ROTTERDAM, Holland, Nov. 30.?Universal Sprvice
presents herewith the second and concluding part of the
most sensational expose of German secret diplomacy on
record, the summary of documents unearthed ?ind compiled
for the German government by Deputy Kautsky, though
suppressed in Germany.
"Now Or Never" Note.
In the opening chapter of the reve
lation? It was shown how the Kaiser.
?two flay? after the assassination of
the Austrian archduke at Sarajevo,
wrote "now or never" on the margin
?of a note from the German ambassa
Idor at Vienna telling of the feeling
'there th&t there muet be a reckoning
It also was shown that the Kaiser
was greatly incensed at hi? ?mbas
,sador to Vienna for havi-ia: enleavor
(cd tot dl??uade the Austrian? from
taking any ha?ty action agein?t
Serbia and how in another marginal
note he termed Count von Berchtold,
the Austrian foreign minister, an
"a?e" because of hi? protest that Aus
tria h*d no deaire to claim any Serb
on the ??me communication the
Kaiser al?.< made the notation:
' . "Austria must take the Sanjak or
?els? Serbia will ?ome down to the
Adriatic. Austria must become pre
ponderant in the Balkan?, or there
will be no Vace." Hi? commendation
of the Au**'rian government for ?end
ing the ultimatum to Serbia wa* cited
ae another proof of the Herman rul
ers desire for war rather than a
peaceful ?ettlement of the affair.

Today'? chapter tells of how the
German foreign office, which through
out the war eo ?tanchly denied hav

ultimatum to stop or modify it, a.tual
ly set the time for Its delivery, how
the Kaiser, after Serbia had barked
down, urged Austria on to insist
upon her pound of flesh.

Francis Joseph at Ischi and the text
