O. McGeehan CLEVELAND. Oct. 10.?In +he most spectacular game ever rtaged in a world's series, the Brooklyn Dodgers v-ere overwhelmed by the Cleveland Indians in this city to-day by the score of 8 to 1. Everything that could bo trowdei into a single game was there. For the first time in the history of the game there v.asu home run with is (1 led and a triple play un assisted. Elmer Smith, a native Ohioan. who took up baseball instead of running for President, drove the home run over the right field fence with the bases tilled in the first inning. William "Wambs? ganss, who seldom sees his whole name in print because of the hissing of its ? '? lants, n -?? ?e the triple play un Issisted fifth inning. The rest do? : t matter much. The oldest inmate of these stands can hardly remember during his long career of watchful waiting around the baseball parks of the country seeing mbinntion in one game, a homer with the bases filled and a triple play unassisted. Certainly it was a combi- j nation i f circumstances that would stop any opposing team right in its tracks. It stopped the Dodgers abruptly this i afternoon. While the Indians were chiseling baseball history at their expense, the! Dodgers seemed to be wild. It looked like the turning point of the Reries and' it looked as though Speaker might make good i7: his promise to Cleveland to win four straight and the championship in the home park. Cleveland Rejoices in Thre<? Ilcrocs They sin:; of three heroes in Cleve? land to-night. Elmer Smith, the local Babe Rath, whose mighty blow sent the peilet bounding agrama the welkin : in the I'.rst inning with the bases j filled. They sing of William Wambs? ganss, Wamby, who made the triple play unassisted. They sing, too, of Sergeant Jim Bagbvandhis lucky star; Bagby, who kept the hits scattered by the aid of some fine fielding, and who added to the toll of Cleveland runs by lifting a fly into the newly constructed bleachers for a home run with two on. Cleveland has reason to be joyous. The population is about 90 per cent base? ball bur. They hav? been w-aiting eir.ee 1879 for a world's series, and now that they have it they have piled in upon them a decidedly historical base . bal! g: It was a crowded hour and three 'quarters for the inmates of this city by Lake ',.: . Uncle Wilbert Robinson gave them the best he had in the way : , to -. -headed Burleigh Grimes, his ace. The Indians crowded two real and a fieak ?ingle upon him in the very first inning. Then came the home run of Elmer Smith, the blow jucred all the hopes of Fla1 Uncle Wilbert Robinson looked some? what di after that first inning, but he did not take Grimes out. He felt thai he lodgers might batter their way past Bagby. They wore hit? ting him and the break promised to come ?<-.? ai ., minute. Hut though the Dodgers nued to hit, they got no? where in particular. (.rimes Makes Bad Gness Then in the fourth came a piece of bad guessing on the part of Grimes. With one on, the Brooklyn pitcher de? cided t? teve O'Neill, a danger? ous person, for Iiagby. Grimes had a pitcher's c itei pt for a pitchar's bat tine ability. Evidently he had .iot been told thai Sergeant Bagby is an excep? tion tr. that rule. He has hit them and he did yesterday. The hit might have been an out if the new ra were not there, but the new bleachers were there and it was a home run that scored three runs. After that (?rimes shambled out >. f the box ?in!!.;: the sweat cf suffering from his brow with his sleeve. But still Wilbert Robinson seemed to feel that there was a chance to pound Bagby to the points of Cue compass. Clarence Mitchell seemed able to hold the In? dians in the meantime. Wambsganss smothered the last faint nope with that triple play in the fifth. It came just as Brooklyn seemed bent on a batting rally that would at least make this thing a contest. Triple Play Checked Rally Two on ami nobody out, and Bagby Wavering, with the inmates of the ?tends silent and nervous, for in Cleve? land thev never count a ball game won until it's over.

