should publicly recognize the instance
of this alleged conspiracy and condemn
it; to suppress publications which in
cited to hatred of the Austrian Gov
ernment; to dissolve the societies, also
to dismiss from the public schools all
teachers and textbooks tnat wouia in
cite the propaganda; to remove mili
tary officers that they would name as
implicated. All this she demanded
that Servia to reply to within forty
eight hours. No evidence was then
submitted or has since been, by Aus
tria, or anv of the European powers,
supporting the accusations contained
in the demand. At the time this was
presented the German Emperor and
trench President and Prime Minister
were absent from their respective
capitals. This demand was one that
was so harsh that Sir Edward Grey,
writing to the English Ambassador at
Berlin, said, "I never before have seen
one state address another independent
state a document of such a formidable
character. They could not receive it
without resentment." Germany offi
cially announced that, "the course of
procedure and the demands of Austria
are only just and moderate.' Sir
Edward Grey instantly began some
means of peaceful settlement.
During the next ten days he sent
forty-seven letters and telegrams to
English Ambassadors in the foreign
capitals. He had to consider in each
of these only such measures as his
country would back him in. He wrote
to Servia that if it were proved that
their officials were accomplices in the
murder she ought to give Austria the
fullest satisfaction. He wrote to
France, Italy and Germany, urging
that if Russia took any action in de
fense of Servia, that England, France,
Italy and Germany should work to
gether for the sake of peace. When
objection was made by Germany that
a court of arbitration could not be cal
led together without the consent of
Austria and Russia, lie replied that he
was ready to take u any method by
which the four powers could get to
gether for peace. Servia asked
Austria for more evidence of the truth
of the charges preferred against
them and agreed to go as far as their
Constitution would allow them in sup
pressing Servian agitation against
Austria. Russia, France and England
were willing to meet the proposal of
Sir Edward Grey. The Russian
Foreign Minister promised to use all
his influence to pursuade Servia to
give Austria satisfaction, but said that
her territorial integrity and rights
as a sovereign state must be respect
Austria steadfastly refused every
offer of mediation. To this day she
has never given Servia or any of the
European powers any evidence of the
truth of the charges preferred against
the Servian Government or any of its
officials in the assasmation of Arch
duke Francis Ferdinand. To all the
proposals of a conference by the
powers Germany interposed a con
In a nutshell, the issue between
Germany and Austria on the one side,
and the other great powers on the
other, may thus be defined: Austria
wished to be let alone and do what
she would with Servia; Germany in
sisted that Austria should be let alone;
to this demand Russia interposed a
decided negative; but she was willing
to leave the issue to an impartial tri
bunal in which she (Russia) would
have no part
The Russian Czar, in his message to
the German Emperor, expressed the
practically unanimous feeling of his
people; "An ignominious war has been
declared against a weak coutry, and in
Russia the indignation which I fully
share is tremendous I fear that very
soon I shall be unable to resist the
pressure exercised upon me and that
1 shall be forced to take measures
which shall lead tc War."
Germany replied that she could not
see it in this light, but said Austria
l:new that the promise of Servia, ai
long as it was on paper, was unre
liable. While these negotiations were
going on the danger of a general Eu
ropean war grew daily. Austria
pushed farther her invasion of Serviu.
Russia began to prepare her army to
defend Servia against Austria. Ger
many began to prepare her army for
a possible invasion by Russia. France
began to prepare her army for a pos
sible invasion of France by Germany.
Still sir Edward Grey continued his
efforts for peace, urging Russia to de
lay her mobilization. Russia de
clared she was ready to demobilize I

He alHO asked Fran- and Germany if
they would tie wili ng to recognize
Kelirian neutrality in case of war.
France said yes. Germany, no. The I
following day the German Govern
ment sent word to Russia requiring
i their troops to be demobilized, and ac-
! clared that she would order her whole
army to the Rusiian and trench
frontiers if within twelve hours they
did not comply with her demands.
This notice, given July 31, made war
inevitable. Two days later Berlin
made formal announcement that "cer
tain Russian troops having crossed the
frontier, Germany and Russia are now
