FAVOR RUSSIA
GERMAN EMPEROR IS WORKING
UP SENTIMENT.
Make Two Addresses in Public
Which Have SlgnlflcanceHe
Fears the Yellow Peril China
Threatens Most Danger.
Berlin May 7. The Impression Is
working up sentiment hereoVH oh7re
spreading here that the kaiser Is
working up sentiment In Germany In
la vor ot Intervening in the Far ISast-
cm war In favor of Russia. The rea-
sons for this Impression are to lo
looked for in two nubile aoeechos
which his majesty haa mado since his
return from his Mediterranean
cruise. He said In his speech reply-
ing to the welcomo of the mayor of
Karlsruhe that ho hoped that Ger-
mans would cease nil Internal strife
o that the country would be ready
to strike a powerful blow backed up
by all ..patriots If It should become
nessnry to take nctlvo part In the pol-
itics of the world. Thla rpecch sig-
nificant in Itself was strengthened by
tho words ut the kalter spoken nt
the opening or the new bridge across
tho Rhine at Mayence on Sunday last.
On this occasion the kaiser said: "I
sincerely nope that It will be iMisslble
to prosorve pence which is necessary
for the permanent development of In-
dustry niiTl commerce. But I nm firm-
ly convinced that If this bridge should
ever be put to any use It will lib
round perfoctly sound and reliable."
Those two public speeches when
hold together with tho utterances by
tho kaiser In the narrowor circles con-
corning ills fours of tho yellow peril
re considered as good cause for an
xlety.
The most throatenlng danger is tho
prouabillty that tho Chinese govern-
ment will not be able to prosorve tho
neutrality of tho Chlneso empire and
It Is suspected that a secret under-
standing between Germany nnd Rus-
sia exists which would call for Ger-
mnn action should China try to mako
common cnuso with Japan ngalnst
Russia.