German Admiral's Wife and Maid Slain; One Assassin Dead Reinhardt von Scheer's Daughter Also Seriously Wounded hy Two Masked Men in Villa at Weimar; Motive a Mystery WEIMAR, Germany, Oct. 10?The I wife of Admiral Reinhardt von Schecr, ! former chief of the German Admiralty Staff, and her maid were assassinated i and his eighteen-year-old daughter seriously wounded by two masked men who broke into the Admiral's villa yes? terday afternoon. Ono of the mur? derers, who was identified ..s an artist named Buechner, committed suicide in a coal-b;n. while the other fled. Admiral von Scheer was asleep i.. an upper chamber of the house when the murders were committed. No motive for the deed has yet been discovered. None of tho family's belongings was taken: Admiral von Scheer was one of the commanders of the German high seas fleet that engaged the British at the Battle of Jutland in l'Jlfi. For his services at that time he was promoted from vice-admiral to full admiral by the Kaiser, Since the war he has ad? mitted that Admiral JelHcoe could have won the war in its cariy stages if he had attacked with the British fleet. From 1909 to 1911, Scheer was chief of staff of the high seas fleet. He gained (he rank of vice-admiral in ;913. In 1918 he succeeded Admiral von Holtzendorfi* as chief of the ad? miralty staff. After the flight of the Kaiser, Admiral Scheer discarded his uniform and went into retirement on his estate near Weimar. From that vantage point he watched changes in his country, cheered the sinking of the German fleet at Scapa Flow and ex? pressed the hope that American justice would bring a brighter future to Ger? many. Hold-Up Gang Wounds 2, Robs 20 of $3,000 9 Masked Men Break Intp Rutherford Club, Beat j Members to Insensibility, ; Stab One, Shoot Another | Fire On Pursuing Police Telephone Wires Are Cut Before Attack Is Made; Escape in Automobile Nine masked bandits broke into the rooms of the East Rutherford Social Club, at 131 Clinton Place, Rutherford, N. J., yesterday, held up twenty men and, after using their pistols and knives freely, escaped with $3,000 in money and jewelry. Before departing the robbers beat the ciuo members into insensibility with the butts of their guns, stabbed one in the back and shot another in the head. Neither of the latter two is expected t. live. The hold-up took place about 2 o'clock yesterday morning when the members of the club were seated around tables in a back room of the club house. The bandits had previously cut all the tele? phone wires leading into the placo When the men within refused to re-1 ?pond to their knocking they broke down the doors. The members, cowed by the display of revolvers and knives, were lined up against a wall and their pockets ransacked by several of the robbers. Bandits Jest With Victims The victims evidently were known to some of the bandits, who called them by name as they went through their pockets and jested with them on vari? ous personal affairs. To further cover up their identity the thieves used a system of numerals by which they were designated in the orders of their leader. * Arthur Raabe, of Carlstadt, one of the club members, rushed to the tele? phone to summon help. One of the bandits made a lunge at Raabe and stabbed him in the back. It is believed his lung \va,' pierced by the knife, lie probably will die. David Siiverstein, of Rutherford, an? other club member, attempted to go to the aid of Raabe, but had walked less j than three steps when another of the ! Cangsters calmly took aim and fired at I him. The bullet, after cutting its way i for four inches along the skull, lodged i at the base of the brain. Surgeons who operated on Silver- : stein marveled at his miraculous es-; cape from instant death, but said he ! probably would not recover. Ten other members of the club then ? started after the gunmen, but their j lack of weapons made them easy prey for the thieves. Wielding ?heir revolv? ers freely, they succeeded in knocking each man unconscious. Leaving with a threat to come back and kill all of them if the?, made a ? sound, the hold-up men retreated to an I automobile, the engine of which was j kept going at top speed and at the wheel of which sat a masked chauffeur. I As soon as they sped away, however, a general alarm was sent out and the ' police were informed that the bandit ; ca# had gone in the direction of Newark, j Fire on Police At about half pa^t 3 o'clock a high-j powered machine speeded into Del? wanna, the police of which place had been guarding the roads. They ordered ( the driver of the car to stop, but in-1 stead he put on more power and other! occupants of the ear tired a volley at I the officers. Returning the tire, an at- ? tempt was made to puncture the tires : and thus stop the car, but the officers. were unsuccessful and the car sped out j of sii/ht, the men still firing. Less than ten minutes later a police ; alarm giving the car's description was flashed to every town in New Jersey | and motorcycle policemen set out to I capture it. The police have accurate descrip? tions of tho bandits.

