may mark a red letter in the Russian
calendar. About 100 representatives
of provincial zemslvos assembled pri

In plain terms the necessity for call

however, will be carefully avoided.
The Liberals have been greatly ex
cited by the developments of the last
few days. The meeting was to be
held at the duma. or city hall, but at
the last moment official auspices were

Many of the zemstvos' representa
tives attribute the -peror's attitude
primarily to the i?Taenee of Grand
Duke Sergius, M. Pobedonosteff, the
procurer general of the holy synod,
and M. Sassonoff, a member of the
council of the empire, and indirectly
to such reactionaries as Merchersky,
Strumer and Suchinsky. The two lat
ter were the late Interior Minister von
Plehve's assistants, who were promot
ed to the council of the empire. When
Prince Sviatopolk-Mirsky dispensed
with their services the spectre of the
constitution was successfully raised,
according to their view. They are
not disposed to criticise Prince Svia
topolk-Mirsky, whose good intentions
they do not question. They believe
he is powerless, but nevertheless they
express disappointment at the fact
that he yielded.
At tne meeting In the afternoon
seven of the ten articles composing
the prepared memorandum were adopt
ed. These sections declares that the
"abnormal conditions in Russia are
the result of the complete estrange
ment of the government and people,
due to the absence of essential, requi
site mutual confidences." These sec
tions also dedaie that the conditions
necessitate freedom of conscience,
speech, press and the privilege of
meeting in union and assert that the
peasants must be placed on an equal
ity with the other classes.
