Americans Unable to Find Al
leged Hero Named
Motlvcjia Gora, Russian Lapland,
Aug. 29. —Legends are springing up
among the peasants in the territory
about the Murmansk railway front,
where American railway troops as
sisted the Russo-AUied forces
against the Bolsheviki, about the
personality of a Bolshevik chieftain
know'n as Spirodonoff.
Like the notorious "Maxo," a
daring Bolshevik whose fame has
become widespread in the Ukraine,
Spirodonoff has never been seen by
any of the allied forces, though
captured documents and overhead
telephone conversations between
Bolshevik commanders. convince
the allies that Spirodonoff exists.
One of the stories about him is
that, as Bolshevik commander of
operations on the Murmansk front,
he has been twice wounded, but
now insists on being carried to the
front in a chair, from which he
directs front line operations. Prom
peasants it is learned that he com
bines great personal daring with
absolute ruthlessness in dealing
with those who oppose him.
John Regan praises New In
vention that helped to restore;
His Hearing.
"X will further say for your In
haler that I spent $l5O doctor bills
for my right ear as it ached terri
ble for about five years. Sometimes
I could not hear anything in it for
3 weeks at a time, now I can hear
pretty good and Earache is all gone.
What a blessing! I have loaned ray
Inhaler about half the time since I
had it to convince other people. I
expect you will get at least two
orders from this place that will
mean more."

We ought not to accept cession of
German territory. We ought to de
clare a general policy to regurd with
concern any threut of disturbance of
general world peace, but at the same
time we should reserve complete
liberty of action either independently
or in conjunction with other powers
in taking such steps as we determine
wise for preserving the peace.
Carry Out Spirit of 191U
"We ought then to carry out the
spirit of the act of 1916, which au
thorized the President to convene the
nations of the world together to es
tablish a code of international law,
reduce armaments, to establish an
international tribunal and go as far
as possible in the direction of secur
ing peace through justice, through a
league to which all the world are
parties in its formation.
OlTci-s Dignified Exit
"This would be a fitting, generous
and dignified exit from a situation
in which primarily we have no di
rect concern.
"It is indeed a hard and cruel
peace that this Treaty stipulates and
I have no objections to its being so,
but see no reason why we, who do
not partake in its spoils, should be
come parties to its harshness and
Its Flaws
"I sec no reason why we
should be parties to lni|>osing
nixin Germany a Treaty whoso
terms, our negotiators say, she
Will he not üble to meet; a
Treaty that robs our arfcicilt
friend, China, in a way disap
proved by our negotiators; a
Treaty that lays tile foundation
for centuries of blood-letting
into which we should not be
drawn, a Treaty that contrary
to our own judgment fails to
fix tlie amount of indemnity to
be paid, leaving that vast ques
tion to the whim of a majority
of a commission on reparations,
a Treaty predicated upon the
assertion that a stricken anil
helpless world requires our
counsel ami support, but leaves
to the beneficiaries the decision
as to the measure nnd charac
ter of tlie benefactions they are
to receive; a Treaty that with
ominous words presages our in
volvement in tlie eruptions of
suppressed volcanic world con
ditions; a Treaty that would re
quire us to underwrite all the
regional understandings between
nations reeogni/.cd by the
league, most of which are
based upon oppression of weaker
nations, many of which are as
yet sex-ret and undisclosed, and
when disclosed might drive us
• to nets of injustice similar to
' tliut in wliicii tlie President felt
himself eoiupclletl to uequlesce
in tlio ease of Shantung."
i A state of peace he said, actually
' would be established in the world
I as soon as three of the great powers
| had ratilied the Treaty and that the
j United States should make her own
I peace status complete by a concur
j rent resolution of Congress.
Tra-d in Vain for Data
I Declaring the foreign relatidns
committee had tried in vain to get
important data relating to the
treaty, he said the people at last
| wore waking to the true issue as
i the (acts about the Versailles nego
tiations leaked out.
"Little by little," he continued,
"they are bringing a divulgence of
the facts connected with the treaty
and they may now hope finally to
see the whole of the great gaunt
j tragedy into which those whom they
had charged with protecting them
j were about to betray them.
"What is it about these things
i that the people cannot know? What
]is there to hide from them? Must
I we take this thing, as the German
i people must take it, unsight and
I unseen? Are we to be no more ad
i vantuged than our fnllen enemies?"
| V. S. AcciKtiplislicti Ihirpose
Quoting President Wilson's dec
laration in 1917, that the purpose of
the United States in the war was to
overthrow German autocratic power
and leave hc German people free
to "choose their own ways of life."
He said that with the signing of the
armistice "we had accomplished the
full purpose for which we entered
the war," and should have "quit the
war as we entered it. still free and
independent, masters of our own
lie paid a tribute to the service
rendered the nation by citizens of
German ancestry, who fought glad
ly, in the hope that their kinsmen in
Germany would benefit in the end.
Instead, he said, peace conditions
had been imposed which the Ger
man people never could fulfill.
Calling attention that Russia was
not included in the peace settle
ment, he continued:
"Thing you Germany—smarting
and staggering under the terms of
this treaty—will supinely rest con
tent with the dole of grace and suf
ferance we are vouchsafing her, the
crumbs from his victors' table?
That people will not more cease to
plot and plan to recover their for
mer high estate, than did Satan
plunged into the abysmal depths of
hell. Whether they are In the lea
gue, if formed, or out of it, Ger
many's agents, secretly or openly,
will be at work with her former
Allies, and with injured Russia and
with Japan. As Russia goes, so
will go the whole Slavic and affilia
ted peoples. And if Germany suc
ceed in this, western Europe at
least must perish.
Striped of its idealistic phrases,
he said, the treaty really was hut an
alliance among five great powers,
against whom Germany would try to
hring a stronger alliance. The real
interest of France he said, was in
gaining the friendship and not the
enmity of the German people.
"The instrument before us," he
said, "is not the treaty but the truce
of Versailles.
"It takes Germany's territory, Eu
ropean and foreign, without com
pensation; it takes from her prac
tically all of her ocean shipping, a
largf portion of her inland vessels;
it deprives her of all special benefits
of treaties and conventions; it takes
her cables, it compels her to supply
large quantities of raw materials;
it internationalizes her great river
systems and throws them open to
traffic of all nations on a national
basis, as if they were the high seas;
it opens her coastwise shipping to
all nations; it compels her to grant
exceptional import and export privi
leges and to accept important re
strictions; it closes out German in
terests in practically the whole civi
lized world; it closes out the inter
ests of that same world in Germany.
V. S. Completely Hound I'p
"Having done all this, it assesses
against her provisionally, with a
stipulation permitting an increase,
a debt of one hundred and twenty
billion gold marks, which is in ad
dition to the property restored in
kind and to the value of the boats,
gold and securities delivered; it
makes her responsible for these
damages inflicted not only by her
self, but by her allies, and even by
the allied and associated powers
themselves, with a list of items
which includes some admittedly
contrary to the rules of interna
tional law hitherto existing; finally
and in addition, she is compelled to
answer to her own nationals for the
value of the property taken by the
Allied and associated powers.
"The United States is bound up
in every one of the obligations and
duties incident to the enforcement
of these terms with the great re
sponsibilities attached thereto."

