"What shall ye do to help Russia?"
.vas still the leading question for the
governments of the allied nations last
Veek. Developments, though they
were in the main favorable to the al
lied cause, had not greatly clarified the
situation. It. seems apparent that Ger
many, too, is in doubt as -to what
course to pursue In the near East. Her
policy of terrorism and grab-all has
not been working out well and has
caused bitter complaint even in the
The people of the Murman coast,
'between Finland and the White sea,
where there are large allied military
-stores under guard of British and
: American forces, have created the
White sea republic, and in the rest
of Arctic Russia, from the White sea
; to Siberia, the republic of Wologda
czhe has been established. Both of
i these new states are anti-German and
; pro-ally and their people promise to
;form active forces against the Teu
tons If given aid. In western Siberia
the bolsheviki have been defeated
again and are reported to have evac
uated Irkutsk, and a provisional gov
ernment for Siberia has been set Dp
in Xovonicolacvsk. This government
has laid out a program that includes
the liberation of Siberia from the bol
sheviki; the avoidance, if possible, of
foreign intervention; universal suf
frage, distribution of the land among
the landless and other economic re
forms. It intends to summon a con
stituent assembly and to restore law
and order. All this is being done un
der the protection of the2 army of
Czecho-Slovaks that has continued its
victorious campaign against the bol
sheviki and the German and Austrian
war prisoners who are aiding them.
Thus there appears to be forming
the established authority that has
been considered requisite for the ex
tending of aid to the Russians, at least
in Siberia. But President Wilson
would not consent to the dispatch of
ian armed force that would mean the
weakening of the western front in Eu
irope, and doubtless the other allied
leaders agreed with him. Further
'more, Mr. Wilson especially is averse
to departing from the policy of nan
1 interference in the internal affairs of
ia friendly nation. This does not mean
that the allies will abandon the plan
;to send to. Siberia supplies from Amer
ica and a commission to extend help
iof an industrial and economic nature.
(Moreover, the Czecho-Slovaks there
.are doing so valuable a work that the
: entente powers intend to give them
;such moral and material support as
;they may need, provided they stand
by their pledge to refrain from assum
ing permanent control over the coun
try through which they are passing.
If a military force is sent into Si
beria it probably will be largely made
up of Japanese and Chinese.
Through German sources comes the
-assertion that the soviet government
of Russia has declared it will ally
itself with Germany if an Anglo-Japanese
expedition intervenes in Siberia.
.20 doubt Lenine would commit him
self to such a course, but It is a ques
tion whether he would be sustained
by .any great numbers of Russians.
Germany's penetration of western
Eussia and Finland has been accom
panied by such brutalities that the
minority socialists in the reiqhitag
have been attacking the government's
policy strongly. Their leader, Hugo
Haase. asserts that since the Germans

When the news came of tbe assas
sination of Count von Mirbach, Ger
man ambassador to Russia, In Mos
cow, at the instigation of a group of
social revolutionists, there were
many predictions that the kaiser
would get revenge by sending a great
army to occupy tbe chief Russian
cities, and indeed It was semi-offlcial-ly
stated in Berlin that such w-ould be
his course. But after breaking off
diplomatic relations the chief Hun ap
parently thought better of it and a
mild statement was issued hoping
"that the Russian government and peo
ple will succeed In nipping the pres
ent revolutionary agitation in the
'bud." It is noteasy to see how Ger

T&e panQrman party triumphed
over iJts opponents and forced the
resignation of Foreign Minister von
KoeKlmann 'because of his "peace im

Uie trickiest and most disreputable of
Teuton diplomats, as his successor.
Great excitement in the reichstag re

he passed without their aid, until the
mew minister had announced his pol
icies. Von Hintze Is a swashbuckling
militarist and the creature of Admiral
von Tlrpitz. As minister to China he
disgraced himself, and as minister to
Mexico he deliberately stirred up a
row between Huerta and Carranxa la
order to embroil the United States.
The French press accepts the selec
tion of Von Hintze as evidence that
the militarists in Germany are strong
er than the diplomats and are deter
mined upon a war to the finish. They
believe he will do the pan-Germans
much more harm than good.
Military operations of prime Impor
tance last week were confined tt Al
bania, a field of which little has been
heard for a long time. There the
Italians and French got very busy and,
with the aid of British naval farces
In theAdriatic, started an offensive
that met with considerable success
and is still progressing as this is "writ
ten. Within a few days the allied
forces had advanced more than twenty-five
miles on a battle front sixty
J miles long, had captured Fieri, an im-

Adriatic, and had practically sur
rounded Berat, the chief city of south
ern Albania. They also had occupied
mountain positions of great strategic
value. Before the week closed the
Austrians had evacuated Berat.
This Albanian offensive was counted
on to have great political effect, es
pecially in Austria-Hungary and
among the small nations of the Bal
kans. Already it had caused evident
uneasiness among the forces of the
central powers that face the allies
from the Adriatic to Saloniki. In
Macedonia they made several costly
and vain attacks on the allies. The
apparent objective of the allies in Al
bania is the Shkumbl valley , and the
old Roman road, the Via Egnatia,
leading to the Vardar valley and open
ing the way to a movement toward the
east that would outflank the enemy
north of Monastir.
If the Austrians are decisively de
feated in this region the kaiser may
force them to accept Von Below as
their generalissimo, despite their pro
tests. The : efforts to Germanize the
Austrian general headquarters have
stirred Tip tne already angry people
of the dual kingdom. Another row
there has been caused by more or less
open assertions that Empress Zita
ruined the offensive on Italy by pre
venting the -use of gas and otherwise
hampering the commanders. ' A big

time but has now returned to Wash

t There were no major .qpecattofls on
the Italian front last week, but the
Italians' unceasingly harassed the
enemy by raids and sorties and In .t;he
mountain region improved . their awb
positions considerably. The American
aviators on that front kept upbeir
excellent work. ,
On the western front there -was an
ominous silence on the part of the
Huns. The usual- 40 days needed by
them to organize a new drive bad
nearly expired, but still they did not
start. However, abnormalactlvlty was
observed behind their lines, especially
in the regions where the . Americans
are stationed. On Teusday the French
undertook the first considerable in
fantry operation in many days and,
with the aid of tanks, advanced more
than a mile on a front of two and a
half miles northwest of Complegne.
Prisoners and gun? were captured and
positions occupied that serve to pro
tect the important railway junction at
Estrees-St. Denis. General Petain also
took important ground east of the
Retz forest on the Marne front. There
-were many raids by all the allied (
forces during the week, and some ar-
tillery activity beyond the ordinary to 1
the British sectors.
Such splendid work is being Acme by
the air forces of the allies on th west
front that military observers now at

There have been many stories of
the declining morale of the German

foolish to grow optimistic over these

must be based on our growing strength

voting in favor of the prohibition

versing the ruling of the chair, that
the amendment Is general legislation

their defeat since the move for war
prohibition originated in the lower
house, and relied on the president to
veto the -bill on the ground that the
workers in vital war industries should
not be deprived of alcoholic leverages.
