KOLCHAK TO AVOID PRO-GERMA- N POLICY Foreign Minister Soukino De- nies Desire to Get Aid From Berlin. IS FAITHFUL TO ALLIES Looking to America for Materials and Money. OMSK, Monday, Oct. 20 (delayed). M. Souklne, actlnR Minister of Foreign Af- fairs In tho All - llusslan Government, discussing the problem resulting from the activities of Gen. von der Goltz nnd his German troops In the Baltlo provinces, imphatlcally denied that there was any ficslro on the part of his Government to direct Its policy In any way along lines or to use aid from that Quarter, but he said he believed tho Allies should carefully direct the \s of tne Germans Into channels uhlcn would further the mutual Interests of tl.e Russians and the Allies. 'If appears to us that Germany the present as an opportune mo- ment to exert a decisive Influence In the adjustment of Russian affairs. It would to unfortunato if her activities should e to the support of the Bolshevikl. Luring the whole llusslan revolution the Germans have assisted alternately the l!us!an reactionaries and the Bolshevikl. Now that tho European war Is finished ih !.iin,l Governments should formulate a policy of mutual cooperation with Ger- - many, wnicn wouia ievc um fliuta control, but at tho same time would tend to suppress Bolshevism. Fnltbfnl to Allies. There hns been no change In the .m.iiiv nf this Government toward the Allies, and the direction of our policy has not altered In the slightest measure, but I may say that the feeling of tho Government and of the people at the mo- ment Is one of deep apprehension as to the Dosslblo outcomo of tho Vpn der nntti nffalr. accompanied by an expects lion of an Increase in the help extended by the Allies to the Govern ment. Th Government is look laj anxiously to tho United States for ir?pplles of army clothing, raw mate- rials, &c, to make up for British as- sistance, suspended to permit the British Government to send Instead supplies to Gen. Denlklne. The British representat- ives, according tb M. Souklne, led the Government to believe that tho United Stales Government would ateD Into the breach. Minister Soukino said 'the cessation by the British of sending further supples to Siberia, due to their commitment to Gen. Penikine, had aroused new anxiety con- cerning the measure of assistance to be expected from America. Looking to America. 'The attitude of America,\ said Souklne, \has been nnd continues to be extremely sympathetic The promises extended as far back as June, however, hae not yet been fully realized. \Our Government up to the present hi only been favored In the matter of Its purchases in the United States, but direct help by a financial credit, similar to those which France and England have been Riven has not been allotted. Tho need for winter uniforms and clothing for our troops cannot be exaggerated, nor can the economic needs of the' populat- ion. Assistance Is also urgently re- quired to Improve our currency situat- ion.\ According to a Government statement In the British Parliament yesterday, Great Britain Is no longer furnishing funds or supplies to Admiral Kolchak and does not contemplate supplying Gen. Denlklne Indefinitely. This state ment was Interpreted, in view of the un expectedly large deficit estimated for the Dresent vear. as an Intimation or a rur ther modification of the British policy of assisting the forces In Ilussa. DENIKINE MAY TRY TO EXTEND HIS LINES News of YudenilcK's Success Proves Stimulating. Bv the Attociated Pre): Constantinople. Oct. 20 (delayed). News of the campaign for Petrograd has stimulated the efforts of Gen. Denlklne on his more westerly front and possibly may lead to a transfer of his headquar ters from the Sea of Asov to Kharkov, :00 miles south of Orel, and to attempts to effect a Junction with the Poles and to clear out the Bolshevik bands west of Kiev by a movement from the south. Gen. Denlklne's main line at this date ranees looselv from Kiev to Kharkov and alone the Don to Tsarltzyn, with his actions at Orel and elsewhere compris ing c.ivalrv raids for tho most part. The Bolshevikl are maintaining the Orenburg railway to Afshanlstan. For several weeks Gen. Denlklne has confined himself to exerting pressure on the Bolshevikl at various points. They are reported very short of munitions, and it Is claimed here that Gen. Denlklne Is uflering from the same trouble. The American ship Black Arrow, however. Is about to arrive at Novo UossysK wun fc cargo of arms, which will help out the uuatlon for the ik leaaer. Junt now the rear'of Gen. Denlklne's line is nearly everywhere disturbed by the altitude of often Indifferent or un friendly populations, replete with propa canda that he seeks to reestablish mon archlsm as opposed to the aspirations of tne Ukraine and other nations. It for this reason that Gen. Petlura, th Vkranlan leader. Is opposing him. with the aid, It is declared, of Rumanians who desire to secure Bessarabia for their country. The American vessel Black Arrow, mentioned in the above despatch as about to arrive at Novo Hossysk, on the Black la owned by tho United States Shipping Board but Is managed and op- erated by tha American Line. Nothing ! known hero regarding the cargo of the Black Arrow, The Hchooner cleared from New York for the Mediterranean and passed Gibraltar September 25.

Finland has been recognized bv mac tlcally every country in Europe and the united states; and her accredited dip lomatio representatives nave been re- ceived in the capitals. Diplomats to- day explained the Finnish situation as follows: Finland having overthrown Bolshev ism at homo and having established sound representative government with a moderate liberal president, Dr. K.

Cecil Harmsworth, Under-Secretar- y for Foreign Affairs, replying to Josiah Wedgwood in tho House of Commons to-da- y, said that Co- nstants NabokolT, who repre- sented Russia at London, had received from Great Britain be- tween March, 1917, and March, 1919, when payment ceased, more, than $900,000,000.

American diplomats here y were of the opinion that tho fear of the Flnna was not well founded nnd it was pointed out that reports from govern ment sources in Scandinavia in no way Indicated that the Kolchak regime held Imperialistic vlewa BULLITT STATEMENT AGAIN CALLED FALSE Bonar Law Reiterates Lloyd George's Repudiation. London, Oct. 28. In the House of Commons y Mr. Bonar Law, tho Government leader, replied to a ques- tion by Josiah Wedgwood, the Liberal member, in regard to statements by William C. Bullitt, formerly member of the American Peace Mission, on his trip to Russia. Mr. Bonar Law said that Prime Minister Lloyd George had not personally read the report of tho proceedings, but that this had been ex- amined for him. The Prime Minister, he said, adhered to his statement that In effect the state ment of Mr. Bullitt was a tissue of falsehoods.

While on the one hand we do not think that its power will further de- crease, on the other hand we do not think that it will ever be permanently restored to its former value. Correspondingly, it does not appear to us that either prices or wages will further generally increase. We believe that the wave has crested and broken, and that what we are now feeling and shall continue to feel for some time will be the effects of the wave. What the Harriman National Bank and all forward-lookin- g men are trying to provide against are the evils of the inevit- able deflation which will result when production over- takes and passes consumption, with the consequent necessary liquidation of goods and labor. If deflation could be regulated and graduated its evils could be avoided. This, .however, does not seem humanly pos- sible, but the severity and duration of any depression will be modified by the adequacy of preparation. The Harriman National Bank requires no apology from its borrowing customers for larger accommoda- tion in the matter of loans or discounts than they have had in previous years. We know that it takes more money to do business to-da- y than before. We do re- quire, however, that our customers shall show us that they are doing a corresponding volume of business, not overstocking and not over extending credits, for under such conditions we are confident that as defla- tion approaches they will be tfully prepared. We invite our customers to call and discuss this ' matter with us. BANKING HOURS FROM I O'CLOCK A. M. TO 8 O'CLOCK P. M. SAFE DEPOSIT VAULTS OPEN FROM I A. M.
