Driving through the town behind

Cossacks stood guard before it. The
orrespondent was admitted, but as

as turned by a guard. A suave

Cossack appeared, the Cossack de-
landing the reason for the visit. He

A long parley ensued, during

welcome with his left hand, explain
ing that his right hand and leg had

surgeon had just removed fragments
af the bomb from the injured leg.
Referring to America, General
Semenoff was insistent in his
declaration that American troops
A'Ould be welcomed by Russians.
The landing of foreign troops on
Russian soil is naturally distaste

now to overthrow the bolshevists.
Asked if his differences with Ad

"Admiral Kolchak sent troops to
Irkutsk," he said, "so I cannot say
we are friends, but my Cossacks
will always work for the best m

Sends Greetings to America.
He concluded his talk with a re
quest that his greetings and an ex

Washington, Jan. 4. Existing
rate structures would continue if
railroads were tamed back to pri
vate control until changes were
made by orderly legal procedure,
even where states have specific rate
laws, in the opinion- of Director
General McAdoo, expressed today
at the resumption of the senate in
terstate commerce committee hear
ings on the railroad problem.
The director general also ex
pressed the opinion that railroads
operating privately could maintain
joint ticket offices without violating
anti-trust laws.
c a Trti rull .
Senator Kellogg of Minnesota
challenged this conclusion.
"Don't you know," the senator
inquired, "that when a committee of
railroad presidents tried to unify the
roads before the government took
hold, that the attorney general in
quired by what authority they were
acting and intimated that tthey were
violating the law?''
"Do you believe in the elimination
of all competition between rail
roads? Don't you think that the
competition of service has been a
principal factor in promoting good
railway service?"
Mr. McAdoo replied: "I don't
know yet whether it would be best to
eliminate all competition. That is
why I want a five-year test period.
I do not think competition is an
unalloyed blessing, but a longer
trial will show how much of it may
be necessary."
Turning to the question of a
threatened breakdown in morale
among officers and employes, which
he feared if the government con
trol should be limited to 21 months,
the director general said:
"It would be difficult with the im
pending presidential campaign to
keep the railroad question out of
politics. If the railroads are held
only 21 months, I fear the employes
themselves would become objects of
solicitation for one plan of cam
paign or one group of candidates.
The railroads of the United States
must be kept out of politics."
Red Guards in Minsk Are
