dor Whito in an interview with a
correspondent of tho Associated
Press B.id that the wholo flurry of
indignation in the two countries
is just as baseless this yoar as last
and may even bo moro baseless.
"In my judgment it emanates
ontirely from a small number of
pooplo who seok to fish in trou
bled waters. As a mattor of fnct
Qormany knows and shows that

licy iu tho East is to remain on
good torms with tho United Slates.
She has no earthly motive to 1 11 Ice
tho sido of tho Spaniards or the
insurgents, or to stir thtm up.
That thero aro some Germans at
Honckoug and oUewhoro who
think they do not like Amoricaus
is just ns true as that thero aro
somo Americans there and else
whero who do not liko Germans.
But such gentlemen direct neither

ment nor that of tho Gnrraan Of
fice Tho relations of our country
and Germany wero perfectly har
monious duriUL' tho war, aud since
tho war tho Germans havo acqui
esced in our sugestiona. Ttiy
saw from tho beginniug how the
war was to end and they occopted
tho situation cordially.
"So far from quarreling at this
lato day over Pauitio poBnoauous,
thoy are moro and moro inclined
to work with us in the extousiou
of commerce and civilization.
About a week ago they telegraph
ed to thoir cousulnr representative
at Iloilo on no account to land any
force for the protection of tho
Spaniards but to leave that mattor
to tho Americans."
