Transcript early morning of the 12th December they attacked the Arsenal and captured it after a short struggle, in which only one soldier fell. This success revealed the great war weariness, apathy and demoralisation which had overtaken the Russian Army, as well as the fearlessness and defensive capacity of the Georgian proletariat. We have already noted that all sections of the population of Georgia are characterised by the economic careless- njess and love of enjoyment which is a heritage of Feudalism. To this heritage must also be added a striking valour in the best sense of the word. After the 26th May, the date of the Declaration of Independence, the 12th December is celebrated in Georgia as a national holiday. On that day the Georgian Social-Democracy captured the arms to defend itself against subsequent attacks. The Workers' Guards now disposed of sufficient arms, and were able to organise themselves in battalions. Their name varied; first they called themselves the revolutionary militia, then the Red Guard, and finally the People's Guard. From Tiflis they spread themselves over the whole of Georgia. They constituted a volunteer army of tried Socialists, and numbered about 30,000 men. Only a part of them were armed in time of peace, the majority being on furlosugh, and following their callings. If the Republic had been in danger, they would have been called up by the General Staff, supplied with arms, and allotted to their places. The constitution of the Guard was democratic. Its affairs were decided by Congresses, to which every 200 men sent a delegate. The Guard belonging to a district selected its officers. Likewise1, the General Staff is chosen for one year. Its Supreme Commander was Valike Jugeli, who was the leader in the bold sroke of the 12th December, 1917. The Guard was not under the control! of the War Minister, but of the President of the Republic. 95
