London,' Nov. 30. Th$ government
of Nikolai Lenine has fallen, accord

Daily Chronicle dated Wednesday. It
has been succeeded by a coalition cab

however, the Bolsheviki are repre
A Russian communication received
here by wireless announces a union
between the All-Russian central exec

workmen's soldiers' delegates with
the executive committee elected by
the All-Russian peasants' congress.
At a, united meeting of these bodies
and fcilie Fetrograd council of work
men s and soldiers delegates a unani

laws concerning land and peace and
to the law resting control in the
hands of the workmen.
Peace Proposals Affect Bourse.
Amsterdam, Nov. 30. The feeling
on: the bourse here that the Russo
German negotiations portend a short
ening of the war has caused a rush
of buying orders, although there are
warning voices that a peace with Rus
sia does not necessarily mean peace
in Europe.. Roumanian oil stocks
rose sharply yesterday and closed at
their highest mark for some time,
stood at a little over 33 Dutch cents,
now are nearly 35.
JS MOVEFOR PEACE
Tory Leader Throws England
Into Ferment by Letter Call
ing on Allies to Make Move
for End of War.
London, Nov. 30. The strongest
impetus to a renewal of the heated
discussions of the rival schools on the
war policy of the allies was provoked
yesterday from a most unexpected
quarter by publication of a long letter
from the ' Marquis of Lansdowne,
strongly pleading for a revision of -the
allies war aims and an attempt to ob
tain peace before "the prolongation
it war leads to the ruin f the civ
OLD TORY MEMBER.
ine Marquis ot Lansdowne is a
typical representative of the old tory
party, tie was a member otAs
quith's coalition administration and
was secretary for foreign affairs in
Lord Salisbury's and Mr. Balfour's
ministries. He was viceroy of India
and governor-general of Canada. He
was the last public man to be sus
pected of pacifist tendencies.
His letter gives formal adhesion to
President Wilson's policy of a league
of nations and he asks:
"What will be the value of the
hlessings of oeace to nations so ex
hausted that they can scarcely stretch
forth a hand to grasp them?"
Lord Lansdowne contends that ail
immense stimulus probably would be
given to the peace party in Germany
if it were understood:
"First, that the annihilation of Gerr
m&ay as a great power was not de
sii'd; second, that we do not seek to
impose upon the German people a
form of government against their
choice; third, that, except aS a legiti
mate war measure, we do not desire
to deny Germany her place aroong
the great commercial countries;
fourth, that we are prepared after the
war, in concert with other powers, to
examine the international problems
connected with the freedom of the
seas; fifth, that we are prepared to
enter into an international pact under
which ample opportunities would be
afforded for the settlement of interna
tional disputes by peaceful means."
Lansdowne's long and intimate
connection with foreign affairs and
diplomacy lends unusual authority to
such a pronouncement at the moment
of the meeting of the inter-allied con
fcffuce at Pari3 and because of
Clemenceau's recent t declaration
against a league of nations, including
Germany. Already ..there are indica
tions of embitteed controversy over
It is announced that the" govern
ment had no previous knowledge of
the letter and the strongest stipport
ers of the government in the eve
ning press suggest that the letter is
very unwelcome to the government.
The Evening-News demurs agaiasl
Lansdowne's suggestions on tlfie
ground that Germany's word cannot
be trusted in any matter and that an
attempt, to argue with it would be
a sheer waste .of tjme.
The Asquith papers hail the letter
as one of the most remarkable docu
ments that the war has produced, the
Star greeting the letter as the most
formidable attack yet made on the

M. P. Officials to Decide
Whether to Move Offices
Missouri Pacific' officials are in
Omaha for the purpose of determin
ing whether or not the freight and
passenger offices will be moved out
of the Ware block, Fifteenth and
Farnam streets, prior to the expira
tion of the lease, two years hence.
The electric light company has
bought the Ware block and officials
are anxious to get immediate posses
sion in order to make extensive
changes prior to moving in. These
cannot be made so long as the first
floor is occupied by the railroad. It
is safd that the electric light company
representatives have made overtures
looking to paying the railroad com
pany a bonus if it moves out and at
once gTves possession.
Missouri Pacific officials who are
here handling the deal for the com
pany are "V. H. Murphy, general
niLiiifrer, anil H. M. Adams, vice

Indications Case Will Not Be
Given to Jury Before Mid
die of the Coming
' Mineola, N. Y, Nov. 30. The trial
of Mrs. Blanca De Saulles for the1
murder of her divorced husband.
John De, Saulles,. was resumed in the
supreme court today with indications
that the case would not be given to
the jury before Wednesday. .
Attorney Uterhart, announcing the
completion of the hypothetical ques
tion to be submitted on behalf of the
defense, made known the phrasing of
the beginning and concluding parts of
the 15,000-w?fd interrogation just be
fore the opening of court this morn
ing. Mrs. De Saulles seemed wearied by
the long court proceedings, despite
the holiday recess, when she appeared
in court. She seemed more dejefced
than at any time since the beginning
of the trial and sat with a down
cast sare, apparently without taking
heed of what was going on about her.
After reading of the hypothetical
question had continued 30 minutes
"Juror No. 4" fell asleep. He was
awakened by the juror seated .on his
left, Several others in the jury box
did not seem to-be much interested in
the lengthy interrogation. Two or
three, with closed eyes, nodded in
their " chairs, while others looked
about the court, room or through the
windows into the . countryside
Because District Attorney Charles
R. Weeks did not approve of the
framing of the hypothetical question
put by Mrs. De Saulles' attorneys,
he served notice that he would pre
pare one to his own likingy which he
will submit to alienists called on be
half of the state. V ' v ,
This was expected to lengthen the
taking of testimony considerably and
it is believed the examination of ex
pert witnesses will not be ended be
fore Monday or Tuesday. .
Before the defense rested its case,
Attorney Uterhart stated that Mrs.
Blanca Errazuriz, Mrs. De Saulles'
mother, was too ill to testify. ; .'
The defense rested its case at 2:30
o'clock this afternoon.
AND AIR FLEET
ARRIVE IN FRANCE
(Br Assoclatrd Preu.)
American engineers played a large
part in the preparations leading up
to the successful British blow toward
Cambrai last week. These1 are the
first American troops to take part in
operations on the British front.
. National Guardsmen from every
state in the union and the vanguard
of the American air fleet have arrived
behind the front in France. Many of
the 'former guardsmen already are
undergoing training within sound of
theguns at the front. Meanwhile
American aviators are training active

Germany is ready to discuss peace
with Russia, if envoys with full pow

present efforts of the Bolsheviki-
would bring peace and declared that
the central powers were not respon

and held out as a warning to others,
"the Rloriousadvance" into Italy.
Conditions in Russia apparently
remain greatly unsettled. It. is re
