St. Petersburg, Man li 6.—The im
perial rescript announcing that Em
peror Nicholas had decided to ton
•ene an assembly of elected represen
tatives of tho people to elaborate and
consider legislation has produced a
wonderful impression. The war aad
the battle below Mukden are forgot
ten. The rescript is hailed by many
as a second emancipation proclaimed
on the anniversary of the first, the
Novoe Vremya characterizing it as
Russia's happiest hour. The liberals
are amazed and in the (lush of enthu
siasm are reading it as a recognition
of the elective principle and the com
plete surrender of autocracy, but dis

as a great victory, realize that all will
depend on the manner iu which tho
