YUDENITCH IMS I FRESH ADVANCE Jfortlnvcstcrn Government' Is Hopeful Ho Will Hcsurao ' Attack on Petrograd. OArTUHES SIX VILLAGES Finnish and Esthonian Re- cruits. Armed by Allies, Pro- posed in New Negotiations. HtiMNOFcms, Finland, Nov. 13. A Northwestern Army communication dated Tuesday says:- \An advance Is proceeding In tho of Pskov. Tho Whites are proR-rtisl- east of Gorstltsa: six villains have been captured. In the direction of flatchlna tho Whites havo begun a coun- ter offensive from tho village of Llena. Prisoners and machine euns have been captured.\ Ofllclals of the Northwestern Russian Government still profess the belief that Gen Yudenltch will bo able to resume his attack on Petrograd. Plnanco Minister jlargulles told tho Associated Press cor- respondent that the Government Is work-in- s on a new plan, namely, n fresh eampalcn with the help of Finnish and Esthonian recruits; the Allies to furnish the sum'\\ and foot tho bill for tho operations. Repayment, the Minister asserted, would be Guaranteed with flax Med and other products of the region. The Government believes that Yudenltch could take Petrosrad by Christmas. M MarRUlles admitted that If the Baltic States make terms with the kl Gen. Yudenltch's army would wou'd find Itself virtually Interned. Ho apoke bitterly of tho Dorjvu conference saying: \I do not think a peace will be concluded. The Baltic StaUs are merely trying to force the Allies to recognize their Independence.\ A Riga despatch to tho Lettish Press Bureau says: \Supported by the allied fleet the Letts continued their successful advance against Avaloff-Bermon- to a distance ...... 01 miecii ni.witvi - direction of Mltnu. They also captured the Important position of Kekkau, south- east of Rlsa, and Bnl Dohn, thirty kilo- meters away. The booty Includes eleven heavy guns and 100 machine guns.\- DORPAT CONFERENCE LAST HOPE OF REDS Aid to Yudenitch WouldBring Fall of Petrograd. Special Dc (patch to Tni Scn. Washington, Nov, 13. It Is not be- cause of tho strength of tho Bolshovlkl but owing to the weakness of the forces opposing them that Petrograd dofe not fall, according to Inform tlon received here through official channels According to these reports the Red army Is so feeb e that the conference nt Dor-p- at between the Reds, Livonia, the with representatives of Poland, Lithuania, Letvla and Finland present' as observers, was called by the Bolsheviki in desperation. It Ifl authoritatively stated here that Gen. Yudenltch's army numbers not to exceed 15,000 men and yet ho is not only making a good showing but has euch a chance of success that even tho weak assistance of the Baltic States, should they Join the offensive would in all likelihood turn the scale in his favor. While the Red army comprises many more 'men than Yudenltch has at his command the morale of the rank nnd filo Is so poor that they are reicatedl re- pulsed by forces much Inferior In num- bers. The Importance of the Dorp-i- t confere- nce was dwelt on to-d- by officials who know the weakness of tho Reds. They say that If the Reds are so put to It as to seek peace with the weak Baltic States, who have been fighting a defenslvo war, It Is another and nt acknowledgment that they are In dire straits. It was pointed out that a campaign waged In earnest from the Baltic State?, which would needs be one In which the Esthonlans, Letts and Llvonlans would receive both moral and material as- sistance from other Powers, would bring such aid to the Yudenltch army that Petrograd must fall at once. This would mean the end of Bolshevik rule In north- ern Russia. It was said at the State Department that recent Information through Swedish prm reports was to tho effect that Yudenltch would not let up on his opera tions on account of tho winter, which las set In unusually early throughout western Russia. One d plomat summed up the situation briefly ; \The Bolsheviki are so weak that a very feeble army has been wor-r'e- d to death,\ he said. \The Baltic States also are so weak that the ef- forts of tho Reds to make peace with them Is a palpable confession of weak-t.es- s. It Is too bad that tho Dorpat con- ference Is being held, because If an agreement with the Reds Is reached It will enable them to hang on a little longer. All Yudenltch needs to take the c ty Is to get a little help to enable him to stand out a little longer.\ BOLSHEVIKI CLAIM CAPTURE OF TOWN Lenine Hints at Operation Toward British India.

