PETROQUAD, April 30, via Lon-
don, 6:3 4 p. m,—The council of sol-

decided that, in view of the neces-
sity of providing new formations for

I hitherto held 111 the capital by or-
der of the provisional government
to be In readiness to oppose any

if needed, provided authority Is
given by the council.
A new general alliance of military
and naval officers has been consti-
tuted in Petrograd with the aim of
assisting the higher commission in
organizing the army on a new basis
for the object o< attaining victory.
Maintenance of army discipline is
placed in the hands of the troops
under an order issued today by A. J.

The order directs that henceforth

Not for Separate Peace.
Petrograd, April 29.—It is evident
from foreign telegrams that the atti-
tude of the Russian democracy toward
peace has been misconstrued and dis-
torted by the foreign press. The de-
sire for peace has become more wide-
spread and articulate since the revo-
lution but it is based on entirely dif-
ferent conceptions from those enter-
tained during the old regime.

the first witness today at the resump-

United States began detailed confer-
ences to solve the infinite number of
different problems related to Ameri-

long conferences were in progress.
The most important was one at the
White House between President Wil-

mission. No information regarding
the nature of the talk, which lasted
an hour, was made public, but it was
understood to have been a general
discussion of the needs of France and
the part the United States can best
play in helping the sister republic in
the struggle against the Germans.
Other conferences were held be-
tween officials of the navy depart-
ment and the naval section of the
mission headed by Admiral Choche-
prat, between representatives of the
war department, especially officers of
the general staff, and members of
the military section headed by Mar-
shal Joffre, and between American
financial experts and members of tho
economic section of the mission,
headed by M. Simon.
