The -American gotTrnment noti-
II ed tbe soviet authorities in Rus
sia today that resumption of trade
between Russia and the United
States could, not be considered un
til, fundamental changes had been
made in the economic system un
derlying the soviet regime.
Safety of human life, guaran
tee of property rights, free labor
and observance of tbe sanctity ot
contracts were, among the re
quirements laid down in a note
by Secretary Hughes as essential
if trade relations are to be re
newed. The communication add
ed, that "convincing evidence ot
the consummation of such hang
es" must be furnished before this
government even cared to discuss
the subject.
The commun'cation was made
public at the state department in
tbe form of a statement by Sec
retary Hughes with the notation
that a copy should be sent
to tbe American consul at Reval.
Estbohia, to be handed to Litvin
oft, soviet representative there.
The note was in reply to tbe ap
peal recently addressed by the so
viet jegime to President Harding
and congress asking that trade re
lations, between the United States
and Russia be restored and pro
posing to send a delegation to tbe
United States to negotiate. :
"Whole . Administration Agreed
Prior to making a, final decis
ion, the Russian trade question
was discussed by President Hard
ing and his cabinet. In & state
ment after tbe note had been
made public. Secretary Hoover de
clared the conclusion reached

Unlike official pronouncements
of the American government's at
titude toward the soviet regime.
Secretary Hughes note dealt sole
ly with the economic aspects or
tbe. -problem and made no at
tempt to discuss the. political
short comings ot the unrecog
nized Bolshevist government. It
set forth, in a few words the rea
son why the united States con
aiders it poor business to trade
with Russia under existing con
ditions, but making no indict
ment against boUhevism as a po
litical system. x
Wilson Xbt Yet Modified
It was pointed out. however,
that there was nothing in the note
to reverse or modify the coramun
nication to Italy in which the Wil
son administration set forth last
August the unwillingness ot the
United States to enter into politi
cal negotiations with a govern
ment "based upon the negation
ot every principle of honor and
good faith.
The manner In which today's
note was made public had none
ot the air of usual diplomatic ne
gotiations, being contained in this
official announcement from the
state department:
The secretary of state made
the following statement today.
copy of which, transmitted by cab

"The government of the Unit
ed States." says the communica
tion, "views with deep sympathy
and grave concern the plight Of
the people of Russia and desires
to aid by every appropriate means
in promoting proper opportunities
through which commerce can b
established on a sound basis. It
is manifest to this government
that in existing circumstances
there is no assurance for the de
veloment of trade, as the sup
plies which Russia might now be
able to obtain would be wholly
inadeauate to meet her needs and
no lasting good can result as long ;
