Russian Monarchists in U.S. Welcome Conflict

July 22, 1929
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

While Russian monarchist emigres in New York admitted frankly that they welcome the conflict between Soviet Russia and the Nationalist Government of China, seeing in it an opportunity to wage war on Soviet Russia a group of Communists demonstrated before the Chinese Consulate, 13 Astor Place, New York.

The former Czarist officers admitted in press interviews that “orders have come for every White Russian officer to hold himself in readiness for the call to service.”

The communist candidate for Mayor William Weinstone of 28 Union Square was freed after a hearing on disorderly conduct charges growing out of the demonstration in front of the office of S. S. Young, Consul General for China.

Weinstone, national secretary of the Workers Party, was given a suspended sentence. Two of the twelve arrested Nathaniel Kaplan, 2070 Davidson Avenue, the Bronx, and Adolph Stern of 944 – 47th Street, Brooklyn, were sentenced to five days in the workhouse.
