Slovo

 

(The Word), a Russian bourgeois daily newspaper published in St. Petersburg from Jan. 1(14), 1903, to July 5(18), 1909, with a break in publication between July and November 1906. It was the successor to the weekly Otgoloski, which had been published from 1896 to 1902. At first the organ of right-wing zemstvo (district or provincial assembly) delegates, then, beginning in November 1905, of the Octobrist party, Slovo in November 1906 became the organ of the Mirnoobnovlentsy (Party of Peaceful Renovation). Among its contributors were I. N. Efremov, N. N. L’vov, M. A. Stakhovich, Prince E. N. Trubetskoi, and D. N. Shipov. Reflecting the views of the conservative big bourgeoisie and landowners who had become members of the bourgeoisie, Slovo generally supported tsarist policies, although it criticized certain excesses. It clearly opposed the revolutionary movement. Publication ceased in the absence of public support.