By the Aeiodatei Prei: Omsk, Nov. 6 (delayed). Tho town of Ishlm, eighty miles north of Potro-pavlovs- k, has been occupied by tho Dot. hhevikl. The latter have crossed the . Jshlm River and advanced from twenty-Iflv- e to fifty miles on an irregular front \o the town of Tokushl, on tho Kurban railway. (Tokushl Is 150 miles due west of Omsk.) . The evacuation of Omsk by tho allied missions was carried out y accord- - lng to programme. The British repro- - sor.tatlves wore the tlrst to leave, fol-- I lowed by the American Consul-Genera- l, Krnest Harris, the French mission and tho remainder of the Czech troops un-- I dor command of Muor-Ge- Jules Janln. The Japanese representatives have an- - nounend their Intention of remaining In Omsk temporarily. The American' Vlce- - Consul, T. It. Hansen, remains at Omsk, enabling Mr. Harris to retain dally con. lact with the Kolchak Foreign Oftlce nnd the situation generally from Novo Mlckolucvsk, where he Intends to re- main temporarily, Mr. Harris was charged with tho re- sponsibility of assuring the removal of some thirty Russian women of the American Red Cross personnel. On the J train conveying Consul Harris were the ' last Americans In Ousk. They Included the Consular staff, Messrs.

RED PEACE PARLEY OPENS SATURDAY Esthonians Grant Bolsheviki Safe Conduct to Dorpat. Bg the Auoclated Preu. HeLsinokohs, Nov. 13. Peace negoti- ations between the Esthonlans, Llvon- lans and tho Bolsheviki will begin Sat- urday, It was announced hero The Lithuanians will not participate in the negotiations. George Tchltcherln, Bolshevik For- eign Minister, has sent a wireless mes- sage to M. Pilp, Esthonian Foreign Minister, demanding guarantees of safety for the Bolshevik representatives to the Dorpat conference. M. Pllp assuring Tchltcherln of safe con- duct and Immunity from arrest for tho delegates. Jt Is expected the Bolsheviki repre- sentatives will arrive nt the Esthonian llnef from Pskov Sunday. They will be met there and escorted to Dorpat. The delegates to the conference of the Baltic States returned to Dorpat to- night from Reval. The discussions are proceeding slowly and with caution and apparently are being tnken up in the following order armistice, Baltic League and peace. Views have been exchanged on all these subjects, but thus far not even the conditions of nn armistice have been fully elaborated. Only repiesenta- - tives of the Baltic States arc actively framing the programme. it Is evident that the conferees are keeping a careful eye turned toward tho Entente nations. The speech made by the British Premier, last Saturday, prob ably will have considerable eff.ct, but the conferees have not yet been Inurmed as to Its chief points. The discussions on the Baltic league are said to have developed points of con- siderable difference, but it is general!) believed here that the Baltic States, who regard the league vital to their existence, will strive to sink rivalries In the Inter- est of tho common welfare. Tho Esthon- lans are concerned In the rights of the Esthonlans In Russia, of whom It la esti- mated there are half' a million. The question of economic regulations Is being carefully considered. The cor- respondent is Informed that the Esthon- lans will accept tho principle of fue trade, provided the Bolsheviki guarantee not to attempt to use trade channels as a means for propaganda.

