It could only have repl ed that we had bartered away to the power threatening her. our obligations to keep our plighted word.

Aug. B.-tieneral Im provement In the conditions among Americans abroad was shown today In' official dispatches to the State depart' ment. Urgent appeals for transportation, however, continued. Ambassador Herrick reported the ' fi nancial panic had been sj far alleviated in Taiia that he r i inmtndcd that the I sold on board the cruiser Tennessee be diverted to other cities in grca'er need. K. H. Gary, chairman of the relief com. mlttee in Paris, stated that at least M.OOJ Americans were In need of transportation and that with present accomodations it would take alx months to move them. Ftom Vienna Ambassador Penfield tele-' graphed under date of August 3 that he was making 'every . effort to get Ameri cans out of Austria before yesterday at midnight, when all transportation was to be stopped for a period of some weeks. Tha plan was to transport the foreigners from Vienna to Trieste and thence to Venice, where they can embark on Italian vessels. So- far there has been no danger to Americans, but great Inconvenience.

Similar conditions ex.st at Milan, ac cording to Consul Stewart. Consul Baahr reported Switzerland also filled with Americans unable to secure credit. From Bergen, Norway, a dispatch signed by the Arctic Explorer Rassmus aon, reported a party of Americana on a polar axpedition on board the Prins Fried rich Wllhelm on their way to Bremen had dlstrobarked and asked for assist ance. W. Q. Sharp, the newly appointed am bassador to France, will proceed as soon as he can secure passage. Ship Owners Arc tireeay. Secretary Garrison expressed his chagrin at tha disposition of American steamship companies to charge whet he considers exorbitant prices for vessels to transport Americans. Mr. Garrison said preliminary Inquiries brought Information that ves sels could be obtained for about )duO a day. The price a'.ddenly has been doubled. 'T do not intend It have any one gat suddenly rich out of this business," said Secretary flarrtion. "The steamship companies will find they cannot use this occasion tj siphon money out of the United States treasury." For that reason Mr. Garrison said It will be Ms purpose first, to employ soma of the twelve army transports at Galves ton already being refitted for transatlan llo service. He has made Inquiry If he haa authority to commandeer commercial vessels for the emcigency, and it hope ful that the government can aelxe ships and afterward arrange for a fair com pensation for their use. Inquiries for Pacific vessels have de veloped that nothing is available there more adaptable than on the Atlantio side.

' The problem of getting in the harvest has given much cause for thought to the French ministry of 8grK ture, which Is considering a scheme for replacing the men who have Joined the army, by train ing all children from 10 to Id years of age In field work under the guidance of the old.ptoplo. Ambassador Myron T. Herrick, in order In s event stranded Americana from be- I ing exploited by speculators, today went lo u hotel where, one was doing business and posted a notice saying that the American embassy had nothing to do with the enterprise which was charging (60 for transportation by river steamer from 1' arts' to Rouen and S100 for the voyage to an English port ALL EYES TURNED TO THE NORTH SEA (Continued from Page One.) WEEK YET TO MASS MEN FOR BIG FIGHT (Continued from Page One.) tha Oerman staff long ago decided that tha invaalon of France through Its strongly fortified eastern frontier was too difficult to be relied upon. It Is "plain that Germany thought It preferable to violate Belgian neutrality and drive England into the field against her than to rely on getting Into Franca through the latter'a curtain of powerful fortifications. There is little doubt that the Germans will succeed in forcing their way through Belgium, Trneae la Csixscrji, The Times' Copenhagen dispatch says: "Yesterday 15,000 troopa were ordered to man fortifications of Copenhagen. Tha feeling here la pessimistic, but it Is still hoped that Denmark's neutrality would not be Infringed upon.' The Times' Stockholm dispatch says: "Partial mobilization of the defense of tha neutrality of Swoden was ordered yesterday and la proceeding normally. Tha public -is keenly alive to the gravity of the situation and even the socialists favor tha mobilisation movement." The Times' Berne despatch says: "Tha national council assembled today In ex traordinary session. The president an nounced that Switserland has lecelved assurances from the French and Ger man governments that they would respect her neutrality. While they accepted with gratification auch assurances, the Swiss government wss taking all necessary pre cautionary movements for the defense of the fatherland, and was confident tha army- would be ready for all emergencies.''

