stuergxn oi Austria ine aecn ot an
irresponsible political fanatic, , if hot
neurasthenic whose mind hss given
Way under the strain of the war.
1 Dr. Friedrich Adler, the assassin, la
described by acquaintances ai a man
of a naturally fanatical temperament,
in whose family Insanity runs. His
lister has been in an insane asyfum
for years.s These acquaintances say
that Adler has given the impression
for months of one whose nerves were
stretched to the breaking point and
-hat his wild demeanor had caused
much agitation in the socialist central
committee, of which he was secretary.'
Young Adler led a small but vehe
ment opposition to the policy of the
. arty under his father's leadership.
The Vorwaerts, which ' expresses
the-strongest disapproval of Dr. Ad
ler's' deed,, asserts that he was un
doubtedly demented when he commit
ted thejnurder, as nobody tn his
right senses, could have expected
favorable results from Such an act.
Premier Stuergkh's last political act
was to prohibit two big meetings
called for today as demonstrations in
ftivor of the convocation of ParJia
ment. AHe-also designed on the part
of the gqvernment to participate in a
conference "of parliamentary officiaU
tomorrow to discuss the possibility of
the resumption of sittings of the rep
resentatives. It is not thought the
premier's death will have any effect
for or against the convocation, as he
only acted as representative di the
system in opposition thereto. There
is no disposition to charge Adler's
act to the parties which demanded the
reconvening of the Diet. ,
Just a Political Crank.
- Vienna, Oct. 22 (Via London, Oct.
23.) Government circtes here regard
;he killing of Premier Siu.rglch as an
act of a political crank, which can in
no wise influence the political situa
tion or the course of the ws.r. This
statement was made to the corre
opondent of the Associated Press in
high responsible quarters.
It is pointed out that the time
which has elapsed since the murder
lias shown that Adler, the assassin,
(lands alone. His act -is disavowed
by the socialist party and press arid
rondemned by his father, Victor Ad
ler, socialist . member of .she lower
i hanfber of the Reichstag.
Adlet stated to the police that he
thot Stu'ergkh because thev premier
opposed the convening of Parlia
ment, --"it is jtated officially that
Stuergkh had at no time done this
and that he could not do it because
the convening of , Parliament was a
matter in the hands of the political
parties. 1 " ..' ,
The Austro-Hungarlan -p r e s i
brands Adler as axvile, irresponsible
criminal and without exception de
plores the fact that the act of a crazy
man should disturb the peace of th:
people. The city is quiet. The pub
lic urges the murder as ( purely pri
