hold--efs, and-American ring with the People's Commissar Trotzky, I have the honor to ask you to urgently inform the agents of the secret service at Stafka, Commissars I'eierabend and Kalmanovich, that they should work a$ formerly in complete ii-aepenaence and witliout the knowledge of the otficial staff in Petersburg, and particularly Gen. Bonch-Bruevich and the "secret service of the northern front, communicating only with the People's Commissar Lieut. Krilenko. For the head of .the department, R. Bauer, adjutant, Bukholm. Note 'Across the . letter is written (Qorbun- 'Inform Mosholov. N. G." of's initials). In the margin is written ' Passed on to the commissar of war. M. tskripnik. The significance of this letter is that it is to Lenine; that the two chief secretariat of himself and the council passed if on for action, and that Trotzky and Lenine on February 27 were continuing to, hamper the Russian commander at a moment when the German, ami teas threatening '.Petrograd. Mosholov was one of the commissars on the staff of Krilenko, the commissar 'representing the council of commissars in the command of the Russian military forces. His achievements as a disorganizes were notable: This letter indicates that he had the confidence of Germany. . ... . ' XJIave original letter-? , " $ DOCUMENT NO. 13. (Gr. General Staff, Nachrichten Bureau, Section R, No. 753, Feb. 25.) VERY SECRET. To the Chairman of the Council of People's Commissars. According' to reports of our secret service in the de-tachments operating against the German troops and against the Austrian Ukrainian corps, there has been discovered propaganda for a national rising and a struggle with the Germans and their allies, the Ukrainians. I ask you to inform me what has been dona by the government to stop this harmful agitation. For the head of the department, R. Bauer; adjutant, Henrich. Note Across the top is written "Urgent tb : the Commissars of War and Special. Staff. M. Skripnik." The last sontoneer is understood, and in the margin appears a Question marked, initialed "L. T." The first is Lenine's order through': his secretary and the second may possibly be taken as Trotzkifs opposition to any action. The loss of the Ukraine by counter-German intrigue was a sore point in prestige with him. But his essential obedience to Germany was not lessened. Have original letter. DOCUMENT NO. 14. (G. G. S., Nachrichten Bureau, Section R, No. 278-611, Feb. 7.) To 'the Commissar of Foreign Affairs; . According to information of the secret service department it has been ascertained that the promise given' personally by you, Mr. Commissar, in Brest-Utovsk, that socialistic agitational literature would not be circulated v, among , the German troops is not being fulfilled. Tell me what steps will be taken In this matter. For the head of the department, R. Bauer; adjutant, Henrich. , Note Brusque words to the foreign minister 'of the Soviet government of Workmen, Soldiers and Sailors of the Russian republic, delivered- not by ai equal in official rank, but by the deputy of a German major at the head of an information department of the German government. Did Trotzky resent or deny the imputation? Instead he wrote with his own hand in the margin, "I ask to discuss it. L. T." Thus he admits that he did give the promise at Brest-Litovsk. The ' question raised con-cems only the measure of obedience to be required. Have original letter.. DOCUMENT. NO. 15. (The counterespionage with the Stavka, No. 311, special section, Jan. 29, 1918.) A WARNING. To the Chairman , of the Council of People's Commissars: The counterespionage at the Stayka advises that at the front is being spread by unknown agitators the following counterrevolutionary lit ertaure: , . - v" 1. The text of circulars -of various German government institutions with pi oofs of the connection of the German government with the Bolshevik workers before the passing of the government into their hands. These leaflets have reached also the German commanders. The supreme commander has received a demand from Gen. Hoff man to stop this dangerous agitation by all means possible. 