LONDON, July 26. Tho darkest
war cloud which has appeared on
the European horizon since Germany
sent warships to Agadlr, In 1911, has
arisen within forty-eight hours.
Tho Servian government has re
fused to comply with Austria's de
mands, the most humiliating over
asked of an Independent nation, for
tho expiation of the Sarayovo mur
ders for which Austria holds antl
Austlan conspiracies In Servla re
sponsible and for guarantees of fu
ture good behavior.
At 5:30 last night when the Austro-Hun-garian
ultimatum expired, the Servian
premier handed to the Austrian minister
at Belgrade, Servla'a reply. Tho min
ister immediately severed diplomatic re
lations and started tor home.
All 4r Nothing.
The contents of the note have not been
revealed, but tho Servian legation In

others. Apparently Austria was resolved
to have the whole bill .paid or nothing,

tempt to defend Belgrade, the garrison
having already been withdrawn, accord

to Kraguycvatz, a strong strategic point
sixty miles to the south.
Servla's refusel to humiliate Itself to
the extent Its neighbor has directed was
not unexpected. But Serbs iiave been
proud -since their success In the late
Balkan war and the government which

negro, seems determined to cast Its lot
with Its cousin in war.
Servian partisans abroad advanco the
theory that Austria has made up Its
mind to dispose of its neighbor, which
has long been a thorn In Its side, and
has chosen to strike a decisive blow at
a moment when the nations of tho triple

HARMONY ON THE SURFACE

(From a Staff Correspondent.
DE8 MOINES. la., July K.-(SpcclaU
Tho republicans of the state, or thoso
that keep close tab on political currents,
are chuckling over tho situation at the
democratic state convention, and see In
It evidence that while the democrats
appear to be In perfect harmony thcro
Is a great deal of discord beneath the
surface. The fight between Meredith and
Connelly for tho senatorial nomination
left some scars that cannot be healed
by fine talk, so It Is said. It was a fight
for control of tho party machinery, a
fight for a principle, and not merely
ono between two good democrats. Mere
dith was wholly unknown to tho demo
crats of tho state, but ho typified cor
taln things which were the exact oppo
site of his successful opponent. Now
the Meredith people arc nominally loyal
and aro going to get back of Connelly (
to the full oxtcnt; but tho rank and flloi"av, l,cen ono 01 lno n most re-
of thoso who supported Meredith will! maskable exhibitions of gymnastics and
not bo enthusiastic for tho old regime
In their party. What Is really happening
Is a play for the futuro. Next time the
Meredith people expect to como Into full
possession of the party. They' will con
trol It in tho presidential year, and as
there will bo no democratic Btate offi
cials they will nomlnato tho ticket which
they hope will win at that time. This Is
the program for tho future. Thoro Is
said to bo no real expectancy on the
part of tho democrats of electing their
ticket this year In Iowa, but they will
build for tho future.
In the meantlmo the republicans, while
having some troubles of their own, grow-

Judicial Fight AVnrmlnic Up.
Since tho primary election there haH ',
boen very little discussion of candidates
for Judicial position, but now there Is '
some Interest being taken In tho matter.
with tho result that the lines are being
gradually shaped up for the final fight
as to the supreme court. It haabecomo
evident that there Is a determined fight
being made on the present court with a
view to discrediting t and effecting a
gonoral chango In- the attitude of tho
court toward political questions.
One of the features now coming to tho
front is tho effort being made to put on
the supreme bench a wholly unknown
man of no experience, and to put him
thero because he Is a democrat. The
one democrat on tho list of candidates is
Scth Thomas of Fort Dodge. It is found
that as a matter of fact he graduated
from tho law school In 1910 after a year
at the school, previously studying In tho
Ilealy law office in .Fort Dodge -iajias, J
therefore, had barely four -years' 'experi
ence In the. practice of law and nono as
a Judgo. This fact has surprised a great
many and aroused them to an Inquiry )
as to what it is that Is being done with
regard to the supreme bench.
Tho other new aspirants aro Congress
man S. F. Prouty and B. I. Salinger.
The former has a record as an able law
yer and district Judge, and his elevation ,
to the sunreme bench would cause no
surprise. But Salinger has held only tho .
offlco of supreme court reporter, and
while he Is recognized as an able lawyer.
he has had for clients some elements that
would be greatly delighted to have him In
the high place. The Indications are,
therefore, that the fight for the supremo
bench will soon begin to warm up.
Taxation Quetlon In New lhnr.
There will bo Borne new phases of tho
assessment and taxation question in Iowa
as a result of tho assessment work for
this year In Iowa. In tho first placo It noon- making films ot the best features,
has been already demonstrated that a I Iror to the beginning of tho program
very large part of the Increase of taxa-1 Proper, tho star athletes and gymnast
tlon last year was duo to tho action of I save special exhibitions, to accommodate
the local authorities rather than to any- the camera men and entertain the ad

