THE MAILED FIST.
GERMANY'S THREAT TO INVADE
INTENSE FEELING IN RUSSIA. EXULTATION IN BE2LIM. (By Cable.—Press Association.—Copyright.) (Received 8.33 a.m.) LONDON. March 31. Intense bitterness exists throughout Russia against Germany's ultimatum, which, the "Times'" St. Petersburg correspondent reports, amounted to a threat of Austro-German invasion. M. Homiakoff, President of the Douma, declared that Britain would forget this blow even less easily than she would forget the Berlin Treaty. Except the "Berliner Tageblatt," all the German newspapers rejoice in the success of the "mailed fist" in the Balkans, and discourage any understanding with Britain in regard to naval policy. There are persistent rumours in St. Petersburg that M. Is vol sky, Minister for Foreign Affairs, who reported to the Cabinet the probable mobilisation on the Russian frontier within 48 hours, and led the Ministry to vote to bring pressure upon Servia to accede to Austria's terms, is resigning.
SERVIA ACCEPTS THE SITUATION.
NO FURTHER PROTESTS. BELGRADE, March 31. Servia has unreservedly accepted the draft formula suggested for the solution of the differences between herself and Austria, and delivers a Note to Vienna today, promising to no longer protest against the annexation by Austria of Bosnia anc 1 Herzegovina, to discharge her reservists, and not to permit the formation of irregular bands.