2- A stenographic report of the conversation of Gen. Hoffman with.Comr-rade Trotzky, whereby, it was suppos-" edly proposed to the latter to make peace on considerations of considerable concessions on the part of the central empires, but on the obligation of . the Russian government to stop the socialization .of the life of the state. .Comrade Trotzky supposedly offered-the termination of the war without . peace and the demobilization of our -army. When Gen. Hoffman announced that the Germans would continue the advance, Trotzky supposedly' replied, Then under the pressure of force we shall be forced to make peace and fulfill the demands." -- This document "has created indignation among the troops. . Against , the council of people's commissars are heard cruel accusations. Commissar S. Kalmanovich. Note This letter is a warning of the slow rising but coming storm that will sweep these boldest pirates of history from the' country they have temporariln stolen. To get a real understanding of the meaning of the second,. .and important section of the letter, it must be pointed out that until February 1 Jhe Russian calendar was thirteen days behind the western European calendar The real date of the letter, therefore, is February 10. This is the date Trotzky's "No peace; no war" pronouncement was made at Brest-Lifovsk. The news of it did not reach even Petrograd until the next day. Yet on thai day printed circulars were being distributed at the front stating that Trotzky had agreed to do the very thing he did do, and giving an augury of events that did take place a week later when Germany did begin its advance and when the Bolsheviks did fulfill . all demands. The fact is that simple truth was being told. Nor is the means by which is was secured at all obscure. A few daring and skilful Russians had found a means to get information from Brest-Litovsk. The circulars referred to in the firs,t paragraph' are of course those already familiar to Washington from February dispatches.. The following naive comment adds to the attractiveness of the letter: "The committee for combatting the counterrevolution states that these circulars were sent from the Don, and the stenographic report was seised in transmission from Kieff. Its origin is undoubtedly Austrian or from the Rada. M. Skripnik." ' . Have photograph of letter. BRITISH OFFICER WINS AMERICAN DECORATION Washington, Sept. 16. Heroic deeds of a ' British officer, for which , the American D. S. C. was awarded,' are set forth in the following report of Gen. Pershing: , ; "Section B The commander-in-chief in the name of the President 1 has awarded the Distinguished Service Cross to Capt. J. M; McNamee. M; C. R. F. A.. British army, attached to the battalion, engineers, for extraordinary heroism throughout . the advance across the rivers Ourcq ' and I vesie, nonneast or unateau Thierry, Prance, July 30, 1918, to August 6, 1918. "Volunteering, he led a detachment of engineers up to the front lines on July 30, 1918, for the purpose of: assisting the advance of the infantry with thermite and smoke bombs. That night he led his men through a heavy enemy barrage, exhibiting courage and leadership. For three days and nights he remained with" his men in the extreme front line in the Bois Cles, greatly aiding in repulsing enemy counter attacks by laying barrages and thermite and phosphorous, cleaning out machine gun,nests in the same manner and enabling our infantry to attack behind smoke screens. On August 5 he took another detachment Into St. Thibaut and brought ammunition into the village before it was occupied by our infantry and while the enemy patrols were still there. The advance of the infantry across" the two rivers, the Ourcq and Vesle, was greatly facilitated and the . lives of many of them were saved by the smoke screen which Capt. McNamee spread. Through this entire advance across these two rivers he conducted himself with extraordinary heroism, setting an example to the men of the regiment to which he was attached, constantly exposing himself to danger in making reconnaisances and at the same time shielding his men." HUNS SHINE AS THE WORLD'S BIG THIEVES London, Sept. 16. Particulars of supplementary treaties between Germany and Russia as ..published in German papers coming to hand here, form a fitting pendant to Vice Chancellor von Payer's speech' on "German- war alms. "Von -Payer . declared . that Germany abandoned her' right to indemnities. Yet she now extorts indemnities of 300,000,000 pounds, through her Bolshevist proteges from.the starving people of Russia. Not until it has been paid will she withdraw; from the main portion of the occupied territory to be restored to Russia. - , She will, indeed, -withdraw into Es-thania and Livonia at once as she has already received an installment of .75,-000.000 pounds, largely in goods, and she will evacuate' a narrow strip east of TTkrainia by degrees as other installments are paid. -' ' ' . ' - She will not quit the remaining and far larger part of the occupied territory until i she has made "further arrangements"- on the-subject and , until "the other" financial obligations, of Russia have been fulfilled. ,She will take 50,-000,000 pounds of the debt In goods to be delivered quarterly until March, 1920, and she will accept a Bolshevist six per cent loan for 25,000,00 pounds, secured in various ways inclusive of "other concessions' to be granted her. These facts explain the interpretation which Hertling and Von Payer placed upon the expression. no annexations and no indemnities." j
