THE ARIZONA BEPUBLICAN: SATURDAY MORNING, MARCH 23, 1895. A RUSSIAN EXILE , On His Way Back to Russia and Restoration When Kussia Will Adopt a Consti tution A Despotism of Princi ple Instead of Gold. Prof. Boris Pomorefeij, a rative of Kn8ia, arrived ia the nity yesterday. He was formerly a professor of philology Bttbe University of St. Petersburg He is a gentleman of deep learning and was formerly quite wealthy. On ac count of political troubles he was forced to leave Rus-ia and hia property was confiscated. There is a prospect cow of h s restoration to tin riehts at home and he. is on his return by the wav from San Francisi-o to New Orleans whence he wiil sail to Odessa. His otij.-ct in visiting New Orleans is to take initiatory steps in bis restoration at the Russian consulate there. There is a consulate at San Francisco, but on account of the troubles in the (Jreek cnuroh the there consul has been temporarily recalled to St. Petersburg and the subordinate officials are not empowered to take ac tion in so important a matter as the repatriation of a man who has been exiled for a political offense. Speaking of the present order of things in RigU the pro feBsor said that much is hoped from the new czar, but that the politi cal condition of the country could not be greatly improved until it had been given a constitution. A constitution, he said, would have to be founded upon the experiences of other nations. Rus sian statesmen !"ok to the United States and say "wait until there are no more strikes there; wait until they quit amending their cons itution and have made it perfect, and then we will Kdopt it." But the real cane of delay'is the Character of the Knssien DODUlation made np of twenty-five separate races, which differ among themselves in lan rnage and customs. The same rights and liberties extended to the inlanders 6Bd the Poles could not he granted to the Tartars, so that a constitution for the whole Russian people would almost Certainly result in the early dismem berment of the empire. Russian statesmen reply to the accusation of despotism by admitting it, bat say that it is a despotism of principle, while among their accusers, in the United States for example, it is a despotism of meani, the oppression of the poor by the rich. The professor also spoke of the great prrj-cted government railway from Yladivi8tock to the Ural raonntains, thence to Moscow, a magnificent dis tance of nearly 7,000 miles. DEPARTING LAWMAKERS.
