Moving Troops Arouse
Patriotism in Berlin
BERLIN, July 28. Large bodies of troops in field uniform and
equipment moving through the streets of Berlin aroused the greatest
excitement in the city and indicated the sudden turn for the worse
aken in the Austro-Servian situation.
It was officially declared that the movement of troops was of
no significance as they were merely changing quarters, but this ex
planation was not accepted by the crowds in the streets, roused to
uild outbursts of patriotism.
The government has issued an order prohibiting further street
demonstrations. Twenty-seven socialist and other anti-war meetings
are scheduled for tonight.
Runs on all banks were increasing today. At Prague, $8,000,000

seem small by comparison.
Servia one of the little nations of the
world has not much of an army. Latest
figures, prepared this year, show that
her army in time of peace numbers
S2.000 men. Her war strength is 240.000.
and in addition to this force she has
an unorganized body of men, who, in
case of d!re,necesstt could be called on
for service numbering 60,000 more. This
body of men would be but a speck com
pared with the tremendous armies
which would be called upon to shoulder
arms if Russia, France, and Great
Britain, composing the triple entente,
took up the cause of Servia.
Russia in Lead.
Russia, leads all the big countries
mentioned both In peace strength and
war footing, although her war footing
Is but 300,000 in excess of that of Ger
many. She has 1,290.000 men in times of
peace and 6.000,000 as a war footing.
France has 720,000 for a peace guard
and -1,000,000 as a war footing. Great
Britain has a peace footing of 254,000
and a war footing of 730,000. The total
armies of the Triple Entente number
2,264.500 In times of peace and the gi
gantic number of 10,230,000 in tlmvs of
war. The same three countries have a
combined force of 8,200,00 unorganized
men of military age who could be
drawn on In case of emergency. This
would make the stupendous number of
men available for actual service in the
Triple Entente, exclusive of those or
Servia, nearly 20,000,000.
34,000,000 Men Available.
The totals of the three countries- com

unorganized force of -men of military
strength which numbers 6,200,000, or
about 14.000,000 men who could In a
pinch be called on for service.
Three of the Balkan states which
might possibly become Involved In the
Imbroglio are Rumania, Bulgaria and
Greece. The combined peace footing of

in Suffrage Appeal. .. .
The stay-at-home members of the
Congressional Union for Women's
Suffrage today are planning a flank
movement on those Congressmen who
have been seklng to arold the issue
behind the claim that their wives are
opposed to suffrage. In several In
stances, at least, it has come to the
attention cf Miss Lucy Burns, ot the
union, that the opinion entertained
by the ladles In question was in
reaUty quite different from that indi
cated by their husbands.
' So a committee has been orcanized
to Interview quietly the wives of all
Congressmen who have given this
excuse, ascertain their actual views,
and confrot the vote-seeking hus
band In question in an endeavor to
force them upon record.
It is believed that in some instances
it will be nossible even to enlist the
actlvei support of the wives in over
coming the obiectlons of tho Con
gressmen as well as In furthering tho
suffrage cause otherwise.
