Durugee Sto re,
ment brought all the
members of the council
toward the half open
door. A courier from the
czar arrived at Irkutsk!
If the officers had re
flected for an instant on the imuproba
bility of that fact, they would have cer
tainly considered it impossible.
The grand duke had quickly moved
toivard his aid-de-camp.
"That courier!" said he.
A man entered. He had the air of
one worn out by fatigue. He wore the
costume of a Siberian peasant, much
worn, even torn, and on which one
could see bullet holes. A Russian bon
rt covered his head. A scar, badly
healed crossed his face. The man had
evidently followed a long and trying
route. His shoes and stockings, in a
bad state, even proved that he had
made part of his journey on foot.
"His highness the grand duke?" said
h on entering.
The grand duke went up to him.
"Are you a courier from the czar?"
he asked him.
"Yes, your highness."
"You come from"
"You left Moscow"
"The 15th of July."
"You are called"
It was Ivan Ogareff. He had taken
the name and position of the man
whom he believed to be powerless.
Neither the grand dul:e nor any other
person in Irkutsk knew him. He had
not even needed -:o disguise his fea
tures. As he had the means of proving
his pretended identity, no one could
doubt him. He ca.me, then, sustained
by a will of iron, to hasten by treason
and assassination the conclusion of the
drama of the invasion.
After the answer of Ivan Ogareff the
grand duke made a sign, and all his

remained alone in :he room.
The grand duke looked at Ivan Oga
reff for some seconds and with the
greatest attention. Then he asked him:
"You were on the 15th of July at
"Yes. your highness, and on the night
from the 14th to the 15th I saw his
majesty the czalr at the New palace."
"You have a letter' from the czar?"
"Here ;I. is."
And Ivan Ogateff handed to the
grand duke the imperial letter, reduced
to dimensions almost microscopic.
"Was that letter given to you in that
state?" asked the grand duke.
"No, your highness, but I was com
pelled to tear .pe-n the envelope in or
der to better conceal it from the Tartar
"IHave you, then, been a prisoner of
"Yes, your l:ighness, during a few
days," answered Ivan Ogareff. "It is
on that account that, having set out
from Moscow on the 15th of July, 1

October after a journey of sixty-nine
The grand dluke took the letter. He
unfolded it and recognized the signa
ture of the czair. preceded by the sacra
mental formula. wr-itten with his own
hand. Hence there was no possible
doubt concerning the authenticity of
that letter nor- indeed concerning the
identity of the cour-ier. if his fierce
look at irst .inspired mistrust.- the
grand duke did not allow it to be seen.
and soon the mistrust disappeared.tal
The grand duke r-emained some mo
ments without spetaking. He was read
ing slowly the letter in order to thor
oughly gather the s;ense of it.
Taking up again the speech, he ask
"Michael Str-ogoff, do you know tile
contents of this letter?"
"Yes, your highness. I might have
been compelled to destroy it to prevent
It from falling Into the hands of the
Tartars, and if that should happen I
wished to bring its contents to your
"Do you kuow that this letter enjoins
us to die at Irkutsk rather than sur
render the city ?"
"I know it."
"Do you also know that it points out
the movements of the troops who have
combined to check the Invasion?"
"Yes, your highne:n . But those move
ments have not succeed1ed."
"What do you mean?"
"I wish to tell you that Ichim, Omsk,
Tomsk, not to speak of other important
towns of the two Siberias, have been

diers of Feofar-Khan."
"-But has there been a battle? Have
our Cossacks ever met the Tartars?"
"Several times, your highnes-s."
"And they were r:epulsed?"
"They-were not In sufficient strength
"-Where have the encounters takc
place of whIch you speak?"
"At Kalyvan, at 'omsk."
Up to this time Iv-an Ogareff had only
told the truth, but with the object, of
fighting the defenders of Irkutsk by
exaggerating the advantages obtained
by the troops of the emir, he added:
"And a third time before Krasnol
'-And that last engagement?" asked
the grand duke, whose firmly set lips
scarcely allowed the words to pass.
"It was more than an engagement,
your highness," answered Ivan Oga
reff; "it was a battle."
"Twenty thousand Russians, coming
from the provinces of the frontier and
from the government of Tobolsk, came
into collision with a force of a hundred
and fifty thousand Tartars, and In spite
of their courage thiey have been anni

endeavored. but in vain, to master his
"I tell the truth, your highness," cool
ly replied Ivan Ogareff. "I was pres
ent at that battle of Krasnoiarsk, and
It Is there where I was made 1:isoner!"
The grand duke became calm, and by
a sign he gav-e Ivan Ogareff to under
stand that he did not doubt his verac
"On what day dhl this battle of
Krasnoiarsk take place?" he asked.
"On the 2d of September."
"And now all the Tartar forces are
concentrated around lrkutsk?"
"And you would number them at"

