Washington, Aug. 10.-The pressing need for arm.s and ammunition by the people of Western Siberia, who have arrayed themselves against the forces of Germany and Austria, and the German-influenced BolshevIki, is being considered in the allied capitals, according to information received today. Tho answer gf the allied nations to this appeal has not yet been disclosed, but it can bo stated on high authority that tho I'nited States government is anxious to bo of whatover possible assistance. Tho people of Western Siberia with tho aid of the Czecho-Slovaks proclaimed their independence on ,lnly They aro reported to liavo tliou-sand.s of well trained and loyal troops who are wailing only for eiiui|)ment to begin active rpslstanco against tho Germans. Tho people havo never accepted the surrender lo Germany under the Brost-Litovsk treaty and have refused to permit the BolshevIki to siiip from tills district millions of tons of supplies that aro stored there. Most ijnportant of all, however, aro tlie mines of the Ural Mountains that the government of Western Siberia control. These mines produce more than i)0 per cent, of the platinutn of the world. There is also gold and copper and other metals much needed in tlie conduct of the war. In another part of the country are extensive coal mines, the operation of which, it is learned, is being consistently maintained by tlie government.

Washington, Aug. 14.-Organized labor's emphntlc opiDosltlon to any "work or fight" provisions in the new man-power bill extending the draft age, is expressed in a letter from Samuel Gompers, received today by members of the senate military committee. That the so-called Jackson cd-oper atlvo farm at Pincher Creek was a clearing house for army deserters, this being the reason for the elaboratt series of entrenchment* which sur round tlie farm house, was brought out at the trial ot some of the men connected with the armed camp at Pincher Creek yesterday when Williams, one ot the men was fined 150 and costs and three months in jail as an Idler. Full details ot the case are not known but from what the Herald can learn, it was given In evidence at the trial that 'oue of the men had. been making frequent trips, to Calgary where he could pick up deserters and take them down to the farm. One man paid $L'l)0 to the man In charge, and after being fitted out with a camping outfit and three weeks' supply of 'food, made for the mountains. The trench system was described by a police officer who had examined it AA a most elaborate affair which would do credit to soldiers In the trenches, A regular underground' system had been worked out which would make capture in the place almost impossible.
