Quite recently "the ese boldly denianaeaV the arms, as their property, admittins that they iad furnished them to the Cossaks In the first instance. When Bolshevik outbreaks oc- curred recently" on the Amur river, iho Japanese called upon the Americans .o come lo their assistance in quelling he disturbances.' The Americans re- !used, on tfee ground tiat the .ionlsts were riot Bolsheviks, .but cit- izens who were "fed up" with existing conditions.

As the vast majority oenly recognized Kolchak, and act- ually tuken the field against the Bol- heriks in, the Ainur region, their alms are not regarded by any Russian as iHruistic. Monarchists are willing to rive them anything iti the way -of erritory or mineral concessions for heir assistance against the Bolshev- sta and against the radicals of all rart.es.

Des- pite the "feelers" sent out from Ume, o time through the it is. not Jkely that they will withdraw from Siberia unless pressure is brought by the Allies, or political events in Japan where the poputarist movement is growing, force a curtailment of mil- itary activity. While the concert ot powers in Si- beria has been playing this tune, Rus- sian, political opinion has not stood still. In point of fact conditions are worse than they were several months ago. This state of affairs arises from a number of causes, one of nrhich is the high handed action of tho Omsk GoTerr.menl In repressing its adversar- ies. One of the oldest newspapers, in VladUoslok was suppressed when it discussed certain phases of Allied ac- tivity. Bight members of the Siberian Assembly were taken from prison and executed in the month of December. Recently a number of members of the Zemstvo in this district were Impris- oned and sent up country, while many prominent men have been banished. Begin to look Hke old times before tie Herolutkm. Then ttie Prinue'a Is- land scheme had a grave effect on the Russian mlbd. A third point is that, due to the Allied iwlicy of IiiactlTity, transportation and economic condi- tions have grown steadily worse, aad so the "fed up" OT the hungry has constantly adiied to Its strength. Men.who. were formerly radicals- are verging: on Bolshevism now. Where the military situation was well hand.three months ago, a serious rising' is now imminent. So much for be'mission of the Allies to Siberia. Perhaps the best Instance of th? non-success of the League of Allies n this country is the railway prob- em, H'Was decided long ago.that the ransportation situation was 'the key o the entire problem here and the Allies set aboat arrangingHt. Six months have been spent In prof I tie? and In the hiUiim the rail ways of the country have been grow ng .worse dally, and the economic sit nation them. The Canadian Earn omic Commission withdrew recently tecaase the serious condition of the ermlnals and railways made trade with Siberia impossible at this time Finally the railway Inter-allied agreement has been ;now the question is whether it is workable or not. It provides for a commissions, and in the last analyst decrees that Russians will continue t opposing forces.
