R?SS FACTORY SITUATION IS MUCH BETTER Production Increases, Says One Writer; .Another Disputes Him. Amsterdam. Aug. ll-Two divergent article? In tbe German pre** on the situation In Ruaala give a contrasting picture of economic conditions there and seem to Indicate that confusion prevail* In Oermany aa well aa in the allied nation? regarding tbe actual state of affairs. Th? Berlin Tageblatt gives a rosy picture of Russian economic condi tions, declaring th? worker? every where are obeying orders of their superiora and regulating Industry, There are now three type* of fac tories In Russia, says the Tageblatt; those ?till privately-owned, whose sur plus earnings ara turned into the pub lic treasury; those that bave been turnad over to the public, but are operated by local councils of working men; those now public property. In which operations have been central lied for th? whole nation. fbat Thirty Paper Milla. To this third group belong paper mill?, sugar mill* and tobacco fac tories under this head. Increase of production is now being striven for and In many case* realised. Formerly there were forty-three paper mills In Russia, of whlcb thirteen produced eighty per cent, of all the paper mad*. Therefore the other thirty factories have been closed and a new organisa tion haa been created to operate the thirteen productive one*. The ?ame form of organisation I* being extended to the Iron Industry. The union at Makejerka was produc ing only 1.044 tona of coal a day dur ing the Kerensky revolution. Now. although the number of miner? has decreased from 20.000 to 13.000, tbe union 1? raising 1.674 tona a day. The locomotive department of the Sormovo factory, which made ?even engine* a month under the csar, made only four a month under the first revolution: it haa Increased to six 'under the soviet government. These figure?, ?ay? the Tageblatt. ?how* that the Russian? have *uc ceeded in remedying the deplorable industrial situation. The Internationale Korrespondent, organ of the "Jingo" wing of the Social Democrats, prints an article written by a German who was in Mos cow In June which pictures conditions less rosily. >? Law Ia tbe J.amt. He say? there 1? no longer any central government or any law In Russia, and that the days of the Bolshevik! are numbered. Trans portation conditions are indescribable. If a man wishes to ship a car of goods, he must first get a permit from the central government, then from the local government, and final ly from the railway administration. If ty does not bribe everyone, from the lowest to the highest, he gets no permit st all. If he doea get It, there is no certainty that the goods will be delivered. ? resumption of commerce to any extent, says this writer, is therefore impossible. Only 10 per cent of the working men are now employed, and where th* worker* have taken over the management of factories, they have produced chaos, he say*. Vast terri tories remain uncultivated because th* peasant* lack seed, horses and tool* to work the land. "All people, Including tbe poorest of the population, have no other wish than to be free from the present reign of terror." says th? corres pondent. PURELY PERSONAL. W. H.
