THE EMPEROR CRITICISED. (Per Press Association —Copyright.) • BERLIN, February 12. Criticisms were made in the Prussian Diet of the reckless speed at which the royal motor-cars were driven, a fact which was unpleasantly illustrated on the occasion of the Emperor's hurried visit to Potsdam. Despite signalling and the use of mounted police to keep jthe streets clear, a motor lorry rounding a corner missed the Emperor's car by inches, and overturned the following car containing the aides-de-camps. The occupants were not'seriously injured. After a long sitting the Diet ad--.journed, owing to the exhaustion of the stenographers.
