THE KAISER AT BONN
MATRIGTJLATTOX OP CROWJf PRINCE
The Emperor' a Speech to the Stu
dents of the University-Other
Foreign News -
BONN. April 24. Emperor , "William and
Crown Pnnce Frederick William .arrived
here this morning to attend the Crown
Prince's matriculation 4at the university.
They drove to the Schaumberg jdace
amid the cheers of the populace and'the
ringing- of the church bells. Professor
Lavallete welcomed the Emperor and re
Terred to the years His Majesty spent at
Bonn and the brilliancy with which he
had fulfilled the bright hopes ol which he
had given promise as a youth. ThAe
strong arm of the Emperor, he said, se
cured Germany's frontiers, and the Ger
man flag waved over all the seas. Art,
science, trade and commerce flourished
under the wise protection of their genial
Emperor. Just as the Emperor, as a
student, had. won the .hearts of all, so
would the Crown Prince soon learn how
truly and warmly all hearts beat in uni
son with his.
The Crown Prince then entered his name
upon the register, and the rector grasped
his hahd'and greeted him as the youngest
member of the university, at the same
time expressing the wish that he, like
Tils father,, would unite serious duty ..with
the. buoyant spirits of youth. The reqtor
concluded with calling for Tiochs for the
Emperor, which, were vigorously given.
The Emperor shook hands with the rec
tor and greeted several other persons.
His Majesty, the Crown Prince and the
suite subsequently joined in a proces
sion to the gate of the TJniversity, and
left amid the hochs of the townspeople
and. students. . , .
At the grandlkammer given tonight in
his honor. Emperor '"William spoke as
"For you, my dear young comrades, it
is needless to dwell upon the feelings that
stir my heart upon finding myself in dear
Bonn agajn and among its students. There
unrolls before my mind's eye a splendid
and 'glittering picture, full of the sun
shine of my happy contentment, which
filled the period of my stay here. There
was Joy in my life, joy in people, young
and old; and, above all, joy in.the young
German Empire, which was then just
gathering strength. The wish that fills
my heart at the present moment, above
all else, is that, as happy a student's time
may be granted my dear son as once was
mine. And how -could that well be other
wise in this beautiful town of Bonn, so
accustomed to the doings of buoyant
youths. It is as if it were created for
them by Nature. May the Crown Prince
find here memories of bis illustrious great
grandfather, whose kindly eye lighted up
whenever the name of Bonn was men
tioned; of his grandfather, the noble
Prince Consort and life companion of that
glorified and queenly woman, who ever
strove for peaceful and friendly relations
between her people and ours, who indeed
are both of Germanic stock, and of so
many other noble friends who here pre
pared for their later careers. But, again,
Bonn lies on the Rhine, and there grow
our vines; there even the old castles and
the town speak of the past, and there is
Father Rhine, with his enchantment.
These must all influence the Crown Prince
and yourselves, and when th goblet gaily
passes and the merry song resounds, then
must your spirits, full of that happy mo
ment, rejoice as befits buoyant German