Bombardment Centered on ? Article X; Begins His Tonr in South To-mcrrow From n Staff Correspondent ST. CHARLES, Mo., Oct. 10 (On Board Senator Harding's Train).? Traveling thankfully back to his front porch to-day, Senator Harding was thoroughly satisfied that the Middle j West has determined to do its utmost to restore the Republican party to power in November. Another reaction of this tour, that took him through Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma, is a deep-rooted decision on the part' of the candidate to conduct the re? mainder of his campaign from the front porch. Senator Harding's hearty affection for the atmosphere of his veranda has been strengthened by sev? eral unhappy incidents of this trip. Tuesday the nominee will begin n speaking trip that includes engage? ments in Chattanooga, Louisville, St. Louis and Indianapolis. Returning from that tour he hopes to remain in Ohio until after election. Even the proposed Eastern trip, with an engagement at Buffalo, probably will be cancelled. Make?* League Position Clear In all of his speeches on this trip Senator Harding has endeavored to make it clear to his audiences that, his opposition is to "that" ley.gue rather than to "a" league, lie has analyzed Article X sentence by sentence. He said again and arrain, and was cheered every time, that he. would never pro? pose any scheme of international co- ! operation that had an equivalent of I Articlo X. Senator Harding, evidently sensing the aspirations of the gatherings he adtlressed for some agency of idealism that would prevent wars and protect weak nations from unscrupulous strong j ones, never failed to express his hopes I for such a plun. However, he always told them that as he was no superman, he was going to consult the Senate and the best minds of the country, in? cluding some women. From each speech of his tour it has become increasingly evident that Sena? tor Harding is prepared to accept un? objectionable features of the Paris covenant. In his speech of August 2S he said he would do this if it was ! found that the scheme was so entwined in the peace of Europe as to* make it | necessary. Evidently he has decided | that it is so entwined!, for his sole complaint in these recent speeches has been against Article X, that which I President Wilson has called the "h?art I of the covenant." In his Den Moines : speech he referred to "revising, re? drafting or remaking" the Paris cove? nant.

Wasted Rillions by War Policy V S 18,551,000,000 Spent in 19 Months by America, Exclusive of Huge Loans to the Allied Nations - Taxes at Summit In This Country Every Department of Supply Glaring With Inefficiency Rampant at Washington _ The following article is the first of a series revealing what the in? efficiency of the Administration cost the people of the United States in the conduct of the war. America's participation in the war cost the American people $18,554,000, 000, exclusive of $9,6?l?,000,000 loaned ! to the Allies. The United States was engaged in | hostilities nineteen months at a cost of | almost one thousand million dollars a j month. Iricluding money loaned to the Allies, the American people increased their debt during the war at the rate of almost $50,000,000 a day. Such numerals and ciphers are be? yond the human mind. No man can visualize a billion. Possibly one one hundredth of 1 per cent of the Amer? ican people can visualize a million ? the one-thousandth part of a billion. Yet the war took from American pock? ets or mortgaged American pocket3 at the rate of more than $2,000,000 an hour for nineteen months. President Wilson signed the war declaration on April G, 1917. Allies In Four Years England and Franco were in the war ! four years and three months, each ' mobilizing mere than. 7.000,000 men. ? England increased her national debt! about $23,500,000,000, excluding her j loans to her allies, and France in creased her debt twenty billions. Italy | wa.3 in the war three years and five months at a cost of something over thirteen billions. Our war cost totaled ' about 74 per cent of England's total | war cost, over 92 per cent of France's and more than twice as much as Italy's. The American people paid a larger percentage of their war costs through taxes than did the British peoples, while Italy and France fought mainly on credits. Committees of Congress were ap? pointed to ascertain why the Admin istration spent such enormous amounts ' of money. An investigation of the records of these committees shows