'NO BID TO SOVIETS, SAYS LLOYD GEORGE British Premier Denies That Any Emissary Has Inter- viewed Bolsheviki. ALLIES MAY ACT SHORTLY Assures Parliament Govern- ment Will Make No More Com- mitments in Russia. London, Nov. 13. Premier Lloyd George asserted In tho House1 of Com- mons y that no person at any time, on his behalf or with his knowledge, had Interviewed Bolshevik representatives In ordr to le.irn whether negotiations for peaco m ght bo opened, and upon what terms. The Premier announced that It was proposed to call at an early date an In- ternational conference at which the Min- sters of the Al led and Associated Powers might consider the various problems which tho Peace Conference ns yet had found Itself unable to settle, among which was tho problem of Russia. Referring to the peace advances by the Bolshev kl Lloyd George said the Allies always had de- clined to take action on communications purporting to come from hoJtile conn-tile- s through Irresponsible agencies, and he. thought It inadvlsablo to depart from this practice. Tho Prcm'nr nrlmlttprt that tho Bol- - shevlkl were rapidly approaching Omsk. Admiral Koicnan was sun uieic, n\-ev- and the fate of the place would bo decided only as the result of the battles that might be fought shortly In front of the city. The Premier announced that John II. Macklnder, member of the House ot Commons for the Camlachle dlvlson ot Glasgow, had gone as a special commis- sioner to open up trade and commerce with southern Russia. The settlement of the Russian problem, said the Premier, was most essential to the reconstruction of the world. The An.iitiAno in tv,ff .nnntrv. hfl fiald. were a contributing cause to the preva ling high prices. Likewise, ho added, tho German reactionaries already weie using the present strife In Russ,ia to strengthen their iniluence. Lloyd George detailed the difficul- ties of the position of Gen. Denlklne leader on the southwest- ern Russian front), asserting that Gen. Denlklne was holding with a small army a front of 1,300 miles with marauding bands In his rear a territory of such vastness that Denlklne was unablo to administer It properly. The Prem er offered to give the Houe an opportunity on Monday next to dis- cuss the Russian situation, but he pointed out tho dangers of n public de- bate on such a delicate subject. Mean- while he assured the members that the Government would not Inaugurate a new policy or burden the country with any fresh commttmento. LANSING DENIES ANY BOLSHEVIST NOTES America's Attitude Toward Trotzky Unchanged. Washington, Nov. 13. There Is to be no compromise with the Bolshevik Gov ernment In Russia by the United States .ind no movement is contemplated wheih could be considered as offering to confer with the Bolshevik element In that coun- try. It was learned at the State rs -- ..,,. fimdnls slid there had been no exchange of notes between this Government nnd the British or any other Government concerning sugges- tions that a conference with tho Bol- sheviki be undertaken. This country's attitude Is the same now. It was said, as It was last year when Secretary Laming arpealed to the clvl'lzed nations of the world to declare tho Bolsheviki outlaws. Emphasizing that there could be no compromise with tho Bo'shevlkl, officials said rercnt radl-c- outbreaks In the United St ilea were largely due to Bolshevik Influence. Officials said the consensus of opinion was that Bolshevism could not be crushed by force, but only through a rnmnalm of education to provo the fal lacy of tho Bolshevik doctrine. In this connection It was pointed out that ureal Britain and France had furnished the nr.ti.nni.hovU; plpmrnts In Russia with vast sums of money and material, nnd that tho UnltcJ States had done all tnat was posslblo legally In that direction. Further aid by this country must await the recognition of a stable Government In Russia. Indications are- - that the Omsk Government Anally will be recognized. To Dlncusii Forest Saving.

Germany's potato and beet crop Is represented In gloomy terms by the Deutsche Tageazeltung ns ti result of Investigations In various parts of the country, A million tons of potatoes. It says, will bo lacking In East Prussia, and tho beet crop amounts to only 75 per cent, of lat year's, owing to bad weather and tho scarcity of workers. Tho outlook In West Prussia Is equally black, according to tho paper. Nearly all thn beets and a fourth of the potatoes ar still.

