ONLY TWO FACTORS foi
3IAKIXJ FOR PEACE fin
England and France Still Trying to it
Prevent General Conflict?War tin
Preparation Continues. all
London, ^ug. 1.?An extraordinary rja
rnnncil of ministers held at Peterhoff.
according to a St. Petersburg dispatch th(
to the Times, was confronted last
night with a modified situation, result- .
ing from assurances by the German ^
amlbassador following messages ex?
Ranged between the Russian em-1 ^
peror, the German emperor and King! .
T'.ie impression among the ministers,
adds the dispatch, is that Germany is
disposed to bring influence to bear
upon Austria to resume diplomatic
t, jq f
con\ersations on grounds acceptable;
to t':e other European powers and
there seems some hope of a comproboi

First, Russia and Austria are en- J
gaged again in direct negotiations.
Second, both Great Britian and
France are using their utmost endeav- a
ors in favor of peace.
On the other hand Russ;<. 'has or- ma

France has not mobilized, but cab- 6X<
inet councils which sat until late t>
night issued decrees establishing a in^
moratorium and taking other action no
which could only be determined upon !m_
the eve of war. Unofficially the
French army is being virtually mobilized.
A circumstantial though as yet unconfirmed
report published in Rome t0
says Germany is about to demand i
frcm both Russia and France the im- th
mediate cessation of mobilization. Yet
aonther rumor is that the German am- int
bassador has notified the French govK..<
ernment of his early eparture. ,iJUI
Great Britian is practically though 'ma
noi officially mobilized and the small- pai
er European States, Belgium, Holland 0l
and Switzerland, as a precaution, have *
ordered the mobilization of their at
armies to protect their territory from
being used as a highway for the belligerents,
and Norway, Sweden and v,a
Denmark to guard tiiemseEves on general
principles. . ?

decision not to participate in the j
struggle, there is little doubt that she j
is making ready fc'r mobilization.
