rlaclio Intercepted by Soviet
! Carries Information That

Moscow, April 8. (Via Reval and
London, April 10.) It was' wire
!esed from Akhost to Moscow that
a Japanese telegram from Harbin,
China, intercepted by the soviet,
stated Japan had declared war on
soviet Russia. The radio added the
Japanese had seized Habarovsk and
Nikolaevsk on the Amur and Nik-
olsk on the line of the Usuri rail
way. The forcipn office refused to com
ment officially on the telegram,- de
claring the news was from too un
; official a source.
A telegram received from Vladi
vostok, however, stated the Japanese
military commander there had or
dered all Japanese civilians to be
ready to evacuate to Japan.
The report of warvas considered
doubtful here. The Russian leaders
unofficially point out the probability
that this move is organized by the
Japanese military party to prevent
evacuation of Siberia by the Japa
nese troops. They express hope
that the Amreican government will
not permit the Japanese to have a
free hand in Siberia.
If the Japanese have declared war
they say it is in all probability the
result of an agreement on the part
of the reactionary elements of Eng
land and America to allow Japan a
free hand in Siberia in return for
overthrowing the soviet govern
ment There is little doubt that the op
erations, which began April 5, have
become extensive along the line of
the Usuri railway with serious con
sequences. War Is possible, if the
military party succeeds in convinc.

This is due to the fact that John

Roosevelt who admired Johnson,

WILL CHECK OVER
A. Hene, Engaged by the City,
Will Also Determine Im
provements Made by Com
pany Since May, 1918.
A Hene, engineer with -the Drake
Realty Construction Co., has been
engaged by the city to check im
provements and extensions made by
the gas company since May 18, 1918,
the date on which the appraised val
uation of $4,500,000 was based.
Mr. Hene was in the service of the
city when an inventory and physical
valuation of the plant was made for
presentation to the court of con
demnation. The information which
he will now obtain for the city will
be used in determining the amount
the city will be required to pay above
the appraised valuation as fixed by
the court of condemnation, y
The gas company recently advised
the city council that their books on
February 29, 1920, showed that the
value of improvements since May,
1918; together with supplies and ma
trials on hand, was $302,000.
The Metropolitan Water board
will be asked to assign a man to
accompany Mr. Hene in his check.
When this check shall have been
completed, Mayor Smith will request
the court of condemnation to recon
vene for a day to authorize a sup
plemental appraisal to cover recent
improvements and supplies on hand.

contest. They have active organiza
tions in Omaha.
The democratic gubernatorial sit
uation offers ample material for a
tive-reel political scenario. Ralph
Clark and John H. Morchead, rival
candidates, live in the same county,
the latter being former governor,
whose filing was sustained by the
supreme court a week ago. Mr.
Clark issued a week-end statement
in which he said he was surprised
when his neighbor and fellow demo
crat entered the race. Clark is be
ing supported y . the Hitchcock
Mullen organization, and the "dry"
democrats of Douglas cminty aver
they will support George Jackson
of Nelson. Then there are W. J.
Taylor of Merna and G. L. Shum
way of Scottsbluffs for the demo
crats to reckon with.
Growth of Pershing.
The name of W. J. Bryan has
been mentioned in connection with
the democratic campaign in Omaha
and Nebraska. Mr. Bryan is a can
didate for delegate-at-large to the
San Francisco convention and he is
promoting a delegation in opposir
tion to the Hitchcock-Mullen dele
gation. When Mr. Bryan was in
Omaha two weeks ago he an
nounced that he would vote for
Robert Ross of Lexington, Neb., for
the presidential choice, and now
some Nebraska democrats are
charging that Mr. Bryan is leaning
toward Senator Robert L. Owen of
Oklahoma in place of Robert Ross.
The Bryan-Hitchcock tight in Ne
braska is one of the outstanding
features of the democratic cam
Senator Hitchcock will atrive in
Omaha Monday morning from
Washington and will begin his
speaking campaign in the evening at
Columbus, finishing in the auditor
ium here next Saturday evening.
The political eyes of'the country
are being focused on the republican
presidential situation in Nebraska.
The continued growth of Fcrshing
sentiment is admitted by members of
both of the big political parties.
Senator Hiram Johnson of Califor
nit will arrive in Omaha early Mon
day, according to a telegram from
his secretary received yesterday ly
Thomas Lynch. A reception com
mittee will meet him at the station.
He will deliver a non-political sp
to members of the Ad Selling league
at the Motel l ontencile at p 111
and address a mass meeting at the
auditorium at 8. He will leave 1 ues-
day morning for Lincoln.
