Russia Confident Army Will Check Germans in Spring Reliet on Winter Weather for Time to Complete Reorganization Famine Now Feared Disorganization of Railways Preventa Proper Food Diatribution By Arthur S. Draper LONDONi Oct .9.? From a goTern ment representative arrived recently from Petrograd I have learned the'fol? lowing: 1. N'o peace offer haa been made to Russia since the fall of Riga. 2. The Russian economic aluation ia so bad that many acctiona will auffer privations approximatlng famine in a short time. Wants No SejxanU? Pe?ce 3. Ruasia wnnts, and intends to work for, an early but not a aeparate peace. 4. Ruaaian democracy haa come to stay, and aSl elasses are agreed that it would bo fatal to ita succesa to con clude a separate peace. G. Thc army is being entirely reor ganized. 6. America ifl conaidered Russia's [ best friend, and Russia ls extremeh grateful for her help and sympathy. 7. Russia will follow America's lead in the Allied conference. 8. The Russian government recog nizes tho value of publicity and is now organizing in every Allied capital a bureau whose duty it will be to tell the truth about all questions in which Kus-'ia is involved. When the Provisional Government took charge of the army they found one bayonct to every fifteen soldiers. By reducing the size of the army thi food . ituation was relieved somewhat, while tho army was less unwieldy. The manitloni problem was extremely dif? ficult b.caus. of the disorganization of th'1 railway .ystem, and improve mtrit araa made only gradually. Petrograd Believed Safe Russian militnrv experts believe the i Geraaai will not attempt to take Pet? rograd this winter because of the 1 weather, and that by spring the Ru_ : "-ian army will be in a position to meet the attack, however powrful it is. it is r.ot denied that there is a heavy atmosphere of war weaii_.es.

Tin rnass of the people ha\ e little education and small reason to love tne Ktate as governed under ' the old r.gimc. In roorgaaiaiag tha Russian army the to. iirnm.r ii. hns had lo contend with these f.aets. The government is opti e regard iag th" future of its fight? ing force, bu*. it offer-- no forecasts, as thf* trmr when the Russians will be able to take the offensive is far dis* tant. Ofl the economic aide, there is food | enough in Russia to feed all, and yet I some will starve to death. Besides the difflealtloa of transportation, a lot of | Rn-sian farmers are refusing to sell thclr products. Won't Sell Produeta They have r.ll the -paper money they 1 want, and they will not part with cat? tle, grain and dairy products without ree'eiving cloth. lumb. r, nails and shoes , in exchange, and these the government j is unable to supply in sufficient quan There is also the question of fixfd ! pricc. The agriculturists consider that thr gov.rnment has set too low a '. figure and they are awniting a rise. Despite all handicaps. the govern j ment feels that thev will pull through ! the winter. The country la being ' purged of grafters, although profiteers still abour.a. Russia'.. peace views colncide with those of America. Russia supports thc I idea of a league of nations and is op? posed to indemnities and annexations. There is little fear in Russia that the Allies will make peace at her expense. Rus.ia believes that it would be im? possible for any mvmber or group of belligerents to sacrifice another, be? cause they are "beaten to it." Russia wants a peace that will leave aa little hitterness aa possible. because she thinks that any other kind would sim ply lead to another war.
