' : Quoting fi-iim flu? nt'u- bolshf-vlst constitution. Mr. Gompers points',put. while the lifth Pan-Russian congress declares for a dictatorship ot! the (proletariat and the poorest" peasantry, a great portion of the pe'tfsiintry' is'j disfranchised, and the largest biilshev'i'st estimate of the proletariat calculates them 'as only one-fifth of the number of peasants. Majority Not Represented^ Even a fairly prosperous .workingman, by.this calculation, Mr. Gompers says, Is. not a proletarian. Bolshevist statistics, he says, show the holshevlst minority does not even represent the masses of factory workers in Moscow, the bplshevist stronghold. Quoting- from bblsli'evlst '.official documents to show the extent of massed terror by the bolshevik!,. Mr. Gompers said "economic condition, in infernal Russia at the present time has absolutely nothing to do w)tli' the merits or demerits of the bolsheyist philosophy of government," and adds: "It should have no influence in determining the judgment of any person upon it as such." .

"In all concepts of freedom within! the. 'American nation," Mr. . Gompers said,.
