from all sections of the house.
NO OCCASION FOR ANY TROI IJLK
I nolo Sam and Ciermany Have Keusons
Only for Friendship.
Continuing, the imperial chancellor
said that the journey of the emperor's
brother had no luditica! object save
the natural one of upholding the tra
ditional good relations between Prus
sia. Germany ami the United States.
which had existed since the days of
the great Frederick and the great
Washington. "Itoih nations." said
Count von Puelow. "have every reason

am not saying this for Germany alone,

his remarks amid the applause of the
house. Count von Iiuelow also assured
the, relchstag in a somewhat lengthy
speech that there was not the slightest
likelihood nor desirability of Germany
taking any steps to Interfere in the
course of affairs in South Africa. Such
a course, said the speaker, was not in
accord with German interests and pol
icy. If the government listened to
Ilerr Gradnauer and his adherents, he
continued, it would have to intervene
not only in South Africa, but In Arme
