By the ABsocla'ed Press,
London, Oot. 22.—Today hai pro
duced practically nothing to the point in
regard to the situation ot the czar. Id
all the continental capitals and in Loo
don there have been streams of callers
of all classes at the Russian embassy.
To these, however, little information was
vouchsafed, and that little consisted of
Frayerß and masses are incessantly
offered from St. Petersburg to Vladi
vostock; from Rome to Buenos Ay res.
The wild rumors reported yesterday
from Bt. Petersburg were repeated today
in still wilder forms. From Moscow
comes a report that there are people
there wbo insist the czarowitz has re
fused to ascend tbe throne and that the
czar, in order to compel him to do go,
bas ordered bis immediate marriage to
Princess Alix. Tbe Moscovitea fear tbat,
should tbe rumors prove trne, they will
have to face tbe gravest peril possible.
The Cologne Gazette prints a St. Pe
tersburg telegram stating that tbe czar
has given orders for the settlement ol
the succession to tbe imperial council.
He baa advised tbat Grand Duke
George, bis second eon, should, on ac
count of hiß health, renounce his claim
for tho crown to Grand Duke Micbuel,
wbo ongbt to take tbe oath as the heir
presumptive to the throne.
Tbe Berlin Tageblatt published a tele
gram from Lividia asserting the be
trothal of tbe czarowitz and Princess
Alix will formally occur tomorrow, and
tbat the marriage will be celebrated
Wednesday. This hastening of the cere
mony is said to be due to tho rule of the
Romanoffs requiring any heir apparent
to marry before ascending the throne
and to proclaim his successor. On this
account the proclamation of Grand
Duke Michael ac the heir apparent is
generally expected. Another rule in
accordance with the accession requires
that when tbe oath of allegiance of a
new czar ie administered to the troops
and officials, an oath of fidelity to tbe
heir apparent must be taken at tbe

New York, Oot. 22.—Colonel Strong
was thia afternoon waited npon by the
notification committee of the New York
State Dimocraoy and waa officially ten
dered the nomination for mayor by that
organization. George Waitgreen waa
chief spokesman. In presenting the
nomination he said, in part:
"You are a Republican, we are Dem
ocrats, but you enter thia fight not aa a
partisan leader, but aa tbe champion ol
all honest citizens, under whatever flag
they march, against the hordes of cor
ruption, no matter under what party
name they maaquerade.
"To roligiona bigotry, under whatever
guise, you are and always have been an
avowed and open foe; for thia we honor
yon. To the widest peraonal liberty
under the law you are and always have
been the faithful, fearless friend: for
thia, too, we honor and admire you."
Colonel Strong, in accepting the nomi
nation, aaid the citizens of New York for
tbe last six yeara have been governed
by a corrupt ring of conspiratora tbat
had brought diegrace upon municipal
government throughout the land. The
exposition made by tbe terrific probe by
Mr. Goff before the Lexow committee
had awakened tbe good people of the
city, regardless of party affiliations to a
determined effort to eradicate corrup
tion. Colonel Strong eaid:
"I want to aay that my convictions
are clear, that all secret oath-bound po
litical organizationa are contrary to the
spirit of our institutions, and I do not
believe any political party can or ought
to exist when one of its cardinal princi
ples is opposed to freedom of thought
and the worship of God according to the
dictates of one's own conscience."
