Transcript n d e if it 11 cl g f fabricated, editorials. The following is a fair sample taken from the Times of October 5, 1918: Concurring reports from several sources leave no doubt that the Russian Reign of Terror is becoming faster and madder; that Lenin becoming appalled has tried to check it; that he has failed, and that the power in internal affairs is slipping out of his hands into those of men of more brutal type than he. In other words, Lenin is duplicating the history of Robespierre, who found his own Reign of Terror wrested from his hands by far worse men than he was, who seemed disposed to check it, and who was killed by them. Like Lenin, Robespierre was a man of education. He was willing to set murder loose for a purpose . . . aimless massacre for mere delight in killing was not in his nature, though it was in that the Herberts who opposed him and the Billauds and Tallieus who killed him. . . . Who are Lenin's Herberts and Billauds? One of them is a man named Jacob Peters. . . . He is the man who is described as signing death warrants all day long without looking at them. ... A woman applies to Peters for news of her husband. 'Shot by mistake/ callously answers Peters, the mistake being doubtless due to his habit of not reading the warrants he signs. An- i other is Zinovieff, the raging madman who is President of the Petrograd Svoiet. Another is Shatoff, once a New York anarchist and now head of the Extraordinary Commission against Counter-Revolution in Petrograd. . . . Now he is a murderer by the wholesale and is said to be the man who slew the Czar's wife and children, though most of his victims are far humbler. These dispatches and the above-quoted editorial was written only eighteen months before the New York World carried a five-column story from its special correspondent, Lincoln Eyre, who met Zinoviev personally, saw his work at first hand , and reported his conclusions with obvious fair-mindedness as follows: There is no question, however, that the businesslike fashion in which Petrograd's affairs are conducted is the chief cause of her people's lesser suffering. For this great praise is assuredly due to Dictator Zinovieff. Five years ago had any one of his Socialist companions in exile in Paris told him he could prove himself competent to administer a great municipality, Zinovieff probably would have smiled. (N. Y. World, March 8, 1920. THE TRUTH ABOUT THE TERROR It is of course true that a certain amount of "terror" was used by the Soviet Government to suppress attempts by unscrupulous minority groups to overthrow the government by force at a time when Russia was invaded on every front by foreign arms. The extent to which the truth was twisted by wild exaggeration into a complete fabrication may be gained by the following excerpts from an interview with Isaac Don
