Gen. Sakharoff, former minister of war, was assassinated today. The government had deputed Gen. Sakharoff to visit the province of SaratoiF for the purpose of quelling the agrarian riots there. A woman belonging to the so called “flying column” of the revolutionaiy movement called at the house of the governor at Sar-atoff at noon today and asked to see Gen. Sakharoff. She tired three idiots at the general, hilling turers. him on the spot. The event ha* created apio-found impression in St. Peter* burg, owing to fears that the revolutionists here Yvill follow the example thus set.