and the town councils is many-fold what
state authorities. This tact can now be I
demonstrated to the dollar by the returns!
from the counties. But It Is also!
demonstrated that the extreme measures
of the state officials In ordering changes
In tho valuation are necessary If there
Is to be real equalization of the tax bur
dens. Thero will be no material change
In the valuation on property In the state
this year. The assessors made a slight
Increase In values by adding the new
buildings and new personal property also
by keeping up value of Uvo stock. This
will be the only change from last year.
as the valuation on railroad and other
property has not been changed. Tho dis
cussion of tho taxation problem will there
fore not again be .on the question ot
whether or not the state had the right
to effect equalization, but how to main
tain values where they are and how to
adjust the tax lovles to fit tho situation
In each case.
Where Stnte ltu Ileen GrnspliiK.
The place where the state harfvbeen
over-reaching Itself is in collecting ex
orbitant tees from tho Standard Oil com
pany. But this will be stopped now,
thanks to the western association of In
dependent Jobbers in oil. This association
has compelled the state to give up half
its fees on inspection of oil. Tho action
of the Independents, however, was not
due to tender consideration of the profits
of their powerful rival, which will be the
chief beneficiary. But tho independents
were feeling the burden of the oil in
spection fee on gasoline, and finding that
it would not stand a court analysis, they
have forced the state to aoandon It en
tirely. This means a loss In revenue to
the state ot about 360,000 a year.
Will Not Take the Serum.
It Is announced that the members of
the mllttla companies of Iowa will not
be vaccinated against typhoid before go
ing Into camp at Camp Dodge August
10. At least most of the men will not be
so treated with the serum because it has
arrived In the state too late. There was
an order to have all the men vaccinated
before going Into camp this year, and a
purchase was made of sufficient serum to
effect the result desired. But there was
great delay In getting the serum, and as
a conaequenco there will be no vaccination
of that kind.

CHICAGO, July 28. A novel appeal to
tho women of the nation to give up their
gold and stiver Jewels to tho cause of
; equal suffrage was Issued today by the
campaign committee of the National
American Woman Suffrage association.
The appeal, signed by Dr. Anna Howard
Shaw, Mrs. Mcdill McCormlck and other
leaders In the suffrage cause, was sent
out from headquarters here telling of the
need of funds to carry on effective cam
paigns for suffrage in seven states
Ohio, Missouri, Nobrasua, Nevada, Mon
tana and tho Dakotas.
"Don't bo lulled Into a false sense of
security by the prevailing notion that
"suffrage Is sure to come," read the ap
peal. "Suffrage Is sure to come, but it
cannot come this year unless the women
of the country show by their response
that they are determined to have It
"A little of what you treasure, an orna
ment of beauty, a tribute of friendship,
something prized because of Its place In
household life put It In the melting pot
Send It to the suffrage campaign commit
tee." The committee plans to have the gold
and silver contributions converted Into
money and hopes that In this way at least
J50.000 can bo raised before August 15 for
the suffrage campaign In the seven states.
It Is planned to spend 115,000 on the cam
paign In Ohio, 310.000 In Missouri and 35,000

The Servian minister here today received

gent, had orderod a general mobilization
of tho Servian army, and summoned the
Skupshtlna to meet tomorrow In the old
fortified capital city of Nish, 1M miles
southeast of Belgrade.
Sorvla's reply to the Austrian ultimatum
Is summarized as follows;
1. Servla grecs to the publication in Its
official Journal on the front page of tho
trlan government condemning the sub-
verslvo propagndn and deploring Its fatal
uul... urcmruun uumuiea oy mo aub-
consequences, regretting the participation
of Servian officers In this propaganda,
repudiating any further .Interference with
Austro-llungarlan Interests and warning
all Servians that rigorous procedelngs will

2. Servla agrees to communicate this
declaration to the army In tho form of an
order of tho day.
3. It promises to dissolve those societies
which may be considered capable ot con
ducting Intrigues aglnst Austria.
4. Revision of the laws governing the
5. Dismissal from the army nnd navy
of officers and tho removal also of civil
ian officials, whose participation In an
nntt-Austrlan propaganda may be proved.
Tho Servian government, however, pro
tests against Austrian officials taking
part In the Inquiry.
6. The Servian government ask for an
explanation as to Just what part the Aus
trian officials arc to be called upon to
take In the Inquiry Into the Saruyevo
plot and It is announced that Servla can
only admit such partlclptatlon as would
be In accordance with International law
and good neighborly relations.
7. To sum up, Servla accepts all the
conditions and demands of Austria and t
makes reservations only regarding the
participation of Austrian officials In the
Inquiry. It does not give Its formal re
fusal to this point, but confines Itself
to asking explanations.
Flnaly. If the Austrian government
finds this reply In adequate, Servla ap
peals to The Haue tribunal and to the
powers, which signed the declaration of
1903 .relative to Bosnia, and Herzegovina.
