Treachery Of Bolsheviki Exposed By Secret Agents Of American Government INSTALLMENT II . HOLE OF TUE KEICIISBANK The following documents show in detail how the German government financed the Russian Bolshevik revolution through the German Imperial Bank. - ' They Bhow what rewards the German financial and Industrial interests demanded in return for the- German support of the Bolsheviki. And they show how the Bolshevik' leaders betrayed their own followers and abandoned the preaching of their social olution wherever the Germans ordered that it should be abandoned. DOCUMENT NO. 8 (Reichsbank No. 2, Jan. 8, 1918.) Very Secret To the Commissar of Foreign Affairs: Information has today been received by me from Stockholm that 60,000,000 rubles of gold has been transferred to be put at the disposal of the representatives of the People's Commissars. This credit has been supplied to the Russian government in order to cover the cost of the keep of the Red Guards and agitators in the country. The Imperial government considers it appropriate to remind the soviet of people's commissars of the necessity of increasing their propaganda in the country, as the antagonistic attitude of the south of Russia and Siberia to the existing government is troubling the German government. It is of great importance letter, apart from the cordial and evidently understanding expressions of the representative or the German Imperial Bank to that supposed enemy of the capitalists of all nations, Lenin. The letter was sent to the secret department by Secretary Skripnik. Perhaps some day von Schanz will disclose Lenin's answer. Have photograph of letter. , , DOCUMENT NO. 11. , (Reichsbank. No. 12378, Berlin, Dec. 28, 1917.) RESOLUTION of conference of representatives of the German commercial banks convened on proposal of the German delegation at Petrograd by the management of the Imperial Bank, to discuss the resolutions of the Rhine-AVestphalian Industrial Syndicate and Handelstag. 1. All loans are canceled the bonds of which are in the hands of German, Austrian, Bulgarian, and Turkish holders, but payment rm.t be realized by the Russian treasury in the course of a 12-months' term after the conclusion of separate peactr. 2 The purchase Is permitted of all Russian securities and dividend-bearing paper by the representatives of the German banks at the rate of the day on the open market. . 3. After the conclusion of separate peace, on the. expiution of 90 days, there are reestablished all the shares of private- railway companies, gov-rnment in order to Bet up 'a uniform govern ment. Represeltatives of the Imperial Bank, von Schanz. Note. Members of the Red Guard were paid from 12 to 16 rubles a day, whereas soldiers were paid hardly that number of kopecks. yThis letter shows where the money came from. The Bolshevik government also required factory owners to pay regular wages to their workers while the latter served in the Red Guard. The notation on letter indicates that it was referred to Menshinski, the financial minister, whose expert councillor was the German,, von Toll. Men-shiinslnki personally conducted the wrecking of the Russian banks, a maneuver that deprived all opponents of Bolshevikism of their financial means of warfare. It was a-classic job of destruction, done in the name of reconstruction. Have photograph of this letter. DOCUMENT NO. 9 (Reichsbank .No. 8, Jan. 12, 1918, Berlin) Very Secret To the Commissar of Foreign Affairs: I am instructed to convey the agreement of the Imperial Bank to the issue of credit of 5,000,000 rubles for the dispatch, of the assistant naval commissar, ( Kudrla-shoff, to ' the Far East. On . arrval at Vladivostok he should visit the retired officer of the Russian Fleet, Mr. Panoff, and instruct .Buttenhoff and Staufacher, who are known to Painoff, to coma to see him. , Both the mentioned agents will bring with them Messrs. Edward Chindler, William Keberleln, and Paul Dieso (or Deze). With these persons it is necessary to think outj a plan for carrying out the Japanese and American war materials from Vladivostok to the west. 11 this is not possible then they must instruct Diese (or Deze) and his agents to destroy the tores. Shiind-ler must acquaint Kudrlashoff with the Chinese agents at. JJikolsk. These persons should receive the agents to destroy the stores. Shlnd-patched against Japan. President of the Imperial Bank, Von Schanz. . Note. If this plan was developed to climax it was not by Kuariashoff. He was killed on his passage through Siberia two or three weeks later and it was reported that a great sum of money was' taken from his body by his murderers, who were said to be two Cossacks. Most of the German agents named in this letter were still active in Siberia in the spring, as shown by Document No. 29. Have photograph of this letter. DOCUMENT NO. 10 (Reichsbank JJo. 5, Jan. 11, 1918.) To the Chairman of the Council of People's Commissars: - w Dear Mr. Chairman: The in dustrial and commercial organizations in Germany interested in trade relations with Russia