France's reply to the American
note on Poland, Russia and bolshevism
was issued, after four days' delay,
by the State Department last
night. As already foreshadowed by
semi-official summaries cabled from
Paris, the French government, in
l suave and knightly language, assol
ciates . itself unqualifiedly with the
United States' demand for Polish independence
and with our uncompromising
hostility to the bolshevi
1st regime.
[ France avers that it Is because
.it so cordially approves'the "spirit"
of the "principles formulated by the
l United States" that the Wrangel
government has received French
. recognition. Wrangel's regime in
South Russia is described as "a
Russian government which declares
that it accepts the same principles."
The implied French invitation to
America to join in recognizing
J Wrangel is not acceptable to our
I government. In that connection the
^Secretary of State announces that
"there is a divergence, not of purpose

Berlin, Aug. 18.? In a street bat- j
tie in Kattowitz, between the sol- I
! diers of the French army of occuI
pation and the German and Polish |
civilians, twenty Germans and Poles
i and nine French were killed. Dr.
| Milewski, one of the chief Polish
leaders, was beaten to death and
I his body thrown into the rive^. The
German dead include Maj. Ton
j Kleist, commander of the StcherI
heitswehr.
These reports were received at
; the German foreign office at noon
j today from the plebiscite area of
Silesia, which is practcally a "no
1 man's land." It was cut off from
| Germany by the treaty of VerI
salles and is occupied by French
1 troops for the league of nations. H

the region will not bo determined I
until a vote is taken by the in- I

Hand Grenades Used. L
The French used machine guns gj
.and hand grenades in firing into
the mob, the reports stated.
This incident, following closely
upon the alleged ruthlessness
chargod against the French mill-!
tary in the Sarre Valley and al-l
leged new cases of outrages on j
German women and girls by the |
French black troops, have resulted i
in a wave of hatred against the
French which Is sweeping Germany.
The government today expressed
itself as pr**atly disquieted. Never ^
at any timr during the war was
the hatred of the French so unanimous,
so bitter and at so high a r;
pitch as it is today. jj
Soviet Spread Feared.
The French officers at Kattowitx
are charged in dispatches and in *
ofTicfbl reports with adopting "a c
most provocative attitude." . _
At the foreign office fear was expressed
that Upper Silesia in its| 1
desperation and in its hatred of
the French would join the Bolshe-' 1
vists. creating a most serious sit- j
uation for Germany. It is believed!
that if this occurred the French:
would immediately seize the Ruhr
