It is understood hero that in the event
the liulgars enter Grecian territory and

The last Serbian regulars have fled

WAR BREAKS OUT ON

By Charles P Stewart. -
(United Press staff correspon

II by wireless to Lnndscnd,
England, Dec. 13. Wnr has
broken out aboard the Henry
Ford's peace argosy.
Several of the delegates,
whom the Detroit automobile
maker asked to help in straigh
tening out Europe's war tangle,
are preparing to quit the ship at
C'hristiania, Norway, and return
to America, because they allege,
the extreme pacificists have
adopted an insulting attitude
towards those upholding Presi
dent ' Wilson 's preparedness
doctrine.
Ford himself Is trying hard to
prevent an open break. He de
nies responsibility for "steam
roller" tuctics, employed by tho
extremists.
As n matter of fact, the accu
sation is not directed against
Ford, but chiefly against Rev.
Dr. Charles F. Akcd of Snn
Francisco, and Jeukin Lloyd
Jones.
A complete split is imminent.
The row broke out Friday.
The Snn Francisco divine in
troduced a meeting of- the pence
voyagers a resolution signed by
Ford and 23 others, opposing
preparedness. Aked intimated
that those who refused to sign
this document would be unload
ed at the first port. While
Ford denied that they would
bo thus unloaded, he continued
to support the anti-preparedness
group.
Tho conversation veered into
altercations in which the lan
guage became not only persouul
but profane.
Then when tho situution mndo
cooler heads fearful of a split,
they tried to rcunito the war
ring parties. Those suggesting a
compromise proposed a resolu
tion opposing competitive
armaments,, but avoided refer
ence to tho president's prepar
edness program. ,

an assistant of Brincken. Brincken on
the other hand, says he was an ac
quaintance associated with him for a
time until he learned thut ho was nn

In social circles, the "count" passed
freely here. His wife, though, Baron

San Francisco Chinese Al
ready Raising Money To
Finance Revolution
By Thomas F. Millard.
(Editor China Press, Shanghai.)
(Written for tho United Press.)
Washington, Dec. 13. The signifi
cance of Yuan Shi Kni's reported ac
ceptance of the Chinese throne does not
nppear on the surface, but lies behind
he veil of diplomatic intrigue with
Japan, the prime mover in the game.
i'hero is, however, nothing iu the
change itself to disturb China nt pres
ent or to menace tho pence of tho Far
East, as tho Japaneso foreign minister
is reported to have said. China is not
now, menacing, nor has she ever recent
ly menaced the peace of tho Far East or
any- part of the world.
Without doubt, her reversion to n
monarchy after a brief trial of the re
publican form of government suits the
vast majority of Chinese. They prefer,
too, to hnvo Yuan Shi Kni continue at
the head of the government. Moreover,
most foreigners think that a monnrchy
iB better suited to China's position nt
present. As far ns China herself is
concerned, this chnngo makes for ordo
and pcaco not for disturbance.
Japs Run a Bluff.
Tokio, Dec. 13. The Japanese press
today indignantly denounced Yunn S1,
Kni's acceptance of the Chinese
throno, and declnred he had openly
flouted Jnpnn's advice not to turn the
republic into nn empiro nt this time.
The pnpers urged thnt Japan make
proper representations.
Why then this talk of disturbance In
certain quarters!
The answer is found in tire history nf
events of tho Inst four yenrs. The revo
lution found Jnpnn intriguing to fe
ment internnl strife in Cliinn by sup
porting both sides. When lendinu
Chinese snw this trap nnd compromised
on a nominal republic, Japan fomented
the nbort.ivo rebellion 1013 hemled by
Sun Yat Sen. After the rebel leaders
fled, they took refuge in Jnpnn. I
have seen convincing evidences of this
duplicity, shown mo by Ly Yunn Hung,
lender of the revolution, who is now
vice-president.
There is not the slightest danger of
disorder in Chinn because of the chance
of government unless nn outside power
provides tho revolutionaries with nrn'v
nnd funds. Jnpnn hns wnrned Chi""
thnt disorder may iiceur, which will
justify Jnpnn in interferring. And we
can he sure that disorder will occur if
Japan can start it, thus providing a pre
text for seizing control of China's ad
ministration while a mnjority of the
other Interested powers lire Involved In
a great, war.
Americans should understand thnt if
China follows Japan's course, the H'
doctrine would probably bo destroyed
and its "open door" will be finally
closed.
Chinese Are Excited.
Ran Francisco, Dec. 13. The revolu
tionary f Initio In Snn Francisco's China
town wns funned todnv by excited or
ators who denounced the acceptance of
the throno of China by President loan
Shi Kal.
A campaign for funds to support a
revolution In China, is In full swing,
and lnrire sums nro said to have been
received from the Chinese throughout
tho United States.
Leading Chinese merchants predict
todnv that China will be torn witii

