tor a man who thought the caus* of lib erty had a better chance under a Malay chief than under the American flag. The republican party, he said, proposed to go on ?with its work even though It had to proceed without the aid of the democratic *^Ir. Vest made a speech against what he called the "commercialism" of the present hour in connection with the Philippines. Mr. Flktns <W. Va.) said that the Su reme Court had determined the whole uestion of the status of the Islands. Mr. Culberson (Tex.) maintained that trad*' between the United States and the Philippines should be free and that Inde pendence should be granted the Filipinos. Mr. Lodge Deprecates Acrimony. Mr. Lodge (Mass.) referred to the acri mony of debate out of which the Incident of Saturday had frr-.wn. He said he thought it was possible to discuss the Philippine question without senators calling each other robbers, thieves and scoundrels. Mr Stewart made a speech in favor of the bill and Mr. Bacon argued against it. j Mr. McComas' Speech. Mr McComas. occupying time assigned to him for discussion of the Philippine bill, made a statement in regard to declarations uu the part of Senator Wellington last ; week In relation to promises Mr. Welling ton said the late President McKinley had made him in regard to the future holding of the Philippine Islands by the Lnltta St?tt69 "My colleague." said Mr. McComas. "has twice stated that President McKinley gave lilin assurances which induced him to vote for the treaty of Paris, which assurances were not fulfilled. My colleagues state ments vary from each other. 1 was present it the conversation my colleague had with the President concerning the treaty. Mr. McComas said that this charge was absurd and was without foundation. He read from the treaty to show that it pro vided that the civil rights and political status of the native inhabitants of the ttT ritorfes crdcd to the I nittd States should >e determined by Congress. It was for Con gress to say how the Philippines were to be governed, "it was not by the President, nor did he arrogate to himself that function in his talk with Senator Wellington and him self. ? _ lie read a portion of the message of Pres ident McKinley of December 5. 1808. in which he referred to legislation by j "re?s on the Philippine question, and in his talk with Mr. Wellington and himself had he referred to his power to dispose of the Philippine territory he is sure he would have been reminded that that power was In "ongress. Mr. Wellington Much Stirred Up. At the conclusion of Mr. McComas speech in the Senate today there were indications of a war of words between the two sena tors from Maryland. Mr. Wellington listen ed attentively while Mr. McComas was giv ing a general contradiction to Mr. ^ elling ton's statement regarding his visit to the late President McKinley. In the midst of Mr. McComas' speech Mr. Wellington en- j deavored to Interrupt him. but this was not permitted on account of the shortness of j time each senator being allotted but fifteen minutes to speak under the rule adopted for considering the Philippine bill today. As soon as Mr. McComas had taken his seat Mr. Wellington was on his feet de manding recognition. Senator Frye, who was in the chair, had a list of senators who had been accorded time to speak, and Mr. Berry of Arkansas being the next on that list proceeded with liis remarks. Mr. AN el lington attempted to interrupt him in or der to secure time for his reply to Mr. Mc Comas, but Mr. Perry suggested that he could not permit it unless it was under stood that such time as he occupied would not be taken from his own allotment. The Arkansas senator then proceeded with his remarks, while Mr. Wellington, showing signs of extreme agitation, started at a quick walk toward the desk of the presiding officer. "I must reply to this." said Mr. Welling ton. as he left his desk. When he reached Senator Frye the latter was talking to Sen ator Piatt of Conecticut, but the conversa tion was interrupted by Mr. Wellington, who made a whispered statement. Mr. Wel lington then returned to his desk and Mr. Frye placed his name on the list of sena tors who would speak this afternoon. Mr. Wellington, upon taking his seat, engaged In conversation with Senator Burrows, who sat next to him. and snook his fist vigor ously in emphasizing the remarks he was making. At times he looked over toward Mr. McComas. and tnen. rising to his feet. Stood for a minute or two in an undecided altitude. He sat down again and proceed ed to make some nates on a pad of paper, and while in the midst oi this occupation s page came in to ask him to sign a card Of admission to tne private gallery of the sennt- . Descending to tiiis very ordinary occupation of signing admission ( irds the s senator complied with me request of the page, and from that time on seemed con tent to wait until his turn should come to reply to Mr. McComas. A Vigorous Reply Expected. At - 4."? o'clock Senator Wellington ob tained the floor. When he arose to address the Senate there was an audible stir th roiichout the chamber. Senators thronged in from the cloakrooms to take their seats and the occupants of the galleries leaned forward to give closer attention. It had been generally noised about that the sena tor would reply to Mr. McComas, and it Was expected that his remarks would be vigorous. Senator Wellington said that he entered again upgn the debate with reluctance, but thai tlie junior senator from Maryland had deemed tit in his remarks today *?? make a pers> nal atta< k upon him und to endeavor to casi doubt up n the veracity of state ments lu- hail made on many occasions. Mr. Wellington declared that his colleague had given evidence that his memory was n>>t as KOi>d as his own, and that either he Was Ignorant of what was at issue in this controversy or had stated that which was tint rue. Mr. Wellington reasserted that he was not mistaken in r? gard to his recollection ol hi? intervit w with the late President .Mc Kinley. Declares Statement Untrue. "The senator (referring to Mr. McComas* said that I had received no message that the President desired to see me," said Mr. "WMMngton. "That again is untrue. I did r? ceivt? from the President of the United St.itis, through :i channel that I believed CfliiM represent him, a message that lie Wio ii be glad to see ine and talk over this m-itr. r with me. When I went to see the Pr- ? i!t ?