TARIFF WarWiih the United States TALK IN GERMANY Many Papers Censuring the Emperor FOR ACTIONS IN ENGLAND Highest Prussian Court Decides on Meat Inspection Law, By Associated Press Berlin, Feb. 9. The Anglo-German relations and their surmised modifica tions, owing to Emperor William's vis it to England, form Just now tho all engrossing topic. The decorating of Lord Roberts with the order of Black Eagle, and Emperor William's reply to King Edward's speech. In which tho Emperor said that he wo honored In wearing a British uniform and that the Emperor's army would Hkewls3 feel It an honor, has especially aroused keen criticism, which Is privately ex pressed much more freely th'dn In print. In high official circles tho decorating of Roberts, which officials do not con- iirui, is regarueu as DCing merely a. personal significance ami as expressing the Emperor's appreciation of Rob erts as a man and a soldier, and Is not looked upon as a political act and leaves Anslo-German relations pre clsely where they were 'beforo the In cident. Nevertheless It is admitted that the act expiesses the Emporor's wish to end the bitterness In the relations of the two countries. Tho Kreuse Zeitunc's comment yes terday evening Is today making the rounds of the German press. Many papers merely reproduco It without comment. The Kreuse Zeltunc said. "Wo fall to see why this Boer de stroyer (Roberts) should receive such an unique mark as the emperor's dis tinction, and also why tho Emperor, after being horribly Insulted five year-3 ago by the officers of his British regi ment, should now show them marked attention". Tho 'bitterly Anglophobe, Deutsche Tags Zeltung, the leading Agrarian or gan, says that It cannot doubt the Em peror's behavior In England is based on an Idea of closer Anglo-German friendship, which Is Intensely unpop ular with the vast majority of tho na tion. Berliner Neusto Nachrlsten (Conser vative) today reprints the Kreus Zelt ung article regarding tho Engllfc'i and German policy. Tho paper says: England Is Incapacitated from an alli ance of any sort because she Is tie mendously weakened by the South Af rican war. As a military powor she Is not worthy of serious attention. Eng land therefore will not pursue an g grosslve policy under any circum stances. An entente between England and Russia In tho near future Is more likely than not, as Russia couqutcs with the English mon ey 'market and is economically and struggle with England. Foraatlmeit Is true, tho English naval superiority re mains, and the way to German colonies can he Mocked iby English vessels. Thoreforo, on the whole, the wisest for Germany Is to leave the door onen for an Anglo-German understanding, and in thojueanwhlle llvo in peace with England. Berliner Tageblatt, an independent Liberal prints u special London cor respondence in which tho writer says that tho German people will do well to bury their animosity to Great Brltlan when tho people extend a hand of friendship, adding that Great Britain will doubtless bo ready to pursuo a friendly course. The writer continues to suy that tho German people seem about to ToJect tho friendship ot a great nation which formerly Germany earnestly wooed. Die Tageltche Rundschau, a Conservative und mildly Agrarian, says that tho Emperor I estranged from the nation by his behavior In England'and declares that too close ro approachment with Groat Britain h opposed to German Interests . Cologne Volks Zeltung weighs chances fJltli Russian or British roop nhoachmetit for norm nnv ararntivnnn. eluding, tiat the bott policy for Ger man interests In an entento with Great Britain, from a Catholic standpoint, and ru-rtlcularly also because the un derstanding with Great Brltlan moani a furtherance of more liberal political Institutions.

