Report Grand Duke Alexis
Declared Emperor With
Full Powers.
Rumors Current of Intense
Disorders Existing in
/ All Parts.
Stockholm, April 28.—Bv the Asso
ciated Press. — Correspondents of
Swedish newspapers in Finland tele
graph persistent rumors in circulation
there of important happenings In Rus
sia. The most definite rumor declares
that the former Grand Duke Alexis,
son of the former emperor, has been
declared emperor with Grand Duk*
Michael Alcxandroviteh as regent and
that the new government would re
fuse to recognize the Bolshevik peace
treaty with Germany.
Tlie tumors would be disregarded
litre were it not for the fact that a
- report from Vasa, Finland, bust Thurs
day declared that the transportation
of Russian civilian prisoners had to bo
suspended ''because of current dis
orders in Russia."
Finland and Sweden have hud no
telegraphic communication with Rus
sia in more than throe weeks.
An Exchange Telegraph dispatch re
ceived in London from < 'opentuigcn
Saturday reported a counter-revolu
tion had broken oui in Petrograd, it
a.dded there were persistent rumors in
Finland that Grand Duke Alexis had
been proclaimed emperor and that
Grand Duke Michael was the real lead
er in affairs in Petrograd.
No Word Received Here.
Washington, April 28.—No word was
received in official fiuailers here today
to throw light upon the report of a
new revolution proclaimed at Petrograd
with the purpose of restoring the tnon
' archy, and placing little Alexis Niko
. laevitch, son of tin- former czar, up-on
the thron*'. Neither the state depart
ment nor tlie Russian embassy Is in
touch with Petrograd, however, and if
the report were true the news probably
would come from many sources before
confirmation reached hero in official
Lloyd George Says Battle
Means Death to Either
One pf Ideals.
London, April 28.—In a special
Yiefttce to a volume containing ex
tracts from the prime minister's war
s] recliea, Mr. Lloy d George says:
"I never believed the war would be
a short war. or that in some mysteri
ous way, by negotiations or compro
mise. we could free Europe from the
malignant military autocracy, which is
endeavoring to trample it into submis
sion and moral death.
"I always believed that the machin*
whiçh has established its despotic con
t*oi over the minds and bodies of it*-
victims and has then organized and
driven them to slaughter, in order to
extend that control to the rest of the
world, would only be destroyed if free
Pépies proved themselves strong and
steadfast enough to defeat its attempt
in arms. •
"The events of tho last few week,
must have made it plain to every
thinking man there is no longer room
for compromise bete een the ideals
for which we and our infinies stand.
Democracy and autocracy have com>
to the death grip: one or th*- other
will lasten its hohl on mankind.
'It I- - realization on This is

dom will triumph. But whether it
will triumph soon or late, after a final
supreme effort in the next few month,
or long drawn agony, depends on th ■
vigor and self-sacrifice with which th*.
children of liberty, especially thos-
behind th*' lines, dedicate themselves
to the struggle.
"There is no time for ease, delay or
debate. The call is imperative; the
choice is clear.

With the French Army in France, Saturday, April 27.—*
By the Associated Press.—The stern opposition encount
ered by the Germans in their attacks in the region of the
Somme and in Flanders, near Kemmel hill, has prevented
them thus far from developing their renewed offensive on
the great scale which they undoubtedly intended. Each
of their attacks may be regarded as an effort to prepare
the way for a more extended action in the event of an
important initial success at either point, but the resistance
offered at both places apparently discouraging the German,
commanders front launching more serious attempts to
break through.
