Must Be Protected or Bol
shevism Will Win. Wil
son Still on League Stuff.
(Special United Press Wire.)
Paris, Jan. 27.-Congress must
settle the great issue if nationalism
versus bolshevism, one of the most
important statesmen attending the
peace conference here said. "There
is no use disguising the fact that na
tionalism is on trial. If nationalism
is unable to prove its case, then hol
shevism wins," he declared.
The statesman declared that ote
of the biggest steps toward checking
the spread of bolshevism will be in
ternational labor legislation, particu
larly laws providing uniform wages
and hours of unemployment.
"Britain is prepared to make real
concessions toward the establishment
of a league of nations as an effectual
international instrument," a member
of the British peace delegation told
the United Press. He particularly
named the African colonies and Meso
potamia as subjects on which the
British are ready to meet the test.
"Our proposal will be to take over
our colonies we won from Germany
entirely on trust, and we would be
strictly accountable to the league of
Wilson said: "The league of na
tions seems necessary to me, both
in reaching conclusions of peace and
in preserving the peace of the world.
Some questions which are not sus
ceptible to competent judgment at
present possibly will need readjust
tnent in the future. We are not the
representatives of the government
but of the peoples. It is insufficient
to satisfying our government; we
must satisfy mankind. It is essential
that armed men be kept in their
harness by civilization. It is less
likely that America will be attacked
by an enemy than some other nations.
The ardor of the United States, there
fore, for a league is not the result of
fear. America will feel that she has
fought in vain if peace is only one of
European sentiment. She wants a
lasting peace for humanity. America
did not enter the war merely as an
intervention in European politics."
The details of the peace settlement
will he worked out by a special com.n
mittee, leaving the supreme war
council free to handle only the biggest
problems and render final decisions,
according to the present plans.
As the various problems develop
committees will be appointed to han
dle all the details. The most impor
tant of these will be the committee
on the league of nations.
Premier Orlando will represent
Italy; Lord Cecil, Great Britain; Sen
ator Bourgeois, France, and Presi
dent Wilson probably will personally
act for the United States:
It is believed that all of the prin
cipal powers will transfer virtually
their whole foreigh offices to Paris
for Work on the various committees,
the personnel of which will be made
up largely of men experienced in in
Now That Europe Is "Fed,"
Another Hundred Million
Proposed for Hungry Peo
ple of Our Own Country.
Washington, Jan. 27.-Having dis
pensed aid to Europe's starving muil
lions, congress will be called on next
week for quick action on the press
ing domestic problems of unemploy
ment. Senator Kenyon and others to
whom appeals for emergency legisla
tion are coming from mayors, gov
ernors, chanmbers of commerce and
plain citizens out of work, will de
mand immediate construction of a
bill creating an emergency public
works board with money to employ
"We have voted a hundred mil
lions to Europe's hungry," said Ken,
you. "Do you refuse to appropriate at
least an eqiual sum to keep thousand,
of Americans from going hungry?"
The Kenyon bill provides a huu
dred million as an emergency fund
to start public works. "Of the money
we spend for food for Europe, much
of which will never be returned to
the public treasury, we do not grudge
it," continued the senator, "but ev
ery dollar used now to put an Ameri
can to work means dividends to
America. Public works provide
prominent public improvement."
Discharged soldiers attended the
funeral of the late William Francis
Matthews, 110 Dunn avenue, Walk
erville this morning. All soldiers in
uniform were invited to be at the
house at 9:30 to march in a body to
St. Lawrence's church and attend
services for their late comtade. After
services the soldiers took a street
car at Park and Main, where ' spe
cial car was waiting to take them
to the cemetery.
Matthews was discharged from the
service Dec. 12 and shortly after his
return to Butte he married Miss
Nonle Murphy. He was the son of
Alderman Matthews of Walkerville
and was one of the most popular
young men of the hill city. He wks

