COUNT TISZA AND KAISER
"GERMANY RUNS THE SHOW."
LONDON, December 7.
(Received December 8, at 9.50 a.m.)
The ' Morning Post' correspondent's despatch from Italy deals with a recent visit of Count Tisza (Hungarian Premier) to Germany for the purpose of informing the Kaiser that he could not guarantee the good-will and loyalty of Hungary unless more attention were paid to Hungarian interests.
The Kaiser was furious, and remarked: " Open enemies are not always the more dangerous. The egotism of your people is likely to upset the whole plan of campaign." Count Tisza stuck to his point—i.e., that three army corps should be sent to defend the Hungarian plains and throw back the Russians across the Carpathians, otherwise his Cabinet would resign. An editorial article in a leading Opposition paper in Hungary says: 'All we can see is that the Premier had a big audience with the German Emperor. We are at his mercy, and the safety of our country is also. The Germans have taken over even the constitutional rights of our monarchy. Our position is as if we were without an Emperor, and had not raised a four-million army for the German General Staff to dispose of."
