T5,OO0 Cane ot Cholera.
Moscow officials now admit 75,000
cases of cholera, with tacit acknowl
edgment that the disease Is on tho m- j
croase. In the period from January 1 :
to July 15 official soviet organs In i
-Moscow reported 47,000 cases, of
which more than 16,000 had occurred
In the single month of June. As com
munication with even tho more acces
sible districts Is notoriously poor, it Is
regarded as certain that the actual
number of cases in vastly greater than
tho official reports would Indicate. -
That the present situation la fraught
with danger for the bolshevlat regime
Is regarded by officials hero as axlo.

cannot hope to be sufficient supplies

have shown resentment of the attitude
taken by some of the soviet authorities
and much of tho soviet press. If any
thing is to be Judged from the views
expressed In the soviet press, thev d

sian people from starvation.
Tons of Breadstuff Needed.
While the feeling is growing th't
there must be concessions on both
sides as to the exact degree of restraint
which is to be placed upon the activi
ties of relief workers, there Is also a
distinct conviction among adm'nlstrn
tlon officials that the Russian people
as a whole know rhat the relief Is com- I
ing from outside Russia and not from
the bolshcvist government. Otherwise
It is pointed out. American organiza

pounds of grain are required before
September 1 in order that the fields
mav be sowed before the winter frosts.
Indications are tliat very little winter
grain will be sowed because of the dif
f culiy of transporting the seed, even
if it were available.
Coal ITodtMlioii Reduced.
That the pinch of the fuel famine
Is making Itself felt Is shown by offi
cial reports issued in Moscow to the
effect that the coal production pro
gram for the whole ot Russia has beep
reduced to less than half. In the Don

one-fourih of normal.

manner with the question of famine
ItallroiKls Arc Inefficient.
As has been shown by ths official
reports from Moscow, a few districts
;in Russia will produce more thrfh
enough to feed their own populations.
Unless some means is available for
transporting this surplus grain to the
less fortunate districts, however, it will
have no effect in alleviating the gen
I The railroads are only about 30 per
i cent efficient, because of the lack of
loconioties and rolling stock, and even
this Inferior degree of efficiency is
'menaced by the shortage of fuel. This
problem has an important bearing up
ion the relief work proposed by Mr.
; Hoover and other organizations, as
jtransportatlon facilities must be avai
lable in goodly measure when Ameri
can relief supplies begin to pour in
from Danzig. Riga nnd Reval.
Mr. Hoover Has stated that he is
re;idy to care for 1,000,000 starving
children. One of the most difficult
problems in connection with this un
dertaking Is expected to be that of se
curing proper transportation for these
supplies from the Russian border into

BOOTLEGGERS ARE GIVEN
BLOW BETVEFN EYES
WASHINGTON, 'Sept. 12. (I. X. P.)
"Bootleggers have been hit squarely
between the eyes." . :
This was the gleeful view held by
Uoy A. Haynes. chief of the Prohibi
He feels sure that one of the wost of
bootlegging evils has been successfully
met by the prohibiting of shipments of
lltiuor by truck.
Commisioner Haynes said bootleg- i
gers have been getting a large part of
their illicit supplies over the "truck
The methods have vanjed, he said.
One of the favorite means of getting
fresh stocks is for bootleggers to
conspire to hold up shipments en route
from distillery or bonded warehouse
to the person who bought the liquor.
The fact that shipments of liquor by
truck have been permitted has made
j it exceedingly difficult, he said, to de
tect other movements of Illicit liquors
from other sources than those of dis
tilleries. Under orders now being enforced by
Commissioner Haynes, dry law agents
will keep a strict watch out on all
highways and .under new methods em
ployed, expect to be able to detect
liquor caravans with less difficulty.
