for this burst of patriotism hie saw
to it that the materials used were
about half as good as formerly,
which meant that he hooked his
country both coming and going.
The government appreciated this
individual's efforts to the extent of
scrapping about 75 per cent of his
output before it could be used, with
out, however, taking any action that
tended to curtail the profit he was
making from the whole.

was lauded to the skies for his tmag

Seth Burt, Alias Edwarc
Langdon, Is Charged
(By United Press.)
San Luis Obispo, Cal.. Aug 14.
Characterized as "one of tile most
remarkable young criminals of- tihe
age," Seth Burt, alias Edward Latng
don, 22, was brought before the sua
perior court here today for trial on
a charge of murdering D)avi(l More
house, a night watchman at Paso
Burt is alleged. to have confessed
to the murder. With himt has been
held Hugh Moore. 19, who is charged
with complicity in the murder.
In his alleged confession to Sherift
Taylor, Burt frankly admitted thl
crime of which he has been charged.
He said Moore, although with him,
was not a party to the murder. He
cooly described how he and Moore
entered a hardware store in Past
Robles, and were discovered by
Moorehouse. Burt then fired on the
night watchman. and the two ex
changed several shots before More
hoiuse was fatally hit.
The two young men were appre

Angeles, three high-powered shot
guns and ammunition which had been

automobile thefts and other rob
beries. The police say he also told of

So Butte Office, 318 N. Wyoming St., J. E. Williams, Bond and Bail
Kereusky, had never got its roots
down into the people of Russia. In
Petrograd and Moscow they had
power; they held the offices and
dealt with foreign questions. But in
the villages far removed from Petro
grad the peasants said: 'The czar
we know; but the czar is gone. As
for this Kerensky, who is he that
we should obey his word?'
"I found also that, with the dissolv
ing of the old binder, a new binder
was growing in Russ'a. out of the
revolutionary consciousness of the
people. It was, a new social power,
a power that couild ask for grain and
get grain, that could ask for wagons
and cars and get wagons and cars,
that could command and enforce its
"I did not find it because I wanted
td. I was working with Kerensky; I
hfd credentials from him. I wanted
to work with officials who recog
tized him. But I discovered this
new power because I was banging
up against it, and because it was
able to function while Kerensky's of
ficals were not.
"So 1 began asking: -What is this
thing, this new social control? What
is its nature? Its reasonable expec
tation of power?
"When I inquired what the soviet
was, there were two voices. One said:
'It is no older than the revolution of
1905, when the workmen's council.t
we'ce organized in the cities of IRus
sia. That is what the soviet is, the
dOlegate council of workmen, each
from their factories and organiza
tions. This was true in the cities
"Another voice said: 'It goes back
into the most ancient life of Russia.
It has absorbed into itself the oldest
social control in Russia. a democratic
social control, the old village mir.
This was trtue in the rural districts.
"This village mir was not unlike
the old town meeting of New Eng
land. - It was .more inclusive in its
representation than American insti-.
ttltions have been, since women voted
equally with men. For the tmir dealt
with the distributiont bf the com-.
munal lands, and a widowv owned
the rights of her husband.
"Later the moir slowly absorbe2
powers of local road building and
education. But it was held down by
the autocracy, which feared its dem
ocratic power. Mirs had no dealings
wifth each other; they were not al
lowed to send delegates to one an
"When the czar fell. the mirs grew
.ver night into delegate bodies, con
tulting on district affairs, on provin
Jal affairs; then into a national con
Iims of soviets, whi('i had territ'orial
'e.pesentatives from Ine villages, as
we l as industrial replesefntatives
from tile cities.
"'The first of these national con
pr'sses met long before Kerensky
fell, only a few months after the
lirst revolution. It was not the gov
ernment at that time, but it was a
nationally representative body with
power-a natural instrument of self
"The Bolsheviki were at that time
a minority party in the soviet. We
should distinguish belween the form
of social control and the party tem
porarily in power. Democrats or re
publicans may rise to power in our
country, but the structure of govern
mtent remains the same. Tile soviet
