Joff and Shlrskyci, two famous Russian his

January 21, In an endeavor to get him to In
tervene with Interior Minister Sviatopolk
Mlrsky, in order to prevent trouble between
the troops and the strikers the following
Suiiday, and who were nrrested early In
the week, are understood to be charged
with trying to set up a provisional govern
ment. There Is much gossip about what Is oc
curring at Tsarskoe-Seloe, but the only
thing certain Is that the emperor and his
advisors have not reached a decision re
garding further action. It is known, how
ever, thnt ii project for the creation of a
rort of Zemskyxabor, with a, limited mem
bership and along the lines of tho old Rus
sian I .nnd Parliament, as a consultative
body to his majesly, but without power of
action, has been discussed.

The real origin of the charges contained
In the London telegram posted at Moscow
by Assistant P dice Chief RoudnefT to the
effect that Great Britain has been supplying
money to tie up the Russian arsenals and
dockyards for the purpose of aiding Its
ally, Japan, la now definitely laid at the
door of Grand Duke Serglus. The grand
duke, according to absolutely reliable In
formation from Moscow, turned over the
telegram to a Moscow newspaper, tvhlch de
clined to print it, whereupon by the grand
duke's direction M. Roudneff placarded It
In the streets. Grand Duke Serglus' connec
tion with the matter Is believed to be
greatly embarrassing Foreign Minister
Lnmsdorff, who Is anxious to avoid a diplo
matic Incident. Sir Charles Hardlnge, the
British ambassador, followed up his per
sonal request for an explanation Thursday
wlfh a letter on the subject yesterday,
wheh the same charges In another form ap
peared In official papers here. Count Lama
dorlT has not yet replied to this letter, al
though at the Foreign office It Is alleged
that official as well as unofficial papers

The papers are under orders to refrain
from all save the most cautious comment
on the occurrences of Sunday and the fol
lowing days and they da not print any
details beyond the official reports, holding
that us they are not permitted to -print the
truth fully and freely they will print noth
ing further. The Rubs, however, Indulges
In an open attack on censorahlp, whlch .lt
declares to be Inadvlnabje and Inimical to
the true Interests of RtiAsla at such u
critical time and appeals to the newspapers
throughout the land to disregard It and
print the truth as they see It.
The papers serve plain notice on the
government that the receht events Indi
cate that all Russia is demanding reform
and that the proposals of the semstvolats
voice the feeling of the Russian people.
The elements behind the movement for
the betterment of Russia, It adds, are
not pickpockets, criminals or agitators, but
landed propiielors, the educated classes
and Intelligent labor. In the prees. ihe
Rusa continues, ihe government haH an
unbiased and conscientious adviser. The
rulers of Russia, dare not close their ears
to all but one set of oplnlohs. ' 1
The Rubs also prlnU a nlneteen-colunln
