Vienna. Austria, July 27 A com
munication issued by the Austro-Hun
garian foreign office today sets forth
ihe Austrian view of tho Servian re
ply to Austria's note demanding the
cessation of the Pan-Servian agitation
and the punishment of those con
oerued in the assassination at Sarnyp
vo of Archduke Francis Ferdinand
and his consort. The communication
alRO gives the reasons for Austria's
dissatisfaction with Servia's repiy It
"The object of the Servian note
Is to create the false impression that
th Servian government is prepared
in creat measure to comply with our
dema nds.
Note Filled With Dishonesty.
"As a matter of fact, however Ser
via s note is filled with the spirit of
dishonesty which clearly lets It be
seen that thp Servian government is
not seriously determined to put an
end to the culpable tolerance it hith
erto has extended to Intrigues against
Hip Austro-Hungarian monarchy.
1 "The Servian not contains such
i far-reaching reservations and limita
tions not only regarding tne general
I principles of our action, but also in
I regard to the individual claims we
I have put forward that the conces
sions actually made by Servla be
come insignificant.
1 "In particular our demand for the
participation of the Austro-Hungarl-!
J an authorities in investigation to de-1
led accomplices in the conspiracy on
Servian territory' has been rejected.
I while our request that measures be
taken against that section of the Ser
vian press hostile to Austria-Hungary
ha6 bpen declined and our wish that I
the Servian government take the
I necessary measures to prevent the
dissolved Autrophobe associations
(onlinuing their activity under an
other name and under another form,
has not even been considered
Since the claims iu the Austro
Hungarian note of July 23 regarding
'r Hie attitude hitherto adopted by Ser-
la. represent the minimum nf what
is necessary for the establishment of
permanent peace with the southeast
ern monarchy, the Servian answer
must be regarded as unsatisfactory
Premature War Movements.
"That the Servian government it
self is conscious that Its note is not
sere ptable to us. is proved by the
2 circumstances that it proposes at the
end of the note to submit the dispute
i0 arbitration an invitation which is
thrown Into its proper light by the
fact that three hours before handing
, in the note a few minutes before the
L expiration of the time limit the mo-
- billzation of the Servians took place"
It was pointed out here today that
Austria-Hungary being a signatory to
0. the Becond Hague convention would
be obliged formally to declare war,
f but as Servla did not sign that con-
,n vention, such a declaration might per
M haps be regarded as unnecessary in
IB this Instance.
St. Petersburg. July 27 In spite
