Serious Rupture Feared.
Washington, April 23. A most Im

Is ostensibly to take a rest in his own
country, In reality it is concerned with
the present instability of German in
tematicnal politics. It was even said
that Baron von Sternberg was Uie bearer
ol an Important message to Emperor
William from President Roosevelt and
that thi action was being hidden under
the pretext of a vocation to his estates.
In connectloon with the German am
bassador's departure, It la hinted that
two other ambassadors mar find it na
ceeaary to postpone or rearrange their
plans for tho late spring and summer.
Thceo are Baron d Planches and M.
Jusserand. It turns out that the canto
ot this diplomatic turmoil Is the disar
mament queition at The Hague, as
proposed by England, and what may
happen in cose Germany and Austila
insist on not discussing the proposal.
This question concerns the United

confirm this view ot it that, If tho
powers persist in maintaining their
declslvo stand, it will cause a realign
ment of the nations and a serious rup
ture will occur between this country
and Germany It is with these possi
bilities in viow that the Italian and
French ambassadors will endeavor to
place before their respective govern
ments special reports containing sug-
Hitches are likely to occur In the
near future between England and Ger
many, and Franco and Germany. If
Italy persists in taking tides with Aus
tria and Germany at The Hague con
