POWER BEHIND
RUSSIAN THRONE
Peasant Priest Said to Favor Separ
ate Peace With Germany by
the Czar.
[United Press Leased Wire Service]
NETW YORK, Dec. 27.—"Rasputin,"
the Siberian peasant, priest and con
fessor, reported to be dictator in the
I imperial court of Russia, wants a sep
arate peace with Germany, according
to niiodor. the "mad monk of Russia."
I who at the beginning of the war, was
chaplain of the imperial court of Pet
rograd-
IUiodor recently came before the
public when he brought suit against a
magazine for a breach of contract al
leging the magazine had contracted
to publish articles disclosing affairs
of the Rnsslan court and had then
suddenly annuled the contract.
Rasputin, according to Illlodor, Is
backed by the czarina and other
strong influences in- Petrograd In his
efforts at a separate peace which will
remove Russia from the side of the
allies. A great struggle is being
waged in Petrograd against Rasputin
and upon the victory of the peasant
dictator or his downfall, will remain
I whether Russia continues the war or
not, says Illlodor. Appointment of
Premier Sturmer, alleged pro-German
and advocate of separate peace. Illlo
dor said, was one of Rasputin moves
and the subsequent downfall of Stur
j'mer and the naming of Trepoff as pre
mier, was one of the greatest blows
dealt to the power of the peasant
priest. This change was demanded

"I am informed that a relative of
a high official now in the brokerage
business as a silent partner, Is said to
have profited immensely by advance
information on the president's peace
note.
"I am not In a position to reveal
the name at present, but may do so
at any time.
"I also learned that representatives
of this government In an European
capital profited by this advance in
formation. This is not at all unlikely
as I was told members of our diplo

before the release in this country.
This would have given them ample
