Transcript ascribed by the Communist propaganda there to the Social-Democratic Government. This, propaganda is addressed to' the simple folk who do not know that in Russia not merely clearness, but the most desperate hunger prevails. The housing shortage is certainly abating in many of its towns. In Petrograd thousands of houses are empty, as of the population of that city one-third has either starved, or frozen, or fallen victims to pestilence or the Extraordinary Commission.

As is the case with other countries, the principal cause of the fall in the value of the Georgian rouble is to be looked for in the inflation of the currency, and the excessive output of paper money. One immediate result of the revolution was toi reduce considerably the revenue of the State. The old State constitution, being corrupt and inimical to the people, had to be radically reformed, which was not a simple matter, in view of thle lack of native experience.

The Budget of 1919-1920 estimated the income of the State at 749 millions of roubles, of 49
