May Be Destroyed, But Never
Will Submit, Kerensky Declares. WINS OVER BRITISH LABOR By the Associated Press. LONDON, June 27.?"I bear witness that the Russian people never will recognize the Brest-Litovsk treaty, which hurled Russia into the abyss of Annihilation," said Alexander F. Keren sky, former premier of Russia, in an ad dress t the labor conference today. Mr. Kerensky said that Russia was bending under German Insults and bleeding: at every pore, but still op posed the enemy invasion. The labor congress capitulated to M. Kerensky when he appeared on the platform at the close of a long: aft ernoon cession, during which con siderable anti-Kerensky sentiment had been vociferously in evidence. Won Over Opposition. "With his appearance the opposition to him vanished and before he had finished his speech he received a great ovation. Finally he had to leave the hall by a side door in order to escape the crowd of besiegers who were clamor ing for his autograph or a handshake. The great "Central Hall," which seats 3.000 persons and is the head quarters of the British Methodist or ganizations, was packed to suffoca tion and thousands or persons were turned away. During the early afternoon the con gress had a long program of routine business, which was continually in terrupted by the efforts of the anti Kerenskyites to heckle the chairman and the executive committee on their announced decision to invite Keren sky to address the congress. Chair man Purdy and Arthur Henderson, the labor leader, were patient with the Interrupters for a time, but finally put them down with an iron hand. There as Matter of Duty. M. Kerensky, in opening his speech, said: "Yesterday one of the members of the conference asked what right had Kerensky to be present. I shall an swer the question. I am not here as a matter of right, but as a matter of duty. It is my duty as a man who knows all that is truth, which for a long time did not reach the ears of western Europe and America. In this terrible world war the interests of the allied countries are inextricably Interwoven, and the fate of the coun try which bore the burden of a front greater in length than the combined front of all the other allies cannot be , a matter of Indifference to all the al ? >31es. "I have not come here to beg or /complain. The Russian people have ^n the past gone through trials like the present and have always emerged strengthened and renewed. Though bending under the merciless onset of Germany, bleeding at every pore, she still opposes the enemy. I bear wit ness here that the Russian people will never recognize the treaty of Brest Lltovsk. which is hurling Russia into the abyss of annihilation. "For three years Russia's soldiers had to fight an enemy perfectly equip ped and cruelly merciless under con ditions which no one outside of Rus sia can imagine.

Allies Pailed to Heed Warnings. "The great revolution instilled new courage to the tired spirits, but could not immediately revive the macerated bodies of the soldiers. It is a thou sand pities that the watning voices! coming from Russia were not heeded by the western allies. "The treacherous Invitations to peace by Germany were not unmasked j and the mass of the Russian soldiers. Incited by fanatics and German I agents, were deceived. Now they ? know what is a German peace. The: Ukrainian peasant understands how! the.Germans secure the independence of small nationalities, when German bayonets and chemical vapors are em- | ployed to rob him and reinstate all the atrocities of the old regime. "All classes of Russians strongly protest now against the tyranny that again reigns In Russia. To my astonishment, some very serious European political men consider bol shevism as democratic, although It has abolished freedom of speech, made human life the easy prey of every red guardsman and has made an end of all institutions of self government. "If this be democratic then I ask what can be reaction. The bolshevlki claim that the present state of Rus sia is a dictatorship of the proletariat, although ruthless repression is allied against the democratic and socialist parties and the toiling masses. Aimed to Paralyze Russia. "Every Russian who refuses to rec ognize this method of government is declared a counter-revolutionary. Bol shevism, the strength of which main ly lies in the disorganization of the worn-out masses of soldiers, was merely the vanguard of triumphing German imperialism. To reach its aim Germany must paralyze Russia. "That is the sure inwardness of connection between the interior af fairs of Russia and the world war. The fate of Russia has special sig nificance and value for the whole world. The Russian people alone may not be able to overcome the Ger mans. Perhaps, abandoned by all, Russia will . perish from want of blood; but she will never of her own will submit to the humiliating Ger man peace. "It Is up to you, the oldest and most mature of the democracies of the world, to settle the question ! whether it is possible to remain a calm spectator of this tragedy. 1 1 have crossed thoVttnds of miles of the Arctic ocean to tell you and America this which I profoundlj' i know to be the absolute truth." BIG DRAFT BOWL GOES TO GIRARD COLLEGE Maj. H. C. Kramer of the provost marshal general's office will pre sent to Girard College, Philadel phia, the historic bowl from which the 1,200 numbers were drawn yesterday to determine the order numbers in the draft of the young men registered June 5. The big bowl which was used to draw the 10,500 numbers from last year in the first big lottery is now in Independence Hall. With the presentation of the second bowl Philadelphia will enshrine both these historic souvenirs. Maj. Kramer personally pur chased the bowl used yesterday and has decided to present it to his alma mater. The big bowl used last year had such a wide mouth that many broken capsules fell back Into it. The moderately wide mouth of yes terday's bowl was found more con venient. PLAN VISIT TO FRONT. Eight Members of Congress Booked to Sail for Europe.

