Washington, March 2 4. The
Harding: administration will consider
seriously the making of a trade
agreement with the Russian people,
provided certain conditions are ful
filled which will lead to the indus
trial recuperation of that country.
1 1 he communication from Lenin ap
pealing to President Harding to follow
the course of Great Britain and resume
trade with Russia , has opened up V dis
cussion here in a significant way.
Broadly speaking, the Harding admin
istration is as anxious to discourage
the growth of Bolshevism In the world
as was the Wilson administration. So
if it were a question of giving .moral
recognition to the triumph of Russian
Bolshevism the matter wouldn't be
given the slightest consideration by
President Harding and his advisers.
But the situation has changed. Three
policies have been always possible with
respect to Russia, and while one of
them has 'failed the others remain as
possible sequels of the present state of
. affairs. These policies and the effects
as discussed by members of the Hard
ing administration are as follows:
First External invasion. This . has
been tried both by the . allied powers
and the counter revolutionary elements,
which had the support of the allies. The
effect has been to strengthen the Bol-shevlstSjj-ather
than weaken them, for it
has given Lenin a banner around which
to rally the Russians. He has success
fully persuaded them ' that : it . was a
matter of national defense against for
eign invasion and has convincingly ap
pealed to the patriotism of the masses,
thus delaying demands for Internal re
forms. 1
Second Revolution from the inside.
The American government, n common
with the , British government, is un
willing to contribute anything to a
situation that may upset things inside
Russia without bringing internal peace
r external trade. 'Furthermore,, more
revolution means chaos, " anarchy and
complete disintegration, more hardships
for the Russian people, hunger, starva
tion and a more complex reconstruction
problem In the end than at present
Third Evolution with the assistance
of the United States and the allied
powers. This means resumption of
trade, as Great Britain has already
done and the gradual wearing down by
moral factors of the policies of the Bol
shevists that have been obnoxious to
the outsifle world. '
J Lenin has come a long way toward
the desired goal. ; little by little he has
abandoned the tenets of Bolshevism and
permitted the return, of the capitalistic
theory. First he gave in to the demand
of the masses for the private ownership
f land, leaving behind the idea of com
munism,- then: he "surrendered the no
tion about equal wages and permitted
the payment of different- wages the
cornerstone of capitalism. Now he is
willing to allow foreigners to come in
and work' Russian industries, although
he is reluctant about permitting Rus
sians to do the same because he say
naively that the government can con
trol foreigners, but cannot always safe
guard Itself against the machinations of
an oligarchy of Industrial captain.
: Prime Minister Lloyd George has par
alleled the foregoing line of reasoning as
expressed by members of the cabinet
here... The British prime minister, in his
latest speech to parliament, insists that
Lenin has changed his views and that
sovietisra is being abandoned as an im
possibility. He points out that the Brit
ish trade agreement is by no means
complete political recognition. He calls
It a de facto recognition. The viewpoint
of Lloyd George that the Xolsevik gov
ernment has at last maintained a sem
blance of order and discipline over the
vast territory controlled by the Soviets la
pointed to here in Washington ar a good
argument for encouraging evolution
rather than revolution. There is no tell
ing, say cabinet members here, what the
world will face if a start is not made
with the Russian government by the re
sumption of trade. . ;
The theory seems to be that the Bolshe
viks are ready to do business with the
rest of the world on the capitalistic the
ory and that . the recent speeches of
Lenin are intended to convey that im
pression unequivocally. Indeed, the gov
ernment here has been given to under
stand that a coalition between the Bol
sheviks and the ! Mensheviks-is also in
the air and likely to be brought About as
a final proof of . the earnestness of the
Russians to get pack into the family of
nations. . -? f ,
Everybody here realizes that a trade
agreement is but the forerunner of rec
ognition. The reply of the American
government to the appeal of Lenin, there
fore, wijl be an effort to pave the way
for recognition eventually and to assist
evolution rather than revolution. If the
conditions which the United States gov
ernment has on more than one occasion
outlined are accepted, there is no doubt
that a trade agreement with Russia sim
ilar to that made between England and
Russia will be consummated.
The Harding administration has again
been spared the necessity of opening an
important and ticklish question of for
eign policy. Prance has begun the
League of Nations discussion. Russia
has taken the initiative in one of the
most perplexing problems of the. entire
world situation, j If it is once settled
the chances for permanent peace in Eu
rope and return to normalcy abroad will
be immeasurably improved. ,
Autos Collide in
'Speeding to Fire
Gotdendale, Wash., March 24. uick
work on the part of both chauffeurs pre
vented a possible loss of life in a col
lision between two automobiles racing
to a fire.- Carl ; Jackson, owner of the
burning building, and Tony Yankee,
owner of an adjoining building, were
drivers. ; Both machines were filled with
volunteer fire fighters, who were thrown
in all directions when the crash occurred
at a street intersection. -o one was
seriously injured.
"Poeschl has been capitalizing this
accident for 11 years, declared
Deputy District Attorney Pierce in
opening his pleas to the jury, this
morning, in which he asked for con
viction of Joseph Poeschl on the
charge of first degree murder foi
the killing: of Charles Schnabel In
the courthouse February 4.
Pierce ; claimed Poeschl was wholly
capable of telling the difference be
tween right and wrong.
"We all have one idea." he declared,
If we-, have one business from which
we make our living, and Poeschl"; has
made his living off this accident on the
Southern Pacific trestle all these years
since it happened." f
Pierce recited how the4 defendant had
gone to labor unions and other organi
sations and Told his story so well that
his hearers had been moved to" give him
assistance so that he could continue his
fight for damages and live respectably
in the meantime. This was not the pro
gram of an insane person, even if he
did seem actuated by the one idea of
getting the money and punishing who
ever stood In his way. '
John Collier, defense attorney, replied
in his closing - plea that hes would not
attempt to tell the Jury whether or not
Poeschl was insane. "You have . seen
the man on the stand for ' hours and
are in a position to form your "own de
eision," he said. ? ! :
The state this morning concluded its
evidence in rebuttal, i
Attorney .W. P. : La' Roche and ' Dep
uty City Attorney - Y W. Stadter were
among the concluding witnesses, ; La
Roche, who was associated with Schna
bel when "he had dealings with Poeschl
as a client, declared, that in his opinion
Poeschl was sane at that time and that
Schnabel had given- .him exceptional
consideration because : of his physical
handicap. Stadter also testified to the
sanity of 'Poeschl. Both La Roche and
Stadter are named in Poeschl's "see1
nario" as due for "crucifixion,"

The telephone bell was ringing on and
