(Correspond-enoe of the Associated Press) Russian Bolshevik! have a well equipped aud disciplined army of one million men and will hale doubled its size ami effectiveness in another six or ■ seven mouths, says tile Rev. Cyprus Richard Mitchell. American Young Men’s Christian Association secretary who was in charge of the association's work al Kazan on the Volga river and who has returned from Russia alter fifteen months of service in I Bolshevik Russia.  Dr. Mitchell has just filed his re- | port on the Russian situation as it ! applies to the American Y. M. C. A. work with the headquarters for the I United Kingdom here.  The gravest danger to the Bolshevik J eg i me, Dr. Mitchell believe#, is famine, ll the Bolshevik! can feed Russia for The next six weeks, they will continue ill power indefinitely is the conclusion reached by Dr. Mitchell.  “lf the Bolshevik! can hold con-icol until the end of February they J will probably carry on tor another 12 months.” he said. “In spite of the fact that I am not a Bolshevik, I do i  |  not believe it is possible for any non-Bolshevik party or combination! to overthrow the Bolshevik! without I a very liberal allied assistance. But the Bolshevik! have no right in Poland. . Should the allies take control from the Bolsheviki and hand it oxer to uon-Bolsherik Russia. I ques- i tion vary seriously whether these oth- | er parties could keep peace among t themselves for more than a few , months. The thing that makes the |  alllanet * s ,s  Russian situation so difficult is the j fact that the Russian peasant and the ;  Russian wark map will not fulfill his usual obligations, or carry on his work. He is lazy, selfish and refuses to espouse the cause of either the Bol- j shevik or non-Bolshevik. I know this I to be true in the conflict between the I Bolshevik! and Czechoslovaks along . the Volga and I have abundant evidence to inspire* me to believe that this is true all over Rulsia.  “It seems as if the capable and efficient Russian women will have to stem the floor! of disoider and compel this Russian tumult and chaos to take on order and power. It is there. It will come. But it will come slowly ami only atter the heart of Russia Is tortured by the tragedy of its present situation which it has not yet fully began to feel and realize.  Today and tomorrow morning it is theatricals, the outpouring of the native dramatic instinct of the Russian, but tomorrow noon will begin the serious sober reality to which we can build an international structure.”  By the Associated Press  WASHINGTON, D. C., Feb. 20.— Health conditions at Brest, France, »ived  !  general camp conditions and handling of troops through that camp received the “highest praise from all who inspected them since the first  day,” General Pershing reported today to the War Department as the result of recently published stories and a congressional witness describ-j iug Brest conditions as terrible.  General Pershing aud the chief • surgeon and inspector general of the I A. bl. F. all personally inspected the camp during the month. Total j deaths among transients and permanent garrisons at Brest from Nov. 12, 1917. to Feb. 7. 1919, were 1,311. Over 900,APO men entered France via. I Brest and over I€0,000 left the same way.

The shortage of rolling stock has become very acute lately, for the number of locomotives and cars out of commission for various defects has increased since July last by IO and 30 per cent respectively.  To meet the growing difficulties in the matter of repairs, the state mu-i nition factories at Lyons, Toulouse and Roanae have, since the armistice been turned with all speed into railroad repairing shops.  The French government has long hesitated to place orders in the United States, whefe alone new rolling stock could be procured, for fear ot depressing Hie French rate of exchange unduly; but the country’s needs became so pressing that orders have now been given, it is understood for purchasing 800 locomotives and 32.000 cars, while 27.000 American cars that were to have been shipped to France for the use of the American Expeditionary Force have also been acquired.  Perhaps the biggest task before the French transportation experts is tlje restoration of the destroyed railway tracks in the invaded part of France.  | An army of 75,000 workers w ill be engaged on this great work for niontTis. It includes the reconstruction of fourteen tunnels and 16.000 bridges, for which 50.000 tons of I metal are required.  In addition, hundreds of miles of main and branch lines have been temporarily “borrowed” for military purposes from elsewhere, and must now be relaid.  The departments affected have been divided up into sections, for each of which a “chief reorganizer” has been appointed. Each of them has been required to give an undertaking that he will have his section in proper working order as regards transportation, in the course or the present year.  An appropriation of 120.000.000 francs has been made by the government to enable the railway companies to purchase rolling stock for urgent public needs. The minister of Public Works has declared that, in his view, the restoration of France’s Northern and Eastern railway systems should be made a first charge upon the war indemnity to be paid by the enemy.
