HOOD -RIVER, Or., June 29. (Spe
cial.) No residents of Oregon are
looking with more interest on the situ
ation in Russia, than the Finnish
colony of Hood River, composed of
several orchardists, who have sent five
of their sons into the American army,
In explanation of the struggle in
their homeland, local Finns have re
ceived .n article written by Santerl
Nuorteva, representative in the United
States of the Peoples' Republic of
This communication follows:
"There seems to be considerable mis
apprehension about the significance of
the so-called 'White Guard' and "Red
Guard' struggles in Finland. Our Gov
ernment has been temporarily defeated
by the Finnish aristocracy in conjunc
tion with the German Army. But the
fight is not ended. The great majority
of the Finnish people awaits the first
opportunity to drive out the German
invaders, and the day of reckoning will
come soon.
Social Conditions Reviewed.
"It is impossible to understand events
in Finland without considering the
social and political bacKground. Up
to 1905 there was no popular repre
sentation In Government. The great
mass of the people was totally without
political rights. Under the old feudal
constitutions most of the producing
population were in a condition of
virtual serfdom. Tenant farmers were
compelled to yield the wealthy over
lords payment in labor. The inherited
Swedish-speaking aristocracy, with
feudal class privileges, were able to
continue under the old constitution
mediaeval forms of oppression.
"In spite of this the Finnish people
are perhaps the most literate in the
world. Ninety-eight per cent of the
population can read and write.
The revolution of 1905 established a
single diet in Finland, based on uni
versal male and female suffrage, with
proportional representation. In the
first diet elected nnder this democratic
franchise the Socialists secured 40 per
cent of the members, by far the largest
block among the various parties. This
strength was increased in successive
elections, and in 1916, the labor party
secured a clear majority in the diet.
Aristocracy Vetoes Laws.
'Most of the laws designed to relieve
the feudal oppressions under which the
great mass of people suffered were
vetoed by the Czar, through the Influ
ence of the aristocracy, which was in
close contact with the Russian Bureau
cracy. Finland was a grand duchy of
Russia. The Czar meantime was at
tempting the Russification of Finland
through a system of military terrorism,
which was being opposed by the strong
Socialist organization.
"At the time of this revolution the
White Guard' was formed, composed
mostly of hired thugs and strikebreak
ers, armed with German weapons and
officered by the Finnish 'Chasseurs,'
trained in the army of the Kaiser.
"For many weeks there have been
etories in the papers about the "Red
Guard' atrocities. Many of these have
been exaggerations and many down
right lies. They have come mostly
from German sources and reactionary
Swedish sources, and from pro-German
White Guard leaders who up to a few-
weeks ago seemed to be able success
fully to camouflage . their real pur
poses from many honest American
representatives with whom they were
in contact.
-, Huff tail Element Deplored.
"That there have been killings by
the Red Guard that should have been
avoided I do not deny. In any coun
try in revolution a certain ruffian ele
ment, devoid of principles, inevitably
bobs up to take advantage of the situa
tion for plunder. Tha provisional gov
ernment leaders have taken stringent
measures to put down such persons.
But there is also another element of
honest persons who, in the heat of
revolutionary passion, sometimes see
"But from the start the forces of my
government have been under strict or
ders to give 'White Guard' captives all
the rights of organized warfare, though
the 'White Guard' leaders have openly
boasted that 'Red Guard' captives were
to be slaughtered like 'bandits.
"The producing classes of Finland,
strongly organized and trained in more
than 10 years of parliamentary achieve
ment, desire to establish in Finland a
co-operative commonwealth, without
special privileges or political or eco
nomical exploitation of any kind. They
are opposed by the aristocracy, leading
the junker forces of Finland, willing
to accept German vassalage to perpet
uate their feudal control and keep the
mass of people in chains.
German Control Opposed.
"The 'labor movement in Finland
which welds the great mass of people
together, is the only organized demo
rratic movement opposed to mediaeval
junkerism and German control. It is
the form the democratic movement
takes in Finland, as well as in Russia,
and a necessary form. In Finland and
Russia the ideas of social and economic
democracy are just as vital to this
democratic movement as were the ideas
of political democracy to the demo
cratic movement in America in 177$,
"Surely the tolerant American people
-will be patient with the democratic
movement in Finland and Russia.
"The American states, after they
achieved their independence, wen
through six years of political chaos
before they achieved stability. The
much more far-reaching economic and
social readjustments which the great
mass of the Russian people desire can
not be accomplished throughout that
great population in that huge territory
in a few months. In Finland our task
is somewhat easier, because the foun
dation has been laid in over 10 years
of parliamentary organization.
