Pans, Juno 18. Apnrt from tho Rus
ilan gold which Gregory Krasslne, Bol
ihpvlk Minister of Ways and Communi
cations who la now In kondon, considers
only ns exportable merchandise and not
lubject to tlio objections to its ubo ad
nnced by French creditors, of tho
ancient Russian regime, Krasslno has
told tlio corrcapondent of tlio Liberte
Hint thcro Is enough material ready for
shipment from Russia to reduce sub
ilantlally tho high cost of living through
out Europe.
Among the Items that Krnsslno Is
ready to offer. If Lloyd George extends
tho hand tif friendship to tho Soviets,
are 15,000,000 tons of grain, 3,000,000
tons ot gnsolenc, Immense supplies of
'timber, 5,000,000 tons of flax, eliccpsklna
and fine lenthers, 3,000 tons of cavlcr,
valuablo quantities of resin, turpentine,
calt pork. Knit, manganese, iron, graphite
and tobacco,
"Hut If tho Allies sincerely want to
profit from our rlchee, why do they not
nccord a sort ot moratorium for our
debts until peaco Is concluded?" re
marked Krnsslno ntter Insisting that
jtussla was unwilling to give guarantees
that she would not employ her gold re
nerve In commercial transactions with
ether countries. Ho suggests that mean
while commercial relations be directed
through a central clearing houso In
Copenhagen under the form of a char
tered company of which the Interested
nations should hold the stock, thereby
enabling tho Allies to auporvlso closely
ill exportatlons.
Krasslne contends that Russia Is un
able to repair her locomotives and must
tend them abroad as tho technical na
ture ot the work Is too dellcato to at
tempt until Internal conditions are Im
proved. As soon as peace Is obtained
Ilussla will need foreign capital and
labor especially for the development of
her complex Industries, and he has re
ceived the assurance of the Soviet load
ers that they will grant Important con
cessions where they aro necessary.
"For example, wo will guarantee the
development rights to foreigners In the
i-elluloso Industry, In the paper mills
traffic of the Volga and Don, supple
menting charters by profit sharing con
tusions to persons exporting natural
products from Russia."
In brief, Krasslno's visit to London Is
distinctly one of conciliation, but ho will
pot compromise the commercial advan
tages by any. agreement likely to affect
the Soviets' power In their own country.
"Hut If you want to wage war against
Russia don't expect to defeat us by
hunger. We have restricted pur needs
to the simplest expression, but wo are
ready for even greater sacrifices," de
clared the Soviet envoy, explaining the
Inability of Russia to maintain her In
dustrial life by tho statement that the
needs of the Red army arc paramount
but ns soon as peace Is restored the
Russian people will return to work as
diligently as before th war.

Decides Unanimously to Sup
port Lifting of Blockade
Against Reds.
Brussels, June IS. At a Cabinet
Council It was decided unanimously thnt
Belgium should"" favor in principle tho
lifting of the blockade upon Soviet Rus
sia and that an attempt should be made
to resume economic relations, with reser
vations, however, concerning Belgian
rights in Russia. King Albert presided
over tho session.
News of tho decision caused great sur
prise, Foreign Minister Hymnns but a
few hours before having officially denied
that Belgium would take part In tho con
versations being held nt London with
Gregory Krasslne, Bolshevik Minister of
Trade and Commerce. It is understood
the Socialist Ministers Insisted thnt Bel
glum abandon the French point of view
on tho subject" In favor ot the British.
Premier Lloyd George announced in
the House of Commons yesterday that
Belgium, together with Japan, had In
timated her intention ot taking part in
tho conversations looking to the resump
tion of economic relations with Russia.
London, June 18. The mystery sur
loundlng rental by Gregory Krasslne,
the Bolshevik Minister ot Trade and
Commerce, of quartera In the modish
West End shopping district was cleared
up to-day when it was learned the All
Russian Cooperative Society. Ltd., had
been officially registered with a capital
of $75,000.
Organizers of the new company are
said to be M. Krasslne, M. Rosovsky
and M. Nogln. but the names of Kras
slne nnd Nogln do not appear in tho list
of registered directors, those named be
ing M. Rosovsky, B. Crysln nnd Mme.
V. Polovsev. The objects of tho com
pany are "to act as representees of co
opoiatlve organizations carrying on
business in Russia and elsewhere and
to promote and develop the business of
general Import and export'merchants."
Former executives of the London head
quarters of the cooperative organization
characterize the directors of tho new
company as "traitors to the cooperative
movement," saying they havo manoeu
vered Into places of authority in tho
cooperative organization for tho purpose
of 'engineering eventual Soviet control
of this agency. They maintain- the new
company constitutes a menace to the old
Organizations which are engaging In re
munerative trado.
Following the first meeting yesterday
of Krasslne and the permanent commit
tee of the Supreme Economic Council, a
cryptic official communique Indicates
tho negotiations are moving slowly. It
Is believed that any future meeting will
depend on the result of Krasslne's tele
graphic exchanges with Moscow on the
points discussed. Great Britain, France,
Italy and .Belgium were represented at

