who has been appointed Bolsheviki

remain in London pending the receipt
of his instructions. His photograph
is printed prominently in the news

He is described as bpino- hrnarl minH.

English institutions and England,
where he has lived for a decade.
M. Litvinoff 's wife is an FnollcJi
woman and he is an old friend and
associate of LeViinc. He is declared
to be ,a whole-hearted supporter of

Dr. Connolly Sells Wyoming Farm
For $380,000; Cost Him $2,000
Dr. J. P. Connolly, member of the Board of "Public Recreation and
former county commissioner, told members of the Omaha-Wyoming Oil
company, at a meeting in R. E. Sunderland's office, that he received
1380,000 for half of a 160-acre farm in Wyoming for which he paid $2,000
three years ago.
, His farm is located in the oil region. He stated that he received pay
ment in full and still Jias 80 acres left. The deal was closed last week.
"I traded an Omalja house and lot worth $2,000 for the Wyoming
farm, explained the doctor when he confirmed what he said at the meet
ing as to the fortune received for the 80 acres.
H " ' 4
Chronicle he speaks as if he is re
solved to take it.
"My task as ambassador," he says,
"will be to disseminate the truth about
Russia and to dissipate misunder
standing and misinterpretation of the
motives, character and purpose of the
workmen's and soldiers' government.
It is grossly mischievous to represent
the Bolsheviki as pro-German, anti
ally or as mere pacifists. They op-i
pose replacing Prussian militarism by
Russian, French or English militarism."
M. Litvinoff declared his emphatic
belief that by the present negotiations
and propaganda among the "German
soldiers in the east Trotzky and Le-
nine are contributing to the downfall
of kaiserism more effectually than the
allies fighting m the west. He con
cludes: "I am sanguine enough to imagine
that the Russian and German armies
on the eastern front some day will
inarch together against the common
foe of the world's proletariat in Ger
