Close Student His Temper, Outbursts Were Fw. (Review the Reflections and Reaii niiixncos of Otto, Princ-o von Bis marck. ) W'c art' told that from the moment when he- began to exerci.se the func tion of Recent the Prince of Prussia, afterward Emperor William I., felt so keenly thx want of a proper business education that he shunned no labor by day or night in order to make good the deficiency. When he was' transac ting public affairs he really worked se riously and conscientiously. He read all papers which were sent in to him. not merely those which attracted him. and he studied treaties and laws so that he might form an independent judg ment. He knew no pleasure which would take away time from affairs of State. He never read novels or other books wnich did not concern his duties as a ruler. He did not smoke or play cards. His only recreation was. afn?r a hard day's work, to sit in his box at the theatre; but even there Bismarck, as Minister, was allowed to seek him out for pressing nusiness, and make re ports to him in the small room behind the 'box and receive his signature. The ex-Ciianeellor recalls that "I never saw the slightest touch of annoyance when. in difficult circumstances, I had to wake him up at 2 or 3 o'clock in the morning to ask for a hasty decision." We learn further that, besides the dili gence to which he was impelled by his strong sense of duty, the Emperor Wil liam I. was helped in fulfilling the ob ligations of a ruler by an unwonted measure of clear and healthy under standing, a common sense which was not dependent on acquired knowledge nor limited by it. He was hindered, however, in comprehending affairs by the tenacity with whic'h he clung to princely, military and local traditions; it was always difficult for him to give them up, or to turn into new paths when the course of circumstances made it necessary. Such a change of direc tion was apt to appear to him in the light of something impermissible or undignified. He clung firmly to im pressions and convictions, just as lie did to the persons by whom he -was surrounded and to the things he used; The remembrance of what his father had done in similar cases or would have done always had much influence on 'him; especially during the French war did he have always before his eyes the remembrance of a parallel course in the war tor liberation. It is evident that Bismarck regarded William I. with respect, sympathy and affection. On page 316 he testifies that "he was governed by the feeling of jui.ice not only toward his friends and ervants, but also in struggles against his onnonents. He was a gentleman. expressed in terms of a king, a noble man in the first sense of the word. who never felt himself dispensed from the nrincinle noblesse oblige by any temntations of the power which be longed to him; his attitude, both in home and foreign policy, was always subordinated to the principles of a cavalier of the old school and to the normal highmindedness of a Prussian officer. He held fast to honor and loy alty not only toward princes, but also o his servants, even down to his valet, f. in momentary excitement, he tres passed on fine regard for royal dignity and dutv, he soon recovered and re mained 'e.verv inch a king. and. more over, a just and kindly King and an lionor-lovinc officer, whom the thought of his Prussian porte-opee kept in the right path." It is at the same time ad- mitted that the lmperor eouni ux-e temper. He did not let himself, How ever, be infected by the ill temper of any one with whom he was convers ing: he would break off the discussion in a dignified and friendly manner. n Kaahumanu Street.

Rear Admiral I);vey is at present in command ot" tin American naval forces in Asiatic waters, with headquarters at Mauila. Outbreaks like that at Versailles, when at first he refused the title of Emperor, were very rare. "If he got angry with any one to whom he was well disposed, as, for instance, with Count Roon or myself, then he was either excited by the subject itself or he had been bound beforehand by unofficial promises wnich could not be defended. Count Roon listened to explosions of this kind as a soldier at the front listens to the rebuke of a superior officer which he believes to be undeserved, but 'his nerves suffered from it. and they affected 'his physical health. I elid not experience outbreaks of anger on the part of the Emperor so often as Roon, and they never had a conta gious but rather a cooling effect on me. I i.atl thought it out for myself in this way: Any irregularities in a ruler who showed me confidence and good will to such a degree as did William I. should be for me of the nature of vis major, which it was not for me to re sist; I must look on it as I would on the weather of the sea or any natural event to which I must accommodate myself. This impression rested on my personal love for the Emperor William I., not on my general conception of the relation of a king by the grace of God to liis servants. Toward him I was not personally sensitive; he could treat me with much injustice without creating feelings of indignation in one. The feeling that I had been insulted was one which I had toward him as little as I should have had in my fa ther's house. This did not prevent me from being led into a passive opposi tion to him by the nervous excitement whic'h was engendered by uninterrupt ed struggles when I found him lacking in understanding in political matters and interests, or prejudiced against them by the Empress or iby religious or Masonic court intrigues." Bismarck adds that "now, in thinking over this quietly, I disapprove of this passive opposition and regret it as in remem bering points of disagreement one has similar feelings after the death of one's father.."
