Saturday. Jumping from his seat in the court at the resumption of the Moscow trial of the British engineers today Alan. Monkhouse the senior representative of metropolitan Vickers ltd., shouted this trial is a Frame Upit was a dramatic opening to the fourth Day of the sensational trial in which the six British engineers As Well As 12 russians Are on trial for their lives on charges of Sabo Tage espionage and bribery. Monkhouse s outburst voiced the thoughts of every briton in court. Another stir was caused when it was said that or. C. T. Richards the London manager of Vickers business in Russia was a British intelligence service officer in 1918. Monkhouse stood up saying he wanted to make a declaration. The judge stopped him. And he sat Down again. He protested that he had been Cross examined in gaol for 18 hours. He said the trial was based on the evidence of terrorised russians. Then there came the outburst. Mademoiselle Kut Usova the Secretary of the Vickers company in Moscow and reported to be a close Friend of Thornton said that the manager Alan Monkhouse. And Thornton had not hesitated to Dis cuss in her presence their plans for wrecking machines. Thornton then admitted that or. Richards the London manager was also interested in information. The six englishmen charged Are Alan Monkhouse Charles Thornton William Macdonald John Cushny Charles void Wall and a. W. Gregory. Maedonald the Only one of the six who was refuse bail while awaiting trial pleaded guilty. Work by defence the procedure of the court is curiously confusing and informal. The prisoners Are allowed to Cross examine a Foch other and several of the accused May be interrogated simultaneously. The counsel for the defence took scarcely any part in the proceedings. They were occupied by taking voluminous notes with the exception of m. Komo Dov and m. Braude who elicited information Iron witnesses Mukh was. Favourable to a Lori Ijara. Ana . Today s session opened with the evidence of m. Dolgov. Controller of the electrical inspection department which was the first evidence taken in the Case either documentary or otherwise from anyone other than those who Are accused. Led by the prosecutor m. Vishinsky Dolgov described in a confident manner the circumstances in which he alleged a bribe was Given by Thornton. The prosecutor summed up by saying Dolgov confirms everything Thoraton denies everything alleged bribes the evidence of another of the russian accused who had pleaded guilty. Kot Liane Veky. Was then called. He described his acquaintance with Macdonald at Zueva and alleged that he had received various sums of Money from Macdonald in return for providing him with building plans and for under taking wrecking work which he claimed he did on in Acdonald s instructions. Lobanov one of the accused russians was next called. Like All other russian accused who had pleaded guilty he described his anti soviet views As being taken advantage of by one of the Vickers men. In this Case he said it was Nordwall with whom he worked at Ingres. He described wreck ing at the works which he alleged he had undertaken on Nordwall s instructions and for which he said he had received 5,000 roubles from Nordwall As Well As a fur coat. Nordwall completely denied everything that Lobanov had said claiming that he had tried to discourage Lobanov s anti soviet views. In the evening session Kitayev another russian gave evidence that he had been invited to assist in sabotage work. He said Nordwall told me that in the event of War it would be necessary to destroy the whole Ivanovo Power Plant. Nordwall denied this Allega Tion. Siebert. An aged russian talked so freely that judge Ulreh frequently silenced him. He gave evidence that he began sabotaging because he believed All Thornton said. Siebert said that Gregory started anti soviet propaganda immediately he arrived at Niep Rostrow. Is this Justice. Gregory speaking with a Strong Welsh accent had a Sharp altercation with judge Ulreh saying that Siebert had insulted him. And was ruining his reputation yet the court accepted Hie evidence without question. Is this Justice he asked. Judge Dulrich retorted keep to fact Gregory said he went to Niep Rostrow to install Oil switches. He did this work carefully to maintain Vickers reputation.

Macdonald s withdrawal of his plea of guilty and his subsequent recantation after he had been again in the hands of the Opu is Arous ing angrier comment than any incident of the trial. The daily Telegraph says it proves that Macdonald s admissions were obtained because of his moral collapse through terror and exhaustion.

Ton assistant manager of the metropolitan Vickers electrical co s staff in Moscow who is one of the. Six englishmen charged. L assistant manager electrical staff. This so called trial is a stench in the nostrils of the civilised world and Shat ters the illusion of those who would be Lieve that there was a seed of social Good in the bolshevik revolution the morning Post says it k not necessary to wait until the end of the trial before denouncing the court As a Sham tribunal conducted As a Savage farce. The spasms of varying testimony wrung from Macdonald prove that the Opu is applying strange and vicious pressure. The Honor and perhaps lives of six englishmen Are being devilishly Sivorn away it says.
