THREE FRENCH SUPPORT WAS ALU THAT. SAVED POLAND Posen. Polaafl, Oct. 6. An official ! Poland ha told the Assosciated Press I of the French Military MIsslo In j correspondent that the Polish army would have been conquered .by the Bolshevik armies of Russia if the French had not supported the Poles.. This notwithstanding the fact that the Poles beat back the Russian drive I on Warsaw. The French official based hte state ffnent upon his belief that the Rus- arm yas an effective fighting machine ' with the exception of tne uerman- trained troops of Posen. The French- ' man maiA ho hnllnvorl tha Russian organization has been, and still is, I underestimated and because of this pendency to belittle the Russian ar mies the menace to Poland's exist ience. If not to all Western Europe, I remains Imminent and real. The official said some Russian units were poorly equipped But it ''was not true the army was "a bare foot rabble", He was convin""l the I majority of the Russian divisions were "well-organized units of good i fighting men, much better officered ithan the Poles." The Poles had 25, iOOO officers but only 6,000 of them ever went to the front although they 'were sorely needed there, he said. (There was evidence that certain Po ilish companies had fought without i officers, he asserted, and that during the retreat these were without com- inlanders. An American artillery officer who hRii snent a. va.r in Russia and had 'been under fire at the Polish front i told the correspondent, he had seen the Poles "plant their artillery in the most ridiculous places, on the exposed sides of hills and right in the open, when they could have readily ! concealed it and made it effective."' A neutral aviator who hau flwn lover th0 front several times when I "battles" were said to be in progress I said what he saw of the fighting, was i "two armies keeping about three ; hours apart, the Poles retreating when the Russian advanced, and the Russians running when the Poles 'turned and advanced." He said this ! "schedule sometimes got disarranged land there was a collision between opposing detachments," but he Bad 'not witnessed any of these clashes. A number of Polish officers with jwhom (the correspondent talked said I they were forced to admit the French 'saved the day but the weakness -of ! their officers was explained by the ; f act that in former years Poles had i not been permitted to hold commis- sions In the army, either in Russian, j German or Austrian Poland, and that the time had been too short to devel lop a staff of highly trained officers. ARMENIANS ARE GRATEFUL FOR AMERICAN AID United States Saved Coun try From Starvation ' Last Year. MUCH INTEREST OVER MEXICO'S NEW TARIFF J (By Ijonis P. Kirby, ' International 1 News Service Staff Correspondent.) Mexico City, Mexico, Oct. 6 There is great interest in Mexico's proposed new tariff, but little can be learned 'about it. Several commissions have been appointed to assist the Congres sional committees and Government 'officers in the preparation of the tariff bill, but members of these commis- sons say that they do not know what will be done. They are merely ad visory, they say. When they submit their reports, their suggestions may not be adopted. ' It Is known however, that the Mexican Government proposed to I pass a high tariff bill in the hope of I developing Industries in Mexico. Business men say, however, that I the burdens placed upon industry by the new constitution will make It I difficult, no matter how high the i tariff is placed, to bring factories to j Mexico. "America saved Armenia from star vation last year!" "At least half a milion .are living today who would have perished had it not been for American philan thropy. Dr. Ohandjanian vthe Pre mier and President of tne Armenian Republic, Governors, Mayors and all in authority unite in their expressions of deep appreciation of what America has done for Armenia." - Charles V. Vickrey,. secretary of the Near East Relief of New York city, who returned from a tour of inspec tion of the Near East from Constan tinople to Transcaucasia on the Miu retania, issued this statement respect ing the accomplishments of American relief work in Armenia and Syria. "But Armenia is not a beggar na tion',' Mr. Vickery went on. "Wholly aside from the million Armenians who perished in cold-blooded massa cres and deportations, the Armenians in proportion to their . population probably lost more men in open battle than any other of the Allies. "Throughout the war they success fully engaged large forces of the enemy- on the Eastern Turkish front thereby thwarting Germany's Pan Turanian program and materially as sisting Allenby in his strategic ad vance from the south into Palestine and Syria. I" But since the armistice Eurone has practically deserted her Asiatic Allies. Two years after the Armis tice and hundreds of thousands of Armenians are still refugees and exiles, having been driven from their homes by the Turk at the outbreak of the war. The peace treaty with the Turk is not yet effective. The Armenians are still compelled to fight ingle-ussded against their enemies on four sides. "Industrially the Armenians are the most thrifty and progressive people oi tne .Near East. This year even under almost lnsumounta'hle handicaps in exile without ade quate implements, oxen or seed, they have contrived to raise enough food to last for eight months, but must have enough aid to tide over the other four months and to care for the hundred thousand or more or phans that have been left by the ravages or war, massacre and depor tation. "If the allies will but co-operate in protecting Armenia irom armed at tack; from four sides she can and- will quickly regain full self-support and become one of the most, if not the most, enterprising and prosperous FINDS JAPANESE PLAN TO GRAB CHINA RAILROAD .feKing, uct. 5. ne Japanese De tray an ambition to monopolize the operation of the Chinese Eastern Railway, in the' opinion of a com mission consisting of an American, a J Frenchman and an Englishman which i was sent by the Chinese government i to Manchuria and Eastern Siberia this ! summer to inquire into political con-1 ditions there particularly as they af fected, the railway. The commission was composed " of Dr. J. C. Ferguson, American advisor to the President of China M. Padoux, French financial advisor to the Chi nese government; and E. Lenox-Simpson, P.ritish whose official tle is sta tistician to the President. They left Peking June 16 and in spected the whole line of the Chinese Eastern and later continued their in vestigations in Vladivostok. In a re port to the Chinese government the commission states: "The Japanese attitude toward the Chinese Eastern railway today is cor rect in outward appearances; never theless beneath the surface are to be seen numerous indications - of their desire to dominate, if not to control its administration. "They overlook- no opportunity to interef ere with the working of the line; they constantly watch the move ment of traffic, and they have made every possible attempt to install them selves in a commanding position both along the railway and in buildings be longing to the company. Last year they made a deliberate attempt to seize the section south of Harbin Changchun-Harbin) by moving up to Harbin all material necessary to convert the line from Russian broad gauge to standard gauge (South Man churian system), an effort which was successfully resisted by the agents of the Allied powers. Since then they have attempted to cover this failure by offering to lease from the Chinese Eastern for a term of years all the freight space on the diangchun Harbin section and thus to establish an effective Japanese monopoly, an effort which also has come tonaught" Under the head of criticisms of Chinese policing, the commission re ported that "country districts, par ticularly the Sungari valley and the sections of the railway in the moun tainous districts of eastern Kirin, are full of bands of hunghutze (Chinese bandits) preying upon the country and frequently plundering steamers and junks. taiaDorate emDroiaery errects are being used on the dresses for the com ing season.
