"" "We intend to begin on the first of I February unrestricted submarine war fare. We shall endeavor in spite of this to keep the United States of America neutral.

' RUS$IAN EXTREMISTS TRYING TO DICTATE The Composition of the Provisional Government. Petrograd. Sept. 28. The attempt which is being made by extremists to dictate the composition of the provi sional government was endorsed -last night at a combined meeting of the social revolutionaries and the peas ants, soldiers and workmen's deputies, which adopted a resolution that the pending democratic congress elect a committee of its own which, henceforth would, constitute the cabinet, super seding the present provisional gov ernment. It was decided to submit this plan to the congress for a vote. The Bolshevik! members who were present claimed . that all the cabinet mem bers must belong-to then- party. The conservative elements declared the cabinet must be a coalition one, -while the moderates suggested a compror mise. Their proposition was that there be a coalition cabinet but that it be' responsible only to the con gress. As the size of the congress, compris ing 1,700 members, precludes its sitting permanently, It Is planned to elect a smaller body which will claim to be the all-Russian parliament sitting un til the constituent assembly is chos en.
