Trotzky's stand. Apparently adding
to the crisis is the refusal of the Ger
mans to transfer the adjourned meet
ing cf the peace conference from
Brest-Litovsk to Stockholm.
The virtual collapse of the nego
tiations between the central powers
and the Russian bolsheviki for an
early peace settlement and the pos
sibility that hostilities again may be
resumed by the Russians on the east
ern front, even though with only s
comparatively small army, have caus
ed surprise and perturbation in Ber
lin and Vienna.
Realizing the seriousness of the
situation the German and Austrian
emperors have conferred with their
chiefs of state and the German and
Austro-Hungarlan foreign ministers
who attended the peace negotiations
at Brest Litovsk, have been sent back
there poet haste, probably in an at
tempt to moderate the situation.
. German' Socialists Protest.
Not alone are Leon Trotzky, the
bolsheviki foreign minister, and the
other leaders of the counter revolu
tion in Russia dissatisfied with the
terms of the peace proposals of the
central powers, but the heads of the
German socialist factions also have
expressed their antagonism to those
sections which call for the retention
of Poland, Litbunia. Courland and
other territory now in possession of
the invaders. s
Trotzky, as the mouthpiece of the
bolsheviki, has announced that the
Russian workers will not accept the
peace proposals which he terms as
"hypocritical." He asserted that if
the central powers did not agree to
the free destiny of the Polish and
Lettish nations it would be urgently
necessary to defend the Russian

issue passports to Hugo Haase, Geo.
Ledbour and Carl Kautsky, social
ists, who desired to go to Stockholm
to attend an unofficial peace con

this refusal should not bo interpret

The German government believed,
he said, that the progress of peace
negotiations might be hindered by
