San - Aijtonia, Tex., Dec. 2.
Wholesale raids by the Department
of Justice o'fticials conducted simul
taneously Monday af various border
points, including El Paso, Eagle
Pass, Laredo, Brownsville, and this
city netted a mass of documentary
evidence of the formation on this
side of the border of a new revolu
tionary movement against the Obre-
gon government in Mexico, accord
ing to a statement made here to
night by W. A. Wiseman, special
agent for the Department of Justice.
According to Mr. Wiseman, the
raids were ordered by Division Su
perintendent C. E. Breniman, with
headquarters here, and the evidence'
secured is being collected in the of-
lice of the local federal bureau of
investigation. Department of Justice
agents here are known to be busy
translating documents seized during
the raids and a number of arrests
are expected to follow. .
, Among the documents obtained
are several manifestoes announcing
the aims and purposes of the new
"reformista" movement," the. leaders
of which are expected to be caught
in the federal dragnet.
Lucio Blanco, former Carranzista
general, is the head of the new revo
lutionary movement, according to the
belief in local Mexican circles.

Within walls built high by years of war and revolution, behind doors close-guarded
by Trotzky's soldiers, the Russian treasure-house awaits the adventurer with the key of gold.
"In the south there are millions d bushels of wheat awaiting export, and oil wells have been
running unchecked so long that they have had to fcak them up and form lakes of oil." "There
is 1,000,000 worth of timber lying at Archangel and other ports on the "White Sea." The Si-'
berian seaboard contains "probably the world's greatest undeveloped coal and oil deposits,
with the fishing off coast equal to that of Alaska." '
While it is all very well, agree some American editors, for the Soviet Government to
open the doors of the Muscovite treasure-house, what if the treasure-house is empty? And,
referring to the British trade agreement with Soviet Russia, recently announced . by Premier
Lloyd George, the New York Tribune declares that "to take Lenine and his system into fellow
ship is to abandon those in Russia who fought for civilization and democratic ideals."
.Facts that will awaken mingled feelings of wonder, resentment, and satisfaction are
presented in the striking article in this week's number of THE LITERARY DIGEST, December
4th. It reflects the opinion of the American press upon Lloyd George's propdsal to resume trade
relations with Russia. y .