>f the United States my colleague Was v. th rn?, but he did not hear all the COiiv< r- it inn. "As ! recollect, he was not then a sena tor. but he had been elected. When it c uu u> the conclusion of th<? interview with the President Mr. McKinley and my self were at one end of the room and he was standing at the window, where he co lid not hear wiiat we were saying. He cannot speak with knowledge upon this subject. I reassert today that the President upon that occasion did make the promises of WMoh 1 have spoken during the last whk. I reiterate what I have said on many occasions when I have addressed the people outside of the Senate in saying that I believed the President meant to carry out those promisfs when he made them, but because of sinister and malign influences he was gradually drawn away, and he did drift, drift and drift. Promises Made to AnotHer. "I do not stand nlone in this matter." as serted Mr. Wellington, as he drew himself up to his full height, and then remained motionless for a few moments. At this time the galleries were filled with peopV, and there was intense silence as the Maryland senator paused. "I ?ill go further now," he continued. "I -wMl say that the same promises that Were made to me were made to another senatof of the United States, and he Is upon the floor now " The declaration was made in an intensely tragU; loue t?f voice, while Mr. Wellington, poist d on his toes, seemed to wait as if the Ser.at r to whom he had referred might rise In his place and indorse what he said. There being no interruption he then quall f!< d the statement that the senator was at that moment on the floor by saying: Challenges Colleague Outside. "I will say, tliis In .closing." said Senator Wellington. "I desire to be within the rule* vf the 8em?te. I desire to say noth ing beyond them, nothing that will trans gress them, but 1 will say this " Ileftj the senator paused for a moment and an intense stillness reigned in the chamtfer. "I will sav."?, h? continued, "If my col league -will at-any time, outside of this chamber, sav.that whet I have said is not correct, I will tell him what I cannot sa> In this chamber?that he utters a cowardly and malicious falsehood." Ordered to His Seat. A murmur of agitation ran through the Senate. Senator Hoax arose in his place and called the senator from Maryland to order. "The senator will take hie seat," com manded the presiding officer. Senator Wellington sat down, and Sena tor Hoar said that his point or order was that the senator had transgressed parlia mentary amenities. "The chair sustains the point of order," said the presiding officer. Another minute of silence followed and then Senator Allison took the floor to speak upon the general Philippine question. THE HOUSE. | Under the rules today the House of Rep resentatives belonged to the District of Co lumbia. Before proceeding with District of Co lumbia business a bill was passed, on mo tion of Mr. Ball (Texas) to divide Texas into four judicial districts. The resolution of inquiry calling upon the Secretary of War for Information concern ing the transfer of sugar lands In Cuba since the American occupation, for which Mr. Tawney (Minn.) asked unanimous con sent a few days ago, was reported back by him from the committee on Insular affairs and adopted. The House then proceeded to the consid eration of matters pertaining to the Dis trict of Columbia. After disposing of District business the House went into committee of the whole and took up the diplomatic and consular appropriation bill. The bill carries an ap propriation of $1,931,678. an Increase of $82, '.?50 over that of last year. PRINCE HENRY'S VISIT (Continued from First Page.) beside him. Admiral Evans was the third occupant of the vehicle, sitting alone on the seat opposite to Prince Henry and the Sec retary of State. As soon as the prince and his personal escort were seated, the journey to the White House was begun. Troops F and G, of the 2d Cavalry, stationed at Fort Myer, and under command of Lieut. Col. Dlm mick formed the military escort to the prince. The military authorities, it la said, would have been pleased to make a more elaborate martial display, but as the prince must of necessity travel rapidly In his jour neys from city to city and while in the municipalities, it was deemed best that only mounted troops should form the escort. Troop F was in line at the corner of 6th street and Pennsylvania avenue, flanked along the east side of 6th street. To the left of Troop F were two companies of marines from the United States Marine barracks, and a section of field musicians, all under command of Major Doyen. Two other companies of marines, under com mand of Major Wood, and accompanied by the Lnlted States Marine Band, marched past the depot and on to the White House earlier in the morning. To the left again of the marines was Troop G of the cavalry forces, standing In company front. The cavalrymen, with the yellow lined capes of their overcoats turned back and showing full color strength in the bright morning sun, and the marines with the same effect in brilliant red, pre sented a striking martial contrast of colors and gave Prince Henry at a glance an idea of the character and uniform of the Amer ican