POLES AT MERCY OF SOW AT MINSK DECISION AWAITED ON RIGA PROPOSAL Tmu r Ail ftu PanflvAii Af aaaa irna I Delayed and Garbled, and Actions Restricted.

Londok, Aug. 80. Now that Polish warrior have won a free breathing place Polish peacemakers have resolved on having freedom to air their own opinions. They absolutely Insist on a neutral peace parlay city where they will not b "prisoner." In this stand the Pole havs Vha backing of the Brit ish Government The Foreign Office here learned to-day that the Polish armistice and peace en ys In Minsk have protested against the treatment they have received at the hands of the Busslan Bolshevlkl In Mink, declaring that uch treatment wa not Justified. They declare that tho Polish delegate are virtually enalaved rnd that their meisages to and from Warsaw are held up many hours, and then are garbled so badly that they are practically unintelligible. They assert that tneir movements in Minsk are so restricted that It I Im practical for them to send messages. They add that tho Bolshevlkl deliberately tied up their wlrele equipment and then blamed atmopherlc conditions. Hr4m Anxious (or Parley. The Pole now contend that they, are In a poaltlon to demand respect and fair treatment. The Bolshevlkl likewise seem anxious to resume the conference. Downing street will not Interfere In the negotiation when they are resumed ex cept to watch and see that both the Pole and the Bolshevlkl keep their word. It was stated that the policy of both the Polev and the Russians meet the British qualifications, which demanded that the Poles shall not attempt a con quest of Russian territory and that the Bolshevlkl shall not violate Polish sov ereignty or Independence. The British will not look with dis pleasure on the Pole accepting an of fer of territory beyond the Lord Curxon line, a was promised by the Reds, but they will not stand for the annexation of a yard of Russian territory by con quest. The British Government will not reply to the "propaganda note" which Leonid Kameneff and Leo Krasslne, Soviet envoys here, handed to the Foreign Office last week, until a conference has been held between Foreign Office repre sentatives and the Italian Government. Even then a reply to the Soviet note Is unlikely. It was explained that the Bol shevlkl had met the British demand not to insist on an armed mllltla clause In the Polish treaty and that a reply to the note waa not necessary. Prepare for New Drive. In so far as the etiquette of the case wa concerned, officials of the For eign Office here did not conceal their displeasure that the note was pub lished here before It was officially handed to the Government, and also because It deviated from the subject matter io make a clear attempt at Bol shevist propaganda. It I believed In official circles hare that the Beds are not yet ready to give up their ambition to crush the Poles militarily. It Is suspected they are massing forces for a new' drive, which probably will not be an Insignificant one. It Is known here that tha Bolshe vlkl have a large number of potential troop. At the Foreign Office It was aald to day that the Invitation which the French Premier, M. Mlllerand, waa reported to have sent to Premier Lloyd George to at tend the Alx-lea-Balns conference be tween the Italian and French Premier had not .been received. However, It Is believed here to be coming. Premier Lloyd George may go directly to this conference from Lucerne, where ha is passing his vacation, unless In tha mean time the coal strike crisis demands hi presence here.

"It la feared that the diverging pro posal coming from you two day later will Involve still more delay. Simul taneously with your telegram we re ceived another from Premier Wltoa, who seems to regard Minsk as continuing to be the scene of the negotiations. These divergencies, which evidently show an absence of collective decision on the part of the Polish Government, consti tute a further reason to stand by the mvltatlcn sent you to adopt Eathonla for the ulterior or negotiations."
