III
STALIN'S HAND IN SPAIN

Charges were made in the foreign press that Caballero had mortgaged part of the national gold reserve for Soviet aid. On December 3, while transport of the gold was being arranged, Moscow officially denied that such a deal had been consummated just as it has consistently denied the existence of Soviet intervention in Spain. In our inner circle, Stashevsky was then jestingly called "the richest man in the world," because of his control of the Spanish treasury.
In my conversations with Stashevsky in Barcelona in November, Stalin's next moves in Spain were already cropping out. Stashevsky made no secret to me of the fact that Juan Negrin would be the next head of the Madrid Government. At that time, Caballero was universally regarded as the favourite of the Kremlin, but Stashevsky had already picked Negrin as his successor.
Caballero was a genuine radical, a revolutionary idealist. Moreover, he did not favour the work of the Ogpu, which, under Orlov, was beginning to develop in Spain, as in Russia, a sweeping purge of all those dissidents, independents and anti-Stalinists, whom the party lumps together under the label of " Trotskyists. "
Dr. Juan Negrin, on the other hand, had all the makings of a bureaucratic politician. Though a professor, he was a man of affairs with the outlook of a business man. He was just the type to suit Stalin's needs. Like General Miaja, he would make a good fa~ade to show to Paris and London and Geneva. He would impress the outside world with the "sanity" and "propriety" of the Spanish Republican cause; he would frighten nobody by revolutionary remarks. He had a Russian wife, and moreover, as a practical man, Doctor Negrin welcomed the purging of the "uncontrollables" and "trouble-makers" in his country by any hand, even the foreign hand of Stalin.
