(Corre spondence of the Associated Press.) Bolshevik propagandists were sent ' from RusBla not only to Germany, but to China, England and France, says Harold de Scavenius, the Dan ish minister to Petrograd who has Just returned from iRussla together with the staff of the Danish lega tion. While at the Russian capital he had been acting in behalf of the entente powers. . Four hundred Rus sian propagandists he declares were In Berlin before the German revolu tion began, and Instructions . wer given for - numerous Bolshevists to ,. . be dispatched to England and France by nnderhand routes.- Recently, he added a number of repatriated Chi nese were sent home from Russia and among them were numerous propagandists. . The Soviet Russian government, according to M. de Scavenfua, under stands very that . its only pos sibility of maintaining Its existence is in an international revolution and while- the German, revoluton was nearing its apex the Bolshevik lead ers rejoiced in its progress but were disappointed in the fact that the German administration remained "In the hands of the social democrats. "They emphasized," said the Dan ish diplomat, "that Germany . was only in her 'February revolution' her iKerensky revolution and , they predicted that she soon would have her 'October revolution and more speedily than "was the case-In Russia. "The only cloud upon the sky of their hopes Is the position of the en tente. They say that If the entente will do as Germany did and occupy the Baltic provinces and the Ukraine there is nothing to fear because In that case they would be able in a few months to revolutionize the French and British troops as they claim they already had revolutloned the German troops. Their only alarm was less the entente should occupy Petrograd and Moscow, be cause they knew their only weapon was propaganda. Bolshevists are masters in revolutionary propaganda and at the head of this institution is an Austrian named Radek who in ' Moscow founded an 'international '. federation.' with members from the people of several nations. "Organization and production are Impossible in Russia because Rus Btan workmen have no sense of fel lowship. It Is impossible for the Russian government to reorganize Industry and trade according to com munistic principles as long as other states have not accepted like prin ciples of government. - Until now Russia has maintained life on pre war stores but this soon will be ex hausted.
