First-hand evidence of the r?igo of terror by the BoUhevikl in Rus sia was riven by John A. Embrey. formerly United States consul at Omsk, in an address at the First Congregational Church last night. Mr. Embrey expressed the opinion that the situation will be remedied only by the* triumph of the forces of law and order under Admiral Kolchak. He showed lantern slides of atrocities committed by the Bol shevik army. "The Bolshevik army is largely made up of gangs of criminals." he said. "Any intelligent criminal who has the ability to lead a body of other criminals joins the Bolsheviki. and they have been attracted from all over the world. Their deeds are so terrible that I do not believe 5 per cent of the inmates of Sing Sing could perpetrate them." Officers of government are chosen, be said, by popular acclaim from the most successful of the "soapbox" t,ype of orators, and they have power to put to death, without trial, any one whom they consider a counter revolutionist. Other atrocities described were the killing of hostages and able bodied young men in the captured towns, enslaving of women as was done by the Germans, cruelty to the aged, destruction of books and schools, and desecration of churches. Mr. Embrey lauded the Siberian soldiers. Investigate S. A. L. Wreck At Milford, Va., Thursday Richmond. Va.. July 3. - W. K. Duke, federal residential member of the Richmond.
