§ MR. SCHREIBER
asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether he is informed that the Russian Government is granting leave of absence in large numbers to officers of the Russian Army, who avail themselves of it to join the insurrection in the Herzegovina, against the friendly and allied Government of Austria? His Question was, in effect, whether Russia was doing at that time in Herzegovina what it did in 1876 in Servia?
§ SIR CHARLES W. DILKE
No, Sir; we have received no such information, and there is no reason to suppose there is any foundation for the statement.
