wishes Independence day to become

the rights of nations and strengthened

selected as tne one aunng wnicn

NOW IN CONTROL
Safety of Vast Store of Military
Supplies From German Sei
zure Probably Assured,
Washington, July 3. Unexpected
development of strength by the
Czecho-Slovac bands which are mak
ing their way across the Siberian
plains from European Russia, has
arrested the attention of officials here
and formed the basis of a conference
among the diplomatic representative
of the entente powers.
Official reports today canfirmed
press despatches that the Czecho
Slovacs had taken over administra
tion of the port of Vladivostok after
overcoming the Bolsheviki. The
significanceof this event as seen by
officials, lies in the fact that there is
now a real nucleus in Siberia for the
gathering of the various elements i
which have revolted against Bolshe- ;
While it is by no means certain
that the entente allies or Americi
are disposed to take advantage of the
situation thus created to- begin a mili
tary campaign, it is regarded as . a
valuable asset in the solution of the
problem that through this unprompt
ed action the Czecho-Slovacs have
halted the spread of German con
trol to the eastern coast of Siberia
and further assured the safety from
German seizure of the vast store of
military supplies at Vladivostok.
Whether the Czecho-Slovacs can
take full advantage of the possession
of the Pacific port, commanding a -great
railroad penetrating the in
terior of Siberia and connecting with
the Russian system, would seem to
depend on their ability to find com
mon aspirations and gather their
strength under one leader. It also
is regarded a- essential that they ef-
feet a junction in purpose if not
physically with other elements now
in revolt in Siberia and European
Russia. Once this has been accom
plished it is believed that the entente
powers and America may be 'nduced
to consider the question as to whether
there has hot been established the
stable and representative government
in Siberia, and Russia as well, which
they may recognize and aid.
