These documents show that the present heads

The first document is a photograph of a report
made to the Rolshcvik leaders by two of their as
sistants informing them that, in accordance with
instructions there .had been removed from the ar
chives of the Russian ministry of justice an order
of the Imperial German Rank "allowing money to
comrades Lenine and Trotsky 'to send others' for
a propaganda of peace in Russia" and that at the
same time "all hooks" of the Rank of Stockholm
had been "audited" to conceal payment of money
to Lenine and Trotsky and their associates hy or
der of the German Imperial Rank. This report was
endorsed by Lenine with his initial for deposit in
"the secret department" of Rolshcvik files.
An original protocol signed by several Bolshe
vik leaders, dated November 2. I'M 7, shows that
"on instructions of representatives of the German
general stalf in I'etrograd" and "with the consent
of the council of the peoples' commissaries," of
which Trotsky and Lenine were the heads, two
incriminating (ierman circulars also had "been
taken from the department of secret service of the
I'etrograd District" and given to the secret service
department of the German general staff at I'etro

nljiitant acknowledges the receipt of the two in-

were conclusive proof that on June

tirchduke which was made the pretext
for war.
Prepared, Then Found Pretx
One circular is an order from the
German general staff, dated June 9,
1!M4, informing "all induatrial con
corns" in Germany to open scaled en
velopea containing "their induatrial
mobilization plans and registration
forma" so that they might be prepared
for the war fur which the excuse had
not yet been found.
The second circular is an order of
the German general staff to the high
sea fleet, dated November JS, 1914,
cajling for the mobilization of "all
destructive agents and observera" in
the United States and Canada for the
purpose of preventing the aailing
of ships from American ports to Rua
sia, Frame anil Kngland. The order
calls for explosions, strikes, "delays,
embroilments, and difficulties" and
recommends, the employment of "an-
areluata and escaped criminals" for
that purpose.

Germany's peace proposal to Belgium was told in despatches

The peace feeler through Austria, it is officially stated here, best
finds its answer in President Wilson's Baltimore address where he
said : Force ! Force to the utmost, force without stint or limit,
righteous, triumphant force which shall make Right the law of the
world, cast every selfish dominion down iti the dust,
N'o one doubts that this will be the answer of the United States
and no one doubts that this will be the answer of the Allies.
The proposal is recognized as the long heralded peace offensive,

There will be no round table conference, no sounding out policy

hopes will give her the opportunity to probably deal separately with

Word has reached Hawaii that George
Fraser, the well known former book
keeper of the Hilo Telephone Company,
who went to the front just one year
ago, has been badly wounded in France,
where he lost his left leg in the recent
fighting, says the Hilo Tribune.
He is a brother of Frank Fraser, who
is now an officer at Hchofield Barracks,
and of John Fraser. head bookkeeper
of the I.aupahochoe Hugar Company.
George Fraser was granted leave of
absence when he left' he Telephone
company and he was assured that his
position would be hell open for him
should he return to Hawaii.
The wounded man went to Kuglnnd
when he left Hilo and it was not long
until he was given a commission. He
then crossed to France and it was while
with a bombing party that he was
stricken by a bomb dropped from a
Hun aeroplane. He was picked up and
taken to a base hospital, where the
doctors found it neceaaiiry to amputate
the leg just above the knee. The latest
word received from Fraser is that hv
