THE ACCESSION OF NICHOLAS II. 11 of Russian Jewry was manifestly out of the question. Even where such an improvement might have been found to tally with the anti- Semitic policies of the Government, it was ruled out as soon as it bade fair to benefit the Jews. Thus, when in 1895, the governor of Vilna, in his “ most humble report” to the Tzar, advocated the desirability of abrogating the Pale of Settlement for the purpose “ of weakening the detrimental influence of Jewry,” since the latter constituted a majority of the population in the cities of the Western region, 1 Nicholas II. penned the following resolution: 2 “ I am far from sharing this view of the governor.” The leaders of Russian Jewry knew full well that the wind which was blowing from the heights of the Russian throne was unfavorable to them, and their initial hopefulness gave way speedily to a feeling of depres-sion. A memorandum drafted at that time by prominent Jews of St. Petersburg, with the intention of submitting it to one of the highest functionaries at the Russian court, mirrors this pessimistic frame of mind: The Russian Jews are deprived of that powerful lever for intel-lectual and moral advancement which is designated as the hope for a better future. They are fully aware of the fact that the high-est authority in the land, influenced by the distorted information concerning the Jews, which is systematically presented to it by officials acting from avaricious or other selfish motives, is ex-ceedingly unfavorable to the Jews. They must resign themselves to the fact that there is actually no possibility of directing the attention of the Tzar and Sovereign to the true state of affairs, and that even those dignitaries who themselves act justly and tolerantly towards the Jews are afraid of putting in a good word for them for fear of being charged with favoritism towards them.
