Germany has well matured plans
for the conquest and oppression of
the United States, he said. This was
evidenced, he said, by the conversa
tion of some recently captured Ger
man officers who talked to their Eng
lish captors freely without knowing
that an American officer was present
Huge Indemnity from U, S.
"These Germans announced that
Germany was going td win and that
they were going to smash the United
States and bleed it white with an en
ormous indemnity and make it pay
the whole expense of the war," he
said. "They had no thought of peace
and no man in his senses doubts that
this would be the policy adopted as
a matter of course by Germany.
"If at this moment, while we are
still ; helpless, France and England
were defeated, thi German fleet would
be at our doors in a fortnight and
an army of conquest would have land-
ed here within a month. Some years
ago I saw openly published in Ger
many a pamphlet written by mem
ber of the. German general staff con
taining a well worked-out plan for the
conquest of the United States which
the German staff regarded as easy,
and for the levying of enormous con
tributions at our expense."
Saying that the preparedness meas
ures we are taking now should have
been carried out three years ago, the
colonel declared that, "if Germany
couuld land a single small army of
50,000 men in this country we would
be wholly unable to match it for we
have neither artillery nor airplanes
that could be put against them. If at
this moment our allies suddenly made
peace, we would be a helpless prey to
Germany or any other first-class Eu
ropean or Asiatic military power."

Petrograd Stirred by Revela
tions that Premier Sent For
Korniloff's Troops and Gen
v eral Sent Too Many.
. (By Associated Pre.)
Petrograd, Sept 24. The Korniloff
mystery, arising out of the recent re
volt, has developed dimensions which
threaten existence of the cabinet, par
ticularly the position of Premier
Kerensky. The newspapers repre
senting the left and right parties de
mand an explanation from the gov
ernment, while the Bolshevik! organs
opensly accuse the premier, in the
words of the Nabotchi Poot, of being
in a conspiracy with Korniloff "to
crush the Petrograd proletariat and
the Workmen's and Soldiers' dele
gates with the help of cavalry corps
sent against Petrograd."
The newspaper asks why, if the pub
lished documents are forged, no de
nial has been issued.
The Bolsheviki group in the bureau
of the Central Workmen's and Sol
diers' delegates has carried by an
overwhelming majority a resolution
demanding an explanation.
Rebellion Part of Scheme.
Petrograd newspapers publish col
umns of revelations and interviews
with the chief actors in the revolt,
and while much is inexplicable, it is
agreed that negotiations between Pre
mier Kerensky and General Korniloff
for the establishment of a strong gov
ernment at Petrograd preceded the
rebellion. The march of General
Korniloff's troops on the capital is
said to have "been part of a scheme.
The Russkia Volya says the revela
tions have made an overwhelming im
pression on the members of the gov
ernment who were hot initiated into
the plan and that these ministers are
awaiting Premier Kerensky's explana
Korniloff Breaks Agreement
General Savinkoff, ex-director of the
war department and later commander
of the Petrograd troops sent against
General Korniloff, declares that he
was dispatched to General Korniloff
by Premier Kerensky, who had re
solved to proclaim martial law, with
a mission to ask the Russian commander-in-chief
to send to Petrograd
a cavalry corps and "savage" division
under command of a general other
than General Krymoff, who was in
political disrepute. General Korniloff
broke the agreement by sending both
Krymoff and the "savage" division to
ward the capital.
Praise For Alexieff.
Premier Kerensky has issued an
order of the day praising the services
of General Alexieff in suppressing
the Korniloff revolt without blood
shed and for re-establishing order and
normal activity-in the headquarters
staff. The premier accepts General
Alexieffs resignation, but places the
general at the disposal of the govern
ment so as not to lose the aid of his
experience in the conduct of military
affairs. : - '

Wreck Mountain to Secure
Rich Copper Deposits
Churn drills and blasting crews
have started their work of making
a hole in the ground out of the Sac
ramento mountain, which frowns
down upon the Bisbee copper camo
from, its eminence in the Bisbee moun
tains. The wrecking of a mountain ta
obtain copper is one of the unique
mining engineering projects of this
district. Churn drills have drilled the
mountain full of holes and these are
being filled with high explosives and
exploded to loosen the rock for the
sriant steam shovels to scooo up and
load into cars. Thousands of tons of
overburden will be removed before
the mineral deposit is encountered.
The copper ore will then be removed
to the , crusher plant to be erected
near the mountain and crushed ore
concentrated and then smelted to ren
der the copper contained in the old,
red mountains. When the project is
completed the place where the Sacra
mento mountain now stands will be
a hole in the ground,, engineers say.
