The altitude of the Russian foreign office as learned through nn Inspired press is that the agreement, which Is regarded ns already violated In spirit by the Austrian foreign minister's ef forts to extend and consolidate the Au strian sphere of influence) by a private bargain with the sultan for the con struction of the railroad, should be abrogated. Russia la now left a free hEnd to work out her own policy In the Near East. Negotiations are still be ing conducted to the end of inducing Austria to withdraw scheme, but no hope of their succers Is he'd out on cither the Austrian or the Russian side. The principal efforts at present are being devoted to arranging a new grouping of the powers. It being thought here that Russia ajid Great Britain might enter Into an agreement for Joint action In Macedonia and that these two powers would he supported by France, and perhaps by Italy. The defection of such an important power as Austria, which, on account of her geographical position, shared with Rus?ia the' leading role in the efforts to settle the Macedonian prob lems, renders the outlook dark. Since the seriousness of the Russian opposi tion to Austria's plans has become ev ident, hints have been thrown out from Vienna that Russia and Italy, as the powers most directly Interested, would be allowed in the way of com pensation to construct railroad lines, Itc.ly one through Albania and Russia a line from the Danube to the Adriatic ,-ea. Both powers, however, decline to accept this proposal. The Russian ambassador to Turkey, M. Zlncvieff. at a lengthy audience with the sultan on Friday submitted Russia's objections to the construction of the proposed railroad, which, it Is confidently expected here will result in the postponement of the Austrian project. The' impression that Austria is act ing with the full cognizance and' sup port of Germany, which has been con firmed by formal statements given out by German government officials, has resulted in an outburst of anger against that country affecting all cir cles of trie missian preps nu puuiiu. This antagonism is felt with especial force in the army where It is believed Teutonic influences are back of Turk ish activity on the Perso-Russian frontier, which again has .assumed a menacing phase. Vienna, Feb. 16. Despite official assurance that harmony has been re established between Austria and Rus sia, the situation arising from the question of railway concessions in the Balkans has not lost its tension.