forces. Following a platoon of mount ed police officers. Troop F at the farthest end of the line, took up the leading posi tion of the escort. Immediately behind the cavalrymen was the prince's carriage, with officers arranged at intervals on either side. The closest precautions were taken for the protection of the nation's visitor and his suite, secret service men and local detec tives being intermingled with the uni formed men at the depot and along the line of march. As the carriage in which he rode wheeled into the avenue Prince Henry got his fir.st glimpse of the national boulevard. His attention was at once called to the tower ing dome of the Capitol, and he was seen to turn and look for quite a while at the massive pile on the hill. Then his gaze swept up the avenue toward the treasury. The historic thoroughfare had been cleared of all vehicles and pedestrians. It was lined on either side by thousands of Ameri can people anxious to see the German nobleman. The cheering was heard all along the avenue. Following Prince Henry's carriage came those of his suite, the German embassy and the American representatives. They were arranged as follows: Second carriage?His Excellency the Sec retary of State for the Imperial Navy von Tirpitz, the Secretary of the Navy, Com mander Cowles. Third carriage?Adjutant General von Plessen, the assistant secretary of state, Dr. Hill; Lieut. Commander von Grumme. Fourth carriage?Vice Admiral von Eis endecher. Adjutant General Corbin, Com mander von Rebour. Fifth carriage?Vice Admiral Baron von Seckendorff, Staff Surgeon Dr. Reich, Count von Quadt. Sixth carriage?Coot re Admiral Count Baudis.-in, Captain Mueller, Lieut. Com mander von Schwindt. Seventh Carriage?Lieut. Commander von Trotha, Lieut. Commander von Egidy, IJaron von Ritter, Count Montgelas. Eighth carriage?Embassy staff. Ninth Carrlagt?Clerks, etc. Troop G of cavalry brought up the rear of the line. In Charge of Arrangements. Prior to the arrival of the train bearing Prince Henry there was a gala air of ex pectancy and preparation about the 6th street station. Mr. Colin Studds, the pas senger agent of the southeastern division of the Pennsylvania Railroad Company, and Mr. Joseph Crawford, the general agent of the company, were early on hand. Major Sylvester had assigned a large force of uni formed and plain-clothed policemen at the depot, and just before the train reached the shed the interior platforms were cleared of all persona, except those holding special permit cards from the State Department. It was under Mr. Studds' directions that the ante room In which the prince was first received was decorated in such a lavish manner, and the plans for the disposition of the train were also made by him. Major Richard Sylvester, the chief of police, was personally on hand at the depot, in uni form, to see that all was going well. Lieu tenant Moore of the sixth precinct was in Immediate command of the policemen. The lieutenants and detachments of other pre cincts were arranged along the avenue, at the \\ hlte House and on Massachusetts avenue and Highland Terrace, in front of the German embassy. Promptly at 10 o'clock 6th street. In the neighborhood of the depot, and Pennsylva nia avenue from 6th street to 17th street, were cleared of street cars, wagons and pedestrians. When the street space about the station was cleared a large force of w hite-wlnged" street cleaners were put to work, and In a few moments had the thoroughfare cleared in excellent shape. Officials Arrive at Depot. Secretary Long of the navy was?the first of the official receiving party to arrive at the depot. He drove up In his private car riage and alighted at the B street entrance. In a few seconds he was joined by Count von Quadt of the German embassy, and the two proceeded together down the long plat- j form of the station to the reception room arranged for the prince. Count vpn Quadt was attired in one of the most striking uni forms of the assemblage, a uniform which stood out prominently eren In the midst of all the sold lac* and finery brought upon the seen* with the arrival of the prince and his party. Topping tight-legged trou sers of purs white was a brilliant red cut away post, laced across with gold cords. On Count Ton Quadt's breast were a num ber of medals. His headgear was a partic ularly long-pointed chapeau. Mr. Pelrce, the third assistant secretary of state, arrived soon after Secretary Long and Count von Quadt. Mr. Pelrce and the count have had much to do with planning the details of the prince's stay In Wash ington, and much of the credit for the suo cess of the reception this morning Is due to them. Secretary Hay drove up at the side en trance of the station but a few minutes be fore the arrival of the special train. He at once repaired to the ante room and con sulted with the other members of the re ceiving party. The approach of the train was observed while It was yet some distance away. Just outside of the station the train was split up, and only the three living cars In which the party was traveling were backed Into the station. With the Prince. The suite of officers here with Prince Henry of Prussia Includes some very dis tinguished men. Vice Admiral Baron von Seckendorf was commandant of the ship Olga, on which Prince Henry cruised In the West Indies and along South America from 1882 to 1884. Secretary of the Navy Vice Admiral von Tirpitz accompanied the brother of the emperor In the summer of 1893 to the fleet maneuvers off Italy and Is with him here. Capt. von Muller, who is the department head in the emperor's naval office, was from 1895 to 1897 the personal adjutant of the prince admiral, and was later in com mand of the protected cruiser Deutsch land. the prince's flagship in eastern Asia. Prince Henry honored this officer by mak ing him a godfather at the