Made Hereabouts. TUnnel
From House to Well.
Seattle, Jan. 27.-A distilling out
fit, consisting of three elaborate and
up-to-date stills, together with new
empty barrels and casks for shipping
the stuff manufactured to its various
'customers," was captured by Matt
Starwich, deputy sheriff, assisted by
Deputy Fred Brown and Gus Rail,
city marshal of Auburu, Friday
night. One of the stills was brought
into the city by Starwich and is in
custody of the sheriff's office in the
Enough "mash" was found in the
place where the capture was made to
have manufactured $40,000 worth of
booze at "wholesale" prices, $30 per
gallon being the "going" quotation
in the "trade" for several months. At
retail prices of 50 cents a drink it
would be worth at least $160,000. An
entire house was devoted to the pur
pose of manufacture. The plant was
operated by three Japanese men and
one Japanese woman. These kere
not captured, but Deputy Starwich
says he will have them in hand soon.
It is the biggest capture since "moon
shining" became the popular di
version of the underworld.
Starwich was "tipped off" a day
or two ago, but he had to proceed
cautiously, as there was danger of
flight of his covey of birds as well as
the chance of a fight at close quar
ters. The place where the stills were
located was about three miles, west, o
Auburn, Tacomaward, and near Al
gona. The stills were planted in a
house, and that the manufacturing
company expected to become an old
and established business was evident
from the fact that the two stills not
brought to the city were neatly set in
bricked up foundations. They could
not be torn out and it will require
the services of a brick mason to do
The house jn which the work was
carried on was tightly sealed as to
doors, windows and cracks, so that
not a ray of light could escape to be
tray the presence of its occupants.
Lamps were present in numbers, as
the manufacturers were wont to per
form all their labors at night.
A tunnel 30 feet long had been
dug front the house to a well and all
refuse was carried out of the house
in this manner. The mash was
placed in an immense press and the
"juice" expressed, then the dry re
fuse was dipposed of as fuel. The
stills had a capacity of 30 sacks of
fine rice at a time. The pressure on
the press was in part furnished by
hanging the sacks on the lever used
for expressing the "juice."
Starwich and his fellows captured
23 barrels of mash, eight sacks of
rice, 42 new five-gallon kegs, 30 new
50-gallon barrels, besides numerous
other paraphernalia used in the bus
The finding of so many new kegs
and barrels indicates the extent of
,operations of this gang of moon
'shiners. Starwich says they were all
fixed for making shipments of from
5 to 50 gallons, and it is evident the
operators have a more or less numer
ons ollentale of users of-their partlc
ular brand of goods. Samples of the
stuff captured show it to be concen
trated to the highest degree, between
130 and 140 proof. This was done
so that it would stand the largest
Starwich expects to have the op
erators in hand before an other 24
hours passes. The raid, as planned,
came off without a hitch.

Remain in Russia to Re

Ludlow and Bisbee Brand.
We extract. the following straight
goods from a handbill being distrib- 1
uted by the socialist party:
The business intrests of America, f
through their newspapers and their I
spokesmen, such as ex-President Taft
and Senator Lodge, are demanding
that the allied troops be kept in Rus
sia till the workers' republic can be
crushed.. They talk about "resto.
ing law and order;" they pretend
that Russia is in a state of chaos;
they have invented "news" of imag
inary atrocities; they have predicted
massacres that never took place. They
have used the same lies against Rus
sia that the aristocrats of Europe
used against the American revolu
tion in 1776 and the French revolu
tion in 1789.
Russia has accomplished the most
peaceful revolution in all history.
France spent 81 years of almost con
stant revolution before her republic
was established. It took the -Ameri
can people seven years of Warfare
and eight additional years of internal
disorder to establish their republic.
Th.e civil war meant four years 'of
fighting and then 10 more years of
The Russian revolution was well
high bloodless. While it was in prog
ress 5,000 Americans reinained in
Russia and not one was hurt.
Why, then, do the American bank

Russia? What are the real "offenses"
of the Russian workers?
The Russian workers' republic has
given 'the' land fo the people." 'lhe

The revolution has now spread to
Germany! The workers of Germany
are ridding themselves of kaiserism,
militarism and capitalism.
The capitalists of America will op
pose the workers" republic of Ger
many with the same weapons of de
ceit and' forgery which: they have
used against Russia. They will de
mand that American soldiers be kept
in Russia and Germany, after peace
has been declared, to drown the two
republics of the workers iltblpod.

Paris, Jan. 27.-King Nicholas,

his little nation should enjoy the
same right of self-determination as
He expressed confidence that the
peace congress will enforce the ap
plication of this principle. In an in
terview with the United Press, King
Nicholas declared that Serbia is at
tempting forcibly to annex Monte
negro rather than join with her in
the formation of a new Jugo-Slav
state. This alleged attitude of Serbia
is believed to have constituted one
of the elements which resulted in a
warning issued yesterday by the su
preme war council, that claims to
territory seized by arms will receive
no recognition at the peace congress.
The principal provisions of the
British scheme include the establish
ment of its findings by public opin
ion rather than supernational "police
force"; some form of disarmament;
cancellation of all treaties which
would interfere with the workings of
