friendly to France. Lartre consign

Hero Kind Joy In ltjnrlnth.
One of Cazeneuvc's comrades was
telling me the other day that before
that hero was killed, esch day he
hurried in the. morning to look at the
little, plot of ground where he had a

Another thins showing the- attitude

who has already incurred the
hatred of the Germans and whom the
Austrian Ambassador has endeavored
to have arrested on the charge of libel
and lese majestc.
The particular caricature to which
the Ambassador most objects Is simple
and terrible. It is the stable of Beth
lehem. The three magi come to offer
their gifts to tho child. They are on
their knees before him, and in their
bands they hold their gifts. Gaspar

Pictures Far From Neutral.
Another picture is that or a man gone
mad. with tho body of his little child

"It is my little Toinette, whom they
have killed as a franc-tireur."
Or another of three men dead before
a wall, and near by a mother who tries
to warm to life the stiff arm of her boy;
for. says the Inscription, "Culture has
passed by here."
Or another called "The Hostages"
a priest with his eyes turned toward
tho skies: a father and son, evidently
of the better class perhaps the Mayor;
this has usually been the case all
about to be shot.
l.'p to now none of the drawings have
been for sale in France. They are all
well done, Willi a careful attention to
detail, a simple, awful realism, and yet
an art that makes one think of Rem
brandt, or, in some of the landscapes,
liobbema. Way outside the realm of
neutrality, I suppose you are saying.
And selling them in Holland for the
French lied Cross!
Raemakcrs has defended himself to
the Austrian Ambassador with the say
ing of Professor Tietss that there is no
neutrality in the face of crime.

but Italy Followed With
VIENNA, via London. May 22. Baron
Stephen Burian von Bajecz."s.he Aus-tro-Hungarian
Minister for Foreign Af
faire., today handed to the Italian Am
bassador a note expressing "painful
surprise" at the decision of Italy to
"put an end in such an abrupt manner
to the treaty which was based on the
community of our most important po
litical interests, which has guaran
teed security and peace to our states
for so many years and which has ren
dered Italy meritorious services."
When the conflict assumed a Europ
ean character. Italy proclaimed her
neutrality without "throwing out the
slightest suggestion that this war.

prepared so long beforehand, could he

liance of its raison d'etre," and "made
no communication which could Justify
the belief that it regarded the pro
ceedings of Austria-Hungary as "a
flagrant violation, both in letter and
In spirit, of the alliance and treaty.'"
Original .Neutrality Deplored.
The Cabinets-of Vienna and Berlin,
even though deploring Italy's resolu
tion to remain neutral, "a resolution
which, in our view, was hardly com-)
patible with the spirit of the treaty,
nevertheless loyally admitted the view
of the Italian government, and an ex
change of views which then took place,
established unaltered the maintenance
of the triple alliance."
Under article seven of the treaty
Italy presented claims which aimed at
securing certain compensations in the
event of Austria-Hungary obtaining
advantages from the war. territorial or
otherwise, in the Balkan Peninsula.
Austria-Hungary accepted this view
point and declared herself ready to
submit the question to examination, at
the same time pointing out that so long
as the eventual advantages accruing
to Austiya-Hungary remained unknown
it would bo difficult to fix such com
pensations. Italy field to Ilnve Agreed.
Baron Burian von Rajerz contended
that Italy shared this view, ss was
shown in the declaration made by the
late Marquis Antonio di San Giuliano,
dated August 2f last year, in which the
then Italian foreign minister said that
"it would be premature to speak of
Nevertheless, Baron Burian contin

ready to begin conversations on tho
subject and when Italy made her de
mands Austria-Hungary accepted everi
this as a basis for negotiations, al
though in its opinion Article VII of the
treaty never referred to the territory
of the treaty-bound parties, but related
purely and simply to the Balkan peninsula.
While it was impossible to accede to
all the demands, Austria-Hungary,
with sincere desire to reach an under
standing, made sacrifices which were
only Justified by "a desire to uphold
the alliance existing for so many years

Replying to the Italian objection that
the concessions offered by Austria
Hungary were only to be realized ai
an indefinite time, namely, at the end
of the war. Baron Burian says that
Austria-Hungary was ready to offer
all necessary guarantees for the pur
pose of preparing for this transfer and
insure "its even being carried out at
no distant date."
In conclusion, the note says:
"The Royal Italian Government, in
an arbitrary manner, has disburdened
Itself of all its obligations, and tho
Austro-Hungarian Government declines
responsibility for all the consequences
that may arise from this procedure."
