j AMAZED AT AMERICA’S SPEED
[And at Magnitude of Fis War Prepara
tions, Says Stephan Pielion.
Paris, May 11.—“France is set like
[steel in her just war. And with the
tremendous assistance of America, be
coming hourly more potent, we awgjit
the renewed assaults of the Germans
[ with the utmost confidence.”
j This was the statement of Stephen
Pichgn, French minister of foreign at- j
Taira, today.
Suave, naturally mild of manner. I
the French statesman warmed into j
fierce enthusiasm :s he tajkei' of his j
country's efforts and lauded the aid
of her latest ally.
"The spirit of the Americans al
ready on the battle line,” said he
' ha.s convinced the Germans before
them of their determination as fight
ers. Every American may feel proud |
of what they h ,ve done and when !
’ |
the giant strength of your republic i
is fully exerted we know that there j
will be no doubt as to the result.
I We French know that the United
States entered this war for principles
which cannot be compromised, and we
can assure you that, bo the struggle
long or short, France on the day of
the completed, final victory will be
found presenting a solid front to the
foe.
"We are all amazed at the remark
able speed with which the United
States has exerted its power. I have
been astonished at the magnitude of
the bases laid by the United States
army for future activities, and when
the men for whom these plans were
laid are upon the battle front, the
day of triumph for America, France,
Britain and our allies will be at hand.

SMARTS UNDER PRUSSIAN YOKE
London, M.:y 11.—Russia has ! ecu
suddenly faced with events that any
again change the political outlook, the
r etrograd correspondent of the Daily
Express telegraphs. Germany, he says,
has apparently found that economic
dominion over Russian territory, is
insufficient ajn'd is seeking military oc
cupation.
An extra session of the Bolshevik
government council has been held in
Petrograd to discuss the situation
created by the ultimatum recently de
livered by the German ambassador,
Count von Mirbach, which embodied
demands of a character apparently
calculated to turn Russia virtually into
a German colony. Premier Lenine's
speech at this meeting was extremely
pessimistic, the correspondent re
ports.
According to the newspaper, Podnia,
the question of transferring the capi
tal to Nijni-Novgorod was broached,
as was the subject of. immediate
military measures for the defense of
Moscow against possible aerial at
tacks.
Germans Send Troops.
The situation in the Ukraine has be
come so disturbing that the Germans
have dispatched large detachments
of Bavarian cavalry from Flawders
on the way to Ukraine, the corre
spondent at Amsterdam of the Ex
change Telegraph company reports.
Word that fighting is being resum
ed in Ukraine, has been received In
Liege, Belgium, according to the dis
patch.
German cavalry is passing through
Liege, enroute to Ukraine, accord
ing to reports reaching Amsterdam
today from the frontier. The impres
sion is created that the war may l»e
resumed in the east.
