The Anti-Semitic party has wholly captured Vienna. In the voting

for the municipal control of the capital this party received thirty thousand votes against seven thousand given to the Liberals, and will therefore be able to appoint all officials. The result is received with exultation by the Clericals, and ap- pears to be due to a junction of that party with the Socialists and the haters of the Jews. It is, however, distasteful to the Government, which foresees complications in the Parliaments of the Dual Empire, and to the better classes of the capital, who think the movement really directed against property, The

Government has, it appears, the right of superseding the city executive by an Imperial Commissioner, but hesitates to exercise it, and will, it is probable, wait to see how the new majority behaves.