christening of his youngest son. Henry, in March, 1900. Capt. von Muller served on the officers' corps of the Deutschland when she re turned home. The emperor conferred upon him the rank of Inherited nobility, and honored Admiral von Tirpitz and Com mander von Grumme in the same manner. Capt. von Muller and Commander von Grumme both served on board the sinking gunboat litis, the first as comander in the early nineties, and the latter as watch of ficer in the middle of the eighties. Lieut. Commander von Trotha was in the service of the prince at the east Asi atic station as flag lieutenant on board the protected cruiser Kaiser, which was the flagship of the admiral second in com mand. The youngest officer in Prince Henry's suite is Lieut. Commander von Egidy, who was for a time the personal adjutant of the prince. In the suite of the prince there are two vice admirals, three stafT officers and two lieutenant commanders, besides the offi cers' corpB on board the Hohenzollern. The band of the second marine division will ac company Prince Henry on the steamship Kronprlnz Wllhelm. The officers of the Imperial yacht Ho henzollern are Rear Admiral Count Bau dissin. Commander von Holleben, Com mander Hipper, Lieut. Commanders von der Osten and von Manthey, Lleuts. Re bensburg, Seidensticker and von Haxthau sen. and Chief Engineers Steinmeyer and Nlcolal. GREETED BY PRESIDENT. The Prince Welcomed in the Blue Room of the White House. Prince Henry's carriage entered the northeast gate of the White House amid some applause and here and there the wa\ ing of a handkerchief. Only those who had business in the White House grounds were admitted. Consequently there were not many people in the grounds, beyond the mounted and unmounted policemen, the battalion of marines, under Maj. Woods, and a host of photographers representing newspapers and magazines. The photog raphers were dancing and running in all directions trying to get a favorable mo ment for an exposure. This was somewhat difficult by reason of the prancing horses of the mounted officers surrounding the 03- rri ^ The German national hymn was played just before the carriage containing the prince entered the grounds, and the band continued this music after the carriage had driven in. Then began the booming of cannon, the national salute to the guest of the nation. This was In progress when the carriage stopped at the portico of the White House and Secretary Hay and Prince Henry alighted. Standing on the portico, waiting to re ceive the guest, were Col. Bingham, Maj. Edward McCawley and Capt. John C. Gil more. the President's aid. They saluted Prince Henry in military fashion, to which he responded. In democratic fashion Prince Henry next shook hands with these men, doing so with ease and grace. Col. Bing ham and the two aids led the way into the hallway just off the vestibule, going on into the east room, where the prince await ed the arrival of his suite. From the east room the prince, without the escort of his staff, went through the green room, where the President's party was assembled, to the blue room, where the President was waiting to receive him. A Cordial Greeting. The greeting from the chief executive of the United States was cordial, and Prince Henry's response equally pleasing. After an exchange of remarks entirely lacking in significance the President terminated the interview and escorted the prince into the red room to introduce him to Mrs. Roose velt and Mi-n Alice Roosevelt, who will christen the kaiser's yacht tomorrow. Prince Henry expressed his deep pleasure at meeting the wife and daughter of Presi dent Roosevelt. Immediately afterward the President and his wife and daughter and the visiting prince passed through the blue room into the green room, where the dis tinguished visitor was presented to the members of the President's cabinet and their ladies and others assembled. Besides the cabinet members and ladies there were present Surgeon General Rlxey and Mrs. Rixey Mrs. Theodore Bingham, Mrs. Rob ley D Evans, Miss Virginia Evans. Mrs. Pelrce, Mrs. Hill, Mrs. Cowles and Mrs. Corbin. . There was a pause of five to ten minutes in this room, after which all of those pres ent went to the east room to meet the staff of Prince Henry. There was a general In terchange of friendly and cordial expres sion among members of the two parties. The entire ceremony lasted less than half an hour, during which the prince appeared to be at perfect ease. He conversed in good English With the President and all others who talked to him, said nice things and won the good will and admiration of official Americans. The departure from the White House for the German embassy was taken shortly after 11 o'clock. The Germati ambassador, Mr. Von Holleben. left the Executive Man sion about five minutes before that. Prince Henry shook hands with Secretary Hay before getting Into the carriage to go away. He was accompanied in the ride to the em bassy by Admiral Evans. There was a lit tle heartier demonstration in the way of applause and handkerchief waving as the prince rode out of the northwest gate with his staff following him. A Return Visit. Shortly before 12 o'clock President Roose velt left the White House with Col. Bing ham, Assistant Secretary Loeb and Com mander Cowles to return the visit of Prince Her.ry. He was back at his desk and talk ing business with ordinary American poli ticians and statesmen In about twenty minutes. The decorations in the east room and the various parlors were beautiful. The deco rations for the dinner tonight were ojm pleted Saturday and gave a most pleasing effect. . No presents were exchanged during the visit to the White House and nothing is known of any Intention to do so. The President ti not contemplating the bestowal of any presents. Prior to the coming of the prince It was reported