Tlio Nc\v Kmporor.
The obsequies of Germany's dead emperor -
poror will not bo over before all Europe
will bo intently seeking to know what are
the sentiments of the new ruler of the
empireso as to divine , if possible , what
may bo his policy. Despite the assur
ance which ho is said to Imvo given
from time to time within the past two
months that ho had no military ambi
tion , and that 1m would seek to avoid
rather than foment war , the confidence
of Europe in him as a friend of peace is
not strong. There is a general belief
that his motive in thus declaring him
self was to calm the fear of the nations ,
likely to increase if ho remained silent ,
with the growth of conviction in the
fatal character of Frederick's malady.
When just after the accession of the late
emperor to the imperial rule it was pro
posed to make William regent with un
restricted powers , it was declared
throughout Europe that such action
would be regarded as almost tantamount
to a declaration of war. The plan was
Bismarck's , and when the probable
olTcct was teen it was modified so that
the crown prince was clothed with
limited functions for a time in order to
relieve the emperor. The * fact of this
circumstance developing so strong "a
feeling of apprehension regarding the
then crown prince furnishes plau
sible reason for supposing that
he was counselled , and saw
the wisdom of the counsel , to re
assure Europe by announcing the peace
ful sentiments and intentions that have
been credited to him.
Sineo the death of Frederick the now
emperor is said to have talked in the
same vein. It is understood that ho
will adhere to the triple alliance , made
in the interest of peace , and if this shall
prove to bo his intention .Europo vill
need no better assurance that BO far as
Germany is concerned the pcnro will
not bo disturbed. But there is this to
bo kept in mind , that under William II
Germany will probably have a loss dis
position to compromise than has
marked her policy for the last dozen
years , and that while she may do noth
ing to provoke trouble , if it is thrust
upon her she will show more ro'adinoss
to robont it. The now emperor
may not really want war , but ho will
not have the same solicitude to avoid it
that his grandfather had. Tlio knowl
edge of this may induce oven greater
care than is observed not to fall into
disputes with the Gorman empire. Un
questionably William will not allow the
military establishment of Germany to
deteriorate , but he may rather bo ex
pected to strengthen it wherever ho
shall doom increased oflloiency to bo
necessary. It may safely be assumed ,
also , that ho will not go very far on the
liberal lines marked out by his father
for enlarging and protecting the politi
cal rights of the people. This policy ol
Frederick was repugnant to Bismarck ,
whoso counbol was overruled , but the
chancellor is behoved to have greater
influence with the present omperor.
There is a strong clamant in Gorman } '
whi'-h has not boon eatisliod with the
recent imperial policy , and which now
hopes for the beginning of a , now era.
It roinalns to bo seen to what oxtenl

ment , but there is reason to apprehend
that the conservative course of the gov-

propriate for the occasion. I tied the cream-
tinted pupor together with a long cardinal
ribbon , the class colors , nnd dutcrmlncd to
