North Russia would not affect the attitude assumed by Austro
Hungary, as announced on Friday in Vienna by Count Cxernln. :

lddresa by the burgomaster of Vienna, stated that the imperial
government would wait a while longer in the hope that an honor

of the Bolsheviki leaders to enter into a peace treaty. - '-.

Bulgaria will also refuse to resume her warfare against Russia, with
