Kerensky Off to Front, Advise* Leisure in Evacuating Petrograd PETROGRAP, Oct. 20?Premier Ker? ensky, who, it is announced offlcially, haa again left for the fighting front, yesterday gave the Cabinet a report on hi* recent visit to the front and hii I eonversations with the general com manding the northern front. The ehief subject di*cu**ed was the evacuation ofl tYtrograd. The Premier expressed the belief that the evacuation wa* not ur? rent and should be carried out grad uallv. The announrement of the impending removal of the government ha* not caused anxiety among the populace. (ienerally speaking, the removal ia op jiosed bv the revolutionary and demo? cratic faetions and particularly by the extremists. The beginning of the removal of the government to Moscow is let for Oc? tober 25, when the minor departments Will leave. The government proper,, however, is not likely to move before i November 15. | The Central Council of Workmen ? | and Soldiers' Pelegates ha* defeated the Bolsheviki resolution against send lag .ielcgates to the coming Allied con? ference in Paris. The council decided to send two delegates to represent the ? peasants and soldiers. Owing to the elections for the Con-; stituent Assembly being decreed for Novrmher 25 the Russian Provisional Government has ordered the dissolu tiea of the fourth Puma, declaring the; mandate* issued to the Peputies null, and void, General Trheremissoff, commander ? on the Russian northern front. has is-1 sued an order condemning the agitation being carried out among the soldiers of tbe Northern army. He states that agitators are spreading rumors that all the soldiers are preparing to leave the trenches at a given date. / The diffle-dlty of enforcing diseipline in the armv is illustrated by the acquit tel at Kiev of eighty grenadiers who mutinied at the time of the enemy of feaalva against Tarnopol. lt is alleged that the jury which acquitted them was eomposed of Ma^tmaliits or had been terrorized. Priaoner Treaty Delayed j U.

Several complicat'ons r.ave arisen to impede the progrcss of the negotia- j tions, one of the more important being! the trading witb tht er.ymy act recent- j ly paflflfld by Congress. There is no particular desire on the part of this t government, howevr, to hurry th nego tiatiors, inasmuch as Germany holds not in excess of 100 Ameriean prison? ers of war and the l'nited States haa few- German war prisoners. Japanese Loan OflFer Alarms the Chinese Press Opposcd to Proposals of Nippon Munition Manu? facturers PKKING, Oct. 20. The Chinese press ll greatlg agitated over the proposed so-called Arms-Alliance loan, which a combina'-ion of Japanese munition man ufactureri is endeavoring to make to I'hina for the equipment of the Chi? nese army. The Japanese, it is understood, de? sire the control of two arsenals, and also seek to have Japanese military ad viaen employed by China. They con- ! tend that such action wcu'd be neces- ? sary to prevent the use of the arms by : the government* ef the North China provinCfll for political purposes against; the southern prevtBCflfl. They also want China to agree tfl supply Japan with ! iron. The Chinese newspaper* denounce the proro*ed agreement as a revival of (.roup o of the much discussed twenty- j one demands made by Japan some j months ago. The amount of the pro- j posed loan is uncertain, but probably wculd total 30,000,000 yen. BONWIT TELLER &CO. . Dke dpeaa//y cS/tcfr <f Ofiawationd FlfTH AVENUE AT 36?