youths. May the source whence you
draw that joy be pure as the golden sap
of the vine and deep and enduring as
""When we look around the sunny Rhine
land our history Tlses before us in tan
gible form. You must rejoice at being
young Germans as you traverse the coun
try from Alx-la-Chappelle to Mayence,
that is from Charlemagne to Germany's
time of splendor under Barbarossa. But
why did all that splendor come to naught?
Because the old empire was not founded
upon a strong national basis. The uni
versal idea of the old Roman kingdom did
not permit the German Nation to develop
in the German national sense, therefore
Barbarogsa's splendor had to fade and
the existence of the old empire, had to
cease, because it was hindered by Its unl
versallsm from crystallizing into a na
tion, and it developed instead into a num
ber of strong principalities, which fur
nlshed the new groundwork for the new
structure of state. These coming into
conflict with the Emperor and the em
pire, internal peace was lost to the ever
weakening empire. Unfortunately, above
this phase of development of the German
people must be written the portentous
words of Tacitus, who knew Germany bo
well, 'Propter invldlum."
"The Princes envied the Emperors their
power as -they once did Armlnius, In spite
-of his -victory. The nobility envied the
towns which bad become rich, and the
peasantry envied the nobility. "What un
happy results and heavy misfortunes has
our dear, beautiful Germany suffered
propter Invidlum. The banks of the Rhine
can tell you something of that."
Then, turning to the task given Emperor
"William to weld the nation together, the
"The empire now stands before you. May
joy an4 gijatgrffl delight fill you and may
nrm-and manly resolve keep your hearts
aglow. "Work for Germanla. The fu
ture awaits you, and will need your
strength, not to squander in cosmopolitan
dreams or one-sided party tendencies, but
to foster the stability of nation thought
and Ideals which the -German race, by
God's grace, has been permitted to bring
forth from Boniface and Walter von Der
vogelweide to Goethe and Schiller. They
have become a light and blessing to all
mankind. They were ""universal,' but
were nevertheless in themselves strictly
Germans. We need such men now more
than ever. May you all strive to become
such men. But how shall that be pos
sible? Who shall "helpr you? Only one;
he whose name we all bear, who has borne
our sins and washed them awaj who
lived for our example and worked as we
should work. May our Lord and Savior
plant in you moral earnestness that your
Impulses may ever be purer and your
aims ever sublime. Then you will be
armed against all temptations, and. above
all, against vanity and envy. Then you
can sing and say: -"Wlr Deutschen furch
ten Gott, sonst nichts auf dleser Welt'
(Wo Germans fear God, but nothing else
In the world.) Then we shall endure in
the world, strong, spreading civilization,
and I shall close my eyes in peace. If I
see such a generation growing up and
rallied around my son, then, 'Deutsch
land, Deutschland, ueber alles.' (Ger
many, Germany, above all.) In this as
surance I cry: 'Long live the University
of Bonn.' "
The toast was drunk amid prolonged ap
plause. PASSED ITS SECOND READING.

