MORTIMER. i A I T'O RUSSIA AS A SOCIALIST REPUBLIC Stockholm, Jan. 16.-A telegram to the Bolshev:"ki paper In Stockholm  states that it is reported from the i Smolny Institute that the" government at a meeting of the constituent assembly on January IS will present an ultimatum that Russia shall1 be proclaimed as a Socialist republic and all ! land and property bo expropriated. The constituent assembly muBt either accept this proposition or it will come into open conflict with the Sovelts, who stand Gn the side of the govern* i ment. In such a conflict the corres-pondent says the constituent assembly will come off the loser.

The industrial] workers are educated to shop early by dear Marnoch and so help out their fellow workers, and as for the" farmer, if he advocates "'Buying at Home," I am sure he -will find no difficulty, of getting hs supplies. "War Times," seems to be the by word of all these capitalist organizers, and I just want to cram one little'sentence into Marnoch's head and that is, why he (Marnoch) seemingly is voicing the sentiment of the retail merchants association, who clam that if -a storekeeper is not getting big enough prices for his wares, join up with them and-^hey wilt show you ; how it is done (See Retail Merchants j Association pamphlet, issued about ; August last).

Izguine was found in his apartment with a bullet wound in his breast, and It was said at the hospital that he had only a slight chance of recovery. M. Izguine, according to M. Oustinoff, was connected in "an important way" with the former emperor's minister of finance. He came to the' United States to further "a most ambi-tious plan" to establish Russian state banks in various states of the United States. This scheme fell through when "American bankers opposed the plan .vigorously." The consul general said Izguine has a wife and two children in Russia and he believed that he recently had received bad news from home. people of this Dominion in general and of Southern Alberta In particular, i The Herald,, of course, being owned by a member of the government, it is possible that there might be some slight advantages^afforded the staff of your paper in the matter of transpor* } tation, etc., if the railroads were owned by the government.
