The Macedonian Question, 1908-1912. (847 words)
Early in 1908 Russia and Austria-Hungary fell out over the execution of the Mürzsteg program, by the terms of which a system of reform had been instituted in Macedonia.
In January, 1908, Baron Aerenthal announced that Austria-Hungary had applied for permission to survey the ground for a railroad to connect the terminus of the Bosnian Railway with the line running from Metrovitza to Salonica.
Baron Aerenthal promptly dispelled all doubts as to the correctness of Russia's inference by declaring that the special task of Russia and Austria in Macedonia was concluded.