that he was'brlnging with him. as a present for the President, a magnificent hunting piece, combining a shotgun and rifle. AJT TH3 GERMAN EMBASSY. Where the Prince Will Stay While In the City. Crowd* began to jmibUi in front of the German embassy, on Highland terrace, as early as 8 o'clock./ Many persons sought places of vantage 6n the doorsteps of resi dences in th^lmmediate vicinity, while the street below was p&cked with a throng of good-natured' men, women and children, each anxious to catch a glimpse of Prince Henry when^he shbuld put in an appear ance. A half hou^ later a detachment of police began the work of clearing Massachusetts avenue and the driveway leading alongthe terrace and in front of the embassy. Wb?n the strains of a band were heard in the distance every one thought that the prince was coming and there was a craning or necks. The music heralded the approach of the Engineers' Battalion of the \\ ash lngton barracks, under the command or Col. Black. Four companies of Infantry, each soldier clad In the regulation uniform of blue coat and red cape and carrying a Slittering, bayonet-tipped musket, marched own Massachusetts avenue and came to a stop in front of the embassy. The cheered the soldiers as they boy? ? ? and continued the cheering until long after they had come to a parade rest. Booming of Cannon. The booming of cannon at the W hlte House was the official announcement of the safe arrival of the distinguished guest at the President's home, and the crowd again cheered. The guard of honor, composed of a detachment of engineers, walked up and down the pavement and, with the police men on duty there, prevented coming ^ltn" In the lines any one who did not have a duly authorised pass issued by the stale Department. . .. The first real, tangible evidence or tne prince's arrival was when three big express wagons earring his personal baggae dro\e up and the draymen began the task or un loading. The first wagon contained a Dig cloth-covered steamer trunk, '?UJ" or nv? large leather trunks, two leather bags ana a basket. The second wagon had several narrow wooden boxes. One of them was fully six feet square and was marKea "Glass, handle with care." In*betnira were a dozen or more trunks of different sizes. Each piece of baggage had a leather tag bearing the Inscription "His royal highness Prince Henry of Prussia." The baggage was unloaded at the side door of the em bassy and was carried within by servants. The typewriter on which will be written all the correspondence of the prince while in this country was taken in the front door and to his apartments. The largest box was said to contain a portrait of the fcim peror of Germany, which will be accorded the place of honor In the embassy. For the first time In this country the of ficial flag of the German emperor s family was unfurled from the mast above the em bassy. Over the front of the port cochere the German flag was draped and inter twined with laurel. From the residences adjoining were displayed both the American and German flags. * At a few minutes after 11 o clock Baron von Holleben, the German ambassador, drove up in a carriage and entered the em bassy. He was in full official dress and he came In advance to see that everything was In readiness for the proper reception of Prince Henry. Some of the crowd thought that Baron von Holleben was the prince, and there was loud cheering. Arrival of the Prince. The notes of a trumpet sounded the ap proach of Prince Henry, and a minute later a troop of United States cavalry came in sight. This was the signal for cheering, and the crowds that lined the avenue to Scott Circle shouted themselves hoarse. The bright uniforms of the mounted sol diery. the glistening sabers, the clatter of horses' hoofs on the pavement, all had a tendency to awaken the spectators to ac tion. Women waved their handkerchiefs and men their hats. At double speed the carriages conveying Prince Henry and his attendants and other distinguished guests wheeled into the drive way leading to the terrace. The prince and Hear Admiral Robley D. Evans occupied the first carriage. When the carriage reached the door of the embassy Admiral Evans alighted first and was followed by the prince. The German ambassador was the first to grasp the prince's hands and to assure him of a welcome. Karon von Hol leben then shook hands cordial.y with Ad miral Evans and they went within. Mount ed policemen were on either side of the carriage which conveyed the prince from the White House to the emoassy. In the carriages which followed were Gen eral Corbin, Count A. von Quau--Wyrkadt Isny, the counselor of the _erman legation and first secretary of the embassy; Count von Hacke, second secretary; Count von Montegelas. third secretary; Rittmeister Baron von Kap-herr, attache; Lieutenant Count von Armin, attache, and Herr Glas senapp, royal Prussian machine expert, and members of Prince Henry's suite. William Loeb, one of the President's private sec retaries, was also among the arrivals. While the carriages were unloading the bpnd played "America." Prince Henry doff ed his hat frequently as he drove up the roadway leading to the terrace, and he seemed to appreciate sincerely the atten tion bestowed upon him .jy ie people of tne national capital. The bracing air of the morning had brought color to his cheeks and he looked every inch the great naval officer that he is. in honor of ...ie prince the band played "Die Wacht am Rhine," and many in the crowd joined in singing the German national hymn. The President's Call. The crowd still lingered about the em bassy awaiting the arrival of President Roosevelt to return the call of the prince at the White House. General Corbin came out of the embassy and drove hurriedly away in the direction of the White House. A few minutes later ttie President's