Slave Trade Broken Up.
LONDON, April 2A Brigadier-General
Sir Frederick Ludgard, high" commission!
er and Commander-in-Chief of Northern
Nigeria, and Colonel G. V. Kemball, with
a force of West African frontier troops,
have, completed a successful campaign
against the powerful slave-raiding Emirs
of BIda and Kontagora, in Northern Ni
geria. The British defeated the Emir of
Kontagora after heavy fighting, 5000 na--tlves
'frequently charging the British
square. The British captured the capi
tals of 6oth Blda and Kontagora and re
leased thousands of slaves. The Emirs
liave been the terror of the country for
years, killing thousands of natives during
the past year. They are now entirely
powerless and this was brought about
without the af-sistance of white troops.

and other diseases. Hundreds of these
animals are said to have died on the
way to the Cape, while many on their
arrival have had to be destroyed. The
government has advised the British
agents In Texas and elsewhere to take
some precautions, and it is hoped that
the United States, authorities will also
take measures." The Daily Chronicle re
fers to the report as "Incredible."
NEW ORLEANS, April 24. The London

Boer sympathizers or muleteers, had in

of the story before. They added they do
not believe there is anything in it.

OBJECTED TO HIS FAMILY
MOTIVE OF THE MURDER AT CHAR
Brlere, "Who Wanted to Morrr
"Widow, Was Rejected on Account
of His Children. '
CHARTRES, France, April 24. The
bodies of the five murdered children of
the farmer, Brlere, who were killed April
24, were Interred this afternoon In a com
mon grave. The bishop of Chartres, the
municipal officers, the entire population
of the village" where the crime was com
mitted, and numbers of strangers fol
lowed the- biers- Brlere, who claimed the
murders were committed by two tramps,
but who Is suspected of having slain the
children himself in a flt of drunken mad
ness,' has not" yet confesse'd,but the au
thorities are satisfied that he Is the mur
derer. One of the most conclusive evi
dences of his guilt was discovered by
pure accident He planned and carried
out the crime in the most cold-blooded
manner and upset the furniture to con
vey the idea that the alleged murderers
had ransacked the house for booty, but
in overturning a drawer he overturned
a bottle of ink and the -doctor in dress
ing his wounds found his finger tips
stained with ink. The motive of the mur
der appears to be that Brlerewanted to
marry a wjdow who had rejected him on
account of his large family. The crime
has caused a tremendous sensation
thioughout France. "
TREATMENT OF CAPE DUTCH.
Afrikander Protests Against British
LONDON, April 24. J. X. Merrlman,
ex-Treasurer of Cape Colony, and now a
representative of the Afrlkanderbund In
England, speaking at a meeting of the
League of Liberals today against aggres
sion and militarism, said military law, the
abnegation of all law, was established In
Cape Colony. The newspapers had not
heard of the treachery and espionage go
ing on. Respectable people were com
mitted upon the evidence of natives alone.
They were brought up and fined for harm
less observations, called seditious, and
the town guards harried them. These
things created greater Irritation and In
dignation than actual violence. The
press was deliberately stopped and four
editors had been sent to jail. The fruits
of' this policy would be bitter as the
memory of these Insults burned lri the
hearts of the people. Mr. Merrlman de
tailed Instances of punishment of the
Dutch under military law, and said this
policy, If persisted In, would surely -lose
South Africa to the British Empire. The
only thing that could save It was recog
nition that the people wanted self-government
and were determined to have It.
J. W. Mauer, the ex-commlssloner of
the public works of Cape Colony, said
tho camps in which the Boer women and
children were kept were guarded by sen
tries with' loaded rifles and fixed bayonets.
Resolutions opposing annexation and
crown government were adopted.

, New York Times.
With, so many things of real moment
to worry them, It is more than a little
strange that the London papers and their
readers should find so. much time as they
do for complaining about their own adop
tion of American methods, journalistic and
other, and about their own use of wards
and phrases which they regard incorrect
ly, for the most part as "Americanisms."
We find, for instance, in the London News
a long and lugubrious paragraph, begin
ning "One effect of American journalism
out of many which surround us is the use
of $he word 'claim' In 'the sense of 'as
sert' " Then somebody, described as a
"patriotic correspondent," Is quoted ap
provingly as protesting against "this mon
strous perversion" and declaring It to be
a double crime, Inasmuch as "claim" is a
transitive verb, requiring a direct object.'
and cannot be employed In demanding for
one's self a truth about another person' or
things, as Is done In sentences like, "He
claimed that Lord Salisbury was a great
statesman." Now this argument Is neither
very clear nor very convincing, but, of
course, there really Is some excuse for
criticising the substitution of "claim" for
"assert," or "demand assent to." What,
however. Is the excuse for calling the sub
stitution an Americanism? All our diction
aries condemn it with as much severity as
it deserves, one, for example, saying that
by many it is considered inelegant, and
another that It is loose and colloquial.
Whether or not more Americans than
Englishmen extend the significance of the
word unduly is a question we would not
undertake to decide. No doubt some of
us do, and no doubt some of us do not

