Transcript a a is Mr. Spargo, for instance, gives voice to the usual assertion that there is "not much to choose between the ways of Stolypin and Von Plehve and those of the Lenin-Trotzky rule," but he supports this with the unusual claim that "the death penalty was never inflicted for civil crimes under the late Czar. It was never inflicted for political offenses. Only rarely was it inflicted for murder." As Mr. Hard points out, Prince Kropot- kin, a more reliable authority than Mr. Spargo, wrote in his book on "The Terror" what would seem to be a matter of common knowledge, that "Under the military law now (1906) in action in most of Russian territory the smallest agrarian disorders, and even the setting fire to a landlord's barn or stock, are treated as implying the death penalty." (1) Mr. Russell's book deals in much the same wares, but displayed in a less attractive showcase. He gives far less of the impression of the scholar and the scientist. A few extracts show the general tenor of his work. Its [Bolshevism's] record for disaster is incomparable among all the movements known to man (p. 297). According to this manifesto, the overwhelming mass of workmen and peasants is not only anti-Bolshevist, but on the point of rising in arms against Bolshevist tyrrany (p. 285). The atrocity stories that Mr. Russell advertises are as revolting and as unsupported as the most absurd obscenities that have been passed around as facts about Soviet Russia. He quotes the following as dependable: lSovoepiay is what the irreverent term the Socialist Federative Republic (Bolshevist regime) or, in other words, the blackest, most brutal tyranny that ever disgraced humanity. . . . I have learned in the evidence of an imprisoned English woman that a drunken commissioner named Heller has women publicly stripped and subject to obscene treatment and chooses girls to violate at his leisure. . . . It is reported that four grand dukes were abominally beaten before being murdered. . . . The final stage of this abomination is the employment of Chinese torturers, who are also chiefly employed to carry out executions. It is impossible to speak with certainty, since the victims are not allowed to live afterwards, but I confidently believe the statements of credible prisoners, who say that they have heard, . . . [and so on for pages and pages (pp. 265 ff.)] The present Soviet Government does not represent the Russian people. In comparison with the entire population only a small minority supports the government, and what is worse, to the supporters of the government are rallying all the hooligans, robbers and the like ... (p. 279). (1) See Hard, "Anti-Bolsheviks, Mr. Spargo." 9, 1919, p. 307. 41 New Republic, July
