Gre?k refugees from Thrace, Said to number nearly 200.000, "protest Indignantly against the attempts to frustrate our legitimate claim to freedom for our native land." The telegram continues: "We hereby appeal to the conscience ? rid justice of the people and press of the United States, asking them to as sert on.e more the great principle of liberty nad self-determination, now ? PP' ???tly ignored by the American a es at I'aris. and declare their v that the- Thracians shall not be 'r.: vver ..gain to Bulgarian tyran S- ? id n-isrule." <? protest points out that Turks ?J Ore.'ks form 83 per cent of the ?l.itlon of Bulgarian Thrace and i klph Thrace and that the Bulga .n? form only 6 per cent. "Nevertheless." the telegram says, "the American delegates are ob stinately insisting against the unani mous opinion of ?]] the other mem- i fc?-r? of the supreme council in put- I ting this absurd minoifity in control I of the country. against the avowpd | viU "f an overwhelming majority, on i th?' plea that Bulgaria needs an out let to the Aegean sea." The protest asserts that an outlet ean be provided without giving Bul garia political control of any Thracian territory, inasmuch as Greece offers facilities for Bulgarian commerce, not only at Thracian, but also at Mace donian ports. It declares It monstrous that Bulgaria, who fought for three years on the side of absolutism, phould now be championed by Amer ica, while Greece, which placed all her resources at the service of the allies, chould see her children robbed of the right of self-determination through American opposition.

By WILLIAM R. GILES. By Cable to The Star and Chicago I Dally INon, Copyrltht, 1810. PEKING, China, August 21.?The 1 bolsheviki- continue to advance to- j ward eastern Siberia, spreading1 ter ror, devastating the country and Im pressing' the inhabitants into their service as they move ahead. The enemy is now sixty versts (nearly forty miles) eastward of Chaliabinsk and forty versts (twenty-six miles) west of Tumen. The Siberian armies are falling back in an orderly man ner at the rate of seven to ten versts (4.6 to 6.6 miles) per day. The brunt of the fighting is falling upon the rear guard, covering the retreat of the main bodies. Guns, supplies, munitions and the inhabitants, as far as possible, are carried toward Omsk, where preparations are being made to feed and house the fugitives. Magyars who were formerly war prisoners and formed part of the gar rison at Krasnoyarsk took part in the recent rising there, the object of which was to destroy the railway and cut off communications. The uprising was promptly suppressed by the loyal troops. I Reports of General Massacre. Fugitives from Ekaterinburg escap ing from the bolshevist occupation say that the reds slaughtered 3,000 ! bourgeois on the first day of their occupation of the city, when a Magyar and Chinese punitive contingent ar rived. The next day another general massacre began which lasted for sev eral days. It Is officially reported from Omsk by way of Irkutsk that there Is no danger of Omsk falling Into the hands of the bolsheviki. The shortening of Admiral Kolchak's line permits his armies, who are falling back, to take up strong defensive positions, and when reinforcements arrive It will not only enable him to check the bol shevist advance, but probably to make another forward movement.
