comparable to what she has done for Washington. The Thames, al though It fills up pretty well at high tide. Is nowise comparable for vol ume or beauty of surroundings to your own Potomac." Just at present people In Wash ington are busy trying to find out lust how to entertain the royal i,?iits who are scheduled to come over here by and by; Just how they ought to be addressed:'Just what precedence should be observed and the like. These details seem entire- ! ly silly and inconsequential until thty suddenly become terribly im portant upon the realization that if anything goes wrong or isn't done Just according to regulations, there may be international misunder standings and serious results. The average person scarcely stops to think that if a nation wants to show its disapproval of . t' er na-I tion. a tiny little snub 01 mi - of its I distinguished citixen*. lia* that ef-i feet. And a tiny breach of etiquette 1 can easily be mistaken for a deliber- i ate discourtesy. If rules and regu- I lations are strictly followed, no1 matter how unimportant they may seem, then all goes well and the guests depart delighted. But Wash ington does not have royal visitors every day in the week and doesn't know the rules any too well. DIFFERENT STANDARDS result op the war. Perhaps in no way has the dif ference in standards brought about by the great war been more clearly evinced than by the visits of the two gentlemen who were in Washing ton recently. One. the President-elect of a Sout* American republic, came as an offi cial guest and was wonderfully en tertained as such; the other, a scion of a royal house in Europe, came quite unostentatiously as a private citizen and put himself up at one of the hotels, and all entertaining don? for him wan the s mple. informaT hospitality of a few personal friends or mutual friends o' personal ao quainances. Dr. Pesaoa. president-elect of Brn s?l. his wife, his daughter and his suite were the raison d'etre for some of the most elaborate and brilliant functions of the year. Prince Aage of Denmark came here not exactly incognito, but merely as a private traveler, taking in the sights of the national capital as he passed on en route to other cities in his American tour. I'ncle Sam was a host to the former, and the Danisa minister. M Brun. and his collea gues of the Danish legation and cir cle of intimate friends saw to It that the prince was not dull whit* in Washington. However, the whole thing was a bit upsetting, and nobody knows now Just what the program will be for the other royal guests who are du*? in Washington in the near future. Of course, some are coming with all sails set. a* one might say. and all standards blowing in the wind, and for them the nation will give of its best in formal, punctilious ceremony, i as well as generous hospitality; but suppose, for instance, some of the royal visitors choose to rome. as did Prince Aage. Just as pla?n travelers. What w;ll the method of procedure be? is the question ask<?d over tea-I cups and at the clubs. Well, the! more the speculation the more the I Interest, and so society is quite con- f tent to quietly await developments. ; In the meantime the rumors anent ? prospective visitors grow apace, and; now it is whispered that even the ? King and Queen of Italy may come' to the United States. It is generally; understood that besides and King' and Queen of Belgium and the Prince ' of Wales, th" Queen of Rumania! and the President of France and' Madame Poincare may also be Uncle'. Sam's guests this summer or early autumn, and the interest manifest gives a stimulus to all social activi ties. Already the effect of the news of th#? forthcoming roj a! visits has been felt in the city life, and houses and apartments are being sought for eagerly thus early for next autumn, for it is felt that Washington, as a winter resort, will be more than ever desirable. Another mission is on its way! Yes. th*y do seem to be endless, don't they* This one is an Abyssinian mission of three members, which is en route to New York with congratulations of Abyssinia on the victory of the allied and associated nations in the war. an announcement by the State Depart ment said. The mission has already Mrs. Truman H. Newberry, wife of the new Senator from Michi gan. She has gone to Watch Hill for the summer. 'extended similar congratulations to the other governments. i Another interesting visitor will be ;the Countess Nada Torby. one of the most beautiful women in England, who j is expected to visit America soon, ac cording to a report from London. : Countess Nada Torby is the daughter of the famous Countess Torby. who became the morganatic wife of Grand iDuke Michael of Russia, who was ex iled by the Czar. The mother was the morganatic daughter of Prince Nicho las of Nassau by his union with the daughter of the great Polish patriot, 'Pushkine. , | One realized, in spite of the large number who have gone a^ray, how many really had remained' at home I when they saw the crowds at the celebrations on Friday last. FORTY-THREE NATIONS I3f THE ( ELEBRATIOX. Forty-three nations participated in' the celebration of peace here Friday under the