WASHINGTON. Aug. 10. (Special.)
The Amerl- - and the allied govern
ments, it was learned here today, have
no Intention ol taking any action with
reference to the declaration of the Bol
hevikl Foreign Minister to the allied
councils at Moscow that Russia was in
a state of defense against the -allied
powers on account of the landing
military forces in the north of Russii
The State Department has not re

although the combined Csecho-Slovak
and anti-Bolsheviki Rcssian troops i
' Siberia might constitute a force suf
nclent for such an enterprise.

Confirmation also is lacking of th
rumored declaration of war by the Bol
shevtkl government jainst Japan. Such
a declaration on the part of the Lentne
Trotsky regime. It was believed here,
might prove good politics for the Bol
heviki, at least as it would enable the
Soviet authorities t play upon the
prejudices of the Russian masses
cgainst the Japanese.
The Bolshevik! would be able, also,
to make a very clear distinction be
tween the action of the Japanese in
' Siberia and that of the allies in th
- northern provinces, holding that th
Japanese expedition constituted an in
vasion of Russia, while that of the al
. lies and the United States in Northern
Russia followed revolutionary move
ments on the part of the Russian In
habitants, who Invited the allies to
' give them protection and assist them.
The fact that no mention was made
in the report connecting the United
States with Japan in the predicted or
actualdeclaration of hostilities against
Japan was taken here to mean that the
vBolsheviki recognized that their
cause would not be benefited by de
claring war upon the United States,
but injured, as the Russians would not
be willing to enter into a conflict with
America, the Nation most respected and
loved by Russians.
Officials here pointed out today that
it was not unusual for the Bolshevlki
to dojllogical things, such as omission
or America from inclusion among Bus
la's enemies in the event of a declara
tion of war against Japan.
The Bolshevikl, It was stated in Rus
alan circles, in very few Instances have
observed the law of nations or the
comity internationally practiced, pur
. auing, rather, a coarse and practice
peculiar to themselves, without any re
gard whatever lor established conven
IMfflewlty for Soviet Created.
The Impression prevails here that the
conduct of Ambassador Francis in Rus
sia and the declaration to and con
cerning Russia by President Wilson,
while they have not wholly disarmed
the Bolshevikl in their animosity
toward every country and every person
not favoring them, have at least had
the effect of making it difficult for the
Moscow officials to create an antl
American sentiment in Russia, such as
they maintained towards England,
France and Japan.
News of the arrival of the interna
tional, expeditionary forces in Siberia
Is momentarily expected here, but there
is doubt whether it will precede or fol

possibly American troops also, of the

that the house will fall down, and until

That the car was traveling at fast

GERALD CUDAHY IN ARMY
Alleged Relative of Chicago Packer
Says He Was on Way to Enlist.
CAMP LEWIS, Tacoma, Wash., Aug.
10. Gerald Cudahy, arrested at a Taco
ma hotel Wednesday by local and
United States officials on the charge
of belnir a draft delinquent, now is a
member of the 41st Company, 166th
depot brigade here..
Cudahy, who says he is a relative
of the Cudahy packing family of Chi
cago, explained to military authorities
the reason for his delinquency as to
his traveling about so much that his
local draft board at Calexlco. Cal.,
could not locate him. He said he was
en route to Camp Lewis to enlist when
arrested, but his arrival was delayed
by illness in Tacoma. Cudahy owns a
ranch, he said, in Mexico, near Cal
exlco. Because of his willingness to
enter military service the charges
against him were dropped.
LONDON, Aug. 10. The story of the
tragic fate of the Russian city of Jaro
Slav is transmitted to the Frankfurter
Jaroslav, famous for its splendid
churches and monasteries, was almost
completely destroyed after a siege of
12 days by the Bolshevikl, and thou
sands are homeless.
The counter revolutionaries planned
a simultaneous rising at Jaroslav, Mos
cow and other cities for July 6.
At dawn that day the insurgents at
Jaroslav, led by a former Russian army
officer, arrested the members of the
local soviet in their beds and executed
many of them immediately. They seized
the arsenals, several armored cars and
Red Guards. Reinforced, Attack.
The surprised Red Guard tr6ops were
driven out of the city. They entrenched
themselves in the vicinity and after re
celving reinforcements from Moscow,
occupied commanding positions and be
gan shelling the city.
Fires broke out in different parts of
the town and most of the public build
ings were demolished. Both sides
fought with extreme ferocity, no quar
ter being given.
For ten days there was no drinking
water in Jaroslav as the pumping eta
tion had been destroyed by shells and
the river approaches were kept under
heavy fire from the besiegers.
In the meantime 1500 released Ger
man prisoners, who were about to' be
repatriated, were summoned by the in
surgents to Join them.
German Prisoners Killed.
They refused, whereupon they were
again taken prisoner and several were
killed or wounded by shot or shell. The
rest were refused food.
When the situation became desperate
the revolutionaries surrendered to the
Germans. A German Lieutenant as
sumed control of the city treasury,
which contained 60,000,000 rubles.
The besiegers entered the city and
executed 850 of the Insurgents.
