Till', well known Russian
publicist, M. Alexander
Amfiteatrov, contributes to the
issue of The .Ycv Europe, publish
ed on November 16, an article
under the title of "I lammct anil
Steel : A Russian View of the
War." At the outset he quotes
a line from Pushkin, "Russia's
greatest poet," which, he says,
has become a favourite politics!
proverb in the Russia of to day.
"A heavy hammer shivers glass
but forges steel." The hammer
is Germany, the steel Russia.
The hand of William [I,says
M. Amfitealiov, has once again
struck Rxssin with the smashing
hammer of Teutonism. It was
to splinter us like glass, but in
stead of that, it encountered all
the integrity, solidity, elasticity
and Subtleness of steel ready for
furnace And he power -if en-
ergy and resistance in this mass
of Russian steel increases with
every smashing bluw of the
hammer. 'It hints the anvil,
but not less the hammer," says
another Russian proverb . .
He.ice all these overtures for
peace.
These overtimes, M, Amfiien
trov shows, have lia I no success
in Russia. The (leiman emis-
saries console themselves by
spreading rumours of a separate
pence and they are assisted by
the ignorance of Russia which
prevails in the rest of Europe.
M Amfiteatrov goes on to
show that I be war is a popular
war in the fullest sense of the
woid. In Russia it is called
"the second war for the Father-
laud" (the first was in 1812) ;
but it is far more serious and
responsible than the first, not
only by reason of its conn'
victims and the effort involved,
but also by its whole political
and historical psychology. Tsar
Nicholas II., as chief of .1 pn|U
lar war, occupies a far safer
anil more favourable position
than that of his ancestors, Alex
andei I., wno led the war for
the Fatherland, mid Alexander
II, who led tfie war fur the
liberation of the Balkans Shu 19
I'od 1'y we are '" inducting a wai
for our own liberation from that
German yoke which dates back
to the Holy Alliance.
After an eloquent vindication
of the patriotic attitude during
the war of "the groups of the
Extreme Left" in Russia|
"there is not a single leader of
note or reputation in the history
of the Russian revolution who
has not thrown in his lot with
the nation in its struggle against
Germany" M. Amfiteatrov
makes this declaration :
Thus the 1 ierman hammer, in
stead of shattering us into frag
ments of glass, i>. forging nu
old discord into finest steel
bringing together iii a common
national aim the most distant
groups of political life and
and thought. And, how
ever the anvil may groan under
the blows of (iermany .... wc
shall keep it up till the worn
and useless hammer falls in
splinters.
Till then no true Russian can
accept the idea of peace. ,.
Today we are still at the com-
mencement of the struggle . .
Serbia and Belgium are not yet

Poland are still not executed.
The enemy still treads the

Hundreds of English victims

in face of this popular deter-

has done wonders but tied as
he was to a system that was
a constant handicap his posi-

British papers just to hand
m to shed a tilth light on
the events which led to the
change of Government in
England. It is evident that
the country had come to the
conclusion that the Asquith
Ministry was not doing as
Well as it might in the con
duct of the War and demand
ed better iesults. It is said
that Mr. Lloyd George had
been reluctant to become
Secretary for War on the
death of Lord Kitchener be-
cause he knew that the cus
tom of passing all important
matters through a large Cab-
inet Council would cause de-
lay and lead to perilous
modifications of pi licy. He
seems to hav. kickt '1 against
this cumbrous method of
handling business and to
have resigned. It is also said
that the Unionist members
of the Cabinet backed him
and so prevented a recon-
struction of the Cabinet with
Mr. AtOuith at its head. The
fall of Hukarest, the insulting
perfidy of King Constantine
and Lne seeming stateness of
the Admiralty all combined