car riage wheeled about Scott circle and into Massachusetts avenue. The President wore a Bilk hat and a dark, tight-fitting overcoat that showed his form to good advantage. The cheers that greet ed the President were of greater volume than those that greeted Prince Henry. The President raised his hat repeatedly and bowed pleasantly in response. Baron von Holleben was at the door to greet President Roosevelt, who shook hands with a number of persons who were stand ing near, including Count ? Quadt. Col. Bingham, commissioner of public buildings and grounds, accompanied the President, and there were mounted poiicemt n on either side of the carriage. The President removed his topcoat in the hallway and in plain view of the coterie of newspaper men who were gathered about the entrance, and was then escorted to the prince's apartments. Within the Embassy. Once within the German embassy his im perial highness was Indeed at home, for in diplomatic parlance this was the same as the native soli of the fatherland. The first brief salutations now gave way to a generous German welcome. The prince was escorted up the main stairway to the spa cious reception room, used as a ball room. Here, from the west wall, looked down the life-size oil portrait of Emperor William in massive gold frame, topped with the im perial crown. ' The emperor is pictured in the full uniform of the Garde du Corps, with sword and top ;bootS, his left hand holding the heavy helihet surmounted by the Ger man eagle- Alongside hung the portrait of the empress, in ball -dress, with diadem on her head. At" every hand the German colors gave a fliendly welcome to the im perial guest. As the prince entered the chamber he faced S;silken banner of red, white and black, linking together the por traits of the emperor and empress. Not only were the' imperial colors here, but every state in Germany joined in the wel come. each by .a, silksn flag?Prussia in red and black, Baden in red and yellow, Hes sen in white and blue, and thus through out the states, each having its own flag. The prince and hls'-party laid aside their wraps, and the>-cr?nfbsion of arrival gave way to the calm dignity with which affairs about the prlntfe are?iconducted. Although there was no escesSfve formality, yet at all times there was that deference due a mem ber of the imperial family. The entire first floor of the embassy had been placed at the disposal of the prince and his personal staff, and soon the drawing room, the Japanese room, the smoking room and the ambassa dor's study had their groups of guests and officials. Throughout the brilliant throng there was no one without a uniform, and this mad? the assemblage singularly differ ent frtrm a black-coated American gather ing. Prince Henry had as his private study the Japanese room, with its rich oriental furnishings and curios, even the walls showing HiaractertsUc Japanese storks. The ambassador's office' also was at his disposal when Occasion required, Within tikis apart ment, with its riehiy Carved black oak fur niture; one might feel-that he was in the halls of some old viking, for all about on har^r^f hung ancient swords and scab aSt..?**"7* and bows' taU tankards. cro^SE? and *?Phies of the chase.

There was no exchange of formal addresses during the visit, which was strictly out of official eti quette, although It gave opportunity for ex pressions of mutual cordiality and good will between the two nations. District Commissioners Call. Following the call of the President came that of the Commissioners of the District of Columbia, who called to extend to the prince the welcome of the city of Wash ington. The Commissioners were escorted upstairs by a member of the German legation and were formally Introduced to the prince. Ho cordially shook hands with each of the Commissioners and listened attentively to Commissioner Macfarland's brief address of welcome. Mr. Macfarland's Speech. "Your Royal Highness: "The Commissioners of the District of Co lumbia have the honor to offer the hearty greetings of the government and the peo ple of the national capital. Drawn origi nally from every state and territory, the citizens of the District of Columbia repre eent in hospitality all the citizens of the republic. We have Just celebrated the one ? ii seventieth anniversary of the birth of George Washington, 'the father of ^untry the founder of the District of Columbia, whose name is borne by the city * Planned, the seat of the govern i L,nl'ed States. We remember that in his mighty endeavors he had the of the best of Germany and the ^ 2 Frederick the Great, and that he drew his great qualities largely ficm the Teuton stock.

" In reply Prince Henry said that he erent hv ai?preciated the welcome extended to him !h ? People of the United States and bv the District of Columbia, He said that he SVofry^d "l?bVhe sage of good will from the kaiser to the ?nd ^fnth* nd pe?ple ?f the United States.

Calls on Ambassadors. Prince Henry now prepared to make calls upon the foreign ambassadors sta tioned in Washington, as the high rank of an ambassador makes him a personal representative of his sovereign or ruler and entitles him to the first call. The prince was accompanied by the German ambassador, the two driving in an open landeau. As the prince came into view the crowd gave him an ovation of cheers Ahead of the carriage galloped the escort of cavalry troopers. The drive took the fhl ? throughout the northwest section of the city, where crowds lined the streets. I he princes first call was at the British embassy, Lord Pauncefote being the dean of the diplomatic corps. The prince d d card?nter the embassy' simply leaving his Calls were then made on the French am bassador. M. Cambon; Russian ambassa dor, <~ount Cassinl; the Italian ambassador dor" Sen J7>r' ,and th? Mexican ambassa dor.

