King Carlos of Portugal, Also to Meet
King Edward to Confer Concerning1
Concessions In Africa. I
London, England, November S.
King Edward's Imperial nephew,
the German emperor, arrived at San
ilringham today and will remain there
during the roming week. He Is ac
companied by a small suite, including
the Imperial chancellor and two phy
sicians. Though the visit ostensibly
is purely a personal one there is
every reason to believe that tho meet

In important lnte.-nutloiutl understand

ant to Great Britain as an outlet for
her newly ncqulred colonies. The
presence of King Carlos of Portugal
In England gives strength to this sur
mise concerning the importance of
Emperor William's visit. The Portu
gese government, it is understood, is
willing to transfer some portions of
its South African territory to British
rule. Germany, however, is under
stood to be strenuously opposed to
British trade securing such an advan
tage, at any rate, unless Portugal is
willing to placate Germany by grant
ing her some similar concession, and
It is believed that before the emperor
and King Carlos leave England a bar
gain will ho arranged.
