Two yar mo I wm constantly In formed In London tiiat the collapse of Aaitrla waa Imminent," he writes. "Aus tria Is suffering and 1 eeverely sick of tie Trr, but I have aeen no real elirn of tte much wlehed for eventuality. "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 poorer brethren. 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 underestimated. "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, and continues: "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 Interview. "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." 100 VOLUNTEER FOR FRANCE. I. eland Ntsmrnrd tindrrsiradaatei Offer Services to Ambulance Corps San FrtANCisco, Nov. 4.
