This is highly offensive to Austria.
Vienna, Oct 31. The outlook in
Italy Is alarming to-day.
King Victor's forces in Tripoli are
threatened with worse than the dis
aster which has already overtaken
them. There Is danger of a clash
with Austria. An anti-militarist and
anti-monarchist uprising ls immi
African news ls still meagre owing
to the Italian control of the cables..
but It seems certain that the Turks
have re-occupied the outskirts of the
city of Tripoli and are likely to drive
the Italians out entirely.
Think Italians Lost 5,000 Killed,
Reports' that the Italians lost 5,000
killed and had 7.000 taken prisenera
are accepted here as true.
Should the Turks recapture Tri

slaughter of Italians follows after the
brutality of the Italian massacre of

native population was practically
wiped but under the pretense that
they might attack the Italians from
the rear while the letter were en
gaged with the Turks.
The shooting of Colonel Btroppa
by Private Gaetano Masetti as the
Twenty-fifth Infantry was leaving
Bologna for Tripoli yesterday was
not an isolated act of mutiny. Near
ly all the troops on their way to the
scene of hostlltles are rebellious and
the utmost difficulty is experienced
by their officers in handling them.
Official dispatches say his comrades
wanted to, lynch Masetti. The truth
Is that wide-spread sympathy is felt
What especially concerns Austria Is
the Italian Cabinet's decision to carry
out a big naval demonstration In
Turkish waters in defiance of Aus
tria's warning that Italian activities
must be confined to Africa.
The Impression In official circles
here Is that the Italian Government
has lost lis head and that the gravest
consequences may result from its
present outbreak of irrationality. The
rfdfenlons eua of th Italian vic
tories at the beginning of the Tri-
polltan campaign Is attributed to the
fact that the Turks were taken whol
ly by surprise. It is believed they
are ready now to put up a desperate
fight : ,