Growers Believed to Blame. With an aubndant supply of n*w po tatoes throughout the country, a sharp advance in their prices at wholesale has been made in the past week. Early in the week potatoes were quoted at from $3 to $4.25 a standard barrel. Today's prices for the same grade and quantity are for $5 to $5.50 a barrel. Dealers say potatoes are not com ing: on the market. Recent rains, it is asserted, prevent their being dug. It is believed, however, that growers are holding back supplies to get bet ter prices. Peaches are somewhat lower than early in the week. Advance of a cent a dozen has been made in egg prices. The market was today well supplied with most commodities. Range of Prices.

Somewhere on the road between Co lumbus. Ohio, and this city four Ford automobiles are headed In this direction. They are intended for use in the police department and are in charge of chauf feurs and members of the force. Maj. Pullman and Inspector Grant long have been handicapped In the work of the department, because of lack of transportation facilities, in responding to emergency calls. The addition of the four cars is expected to be the means of expediting much work, more espe cially that of the automobile squad. The department has had to depend in the past largely upon cars owned by individual members of the force. The addition of these new vehicles probably will mean dispensing with them. Their maintenance has been a source of ex nfnso to their owners. BAND CONCERT. By the United States Soldiers' Home Band in the bandstand this afternoon at 5:45 o'clock, John S. M.

GERMANY GETS WARNING OF "PROMPT REPRISALS" Czecho-Slovak Army to Take Re venge if Hunt Execute Bohe mian Prisoners of War. i Germany has been warned in a proclamation issued by the Czecho slovak army with the entente pow ers on the western and Italian fronts that the execution of Bohemian pris j oners of war by the Huns will bring | prompt reprisals on the part of the j Bohemian forces, according to the i latest advices received here. I Included in the proclamation is the I declaration that the Bohemians :?re ! no longer subjects of the Hapsburg dynasty or the Hohenzollern -dynasty, I and therefore cannot be treated as I traitors for joining forces with the I entente. They disclaim reaponsibil j ity for either of these dynasties and | maintain that the Bohemians are I under no obligations whatever to the Hapsburgs. The proclamation is the second is sued to Germany by the Czecho Slavs on the same question. In July of last year Germany captured in Russia a few of their number who had taken up arms against the Hun and they were executed. This drew from the Bohemian forcojf a storm of protest, in which the Germans were notified that reprisals would be re sorted to if the methods were con tinued. It is said by the Czechs that the Germans respected the proclama tion. The newest proclamation was is sued within the last two weeks and was instigated by information re ceived by the Czecho-Slovak army in France and on the Italian front that Germany had revived her execution methods on Bohemians. jShk Cray Hair A Tfrr meritorious preparation for restoring ratural color to gray or faded hair, for remov ing dandruff and an a hair dreading.
