v. HKHLI.V. March 22. The German -For-lgn
office learned today that armed
' operation against Montenegro by the
Austrian navy may be expected soon. An
Austrian ;quadron Is now maneuvering
off the Montenegrin and Albanian coast.
The officials of the German Foreign of
fico siite that Austria will send ono fur
ther note to Montenegro, so as to ex
haust the possibilities of diplomacy, be
fore the character of the activity of the
warshios changes from ,a demonstration
into offcnslvo action,

Austria Sends Ultimatum.
VIENNA, March 22. The Austro-Hun-garlan
government today addressed a
strongly worded note to Montenegro,
which was In the nature of an ultima
tum. Beyond promising that the future bom
bardment of Scutari will be directed
against the fortifications and not against fixes am annual occupation tax upon cor
the town, Montenegro's reply to Austria's I poratlons and places tho sending -out of
remonstrances, is a refusal to comply
with the Austrian demands.
The note declares that for military
reasons Montenegro must refuse to per
mit civilians to leave ScutarJ and that
it cannot allow the Austro-Hungarlan
consul in Scutari to take part In the
Inquiry into tho death of the Priest Palle
or the alleged coercive conversion of
Catholics, declaring that such an Inves
tigation by u, foreign official would be
Inbpmpatlblo with the sovereign rights
ot the king of lontenegro.
Finally, the reply contains some evaslvo
remarks concerning the alleged molesta
tion of the Austrian steamer, Skodra, at
T?an Giovanni Dl Medua. Austria de-mnnded-tlio
punishment of the military
afldjfjyll authorities responsible for or
dering Captain Dlaslch to assist In land-
Ing Sen-Ian troops and war munitions. I

PARIS. March 22.-Austria-Hungarya
Isolated action against Montenegro Is
lnnkpn iinon with considerable nnxletV
here. It Is believed that a naval demon
stration off the Montenegrin coast will
In the present temper of the Montene
grins result ln an armed collision. Should
such a clash occur, Russia, it Is believed,
certainly would Intervene.
Louis Brunet, the Montenegrin1 consul
general at Paris, commenting upon Aus
tria's note to Montenegro, today said;
"It Is clear that Austria seeks a fresh
quarrel with Montenegro and it recatu
the incident at Prlsrend, in whlo'n the
Austrian consul. Prochaska, was the
principal. On this occasion Austria se
lects the moment when the fortress of
Scutari Is about to fall to act.
"The pretext it uses Is trivial. The
Austrian government knows that to al
low the civil population of Scutari to
leave the citadel would be to paralyze
the Servian and Montenegrin military
operations, for the reason that tho
greater part of the civilian Inhabitants
have been armed and are. defending tho
rower necnl! Ainhasandors.
LONDON, March 22. The new crlsla In
the Balkans led today to the instant re
call from their Easter vacations of ths

powers. They radt In conference this aft

WASHINGTON, March 22. When
Elliott Woods, superintendent of the

and noted the transformation that hud

he did not attempt'to disguise his satis
faction. "Bring on the tariff session," he ex
claimed, "everything's ready."
The house wears a strange aspect, for
the old desks and revolving chairs have
disappeared and In their place prim
rows of benches have been substituted.
The new benches will provide seats
for 450 personB. or fifteen more than the
present membership of the house. These
extra seats will be occupied, however,

cabinet members to appear on the floor

Bryan, secretary ' .of state, before ths
largest crowd that has ever gathered at
the Commercial club. It was one ot manyi
remarks In his speech, vrhlch were re-4
cnlvnd by the audience with much laugh-
ter and applause. In fact, his speech con
talned lines of humor and good will all
the way through.
Joseph Millard, former United states
senator from .Nebraska, acted 'as chair-
man and ln tlntroduclng the speaker,
complimented the president, on hs cholc
ot Mr, Bryan to head the cabinet. Other
sentences In his Introductory remarks at
forded thoughts i -which the secretary
ot stato humorously elaborated. Mr,
Bryan said tho club had done him honor1
by making Senator Millard the toast
master "Senator Millard, who has not
always. votedthe same and who Is one
of those In tho opposite party broad
enough, liberal enough and generous
enough to let his Interest run across party
lines occasionally.'"
Close to llelnic Prealdent.
"As the toastmattcr has tuggected," h(
continued, "tho president probably se
lected me because of all th. people in th9
country I had cuuc most irequently oloso
to becoming president."
In explaining some ot the duties ot thf
secretary of state the chairman had said
tho president made no mistake In ap
pointing Mr. Bryan because Mr. Bryan
knows tho troubles or public life and
"will know, better In a year from upW,
especially nftfcr handling the many gen
tlemcn who want to be sent abroad.1,
"I don't suppose," declared Mr. Bryan,
rather as a rtnly to tils,. ''that there s
any man In the country who knows mora
people 'who ought to be sent to foreign
lands, ilt Is mjvregret that 12,506 mileu
away Is the greatest distance they can
be sent. This globe Js too, small for send
Ing some of the people to distances i
would like to send them. But If ihe preu,
Idont will give me a free hand I'll send
as many republicans abroad as 1 can
before the next election."
Mr. Bryan dealt at somo length on tha
policies of the present administration la
relations with foreign countries, and la
words evidently calculated to mako his
audlenco believe the administration will
adppt more a .policy of friendship ana
exnraple for other nations than endeav
