' Did the Russians Tiptoe by London? LONDON, Sept. 20. For weeks there has been in circulation a report relative to the employment of Russian troops in the western riieater of war, which is remarkable for its persistence, if for nothing else. At this time the London clubs and the London newspaper offices are split into two camps those who scoff at the Russian rumor and those who implicitly believe in it. The reports began in unassuming fashion. It was at first said that a certain number of Russian staff officers had come to England to get in touch with the military plans of their English and French allies. Then a certain small number of troops was spoken of. Before long these had swelled to two, three, or even more army corps. Official denials were forthcoming. Nevertheless, the story of the Russians continued to gain ground. An American correspondent has personally spoken to at least a dozen persons who are prepared to bet anything that the Russians are here, or have been here and are now in France. None the less, first-hand testimony as to their advent is remarkable for its absence. In at least two London newspaper offices it is firmly believed that "the Russians" are going to make their appearance in the western field at a crucial moment. In another newspaper office every possible means of investigation has been tried, with the result that the news editor is prepared to bet $250 to $25 there is not, and has not been, any Russian force in England.

Pun rises Sl'.V TAR LB -. 5:5 Sun sets k-M At the moment of writing an indica tion comes from the press bureau that the milltai' censors are not permit ling some of the London papers to print references in dispatches from their Continental correspondents of Russians being in the field with the French and British Amid all these conflicting reports, the wise man will probablj decide that It Is impossible to predicate definitely and not hazard his money cither way. While the Russian story wnsat its height the favorite theory of the ama teur stialegist was that the "Cos sacks" had been landed at Ostend and Dunkirk and were going to make their attack ,on the rear of the Ger man line of battle at the psychological moment when the Germans were busily engaged on their front with the allied French ami British. Hun dreds of. people said that Ostend was swarming with Cossacks. "There has never been a single Rus sian soldier at Ostend," declares nn official who arrived yesterday, "that is. unless he was in mufti.' Rumor Won't Down. The star prints the following: "The dispatch from Rome that German offi cial news report the landing of 2.V).ono Russians in France has naturally cre ated a great sensation In London. "This message is the latest phase of the most remarkable movement that evci has taken place in the military hls- torv of this country.
