Transcript 56 avait declare encore auparavant qu'il lui serait impossible de rester indifferente, sans se refuser toutefois a employer tous ses efforts pour trouver une issue pacifique qui fut acceptable pour FAutriche et menageat son amour-propre de Grande Puissance. En meme temps la Russie etablit fermement qu'elle admettait une solution pacifique de la question seulement dans une mesure qui n'impliquerait pas la diminution de la dignite de la Serbie comme Etat inde- pendant. Malheureusement tous les efforts deployes par le Gouvernement Imperial dans cette direction resterent sans effet. Le Gouvernement austro- hongrois, apres s'etre derobe a toute intervention conciliatrice des Puissances dans son conflit avec la Serbie, proceda a la mobilisation, declara officielle- ment la guerre a la Serbie, et le jour suivant Belgrade fut bom- bardee. Le manifeste qui a accompagne la declaration de guerre accuse ouvertement la Serbie d'avoir prepare et execute le crime de Seraiewo. Une pareille accusation d'un crime de droit commun lancee contre tout un peuple et tout un Etat attira a la Serbie par son inanite evidente les larges sympathies des cercles de la societe europeenne. A la suite de cette maniere d'agir du Gouvernement austro- hongrois, malgre la declaration de la Russie qu'elle ne pourrait rester indifferente au sort de la Serbie, le Gouvernement Imperial jugea necessaire d'or- donner la mobilisation des cir- conscriptions militaires de Kiew, d'Odessa, de Moscou et de Kazan. Une telle decision s'imposait parce que depuis la date de la remise de la note austro-hon- viouslv declared that she could not remain indifferent, while not desisting from doing her utmost to find a peaceful issue which might prove acceptable to Austria, and spare the latter's self- respect as a Great Power. At the same time Russia let it be clearly understood that she could accept a peaceful settlement of the question only so far as it involved no humiliation of Servia as an independent State. Unhappily all the efforts of the Russian Government to this end wore fruitless. The Austro-Hungarian Government, which had shunned any attempt at conciliatory intervention by the Powers in the Austrian dispute with Servia, proceeded to mobilise and declared war officially against Servia, and the following day Belgrade was bombarded. The manifesto which accompanied the declaration of war openly accuses Servia of having prepared and carried out the crime of Sera- jevo. Such an accusation of a crime at common law, launched against a wrhole people and a whole State, aroused, by its evident inanity, widespread sympathy for Servia throughout all classes of European society. In consequence of this behaviour of the Austro-Hungarian Government, in spite of Russia's declaration that she could not remain indifferent to the fate of Servia, the Russian Government considered it necessary to order mobilisation in the military districts of Kieff, Odessa, Moscow, and Kazan. This decision was rendered necessary by the fact that since the date when the Austro - Hungarian note was