PRINCE ALFONSO EXILED FROM SPAIN To Reside in Switzerland, Says Unexplained Despatch. Madrid, Nov. 12 (delayed), King Al- fonso and Premier Toca, after confer- ring with regard to Prince Alfonso of Orleans, who resided abroad during the greater part of the war, but returned recently to Madrid, determined that Im- mediately Princess Beatrice, tho wife of Prince Alfonso, recovers from her Illness tho couple will depart for Switzer- land Just what Is behind the decision of the King and the Premier with regard to Alfonso of Orleans, who Is an Infante of Spain, and his wife Is not apparent. Alfonso Is 33 years old and a fon of Princo Antolne of Bourbon-Orlean- s, Duke of Galllera. A despatch from Madrid last Tues- day said that with the return of tho King from his tilp to England and France It was expected that he nnd Premier Toca would solve the \situa tion\ regarding the Infanto Antonio of Orleans, who was reported to have quit Madrid surreptitiously Homo time ago and visited Italy In order to protect his great landed Interests, although he was under orders of the King not to leave the capital. Seemingly the case of Al- fonso was erroneously connected with A.ilonlo. SWEEP BY POLES IN UPPER SILESIA Germans Admit Defeat in Municipal Elections. Paris, Nov. 13. First reports on the munlclpil elections in Upper Silesia to reach Parte show the Poles obtained a per cent, of the votes cast, and say that the Germans themselves admit de- feat. The n organ of Upper Silesia, Katoictttcr Zeitung, comments: \Upper Silesia is lost to us.\ Polish organs express the hope that tho Entente will consider tho municipal elections, which wero organized by the Germans, as final, and that a plebiscite Is now unnecessary, Polish opinion ex- pressing itself In spite of what the newa-pipe- rs term \unsatisfactory voting con- ditions.\ By the Aiiociited Pteti. Berlin, Nov. 13. The Prussian Gov- ernment apparently Is not alarmed over future developments In Upper Silesia as a result of the local elections. An In- spired bulletin asserts that it Is neces- sary to consider the local conditions pre- vailing in several communities. If tho Polish vote shows a startling Increase this Is to be accounted for by the fact that many citizens believed their local Interests would bo moro favorably rep- resented under a Polish administration. \They however, will promptly vote German,\ the bulletin says, \when the Issue of a union with Germany or Poland Is at stake. If only for the reason that they prefer to cast their lot with Germany rather than with the heavily financially Impoverished Polish State, whose economic conditions are even more convulsed than those of Germany.'' The bulletin at tho same time gives the German populace a hint to rally to the support of\ the German cause when the deciding balloting takes place and warns against the lukewarmness or in- difference shown in local elections. 25,000 HONOR HAASE ASHES. l.ant Tributes Paid to SoclalUt Lender in Berlin.

Tho I former Chancellor hotly denied this. Dr. von Helffcrlch asserted that from the start of tho great war the United States would not have been satisfied un- less Germany was thoroughly beaten. \Did you believe that tho could not only bring Great Britain to her knees but prevent tho Americans from arriving?\ asked Chairman Wermuth. \I was not optimistic enough.\ Dr. von Hellferich replied, \to believe that tho United States could not set troops over, for I had seen the case with which England had carried troops ind muni tions and supplies to Salonlca despite the fact that our large submarines were cruising In the Mediterranean. I be- lieved If the submarine warfare was determined on It was the duty of tho Chnncellor, myself and all others to sup- port It to the utmost.\ I Tho witness admitted that surrender by Germany in the case arising from tho torpedoing of the English cross Channel steamer Sussex was unspeak-- 1 ably difficult, and that he hoped the United States after a total surrender would demand and see to It that ure.it Britain would respect international law and lift the blockade, \which was the most Illegal and most murderous act of the war.\ Tho United States did not act, the witness added, so that he and every one e'.e strove to the utmost to advance the submarine war.

P.oiik, Nov. 13. -- The passage In Lloyd George's Guildhall speech which deals with Flume has been attentively read here. Most newspapers, however, have been slow to comment upon it. The general feeling Is that the Pre- mier's words are quite satisfactory, but it Is asked how long the question Is to remain In the region of words and whether President Wllcon still Is the arbiter of European problems, despite his Inevitable failure to carry the peace treaty through the Senate, There Is much Insistence on this point. Exchange of freight with Flume hav- ing been roestabllf hed, the population there claims tho abolition of the block- ade, which they 3ay was Useless.

Largo orders for arms nnd ammunition, placed by Mexico In Belgium and Spain In prepa- ration for the possibility of American intervention, wero disclosed to-d- when tho Stato Department let It become known that the Government had taken steps to provtnt their ehlpmcnt. Tho Charge d'Affalres of the United States Embassy In Brussels has under Instructions, that uhipment of the munitions would be In violation ef tho International arms convention. As Spain la not a party to tho agree- ment, which was designed to aid In keeping the peace of the world during the after the war transition period, no such dlroct action is probable at Ma- drid. The order, In Belgium was placed with tin- - Fabrlque Nationale d'Arms at Liege, probably under tho direction of Candldo Agullar, Mexican Minister of Foreign Affairs, and President Carranza's who went to Europe recently after stopping here and placing a wreath on George Washington's tomb at Mount Vernon.
