First Time. .COUNTESS AN AMERICAN Count, Feels That He Can Depend oil United States to Decide Inlcriiu. tional Questions W it lu ut Prejudice. New York, Dec. 21. Count Von I'.ernstoi'ff, the German ambassador to the United States, with the countess and their daughter, arrived to-day by the UiimhurB-Ainerlcaii liner Ainer IKa. This Is the ambassador's first visit to America while Countess Von Hern storff, although born In New York, had, not been here for twenly-fivp years. The ambassador looks forward with extreme Interest to his work In WashlnRton and has prepared for It by much study. "Thanks 1o the confidence of the emperor and the Imperial govern ment," said Count Bernstorff. "1 am Intrusted with the ditllcult responsi bility of sueceedinc; Baron Kternhiirg who In representing my country so well In America had the Rood fortune also to win the confidence of the gov ernment and people of the United States. The successor of Baron Stern burs must feel diffident In undertaking- the work he had carried forward. ! Although 1 feel a certain hesitation I In approaches this work yet I also I feel the exceptional trust that has i been Riven me and the clear road ! ahead in the pood will existing be I tween our Kovern merits and peoples. I "My deep desire is to promote this I mutual Rood will and I know no j other way of dolus so except by open ! nes and complete Rood faith. hlle j I am in Washington there will be no 1 mystery about German alms in all that i relates to the United States. I "It l.s needless to sa that T conie J to this 'country with the srent' St pleasure and Interest. My stay in American will afford nie t ie occasion of closely following the ama:'.inR pro gress of the American people in every branch of public life a procivs-s ' which commands the admiration of j the whole worlcj." I SpenkiriR of the general disposition I of Americans toward Kuropean affairs i Count Bernstorff said; "My compatriots have the convic tion that the government tin I tlv j people of t!ie t'r.itcd States jinl"," for themselves the situations la.it i arise In Kurope upon their merits and ! witirmt prejulice, an 1 we can well tro.st ourselves to such impartial i judgment. Thus the ties between the United States and Germany are iiap piiv free to develop Upon common ideals and political fair play. Thi! , th's should remain so w ill be the ob ject 1 hope to nttiln 011 the ground of 1 my Instructions and of my own enrn- ! eft desire. I "The new postal convention." Count j BeniHtortV s.'ihl. "has ie,-u ;;;vi-t I with great sat is fact ion in Germanx. and Wo hope that it will s.-rve to crease f ie friendly Inter. o;i:'.-e be tween tile two p' fiples." Tue Anieril.a having arrived late iri 'the afternoon Count llrlnsMil'f .1. -elded to retrain over 1 1 i 14 : ) t in New i York and proceed to Washington to morrow. WARSHIP MAINE ON DARK ERRAND Destination of Battleship Sail ing from Norfolk Under Seal ed Orders Believed to Be Venezuela. GOVERNMENT IS TOTTLING Hcur-Atlmirnl Arnold In Charge- of the Vrwol Washington Says the Ship lias (,011c "on a Cruise." Washington, Dec. J1. Coin))leie I mystery, sn far as any olllciul adinif I Hlon can I"' olitaitied, Mtrrounds Cic ! destination of the battleship Malm-, ! which L-rt. Norfolk to-day under eal I ed orders. j Neither th stiile nor the navy dr- partment olllcials will make any stat'' i ment on the subject any nioiv tmri to pay that iho vessel has irone "on ,1 ! (tiiInc." They will not cb-ny or af firm rumors that vveri- (iirrnt to-day I that th" ship is bound for any duty : at or In the vic-lnity of Venezuelan j v.-aterx. The American Roverninciit is ! without any naval representation in that Immediate section and should an outbreak against the existltiK Rovern i ment occur such American Interests ! as may exist in the ports of La (iualrii. ' Porto Cahelln and Mararalbo would v fl fl'c fl ( t 990 CHAPEL ST., have to appeal to the navies of foreisn nations for help. Jt ha.s been the belief of the slate department that the feeling manifest ed In such a forceful manner In Ca raca last week would develop Into something more serious, resulting hi the formation of a government with a new president at its head. In such case It would be desirable to have ut hand a war vessel for any duty that she might be called upon to perforin, Because of t.ie distance of Curacao from Venezuela the state department Is without communication even with Its consuls in Venezuela, it having no diplomatic representation, except aft er .considerable delay and this is con sidered unfortunate. Sinco the Maine Is equipped with wireless telegraphy this affords a ready means of communication with tap, United States, if necessary. The Maine Is In command of Rear Admir al Conway.il. Arnold, formerly on special duty at the naval war college, who is regarded as specially capable of handling any situation that may arise. Admiral Arnold was In Wash ington on Saturday In conference with the naval ofllclals, and this, It Is un derstood, was followed by a talk last night between Secretary Hoot and Secretary Newbury. FKFXCII ClUISKK DM PARTS, Admiral Aube Leaves Si. Pierre A Tier Quieting School Disturbance. St. Pierre, Mii.. Dec. 21. T'c French cruiser Admiral Aube sailed for New York, where she will receive definite Instructions from the French government as to her movements in search of the overdue steamer Neus trla. The steamer N'eustrU, which be longs to the Cyprian Fabre company of Marseilles, left New York October "7 for Marseilles, and It was announc ed from Paris several days nK" that the Admiral Aube would be sent in I search of her. The cruiser, which brought the new j governor of Miituelon here from Paris, and which lias remained pending a settlemi nt of the school question, did not leave any garrison here when she sailed to-day. The French govern m. nt has not yet announced Its de cision as to whether the schools taught by lav.nen of the Catholic faith shall be permitted to remain open.
