"Food condition! In Austria vary more
(kin In Germany. Vienna le not so welt
irovldloned na Berlin, but the richer
classes ure not suffering-, the land owners
are living very much their ordinary life,
to the extreme dissatisfaction of their
Kod Qaeatlon Karemoet.
The food question Is the universal
topic of conversation In Austria-Hungary.
In Vienna there nre three ment
ion days n. week. In Budapest there are
two. Meat Is often unobtainable and the
Hue In prices has been Krciiter tliim In
Oermnny and th Miortage of fut worse.
"The population arc cursed with In
numerable taxes and regulations which
annoy and Irritate them. Bitterness
has been caused by the tyrannical con
duct of tho Herman supply association,
which compels tho Aurtrluns and par
ticularly tho Hungarians to supply
quantities of eggs, vegetables, lard and
butter each month."
The writer describes tho Interview
field Marshal von Hlndcnburs ifave re
cently to the Vienna .Veiir h'relc Prose
os the usual propaganda with tho special
purpose of bracing Austria, and then
proceeds to tho subject of losses.
Teaton Losses Tremendous.
"Take, for example, the legal profes
sion, lawyers here are surprised when
I tell them that whole legal Arms In (ler
msny have been wiped out. Take the
universities. I have read recently
figures from Oxford and Cambridge,
whose patriotism has been proved by
those rolls of honor, but the sad lists
do not approach those of tho Hermans.
I no Herman Koclal Democrats and i
great part of the public decline to be
lieve the figures that are given out, say
ing that the real tlgurcs probably are
twlco those admitted. Certainly the
Homme and Verdun losses are greatly
"The Austrian losses urc Issued In
most fragmentary form, but ure known
to bo terrible. They cause the depression
to be found underneath the artificial
gayety of Vienna. Without desiring to
detrnct from tho noblo spirit of your
Russian allies It should be understood
that their prisoners Include many entire
regiments, guns, ammunition and offi
cer, who surrendered.
"Tho Bohemian regiments, for In
stance, are warm sympathizers with the
Allies, and are more anxious to tight
against Oermany than against Russia.
The Hungarian losses are appalling. I
doubt whether any nationality has suf
fered more heavily. To the surprise of
the Germans the Hungarians have shown
themselves Hue fighters."
The Haul for Gold.
Mr. Curtln describes the gold hunt In
Germany and Austria, also the hunt for
rubber, copper and, lastly, for leather,
"At least one-third of Austria's
famous great bells have gone olready to
the Skoda works for munition purposes.
The Germanic powers pretend that they
are not particularly In need of copper,
that they have a store sufficient for
three ears. 1 would like to ask why
they stripped tho copper roof from the
beautiful rathhaus at Bremen.
"The causes of Austrian dissatisfac
tion with Germany arc not understood
In Kngland. They arc not voiced be
cause the Austrian ltelchrath has been
silent since the beginning of the war,
kept closed because the Government and
tne ruling classes, especially the Km
pemr. dare not trust a meeting of the
I thirteen races of that iwlyglot empire.
"Tho Austrlnns, who placed reliance
In Prussian leadership, feel that they
have been used as a catspaw. A Hun
garian Deputy told me that the Austrlans
would gladly give Italy the Troitlno If
they could hold Trieste. Austria It 111 a
mood to give up anything. That Is a
part of the reason for the Hlndcrlburg
"Prussia holds the Austllans In ex
treme contempt. German officers fre
quently fall to return the salutes of Aus
trlan officers. I can hardly say anything
stronger than that. Germany affects to
tegard Austria as a millstone around
her neck, when in reality Austria has
l.cen the buffer state and has received
most of the blows. Austria is utterly
weary of the war."