The troops of tha two races sang choruses together on their way out of Brussels to tha front this morning. There is talk of the seat of government being transferred from Brus sels to Antwerp. It Is undoubtedly be ing considered as an eventuality. "The general Impression Is that the heavy f'.ghtlng will bo around Liege, where the Belgian troopa will have to retard tha German march until tha French arrive." one, some reports giving the number of casualties as high as 8,000. German Crolsera Are Safe From Rome came a report that the German cruisers Goeben and Brealau had escaped the pursuit of French and British warships after bombarding the Algerian coast and had safely reached a Sicilian port. . German war vessels are said to have penetrated the Gulf of Finland and bom barded Sveaborg, the "northern Gibral tar."

Laughlln, the American secre tary of embassy, devoted himself to this business. Manr Germans In Great Britain. It was estimated by the embassy that there were . 100,000 Germans In Great Britain, but there were no means of as certaining how many of these had left since the beginning of serloua trouble be tween tho nations. Many Germans resldo in England In order to escape military service, "but a great number of these are said to have applied to be permitted to serve In the German army as soon aa Emperor William offered pardon for de serters. So far the British government had not Issued any order for the expulsion of Germans and none la expected, so that those now here are HVely to remain. British families, however, are discharg ing all German '. servants, governnesses and chauffeurs, so that the German ben evolent societies have their hands full In supplying the needs at tha destitute. . Asaexteana Ask for Food. Many Americana today asked for help to obtain food and lodging. There were many Instances of persons with gold certificates In their pockets walking the streets all night hungry. Some of these were relieved by small unsecured loans from H. C. Hoover of California, who spent moat of the day working to obtain a reasonable rate of exchange for Amer ican bills. The rate Is now exorbitant. Among the callers at the American con sulate general was Mrs, James T. Macey of Denver, who was ordered out of hoi sick bed In a hospital at Antwerp Mon day with only . two hours' notice. She was told the hospital was needed for the wounded. Mrs. Macey left her mother and child In Germany. ' The street In front of the American I consulate general today was packed with j Germans, mostly youths of the servant Class coming rrom ail parts oi tne Hritian Isles to register their names, so that they might return to Germany to fight If pos sible. The Germuns were very peace able and the police on duty were aole easily to keep them In line. The clerks within the consulate general meanwhile registered their names and address and stamped their military books to protect them against being classed as deserters in case they were unable to re turn to Germany. There waa no show of feeling against the English in the crowd of men return ing to their fatherland as a patrlotlo "uty. Their usual answer to the ques tion rs to why they were going Was: "We must" Several hundred German seamen ex pelled .from France have arrived here and are boarded In the various sailors' ho:e. Thus far no cases of Insult to or 111 treatment of Germans by the English have been recorded. Germans Want Hellish Cltlsrnahlp. There was a rush of Germans of all classes to the home office today to securo British naturalization papers. About une-hulf of the sixty American delegates to tho church peace conference, which was to have been held at Con stance, have reached London. Tha other half were left behind. Those who came through were taken under the apeclul protection of Emperor William and given a safe conduct to the frontier of Holland. Consul General Skinner is overwhelmed w'ili personal letters and dispatches In quiring foi Americana whose whereabouts aro unknown. He says It Is Impossible) for him to trv to locate people or answer letters or telegrams. Extra clerks have been employed at tho consulate general. but even with this help all the demands cannot be met. Mr. Skinner added: "It Is simply a matter of organization and I hope all Americana will aoon be entered on a card Index and looked after." Omaha real estate Is the h"t Investment you could make.
