ni
jt, London, Dec. 4. Russia has rctort-
JF 'cd to the "rattling k of tho German
'Ji sword" Jn the Balkan -war tangle.
in She has declared thtit she will not
If permit a repetition of the methods
I ( used when Austria occupied Bosnia
" and Herzegovina.
ijl : "Such Intimidation will frighten no-
Jf lody!" exclaims the Novoe Vrcraya,
Y commenting on the German chancel-
f lor's giving prominence to the idea of
i L ' war.
:; War Parties Hold Platform.
,' ' Tlie war parties, h'oth In Russia and
K ; Austrtla-Hungary, seem to hold tho
H public platform for tho moment
fl against the peaceably disposed minls
M terg of the countries. Anv untoward
Wj incident or provocative on "the part of
I Servia would, in the opinion of dlplo-l
I mats here, in a moment set Austria
It Hungary in motion, and this probably
t would loosen forces in Russia which
I tho government of the Russian em-
plr-s would find itself unable to rcsIsL
e. ,
History Repeats Itself.
I The Novoe Vrernya continues
"History is repeating itself, but it is
not so easy now to force Russian dip
lomacy into a faint-hearted retreat."
Withdrawal of Deposits Advocated.
The immediate withdrawal of the
vas Russian doposits from the Gor
man banks is advocated by many of
the Russian Journals.
Should Greece persist in her re
fusal to adhere to the armistice signed
yesterday it would necessarily throw i
Bulgaria" more closely Into tho em-'
,m brace of Servia and give fresh encour
agement to the Servian resistance
to the European powers, who are
practically unanimous in condemning
the Servian demands.
' If Austria-Hungary should attempt,
as has been suggested, to employ
Rumania to keep Bulgaria quiet in
' the event of an Austrian-Servian war,
it is thought that such action would
only enlarge the area of conflict and
a precipitate a general catastrophe.
' f Any Intervention by Rumania, it is
, ' argued, would inevitably compel Rus
sia to take drastic action on behalf
of ,the Slavs In tho Balkans.
Diplomats Muct Act Quickly,
i Diplomats realize that tho crisis de
mands Immediate treatment, and ef
forts to bring about an ambassadorial
conference aB quickly as possible have
been renewed, as it Ib thought that
this is the only means of bringing the
I necessary pressure Into play to ex-
Ungulsh tho Incendiary tendoncy of
tho extremists in tho various coun

Taft Favors Spending
Fifty Millions in Mis
sissippi Valle3r.
Washington, Dec 4. President Taft
today told the delegates to the Na
tional Rivers and Harbors congress In
session here that ho personally was
opposed to any scheme of Improve
ment for the Mississippi river which
did not contemplate, as a primary ob
ject, the prevention of floods.
Floods Must Be Prevented.
The president made the opening ad
dress at tho congress. Ho favored the
expenditure by the United States gov
ernment and the states in the Missis
sippi valley of between forty and fif
ty million dollars for the Mississippi's
improvement. He said that before all
other considerations must be placed
the idea of preventing floods like
those of last spring, which flooded
the country from Cairo to New Or
leans. He declared further that his in
dorsement of improvements would be
forthcoming only if the work were
placed in tho hands of the army en
gineers. So far as other waterway
projects were concerned, the president
said, his approval would be lacking
unless their backers could show as
good a case as tho Mississippi river.
"Well," concluded the the president,
"I guess fifty million dollars is enough
for one morning "
Speech Startled Delegates.
Many of the delegates were startled
by the president's speech. So far as
they knew it was' the first time he
had recommended appropriations for
improvements of waterways contin
gent upon flood prevention. Notwith
standing that it did not meet the
views of scores of delegates, the
speech was warmly applauded at sev
eral places.
