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
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
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."

High Priestess of Cult Foretold
Wedding of Mrs. Gait
To President.
Washington. Aug. 13. Eminent
Washington women Have taken up
the study of astrology and now the
craze -or horoscopes has dis
possessen the ouija board.
One Jiigh priestess of this cult is
Madam Marcia, ;ho first attained
wide reputation by predicting that
Mr Wiwon would preside as th
first lady cf the land.
Ihe stars toretold this six years
before . the present Mrs. Wilson
came, to the White House," said
Madam Marcia. When. I told then
Mrs. Gait that she would marry a
president she exclaimed: 'If I am
ever the first ladv of the land, I'll
make you the official fortune teller
and let you pitch your tent in the
White House grounds. She has not
communicated w:th-me since . the
prophecy 'vas fulfilled.
"I have this year predicted an
other occupanr of the White House
and this meeting came about in the
most unusual way. 1 make it a rule
not to see mote than one person at
a time.
' Last February five ladies, three
of them senators' wives, called and
asked if any of them was destined to
occupy the White House.
1 looked at each questioner
Mrs. Poindexter. Mrs. butherland
and Mrs. Harding--and selected the
latter as the fortunate one. I had
never, seen Mrs. Harding before.
Just before the convention Mrs
Harding called again, bhe was
dressed in summer clothes and I did
not know her. She brought in the
date and birthplaee data which I
require for casting astrological
charts. She had not brought her
own data; I at once detected ft, anl
aid: 'Madam, the party whose
data, appears here is not your own;
it is that of a man, and he will be
president of the United States."'
Mrs. Harding was questioned
about the prophecy during ,her last
visit to Washington.
'It is true, we did make this visit
in a -spirit of curosity and unbelief.
Madame." she said, "had not seen
me before and in order that I should
not give her a clue I even remained
silent when she gave me the initials
of my husband s name.
