Miscellaneous Translations From the Minsk Vedomosti
   Translation from the 15 July 1872 issue of the Minsk Vedomosti.
   
   The Rechitsa District Police Board seeks property and capital belonging to
   the following persons:

   a) Froim Feldman, a deceased Hebrew resident of the town of Yurevich,
   for payment of a fine of 5 rubles 50 kopecks in connection with
   unwarranted abuse of his horse, and

   b) Iosel Pogovsky, a Hebrew, for payment of a fine of 10 rubles for the
   unlicensed sale of wine in a tavern in the village of Veselka. 

***

   From the 15 July 1872 issue of the Minsk Vedomosti.

   The Minsk Gubernya Board directs that all persons under the authority of
   the gubernya, city and district police boards help it track down property
   and capital belonging to the following persons:

   a) Khaim Leibov Turkin, a Hebrew, for payment of 10 rubles and 80
   kopecks in fines;

   b) Parakov Voinilovich, a citizen, for payment of 3 rubles and 40 kopecks
   in customs duties;

   c) Peter Pervov, for payment of 40 kopecks in customs duties, and 1 ruble
   and 50 kopecks in fines for (napican -- forging???) an inventory on "simple
   paper"; *

   d) Boruch Ioselev Turovsky, a Hebrew Kholmech resident, for payment of
   2 rubles and 40 kopecks in customs duties; and

   e) Countess Sophia Grabovsky, for payment of arrears in customs duties.

   * I think the phrase I'm translating as "simple paper" refers to forged notes
   or the Russian equivalent of bad checks.

   The auction will be held at 11 o'clock in the morning and is authorized to

   the auction can see sale documents on the terms at the District
   Chancellery Court.

   * "Peretorzhko" comes up often in auction notices. I think it's a technical
   term referring to a particular type of auction. Any Russian auctioneers out
   there who can help me????

   NOTES:

   1 The word I translated "zone" could also mean "allotment." I'm not sure
   whether it refers here to a geographic area or the timing of the call-up. I.e.,
   maybe there was a first batch called up in January, a second in March, etc.

   2 The "E s in" typos could just be a problem with the copy used to
   microfilm, or the process. If not, maybe it's an example of clever bribery at
   work. E.g., instead of paying the typesetter to risk prison by taking your
   name off the wanted list, try to persuade him to garble it.