auspices of the j W ar Camp Community Service, i their representatives including am bassadors and other members of the embassy and legation staffs. A dumber of the diplomats, notably the Japanese charge d'affaires and the Danish minister, entertained in formally for those taking part in their respective features in the pageant. Delay in signing the peace not only prevented the personal atten dance of the President, but also de stroyed the expectation that Mar shal Koch might visit the United States for the Fourth. Marshal Foch. Gen. Pershing. Field Marshal llaig, of Great Britain, and other actors in the war, were asked to send greetings to America on this occasion. Crowds similar to inaugural though were to be seen in Wash ington. Maj. Raymond Pullman, Superintendent of the Metropolitan Police, made elaborate preparations to handle them. A feature of the parade were fifteen bands and a chorus of 15,0^0 voices ?r sang a hymn of joy over the return of peace. Among the forty-three nations that participated in the exercises was Russia and it was significant that the representation was that of a government that no longer exists. Different nations which for the first time in their history partici pating in a national birthday cele bration, were: France, Brazil, Spain, Italy, Mex ico, Russia, Great Britain, Japan. Chili. Argentina, Peru, Portugal, Polivia, Norway, Guatemala, Swed en,* Denmark, Cuba. Venezuela, China, Panama, Ecuador, Belgium, Colombia, Switzerland. Greece, Hon duras, Ntaaram Montenegro. Para guay, Uruguay, Netherlands, Serb*, Croats and Slovenes, Hayti. Salva dor, Rumania, Persia, Poland, Llthunia Csecho-Sslovsltia, Finland. Before Congi^wa adjourned they con firmed the appointment of Hugh Gib son as minister to Poland, one of the appointments that, they have delayed in sett line- Another is that of Ben ton McMillin which will have to wait until Congress convenes again on July 8. The American Society of Peru has initiated a movement to have Benton McMillin. the American min ister. retained there as ambassador. (Minister McMillin recently was nomi nated by President Wilson to be min ister to Guatemala. The society, com posed of Americans throughout the Peruvian republic, at a meeting last week unanimously authorised its board of managers to send this cable gram to President Wilson: "The American Society of Peru sin cerely regrets the possible loss of Benton McMillin as American minis ter and wishes to inform the Presi dent of the United States that Mr. McMillin's appointment as ambassa dor here will be most gratifying to members of this society." Peruvian newspspers have indorsed the suggestion. CHARLES J. VOPICKA TO WRITE EXPERIENCES. Tou will be interested to know, I am sure, that Charles J. Vopicka. of Chicago. American Minister to Ru mania. has arrived in Paris from Bu charest on his way to the United States, where he intends to spend sev eral months' vacation. A* Minister jointly to Rumania, Bulgaria and Serbia and representa tive of the various allied interests In Bulgaria. Mr. Vopicka has had many remarkable war experiences which he later expects to condense Into a book of memoirs. For the present,, how ever, owing to the violent political contentions now rending eastern En rope, he prefers not to make a state ment until he has conferred with President Wilson. He speaks Ave languages, and says that It would have been impossible for him to carry on his work without ihem. particularly French, which is spoken by nearly every well educated person in eastern Europe. It is his opinion that the United States will no longer be able to have one Minister accredited to the three countries, but that we must be rep resented by a Minister in each. It Is an interesting rumor that Capt. Walter R. Gherardi, commander of the battleship New Jersey, will be the first United States representative in Berlin when diplomatic relations with Germany are resumed. Capt. Ghe rardi was naval attache at Berlin from 19^3 until the outbreak of the war. It was said at the State Depart ment that before an Ambassador to Germany is named the American Em bassy in Berlin will be opened with a chsrsre d'affaires at head of i?, and possibly with army and navy attaches. The State Department would not con firm the report that Capt. Gherardi will be appointed charge d'affaires. I know Mrs. Gherardi would Just love it. She was so delighted. I re call, when her husband was ap pointed naval attache at Berlin, which was then one of the most j interesting capitals of the world. But they were doomed to disap pointment and saw practically noth ing of the social life there because the war broke out before they had been there a year. They are both now in Newport where the captain is on duty. They were stationed in Washington for a long time: were on duty here at the time of his ap pointment to Germany, in fact. I remember Mrs. Gherardi particular ly at the navy roller-skating club that used to meet once a week at the Arcade in the days when roller skating was so fashionable. That club was a very exclusive affair and lots of fun. The members leased I the whole rink for every Wednes j day afternoon. I think it was.
