President Wilson Calls Upon Neutral Nations as Well
r s Allied Powers to Impress Upon Bolsheviki Hor
ror With Which Entire Civilized World
Regards Their Wanton Crimes.
By Associated Press.
Washington, Sept. 21. Horrified by the bloody reign
of terror in Russia, the United States today called upon all
allied and neutral nations to consider what -they may do to
impress upon the bolsheviki the aversion with which the civil
ized world regards their wanton crimes.
By direction of President Wilson, Secretary Lansing dis
patched - instructions to every American diplomatic repre
sentative in the foreign capitals.
The action aligns the United States with that of Great
Britain and France in declaring the bolsheviki responsible for
the murders, crime and excesses'
which have shocked the world, out
laws and public enemies.
Whatever action may be decided
upon by the nations, separately or in
concert, it is made clear will be quite
apart from the prosecution of the
war against TJermany.
Text of Instructions.
This is the text of the State de
partment's instructions to the Amer
ican diplomats:
"This government is in receipt of
information from reliable sources
revealing that the peaceable Russian
citizens of Moscow, Petrograd, and
other cities are suffering from an
openly avowed campaign of marked
terrorism and are subject to whole
sale"Vxecutions. Thousands of per
sons have been shot without even a
form of trial; ill-administered pris
ons are filled beyond capacity and
every night scores of, Russian citi
zens are recklessly put to death, and
irresponsible ' bands are venting
their brutal passions in the daily
massacre of untold innocents.
"In view of the earnest desire of
the people, of the United States to
befriend Ibe RiissUn. people and to
lend all possible assistance in their
struggle to reconstruct their - na
tion upon principles of democracy
and self-government, and acting,
therefore,: solely in the interesjt of
the . Russian -people themselves, 'this
government feels that it' cannot "be
silent or refrain from expressing its
horror at this state of terrorism.
Furthermore, it believes that in or
der to check the further increase of
the .indiscriminate slaughter of Rus
sian citizens all civilized nations
should register their abhorrence of
such barbarism.
"You will mauire. therefore.
whether the eovernment to which
you are accredited will be disposed
to take some immediate action which
is entirely devoid from the atmos
phere of belligerency and the con
duct of the war, to impress upon
perpetrators of these crimes the
aversion with which civilization re
gards their present wanton acts."
Relief Work Hindered.
The reported action of the bol
sheviki in effecting an alliance with
Germany for offense and defense is
an added cause for the step.
Official reports from Russia, many
coming through neutral countries.
have recited revolting acts that have
astounded and shocked the world.
The reign of terror has already
greatly hindered the efforts of the
United States - to alleviate an im
pending famine in Russia, as it is
impossible to furnish much needed
supplies to that part of the country
under bolshevik control without ac
tually feeding the German army and
Uhe German populace. It is con
ceded that there, is. enough food in
southeastern Russia and western Si
beria to feed all the Russianspeople
if a means of distribution could be
effected to keep the supplies from
falling into German hands.
The alliance between the bolshe
viki and Germany presents a dan
gerous situation to the allies in that
it may afford Germany an opportun
ity greatly to increase her waning
man power. . ,
Secretary Lansing today reiterated
that the efforts of American troops
at Vladivostok and Archangel were
solely to aid the Izecho-Slovaks to
leave Russia, for the western front

Fourth Liberty Loan
Honor Flag Hoisted
Above U. S. Treasury
Washington, Sepfc, 21. While a
hundred French veterans stood at
salute, the Fourth Liberty loan hon
or flag was raised today to the top
of the treasury where it wilL fly
throughout the loan campaign,
which starts next Saturday. The
banner is similar to the emblem of
the third loan except that it bears
fojir instead of three blue bars on
the interior field of white.
Referring to the fourth loan, Sec
retary McAdoo said:
"We are prepared to make any ex
penditure of blood that may be re
quired to do this great job for,civi
lization and humanity, and because
we are willing to shed our blood we
are willing to expend what is of
far less consequence, every dollar
of American treasure we now have
or that we may hope to have from
now until eternity.
, "We are resolved to liberate
France, Belgium and the other op
pressed peoples of the earth. We are
resolved that democracy and free
dom and civilization shall not per
ish from the face of the earth, and
that no German kaiser or any other
kind of despot shall ever again be
permitted to menace the peace of

The 'queen is thoroughly English
in her thought and action." 'She
cannot rest content under the dom
ination of Germany.
"You can tell the American peo
ple, whose sympathy and support
I value so highly," said the queen,
in a recent message forwarded here,
"that the desire of my soldiers to
renew .the combat is still strong.

