London, July 30.?Russia is mobilizing 1.600.000 troops at
Kieff. Odessa. Moscow -nd Kazan.
Germany is replying to the Russian mobilization, according
to the Kaiser's ultimatum, and officially admits the mobilization
of a large part of the army in Eastern Prussia.
Great Britain's first fleet, a huge armada consisting of twenty
eight battleships, fourteen battle-cruisers, seven cruisers and sev?
enty destroy?, s. left Portland yesterday, sailing westward under
sealed orders, while the coast defences were manned. To all ap?
pearances an army mobilization is also beginning, though the
War Office denies officially that measures in the nature of a
mobilization have been taken. The War Office statement says
that the movements are purely precautionary and of a defensive
The Austrian government has taken possession of all the
railroads o" the Dual Monarchy.
France continues preparing for mobilization, and while news
from the republic is being carefully suppressed there is the best
reason for believing that the army is concentrating on the German
and Italian frontiers, while Paris itself is being stocked with food
as for a siege.
The diplomatic conversations between Russia and Austria
are being continued, but all dispatches from St. Petersburg indi?
cate that their break-down is imminent, the question of Austrian
occupation of Servian territory to force payment of an indemnity
proving the stumbling block.
Both sides refuse to yield, and indications point to clever
Russian diplomacy in prolonging the negotiations so as to gain
time for the mobilization of the army, an operation which takes
a fortnight longer in Russia than in Germany or Austria. It is
feared that Austria, seeing the Russian game, will hasten to strike
before Russia is prepared.
Hopes ot peace are now concentrated on the chances tha*:
Russia can delay Austria until Russia's huge army is ready for
the field, when the sight of so tremendous a force in battle array
might compel Austria, even though supported by Germany, to
accept a compromise.
The mobilization of the British fleet, however, and tts sailing]
under sealed orders have caused the belief that a break-down oJ
the Russo-Austrian negotiations is nearer, in the opinion of gov?
ernment officials, than the carefully censored dispatches published
in the newspapers show to the public.
The exchange of telegrams between the Czar and the KaiseiJ
and also between the Czar and the Emperor Francis Joseph is
considered another significant sign that an appreciable degree of
tension has been reached.
Berlin understands that Austria will attack both Servia and
Montenegro, and there is no explanation of the decision to attack
Montenegro except that of a scheme of territorial aggrandizement.
The Montenegrin soldiery is concentrated along the Bosnian
frontier. A Montenegrin brigade with a mountain battery is re?
ported near Priboj. where women were busy building earthworks.
Austria has also bombarded Belgrade, setting fire to the city.
and Servia replied by blowing up the bridge over the Save.
A private telegram received in London last night says that
Russia has definitely decided to support Servia at all hazards.
Other dispatches say that direct negotiations between Austria and
Russia have been broken off by Austria for a reason not stated.
It is understood that Great Britain is about to offer a fresh
suggestion for a settlement, but only the smallest hope is enter?
tained of its success.
