Transcript Both pamphlet and leaflet, however, are devoted to an attack on the political structure of the Russian Republic. A speech by Representative Burton L. French delivered in Congress on December 9, 1919, attacking Russia, is reprinted in full. By means of parallel column comparisons between the Soviet and the United States governmental organizations, it attempts to demonstrate that—in the words of the pamphlet— "Sovietism, like the Czardom," is a "highly centralized tyranny." By a strange coincidence a dispatch to the Globe from its Russian correspondent, Michael Farbman, was published on the same day these leaflets were issued. Mr. Farbman speaks of the recent elections for the Moscow Soviet. In the old elections (under the Czar) 50,000 property owners took part; now the electors number from 500,000 to 600,000. The last Soviet in Moscow had a big Communist Bolshevist majority. At the end of 1919 the Communist members constituted 69 per cent of the whole body. . . . The Mensheviki and the Social Revolutionists together had at that time 162 members, or 18 per cent. Now the Mensheviki have less than 1 per cent, while the Social Revolutionaries are not represented at all. The Communists have 89 per cent, the non-partisans 6 per cent and 'Communist sympathizers' 4 per cent. (N. Y. Globe, March 19, 1920.) Dr. Levermore's leaflet, in comparative charts, seeks to show that the Soviet Government is far less responsible to the Russian people than the United States Government is to the American people. The purpose of these publications is not stated, but it may be assumed that it is not entirely in harmony with the motto of the Peace Society. Whatever may have been the motive behind them, the result, at least, is not calculated to promote "international justice" or "friendship" for the Russian workers among the American people. The method employed in this propaganda is the usual one: a careful selection of documented facts, arranged in such a way as to discredit the Soviet Government, and an equally careful omission of those facts which favor it. For instance, to take but one point, both Mr. French and Dr. Levermore play up the indirect methods of election to the Congresses of Soviets as against the direct election of certain Federal officers in the United States. Not a word is mentioned by either of the universal application of the recall to all Russian offices and its complete absence in the United States machinery of government. It is fair to assume that both Mr. French and Dr. Lever- more would object to the issuance by a Russian "peace" soci- 44
