THE BRITISH-RUSSIAN PACT
Great Britain, in resuming rela
tions with Soviet Russia after a five
year interval, is in much the same
case as the United States. That is
she also has large claims against the
Soviet for debts incurred by previous
Russian Governments, as well as
claims for property of British citl
zens seized by the Bolsheviks. Ou
statesmen cite these claims as a rea
son for not recognizing Russia, but
Great Britain takes the opposite
view. She believes the best way to
collect them is to negotiate and the
best way to negotiate is to exchange
duly accedited Ambassadors who have
power to act for their Governments
So Great Britain's recognition, far
from signifying abandonment of her
claims, opens the way to a Bettle
That, however, fs only one objec
tive of the Labor Government. It is
even more interested in Russia's po
tentialities as a customer for British
goods. Russia is in the buying mar
ket. The Soviet is founding new in
dustries and rejuvenating old ones
it is transforming agriculture by dis
placing primitive tools with tractors
and threshing outfits. A vast, semi-
barbarous country is being adjusted
to the Machine Age.
Great Britain is in desperate need
of markets for her products. What
could be more logical than that the
British should cultivate this power
ful customer? The British have al
ways been like that. It is their
quickness to seize opportunities that
is responsible for the Empire. In the
present instance, an accord with
Russia is vital because Russian pur
chasers have already shown a fond
ness for the American market and
Great Britain hopes to lure them
away before it is too late.
In 1927 the United States exported
goods valued at 64,000.000 to Rus
sia. We did in that year more than
twice as much business with Russia
as we did in the average year before
the war. Great Britain's exports to
Russia, on the other hand, have dim
inished since 1924, when relations
were broken off. British exports of
J62.000.000 In 1925-1926, dwindled
to 148,000,000 in 1926-1927, and to
$23,000,000 in 1927-1928. In the
meantime, English importB from Rus
sia increased, resulting in a trade
balance markedly unfavorable to
These figures illustrate forcibly
why one of the first acts of Ramsay
MacDonald's Government waa to ne
gotlate with the Soviet, especially
since by a 1918 decree the Soviet
monopolized foreign trade. The de
cree reads: "Transaction for the pur
chase and sale of all products with
foreign states . . . are concluded in
the name of the Russian Republic
by specially empowered representa
tives." That means that the Soviet

Results of the state election In Vir

turn of reason in the Old Dominion.
Virginia disgraced herself by go
ing Republican last year. A cam
paign of prejudice, religious intol
erance, and downright lying, led bp
Bishop James Cannon, Jr., resulted
n a defeat of the Democratic ticket.
Since that time, evidently, the vot
ers of Virginia have been repenting
n sackcloth and ashes, and the re
sult of the last election was not un
expected. Cannonism was repudiated.
and Virginia went Democratic by a
majority more than twice the size
of that which carried it into the Re
publican column in the presidential
election last year.
It was a big day for Democracy
almost everywhere. Jimmy Walker
was re-elected on a tidealwave, de
cisively defeating three strong op
ponents for the Mayoralty of New
York. A negro Republican seeking a
seat in Congress from New York City
went down in defeat. Chicago's Judi
cial election brought victory for a
Democratic coalition ticket. Demo
cracy repulsed a Republican drive to
capture the Kentucky legislature, and
in upstate New York there was a gain
of two Democratic members for the
lower house of the legislature. In
municipal contests in Indiana Demo
crats were uniformly victorious.
All in all, it looks like there is still
little life left in the Democratic
party. Its obituary has been written
many times, but it refuses to stay

If proof were needed that the tar
iff has degenerated info a system of
spoils that proof is furnished in the
story of manganese.
If proof were needed of the hypo
crisy of the Grundys who profess to
regard the tariff as "almost a relig
ion," and evalt the protective policy
as the shield and buckler of Amer
ican DrosDerity. that proof is fur
nished in the story of manganese.
Manganese is used in the manu
facture of steel; that is its biggest
commercial value, though, of course,
it had many other uses. Before the
World War most of our manganese
came from Russia. There was prac
tically no production in the United :
States. The war cut off the Russian
supply. Known deposits in the Unit
ed States were negligible in quantity
and of inferior quality. The need of
this metal, however, was so urgent
that an intensive and extensive cam
paign of prospecting was launched.
Manganese was found in 21 states.
The blue-sky boomers reaped a har
vest, but the fact remains that an
American industry, unborn in 1914,
was a pretty promising stripling m
1917. The year we entered the war
the United States produced 120,000
tons of managenese.
That was far from sufficient for
our steel Industry. Our production
is still inadequate. Nevertheless,
manganese is mined successfully in

One of the 15 sensational improvements offered
by the 1930 "Red Line" Delco-Light is a larger
and heavier armature. It brings you higher
efficiency, smoother operation, longer life. And
yet it doesn't cost you a single penny extra.
And remember this is just one of the new
improvements offered exclusively by the 1930
"Red Line" Delco-Light. Until youVe seen this
mechanical marvel you will have no idea how
much more we're offering.

publicly that no tariff legislation
will be enacted by the present Con

Senate minority and the differences
betwen the Senate minority and the
House minority are deemd too great
to admit of adjustment by compro
mises in conference.
It Is conceded, however, that if
the garrilous Senate, by exercise of
self-control, should now adopt a
gentleman's agreement for the limita

would be able to pass a tariff meas
