"The Cossacks have little chance of'
conquering Petrograd or Moscow, or
of overthrowing the republic," Mr.
Michael Pargment of the French de-
partment said yesterday, in comment-
ing upon the Russian situation.
"The four socialist parties in Russ-
ia, beginning with the Anarchists and
ending with the Socialist Democrats-
Minimalists, and even the cadet party,
although they are now fighting each
other, will surely unite against the
Cossacks in order to insure constitu-
tional freedom for their country. The
.Socialists have full control of the
railroads and almost all other utilities
in Russia, and the Cossacks will cer-
tainly not move as fast as some peo-
ple seem to expect or hope."
Cossacks Hate Republicans
Mr. Pargment referred to the Cos-
sacks as a part of the population who
hate the Republicans and their cause,
and who are in return hated by the
Democratic parties of Russia. He said:
"Servants and hirelings of the czar,
defenders of the bloody throne, the
Cossacks were the most terrible in-
strument of oppression in the hands
of the Russian monarch. They have
struck down relentlessly every move-

in Russia who do not have a mar
at least a rememlrance of the bur
blows of the "Nagaika" wielded
the Cossacks. In 1905 and 1906
example, under the orders of Ren
kampf, they whipped thousands
peasant, men and women alike.
Czar's Will Is Supreme
"It was a known rule in the a
of the czar," Mr. Pargment contir
"that a soldier should kill his n
er and father, sister, or brothe
such be the will of the ruler, and
Cossack executed his order in the
terrible exactness.
Cossacks Unmereiful
"The Cossacks are robbed of p
tically all feeling of relationship,
have never spared anybody. Be
the revolution, when a group of t
appeared on the streets, ever
knew death was coming: deat:
everyone who dared to stay in
way, the innocent, the hungry, an
pecially those who were thirsty
a drink of freedom. No one ever si
to them when they passed; they
always accompanied with curses.
when, for the first time, in M
1917, the blow of the Cossack's sw
instead of falling upon the head
brother, fell upon that of the Rui
hangmen, Russia did not believ
possible."

Tyranny Is Motto cc
Mr. Pargment cited one of the Cos- C
sacks' proverbs: "A Cossack sleeps nE
wherever he finds a good place," and of
said that this group is looking only for
personal liberty, for freedom of the
body from restrictions of toil or pov-
erty, for license and pleasure. ci
May Cause Civil War e:
"The Cossacks," he said, "are such W
a suspicious element to the Russian th
people, that the slightest attempt on la
the part of the Cossacks, to obtain pow- to
er will be considered as a counter-rev-
olution and will cause civil war. In
fact, I am almost certain that behind -'
the Cossacks there is somewhere in
readiness a czar, a candidate of Ger.
many. It is not a Lenine that Ger-
many wants; it is a czar.
Arrest of Purishkevitch Signiflcant
"The recent arrest of Vladimir
Purishkevitch in connection with a
letter written by him to the Cossack's
general, Kaledines, is one of the dark-
est symptoms from this point of view.
For, Purishkevitch is not only a mem-
ber of the Duma, as the telegrams re-