Local Organizations Plan For
Big Turnout on Mon
day Morning
Railroad men will be a big part
of the parade on Labor Day. Mon
day, September 1. Every Indication
point* to one of the - greatest cele
brations in the history of labor or
ganizations. There has been much
activity in this city and vicinity.
This is true, especially with the
three city lodges of the Brother
hood of Railway and Steamship
Clerks, Freight Handlers, Station
and Express Employes, viz.: Penn-
Harris Lodge No. 640, Keystone
Lodge No. 1302 and Blue Ridge
i Lodge. This is one of the youngest
and strongest bodies of organized
• labor in the city, having been insti
tuted Jujy 1, 1918, and up to date
they have enrolled a total member
ship of approximately 1,000. Thib,
however, includes a considerable
number of employes from the out
lying districts.

Wh'le the prime object of this or
ganization was for the bettering of
financial and working conditions, it
is also their purpose to unitedly, of
fer a more appreciable service 10
the respective corporations employ
ing them.
A central committee of these
three lodges held an important
meeting on Wednesday and perfect
ed arrangements for their participa
tion in the parade to be held Mon
day morning. They will be headed
over the route of the parade by
the celebrated "Burger's Military
Rand" of Lancaster, formerly the
"Fourth Regiment Band."
It is urged that every member of
these lodges turn out on Monday
morning for this parade, reporting
at their appointed plnce at Second
and Pine streets not later than
9.15 o'clyock, where they will bo
formed in marching order by com
petent marshals. It is expected that
every member will be in line. -
