Mah Chan-Shan, sup porter of the Nationalist govern or, Wan Fu-Lin. Reaction of Soviet Awaited. Shanghai reports said fighting fol lowed upon Oeneral Mah's refusal to withdraw his soldiers to a point 10 kilo meters distant from the bridge, which they had dynamited during recent civil warfare The Japanese soldiers had proceeded to the Nonni River as a guard for a railroad crew assigned to repair the bridge. The Russian government had opposed ■ending Japanese trooos so far north ward In Manchuria, but the matter was arranged through diplomatic conversa tions in Moscow. Observers, however, awaited with interest the Russian re action to the battle at the bridge. V. S. Renews Efforts. At Oenevs. Dr. Alfred Sse, Chinas representative on the League of Na tions Council, said today Japanese troops had crossed the Nonni River and were attacking the Chinese Army north of the stream.

Donald Conn, managing director, said today that in the future concen- j trates will be sold only In stores. Pre viously agents had sold the products directly to the homes and had given aid in bottling the grape juice fer mented into wine. This action was taken, Conn said, partly as a result of the recent Kan sas City Court decision in the Ukiah Orape Products Co. case and partly to avert further criticism of the Farm Board, which has loaned Fruit Ind}is tries more than $2,000,000.

Vlneglo concentrates, which will be discontinued and substituted by three other brands, in the future may be j bought in stores in gallon lots and then must be prepared by the con- , sumer himself. Conn recently has been in confer ence with Farm Board officials and with Prohibition Director Woodcock. Vlneglo concentrates, he said, con stituted only 5 per cent of the organ ization s business.

November s.—Prime Min ister Ramsay MacDonald remains head of the British government In the new cabinet, with Stanley Baldwin lord i president of the council and Neville Chamberlain as chancellor of the ex ; chequer, succeeding Philip Snowden. The cabinet list was announced at No. 10 Downing street this evening. Bir John Simon, one of the country's greatest lawyers and leaders of one wing of the Liberal party which broke away from David Lloyd George, Is foreign secretary. Mr. Snowden, who retired as chan cellor of the exchequer hugely because of his failing health, remains In the cabinet at Lord Privy Seal. He succeeds Lord Sankey, who held that post in the emergency national cabinet and who becomes Lord Chan cellor In the new cabinet. Sir Samuel Hoare. Conservative, Is secretary of state for India and Sir Herbert Samuel, leader of another sec tion of the disrupted Liberal party, is home secretary. J. H. Thomas, elected on the National Labor ticket, becomes secretary for do minions and Sir Philip Cunliffe-Lister, Conservative, is secretary for colonies. The new secretary for air Is the Mar quis of Londonderry, Conservative. Sir Archibald Sinclair, Liberal, is secre tary for Scotland. Heads Board of Trade. Walter Runciman was named presi dent of the board of trade, an appoint ment which was regarded as Mr. Mac- Donald’s attempt to balance the Con servative tariff pressure with a Liberal whose mind is open on that issue. Other appointments included: Sir H. Hilton Young, Conservative, minister of health. Sir Bolton Eyres Monsell, Conserva tive. first lord of the admiralty. Sir Donald Mac Lean. Liberal, min ister of education. Sir John Gilmour, Conservative, minister of agriculture. Sir Henrv Betterton, Conservative, minister of labor. William Ormsby-Gore. Conservative, first commissioner of works. Lord Hailsham, Conservative, secre tary for war. Appointment Surprising. The most surprising appointment in the list was that of Sir John Simon to the foreign office. It was known that Lord Reading had indicated his willing ness to relinquish the post, and it was generally expected that Sir John would receive one of the more important ap pointments. but his name had not been mentioned in connection with the for- 1 eign office. j Neville Chamberlain is one of the j strong tariff group. In making these appointments Mr MacDonald, he let it be known, tried to maintain the national character of the government and at the same time make as few changes in personnel as possible. The cabinet, somewhat larger than the emergency group which succeeded the Labor government, consists of 20 members, of whom 11 are Conserva tives. 5 are Liberals of one wing or another, and 4 are members of the Na tional Labor party. j them he is still obeying his orders, i still doing his duty, still fighting against the French.” In October. 1916. a secret order sent Von Satsen from his Uhlan regiment to report to the commander of the German submarine UC-20. at Helgo land.

