SAN FRANCISCO, July 26. (Spe
cial.) Thousands of Servians of San
Francisco are anxiously awaiting a dec
laration of war between their native
country and Austria. They nre long
ing for the opportunity to take arms
against their ancient enemy and de
clare the time Is opportune for a "final
auppresslon" of Austria.
All day today the leading spirits of
the local Servian colony held informal
conferences. The latest phases of the
European situation were eagerly dis
cussed. Probabilities of war were
greeted with smiles and hearty hand
shakes. It was the opinion of those who
Fathered at the Servian headquarters
that in event of hostilities a formid
able force of enthusiastic Servians
could be recruited quickly In this city,
and that-Servians from throughout the
state would come to San Francisco to
Join the volunteers.
The Servians of San Francisco also
Indicated today they would raise funds
for the transportation of the volun
teers to the fatherland. This spirit of
patriotism was equally manifest among
the women of the Ucal Servian col
ony. Many of them offered to assist
In the collection of funds and the prep
aration of extra clothing Tor the vol
unteers. M. Vevtlch. editor of the Servian
Herald, who was today the center of
enthusiastic groups of his fellow
countrymen clamoring for the latest
news, was of opinion there might not
"Russia would be forced to back up
Servia." said Yevtich. "and Germany
would naturally take up the cause of
Austria. Russia is growing, and Is
today one of the most powerful na
tions in Europe). The defeat of Ger
many would mean the partition of Aus
tria, and Austria does not want to lose
her identity as a nation."
CONFLICT IS HELD BEGUN

lster of Finance will raise 65.OU0.O0O
for the governments immediate re
quirements, and adds that negotiations
between the powers for the localizing
of the conflict will continue.
In diplomatic circles there Is a feel

tions will be successful, and It was said
by one diplomat today that "France has

on Servla's behalf."

Minister to Servla, who

The imperial decree Issued yesterday
(jives the government enormous powers
to insure the secrecy of its measures.
The authorities are entitled to open all
letters. Only telegrams approved by
the censor can be dispatched to any
point. Newspapers publishing details
of military preparations or movements
can be suppressed. All the roads are
guarded by sentries with orders to use
their arms on any person who falls to
top when commanded.
Servians Intensely Patriotic.
The prospect of war is not regarded
bere as child's play.
The Servians put 400,000 men In the
field during the Balkan wars. Both
officers and men are passionately pa
triotic. It Is expected that Servla will
attempt to hold the front along the
Danube und the Drina with only a weak
force, while the greater part of the
army will be concentrated In the cen
tral district, probably near Nish or
Kraguyvett. and another force in Novl
pazar, which will be destined for of
fensive operations against Bosnia.
According to rumor, the first encoun
ter between Austria and Servla has oc
curred near Semendrla, on the Danube
14 miles southeast of Belgrade. Some
vessels conveying Austrian infantry
were said to have been fired on from
the Servian side of the Danube and to
have returned the fire.

the Servian general staff, who was ar
rested shortly after 10 o'clock last night
at Kelenfoeld, near Budapest, while on
his way to Belgrade, Is still a prisoner.
He profrssed great surprise at his ar
rest, pleading ignorance that a state of
war existed.. He refused to enter a
motor car, but eventually was taken to
military headquarters. Four others in
civilian clothes, who are believed to be
Servian staff officers, were arrested at
the same time. General Putnlk's daugh

SUMMARY OF SERVIAN REPLY TO AUSTRIAN ULTIMATUM,
GRANTING ALL DEMANDS EXCEPT ONE.
LONDON, July 2. Servla's reply to the Austrian ultimatum Is
JelTeZi to the -publication in its official Journal, on
the front page, of the formal declaration submitted by the Austrian
government, condemning the subversive propaganda and deploring its
fatal consequences; regretting the participation of bervlan officers In
this propaganda: repudiating any further Interference with Austro
Hungarian interests, and warning all Servians that rigorous pro
ceedings will be taken In the future against any persons guilty of
Second Servla agrees to communicate this decision to the army
in the form of an order of the day.
Third It promises to dissolve those societies which may be con
sidered capable of conducting Intrigues against Austria.
Fourth Revision of the laws governing the press.
Fifth Dismissal from the army and navy of officers, and the re
moval also of civilian officials whose participation In an anti-Austrian
propaganda may be proved. The Servian government, however,
protasts agalnft Austrian officials taking part in the inquiry.
Sixth The Servian government asks for an explanation as to Just
what part the Austrian officials are to be called upon to take In the
Inquiry into the Sarayevo plot, and it is announced that Servla can
only admit such participation as would be in accordance with Interna
tional law and good neighborly relations.
Seventh To sum up, Bervla accepts all the conditions and de
mands of Austria, and makes reservations only regarding the partici
pation of Austrians in the inquiry. It does not give its formal refusal
to this point, but confines itself to asking explanations.
Finally, If the Austrian government finds this reply Inadequate,
Servla appeals to The Hague, tribunal and to the powers which signed
the declaration of 1909 relative to Bosnia and Herzegovina.
"The Servian government," the note says, "cannot be held
responsible for manifestations of a private character, such as are
common in all lands. The Servian government has been painfully
surprised by the statements connecting perioni in the kingdom
with the Sarayevo outrage. It expected to be Invited to co-operate
in the investigation of the crime and was ready to prove by deeds
the earnestness of Its action against all persons concerning whom
convictions should be made without regard to situation, or rank."
Further on the note says:
"The government of Servla condemns all propaganda directed
against Austria-Hungary, namely all aspirations to detach from the
Austro-Hungarian monarchy territories which form a part thereof
and sincerely deplores the lamentable consequence of such criminal
actions. It regrets that certain Servian officers and officials, accord
ing to the Austrian communication, have taken part in these."
