WILSON, PATRIOT? BAH!
The replort.s of the great ovalions, exceeding in einthiusialsn
and in numlbers those accorded the chief executive, that are
lieiug received by Senators Borah anid Jolhnson, now touring
thlie country oil the trail of \Vilson in opplosition to \ilson's
IBritish leagiie of nations. are ilndications of the real feeling of
the populace as rega rds both Wilson and his league.
The spectlacle of a man of thie .statlding of Senator BIoralih be
ilng willy cliheered when lie declares that the president of the
United( Slates is a "'lheater," "a tool of (Great Britainii and a
"traitor," shows only too clearly the temper of the people to
dlay as conitrasted with thlt of six mnioitlhs ago. Thlen, some of
us still maintaiied a childlike falith that. Wilson would live up
to his idealistic ,1promises of what he was going to do for the
enslaved peoples of thlie world. owever, today all that has
changed and, instead of even a 1half f.iith inl Wilson's honesty,
the people as a who\\ le look down upon him as a veritable and
actual traitor to his collntry and to his expressed principlles.
\When we think oft the hundr'eds of men and women now lan
guishing in our federal aind state prisons because they had the
foresight to see Wilson as he really was and is and had the
courage to express their olpinions, we c anniot help but contrast
the mildness of the remarks for whicnh so mariy were sent to
pr'ison with those of the senator from Idalho delivered yesterday
There are n1cii anld wonolll iii jail merely because sonime
months ago they expressed the belief, tlhat siuice has developed
into fact, that the Uniled Slates went to war to protect British
iiterests. Seniator ora.li yesterday declared that Wilson was the
subservient tooll to to \whom ligland had only to make sugges
tions in order to secure coni plaints with her wishes. And Sein
ator Borah is still at liberty.
There uir men and wom(.n1 in jail becanuse they expt'essed
their objecli os agai nst the sending of United Stlates troops to
Russia, a ination w1ith1 which we have always and still, presuni
lily, are at peace. Senator Ilttrah yesterday decluared that Wilson
had sent troops to Russia as "vietimus of Ithe imperial greedl of
,apal,n reinilflrce(d by fthat of EI nglatid." And Bormh still is free.
All in all. Senator }Hori iii his remarks yesterday sta0tedl
what any thinikinig person cannot help but realize---now---and
that is that W'ilsotis every nact t'(,I the time lie reached Paris
aiid conveniiently forgot aboullt his 1i points until the present.

and the irnternatilonl bInkers instead oft' in the interests of liu
inaniity or of the 'United States.

THE BLESSINGS OF DEMOCRACY.
W\e suppose thatI evenl the highly abstract thinig ciled de
mocracy is a rimtICr aof comlparisoll as well as more inaterial
II' this is so, the brand of deiocracy wiilih which we are be
ing tfavored suf''ers by caollimrisnl even with the sinall amiunlt
of that article Int wais existent in Russia duriiig the reign 1'
the late-lamented czar.
It will he recalled that there is a large niumber of more or
less well-lknwn ipersoniiges ill the variolus jails and peniten
tiaries of this count tlry serving senteclles for the c(rimne of
thinking that Ithe coalstitililon mealt what it said concerning
free speech. The case of Gene 1)ebs is typical of' the many.
It is, therefore, intleresting to find that under the czar's
government l)ebs would have received a far lighter sentence
than was inflicted upon liimin for exactly the same olffense oa'
which he was accused.
The fol lowing letter I. thle Nation explainls the matler:
To the Editor oft the Nation:
Sir: 1 believe it will be of interest to youir readers to
know the penalty to which Eugene V. I ebs would have
been liable under the Russian Penal coiile ,o 19038. whlich
was enacted prio to o the first rov\' lutioan and remainied in
force up to the present revolution. Pursuiant to Section
129. Subdivision 3. of that code, a person found "guilty
of delivering or reading in public an address or composi

NO MILIT ARISM?
Of course there is no danger of America ever becoming s
militaristic nation such as (;ermany was; we are reassured (,
this matter daily by the samue press that advocates unliversa
compulsory military service.
Yet our national congress has alpro'priated for the yeai
ending June 20, 1920, the sum of $ LO.00 0 for nilitar)
drill in schools. high schools and colleges.
At the same time congress appropriated the inmeager sum o
$524,600 for general educational purposes.

