cross examination of Ludwig C A. K.
Martens, Russian soviet "ambassador"

senate investigating- committee today
with Wade Ellis, counsel for tha com

the extent to which the witness might
have been connected with revolution
ary propaganda in this country since
he received his appointment from the
Throughout tho examination Mar-'
tens sought to draw a distinction be
tween the acts of his government and
his own "official activities and those
of the Russian communist party. The
witness said he had not incited revolu
tion in the United States and Mr. Ellis
produced a letter signed by Lenine, so
viet premier, dated January, 1919, urg
ing American working men to estab
lish a soviet government and "over'
throw "bourgeoise parliaments."
Martens said the letter did not come
through him, but added that "under
certdiirfciTOumstanoes such k letter
might be. justified." The letter was
"war propaganda," he said, adding
that Russia was at war with all pow
ars during the last two years."
"Tho United States did not declare
war on Russia, did it?" asked Senator
Brandegee, republican, Connecticut
"It made war without declaring it,"
the witness said.
Mr. Ellis called attention to the third
international in Moscow March, 1919,
"long after your establishment here."
He read the-manifesto drawn up at
Moscow and signed by Lenine and
Trotsky. Martens said he was "not
concerned" with what Lenine wrote
"a. a member of the communist part
ly," but added that personalty he
agreed with it.
"I don't want any camouflage
about this," he said. "I am a commun
ist and support the principles of that

Mr. Ellis then took up a proclama
tion of the soviet government, refer
red to as "document number 8" and
which affirmed the intent of. the
"Russia ngovernment to come to the
aid ot the left wlng,o workers in ev
ery country, reganBless of whether
they are at war with Russia or not
and appropriates two million rublea
for the purpose." i
"I think much more than that was
appropriated," Martens said. "At the
time Russia was at: war it was justi
fied. The American government spent
much more than that to Incite rev
olution in my country."
