8T. PKTKHPHl'Il' I, April 12 A demand
for thfi exclusion from I'arllainfnt of three
aoclalist drputiH piiid im tlndr trial for
political offenses, suhmiUed to the lower
house of J'arlian.ent hy the minister of
Justice, M. Oitclu-KlovltofT, caug.-d great
excitement at today's session. The prose
cutions of the deputies were instituted In
the provlnii nl courts tor acts commuted
before ti.e convocation of Parliament. Two
of the men. I fjeurus. a teacher ai.d
Social revolutionist or Kuban, and A. A.
Kuxnetzoff, social democrat of Simbrlsk,
are accused of huiiiK socialists, and, there
fore, members of a party contemplating
the overthrow of the state. The third.
A. R. Kupstas, a peasant land owner of
Kovna, who was returned a member of tho
left party, is charged with makliiK revolu
tionary speei hes. The constitutional demo
crats proposed to refer the ministers' de
mand to a committee, hut the soclalmts
and revolutionists Insisted on an Immediate
flat refusal In order to place the house on
record against the classification as crimes
of such acts as the three deputies arc
charged with. M. Alexlnsky, social demo
crat of St. Petersburg, In an excited speech
pointed out that a recognition of the min
ister's right to demand the deputies ex
clusion might lead to the extension of a
third of the membership of the house.
The minister of Justice defended his de
mand. Ho said the law rle.irly provided
for the temMiraiy suspension of ch puties
Indicted for criminal acts. The house, he
Insisted, had no discretion In the matter,
and he further asserted that the Russian
courts were above suspicion, a statement
which was greeted with Ironical laughter.
Speakers Ilenonnre Action.
M. Chtcheglovitoff's remarks were blunt
and uncompromising and brought out
fiery answers. Kven the constitutional
democrats were swept off their feet. The
rule closing the sitting at 4 o'clock, was
uspended, and the house shook with ap
plause as speaker after speaker denounced
the Russian Judicial system an being u
travesty on Justice.
M. Tesllnko, constitutional democrat of
Moscow, doolarwd that for forty years
the minfuters of Justice had been tearing
out pages from the code of Russian laws
until nothing but the covers remained. Tho
prosecuting attorneys, he declared, were
graduates of gendarme offices and the
Judges cifatures of the present regime.
M. Azemoff, constitutional democrat, re
ferred to the fact that in the indictment of
M. Kuznctsoff, he was classed as a revo
lutionist, a phrase of speech appealing to
the overthrow of the autocracy. Then
turning dramatically to the minister of
Justice, M. Azemoff, asked whether Russia
was Mill an autocracy, for "if so, the
manifesto of October 30 was a lie. and it
not, then the defense of the autocracy
Vile the real revolutionists."
M. Alexlnsky proposed that troops be
brought In to arrest the deputies and
thereby complete the humiliation of Par
liament. Tho constitutional democratic
resolution to refer tho demand of tho min
ister of Justice to a committee, which was
opposed hy both the socialists and govern
ment, was carried by a vote of 1ST to 175.
On account of the Increasing mass of
work morning sessions were discontinued.

Tlie premier's letter is considered to lo
a step toward hrinning al)mit a morv In

Senator Gamble Is outspoken In behalf

of the president's renomlnai Ion. He said
today on leaving the White House that
there had been no better test of sentiment
than the poll of the legislature, which
showed that it was simply overwhelming
for President Roosevelt.
The people have not thought of anybody
else," he said, "and those has been no
crystalization of opinion around the names
of other candidates."
! This Is Senator Gamble's opinion. When
Senator Klttredge returns from his trip
with Secretary Taft he may be a pronounced

South Dakota, so far ns the two senators
are concerned, appears easy of solution.

wings of the republican party In Soutn

too many "loaves and fishes" In the near
'future to dispense, and patronage Is oim

name of White had not been connecti'd
with that of the show girl, and their asso-

criminal calendar cannot possibly bo

The panes attending the announcement
by the Jury of the Inability to agree were
robbed of any thratrirallsm by the general
iH-lief that after the ir long delibe ration and
the re ports of a wide division of se ntiment
the Jurors could make no other report than
one; of disagreement.
Defendant Almost Cnllnpaea.
Thaw, surrounded by the member of his
family, received the news In absolute
silence. When It beirauie known that tho
jury was about to make It.s report Thaw
called his wife to a seat by his side and
sat with his right arm thrown about her
until he- Win comm. .11. led to stand and face
the Jurors. Smiling and contldent as he
cntctvd the court room, he sunk limply
into his chair when Foreman Demlng R.
Sinlili, In response to a cpo'stinti by Clerk
Penny us to whether a verdict had beta
agreed upon, said: "We have not."
The mother, her face hidden behind a
dense veil of black, sat stolid and motion
less. In 111 health of late she hud felt se
verely the strain and stress of the long
hours uf anxious waiting. The wife
gripped her husband's hand tight as the
Jury foreman spoke, und then, when he
sank down by her side, she tried to cheer
him as best she could by saying that she
believed he would now be admitted to ball
and that a m-conel Jury would surely set
him free-. The; mother, the siste-rs an! th
brothers, pale and well-nigh exhuusted by
their tedious, ne rve-racking wait for a ver
dict, were permitted to speak with Thaw
for a few moments, to bid him be of good
cheer before ho i-rosseei the "I.ridg of
