Famous Russian Commander Meets
ARCHANGEL, Feb. 5. (By the Asso

flicted on the Bolsheviki by the Ameri
can forces Tuesday and the enemy was
driven back in disorder from the vil
lage of Vistavka, on the Vaga.
The American casualties were five
killed and several wounded.. Many
Bolshevik soldiers were taken prisoner
by the Americans.
The enemy early in the morning be
gan a bombardment witti field guns
and howitzer and, under cover of a
ehrapncl and pompom barrage, essayed
a frontal attack with infantry In the
Arctic twilight at 3 o'clock in the
afternoon. The American troops, who
were rested after their retirement
from Shenkursk and were now estab

heavy fire from artillery and machine
guns into the charging Bolsheviki,
whose ranks broke and fled into the
Flank Attack. Abandoned.

reception for the yellow soldiers if they

treatment of prisoners in the Baltic
Yesterday's defeat of the enemy on
the Vaga, together with his failure on
the Kvina, typified the spirit of the
American and other allied troops, who
are fighting with the utmost deter
mination to hold their position until
reinforcements can reach them. These
defeats have considerably lowered the
enemy morale, but the Bolsheviki are
being constantly reinforced and, while
their offensive has been temporarily
checked, there are indications that it
will be renewed when fresh Bolshevik
forces reach the line.

to advance close to their position. They
then fownd themselves suddenly sur

Called upon to surrender, the French
men refused and tried to fight their
way out. Two were killed, threi were
wounded and six were unaccounted for

Large Scale Improbable.
PARIS, Feb. 5. Military intervention
in Russia on a large scale is not to be

dealing with what he characterized as
a most disquieting situation."
As to the general work of the peace
conierence. the Foreign Secretary de
clared all possible haste was being
maae to settle on the peace terms.
"Let public opinion be reassured." he
said. "The delegates to the peace con
ference have no intention of employing
dilatory methods. They are using all
their energy and skill to attain as soon
as possible the Just peace to which the
whole world .spires. That is their one
aim, their sole ambition."
Alliances between the various na
tions will not be affected by the .exist
ence of the society of nations now in
process of formation, said Secretary
Jbairour. He was asked the direct ques
tion as to whether the formation of the
world society would involve the abro
gation of alliances.
"The constitution of the league of
nations, he responded, "will involve no
modification of the treaties of alliance
previously concluded.
"As to the question whether special
coalitions of two or several peoples
could be formed aside from the league.
Mr. Balfour added, "the conference
alone can decide.
