AMONG other contradictions of false allegations, the Press publishes the following news, supplied by the Pat Agency:

1. The Vice-Voïvode of Silesia, M. Malhomme, accused by the German wireless stations of having ordered the maltreatment of women and children, has been seriously ill for a month and is under treatment at Warsaw;

2. Plundering by bands of insurgents in Silesia is a complete invention. Captain Blacha, who is alleged to be leading them, has been dead two years.
