In the various departments of the Mexi

and that the newly appointed cabinet

chiefly to the same men who conducted

Reports reaching Washington from

the military and tho railway operators
say it Is Impossible to maintain

less the cars are restored to them. Gen

sent on a tour of inspection of all the

Senator Hiram W. Johnson or Califor

"For more than a year the contest

usual political verbosity, but never

and clearly present tho question for

"The Republican party declared that
the President'. covenant failed signal

for an In lepcndont people, but certain
to produce an Injustice, hostility and

breeding war rather than promoting
peace, and re-afflrms the time honor

"The Democratic, party on the other

or qualify the President's proposed

in favor of the league as presented It
Is true that the Democrats, in effort
to placate, say they sanction reserva

more specific the obligations of the
United States, but the language Is
meaningless and does not at all alter
the essential position of the Democratic
party for the league a.s presented.
"The two parties acted in similar

Washington, July 7. (By the Associated
Presto-Restrictions on trade with Sov et
Russia were removed to-day by the Sta'o
department except In so far as they per.
tain to the shipments of materials susceut

An Individual export license must bo

Individual export licenses also will ho
required for the export to Russia or lo
comotives, railroad material and rolli s
stock and motor cars In component pait .
The State department's action wh In
taken Independently or other natlol s,
followed extensive exchanges betwrui
the United States and Great Brlta n
and France. It R believed to have been
hastened hy the recent negotiation be
tween Gregory Krassin, representing
the Holshevikl government and Pre
mier Lloyd George looking to the r -sumption
of trajc between Great Bri
tain nnd Russia,
In announcing its action the State
department took particular pains to
state that political recognition, present
or future, of any Russian authority ex
ercising nr claiming to exercise, govern
mental functions was neither gran ed
nor intended. It also emphasized that
individuals or corporations trading
with Russia would do so on their o n
rf sponsiblllty and at their own ri3l
as this covernment couM offer no pn.
tectlon to Americans going to Russia
or trading with Russia.
The statement was also made by tin
department that Indications were th 'f
Russia had only a small quantity of r iv
materials for export; that its purchasn g
power was very limited and that ran e.
quently there would not be any cons
erable trade with that country.

over that individuals or corporations

States can normally extend tojts citizens
who engage In trade or travel In sonio
