NEWS REVIEW OF
German Convulsions Reveal the
Spirit of Revolt With Military
Resources Still Large*
RED ARMIES ATTACK POLAND
Fighting Bevere With Poles Showing
Splendid Spirit—lslamic Situation
an Anxious One—Peace Treaty
j. and Democratic Platform—
Higher Coal Prices.
By E. F. CLIPSON.
Germany's convulsions reveal a dot
bed of revolt. Although the treaty of
Versailles aimed to thoroughly cripple
the nation In a military sense, reduc
ing Its army to only sufficient strength
for Internal needs, It could not stamp
out the heritage of long years of mili
tarism. Germany Is no less a nation
of soldiers today than It was In 1918.
These soldiers, bred under, an arrogant
system and trained to kill, have been
exhibiting in full measure the results
of their teaching, even though It Is a
light of brother against brother. Ger
many was disarmed in the larger
sense, but the 4llles, as they did not
occupy the country, could not reach
the Immense stock of smaller cannon,
rifles and ammunition, mlnenwerfers,
flammenwerfers, etc. Events since the
•.overthrow of the Kapp revolution in
dicate that each peasant has arms
and the ability to use them. Civil war
woyld be In full blast If the various
groups did not lack cohesion.
The Ebert government, displaced for
five days by the Kapp revolution and
then suddenly confronted by a coun
ter-revolt of radicals Instituted during
the general chaos, appears to be slow
ly struggling back to authority. The
crisis has not entirely pnssed, but an
easing of the situation Is lndlcuted.
This is especially true in Saxony and
some other states where socialism Is
Strong but where the moderate social
ists seem to have prevailed for the
ttme'being at least, over the radicals.
Conditions have been most acute In
the districts bordering the east hank
of the Rhine, especially in the Ruhr
basin, or coal mining region. This
area has been occupied by the Hparta
ddes, bolshevists, communists or
whatever one chooses to call them, the
occupation being by a large, well
armed and effective force. The town
of Wescl, an Industrial and railroad
center of great strategic importance,
has been besieged. Inasmuch as most
of the coal comes from the Ruhr, oc
cupation of it and complete cessation
of mining operations for a period of
ten days would be sufficient to stop all
industry In Germany. Ebert has been
forced to treat with the belligerents to
the point of making Important conces
sions. The affected area Is pretty well
hemmed In by the allied armies on the
west, Holland on the north and gov
ernment forces east and south. The
principal weapon of the radicals has
been their ability to prevent the pro
duction of coal.
Never since the armistice of Novem
ber, 1018, has there been greater need
for a united front and united action
amopg the allies. Unfortunately unison
Is not apparent. The alliance so pow
erful during the war, and which was
to work great principles for the bet
terment of the world, shows signs of
disintegration. America has refused
to ratify the treaty on account of the
League of Nations covenant. Gr«at
Britain and Italy are pursuing alms of
their own. France is charged with Im
perialistic designs. Belgium is less
friendly with France and England oo
account of what she regards as unfair
treatment In the Holland settlement
France may be Imperialistic, but the
case Is not yet proven. She Is at least
consistent In regard to the treaty of
Versailles and the only one of the
allies completely consistent. The
treaty was put Into effect with a loud
blare from all concerned that It would
be upheld. Should France be criticised
for demanding that Germany live up
to tho pactT
It Is a time for the sinking of dif
ferences, for unselfish cooperation
tad the wisest statesmanship. Ger
many scotched the Spartaclde menace
' last year, but did not kill it. The Kapp
revolution was suppressed, but left a
long attendant train of evils. The
present trouble is more stubborn and
may yet go entirely out of band. The
next convulaloo may be uncontrollable.
All Germany and all factions are
emitting a loud wall over the terms of
the peace treaty, stating that It en
forces economic slavery on the nation
and Is at the bottom of the spirit of re
volt. la to Germany's interest to
muko the claim. The limn worsted In
a fight and all wrongdoers seek an
amelioration of the consequences of
their acts. A negative light on the
question of economic slavery is the
action In a recent plebiscite of a por
tion of Schleswtg. The town of Ton
dern, some other nearby towns and a
considerable adjacent area, given un
opportunity to Join Denmark, where
conditions are normal and taxation
light, voted to stay with Germany. It
Is not apparent that tliese people
viewed the prospect of Industrial serv
itude as very serious.
Germany's 'throes have been nc
i composed with much bloodshed.
! Complete figures are not available.
Estimates of deaths from the revolt
and following troubles range between
5,000 nnd 12,000. Earlier casualties
were heaviest at Leipslc, where anar
chy reigned after an attempt to Insti
tute sovletlsm. Much loss of life oc
curred at Berlin, Dusiselilorf, Elberfeid
Russian soviet armies are engaged
In the long-planned spring attack on
Poland. The campulgn has "been,
launched on a 400-mlle front, but the
action lias not been general. Tlie bol
shevists are using heavy artillery,
armored cars other appa
ratus captured from General Denlklne
on the south Russian front. Previous
repulses of the enemy have been for
tunate for the Poles, as they have
heartened the soldiers to a determined
resistance and have affected some
what the morale of the Russians.
Nevertheless, the engagements have
been severe, especially in the vicinity
of Kovno, Kamenetz-Podolsk, Rzecy
cza, Kalenkowltz, Zaslava and Staro-
Konstantlnow. At the latter point,
and In the vicinity of Ruhar and Os
tropol, the reds endeavored to force
crossings of the Slutch river. Kovno
Is an Important railroad center and
Knmenetz-Podolsk Is valuable on ac
count of Its strategic Importance. The
Polish resistance seems to have been
effective at most points, although the
army Is under heavy difficulties, due
to Incomplete equipment and lack of
commissary and medical supplies.
Advices state, however, that the splen
did spirit of the Poles Is everywhere
Just how important Is the bolshevik
campaign remains to be seen. Indica
tions are not lacking that It Is a part
of a general movement of- which the
German radical uprisings and disturb
ances In other portions of Europe are
a part, and timed In consonance.
Other Indications point to a strong
demonstration to affect the various
peace negotiations which the reds are
carrying on with other nations.
Peace, or at least nn understanding
with Great Britain and Italy, has been
an active probability. A solid pact
guaranteeing a cessation of hostilities
between the bolshevists on one side
and Poland, Letvla, Finland and Itou
manla on the other, has been delayed
by the German revolt. A demonstra
tion In force at this time might shorten
the delay and force a consummation
favorable to the reds. In the darkness
of Russian ecents and Lenine's de
signs nothing Is very clear at this
Anxiety has not decreased over the
Islamic situation. Fighting spreads
from Thrace through Anatolia to Ara
bia. Semi-official French reports as
sert the revolt Is connected with Ger
man events. In Thrace the Turks are
In open revolt and defiance against the
allies. Greek troops oppose them. In
Anatolia Italian troops have met a re
verse at the hands of Mustupha Ke
mal. In Clllcla and upper Syria the
French are more thnn holding their
own against the Turkish nationals.
Mustapha Kemal and his supporters
are supreme In the greater part of the
Interior of Asia Minor. British dread
naughts line the Bosporus and British
troops occupy Constantinople, thus
dominating the center of events and
preventing for the time being, at
least, complete co-operation between
the various units of the nationalistic
revolt. The sultan Is powerless, but
the revolutionaries take little account
of him, asserting that he has been
guilty of treachery and lacks courage.
The nationalistic movement claims au-
in Its opigmltlon to the dis
memberment of Turkey.
Our government's reply to a request
of the allied powers for President
Wilson's views does not accord In all
respects with the tentative proposal
for settlement of the Turkish question.
As> stated, the view of the United
States government Is that there Is no
danger of a general Mohammedan up
rising If the sultan Is put out Of Con
stantinople; that Armenia should be
accorded liberal treatment In the mat
ter of territory. Including un outlet trt
the sea; that no government should
have «i paramount Interest In the de
velopment of Turkish territory merely
because such government was a bel

