NOT A D[[P GAME GERMAN RMPEROR IS ONLY ACT ING IN NATURAL WAY. HAS NO. ULTERIOR MOTIVE Prince Henry's Coming and Christen ing the Yacht Merely the Result of the Kaiser's Personal In terest in Such Matters. (By Associated Press.) Berlin, Jan. 25.-Commenting on the visit of Prince Henry to the United States, a Berlin correspondent says: Prince Henry's mission to America is regarded here as a good natured at tempt of the emperor to make him self agreeable to a friendly nation whose power, wealth' and influence in the world are steadily increasing. Possibly he rememberes that the visit of the Grand Duke Alexis to America left a permanent impression and created an amiable prejudice in favor of Russia, but it is not probable that he has planned a counter stroke to offset the English concessions to America and Lord Salisbury's good offices in the Spanish war. Diplomatic opinions here is that Prince Henry's visit is regarded too seriously at Vienna, Paris and London and that the British government allowed itself to be drawn too easily into making a half revelation of the important services rendered to the United States in~a criti cal period. Glad to Meet Pighting Bob. It is den~ied strenuously by, the officials that there to any evidence that Ger many was behind Austria-Hungary in proposing' European intervention, in Whd diillomlatic theory here is that thy 'G'erman entperot is not play~ng a deep game in having his yacht ziamed by a tellow-4portsman's daou ter with Prince Henry as a witness. The em peror is clearly taking a str..ng person al interest in the affair and doing every thing possible to dignify the mission. Prince Henry is undertaking the mis saon with great spirit, and is thoroughly interested in all the details and is said to be looking forward with great pleasure to meeting an old friend, Rear Admiral Evans. The emperor's gift for the German American museum at Harvard will be a more costly and comprehensive ex hibit of German art then is generally supposed. The emperor likes to pay compliments and do things in a hand some way, and his motives are not nec essarily self-interested. GROWERS OF TOBACCO. Wisconsin Forms a League Against Cuban Tobacco.
