' The "night before he started for : Russia, TVatteky, .speaking to seve- j ral hundred of his East Side New : York.followers, said: ''I want you to remain here and j organize, and keep an organizing, ! ur.itil you destroy this dirty and j rotten Government of the United j State's?while I rcturti to Russia, ?bring on a Tcv'clivtion there, and step Russia's war against Germ-. any." The (Manufacturers' Record in commenting on tihe abo<ve says, i f'&ome months ago the Ameri'can /Defense Society, keeping close track of the movefmeiit which was then under Way for the purpose of carry-,) ing cut Trotsky's command to his' ?followers, warned the officials of | ?every leading city that efforts would be made by the Socialists and ?Anai'cfliists end Bolshevists to'bring abcut a reVoltticn for the purpose of destroying the American Govern ment.
