The government hesitated to force the company owning the mine in which Austrians and Britishers are heavily invested to meet the miners demands fearing it might lead to complications with foreign governments It would also lead authorities feared to similar strikes for wage increases among Hungar ian miners throughout the country Only Angers Men Premier Goemboes sought without success to end
