f Presidentl Wilson was not so ill anld was able to be in
Butte today, it woiuld Iulaoubtedly shockl him a greal deal more
to realize the warmth in the reception accorded Senator Htiram
Johnson of California, his most earnest opfponenlt on this league
of nations' bunk. The senator knows whereof he speaks anl is
one of the few solons who are willing to speak right out lootl
against Ihe league of imnperialisIs which \Vilson, taking his cue
from Lloyd George ainl Cleimencean, is trying to foist upon lie
Last night no one knew that Senator Johnson would he our
guest today. Today the senil~otn is the cynosure of all eyes and
has been holding levies at the Thornton, at which not on0111y tlhe
city's most prominent republicans, but the cily's staunchest.
democrats are present. rThlis afternoon at the Broadway
theater Senator Johnson was greeled by a great crowd, and
Ihis despite the fact that the majorily of the citizens were not
aware that the senator was here.
And the recepltion ae',ded tlie senator from California in
Buttell shows conclu(sively that thle majori ty of Ihe people of the
city are witlh hint in his stanld against the league of nalions.
And Butte is typical of the rest of the United States.
Wh erever one goes hIe fit ds opposition to the ''league of noi

lionaire manufucturers and lankers and such political parrots
as ex-Presidlent Taft. the people ,o1' the t'Iited States are in
dividlually and collectively agaiiist the league and wherever
Senator Johnsoni speaks he is sure to find a big audience and
an a ppreciative one.
Tl'o those otf the toiling masses who were gullible enough It
hope for some relief t'rm the deliberations of president Wil
son's "'rotnd-lable" counflerence at \\'Wstshington, the Iproposals
submilted Iby the several g'iroups iiimst seem tragic indeed.

I. A GENERAL STRIKE.
When' I arrived in the .United't
States from Siberia i read in the cap- 1
italistic papers that allied forces are c
in Siberia to protect the allied war t
materials in that country, to restore t
law and order, and not to interfere
in Russian internal affairs., They 1
said, too, that the American nilitary1
forces are in Siberia only to guard
the Siberian railroads and supply the t
Siberian population with the neces
sities of life. They said that only 5
per cent of the Siberian population is,
bolshevik. I spent considerable time
in Siberia, and will give' the true
facts about the internal situation
I arrived in Vladivostok in July,
1918. On the first day I saw in that
harbor a Japanese battleship, a Brit
ish armed cruiser, and an American
cruiser, the Brooklyn. At that time
there was fighting still in progress
between the red forces and the
Czecho-Slovaks, following the over
throw of the Vladivostok soviet on
June 29. On July 2 we got a wire
Less aboardship about the seizure of
the Siberian port by the allied naval
forces" tnd Czecho-Slovak troops.
iBefore' the landing of the allied
forces in Vladivostok the town was
in. good 'order. ' The stories i-n-'the
capitalisti¢ press that under soviet
control disorder and . looting .and
murder prevailed are' lies.,
Wlhat tlie.Japanese Told tle Soviets.
When the allied forces landed, Ad
miral Kato, Japanese commander-in
chief of the allied naval squadron, is
sued a manifesto to the Russian pop
ulation, stating that the allies had no
ifitention of crushing the revolution,
Sbut that on the contrary they would
with all their strength defend the
workers': revolution. They would not
interfere with Siberian internal af
fairs,' they said, but had 'just come
to protect the railway material and
animunition sent id-by thle allies dur
ing the regime of the czar and Keren
sky from falling into the hands of
the Germans. That, I suppose, sounds
very true and polite, does .it not?
On the same day the soviet sent
committees to the foreign consular
body, tried to convince them of. their
unjust act in landing their forces on
foreign soil, and assured the'm that
foreign property would by all means
be safeguarded. To the committees'
surprise the foreign consular body
refused to hear them at all, and in
stead, 'to maintain law-and, order in
the town as they had assured in their
,iroclamation, they began a secret'
t terror. Hundreds of workers were
kidnapped at night and executed
- without reason. Many citizens were
arrested by the Japanese naval pa
trol and. their homes invaded. Sec
) retaries of the various labor.unions
were imprisoned and many of them
were executed. . Many industrial
plants were' shut down, because of
the crtielties committed by the re
spiectabl Safeghardians of democ
racy against the workers. All their
eflorts 'to induce the workers 'to re
t~ jn to work proved, futile, and the
latter,' having: no redress, escaped
Sfrdm the. town, into the mountains to
help their comrades fight the foreign
' Invaders until they should be cleared
from 1tussian soil. No prisoners 'of
1~ war were taken at that tilme by the
allied, invaders. As any worker, was
captured he was immediately shot by
p the Japanese gentlemen. Excltemeist
5 among the Siberian. workers and
.peasants grew daily as they heard
L- that.their brothers were being shot
e by thousands. They organized thenm
selt.s in groups, and armed with
, good rifles and machine guns that
Scafle from nobody knew where,
r escaped to 'the mountains. From then
1, on the military trains of the allies,
t, especially the Japanese, and of Kol
f chak were being continually wrecked.
s Thousands of Japanese were killed
by the insurgent bands surrounding
it Vladivostok and in Amur province,
h and many of them refused to rush to
the front; then they were executed
by their comrades as mutineers.
General Strike 'in the Coal Mines.
In April a 'general strike broke' out
in the Su-chan- coal mines, 40 miles
g north'of Vladivostok. Clashes had
been occurring daily between the
Japanese sentries and miners, so that
the Americans assumed. thee ox'elof
bility of guarding the mines, ." ,le
quested the Japanese t' vithd4'w
their troops ;rol.. the $S '-gw 1ie

and the situation was a 1nltt'|L. li

the results were that thousads ,of

of weapons and marched away, atr

forces, consisting of danadiang, Ital

French aind Chinese and Japatese.-,
Allied SIoldiers Are Not Enthu6lastic.
First 'the "CantdianA' trfuiled -to
fight, and on ianoy opeasionis secre'ly
turned over hMany of their rifles to
the peasants there. An.ericatb spl

had special orders from the war de

the result was' that all.the' llief mill

On 'jutie 5,. the day.`I..left,Vladi

-everything was qompletely, tied 'ip.
The Central -Labor council declared

1 ers all the Worlrers - united like otie
