Not So" Many People Now Are Willing to Submit To This Goveinment PEACE NEGOTIATIONS HELD IN STOCKHOLM London, Dec. 2.")-Thero have been occasional assertions In recent Petro-grad despatches that the influence and power of the Bolshevik was waning, but never with such unanimity as In a special despatch dated from tho Russian capital Sunday and printed today. Nearly all make tho point In one form or other that detection from tho workmen's and soldiers', organization is growing constantly. Among the causes alleged are general lack ot authority, the Increase In,' the reluctance of the population to work and tho scarcity ot foodstuffs. The main desire of the soldiers la. said to be tor peace. The correspondentg cite instances of Bolshevik troops refusing to march, declining to attack tho irkrainiiins and permitting the Cossacks to disarni" them without resistance. Fighting, It is said. Is the last thing they are willing or intend to do. A hostile spirit is reported to survive among the Baltic sailors and the Red Guard, but tht>. former are not numerous enough to conquer tho Ukrainian^ and the Red Guard Is largely untrained. It Is reported, therefore .that war against the Ukraine probably will not nfateriallzo on any serious scale. / CALLED FROM CAPITAL.
