Eraon wits meets
Russian Invasion Is Bone of Conten
tion, But Austrian Stand Seems Like
ly To Help Slavs But Little
WASHINGTON. February 28 Aswiatcd Tress) There
seems to be little doubt, says an official despatch from France
to the state department, received yesterday, that a serious conflict
of licy and desire has arisen between (iermany and Auitro-Hun-gaiy,
based largely o the resumption of the aggressive campaign
against Kirssia and the German territorial demands upon that beat
en foe.
The despatch quotes the Austrian premier. Count Czernin, a
relating in vigorous terms the statement that Atro-Hungar
will not take part in any military moves against Russia nor against
Rumania, with which nations the Austin-Hungarians regard them
selves as in process of peace negotiations.
The dispute between the allies cane to a head, it is claimed, at
a meeting between the Kaiser and F.fnprJfor Charles on the twenty
eoni, at which conference between the two sovereigns the Hap
burg stand against the Hoheniollerns was reiterated.
The Austro-llungarian stand is of small benefit to Russia, how
ever, as the Germans reuse to consider an armistice and continu
to adxance upon Tetrograd. The Bolsheviki are issuing brave sound
ing proclamations and are announcing the determination of th
Slavs to fight to the death, but the people re responding to onh
a slight extent and the greater part of the nrtny is openly mutinou
and contemptuous of the orders from their government.
An official announcement of the Bolsheviki, sent out by wire
less from Petrograd and received at London, says: "The revolutioi
will defend itself against Germany. Every possible obstacle mus
b,placd in the way of the German invasion. Germany has re
fused to grant our requester an armistice'".
' Oh the other hand; the correspondents of the London press a
Fetrograd send out highly discouraging despatches, saying that th
Germans will have little real difficulty in reaching, and oecupyinf
the Russian capital. "The Russian tfoops". reports one correspond
tnt, "have, almost without exception, refused to fign'tthe advancing
Teutons. 'We ha-.e had enough of fighting', they say in effect, 'lei
the Germans come and take us'
General Hoffman, commander of the German army of invasioi
in-North Russia, replying to a'request from Ensign Krylenko ttaav
rn armistice be entered into, pending; the signing of the peace treaty
says that the Teuton advance will be continued until, the peac
treaty is actually signed and wl not be stopped so long as ther
.V exists any possibility of the Russians not agreeing to carry out th
, peace conditions as laid down In the latest German terrris.
Petrograd announces that in the fighting in the south the revolu
tionists have entered and occupied the town of Novo Tcherask, th
capital of the Don Cossack Republic.
A Vienna despatch via Berne states that there is continuou
f ghting in South Russia between the Bolsheviki and the allied Bcr
parahians, and Rumanians.
