used. The electricity which
is now furnished the mines by the com
pany Is generated by steam, as work has
only begun on the Installation of the
water power plant.

Is now on his way East, where he will
make a study of the market conditions in

"The orchards are yielding such good
