NOTES

  [142] The reference is to N. Rozhkov's article "The Present Situation in Russia and the Main Task of the Working-Class Movement at the Present Moment". Another article by Lenin, "From the Camp of the Stolypin 'Labour' Party", is also a criticism of Rozhkov (see pp. 354-59 of this volume).    [p. 313]

  [143] This refers to The Social Movement in Russia ; see Note 57.

    [Note 57:  The Social Movement in Russia at the Beginning of the Twentieth Century -- a five-volume Menshevik publication (four volumes were published) under the editorship of L. Martov, P. Maslov, A. N. Potresov. Plekhanov, who was a member of the original editorial board, left it at the end of 1908 because he disagreed with the inclusion of a liquidationist article by A. N. Potresov in the first volume.]    [p. 315]

  [144] Chambre introuvable -- the name given by Louis XVIII to the French counter-revolutionary Chamber of Deputies, elected after the restoration of the Bourbons in August 1815. Its composition was so reactionary that Louis XVIII, fearing a new revolutionary outbreak, was forced to dissolve it.    [p. 320]

  [145] Lenin is referring to the preface to S. Y. Witte's "The Autocracy and the Zemstvo" written by P. B. Struve (signed: R. N. S.) which he criticised in "The Persecutors of the Zemstvo and the Hannibals of Liberalism" (see present edition, Vol. 5, pp. 31-80).    [p. 323]

  [146] Mymretsov -- a character from G. I. Uspensky's Budka (The Centry Box ) a coarse and boorish type of policeman from an out-of-the-way small town of tsarist Russia.    [p. 324]
