LENIN AS FINANCIER.
(Received May 3, 1 p.m.) LONDON, April 30. A Geneva message states that Lenin, on being interviewed, said that he was seeking to annihilate the power of money in the world, hence hundreds of thousands of rouble notes were issued daily from the Bolshevik Treasury, with the . deliberate intention of destroying the value of money.
As it is impossible to root out capitalism by confiscation, added Lenin, we are flooding the country with notes without financial guarantees of any sort.
Lenin is also entertaining vast agricultural schemes, based on the manufacture of a great quantity of scientific agricultural machinery and implements with which he intends to develop Russian resources with the utmost rapidity.
