Transcript "// they take it into their heads, in order to please the Pan- Germanists who prolong the war, to re-establish absolutism and to govern Austria by the methods of Stiirgck, then the working class will be obliged to rise and fight for the people's rights/' The manifesto calls upon all working men and women to remain in fighting order, so that at any moment they will be ready to join in the conflict. On the other hand, facts are coming to light like the Report of the Commission controlling State debts, which actually deals with "sacred militarism"—the organs of the military system. Apparently the central Government was not able to prevent the appearance of this Report—in Austria, the classic home of the military censorship. Admitting that the issue of credit notes has reached incredible dimensions, the Report states that the feverish work of the bank of issue may awaken the most serious doubts from the financial, banking, and economic standpoint, and that the main reason for the particularly swollen demands of the War Department is constituted by "on the one hand, staff-officers' pay with war-time increases, which in the rear attains totally disproportionate rates; and, on the other hand, the uneconomical massing of troops behind the front. Finally, contractors are receiving excessive prices for supplies." Who will not have recalled, reading this, the speeches in the Duma before the revolution, directed against the manarchical system? The bribery of officers by means of increased pay, as well as the massing of troops in the rear, are "inevitable and necessary" phenomena. The events at Trieste and Cracow show the necessity of collecting troops in the rear. The troops are so unreliable that the Government has to try several regiments before, at last, volunteers can be found to take upon themselves the repulsive "duty" of fratricide. At Trieste the town militia joined the participants in the hunger riots, while at Cracow the mob nearly managed to sack the military food dumps, until the authorities succeeded in bringing armed force to bear. There were even cases of street fighting. The risings take place without organisation, elementally; but from the point of view of the revolution, they have a symptomatic character. Desertion is developing with gigantic strides in the Army; and it is measurable only by Russian post-revolutionary r I (24)
