CHAPTER XXXII - A HORRIBLE PLAN

out-and he would never get the chance to strike his blow !
He had slaved and plotted and schemed-yes-and murdered-for this very opportunity ! And now this fool of an emperor was thinking of giving up the very thing which would force the issue !
" At midnight to-night," he went on, coldly determined, " you will be at war against France and Russia and Serbia. Whatever you do, you cannot stop England coming in." (He did not say he had seen a secret dispatch from the Foreign Secretary to the Prime Minister saying that England would hold off war until the last hope had gone !) " And what about my plan ? Have you forgotten that ? If you move into Belgium -take the initiative-give me the excuse to strike my blow-there will be no England to fight! She will be crippled before she ever begins !
" And you will find yourself in London the day after you leave Paris ! Think of it-in London! "
There was a pause as he let this sink into the brain of the egotist at the other end-as the poison worked on a mind already inflated with a mad passion for Power.
" You will get word of my success at eleven-fortyfive to-night," he went on. " No one will know that you have anything to do with it-go ahead through Belgium. England will have to declare war and you can vindicate yourself in the eyes of the world by saying you knew of England's treachery beforehand, and that she always intended to attack first-you had to circumvent her by going through Belgium and forestall her secret preparations ! By the time the truth leaks out over here, you will be master of the situation.
· . . What ? . . . Of course I shall succeed ! "
This was evidently the last straw, for a smile of satisfaction spread all over the cruel face, and the eyes which had been burning with a fierce unnatural light now sank down into a quiet smoulder.
