Horrors Worse Than Kishineff
Charged Against Russia To-day
Unparalleled Conspiracy to Crush the Jews Alleged to Be Organized to Cover

of "The nr."
SINCE the destruction of the Tern
pie In Jerusalem the Jewish
people have had no darker page
In their history than that which
the Russian Government Is wrltlnc
to-day. Six million Jows. one-half of
th Jewish people throughout the
world, are belns persecuted, hounded,
humiliated, tortured, starved. Thou
sands of thorn have been slaughtered.
Hundreds of thousands of Jews, old
men, women and children, are being
driven mercilessly from town to town
driven by the Government, attacked
by the troops of their' own country,
plundered' and outraged.
Upward ot 400,000 Jows are Achtlng

heroes M to InrRe that the Uusslan
cencor has commenced to suppress
their Jewish names.
The horrors of Kishineff and Homel
and the pogroms that were organized
In hundreds of Russlun towns on the
earno day attracted universal attention
and were condemned by the entire
civilized world because those pogroms
ere made In times of peace.
The .situation of the Jews In Russia

pulsions, the executions of Jews

p.raey against the f ntlre Jewish pop

organized In order to cover nnd excuse
the demoralization and defeats of tho
llujsian troops and to make It lm
pnjslhle for the Jews to get recog

the war is ended.
The Relglans were ruined, massa

by his newspaper in Kusila would
not do In this country: that he must
conduct his campaign hero upon dif
ferent lines If he would win the sym
pathy of the American people for
Russia. So he Hatters the American
people and denies the atrocities thai
are committed by the Russian Gov
ernment against the Jews.
I met M. Syro'myatnlkoff In Wash
ington last January. I nsked him
about the reported atrocities against
the Jews in Russia and about the
prospects of the Jewish people secur
ing human rights In Rursla at the
close of the war. I asked him whether
ho thought the Russian Government
would permit a commission to inves
tigate the reported outrages In tho
Polish provinces and I expressed the
opinion that Mnce Prime Minister
Goremykin was so sure that the pog
rom reports were "nonsense," the Rus
sian Government should welcome such

On January 20 I received a cable
gram from-the Russian Prime Minis
ter .M Goremykin, which read as fol
lows: "Reports Jewish pogroms in Polish
The Russian Premier's cablegram

letters that reached America from
Ituss.an Poland letters from eye
v.'ltnesfo a?d relatives of victims of
these pdiyroms. Oeorg Brandes, the
Kret lianlsh author, had already
written his masterly essay on the Jew
th pogroms In the Polish provinces.
On February 9, 1916, M. Sazonov,
th Russian Minister of Foreign Af
fairs declared In the Duma:
"Among the malevolent Inventions
"cure reports of Jewish pogroms
"huh Russian trooii are alleged to
li'ivn organized, I selso this oppor
tunity of speaking In the parliamen
tary tribune to deny this calumny
categorically, for If the Jewish popu
litiun In tho theatre of war Is suffer
IftS. that Is an Inevitable evil, since
tliu inhabitants of the regions where
tho hostilities nro proceeding always
ha' o i,(.(.n severely tried."

