Proclamation signed by Nikola Nikolaievitch, uncle of the murdered Czar is being circulated in the Ukraine calling upon the population to await his return to the Russian throne, the special Jewish Telegraphic Agency investigator who has just returned from Russian learns. The document which is receiving wide circulation in the Ukraine reports General Foch’s visit to Poland and Roumania and emphasizes the activities of General Wrangl in Bulgaria. All this, the investigator learns, is creating a strong impression among the peasants.

The political circles naturally regard that Nikolai’s plans, if such there are, are not serious. Considering the collapse of the as-sited adventures by Generals Wrangl, Denikin and Kolchak, and the failures all these counter-revolutionary leaders met with, it is hardly likely that any uprising now will recruit any strength.
