Jn the likelihood of such action, ' it ' is. estimated ' that t more than sixty thousand Polish residents, ct-the -United- States would respond to a general call from the board of commissioners t Krowkow. .Since ancient times this board has aat at .Krowkpw,: and it is from here that all efforts for the 11b- - eration of .Toland have come in the past.; ' Tbe Austrian government many years' ago allowed- them to. sit.' here because - of . their, hostility to tRussiaT and at', times have assisted with - both advice and; money. -,t . ; ... ' At a meeting1: of -the Polish Falcon Gymnastic and Military ;. association . -held, last night Sokol - hall, mem bers signed the piedge to rospond to a. general call If it is Issued. lVl The general order for the revolution for : liberation - would originate , from ; the board of commissioners in Krowkow, an,d;would be received by the Ameri- .can board which sits in Chicago. ' It isithe ldea of 'the Polish patriots that the -time? .to make the strike for Polish 'iiberty would be when ituasia becomes so . weakened . by the present 1 war" that she could . no successfully quell'-a. - rebellion. - They j state -'that there is little or' -. no - patriotism for Kussia among - the Poles, and that their chief desire is to se the defeat of the.

In such a case as this, they would be powerless. to get bookings. - Bridgeporters who - still remain in the old country are Andrew Sentilik John Doroko,. ; Michael PIvarnic, Mi chael -Zofchak, John i Churma; John - Kolezun, and Peter Pavlovsky.
