WILLIAM II. IN PALESTINE.
The German Emperor is dow in
Constantinople on his way to Pales
tine, which is part of the country
inled by the "unspeakable Turk."
"What does his visit mean ? No
doubt it means something more than
at desire to gratify curiosity or to
satisfy religious sentiurentalism, but
how much more? It is only natural
that the nations of Europe should
feel an interest, resembling anxiety,
to know what political purpose oc
casioned this remarkable visit the
first of its kind made by any great
European sovereign since the crusad
ers. It was announced when he left
Berlin that William II. intended to
land at Haifa, the ancient Hephna or
haven" of the Jews, about fifty one
miles from the Sea of Galilee. This
place is at the foot ot Mount Carmel
and hard by Acre, called by Napolean
'the key of Syria." It is about to
be connected by railroad with Damas
cus, a city of 250,000 inhabitants.
The significance of the Emperor's
choice of a landing place lies partly
in the fact that there is a prosperous
German colony there now and partly
in the rumor that tbe Sultan may
make the Emperor a present of this
port, with its great possibilities.
Tbe Fortnightly Review for Octo
ber intimates tb:it not only Haifa,
but some small port on the Persian
sea, may be bestowed on the German
Emperor by his grateful friend at
Constantinople. That such a sugges
tion should be made by such a peri
odical is of itself significant. It shows
how suspicious and apprehensive the
England of today is. The same maga
zine recalls the fact that German
statisticians have figured out lately
that Palestine and Syria could sup
port, under proper conditions, frcm
10,000,000 to 14,000,000 of Ger
many's surplus population. "To any
ne,"itadis. "acquainted with the
fine climate and extraordinary fertil
ity of the country such an estimate
cannot appear excessive."
It is not altogether likely that the
German Emperor is the advance
agent of a colonization scheme, but
it is impossible. Germany has shown
of late j ears a growing ambition for
commercial enterprise and an as
tounding ability to develop it. The
3Toung Emperor's strongest desire is
to make the Germans the greatest
commercial people on the globe.
Despite the fact that the Anglomaniac
ignoramus has named him "war lord,"
he aims primarily to be a "trade
lord," enriching his empire and stop
ping with colonial wealth the gaping
mouths of the hungry socialist mob.
During his stay in Constantinople
tbe Emperor visited, among other
places, a German school, and in the
speech he made there he used the
phrase, "victorious force of German
ism." Vague as is the phrase, it
shows clearly that the Emperor's
mind was dwelling on business of tbe
sort that kings engage in. A new
movement in the commerce between
the far East and Europe may be ap
proaching, and the object of the Em
peror's visit may be put "German
ism" in the way of asserting Its "vic
torious force" in the coming era.
"Venice fell because the Turks closed
her commercial routes to the East.
The Fortnightly Review recalls this
fact and adds: "Our little country
is at present the center of the world's
commerce, but will not remain so if
the great trade routes fall into other
hands." Perhaps that was what the
German Emperor was thinking about
when he decided to go to Jerusalem
by way of Constantinople and Haifa.
No doubt the Sultan of Turkey
holds the key to the commercial
situation in the Levant, but he ut
terly lacks the power to use it. If he
should attempt to hand it over to bis
friend, "William II., England and
France might unite in objecting.
However that may be, it is certainly
true that in these days of steam
power by land and water there is a
natural line of intercontinental com
merce which extends from the Bos
porus to the east shore of tbe Pacific,
by way of Palestine, Persia, India,
Burmah and China, and that to open
it might endanger tbe present British
supremacy in Oriental trade. There
is still another intercontinental route,
which touches Alexandria and passes
through Palestine. "Whoever holds
Palestine," says a recent English
writer, "commands the great lines of
communication, not by land, but by
sea. Not only would the power in
Syria control the railways, but would
be master of the Suez canal, and in
addition would dominate Egypt.
With a modern power like France or
Germany firmly established in Syria,
the British could only remain in
Egypt on tolerance."
The Emperor may find no practi
cal way to gain a comprehensive
grasp on Palestine, but, under cover
of a pious wish to visit the birthplace
of Christianity, he can be his own
Joshua and Caleb, spying out the
land and perhaps bringing back a
cluster or two of the territorial and
commercial grapes of the country.

How to Prevent Croup.
We have two children who are subject
to attacks of croup. Whenever an attack
is coming on my wife gives them Cham
berlin's Cough Remedy and it always
prevents tbe attack. It is a household
necessity in thiscountry, and no matter
what else we run out of, it would not do
to be without Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy. More of it is sold here than
of all other cough medicines combined.
