A general strike of all classes of workers in the Chinese Eastern zone including railway employees has already begun and will it is feared soon be in full extent, brought about by the refusal of an ultimatum given to General Horvat by the Social Revolutionists under the authority of Priamur Zemstvo, demanding that he and all the present régime abdicate at once all power. We shall try to keep Czechs moving. Everything quiet at the present moment.
