THREATENED BY INTERNAL STRIFE London, May 21.. ( Correspond encu of The Associated Press) The Bol shevik government of Ru,ssia is re ported to be beset by grave internal troubles, especially in North Russia. Definite evidence of disaffection among workmen In that district has been exhibited recently by hostile demonstrations against Jhe Soviet au thorities, by strikes anf sabotage. The Bolshevik financial position is rapidly growing worse. Reports sub mitted by Krestlnskt, commissary for finance, for the second half of 1918. show a deficit owlns to the fact that the "single tax on the possessing classes," which was estimated to yield 10,000.000,000 rubles, yielded only '4 50.000,000 as the townspeople of the "possessing class" were financially ex haunted and the peasants offered armed resistance to forced payment. A large wing of the Menshevlk, or moderate party has refused to adhere to the BoUthoyik and adopted the fol lowing program: Opposition to Bolshevlkirule, which Is declared to have "resulted In chaos and the destruction of national life In Russia." Revival of capitalism on demo cratic lines as being the only means of restoring Russian Industry and commerce wfth'the outside world. The convening of a constituent as sembly, to be elected by general fran chise. Restoration of the old frontiers ol Russia, exclusive of Finland and Po land, with a grant of local political autonomy and a federative tie uniting such territories as desire Inde pendence. State control of Industry, as op posed to workmen's control. EUROPEAN TRAIN SERVICE BETTER Paris, May 21. (Correspondence of The Associated Press) What Is characterized as one of the most vital steps towards the speedy reconstruc tion of warworn Kurope is being taken this week In the inauguration of the through, transcontinental train service between Paris, Belgrade and Bucharest via Pontarlier, Milan, Triest, Agram and Vinkovce. This line would under any ordinary circum stances be a great boom to the trav eler and to the business man. but now, on the eve ,of the signing of peace, it assumes an inoalcuable Im portance to the welfare of many countries. The Allied capitals will now be linked up once more by a rapid ser vice which will permit of easy com munications. The slow sea route can be abandoned for the numerous gov ernmental missions which will play a great part in the reconstruction. In numerous other ways the new Ike will facilitate the process of rebuild ing the fortunes of the Allies. That this railway avoids Germany and undoubtedly will take away much of the trade of the German railways finds no adverse crlliclsm in Paris. The French are qCnte con tent to see the railways of their late enemies lie dormant for a time. Whether the new Allied line will ul timately become the great trade ar tery for the continent, replacing the German lines between the North Sea ports and . the East, is a matter of much discussion. There are argu ments on both sides of the question. Certainly Its immediate effect Is ex pected to be to lessen the German prospects. Whether there is any sentiment tn trade, whloh will fluence future developments, remains to be seen. The new service will provide through trains de luxe between Paris and Belgrade three times each week. according to present plans. One train a week will go through to Bucha rest. Thus with a good train service Between Parle and the English Chan nel ports, England will again be brought into close touch with her eastern Allies. As soon as possible the line will be extended to Constantinople and to Athens, but the running of trains to these places now is Impossible owing to the destruction of railways during the war. It will take several months to repair the damage. In ad dition, rolling stock Is very scarce. Even now it is necessary to make a wide detour to get to Bucharest from Belgrade. While the transcontinental train service will be Important for relief wor.lt and for traders who wish to visit the - East to re-establish com mercial relations, it is believed that the steamship traffic will not be ma terially affected by the Innovation. Goods will still continue to pass through the Mediterranean as of old. JXHUTj WORKERS GIVE PAGEANT. Industry Peraonioexl at Southern Tex tile Exposition.

May 21 (By mail) Standing amid the glories of the royal past of France, In the park at Versailles, an American doughboy burst into this apostrophe: "Say, pal, where'd you get eats around these diggln'e?" American fighting men in leave parties led by trained guides from the Paris headquarters of the Young Men's Christian Association War Council may be seen everywhere in Paris and its environs, enjoying the monuments of the old regime and .of the Empire In a truly American fashion, which doee not prevent the association of the great palace of Louis XIV and "chow." "ixoks like a decayed church," was the deliberate estimate of an other boy in khaki as he stood be fore the Hotel des Invalides. Then he went Inside and become enthus iastic over the marble railing about the tomb of Napoleon because it Was so "white" and hadn't a flaw. One of them emerged from the Invalides and grew almost poetic about the yellow light coming through the Blaes windows above Napoleon's casket. Then he caught himself, and almost blushed. In the next breath he called the Court: des Invalides the "souvenir parlor of the armies of France." When he saw Guynemer's airplane and learned what it was, he main tained a reverential silence of more than a minute before he began to de termine Its "make." Perhaps the reactions from Ver sailles are the most illuminating. Halting at the Fountain of Nep tune, a doughboy cast his eye ap pralslngly down the vista of the park. "Gee." he eald, "there must be two miles of fountains." Best of all, apparently, the sol diers like to. go and sit on the banks of the Seine watching the river traffic. The one-fourth size Statue of Lib erty presented to Paris by the Ameri can colonies watches over them, here. But even it Is the subject of frank criticism. "Huh," said "It don't look girl will when York harbor." one of the critics, as good as the old we steam Into Ntw WILD AFRICANS TO APPEAR AT MIDNIGHT SHOW Merwin's . tMld-vMCrtean TAffin- proofs," real wild men from the heart of the dark continent, will "be one of the big akMed attractions at the Scribe's Midnight Gambol to be held at Poll's theater, Friday.

For many years the twenty-first of May was "celebrated as a holiday by the pioneers of what is now Elgin County, Ont., Canada, the date com memorating the founding of the set tlement at Port Talbot on Lake Erie in 1803. Col. Thomas Talbot, who had , been a soldier in Canada and Europe and private secretary to Major-General J. Graves Simcoe, first Lieutenant-Governor Invaded the wilderness at Port Talbot. lie chopped down a tree as the formal Inaugural ceremony, and after which the men accompanied him fell to work with a vim to make a clearing and construct log houses. Talbot had obtained a large grant of land In that section from the government, and, after see ing the settlement fairly started, he returned to civilization to induct fur ther immigration. For over a quarter of a century he labored to carry out his coloniza tion schemes, and Induced no less than 40,000 people to settle in the wild places of Upper Canada. These pioneers, who played so large a part In the development of the prosperous Province of the present, lived hard but happy and contented lives. They fought and conquered all the wild forces of nature. Their b,omes were log cabins, mostly of one room with one window. They wore rude clothing made of the skins of animals or of ocarse cloth spun by the women from hemp or flax. "Furniture was made from trees and hewed out with axes. Often they were forced to subsist for months on a diet of Indian corn, wild rice, the flesh of wild animals, fish, roots and nuts. In spite of these hard ships ipossibly to some extent because of thera the settlement flourished, and privation was gradually dis placed by comfort and even some 'de gree of luxury.
