Being unable to get any closer they were comielld to use the ordi nary canvas hose. Instead of the pressure hose. This mnde a differ ence of about 50 (tounds In the pres sure used.

Organized la bor's proposed alliance with the non-partisan league, the state grange and the farmers union In the forma tion of a state wide laJbor party will be one of the chief questions hefore the Oregon State Federation ot ta bor which convenes In its a'nnual ses sion at iBend, starting today. This projected step into the polit ical arena, together with the avowed intention of the "red" element in or ganized labor to dominate the state convention, promises to make the coming state convention one ot the memorable meetings 1n the history of organized labor. That the radicals will make a de termined effort to control the delib erations of the State 'Federation of Ijibor Is admitted, but the conserva tives In Portland scout the idea that the radical element will be able to put across any of Its propaganda, al though the IPortland delegation to the state meeting will have a large number of leaders who are number ed among the radical element. Copenhagen, Oct. 6 General en ikene's troops are within 30 miles of OtoI, on the road to Moscow, and the bolshevik! who have been oppos ing him are surrendering In great numbers, a wireless dispatch says. isi; TO SAVE RUSSIA English Conutmndi-r Hay Admiral Standi) l'p for Poor Cham While limine Favors lloargeois London, Oct. . Colonel John Ward who has just returned from Siberia where he commanded a bat talion of (British troops which helped to overthrow the bolshevik power there, says, "In my opinion the only chance for democracy in 'Russia lies in the success of Kolchak. m atti tude on the land question shows that he 4s not the reactionary he has been represented. He sees clearly that the distribution of big estates among the peasantry cannot be inter fered with. "It is proposed that those land owners who have survived bolshe- vism shall be given compensation for the land they bar. loU but there is no idea' of restoring the land to them. Kolchak stands up for the poor peasants against what Lenlne has been called the 'village ot bour geoisie.' "It Is found that well-to-do peas ants bad murdered many of the land owners, given a meagre portion of the poorest land to the poor peasants and joined the bulk ot the' estate to their own holdings. Kolchak, with the advice of representatives of the allies, decided to secure for the poor peasants a fair distribution ot the land. When this was known the com paratively wealthy peasants, who had secured the biggest share ot the land raised the cry that the old state ot affairs was to be restored. In some cases they stirred up- the peas ants to revolt and caused disturb ances which had to be put down by force. "To know what Bolshevism is you should have been with me at Perm when the Joe on the river was melt ing and the bodies of many who had been murdered 'by the ibolshevkii were revealed. I, myself, saw 50 of them and among them were 'the bodies ot a number ot women and children. lAt one place there was a wash house built over the river. The bolshevik! cut a hole In the floor through which they dropped their victims into the deep waters be neath. Bolshevism means the end of democracy. 1 am certain that It Russia is left to the bolshevik', it will ultimately return to autocracy."
