pORE LENIENT
fKUSSIAN POLICY
Lifting of Blockade Read as
Birect Appeal to People to
Overthrow Soviet.
ALMOST “ABOUT FACE”
i
PARIS, Jan. 17.—The allies today ap
parently adopted a completely new atti
tude toward Russia.
TJie suprenle council announced last
night. In an official communique, that*
the blockade agniust Russia would be
lifted at once. -The council’s action, In
the view of many political observers,
#©ntttuted a direct “about face'' from 1
Its former policy.
The council has decided, according to
the communique, to give the Russian co
operative societies facilities necessary to
permit importation and distribution of
Hnerchandise, as .well as cereals, linseed
oil, wood and other Russian products.
MORE DRASTIC POLICY
HAD BEEN PREDICTED.
The announcement followed rumors
here that the .allied leaders were prepar
ing new active military measures pgainsl
the bolshevik).
Both London and Taris observers had
believed that, in view of the
ishevik military successes, which were
admitted-to have menaced British influ
ence in Asia, the''new policy would be
even more/ severe than before, possibly
combining military action with the
blockade.
Instead came news of fthe lifting of
!he Russian trade ban.
HELD EFFORTS TO '
WIN 'OVER PEOPLE.
In some quarters it was believed the
new police does not mean any change
in the allied attitude toward the soviet
government. The allied leaders, it was
pointed out, may hope to deal with the
great co-operatic societies directly, ig
norlng the government.
Some observers even believed It may
indicate an attempt to divorce thp Rus
sian people from tbeif. radical leaders,
but the general opinion was the-power
of LeniDe and Trotzky. is too strong to
lie shaken hy any such lifting
of the blockade. . F*
\U. S. APPLAUDS
\POLICY CHANGE
' WASHINGTON, .Tan. 17—Partial lift
ing' of the economic blockade of soviet
.Russia by the allied supreme council did
not surprise Senator Borah, republican,
of Idaho, an.d other members of the sub
committee of the senate foreign relations
committee, appointed to probe the activi
ties of‘Ludwig (\ A. K. Martens, Ameri
can- of the bolsheviki, they said
today.
ISenatpr Borah, in emphasizing his
-i|hinion that “it was a very wise move,
vthich should have been made months
a ?o,” reiterated thgt the blockade “has
o aly served to starve helpless women and
c lildren, and aggravated the chaotic con
ditions in Russia.”
Other senators beside Borah were de
termined that a far-reaching investigation
of the relations, or lack of relations, be
tween the American government and
soviet Russia shall be made when Mar
tens appears before the foreign relations
subcommittee on Monday.
POSSIBLE TREND OF
MARTENS' TESTIMONY.
Martens is prepax -d to testify, it is>
said:
1. That photostat copies of contracts
made by him with American business In
terests for supplies for the Russian peo
ple were furnished British secret service
agents at New York after the originals
were seized in the raid on his headquar
■tersiin that city engineered by the Lusk
womgitttee. /
2f : That a British secret service agent
the photostat copies to London,
where they fell into the hands of Brit
ish business interests.
3. That with the knowledge of the
American contracts in their possessions
representatives of these British business
interests proceeded posthaste to Copen
hagen to enter into similar contracts
with representatives of soviet Russia.
SEES FREEZING Ol T
OF U. S. TRADE.
4. That the British representatives
used as an argument for the cancellation
of the American contracts, and the sub-,
stitution of BritWh contracts, the refusal
of the American state department to per
mit American business Interests to enter
into commercial relations with soviet
Russia, coupled with a promise that the
British government would use its influ
ence to lift the economic blockade ot
(he bolsheviki.
5. That unless trade relations between
the United States and soviet Russia are
soon permitted, the Rritish and the Brit
ish controlled neutral countries will reap
all the advantages of Russian trade, leav
ing America outside.
6. $22,000,000 worth of contracts with
soviet Russia are now tied up in this
country, and a total of $1,600,000,000 In
contracts remain unfilled here because
of the attitude of the state department
in "declining to allow American business
men to fux-nish the Russian people with
supplies.
EXPECTED TO BRAND
RED RAIDS “FRAMEUP.”
7. That the position of the state de
partment Is unjustified becifhse that not
even a technical state of -war exists be
tween this country and soviet Russia,
whlje trade relations between the Fnited
States and Germany are being permitted,
although a technical state of war does
still exist between the two countries.
S. That his mission in this country
is a peaceable and legitimate one, not
for the purpose of fostering any move
ment for • violence afidi unTest directed
toward the American government, but
onlj- to j/tomote friendly' relations be
tween the American and Russian people.
9, That the wholesale round-up of
purported sympathizers with, soviet Rus
sia by the department of justice was a
“frame-up” and that a complete misun
derstanding of soviet Russia prevails in
ecrtain quarters in this country which he
, Is seeking to correct in a friendly
spirit. y
The above is reported to be an outline
of only a small part of the Revelations
is' said to be prepared to back
lip with documentary evidence.
BRITISH 'CREDITED
WITH POLICY ‘CHANGE
'“PARIS, Jan. 17. —The decision virtually
to lift the economic blockade of soviet
Russia ‘was initiated by Premier Lloqd
George of Great . Britain, according to
the Matin today.
According to the Figaro, Premier
Lloyd George believes the bolshevlst
movement will begin to die the day the
Russian peasants are again able to
clothe and feed themselves. This news
paper said the British premieres of the
belief that the best way to arrest the
high cost of living Is to get the Russians
to begin to produce again. Europe then,
it was declared, will no longer be forced
to buy onlv from America.
According to the Journal, the move
was s cleverly calculated one by the Brit
ish. This paper asserted that the Brit
ish were afraid of a bolshevlst advance
eastward and were opposed to establish
ingl a barrier, but found a way out by
opening a valve westward.