mission of fivo or seven men whose task
it would be to study tho entire European
economic life and make recommenda
tions to European Parliaments Is pro
posed by Krnst Schmltt, an expert on
economic policy In the Foreign Office, In
a booklet entitled "Europe's Reconstruc
tion. Schmltt had at Versailles dur
ing the peace negotiations a position in
tho German delegation similar to that
of Prof. Keynes, author of ''The Eco
nomic Consequences of the Peace," In
the British delegation.
After condemning tha present slip
shod, Irregular practlco of trying to
solvo European questions in short meet
ings, Dr. Schmltt suggests that first
there bo put together a council upon,
the board basis. In which all desires
can be discussed In open meeting, and,
second, a permanent commission com
posed of tho greatest authorities In Eu
rope, which should be made responsible
for the analysis of the entire economic
problem In Its various aspects, social,
commercial and financial. It Is then to
formukito suggestions to the parlia
ments which, although not binding,
would have to be discussed. This com
mission also should have1 the privilege
of negotiating directly with the govern
ments ns to th necessary measures.
It would not have any actual work,
but It would spur on the existing cor
porations and stimulate the founding Of
new ones. Ho would leave the choice
of a seat for the composition of the gen
eral council to the great Powers or the
League of Nations.

International Conference in

Genoa, June 18, A motion for tho
admission of American delegates to the
International Beamen's Conference, de
splto the fact that the United States has
not yet declared Its adhesion to the
League of Nations, was presented to the
conference to-day by Slg. Qlgllo, dclegato
of tho Italian seamon.
It was decided to discuss this motion
within the next two days.
The motion also claimed tho admis
sion of representative seamen from
every nation without permission or par
ticipation of their governments, claiming
tho discussions were of vital Import to
the seamen of tho world and that they
theroforo wero entitled to participate
even If their governments failed to send
The usual calm of the meeting was
abruptly shattered when tho motion was
presented by Slg. Ulgllo. Baron des
Planches, chairman of tho .conference,
declared participation of representatives I
of American seamon In the conferonco
would be useless unless the .Washington
Government also was represented, as
the seamen alone could not make any
pledge on behalf of their Government.
After a rather heated discussion tho rep

Urges Adequate Representa

Bv the Attoclated Vrtn.
Tun Haouk, Juno 18. Tlio jurists
composing the commission for the per
manent Court of Justice who nre en
deavoring to draft a plan for a world
court for submission to the League of
Nations plunged to-day into an Inde
pendent discussion ot what they consid
ered tho most Important question, the
manner of tho selection of Judges Tho
problem which Involves the rights of
small as compared with large nations
probably will occupy several days In
threshing out
Ellhu Boot, representing America,
spoko on this question Ho pomtcd out
tho Importance of deciding how small
nations should bo adequately repre
sented on tho panel of Judges. Dr.
George Hagerup of Norway ronlended
that It was advisable that all nations,
great and small, should have an equal
volco and vote In the selection of tho
Judge. Tho Jurists seemed convinced
thnt the small States might be loath to
participation In a court dominated by
larger States.
Generally speaking, Mr. Hoot takes
the stand that tho Supreme Court of
the United States, which Is not elected
but appointed, and functions without
political control, should be the basis of
the world court. In a speech to-uay ne
explained that the problemn confronting
the Jurists were comparable to the tasks
of the leaders ot the thirteen American
States drawing up tho Constitution where
they had to assuage tho fears that the
smaller Stotea would bo swallowed by
tho large ones.

Lloyd Georgo Says All Powers
Except U. 8. Aro Too Much
Points to Uussia in Explaining
Lack of Economic Pressure"
on Uclligcrcnts.
London, June 18. Tho official report
of tho Interview which Prvrnler Lloyd
(leorgo had on Wednesday with dele
Bates of the Lcagua to Abolish War
shows the deputation received cold com
fort. Mr. Lloyd George's nrnument was
that tho Kreat Powers, except tho United
Statea, already had too many entangle-,
mcnts to bo able to supply forces to the
lcaguo to 'create an International police
force lariro enoiiKh to coerce, for In
stance, Russia or Poland. IIo admitted
tho ideas of Viscount Grey and President
Wilson for an International force wero
possible Ideals, but said they wero Im
practicable at the present time. They
might, he added, become moro praatlcal
If tho United Stntes later decided to
enter, but It would bo Idle to go Into dis
cussion with the United Stntes now.
A controversy arose between George
Nicoll Barnes,, former Minister without
portfolio, nnd tho Premier, tho former
complaining that no pressure had been
applied to Poland. Mr. Lloyd Georgo
retorted with tho assertion that three
great' Powers from tho very table at
which they were seated made repre
sentations to Toland before her attack
on Ilussla was started, but without ef
fect. Asked why economic prcssuro was not
applied, 'tho Premier replied: "Such
pressure has already been applied to a
point where the HusbIoii people are
starving; It Is Impossible to apply It
The Premier contended the same prin
ciples applied to Armenia nnd the Dar
danelles. "It Is Impossible," ho stated,
"for tho league to call Into being forces
already existing. What would happen
If you asked America or France to sup
ply troops and they refused?"
Questioned why the league had not
established control over the Dardanelles,
Mr. Lloyd Georgo pointed out that
France nnd Italy had been unablo to
spare tho forces which they engaged o
supply to control the waterway. "Must
we go to war with Franco nnd Italy to
compel them to keep their obligations?"
he asked.
Mr. Balfour asked tho deputation
where tho League's international foroc
was to be kept should It be St. Helena,
or perhaps Laborndor? Certainly, he
declared, If It wero kept In' France It
would not fight France, nnd If kept In
England It would not fight England.

from possible total destruction by lire.
Tho Klyo Mnru, which left Valparaiso

No language is expressive enough to better
