He directed 1 his address against statements made by j the President, saying "his report to his ! fellow countrymen concerning those af fairs of the world which now need to' be settled" apparently had degenerated : into rather "intemperate and harsh criticism." "The inexorable facts make the issue , with Mr. Wilson," Senator Johnson de? clared. "When he says that the league of nations 'is the only conceivable ar rangement which will prevent our sending our men abroad very soon again,' and that because of it the boys in khaki will not be ordered into for? eign lands, the day's events, the pres? ent conditions, answer and confound j him. At the very timo he was making; these statements American boys were ! upon the Rhine, condemned to remain i there for fifteen years in the future, by] virtue of his action. As he uttered his ! words 7,000 American sons were being j ordered by the Paris conference (the i real league of nations now) to embark ! from this country to Silesia, to patrol' coal mines and police that territory. "As the President made his boast of no khaki-clad boys across the sea American youths were being slain in Asia, at Vladivostok and In Siberia, in j a war not declared by American people or the American Congress, but directed ! in secrecy at Paris. Senator Defines Issue "The facts make the issue with Mr. Wilson, and the issue is, shall Ameri? can boys be brought home, shall Amer? ica be America again; or shall Ameri? can boys at the behest of .Mr. Wilson and his colleagues, acting in secrecy, be sent to their death in Europe and in Asia? The issue is shall the re? public still be the master of its destiny or shall that destiny be intrusted to foreign nations?." Bolsheviki Reside in I . S. Embassv Building Special Emissary Confirms Loot? ing of the Legation at Petrograd Sew York Tribun* Washington Bureau WASHINGTON, Sept. 10.?The Amor ican Embassy in Petrograd, violated by ? the Bolsheviki in July, when all for? eign embassies there were looted by the Soviet government, is housing fam? ilies of some of the Bolshevik Com? munists, according to a telegraphic re- i port received to-day by the State De? partment. The looting of the American and other foreign embassies in Pctro- ; grad was confirmed by an investigation made by a special emissary of this government, whose report to" the State Department to-day recites that most of the foreigners who were taken into cus? tody by the Bolsheviki when the diplo? matic premises were sacked had been sent to Moscow. In the raid on the American Em? bassy, Miss Kann Same was at first put tinder arrest and later released, but sent to Moscow with the other for? eigner?. The Missi s Kennedy and Leviaguine, who were employed by the American representatives at Petrograd before the latter left the old Russian capital, were not mo'rested. None of these were Americans. Miss Sante is a Finnish employe of the embassy, .who, with great courage and loyalty, con? sented to remain there in charge of the premises and archives. She was stenographer and clerk at the embassy. Most of the embassy archa-es, fortu nately, had been removed from Petro? grad. Recently an emissary, not an Amer? ican who went into the Soviet terri? tory to acertain the facts regarding the looting of the embassy, was shot and killed by the Bolsheviki. The sec? ond emissary was successful. Americans Home After Four Years With Foe in Belgium Trapped by the world war that en? forced a stay in Europe of live years and four month;.