"And I musi: not expect any succor
from the provinces of the west?" ask
ed the grand dake.
"None, your Aighness-at least before
the end oi winter."
"Very well. Listen to this, Michael
Strogoff: Should no relief come to me,
neither from the west nor the east, and
were there 00,000 Tartars, I would
not give up Irkutsk!"
The wicked eye of Ivan Ogareff light
ly blinked. The traitor seemed to say
that the brother of the czar was reck
oning without treason.
~ The grand duke, of a nervous temper
ament, had great difficulty in preserv
ing his calmness on learning this dis
astrous news. lIe w mik)irp and down
the room unde:- the eyes ci Ivan Oga
reff, who covered him as a prey re
served for his vengeauce. lie stopped
at the windows. He looked out upon
the Tartar fires. Ile was trying to
find out the ncise. the --rcater part of
which was caused by the grating of the
fee on the river.
A quarter of an hour passed without
his putting ar other question. Then,
again taking tp the letter. he read a
passage of it aad said:
"You know, Michael Srogoff, that
there is question in this letter of a
traii:or against whom I have to be on
"Yes, your highness."
"He is to attempt to enter Irkutsk
disguised to win my confidence; then,
at the proper time, to deliver up the
town to the Tartars."
"I know all that, your highness, and
I also know that Ivan Ogareff has
sworn personal vengeance on the broth
er of the czar."
"They say that that officer had been
condemned by the grand duke to a
most humiliating degradation."
"Yes, I remember. But he deserved
It, that wretch, who was afterward to
serve against his country and to lead
there an invasion of barbarians!"
"His majesty the czar," n'nswered
Ivan Ogareff, "relied c.pec;ally on the
fact that you were aware of the crim
inal projects of Ivan Ogareff against