Returning to the German embassy at 1 o clock Prince Henry and his party took luni h with the German ambassador and the members of his staff. The partv at the table numbered twenty-two. Prince Henry occupied the seat of honor, with Dr \on Holleben sitting oi)posite. Tiie lunch was confined to the prince's party and the ambassador s official staff, no American guests being present except the Officers forming the honorary escort. MANY AT THE CAPITOL. ^Galleries of the House Crowded With Expectant Visitors. Although the visit of Prince Henry to th? Capitol was not to occur until 4 o'clock, there were crowds in the galleries when the House of Representatives convened at noon. No special program had been arranged for the day. Reference to Prince Henry's visit was made ln the prayer which opened the ses sion of the House. The blind chaplain, after expressing thanks that republics were not ungrateful, but remembered her Illus trious sons, as was demonstrated ln the encomiums to Washington Saturday, prayed: "We thank Thee, too, that we can lay aside whatever prejudice we have toward other forms of government and extend cor dially a friendly greeting to the repre sentative of a sister nation and welcome him to our hospitable shores. We pray that the friendly relations which have always existed between this country and Germany may always continue; that the distinguished visitor may return safely to his people and that the recollections of that visit ever be a pleasant memory." SLOW BUN TO BALTIMORE. No Desire to Make Fast Time on Prince's Train. BALTIMORE. February 24.?The train which Is bearing Prince Henry of Prussia to the national capital made ah exceeding ly slow run from Jersey City to Baltimore, but there was no desire to make time with It. The train left Jersey City at 1 o'clock, and it was arranged to so time Its run that It would not reach Washington until 10 o'clock. The prince retired shortly after the special began Its journey across the state of New Jersey and It was after 7 o'clock when he arose. He breakfasted at 8 in his private car Columbia. He said that he found himself very com fortable in his car and train and thanked the President's delegates and the railway officials for the arrangements made for his transportation. He expressed a desire to ride in an engine at some time during the journey through the country, and it was arranged that he should do so somewhere ln the mountains of Pennsylvania at the outset of his southern tour later .this Keek. There were no demonstrations Airing night run of the train. The start was made so late that there were no crowds any whera. In Maryland during the early hours of the morning small crowds gathered a"t the stations, but no stops were made. Bri6f Stop in Baltimore. The prince's stay In Baltimore was nec essarily very brief. The train arrived at 9 o'clock and was met at Union station by the mayor of Baltimore and an escort of twenty-four prominent citizens. Two hun dred members of the various German sing ing societies were also admitted to the sta tion, but none of the big crowd which con gregated in the streets was allowed to ap porach the special train. Prince Henry came out of his apartment In the rear c&r of the long train and Mayor Hayes was presented to him as he stood upon the rear platform by Mr. von Lingen, the German consul here. The mayor said: "It is my duty and pleasure to extend to you. In behalf of the people of Balti more, a cordial and sincere welcome. We have here a city which bears the name of an English lord, and which contains a number of the best people in the world. Of these a large proportion are of German birth or parentage, but while they retain all their love for the 'fatherland.' they are none the less loyal citizens of their adopted country. We have always held in the high est respect your illustrious father, your queenly mother and that noble woman, your grandmother, who embodied In her self all the attributes that go to make up the perfect woman." Resolutions of Welcome. The mayor thep presented an engrossed copy of the resolutions of welcome, which have been adopted by the city council, and the prince, accepting it, replied: "I thank you heartily, sir, for your cordial welcome and kind words, and beg that you will say to the people of Baltimore, for me, that I thank them too, with all my heart." The chorus of singers then rendered sev eral German patriotic and national airs, and after a stay of twenty minutes the train pulled out amid the cheers of the crowds which lined the bridges over the tracks. Prince Narrowly Misses a Wreck. PHILADELPHIA, February 24,-The Pennsylvania railroad special bearing Prince Henry had just passed a curve about a quarter of a mile east of Bristol, Pa., this morning, when a train known as the extra freight, which left Trenton at 3 o'clock, jumped the track and was badly wrecked. Cars were strewn over four other tracks and traffic was delayed for four hours. CORONATION COMPLEXIONS. English Aristocrats Employ Experts to Make Them Beautiful. From Reynold's Newspaper. The coming coronation festivities are be ing eagerly looked forward to by women of all ages who move in what is known as the "smart set." It is anticipated that there will be a tremendous Influx of wealthy Americans and "distinguished foreigners," and members of our aristocracy who are blessed with marriageable daughters re gard the forthcoming ceremony In the light of a huge marriage fair, in which, owing to the multitude of buyers, they hope to obtain high prices for their wares. In consequence, every possible means to enhance their own and their daughters' beauty is being employed by the female srions of "our old nobUity." A walk through the West End thoroughfares or a glance at the advertisement columns of the society journals will reveal that a large number of professional beauty doctors have come over