AMERICAN FIRMS ADVISED ID SEEK CASK FROM RUSSIA Soviet Finances Nearing Crisis, Federal Advices Here Indicate. MOSCOW MAY REVISE SYSTEM OF PAYMENT Britain's Suspension of Gold Standard Seriously Hurt Program of Stalin. BY DAVID LAWRENCE. Russia s economic experiment is slow* ly approaching a financial crisis. Amer ican business firms are receiving letters from the Department of Commerce which they are construing as advice to require cash or equivalent in goods as collateral for their sales to Russia. The next big news the world may hear rivaling the recent suspension of the gold standard by Great Britain is that Russia has modified the basis on which she has hoped to get sufficient gold exchange externally to pay for raw materials and machinery needed for her new plant and equipment. And this may mean, temporarily at least, the end of the dumping policy which has unsettled the markets of the world including American wheat prices. The foregoing inferences which may be derived from information supplied to official sources here represents a change that may ultimately mean a better blend between the communism of Russia and the capitalism of the rest of the world. While the United States Government has no official relations with the Soviet government, the State and Commerce Departments, as well as the Treasury, have been gathering information constantly in perhaps the most exhaustive study ever made by one nation of another's economic evolu tion. It is a continuing inquiry em bracing both unofficial and official in formation. British Situation Hurt. Several things stand out in the opinion of observers here as indicating the latest trend in Russian affairs. They mav be enumerated as follows: First, the suspension of the gold standard bv Great Britain was a body blow to Russian finances and mors damaging than the world realized. Russia had contracted to sell much of her production, expecting, of course, the pound sterling to yield her certain sums which now are reduced by more than 20 per cent due to the deprecia tion in the British pound. England is Russia's best customer. Second, the Russian peasants are re fusing to give up to the government all their grain production and are with holding it in such quantities that Rus sia will not have available for export the amounts she has counted on. Her production figures and estimates were correct, but it is only now leaking out that the collections by the government from the farmers are falling down by perhaps 50 per cent. Third, the Scandinavian countries which have gone off the gold standard are paying Russia less for her exports because they, like Britain, are paying in their own currencies. Italy Gets Heavy Stocks. Fourth, Italy is insisting on such a large collateral as security for her sales that a heavy stock of Russian goods is piled up in Italian markets. Italy eventually will buy and since Rome is still on the gold standard. Russia will have a balance in her favor, but not big enough to give her much free gold elsewhere. • Fifth. Germany Is following the prac tice of some other countries ip having the central government of the selling country guarantee the risks for the

merchants who sell in Russia, but Ger man banks are insisting and are get ting gold or equivalent collateral. Sixth. American business firms know the Soviets have not, as a result of their commerce with other countriea, enough goid to pay for many more purchases in cash. The American Gov ernment has lately reiterated to the inquiring American firms that sales are made to Russia at unusual risks and that increased protection would seem to be desirable It is estimated Russia owes approxi mately $125,000 000 in gold to mer chants in other countries. She can get this money only by selling her ex ports at sacrifice prices or by in creasing her own gold production. The latter has been found expensive and is not coming up to expectations, i The sale of goods is becoming every day more difficult because the flve tContinued on Page 2, Column 4.)

GARNER PROMISED NEW YORK BACKING Representative Dickstein Says Democrats Will Pre sent United Front. Representative Dickstein of New York said today the 23 members of the New York Democratic delegation would vote for Representative Garner of Texas for Speaker of the next House. Dickstein said the entire Tammany ; delegation will be present when the i House meets to organise. He pointed out that the chairman ships of four committees would go to New York Democrats if his party or ganized the House. The New York Democrat said “there will be no splitting of hairs by the Democrats when we organize the House.’’ Will Have United Front. “The New York delegation will be content with whatever arrangement Is worked out in the Democratic caucus over committee chairmanships, ’’ Dick ! stein said. “There may be some personal sacri fices among the Democratic members in order to work out the matter of chairmanships, but whatever the result the Democrats will be able to present I a united front to the Republicans when the roll is called for election of ! Speaker.” The sweep of Tuesday’s election vlc | tories have piled upon Democratic shoulders burdens hitherto borne b> Republicans. j The huge vote rolled up by A. Harry I Moore to take him into tne New Jersey 1 gubernatorial chair could be accepted by 1 national chieftains with rejoicing un adulterated by the possibility of future woes. So could the equally effective, if less decisive, march of Judge Ruby Laffoon to the Governor’s chair in Kentucky, giving the party 21 of the 48 governorships. Prospective organization of the House of Representatives, however, and ele vation of the veteran Jack Garner to the Speakership have brought their I problems. Peace May Be Problem. Overshadowing for the present even the difficulties of legislating without a working majority—a majority now standing at one—is the necessity for keeping peace in the Democratic.family. This may not piove so easy with the chairmanships of the most powerful and important committees scheduled to go to Southern members through right of seniority. Under the present line-up not only would Garner unopposed in the party for the Speakership, but 30 of 46 chairmanships of standing commit tees would go to Dixie Representatives. Texas alone would get five. An effort'by members from Northern States to force a more eauitable divi sion of these election spoils is already down in the books. Major economic problems are to b? presented to Congress almost as soon as organization is effected in the House and the equally closely divided Senate. Prohibition, flanked by an increasing number of opposition votes in both branches, will be subjected to further tests of strength. Democratic leaders in both houses have indicated an intention of recalling the Haw!ey-Bmoot tariff bill to the legislative floors for an over hauling downward. Open Leadership Fight..