have addressed themselves to me in. a letter, including several guiding indications. Permit me to bring them to your attention. " 1. The conflict of the Russian revolution with the Russian capitalists absolutely does nt interest German manufacturing circles,, in so far a3 the question does not concern industry as such. You can destroy the Russian capitalists as far as you please, but it would by no "means be possible to permit the destruction of Russian enterprises. Such a situation would produce a constant ferment in the country, supported by famine of n.a-terials and, in consequence of that, of products also. The English, American, and French capitalists take advantage of this disorder and under-stand how to establish here corps -of their commercial agents. It is necessary to remember that German Industry in the first years after the general peace will not be in a position to satisfy the. purchasing demand of the Russian market, having broad similar parallel tasks in the Near East, in Persia,' in China, and in Africa. 2. It is essential, therefore, to conduct a canvass and gather statistical Information with regard to the condition of industry, and, in view of the absence of money ' in .Russia, to address in business ' conversations whichever is desired of the groups of German Commercial banks. 3. Trade with Germany may be in the first period almost exclusively exchange for wheat and for any remaining products to receive household necessltlea. Everything which exeeds the limits of such trade should be paid for in advance to the amount of 76 per cent of the market value, with the payment of the remaining quarter in a six months period. In place of such an arrange-ment, probably, it would seem to be possible to permit, privately, the taking of German dividend , share on the Russian financial market, or solidly guaranteed industrial and railroad loans.) In view of the indicated Interest of German manufacturers and merchants In trade relations in Russia, I cordially beg you, Mr. Chairman, to inform me of the views of the Government regarding the questions touched upon, and to lecolve the assurances of my , sincere respect. Representative" of the Imperial Bank and Stock Exchange in Blrlln, G. von Schanz. . Note. The engaging attitude of the German manufacturers toward Rus- compa nies, and chemical pharmaceutical works. The rating of such papers will be made by the German and Austrian stock exchanges. 4. There are banished and for five years from date of signing 'peace are not to be allowed English, French, and American capital in the following industries: Coal,' .netallurgical. machine building, oil, chemical, and pharmaceutical. 5. In the question ol development in Russia of coal, oil, ai..i metallurgi cal branches of industry there is to be established a supreme advisory organ consisting of 10 Russian specialists. 10 from the German industrial or ganizations and the German and Austrian banks. 6. The Russian government must not interfere in the re ion of questions connected with the transfer to the benefit of Germany of two mining districts in Poland Dombrosky and Olkishky and to Austria of the oil region in Galicia. The transfer of the latter will be only in the form of limitations df the right of making claims, land allotments, and aptllca- tion of capital for the production and refining of oil. 7. Germany and Austria enjoy the unlimited privilege of sending into Russia mechanics and qualified workmen. y x 8. Other foreign mechanics and workmen during five' years after the conclusion of peace between Russia and Germany are not to be allowed to enter at all. 9. The statistical department of producing and manufacturing Industries with the corresponding government organ must be controlled by German specialists. 10. iPrivate banks in Russia arise only with the consent jind according to the plan of the Union of German and Austrian banks, whreby the rating of the stocks of the banks on all exchanges of the nev and old world will be handled by the group of the Deutsche bank. 11. At the ports of Petrograd, Archangel, Odessa, Vladivostok, and Datum will be established, under the leadership of specialists from Germany, special statistical 'economic committees.. As regards the tariff, railway and shipping rate policies to regulate the Russo-German-Austrlan trade relations, this part of the economical treaty will be discussed by the special Tariff Council of the Handelstag. Chairman von Grenner; Secretary Berenbluet. Note. The penned indorsement on the photographed copy of the resolution is "Chairman of the Central Executive Committee - Commissar Menshinsky requests that this resolution should be taken under advise-' ment, and to prepare the ground in the Soviet of the Workmen's and Soldiers' Deputies, in case the Council of People's Commissars will not accede to these requests. Secretary R. Raskin." Menshinsky is Minister of Finance. All of these terms, wholly punitive to America, English, and French capital, could lurk In the secret section in the German-Russian treaty.
