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.

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.

(When he came no crowd as in days of
old
! Sought bestowal of favors, and it must
be told
. No one disturbed his pietee
I And he spent the day with his familee.
Alone.
j He learned from friends that he met
' in town
iThat Frank E. Ballard had usurped
his crown
I And with John H. Leonard now owned
the town
Politicallee.
jfio King, John T.. went back
I And h didn't even take a crack
iAt the new crowned Kings
Who had done some thing3
-To the old machineree.
(But Ballard, the King, and Leonard,
- the King. '
Straightway went forth and did bring
I To this town the party candidates
' To show the populace what they would
-' have to face
I If they failed to bow and likewise
! kow-tow
'To the Kings that did King displace.
I For thus Lake spoke, he's Governor

: "You may say to them that they all
may know
; That he who fails to come across and
