What tomorrow i i May day may bring forth throughout I the central empire was interesting all! Eurora today, belligerent and neutral alike. j Austrian socialists and trades unions ,have definitely determined to institute a J4 nour general strike, iserun - ais I patches announcing this decision hint led at considerable apprehension that j German workmen would follow this ex j ample. They detailed widespread ef 'forts by labor unions and socialist lead ers to avert any tie up. in Germany. Just how far the general strike agi tation has gone in the kaiser's empire and how many workmen will join in the demonstration tomorrow has been successfully concealed bv the German censorship. What details have come, out of Germany are contradictory. Dispatch es from Holland asserted that German socialists were working onanist the strike and quoted Count VonKevent low, hi the Kerlin Tages Zeitung, as de nying that the socialists were aiding in suppressing the strike scheme. As against this, other Berlin information asserted that the socialist organ Vor- waerts today warned its readers in flaring type not to join any movement which would curtail the output of mu nitions. "May 1 ninv be a fateful day for democracy in Germany." declared the newspaper Germania, conservative I'ath olic organ. Most interest here centered on what may happen in Austria-Hungary. For weeks past ever since news of the Rus sian revolution reached Emperor Carl's people there have been persistent ru mors of peace moves from the dual monarchy and it is known the nation is suffering greatly fromick of food and general weariness with war. j The general strike in the central em- ynres is primarily to voice protest 01 itho people against insufficient food. According to bcsfc available informn- toion. the strike leaders count only upon a tic up of all industries for twen ty four hours simply as showing the pcoplo aud the government the strength of the workmen and the necessity ior listening to their complaints.

Mi BRICK S-H fa O-E mm OUR OEAWrORD SHOES STILL LEAD IN QUALITY AT LOWEST PRICES BUY AT Russians Realize They Must Fight for Liberty If They Would Retain It By William G. Sheppard. (Hatted Press ttaff correspondent ) Petrograd. April 30. From the czar's winter place, until recently the seat of the most autocratic of all modern got eminent, a high sign today proclaimed the rising tide of world democracy. Oa the eve of May da-, Minister of War Gutchkoff issued an order striking the last bonds from the army of the new 'Russia. It is with this new spirit of freedom that Eussia will celebrate tomorrow. The keynoic of the day is struck by the sign stretching across the front of the palace, fashioned by the hand of workmen now knowing the meaning of liberty. It reads: t "The proletariat of all ' countries unite." The orders issued bv Minister Gutch koff today vere put forth at the sug gestion of the private soldiers them selves. They provido: Hereafter all soldiers are to lie con sidered citizens of Russia. (Under autocracy's rulethey were not even supposed to be units of the na tion they were supposed to die for.) Complete religious freedom. Free speech guaranteed. Attendance at church services not compulsory. Mail fibni trenches shall not be censored. All mail including Damnhlets shall be delivered to soldiers at the front The servile "sir" abolished in re plies by private soldiers to officers. Hereafter privates shall say merely "ves" or "no" without the "sir" in answering officers. Also, soldiers here after need not salute their officers "un less the; soldier wishes." Privates, howerer, must come to "attention" "when commanded to do so. Corporal punishment in the army completely abolished. Celebrate Tomorrow. It is in this spirit of complete free dom that "free Russia" will celebrate May day tomorro. ' Under czardom, a few brave spirits used to meet in remote forests in May ' irst and in constant dread of secret police, would go through the forms of a parade under the red flag of liberalism". Today, the government itself joins. The Russian calendar is more than two weeks behind that in use every where alse on the globe. But in order that new Russia's idea of a world broth erhood, a "proletariat of 11 countries" it was decided to advance "May day in Kussia to coincide with the rest of the world- A parade, such as Russia never saw before will be the principal feature of the celebration in the capital. But while Russia is celebrating her freedom her people, jubilant at the throwing off of their shackles, are not forgetting that Russia's liberty must be fought tor. ."Soldiers who visited their homes from j the front immediately after the rcvolu- tion are returning to fight by the thou sands. All over Russia women of the villages are shaming them into return ing to their duty, demanding they fight and hold new Russia in her proud new place in the world's democracies. Ttte Ken nag. Strange stories are told by Russian soldiers back from the front of how the enemV received the news of Russia's overthrow of autocracy. One soldier told me today of the "strangest sight he ever saw." "We have discovered now that the Germans on our 'front don't like to at tack us," he said. "Under a red flag last Monday German officers climbed out of their trenches. The German sol diers followed. We didn't fire. But we likewise hoisted our rod flag. When the Germans saw we were deliberately withholding our fire from their ranks, under the same red flag as our own forces, the soldiers themselves stopped still and turned back to their own trenches. They abandoned their officers. the officers stood ttiere in jmo ivian s land alone, urging them to attack, but without avail. Finally they went back disgusted. Not a shot had been fired, not a German soldier harmed in that death territory. "However, we mistrust red flags borne by Germans and Austrians. Now we fire with all strength on such ap proaching of the enemy forces. "We have proved our right to the red fiagnow let the Germans and the Aus trians prove their right to it."
