Snatches of conversation between the peneral and the baroness reached me while I was waiting there. They were apparently discussing tho riot and my action, and then 1 heard the lady sav: "At all costs iho news of this affair must never reach the tars of the Kaiser.

There was one fellow in the room whom I strongly suspected of being a secret service agent, and I noticed par ticularly that ho was paying great at tention to ihe efforts of Muller to draw me. The man had only recently been installed in the house, and 1 later learned ho had been sent there to dis cover how it was that Muller had be come possessed of considerable means.

RIISSIS 1ST AWAKEN TO OBEDIENCE ID LI Dr. K. X. Call sell Discusses Revolu tion in Sermon at Beth Alia* ball Synagogue. ITS R R LIGIOl'S ASPECTS Inherent Weakness of Revolution, Ho Says, Is la I lie Lack of Con sciousness of Authority?Can lie Solved Only When Realized. "Russia ran only be saved when she awakens to the consciousness of au thority and obediencc to law," declared Kev. 1-Jdwin N\ Oallsch, D. D., rabbi of Jieth Ah&hah Synauonue, In speal.lng in the synagoguo on "The Inherent Wi'itkncss of the Russian Revolution," last night at S:30 o'clock. "To my mind." Dr. Oalisch said, "the inherent weakness of the llussia.n rev olution was the lack of consciousness of authority and obedience to law, and Russia can orly be saved when this has been realized and made sn'urc." At the outset Dr. Calisch said ?hat he intended to discuss his subject from a religious standpoint only, as he did not deem it proper for him to treat the political and economic conditions prevailing In Russia prior to the revo lution. However, this did not deter him from presenting a comparison of these for-'cs as existing in the French kingdom and in the Russian kingdom immediiitely preceding the revoita of the people. "The political and economic condi tion* precedinc the French revolution i't the eighteenth century were dif ferent from those in Russia preceding the itussian revolution last year, but the moral forces, or. to he more cor rect, the lack of moral forccs, were almost parallel." "There was one striking difference in the economic conditions between the two countries, and that was the tre mendous material wealth and extrav agance of Prance on the eve of her revolution and the abject poverty and penury of the Russians before their outbreak for freedom. MMI IjA It IT V I\ nr.si;m ATIOV op mauiini's ixfm'KVcrs "In both countries we find a st.'jk inc similarity in tlie desecration of religious influences, baseness, lust, greed and looseness of morals which le I to the inevitable reaction. The folly of unb? lief brought about hor rors ami cruelties undreamed of and unparalleled in the history of the world. Priests were chased out of Notre Dame with epithets hurled at th'm. and the reaction came only when t lie people saw placarded upon the walls of Paris these words: 'We Be lieve in God.' " He s^.id that although the Greek or thodox church had taken active steps in the persecution of members of his race in Russia, and had in doing this incurred the hatred of all .lews. It alone had stood to the Russian people the symbol of divine authority. "When the Jiolshevikis," lie exclaimed, "or the leaders of the revolution attempted a denial, f.s the fool that said itt his heart, 'There is no God,' tlio govern ment came crashing down upon their efforts to rebuild it." "It has been said." he continued, "that the shot that was fired ut Rex incton was heard round the world, but the shot that was tired at Herajevo was more than heard round th*? world. It has revolutionized the world, cleared the mists from the eyes of folly and shown lipht to the morally blind world. This, to my mind, is the lesson to he drawn from the Russian revolution."
