I thought together, seems to me about to reap its reward. All Russia is aflame with tha fa,.i , .. ui icvuu against j tyranny. Suffrage seems to be almost within the grasp of the people. An up- j rising, with which nothing in the his- j tory of the empire is liable to compare, i is now threatening Russia. The seed that has been so often sown is at last sprouting. I feel that my own labors ' were not in vain. My pen is working j now more vigorously than for years and my heart beats nervously as I anxiously yearn for that first hour of freedom that all Russians will enjoy when that awful reign of tyranny is destroyed." Certain that the hour of emancipa tion of his countrymen is at hand, Dr. Nicholas Russel, once a prominent resident of this city, and now work ing night and day in the Far East to realize an ambition that he has fos tered for years, thus writes to a fel low practitioner in his former place of abode. The news from St. Petersburg lately has frequently mentioned the name of Russel. It has told of the secret issu ance of his propagandas that have kindled the fire of hatred among his countrymen and stirred them to revo lutionary action. First he was skirt ing along the southern borders of Rus sia. Next he was compelled to seek refuge in Japan, where we have since learned of his work among the Russian prisoners of war, who, thirty-thousand strong, several days ago demonstrated their sympathy for the revolutionists in Russia by singing the "Marseillaise" and waiving red banners bearing the symbols of liberty, as they marched through the detention camps. Few of the readers of the dispatches from the Far East have probably rec ognized in this propagator of revolt the same Dr. Nicholas) Russel, a distin guished and cultured oculist, who practiced for a number of years in this city, with his offices in the Phelan building, and was for a time foremost in a local fight against the Greco-Russian church, that was pro ductive of a nasty scandal and result ed in the recall of Bishop Vladimir. He had probably been forgotten by all but those with whom he continued to correspond and those with whom he was engaged in the Greco-Russian church controversy in the early '90's. Then as now he was imbued with the bitterest hatred for the Russian mon arch and publicly displayed his feel ings. He had been forced to suffer some of the cruelties practiced by the Government upon its subjects and had finally fled to escape imprisonment in the dreaded bastile of Tyumen. Dr. Russel is a nobleman by birth, a fact he concealed after his arrival in San Francisco until the outbreak of the troubles with the opposing faction in the Greco-Russian church, of which he was at one time a member. He had been a graduate of the University of Kieff, where as history has shown the student bodv gradually absorbs the j theories of the free born man and on public occasions vents its feeling3 against monarchists government. Dr. Russel, as many others have done, in curred the anger of the Russian au thorities by his seditious utterances at a student meeting and his arrest was ordered. Aided by a sister, then but 16 years old, he escaped from Kieff one night, disguised as a Mahomme dan, and fled to Roumania. I For her loyalty to her brother Dr. (Russel's sister was condemned to ira prisonment for five years, and when he next heard from home the estate of his father, who had turned against the authorities because of the brutal treatment of his children, had been i confiscated. From Roumania the U-ounsr fugitive went to Bulgaria, thence to Greece, where he married the woman who has since shared with him the perils attending his frequent journeys to the Russian borders, and iw thon went to Paris. At the end of several years' practice as a physi cian in the French capital the doctor and his wife came to San Francisco. Mrs. Russel was an attractive woman, who rapidly surrounded herself with new-made friends, who will readily recall the happy social events they en joyed as the guest of this entertain ing hostess. It was early in 1890 that Dr. Russel first gained prominence through the charges he made against Bishop Vladi mir of the Greco-Russian churcn on Powell street. They were preceaea uy - - - ' trsr lowed by Russel's excommunicauon. Bv this time two factions in the church had become arrayed against each other and a bitter war ensued, during which the edifice caught fire one night and was rartially destroyed. This in cident provoked more bitter crimina tions and for a time it was feared that blood might be spilled. Bishop Madi mir was arrested on serious charges, but these were never pressed. Libei suits were also instituted. About this stage of the controversy By W. ' O --rr 0 DR. NICHOLAS RUSSEL. s)(iQ$& 005X05;0 JOSOSOS the Russian Consul, who had been dragged into the affair, took sides with the Bishop and finally published an attack upon Dr. Russel. He brand ed the doctor as a nihilist and charged him with being a fugitive frm his native country. In a scathing retort. Dr. Russel referred to the Consul as being beneath him in social rank and unworthy of recognition and in evi dence of this charge he signed his re ply with his true name, thus furnish- nig io me pfopie me Jirst iiitimaLion - . i j 1 I . - . . . that he was a nobleman by birth. Meanwhile Dr. Russel had carried his fight against the Bishop of the Greco- Russian church to the High Proctor of the holy synod at St. Petersburg, who was requested to recall Vladimir One day, while Dr. Russel and his pro fessional partner were engaged in their office in the Phelan building he was awaited upon by two of Bishop Vladi mir's friends, who asked for an inter view writh the doctor. Adjourning to another room the visitors made an of- fer of $12,000 to Russel if he would cease his fight against the Bishop, Look5g his vi"i'ors steadily in the eye the cnetor Tf -ied in a voice that clearly expressed his indignation: "Tell your Bishop that this fight is one of principle. All the gold the holy synod has stored in its vaults in St. Petersburg will not sway me in this affair. Vladimir must go." Not a long. while after this incident the recall of the Bishop came from St. Petersburg and three weeks later Vladimir was superseded by Archman- , mj ii,wim iifciao OMWIlii until iHt, iihib .

