In vain the peasants protested to
their local authorities and finally to

current in Russia which throws

Bolshevik method of food "collec

"Yes, God be blessed," replies the
peasant, "yes, little father, the land
is mine, but you get the bread; the
cow is mine, but yours the milk; the
chicken mine, but yours the eggs.
The Lord be blessed, little father."
The peasants, thus robbed and
duped, turned against the Com
inunists. The Rasvyorstka, the puni
tive expeditions, the brutal methods
end injustices, resulted in produc
ing a strong counter-revolutionary
feeling in the country. Some writers
on Russia have taken the govern
mnent interpretation of the antagon
ism of the peasants.
Thus, Bertrand Russell,by far the
most sincere and honest critic of
Russia, states in "The Practice and
Theory of Bolshevism": "It must be
said that the peasants' reasons for
disliking the Bolsheviki are very in
adequate." It is evident that Mr.
Russell did not see the effects of the
Rasvyorstka, or he would have re
ceived a different impression.
The truth is. if the Russian peas
ant 'were not so phlegmatic and
passive the Bolshevik state would
not have endured so long. As it is,
their passive resistance has co e
near terminating the Bolshevik
regime. This realization it was-not
the fact that the Rasvyorstka was
inhuman and counter-revolutionary
-which forced Lenin to his new
policy of taxation and free trade
Co-operation Influential.
The co-operatives of Russia repre
sented a great economic and cultural
force in the life of the people. In
1918 they covered the eountry with
a chain of 36,000 branehes with a
membership of *,000,000. Tfhelr in
vested capital at that time amount
ed to 15,000,000 rubles, while the
business transacted the previous
year exceeded 200,000,000. Of course,
the co-operatives were not revolu
tionary organisations, but they were
an indispensable medium between
the country and the city.
Whatever counter - revolutionary
elements there were in the co-opera
tivts were on top and could have
been elirrinated without destroying
the entire organization. But to por
mit the co-ol ratives to function
would have meant the lessening of
the centralised power of the state.
Hence, the co-operatives had to be
"liquidated." and a great factor for
tie reconstruction of Russia was ut
terly destroyed.
Now, aster the co-operatives are no
more, and the men and women that
have done such splendid work in that
movement have wasted their lives in
Bolshevik prisons, Lenin again says,
"Mea culps." The co-operatives are
now to be re-established, the corpse
is to be revived. Shortly before the
co-operatives were again legalised.
Peter Kropotkin-then on his death
bed-expressed the wish that the six
Trnitroff co-operators should be re
leased. He had known them intl
mnately as earnest and devoted
Recovery Doubtful.
They had then already spent eight
een months in the Boutirka. the
Moscow prison, because of their loy
slta to their work. They were re
leased only after Lenin had declared
that the co-operatIves must be resur
rected. It is nardly probable that the
co-operatives will ever attain to their
former strength and importance
withifn the Blolshevik state.
To call present Russia Soviet Ru.
eta or the Boshevist regime a Soviet
government Is preposterous. The
Soviets had ineir inception in the
revolution of 1905, and again came
into being after the February revo
lution. They have about as much re
lation to thei Bolshevik government
as the earl~r C;hristians had to the
Christian Church.
The Soviets of peasants; workers.
soldiers and bailors were the spon
taneous expriession of the liberated
energies of the Russian people. They
repreatned the needs of the masses
made articuls,te after centuries of
silence. Ala eady in May. June and
July of 1917 the dynamic force of the
Soyiets urged the workers to seize
the factories and the -peasants to
take the lano.
The Sovietts spread with great ra
pidity over flussia, fanned the flames
of the Octoh,r revolution and con
tinued to furnction for many months
after that event. Some social poli
ticians faile1 to grasp their signifi