Ff' s Uyromyatnll'nff, the editor of
th now defunct Hoiilya, the Russian
fmi-ofilciat organ, which waa known
tr i(h reactionary and antl-Jewlih
I'Cillnei, M. Syromyatnlkoff seems to
A Russian Prime Minister always
tells the truth. I travelled through
the J'ollah provinces recently. It Is
true'hat Jews are executed there. The
Poles denounce the Jews ns spies to
the Russian authorities and the Rus
slan troops, having no time to Inves
tigate matters, Rlmply shoot them
down or hang them."
Concerning the prospects for the
Jew? of Russia after the war, he said:
"The Jews are on trial now. They
are acquitting themselves splendidly.
They are loyal and they are brave.
Although the Czar has made no prom
ises to Improve their condition after
the war he will probably do some
thing for them In recognition of their
services In the war. I have no au
thority to say anything definite, on
this subject. At any rate, I believe
that the Czar will leave the qutlon
of Jewish rights for the Imperial
Duma to decide."
M. Syromyatnlkoff thus treats the
accounts of the Russian pogroms hi
a signed statement published In
"My American friends ask me: 'Is
It true that the Russian Government
Is as cruel and oppressive as it Is rep
resented to be by certain American
papers? Is It true that the victory of
Russia In this war would mean tho
growth of aggressive Pan-Slavism and
a menace to Western civilization? Is
It true that the Russian soldiers In
dulge themselves In hanging Jews by
the hundreds and In violating their
wives and daughters? Is It true that
the Russian peoplo are but a host of
barbarians?' These questions prove to
me how much American public
opinion is Interested In all things Rus
lan and how scarce aro tho sources
from which Americans can get trust
worthy Information about real Rufsl.i.
"I know that the horrible sstnrlra of
the alleged atrocities of the Russian
soldiers and otllccrs against Jews in
Poland come here from Berlin, but to
believe In them I would like to have
some verified material from the other
side too, si as to Juilgn each separate
case. I was on the Polish front dur
ing the months of September and
October nnd 1 visited a lot of towns
and villages letween the old Austrian
frontier and Warsaw.
"The Polish peasants used to tell me
stories of Jews who spied for Germans
and served them as guides. But the
only reason which they could give me
for their accusations waa that they
had seen and heard tho Jews talking
German with the German soldiers and
otllcers. That is true, inasmuch as
every Jew speaking Yiddish, a cor
rupted German of the seventeenth
century, can be understood by a Ger
man and can understand a German
speaking modern Germnn.
"I do not know how many Jews
were court-martlalled by tho Russian
military authorities, but I know that
very many of them were shot and
cruelly treated by Germans."
Prime Minister Goremykin called
tho pogrom reports "nonsense"; Min
ister of Foreign Affairs Sazonov
branded such reports as "malevolent
Inventions," nnd M. Syromyatnlkoff Is
trying to minimize these ntrocltlcs by
"1 do not know how many Jews
were court-martlalled by the Russian
military authorities, but I know that
very many of them were shot and
cruelly treated by Germans."
These statements are made by Rus
sian statesmen for the purpose of In
fluencing public opinion outside of
Russia. The speeches made bv two
members of the Duma, Kerensky and
Ohkeldze, in answer to M, Sazonov
enumerating the pogroms and atroci
ties against the Jews were suppressed.
Not a line waa published In the Rus
sian or the foreign prewi about the
statements of these courageous mem
bers of the Duma.
In the course of his speech In the
Imperial Duma In answer to M,
Sazonov Deputy flikeldzp said:
"The rlifht of nationalities to develop
freely Is proclaimed here; we hear of
the liberation and unification of
Poland, of the liberation of tho south
ern Slavonians and so forth; tho
samo time the old policies of oppress
ing nationalities nnd of Inciting na
tionalist passions are pushed to un

and deeds stands out In boldest relief

nation. Hundreds nf thousands of

"Not satisfied with this, the servants
of tho reaction nro persistently and

nnd libels against the Jewish people,
These policies hnvo already led, In
regions nearest tho theatre nf war, to
the shedding of u sen of lilooil and to

of the peaceful Jewish population."
This Is what a Russian member of
Though the Russian censorship Is
sflcter Jhan ever before, there arrive
"iero from time to time letters contain
ing descriptions of the horrors experi
enced 'by the Jews of Russia during
this war. Recently I received a strik
ing note bearing; the postmark ot
Minsk, Russia, and the stamp of the
ccutor who apparently approved It.
In it was the following tragic plen:
"DtAn Mr. Bernbtwn: Wo have
read In the newspapers that you heard
about the Jewish massacres In Poland.
You cannot Imagine how the Cossncks
nre plundering our brethren. They are
ruining us. I come from Poland, where
I was plundered by our troops, the
Cossacks. The authorities are send
ing Innocent old Jows men and
women to Siberia. We have written
you many letters from Poland about
our troubles, but you are not getting
"Dear brethren, have mercy on the
six million Jews In Russia and take
our pnrt! Ask the Russian Ministers
why we are clng tortured so merci
lessly. Our children are slaughtered
In the Russian army. "We are con
tributing large sums of money too.
But we are attacked from all sides.
We have no rights. We are driven
from the villages. Wherever they can
find filth they cast It upon us.
"O Lord, make an end to our suffer
ings! We have no strength to endure
them any longer. This letter U written
with tenrs and blood. I wanted to
write much more, but I am sure that
such a letter would not reach you.
"From a Polish Sufferer,
In 1912, while I was travelling In
Kurope as special correspondent for
Tub Sunpat Sun, I visited the Russo
German frontier towns, Netistadt
Scherwlndt, my birthplace. The peace
ful, prosperous little towns, pic
turesque and quaint, bore a holiday
aspect. The annual fair had brought
out the population to the squares,
where the merchnnts and the farmers
bargained and the youths and maidens,
attired In their Sunday clothes, spoke
bashfully nnd playfully In front of the
cathedral In tho centre of the town,
Their merry laughter, their flashing
eyes, the partl-colored dresses of the
girls, and the 'carefree spirit that
seemed to permeate the atmosphere
presented nn Idyllic scene.
Now these two frontier towns are no
more, having been practically wiped
off the face of the earth. Twice these
towns were In Russian hands, and
twice they were recaptured by tho
Germans. The fields and the homes
were destroyed, the people were either
killed or driven away or exiled to
The following extracts from a letter
written recently by one of tho In
habitants of Neustadt to her brothers
In South Carolina are characteristic
for their pathos and their simplicity
"You must have received the last
Russian postals I sent you by this
time. For the past two weeks no mall
has left our town, but fortunately I
had a chance to send them to Wllna,
"Tho German army is In our midst
again. You know the German soldiers
were here once before, away back In
the fall, for several weeks, At that
time, however, the Russians returned
on their way to Germany. Now the
Germans have driven them back as
far as Kovno.
"I could tell you much, my dear
brothers, very much, but I havo lost
my spirit. I havo become almost
hnrdened to every form nf misery.
Thero havo been times when I would
have given a great deal to be able to
write you a few words. Then I was
not nlluwed to do It and now it seems
to me that ou will never realize from
mere lifeless words what Is happening
"1 think the newspapers cannot
begin to know what we have endured,

