SLAVIC ITER SAYS
Peace Settlement in Russia
IRON HAND RULES
Bolslieviki Gain Ground by
Force Siberian Troops
IJy Associated Press
LONDON. Dec. 13. In a long re
view of the Russian situation, the
Petrograd correspondent of the Post
says there is no prospect of a peace
ful settlement and that henceforth
force must decide everything. The
secret of the successes throughout
the country of the Bolshevik!, he
writes, is that they represent the iron
What is behind them is as yet un
disclosed, but among the influential
members of their organization are
men who are prominent in the secret
political police of the empire, which
once ruled Russia. These men. ac
cording to the correspondent, are in
troducing dissension everywhere.
He continues: "Although floods of
Indignation are being poured out
daily upon the Bolsheviki, It Is be
yond question that they are gaining
ground in Russia, simply because
they use a strong hand, which is the
only thing the Russians in general
appreciate. Their methods might
horrify the West, but would be per
fectly understood east of the Suez.
For example, in the last three weeks
there have been taken out of the riv
ers and canals of Petrograd 7,000
naked corpses of persons whose
deaths were not caused by drowning.
Referring to the Siberian declara
tion of independence, he says the Si
berian troops are being organized un
der General Pleskoff, one of the best
known officers. It is reported that
the Siberians have declared In favor
of a monarchy. The correspondent
asserts that, although the story of the
activities of the Cossacks ln the
southeast vary, it is certain they are
standing for law and order.
He predicts that eventually the
Russians will again present a front
against the Germans. "Among the
highly Important facts," he contin
ues, "is the recovery of the Russian
self-government.. It has again estab
