of Industry and production under the
Russia's economic collapse, according
to reliable reports to Secretary
Hoover, who, as head of the
American Relief forces, is undertaking
to aid the starving people of
that country is traced primarily to
the fact that industry there has decreased
90 per cent as compared to
the prewar period.
Reports from reliable sources to
lir. Hoover shoy In striking figures
Russia's economic plight.
Predaettaa Greatly Redaeed.
Industrial production during the
year 1920 in percentages compared
u> prewar output was as follows:
Pig iron. 2 per cent; copper ore,
0.6 per cent; iron ore 2 per cent;
manganese ore. 1.6 per cent; salt, 15
per cent; rubber Industry. 5 per
cent; watch industry. 15 per cent;
paper Industry, 20 per cent; sugar
industry, 5 per cent; printing, 15
per cent; production of coal. 20 per
cent; cotton spindles operating. 3
per cent; woolen cloth. 4 per cent.
Before undertaking to reply to
Maxim Gorky's appeal for relief to
the starving Russians, Mr. Hoover
:ook occasion to inquire closely into
actual conditions and reports received
indicate that the most acute
famtae area covers the Volga Valley
from the Caspian Sea northward.
The drought in this area would not
be of such fatal character but for
'.he general decadence of agriculture
reduction of surplus in other regions
and in the decay of transportation.
rendering most difficult the
movement of such local sornluses as
do still exist
Smaller Area* Cultivated.
Examples of reports from the
irougttt area shows the province of
samara sowing this spring only 58
ber cent of the acreage cultivated
year. In the province of Kazan,
fc.900 acres usually cultivated were
lot sown at all. To the west of the
k'olga Valley less than 50 per cent
61 the arable territory in the province
of Orel was sown, and in the
province of Tula only 20 to 35 per
rent of the necessary seed for sowing
Overriding such local situations
theVe has been a steady decline in
agricultural production ever since
,lhe revolution owing to the lack of
incentive to farmers to provide for
Inore than their own needs, to the
Shortage of seed and shortage of
Implements. The urban population
[has produced little to offer in exchange
and the currency reprecla,tion
through the increase of currency
issues to over 1,000.000,000 of
[roubles has rendered their accumulation
no attraction. From these
(causes Russia, before even last
year's harvest had declined from a
state producing from 6.000,000 to
10.000,000 tons of food for export to
a condition where there was such an
Insufficient supply of food for the
:ities that the urban population has
been reduced by about one half.
Grata Crept Mark Smaller.
An indication of diminished grain
?rops in lt21 is offered by the quantites
estimated to be requisitioned
as taxes by the Soviet government.
The total amount for all Soviet Russia,
except the Ukraine and Turkestan,
is 4.320,000 tons of grain, as
against 7,614.000 tons in 1320. The
potatoes estimated to be requisitioned
this year amount to 1,080,000
tons as compared with 2,016,000 tons
in 1920; 216,000 tons of ail seeds are
to be requisitioned instead of 432,9o0
tons in 1920. The number of
provinces where any surplus is indicated
for removal to other provinces
appears to have decreased
from over twenty prewar to not
more than four.
There has been such deterioration
?f transportation that there is doubt
is to ability to move the local surpluses
that do exist in the richer

polls In the State primaries did net
close until nearly 7:30 '.n Virginia,
and up to 8:30 o'clock there were
few returns. Reports were mad*
to the headquarters of the canaldates
for the governorship, however,
and these we'e *uch a
character as to leave the situation
generally in doubt.
The first precinct to report was
on? in Henrico County which gave
Trinkle 20 and Tucker 13. The vote
in this , city was heavier than expected.
Many women voted. The
belief was that a vast majority of
the women had voted for Senator
Trinkle and if that proves to be
so there is little question as to
the result. The Tucker people were
not conceding anything.
Reports from the leading cities
of the State indicate a heavy vote,
with some artistic claims being
made as to the sixe ?f the majorities
that the candidates will receive.
The fight for lieutenant governor
was between Gunn and Gilpin, with
Gilpin the favorite at the outset.
There are four men in the race,
and it may be that Senator West
will make a strong showing. It
was not thought that W. B. Fitshugh
would make a showing in the
returns. E. C. Koikes, of this city,
candidate for the State corporation
commission in oppoqjtion to Berkley
D. Adams, was putting up a stronger
fight than was expected.
There were only three places on
the State ticket to be fljled, but
there were contests in many counties
and cities for the house and some
of these wei| understood to be
close. Only the vote from the cities
and towns were expected to be availCONTINUED

preserves sphinx-like silence on
Great Britain's peace proposals and
It is likely it will continue to do
so for another week or more.
Eamonn de Valera has consulted
practically all of his colleagues of j
Pail Kireann. as well as many local!
leaders of the Sinn Fein, and all
that remains to be done is to lay
the proposal* before a full meeting
of Dail Eireann.
This, a report from Dublin today
said, probably will be done sometime
this week or early next.
36 Members Await Release.
It has been definitely declared
that there will be no partial meeting
of the Dail, which means that
before such a momentous gathering
can take place the thlrty-stx
members now imprisoned or Interned
must be released.
Release of these men then will
b? the final signal that a crisis In
the negotiations ts approaching. /
Mr. de Valera refuses to ask formally
for their release beeause this,
h thinks, might bo construed as
acknowledgment of Great Britain's
right to imprison them, bcrt ft Is
an open secret here that Great
Britain is willing to waHre that
point and would consider an order
by De Valera summoning to a full
meeting the men In jail as a request
for their release.

had asked whether. In view of the
