There has just been received in
the United States a new document
from Russia, the importance of which
everyone will recognize. It is the
official position of the menshevik so
cial democratic party of Russia, rela
tive to the counter-revolutionary
movement there and in the neighbor
ing states, the present condition in
Russia, the necessity of speedy rec
ognition of Russia due to the entente
blockadb, the inevitable outbreak of
renewed and intensified terrorism
which will follow further allied mili
tary intervention, and an appeal to
the proletariat of the world to urge
their governments to reach an agree
ment with soviet Russia.
The official document is made pub
lic to the world through the Paris
Humanite, the semi-official publicity
agency of the soviet republic. The
text of the manifesto as published in
The menshevik social democratic
party, in spite of the declarations by
which it has hitherto seemed to re
nounce its policy of opposition to the
regime of the soviet government still
confronts the latter with an attitude
of hopeful neutrality. This, however,
does not prevent the central commit
tee of the party from issuing the fol
lowing manifesto against the policy
of the allied in Russia:
"In spite of the fact that the Le
nine government (word missing)
consents to take part in the Princes
Island conference and offers to the
allied governments a peace based
upon the payment of loans, the re
nunciation of revolutionary propa
ganda and the satisfaction of the eco
nomic interests of the allies by means
of concessions and even territorial
concessions, the allied governments
still continue to hold over the head
of revolutionary Russia the Damocles
sword of military intervention, still
continue to nourish the hopes of the
Russian counter-revolutionists, and
still continue to strangle the country
"Confronted with the refusal of the
of Koltchak, of Krasnov, and the so
cialist Tschaikovski, traitor to the
revolution of (word missing). Rus
sia demands, if the entente does not
wish to play absolutely the role of a
declared enemy of the Russian rev
olution, that is establish diplomatic
and economic relations with soviet
government and accept the proposi
tion to settle peacefully litigious
"Nevertheless, the preparations for
a military campaign against Russia
continue. French and English mili
tary missions are seen everywhere.
The (word missing) organize coun
ter-revolutionary Russian forces, oc
casioning by their presence all sorts
of inhuman measures of repression,
shootings, hangings and tortures.
"At the same time with the direct
approbation of the Clemenceau gov
ernment, the Polish republic, with
Paderewski.at its head, monopolized
from the day of its birth by Polish
clericals and nationalists, is prf'pa'
ing to furnish considerable military
forces to strangle revolutionary Rues
sia. After having concluded an alr
mistice with the Czechs and the
Ukrainians, after having obtained,
thanks to the presence of the allies
in Germany, the authority to pass its
troops through territories occupied
by the Germans, reactionary Poland
is preparing to realize its plans to an
nex Lithunian, White Russian and
Ukrainian territories as a reward for
the role it played as 'gendarme for
the counter-revolutionary bourgeois
"The arrival of varsovie ann e-ou
lens and the principal leaders of the
counter-revolutionary policy of the
allies in Russia shows sufficiently
what the forces are which inspire the
Polish nationalists. By means of a
similar reward the reactionary gov
ernment of Finland expects to obtain
the conquest of Petrograd and all the
territory bordering upon the Gulf of
"If we add to all these appetites
the RIumanians, who for a long time
have been consumed with the desire
to make Odessa their port of com
merce, and the 'patriotic' treaty of
Admiral Koltchak with Japan, by
which he ceded to that government
