POLAND'S FAVOR

U. S. MESSAGE SOAKS IN
Appeal to Russ to Dethrone
Oppressors in Return for
Aid, Finds Favor.
By KRKDER1C WILLIAM WILE.
(Copyright. 1#30. by Public Ledger Co.) ?
Washington learned officially yesterday.
from American sources in
Warsaw, that the military tide on
the Polish-Red front has turned in
Poland's favor.
In a dispatch dated Wednesday,
August 18. the United States charge
d'affaires in Warsaw. John Campbell
White, telegraphed the State
Department that "unless the Bol(shevist
army is able to organize
a strong counter attack. It is on
the verge of a severe defeat." That
reassuring information was corroborated
by news received by
Prince Lubomirski. the Polish Minister.
r. 8. Mfvuute Hits Home.
Coincident with the revival of the
Poles' battle fortunes, and perhaps
in considerable degree responsib'e
for them, comes the important news
that America's appeal to Russian
nationalists to renounce Bolshevism
is soaking in. I am
enabled to slate that during
the past twenty-four hours word
has reached the United States
government from its "observe*s" at
various points along the far-flung
Russian frontier that our message
to patriotic Russia is striking home.
The remarkable fact is chronicled
that it seems to be appealing
to non-Bolshevist and Bolshevist
elements alike. .
Indisputable proof is in hand that
our invitation to genuine Russian
Democrats to dethrone their Red oppressors
and accept the proffered
aid of the United States in rehabilitating
their country is creating the
kind of impression we want it to.
ar?aw Still in Danger,
r Military authorities in Washington.
who have hitherto been conspicuously
accurate in their gauging
of Polish-Russian military developments,
warn against too optimistic
conclusions.
Our military experts are not yet
realy to predict that the Bolshevist
army has shot its bolt. There is
still the possibility that Brusiloff
will turn and counter attack. Much
is thought to depend on the ability
of the Polish government to furnish
its army with an incessant and adequate
stream of munitions.
RADIO PILOTING
SECRET FOUND
Navy Improves on Wireless
Operation of Ships Germans
Invented.
(By 1 nlverul Serrlce.)
^ The German secret of operating
f a battleship at full speed by wireless
has been discovered by the
Navy Department. By means of
tests on the battleships Iowa and
Ohio the plan has beeii so much
improved upon that it has become
practically American.
This was learned from high officials
of the Navy Department today.
The tests have been in progress
on the American battleships during
the past six months. It is understood
they have been more than
gratifying. The Iowa and Ohio are
obsolete vessels, but of sufficient
tonnage and .?peed that a successful
test with them means success
With the largest vessels afloat.
practical application of the
discovery will make naval warfare
of the future sharp and decisive for
the government that can monopolize
the invention. This government
knows that England. Japan
| and France were aware late in the
war that Germany had solved the
principle of the problem.
It was with this invention that
Germany hop<>d to destroy the British
navy. ^

BRITISH ARMING
IN EXPECTATION
OF REVOLUTION
Miners' Strike, Due in September,
Almost Sure to
Result in Bloodshed.
HAND OF REDS IS SEEN
Lenine Believed Back of
Plan of Labor to Seize
Properties.
(By CARL W. ACKERMAN.)
'Washington Herald-Public Ledger
Scrrlcc.)
London, Aug. 19.?England today
is experiencing the spectacle of a
dress rehearsal for revolutionary action.
The government fully expects
the miners to strike early In September.
The mine leaders have submitted
demands which neither the government
nor industry will consider, because
to accept them would be equivalent
to placing the control of the
mines in the hands of the miners.
Furthermore. the mine ieaaer>,
backed by the responsible labor
chiefs, desire to measure their
strength with the government. l?abor
is anxious now to bring on both
an industrial and political crisis,
hoping by means of strikes and a
possible general election to gain
control of the government.
Try to Smuggle Ammunition.
The Public Ledger Foreign Service
is informed by most reliable authorities
that attempts have recently
been made to smuggle ammunition
into mine centers, and while the
miners are undoubtedly ^rming anu
preparing in some localities to take
the mine properties there is another
very powerful secret organization of
former officers and citizens who are
also arming and preparing for the
crisis, to help the government when
it calls for assistance. This organization.
which is known as the council
of defense, is an outgrowth of
the citizens' body which carried on
during lust year's great rail strike.
While the council of action is
planning to supersede the government.
the council of defense is
building up an organization of
citizen volunteers to do the work of
the strikers and carry on.
Hand of BolsheviatM Seen.
If this threatened revolutionary
outburst were confined to (Jreat
Britain there would be little cause
for? alarm. Hut events in England
are closely connected with Russian
propaganda. There is not the slightest
doubt today in minds of the government
but that Lenine, through
his trade representatives here, is
guiding the revolutionary movement
in England. I understand the government
possesses full information
showing that Krassin and KamenefT
paid the representatives of the Daily
Herald 620 Chinese gold bonds of a
nominal value of J mo each for controlling
the policy of fhat paper.
