rxms, July 7. Fmporor William of Germany, " I
after visiting tho French training ship Iphl- I
ccnio at Bergen, Nnrwny, yesterday, tole- I
graphod thn following message to President 1
Loubctt I
" I havo had tho pleasuro of seeing tho Iphl- 1
genlo nud tho )oiing French sailors, whoso 1
military and s)mpathutlc bearing was worthy 1
of their noblo country. Tho sight mndo a I
warm Impression upon my heart, whloh Is that I
of a sailor and n comrade. I am rojoteed at the I
gracious reception accorded to mo by tho Cap- I
tain, oflleers and crew, and congratulato myself I
upon the happy clrcuuistnnco whlcli enabled I
mo to moot tho IphJgeuIo nud your amlablo I
compatriots" I
Tho Prosidcnt In reply sont tho Emperor a I
telegram, siDltig; I
"lain greatly touched by your Majesty's do- 1
spatch, abovo all by tho terms in whloh you I
speak of tho 1 ronch fleet nnd the impression I
mado upon )ou. I tliatik your Slniosty." I
llEnt.tv. July 7, Tho Cologne Uazette says in I
an aittclo on tlio excihnng'o of visits by the I
commnndor of tlio Iphlgeulo nnd Fmperor I
William at Bergen that theso courteous atton- I
tlons are fresh proofs of how much more ami- I
ablo Franco has folt toward Gormnny lately. I
It adds thnt tlio meeting was not aooldontal,
but tliat Franco decided, aftor mature con- I
sldcratlon. that tho French oommander should I
visit tho Ftnpoior. This Is shown by tho fnct J
that it was announced on July 2 that the meet- '
lug was likely to take place.
Tho tolegrams oxchangod by Kmporor W'll-
llnm and Piesident Loubet, beyond belns I
genuine evidence ot their friendliness, wero j
timed to enable tho Fmpcror to destroy tho ' I
idea, whlcli Is still maintained in somo quar- jfl
tcrs, that a public trial of Dreyfus will moan
that It was to Gcimnny that tho alleged lu-
formation concerning tho French dofonces was fl
sold. The entire Berreu Incident has disposed
filially of this fiantle scare. , I
I.onuon, July 8. Tho Paris correspondent of

r.mporor William on board tho French train-
ing ship Iplilgenlo, which ho visited yester- I
day to return a call mndo upon him

most cordial charaetur. With Ids approval tho U

Losdov, July 7 In tlio House of Commons fl
to-day Sir Henry Campbell-Baniiermnn. tho fl
Opposition leader, asked tho Government H
whether or not tho statement made In tlio H
7'imes to-day that Great Britain was sending H
troops and nmmunltion to South Africa was H
ofllcinl. Mr. Arthur J Balfour, tho Govern- H
ment leader, in reply, said: H
"No, and no contingency has yet arisen H
whlcli necessitates any matorlal Increase of H
tho forces In Africa, but I think It necessary In H
tlio existing circumstances to take steps to H
bring tho force to a propor standard ot of- H
llciency nnd mobility." Cheers J H
Sir II. Catnpbell-llnnncrtuau again rose and H
read tho full toxt of tlio Twin's nrtlclo Then jfl
ho asked If this was a new declaration of the H
Government's policy. Mr. Balfour said lie did H
not think that tho paragraph just read con-
talned any new declaration of policy, but he H
thought that the Government would be want- H
ing in its obvious duties if it was not prepared t
for any emorgency, howovor unllkoly tho occa- M
sion might bo to nriso. t
Mr. Balfour's reply, which is really an admls- M
sion of tho ofllcinl character of tho Tunrs'i M
statement, created a sensation In the House. M
Tlio action ot tho Government theroln defined M
is regarded as tlio llrst nggrcsslvo stopslnco M
tho failure of the Bloomfonteln conference be- M
tween Sir Alfred Mllner nnd President KrUger. M
Mr. Labouchoro asked Mr. Balfour if tho oftl- M
cers mentioned as going to tho Capo Colony to H
organie tho resldonts, pollco nnd local forcos H
at various points on the frontier would go with jH
tlie consent of the governments of tho Capo H
Colony and Natal. Mr. Balfour replied that ho M
did not know. M
Tlio War Oflleo announces that two com- M
panics of engineers and two companlos of tlm M
Army Servleo Corps will start on July 8 anil H
