Information has reached tho allied

succeeded In overrunning Poland they
would bo met open hmdrd by both flic
Extreme l.eft and the Kxtrtnifs night
In Germany, each of these factions hop
) Ins to attain their own ends by further
German turmoil.
Two must danjerous motives, It was
said, were back of these Gcirmaiv
schemes. Information here Is to the
effect that each of these factions has
been secretly encourarlns the Bolshevist
Invaders and were preparing to take ad
vantage! of the disaffection created in
Germany over the proceedings at Spa.
They proposed to ue this advantage to
try to cause another revolutionary
movement In Germany, In which they
counted on aid from the conquerors of
the Poles.
Tho situation Is rcfcocnlrefl here as
the most critical of any. that has de
veloped since 19H, holding as it does,
t!i potsiblllty of a real overthrew of

London, July 14. The note of the
British Government to Soviet Bussla
agreeing to continue negotiations for a
resumption of (rade relations and pro
posing an armistice between Soviet Russia-and
Poland and also botwesn the
Soviet force and Gen. Wrangsl. the
anti-Bolshevik commander In the. Crimea,
waa read In the House of Commons to
day by Andrew Bonar Law.
The note take cognisance of the ac
ceptance by the Russian Soviet Govern-
mcnt of tho principles laid down In the
British memorandum of July 1-and of
the basis of agreement for a resumption
of trade relation and the cessation At
hostilities and agreea to a resumption
of negotiations for definite trade rela
tions as soon as the Russian delegates
return to England,
Then, proposing an armistice with
Poland, the note said:
"The Soviet Government repeatedly
han declared Its anxiety to make peace
with all Its neighbors. The British
Government Is no less anxious to restdre
peace throughout Europe, and therefore
proposes the following arrangement with
this object In view :
"That an Immediate armistice be
signed between Poland and Soviet Rus
sia under which hostilities shall be sus
pended. That the terms of this armis
tice provide, on the one hand, that the
Polish army shall be Immediately with

down last year by the pence conference

Poland I entitled to establish a Polish
"On the other hand the armlstlct
should provide that tho army of Soviet
Russia should stand at a distance of
fifty kilometers east of tills line. In
eastern Gallcla each army will stand on
the line they occupy st the date of the
signature ot the armistice.

(Jreat Britain will place no restrictions
on tho representatives which Russia

The note said the armistice with Gen.
Wrangel should be on the basis that
Wrangel retire Immediately to the
Crimea and that during the armlifttc
this must be a neutral (tone. Wrangel
would be Invited to London to dlscurs
the futufe of his troops and of the refu
gees under his protection, but would not
be a member of the conference.
"Tho British Government," the nolo
continued, "would be glad of an Imme
diate reply to this teleuram, as tho Po
lish Government has sbked for the In
tervention of-ftie Allies, and a the time
I vital and a situation may develop
which will make the conclusion of a
lasting peace far more difficult. There
fore the British Government has bound
Itself to give no assistance to Poland
for any purpo3o hostile to Russia nnd
to take no action Itatlf hostile to Rus
sia. It Is, however," bound under the
covenant of the League of Nations to
defend the integrity of Poland within
its legitimate ethnographical fron
tiers." "If, therefore, Soviet Bussla. despite
Its repeated declarations, will not be
content with the withdrawal of the
Polish army on the condition of a mutual
armistice, but Intends to take action
hostile to Ptland In Poland's own terri
tory, the British Government and Its
allies will feel bound to assist the Polish
nstlon to defend Its existence with all
means at their disposal. ,
"The Polish Government has declared
Ha willingness to make a peace with
Soviet Russia and to negotiate for an
armistice on the basis set out above di
rectly It is informed that the Soviet
Government also agrees."
Mr. Bonar Law said' tha note had been
ent with the approval of the Allies.

CoNSTXNTJNorue. July 13. The Brit
ish troops which evacuated Balum ar
rived jin Constantinople to-day. Great
Britain's giving up of the port Is re
garded by persons of other nationalities
In Constantinople as tho Initial step to
ward trading with tha Bolshevik!, which,
It is declared, the Government could not
do consistently while the British con
trolled Batum. , ,
Georglt nominally Is under the tlflls
Government, but actually Is dominated
by the oXfscow Soviets, whllo aBtum and
PctI nre regarded ns the gateway
through which an Immense trade will be
inaugurated with the Bolshevik. Ahe
Georgian Government Is looked upon as
only a makeshift through which a large
Bolshevik mission at Tlflls Is acting to
get noccssarysuppllcs which are being
shipped out by way ot Baku, the Civplan
Sea and the Volga,
Tho announcement that the State De
partment of the United States had re
moved the prohibition against trading
with Soviet Russia nt traders' risks nnd
without passport facilities, makes It pos
slble for Americans to enter the field In
which Italians and French have been
working for many months.
The evacuation of Batum by tht Brit
ish Is considered in high quarters here
as a partial victory for Krastlne, the
BBol.ihevIk Minister of Trade add Com
merce, anl a clear Indication that Great
Britain does not propose to bo out
rtrlpped In the race for Soviet trade.
