Newspapers In Petrograd continue to
report fighting in the aouth where, ac
cording to the correspondent of the
Times, civil war Is waging fast and
furious. In several places there are
reported to have been scenes of fierce
lighting. Those include KkaterlnoHlav,
where it is naid lighting already has
lusted five days. However, as commu
nication south and east from Petro
grad is precarious at the best the re
ports convey little Information.
Cireulat. Story of Break.
The Austro-German delegates In Pe
trograd profesa tohave information
that the allies have decided to break
relations with Russia. Perhaps this Is
the reason why the officials of the
Hrltish pmbassy have taken pains to
hk.su re Trotzky that the departure of
Bfr George HucWanan is purely on ac
count of ill health and that he. would
have left last March but for the per
suasion of former Foreign Minister
Terestchenko. Trotzky also was told
that the other members of. the em
bassy have no Intention of leaving Pe
trograd at present. ,

Amidst the whirl of events involving
the fate of the nation the bolshevik
government hus found time to decreo

ing on Jan. 14. Three vowels and one
consonant were eliminate- irom me
Russian alphabet.
Although the bolshevik foreign min
ister, Leon Trotzky, announced that
the German peace terms would not be
accepted, it Is believed that the Rus
sian delegates -would return to Brest
Litovsk for tho meetings- which were
to be resumed today, to Inform the
central powers of Russia's attitude.
Tho Russians requested transference
of the negotiations to Stockholm, be
cause they would have leBS difficulty
there In obtaining full publicity con
cerning the negotiations and also be
cause they preferred a neutral place to
German eastern headquarters for hold
ing the discussions. The German
chancellor, Count Von Hertllng, told
the, rrlohstag main committee on
Thursday that the German delegates
had been instructed to refuse td trans
fer the negotiations to Stockholm.
