Amazing Theories Bared
, Emissaries' Guidebook.
Destruction of Religion and All
Initiative Power In Minds of
People Is Stepping-Stone.
ICopyrleht by the Public Ledger Company.
Published by Arrangement.)
NEW YORK, Oct. 27. A prominent
American diplomat has placed at
my disposal a Russian document
which bears every evidence of being
the guidebook of the world revolu
tionists. It ia a booklet of 24 protocols, writ
ten by one of "he leaders of the bol
shevist movement for the guidance of
the secret council of the soviet, and
was brought to the United States re
cently by an American intelligence
officer who has been in Moscow and
These protocols, excerpts of which
here are published for the first time,
show the diabolical methods of the
world's master anarchists in planning
the destruction of all government and
the substitution of proletariat dicta
torships under the supreme control
of a man like Lenine. In the third
paragraph of protocol 1 this state
ment is made:
Violence la Advocated.
"It must be noted that the people
with bad instincts are more numerous
than those with good ones, so the best
result in governing them Is obtained
by intimidation and violence and not
by academic arguments.
"Every man aims for power, every
one wants to be dictator if possible,
and at the jami time few would not
sacrifice the good of others for the
attainment of their own ends. Right
is might.
"Political freedom is an idea and
not m. fact," the article read. "It is
necessary to know how to apply this
Idea when there is need of intellec
tual bait to gain the support of the
people for a party. I' such is under
taken to break another party already
in power.
Theory Ia Expounded.
"This aim is made easier if the op
ponent himself is carried away by
the principle of freedom or so
called liberalism, and for the sake of
the idea will give up some of his
power. It is here that the success of
our theory becomes apparent.
The weakened reins of authority
re immediately grasped, according
to the laws of existence, by a new
hand because the blind force of the
people cannot be tolerated to remain
without a leader for even a day,, and
the new authority simply steps into
the position of the old, already weak'
, oned by liberalism."
In speaking of the methods of Intro
ducing anarchy, the superman of bol
shevism confesses there cannot be
"healthy, logical hope of guiding the
masses successfully by thoughtful ar
guments or by statements when there
Ls a, possibility of contradiction.
Party Dlvlxlon Feared.
"Guided by exceptionally shallow
passions, beliefs, customs, traditions
and sentimental theories, the people in
the crowd are inclined to party di
At such a time as this, after gov
ernments have been weakened, by
"liberalism," the protocol states, an
irchy may be introduced into govern
ment and "our right lies in force."
The word "right" is an abstract
thought and there are no proofs of it.
The word means nothing more than
give me that which I want, that I
may have proof of my super strength
over you. In a government wh poor
ly organized authority, where the laws
tnd ruler are powerless, I find a new
right that of attack following the
right of strongest and the destruc
tion of all existing regulations and
statutes, of grasping the laws and
changing all the institutions and be
coming the ruler of those who give us
the right to their own rower by abdi
cating it voluntarily and liberally.
Taking up the unrest which today
la world-wide, the Russian document
states that: "With the present insta
bility of all authority our power will
be more unassailable than any other
because it will be invisible until it is
well rooted that no cunning can
undermine it."
In view of the radical agitation in
the United States and the success with
which William Z. Foster and other
extremists have "bored" into the
American Federation of Labor and the
astounding number of unauthorized
strikes in this country, the protocol
of Russia might be also the protocol
of the boishevists here.
"Our password is power and hypoc
risy, for only power can conquer in
politics, especially if it Is hidden in
talents necessary to govern people."
Xo Method Too Evil to Use.
This excerpt from protocol 2:
"Violence must be the principle;
hypocrisy and cunning the rule of
the government which does not wish
to lay down its crown at the feet
of the agents of any new power.
Evil is the sole means of reaching
the goal of good. For this reason
we must not hesitate at bribery,
cheating and treason when these can
enable us to reach our end. In poli
tics it is necessary to take the prop
erty of others without hesitation if
by that we obtain submission and
"Our government, following the
lino of peaceful conquest, his the
right to substitute for the horrors
of war the less noticeable and more
efficient executions.
