THE BEE: OMAHA', SATUKDAY, AUGUST 14. 1920. WILSON CAN SEND ARMY TO POLAND IF HE DESIRES - Executive Still Is Possessed of Emergency Powers Granted Him During War, Except Roads' Control. Picture Which Resulted "v , . . , ... In Court Suit Over Dog Chleato Trlbant-Oniahe Dm Lcm4 Win. Washington, Aug. 13. Oflrcial confirmation reached Washington today that France has extended de facto recognition to General Wrangel a hvad of the South Rus sian government. Although officials would not com ment on the recognition of General Wrangel, the action of France is kncwfn to meet with general ap proval here. Certainly the United States could not consistently oppose recognition of General Wrangel by France because General Wrangel, at the head f the governjnnt in the ; Crimea seeks to bring about the i unity of Rrssia under a stable dem ocratic government That is just what the United States wishes to sec done as so forcibly expressed by President Wilson's note to the ftalian ambassador outlining the ?o rition of the United States in the Polish-Russian controversy Will Sound U. S.; Sentiment. In the minds of some here the ac tion of France is believed to have oeen taken with a view to sounding out the United States and with the hope that this government would join it in recognizing the Wrangel government. Ji is not believed here, however, that such recognition is forthcoming at this time. A little later, dependent upon tuture suc cess of the Wrangel forces, recogni tion by the United States might fol low. But it is apparent here, France in recognizing General Wrangel, has not stirred up any animosity in of ficial Washington. Quite the con trary is the case even though the Unite MsteS does not see it s way clear to extend similar recognition to the South Russian government at this time. Colby is Silent. The State dpartment was still silejst today on the question raised by the president's note pledging "all available means to support, Poland in maintaining its territorial in tegrity, as to how far the govern mem intends to go. Secretary Colby when asked yesterday to in terpret spccilically all available means" wis silent Me remained so today. The republican publicity associa tion has taken the president's note as a serious pronouncement. "If Secretary Colby means what he says, the United States is on the eve of another great war," says the association, headed by Jonathan , Bourne, jr., in ""a statement-. 'ilssued ' today. Reds' Arraignment Pleases. "The severe arraignment of the bolshevik government contained in the note of Secretary of State Colby ' addressed to the Italian ambassador will meet with the approval of all true Americans, who it may be remarked, have frequently been dis f sf; T' : Y -tlx ' - t vl- X Tfz' 4f rv K v "GENTLE MAN JACK." ruayed by evidences of a sympathetic teeling between the Wilson admin istration and the present rulers of Russia. Neither can any1 exception be taken to the expressed wish of Mr. Colby that an" armistice be tween Poland and Russia may bring a speedy cessation of hostilities. Hut the American people are going to take emphatic issue with the secretary in his attempt to pledge "all available means" to the main tenance of the territorial integrity of Poland. " "Let it be remembered that the president is possessed at this mo ment with every one f the emer gency powers ' granted to him for the waging of-war, with the excep tion of the -control of our trans portation systems. Congress has pressed a bill repealing practically all of the war legislation - but ' Mr. Wilson refused to sign it and it failed to become a law. Under the powers with which he is clothed Mr. Wilson ordered our soldiers to Archangel to fight the Reds, sent other military detachments into Poland on a similar mission, and transported several thousand men across the Pacific to guard against the bolsheviks in eastern Siberia. There is not a doubt in the world that he could, if he wished. ,send an army to Poland tomorrow."

''The treaty," he continued, "depended on two things: First, the league of nations and, second, the Franco-British al liance. The league of nations, to all intents and purposes, died long ago.
