As a Prophet president Gompers reputation should at this moment touch the Zenith. He told the first Industrial conference in passionate tones 14 months ago that employers must either concede Ami help establish the rights granted labor during the War. Or else witness the Triumph of what he termed a a bolshevism within the american Lahore movement. In the language of or. Gompers.

The International Hodge podge with the Mae of the people in confusion Ami great private interests in control will continue for the immediate future As in the past Ami this was inevitable without regard to the results of the recent election. There is nothing that or. Of could have done for the International hankers and profiteers which or. Harding will not in Able to undertake Ami be really to undertake Ami in doing so will not need to violate any pledges made or to abandon any positions taken by him in his front porch utterances.

Wrangel Al the South St. Paul Stock Yards these Days Are a place to study the effects of the return to private operation of railroads. Cattle from All Over the Northwest forced on the Market by the squeezing of Bank credit have been dumped into South St. Paul to save cars which should haul them to Chicago. Over 30 000 head of cattle Are now being fed there with the Farmer paying stockyard prices for feedstuff.-, waiting for the local Slaughter House to use them or for the Light possibility of cars to carry them to Chicago. T he local Slaughter facilities can not handle the thou Amis of head of cattle consigned to Chicago and arbitrarily unloaded at South St. Paul buyers of Stocker an feeder Are kept away from the Market by the credit situation. Ami consequently this artificial condition a forced Down livestock pric at South St. Paul. Potatoes throughout the Northwest Are being destroyed by Frost from Lack of Iran port at Ion. As never before in our history and Many Northwest town and cities Are practically without Coal with Winter coming on. While the government management of the railroads during the War May have been interfered with con Ider to ably by the rain mad financiers and other wire pulling it presented no such inefficiency a we a Joe at the present time and there Are no striking Railroad men now to be used As scapegoats for the situation. People who have never been anywhere near a Battlefield probably can not realize what the common people of Southern Russia have been suffering in the last few months during the kind of warfare which has been carried on there.

The a open shop War will Gutterieze labor charged in any and All non Union shops to Gompers guidance of labor requites the co operation of the big employers. T Hose employers have refused to cooperate. The workers turn instinctively toward a program which does not require the co upe Ratton of employ Era which must be away from Gompers.

But the fruit of their labors they attribute to a conspiracy of the third internationale at Moscow leaders seek solution when a corporation disrupts a Craft Union and turn half its members into the Street it is merely asserting its americanism the press argues. When the dispossessed workers turn for Relief to the Solidarity of Industrial unionism they prove they Are being paid or to lured by the russian conspirators. While the a ire tragedy proceeds. President Gompers and his associates remain silent anti inactive trying to decide How to meet a situation which has been Cen approaching with relentless certainty for everal years. Unemployment conquers a fresh City every Day. Judge Gary has consolidated his hold upon the instrument White Russia Ami ukrainian Are not regarded As serious obstacles. Military men say these forces can be disposed of in a very Short time. We ii Prospect of Complete cessation of hostilities All departments of the soviet government Are disc using reconstruction. The storming of the defense of Northern Crimea by the soviet army was one of the most dramatic Battles of Modem times. Russian military men a it compares with the Battle of Verdun. The powerful defensive works which were it believed by Wrangell engineers to be impregnable first were breached with artillery then the troops poured through Leon Trotzky minister of War in the soviet government personally directed tile final phase of the attack. A soon As the Kusso polish armistice a signed Trosky left for the crimean War theater and organized the Advance t he concentration of soviet troops was completed in october Ami the Battle opened oct. 14, North of per Kop the town at the Battle neck where Crimea joins the russian main laps done to plan War says Nagai immediate conflict held unlikely immigration fears belittled of government.

Pope Benedict to ask Prince of Monaco to close up Monte Carlo Rome a Pope Benedict Xiv is preparing to ask the Prince of Monaco to close up Monte Carlo the greatest gambling resort the world known. That the pontiff plans this step in a great crusade against immorality throughout the whole world became known today. Diplomatic relation have been re awed Between the Vatican and the principality of Monaco after an interruption of eight Yea s. Of. Defon Tarcic has arrived Here with his credentials to represent the Prince of Monaco at the holy sea. Vatican circles regard the resumption of diplomatic relations with the principality of Monaco a a development of great importance despite the fact the principality consists of Only eight Square Milts of territory containing the Casino some luxurious hotel a Park Ami the Princess Palace. Victory was won North of per Kop at enormous Cost. Trotzky sent his Best soldiers and they justified his expectation. It is apparent the demoralization of Wrangell a soldiers had been under Way some time before the collapse. Twenty four hours after the fall of Simferopol and Sabas to pol local soviet governments were administering All Public affairs they were established a month previously but Hail to has Ever conduct their affairs underground the first Telegram from the crimean soviet was received by the Moscow government tuesday night. At that time it a not known definitely that Wrangel had escaped to Turkey on a ship and the message aroused Hope Here that Wrangel might be a prisoner soviet Soldier captured an order of the Day signed by Wrangel saying that As the allies were giving him no further military assistance he extended permission to All his soldiers to surrender themselves to the soviet troops.

Nagai acting charge it i affaires of the japanese embassy in the absence of the japanese ambassador who a attending the league of nations meeting at Geneva. Or.

A a i he economic situation in Japan at this time is such As prohibits such expenditures. We Are building warships of course but this is merely in line with the regular course of preparation. We do n get intend to lie left in a Hole if War should come. I see no reason to think that there will be a or. Nagai said there was no reason for either Australia or Canada to oppose renewal of the Anglo japanese treaty. No immigration Likely a it is not a combination for offence or defense a explained or. Nagai. A it merely Call for compulsory arbitration should any move be made by Japan upon another nation. Australia and Canada apparently fear great immigration but this fear is groundless Japan needs All her Man it Home. We would nut Grant permission to workmen to leave the country unless they see a big material advantage in or. Nagai was formerly in the japanese consular service at to Angel and san Francisco. Range and others with him who seize the Power naturally Dill not have enough mean to adequately support i army and this made it necessary for him to allow the army to live on territory both frenily an hostile. Anil living on the territory in proc ital application mean seizing and destroying practically everything that comes in sight. Now comes the soviet a n army hailed As a deliverer by some of the population but also Una Lerfelt and having to or a Ort considerably to living on the territory in addition to the terrible condition produced by these Means then is the great loss resulting from the panic of fear probated by lying about the enemy.
