Thru all of their relations and ac
tivities In Eastern Siberia, the Amer
lean troops maintained only one
policy, namely, that of struightfor
ward neutrality, except when at
tacked by the bands of roving parti
sans under bolshevik leaders.
Ttie Japanese, however, with a
policy supposed to be akin to that
which originally sent the allied troops
to Siberia, molded their policy Into
different shapes, supporting military
leaders rf presenting all political and
military elements to further her own
alms and desires of controlling Si
beria and Asia.
A* long as the Japanese were In
power, thru the fores of tbelr three
Buss agents, they were happy, btit
when ths social revolutionists took
over the power at Habarovak ami
Vladivostok from the Japanese
agents, Kalmikoff and Uoanotf. the
Japanese were somewhat discomfited.
Their agent. Semettoff, at Chita, still
remained because the Japanese hod
been there in force, and had prevent
ed the social revolutionists from tak
ing over his reins of power.
The Japanese would have prevent
ed the social revolutionists from tak
lng over Vladivostok from Itoxanoff
—who had kept Gen. GaKla. the
Cxech chief and former commander
in-chief of the Kolchak army, from
power In Vladivostok—but the Amer
leans forced the Japanese to keep
hands off in that respect to prevent
bloodshed. The American position
maintained that Japanese Intervrn
tion by force would have respited In
thousands of deaths.
In February, 15J0. the official
American proclamation regarding
evacuation of American troop* was
made public and the withdrawing of
American forces was l«aui>. term
toatinc on April 1, ICO. iKijlng that
time Japanese activities were dor
mant On April }. one day after the
[ last Americans had left Vladivostok.
1 and were Itnarly all aalliug on the
, long homeward Journey, the J-tpap
cse took over every fort In Vladi vos
tok. later they occupied tbe Amer
I lean expeditionary fort* hsadquar
I ters building, in spite of a protest by
| Gen G raves.
Let me refer rather closely t« my
(' diary for what followed, for In the
e major military operation* by Japan
en April 4 and S. In which Japan
. took over a line from Vladivostok to
j Bsbarovsk. captured the entire ctty
■ of Vladivostok, an operation in which
( I more than 1.000 lives were lost and
I millions of rubles of property were
4*mag*d. I had a rather harrowing
: «gp*rten< e- an experience that I
have referred to as being under Jap
|P ane.se fire.
, This may have some bearing also
j%pon the shooting of IJeut. Uangdon.
for I was under fire less than a block
from the place where he was shot.
i At 5 :T, p m. the night of Apfl!
4 a lookout on board ths V. H f
Albany sighted two red flashes on '
tcp A the hilla In the vkinlty of
river. Bifle fire was heard
at 10:12 In the direction of the rail
I road station and Kgersheld.

connecting the office and the Al

Jfct. to see what was happening In ;
lu I In the firing.
■L*" front of the house occupied by
nben. Inagsikl, cTiief of staff of the
Japanese army, I was challenged
bj two Japanes-e sentries. The chal
Phn«re was a problem. Whether It
*ra« a grunt of surprise over see
lng me, or whether It was a per
*mptory challenge, I could not know
p I wondv if that was similar to
the circumstances surrounding, the
Ofath of I.leut. Ijtnuiiun.
At any rale I stopped and In
formal the nentry that I was an '
Aiterlran officer. That was obvious I
*n"ugh. I was In full ualform. i
'ortunately, the sentries had not '

Iferrßlltted to pass I went down
wvtlanskaya street to ('xcch In id
((Barters for Information.
'Je,i. Cecek was Inside. Deports
l«d already come to him that the
Japanese were taking over the city,
that they alrnady ha/I the railroad
station, were fortifying themselves
M ail strategic points, that several
iCxecha not taking part In the af

to the Alhsny In earnest this time,
having the Information I wished.
A* I stepped from tha door of
«'»<s-h headquarters firing broke out
afieeh and HvetUnskaya street was
swept with bullets. t saw two Chi
ne-e and a Kuaalan fall dead. 1
, dodged Into 4he first alley and con
tlnued down the hill toward the
harbor. Aa I came upon tha stair
case known aa "Brooklyn bridge"
: leading to the water front, firing
broke out all along there and I
ana cut off from the ship.
I thought of the T. M- c *■ hut
but a Jap machine gun o|»ned up
between me and the hut. The firing
waa certainly tndlerrtmlnate, for bul
let* were whistling all aroupd me. I
ran ba< k to the commercial port

said that their force® had been at

There was no atrocity committed
Against me, no overt act. But let us
1 consider briefly a mitM «f report* on
Indignities American soldiers were
yubjecisd to by Jwpaneie soldier* and
officers on numeroua occasions. aa
reported at that time to Washington
I have notes covering theae outrages
but will lummnrlt* them, a* they
are lengthy and replete with details.
Sergt Frank Itaelskl on November
1. I*l M. with two prints soldier*,
was on hla way ku k fom I litnr
ovsk to Vladivostok, wh-n. at Ut p.
m . hs stepped from the train at Via
semskaya to fill his canteen. He WM
arrested by a squad of Japane* so!
diera and taken to the station. There
he was surrounded by Japanese, In
eluding OD« civilian, who, hs gnth
ereij from remark) made, was either
accusing Itoelskl of attacking htm, or
asking Baelskl to find the man who
had struck him. A Japanese officer
arrived and after a few words, ar
dered the soldiers to hold the Ameri
can while the civilian struck him In
U:A fac>- Itaelskl swore that he was
sober, that he was unarmed, that he
had had previously no relation* what
ever with the Japanese. The Inci
dent wax called to the attention of
Gen. Otanl, who. after Investigating,
admitted the facts as *et forth, and
expressed regret.
On the evening of December 7.
IJeut, Arthur Drew, traveling In a
bnt car with I,leuL Gabrlelson and
two private soldier*, arrived at Much
naya from Bpasskoe. At Muchnaya
he left the ear with one of the enlist
ed men to seek food. Finding noth
lng. he sent the man back and start
ed back hlmaelf. his elbow barely
touching a Japanese soldier in pas*
Ten feet farther on the soldier at
tacked Drew from behind, striking
Drew In the face as he turned. Drew
knocked the man nwsy and started
for him. The soldier was not armed,
therefore was not a sentry on duty
He went back to a Japanese sen
try, who came hack with him and
knocked Drew down with the butt of
his rifle. The local guard was turn
ed out and Drew was severely beaten
and stabbed several times with a bay
onet. He was carried to his car. Hev
era I Japanese entered, on* Informing
Drew that he was a doctor. He said
he was sorry for what had happened,
and when he had finished dressing
Drew's wound* the doctor wanted to
shake hands.
Drew stated that Inasmuch as he
had been struck from behind, beaten
by many and struck when down and
helpless, that he did not care to
shake hands The Japanese doctor
then struck Drew In the face and
retreated behind the other Japanese.
The Japanese official Investigation
asserted that Drew was drunk, that
ho had assaulted a sentry. Testi
mony of four Russian officers who
had witnessed the Incident bore out
Drew's statement and likewise tes
tified that Drew was sober.
There waa another Incident In
which nn American (soldier guarding