A nation-wide petition will be pre
sented to President Wilson urging him
not to rocognizo tho new monarchy.
against itself. The tarifi! or democrat
ic tinkering has reduced the treasury
balance, and that party is going ahead
with a tremendous program of national
preparedness without even the fore
sight of considering whence they will
draw the necessary money to pay lor
this program. On the president's own
admission, even without expenditures
for armament the government will
face an enormous and unprecedented
deficit by tho eud of tho fiscal year
next June.
"And, aside from tho question of
their record, the democrats split among
themselves, will face a united harmoni
ous republican party in the future."
The St. Louis delegation Is on hand,
fervently rooting to get the republican
convention, in the wake of the demo
cratic. Chicago, San Francisco and
Philadelphia delegations tomorrow,
however, will put up a strenuous fight
against her claims.
The committee will probably docide
that it has no power to impose a pri
mary upon states that have not passed
a primary low, according to Soerotary
Reynolds. Two thirds of the conven
tion delegations, however, will be elect
ed thus.

DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS
MAY BE DISCONTINUED
Emperor Is Told the Demands
Must Be Acceded To
Without Quibbling
Washington, Dec. 13. America will
brook no delny from Austria in satis-
tying demands made upon the latter in
connection with the torpedoing of the)
Italian liner Ancona with loss of Amer
ican lives. In short, crisp terms the
noto, published broadcast today, de
mands denunciation of the act, punish
ment of the comniandor, reparation for
lives lost. In words, bluntly frank,
Austria is told of America's abhor
rence of such nn act.
How Germany will advise her ally
Austria to answer is tho big question
iu officialdom todny. Tho note points
out thnt Austria is fnmiliar with tho
notes America hns sent Oerinauy. The
kaiser, as Greeting spirit of tho coal
ition, is expected to do tho directing.
Ono probability is that Austria
will feel out America with a partly sat
isfactory replv. Vet the note is a
warning against such a course.
Ta fact diplomnts declared tho docn-
mont employed the sharpest and most
emphntie language America has ever
used to another nation. Austria is
scarcely expected to liko tho note; but
as indiented to the United Press Satur-
ilay by a hiir'a official, tho kaiser will
probably counsel satisfaction in view
of the fact, thnt in his proBont position
ho enn scarcely desire to have the
forces of tho enemy augmented.
After pointing to .its evidenco that
tho Austrian submarine commnnder
pursued n wanton course in shelling;
and sinking tho liner, particularly be-
forn tno pnssenirors Had time to got to
safety, the note expressed tho view
that tho act was a violation of inter
national law and of humanity, and de
manded: 'As tho good relations of tho two
countries must rost on a common re
gard for law nnd humanity, the gov
ernment of the United States cannot
be expected to do otherwiso than do
mnnd that the imporial nnd royul gov
ernment denounce the sinking of the
Ancona as nn illegal nnd Indetonsihle
net; that tho officers who perpetrated
too deed ho punished; nnd that repara
tion by the payment of an indemnity
bo mado for tho citizens of tho United
States who wero killed or injured by
tho attack on the vessel.
"Tho government of tho United
States expects that tho Austro-IIun-garian
government, appreciating the
gravity of the case, will accede to it

pnctution on tno lieliei taut tne Austro
