Russia's determination to join with ServLi against an invasion of
'Servian territory by Austrian armed forces was communicated directly
' to-day to all the Powers. The position of Russia has been outlined by
Crar Nicholas in response to a diplomatic request from Kaiser Wilhelm
that Russia allow Austria and Scrvia to light out tneir own quarrel.
The reply of the Czar was that , in the event of the invasion of
firvit Russian troops will be mobilized on the German and Austrian
forfcrs. Such mobilization, it is announced, has already been Inaugu-

CHICAGO, July 2. Despite great
strain and a sudden drop of more
than four cents a bushel, wheat
traders to-day escaped any failures
nnd most of the tlmo were acting
under fairly normal conditions. Tho
close, however, showed sensational
weakness, values falling away one

day, 3H to 4H cents under last
night Reports of communications
between the Czar and tho Kaiser,
foreshadowing possible peace, 'hnd
most to do With the reaction from
yesterdays extraordinary advance of
nearly ten centa a bushel.
Informal notices from bankers to
board of trade houses that extreme
caution was necessary and that no
undue risks be taken, rosulted In
calming tho cxcltemont that marked
yesterday' trading. It was said that
nearly every house In the grain
trade was required to submit a
statement of liabilities, and that It
was this proceduro which brought
about the calling of margins to the
almonjt unheard of extent of from ten
to twenty-llvo rents on all trades.
Tho pits And galleries wero crowd
ed to capacity. The commotion among
traders, however, after operations ac
tually began, was less tumultuous
than yesterday, whon nows was re
ceived that war had boon declared.
The extreme point of tho break In
tho early trading was 4 S-8 tinder
lost night, but the market gradually
steadied at approximately two cents
down for netlve months, and less for
other options.
Announcement that all firms on
'Change had passed tho Clearing
Ilousn safely brought out Immediate
evidence of relief. Tho feeling of Im
proved confidence wns reflected by a
lively advance from bottom prices.
The upturn In some cases amountod to
more than a cent a bushel.
