ing among his follow ' workmen, who are
depressed because of the scandal.
It now develops that Father Gupnti was
himself present at yesterday's session
when SechofT killed himself. Father Ore

taining L'.'io from Father Gapon and with
having accompanied a mcmlicr of the se
cret police lu the search for M. Malus
hensky. press agi-nt and counsellor of tin
Father Gapon movement, who tied with the
organization's fund. During the meeting
Bechoff made an Impassioned speech, de
claring he could not support the Infamy

tion bad lieen In league with the govern
ment nor the obliquy heaped on himself,
as both he and the organization were.
Innocent. SechofT then called on Father
Gapon to declare in the presence of his
fellows whether he (Scchoffl had received
a cent from the government- Father
Gapon arose and exonerated SechofT.
whereupon the latter said: "1 will now
give you the supreme proof of my hon
esty." and. drawing a revolver, hi- blew
out his brnlns.
Pate for Russian Elections.
An Imperial ukase, which appears toduj,
orders the elections to the national as
sembly to begin April S in twenty-eight
provinces of central Russia, on April 27
in seventeen other provinces of central
Russia and the Don regions and In two
other provinces on May 3.
The primary elections of the aaiit
class, of which there arc four degrees,
are in progress. The returns thus far are
significant. Yesterday Jn the rural dis
tricts of St. Petersburg province the peas
ants, almost without exception, chose the
present village elders and volost chief,
or members of the volost courts to select
the delegates to the provincial congress,
whl.'li will be composed of representatives
of the four degrees, and which later will
choose representatives to the national as
sembly. The selection of the sume leaders
who, under the old regime, were named,

government district agonts. Indicates that
the. voice of the t .Hants In the provincial
congresses will be conservative. No charge,
however, litis been raised thus far that
