Juno first report ol ice British labor dcle- who have Just returned from an investigation of conditions in Russia was made public last eve- ning. The delegates declare them- selves deeply Impressed with the distress and disorganization which they found in Russia, the dejec- tion .of the people and the eilenl of the government's interference with individual liberty. The re- port Is said to be unanimous. Tho resort describes Ihe block- ade as Injurious to the world and disastrous to Russia and refers tO'.the epidemic of disease to which the absence ot sorip and medical supplies lias given full sway, although great efforts have been made toward sanitation. De- nouncing tho Polish war, the- re- port says: "Tho appeal for crpative work is being ones more set aside in i favor ot an appeal to military en- thusiasts'while the war condi- tions provide now pretexts for restricting individual liberty and preventing freedom ot discus- sion." The report says war rallies all parties to the defence of the coun- try; it emphasizes the breakdown in manufacturers through the lack of raw material and advocates the immediate recognition of Itussla. Letter from Lenine The report was brought to Eng- land' by Benjamin Turner and Thomas Shaw, members of tho Brilisll delegation which visited Russia for presentation to the labor congress at Scarborough. They brought also a letter from Nikolai I.enine, the Bolshevik pre- mier, exhorting the workers to revolution in England which hys created a sensation.
