OF HIS GOVERNMENT
Kerensky's Power and Plan,
of New Rule First Issue
HISS FROM GALLERY
Heckling by Soldier Causes
Uproar War Minister
By Associated Tress
PETROGRAD, Sept. 29. Premier
Kerensky took the initiative today
and faced gallantly what may be the
supreme test ot the power of his
At the very beginning of the demo
cratic Congress, called by the Maxi
milists and the Council of Workmen's
and Soldiers' Delegates, the question
of the premier's power and purpose
to attempt a new government was im
mediately brought up.
The premier accepted the challenge.
He told the Congress that his regime
had saved Russia in its blackest hour.
'The government ahjo indicated its
policy of firmly continuing the war,
when the Minister of War pledged
the convention to a iinal victory over
Germany, If discipline in the army
The general's reference to the re
turn of discipline and his announce
ment that the officers would be named
by their superiors instead of by .the
soldiers was applauded only mildly,
but his address as a whole evoked
more cheering than did the premier's.
Premier Kerensky, in his speech,
referred to the revolt of General Kor
niloff In these words: "I resented it
and destroyed it when I was informed
of its existence."
Soldier Iterates Kerenskj.
When the premier declared that the
good of Russia necessitated the ob
servance of order and discipline, he
was severely heckled.' He had
reached a pause in his address
when a loud voice in the gallery
shouted, "You are the great mischief
taiker of the country." From a bed
lam of hisses and applause came a
challenge for the heckler to arise. A
common soldier in the back of the
gallery arose and with arms folded
stood calmly and faced a torrent of
hisses from the crowd supporting
The section of the war minister's
speech concerning the efforts of Ger
many to obtain peace at the expense
of Russia evoked great applause.
"Our gallant Allies," the war minis
ter said, "have replied to the dastardly
effort by renewed attacks on all their
fronts, believing, as I believe, that
the Russian army still will bare its
breast to free the fatherland."
To Handle Army Without Gloves.
The general said he would handle
the army without gloves, although he
had planned Ms campaigns with all
good intentions for the men. He
pointed out that the 120 regiments at
Riga did not refuse to fight and die,
but that he needed men to fight and
win victories now.
"The fleet does not refuse to fight,"
he said, "but at the same time It mur
ders its officers. We hear many worthy
words about the army, but we have a
great many deserters to punish. The
glorious victories on the southwest
front in July culminated in a dis
graceful retreat. In the rear we have
reinforcements, but the men at the
front do not accept them because they
bring dissatisfacticn and dissension
and regiments with historic achieve
ments cannot accept such men."

A GROCETERIA IS IX TOWN
Cafeteria Idea Adapted to Grocery
Groceteria! What is it? you ask.
It's a new kind of store which elimi
nates clerks and delivery boys. One
has been started in Columbia. ,
In the manner In which a person
selects his favorite dishes in the cafe
teriu, a customer goes to the shelves
of the groceteria and garners into his
market basket crackers, beans, coffee,
tea and other articles for the table
and proceeds to the cashier for a re
view of his container and to pay for,
its contents. The idea is in line
with war-time economy, the groce
teria owners declare, and every effort
is made to avoid delivery expense,
although packages are delivered at
10 cents a trip, regardless of the size
of the purchase.
"Helping the people to help them
selves" is the underlying principle of
the groceteria, cafeteria and other
"teria" ventures. The movement is
rapidly spreading and bids fair to
become national in its scope.

