Appeal to the Clrlllied IVorW." tehteh irns
(ytircl by ninety-three German tvhnUtr.
To the Editor or The Siw Sir: The
head of tho Carnecle institute in Pltta
bure had a letter printed In your paer
on Sunday lnt, November 21, assertinR
that bad fcllnR and Ju-itltled resentment
have ben created by Austria In annex
ing Ilosnla and HerzeRovlna In 100:.
Since your correspondent docs not seem
to have a very clear conception of the
case, l beg to point out to your readers
that Hosnla and Herzegovina were two
Turkish provinces of a very mixed popu
lation. Christians and Mohammedans, and
were, occupied by Austria during the
Huso-Turklsh war In 177 This
seemed to be then Ihe only wa In wlibh
thse peoplt could b kept from iletro
Iiir each other on rellclous lines and to
advatn-o their clv.llzatinn and worldly
The Iterlln CoiiRress, In which all the
nations of Hurope took part, ratitled this
occupation In perpetuity and Austria
helped, occupjMnR and dve',oplns th"e
two Turkish provinces, together with the
Sanjak nf Novlbazar. for thlrlv-one
jears until 1909, with the full consent
of r.urope and under the t-rms of the
Iterlln protocol There was no provision
under which these province? rhould V1
returned to Turkey.
In I ! 0 f. . however, the Turks made a
revolution In Constantinople and adopted
a conMtutlonal replme, providing for Par-llam-ir
to elert nieinhers frnin all Turkish
piovlnces. The c. ntllct between Austrian
administration on the one hand and the
working of the Constantinople Parliament
on the o:her, which would have Included
oiiuresmen from llosnia and Herze
govina, and wb6.-e law would have applied
als i to these two Turkish provinces,
llosnia and Herzegovina, made the change
Imp' rative. so Austria annexed these
two provinces from Turkey, returning to
Turkej the Sanjak of Novib.izar and
paving a huge indemnity to ttie Turks.
All thl.s happened with the full consent
of r.urope and on the basis of a treaty
bitwen Austria and Turkey. Sanjak
of Novlbazar had then been wrested from
Tuikiy in the llalkau war of If 12 by Ihe
Servians, but th Servians have never
had any interest in this matter, neither
i'n the basis of an International treaty
nor from the point of view of religion.
The Servians claimed that In these for
merly Turkish, now Austrian, provinces
Servians are living, who must be re
deemed, Just as they claimed regarding:
Austria-Hungary, but that dos not give
It Is a pity that people like your cor
respondent should write about things
which they have not oeen careful enough
to study sufllclently and that they should
put a slander on great lluropean nations
on such Insufficient knowledge.
I wonder what the Pittsburg profesmr
would say If the other nations would do by
hlni as he is doing by other Vours very
