HESUMPTION OF RELATIONS
WITH SOVIETE FAR OFF
Hughes Tells Gompers That U. S. Can.
not Resume Relations at Present
-Washington, April 17.-Secretary
Hughes, writing to Samuel Gompers,
president of the American Federation
of Labor, who asked for a statement
of "the facts" regarding Russia, ind
cates definitely that there is no pros
pect of at resumption of relations with
the United States while the Soviet 1)0
litical and economic system remains.
The letter of the secretary of state
makes direct reply to various state
ments characterized as 'propaganda,
which contend that resumption of re
lations, trade or political, .w-ith the
Soviets would open a igreat current of
trade of advantage to the United
States and that large shipments of
Russian gold- have already 'been made
to other countries in payment for

that the scarcity of goods in Russia Is
due to the blockade which was re
moved July 8, 1920, and the statement
that .the demand for manufactured
goods in Russia is so 'great and the
purchasing power of the Soviets so
vast that it is almost impossible to
determine the capacity of the Russian
market for imports Secretary Hughes
"Though there is almost no limit to
the amount and variety of commodi
ties urgently needed by Russia, the
purchasing power of that country is
now at a minimitm, and the demand

the present authorities of Russia have
tended to undermine its political and
economic relations with other coun
tries. The Russian people are unable
to obtain credit, which might other

wealth of Russia and are compnelled
to .be deprived of commodities imme

be overlooked that there has been a

"Restrictions on direct -t-rade with
Russia were removed by the United
States on July 8, 1920. The conclu
sion of treaties of peace with the Bal
tic states enabled Russia freely to en
ter upon01 trade with Europe andl the
United States. Bioth American and
European goodis have been sold to
Russia but the volume of trade has
been unimportant, due to the inaabil
ity of Russia to 'pay for imports.
"It is true that agents purporting
to be representatives of the so-called
Bolshevist commissariat of foreign
trade have placed immense orders for
the purchase of goods in the United
'States, Europe andl Asia. It is esti
malhtedl that perhaps six and one-half
billlon dollars' worth of orders have
been booked. But, shlipments as a re

only in small volume because the So