control over the routes to the Orient,
it becomes clear that the aggressive
plans of the imperialists with regard
to the Russian revolution have in
view a new dismemberment and a
new pillage of Russia, and the re
newed subjection of the Russian peo
ples to the domination of their most
reactionary enemies, foreign and do
"Laboring manrse' of Hiusiia will
defend themselves to the bitter end
against this prospective dismember
ment and against the forces of social
reaction which only hope to secure
power by the aid of the Polish, Fin
nish, Rumanian and Japanese reac
"The establishment of order by
such means will only result in the
shedding of new oceans of blood and
will end in destroying a country al
ready sufficiently tortured. But a
new dismemberment of Russia and
the restoration by foreign (word
missing) of the police, the landlords,
and the capitalists will never be ac
cepted by the working masses of Rus
sia, who by a series of new (word
missing) will reconquer their liberty
and their national unity. Such dis
memberment. however, is the end
which the European bourgeoisie is
striving to attain. . Do the French
borgeoisie desire that the strong
sympathies which the Russian peo
ple have for them shall be destroyed?
Yet that is what will happen the day
the Russian people acquire the con
viction that it is the French repub
lic which directs the campaign of the
landlords and capitalists of Poland,
Finland and Rumania, whose desire
is to restore in Russia the abhorrent
ancient empire and to pillage its ter
"Will the proletariat of western
Europe consent that these reaction
ary governments created in the states
resussitated or reinforced by the
world war, after having crushed,
thanks to the white guard, their own
workers shall be commissioned as in
tfdhationat gendarmes to strangle
the wdtk'itik ., flask', o the. entire
world? Will the proletariat consent
that the armies of Paderewski, Bra
tania and Malannerheim shall become
the armed police force of .this holy
alliance of capitalists who wish to
make the league of nations a league
of imperial brigands?
"These are the questions that loy
al democratic Russia p.beents~ ito' dih
public opinion of the entirq tFgrl41 ti
tells the world once more that in
protesting with all its enetogy tgainst
foreign military intervention it
speaks as the representative of that
portion of the working class of Rus
sia which proposes the basis of the
bolshevik regioe!l ; di sasirous to so0
cialist polity. (Editor's Note-The
French text reads: '* * * la partw
de la classe ouvriere russe qui s'op
pose aux bases du regime bolchevik
funeste a la pblitique socialiste.')
"Its protest against foreign mili
tary intervention and against the en
deavors of, the reactionary Russian
arises from its belief that such an
intervention, and the refusal of the
allied governnlts to come to an un111
derstanding with soviet Rtussia, will
only serve to prolong and intensify
the crisis Which is killing Ihe people.
This protest conimes from the convic
tion that the counter-revolutiowary
mobilization cannot fail to i:icentuate
the terrorist tendencies of the work
ing masses. On tile contrary, give to
Russia the possibility of develop
ing itself in peace, suppress thi block
ade which is lllmohering her -these
are the mneasures which will inevitab
ly result in arresting at their base
'the terrorist tendencies by giving to
those elements of the working class
not psychologized by maximalist and
anarchistic illusions the means to
successfully fight for the purifica
tion of the political regime of soviet
Russia, for the re-establishment of
political liberty, and for the triumph
of an economic policy corresponding
to the social conditions of our coun
"The menshevik social democratic
party makes an appeal to all social
ist parties and to all labor unions for
an agreement by the entente govern

