vastef'ul was the uneo-ordinrated Iransport by rail and the pri- S
ale o\\lnership of coal truc.ks; and, finally, how scandalously I1
,ad were the hoursing coiinlitionus of lthe miners. These rev- ti
ialions, largely extracted by skilled cross-examination from a
he ilflicial w\iitnesses. as \\ell as from those put up by the em- a
loyers. reverberated throughout the United Kingdom, and
it only coniiverted public opinion to the miners' claims, but g
lso \\ent far to swing over the ordlinary man to nationalization. l
It tIhe e ndc, I\vo days Ibefore the strike notices expired, the t
oinmiissiion made three reports. One, signed by six out of a

rand iin full. including the natiionalizalion of' the mines. An- a
tliher. sign'led only by the three mine owners, conceded only
ine h.oi' a diay. instead of the iwo hours asked for, and a 15 per l

THE FIGHTERS' VIEW. i T,'ArATT WflMt I
The American people for months past having been surfeited
with lurid tales of slaughter and outrages alleged to have been
committed by the bolsheviki, in the daily newspapers backed
iby those who made money out of the war, it is with pleasure
that we reproduce below an editorial expression from the Fort
Sheridan Recall, a paper published by returned service men
Ilhe men who fought on the bloody battlefields of France for
the same ideals for which the, bolsheviki of Russia have been.
tre and will continue to contend for until their hopes are re
rlized to the full.
The views expressed in the editorial from the I'Recall" are
generally in. line \ili those held by a great majority of the re
turiied doughboys interviewed by the Bulletin, which ineains
that the American autocrats will have to, depend for support
upo1)1 tile ignoranllt anld uninformed and iot Upon lthe inenr who

The paper from which the following article is taken was
purchased I'roni a wounded Yank on the streets of Chicago by
the writer. It is full of hope for the proletarian; it also exudes
large gobs of ."gloom" for the Montana and other Ameridall
kaisers. to which they are \\elcomue.
Here it is:
LADLING OUT BUNK.
Isn't most of this bolsheviki stuff we are being fed upon bunk-
bhunk pure and simple, ladled out with a big spoon to a nation now as
supersensitive to alarm as it was apathetic in the early stages of the
war? The world in itself is enough to throw the fear of anything
into you as soon as spoken.
The real mneaning in Russian is as harmless as prepared babies'
food. The exact translation of bolsheviki is maximalist, or a party
of the greatest number in contradistinction to the minimalist, or the
party of the fewest numbers. In thinking about Russia bear in mind
a fact in itself almost impossible to grasp by anyone brought up in
Out ;f its millions of population there are only two millions that
are educated. The rest cannot even sign their own names, and the
signature in itself is probably of as supreme indifference to them as
the names Lenine, Trotzky or holsheviki. Of course it's a cinch to
proclaim yourself the head of a bunch of people who can neither
read nor write.
in the Daily News of Chicago, last Tuesday, was a cabled article
by a special correspondent in Munich, in which he said all was prac
tically quiet there, but that most frantic efforts were being made in
Berlin to paint the city red for foreign news consumption. In the
afternoon papers of the same day was a page devoted to the horrors
and fighting of that city.
Berlin shows a discriminating nicety in avoiding the word bolsheviki.
She calls them "reds" and other lurid names, but we shouldn't be
surprised if under the name of those banned from Berlin you didn't
find just as good democratic stuff as can be found anywhere. The
whole size of the situation is probably this: The home-made revolu
tion and democratization got out of hand and become a real fact in
stead of a sham play.
How peeved you would be if in "playing Indians" one of your friends
really scalped you! This is our dollar-to-doughnuts guess of the day.
The gist of our previous remarks about Russia and bolsheviki came
from a conversation with a Russian imperial officer not long ago;
a clean-cut, well educated young man who was on his way back to
Russia after two years spent heie to familiarize himself with our
present methods of beet sugar production.
Note this last fact. It certainly does not strengthen our belief in
the chaos of that land. Among other questions he was asked how
the entourage of the Russian embassy of the old empire were being
supported at the present time in the United States. The answer was
delightfully simple. The cancellation of ammunition and other con
tracts with rebate for cash paid gave enough to keep the old ship of
state running. We asked him about the truth in,the reports of the
communal wives distributed by the so-called bolsheviki regime. He
and his Russian wife simply laughed.
In heat we quoted the article of that day on the subject, but the
most he would admit was that such a thing mighlt have happened in
some small, distant province in Russia, but in such far away centers
from civilization anything was liable to happen at any time with or
without Lenine or Trotzky. This new aspect is reassuring. This
certainly is a season when gloom stalks and bunk instead of butter is
spread on bread.

JANE DE BELLEVILLE.
Jane de Belleville was the wife of
Oliver III., lord of Clisson, and,
single handed, carried on a war
against the French king. Philip de
Valois, king of France, caused her
husband to be beheaded on suspicion
of having corresponded with the
English. This occurred in 1343.
Jane sent her son, a boy of 12. se
cretly to London for safety and then
:sold her jewels to fit out three ves
sels. In command of these, she at
tacked all the French ships she met.
She made descents in Normany, took
possession of castles and set them to
the torch and otherwise carried on
war against Philip. She was con
sidered the most beautiful woman in
Europe, and she led all attacks on
French territory in person. With a
sword in one hand and a torch in the
other, she commanded and enforced
acts of the greatest cruelty in her
thirst for vengeance against the man
who was responsible for the execu
tion of hpr husband.
Martha Bratton was a native of
Ilowan county, North Carolina. Her
husband, William Bratton of South
Carolina, was a colonel in the Amer
ican army during the revolution.
While he was engaged with his troops
away from home, Mrs. Bratton was
often left to defend herself and the
stores left in her charge. At one time
she blew up the ammunition left in
her care, when she saw that other
wise they would fall into the hands
of the enemy. At another time she
was threatened with instant death by
a British soldier if she persisted in
refusing to d4vulge the whereabouts
of her husband. She was saved by
the intervention of a British officer,
and repaid her obligation by saving
him when he was taken prisoner by
the American forces. She entertained
him in her hlouse until he was ex
changed. Martha Bratton died in

The first electrical railway was
built between Berlin and Lichter
felde and was given its inaugural
trial 38 years ago today, May 12,
1881. A speed of 18% miles an hour
was attained by this pioneer electric
ally-operated car, and was placed at
the service of the public four days
later. It was not a commercial suc
cess, however, and electric traction
was developed largely on this side of
the Atlantic. The first really im
portant trolley system in America
was put into operation at Richmond,
Va., in 1888, by Frank J. Sprague.
The Richmond venture was so suc
cessful that the West End company
of Boston immediately began the elec
trification of its 200 miles of lines,
and other municipal transportation
companies all over America speedily
followed. Today electrical power is
also being adopted by railroads in
both America and Eurone.
(;OING HIM SEVERAL BETTER.
Tihe oldest good story is the one
about the boy who left the farm and
got a job in the city. He wrote a
letter to his brother, who elected to
I stick by the farm, telling of the joys
of city life, in which he said:
"Thursday we auto'd out to the
Country club, where we golfed until
dark. Then we motored to the beach,
and Fridayed there."
The brother on the farm wrote
"'Yesterday we buggied to town
and baseballed all afternoon. Then
we went to Med's and pokered till
morning.- Today we muled out to
the cornfield and gee-hawed until
sundown. Then, we suppered, and
then we piped for a while. After
t that we staircased up to our room
and beadsteaded until the clock