ITHE REASON WHY THE SOVIETS ARE ATTACKED
(By J. T. WALTON NEWBOL
D, M. A., in the Labor Leader.)
The persistent attack made upon
Russian socialism by the allied gov
ernments is to be explained partly
I by the fear of a successful experiment
in socialism, which would reveal the
wastefulness, the inadequacy,. the in
)quality, and the cruelty of the cap
, But that is not the whole explana
tion. Allied capitalists have an in
timate interest in the economic set
tlement of Russia, and they would
prefer that settlement to be on the
old lines. That would mean the con
tinuance of the opportunity to ex
ploit the mineral riches of Russia,
which was so unkindly taken from
them by Lenine and Trotsky in the
I interests of the Russian people.
Therefore, Lenine and Trotsky
must be overthrown, and if that
l process is assisted by calling the two
bolshevik leaders blackguards and
ruffians there are plenty of scribes
willing to write that every day 11
they are paid to write it!
Kolchak and Denekin and Co., it
their military efforts to smash the
Russian soviet government, may re

tanks, munitions, poison gas, and
host of similar capitalist arguments
Vhlat kind of interest in Russiar

U, Denikin is the biggest danger t
the workers of the world becaus
n he operates from the very center c
- the land mass of the old world. I
y Denikin and his supporters shoul
it win, then capitalism will harness th

1- know of no oil city that will cor

I1. Baku is greater than any other o
n I city in the world. If oil is king, Bak
.e alone is its throne."
The aim and purpose of the Brit
y ish capitalists in rendering every sul
Lt port to Denikin may he judged froe
o the following quotations:
d The gradual extension of allied it
as fluence in the Caucasus is shown 1
if the better news from Baku and Ma
kou (in the northern Caucasus Ma
in kop is in the hands of General Den
te kin's troops) given in this issue.
e- will be remembered that the formn
)f locality and its neighborhood wm
a some time ago constituted a sma
s. republic under the name of Aze
un baijan. The co-operation of the Bal
at local government reported recent
id in the reorganization of the oil ii
dustry, therefore, is that of the sma
of republic, and it is a pleasure to res
Id that this co-operation is under Bri
be ish direction. The market is eithi

is only by way of the Black Sea. i
n- for Russia. there seems to be a zom
s- I of bolshevism to the north of Bal
I that interferes with such a market.
Petrosk, on the Caspian, was re
cently reported a bolshevik center;
Sso was Astrakhan, the great Caspian
oil port. The market will extend at
the zone of allied influence broad
ens. There is evidence of an intelli
gent policy on the part of the Brit
ish government, and that policy may
be said to have for one of its chief
objects the restoration of the Cau
casian oil industry and traffic, under
Be ritish control. Shareholders in Ru
ma anian and Russian oil companies
have, therefore, on the whole
grounds for moderate cheerfulness.

The thought in the minds of some
of General Denikin's most influen
tial supporters may be gauged from
the following statement made by the
chairman of the four Caucasian oil
corporations at the annual meeting
of the Bibi-Erbat Oil Co., Ltd., (a
company which, according to the city
editor of John Bull, has suffered se
riously from "the recent troubles"t:
In the Caucasus. from Batoum on

The only fly in the ointment is the
usual weak-kneed attitude of our
a own government, who, cowed by the
I Little England attitude of the masses,
- have lost no time in announcing that
. the entry of our troops into these
i regions implies no intention of per
a manent occupation.
Never before in the history of
these islands was there such an op
portunity for the peaceful penetra
n tion of British influence and British
trade for the creation of a second
-ndia or a second Egypt, but the
y feeble voices, of our politicians, an
i- der the heel of democracy, drown all
i- such aspirations, and I fear we can

I1 The oil industry of Russia, liberal
ly financed and properly organized
u lnder British auspices, would in it
.y self be a valuable asset to the em
I- pire. Russia's oil industry is still,
11 granted normal conditions, the sec
d ond greatest in the world, and a gold
en opportunity offers itself at the
tprlesent moment to the British gov
id ernment to exorcise a powerful in
d fluence upon the immense production
is of the Grozuy, Baku, and Trans-Oas
ie plan fields, and-still nearer home -
:u perhaps upon the oilfields of Ruman
t. ia, rich in priceless petrol.

in upon directly they thought they
at were masters of the situation, and
d- I wish I could think that the lesson
Li- might not be lost on our political
it- ulers.-Petroleum Wiorld, January,
f That was spoken in December last,
before -Churchill brought the politi
r cal action of his Dundee economic
power to the support of Denikin.
s Since then the situation has improved
for these apt pupils, these eager
- copyists of the Germans.
"'the heel of democracy," has
if been temporarily wounded in a gen
ie ral election. The capitalists are in
if office as never before, and their ex
'C ecutive committee hastens to support
1- every international reactionary
whose bullying and thuggery may in

Maikop and Baku oil pumpers to

conditions of time and historic en
ni vironment differ, but the battle is
u- ane whether it be fought on the coal
fields and in the cotton towns of

farm-steadings of the soviet Russia.
