Austria'.; move in sendinc a lor

no hoitfilo net is intended, is wkhont
doubt n threat of actual conflict, and
the report from Duda Peat that re
serves are being onlei-ed to th eolor-i
gives. further indication that the hour
of struggle may be near. Tlio best
information available is that Austria
has more than 500,000 men on a war
Just how much dependence may be
placed oh the, Gcnr.ali report whieli
have been allowed t'ew-fi,erVer-'
lin is wot kHown. There in' little
.doubt in diploraatio circles here, how
ever, that the kaiser will be found
ready to support Austria and Italy
if the clash comes, and the news
from Bohemia that the reservist of
five German army corps have been
ordered to the colors is taken here
as nn indication that the situation
could not bo well graver.
On the other side of the possible
battle line, Russia is known to have
been for weeks massing raen on her
German-Polish frontier and it is not
doubted that her armiea will oppose
in the field the eastward march of
Austria, which, if carried out to its
logical conclusion would bring either
tho Austrian or tho German eagles to
tho Uospbortis in time.
No official information of what
Britain iutciidi- in the matter is ob
tainable here, tho HorseeuardH and
tho admiralty and foreign officers
continuing their traditional policy of
reticence. So far as can be teamed,
France litis mado no movo toward a
laud mobilization, but il is believed
that both British nnd French wor
ships in the Mediterranean are noti