The engineers are busily engaged
in constructing roads and in other
detail work, while the other troops

Troops on North Pressing Toward Canal Between St
Quentin and Cambria; French on South Moving
Forward Steadily; Allied Stroke in Macedonia '
Developing Successfully on Wide Front
By Associated Press.
Allied troops are progressing satisfactorily in breaking
down the defenses of St. Quentin. On the north the British
are fighting in the Hindenburg positions and pressing toward
the canal between St. Quentin and Cambrai, while on the
south the French are moving forward steadily.
For a stretch of more than 10 miles north ofSt. Quentin
the British now hold the dominating hills and the present
local action in the region west of Chatelet probably is for the
purpose of further improving the situation in anticipation of
a great assault against the Hindenburg line.
1 The main enemy defenses in tha
region between Cambrai and St
Quentin, both of which are threat
ened by the present British opera
tions, are based on the canal, high
way and railroad running north and
south on an average of about two
miles from Field Marshal Haigs
front line.
In Hindenburg Positions.
Toward Lecatelet the British are
pressing eastward on a front of
three miles and are within four
miles of the town, one of the im
portant German bases . on this
front. With the Australians already
in the Hindenburg positions, other
British forces are rapidly overrun

West of St. Quentin the French are"
within two miles of 'the outskirts,
while on the south they are forcing
the Germans to give up- important
villages and other positions.

Omaha gave more than $15,000 for

wholesale milinery houses, who
dropped everything and went to
work to make the little blus tokens.

at headquarters, tying the Belgian
colors on the new flowers.

Will Command Balloon
School at Fort Omaha
Lt. Co!. J. F. W. Wueft, new com
mandant at the Fort Omaha balloon
school, arrived in Omaha Friday
night accompanied by Mrs. Wueft.
He has been attending the artillery
school of fire at Fort Sill, following
a course of instruction in the bal
loon school here. He finished the
course in the Omaha school two
months ago.
Colonel Wueft is a graduate of
the West Point Military academy
and was assigned to an infantry
regiment before being selectedl to
take charge of the balloon school.
Affairs at the fort are being put' in
shape for a transfer and it is prob
able that the new commandant will
take charge of the. school today.
Lieut Colonel Hersey has been
ordered east and will undoubtedly
be ordered overseas to take charge
of balloon work of the American
Ivxpeditionary forces.
Mrs. Wueft, who accompanied her
husband and will make her home

Gendarmes Fire Upon
Rioters Looting Hotels
and Shops in Salzburg
Zurich, Switzerland, Sept. 21.
Serious food riots continue at
Salzburg, according to Munich
papers. Rioters attacked the gov
ernment palace and broke down
the doors, whereupon the gen
darmes fired, killing or wounding
several. t
, Hotels , have been lootecy food
shops raided and army stores x
plundered. - ., v .
since the beginning of the war. , A
further push eastwarcPby the Brifc-
ish from their flewly won height po

sides of the town. St.' Quentin is
an important outpost of Laon, per
haps the most important enemy base
in northern France. The French on
the south are 10 miles from Laon
and are hammering it with their big
guns. " ' ... , :-
Fires Started by Huns. ,
Southwest of Metz, where the
French and Americans" recently
cleared the St Mihiersalient, the
Germans have started further fires.
Soldiers and wagon trains - have
been moving northward and it is be
lieved the Germans are preparing for
a possible allied attack or a retire
ment on their own- initiative. Else
where on the western front there
has been no change in the situation
The allied stroke in central Mace
donia which opened with the ex-'
pulsion of the Bulgarians, from the
important Sokol position, , is de
veloping successfully' on. a wide
front. Further progress by the
Serbs towards the Vardar river and
the Uskub-Saloniki railroad paral
leling it probably will bring about
a readjustment of the Austro-Ger-man
and Bulgarian ' position!
throughout this whole theater.
May Outflank Bulgaria
With the Serbs within nine miles
of the railroad and the river, the
only artery of communication for
the enemy troops around Lake
Doiran, it seems within the range
of possibility that the railroad can
be cut. From Krnyovo Demirkapu,
on the railroad, the terrain is fav
orable and by pressing toward the
Vardar the Serbs can outflank
Prilep and Lake Doiran. Southeast
of Prilep the Serbs are in the foot
hills of the Drenska planina, a,
height position protecting the town
on the south.
Additional Bulgarian prisoners
have been taken by the Serbs, who
also have liberated ten more towns.
The British and Greeks continue
their pressure in the Doiran region,
but evidently their activity is mainly
for the purpose of keeping the en
emy occupied so that he cannot send
aid to the front further west.
It is reported , from Ukrainian
sources that the crown prince of
Roumania has fled from Jassy to
Odessa. The reason for his flight
is not disclosed. Recent German
reports have been to the effect that
an anti-German outbreak was in
progress or was imminent in Rou
mania with Queen Marie as one of
the principals behind the movement'
