OF HUNDREDS, IS REPORT
Great Britain, While Desiring Settle
ment by Diplomatic Means, Will
Be on War Footing and in Po
sition to Protect Intereeta
If Necessary.
l^ondon, Aug. 3.—There are only
two factors giving the faintest hope of
averting a general European war.
First, Russia and Austria are engaged
again in direct negotiations second,
both Great Britain and Prance are
using their utmost endeavors in favor
Of peace.
The Disturbing Factors.
On the other hand, Russia has or
dered a general mobilization and Ger
many has declared a state of siege,
which is undoubtedly a prelude to, if
It doea not cover, mobilization.
Another Report.
A very circumstantial, though aa
yet unconfirmed report published in
Rome, says that Germany is about to
demand from both Russia and France
the immediate cessation of mobiliza
tion. Yet another rumor has It that
the German ambassador has notified
the French government of his early
departure.
Great Britain is practically, though
not officially, mobilised and the small
er European states, as a precaution,
have ordered the mobilisation of their
armies—Belgium, Holland and Swit
Borland, to protect tholr territory from
being used as a highway for the bel
ligerents Norway. Sweden and Den
mark to guard themselves on general
principles. Italy makes no announce
ment and although a rumor credits
her with the decision not to partici
pate in the atruggle, there Is little
doubt that abe is making ready for
mobilisation.
Communication Cut Off.
Communication acroes Europe haa
been cut oif and there is a universal
application of the censorship, with the
result that it la impossible to obtain
any aoaurate knowledge of what mili
tary operations are going on in Ser
via. All oodo telegrams are refused,
to abort, all the European nations are
becooOng Isolated from each other by
vaUwty and telephone. Many Ameri
can travelers have boon held up by the
^•apeaslon of international trains.

CANADA WILL AID ENGLAND
MEETING IS HELD TO PLAN FOR
EVENTUALITIES.
Plan Defense and Prepare for Protec
tion of the St. Lawrence River
and Bay of Fundy.
Ottawa, Ont., Aug. 1.—Canada ia
making preparations to aid England
with regiments should the mother
country become involved in the Eu
ropean conflict. An emergency meet
ing of the Canadian militia council
was held here. in later of Militia
Hughes presided.
It was learned that the meeting was
called in consequence of messages
from the war office to consider what
steps should be taken to protect, if
necessary, Quebec, Montreal, and
other cities on the St. Lawrence river
and St Johns and other Bay of Fundy
points from raiding cruisers.
The defenses of Halifax are consid
ered sufficient, but the St. l^awrence
and Bay of Fundy ports will be pro
tected by mines should England be
come involved.
The most expeditious way of rais
ing regiments for service with the
British armies in Europe was consid
ered. If England enters active hostili
ties Canada will at once offer aid and
volunteers will be enlisted for service
in Europe.
Canada sent 8,000 men to the aid
of England in South Africa. It Is es
timated that Canada could raise, arm
and embark 30,000 men inside of two
months.
A plan of mobilization has been pre
pared by the Canadian headquarters
staff.
The British government has been
notified to count on aid from Canada.
A call for the Canadian parliament to
meet will be made if
more threatening.

IB THE LAST OF BIG STOCK
MARKETS OF WORLD TO
ACT.
EUROPEANS UNLOADING STOCK
Wall Street Betides Not to Bear Bur
den of Those Financially Panio*
Stricken—Claimed Position
of Banks Sound.
Xew York, Aug. 3.—The vast and
complex machinery of the securities
markets of the world has come to a
halt for an indefinite period.
Unprecedented Occurrence.
It was an occurrence unprecedented
in history. With all Europe seemingly
on the verge of war, the constitutional
exchanges closed several days ago
with the London market following, the
New York Stock exchange would have
been called upon to bear the weight of
the world's financial burdens.
It bad virtually done so all the week,
for while the London market was
open, transactions were only nominal.
The unloading of stocks here by panic-{
stricken Europe during the last few
days and the consequence collapse of
prices made history in Wall Street.
To continue longer to bear the burden,
in the opinion of the bankers, whose
influence determined the course of
events in the street, would have been
hazardous in the extreme.
Follows Period of Agitation.
After a period of agitation and ex
treme nervous tension, it was decided
10 minutes before the hour set for
open tag of business that the exchange
would not be opened. That aetlon
closed the last greatest market of the
world.
As it was there were four assign
ments, three of them announced on
the cotton exchange. The firms are
Flower ic Co., bankers 8. H. P. Pell
A Co., stock, cotton and grain brok
ers Homer, Howe ft Co.. and F. J.
Fredericksoa ft Co., both Cotton brok
ers.
With the exception of Flower ft Co..
the aaalgnmeats are understood to
have been caused by the recent ex
treme decline In cotton operations.
Pell ft Co. wore reported to have been
the leading firm on the long side of
the cotton market and to have been
caught with enormous commitments
on their hands when the brenk came.
Flower ft Co., who are not members
of the cotton exchange, are said to
have been embarraaaed by the break
la stooka. No atatemeat of assets aad
llabllltlea waa given by aay of the
firms.
Werat of Marat Paased.
It Is the impression that the worst
of the storm baa paaaed. Most of
New York'e leading boa ITS asserted
that tha position of the banks la soaad.

U. S. HAS PLENTY OF 60LD
THIS COUNTRY PREPARED TO
SUPPLY EUROPEAN DEMAND.
Enough Metal Being Transferred to
Ntw York From Sub-Treasuriea
to Meet All Calls.
Washington, Aug. 1.—European de
mands upon New Ycrk for gold will
be met by transfers from the United
States sub-treasuries so as to keep the
metropolis always sufficiently supplied
to meet all calls.
Treasury officials said it would be
against public policy to make known
details of such shipments, but they
emphasized the preparedness of the
United States for taking care, with
out inconvenience to Itself, of almost
any demand which, even in event of
war, Europe reasonably might be ex
pected to make on the gold supply of
this country.
It was declared the United States
now has more gold than almost any
two other nations combined, and that
with Europe buying heavily from food
and manufacturing markets here on
account of reduction in working forces
at home, it was almost inconceivable
that a situation could arise where Am
erica would be drained of gold to an
injurious extent.
DISCUSS POSITION OF JAPAN
Washington Diplomats Talk Over Pee
eltoltitles of Such
Move.
Washington, Aug. 1.—The possibil
ity that Japan might become Involved
in a general war should her ally, Eng
land, be drawn into the threatened
vortex in Europe, waa discussed in
diplomatic circles here. The treaty
of alliance between Great Britain and
Japan, signed in 1905 and renewed in
1911, provides that the countries shall
support each other in the event of an
attack or aggressive action against
either in eastern Asia or India by an
other power.
From time to time there have been
rumors of secret clnuees. greatly ex
tending the scope of the convention
and making it apply to hostilities con
ducted outalde of tbe Far East, bat the
existence of any such extra provisions
is unknown to the state department
or to the Japanese embassy here.
a pan'a fteiag drawn into any war
that might Involve Great Britain with
Germany or Austria or Italy is believ
ed' to hinge entirely upon naval devel
opments in the Far Eaat.