places they are preparing for the worst
The Weather Bureau map tonight
shows rains prevailing In the East that
may move westward into the Alleghenies
and Btart another flood In Ohio, whose
lower tributaries began rising tonight.
It is evident that the 58-foot mark which
business men and manufacturers along
the river front have been preparing for
will be exceeded by the flood tomorrow,
and losses In consequence will be much
greater than at first looked for. At 6 P.
M. the stage of the Ohio River was 57.5
feet. The present rate of rise Is only half
an Inch an hour, but this will bring the
river to the 58-foot mark by midnight,
ahd by tomorrow afternoon, the earliest
the river Is expected to become station
ary, the flood is expected to show a depth
of 58 5 feet This will drive many fami
lies from their homes along the Ohio on
the south, along Mill Creek on the west
and along the Little Miami on the east,
and will bring heavy losses to manufac
turing Arms who have prepared for but
58 feet of water. Tonight everyone In the
districts affected by the high water is
moving goods to places of safety.
On the Kentucky side the Interruption
to mills, factories and business is not
so great, but in proportion to the popu
lation many more have been driven -from
their homes than on the Ohio side. In
the Taylor bottoms, between Newport
and Louisville, Ky., the water is np to
the tree tops, and street car lines are
compelled to transfer passengers from
Bellevue to Dayton, Ky. The latter place
Is largely inundated. It is estimated that
about a square mile of Newport Is In
undated. The races at Newport track
are proceeding and will continue under
sloppy conditions. Boats are used In
reaching the track. In Covington, Ky.,
the John Brenner brewery has suffered
great loss by backwater, and some fam
ilies In that locality have Deen driven
from their homes. In the suburb of
Bromley, Ky., the Pleasant Run bridge
and the toll-gate at one end of the bridge
were swept away. The Ludlow lagoon,
a Summer resort on the Kentucky side.
Is under water. Coney Island, another
Summer resort on the Ohio side east of
Cincinnati, is also under water, as are
Chester Park and the lager beer gar
dens on the West Side.
Mayor FlelSchmann, Police Chief
Dellsch and other Cincinnati ocia!s
made another tour of the flooded dis
tricts today, arranging for any neces
sary relief and all possible protection.
Fire engines nd hose carts have been
placed on -fiatboats ready for nny emer
gency, and the police have patrol boats.
The only loss of. life reported so far ha3
bpen from accidents. One man fell off a
boat today and was drowned, and an
other off a log raft near the public land
ing. At New Richmond, O., a Summer
resort, about 50 families were driven out
of their7 homes today.
At Huntington, W. Va., the river reg
istered 47.2 feet at 6 o'clock and was still
rising and rain was falling in sheets.
The small streams are booming tonight
and It appears the crisis Is yet to come
at that place. At Ironton, O., the stage
was 58.5 feet at 6 o'clock, and a heavy
rain was falling. Over 100 families had
to moye from West Ironton today. All
merchants on Center street, the business
street in Ironton, had lo move.

LOUISVILLE, April 24. The Ohio
reached the danger line 28 feet here
tonight, and at 6 o'clock was rising an

reach 30 to 31 feet. The water has reached
the business houses at the foot of Fourth,
Fifth, Sixth and Seventh streets.
CADETS TO ANNAPOLIS.
Congressmen's Selection of Examin
ation Date Handicaps Many.
WASHINGTON, April 19. The authori
ties at the Annapolis Naval Academy have
recently called attention to a general
misunderstanding on the part of Congress
men who are appointing cadets to the
academy, which results, In many cases,
In an unnecessary hardship to the ap
pointees. In each Congressional district
where an appointment is to be made to
the Naval Academy, the department has
notified the Congressman that he should
name his candidate and alternate for the
entrance examinations to be held at An
napolis May 15 or September 1. It is left
to the members to select either of these
dates, and naturally It would be supposed
that the latter date generally would be
chosen. On the contrary, May 15 seems to
be the popular day, and most of the can
didates are being named for that date.
There Is a vast ground to be covered In
the entrance examinations, and a young
man, unless he Is fresh from colleges
where he has kept In touch with the va
ried subjects, needs considerable time to
brush up. Those examinations are Intend
ed to find out just what the respective
candidates know, and are anything but
easy, even for the cleverest of scholars.
When the early date Is selected, there
fore, the candidates have but a short
time for preparation, and this fact, as
much as anything else, accounts for a
large number of the failures, and the ulti
mate appointments of the alternates.
There Is little question but what an In
judicious selection of date of examination
works a hardship on large numbers of ca
dets who expect to enter the Naval Acad
emy. It would naturally be supposed that
members of Congress would give their ap
pointees every advantage of time, so that
they might pass their examinations with
the best possible ratings.
There is a -vacancy to be filled from the
Second Oregon District at the Naval Ac
ademy this Fall. It was Representative
Moody's Intention, when he left Washing
ton, to have his candidate examined on
the latter day, September 1. He will, as
usual, make his selection by competitive
examination, to be held In Portland, prob
ably In June. This preliminary exami
nation will determine which one of the
many aspirants shall receive the appoint
ment, the one coming out second being
appointed as alternate, and will be al
lowed to take the academy examination
in event the regular appointee falls to
qualify. The competitive examination to
be held In Portland will cover practically
the same ground as that to be given at
the academy, and Is Intended, so Mr.
Moody says, to determine just what the
several candidates know, and which one
is best qualified to pass the subsequent
