The Consul at Irkutsk ( Thomson ) to the Secretary of State 1

[Telegram]

Czech staff has just informed me that telegraphic communication with Chita, which was interrupted during the day, was resumed at 5 o’clock p.m. uninterruptedly, and that Semenov has agreed to submit to Kolchak provided Semenov may retain his command. It is believed that Semenov will not be retained.
