said "It will not make an atom of

"The Go eminent hnH delli'd us, so we

Lonpon, May 1. A nutria still has
ynude no move against Montenegro and
It not likely to make any until the re
sult of the conference of the Ambas-
heri! to-day (Thursday) Is
known. This conference Is universally
regarded as a fateful one and although
there Is no remarkable pessimism there
Is little hope that the diplomats will ar-
live at a decision which will fulfil Aus
tria's demands. This speculation, how
ever, Is without value, for nothing Is
known as to what will be done nor can
anything be ascertained.
The correspondent of the )nll Tele
ifi'iini at Vienna, who admits that
'things look threatening declares that a
breach of the peace ts nowin" certain,
b"caue however Improbable It may
,seem it 1 possible that Montenegro will
yield at the eleventh hour. The King
(of Ital. whose wife Is a daughter of
. Nicholas, Is bringing great moral pres
sure on the latter, but even If he Is
coaxed Into submission his Ministers
may not be.
Italy is extremely reluctant to share
the lliuiuci.il cost and odium of ifn expe
dition nualnst the Monteiiecrins. which

Itrttnln's eimntptmnpp even without her
cooperation Italy probably will Join
Austria In the movement against the
Montenegrins, Montenegro In that
case will yield perhaps ut once.
This correspondent reiterates the
.statement that as yet Austria has no
cut and dried plan. The method and
time of her action will 'depend on a
variety of circumstances, but the sole
object of the campaign. If It Is und"r

dered I'mprcss of Austria, would reveal
many court secrets which hitherto have
be'en suppressed. Tho beiok is written
spicily and with no end of detail.
It Is for tho most part an intimate story
of the "tragenly of MeyerlinR -the love
affair of tho Crown Prince Rudolph, only
sou of Kinporor Francis .loseph, und the

i'he Countess took Marie Vetsera to
a rendezvous wher- Prince Rudolph
said he want.sl merely a ten iniiiute

amazed th Countess by putting Marie
in an inner room, locking all the doors
and threatening tn kill the Countess
when she threatened to tell tlie F.mpress.
Tim Countess called him "a devil." He
replied that he stood "on the brink of
