CHAPTER XXX - FLIGHT

" You mean that Mr. Gerald Dalton was engaged to the Commander's daughter ? " gasped Royston.
" Something of the sort," said Brewer.
" Then that explains a lot," said Royston finally.
" I wish we could find out what the Comte is aiming at," said Brewer, who was completely in Royston's confidence now. " You saw the morning paper, of course, sir ? "
" Do you mean the references to the murders at Serajevo ? Yes! " answered Royston, with a renewal of painful recollections.
" The later news says that Austria has issued an ultimatum to Serbia," went on Brewer.
Royston stared at him in alarm.
" Then the news we got was right, after all," he said, as though he were speaking to himself.
" Didn't you believe it, sir ? " asked Brewer, surprised.
" Well, it's like this," said Royston. " I have spent a lot of time in Germany lately on this very matter, and though I believe they are spoiling for war I don't think they are ready yet."
" But look, sir," said Brewer, " look how Germany has increased her army, look at all her air machines and poison gas. Why, she's simply spoiling for war."
" No ! I can't believe it," said Royston. It was not his policy to be too credulous before his assistant. He knew what the truth was. " But in any case, poison gas is prohibited in warfare by the Hague Convention. They would not dare to use it," he added.
" You wait, sir," said Brewer, who had not so much faith in a country's word if it came to a fight. " The sinking of unarmed vessels is also forbidden-but just you see when war comes, we'll be absolutely at the mercy of their submarines."
" What rot you are talking," said Royston firmly.
