Londok, Aug. 80. Now that Polish
warrior have won a free breathing

on having freedom to air their own
opinions. They absolutely Insist on a

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.

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

displeasure that the note was pub

handed to the Government, and also
because It deviated from the subject

that the Beds are not yet ready to give
up their ambition to crush the Poles
militarily. It Is suspected they are

probably will not be an Insignificant

Premier, M. Mlllerand, waa reported to

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

A wireless message, from Minsk say
that members of the Polish peaoa dele

unsanitary conditions under which they
are compelled to exkit.
Among those who are sick Is Maurice
Pate, Denver, a member of the Ameri

The Denver man accompanied the dele
gation, together with Herichel Walker
of Philadelphia, another relief worker,
to discuss with the Soviet represents
tlves a proposal for feeding war
stricken children.
The message says conditions grow
worse each day. Tha delegates are per
mitted to walk only In certain parts of
Minsk and only at certain hours. Tha
advisory expert and the newspaper
correspondents are virtually Interned on
the premise occupied by the delegation.
The delegates are prohibited to read
the numerous Soviet placards at the

A wireless message from M.

Minister, to Prince Sapleha. Polish Min
ister of Foreign Affairs, dated Sunday
afternoon, says:
"lour proposal to transfer the nego
tiation, to Riga, which reached us to
day, come rather late, seeing that two
day before, August 27, we proposed
that you transfer the negotiation to
Eathonla and Immediately approached
the Esthonlan Government with that
end In view.
"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