"A Just but inexorable strictness
is the greatest factor of the govern
ment. We must follow a programme
of violence and hypocrisy, not only
for the sake of profit, but also as a
duty and for the sake of victory."
The cold-blooded manner in which
Tells How to Darken Gray Hair With
a Home-Made Mixture.
Joicey Williams, the well-known
actress, who was recently playing at
the Imperial Th'atre in St. Louis,
made the following statement about
gray hair and how to darken it:
"Anyone can prepare a simple mix
ture at home that will darken gray,
streaked or faded hair, and make it
soft and glossy. To a half-pint of
water add 1 ounce of bay rum. a
small box of Barbo Compound, and
4 ounce of glycerine.
These ingredients can be bought at
any drug store at very little cost.
Apply to the hair twice a week until
the desired shade is obtained. This
will make a gray-haired person look
twenty years younger. It does not
color the scalp, is not sticky or
the Bolshevist leaders set out to !
gain control of masses of men and
women is indicated by the follow
ing sentence: "We always played
upon the most sensitive chords of
the human mind greed and the In
satiable material desires of men.
Each of these human weaknesses,
taken separately, is capable of kill
ing initiative and of placing the will
of the people at the disposal of the
buyer of their activities."
"Abstract liberty," the testament
reads, "offered us the opportunity of
convincing the masses that govern
ment is only the management of the
country and that it can be changed
like a pair of gloves."
Protocol . 2 deals with the substi
tution of internationalism for nation
alism. It says at the beginning:
World Determination Ia Goal.
"It is necessary for us that war,
whenever possible, should bring no
territorial advantage. This will shift
war to an economic basis and force
nationals to see the strength of our
great power with their aid. Such a
condition will place both sides in the
grip of our international agency, with
its millions of eyes, its watchfulness
unhampered by any frontiers. Then
our international rights will eliminate
national rights in a narrow sense and
they will govern the people in the
same way that the civil power of the
governments govern the- relationship
of its subjects among themselves."
In discussing the attitude of the
press, one of the articles observes
that "The triumph of free speech is
concentrated in the press. But gov
ernments are unable to profit by this
power because it is falling into our
hands." And then turning to religion
and religious liberty.
Church to Be Destroyed.
Protocol 4 maintains that "liberty
could be harmless and remain on the
programme of governments without
loss to the well-being of the people
if it were to retain the principle of
the belief in God, the brotherhood of
man. exclusive of the thought of
equality, contradicted by the laws of
existence which establish servitude.
With such a belief the people would
be governed by the guardians of the
parish and would thrive quietly and
obediently under the guidance of
their spiritual leaders, accepting
God's ways of this earth.
"It is for this reason that we must
undermine faith, extract from the
minds of the people the very prin
ciple of God and soul and replace
these conceptions by arithmetical
calculations and material demands."
This fits in well with the bolshevist
programme in Russia of destroying
the influence of the church and of
substituting the materialism of prop
erty forcefully taken from one and
given to another. In relating the
methods used to destroy faith in the
czar, this protocol states:
"At the time when people consid
ered that the rulers expressed the
will of God, they subjected them
selves, without murmur, to the autoc
racy of the czars, but as soon as we
inspired them with the thought of
their personal rights, they began to
regard the rulers as plain human be
ings. The anointment of God fell
from the heads of the czars in the
regard of the people. Then we de- i
prived them of this belief in God,
whereupon authority was thrown into
the street, where it became public
property and was grasped by us."
Plan la to Perplex Public
In recent years the soapbox orator
has been considered the chief spokes
man of radicalism, and the doctrines
which they have expounded have al
ways seemed absurd In the minds of
intelligent human beings. But accord
ing to the document which I am quot
ing, "it is necessary to perplex pub
lic opinion f.n order to conquer it. We
will appropriate to ourselves the
physiognomy of all parties of all
opinions, and provide them with ora
tors who will talk so much that they
will exhaust the people by their
speeches," and then the "failings of
people, their habits, passions, laws of
living." will be so "intensified that
nobody will be able to disentangle
himself in the chaos. Consequently,
people will cease to understand each
other." This will help us to create
disagreement among all parties, to
disintegrate all those collective forces
which still do not wish to subjugate
themselves to us. There is nothing
n-oro dangerous than private initia
tive. If it has a touch of genius it
car. accomplish more than a million
people among whom we have sown
dissension. We must so direct the
education of society that its arms
will drop hopelessly In the face of in
itiative. The intensity resulting from
freedom of action diffuses power
when it is brought face to face with
another person's liberty. This results
in heavy moral blows, disappoint
ments and failures.
