SAYS RUSS IDEA IS TO DEVELOP POLE, NOT CRUSH Soviet Official Declares Enemy Would Be Trusted to * Build Peace. LANDLORD REAL TARGET The following interview with George Tchitcherln. foreign minister in the soviet government at Moscow, is the most important utterance which has come from a Russian office since the Russo-Polish situation grew into a vital world problem. It is most timely as U. Tchitcherin outlines in detail the peace terms which will be handed to Poland when the Russo-Polish conference opens in Minsk. The interview contains the first of ficial denial out of Moscow that the Russian army generals have obtained control and are refusing to obey the orders of the civilian members of the soviet. By FRANK MASON., International News Service Staff Cor respondent. (Copyright, 1920, by International News Service.) BERLIN, Aug. 14.—“ Russia does not intend to crush Poland, but she does plan to create a great army of Polish workmen, as a counterpoise to the Polish imperialistic landlords and as a bulwark of peace,” today said George Tchitcherln, foreign minister in the Russian govern ment at Moscow and noted as the diplo matic brains of the soviet. The latest of twentieth century news paper methods was employed to obtain this statement with the detailed peace terms which Russia Is offering to Po land—an interview by wireless. CLAIM FREEDOM IN ORIENT. M. Tchitcherin declared the soviet will claim absolute freedom of action In the orient until a general peace treaty is concluded with Great Britain. The soviet foreign minister gave the first official denial of reports tha the red army Is out of hand and that the generals on the Polish front are defying the orders of the civilian members of the soviet. He gave a detailed account of how the military campaign against Poland is being waged. In reply to numerous questions sent from Berlin to Moscow by wireless, M. Tchitcherin gave the following reply: “Soviet Russia has not the least in tention of annihilating Poland. “Russia desires only guaranties against new attacks by the Polish army. “We demand the reduction of the Pol ish army to 50.000 men, but at the same time Poland's own workers will be or ganized and the members of the trade unions will be armed to insure tran quillity. “This body of militia, composed of armed Polish workmen, will act as a counterpoise to the imperialistic Polish landlords. “Thus the soviet government seeks the best guarntee in arming the Polish workers and trusting them to establish the bulwark of peace. ADMITS IT IS NEW IDEA. “This is quite anew idea la interna tional affairs. “We have studied the question thor oughly and believe the Polish people are deserving of the greatest attention. “Russia stands ready to withdraw her army from Poland and the Tolish fron tier where only £OO.OOO will be left. “Instead of Russian opposition, the soviet government, relies entirely upon the arming of Polish workers and per mitting them to maintain peace. “Poland will retain sulfl<Je;:t arms and war materials to supply this army of workmen. “Russia will insist that Poland grant free land to the families of Polish citi zens who were killed or wounded in the war or had any connection with the war. “These are the principal points from which you will see the new era be ginning." One of the questions wirelessed to Moscow referred to reports that the soviet could not stop the advance of the Russian army ou Warsaw even if it desired. M. Tchitcherin thus answered this query: “Tour supposition about the Russian general's superseding the soviet lg truly absurd. "Neither Gen. Brusiloff nor Gen. Kuropatkin controls the Russian army. "They merely sit upon a military ad visory board. “The Commander-in-chief of the soviet army is Gen. Kameneff. “His chief of staff is Gen. Letbeteff. “The commander on the western (Pol ish) front is Gen. Tukutchemsi, a very good young communist officer. “The supreme military control is in the bands of a revolutionary military com mittee at the front. GALLS SUPPOSITION TRCLT ABSURD. “The red army is completely in the service of the soviet government and is controlled by the soviet government.” As to Greaj, Britain, M. Tchitcherin said: “Until a general agreement is reached with Great Britain, the soviet government his an abaolutely free hand in the orient. “Limitations can be decided upon only by a treaty or some other such agree ment. “I can give assurances that such limi tations be rigidly observed.” MIGHT BE LADY, BUT ’TIS NOT SO Phobia Libatus Is Name of Disease Aiding Prohi Agents. SEATTLE. Wash , Aug. 14.—Prohi bition has produced n new mental disease, according to Donald A. Mc- Donald. state director of federal pro hibition. And the new disease is proving one of the most potent weapons of en forcement of the prohibition law, be , says. Although he admits science has probably not yet classified the new mental disease, he has already given it a name—phobia libatus. “Phobia libatus is a compouunded term borrowed from the Greek and the Latin.” Director McDonald, said, “expressing in phobia an unreason able fear, and in libatus an explana tion that the fear is one against pour ing out a sociable drink or taking a satisfying draught from the neck of a bottle. “I attribute this phenomenon of the mental convolutions as directly trace able to the variety of common moon shine whisky we have with us. “At first this phobia did not exist. Then a number drank freely, some of them wood alcohol, and others quantities of fusel oil. Some died and others lingered in hospitals. The quality of the liquor being sold was not inquired into at first. “Now I find tiiat many persons will not accept a drink without, a signed and sworn affidavit of the antece dents of the beverage, and an abso lute knowledge of its origin. I find the disease as It grows does vastly more to put the bootlegger out of business than my own force of agents. It is daily spreading in Seattle.” TEACHERS' TESTS SEPT. 4.

