GUILT DECLARED . PROVED
Many of the absolute necessities of 1 lf are scarce In Russia, and since
there Is very Utile system by tha government In the distribution of the
food. It la on the dealers that the problem falls of dividing up the short sup
pllea among the people. Thla photo shows a long line of women and chil
dren waiting to buy milk In Petrograd. Most of them carry pitchers, but
the supply Is so limited that they get very little. This line of people eager
to buy necessities can bo found at alio oat all the stores.

He repeated Premier Lloyd George's
challenge that If the House of Com
mons did not have confidence In the
government It ought to get a govern
ment which would carry on the work
better than the present government.
Hut until the house did this It was the
duty of the members to avoid any crit
icism which would only be damaging.

Prime Minister than I had In the last.1
declared lionar Law. "and I wiah to

With respect to food, the government

The last subject on which he wished
to criticise the- policy of the govern

months there had been an Increase in
the daily national expenditure of

He pointed out that the mere fac'
that Bolo Pasha received money from
Count von Bernstorff. the ex-German
Ambassador at 'W'ashington. through
Adolph Pavenstedt, the former head of
the Amsinck banking house, of New
York; was sufficient grounds for asking
for adcath sentence, even though the
money was not used" against France.
Consequently. Captain Mornet said, he
would ask for the death penalty.
The government counsel then re
ferred to Bolo Pasha's relations with
Ferr.and Monier. ex-president of the
Paris Court of Appeals, and 'ex-Premier
Joseph Caillaux. The prosecutor de
clared the Bolo Pasha case was pre
liminary to other trials.
Public laterest Intense.
The crowd which packed the court
room to hear Prosecutor Mornet sum
up the state's case against Bolo Pasha
broke all previous records at the trial.
The proceedings were reopened be
latedly with the people massed to suf
focation. The spectators were perched
on chairs, desks and radiators or seated
on the floor.
Famous Parisian actresses shared the
benches with society leaders.
The crowd at the outset, however,
was doomed to disappointment, for the
prosecutor. Instead of summing up.

This was considered to be a point for
the defense, as the state had bitterly
opposed the publication of the papers.

A second disappointment for the
spectators came when Captain Bou
