"The demands which the railroads
are being called upon to meet are
greatly in excess of their combined
facilities," he .said, "There is an ex
isting unsupphed demand for 800,
000 freight cars alone. Railroad
men have admitted that every loco
motive plant in the country would
have to work at capacity for three
years to enable the railroads to even
catch up with 'the actual demands
now made upon them
It will thus be seen that the rail
roads are physically unable to meet
the transportation demand of this
new era. Ut this work the water
ways must perform an important
share. And in assisting the water
ways to assume a considerable nor

Washington, April 19. While the
United States still refuses to ' let
down the bars restraining American
commerce with, Russia, British,
traders, with the help of their gov
ernment are proceeding to get in
on the ground floor. That the British
are not permitting fear of soviet con
tamination or German machinations
to interfere with their quest for
1 profitable trade, is disclosed by the
! State department in a statement set
ting forth some of its information
concerning the soviet negotiations
with the British. .
The negotiations for an exchange
of goods between England and Rus
sia are going forward at Copen
hagen, where on April 7, M. Kras
sin. soviet commissioner of transpor
tation, and a party of bolsheviki met
a British treasury delegation headed
by Edmund' Wise.
, Notorious Individual.
Tiie State department regards
Krassin as a notorious individual
prominently identified with "Ger
mans interested in the exploitation
of soviet Russia." '
"He is a former German subject
and upon the outbreak of the world
war became ,a Russian representing
German interests,1 sayS the S,tate
department. "He was arrested at
Viborg in 1907 by the. czar's govcrn
rnent on the charge of revolutionary
activities, was imprisoned, liberated
and subsequently granted amnesty
by Russia, while be was working at
Bcrlhl in the Simens , Schuchurkt
factory, a German concern closely
connected with other important Ger
man interests in Russia. He estab
lished at Petrograd a branch of that
factory and was chief director of
the branch. He is a close friend and
adviser of Nlcolai Lenine, president
of the council of the people's com
missioners, the -principal governing
body of soviet Russia.
Identified With Reds.
"Krassin has been closely -connected
with Ulman, a German prom
inent in the Siemen's Schuchurkt
factory. He became Russian soviet
commissar and took charge of the
quartermaster's department of the
red armtf 'simiilfanpniislv with thi
appointment, of Furstenberg Ganet
zki, the German -agent of a great
Rhenisn industrial combine, and a
director of the state bank of soviet
Russia. Krassin sent Ulman to Ber
lin to offer the German Deutsche
bank concessions on the Murman
Petrograd railroad, i
Krassin was once bolshevik com
missar of commerce and trade and
originated the 10 and 12-hour work
ing day plan in soviet Russia. In
February, 1919, the employes of the
Nicholas railway station at Petro
grad requisitioned cars consigned
from the Ukraine to the German as
sociation at Petrograd and four of
these employes were later shot and
the provisions recovered Upon the
insistence of Krassin. The council
of commissars upheld a report which
he made in favor of employment of
a large- number of German laborers

Minnesota Executive Tell
Why He Did Not Grant Ex
tradition Papers to Omaha.
"Omaha police must be convinced
by this time that the Finn brothers
of St. Paul were not implicated in
the robbery of the Farmers Mer
chants bank- at Benrfon," declared
Gov. J. A. A. Burntiuist, of Minne
sota, who arrived in Omaha yester
day. . v
. Omaha police authorities made
tTiree unsuccessful attempts to ex
tradite George and Mike Finn from
St. Paul to Oma'ha, to answei
charges of highway robbery. They
charged their, failure to secure ex
tradition papers was due fo the hos
tile attitude of Governor Burnquist
and other St. Paul authorities. .
"The Finn brother brought in 40
or 50 witnesses who swore that they
wcte not in Omaha at the time of
the robbery," Governor Burnquist
asserted yesterday. , "I knew some
of these witnesses and was con
vinced that they were, right, . but
I broke all prudent and gave the
Onialifl authorities 3U days to pro
duce proof that the frinns were in
Omaha at the time of the robbery.
"At the end of 30 days they Had
failed to produce any evidence, so I
refused to grant extradition. In
spite of the fact that a charge of
highway robbery is still on file here
against the Finn brothers, I am
convinced that police in Omaha
know they had the wrong informa
