Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - September 11, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta vvKDNKSDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 1918 TTTK tiCinrihiLWHt tymcn rmnHt:m PAGE THREE |ipCA rep. CEpRiC TO ajCT UP A H ^0 \l*iUtKVILLE PER-VWMANCE TOR THEi,PENEFlY pciUMt>>c�ipONW T mt *)E HAD VOLUN^RED^ PRES106 CH-Ar CEPRKTS CROSS BAZAAR, r ^im5F CDURee If \0U,DISAPPROVE NEUTRALS PROIES WHOLESALE KILLIN OF PR Stockholm, Sept. 11.-Despatclins re-Ceiveil from Russia announcliiK that the neutral ministers liave protested against the wholesale shooting of political prisoners ana threatening to expel the Bolshcviki from neutral continue, caused no surprise to travellers, recently returned from Russia, C'ounlries if tlie political executions who were In Moscow and Pctrograd when the wild taking of hostages began. , Nino thousand officers of the old arni.v. who were ordered to register at Moscow, were lield prisoners for nearly a week. Cholera broke out among tlieni, because of the crowded and Jiiaanilary conditions of their quarters. Leon Trotzky. the Bblsheviki secretary of war, wired Gem Alexieff, com-niandor-in-chiof of the 'anti-Bolshoviki forces, that an officer would bo shot for every ' Boiaheviki killed by the Czechs or White Guard. Alexieff is reported to have replied that if officers were sliot, he wouitl not stop reprisals until every Jew ju Russia was Ouarteretl. Finally, a majority of the officers, halt of them from Moscow, �were released, but limirtreds of offic-ers'are missing and are reported to have been shot. Many thousands of officers In Moscow refused to answer the call to register and made their ea-cape to the various anti-Bolsheviki Iroiits. In Petrograd, the officers summoned for registration were generally taken to Kronstad, where thousands arc still held prisoner. Capt. Cromio, the British naval attache, who was killed by the Bolsheviki, who mutilated his body and let It hang out of the cmiiassy window nritil the neutral diplomats threatened to leave Petrograd - if it was not removed, was friendly to the Bolshcviki and belonged to the group of British officials who recommended .recognition of tlie Soviet government and co-operation with it, until Trotzky broke faith about permitting the Czechs to leave Russia by way of Siberia. R. H. B. liockliart, acting British consul-general at Moscow, whom the Bolsheviki arrested on a charge of_at-tempting to corrupt Lettisli soldiers, was also very friendly to the Bolshe viki and co-operated with Col. Ray mond Robins, head of the permanent American Red Cross mission to Russia, in efforts to establish' better relations between .the entente allies and too .Soviet. On May 2G, the date of the first clash of the Czechs with the Boislie-Yiki, sharply marks the decline of the Kolshevikl power. It then began to measure strength with the military organization and there was a domonstra tlon by soldier.?. The Bolsheviki officials of high and low degree now real lie how colossal Trotzky's en-or was and less than two weeks ago they caused it to be intimated officially in Moscow to the entente officials that the Soviet government is now willing to permit the Czechs to leave Russia as originally agreed.. ; But tlie change of heart -wa's too late, as the Czech organizations have fomed the basis for scores of anti-Bol-slievlltl to unite In numbevs fai- exceed-' ing the Red army and Have demon-etrated how weak the Bolsheviki is utside of Moscow a:nd Petrograd. The entente powers could not move flie Czechs out of Russia now If they Joslred to do so, as the Czechs, according to the Bolsheviki figures, comprise only about 15 per cent of the forces �whioU are fighting the Bolsheviki on the Volga and along the trans-Siberlaii railway. Trotzky's visit to the Volga front brought no result. Ho boasted that Kazan would be smashed instantly, but reports of Bolsheviki officers printed in the official papers show how Impossible It is for the Red Guard to conduct any organized movement of magnitude. 4> TION ARMY WAR WORK ^.
