The action of the Nationalists has probably Jbeen hastened by the Russian intervention at Tabriz and Meshed, but their particular griev- ance is the Shah's violation of his pledges to Jfespeet the Constitution granted by his father. After the Russian occupation of Tabriz last May the British and Russian Governments Jjfeesscd on the Shah the necessity of reviving She Constitution and convoking Parliament. He Agreed to form a Liberal Cabinet, and to con- fjd, to it the preparation of a new electoral larv. ;othing, however, was done. The threat of the Nationalists to march on "the capital was not at first regarded as serious. A fortnight ago, however, it was realised that were in earnest, and the British and Rus- Legations intervened on the Shah's behalf. 'The terms demanded by the revolutionists were .^declared to be inadmissible by the Powers. Negotiations were broken off, and Russian itrool)s were ordered to the Persian capital. The Jtersians, however, reached there first. Street fighting was in progress most of the -4ay.
