Congress of Workmen and Sol
' dieri Reject! Overtures of
Germany by Overwhelm
ing Majority.
Washington, June 27. How a
Russian igiMtor for a separate
peace with Germany waa exposed
aa a German agent before the coun
cil of aoldiera' and workmen'a dele
gstes in Petrograd on June 22 ia
related in a diapatch today from
Ambaiaador Francis.
The agitator, Nikoli Lenin, the
radical aocialiat leader, made an im
passioned speech in favor of a gen
eral peace without annexation or
indemnity and waa answered by M.
Veirensky, who announced he would
repeat Lenin's speech snd proceeded
to read a document almost identi
cal with it.
When M. Veirensky had con
cluded he announced that he had
been reading an intercepted radio
from Germany signed by King
Leopold of Bavaria.
Petrograd, June 27. A resolution
categorically rejecting any move for
a separate peace between Germany
and Russia has been adopted by an
overwhelming majority by the con
gress of workmen's and soldiers' dep
uties ot all Russia, me resolution
at the time declsres that restoration
of peace at the earliest possible day
is the most important need of the
Russian revolutionary democracy.
The workmen's and soldiers' dep
uties will send a delegation to Sweden,
France and England to prepare for
the convocation of an international
conference on the basis of the pro
gram adopted by the executive coun
cil. Text of Resolution.
"The text of the resolution which
was proposed by revolutionary social
ists and the minimalist socialists dem
ocrats, follows: -
"The present war arose in conse
quence of aspirations of imperialists,
prevailing among the ruling classes
of all countries and tending towards
the usurpation of markets and sub
mission at their economic and polit
ical influence of small and decadent
"The war is leading to complete ex
haustion of the peoples of all coun
tries and is placing the Russian revo
lution on the edge of a precipice.
While making millions of victims and
absorbing billions of the wealth of
the country, it threatens to increase
still more the disorder in which Rus
sia waa left by the old regime, lead
ing to famine and turning the coun
try from productive labor for consoli
dation of its newly won liberty.
"The congress recognizes conse
quently that the struggle for more
rapid ending of the war constitutes
the most important problem for the
revolutionary democracy a problem
imposed as much by tha interests of
the revolution as by the aspirations
of the workers of all countries to put
an end to mutual extermination and
restore their fraternal union for the
common struggle for complete libera
tion of humanity.
"The congress recognizes, first, that
ending tha war by means of the de
feat of one of the belligerents would
constitute the point of departure for
fresh wars, increase dissension among
the nations and lead them to complete
exhaustion, famine and ruin; aecond,
that a separate peace would atrength
en one of the belligerents and give it
the possibility of gaining decisive
victory over the others, would
strengthen aspirations toward usurpa
tion by the ruling classes, and while
liberating Russia from the grip of
world-wide imperialism, would hinder
international unification of workers.
"Consequently, the congress cate
gorically rejecta every policy tending
in fact to the conclusion of a sepa
rate peace or to its prelude a separate

Attorney . Mullen challenged the
right of the attorney general to bring
such an action in district court and
declared Reed was trying to invoke
his superior officer, Governor Neville,
from administering the law.
He argued the members of the me
diation board are not executive offi
cers, but merely subordinates acting
under the direction of the governor
of the state.
Affidavits of Robert E. Cowell,
chairman of the mediation board, and
T. P. Reynolds, another member of
the body, were introduced as evidence.
Mr. Lowell's affidavit told of a mes
sage from Governor Neville request
ing htm to can a meeting ot tne state
board of mediation and investigation
to eret to the facts in the labor con
troversy between employers and employes.
Mr. Reynolds' sworn statement was
that "the board had performed no act
that would stir up or foment strife
between the business men and the
"The purpose of the mediation
board," said Attorney Mullen, "is to
call in men from both sides and re
quire them on oath to present their
claims in an effort to get the real
facta in the dispute.
You can t tell me, roared Attor
ney Mullen, pointing his finger at the
attorney general, "that these men
(mediators) were breaking any law
or stirring up any strife when they
met and utempted to get to the bot
tom of the trouble.
"They'll get the facts, which in turn
will get to the public, and public opin
ion will do the rest and determine
who is to blame and which side is in
the right.
"No court injunction will do as
much nor end any troubles.,
"Evidently thia board was enjoined
on the theory it was doing some
thing it shouldn't do.
"Here," said Attorney Mullen, in
troducing 150-page stenographic rec
ord of the mediation board'a proceed
ings, "are the facts and I challenge
anyone to point out where anything
was done or said to justify the attor
ney general's statement that "the
board was stirring up strife and tur
moil. '
"The attorney general is asking the
court to strike down a law passed by
the legislature, invoke the power of
free speech, stop an honest investiga
tion of the labor troubles in Omaha
and throttle invested functions of the

to stop lawlessness in this action, he's
trying to stop an investigation of law

"The New York Central track
is really perfect".
Aniitant Pnftsitr tf Railumyi,
Lui Univtrsity, Belgium.
Professor Carlicr was re
cently in this country
making an official study of
American railways as a
model for Belgium.
In an interview in the New Tori
Times he made the statements
reproduced herewith concern
ing the New York Central
But a railroad, however perfect
to-day, will be inadequate to
perform its functions to-morrow
without constant heavy
expenditures of new capital.
Rising prices for fuel, labor,
materials and equipment make
it imperative that the public and
governmental authorities afford
fair treatment, and permit com
pensating rates, in order that it
may maintain that stability of
credit which is necessary to
attract new capital in competi
tion with world-wide inter
national borrowing.
"My trip on tha New York Central
was made in a splendid new electric
locomotive of 2,000 horse powr.
I have visited many railroad shops in
England and have seen many elec
trifications. Ifoandtheworbnjof
the New York Central electnficatton
reallywoudful. Th. stability of
th. locomotive, the working of th
engine-I waa quite surprised. It
was really splendid. I cannot say too
much for the motion, in a word, 1
did not feel any disturbance which
would indicate a fault in the track or
a wrong inception in the locomo
tive. The maintenance of the track
for the section traveled by me is
really perfect, as compared with
similsr tracks on Europesnrolroads.

terminal. It if a work of genms. It
