RUSSIA’S TRANSPORT SERVICES 63
correspond to the progressive increase of the goods
to be transported. The credit allowed to certain
lines wrould, in his view, be paid back in two
years. But such financing ought to be arranged
through the medium of the Russian State, whose
various economic councils prepare and direct the
general work of reconstruction in the various
districts.
It seems to me rather unlikely that foreign
capital will give the Russian State credit destined
for the railways without having any share in
organising and controlling its utilisation. It
appears to me that the only way to help the
Russian railways to surmount the really difficult
period would be to give short-term credit to certain
railways of special interest, the repair or rapid
development of which would be a decisive factor
in increasing production or improving the distri
bution of produce.
By helping on to their feet certain systems of
lines in the Archangel region, for instance, one
would render possible a better exploitation of the
forests; by restoring quicker communications with
Siberia one would make it possible to develop
again the butter industry which was so flourishing
before the war and which had been developed
in the course of a few years. The production
of corn could be encouraged in the Kuban region,
and similarly the production of sugar and corn in
northern Ukraine, by making the rapid distribu
tion of the produce possible through better trans
port facilities.