that ? $1,000,000,000 a month failed to sup? ply Pershing's army in France with guns, shell?, gas, tanks and the many varieties of weapons and equipment needed to subdue the enemy. Though incomprehensible billions v-cre spent, Pershing fought almost | wholly from first to last with guns, I munitions, aeroplanes and other ma? terials either borrowed or bought from i the Allies. Records show that billions of dollars ? were spent too late and were wasted in I a program of hectic production, which ! produced virtually nothing for the fir- j ing line up to the time Pershing's forces had chopped their way through thej Argonne in November, 1918, nnd aided i in placing the Germans in a position i where they were forced to beg for an ? armistice. Allied Advisers Sent Over A search of the records, as well as utterances of both President Wilson and Secretary of War Baker, ind'icates that the Administration believed the \ war might be settled without any great ; use of American troops, and while can- ' tonments were built and camps con? structed and filled with men no ade? quate provision was made to equip them j with fighting materials until almost s\ year hud elapsed after the declaration I of war. When it became apparent through the great drives by the Germans : against, the British and French early in j 1918 that American assistance at full ? strength was imperative, the Adminis- I tration spent billions in war projects. England and France, which notions hod experienced agonies of delay in the early stages of the war and had solved ! the problem of war control when we entered, sent commissions to Washing? ton immediately after our declaration to help the Administration prepare. ' These commissions included experts in war organization and acquainted sys? tems of employing material resources j with the greatest speed and economy. ! They ottered, among other things, mod? els "and plans for the famous French (Continued on psbs fiv?) ! Wilson Won't j Cite Record To Spencer Statement To-day Will Be Based on Report of Par? ley Speech Offered by Chicago Stenographer Tumulty to Sign Reply as Proxy ? ?:- j Republicans to Refuse to Accept Any Substitute for Official Version \ From The Tribune's Washington Bureau WASHINGTON, Oct. 10.?President i Wilson will make no effort to obtain from Paris an official report of the j eighth plenary session of the peace I conference to disprove the statement] of Senator Seiden P. Spencer, of Mis-j souri, that th? President at that ses- | sion promised military aid to Ru mania and Serbia if their boundaries j were menaced, it was indicated to-day. ; Instead, the President will use a re- ' port of the confert'nce session which j he has obtained from another source. ! The White House on Saturday per- ! mitted the impression to go out that ? the President expected to receive a I copy of the official report from Paris, j and that this would be used to back] up the repeated denials of Mr. Wilson | that he had made the promise at- j tributed to him by Mr. Spencer and1 borne out by a reprint of the official minutes in The Tribune on Friday morning. It. was announced to-day at the White House, however, that the Presi? dent's statement, which will be issued to-morrow, will be base?l upon steno? graphic notes made at the peace con? ference by Fred A. Carlson, of Chicago. Tumulty to Sign Statement The statement to be issued to-mor? row will be signed by Secretary Tum? ulty, but will have the official sanc? tion o? President Wilson. Whether the White House will claim Mr. Carl? son's version is the official text of the President's speech will not be disclosed until the complete document has been released for publication. tt ?s known, however, that the Re? publican National Committee will not accept anything short of the officially attestij I stenographic report, approved by peace conference officials. In this connection Clarence IS. Miller, secre? tary of the Republican National Com? mittee, who had charge of thj commit? tee's invei tigation of the President's remarks, said : "We have known from the beginning that Pre?i.tlent Wilson did make assur? ances such as described by Senator Spencer. "The President's denial can mean only one thing?that anything is fair pnd right and any means proper if it be used to help put over on the Amer? ican people Mr. Wilson's particular j brand of League of Nations. It would be most amazing were it not for the j fact that the American people are pre pared for most anything from the ! President."

