before the military club which in re
turn for its glorious victories demands
the right of vetoing all measures which
in its opinion are calculated to impair
the political value of the military suc

would explain certain other manifesta
tions of animosity on the part of tho
Servian military authorities, tho pub
lication of whioh would only embitter
the feud. Personally, I believe the
Belgrade Cabinet will cross tho golden
bridge slill at its service.
One or two indications of a concilia
tory disposition have just como to my

gets the upper hand at Belgrade there
is no doubt whatever that the Albanian
contention and all tho issues cluster

If Austria should piuve her friend

Snrvla will willingly reciprocate by con
cluding with Austria an economic con
tract which will be mutually advan

port for commercial purposes only and
will not fortify It.

FEAR OF EUROPEAN WAR.
Pessimism Throughout Karopr Over
London, Nov. 20. The opinion Is gen
eral In Kurope that the tension betwaen
Austria and Servla Is increasing and it
threatening the most serious outconu.
The Daily Mall's Vienna correspondent
In confirming this view says the situa
tion Is nearlng a climax. He adds that
despite the urgent request of the Aus
trian Government to be allowed to com
municate with Herr I'rochaska, tha
Consul at Priarend who has not been
heard from since the Servians entered
that place, Uie Ben-Ian Government has
hitherto taken no steps to reestablish
oonneotlon between the Consul and his
Government, and up to Tuesday after
noon had made no reply to tha repre.
sentatlona of Count von Uerchtold, tha
Austrian Minister of Foreign Affairs.
Unless satisfaction Is forthcoming very
soon, the correspondent says, the
Vienna Cabinet will take energetic steps
at Belgrade. The Cabinet, however,
seems disposed to wait for Servla's re
ply on tho Albanian question until King
Peter has returned to Belgrade from
According to the Belgrade newspapers
the King, whose health la known to
have been bad from the beginning of tha
war, caught cold during a te deum ser
vice at Uskub and Is now seriously 111.
His return to the capital may be In
definitely postponed, as the doetom
think that he may be In bed for set
"Meanwhile, although every effort
continues In official clroues to represent
tbs situation as not yt critical," con
tinues the Mail' Vienna correspondent,
"It Is clesr that the Austro-Httngarlan
official world Is fully prepsred for things
taking the worst possible turn. I learn
I thst the real object of the recent mis
sion of M. Daneff, the Bulgarian special
representative lo Budapest, was to In
from Austria In behalf of the Balkan
league that while Bulgaria was exceed
ingly anxious that Austria nnd Servla
should arrive at an amicable settlement
the Balkan armies would stand solidly
by their ally In ths event .of Austria de
ciding to bar Servla's road to the Adri
atic by force of arms."
The correspondent says he has made
special inquiries as to thr Servian atti
tude In the case of Consul I'rochaska.
Ho says that M. Pnsltch. tho Servian
Premier, apparently takes the view that
military exigencies may override In cer
tain circumstances all precedent In dip
lomatic usage. The correspondent adds:
"I am told that the Servians allege that
Albanians fired from the roof of the
Austrian Consulate on the Servian
troops as they were entering Prlsrend,
and furthermore, that Consul I'rochaska
displayed an Inconvenient curiosity re
garding the movements of the Servian
army. In these circumstances the Ser
vian Government apparently holds It
self Justified In bowing to thr decision
of ths Servian military commanders to
Isolate Herr Prorhaska until tho mili
tary operations have been terminated.
"In the light of all these facts," con
tinues the correspondent, "there ap
pears to be some Justification for the
suggestion made by Prof. Lammnsch, a
distinguished authority on International
law, who was one of the Austrian dele
gates to the Inst conference st The
Hague, that the dispute should bo sub
mitted to thr Hague Tribunal.
According to the vrll of Vienna. Herr
von Ugron, thr Austro-Hungnrlan Min
ister at Belgrade, has been Instructed
to demand from Servla a declslvo an
swer as to the position she is going to
take in regard to an Adriatic seaport
nnd affairs In Albania. So far, says
tho paper, the Serbs have answered
Austria In a vague nnd ambiguous way
If there cornea no answor within a
certain period, continues this authority,
or If that answer Is not satisfactory,
vigorous military measures will follow.
Kmperor Krancls Joseph of Austria
la quoted In the Xarodul lAsty of
I'rague ns saying to one of his ad
visers: "We are In (avor of peace.
Wo are not In favor of peace at any
price. There are certain limits beyond
which our patience cannot stretch."
In the Hungarian delegation during
a debate on the foreign estimates Herr
Nagy, the reporter of the budget, said
that ha noticed with the deepest regret
that events were happening In the
Balkans which not only bore the char
acter of an assault upon Austria
Hungary but also a violation of tho
most elementary rules of International
law. He added that as tho details of
the charges In regard to the treatment
of Austro-Hungarian Consula by the Ser
vians had not yet been officially pub
lished It would bo best for tho Foreign
Minister to reassure the delegation that
nothing was going on derogltory to the
dignity of the dual monarchy.
On the other hand there Is a semi
official statement In the Belgrade Samoa-
prara that If Austria will recognlz

are doing their best to preserve the
sympathy of the clvllUed world and
Vienna and lludapest should recognize,
this and understand that Servla must
assimilate the national aspirations.
The occupation of Alesst by the com
bined Sen-Ian and Montenegrin armies
has done much to renew the Ire of
Austria. That nation felt Indignant
when It learned that the Serbs were
near Durazzo, on the Adriatic, and the
occupation of San Olovnnnt dl Medua
by the Montenegrins and the rumors of
the ill treatment of the Austrian citi
zens and property there had no cooling
The Austrlans say that Gen. Martlno-
vltch, In command of the tontenegrlns,

bags there, that an Austrian courier

It is probable that all the steps tow
