and farmers say the snow insures a big
crop at Present concerning tho actual status of
tho negotiations which have been begun
with Great Britain about tho matter
Appropriate steps hao been taken of
which Ocrraany must await tho receipt
Tho matter is regarded by Germany as
of the utmost importance becauso ser
iously Involving tho rights of neutrals
This afternoon the foreign secretary
Count Von Bulow conferred st tho ior
elgn offlco with his official advisers and
then reported to tho emperor A cabinet
meeting will consider tho seizure It Is
Slso reported In government circles that
tho British right of search Is questioned
and that in any event tho British rTght
to stop passengers whether they intend
to light for tho Beers or not is strenu
ously disputed as the vessels upon which
thoy were Is neutral and the territory
to which they wero proceeding namely
Delagoa Bay Is also neutral Kedrcss
It Is asserted will bo Insisted upon by
Germany
Tho Oerman press today unanimously
condemns British action In the Bupdes
rath seizure which Is characterised as
an Instance ot gross Insolence and a < i
calculated again to illustrate tho need
of a powerful German navy to render
such ombcarance on tho part of England
Impossible In tho futurt
Tho National Zeltung strongly argues
that England had no right to Interfere
with the Bundcsrath and expresses tno
hopo that she has not adopted a flexible
theory regarding contraband
Tha Lckal Anzeigor surmises that
there must havo been a ssrlus quarrel
between the commanders of tho Bundos
rath and tho Maglclenno bofore tho latter
btflcer aver asserted his preprogatlvo
In carrying off tho steamer and ex
presses hope that GTrmany will speedily
enforce tho release ot the vessel
Even tho moderate Vosslscbe iSellung
calls tho proceeding rharaeterlstJq Eng
lish Insolence and adds that the whole
nttlvudo of the English before Doiagoo
Bay provokes a general protest
It is significant that todav the Oerman
Flottervereln distributed In Bolln 200000
copies ot a strongly irorded pamphlet
rolntlng out tho need of a strong German
navy
From a well lntarraol authority it Is
icnrned that preliminary posotlatlons
have been colog on for same time be
