Nicholas to be replaced by infant son?

July 18, 1905

According to the New York Times and other news sources, a prominent rumor regarding Nicholas II of Russia is current in St. Petersburg.  A large party of the Zemstvoists and Doumaists, now in Moscow,
"are in favor of the proclamation of the deposition of Emperor Nicholas, and the establishment of a Regency for the infant Czarevitch under four Grand Dukes."

The four grand dukes were not named.  Due to the alleged rumors, the meeting of the All-Russian Zemstvoist and Doumaist Congress, which was scheduled for tomorrow, has now been banned.
