Former Czar not dead

June 26, 1918

The New York Times is reporting that there "is no foundation for the persistent rumors" that the former Emperor, Nicholas Romanoff, "has been assassinated.  The report is based on a dispatch from the Exchange Telegraph in Moscow, which was sent on June 21.

Interesting that the assassination rumors were already in full play a month or so before he and the others actually were murdered.
