A Bolshevik Congress held at Moscow last Saturday ratified the

Peace Treaty with the Central Powers. At the same time, with that amazing inconsistency which has marked all their doings, the Bolsheviks expressed their belief to the correspondent of the Daily N ews that the Russian Revolution could only be saved if the Western Allier, went on fighting. M. Lenin and his Anarchists have shown violent hostility to Great Britain and have prostrated themselves before the German Emperor. Yet they now expect us to go on fighting Germany, and thus save them from the consequences of their own crimes and follies. This seems to us the very limit of impudence. The Allies will indeed continue the war to free the world from German tyranny, but not to protect the cowardly and treacherous Bolsheviks, but for whom the war might be ending.
