    NOTES

      [127] Yuzhny Rabochy (Southern Worker ) -- a Social-Democratic newspaper published illegally by a group of the same name from January 1900 to April 1903; altogether 12 issues appeared. The newspaper circulated chiefly among Social-Democratic organisations in the south of Russia.
        Lenin said of the Yuzhny Rabochy group that it was one of those organisations "which in words accepted Iskra as the guiding organ but in deeds followed their own particular plans and were distinguished for their instability on questions of principle". The group existed until the Second Congress of the R.S.D.L.P. Subsequently the majority of the leading members of the group became Mensheviks.    [p.313]

      [128] Zubatov -- Colonel of the Gendarmes, tried to introduce "police socialism". He set up fake workers' organisations under the protection of the gendarmerie and the police in an effort to divert the workers from the revolutionary movement.    [p.314]