Kreuse Zeltung corrobarates this statementjfeaylng: "Americans are well aware that for them tho tariff war Is more difficult to support than It would be for Germany, and when they pei celve that the Germans Will not stand shilly-shallying any longer they will say, at last, that the stupid Germans begin to see their advantage." The highest Pruhslan court decided Monday, In an appeal made by a wholesale dealer at Kolmar Peneranla that it Is lawful to enforce additional Inspections of American, meats, bacon, etc.in a town where they are offered for sale, after tho first satisfactory inspec tion at the port of entry, viz, Stettin and that police regulations (bearing thereon of No ember, 1897 and the law of March, 1850, are valid. IMPROVED PROSPECTS For Continued Peace and Harmony In England. By Associated Press. London.l'Fcb. 8. A comprehensive view of the'lnternatlonal situation re veals only improved prospects for con tinued nfijifp and ihormony. From a "British stan'drolnt"een'"vlctorlS'8' death appears to hove strengthened. rather than weakened Great Britain's, position among the nations. Sufficient time has elapsed since Victoria ceased to reign for the Foreign Office to feel the political pulse of the capitals of Europe, and a hrlef examination re sulted In a feeling of satisfaction and security at Downing street. The foremost factor In this is natur ally Emperor William's attitude. Re sponsible officials here make no at tempt to conceal elation at the cir cumstances attending on his majesty's visit. They do not shut their eves to the 'dissatisfaction the Emperor caused among certain sections of his subjects, but rely Implicitly on the imperious force of Germany's rulerto successfully overcome tho International opposition engendered. The only feature ot the recent International happenings re gretted Is 'the Emperor's decoration of Field Marshal Roberts with tho order of Black Eagle. It Is thought that his majesty went almost too for. In view of tho hostile comments that the Ger man press has been In tho habit of showering on Great Britain's South African campaign. Neither In China or In other park of world do Russia and France.ln the for eign offlco's views, glvo any Indication of the contradiction against this activ ity of British diplomacy. Lord Salis bury is isald to rely on Emperor Wil liam to keep in touch and harmony with tho Czar and so long as this is feasible, 'France is not expected to take any serious lnlnlatlve. i.loreov or tho French Anglophoblsm seems to have abated since the Queen's death. Austria and Italy aro put down as suio to do nothing contrary to. Emperor Willam's wishes. It Is easily seen that Emperor Willam is now -the dominat ing figure in European affairs. To this Great Britain has no objection She made is possible and trusts to ben efit hy it. CDDAN DEDTS Repudiated, Except Those Contracted for Revolutionary Purposes. By Associated Press.

WILL BE NO FAKE But a Hard Contest He Con tinues, SITUATION IS COMPLICATED Tom Sharkey Is in Cincinnati to Challenge the Winner. By Associated Press. Cincinnati, O.. Feb. 9. The situa tion is more complicated than ever to night regarding the contests here next Friday night between .Martin and Chllds ftnd Jeffries and Ruhlln. It Is hardly possible that Judge Hol lister will he ready to render his decis ion on Tuesday morning, and if he rea ders It on Wednesday or Thursday there will be very little time for the proposed appeal to higher couits. In tho meantime, there are all sorts of rumors about) other proceedings, in cluding action against Madden and Brady for perjury, and especrally against the former. At any rate there Is much 'talk about what may yet be dono to jprovont-the fight. "Whllenhe defense denies the jurisdiction of the court ot equity to grant such injunc tion as asked for, they will proceed on appeals and possibly otherwise In case the Injunction is granted. It is reported that if the Injunction I, refiued, plaintiffs will stop their pro ceedlngs on account of the limitation of time, and leave the matter to the gov ernor. The plaintiffs have no doubt as to the outcome of the pending suits except on a point of Jurisdiction of the court of equity, and on that point tho defense expects the decision In their favor. Brady made a dramatic as well as a strong witness. He was much more Impressive than Madden was yesterday and was at times almost sensational. Madden testified that Jeffries and Ruh lln would spar with "love taps" for points. (Brady said his man would hit as h?ld as he could to retain the championship and that he had nj doubt but that Ruhlln would meet him equally vigorously. Brady said that any other kind of a performance would be a fake and an imposition on the public. Brady testified to sitting bosldo The odore Roosevelt at a contest in the Metropolitan theatre in New York. Brady testified to reserving a box for Roosevelt at another contest, but Roosevelt did not attend. Brady thought that the failure to attend was because the 'New York papers said so much about him having a box re served. Judge Harmon asked him If he thought that a man who was not afraid of a lion was afraid of newspaper talk Brady replied In the negative and paid a high tribute to Roosevelt. He con sidered Roosevelt the bravest man on earth . 'Brady proceeded ta testify to the high standing of business men and others who were present on the occas ion when ho sat near Roosevelt. He stated that he expected tho same class of people hero next Friday night. Ho testified to reserving a section in the hall for members of tho Board of Trade of Chicago, and to orders for tickets from prominent men from all over tho country. The most prominent arrivals today aro Tom Sharkey and "Spider" Kelly. Sharkey says he is hero to challenge the winner. He says he has a forfeit of $2,500 posted with Al Smith in New York to fight Jeffries. Should Ruhlln win, the check will feo as a forfeit for a meeting with hihx. Sharkey says that ho has a pronilfco from Jeffries to be the next man in the event that the champion wins. Subscribe for the Dally Leader.
