Report That Leaders Have Decided To

LONDON, Dec. 4. Several of the leaders among the af
ternoon papers in this city have created a sensation by
printing a story that the suffragette leaders, in a recent se
cret session decided to use dynamite to force their claims
before the country. According to the stories,-ihe suffrage
women resolved that, inasmuch as all their other efforts ap
peared to have been unavailing the only means left open to
them was to resort to extreme measures. After consider
able discussion it was decided to explode bombs under the
houses of parliament unless the equal suffrage bill, now
pending in the house of commons, is)jassed at once. Delay,
the leaders declared, means defeat.

LONDON, Dec, .-The International crisis, for a time
thought to be lessening; has again assumed proportions of
the most alarming character. Dispatches from Sofia receiv
ed here this morning announce that Servia Is summoning ev
ery available citizen capable of bearing arms, to meet the
massing of Austrian troops just across the border from Bel
grade.1 The government, it is said, has appealed to Russia
and the Czar's ministers have answered that Way are pre
pared tq back the Serbs in any conf let with, the Duahf.ioh-
Larchy tliat may arise. . :

threats as those uttered from the Kaiser's mnister;wiil have
no intimidating effect upon any one wio knows the condition
of the German army and the absurdity of her claims. Rus-
sian diplomatic policy cannot be driven to fa'ntheafted re
treat by any such intimidations."' ; ; : y
' Other St. Petersburg papers, apparently equally .inspired
by official sources, demand that the government .of Russia
withdraw from the German banks the huge sums of money 4
which arc being held there, and that the Czar's minsters
hasten "preparations for what now appears to be the tnevi