should be administered by an Inter-

powers and laid stress upon the dan
ger of n general Moslem uprising lit
sympathy with Turkey. The note of
the United States asserts that the
other Moslem people have nothing In
common with Turkey and contributed
to the defeat of the Turks In the war.
Senator Knox's resolution to de
clare the war with Germany at an end
did not get before the senate so soon
after the defeat of the peace treaty
as was anticipated. Some changes In
the resolution and a smoothing out of
dlincuHleg were found necessary. A
question has also been advanced as to
the constitutionality of ending a war
by declaration. Unless Internal con
ditions In Germany should render It
Inadvisable, it is scarcely doubted that
a majority will be secured and the res
olution passed, .thus ending the theo
retical state of hostility and permit
ting the resumption of trade and dip
lomatic relations with Germany.
Meanwhile It is not certnin thnt the
defeated treaty will become openly
and squarely an Issue for the next
campaign. If President Wilson can se
cure the adoption of a plank In the
platform at San Francisco declaring
for ratification without changing the
League of .Nations covenant it will b«
a campaign Issue. But the same oppo
sition which developed In his own
party and prevented ratification of the
treaty In accordance with his program,
Is likely to prevent the adoption of ■
platform plank to his liking. v rii«
treaty Is sure to be a big talking Issue
In the campaign, but may not be an
official platform Issue.
No escape from higher coal prices
seems possible; Incidentally another
strike of miners Is not outside the
range of probabilities. President WIU
son has ordered termination of gov
ernment price control on April 1 and
lins asked miners and operators to na.
gotlate a new working agreement on
the basis of the majority report of the
coal strike settlement commission.
Tills will permit n partial absorption
In coal prices of the 27 per cent wage
Increase recommended In the report
Also the Increased freight rates which
the interstate commerce commission Is
expected to grant will be taken care
of In an Increased price for coal. Dan
ger of a strike arises from the fact of
the expiring contract between miners
und operators, which also terminate*
at the same time as government price
control. Anthracite miners have shown
a disposition not to tHke action until
a new contract can be considered. In
the bituminous field the conciliatory
spirit Is not so evident.

his active supporters, If the recom
mendation Is adopted of Governor Al