Dreher Special Cuite to TU* Tribuna Copyright, 1920. New York Tribune Inc. PERLIN, Oct. 10.?Officials of the Hamburg-American Line in Hamburg replying to-day to my telegram asking for a statement of their attitude tow? ard their contract with the American Ship and Commerce Corporation, said that the contract was the outcome of long negotiations which were inspired by a desire to do justice to national and personal interests on both sides of the ocean. The reply expressed regret that the Hamburg-American Line officials were unable to make a further statement than was published in ?luly. Thut Statement was colorless and abstained from ull expressions of opinion. Discussion of the contract in the press indicates that it is received wirh sat 5faction i : this country as a modest beginning toward a restoration of Ger? many's trade, but it is pointed o :t that the traffic must continue for a consid ' ?rable time without the aid of German ships. The Berliner Tageblatt says that "a ; framework seems t'1 have been erected or. which the further development of 1 the Hamburg-American Line can pro ? cecd." The Hamburg correspondent of ; the same newspaper writes that the German negotiators were acting in the ? interests of their company and that German shipping generally was evi? dently effecting working agreements. The magazine issued on the Bourse here says that the possibility has again been opened to Germany to enter world navigation. "The United States gets support by this contract in its fight with British competition," it con tinues. "From our point of view it must not be forgotten that these agree? ments indicate no progress toward the reconstruction of the German com? mercial marine. That task still stands untouched before us. Hence the agree? ment must be regarded as an rrdvantage only as offering employment for ships that are still to be built." The Frankfurter Zeitung says that cooperation between the North Ger? man Lloyd and the Hamburg-American line would prove to be a great advan? tage to Americans and that it was quite evidently un immediate advantage to the two German organizations that through America they obtain a pi si bi ity and pn spe :t The '. ?It.? - ;t'-;! part.es declare that the arrangement is a roa, gentlema - r?i.'* i ? ? vvspap ?".

Britain to Sink Russian Warships on Sight; Poles Seize Lithuanian Capital inclusion of Viina and Grodno Dis?ricts in Re? gion Under Control of Warsaw Is Demanded Terms of Peace Treaty Violated Outlaw Army Reported to Have Shown Disregard ! for Entente 'Barkings'; WARSAW, Oct. 10 (By The A?oci ated Press).?Lithuanian insurrection- ! ist , consisting of a group of General ! Zcllgouski's army, have occupied Vilna, | the Lithuanian capital, in protest : against the decision of the Lithuanian i and Polish peace delegates that the I Viina district shall be included in Lithuanian territory. The insurgents ? contend that the Vilna and Grodno ; districts rightly belong to Poland. Prince Sapieha, the Foreign Minister, I to-day announced that negotiations j with Lithuania concerning an armistice ! and a line of demarkation between the j ! armies of the two countries had been I concluded. The Pcdish delegates, he \ j added, had refused to recognize the | treaty between Lithuania and Soviet ! ? Russia. Lithuanians Quit Vilna j LONDON, Oct. 10.?A dispatch to ? The London Times from Vilna, dated j ; Friday, says the Polish officers at staff ? headquarters at Veronoff (on the rail? road south of Vilna) on Thursday de- ', clared that they were resolved to oc? cupy Vilna with or without the consent of the Polish government. They re ? fused to be overawed by the "bark | ings" of the Entente and the control | commission, according to the British i military attach?, Major Partiger. The popular view is, says the cor ? respondent, that the Poles are follow I ing in the footsteps of Colonel Avaloff Bermondt in Prussia, that a portion of ? the army intends ostensibly to sever connection with Poland across the j Niemen River and operate indepen? dently in Lithuanian territory. It is expected, the correspondent adds, that the troops concentrated at Oshmian shortly will proclaim a new ! Lithuanian government i.nd then open I negotiations with the de facto gov ernment with the purpose of uniting Vilna to Poland. The Times correspondent at Kovno says the Lithuanian government evacu? ated Vilna Friday almost at a Moment's notice owing to the continued enemy advance. Colonel Rebue!, chief of the French military mission, has been ap? pointed governor. It is not likely, adds the correspon? dent, that the government will return ; until the question of the possession of j the city is finally decided. Polish General Resigns RIGA, Oct. 10 (By The Associated1 Press).?The Polish general, Zellgouski, i with two divisions of Lithuanian and White Russian troops, entered Vilna ? at 5 o'clock Friday evening, according ? to the Polish communiqu? issued to- j day. General Sikorski, commanding the j army on the northern front, reports ? that General Zellgouski was compelled \ to resign his command on that front j in order to execute the demand of his j troops that they be allowed to capture Vilna "to give the population the right of self-determination." Attach?s of the British General Staff with the peace delegation say 'hey t'.i I not know if any steps have been taken i by the Polish military authorities to ? Torce the outlaw m my out of Vilna, j nor do they know if any will be taken, j The general staff and the members of ! the delegation have been insisting for j some, days that the Poles did not in- ? tend to take Vilna. The army on that j front was supposed to be moving in the other direction?toward Minsk. The communiqu? concerning Vilna is ' brief and dues not give any details ' of how great the pressure was the troops brought on General Zellgouski, which caused him to resign rather th in disobey their demand to enter the '. Lithuanian capital. Coincident with the announcement : regarding Vilna, the communiqu? says . the Poles have notified Lithuania that ; they are ready to negotiate at Orany a settlement of the entire Polish Lithuanian controversy.

