The Pioneer ^Slul'oompAlKr, Ws^e. ooa^ mmSmm wlSwt^liSirTOnsent the tb» dwtraet with* mm Russia is Experiencing a New Sensation Today in Conduct ing Elections for the First Time. St. Petersburg, Jan. 18.—The holi day truce in Russian politics is over and the new political parties are mus tering their strength for Russia's first all-important electorial campaigns. The opening guns will be fired today when the delegates of the constitu tional democrats will be assembled to di8cqs8 their elaborate platform. This party represents the advanced liberal opinions of the zemstvo majority and the platform will closely follow the resolutions of the last zemstvo con gress. The allied moderate parties which are standing on the basis of the manifesto of October 30 will also be early in the field. There will be a conference of the leaders from various parts of the .empire here this week. This coalition which embraces the party of law and order, the October ists and five lesser factions has chosen the name of Constitutional Monarchists and will nominate can didates in common, realizing that singly they are too weak to meet the well organized constitutional demo crats or even the social democrats and social revolutionists. Though officially they are on record as being in favor of boycotting the national asembly and continuing the armed revolt they have awakened to the necessity for securing a represen tation in the coming national assem bly, and are concentrating their atten tion on securing a full registration from the labor, professional and socialistic organizations. With the League of Leagues they have formed campaign committees in each election district in order to get out the vote. In consequence of the great-rush to register the period of Registration which expireif yesterday f.^aB been extended for two weeks. Un ier the new electorial plan by which r/tn A«n 1 Aln^f/ixn 1 merged into general elactoral commis sions in the provinces and cltieB there is little chance of an absolute majority for the socialists but the leaders hope to get enough electors to hold the bal ance of power and force an alliance and a division of seats with the con stitutional democrats. ^During the holidays the pacification of the country has been steadily going forward. By an unsparing use of the military and wholesale, arrests of the leaders of the fighting' organizations the revolutionists have been driven under ground and have been forced to return to their old methods of assassination. Not a day' passes with out reports of the jxiurder of obnoxious officials in Beveral cities. So far St. Petersburg has escaped owing to the demoraliaztion of the terrorists here and the activity of the police. In spite of the closest watch It Is always pos sible that an emmissary of the ter rorist brotherhood may 'arrive un noticed from another locality and at tempt to .execute sentences passed on Interior Minister Durnovo and other leaders of the work of repression.