Sovletr Called Shadows.
But Lenin 1a a shrewd and subtle
Jesuit; he inir.ed in the popular cry,
"All power to the Soviets!" When he
and his fellow Jesuits were fairly in
the saddle the breaking up of the
Soviets began. Today they are like
everything else in Russia-a shadow
with the sultatance utterly crushed.
The Soviets now voice only the de
cision of the Communist Party. No
other political opinion has any
thance to get a proper hearing. The
election methods practiced by the
Communists would fill Tammany
Hall with envy. On my arrival in
Russia I was told by a leading Com
munist that "Boss Murphy and Tam
many Hall have nothing on us."
Naturally, I thought that the man
was joking. Soon I convinced my
self that he had told the truth.
Every known device is employed
by the Bolsheviki to swell the Com
munist vote. If ordinary pleading
fails, threats of losing the payok and
of arrest do the work. The voters
know what to expect. It is therefore
obvious why the Communists in
variably poll a majority. Still, the

having some representation in the
Soviets. But as far as opportunity
of making themselves heard is con
crned, they might as well not be
there. The Communist claqueurs see
to it that none but Communists are
given a hearing.
In case of the Anarchists elected
to the Soviets, the Government gen

send them to the Cheka. In 1920

the workers for the third time
elected the Anarchist. In vain did
Semashko stoop to abuse and mis
representation: in vain did he shake
his fist in the faces of the workers,
calling anathema upon their heads.
Anarchist Re-elected.
The workers only laughed and
leered him and re-elected the An
erchist. A few months later the
man was arrested on some pretext.
Hie was released only after a pro
longed hunger strike, and that only
because the British Labor Mission
wsas in Moscow at the time and the
Bosheviki were anxious to avoid a
scandal. Before I left Moscow, De
Derber 1, 1921, three Anarchist
members of the Moscow Soviet had
been arrested. One was exiled from
the capital; the other two, as I
have learned since, have had a
oharge of "banditry and under

thema very serious charge, usu
ally followed by shooting without

been too outspoken In the Soviet.
They had to be "removed."
One can easily see that neither the
Moscow Soviet nor any other Soviet
has any Independent voice or func

of speech there. In the Soviets, as

The mysterious intrigue which
cast the shadow of suspicion on
the arms conference treaties while
they were being framed have now
extended to the floor of the
United States Senate. Although
Senator Lodge, ,with the other
conference delegates, signed a spe
cial declaration exempting domes
tic questions from the -perations
of the four-power alliance, he now
refusee to permit the Senate to
ratif that document, apparently
in fear that Japan would expose
the thole fraud by refusing to
consent to a similar ratification.
When Senator Hitchcock cor
nered the Massachusetts states
man on Saturday. the latter pro
fessed a readiness to permit the
Senate to ratify the document
which guaranteed the exemption
of domestic questions. Yesterday,
however, he presented a new sub
terfuge. Instead of allowing the
Senate to ratify the formal con.
vention which the delegates had
signed, the chairman of the For
eign Relations Committee under
took to emasculate its power and
refused to permit the Senate to
do more than to incorporate its
text in a Senatorial reservation,
which he said he would accept as
an addition to the ratification of
the supplemental four-power
treaty that takes from the main
land of Japan the blessings of
the four-power alliance.
Refuses to Explain.
At no time has Senator Lodge
dared to explain why he refuses

Senators Robinson, Hitchcock

out that this would leave the Pa

any attempt by Japan to farce
a reference to an international

The Lodge temper has not been
improved by the events of Friday

the day's debate was as irsacible
as ever. Believing himself back

and such Democrats as Senator
Underwood may still he able to

the Massachusetts Senator fight

has changed frgnt twice since the
ill-starred moment in which he
rode roughshod over Senator

still plenty of opportunities to
force him to give a more respect
ful hearing of the issue. It seems
particularly likely that a bonfire
will be started on the Iactfio
coast, where the Japanese Immi

than in the Massachusetts bay

safeguard anything against Jap

is looked upon as a subterfuge
rather than a protection.

seems doubly Interesting because
Senator Shortridge had placed a
100 per cent faith in the formal
declaration that all domestic ques
tions would be specifically ex
empted from the treaty's opera
