iFIope of Red
Speech Before International
Communist Conference in
Moscow Shows Deep
Admits Soviet Defeats
Br S. D. WEYER.
New York, July 16. Penetrating
for the first time the fog of con
flicting reports and rumors as to the
mental attitude of the Russian
soviet chieftains their hopes and
disappointments the International
News Service is able to gire exclu
sively today the judgment of Leon
Trotxky himself as to what he
thinks has been and can be accom
plished by the doctrines upon which
the soviet republic is founded.
In a speech before the interna
tional -communist conference at
Mosccw, held in the latter part of
June, and which ha not been pub
lished, even partly, on this side of
the Atlantic, the bolshevist war min
ister,. Lenine's right-hand man, ad
mitted for -the first time that the
'bolshevist's goal is "not so near at
hand as it seemed to many of us
three or four years ago." He gave
what he believed to be the reasons
therefor, and added an expression of
confidence that the soviet would yet
jjftiin their aims. He showed at the
Came time that Moscow has not yet
given up its hope for a "world revo
The text of the speech, as wire-,
leised from Moscow to Berlin, was
received by the International News
Service in a circuitous route. It is
this speech, presumably, upon which
were based the many recent errone
ous cable dispatches to the effect
that Lenine and Trotzky had con
fesses) to collapse of their doctrine
and system. While the red war
minister's speech contains no such
admission, it does bear unmistakable
earmarks of deep disappointment, if
not partial disillusionment

Proletarian Pressure Urged. '
Trotrky speech, which throws
in illuminating light on the present
temner of the soviet leaders, follows:
"Your conference occur at a time
v- hitch is no lonarer as clear and well-
r'efined as was the period immediate
ly following the end of the war. Our
enemies assert that the proletariat
has proved its omnipotence and
capitalism its vitality since in the
fast two or three years capitalism
ha not been destroyed.
"The third Internationale is now
ronfronted with the question as to
whether the immediate future is to
be a period of the reconstruction and
re-establishment of capitalism or of
t growing proletarian pressure. This
question I shall attempt to answer
txhaustively before the plenary con
ference of the communist interna
j t ion ale.
4 "For the present I will only point
'tut these facts:
"The war has destroyed millions
rf lives and billions in economic
value. Capitalism proposes to re
establish the shaken equilibrium.
Agitation Will Spread to U. S.
"Ve cannot figure out with a pen
cil whether capitalism will succeed
"tt. this plan m the immediate future.
We can only say that if the lessons
pf the war. of the Russian revolu
tion and of the semi-revolution in
Germany and Austria, if the lessons
pf the last seven years have made
no impression upon the proletariat,
and if the proletariat -were to bow
its head willinelv under the old yoke.
then the bourgeoisie would succeed
in rehabilitating its former domina
tion, and the weight of its agitation
r.-ould be transferred to America,
Asia and Africa.
"The . diplomats and political
nts of the bourgeoisie are at
work trying to realize this plan.
"Our goal in the battle against
world capitalism is not as near at
hand as it seemed to us three or
four years ago.
The proletariat consist of many
diverse sections, all different in their
past and their political education.
Owing to the enormous change
wroueht bv the war most of the
ppressed and backward elements of
the proletariat are today the most
Impatient and most revolutionary,
while these sections that have long
taken par in the political evolution
ire more;' iutious and more reserved
and, in deed, are displaying a cer
tain degree of conservatism.
"It is for this reason that the
- feminist movement has such a great
- significance for the development of
A the revolutionary struggle. The army
- pf women wage workers has been
tremendously impressed during the
war and revolution.
This is particularly noticeable in
the far east In Japan, for instance,
the number ok women wage workers
is greater than that of men. That

55,000 Signatures Will '
Hold Up Laws.

been obtained to the referendum pe-
titions circulated by the league at a
cost of $3,000. -
These laws, which must Je held m,
abeyance until the voters decide
whether they are good, or not, at
the next election are: State-wide
registration of voters, amendment to

a clause in a banking bill which
gives the finance board power to
deny a license to a bank if it is
shown to the satisfaction of the
board that there is no public neces
sitv for such an institution.
The Nonpartisan leaguers ob
tained the aid of labor unions in
circulating the petitions because the

Sir James used this phrase in ex
plaining to interviewers his belief
that everything depended upon the
war the question was handled.
"The slightest indiscretion or mis
interpretation." he said, "may easily

on the conference between Eamonn
De Valera and Prime Minister
Lloyd George in London, the Irish
Bulletin today declared:
"If a peaceful settlement should

domination. They possess the will,
and by endurance, the power to
bring their fight eventuallv to suc
cess." Referring to the observance of the
truce between the Irish republicans
and the crown forces, the Bulletin
said, it proved "there is in the nation
that discipline and obedience to au
thority which is the essence of suc
cessful self-government The sur
prise expressed by English news

from the inability to understand the

Scrap on Oil Question
Amendment Thrown Out
Washington, July 16. After re
fusing by a vote of 122 to 106 to
eliminate the three-year dye em
bargo from the Fordney tariff bill,
the house jumped suddenly today
into a partisan fight over oil.
But it did not last long. Flaming
fiercely at first, the oil battle ended
abruptly on a republican motion to
adjourn until Monday. Although
opposed solidly by democrats who
forced a roll call, the result was the
same as yesterday, when the repub
licans, standing together, voted to
By breaking; in unexpectedly. Rep
resentative Garrett of Tennessee, in
charge of the minority, forced the
oil issue to the front His amend
ment to put petroleum and fuel oil
back on the free list was thrown out
on a point of order, amid the great
est confusion and uproar. For a
time the house did not seem able to
tell its legislative head from its
heels, a republican breaking in with
a wild shout to know "where are
Would Shut Off Debate.
As the Garrett free oil amendment
was knocked out, Representative
Treadway, republican, Massachu
setts, and a member of the ways and
means committee, which at the
eleventh hour imposed a duty of 35
cents a barrel on crude petroleum
and 25 cents a barrel on fuel oil,
stepped to the front with an amend
ment to wipe out the proposed tax.
Being a member of the committee,'
he was permitted to present the
amendment, but was stopped at the
close of a 5-minute talk by objection
of democrats, who announced they
were prepared to shut off debate
In the half hour flurry the oil duty
was violently denounced and warmly
defended. Representative Robert
son, republican of Oklahoma, brought
a round of applause from those sup
porting the oil tariff by attacking
''the New England policy of demand
ing protection with one hand and
free trade with the other."
Oil Leading Subject
It was apparent that oil took top
place in interest among the house
membership in the five contested
snbjects on which a separate vote is
to be permitted by special rule. Ev
erybody, it seemed, was anxious to
speak, and worn out by the all-day
wrangle over dyes, members were
ready to lay off -until Monday and
get their forces lined up for the real
The dye embargo stood up against
a combined attack by democrats and
republicans, described by those sup
porting it as a device to shackle the
vast dye interests of Germany. It was
denounced by Representtive Frear of
Wisconsin, a republican member of
the ways and means committee and
others, as a move to build up a dye
monopoly in this country.
As the vote was comparatively
close, some doubt was expressed as
to the final action by the house
proper next week, the vote today
being in the committee of the whole.
The schedule in addition to the em
bargo fixes a duty of 7 cents a pound
and 35 per cent ad valorem on im
ports of coal tar products frori
which dyes are obtained.