TOO MUCH BOTTLE, M’GRAW VERDICT Doesn’t Remember Anything About Slavin Injury. NEW YORK. Aug. 14. —Manage- John J. McGraw of the Giants told Assistant District Attorney linger today he had no idea how John C. Slavin, actor, came to be found lying on the sidewalk wfth fractured skull just after a taxi ride with McGraw and auother man early last Sunday. McGraw said his mind was a blank as far as that episode was concerned. Unger and Dr. Frank McGuire of the Tombs prison called at McGraw's apart ment to question the baseball man about the fight at the Lambs' club in which he was severely beaten and to ask him how Slavin was injured. No newspaper men were present, but after leaving the apartment Unger said McGraw told him he could remember nothing from the time he was bit over the head at the Lambs* club until he woke up In bed the next day at noon. McGraw said he understood he was hit with a water carafe. He admitted, Unger stated, that he had been drinking. Unger said be suggested to McGraw that the combination of being hit with a bottle and hitting the bottle was too much for him, and McGraw, according to Unger, agreed that it was. Dr. McGuire examined McGraw and said he found a laceration on the head which was healing and a black eye. now rather faded and getting back to normal. Pulse and temperature were normal, he said. It was considered unlikely this after nodn that any prosecution would result from the affair, aa there is nobody to make a complaint.

' PARLEY IS DELAYED TORREON, CHIHUAHUA, Mexico. Aug. 13 (night)—Rumors of a hitch in the plans for complete surrender of Francisco Villa and demobilization of his army were circulated here today. The disarmament and disbanding of Villa's force at Tiahnalilo, Durango, has been postponed for a week. Gen. Eugenio Martinez and the gov ernment representatives in the surrender negotiations suddenly returned to Mexico City. The reports of a break were denied by Martinez's chief of staff and by Villa. According to the chief of staff, Mar tinez found it necessary to go to Mexico City to confer with President De La Huerta on the details of the final sur render and also to get money to pay each of the 000 Viliistas a year’s wage, amounting to about 900,000 pesos. It was learned, boweve:', that Mar tinez disagreed with the proposal that in addition to the armed guard of fifty men which the government allows Villa to retain, he should also take 150 more reformed bandits to bis ranch as farm laborers. READY FOR WAR AT ANY TIME. Martinez pointed out that under such nti arrangement Villa would always have 200 retainers at his disposal and could go on the war path whenever he felt like it. The government has already consented to the Vlliista officers, totalling 250. keeping their weapons and ammunition. At Villa's request the tiny village of Tlahualilo, Durango, was chosen for the final surrender and It will be staged there unless hostilities are resumed dur ing the coming week or unless Pancho changes his mind again. The place selected is at the end of a railroad line in the extreme northern corner of Durango. Villa evidently de sired the final ceremonies to be held In some isolated place vetoing suggestions that his men lay down their arms at Torreon on Gomez Pclacio. where large crowds could see the famous Viliistas surrendering. Villa is believed to fear that if his men are disarmed in the presence of a big crowd they may be attacked. This whole district has suffered from his raids and many of the people would like to see him dead. WOULD DISARM IN DRY TOWN. Villa also favored Tlahualllc, Durango, because it is a dry town. It is controlled by an American rot con growing concern which enforces vir tual prohibition. Villa said he did not want to take ! any chances oa his men being uniuly if they were suddenly burdened with ; wealth in a “wet" town. The Viliistas are all at Tlahualilo now They have been pouring in during the ; last two days from San Pedro, where ibeir leader personally surrendered. It is like * big excursion and the ' bandits are having as much frtu at j schoolboys on a holiday. They rode on top of the freight cars i and put their horses in*!de. It looked like the old wild we*t as the reformed outlaws swarmed dowu from the roofs of the cars and led their! horses, slipping ruid sliding down th* l runways. Then ibey mounted their steeds and! milled around the town, swinging irt-; ats and clicking six-shoottr* filling the air with wild cries.

"After that they signed me up on a contract which guaranteed me $lO a week, rain or shine, and $3 a day when I got a chance to work. “For a long time they used me on daredevil stunts to save their stars, and they almost killed me dMng it. “This is where the ‘long, bard grind’ came in. “I spent one stretch of nine months in the_Jiospltel with a broken leg, three months with a broken arm, and four months with a fractured skull, Incurred when an actor playing the part of a policeman got too realistic with his riot club.” Eventually Blue fought his way to the point where he got, to play vllllan parts opposite Douglas Fairbanks.

Benharn, republican, who was elected by a majority of 528. due, republican iesde-8 say, to local issues that defeated the democratic nominee. ** liecaiar county is regarded as the only nor Sally republican one in the en tire Fourth district. Os the eight counties of the Sixth. Franklin. Hancock and Shelby are nor mally democratic, and if the eleven coun ties in the Fourth a-re parceled out to the Third and Sixth, Decatur probably will be assigned to tbe Sixth. Republicans leaders fear three or four democratic counties of the Fourth would be assigned to the Sixth, transforming it frem a normally republican to s doubtful district. The Third district also is regarded as democratic territory, for only at rare in tervals does a republican represent it in congress. Bhould several Fourth district coun ties bo assigned to tbe Third, republican leaders say the Third would become a demucrsitc stronghold. Republicans leader* in both the Third and Sixth districts are planning to make a sharp united protest over tbe dismem berment of the Fourth. Speakers Announced for Irish JDay Event Prof. D. A.
