Chapter Summary

The Russian telegraph-agency accurately informs the Russian citizen of whenever a petty shop is robbed, of how many roubles are stolen and of just how many expropriators are hanged for the crime - yet this agency uttered not a single word about the grandiose expropriation conducted by the Urals possessional factories' owners a year and a half ago. And as with every expropriation from the pockets of the people, this one was conducted with the help of secret and other advisors behind 'closed doors'. In this case, the robbery is so obvious that no fig-leaf can cover it up: with their 'performance', the robbers have put themselves in the dock. We must make every effort so that the campaign will lead to the greatest possible discrediting of our gang of expropriators - and of their protectors 'by the grace of God' - in the eyes of the people of Europe.
