"Furthermore, it believes that in or
der to check the further increase of the
indiscriminate slaughter of Russian
citizens all civilized nations should reg
ister their abhorrence of such bar

the government to which you are ac

A precedent for this action on the
part of the United States has been
found In situation of a few years ago
when this country, after making a for
mal protest against the Indiscriminate
massacre of the Armenians by the
Turks, called on the nations of the
world to take similar action.
Former Move Recalled.
This alignment of the civilized pow
ers of the world had an Immediate
effect, inasmuch as Germany, even then
friendly and In alliance with Turkey,
became alarmed and exerted its in
fluence upon the Turkish government.
The situation in Russia, however, is
regardedxby officials of the American
Government as even more serious than
was that of the Armenians. Russians

The accusation that a Russian or
alien may be opposed to the Bolshe
vik! rule actually Is sufficient excuse
for his execution.
It Is known that the Russian people
as a whole are opposed to the Lenlne
and Trotzky regime but are kept in
subjection by the terrorists. And it is
to save these loyal Russians that the
United States has called on the civilized
world to take immediate action.
Rnaalaas May Rlae.
If the Bolshevik! be declared out
laws by the world, they could find no
asylum when they are overthrown and
could be put on trial for their deeds.
It might result, it is believed, in the
Russian people overthrowing Lenlne
and Trotzky, as they would be con
scious of the support and approval of
the nations of the world.
There is some speculation as to the
attitude of the. neutrals, especially
those contiguous to Germany, but Mr.
Lansing expressly says in his note
that the joint action he desires shall
be entirely divorced from the atmo
sphere op belligerency and the conduct
of the war."
However, as the major part of the
world is already arrayed against the
central powers and the Bolshevikl have
been pronounced their allies it is
thought the allied governments will
take prompt action. ,

WITH THE AMERICAN ARMY ON
THE LORRAINE FRONT, Sept. 21.
Both German and American lines south
of Metz have now been well stabilized.
Occasional clashes have occurred be
tween outposts, but for the present
neither side is making any serious
effort to alter its position.
The German artillery has continued
its harassing fire, but the American
guns have far over-reached the enemy's
front lines, a shell falling occasionally
in the vicinity of Metz and serving to
emphasize to the Germans the advances
the allies have made.
There has been no bombardment of
the city of Metz, and a bombardment of
that place Is not expected during the
present operations. ihe fire against
the forts around Mets will be continued
at varying intervals.
Fires were observed today In the
town of Dommartin, behind the German
line, together with a heavy movement
of men and wagon trains. These were
taken to indicate a possible further re
tirement of the Germans. A harassing
fire was kept up at different points,
however, against the allied line and on
positions in the rear.
The Germans are using gas shells to
limited extent, especially for sprin
kling wooded areas. The towns of
Vilcey and Xammes and the Presle
Woods, southwest of Metz, are being
more heavily shelled by the Germans.
The American guns are returning the
fire and are harassing the Germans
to an equal degree.
No attempt was made by either side
today to advance. The American patrol
continued to dominate the greater part
of the space between the lines.
