By WILLIAM BAYNARD HALE.
Staff Correspondent of the International
(The following report of an interview
witli Crown Prince Rupfrecht of
Cavaria, commi nder of the German
j forces on the somme tront, was trans- j
I mitted by Dr. Hale by cable several j
j days ago e.nd intercepted by the'
British censor, who has not yet per-j
mited it to pass. I)r. Hale repeated it,
therefore, direct from Germany by ]
Headquarters of Field Marshal,!
the Crown Prince of Bavaria, Somme j
Front, Sept. 11 (via Sayville).?His;
royal highness, the Crown Prince of
Brvaria, was extremely interesting at
luncheon tod iy, and altogether without
authority or permission and trusting
solely to his good nature, I ven|
tured to set down a few of his re|
marks in order that the world may
hear directly from the commander of
the Oermar. forces which during the
past three days have "been fighting the
great battle on the Somme.
The crown prince, with his closely
clipped mustache, his brown skull
showing through his iron gray hair,
might seem a more vigorous and much
younger edition of Elihu Root. His
een face, swiftly glancing eyes and
delicate but strong hands gave the
impression that he is trim, alive and
alert from top.to toe.
Across the table wius 12-year-old i
Prince Adelbert, permitted for one
holiday week to catch a never-to-be
forgotten glimpse of a frontier in
war time?the first gleam of innocence
and sportiveness I had seen for many
days in this stern womanless world
o* warriors and wounds.
"I never expected," observed the
crown prince smilingly, "engage in
the multifarious occupations which 1
now find myself pursuing. Very often
I am constructing railroads, erecting
buildings, organizing delivery services,
j superintending postoffices, building
i hosoitnls and tilline: the fields.

aim and purposes are all in the dreadful
business of extinguishing 'human
"Yec," continued the crown prince,
with desperate seriousness, "Sunday,
Monday and Tuesday, the aj3 whose
tragic activity you were lucky or unlucky
enough to toe a witness of,
marked the culmination thus far of tho
first desperate effort of the entente to
force our positions. My officers told
you, or will tell you, the result as we
on this side see-it. Our losses in territory
may tie seen on *he map with
a microscope. Their losses in that far |
more precious thing?humi;n life?
are simply prodigious amply and in
full coin have they paid for every foot
of ground we sold them. They can
have all they want at the same price.
We have reserve, constituted of
trained men, which has not yet been
drawn upon. We are not like the entente
generals, forced to throw raw,
untrained recruits into the very front
of the fighting.
"Whether this will be the last effort
I we can not know. We have taken
measure of their strength at its
maximum tide and are prepared for
anything they can deliver. For the
sake of the thousands "whom new
attacks will slay in vain we hope they
have learned a lesson. So far as the
interests of the -fatherland are concerned,
we are indifferent, indeed inclined
to welcome any further folly
I they may indulge in.
"During the past week you have
seen our front and been well over the
whole zone reaching back to our base.
You can not have failed to see the
absolutely impregnable natu. of our
positions ana the superabundant ade\
quacy of our preparations. If you

you may have served the cause of humanity.
