who today opened the Kazan congreaa
with delegatea from 12 of the Volga

In pursuance of the decision of the
government to permit the national con

party anywhere except In Ht. Peters

the reopening of Constitutional Demo

but persists In its determination to
suppress political agitation In the capi

ol the week haa been the change in sen
timent concerning the late General
Trcpofl. The universal chorus of mal
ediction and condemnation has given
place since his death to a non-partisan
appreciation ol his real merits and de
fects, and his career has been the sub
ject ol fair and even laudatory criti
cisms in nearly all circles. M. Mem

litber, who was recently euppreaeed,
but who is now a contributor to Here
