0' Last night a Sumilovsky regiment just returned from fighting
the' Kerensky forces marched through the streets singing patriotic
iongs. Speeches were made on street corners and ihe speakers
declared that Kerensky and his Cossacks had been made prisoners

In Kiev conditions of anarchy continued and a bomb was
hrown into a street car causing a considerable loss of life,

V'VFrdm these" reports government officials take a very gloomy
lew of the situation, With the known declarations of the radical
jovernment for peace and its intention to present a plan of peace
ta Germany it would seem that Russia is completely eliminated
rom the reckoning as a fighting element in the alliance.

joclalistic . elements of fhat. body are preparing to give 'consid
eration to Russian, proposals, next week and will heartily favor the
