An encoded message sent to the New York newspaper, the Trumpeter, from one of its overseas reporters reveals a plot by a cell of dedicated nihilists. Future assassination attempts against leaders of Russia and the UK, as well as the imminent attack on the King of Spain, were discussed. Most worrisome is reference to something happening in the States. The Secret Service is informed and it in turn contacts Culpeper Zandtt to get the help of the International Bureau.