"We will so tire the people by all
this that we will force them to offer
us international power, which, by its
position, will be enabled to absorb all
the governmental forces of the world,
and then form a super-government.
Its arms will stretch on all sides like
nippers and will form so colossal an
organization as cannot but subjugate
all the nations."
Dissension Is Entering; Wedge.
The ideal of the boishevists, ac
cording to protocol 7, is to be con
sidered "the aviators of mankind."
This article, which is the briefest of
the 24, and which is the last one I
shall quote in this telegram, reads as
"The concentration of armament and
the growth of the political state are
essential to the realization of the
above-mentioned plans. It is essential
in our governments that there should
be only a mass of proletariats, a few
millionaires devoted to us, politicians
and soldiers."
This statement applies as well to
this country as Russia. The bolshe
vist sympathizers who testified be
fore the senate committee investigat
ing bolshevism acknowledged that
they were aided invthis work in this
country by "rich women."
"We must foment dissension and
animosities through Europe and with
their help in other continents," con
tinues protocol 7.
Duplicity Also Advocated.
"There is double usefulness In this:
First, we will retain the respect of all
countries by this method for they will
realize we have the power to create
disorders, or to bring order whenever
we wish. All these countries have be
come accustomed to regarding us as
a necessary pressure. Second, we will
entangle by intrigues all the threads
stretched by us into the government
cabinets with the aid of politics, eco
nomic treaties and indebtednesses.
To attain this we will come to
parleys and negotiations armed with
cunning and evasiveness, but in so-
called 'official language we will sus
tain the opposite tactics of seeming
honesty. In this way the people and
governments will be taught by us to
regard only the surface of that which
we show them and will look upon us
as the benefactors and aviators of
"We must be able to counteract all
opinion of war by the neighbors of
that country which would dare to con
tradict us, but even should these
neighbors decide to stand collectively
against us, we must protect ourselves
by a. world war."

A. Jj. Haley of Port of Vancouver
Tells of Possibilities for Us
ing Mountain Streams.
-Establishment of an Interstate
hydro-electric system by Portland
and Vancouver as a means of build
ing up these cities and adjoining
communities is proposed by A. L.
Haley, an engineer retained by the
Port of Vancouver, after a careful
study of power development in tha
middle western and eastern states.
Mr. Haley was formerly connected
with the United States shipping
board and the emergency fleet cor
poration. His study in the east cov
ered a period of six weeks. While
made primarily for his employers it
was, in a broader sense, for the bene
fit of this entire district he said yes
terday, on his arrival in this city.
Within a radius of 100 miles from
Portland, Mr. Haley said. 500,000
horse-power of electric energy can
be developed and this would mean
wonders in the way of encouraging
and building up industrial life of the
two cities.
"To get down to the real situa
tion," said Mr. Haley, "the two elec
tric companies of Portland have de
veloped 111,000 horse-power. There
is at this time, according to figures,
a demand for 200,000 horse-power.
Now there is an everlasting supply
of power in the water falls tributary
to Portland and Vancouver and this
energy will not decrease or falter in
its service once it Is brought into
There is in the Cowlitz 120,000
horse-power, only 60 miles distant,
and 300,000 . horse-power in the
Deschutes, less than 100 miles away,
said Mr. Haley. In addition there
are valuable falls on the Santiam.
not to speak of the enormous strength
in the falls of the Columbia at Celilo,
where government figures show a
mean annual average of 300,000 horse
power available.
