St. Petersburg, Nov . 6.— The Official Messenger prints another strongly worded-app«aWoF-eonlldence:—It- Count Witte's marks and hints strong­ ly that the empire is threatened with dismemberment unless the people rally to its support. It is rumored that the reactionaries are attempting to unhorse Count Witte on the ground that Instead of pacify­ ing the country he has set It in flames. The political situation is most com­ plex Whether the government will be able to outride the popular storm is problematical, for Count Wltte will have a harder task In making peace with the Russian people than he had with Japan. In the midst of the con­ fusion following the abdication of ab­ solutism there has not yet been time for a realignment of parties, but the lines of (ieuvage are clear. E. tremists Want a Republic Tin\ \tremists, Including the Social­ ist w 1 kmen and students, refuse to supp ul Count Witte and have pro­ noun, ed in favor of a democratic re­ public. Tie Intellectuals and the pro­ fessionals, under the leadership of the Moscow zemstvolsls, are not yet ready to overturu the monarchy, but are con­ vinced that the reiguing bureaucracy will 1101 assist In brlugiug an end to autocracy and demand a constituent assembly based on uuiversal suffrage to decide on a form of government. The third party is made up of diverse elements of conservutism. Including the nobles anti lauded proprietors as well as the reactionaries, who, disgruntled with the emperor's surrender, neverthe­ less will he forced to the side of con­ servatism The peasants, whose tradi­ tions aud religion would lead them to the support of the emperor, are vacil­ lating between the bourgeoisie and the conservatives. While sympathizing with the liberuls' aspiration, yet they are frightened by the specter o f an­ archy FINNS GET A CONSTITUTION.

A telegram from Abo, capital of the province of Al>o-BJoroeborg, says that Governor Borgenstrom has joined the Constitution;!lists aud that the garrison of 1.700 men, including 100 Cossacks, remains passive by bis orders. Th e members o f the supreme court have been compelled to resign. Abo, how­ ever, is per\. eel ly quiet. Wife of Motttelatr CN. <M Rwtor 1 Or^ flanixes a Novel U«igue._ .
