'r I BOLSHEYIKI READY TO CONSIDER PEACJJ Lient.-Co- l. Malono Tells Brit ish Parliament Terms of tho Soviet MUST LIFT THE BLOCKADE Col. John Ward Contends Withdrawal Now Would Be Fatal to Russia. London, Nov. 8. The House of Com mons devoted all of last evening to discussion of the Russian problem with out, however, throwing any new light en the subject. Labor members, strongly criticised the Government's Intervention policy and the cost thereof and a state- ment that the BolBhevlkl were ready to negotiate peace with the Entente Qov ernments upon reasonable terms was made by Lieut-Co- l. Lestrang Malone, ens of tho Liberal members. Winston Churchill, Minister of War, mtde a long reply, defending the Gov- ernment policy, whloh, he contended, was not solely a British policy, but one carried out In full cooperation with the Allies and the United States, who are equally responsiDie. lie maae no to the statement by Col. Malone. CoL John Ward, the Laborlto mem- ber of Parliament, known us tho \niwlca' \ member on aocountof hla par ticipation In tho unionization of these laborers upon railway and canal work, who was ordered to Russia January, 1J18, joined In the debate. He received a rousing reception Members crowded Into the House to listen to the absorb-I- ni tale of his experiences In European Russia and in Siberia and to his reflec- tions on tho revolution. , Like All Other Revolution. \When revolution starts,\ he said, \you go back to the Jungle, whether yoa like It or not. There had been mas- sacre and murder on both sides, and you would have exactly the same thing hire if a revolution occurred.\ CoL Ward defended Admiral Kolchak, commander of the Siberian armies. He slid that In some districts controlled by the Soviet conditions were good, but In others, \ruled by some narrow minded scoundrel.\ there were occurr- ences which beggared description. He gave horrifying accounts of Bol- shevist atrocities. In which, he said, the wells had been choked with dead, and sail that labor newspapers In England which called criticism of this regime \an attack on social democracy\ did not want to study the facts. Col. Ward con- cluded with the statement that Great Britain had helped Russia through the most difficult time, and that It would be fatal to withdraw Just when the atmos- phere appeared to be clearing In response to Ignorant and uninformed public clamor. An Interview with Col. Malona appears In the Daily Herald, the Labor organ, In which he denies accusations of brutality on the part of the Soviet regime, and asserts that, the Bolshevist. Government has established law and order and' Is carrying out a programme of social and showing distinct evl' 4tnces of permanence. Says Blockade Aids Soviets. (VI. Malone says that those opposed to the communistic form of government are doing everything by tho blockade to solidify this form of government. He believes that peace can be obtained Im- mediately, but that ,the task win Jbt more difficult than It would have been a year ago. He has In his possession a draft ot the conditions upon which the leaders of the Soviet Government In Russia are willing to discuss peace with the allied and associated governments. He said ho believed It would be possible to cah a peace conference of the warring fac- tions In Russia on the basis that all ex- isting do facto governments In the vari- ous parts of Russia should remain in full control of the territory they are now occupying, subject to adjustment The removal of the economic blockade ot Bolshevist Russia also would be a con- dition.

Tho Kin in a proclamation to his sub- jects to-d- ay appealed to them to join him in celebrating the anni- versary of armistice day, Novem- ber 11, by a suspension at 11 o'clock of all normal activities for two , minutes. The event, \which stayed tho carnage and marked tho victory of right and freedom,\ should thus be com- memorated so that \tho thoughts of overy one may be conce- ntrated upon reverent remem- brance of tho glorious dead.\ His Majesty expresses the be- lief that all will gladly unite in this simplo servico of silence and remembrance. with Bolshevism, but that he had been Impressed, nevertheless, with\ the work of national reconstruction being per- formed by tho Soviet Government Ths termi referred to Col. Malone stated, are Identical In the main with those which William C. Bullitt brought back from Moacow to Ports last spring.

