AS TO ENGLAND
Substance of Suppressed In
PREDICTS WAR WITH JAPAN
London. Nov. 20.-The substance ot
the suppressed Interview with Emper
or William of Germany obtained by
Dr. William Bayard Hale for the Cen
tury Magaslne, New York, has been
made public here.
The Interview with bis majesty wai
obtained by Dr. Hale on board the Im
perial yacht Hobenaollern at Bergen,
Norway, but Its publication was stop
ped on an intimation .from the Germaa
government that such a course would
be most gratifying.
The emperor was bitter against Eng
land and full of "the yellow peril."
He declared England a traitor to the
white man's cause. He predicted that
she would ultimately lose some of her
colonies through her treaty with Ja
pan. His majesty said that the Invitation
to the American fleet of battleships to
visit New Zealand and Australia was
Intended to serve notice on England
that those colonies were with the
white man and not with the renegade
mother country. The British colonies
would show by the ardor of their re
ception that they understood the situ
ation. The emperor declared that Japan Is
even now fomenting Insurrection in
India. . This insurrection, he said,
might, break out within six months.
Germany and the United States would,
however, he thought, find a solution of
the eastern question, as there was a
eomplete nnderstandlng between Em
peror William and President Roose
velt on this point. He said they in
tended to divide the east against itself
by becoming the recognized friends of
China. Negotiations have been pro
gressing favorably for months.
A very high Chinese official, the em
peror said, would soon visit America
and Germany. Terms will then be
made known guaranteeing the protec
tion and integrity of China and the
Every statesman now realizes, the
emperor declared, that Russia In her
'great struggle with Japan wan really
fighting the white man's cause fight
ing It miserably.
The emperor expressed sympathy
with Russia, remarking how different
the result would have been If the bur
den of carrying the white man's stand
ard had been placed by Providence
upon his invincible battalions. If Ja
pan be suffered now to get control of
China, Europe will suffer attack
The emperor said he was keeping
friends with the Mohammedan world.
He 'was even supplying them with
rifles' because they are devils In light
and stand there between the east and
the west where they can break the
first force of attack.
Emperor William said he believed
that America would be forced to fight
Japan within ten years.
KAISER NEAR BREAKDOWN.
His Nervousness More Pronounced
Since Von Bulow Incident.
Berlin. Nov. 20. Emperor William's
moods have always been an object of
study from hour io hour by the mem
bers of his official household, and he
has een carefully, almost painfully,
watched during recent days. .
The results of these observations,
with a partial report of the emperor's
conversations, have been transmitted
to widening circles outside the court;
and the general belief Is that the em
peror Is breaking down. His nervous
ness has increased since Chancellor
von Bulow's visit.