from the United States and France for the purpose of replenishing their purses by adding to, or pretending to add to, existing charms or by restoring those that are faded and gone. These practitioners can only be consulted by very wealthy women, as the meanest of them would scorn a fee of less than five guineas for advice and treatment. Six months' treatment usually costs ?500. Van ity Is always prepared to pay a large fee. They occupy, as a rule, flats in aristo cratic streets?in Belgravia and Mayfalr? which are furnished sumptuously and fitted up with curious and expensive electric ma chines. These people?mostly impostors boast that, with the scientific methods at their command, they can make any woman of fifty-five, or even older, appear as young and good looking as the average well preserved woman of thirty, providing they submit themselves to their treatment for six months or eo. At present, it is no ex aggeration to state, that their rooms are crowded with peeresses and their daugh ters. who are paying enormous blackmail and are submitting cheerfully to. opera tions which remind one of the tortures of the Spanish inquisition. American Products Everywhere. From Seribner's Magazine. Bread is baked in Palestine from flour made in Minneapolis. American windmills are working" east of the Jordan and in the land of Bashan. Phonographs are making a conquest of all tongues. The chrysanthe mum banner of Japan floats from the pal ace of the mikado on a flag staff cut from a Washington forest, as does the banner of St George from Windsor Castle. The American typesetting machines are used by foreign newspapers, and our cash reg isters keep accounts for scores of nations America makes sewing machines tor the world. Our bicycles are standards of ex cellence everywhere. Our typewriters are winning their way wherever a written lan gunge is used. In all kinds of electrical appliances we have become the foremost producer. In many European cities Amer ican dynamos light streets and operate rail ways. Much of the machinery that is to pelectrify London tram lines Is nom being built in Pittsburg. The American shoe has captured the favor of all Europe, and th<> foreign markets are hastening to import ou.' machinery that they may compete with our makers, in the far east, in the capi tal of Corea, the hermit nation, there was recently inaugurattd. with noisy music and living banners, an electric railway built of American material, by a San Francisco en gineer, and now it is operated by American moturmen. "I am at the door," said the wolf, in a loud voice, "and I am coming in." "All right," responded the meek man, "but you had better wipe your feet on the mat before my wife catches you."?Philadelphia Record. Washington Stock Exchange.

Stocks Were Strong in Spite of Adverse News. COALERS WERE STRONG TENNESSEE COAL AND IRON FEA TURE OF THE DAT. Belief That the Paciflcs' Merger Will Eventually Be Carried Out? General Markets. Special DIspatrh to The Frenlng Star. NEW YORK, February 24.?In aplte of the fact that last week's storm rendered communication with out-of-town corr^ spondents difficult, and, in some instances, impossible, today's stock market was dis tinctly firm in tone. The various pools and syndicates had arranged over the double holiday to take care of their specialties and some rather aggressive buying was re corded. The shock given the market by the threatens litigation on the subject of the Northern Securities merger has spent Its force for the moment. The matter Is to bo hurried along to some definite conclusion, and the parties In interest seem to be more hopeful than they were last week. Impor tant conferences have been in progress for several days and a plan of action is thought to have been tentatively agreed upon. Tho decision in the Supremo Court today denying jurisdiction in the Minnesota ca.so had a suggestion which indicated the possi bility of a more successful attempt should the offending railroads be made parties to the suit. The delay suggested was received as a favorable factor, however, and tho street is likely to limit Its concern to tho case to be tried under the anti-trust law. The pool buying in Tennessee Coal and Iron which was the feature of the market on the day preceding the announcement ot the government's intention to test the Shuman anti-trust law developed new ag gressiveness today and carried the price, to its highest level. The buying was credited to strong interests and was remarkable principally because of the official denials of nearly all the rumors which were re sponsible for the original rise. A good demand for Colorado Southern la sues was recorded, all three stocks gaining in value under the vigorous insiie d- mau l. Earnings are good and there Is a fair pros pect for getting a fair offer for the control of the road. The Gould shares were sup ported and there was good buying reported in the lower-priced members of the group. Southern Pacific was strong under pool support, and it is hinted that the original plans are to be carried out in this stock in spite of the unsettled condition r? the general market. The c?al stocks weje firm and a good de mand was noted during the afternoon in the Reading issues. Erie was weak during the morning, but rallied later in the day under the covering of short contracts. The coal shares are in position to be taken up in spite of the halting tendency elsewhere. Th?- Steel stocks. Smelters and numerous less active members of the tpdustrtsl group were steady under mixed buying. The strength of today's market encour ages confidence in the ability of the lead ing interests to protect the situation from attacks by the depressing party. While sur face indications preclude any pronounced upward movement of more than transitory character, there is splendid organization to waid off disastrous selling. New York Stock Market.
