EMPEROR'S ADDRESS QUITE CONCILIATORY THOUGH HE LEFT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE at aion. Petersburg, May 10 The se.s of the first parliamentary body in the history of Russia was opened at the Taaride Palace by the czar to iay. It was the occasion of a grand display of imperial splendor, and at lie sime time a demonstration of the fact that the government is determ ined to abrogate completely its power of dictating to the people. Many thousands of people from all porta of the country had come to &t. Peters burg to wit.ne.ss the scenes accom panying the opening of the first na tional assembly, or douma. Troops and, polk were scattered all through the city and had a -watchful eye on everything of a suspicious nature, that might be going on la any part of the city, particularly around the imperial palace find the Taurlde pal ace. The streets between the two ipalace.s were carefully guarded by a largo f Jrce of troops and police, to prevent any attempt upon the life of Jie czar on his way to and from the iparllanient building. Outside of the cordon of troops thousands of people crowded the streets, eager to catch la gliuapse of the czar and hU brilliant suite, j At an early hour this morning, I heralds, gorgeously attired, rode through the streets on richly capar isoned horses, and proclaimed the opening of the national assembly, and, at the jams time, commanded eace and order. It was high noon, when the czar, surrounded by the members of the cabinet, the officials of t'he court and a brilliant suite of officers, and vt the army started from the inv (icrtal palace to the faurlde iuac- whore the members of the national assembly, wbo had recently been elect ed, were already assembled, awn.it.lng t'he arrival of "tho emperor. Count Witte was absent ami hi.-" place near the emperor was taken by the new premier, Goremykln, whose appear ance was the signal of hostile demon strations In the crowd, which, how ever, were quickly suppressed by the police. Gorgeous Procession Arrives. When the gorgeous procession had reached the p.?rtal of the Tauride pal ace, the military escort formed In double lines, between which the czar and the members of the his suite en tered. At the portal the emperor was received by a delegation of the douma and escorted to the grand (hall, where the national assemby was awaiting the arrival of the emperor. The actual opening ceremony was brief. The czar delivered a ehort ad dress, In which ho announced amnesty for political prisoners and the aboli tion of martial law. After a brief reference to the sentiments which had prompted him to give to hi3 people a national assembly, and after having pointed out t'ae duties of the first parliamentary liody of the empire, he declared the session formally opened. There was great cheering, which last ed until the czar had withdrawn and returned to the imperial palace. me opening sessixim or me aounia was quite uhort. President Petrunko viteh delieverd an address and sub mitted a number of communications from the imperial government. Includ ing a plan for the reorganization of the finances of tihe country, ter that the first tiKf-ring-journed. History cf Palace. The Taurlde palace, where for the prrsent, the sessions of the d mini will lie hold, was built in 1TS3. I "hero of t he Taurus," after the con I quest, of lb.' Crimea. Wliiii the prince cried, in 171H, It became crown prop erty, ami lias since been use! as an j exhibition building. It was completely remodelled for the purpose of making 'It suitable a a parliament building. The whole central .oiiloji of th pal ace will be occupied lor the purposes of the national assembly. Tae hall, ; in which tile members mwt., U a.b ;t as lar,? as the Hous. of Kepreenta , Uvea in Washington, and Is entirely 1 decorated iu white and adornM wi;n freeooes from Potenikin's time. Be hind the president's chair, and facing the representatives, is a large bow window, looking out upon a garden. The seats and desks of the representa tives have been arranged around the hall, tier on tier, as In a theater. The tribune, from which, tie members will address the house, Is ia the center, and on earth side of it are tri seats for the secretarltd ot the douma. The president's chair is behind the tribune an are also the places for the min isters and their assistants and the preea. There are 654 seats for rep resentatives, and under each is a ventilator. The desks have sliding tops, which will thus do away wilia the banging of lid, to which turbu lent parliamentarians might resort to give expression to their displeasure. No place has been made for ink wells, which are not to be permitted, and the representatives will liave to. make pencil notes. Th-u object of this is. probably, to prevent the throwing of ink wells by disgruutled members, one of the favorite methods of par liamentary warfare in some of the parliamentary bodies of Europe.
