It Is to be borne in mind that all
these acts were planned or commit
ted before March 4. 101?. the day
Petrograd received new.? of the sign
ing of the treaty by the Russian and
German delegates. They took place
at a time when Russia was suppos
edly at war with Germany and the
central powers snd when l>nine and
Trotiky were posing as the apostle.?
of democracy and free government
who were to liberate the Russian
people.
The first document, dated Novem
ber :?. 1*17. is a photograph of a
v. ry secret letter of the German
svetret service setting forth that the
C,->rman and Austrian high com
mands, co-operating with I.cninc
rnd Trotiky. "had worked out a
plan of the activities of the revolu

V. ->ikm< na and Soldiers' deputies?

and will co-operate with him."

of assassination and the arming of
German prisoner? of war aa Russian
?ol.iiers is contained In a similar
communication dated In December.
1*17. The United States government
piso has a photograph of thi? paper.
It says, in part:
'The agents sent by order from
Petrograd to kill Gens. Kaledin.

"The major also organised ? de

It Is pointed out In the accom

ierman plan hid the advantage of
not only disciplining the Petrograd
Bolshevik?, but also of disunlfying
Russia'?till further.

Owing lo the tremendous demand
? for other war purposes for copper
and the other metals that have been
? used for uniform buttons it has been
; decided that any button, no matter
( what its composition, that will meet
; th?. requirements of the Quartermaa
? ter Corps may be worn on uniform.??.
' The General Staff has bad under dis
: cushion for a long time the authorize
j tion of some other material than met
al for uniform buttona and several
composition buttons have been sub
! mitted and approved. It has been dif
i ficult for button manufacturers to
I produce a composition button as
cheaply as the metal button could be
produced. The new specifications have
recently been approved and will be
available to manufacturers Just as
-*oon as printed.
Wounded marines who return from
France will unofficially "rate" a sa
lute from their comrades, whether
entitled to it by regulations or not.
This custom of saluting the wounded
enlisted men originated among the
Marines themselves and has received
the approbation of Maj. Gen. Com
mandant George Barnett. G. 8. M. C,
who says of it: "It Is a beautiful
tribute to the spirit which prompted
the wounded man's sacrifice, and I
readily give my approval. While no
I official order will be issued on the
j subject, I shall be glad to see the
? members of the Marine Corps thus
show respect to their wounded com
rades." The wounded man will not
be expected to return the salute, a nod
of the head, a smile, or the mere rec
ognition of that fact that he Is being
saluted being sufficient acknowledge
ment.

The task of the Appropriation? Com
mittee will be to ??certain how much
of the money is actually needed dur
ing the coming year, and how much
of the expense can be defrayed by
means of authorisations, which would
be paid out of appropriations in the
next fiscal year. It is probable that
at least one-half of the total sum
asked for can be put off by contract
authorisations; thi? would necessitate
a very large addition to the $8.000,000,
000 revenue bill which th? House Is
now considering.
The Senate Finance committee will
hav? to find way? of Imposing new
taxes to bring this sum Into the
Treasury. Chairman Kitchin of the
House Ways, and Mesan? committee
Intends to allow the revenue bill to be
pass??*, by th? House ln Its present
form, leaving to the Senate the Job
of devising some ?eherne for adding
the required ?2,000.000.000 or ?3.(100.000,

DAILY MASSACRES
IN RUSSIA REPORTED
Daily wholesale massacre of Inno
cent citizens, the filling of Jails to
overflowing with political suspects by
the so-called Russian leaders are re
ported to this government in state
ments that come from a neutral coun
try. According to these gloomy ac?
ccunts. the : i tua: ion is simply tragi
cal. The situation described dates
from September 3, but as the govern
ment at Moscow and Petrograd ap
pears to be In the hands of a bloody
Tribunal called "The Extraordinary
?"ommia-?slon Against Counter Revolu
tion." it Is indicated that the horrors
depicted have been continuous since
lhat time.
It is reported from these credible
sources in neutral countries that only
a tr.w papers run by the radical Bol
sheviks are permitted to circulate,
and that there is naturally no news in
them revealing the work of the coun
ter revolutionary tribunal. One of the
earlier papers, however, statea: "The
so-called Extraordinary Commission
Against Counter Revolution has con
ducted, since last May, a campaign of
terror. Numbers of persons have
been executed without even the for
malities of a trial, and among these
many were probably innocent. Many,
in fact, did not hold the political
views for which they were executed?'
The extreme Socialists, it appears
from the information at hand, are
fighting the Bolsheviki In the same
way that they fought the regime of
the Czar. One of the Bolshevik offi
cial papers speaks in cold blood of the
shooting of ."rOO at one time.

WOMEN HEAR
SCOT HEROINE
Miss Kathleen Burke Ad
dresses Capital War
Workers.
The women of the allied countries
feel that one of their chief .duties
is to keep up the courage of the
men. This waa the statement of Miss
Kathleen Burke, of the Scottish wom
en's hospitals, la.st night at the ?'.usi
n?es Women's Council of the Y. W.
C. A. Miss Burke Illustrated this
statement by her experience with
women In a factory in France where
they were working underground in a
bombed town for ?nn average WAge of
30 cents a day. When she asked if
they were discouraged, they answered
that it waa their business not to be
discouraged in order to keep up the
courage of the men.
Miss Burke praised the way the
women in America have rallied to
the call for war workers. "The women
in this country were far beter or
ganized than the women of France or
of England at the outbreak of the
war," said Miss Burke. "In England
the only women's organisations were
the Suffragettes and the Volunteer
Women'? Aid, while In America you
had a wonderful organisation of j
women's clubs and civic centers on
which to build."
Miss Burke wears a Russian, two
French and two Serbian military
medals and the Cross of the Com
mander of the Order of the British
Empire. She has observed action In
the front line trenches and escaped
from Ostend two days before the
Germans took the town.
