Chargé Eddy to the Secretary of State.


(Mr. Eddy reports that the American consuls at Riga and Rostoff have asked for military protection. The same has been asked for and has been obtained for Riga and will also be given to the consulate at Rostoff. The consul at Odessa reports that severe conflicts between Jews and Russians were begun by the Jews. The fighting is still going on and probably thousands of the Jews were killed. American interests at that place are not threatened. The situation at Warsaw is serious. Conflicts continue between the Poles and the Russian army. At Moscow everything is quiet. The people have resumed work at St. Petersburg. A large meeting occurred to-day without conflict after the funeral service of those killed in recent disturbances. Large crowds assembled, composed principally of sightseers. Important concessions have been made to Finland.)