"The social denmocratic party pr1e
sents its most cordial felicitations
for the decision reached by the so
cialist parties (at Berne) to send a
delegation to Russia to study the sit
uation of the country, and it hopes
that the arrival of the authorized
representatives of the western so
cial democracies will bring to the
Russian proletariat a moral aid es
sential in its attempt to find an
escape from its intolerable situation.
"The central conluitttee of the so
cial democratic party firtmly holpes
that the active intervention (of Ilie
international proletariat will pirotect
the Russian revolution firoll the dan

Flour is now selling for a higher
price than at any time tluring the
war, when it was so scarce we had
to use substitutes at iiuch cxhoi
bitant prices. Flour will he higher
-it is advancing. In reading a gov
ernnient bulletin a few days ago we
read as follows: "Commlercial stores
of wheat three times as large as a
year ago March 1st." In talking
with a leading miller regarding ad
vancing prices lie stated that "wheat
*is so scarce we are obliged to ad
vance our price."'' Supposing, the
miller was right--what dilfference
would that make, for they did not
pay nlore than the government guair
anteed price of $2.00, and not that,
for we all know how the millers
have scaled their wheat purchases
so that the farmers have not re
ceived their guaranteed price. We
have all read that. tile government
may dispose of great holdings of
wheat at $1.50 to the millers and
stand the loss, in order to keep upll
the agreed price, which was made
necessary by war conditions.
Labor has not advanced. There is
such a surplus of flour that the mills
have only been running aboaut 40 per
cent capacity for sometime back.
You know the government is
shipping wheat to Europe and allow
ing the flour to be made there. Per
haps there is method in their mad
ness and the loss to the millers is
being made up at home.
The only profiteering bill that was
passed at the last legislative session
was the one providing for the regu
lation of the millers of the state by
the railroad conmmnission (???). Since
the bill was passed the price of flour
has advanced about $2.00 per barrel,
and the large dealers have followed
suit, and then some. We will say for
dealers advertising in The Bulletin
that they are still selling the best
Montana flour at the price in effect
when they laid in a heavy supply.
Under government regulatio`t of
the millers during the war, id as '
found that sone millerS mad 4
per cent dividends. Our TWi'slkc.roa
were so grieved and peevied at the
milling' trust that they passed a bill
regulating them by the railroad
commission. Regulation evidently
does not regulate.
Remember the people do not havel
to submit to unjust profit taking if
they do not so desire. They can
initiate high cost of living bills at
the September special election and
the patriots in the trenches of trade
cannot keep the consumer away from
the polls. Conditions are as the
people wish them, otherwise they
would make a change for the better.
The people still have the ballot and
in submitting such a bill enough
votes could not be sjolen to set aside
i the will, of the people.

POI'ULARI LOAN THE ONLY WAY.
There is just one way in which the
treasury depl:trtment can get this great
sumn of niony. That Is by borrowing
it from! the Ipcople of this country. Un
thinking or disloyal people have said
that the banks were going to subscribel
this loan. Stop and think what that
would llean. If the banks could and
did loan the Government $6,000,000,
Il.,. it would require the inlvestllenlt
tin non-negotiable securities) of every

sullt- Th'ey would have no mnoney to

long colltl the business of the country

FOREIGN BORN PRAISED
Given Credit For Helping Govern
ment During World War.
Response Would Make Simon Pure
Americans Take Notice, if
Known, Say Officials.
Praise for the spirit and the ac
tual performance of America's foreign
born during the world war was given
without stint at a meefing in Minne
apolis recently by Hans Rieg, head of
the foreign language section of the
National War Loan Organization. Mr.
Reig spoke before Minnesota county
chairmen of the War Savings Stamp
division at a meeting which was ad
dressed also by Theodore Wold, go..
ernor of the Minneapolis Federal Re
serve bank. Arthur R. Rogers, chair.
man of the Ninth District War Loan
organization, John II. Meyering, B. S.
DBull and other workers of the govern,
ment securities committee.
"In the purchase of Thrift Stamps
and War Savings Stamps the 13,000,
000 foreign born Americans and the
15,000.000 more whose parents were
foreign born have come forward with
a response which would make the si
mon pure Americans sit up and take
notice if it were generally known,"
Mr. Rieg said.
'A great benefit from the war is the
realization it has brought us of the
value of our foreign born brother citi
zens. It has made us realize that they
are a welcome element in our popu
lation and that their contribution to
our prosperity is one of the foremost
importance. Their answer to the
draft summons, under which hundreds
of thousands waived exemption, their
purchase of Liberty Bonds and their
conservation, much of which has led
to thile purchase of War Savings
Stamps have all been whole-hearted
"We are going about the organiza
tion of War Savings societies with one
great purpose in view. We are going
to inculcate the virtue of thrift in a
nation that is notoriously profligate.
And with this we are to couple a
course of Americanization, a further
effort to advance our foreign born
along the road of citizenship."
Mr. Rieg told how the Ninth dis
trict's lilan of using existing clubs
and societies as the nucleus of the
War Savings societies to be formed
has the approval of the treasury de
partment workers at Washington.
Organization and education, he said,
are the two great means by which
Americans can be changed from
spendthrifts to careful spenders and
conservers of their resources. Mr.
Rite emphasized the value of choosing
the right type of leadership and con
gratulated the Ninth district on the
men who are directing its War Loan
