Franz Josef meets with heir

January 28, 1915

Rumors of an abdication by the Austrian emperor have been revived after the heir to the throne, Archduke Karl, had a "long interview" with Franz Josef after his return from his trip to German Military headquarters.

The New York Times reports that a dispatch to the Temps, a Parisian newspaper, from Basle, Switzerland, is connected to the rumor that the Austrian emperor will abdicate in favor of Archduke Karl, as a result of the Archduke's visit to Germany.