LONDON, Jan. 17.—Uncle Sam Is light

Bill Blackbird was flying past, laughing and chuckling.
“What is that calling, Bill?”
“Better go down to the pond and see,” said Bill, hurrying away.
So they started to follow Bill’s advice. On the way they passed Pat
Pig. Pat, too, was laughing fit to kill —pig style.
“What’s the matter, Pat?” they asked.
"Just go down to the pond and see!” was all that Pat would say.
Farther on they passed Tillie Toad nearly having a fit.
Goosie blushed and drew back farther. "| —I haven’t any clothes

“Sure we will. What’s wrong?”
Goosie blushed and drew back farther. % "I —I haven’t any clothes on,”
she said, hastily. “They picked air the geese today and I haven't a feather

Ts it fair for an allotment com
pany to hold' me for taxes for the
first half of 1919 when I did not
make an agreement to buy the lot
until July 27 of that year? 1 am
buying on a land contract and at
the time of purchase the agent told
me that there was only five years
of pavement taxes to pay, and now
I find that I have six years of
pavement, sewer and water taxes to
pay. Can I do anything#
Thg practice as approved by tho In
dianapolis real estate board is for the
buyer to commence paying taxes from
the date he secures actual possession
of the property. If you did not take
over the lot until July 27 yon should
not be required to pay any taxes until
June, 1919, and they are not payable
until May, .1920. If yoff had the matter
of taxes and assessments miserpresented
to you, you have recourse against the
company and should be able to secure
an adjustment of the matter. If the
firm involved is a member of the In
dianapolis real estate board you can file
a formal complaint with the board and
the matter will be properly taken care
of.
Where can I secure legal blanks
for the real estate business? Is It
necessary to secure an agent’s 11-
cense the fttfito to do business?

made discharges , which had to be con
stantly blown out on handkerchiefs.
Some of this purulent mucus dropped
into the throats belOngng to the above
noses and made them raw and sore, with
an annoying constant tickling sensatiog.
Little“wonder tltut the eyes accompany
ing these noses and throats became wa
tery and weak—the breaths foul and the
sense of smell gradually disappearing.
But what a change has come over
these same noses and throats through the
Method . of treatment originated by Ca

some mucus disappears, because there is

become free and clear. Those stupid dull
feelings vanish—and the happy individ
uals meet their friends frankly grateful
Ahoy need no longer worry over what
gerious thing ihelr Catarrh Is going to
develop into. >
