Speculation Is Raipant in the Capi

Moscow, Sept. 20.-Speculat lio is
rampant in the capital of soviet Rus
sia. Wall strdet, Threadneedle street
or any other financial district in the
world has not half as many "shoe
string operators" as this ancient city
of the Czars. The curbe are crowded
each day with promoters trying to or
ganize coopwrative concerns from tea
houses to automobile factories, and
the talk of money inside and outside
'te government has a capitaistic ring
seldom heard in Russia before the
soviet government decided it was tin
able to handle all business.
Markets are overcrowded with deal
ers. but bii(dings are standing idle
because there is a lack of capital with
v.hich to pay the annual rentals, which
luist ie met in advance. Newspapers
are filled x it h sugzestions for thel as
;istance of cooperative associallons,

ing that the state bank he allowed to
mtakeba ll to enlcouirage trade and in
uie try. Sugestionl was made that in
ti'res.t from ten to twelve .'ker cent
mtonliy colid he charged.
L.icenses for S97 shops and 5.489
mairket-stalls or stre&t wagons have
'. en issued in Moscow since the open
ing of free trade.
Market-stalls pay from 1,000,000 to
1,500.000 rubles annually, according to
location: boothlacks pay 300,000 ruibles
for their places of business, while
sihops pay .00,000 to 1,500,000 accord
ing to location, and tile proprietors,
must also keep tile property in re
,:air and clean the courtyards and
streets abutting their buildings.
The government levies a tax of flve
per cent in kind on concessioinaries
producing foodstiffs; S per cent on
chemical manufacturers, and 10 per
cent oin metal working lilrms.
Twentya si < J.-\Low faetories have
been leased to private iidividuals out
of 25 i which the government has of
fored to concessionaries. These plants
en ploy 1.700 men. Tile government
has retained 315 factories employing
1.50,000 workers, but it has assumed
responsibility for feeding only 70,000.
The indttstries retained are chiefly
chemical, textile, metal, tanning, elec
trical and printing shops.
