From the numerous galleries hundreds of faces peered down ou the njore favored persons who sat below. There 'was none of the excitement and color associated with such scenes In other coiiutries. Everyone knows that this new Diet only marks another stage in the struggle with the Hussian autocracy, and never have things looked so hopeless as they do now. Nevertheless the people who thronged to see the ceremony did; not. look..;de: pressed,, but merely stolid-^ � they are accustomed to suffer-a-ud deep.down in all of ithem is that yeln of obstinacy and love of freedom which enables them to wait quietly for better times. �* . presently there marched slowly in through the great door the members 6'f !the Finnish Diet,"headed by their Socialist Speaker, with the vice-speak ers on either side. It was a moving Bight to watch the procession march by-the most democratic of parliaments 'threatened by the .most reactionary of governments.. The clothes of most of the members were simple and homely, in keeping with their peasant faces., Here and there one noticed a, woman in the -line. It seemed mainly an assembly of farm era-careworn, silent men, -wijh rugged, strongly marked faces. They took'their seats and the'service begun. Fronn Tyranny to God  "What, moves one most at a Finnish service is yie beauty and expressiveness of the singing. The chorals, in which all the congregation joined, was grand In Its strength and touching in its appropriateness to the situation. It rang out bravely, ;the appeal of a nation "from tyranny to God." When we left the church for the Palace, where the second part of the ceremony takes place wo ivere brought I face 'to face with the Immedia^is grim l.reklities. We stood In a gallory looking dov/n over the ballroom of the Palace, which in happier days was the scene of friendly hospitality extended by tlie Czcirs to their faithful subjects. Today no Czar comes 'to the deserted building, which lives on its memories. Only when the Diet Is open does It regain a temporary grant of life. Presently a symbolic drama was played out before us. From one door entered the peasan't- Diet, led again by its Socialist Speaker, and looking curiously out of place in the 'polished' and shining hall. They took up their position In a seml-olrclo opposite an Imposing-empty throne placed on a dais. . .' . - . \ ' 'After; a fdw minutes a sharp raill-tarif shout was heard and tlie Russian GoyernoT General entered, followed; by ^an endless succession of officers, both military and naval, in gorgeous uniforms. Glittering In steel and gold, they took up their positions op-po^'lte the.sombre colored Diet. Therd was something curiously barbaric and Asiatic about them. One wns luvol-untKrily reminded of some of the 'grohp'lngs one had enjoyed at the Russian B;illet. The Muzzled Diet Op�ned When they had settled themselves ft dramatic moment came. The* representatives of the autocrat Czar and of t2i� Finnish democracy took a step fowatr'd'� each . other and exchanged; -curt,'formal bows.
