The Kaiser's Motive.
Copenhagen. (By Cable.)-The pre
parations whic:h have bec made for
the reception of Kaiser William, who
arrived here Monday afternoon, were
far from enborate. During his stay
here the Kaiser will be received in
semi-official state. In court circles his
visit will be taken as merely a courte
sy call upon King Christian and an ef
fort is being made to impress this fact
upon the people generally.
This attempt, however, has not met
with much success, as the people be
lieve that there is some political move
behind the visit of the Gerrian ruler.
In political circles the view is held
that the Kaiser will make an attempt
to convince King Christian that the
Baltic Sea should be closed to war
ships of all nations except those which
border on the sea. If the Emperor suc
ceeds in doing this, it will cause the
greatest surprise, for the Danes are
rapidly developing the suspicion that
the Kaiser's designs upon the Baltic
are for the purpose of converting that
sea into a Germ. lake.
