Soviet Russia Suffers Under Burden of Hate; Life Loses All Value Stockholm, Sunday, Sept. S.— Bolshevik Russia is suffering the consequences of class hatred in its most violent expression. Human life has lost all value and foreigners and Russians alike are at the mercy f officials who kill without trial. Such were the conditions, at any rate, when the Associated Press cor respondent at Moscow left Russia recently and traveled hence with the party of American refugees that has j irrived here. Since War Minister Trotzky pro- | voked the Czecho-Slovak opposition | by breaking his jiledge to let the I fzech-Slovaks leave Russia in peace j the class hatred upon which Bol shevism is based has revealed it- j self in its full horror. Before the j Social-Revolutionists broke with the j Bolsheviki they acted as a check | upon capital punishment. Threat ened by the victorious Czechs on the Volga, the entente movements from Archangel and Siberia and general ! internal uprisings, the Bolshevik leaders are madly prodding their Suspected opponents and filling the prisons with hostages.

"We here at home are at the very heart of things, and when the heart beats feebly the life-blood llowing to our bows In France runs slowly." "We must not expect the boys over there to keep up our spirits, although all their letters breathe an atmos phere of good cheer and It Is our duty to send them encouraging letters and to let them know we are back of them to the last man in our de termination to win." "The country is confronted with two grave perils—that of too much optimism due to war conditions as they stand to-day, and the possibility of an indecisive peace." "The American people have reach ed the stage of determination—we have tlie will to win." These were a few of the thoughts in a sparkling address that brought the Kotarians to their feet with shouts that set the rafters ringing. Dr. Klein has been engaged all sum mer in Y. M. C.

For several weeks the 110 th Regi ment has been in the active zone. In one letter ho says "We have dur ing the past two weeks undergone some of the heaviest shelling and machine gun fire the war has 3csn and other incidents have occurred which will be the subject of my theme some day, 1 hope, around a warm fire. • • Naturally, my company has suffered rather heavily in casualties, the big majority being wounded, but yesterday I received somt new men ta partly rehabilitate my command. Germans Retreat Rapidly "The Germans have retreated sd rapidly the past week that it has been all wo could do to keep up with them. At present we are in a small woods in • a reserve position, getting a much-needed rest. I'ltc strain was more than any of us, per haps, appreciated and it's a great re lief to eat a meal and not have dirt scattered all over it from bursting shells. Shell shock got a good many of my men and it's a pathetic sight to see a complete breakdown of the nervous system. The lloinc Support "It helps over here." he ob serves, speaking of the big pa triotic parade in Harrisburg on July 4, "to know about the in terest and enthusiasm and war work under way by all at home. One feels he is being supported to the limit and it is a comfort able feeling." * ( "Have seen a good part of a cer tain section of France in the last month and a half. We are ever on the move and indulge in trench war fare only to the extent of digging in where we happen to spend the night or if we arc shelled. • * "I've learned from persona! ex perience that the American, man for man. is above the German in courage and pep. Americans in this present counteroffeneit c have worsted Prus sians and Bavarian reserves in hand to-hand Combat. They are the Kai ser's best scrappers and aren't in the habit of yelling 'Kamerad,' as did most of those against whom my company was pitted. I learned also just what war means and how de structive the big shells are—ruined towns and hole-dotted fields with shell holes big enough to put a horso and wagon in." (u American Sector "We have drifted into a sector now that is eminently American, very satisfactorily so. American trucks predominate on the roads and Amer ican aviators patrol the heavens with their red, white and blue symbol showing plainly on the under part of their wings. Found a dugout already constructed when 1 pulled in here with my depleted com pany last night. We are still fight ing in the open and matters look y cry favorable for the Allies."

Successes also have been scored! by the French in the St. Quentin j region, where their lines join the I British. There have been indications; that the Germans intended making a stand along the Crozat canal, de fending thq stronghold of La Fere, the principal outlying protection of; the St. Gobain massif on the north.!

Foe Is Desperate - lblscwhere the French are right up to the Crozat positions along vir tually the entire length of the canal with their infantry only four miles! from St. Quentin and their cavalry patrols hard upon La Fere. 1 There has been no further marked advance by the French along the more southerly stretches of the St. Oobatn defenses before Laon, where the German resistance now is of the most desperate character. The enpmy is reported to have massed enormous numbers of guns in this region and to he hurriedly strengthening the al ready strong positions. Berlin Claims Success Infoads have been made upon the ruubsif in the west by the French, however, and there are no indica tions that they intend accepting the stabilizing of the line in this sector whieh the Germans so evidently de sire. Berlin reports an attack by the French along this line yesterday but declares it was repulsed uiong the whole front with heavy losses to the attacking forces. Northeast of Soissons the Germans reacted, counterattacking in the Luffaux rcgiqn in strong force. The French repulsed the drive and took prisoners from five different regi ments —an indication of a consid erable massing of forces by the enemy in this limited area. End Is Not Yet The German retrograde movement in Flanders seemingly is not at an end. Their artillery now is reported to have been removed to the east of LEGAL NOTICES PROPOSED AMENDMENTS TO THE CONSTITUTION SUBMITTED TO THE CITIZENS OF THE COMMONWEALTH FOR THEIR APPROVAL OR REJEC TION, AT THE ELECTION TO BE HELD ON TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 5. 1918, BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA.

Reports on the situation along the I Aisne, where the Americans have 1 been facing the Germans abreust thej canal paralleling the river on u long stretch east fnoni Conde, were lack ing to-day. The latest advices, how-1 ever, showed the Americans to have I pushed their line farther forward to! the east of itevillon, where it trended off . southeastward toward liheinis. j The village of Muscourl, about three] miles east of Kevillon and in about! the same relative, position to the ( river, was reported to be in Amer- j icun hands. As the allied armies draw nearer! to Cambral, St. Quentin and the natural defensive positions of the Germans in the St. Gobain forest the offensive movement begins to lose much of the momentum it gained and maintained while less important enemy positions were being taken. French Near St. Golmin Massif Slow progress continues to be made by Field Marshal Haig's forces in the direction of Cambrai and St. Quentin and, if the operations of the French armies under Generals Humbert and Mangin are successful in overrunning or encircling the St. Gobain massit, the German retreat must begin anew I and with greater rapidity than at! any time since the allied counter of-1 fensive started in the middle of July. British Close to St. Quentin Cambrai and St. Quentin the imme diate objectives of the British forces in the present phase of the offensive movement aie almost within strik ing distance. The British are within six miles of St. Quentin at Willevque and they have captured Roisel and St. Emllie. Along the line between Cambrai and St. Quentin the British advance has carried them into their old defense positions from whicn they were driven by the Germans last March. Further advances are being bitterly contested by the Ger mans. Germans Stiffen Defensive The Germans evidently realizing that little less than disaster would follow the fall of the St. Gobain for est have stiffened their defensive by taking advantage of the natural po sitions. Strong counterattacks against the French near Laffaux and north 1 of Celles-sur-Aisne seems to bear out the belief that the Germans will not give up St. Gobain without a struggle. French Penetrate Servuls Outskirts In addition to the protection it af fords Laon the St. Gobain position, if captured would weaken the entire German line eastward toward Rheims.