BERNSTORFF DENIES PROPAGANDA . WORK Former Envoy Says Ho Took No Fart In Campaign in America. HE WANTED FILMS SENT Queried About Work of Gcorgo Creel, \tho English Journalist.\ Bg IU Alleviated Prett. BsnLiH, Nov. 8 (delayed). Count Bernstorff was on the stand for a pro tracted examination regarding the of fectlveness of German propaganda In the United States during the war at to day's session of the committee of the National Assembly Investigating the subject of responsibility for the war. Count Bernstorff was asked at the opening of the session what ho had done to offset British propaganda and the utter Impossibility of convincing the Gorman propaganda au- - thoritles that they must send clnemato graph films to counteract the effect of the English efforts. In the course of his testimony Bern- storff said the American press was strongly anti-Germ- from the begin' nlng of the great war and the papers published In the German language had only on ineffective appeal to the Amen cans. A laugh was raised when Deputy Wermuth, ths former Mayor of Berlin, asked about the activities of ths \Eng lish journalist\ George Creel. When pressed for a direct answer re gardlng-th- comparative merits of Brit- ish and German propaganda Count Bernstorff evaded a reply as to the in- trinsic merits by saying that the British propaganda In the United States was superior to ths German because \of the technical difficulties\ of transmis- sion. The former Ambassador declared that ha avoided participation In the propaganda activities because of his of- ficial position and Ms\' desire not to be compromised by It Tells of Dernbnrsjr'a Trip. He said that former Colonial Minister Dernbuvg on his trip to the United States had written articles and delivered 1rft.ttv until hA AmarfMri riAVArnmint oecam6 convinced that the German agent was stirring up German-American- a against the United States. The subcommittee passed from the subject of the public press when a ques- tion by Deputy Slnxhelmer, a member of the committee, came up regarding the opinion which a neutral diplomat, other- wise unnamed, had expressed regarding tilt jj offer ot President Wilson. The diplomat, according to the report, lint j,earj R nimor as to the contents of the .. rM on h hunt nt hi rumor condemned It. Herr Zlmmermann, then Foreign Minister, made capital out of tnls condemnation but when the note actually appeared the neutral diplomat ghifted his position and praised Its con tents. Zlmmermann, however, sup pressed the later development. The name of Prof. Hugo Muen- - A Rare ' 4 .' ' ' '.; twv. ,.\'1 THE SUN, ERIDAY, sterberg of Harvard was mentioned and 1 was suggested that the professor, who eled during the war in the United States, had been killed In some mysterious way. (A rumor to this effect was current In tho circles In Berlin at ths time of Dr. Muensterberg's death.) Count Bernstorff denied tho story, declaring that although Bngland had used every conceivable means to rid the United States of all prominent Germans she would hardly have tried violence and that Prof. Muensterberg had died of an apopleptlo stroke. Denies Chnrge Against Wilson Members of the subcommittee voiced n suspicion that the note of President Wilson had been launched in under. standing with England. Count Bern, storff denied this assumption cate gorlcally, saying that the note had been .L. , , un wiu contrary uuwcjuuiuw- - aim un- - pleasant to England. Deputy Slnxhelmer broke in upon' Uernstorffs examination to ask Herr Zlmmermann, tho former Foreign Bee. rotary, whether ho had spoken of Prcal dent Wilson's note an \shameless and Impudent.\ Zlmmermann, however, did not recall the Incident. Zvnicii, Nov. 5 (delayed). Lieut' Gen. von Falkenheln, formerly chief of the German Great General Staff, and Rupprecht, the former Crown Prince of Bavaria, have written to tho chairman of the German commission appointed to Inquire Into tho question of the respon- sibility for the war, asking to be heard on tho subject of the military members taken In Belgium and France. Prince Rupprecht Is now In Switzerland. MGR. BONZANO STAYS IN U. S. No Post In Home Held Open for Pnpal Delegate. Bt tie Anortatei Prut. Rome, Nov. 5 (delayed). The report that Mgr. Bonzano, Papal Delegate in th United States, was about to leave Washington to take up an Important poet hero was denied at the Vatican A similar report was circulated when Mgr. Bonzano was In Rome on his recent visit, the Idea being that he mlgfft be appointed Secretary of the Consls- - torlal Congregation dealing with Ameri- can affairs to replace Mgr. Vlcento Sardl, who will probably be created a Cardinal at the Consistory In December. It appears, however, that Pope Bene dict thought the presence of Mgr. Bonzano in Washington Indispensable at the present moment because of his knowledge of American affairs and his acquaintance with the leading men there. Thus Mgr. Bonzano returned to the United States, where It Is considered probable he will remain for a few years before receiving the red hat WOMAN KILLED AT FOOD SALE.

The newspapers all comment on the report that England and France have definitely approached Washington on the question of Flume Initiative being taken by France, but the tone of the comment Is not particularly hopeful. In particular there Is little con fidence In any real support from Eng- land. The Paris correspondent of the Tempo suggests that the move may lead to a break between Europe and America, which Is not to be desired' by any one. and doubts whether England and France would push their support so far as this point The suggestion that Italy and Jugo slavia should attempt to get together for direct discussion of tho Flume question Is met by the answer sent from Paris by various correspondents that Trumbltch. the Jugo-Sla- v statesman, will not con- - sidy such a step, that he Is waiting for the elections which be thinks will lead to a smashing Socialist victory and Government which would give Jugo- slavs their original programme, Mas- simo to Isonzo or even beyond. , This report should be taken with res ervatlon, but If there's anything In It then it shows remarkable misleading situations.
