AUSTRIA-HUNGARY
AND
THE
WAR
Servia's
Permanent
Conspiracy
and
the
*'
Mask
Fallen
from
the
Face
of
Russia
"
By
COUNT
ALBERT
APPONYI
[Count
Albert
Apponyi,
for
44
years
one
of
the
leading
figuresof
Hungarian
public
life,
-was
formerly
Speaker
of
the
Hungarian
Parliament
and
later
Minister
of
Education,
and
is
a
statesman
of
international
repute,
known
all
over
the
world
for
his
activities
on
behalf
of
international
arbitration,
having
been
foryears
one
of
the
active
leaders
of
the
Interparliamentary
Peace
Union.]
I
consider
it
highly
important
that
the
case
for
Austria-
Hungary,
in
the
present
conflict
of
nations,
should
be
put
before
the
American
public
with
minute
precision.
We
are
all
agreed
in
abhorring
warand
in
deploring
the
out-
break
of
acatastrophe
the
Hke
of
which
history
has
never
wit-
nessed.
Those
who
are
responsible
for
it
will
forever
remain
branded
with
a
stigma
of
infamy
whichno
amount
of
mihtary
or
poHticalsuccess
can
wipe
off
their
foreheads.
FeeHng
as
strongly
as
I
do
on
that
point,
devoted
as
I
am
to
the
peace
ideal,
I
consider
myself
quahfied
to
proclaim
before
the
whole
world
that
my
country
is
free
from
guilt
in
the
horrible
contest
which
has
been
forced
upon
her,
and
thatshe
can
face
it
with
all
the
moral
power
of
a
pure
conscience.
Servia's
Territorial
Ambitions
End
in
the
Present
"War
The
direct
cause
of
the
outbreak
is
Servia's
insane
ambition
to
extend
her
dominion
over
those
southern
provinces
of
Austria-
Hungary,
Bosnia
and
Herzegovina
to
begin
with,
Croatia
and
the
Slovene
countries
to
follow,
where
South
Slavs
live
in
great
numbers.
Never
could
a
small
country
like
Servia
nourish
such
designs
againstagreat
Power,
unless
it
felt
sure
of
being
sup-
ported
by
some
other
great
Power.
Recent
developments
have
showii
thatServia
had
good
reasons
to
expect
such
support.
On
behalf
of
the
mad
ambitions;
not
warrantedeven
by
the
claims
of
racial
kinship,
since
the
Roman
CathoHc
Croats
generally
abhor
Servia,
a
constant
agitation
was
organized
in
the
afore-
mentioned
parts
of
Austria
and
Hungary.
