ly before the time when the Mall
and Express was sold to German
stockholders represented by Dr.
Homely, now under arrest on
charges of perjury in connection
with his reports on ownership of
the stock of the company to the
custodian of enemy property.
The government believes the
proceeds of the sale of German
bonds to the Bosch family and to
others furnished the funds for the
conducting of an extensive German
propaganda which Included the
purchase of the Mail and Express
and other newspapers. This state
ment was given out by Deputy At

ning. August Bosch was seen in St.
Louis by an Associated Press rep
resentative last night and admitted
that he had purchased a half mil
lion dollars of German Bonds about
the time of the purchase by Ger

newspaper. He said the purchase
was ' made through a St. Louis
Trust Company
Wnlle admitting the purchase
of these bonds Busch said: "I

in such bonds if I had known or

would be used for the purpose of

which might be detrimental to the

EW YORK, July 12 (As

The reports coining from that ec

Who and what the Caecho-81ovak

which said: N
"It consists of Bohemians and Mora
vians of Austria, Slavs, haters of the
rule of the Hapsburgs and the Hohen
zollerns, most of whom were Austriaa
prisoners of war in Bostla and muti
neers and refugees from th Austrian
Army in flalicia, and who, since the
revolution in Russia, have been gravita
ting together and endeavoring to cross
the country and reach the Pacifle Coast
and embark for this Sountry in order
to join the armies of the Entente and
fight against Austria and Germany.
Partially thwarted In this attempt by
Bolsheviki mischief and German in
trigue, these Caecho-Hlovaks, under
commanders of their own, are taking
matters into fheir own hands. In a
country given up to anarchy, thy are
proving a nuclpus for a new order. It
seems to be quite easy. Undoubtedly
they hnve received recruits not only
from Austria, but from the Bussians
themselves. In their operations of late
their forces seem to have resembled
a ball of snow which becomes larger
nnd Inrirer the farther it is rolled. Home
thousands of them are already at Vla
divostok, while others have been at
Hnku, in the Caspian, thousands of
miles away.
History, as a matter of fact and
particularly the historv of Asia and
eastern Europe is full of instanres
of the conversion of such military
nuclei into empires The Turks were
nothing but such s band of wanderers;
the Mongols or "Moguls" of India such
another: and the Bussians themselves
converted a band of refugees into ma
terial of an Empire which endured for
hundreds of veara. It will not be sur-to-izing
if much comes of his Csechtt
