NEW YORK, November 2
(Associated i Press) -Bloody
civil war threatens Russia. The
, Majtimilists. indBolslie-Vikis are
going ahead with their plans for
an ' armistice and have ..the sup
port of the- soldiers. At the fronts
there is such a shortage of provi-
flona and the. suffering is bo acute
that it is feared the soldiers ' will
come m and "enter and raid ' the
cities to secure ' what they need.
The, ambassadors of the Allies
are 'jrcpared ,t6;mmediatefy de

armistice, liteitare some at tne

SOLDIERS STARVING ;
Russia is on the ,: verge of "a
bloody civil war, said despatches
received by1 way of Copenhagen.
At the various fronts, - Russian
newspapers, say, . soldiers are with
out food arid. on Northern Pront
they are dying from cold and
hunger, Commanders report that
from all the fronts that supplies
arc exhausted and fear that, goad
ed to desperation by hunger, the
starving soldiers will soon come
in upon the cities and raid them,
Seizing what they need. They are
rapidly getting away from con
trol of their officers.
During the late disorders in
Pctrograd and Moscow and while
the quarrel over government has
gone on, the armies at the fr6ut
have been neglected and 'all but
forgotten except when their sup
port was sought. The inevitable
result, following the cessation of
the (tending of supplies, Was ex
haustion of resources, hunger and
intense suffering with consequent
loss of morale.
With one dissenting vote the
congress of the second army
passed a resolution which gave
approval to the plan for an imme
diate armistice as preliminary to
peace and pledging its support to
the colors of the' Workmen's and
Soldiers. Council Delegates, now
in control, and assurance that in
no event will it lend its support
to Kerensky, was the report
which was received from Petro
grad direct. ' ,
Preparations . for depart urc
from Petrograd were told in des
patches from Ilapar&nda that
reached Copenhagen and which
said, that it had been decided that
in the event of Russia opening

PROTECT AGAINST POSSIBLE RAIDERS y v
It would appear to be the purpose of Japan to prevent the. porta
of Siberia falling intd pro-German hands with the resulting; sehdirig
out of German raiders to prey upon the commerce of the Pacific,
t will be easier to prevent such vessels leaving SibcriArJ. ports. In
he event of pro-Germin control, than it would be to capiore or
lestroy them once'they had left port. : ';--.';i ;,' ' " ;
tions piled up on the docks and
and Vladivostok which railroad
ing moved, imports from both the United States and Japan, . , It is
to be expected that the armies which Japan will send to those two
points will-take adequate precautions, again in case of a separate
armistice or peace,' to see that such supplies and munitions 't may
not reach Germany. , .
MOVE IN DEFENSE OF ALLIES V'
In this way the move of Japan would be made in the. defense
of herself and of. the allies, the latter by preventing munitions to
reach the enemy and of herself in preventing the departure of raid
ers. In the same way it would be in the defense of the commerce,
of the United States and of all other nations whose vessels are now
plying the waters of the Pacific. . ' V'
