A STATE-TRUST. "Greater Russia, by Mr. Wirt Gerrare, contains, among other good things, an interesting and instructive account of the power of the State in Russia, and the manner in which it tries to perform and supervise everything: There are State railways and communications. There are the State forests and domains, State mines, fisheries, and farms, Slate industriesârail- way, shipping, prison, and others; and, latent, the spirit monopoly, worked solely by the State, and the first year returning a profit of 106 per cent, on the capital employed. The State is not only the greatest landowner, but is the greatest trader and the greatest railway contractor in the world. It works over 20,000 miles of railway, and, besides administering the various manufacturing and other departments incident to governing a modern State, it is more or less directly responsible tor every enterprise undertaken within its territories. It regulates the hours of labour, and even adjusts the scale of wages; by attracting imports it affects the price of commodities and manufactured goods. In one word, the Russian State is a gigantic "trust," endeavouring to regulate its multi- tudinous businesses in a way that will return the largest profit.