In Far East.
By Associated Press
NEW YORK. Sept 29. Japan not
only will not seek to assail the integ
rity or the sovereignty ot China, but
eventually will be nrenared to defend
Chinese Independence against any
aggressor, Viscount Ishii, head of the
Japanese Imperial Mission to the
united States, declared tonight in
nroclaiminc a Monroe doctrine of the
Far East in an address at a banquet
given in honor of the envoys as the
culminating event of their visit to
Viscount Ishii's address was re
garded as the most important he has
delivered since the arrival of the mis
sion in the United States. He dis
cussed frankly his country's aspira
tions and desires as they relate to
China and denounced the propaganda
of ill-will, "'the persistent cry of the
closed door." He did not hesitate to.
assert that in seeking the trade of
China his country possessed natural
advantages in trade by means of
which it was bound to succeed in
China "unless we are very stupid or
Door Always Open.
"The door to Japan is and always
has been open. It always must re
main open, not only to the guest who
comes to our little island for a round
of pleasure, but to the representative
of those vast commercial interests
represented so well in this gathering
of kings of commerce.
"In spite of all the effort you make,
you believe that Japan as she grew
stronger was always trying to close
the door. I tell you that there never,
has been an hour when our common
sense or a sense of our responsibility
failed us. As you went far afield and
brought us knowledge of the West,
taught us how to grow and how to
trade, so we, as we gained wisdom,
knowledge and strength went into
other fields qf trade. We went to
China, where the door was open to
us as to you, and we have always
realized that there nature gave us an
advantage. There is no need to close
that door on you, because we welcome
your fair and honest competition
"I am persuaded that the grum
blings and the whisperings about a
door closed in China by the Japanese
against America did not come from
the American, but is the result of ten
years of an enemy's effort to create
prejudice and distrust. Much has
been written about Japan's policy to
ward China as being one that sought
only the aggrandizement of Japan
and the confusion, disruption or op
pression of our neighbor. We want
good government for China, which
means peace, security and the devel
opment of opportunity.
"A Sincere Friend."
"We wish to be the sincere friend
and helper of our neighbor, for we
are more interested than anyone else
in good government there. We not
only will not assail the Integrity or
the sovereignty of China, but will
eventually be prepared to defend and
maintain that integrity and sovereign
ty against any aggressor. For we
know that our own landmarks would
be threatened by any outside invasion.
"Since that outbreak of the war in
Europe, China has been a hotbed of
German intrigue and in all this China
has perhaps been the greatest suffer
er. My convicition is that the German
in China Is responsible for most of the
unfortunate occurrences and malicious
widespread misinformation Scattered
throughout the world for the purpose
of impairing the relations of the
countries concerned in China and se
curing the downfall of China to Ger

devil of suspicion and mistrust in
order that we who are allies and
partners may rebuild our shattered
edifice of mutual confidence which
means so much as a stronghold for
us both. We are neighbors, friends

Keen Interest centers In the con
test between the Reds and Blues. Al

' COPENHAGEN, Sept. 29. Germany
has not renounced Belgium and has
not been in communication with any

speech made today by Chancellor
Michaelis before the Reichstag Mili
tary Committee. The chancellor is
quoted as follows:
"A Liberal representative correctly
stated that the attitude of the Im
perial government as regards its war

swer to the papal note. The peace
resolution of July 19 was expressly
mentioned in this reply and further

"Moreover, I declare the statement
that the Imperial government has al
ready communicated with its hostile
governments and that it had in ad
vance renounced occupied territory,
thus abandoning the most valuable
advantages in peace negotiations, is
untrue. I declare the Imperial gov
ernment has gone a long way toward
making peace negotiations. This also
refers to Belgium."

POPE'S JHCE 10VE
Foreign Secretary Kuehl
mann Says Outcome of Pa
pal Plan Is Doubtful.
c t T
and Government Have
the Same Policy.
BERLIN, Sept. 29. (British' Admir-
aU per Wlrelesa preSs.) The Ger-
man secretary for foreign affairs Dr
Richard von Kuehlmann, speaking be
fore the main committee of the Reich-
I . . , . ,.
staS. said he could not venture to
say what would be the immediate out
come of the papal steps toward peace.
"This courageous initiative of the
Pope," the secretary said, "will mark
an epoch in the history of this tre
jmendous battle of the nations and
I will appear as an unfading page In the
annals of Vatican diplomacy. The
Pope threw the word 'peace' into the
turmoil of 'battle at a time when
events reckoned to transform Europe
into a place of bloodstained ruins.
Pope's Move Appreciated.
"The German people and the govern
ment, whose consciousness of their
strength nnd internal security always
made it easy for them to emphasize
their willingness to conclude an hon
orable peace, have reason to welcome
gratefully the Initiative of the curia
which made it possible for them to
set forth again their national policy
in a clear, unambiguous manner. I
say intentionally 'national policy,' as
I hope and believe the reply of the
German gavernment both as regards
Its form and content embodies the de
sire of an overwhelming majority of
"For a purely German development
the note is also a landmark. It is the
first result of the collaboration be
tween all the factors of the govern
ment and representatives of the
German parliament. That has been
attempted here for the first time and
with a cordiality that has no prece
dent so far as I can see even in
merely parliamentary states."
Only One German Policy.
This collaboration, the secretary
added, both with regard to its princi
ple and result, is of a kind which a
statesman having the German for
eign policy at heart might regard with
perfect confidence. He denied that
there is in Germany today one policy of
the government and another policy of
the people and declared that this
legend could be destroyed If the Reicfi
stag stood behind the policy repre
sented in the reply to the Pope.
"The principles of the reply to the
papal note as presented by the Gov
ernment," the secretary continued,
"appear acceptable to the representa
tives of all the parties. Consequently
I believe I can say with full right that
all attempts of the enemy to drive a
wedge between the German people and
the German government on the ques
tion of the basis of our'foreign policy
and by the proposition of the fiction
that the German people do not stand
behind the kaiser and the Imperial
chancellor will be repulsed in the
most crushing manner by the support
given to this document."
