Alexis Romanov, the only son of the former Emperor Nicholas II, and his older sisters, have arrived in Ekaterinburg, according to an Associated Press dispatch from Moscow.

Ekaterinburg is on the "Asiatic side of the Ural Mountains."

The former Emperor and Empress have been Ekaterinburg for several weeks after they were removed from their exile on Tobolsk in Siberia.   They were brought to Ekaterinburg after "the reported discovery of a conspiracy to bring about the escape of Nicholas."

Alexis, who is in ill-health, remained in Tobolsk until he was strong enough to travel.
