CAMP AT PORTHCAWL. BAPTISTS RELEASED. Odessa, Monday.—The 224 Baptists, includ- ing 30 women and 12 licensed preachers, have been released from prison after the seven days' incarceration to which they were condemned. Two telegrams addressed to M. Stolypin by the imprisoned Baptists, entreating his inter- vention on their behalf, remained unanswered. The Baptist meeting-house in the Pefeseyo suburb remains closed and under police seal. A similar persecution of the sectarians known as Stundists has been initiated, jointly by the orthodox missionary authorities and the police. In practice, if not in theory, the freedom of religious worship promulgated in the Imperial manifesto of October, 1905, and confirmed by a subsequent ukase in April last year, appears te have been abrogated, and all the Russian Nonconformists and sectarians are again sub- ject to the same stringent disabilities imposed upon them by what is now meaninglessly des- cribed as the old regime. To all intents and purposes the old regime has been restored.— Central News.
