Will Russia Fight Again for Democracy?

THE BIRTH OF THE RUSSIAN DEMOCRACY

By A. J. SACK Director of the Russian Information Bureau in the United States

Josephus Daniels, Secretary of the U. S. Navy, says :

"The Birth of the Russian Democracy,' which has been issued by the Russian Information Bureau, established by the Russian Extraordinary Mission to the United States,

appears to contain a mass of information that is invaluable." Jules J. Jusserand, French Ambassador at Washington, says:

* A most welcome contribution to a better knowledge of the recent events in Russia." Herbert Hoover, the U. S. Food Administrator, says :

* It is a perfect mine of information concerning that extraordinary and important movement in Russia which has had such enormous consequences. It is a pleasure to have at hand such an authoritative and well documented account."

The New York Times of June 23 says :

** Beyond question the most authoritative work that has yet appeared on the development and present condition of the Russian upheaval is Mr. A. J. Sack's large volume on The Birth of the Russian Democracy.' His work brings the account of revolutionary developments down to the end of last year, and the narrative is remarkably accurate and comprehensive. The century-long story of the revolutionary movement in Russia makes a thrilling chapter in human history, and Mr. Sack tells it well. He explains clearly the part which the Bolsheviki have taken and shows why they have attained so much apparent success.

The first part of the book contains a full history of the Russian Revolutionary Movement from the Decembrist uprising of 1825 up to the March Revolution, 1917. This part is richly illustrated with photographs of the Russian Revolutionists,-beginning with the rare photographs from portraits of the Decembrists, executed in 1826, up to the leaders of the present-day Russia. The chapter devoted to the history of the Duma is illustrated with 130 photographs of the most prominent members of the Russian Parliament.

The second part of the book is devoted to developments in Russia since the March Revolution and contains documents giving the declarations and acts of the Provisional Government, of the Bolsheviki revolt and all the most important documents of the Russian Revolution from March, 1917, up to date, with many facsimile photographs of important documents. It gives the detailed proceedings of the most important historical sessions of the Councils of Workmen's, Soldiers' and Peasants' Delegates ; the proceedings of the National Conference in Moscow, of the Democratic Conference and of the Preliminary Parliament in Petrograd. Complete speeches of A. F. Kerensky, I. G. Tseretelli, A. I. Konovalov, Prof. P. N. Miliukov, A. I. Gouchkov, Gen. Alexeiev, Gen. Kornilov, George Plekhanov, E. C. Breshko Breshkovskaya, Peter Kropotkin, V. M. Chernov, N. S. Tscheidze and other leaders.

Mr. Sack believes that Russia, given the proper general and military help by the Allies, will re-enter the war against Germany. Mr. Sack's book confirms the hope just expressed by the old Russian revolutionist and leader, Prince Peter Kropotkin, that After all, Russia will recover from her terrible illness-in the shape of a federated democratic republic, moving towards the higher ideals of equality and fraternity.

An Air Battle (Continued) their large clouds of visible gray smoke. Nevertheless it is irritating.

After fifteen minutes or so I had gained perceptibly on the Hun, ever keeping in a direct line with him and the sun. My advantage lay in being able to do this, for thus I might approach unseen until the last moment. I soon came in such a range that he no longer looked like a black sploteh or a black silhouette, for I could distinguish his form more closely-namely, tha: it was a two-strutter, that it was camovflaged, and, above all, and not to my comfort, that it was a two-man machine. It inight be well to add here something about the coloring of the machines. All the French machines in this sector are camooflaged ; that is, the body, tail, and the upper sides of the wings are painted with great smudges of green, brown, and black, so that from above they resemble the ground, and are hard to detect by the enemy. (On the sides of the machines of our escadrille there is also painted a huge green crocodile, the insignia of the escadrille.) The under sides of the wings, however, are left the original silver gray. Also on the upper and lower sides of both wings are painted two very large French insignias, consisting of a large red outer circle of a diameter the width of the wing and an inner circle of white with a center of blue. Also the vertical rudder is painted in three broad stripes of red, white, and blue. These are the distinguishing insignias of the French airplane, and are most important. In spite of them, a Frenchman has often been known to attack another Frenchman. Each country has its own insignia. The Germans use the large black Maltese cross, placed, as the French, on both sides of the two wings and on the vertical rudder. The Germans now and then make use of machines camouflaged similar to those of the French.

I came nearer and nearer to the enemy, and the shrapnel kept bursting between me and him. Yet he did not change his course in the slightest; he went on straight west, farther into France.

Soon I was only about two hundred meters from him and a hundred above him, and yet he had not seen me! In another minute I would only be a hundred yards from him. He was camouflaged like a French machine, and it was hard to distinguish the big black cross, because my glasses had become befogged with oil spatterings. I got all ready to fire; my hand trembled about the trigger handle of my machine gun; and, I can tell you, my heart was keeping time with the whir of the motor! I was going to shoot a man-the first time in my life! But the cold truth of this fact never affects or enters a man's mind in war. I could not miss ; I had a direct shot at the pilot with my sweeping machine gun, and he was less than one hundred meters away and had not seen me! It was incredible. I nosed my machine down, right on top of the Hun, got the pilot in perfect aim through my telescopic sight, and my hand began to tighten steadily about the trigger handle. All this took but a fraction of a second, then another fraction of a second, and thenThen in that fraction of a second a million things happened.

No, I was not shot at before I myself took time to shoot and was brought down a wounded pilot ; I did not suddenly lose my nerve ; neither did my gun fail to work at the last moment; nor did I sympathetically take pity on the Hun and refrain from kill
