Warns Monarchy That Only By Com
plete Extermination Of Serbs Can
She Win Her Way To Victory
Predicts Most Bitter Fight In History
Servian Newspapers Irritated by the Continued Massing of
Austrian -Troops Upon Their Country's Frontier- Believe
That Dual Monarchy Desires War r 'i '
VIENNA, Austria, December 9. The mist intense exe temept Ja mani
fest here over the report that the Austrian government has elzed one of
the supply ships loaded with provisions and ammunition for the Servian :
army. It is taken by most of those in authority to mean that' trie Qavertv
ment.has decided to proceed to extremes at once, and that it feels itself
strong enough to beat back any attacks which the Serbs and their Allies
may be able to make. ' ' 5
Dispatches from Belgrade are most alarming. The reported capture
of a Servian supply ship is taken by many responsible persons as the
equivalent of a declaration of war, especially when considered In connec- ;
tion with the massing of Austrian trcops upon the frontier, just across
from Berglare. ; Y
This accumulation of Austrian roops on the frontier has excited and
irritated the Servian newspapers ever, since it began, and they hava been
demanding action on the part of their government for several days now.
Not a few of the more conservative among them are asserting in their edi
torial sections, that Austria means to attick as soon as possible, and warn
the Dual Monarchy that the war, If it rhould come, will prove one of th
most deadly in the history of the world, an well as one .of the moat bit-' '
ter. Peace, they declare, can be mainatined by the northern kingdom ' ;
enly, and they ad that only by the somplete extermination of the entire
race of Servians can Austria hope to win a substantial victory. - 4 f , -

"Thanksgiving week found the na

a period of exceptional prosperity; a

continuance for at least another sea

this all. Social and political discon

promised a rest from demagogues and
professional agitators. For this, too;
we must be profoundly thankful.
"So far as volume is concerned
business conditions in the United
States are eminently satisfactory.
Clearing house returns are running
ahead of last year at the rate of from
10 to 14 per cent per week, the gains
I being lit erally distributed in all parts

percentage of increase is usually
shown in the big crop growing states.
Railroad earnings are showing most
