Excerpt from Stead's Review: July 27th, 1918
Apparently the German-speaking Aus trians are in favour of such a move, but the Magyars violently oppose it. Whether this opposition can be overcome depends a good deal upon the danger which threatens Austria owing to internal disr... uption at a time when united action is urgently needed. Dr. Weherle, the Premier of Hungary, is described as a. Moderate Liberal, and there fore opposed to the Junker party, led by Count Tisza, which is dead against any measure which would give the Slavs a fair share in the Government of their own pro vinces. Weherie introduced an Electoral Reform Bill early this year which would enfranchise all the inhabitants of Hungary and establish the principal of one man one vote. If it becomes law the Magyars will be held in check, and the Slavs will get fair representation in Parliament. In April Dr. Weherle resigned, but re-ac cepted office on condition that Parliament should be dissolved if he failed to carry his Bill through the House. Recent cables announce his second resignation, but later ones describe him as still in office, and as agreeing to the demand of the jugo-slavs and the strikers, that the promised electoral reform should be granted by the end of July. If it is then the chance of disrup tion in Austria will greatly diminish. So much for the southern Slavs.
