In the work room of von Hindenburg was h staff map of Poland, overflowing from the table on all sides to the floor. Von Hinden burg was inclined to switch the con versation from the war to the f'nit ed States, which he said he had long been anxious to visit. He was not so much interested In the skyscrapers of New York, he id, as in the country j west of the Mississippi valley Cali fornia, the Yosemite valley, the Grand Canyon and other places of scenic grandeur, of which evidently he had read much. The interviewer,- with effort, how ever, turned the conversation to the war. Von Hindenburg said that while the situation was vtry f.ivoranie, there was not much to Justify the ex travagant hopes based on the an nouncement of the collapse of the Russian offensive. Russians Tough lighters. "The Russians are tough opponents and are not eusily brought into mo tion," he said. "They have prepared n long series of positions. All the way from Lodz to the Vistula they are fall ing back slowly, with all the advant age oi position on their side. Yet I think they are hardly able to bring on many more troops of (piality to oppose us. "To raise army corps on this front, the far cast and the Caucasus have been slipped of regular troops, and iindrilled militia, good only fur guarding communications and other services are in the rear."

LtAtKO WlPlt lien. or, Jan. S. An urgent (ilea for law enforcement in industrial dis putes and n suggestion to the legisla ture to protest ugainst the federal land leasing system were the out standing features of Governor K. M. Amnions' message to the twentieth general assembly of Colorado, pre setted today. Governor Amnions, at the close of his term, reviewed the events of the last two years and rec ommended various legislative niiet inents which he declared had been proven wise in the light of past ex perience. Much of the message was taken up with a discussion of the recent coal j miners' strike. Referring H Indus trial disputes in general, the governor said: "This question overshadows all oth ers in Importance. It vitally affects the stability of our government. Wid ows, orpin ns, cripples, bankrupt own ers, deserted mines and destruction of property will never accomplish that good feeling between employer and (inploye recessary for the success of both and .the maintenance of good government. If our country Is to thrive or even exist as a nation all i lasses of people mpst be made to yield idle licliee to law." Sliili- Police Force. To so nte oljedicnee to law, Gov ernor Amnions urged the establish ment of a stale police force. "Public safety," he commented, "would be more certainly secured (than by the National guard) if there were availa alde a force of experienced officers lo bo called to the assistance of the local authorities nt the outset of dis turbances." If this plan should be adopted, the governor added, "the National guard need not be called into active service except in ( uses of great emergency." 'Thciv seems," the message contin ued, "lo be a subtle Influence to prejudice the public mind against the National guard." This "influence" Governor Ammons deplored. He urged that the public give Its support to the state militia and that young men be taught that it was an honor to be enrolled in its ranks. Continuing his discussion of labor controversies, the retiring executive recommended the enactment of a stat ute defining and punishing treason against the state. Pointing out that the present criminal code of Colorado fails to provide penalties for sedition against ir.o constitutional authorities, the message said: I "I recommend the enactment of Inws defining and providing sufficient penalties for treason, sedition and armed resistance to the militia or civil officers of the state and of the several r-.iintUs." Sees (.rave Menace. In the pi u posed federal leasing sys tem Governor Amnions sees a grave iienace to the states of the west .... "With insistent and dangerous efforts i to establish a federal leasing system over the public domain," the message j recited, "we are facing a grave danger lo the future growth ol the Kooky mountain country." "The general assembly should pro test most vigorously against the pas sage of Bl:y leasehold bill find urge our western senators ntiil representa tives to sti.nd together with unflinch ing firmness against every measure to place, the public domain upon a leasehold basis." The governor then oiled Ihe reas ons whlcti he said entitled the western states to the use of the natural re-( sources .vlthin their borders. : Ilclti-r Highway System I'rged. The message discussed state high ways, and urged that. In view of the desirability of a system of primary I roads iuvosh the state, particularly to secure the tourist travel to ami rrom the I'nn.imii expositions, the legislur tare should "postpone for u year further new improvements on the caoitol grounds and pay lo the road I fund th" S-uO.miO duo it for money advanced in the construction of the capllol building some years ago."
