With regard to the visit of the Gler

who is in close relations with th
Imperial Foreign Office.
IIerr Albrecht Wirth of Munich
one of the most distinguished prc

has contributed a signed article t
Dex Tag on the possibility of Presi
dent Roosevelt and Emperor Willia
exchanging visits. Dr. Wirth is nc
only a noted writer on political affair
but his coilnections with the Imperil
Foreign Office are very close, and a
a consequence his suggestions are no
only interesting but in a way may h
taken as semi-official.

The logie of events have force&

0 ower and the character and attain

nitch to increase the prestige of the
Uiifted States ibroad,
.His intQrest.in the Janestown'x
u6sition has been unwavering. Twice
ile has -nade it the subject of a see
i tion;in his message to Congress,. and.
he has always. expressed himself as
cordially ii sympathy with- the mov4
ment to celebrate the birth of the
t nation. In fact he has gone to the
- extent of saying that the foundatioi
of Jamestown is an event "Which
- must be celebrated by the American
people as a whole.''
At no time could the Emperor's
- visit be such a compliment to Mr.
Roosevelt personally or to the Ameri
- an people, as on the occasion of the
Ter-centennial celebration, and it is
l certain that at no other time could the
- Kaiser's coming have such an iflu

- dranatic as could be conjured by any
t wizard of the pen.

I follow Dr. Wirth's suggestion and

to carry the crowds who would like
to welcome him.
