WILLIAM WALTER PHELPS
AS HE WAS KNOWN IN BERLIN AND
ELSEWHERE IN EUROPE -HIS DIP?
LOMATIC WORK- -8QME PER
Ij.ir.il .ti. June 19.
It seoma b-:t ths other day thal I saw Mr.
"William Walt tr Phelps In Berlin, and said ?..un?
tiling tn these columns about bis diplomatic
work as American Minister to Germany, In
truth, it was a year ago, bul what ls s > ii ?
And this m >rnltiK comes ti'" news thai we ai
never to j-- ? him again, In Berlin r el
in that Europe In which. American as h< was
U> th,- Unger tips, he a ? mu rh d ii fl ' 1 an l
which delighted In him H I loss I h
try In h. t ? .-. Ith Eur ?pe, t lo rn all
had he lived, li" mig have repre?
sented her a* a Eu urt. For h waa
-me of that nan ? | io num. - ul band f Ami l
cuns who have u real Insight hti ? the affairs and
lif?? of this r -mewl).it old/sr c mtlnent.
He had lived abroa 1 long
hend Uim or three countrii ; one of thei i being
his own. I will take the lib rty of saying that
there ar.- c Ttaln particulars In which an I
Jean's i.i. g bli own c mntry ls the better
and pnr"i' for a residence elsewhere. Whether
that win bc disputed by the untravelled Ameri?
can I know not He sometimes disputes propo
sitions on which I ghou]d have th
men of tense were agreed. Put Mr. Phelps
would not have disputed it. T know whs I -;
opinions w.-rc. That ard many other si)
Wc have discussed in Berlin, In Homburg, ami
'elsewhere. Tou know well ii iw strongly be IjcI.1
his opinions and with what tenacity he d< -
fencfid th. rn. It was, I always thought, because
they matured slowly In his mind. When he tirst
came abroad he was not quite the same man
whom wc knew In tbe later years of his Hfi He
brought with him the uaual stock of American
prepossess! i -. at I he relinquished his h
one or an .'her with obvious reluctance. Bul be
had far too much Inl nd a 1 ince of
character union too even, to all iw him to remain
amid new experiences the victim of old preju?
dices ins mind opened, perhaps, in a rather
leisurely way. but lt opened, and the d<
ajar tho light poured In In fli ids.
llo came early to see that a patriotism baaed
on cofhparii ns of his own country with . tbers
was a broad r and purer i than that
Which eton d Ita i yes as if In terr r lest a kt wl
? of oth ?? countries might sbake one's alle?
giance t i < ne'a own. To shrli i knowl
edglng a quaU y because lt was not American,
or not exclusively American, seemed t.. him but
a poor tribute to the Repu Ile he loved, ind ?
poor evidence ot faith. In her Institutions. !!??
hal within him. more -wv. a tense of Juste an I
of honor such as forbade him to deny Ger
many what was Juc to Germany.
It mac be said of evi ry aide ind open-minded
American wh i comes to Europe that Europe is
to hirr. i-i atlon. if he comes as Minister lt
ls perhaps best of all, for ..s Mlnlai
c instantly to uphi: l the Interests of hu own
people nd :' ? he ls learning In the quick* I
surest way the distinguishing characteristics
an. mc ii. whose Government he ls ac?
credited. Mos! interesting was it to watch the
process r '? as Mr. Phi Ips's,
His Amer! inlsm was nol one whit less pro?
nounced and positive a: the end of his Eui pean
career than at thc beginning, but it was more
enllghti ii. d and far more ? fi "? ll from tl." mis?
sionary p dnl of view; which was his point uf
view pretty fre luently. I mean that he under*
;? I far !? ttl r after a few years' ex:
how t i appei i to the European mind which hi
wanted to rear li. and which lt was hla official
duty to rah. He was a bettor Minister as
**.ii ns a 1 uer American.
The truth la so obvious thal ir may ieei i
lang : i it, hut it is well nevertheless,
* u.i.i ?*? it a.^A ... dfaStM it msammm Mr
. Afmaelf, In tho intensity of his paaslon f ^ his
owr people ar.l his 1 .yelty to the Ideas whh.h
wen his anl <ur Inheritance, used to dispute
this. To dispute lt seemed to him a kind of
hoenage be owed t< the ila*-, it served no ither
Important purp ie. ii* nev r misled hla hearer*,
rii.r misled himself for more than a m iment.
Indeed, I will venture to say th il tl Ugh he
had a trained mind, argument was never his
strong point, uni I to tl -?
l>uaiin.-s . r ma'i. i-.s of law In which he wai an
expert His perceptions were keen; and he bad
a pow?-r of absorbing as well ai knowl?
edge. Tin- delicacy of hi- ? wai aim..st
feminine; a word which, with referen ?? to this
subject, I use as a superlative, You
praise any man's perceptions nu.iv highly than
by saying they ar- feminine. He had thal in?

his fidelity to the principles of th<- Am

were not satisfied with his manner. He lacked
something of the genial ruffianism of thc Bow
