THE MILITARY MOVEMENT PF THE BOLSHEVISTS in Russia areln such chaotic shape that at this distance the events that are taking place there are very in a tangled skein which re- quires .some unravelling. The latest news despatch tells of a big Bolshe- Hst victory in Siberia. In the region of. Omsk, over what is known as the >fallonai Army, with which is Identi lied the names of Denlkine In the South or Russia and of Admiral Kolt- cbak and General Semenotf in Siberia. Tlie iasl heard of General Demkino was that lie was fleeing, having taken re'fugd on board a British vessel -off Constantinople. Admiral Koltchak's forces'have been on the continued re- treat in Siberia before the Red armies, and, according to the last despatch, jhe surrender at Omsk was a most disastrous one so far as it related lo the fortunes of the Anil-Red armies. The mid-winter retreat of Admiral Koltchak's forces in Siberia is de- scribed as being, the severest blow that, the Russian national cause has ret suffered. The movement has been carried on along the line of the obw: disorganized piberran railway. On tils railway we read tbat trafCc has: .become congested, fuel is acaj-cej valuable, material Is everywhere being abandoned; and worse than 'all, dissensions have broken out among the national troops guarding Ihe railway: Omsk, the RUT- render of which ;ls referred to in the despatch published in our columns on Tuesday, fell, to the Bolsheviks about two month's ago.1 Since that time Koltchak's troops have been on the run, making 'their way to Irkutsk, in seat of the Koltcbak Government.' This city is about two thousand''miles east ol Omsk, and tile Koltc'hak troo'ps have by now hardly got half across the distance The relreat Is described lo be a mosl piliable'one', a'nd even If the'troops reach Irkutsk it is nol th a1 they will1 arrive at a haven of safet> in that.
