IHEWAR SITUATION of an the by J. is to a WHILE TURKEY BALKAN FORCES ARE TRYING FOR PEACE, OTHERS FOR WAR. RUSSIA AND GERMANY TAKE A HAND Servia Has Modified Her Demands, Enabling Turkey's Army to Retire With Honors of War and to Keep Her Line of Forts. London.—Interest in the war situa tion has shifted from the belligerents, whose delegates are preparing to meet with an apparent sincere desire to work out the terms for a truce, to the great neighborhood powers—Aus tria and Russia. These rivals are strengthening their border forces at an hour when the statesmen of all the powers are spreading broadcast assur ances that their only policy is to sub ordinate rivalries and interests to the common welfare of Europe in the cause of peace. Countries Adopting War Footing.

Three Berlin papers purport to have information of the Austrian prepara tions, which include the mobilization of three army corps for the Russian frontier and reenforcements for Bos nia, while from Prague an account is telegraphed of German military tivity. Such warlike preparations, coupled with the visit of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, crown prince of Austria Hungary, to the German emperor, and the recent conference which the Aus trian chief of staff, Field Marshal Von Schomua, had with Lieutenant General Count Von Moltke, chief of the Ger man general staff, naturally excites acute curiosity.

GRANTED MORE PAY MORE THAN 30,000 LOCOMOTIVE ENGINEERS OF THE EAST GET A RAISE. THE DISPUTE WAS IN ARBITRATION Report Demands That Public Be Pro tected—People More Affected by Strike Than Either Capital ists or Labor. Washington.—Thirty thousand loco motive engineers on 52 eastern rail roads gain a partial victory in their demand for more wages, under the award just announced by the board of arbitration. The board holds that the public, which had no voice in the controversy, had more at stake than the engineers or railroads, and emphasizes the ne cessity of plans to safeguard the pub lic against the possibility of a future strike. "It would be difficult to exaggerate the seriousness of such a calamity," reads the report. "It is safe to say that the large cities of the east would find the supply of many articles of food exhausted within a week. The in terests of the public so far exceed those of the parties to a controversy as to render the former paramount. To this paramount interest both the rail road operators and the employes should submit." The board advocates the creation of federal and state wage commissions. These commissions, the board sug gests, should be vested with virtually the same powers over organized labor as public utilities commissions now exercise over quasi public corporations. The award dates back to May 1 and will hold for one year from that date. Mr. Morrissey, representing the en gineers, has indicated doubt as to its; renewal. The attitude of the railroads, as out lined in a statement Monday by Presi dent Willard of the Baltimore & Ohio, who represented the railroads on the arbitration board, is indefinite as to the future.
