Berlin Paper Bitterly Attacks
"Chinese Apathy" of Lead
ers in Permitting Inva
sion; Asks of Future.
Berlin, Jan. 3. (By Associated
Press.) A protest against the "ab
ject surrender to the Poles," which
is advocated by Herr Ernst, of the
Prussian ministry, is printed by the
Zeitung Am Mittag today. Tht
minister, who has just returned from
the border, declares that while the
invasion by the Poles could have
been prevented a fortnight ago, the
situation is now hopeless and that
Germany could not regain the ter
ritory occupied by the Poles even
with the division ordered to the
district a division, he declared,
which it now was impossible to as
semble. The Zeitung Am Mittag declares
that these statements cannot be true
and it asks why the government
has done nothing in the matter. It
characterizes the v attitude of the
government as "Chinese apathy."
Fears Bolshevists.
The Zeitung Am Mittag also ex
presses disquiet over the evacua
tion of Riga by the Germans and
the danger of a bolshevik invasion
of Germany.
The government members are In
session today and are reported to
be cansidering what action to take
for the protection of German cities
from the Poles.
Munich newspapers of this morn
ing's date received here, publish re
ports of shooting in the streets of
that city New Year's eve. Nine
persons are declared to have been
wounded. The accounts state that
the rioters used hand grenades
against the police and threw similar
missiles at the front of the Catholic
society building.
The newspapers declare that great
numbers of weapons are in the pos
session of the lawless element.
Petrograd People Are
Threatened by Famine
Under Bolshevik Rule
London, Jan. 3. (British Wireless
Service). Dissatisfaction and des
peration in Petrograd, caused by the
almost complete disappearance of
the necessaries of life and the sys
tem of gvernment in effect under
bolshevik rule, are so widespread
that the populace is on the verge of
an outbreak, according to a Danish
business man who has returned from
"Conditions in Petrograd are ex-1
ceedingly depressing," he says. "Ex
cept for the red guard and its'
agents, the whole population is in
direst need. Petrograd . is face to
face with complete starvation. The
prices of ordinary articles of food
have risen enormously and it is dif
ficult to buy anything, even at these
"All the ibig establishments and
the factories have been nationalized
and are either closed or in half work
ing order. The banks have been na
tionalized and money circulation has
therefore stopped. A recent decree
prohibits the carrying of parcels in
the streets without special permis
sion from the Red Guards agents
and, consequently, one is held up
when one tries to go out shopping.
No fuel is to be had.
"The present system of govern
ment is creating general stagnation
and the misery in which the majori
ty of the populace is living has fost
ered dissatisfaction and desperation,
which are gradually spreading and
which need only a spark to break
out into flames. On all sides it is
hoped that the entente will be able
to find means to supply Petrograd
and save the population from starva
tion. During the day it is compara
tively quiet in the streets, but after
dark no one who does not belong
to the ranks of the red army dares
to go out."
