ARTEL (Russ. for " gang "), the name for the co-operative associations in Russia. Originally, the artels were true examples ARTEMIS 663 of productive co-operation, bodies of working-men associating together for the purpose of jointly undertaking some piece of work, and dividing the profits. This original form of artel still survives among the fishermen of Archangel. Artels have come, however, to be little more than trade gilds, with mutual responsibility. (For details see RussIa.)
