CZECHS STRUCK DOWN
BY AUSTRIAN POLICE
Treatment at National Cele
bration at Prague described
By JULIUS WEST
Special Cable to Evening Public Ledger
Covvrloht, 19tt, bv New York Times Co,
Berne, June 8.
The Democrat, a dally paper published
at Delemont, contains what It sas is
the first coherent account yet published
of the national Czech celebrations which
took place at Prague on May 16. The
town was packed that day, not only
with Czechs, but with Innumerable dele
gations from other separate nationali
ties, including many of their principal
leaders. The Italian speakers received
an especially tumultuous welcome, owing
to tho recently concluded Italo-SIav
agreement, but what happened after
ward Is still doubtful, especially as re
gards numbers. The Austrian authori
ties attempted to disperse the demon
strators and arrested a number, officially
given as thirty-six, but this Is said to be
a ridiculous underestimate.
It appears that fighting between the
soldiers and police en one side and the
demonstrators on the other lasted sev
eral hours, and that other outbreaks oc
curred on the following days, when the
police found the walls decorated1 with
such inscriptions as "Hurrah for the
Entente" and "Long live Wilson.'
To. restore tranquillity the police have

It suggests that probably the Amer

and that, many speeches In French were
translated Into English and vice versa.

Americans were packing their' trunks

then the "Tower of Babel" prevented

The Zeltung draws satisfaction from
the assumption that the visit of the
American labor leaders failed In its
aim and that "the honorable patriots
who were supposed to Instill a warlike
spirit Into the Frencn Socialists became
disciples of peace by agreement." The
paper alleges that the Americans were
misted about the war and that the pad
