RUSSIAN TROOPS C
MANIFESTO THAT BRO
International News Service.
Vienna-?The great and cruel war
chat now bids fair t<} devastate and
impoverish all Europe was directly,
though not primarily, caused by Aus
tria-Hungary's declaration of war
against Servia. Slavonic Russia came
to the aid of the Slavs of Servia and
Germany took her place beside Aus
tria. This brought about a clash of
the triple alliance and the triple
entente and France and England were
The real "last straw" of the great
conflict, therefore, that "broke the
camel's back" of the peace of Europe
was the manifesto of the aged Em
peror Joseph of Austria-Hungary.
For the first time this edict is here
with given in full, as the ruler of the
dual monarchy wrote it:
Dear Count Sturgkh:
I have resolved to instruct the min
isters of my household and foreign af
fairs to notify the rqyal Servian gov
ernment of the beginning of a state of
war between the monarchy and Servia.
In this fateful hour I feel the need of
turning to my beloved people. I com
mand you, therefore, to publish the
To My Peoples: It was my fervent
wish to consecrate the years, which,
by the grace of God, still remain to
me, to the words of peace and to pro
tect my peoples from the heavy sac
rifices and burdens of war. Provi
dence, in its wisdom, has otherwise
decreed. The intrigues of a malev
olent opponent compel me, in the de
fense of the honor of my monarchy,
for the protection of its dignity, and
its position as a power for the security
of its possessions, to grasp the sword
after long years of peace. With a
quickly forgetful ingratitude, the king
dom of Servia which, from the first
beginnings of its independence as a
siaie unui quim rwuuujf, uaa uccu
supported and assisted by my ances
" tors, has "for 7ears trodden the path of
open hostility to Austria-Hungary.
When, after three decades of fruitful
work for peace in Bosnia and Her
zegovina, I extended my sovereign
rights to those lands, my decree called
forth in the kingdom of Servla, whose
rights were in no wise injured, out
breaks of unrestrained passion and
the bitterest hate. My government at
that time employed the handsome
privileges of the stronger, and with
extreme consideration and leniency
only requested Servia to reduce her
army to a peace footing and to prom
ise that, for the future, she would
tread the path of peace and friendship.
Guided by the same spirit of modera
tion, my government, wnen servia,
two years ago was embroiled in a
struggle with the Turkish empire, re
stricted its action to the defence of
the most serious and vital interests of
the monarchy. It was to this atitude
that Servia primarily owed the attain
ment of the objects of that war.
Hatred Blazed Higher.
The hope that the Servian king
dom would appreciate the patience
and love of peace of my government
and would keep its word, has not been
fulfilled. The flame of its hatred for
myself and my house has always
blazed higher; the design to tear from
us by force inseparable portions of
Austria-Hungary has been made man
fest with less and less disguise. A
criminal propaganda has extended
over the frontier with the object of
destroying the foundations of order in
the southeastern part of the monarchy;
of making the people, to whom I, in my
paternal affection, extended my full
confidence, waver in Its loyalty to the
ruling "house and to the fatherland; of
leading astray its growing youth and
inciting it to mischievous deeds of
a n rl 'hie'Vl trPflSfiri. A SerieS
of murderous attacks, an organized,
carefully prepared, and well carried
out conspiracy, whose fruitful success
wounded me and my loyal peoples to

of those secret machinations which
were operated and directed in Servia.
A halt must be called to these in
tolerable proceedings, and an end must
be put to the incessant provocations
of Servia. The honor and dignity of
my monarchy must be preserved un
In vain did my government make an
attempt to accomplish this object by
peaceful means and to induce Servia,

LESSON FOR AUGUST 30

der therefore unto Caesar the things that
are Caesar's; and unto God the things
that are God's." Matt. 22:21 R. V.
The title of this lesson suggests
more than the portion of Scripture se
lected seems to warrant. We have
seen in previous lessons how the Mas
ter condemned and denounced the

This led the Pharisees to take coun
sel how they might ensnare him (v.
15). Three questions were asked, one
political, one doctrinal and one ethi
cal. Our next lesson deals with the
I. The First Question, w. 15-22.
This parable of the wicaed husband
man (ch. 21) seems to have- been
clearly understood by the Pharisees
(v. 45). While It stung It did not
bring them to repentance. The hard
ening effect of unaccepted truth is one
of its most terrible results upon the
human heart The record tells us
plainly (ch. 21:46) why these Phari
sees were withheld from at once put
ting Jesus out of the way. They
therefore resorted to secret methods
and endeavored to bring him into con
flict with the Roman government. The
Pharisees entered into this plot to en
tangle Jesus with their most deter
mined enemietf, the Herodian party
(Mark 12:13). It was a good scheme
from their viewpoint to get Jeeus to
utter something treasonable and then
to turn him over to Herod, who was
a pup.pet of Rome. These Pharisees
scorned to pay taxes to this same gov4
ernment with which they are now con
niving. They began with words of
smooth flattery (v. 16). The devil is
never so subtile, so dangerous nor so
malicious as when he flatters. Apart
from Jesus each party would have
given quite a different reply to this
question. In fancy we can see them
as they must have gloatingly ex
claimed, "Now we will see him en
trapped." If Jesus declared it illegal
to nay tribute to Caesar they could at
once formulate a charge of sedition
against him. On the other hand, for
him to declare it proper thus to pay
tribute to a foreign government would
seem to them for him^o deny his mes
sianic claim, according to their under
standing of the messianic program.
Calling for a Roman denarluS, a
legal taxpaying coin worth about 17
cents, he asked, "Whose Is this image
- J' r-' ig

^ ^ of God." Mar
riage Is a relation of this present state
of affairs only and not with the resur
rection life. We who are worthy of
Ute resurrection of the dead neither
marry nor are given in marriage
(Lake 20:35), nor do we die any
more (Luke 20:36), but are equal to
the angels, e. g., in the Immortality of
their nature (Luke 20:30). More than
that we are "sons of God" (Luke
20:36). These Sadducees accepted
only the Pentateuch, yet of this which
they professed to accept they were
ignorant Here as elsewhere God defi
nitely and repeatedly declares himself
to be the God of Abraham, Isaac and
Jacob. Jesus proclaims these men,
their patriarchs, as yet alive.
Jesus accuses them of error in be
ing ignorant of these Scripturee. This
ignorance was not among the un
learned and can be commonly dupli
cated today among those who profess
to be scholars. Most especially do we
find a marked ignorance of "the power
of God." Some of these discomfited
ones could not conceal their admira
tion of Jesus' reply (Luke 20:39).
The Teaching. Jesus here shows ue
the true relation of himself and of his

the lav.s of the state are Just and
true and in harmony with the law of
God it is the duty of Christian people
to support and to obey them. Jesus
would ally himself with neither party,
thereby avoiding complicity with any
measure of evil. We may likewise
maintain a siTuHar relationship with
God and 6peak with authority in the
correction of abuses, and in the direc
