During the past few days the daily
papers at Omaha and elsewhere have
been conjecturing at the possible
ccident which may have befel an
American transport carrying a part
of the Rainbow division from Minne-
ola, L. I., after several days .at sea,
causing it to turn back. It is be-
ieved by some that the vessel Was
torpedoed, thus being unable to com
plete its journey with safety, al
though this scarcely seems possible,
in view of the fact that the govern
ment in return for a voluntary cen-
sorchip of troop movements on the
part of newspapers over the coun
try, has promised to report prompt
ly any casualties or serious accidents
occurring in the service". There were
in the 168th Iowa, which was the
division believed to have been aboard
the ship, five boys from this city and
the possible fate which may have be

Lansing today authorized the state
ment that neither on the basis of
many official advices to the govern
ment, nor on the basis of Premier
Kerensky's statement could it be said
that Russia was about to quit the
Secretary Linsing, deploring any
interpretation of Kerensky's state
ment to the effect that Russia was
out of the war, assailed the Wash
ington Post, which printed over a
brief and preminary account of Ker
ensky's statement the headlines.
"Russia Quits War." He authorized
this statement.
"There has been absolutely noth
ing in the dispatches received by
the department of state from Rus
sia, nor in information derived from
any other source whatever, to justi
fy the impression created by the
Washington Post today, principally
by the headline, 'Russia Quits War,'
that Russia is out of the conflict.
"A reading of the full interview
with Premier Kerensky, of which the
paper published only an abbreviated
and preliminary account itself shows
that the headline is entirely unwar
ranted. Our own advices show that
the provisional government in Petro
grad is attacking with great energy
the problems confronting it. Re
ports received from Petrograd both
by mail and by telegraph show that
Premier Kerensky, far from yielding
to discouragement, are still animat
ed by a strong determination to or
ganize all Russia's resources in
wholehearted resistance and carry
the war through to a victorious com
pletion. At the same time this gov
ernment, like those of the allies, is
rendering all possible assistance."