LONDON, Oct. 10.?The conference to take place here to-morrow between the Belgian Prime Minister. Delacroix, and Lloyd George promises develop? ments of profound importance in the relations between England and France. Delacroix will be asked to explain frankly why his government and that of Millerand have failed to keep the agreement reached at Spa in July re? garding the question of German in? demnity. At that time it was mutually agreed that a commission consisting of equal numbers of representatives of the countries involved, including Ger- ' many, should meet at Geneva and can? vass the whole question of reparation and report later to the Supreme Coun- , eil. The British were amazed when they learned that Millerand had called the I commission to Paris and Earl Curzon was directed to send an immediate in- j quiry concerning the move. It is '. learned that the French, explanation was far from satisfactory, and conse quently Delacroix was invited to come | here. Present Difference Serious As indicated previously in these dis- ? patches, England and France have fre- ! quently been at variance, but this time ? tho difference seems to be of an in? finitely more serious nature. It is com? mon knowledge that Lloyd George and Millerand were unable to agree in re gard to Russia and Poland, but hither- ' to they have always been able to com? promise on their German policy. What annoys the British is that the inspired French press repeatedly pub- ! lished as a fact that the American ; government was lending full support to the ne* French policy toward Ger? many, while, on the other hand, English officials declare they have been assured by Washington that this was not the case. The United States is said by' these officials to be in full sympathy with the British viewpoint regarding reparation. Behind all these diplomatic differ- ; enees there is a fierce commercial Struggle. The British are determined to do business with Germany and Rus? sia, and are also determined to allow, no obstacle to lie placed in the way of the reorganization of central Europe. It , is true that there is a difference of opin? ion here as to the wisdom of this1 course?which exists even :n the Cabi-i net?but the majority favor resumption of trade relations. The success of the Poiish-Bolshevik ; conference at Riga was far beyond the expectations of most Bricish officials and they now believe that nothing should be done which wouid jeopardize ; this success. Future of League Involved These diplomatic differences may have a very injurious influence on the assembl of the League of Nations at Geneva next month. Says The Nation: "The ?cague imbedded in the Ver ?? : y is. inevitably regarded by France and the satellites of the French policy (Belgium and Polandl simply as a possible instrument for the maintain? ing or executing of the system which that treaty seeks to impose UDon Eu? rope." It even suggests the advisa? bility of Britain withdrawing from ; "this shameful or perverted league." . ?' have been strong sup porters of the league now believe that it I is lost all its p..wer for usefulness und has become a danger to interna tiona can so often be ; .. .. il g This v; ry weak? ness of thi li _ . ? consid ?red re? ble for the fai'ure of the lirus sf-ls economic conference which has just end <J. *?

