shown conclusively by the statistics

urban population, meaning the resi

About 67 per cent of thia plant energy

It Is eatlmated that this sum will be
needed In Uie erection of the adminis

Trlest to. await Instructions from the
State Department at Washington after
recognition had been refused by the

to Mr. Kthiltigcr: "We were surprised
at this action on the part of your gov
ernment In asking u to recognize you
and protect you when Uie United
States had not recogrlzed us."
Dr. Orosrtich anc Foreign Minister
Rpringettl were very cordial to Mr.
Kebllnger, saying In effect: "We muat
assure you that there la nothing per
sonal nbout this. We know you and
gladly would recognize you, and would
be honored In having such an esteemed
representative as you, but the diplo
matic relations existing between our
nation and your Government do not
permit us to recognize you."
It Is learned from the Flume author
ities that Consul Kobllnger'a Instruc
tions from the State Department were
that he was to make plain to the Pro
visional (iovertMiient Unit his establish
ment of a Consulate at Flume waa not
to be construed as recognition of the
prosent Government, but that the
American Consulate waa there ready
to curry on consular business, and that,
as It sought the permission, recognition
and protection of the present authori
ties, the arrangement waa the same
as prevailed under the old Interallied
occupation before Gatiriele d'Annun

occupied Uie post when the poet-aviator

fusal of Flume authorities to recog

cerned. No ship can leave Flume for

Reports from Russia are unccrUin,
but it aeems probable thst a counter
revolution is under way. The Bol
shevlst leader, Trotsky, is said to
have offered a reward for the bodv
of the opposing leader and a counter
reward waa offered for the body of
Trotsky. Petrograd was reported tn
be in flames during the week. Refu
gees report that the Bolshevist sol
diers are not proving loval and can.
not be trusted. It is believed tha
Kerensky, the former Russian leader,
is connected with the counter revolu
tion. The occupation of Germany bv the
Allies continues and no resistance la
offered. The German minister. Rim.
onds, is feeling the results of hia
bold stand, as the people are holding
him responsible. In the occupation
many hidden arms are being found
and the delivery of them to the Af
lies is demanded. The reparation
problem seems to be complicated by
a disagreement as to the amount al
ready paid. The French are threat
ening an added penalty In rase the
Germans do not pay the amount de
manded. The new American President and
his Secretary of State have decided
to continue the same policy toward
Russia that was pursued by the last
administration. The United Statea
earnestly supported the first revolu
tion, but it has consistently refused
to give any recognition to the radical
regime. Much pressure . has been
brought to bear to secure such rec
ognition. It' is encouraging to know
that the policies will not be disturbed
because of political differences.
The Spanish premier, Eduardo Da

An effort to prevent the Lord May

failed. He was not granted a pass
port by a United States consul, but
the passport law having been re

speaks for the cause of Ireland. An
exception could be granted by the
President, but it is not likely that
any action will be taken at all.
The island of Yap cornea into prom