"And'his majesty told it to me him

swered the grand duke. "And how did
"By throwing myself into the irtish."
"And how did you enter Irkutsk?"
"During a sortie that was made this
very night to repel a Tartar detach
mnt I joined in with the defenders of
the town. I was able to make myself
known, and they at once conducted me
before your highness."
"WVell done. Micehael Str'ogolf." an
swered the grand duke. "You have
shown courage- and zeal during this
difficult mission. I shall not f'orget
you. Have you any favor- to ask of
"None if it be not that of fighting by
the side of your highness," answered
"Let it be so, Mlichael Strogoff. From2
this day I attach you to my person,
and you shall be lodged in this p)alace."
"And if in conformity with the inten
tion which is attributed to him Ivan
Ogareff should present himself before
your highness under' a false' name"
"We would unmask him. thanks to
you wvho know him, and by my order
he should die under the knout. Go."
Ivan Ogareff gave the miilitary salute
to the grand duke, not forgetting that
he was captain in the corps of the cou
riers of the czar. and Lhe withdrew.
Ivan Ogarecff had just now lplayed wvith
success his base role. The grand duke's
conidence had been accorded him full
Iand entire. ie could abuse it when
and where he thought proper'. He
would even live in that palace. H~e
would know all the secrets of the de
fense. He held, therefore, the situation
in his hand. No one in Irkutsk knew
him. No one could tear off his mask.
He resolved, therefore, to begin the
work without more delay.
Ivan Ogareff. having every facility
of seeing, observing and acting, spent
the next day in v'isitin g the fortifica
tions. Everywhere he was received
with cordial congratulations by the
officers, soldiers and citizens. This cou
rier of the czat- was like a tie which
...hem to the- empire. Ivan Oga
ref ore recounted to them all the
ee of his journey, and this with a
vivacity that was-never wanting. Then
adroitly, without at first insisting on It
too much, he spoke of the gravity of
the situation, exaggerating, as he had
done while addressing the grand duke,
both the successes of the Tartars and
the forces at their disposal. To listen
to him, the succor would be insufficient
should it even come, ard it was to be
feared that a battle fought under the
walls of Irkutsk would be as disas
trous as the battles of Kalyvan, of
Tomsk and of Krasnoiarsk.
Ivan Ogareff was not at first lavish
in these sinister insinuations. He took
care they should penetrate by degrees
Into the minds of the defenders of Ir
kutsk. He seemed to answer only when
a great many questions were put to
him and then as though with regret.
In any case he added always that it
must defend itself to the last man, and
they must blow it up rather than sur
If the defenders of Irkutsk eeculd
have been discouraged, Ivan Ogareff
had chosen an efficient means. But
the garrison and population 'of Irkutsk
were too patriotic to allow themselves
to be frightened. Of those soldiers, of
those citizens, shut up in an isolated
town at the farthest end of the Asiatic
world, not one had dreamed -of speak
ing of capitulation. The disdain of
IRussia for those barbarians was with
out limit. In any case no one for a mo
ment suspected the hateful role which
Ivan Ogareff was playing. No one
could have imagined that the pretended
courier of the czar was nothing else
than a traitor.
was the cause, from his arrival at Ir
kutsk, of there being frequent relations
between Ivan Ogareff and one of Its
bravest defenders, Wassili Feodor. One
knows with what anxiety this unhap
py father was devoured. If his daugh
ter, Nadia Feodor, had left Russia at
the date assigned by the last letter he
had received from Riga, what had be
come of her? Was she still trying to
traverse the invaded provinces, or,
rather, had she already been for a long
time a prisoner? Wassili Feodor could
not fird any solace for his sorrow ex
cept when he had some opportunity of
fighting against the Tartars, opportu
nities which were too seldom for his
liking. Now, when Wassili Feodor was
informed of the unexpected arrival of
a courier from the czar he had a pre
sentiment that this courier could give
him scme tidings of his daughter. It
was only a very slight hope. but still
he clung to it.
Wassili Fodor went to find Ivan
Ogareff, who availed himself of this
opportunity to have daily relations
with the commandant. Did the rene
gade think he could turn that circum
sfance to his own profit? Did he judge
all men by himself? Could he believe
that a Russian, even a political exile,
could be so mean as to betray his coun
try? Whatev'er was the case. Ivan
Ogareff met with skillfully feigned ea
gerness all the advances made to him
by the father of Nadia. The latter, the
very next motning after the arrival of f
the pretended courier, went to the pal
ace of the governor general. There he
informed Ivan Ogareff of the circum
stances under which his daughter had
to leave European Russia and told him
now what was his anxiety in her re
Ivan Ogareff did not know Nadia, al- (
though he had met her at the post
house of Ichim the day on which she
was there with Michael Strogoff. ButI
then he had paid no more attention to
her than the two journalists, who were
at the same time in the posthouse. He I
could not therefore give any news of
his daughter to Wassili Feodor.
"But at what time," asked Ivan Oga
reff, "had your daughter to leave Rus
"At nearly the same time as you," re
plied Wassili Feodor.
"I quitted Moscow on the 15th of
"And Nadia also had to leave Moscow
on that date. Her letter told me so ex
"She was at Moscow on the 15th of i
July?" asked Ivan Ogareff. t
"Yes, certainly at that date."
"Very well," replied Ivan Ogareff. C
Then, recollecting himself, he added:
"But, no; I was forgetting. I was
about to confound dates. It is unfortu
nately too probable that your daugh
ter has had to cross the frontier, and N
only one hope remains-that she may
have stopped on receiving news of the
Wassili Feodor hung down his head.
He knew Nadia, and he knew well that
nothing would prevent her setting off.
By this statement Ivan Ogareff had
just committed gratuitously an act of
real cruelty. With one word he could
reassure Wassili Feodor.
Although Nadia had passed the fron
tier under the circumstances previous
ly described, Wassili Feodor, by com
paring the date at which his daughtera
was certainly at Nijni Novgorod andc
the date of the order forbidding any one I
to leave it, would withotit doubt draw
this conclusion-that Nadia could not
have been exposed to the dangers of
anivso and that she was still, in
asp iteohrsef on the European terri
torye of theerse.
Ivan Qgareff might have said that
word. lie did not say it. Wassili Feo
don withdrew heartbroken. After that
interview his last hope was destroyed.
During the two following days the
grand duke several times asked for
the pretended Michael Strogoff and had
him repeat all that he had heard in the
imperial cabinet of the Newv palace.
Ivan Ogar-eff, pr1eparied for all those
quetions, answered without ever hesi
tating. H~e (lid not conceal designedly
that the governmenUt of the czar had
been altogether taken by surprise by
the invasion; thi~t the r-ising had been
prepared with the greatest secrecy;
that the Tar-tars wvere already masters
of the line of the Obi wvhen the news
reached Moscow. and finally that noth
ng was ready in the Russian provinces
to throw into Siberiai tr-oops sufficient
to repel the inv-aders
Afterward Ivan Ogareft, entirely
free in his movements. began to study
Irkutsk, the state of its fortifications,
their weak ploints. in order eventually
to make use of those observations if
any circumstance should prevent the
consummatienl of his treason. He de
voted himself umore particularly to the
examination of the. Eolchaaa gate,
which he intended treacherously to sur
render. Twice at night he came to in
spect that gate and -the fortifications
around it. Hie walked about there with
out any fear of exposing himself to the
missiles of the besiegers, whose first
posts were less than a verst from the
ramparts. He knew well that he was
not exposed-nay, even that he was
recognized. lHe had had a glimpse of
a shadow which had glided to the foot
of the ramparts.
Sangarre, risking her life, had just
come to try to put herself in com-eni
cation with Ivan Ogareff. Besides, the
besieged for two days had enjoyed a
tranquillity to which they had not been
accustomed since the Tartars first in- -
vested Irkutsk. It was by order of
The lieutenant of Feofar-Khan had
wished that all attempts to carry the
town by sheer force should be suspend
ed. Thus after his arrival at Irkutsk
the artillery was absolutely silent. Per
haps-at least he hoped so-the vigi
lance of the besieged would be some
what relaxed. In any case, at the out
posts several thousand Tartars were
ready to burl themselvesm against the
gate when deprived of its defenders,
when Ivan Ogareff should let them
know the hour for action. .
Meanwhile that could not be long de
layed. They must make an end of it
Iefore the Russian corps should arrive
In sight of Irkutsk. The resolution of
Ivan Ogareff was taken, and that very
night from the top of the rampart a
note fell into the hands of Sangarre.
It was the following night, the night
from the 5th to the Gth of October, at
So'clock in the morning, that Ivan
Ogareff had fixed for delivering up Ir
kutsk to the Tartars.
