' (Wash. Cor. J. Y. Star.)
Pi Inco lllsmarck, according to private let
ters lccclvtd here, has been making Inqui
ries of the American Legation at Ilerlln In
rtgord to the public caicerof Commissioner
William Walter Phelps. Piom this fact
the Inference, Is drawn that tho wily Ger
man Chancellor has already come to the
conclusion that Mr. Phelps will bo the new
Minister of tho United States to Germany,
New Jirsey filcnds of tho Toancck states
man havo had for some time a very decided
opinion in the same direction. Tho only
clement ot uncertainty they admit is the
ivoudcrful capacity with which Mr,
Phelpt' brother Commissioner, John
A, Kassou, has of shouldcilng his
way to nuy given point ho sets his mind
upon, utteily regardless of other people's
corns or pcicoual comfort. IJotli Kassou
and Phelps aro on the best of terms with
Pieiuler Ulalue, Kassuu was pmbably
named first on tho commission hocauso ha
had once for a hilef period served as Min
ister to Ilerlln, whllo Phelps' pievlous term
of diplomatic service had been coufluod to
Austila. Notwithstanding this accidental
advantage, ami making full allowance for
Kassou's pushing capacities, tho New
Jcisey man's supporters behove that on tho
conclusion ot tho Saraoan negotiations ho