"If it could properly be brought'
before the people of Portland and
Vancouver," he continued, "so they
would understand the benefits they
would receive from utilization of the
waterfalls there would be no trouble
in getting 'a bond issue of $25,000,
000. "I am told it costs Portland $12,000
a day for its fuel and electric cur
rent, or $4,980,000 per annum. Much
of this could be saved by supplying
ourselves with electricity for all
purposes. Water power developed on
public grounds ty private individuals
or private corporations must pay a
government tax for the use of the
water, gauged at 10 cents per horse
power per year at the beginning and
increased to $1 per horse-power per
year in ten years.
"Water power developed by munic
ipalities pays no tax at all. bo if
Portland and Vancouver districts
should issue bonds and develop, say
500,000 horse-power, the city weuld
be saving $500,000 a year In govern
ment taxes, in addition to its citi
zens getting their electricity at cost,

which would continually increase and

gredients which go to make up a
great and busy city. Tou have but
to utilize them. There is almost
everything in its raw state, and na
ture has made provision for easy and
cheap conversion of these gifts into
the finished article.
"I swwe-est that Portland people
unite with the citizens of Vancouver
and build an Interstate power plant
of sufficient magnitude to serve the
requirements of both cities. Van
couver, as Portland must know, has
an extremely friendly feeling toward
Portland, and I feel sure no diffi
culty would be experienced in mak
ing a connection of this kind. This
brotherly feeling was cemented by
the union of the interest of the two
municipalities in the construction of
the interstate bridge which has been
of tremendous benefit to both."

News Concerning Official Held for
$150,000 Ransom Is Received
by His Relatives.
HANFORD, Cal.. Oct. 27. William
O. Jenkins, American consular agent
at Puebla. Mexico, who was kidnaped
by Mexicans last Sunday and held for
$150,000 ransom, was released by the
bandits yesterday, according to infor
mation received last night by rela
tives here.
The telegram was from Jenkins'
sister, who was visiting at the ranch
from which ho was kidnaped. It
read :
'Oscar was rescued this afternoon.
Advise relatives. ANN."
As the telegram was telephoned
here from Fresno, the family did not
learn the date it bore.
The telegram was received by the
consular agent's father, John W.
Jenkins, from his daughter. Miss
Annie Jenkins, shortly before mid
night tonight.
Mr. Jenkins said no ransom money
had been put up for the release of
his son as far as he knew, and that
he had no idea how the rescue was
"All I know Is what the telegram
stated," he said.
Jenkins was kidnaped one week
ago tonight, but news of his deten
tion did not reach his family here
until last Wednesday, when a tele
gram was received from his sister.
Miss Annie Jenkins. Later word
came from her that besides kidnaping
Mr. Jenkins, the bandits, who held
him for ransom, had plundered his
ranch home, securing $60,000. Mr.
Jenkins did not consider he was in
any personal danger from bandit
bands, which he knew were in the
vicinity of his ranch, according to his
letters to his relatives here.
Mr. Jenkins' father, in a statement
given out here last Wednesday,, said
the' ransom demanded by the bandits
would be paid. However, he appealed
to national and California officials
for assistance in securing his son's re
lease. This is the second time the
American consul has been held for
ransom, his relatives having been
forced to pay $25,000 to a band of
bandits about five years ago under
somewhat similar circumstances. He
Is said to be worth several million
Whether his relatives In Puebla, his
wife, two daughters and one sister,
had paid the sum demanded on this
occasion the sister's telegram today
did not state. Another daughter is
attending school in Los Angeles. -
Mr. Jenkins is 41 years old and has
been in Mexico 18 years. He is a
prominent merchant and manufacturer
of Puebla. Besides his consular post
at that point he is connected with the
American embassy in Mexico City in
a capacity not exactly known here.
Mr. Jenkins' relatives here did not
consider his life in danger at any time
during his detention by the bandits..
Mr. Jenkins' abductors were masked
at the time they appeared at his ranch
home. According to his family they
were three in number.
Stringent representations were made
to the Mexican government by the
American government, looking toward
Mr. Jenkins' release and it was said
that measures to this end were taken
on the personal direction of Presi
dent Carranza.
