With the Russian Army, Aug. 11.
First comes the cavalry, then
comes the red vanguard and then
comes the soviet administration.
Bolshevik commissars ride with
the cossacks into Polish towns.
Their first step is to organize meet

they make speeches. They tell the"
population they have no need to fear
Russian troops, because, though
ragged, dirty and fierce looking, they
are really friendly, harmless fellows.
They warn the people not to give or
sell alcoholic drinks to Russian sol
diers, under penalty of death, be
cause the Russia armies are bone
Their next act is to declare the
Polish "starost starost," or mayor,
dethroned and to replace the Polish
police with1 Russian soldiers. This
step, however, is superfluous, be
cause the Polish police at each town
flee with the Polish army. Then
town Soviets are formed just as in

Chicago, Aug. 11. Whfcn a hus-.

"for a breath of air," suspicions J

frs ShsiV Lambert was before
the court in the role of accused
when the ruling was made. She
was quite agitated.
"Every night my man went out
to get a smoke," she told the
court. "Then as soon as he left,
that Flossie Tomato, who left ner

tell me she was going for a walk.
She always wore her best 'clothes
to go walking in the dark."
Yesterday Mrs. Lambert took
advantage of an opportunity to
question Mrs. Tomato.. The ques

Mrs. Lambert's revolver crashed
through Mrs. Tomato's jaw.

not Soviets, but revolutionary com

intends to hold elections all over
Poland for the Russian central so

the irritcpendeht Polish republic.
Iwanitsky was loath to discuss the
Lmilitary intentions of the reds. Bu
lie said that Russia wants to occupy
all Poland and will be ready for
peace only when Poland is a soviet

Poland would keep her indepen

Russians Want Peace.
"The Russians are ordered to halt

through the resurrection of Russian
industry, that bolshevism is not a

astonished to- learn that the Russian
troops were kept informed of world
events and of the war situation daily
by wireless and that the commissar

Aid of America Is Report
Washington, Aug.. 11. Poland
will ask immediate aid from the
United State's in its fight agauist the
Russian soviet government. Count
Casitnir LubonuVski, the Polish min

The appeal to the State depart

based upon the assurances contained
in the American note to Ita'ly that
the United States will insist upon
maintenance of the political inde
pendence and territorial integrity of
Poland. ; 4
The' aid rnjuestod. n was said,
probably will be confined to a re
quest for. an extension of credits
byfhe United States for the pur
chase by Poland of surplus war
stocks. Permission to purchase
200.000 army uniforms and 200,000

phoned The Associated " Press that
Ponzi admitted that he was .the
Charles Ponsi formerly of Mon

Montreal 13 years ago. Attention
was called also to the'records of the
St. Vincent-de Paul penitentiary
there, which were 'said to show that
a man known as Charles Ponsi had
served a brief term. Ponzi denied
any knowledge concerning the Mon

self to newspapermen.
His house telephone thereafter
was answered by a man whoclaimed
to represent Ponzi and who said
that something might be given out

. A casual remark by Ponzi is said
to have given the authorities the
first clue to his past. This related
to the records in the penitentiary at
Montreal. Attorney General Alien
communicated with the pplice there
and a week ago received a copy of
