^integration and Not Revolt,
Chief Menace to Soviet Rule
Period of Terror Passes, but Social Conditions Are
Chaotic; Conduct of American Relief
Workers Wins Approbation
By Harold E. Scarborough
Special C/tble in The Tribti ???

RIGA, Oct. 18.?With the Bolshevik
i revolution launched upon its second :
Stage the transition from communism ?
? the structure of Russian life is un?
dergoing its third transformation since
.1917. While political executions have'
jnot stopped, the period of terror is
\ passing.
The exhausted and apathetic populace
I finds that the Communist party, num?
bering a fraction of 1 per cent of the
whole population, is more or less firmly
i in the saddle and, being utterlv weary
of the horrors of the last four years,'
?turns its attention chiefly to the task
j of securing food, clothing, heat and the
l bare essentials of life.
The extent of Moscow's authority is
I questionable. Its mandate.' rnn through
the greater part of European Russia,
but in the far south the local military
| commanders, according to re!.able testi?
mony, impose their own sway. In the!
?cities there is no question of the
Bolshevik authority- Tor example, thi re
; is a garrison of 200,000 soldiers in
; Moscow alone.
Disintegration Soviet Peril
; The pulse of the Russian national
?lift is sluggish, and were one to ven
; ture a prophecy one might say that
the tremendous pull of the natural
I forces of disintegration and disorgani
! zation would bo far more likely to up?
set the present government than any
military movement, whether begun in?
side or outside Russia.
I have talked with cab drivers,
organisers of the Communist party,
doctors, lawyers, n bacteriologisl
formerly from Detroit; a secretary,
electrical engineers, a prof? .-sor of |
languages, now an interpreter; sol?
diers, marl'.etmen, danseuses, members
of the Russian Red Cross and many
members of the Cabinet and the gov?
All admitted the deplorable state of
the country, but the opinions as to the
cause varied videly. So far as the
government officials are concerned, it
must be remembered that, they are
likely to be overnptimistic. For in?
stance, one is ?'lid that Russian m?dical
research is proceeding rapidly, but the
doctors actually in the hospitals say
they have not seen technical journal?
tor years, while the shortage in all
i ?? :i-y apparatus and medicine is so
apparent as to brook of no argument.
Likewise it is a fact that education
general tlym before, but the
quality of that education may be
doubted. Professional life a:* such
lias almost, disappeared, although many
lawyers have found berths in the gov
crnment bureaus.
New Life Is Developing
Tin- ordinary life in the cities is un?
like anything in the Western world,
all tli?' old specialization which enables
com'iiunal life to be carried on having
been swepl away, and the new is just.
arl ' ,. In a decade there may again
be insurance men, wholesale grocers,
paper jobbers, credit adjustment and
magazine editors, but now there is vir?
tually only the government and the
people, who are beginning to pick up
the broken pieces of life to try to re?
build the smashed edifice.
In order to assign the famine to its
pr pef perspective it is necessary to
remember that it affects roughly a
sevent ii of the entire population of
Russia, but that the remainder, gen?
erally speaking, will be slightly better
off than before, because of the revival
of economic life. One thing that the
famine has made dear, however, is
that, with the possible exception of

furs, there are no stocks of raw ma?
terials awaiting the world's buyers.
The potential wealth of Russia is
t:reat, but it must be produced from !
the elements of labor and materials.
Russia's natural stamina is great.
?nd the present population represents
in a sense the fittest who have sur
vived the last seven years, but a long
winter of under-nourishment and insuf?
ficient warmth cannot pass without :
lowering the resistance standards.
Very many Moscow people, for in
.tance, have sold their household be-]
longings bit by bit each winter, until
now they have barely enough to equip
them. The people who have bought
and resold these are those who now
have money enough to pay 2,000 rubles
for a shoe shine, or 50.000 rubies for ,
a m ral.
With the majority of the frovern
men*. employees still receiving part of
their payment in. food, estimates of
the ratio of incomes '?> expenses must
be arbitrary, but i; may he .'-aid gen?
erally that without side lines 01 ti i
disposal of persona! belongings the ma?
jority of the population of the cities
cock, not exist.
As yet the distribution of American
relief administration food is not ?.vide
enough?60,000 children are now in its
rate to gauge its effect on the famine,
hut it is incontrovertible that the re?
lief administration's relations with the
(Soviet government have been satis?
factory. There is a great deal of de
? lay ami sometimes useless red tape,
hut tiie swi eping orders which the
Soviet has issued, virtually to the
| effect th.at the American relief is to
have whatever it requests, have proved
! more than scraps of paper.

Murdered Man ?** Kin
Find Alleged Slaver
After 19 Y ear si
Giuseppe de Palma, forty-five years
old, a carpenter, who has nado his
home fi?- the lasi nineteen years at 2o
Madison Street, Buffalo, N. Y.. was
locked up at Police Headquarters last
night on a charge of homicide for the'
murder of Cresenzo Tanziilo, a Harlem
r, who was found dead in his
shop at 303 East 107th Street on the
morning Of March 9, 1902.
The grand jury returned a murder
indictment against De Palma, who was
employed as chore man by Tanziilo, on ]
April ". 1902. The case had long since
been dropped by the police, but mem?
bers of Tanzillo's family had persisted |
in their search, and finally succeeded
in locating De Palma in Buffalo nine?
teen years after the murder. lio was
? arrested there on Sunday and brought.
to STew \ ork City last night.
W'hen questioned about the death of
his former employer by detectives, De
Palma said that he was innocent. He
asserted that early on the morning of
March 9, 1902, he was sent on an errand
by his employer and that when he re?
turned ho found a crowd gathered
I about the door of the shop. He said
I that failing to gain entrance to the
store he asked a man in the crowd
; what had happened, and learned for
the first time that Tanziilo had been
; shot nine! ?.Mi 11 mes.
"And then ..-.in'1 you run away?"
asked one of the detect ive: .
"I didn't run away. I just went
! homo an-.i packed a suitcase and went
i to Buffalo," the prisoner said. "My
boss was dead; that meant I was out of
: a job. 1 just went to Buffalo to get
another one. 1 been up there ever .since
? work ?ng as a carpente r."
When the police shoved De Palma
into a cell at Police Headquarters,
however, his tone changed somewhat,
and as the cell door was shut in his
face he is alleged to have shouted:
"I've seen life. 1 oon't cave if 1 do go
to the electric chair."
He will be arraigned to-day.
