Special VespatcJi It Tnt Sex, Washingion, Jan. 0. A. bureau for tho dissemination of soviet Information or propaganda In the United States was f rtabltehed by tho Russian Soviet Gov- ernment y In one of the capital's pi ')lnont. hotels within a ftw hundred yards of the Whlfo House and within plain sight of tho oflce of tho Attorney-Genera- l. Additional space Is to be taken by the bureau, which already has a staff at work. S. Nuonova, who nald that ho repr ' rented Ludwlg C. K. A. Martens, the Soviet \Ambassador\ to the United States, has charge eff the bureau. Ths bureau Issued Its first statement In part as follows: \We have been Informed that Mr. Gregory Welnstoln of the Ililsslan Soviet Government bureau has been arrested and held for deportation and that Is threatened against Sir. Mar- tens and other members of hla staff as a last desperate efort to prevent the truth about the Russian situation and s bout the real foreign policies .of the Russian Soviet Government from being placed before the people of America. We wolcome the opportunity the pro- posed hearings before the Senate give us to state these facts and to refute the hysterical lies which are being spread about our Government and about the Russian Soviet bureau In New York. \I regard the mean persecution of our bureau and nthe frantic man hunt of ill friends of Soviet Russia as a delib- erate attempt to prevent the Impending peaco and understanding with our coun- try and to prevent a fair hearing before the Senate committee. \I feel confident that the large masses ef the American people. In eplto of the manufactured prejudice against us, will row at least understand that there are forces at work who are afraid of getting tho truth about Russia before the Amer ican people. The Senate hearing would also have opened wide If we were per mitted to testify the Augean itables of the work of Russian reactionaries in this ' country, who have squandered on abom- inable plots and intrigues tens of mil- lions of money lent by the American Government to Russia. It seems that there are many people besides Mr. Boris Bakhmetlev and hla crowd who would not like to have these matters tdlscussed. \There also appears to be another rea- son for the desire to deport us.

Special amount forged money, world, passed on not the the for act Past, Present and Future Interesting and perhaps not without profit is the perusal at this time of the prophecies of a year ago. They were as diversified as they were numerous, but those who took the optimistic view of the outlook for the year just closed, and the Harriman National Bank was among this number, were justified, as events have proven. We asked our customers not to confuse the usual post-holida- y, January inventory period of trade dul-ne- ss with conditions due strictly to post-wa- r readjust- ment and reconstruction. Stocks of merchandise all over the country at that time were low, as we pointed out, the result of which has been, of course, a year of high prices and consequent prosperity. Stocks are still low, consumption in excess of production. Moreover, we pointed out that there was a demand for goods which we believed would strengthen; so it was and still is, but the limit is of course nearer by a year. Buyers then were inclined to wait for reduction in prices. While they waited, consumption continued and prices kept lip. This fs also a current condition. The Harriman National Bank believes, however, the peak is visible, even if but dimly for the moment. To prophecy is thankless. We still and shall always require to learn by experience. Nevertheless, the Harriman National Bank does not hesitate to pre- dict a continuation of trade activity and consequent prosperity, but at the same time- - we would have our customers keep their wits awake to such conditions as may come when domestic demand for goods is satisfied, and European demand is still pending.

Harriman and backed by Mrs. Jchn ICIng Van ltcnsselacr, was smoth- ered by the \regulars headed by John A. Weekes and William Church Ojborn, by 512 .votes to 77. In the preceding debate S.
