be a genuine feeling of relief in diplomatic and

Interest in Emperor William—Open
ing of the Whistler Exhibition.
(Special by French Cable to The Tribune.)
• Copyright. 1905. by The Tribune Association.)
Paris. May 13.— A1l eyes in France to-day are
turned toward Emperor William. A thrill of
emotion swept over the country when it was
learned that the German Emperor was about to
celebrate the memory of those who fell at
Gravelotte by a military demonstration, with ar
tillery salutes, parades and manoeuvres. The
uneasiness is all the more keen owing to the
general impression in France that the recent
Teutonic pinpricks coming from the reptile
press and the Kaiser's go-ahead policy in Mo
rocco were mere pretexts to force a quarrel
upon France. The trend of feeling was that
Kaiser William, irritated at seeing England,
Italy and Spain all becoming more friendly and
entering into closer relations with the French
Republic, was ready, If necessary, to provoke
war. It was feared that the Kaiser, by speech
or act at Gravelotte, would seek to irritate
France or to humiliate French amour propre.
The Paris newspapers forthwith sent their most
capable writers and correspondents to Grave
lotte. Emperor William's portrait appeared In
a dozen Journals in Paris, while the front pages
of the "M'ltin," the ''Figaro, 1 ' the "Gaulols," the
"Journal," the "Echo de Paris," the "Eclair,"
the "Gil Bias" and the "Libre Parole" were al
most exclusively devoted to Gravelotte. The
"Gaulois" published a special illustrated sup
plement giving descriptions of the battle of
Gravelotte by eye witnesses, such as the late
General Philip Sheridan, Prince Bismarck, Gen
eral dv Barall, Maurice Busch and others.
Emlle Faguet, of the French Academy, urged
all patriotic Frenchmen to read "Les Oberle,"
by Rene Bazin, and "Au Service de l'Allema'gne,"
by Maurice Barrcs, "while the German Emperor
Is passing over the plains of Alsace not with
out melancholy souvenirs."
Consequently, after all this commotion and
excitement, it was with iminensr satisfaction
that France learned that Emperor William so
modified the original programme at Gravelotte
as not to wound Gallic susceptibilities. The
eighteen French special correspondents who
telegraphed glowing descriptions of the Imperial
ceremony of the dedication of the Gravelotte
H;'l!e. in Gravelotte Cemetery, were unanimous
in saying that the Kaiser gave France un ob
ject lesson, and one th.-.t was least 'xpected,
namely, by refraining from grandiloquent mar
tial speeches, tiut silently and with deep re
ligious emotion doing honor to the bones of
those killed at Gravelotte, and the sentence in
the German pastor's address spoken in pres
ence of the Emperor. "We should 6alute with
profound reverence those flaps that witnessed
the glorious martyrdom of the German and of
French soldiers," 1p Quoted. The French corre
■ nts all gave minute descriptions of Kaiser
William's persona] appearance, of his paternal,
benevolent exi-reseion of countenance, and they
dwelt upon the martial appenrance of the Ger
man soldiers. The "Figaro" correspondent,
Jules Huret, said: "Kaiser William always has
a happy intuition of symbols, and the golden
un?el of peace that was before him during the
ceremony prevented the Emperor from uttering
any warlike discourse." The extraordinary in
terest in regard to the German Emperor at
Gravelotte shown by the French nation indi
cates the nervous tension that existed for the
past fortnight, but with characteristic impres
sionable temperament France draws a long
breath of relief to find that the Gravelotte cere
mony is a factor for peace rather than for war.
The question of French neutrality in the Far
Eait occupies little public attention, and in dip
lomatic circles there is absolute confidence that
friction with Japan or with England is now
The Mediterranean autoboat contest. In the
opinion of naval experts, does not show that
autoboats in the present stage of their develop
ment cp.n be of real service to maritime war
fare. From the start at Algiers they had to
be watched and protected by the gunboats and
destroyers of the whole squadron, which had
to be mobilized to accompany the autoboats.
Had they started alone they would not have
been able to keep afloat In ordinary Mediter
ranean weather, and the danger of their ex
plosive fuel is regarded as an insurmountable
objection for naval purpose?.
The Paris Bourse was firmer to-day, especially
in government securities, than for three months.
This if attributed to the pacific attitude of Em
peror William at Gravelotte and Metz, also to
the visit to the Quai d'Orsay made by the Jap
sfinlster, Dr. Motono, yesterday
noon, previous to his departure fcr The Hague,
Dr. Motono having expressed to M. Deieusse
that his government felt satisfied with the
French measures for ;■!<::;. rving neutrality in
French waters in the Far East.

Government's Policy Toward America. How
ever, Meets General Approval.
Berlin, May :;:.— The. discussion of German- Ameri

German government would not grant the most
favored nation treatment to the I'nitpd States under
the new tariff law, shows that the government's
policy is strongly Indorsed by tho German people.
Most of the moderate newspapers insist that the
policy of tho former Chancellor. Count Caprtvt,
of placing on American goods the same duties as
on thp goods of treaty countries which obtained
reductions only by making corresponding reduc
:: their imports from Germany can, under
no circumstance?, be continued.
There Is com] lalnt at the fact that the United
States buys only about half as much frym Germany
as Germany buys from the I'nlted States, This is
high American tariff, and it is
asked that the United States reduce its duties to
something nearer tho German level. Some of the op

Regarding the fameos
catarrh remedy, Peruna,
Col. Lcomis writes:
"I have been a sn£
ferer from nasal ca
tarrh for asverai
•I have been treated
by phylsicians and
used various remedies,
with no favorable re
"I was advised to
try Peruna. and after
taking three bottles, I
was completely cured
of my ailment.
"From my own «*>
perience with this
medicine. I can recom
mend Ferur.a as an
efficient catarrh rem
edy to any one simi
larly afflicted."
Pe-ru-na Contains No
One reason why Para

use in so many home* Is
that it contains no nar
cotics of any kind. Pe
runa la perfectly harm
less. It can be used any
length of time without
acquiring a &rag habit.
Peruna does not pro
duce temporary results.
It is permanent In Its
It has no bad effect
upon tha system, and
gradually eliminates ca
tarrh by removing the
causa oX catarrh. There
are a multitude of homes
where Peruna has been
used off and on lor twen
ty years.
It soon develops Into chronic catarrh.
One bottle of Peruna would have readily cured
it while it was yet a cold.
If it becomes chronic catarrh. It sometimes. ;
requires several bottles of: Peruna to effect ft ■
But, whether a cold or chronic catarrh, Peruna,
is the remedy the worM over.
