PRICE FIVE GENTS WAR-MAD FRENCH IMPERIALISTS IN THE SADDLE FURTHER SLAUGHTER OF PEOPLE IN EUROPE MADE POSSIBLE BY LOAN OF WALL STREET BANKERS (By Helen Augur, Staff Writer, the Federated Press.) New York, Sept. 13.-Set the stage for the new war. J. P. Morgan & Co. have just loaned the French gov ernment $100,000,000, and thereby have entered into one more imperialist adventure-at 8 per cent. French troops are massed in Alsace, in the Ruhr, in the Rhineland, in the Saar. Press dispatches are bring ing, piece by piece, details of France's plan to dismem ber Germany, to cut off Bavaria and all her rich coal filled valleys. The French general staff, still intoxi cated by the gigantic hatred of the war, and urged by her capitalists, has laid down every plan for the com plete disruption of the German republic. French agents are everywhere in the country fomenting separatist movements, making ready for the keen knife of war.

General Wrangel has been recognized on condition that he should hand oVer to France as soon ai possible all raiilways in Eurolpean Ilussia. for exploitation; the surplus of the Ukraine and lKuban girain, thrllee-foullrths of the exported quan tities of nllallitha and benlzine, and one-fourtlh of the coal produced in the Don district. To say nothing of paying 615 percent interest for the next 35 years on the old czarist debt to France. France is backing Po I:nd on condition that still more of I:ussia's riches he carved out for heir. All in all, the group of keen Wall Street bankers who follow J..1P. P. Mor galn's lead in backing up France are not worrying about getting 8 per cent interest on their loan for the next 25 yealrs. If that 8 per cent means the agony of the common people of jFrance and (Germanly and Poland :and Rullssia, the tall buildings of Wall Street will still be proud. If it meanlls the last gasp for GIer'lmany, the shameful militarizing of Poland, :.ll the o1101 shamllefulll betrayal of llussia, at least American business 1i1en will have proved their ability to "put it over." The loan will be paid by future wars of aggression by France, it was mll:do necessal-y by the previous warl of ,jealousy. The Anglo-French war loan of $500,000,000 is due Oct. 15, and Amlerica has insisted upon set 1lemen1t. France's share is $250, n00,000 and the new loan thus meets nIot even half. (Gold is now arriving in the United States to pay that part of the Anglo. Frenchll loan which is not mlet by t he new Morgan loan. The bankers say that much of the $80,000,000 which is arriving is Russian gold. So the United States is the latest re cipient of "Bolshevik gold." At Brest-Litovsk the German brigands took that gold and lprom ised to spare IRussia's life. At Versailles the allied brigands ordered the German brigands to hand over the Russian gold, and made no promise about sparing Ger rrany'.; life. Now France, which has been cus todian of the boodle, turns it over to the American brigands. And the American brigands don't care a hang whether Russia, or Germany or iFrance live or die. They have the gold, and they will get their 8 per Jean Parmentier and Maurice ('asenave, Frale's financial envoys who have hlyc In New T.rk arrang ing for the loan, have studiously re frained ied in their newslaper inter views fromn mentioning Russia, Po land or Germany.

Flurther indisputable proof that the managers of the Rialto theater, Butte's only noll-union aluusenlent house, are driven to distraction by the boycott of working people of the city, was given last night when 'Jinnllll' Rtowe, one of the co-own r'S of the house, through the agency of one of his pet. gunmen, Frank Oryette by name, attemplted to incite one orf the Ipaceful t pickets of the unions to violence in front of the Iheate':. When the affair happelned, the pickets, one from the musicians' and one from the operators' union, were standing in front of the house. Ac cording to one of the pickets, HIowe rushed out of the hIouse and up to le.i Main street corner, where he mIi.et Oryotte, and brought himn back to the ipickets. Pointing out the representative of the operators' union, he said, "'Watch this fellow. If he starts anything, you know what to do." Oryette answered, "Yes, I'll take care of himt." 'The pickets, relelnl bering how tie miiners' pickets were "taken care of" on Anaconda road on Bloody W\Vednesday, understood readily what wais lteanLt.

Washington, Sept. 13.-Through the almost complete censorship on news flromt Italy the United States govenm'laent receives advices which indicate Ia rapid andl ominous spread of the mllovemnent among workers to seize and operate factories in that countr'y. It is stated that Italy's national uliion of employers is determined to yield to no niore of the workers' de mands for improved wages and con. ditions. To emphasize their ulti matum, the employers instituted a nation-wide lockout. In retaliation, the workers have during the past fortnight seized scotres of factories in Ronie, Milan, Turin, Naples and other industrial centers. The great government ar senal at Venice was taken over with out resistance by the workers on Sellt. 3.

"No one in America is better en titled to have a voice in deciding whether you shall go back to the trenches than you who have been in them, you who went to France to fight for democracy.
