PETROGRAD, Jan. 12.—The Bolsheviki are pre
paring for possible resumption of war.
A decree for the mobilization of all able-bodied
men up to 32 years of age is expected to be issued
Hnsign Krylenko, commander-in-chief, has stopped
the leave of all officers. The Bolsheviki government
is apparently pushing operations to continue fighting.
They are confident, however, that the Germans will
not attack the Russian lines. German officers are
strenuously and vainly seeking to halt fraternization be
tween their troops and Russians. Russian propaganda
is filling the German trenches.
PHTROGRAD, Jan. 12.—Acceptance by the cen
tral powers of Foreign Minister Trotsky's proposal to
continue the Russo-German armistice on all fronts for
an additional month was formally announced today.
The an.-.istice heretofore agreed upon expires.
Dispatches from Brest-Litovsk today reported that the
Bolsheviki leader, "in order to remove the central power*'
pretext that they would be forced to discontinue peace ne
gotiations if the Russian demand for transfer to neutral
ground was insisted upon," had formally announced the
Russians' acceptance of the German demands to proceed
with the deliberations at Brest-Litovsk.
Trotsky's change of front explains totally contradictory
messages received here yesterday. According to today's
dispatches, Trotsky's announcement was made late Friday.
Earlier dispatches had reported the Russians formally
withdrawing from the meetings and suspending the
Later the Russians conferred and the new move today
was apparently the result of the meeting of the Russian
The Russians' willingness to continue at Brest-Litovak
puts complete responsibility on the Germans for some ad
justment in the original peace terms.
Rather than make any concessions, the Germans sought
to cover up by the pretext that because they would not
transfer the negotiations to Stockholm, all peace discus
sions were terminated.
Delegate Bolubowisch from Ukrainia was declared to
have notified the general conference that he would adopt
an independent attitude until the formation of "a Russian
federation of states" determined exactly what relation
Ukrainia should bear to Russia.
"Adjusted Ukrainia," he asserted, "is striving for a
general peace, but must assure even the smallest peoples
I unlimited self government."
