It was known the expedition was hazardous t since the Armenian national council had made peace with tho Turks,"but It was hoped the Armenian people, numbering 80,000, would offer a stout resistance to their persecutor and If so the strategical gain was held to justify the risk. The Bolshevlkl government was overthrown and a new one set up which bogged' for British assistance. But tho number of troops sent was limited by the difficult line of communication, To secure this small force, including some 10,000 Russian-Armenians on the spot, It was obvious that local .co-operation was necessary. The Oentro-CaBpian government appeared to think do further effort was necessary after the Hrrlyal 6t tho British detachment and the Armenian troops proved quite unreliable In action. On Aug. 26, a determined Turkish attack was beaten off by North Stafford and Worcester battalion and a second attack on another section was also repulsed. By the end of August It was recognized that the co-operation of the local government was insufficient to justify the sacrifice of our small detach man t at Baku in the face of superior numbers on the linea of communication.

On Bppt. 20, the Russian Oenoral Blchalakov occupied Petrousk and promised to send reinforcements to Baku. The first small detachment actually arrived on Sept. 9. The promlaes of reinforcements and th,e comparative enemy inactivity tended to Improve the morale of the allies, but meanwhile the Armenians were negotiating to hand over (lie town to the enemy. The fleet thereupon trained Its guns upon the Armenian quarter. On Sept. 21, the Turks made a determined attack and after a battle of 16 hours, chiefly borne by the British, our forces evacuated Baku. The Russians, by now disgusted with the feeble and untrustworthy behavior of the Armenians, contemplated disposing tho government and assuming control in conjunction with the British. Gen. Dunstervllle reports that evacuation of his forco, the Russians probably helping him with the necessary shipping, realizing that further resistance was useless. In trans-Caspia the Bolshevlki advances have come to a standstill o\y-tng to the assistance of the British troops. Recent events in Russia reveal Bolshevik! tyranny as a desperate mania, threatening the stability of the entire world civilization almost an ominously as German ambitions, unless it is promptly and definitely crushed by the allied forces of democracy throughout the world. REPORT PROGRESS Manager Wilson, However, Refuses to Attend Conference Now in Session Calgary, Sept. 28.-While no settlement has been reached in the Ctowb' Nest mine troubles, the officials report progress. W. U. Wilson, manager of the mines, has left the city, having refused to meet representatives of the men and the conference continues with William Sloan, minister of mines for British Columbia, and Commissioner of Mines Armstrong and Assistant Commissioner Harrison. . According to the evidence which has been produced by the mine officials, the miners have justified their stand as being fair. The evidence show that both Fernle and Michel miners In the early part of the year and again later in June asked for the single shift and at the later meeting of the unions demanded the day be cut from eight to six hours. The end of June the union refused .to tallow Its members to work anything toilt the single shift and ordered any who vere working over to stop. This affected the pump men, fan men, engineers and firemen.' That this action .was taken without notifying .the company of any demands is the statement of the company, which through this action, lost $20,000 in the period before "July 1, when the men returned to work on the double shift. The company's agreement to the proposal on condition that three men work in a room was rejected although the company points out that this would have meant the gaining of 80 per cent, of their demands. Later a mass meeting at both Fer-nle ant' Michel decided to ask for a decision by October 1, although at tho time Mr. Wilson,, the manager, was away from the mine. This was communicated to him and before the date, or. Sept. 6, the union called a strike. That this was in direct contravention and a violation of their arrangement with the district officials is the company's contention and when the director of mines for District. No. 18 called a conference- at Vancouver, Mr. Wilson refused to meet the miners' representatives, unless the work was resumed at the mines In the interval. This was not done and the representative of the company atill adheres to this stand, As a result of his (Investigation, Mr. Sloan'has signified his willingness to ask legislation providing an amendment to the mining law of that province providing for a single shift or the closing down of No. 1 mine at Coal Creek. MAY GET Washington, Sept. 26,-There aro no Americans in the consulate at Moscow, which dispatches coming by way of London said was beseiged by Bolshevlki forces, which demand the sur-render of British and French officers, who had taken refuge there. In leaving Moscow and placing the consulate and American Interests under the protection of Norway, Consul-General Poole took his staff with him. With the exception of the British and French officers probably the, only persons in the consulate are Norwegian officials. The situation is wstched here with Interest because of the possibility that the Bolshevlkl may embroil themselves with the Norwegian government. Great Britain and Prance virtually have proclaimed  the Bolsheviki to be outlaws and America has asked all governments, including neutrals, to which it has diplomats accredited to take action against the reign of terror In Russia.
