Following the taking over
bltSodless coup d' etat by the opponents of Kerensky a -congress of
: th Workmen and ! Soldiers Delegates' Council was convened to
discus the organization of a new

j : . This new Russidn congress,
of 5rO members of whom ?50 are Bolshe-Vikis, 150 Socialist Revo
lutionists, sixty Minimalists, fourteen MinimaVist-Intefnationalists,
six National. Socialists, three Non-Partisan Socialists and the others
independent. Jt is overwhelmingly radical in, numbers, strongly for
an immediate peace with the Central Powers and stands for a dm
sion of7 the lands of the larger landholders among the peasantry.
The military committee of the council early in, the day proclaim
' t'd that officers not joining the Maximilist faction openly must be
arrested and that those military detachments whose sentiments are
not certainly known shall not be permitted to leve Petrograd for
the front.
The program outlined by the
immediate peace, a division of propnetorially held lands among the
peasants and the turning over of all authority to the delegates of the
orknien s and Soldiers Council. ; '
Jn government and diplomatic circles here discouragement over
the Russian debacle is tempered to a considerable extent by the
hope that the influence of the radicals and the pro-Germans will not
extend to the army and navy outside of Petrograd. ' This hope is en
couraged by expressions of the
London, despatches said last night, , that the ' public must re
, gard with reserve the news that had. been received since it came
' from controlled sources. "The Petrograd garrison by no means rep
resents the whole army," he said. Other London despatches quoted
Bonar Law as saying that the only reports that had, been received
had come by wireless and that the offices' of the wireless companies
were controlled by the. radical factions and the news agency from
which they emanated was controlled by such factions equally as
well. This statement he made to the House of Commons.
The department of state here and the Russian' embassy said that
they were without advices and Were reticent hut, in Memphis the
Associated Press secured an interview with theambassador who
Mid that although he was without official information he would
say unofficially that "the intent and spirit of all Russia was na td
be judged by any means by what is manifested ju Petrograd."
Reuter agencies latest despatches said that Baltic and Black
Sea fleets had declared for the Workmen's and Soldiers council and
that three Cossacjc regiments had declared for Kerensky.
In diplomatic circles it was said that it had been evident for
some time, past tfaat the Bolshe-Vikis were distinctly pro-German
ind that the Petrograd sentiment, fostered by such factions did not
extend far from the city or through the army. It was suggested
that a new government might be formed v Kerensky at Moscow
