  • LONDON, July 28 — Announcement of the declaration of war by Austria-Hungary on Servia came today almost immediately after Germany and Austria had notified Sir Edward Grey, the British foreign minister, of their refusal to join in a mediation conference.
    It is assumed here that the efforts of the European nations will now be directed toward localizing the hostilities.
    The actual cause of Austria-Hungary's decision to enter into hostile conflict with Servia was the reply sent by the Balkan state to the note from Vienna demanding that Servia take steps to put a stop to the Pan-Servian propaganda on Austrian territory and punish those Servians indirectly concerned in the assassination in Bosnia on June 22 of Arch Duke Franciz Ferdinand, heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne.

    The whereabouts of J.P. Danielson, who hired a horse and buggy from the Nash livery last Sunday, are desired. He hired the rig to go to Hillcrest, and never reached there according to investigations made by Owner Goodman. Sunday afternoon a telephone message was received that Danielson's wife was sick, and he would not return on time. Monday another message told of the death of his wife, and assured the owner that the horse would be returned soon. No one by that name has died, and no one in the Hillcrest neighborhood knows Danielson, or who the accomplice that telephoned was.
    The horse is described as a dark bay, weight 1,000 pounds, and the buggy black with steel tires and white trimmings.
