Bismarck was then occupying his palace in Berlin, and we saw him frequently walking in the park. Princess Bismarck gave the use be established between the rulers which would surrender to England power over Germany, which would be very distasteful. Bismarck had ever been a bitter enemy of Victoria from the time of her marriage to Frederick III, then Crown Prince of Germany. ment for their advancement and the development of the resources of the empire. It was said that it was at the behest of Bismarck and those who were influenced by him, whose support the young Emperor felt he must have in the beginning of his reign, t his salutations and responses to salutes given him. We were invited to attend the opening of the Reichstag, and saw Bismarck and other illustrious German officials and statesmen. We heard the discussions on the condition of the German colonies,
the Legation. We left London August 9 for Brussels, where we were kindly cared for by the American Minister, Mr. Russell Jones, who the same evening saw us off for Germany. Because of the war we secured transportation only as far as Vera, and here we received information that the Prussian Minister of War had telegraphed to the Military Inspector of Railroads to take charge of us on our arrival at Cologne, and send us down to the headquarters of the Prussian army, but the Inspector, for some unexplained reason, instead of doing this, sent us on to Berlin. Here our Minister, Mr. George Bancroft, met us with a telegram from the German Chancellor, Count Bismarck, saying we were expected to come direct to the King's headquarters; and we learned also that a despatch had been sent to the Prussian Minister at Brussels directing him to forward us from Cologne to the army, instead of allowing us to go on to Berlin, but that we had reached and quit Brussels without the Minister's knowledge.

Count Bismarck and I occupied the rear seat, and Count BiCount Bismarck-Bohlen — the nephew and aide-de-camp to the Chancellor-and Doctor Busch were seated facing usve me a thorough welcome, expressing, like Count Bismarck, though through an interpreter, much inter Thanking him for his kindness, I rejoined Count Bismarck's party, and our horses having arrived meae Minister of War, General von Roon, and Count von Bismarck assembled on the highest point, and I be Moltke.

All this officer was starting off, I remarked to Bismarck that Napoleon himself would likely be one of wines. Among those present were Prince Carl, Bismarck, Von Moltke, Von Roon, the Duke of Weimar, thng of Prussia. At this the King, followed by Bismarck, Von Moltke, and Von Roon, walked out to the his former post, and after a conference with Bismarck, Von Moltke, and Von Roon, dictated an answer continue on to Chevenge. On the other hand, Bismarck-Bohlen bore with him one great comfort-some eped to await, as we afterward ascertained, Count Bismarck, with whom the diplomatic negotiations were Emperor having alighted at the gate, he and Bismarck walked together along the narrow path and enty indication. The talk lasted fully an hour, Bismarck seeming to do most of it, but at last he arosre most likely correct, for I had often heard Bismarck say that France being the richest country in

terms of an armistice of twenty-one days, arranged between Jules Favre and Count Bismarck in negotiations begun at Versailles the latter part of January. The convers were appointed by the Executive, to enter into further negotiations with Count Bismarck at Versailles and arrange a peace, the terms of which, however, were to be ailles, the principal negotiators being Thiers and Jules Favre for France, and Bismarck on the part of the Germans. The terms agreed upon provided for the occupation the Emperor, the only persons I met at Versailles were General von Moltke and Bismarck. His Majesty was in a very agreeable frame of mind, and as bluff and hearty aas destroyed and her vast resources sorely crippled. I said good-bye to Count Bismarck, also, for at that busy time the chances of seeing him again were very remoire which no power in Europe could disrupt, and as such a union was the aim of Bismarck's life, he surely had a right to feel jubilant. Thanks to the courtesies e
ing in and in, is patent from the well-known condition of the royal families of Europe, among whom there has been so much intermarrying for many years that hardly a reigning monarch in Europe has had any considerable influence in the conduct of affairs of his own government because of his inferior intellectual qualities. And so far as health and vigor of body is concerned, many people of the royal families can scarcely be said to have a leg to stand on. Wellington, Napoleon, Disraeli, and Bismarck directed the affairs of Europe, if not of the world, more than all the monarchs of their century; and the people govern America. The nobility of England, it is but just to say, stands higher in physical beauty and strength, and in intellectual force, than any other peerage in Europe. But it would long since have died out from inanition, had it not maintained itself by very frequent marriages with the yeomanry and the peasant classes, and by constant accessions from the commercial men an

In view of the menace to the world's trade by the Anglo-Portuguese treaty, Bismarck's strong personality now came to the front, somewhat prompted by King Leopold. Stanley admired the straightforward vigor of the German as much as he admired the philanthropy of the Belgian rule. Bismarck summoned a Conference at Berlin, to which the leading European powers sent delegates. There were also delegates from the United States, and with these Stanley was present as their technical adviser, and, naturally, had a good hearing. The Conference was mainly interested to secure th consisted, virtually, in putting up a sign-board to whom it may concern. By this simple process, and with no trouble of exploration, purchase, or settlement, Bismarck then calmly proceeded to appropriate a large slice of Eastern Africa, which had been opened up by the British. The future course of African affairs, including

ession was signed, and Mackinnon's way to form a Company, and obtain a Charter from the British Government, was clear. Sir William subscribed fifty thousand pounds to the capital, and raised the remainder from among his own friends, for no friend of Mackinnon could possibly resist a request from him. The object of the Company was mainly commercial, and, left alone by politicians, Mackinnon was the man to make it remunerative. But after the advent of Germany into the African field, with Bismarck at the helm, and the principles declared at the Berlin conference behind them, it became necessary, in order to prevent collisions between Mackinnon's Company and the Germans, to give the East African Company a political status; hence, with the utmost good — will and promises of support, the Charter was given to it by the British Government, and the Company thereby incurred tremendous responsibilities.