To the majority of the local Russians who were with Dr. Russel in this fight against Vladimir the recall of the latter was regarded as a great victory for the doctor, es X'ecially in view of the fact that he was a fugitive from home and was known to be industriously planning to overthrow the existing dynasty of the empire. The doctor had always maintained that the education of his countrymen,, , y v,s t t . ..7.1 . -. .11 T . : . - . 4-V. n nuuiu eveiiiuany unug lo iiiciii uic freedom that they had long prayed for and it was upon this theory that he .' was working in the early '90's in this , city. He scorned the principles of ni- , hilism and anarchy, declaring them to ' be a menace to the future welfare of the people and repeatedly expressed his opposition to their plots in the literature that was issued at regular j intervals by him. To the Russian, who had become a fugitive from his country for other political reasons, however, the doctor was most generously disposed, and it was seldom that his house on Cali- fornia street, near Polk, was not af- fording shelter to some homeless coun- tryman. It was in that house that Dr. Russel pursued his untiring efforts to - ward inciting revolt among his people against the tyranny of the Russian monarchy. He wrote continuously on reform matters, and through friends of his cause in Roumania, Bulgaria and Aus tria this literature was smuggled into Russia and secretly circulated among SAN FRANCISCO, CAL. 906 MARKET ST., 0S00 the peasantry. It also reached St. Petersburg; it was circulated in Mos cow, Odessa and Warsaw; it was scat tered through the provinces of the Steppes and the isolated Amur dis trict; it found its way into Poland and even to Koshk in the Trans-Caspian provinces, and was read by the un happy people of Khios in Central Asia and of Bokhara. Education was the constant cry of the persevering Dr. Nicholas Russel. His slogan was taken up by his secret followers at home, who were wont to occasionally write him encouragingly of the progress of his good wyork. A year or so later found the cause of Russia's freedom being advocated strenuously among certain classes in this country and eventually "the Amer ican friends of Russia," as they now call themselves, and among whom are Julia Ward Howe, Charles W. Folke and other notables of the East and West, lent their assistance, morally at least, to the educational cause. Dr. Russel's life in San Francisco had not been prolifie of much profes sional practice, not that his practice I UUL UC La U.TC ilia dVLiVC COL 111 Lil. ! affairs of Russia made the cause of his unfortunate countrymen the absorbing theme of his mind. His constant con tributions of money, in various sums, to the people of his race who sought j d ft Ber,oua drain Qn ' his income. AC times he was penniless, j but the fact did not seem to disturb either him or his wife, for their senti ments were one in all questions that related to the welfare of Russian sub jects. It was not an infrequent ex perience for Dr. Russel to give his. last dollar to a. Russian fugitive. He gave as he had it and trusted to the mor row for assistance for himself and wife. In the latter part of the "90's Dr. Russel and his wife removed to Ha- j here h wJ h the assurance cf a lucrative employment, believed that his iife's work could be pursued under equally if not better conditions than in this city. Settling in a modest home but a few miles from the base of the volcanic Maur.a Loa he frequently, for a time, corresponded with his old friends in San Francisco, to whom he : confided many of the details of the I inner workings of his great scheme to promote revolution in Russia. Finally i his letters ceased, and soon the name ! of Russel became a matter of memory i with those who had been associated ! with him in this city, j Early in March, 1901, a steamer from i Honolulu brought the news that Dr. J Russel had been elected a member of the first Territorial Senate, of which i he had been chosen president. With his love for agitation he had drifted ! into politics in the islands and had ; been persuaded to enter the Senatorial ! contest, in which he was successful. As '. president of the first Senate, however, 'his career was a short one. His posi : tion prohibited him from taking an active part in the debates, as he ea ' gerly desired, and finally, when the Senate was disturbed by a heated con troversy over some matter of state, the doctor suddenly resigned the presi dent and, taking his place among the other members of the legislative body, he was daily found in the midst of the exciting oratory on the floor. But the doctor, still wedded to his revolutionary theories, soon tired of Hawaiian politics and retired from the Senate and was again lost track of by his former acquaintances in San Fran cisco. Four months ago his friends in this city were surprised by the receipt of a letter from the doctor in which he referred to the approaching revolu tion in Russia, and predicted its out break would mark the closing of the Japanese-Russian war. At that ti-ne he was in Japan, endeavoring in ov.-ry possibly way to communiev.e w,ih Russian prisoners of war and n rouse wi-h:n them the spirit of revolution. 1: was impossible, of course, for -ii:n to reach the soll'ers within the Russian 'me? but infection was ueing ai'-i''- Pli.ncd among those men from an en t .e'.v different source. -;ies of Dr. Ruwl were ??-n!y en ,ed in th-n w.-rk at various points in "."s?ii.
