SERVIAN REPLY TO ULTIMATUM DISHONEST
DECLARES FOREIGN OFFICE AT VIENNA TODAY
London, July 27. European na
tions continue to prepare for
eventualities. The British first
fleet of twenty-eight battleships is
coaling at Portland.
St. Petersburg. July 27. The
mobilization of the Russian army
will proceed immediately. The em
peror has fully approved the de
cision of his ministers to this ef
fect. Washington, July 27. Official
dispatches from St. Petersburg
say the Russian minister of war
considers war be:een Russia ar.d
Austria-Hungary almost inevitable.
Orders for the complete mobiliza
tion of the Russian army are con
firmed. Vienna, July 27. The foreign of
fice has issued a statement setting
forth Austria's view of Servia's
reply to the Austrian note It says:
"The object of the Servian note is
to create the false impression that
the Servian government is prepar
ed in a great measure with our de
mands. As a matter of fact, how
ever, Servia's note is filled with the
spirit of dishonesty, which dearly
lets it be known that Servia is not
seriously considering putting an
end to the tolerance it has extend
ed to the intrigues against the
Austro - Hungar ian monarchy."
London, Julv 27. It is reported
that Foreign Minister Grey has
msde successful representations
to Germany, Italy and France for
a conference of the representatives
of those countries in England in
view of co-operative mediation in
the Austro-Servian crisis. The
Italian and German ambassadors
saw Grey this morning.
Grey has invited Austria-Hungary,
Servia and Russia to suspend
operations pending the result of
the proposed conference to be held
in London with the German,
French and Italian ambassadors.
He he not yet received complete
replies. Italy has accepted.
In tne Comons, Grey said:
"I understand the German gov
ernment is favorable to mediation
in principle as between Russia
and Austria, but to our particular
proposal to apply that principle
by means of a conference, the
German government has not yt
replied."
Grey expressed the opinion that
the failure of these efforts to
bring a settlement would lead to
the "greatest catastrophe which
could befall the concert of Europe,
and the consequences would be in
calculable." Austria Apparently Bent on War.
London, July J". Sunday's develop
ments appear to furnish new promt
that Austria Is determined to make
war on Si r ia. and the possibilities of
general gatropoos war seem greater
than have ever before confronted the
resent generation.
The Servian reply to Austrias ulti
matum was an acceptance of almost all
the imperious .1. -mauds. Notwithstand

Vienna government today nave the

Russia's Attitude the Crux.
The question whether Russia will
take up arms to save her Slav protege
from a (rushing blow is the crucial
feature of the situation the feature
on which the peace of all Kurope hing

ordered the strictest censorship of

powers that it considers that the Aus-tro-Servian
quarrel concerns those, na
