Shoot Persons to Make Room The report states 'that the Bolshe vists regarded all bourgeois inhab itants of the city even those ruined and dying, as outside the law. When the jail was overcrowded, the in mates who had been imprisoned were shot to make room for the new comers, it is declared. There are well authenticated cases of torture, according to Uie report, which says some -of the i>ndemned were compelled to dig their own graves and rehearsals of executions were staged during the hours before the doomed people were put to death. Men were plunged into water until nearly drowned and were then re vived so that their torture could con tinue. while some prisoners were buried alive and others were muti lated, the report states. Women were forced to dig trenches, were often flogged and sometimes even killed, it is said. Peasants were forbidden last June to take provisions into the city. Some people liid supplies, but these were found and seized by the Bol shevist, who spread terror through out the whole region near Perm.

League to Guide Colonies "This plan is not exactly defined," writes the correspondent, "but in principle It would make it man datory for the various powers to ad minister the colonies subject to the control of the League of Nations."

As regards the Pacific, Australia claims New Guinea and the Bis marck Archipelago: New Zealand claims Samoa, and Japan desires the Marshalls and Carolines. Japan also suggests an equatorial declima tion between British and Japanese influence in the Pacific. The Mail correspondent refers to the Angle-Japanese "secret" treaty of 1915 which assigned the Marshalls and Carolines to Japan, and adds: "Such possession would be very distasteful to the United States and American political opinion is that if President Wilson agrees to this mot e his power will be seriously im paired.
