Diet , made a speech congratulating Prince :
msmarck on the approaching anniversary or
his birth. Tim prince made a speech thank- I
log the deplles for their Itnll wishes.
The weather was sunny this morning aCer
n stormy night. The Irst train arrived aL
12rO : p. m. , but few reporters anti halt a
Ilozen gendarmes constituted the greater part
at those who greeted the vlsHors at the
statIon. But there was a scene of great
animation when Count Herbert msmarc .
, . _ Count W1Iam I3lsrnarck . Count van Hantzau
anti General Count van \Vahlesee arrived In
order to meet the nearly ,100 members or the
nelchstag and of the Prussian Diet who
came here on three special trains. A large
temporary wooden pavilion was especially
erected near the platorm to accommodate
the visitors , who were In the most varied
attire , some wearing evening dress and opera
hats and others wearing morning or travelug
costumes. Conspicuous [ by hIs light blue
uniform was the venerable Oberroorsler
Lange , who was evidently wel known to
many of the visitors and who actively as-
' slstell In theIr reception. ,
Just as the train bearing the final con-
tngent steamed Into the staten Prince Ills-
marck appeared on the platform , having
walked front the house , a distance at only
1r0 ya rls.
Ito wore the uniform or the lallerstedter
4 culraslers covered by a long , light gray
cloak , with yellow facings and a wide fur
collar. 'fhe burnished helmet on his head
glittered In the sun's rays. As he walked
down the double row of bowing visitors ,
Prince Bismarck , whose bearing was as erect
all soldierly aB over. though he was lean-
Ing on a cane exchanged greetings with
his former colleagues and frIends , having
a pleasant word for each and now and then
Indulging In a jest which excited a burst
of laugh ler.
As he passed the pelnt where the representative -
atve ot the Press association was standing .
the latter heard him remark : " ' . ' , 'ell , you
have come to see me In my wilderness. We
are not accustomed to such grand visitors In
hide parts I can tel you. "
This sally evoked a fresh outburst or mer-
rlinent. The prince's eyes were keen and
undimmed and twinkled kindly and good
naturely whlo he chatted pleasantly with
all al sundry suhjeets. )
Having walked the entire length at the
platform , the prince invited the visitors who
were thronging around 10 accompany him to
. , , the house , apologizIng for the poor aecommo-
- I daton It afforded anti Intimating that u
. , more formal rectpUol Nould be held there. I
'a Count herbert lsmnrclt repeated the invitation - '
ton In a lower voice , and the company
walked In a long , straggling procession to
the house.
c- Upon reaching the garden the guests pro-
ceetled 10 the rear at the house , where ther :
Is a large balcony. Prince , flismarcic accompanied -
panlell hy his sons , his daughter and his son-
in-law. nil In deep mourning , appeared on
the terrace and were received with loud
cheers by the visitors below. \\'htefl the
cheering hall subsided spokesmen from the
several branches of the legislature made
sleeehes brIefly conveying the fervent hop
that Prince Bsmarck would long be spared
to enjoy his well earned repose. Each
speaker pall an eloquent tribute to the great-
ness and enduring character or the great
German statesman's life worlt.
PrInce IBmarck listened attentively to the
speecbes , loaning against the gable or the
house and bowing and touching his helmet
to each round of npplauso. When the addresses -
dresses were over Prince nsmarclt , standing
close to the stone balustrade , replied In a
loud , clear voice , which was distinctly audible
to all present lie spoke for nearly twenty
minutes , with wOlllerrl1 animation , emphasizing -
sizing his remarks wHh frequent gestures of
the band. The seH.deprecatory remarks with
which he bepan were answered with loud
Ihoutl of "Neln. " When & In the early Part

"ever lamented mlster" ho broke down completely -

moved , but no sound could be hieartL When
nt last the silence was broken I was WIth
amlblo bobs and toar.dlmmell eyes that he
completed the sentence referring La his lIe-
loved Emperor I Wilam I. From that mo-
ment on the Ilrlnce spoke with energy and
earnestness , anti later beenmo more jocular
exciting alternate cheers and laughLer. lie
concluded with elpreBslng regret that he waR
no lanKer able La take an active part In 1101-

OTTAWA , Ont. , : [ arch 5.-I Is denied In
government circles that there Is any hikohi-
hood of a new treaty In regard to Dering
sea fisheries being negotiated , as indicated In
dispatches from Washington. I Is true that
Canadian officials will probably go to Washington -

lug the damages suffered b ) Canadian
scalers aB congress has refused to pay time
amount , but the general question oC Bering
sea negotiations Is not likely to be reopened.
WAShINGTON , March 25.-Omciais here
doubt the competency or the Canadian government -
erment to deny there will he no new arrangement -
rangement negotiated In place or the present
Inelclent system Imposed by the Bering sea
arbitration for the proteclon or seals. Such
an arrangement , whether It took the form era
a treaty or a modus vivendi , would be ne-
golated directly between lie United States
and Great Britain. or course I Is assumed
that the British would consul the Canadian
government before commlttnp themselves ,
hut It Is a maler of record that the first
i'iodmus vlvell was even entered Into against
the CanadlanB' wishes , who naturally can be
counted on LO favor absolute freedom In the
seal waters at all tinics. As 1 mater or fact ,
on January 2 : Secretary Gresham addressed ,
a note to Sir Julan lluncerote , the British
ambassador here calling his attention to the
Inadequacy of time present arrangement , and
suggesting a modification to further restrict
time fisheries. I Is true that as yet no reply
hRB been received front the British embassy.
but It Is fully expected that the maler will
not be lost sight of.

that the trial will be br court martial and

was the nnnouncement that the Dominion
