Austria, largo as slio is In territory
and population, docs not outnumber
Servla In avnllablo trained men so

seriousness of the situation lies in tho
fact that, once hostilities between the

Should Itussla mako good her threat

and Italy would Join (hf'r ally Aus

lleed that Great Ilrltaln and France,
tho two remaining powers In tho triple

points out that tho foreign situation
has assumed a development which
makes regard for military necessi

BerlcB of ordinances apllcablo to tho

Theso ordinances Include tho trans

to hOO.OOO men. Servla can mobilize
all of her male population able to bear
arms to tho number of 324,000, al
though sho maintains only 36,000 men.
As Austria must guard tho IlusBlan
frontier and leave some troops in the
great slav territory, any army sho
might attempt to throw across tho
Danube Into Servla would not be of
overwhelming strength. Germany's
field army in time of war numbers 1,
220,000 mon. Ilehlnd this field army
stands an nctlvo rosorve of 600,000
men of tho Landwehr, and behind
them still 1,600,000 men who have had

On n peaco footing the Russian army
numbers 1,384,000 men. Many of these
men would not be available, but mili
tary exports concede that Itussla could
hurl l.GOO.OOO men across tho German
and Austrian frontiers. Behind thom
are soverM milK.n trained and partly

thought to number nboat 601,000 men,

army consists of slightly mora than
300,000 men, and In tlmo of war
