to the war. writes in the Berlin
"The passing of sentence on Wilhelm,
the former German Emperor, before an
enemy court woo Id not alleviate the I
danger of a counter-revolution, but
would add to it. Wilhelm would be
made a martyr in the eyes of the Ger?
man public, to whom he would appear
aa a man sentenced, not for this crime
or that, but for being a German, His
popularity suddenly would soar up?

Herr Kautsky is of the opinion that
the Entente powers should not go be- j

New \'ork Tribuno
WASHINGTON, Feh. 3, Occupation
of Vladivostok, headquarters of the
American Siberian expedition, by so?
cial revolutionists was repoi'ted to the
VVar Department to-day by .Major Gen?
eral William S. C rav< s.
The Amorican expeditionary com?
mander said the capture of the city
was effected with little disorder, and
he expressed no roar for the safety of
the 6,000 American soldiers remaining
In confirming an earlier report that,
Vladivostok had been captured by the j
revolutionis'.s. Secretary of War Baker
to-day gave out the following extract;
rom General Graves'! cablegram:
"The revolutionists have just en-;
tered Vladivostok and have charge of
the town. They say thai no one will
be molested unless he has committed
a crime or offense, and then he will
be tried by civil court. They will not ;
try anybody by military tribunal.
Everything indicates orderly behaved,
crowd:-. The Allies are patroling the
streets with the object of protecting!
innocent people and preventing rob?
bery. The platform of the revolution?
ists is to stop civil war and non?
interference with their interne.! affairs
Move Called Local
There was nothing in the dispatch,
Secretary Baker said, to indicate any
connection between the Vladivostok
revolutionists ai i the Bolsheviki. The
opinion of mili ary authorities here is
that the movement ? a local uprising,
without hostile significance for Amer?
ican troops. Tiie grudual withdrawal
of th.e American expeditionary forces
will continue, .-aal Secretary Baker. :
Thus far alo ut 2,500 of the original
command of 8,500 have been removed,
and shipping facilities for the removal
of the remainder were said to be en
route to Vladivostok.
Should the movement in Vladivostok
prove menacing and American troops
were in danger the War Department
would be prepared to act quickly in
effecting their removal. It could draw
on the vessels of '.in- Philippine trans?
port service, which ply between Manila, :
Japan. Chinese and Russian ports, to
transport tiie American troops toi
?.afety. If a Situation of this nature:
should art' they undoubtedly would
be taken to Manila.
The opinion of the War Department
that the uprising is local is not held
by Ludwig C. A. K. Marten?, the Ameri?
can representative of the Russian Sov?
iet Republic. He said what wus trans?
piring in Vladivostok was simply a
repetition of what occurred several
weeks ago in Irkutsk.
.Martens Says Reds Hold City
"Social revolutionists." lie said,;
"were at first reported to have taken
charge of the city, and it was declared j
they had no connection with the Bol?
sheviki. In ?i week or so it was finally
admitted that the Soviets had captured
Irkutsk. 1 think the same situation
prevails in Vladivostok to-day."
.Martens said that the news meant
that. American and Japanese forces
were cut oil' from Vladivostok, as Sov?
iet troops controlled the Trans-Siberian
Railway in various places. A state?
ment from the Soviet bureau here this
afi moon : aid. in part :
"Mr. Martens wishes to assure the
relatives ami friends of all American
soldiers in Russia and Siberia that the
recent dispatches need give them no1
cause for alarm. All Americans who-'
may have been captured by the Soviet,
forces will be treated with the utmost
consideration pending arrangements for j
their safe return."

Hungary to Rise Again, |
Says Former Archduke
JoHoph Points to Charles as the
Rightful King, hut Sees D?n?
ger in Restoring Monarchy
BUDAPEST, Jan. 30 | By The Associa?
ted Press). Former Archduke Joseph 1
sometime referred to as the most popu?
lar member of the Hapsburg family,
re erring to-day to the royalist ten?
dency in Hungary, said, to the corre?
spondent of The Associated Press:
"Charles ia the rightful King of Hun?
gary until the people decide otherwise.
It is a dangerous question to have a
King here when the whole world is in
such a state of revolutionary unrest.
The disorders in Germany may force
the peoplo sooner or later to re?
establish the Hohenzollerns as rulers. !
"Hungary will rise again. Her peo- j
pie are active and intelligent and are
working out a greater destiny. Hun- j
gary will not be. a little state of nine
millions, but. a state of twenty millions,!
of whom twelve millions will be pure |
Hungarians. Hungary's misfortune in |
the past was that she was dominated l
from Vienna and exploited economically
by Austria. I see a bright future for ?
Hungary, if she is independent."
The former archduke is in good
health and is a typical Hapsburg. He i
carries with him the Muff and honest i
simplicity of the soldier and is be?
loved by the people because of his
modest and unassuming manner. He is ?
ever ready to oblige the cause of needy i
petitioners for favor.
Joseph is very cautious in speech :
and reserved in his actions. This ;s '
due, it is asserted, to his desire not
to give occasion for criticism by un?
friendly neighboring nationalities. It
is said that ho is receiving frequent
hints from the Allies to leave Hun-;
A dispatch from Stockholm last Oc?
tober, quoting what were said to be I
unusualy well informed sources, wns
to the effect that former Archduke Jos
eph was spoken of as probably the
next King of Hungary.

- Stokes, was arranging for her bai!,
! fixed at $5,000 by Justice Weeks
Mrs. Stokes Near Collapse
Mrs. Stoker, who told Justice Weeks
she had been il! in bed for several
days, walked slowly from the witness
box and slipped into a chair near
j where Gitlow sat. She seemed ?.?? ak
and near collapse. I) was then Sergeant
Gegan informed her Chicago had tele?
graphed the request that she be held
as a fugitive from justice on the Il?
"I don't, know anything about that."
Mrs. Stokes declared. The detec v?s
gave her time to recover, and after
she had shaken the hand of Gitlow
they accompanied her from the room.
.Magistrate Tobias, in Tombs Cour':.
granted the request of Sergeant Gegan
that Mrs. Stokes be held without bail
pending extradition until February 16

Mr. Stokes obtained live $1,000 Lib?

closed and the papers apparently lock<v'
up lor the night. Mrs. Stokes was
sent, to tne Tombs at 5 o'clock.
Released on Bail
With the prospect of a nigh' in the
Tombs facing his wife, Stokes appealed
to Alexander I. Rorke, prosecutor ol
Gitlow, who communicated with Georg'
J. Lavelle, head of the Bail Bureau.
It was 6:15 o'clock when Warden
John J. Hanley took over Mr. Stokes'
$0,000, and the turnkey opened thi
prison door for Mrs. Stokes. "It was
a very interesting experience," smiled
Mrs. Stokes as she. left the gray build
ing. "I really don't know how
I've been here."
On the witness stand in the Gitlow
trial, Mrs. Stokes had declined to
answer Justice Weeks's inquiry whether
she had signed an application for ad?
mission to t'ue Left Wing .of the So?
Mrs. Stokes previously had admitted
she was for a time treasurer of the
