The wide discrepancy In the complete

change that wiped out an apparent

to a switch In the method of tallying

PARIS. Nov. 8. Two groupa of Eu

together compose the so-called concert
of Europe, today found themselves
badly out of tune over the rupture be

With Russia leading, France and
England are inclined to support the
Servian claims on which Austria-Hungary,
encouraged by Germany and Italy
apparently has placed a direct veto.

Admiral Austin M. Knight. They
should be ready to sail within 24 htfUrs
and under ordinary conditions should

25 if they proceed with dispatch.
Full complements of marines wjll be

issued late today for assembling the
required number at Philadelphia. From
the Norfolk Navy-yard, 400 marines
will be drawn. They will go by spe

felt by American missionaries and edu

murder, abandoned an automobile at an

crime and never has reappeared to
