Petrograd To Be
Saved By Soviet
Council of Labor
(Br Associated Press)
Reval, Esthonia, July 16 The
Russian Soviet Council of Labor and
Defense has taken urgent steps to
revive Petrograd, whicli even the
Bolsheviki themselves have recently
termed a "dying city."
Thousands of workmen, confronted
by starvation, and realizing that
Moscow was favored over Petrograd
in the matter of food distribution,
have recently left the city, with the
result that scarcely enough man
power was left to operate what few
factories could be provided with fuel.
At a session of the All-Russian
Central Executive committee held in
Moscow a few days ago it was de
cided to give Petrograd preferential
privileges in regard to fuel and
transportation, to place Petrograd in
the same situation as Moscow with
reference to food supplies, to estab
lish a special district from which
food supplies should be drawn solely
for the use of Petrograd and to en
join all of Russia to come to the aid
of Petrograd in the matter of food
and fuel supply. A special commission,-
headed by Premier Lenine and
including Zinovieff, Governor of Pe
trgrad, was named to carry out the
It was declared that only one-sixth
of the pre-war number of industrial
enterprises were in operation in Pe
trograd. The population is said to
number less than 700,000, a little
more than a third of the pre-war
The committee also decided to in
clude Petrograd to a greater extent
than had been contemplated, in the
general electrification scheme.

Profligate Spending
In Vieina Startles
Even Americans
- (By Associated Press)
Vienna, July 16 The astounding
amount of ready money circulating
in Austria was illustrated by the re
cently concluded sale of the rare
furnishings of Klessheim- Palace, one
of the residences of the Archduke
Ludwig Victor. It netted many mil
lion crowns and the newspapers say
the purchasers were virtually all
newly rich' Viennese.
Many professional collectors and
buyers from France, England and
America came here for the sale but
declared they could not compete with
the native bidders who ran prices up
into millions as nonchalantiv as if
bidding in hundreds. Dollars, pounds
and Francs they said were out of the
running. Several rare Gobelins
brought from 1,000,000 to 1,500,000
crowns each.
The Vienna Derby just run was
another illustration of the money
plentitude. About 30,000 persons
attended and the receipts of the bet
ting machines alone was 4,500,000

without the use of medicines.
The Article misquoted Mr. Hyde,
who is suffering from paralysis agi-