what we have seen and heard. No per
son can appreciate what has been
going on here. Streams ot Innocent
blood have been shed. No one can
Imagine the agony that the Russians
have Inflicted upon ui.
"How can I begin to describe these
scenes as I should like to portray them
to you? I have not the power. I wish
you could havo our story published
In tho American newspapers (If It Is
permitted). We should write and write
of our experiences and never oease.
1 think In America they must know
something of the Russian atrocities.
"Still In such an enlightened coun
try as America the people will scarcely
bellevo that such things could happen
In tho twentieth century. But It Is
a great wonder too that such a world
war Is tolerated and no effort Is made
to check It. From afar they watch so
much Innocent bloodshed, so many
young lives shattered. They don't
ecim to mind.
"It appears that the world has
grown accustomed to horror and
crime: that It does not understand, It
does not realize how great and heinous
these outrages are that are being com.
mittcd on the battlefields. We have
thrown all sense of shame to the winds
nnd aro sinking deeper nnd deeper
Into mire and crime.
"If you could only see what has be
come of the beautiful East Prussia,
what the ruthless Russians have made
of It Just ns If a wild boar had been
turned loose In a rich vineyard. What
he can he devours and the rest he
must drag with him. And If he cannot
do this he tramples unon all the
lovely vines and digs them tip by the 1
roots. When he Is done no one would
ever dream that a beautiful garden
once grew them
"No, even this Is not a fair com
parlson. It Is true tho Russians be
haved like wild beasts. We had
enough outrages of our own to endure
at their hands, but wo almost forgot ,
our sorrows when, night after night,
we saw hundreds of fires across the
Prussian border. Every evening the
sky would bo turned Into a huge
blazing sheet, Just as If the whole j
world were enveloped In flames. What ,
was not burned was plundered.
"They used to bring their booty
over to Poland and sell It here. The
large, tine Prussian cows which cost
at least 400 marks were sold for IB
rubles. Horses that surely were worth
1.000 marks the Cossacks nnd the sol
diers sold for 20 or 30 rubles.
"Among the Russian soldiers there
were often good men who used to tell
us, with tears In their eyes, of the
ntrocltles they had witnessed In East
Prussia. They would say that what
happened beggared description. There,
men were not going to war, but to
plunder Many a poor woman was
robbed nnd left destitute with her
little children. The unfortunate vic
tims were not allowed to leave the
ruined cities. They could not even
cross their fields because the Russians
would declare them spies and that
meant they were shot.
"The results tf such accusations
one con easily Imagine. Through the
c'ty of Neustadt droves of little chil
dren were driven In the most bitter
frosts. The soldiers beat with their
guns those who were weak and could
not march quickly. Then, too, the
soldiers are free to rob the property
of the Germans who are driven Into
exile. Many of them even brag that
they cut off the fingers of German
boys so that "they could not go to the
front to help their accursed Wllhelm.'
One could soon grow mad from the
stories the soldiers told. Words fall
me. The wounds are still unhealed.
They wring my heart.
"A whole drove of soldiers and offi
cers came, and filled our house and
our yard. They demanded ea;gs, butter,
meat, &c. They won t take no' for
an answer. For them we nuif pro-
vide everything. And when we place
before them on tbe table all the food
that we can scrape together In the
house we have to taste e,erythlng
"'You havent by any chance put
poison In the food, have you?' they
cry. 'You false, treacherous spies!
You are not above any villainy. Just
tasto It yourself first!' That Is thu
thnnks we get for our trouble.
"When they slaughtered our sheep
In the fall, nnd mother begged them
to leave a few, the soldiers answered:
" 'W hat are you standing around
here for? If you like we'll cut your
throat too, as we're going to do after
the war. Then you will seo what you'll
get for selling your Fatherland to
"And because of this suspicion they
hanged thousands of Innocent Jew's
and sent many more to Siberia,
Whenever they suffer defeat they re
new their accusations. Many Jews
are missing In Neustadt. Some have
gone to the great beyond; others are
pining In prisons. Many have been
exiled to Archangel.
