resolve, th.it nothing has b^en (if

buihl an empire tho like of which
tho world has never soon, and to
sway a sceptre whoao power none
will daie to question, is the dream
the Muscovite hns hugged to his 1
heart, and it has grown with hi*
grjwth, and entered into all tho
calculations ho lisis mado, so that
now when the peasant sows his

circles are awakening t<> tho fact
that Russia has two wars on her
hands?one against .Japan in the
Far East and one against tho dissatisfied
elements at homo.
It is remarkable as showing the '
discontont which exists through-1
out the empire that, as soon as it
became certain that Russia would
have to tight Japan, news of at-:
tempted outbreaks were reported
from several quarters of the empire.
There is trouble in the transCaucasus,
there is trouble in Finland,
there is trouble in Poland
and elsewhere.
The opinion is general that in
case of prolonged war with Japan,
Russia will have to face outbreaks
at homo which will be 1 iit!o
