KAISER'S PIOUS UTTERANCES.
In reply to a telegram, conveying congratulations from the Bremen Senate on tho German naval victory on the Chilian coast, tho Kaiser said : ' " 1 rejoice with the whole of the German people over this splendid proof of the true German sailor apirit. 1 piay that God will grant victories for our arms on land and sea; and that He will confound the plans of our enemies for the destruction of Germany and German influence." In reply to a message from the President of the, Reichstag ou the heroic, defence of the German garrison at Tsingtao, the Kaiser said: "This model settlement of Gorman culture, built with the labor of many years, adds new laurels to our spirit "of faith unto death, which the German people have, so often shown through their army and navy in their defensive war against a world of hatred, envy, and covetoiusness—a war which, if Goci wills, will not he in vain." THE NEW ARMY. In the House of Commons on November 16 Mr Asepn'th took strong exception to a gloomy picture drawn by Sir Ivor Herbert of the state of health (if men of the neiv army. Sir Ivor, after remarking that in some place- between ,50 and 40 per cent, of the men are suffering from "avoidable disease," implored the. Government to take, sterner action for the repression of drunkenness and other evils. Mr Asquith said that, taking illness and disease of all hinds, there, were not more than from 10 to 15 per cent, of cases in the training camps. He spoke in terms of warm appreciation of the sobriety and decency of conduct of the men of the new army. '"The. average standard of conduct among the recruits i- worthy of the country and worthy of our cause." He a-sured the Hou-e that every possible step will be taken to mitigate and remove temptation. THE K.USER THROUGH FRENCH SPECTACLES. A well-known Frenchman, who resided for a long time in the Prussian capital, says that the adoration of the more intelligent class of Germans for the Kaiser is b"Uer described as fanaticism. The Emperor often passed through Berlin, travelling from one -.front to another. He could be occasionally seen going by automobile through the' streets of the capital, which were lined by huge crowds of people, all of whom wanted to see him. His approach was heralded by fanfares ot trumpets. " [ have seen thousands of men and women throw themselves upon the pavement, with hands ehuiped and heads bent as in prayer, renminbi..: in this posture until the Imperial car has passed. More striking, however, than this medieval humiliation is the Emperor's own personal, appearance. lie is a, mere- shadow of his former self: his hair is while, hi.whole faee is wrinkled, and his. lower hi) has dropped, while beneath his eyes are ■unhealthy pouches cau.-ed by sleeple.-i; nights. He salutes the crowds, but never smiles. He sits bolt upright in his ear. staring ahead, lixedlv, as though facing a terrible catastrophe.'" MISCELLANEOUS.