Earl Curzon Warns B ?i? sheviki There Is "V? Alternative but Attack on Soviet Submarines Ch xges Plot With Turk Nationalists? Declares Propaganda in Asia Must End if Trade Negotiations Resume LONDON, Oct. 10 (By The Asso? ciated Press).?Any Russian subma? rines encountered on the hi.ch Bcaa will be attacked on sip*ht by British' naval forces, according to a note sent by Earl Curzon, British Foreig ! Secretary, to M. Tchitcherin, Rus? sian Bolshevik Foreign Minister, October 2, which is published along with other correspondence recently exchanged between Great Britain and Soviet Russia. Earl Curzon points out that he pre? viously sent a communication regard? ing a submarine launched in the Black Sea, in which he said that in view i E repeated declarations of leading mem? bers of the Soviet government that that government considered itseif in a stat? of war with Great Britain, and in view of the impossibility in these circum? stances of waiting to ascertain whether the intentions of the submarine con? trolled by the Soviet government were hostile or not, there was no alternative but to issue orders to British ships to attack the submarine should it be en? countered on the high seas. Demands Indemnity for Murder Upon hearing rumors that subma? rines of the Bolshevik fleet had put to sea in the Baltic. Earl Curzon sent hi? note of October 2. To it M. r?hitehe rin replied that Leonid Krassin, Soviet representative in London, would r" ceive instructions in the matter. Earl Curzon also demanded compen? sation for the widow and Bon of Charles Frederick Davison, leged to have been "murdered in c blood, with no charge preferred aga him," by the Soviet authorities in Jan? uary last. Yesterday Ear! Curzon sent a lengthy reply to M. Krassin's note of October 0, in which the British Foreign Secretary says some of Krassin's points arc trivial an.! far fetched, based on er roneous information or widely removed from the facts. Hi Great Britain, more than any other power, has sought to bring about pea between Soviet Russia and Poland ?'has only been called upon to stand 1> its treaty engagements to its allies by the bad "faith which characterized military and diplomatic movemei the Soviet authorities." Charges Soviet With Trifling Concernir.;-; the use of Danzig for the transmission of munitions, Kar! Cur zon asserts this was ai . . on im? posed upon the AI Versailles. Should ( ;'?'" to Genera! Wrang I the '- nd of anee indicated in the Russian n said, the position of Soul would be very different '.? m what at the present time. Delay in repatriation of Russ'an sub? jects, the British Foreign Secretni plains, has arisen solely from the con? stantly shifting demands m Soviet authorities an ' data supplied. He charge the with trifling with tie return of British prisoners ai ' with Bending troops to Persia in open viola? tion of its ptomises. Earl Curzon also charge the with having engaged in a military coa spiracy which it assisted bj the dis? patch of considerable numbers of Bol? shevik troops to opi rate ?? Turk? ish Nationalist party in Asia Minor, the movement ostensibly being ?lirccteil against British inter?s*.-; with threat? ening an invasion of Khorassan, in Persia on the Russian trans-Caspian bolder; with having created a great organization in Tashkent for marshall? ing the forces of Central Asia in an attack on British territory and Brit? ish interests; with having brought about a revolution in Bokhara with the same object, and with having main-" tained envoys in Afghanistan in an attempt to conclude a treaty -.vith the Amir openly aimed at inciting a tribal rising on the Indian frontier. Propaganda Against Britain The Soviet launched a tornado of propaganda, intr'gue and conspiracy against British power in Asia, the For? eign Secretary declares, and spent hir^e sums thereon while Russian r?? ?>? tatives were enjoying the bosp of the British covet: were engaged in friendly negotiations in London. This is a situation, Earl Cur? zon says, which must come to an end if the trade negotiations are to be con? cluded. Regarding the repatriation -f Rus? sian subjects, the Foreign Secretary f-uggests they be taken to Riga or to Reval and Odessa, to be held at the disposal of Great Britain until the British government learns ,nat the ': British prisoners have crossed the Rus ; fian frontier. He further suggests ; that the Soviet government notify all : British subjects they are free to leave Russia with their lemovable property. Earl Curzon concludes by saying that Great Britain will hold the ernment faithfully ?? pledge ta nda, either direct or in ? lUreet, and more particularly froai mil rtr. y action or propagan-la a.me,I i British interests or the British Empire \ in Asia. ?_ Submarines in Danzig Bay RIGA, r>ct. 10 (By The Associated I Press).?
