City Put Under Protectorate
Pending Adjustment of Dis
putes; U. S. Soldiers
Patrol Streets.
Archangel, Wednesday, Sept. 11.
Colonel Tchaplin, leader of the re
cent attempt to overturn the provi
sional government headed by M.
Tschaikovsky in northwestern Rus
sia, has resigned his post as com
mander of the Russian forces and
has been succeeded by Colonel Ivan
off. The labor disputes in Archangel
are being; rapidly settled. American
soldiers who had been operating the
street car system have been trans
ferred to other duties.
As a result of an attempt to over
throw the Tschaikovsky govern
ment the allied displomatic and mili
tary chiefs " today assumed tempo
rary direction and established a p;o
tectorate in the region in the rear of
the allied front pending the adjust
ment of the political disputes. This
decision followed the arrest of M.
Tschaikovsky and all but two mem
bers of his government early Thurs
day by a party of conservative of
ficers headed by Colonel Tchaplin,
the Russian army commander, who
sought to establish a new regime.
M. Tschaikovsky and his minis
ters were taken on board a ship en
route to the Solovetsk monastery,
from where they were returned by
order of the allied ambassadors with
the approval of Consul General
Poole. Meanwhile the allied forces,
including the American troops, are
patrolling the city, assuring tran
quility and a just settlement .of all
Allied Proclamation.
' Following is the text of the pro
clamation, which is signed by the
American, French, British and Ital
ian ambassadors and Consul Gen-
:Tothe people of the northern
region: The undersigned represen
tatives of the allied nations and the of their forces
seeing the confusion created in the
mind! of the people by proclama
tions of leaders of the opposing
"actions, have decided to proh.b,
the functioning for the present of
the authors of the aforesaid procla-
"This course has been adopted In
order to prevent civil strife in the
rear of our combined armies, which
are advancing against a common
foe and to avoid the almost equally
deplorable calamity threatening the
northern region with a widespread
famine for the relief of, which we
are bring supplies from our coun
try We have no intention or de
sire to force upon the northern re
gion any kind of government or
any officials not the choice of the
maiority of the people.
"Until the arrested ministers, who
are now on their way back under
the protection of the allies, return
to Archangel and until popular opin
ion can show who should continue
to exercise the power in a consti
tuted government we will assure
the continuation of public service,
the absolute maintenance of order,
and will assure that the sovereign
rights of every one will be respect
e and observed and that the daily
life of the community win nm uc
interrupted. Consequently, subject
to pur approval the assistant heads
of the ministerics and chief of bu-r-aus
will continue to perform their
duties. We trust that all ood citi
zens will co-operate in the further
ing of this well-meaning plan. The
necessity for which should appeal
to every patriotic Russian who
wants national independence and a
regime of democratic liberty."
Enjoin New Government.
The allied ambassadors had ab
solutely no desire to interfere in in
ternal affairs, but they considered
that the Tchaplin party's attempt to
establish by stealth and force to be
incompatible with the principles for
which the allies are fighting. As
soon as he learned Thursday morn
ing of the coup d'etat, Americtn
Ambassador Francis called a con
ference of the diplomats and Consul-General
Pool with the result that
the new government was prohibited
from functioning and the Tschai
kovsky ministers were ordered im
mediately returned pending an ad
justment and the proclamation pre
pared. Meanwhile, however, pro
clamations by Tchaplin and Ivanoff
and Dedusenko. who were not ar
rested, and the Tschaikovsky min
isters appeared in the streets.
These several proclamations so
confused the people that a second
allied decision became necessary.
Working men and operatives before
the allied decision became known
called strikes, which are being ad
justed. The Tchaplin group con
tends that it was not fairly repre
sented in the government. The
proclamation by Dedusenko charged
that Tchaplin was attempting to
restore a monarchy headed by
Grand Duke Michael Alexandro
vitch, brother of the late emperor,
who, they contend, is hiding in
Archangel. Of this there is no
Archangel is generally tranquil
and the people are watching the
American and other guards, appar
ently satisfied with the fairness of
the allies.
An Associated Press dispatch
from Archangel September 22 said
that the Tschaikovsky provisional
government had been reseated after
a conference between the entente
allied diplomatic apd military chiefs
and that it would continue to direct
the affairs in the region of the north
with the advice of the allies.

Peggy Meets a Pacifist.
((fOOl Coo! I'm hungry.
I Throw me some crumbs!"
Peggy looked up from
the newspaper she was reading. On
the porch railing before her was j
perched a fat Pigeon. j
"We haven't any crumbs. We be-1
long to the patriotic food savers,"!
she answered.
"What's that a new excuse for
being stingy?" The Pigeon's saucy
answer caused Peggy's eyes to
Hash with indignation.
"Stingy, indeed!" she retorted.
"We are generous to our soldiers
and to our allies when we guard
every bit of food, so that they will
have all the more."
"But what are we Tigeons going
to do if you don't teed us?"
Peggy thought over that ancle of
! the matter for a moment. '1 hen,
like a true Yankee, she answered by
j asking another question.
Why don t you feed yourselves?
il,T 'II 1 . f .

selves. We pick up the crumbs that
people throw to us."
"Nonsense," tartly replied Peggy,
who was annoyed i . the Pigedn's
pufted-up ways. "I mean, why
aren't you se!f-sup; . ;t;? Why
don't you earn your r. . by eating
food-destroying insec'.s or picking,
up, weed seeds?"
"The idea. Who ever heard of
such a thing?" The Pigeon drew
itself up haughtily and duffed out
its feathers.
' Homer and Carrie Pigeon find
plenty to eat and are serving the
country by gobbling up crop-ruining
pests on Farmer Dalton's farm,"
answered Peggy, warmly.
"Oh, they are common country
Pigeons," sneered the Pigeon.
"They work for a living."
"And who are you that you are
above work?" demanded Peggy
wheat. But that was before the
war. Now we have to use our food
for useful purposes. We can't
throw any of it away just for fun
or to feed lazy ornaments." She
gave Airy Pouter just as disdainful
a look as he had given her. "If
you were patriotic you'd help win
the war by helping in the food rais
ing, as the other Birds are ding"
"I don't like war. I'm a pacifist."
"Humph," said Peggy, disgusted
ly. "Neither do I like war, and
neither does any real American, but
we don't like to be robbed and in
sulted and murdered. We're fight
ing because we love peace enough
to fisht for it. And you don't love
peace even enough to do your share
in saving food. You're a fine pa
cifist!" "You are a very disagreeable per
son, and I'll tell all of the tribe
in our steeple to have nothing to
do with you, cried Airy Pouter, as
he fluttered stiffly away before she
could say another word.
Peggy was much annoyed by Airy
Pouter's attitude. She was so thor
oughly loyal herself that she didn't
have much patience with either food
slackers or work slackers.
"Coo, coo!" came another Pigeon
call, and Peggy looked up prepared
for further argument. But her frown
quickly turned into a smile. On the
porch railing were Homer and Car
rie Pigeon, and between them, seated
in a little chair which was harnessed
to them, was Billy Belgium shrunk
to the size of a doll.
"Hello, Trincess Peggy," cried
Billy Belgium. "We're on war work.
Do you want to come along?"
"Sure I do," answered Peggy.
"We are raising an army of
Pigeons to carry messages'for the
Americans in France. We've recruit
