the command of the Czar today are
three great armies numbering 1,384, 1,384,-000

footing. Her war footing would
bring her armies to the astounding
figure of 5,400,000. Germany would
not be far behind, this however, her
war footing being about 4,550,000
and her peace footing about 791,000.
As far as can be seen now by Eu European
ropean European diplomats, the quarrel lies be between
tween between Austria, Germany, Servia and
Russia. The 'latter great -Slav em empire
pire empire is in honor bound to stand by
her weaker Slav brethren, Servia
and Montenegro, and Montenegro has
let herself into the Austro-Servian
! difficulties by coming to the aid of
Servia. With Russia standing by
Servia and Montenegro, Germany
i 'will come to the aid of Austria, with
j which country she rnot only is bound
I up by similar ideals and similar
laims, but by strong blood ties and
'by the Triple Alliance, which Ger Germany,
many, Germany, Austria and Italy formed.
Italy is the weak link in the chain
of the Triple Alliance. Her navy is
:,not feared by the big European pow pow-!
! pow-! ers and the value of her army is
(problematical. The Triple Entente,
Russia, France and England appears
to be very much the stronger,- in tha
opinion of diplomats and military
experts. England has not muoh of
an army uut her fleets are extreme extremely
ly extremely powerful and together with the
fleets of France would be relied
upon to do much harm to German
'merchant marine and the coasts of
the enemy. :J
But the war may not stop with
Russia, Austria, Germany, Great
Britain, France and Servia. France,
having been drawn into the struggle
partly because of her hatred for
Germany over the Franco-Prussian
war and the seizure of Alsace and
LKraine, and partly because she is a
member of the Triple Entente, may
:take Belgium in with her. Belgium
has no love for Austria and Germany
and she is quite closely allied to
France in many ways. Spain proba
bly will remain neutral. Greece al already
ready already has signified her readiness to
aid Servia and Montenegro. Turkey
.has indicated a desire to remain
neutral, but it is doubtful if it will
be possible for her to do so. She
probably will have to ally herself
with the Triple Alliance for her own
protection against Greece and the
Balkan nations, which would not
miss the opportunity to attack their
Bulgaria, having been aided by
Austria in the recent Balkan wars,
will merge her armies with those of
Austria and the Triple Alliance.
This would bring Roumania into the
conflict, as Roumania has several
little difficulties resulting from the
Balkan wars which she would like
to settle with Bulgaria. While all
of these little nations would be of
some aid to the great European al alliances,
liances, alliances, they scarcely can be figured
upon as serious considerations. And
while their armies are composed al almost
most almost wholely of veterans of the
Turkish and Balkan wars, it also
must be realized that they havt
suffered greatly from these wars and
have not had opportunity to even
partially recover before being plung plunged
ed plunged into another great conflict.
The situation then shapes up with
Great Britain, France and Russia
against Austria, Germany and Italy.
Following is the latest information
available of the fleets and armies of
the six great powers:
Austria Army on war footing,
820,000; navy, 2 dreadnaughts, 14
smaller battleships, S cruisers, 63
torpedo boats and 8 submarines.
Germany Army on war footing,
4,350,000; navy, 17 dreadnaughts,
Armies, 8,605,150 men; navies, C12
ships. However, it Is very doubtful
that Italy goes into this war. Aus Austria
tria Austria and Germany can, however,
count on the help of Bulgaria and
Turkey, which nations would count
for more on land than Italy.
The forces of the triple entente
will line up as follows:
Russia Army on war footing,
5,400,000; navy, 13 battleships, 14
cruisers, 95 destroyers, 42 torpedo
boats, 31 submarines.
France Army on war footing,
2,500,000; navy, 2 dreadnaughts, 27
'battleships, 37 cruisers, 84 destroy

Great Britain Army on war foot footing,

dreadnaughts, 16 dreadnaughts, 48
battleships, 106 cruisers, 215 de
stroyers, 118 torpedo boats, 77 sub
marines. The naval force of Great
Britain alone is greater than that of
the entire triple alliance.
The triple entente therefore has
on land 8,972,615 men and on sea
1340 vessels. This does not include
the 300,000 men Servia and Monte
negro already have in the field, or
the Greek army and navy, pledged to
the support of Servia. In case Japan
takes a hand, as the ally of Great
Britain, the defeat -of the triple al alliance
liance alliance is a foregone conclusion, as
hundreds of thousands of Japanese
could be sent across Siberia and
Russia to be unloaded on the Ger
Lman frontier. It Is also almost cer
tain that Belgium -would side with
France and Denmark with Russia,
and very likely that Roumania
would attack Austria.
