"We are Italians, and we represent

Dr. Pittaco. "Our presence in Amer?

with neither immigration nor economic
restrictions against any of the many
races of the Adriatic coast.

MUNICH, Feb. 27.- This is the
story of the arrest of Prince Joachim
at a hotel here, as related by a man
familiar with the circumstances:
The prince was discovered at a
writing table, with the princess seated
in an armchair nearby, -reading a

of Hohenzollern ?" said the spokes?
man of the party sent to arrest him
in connection with the alleged royal?
The prince eyed the soldiers a little
contemptuously, and then said:
"I suppose that is my name in new
Germany. What do you want?"
"We have come," replied the leader
of the soldiers, "to arrest you for
complicity in the reactionary plot."
"That's a lie." retorted the prince
while the princess burst into tears.

required to give his word as a gentle?
man to consider himself under re
He was required to repeat after the
sergeant the following pledge:
"I, Joachim Hohen/.ollern, consider
myself under arrest, and give my word
of honor not to escape from my bed?
room in this hotel."
Even this nominal arrest unnerved
the prince. He could not sleep that
I night, and went out into the hotel
j corridor to discuss with soldiers the
political situation. Then, toward
dawn, lie telephoned to the Prussian
Legation to protest, as a Prussi. n,
against his arrest, The official there
is said to have replied sharply that
the Bavarian minister was asleep and
could not be disturbed.
"Ah," retorted the prince, "what a

The prince and princess were ex
