Welcome la Jfolsy Oae.
Tha f)ret of the Urge crowd, waa met at
tha Battery and from there on tip to Recre
ation pier, where tba largest crowd of all
had gathered. Every pier to which admla
aloa waa not denied waa partly filled. The
number of river raft alto Increased and
the welcome waa a noisy one. The cross
ing, ferryboets sounded their whistles and
tha ever-increasing fleet of tugboats kept
p thalr noise. The big liners in pert were
dressed and tba German colore were dis
played at aeveral points along the harbor
aborts. The prince frequently went to the

gave a lusty cheer and tbe prince smiled
and aaulted again.
Kron Prins was abreast of the pier at
noon and waa quickly warped Into Its
berth, but there was aoma delay In getting
a gangway arranged. There waa no dem
onstration at Recreation pier, for the prince
was not eeea by the great crowd that
choked up the end of West Thirty-fourth

Guard of New Tork and a heavy fords ot
police kept tha pier clear.

Dart a Raafbeat at
NEW TORK, Feb. It. -.The north At
lantio served to tha big Kron Print WU
helm five daya of weather that tested
Prince Henry'a tea legt. But the prince
thowed bis sailorly qualities and never
misted a meal. Each afternoon and even
ing found him In the amoklng room and In
spite of wind and wavea and tpray hi
spent hours on the bridge. The voyage
waa without apecial Incident. Prince Henry
waa a most democrstle passenger and the
big company of his fellow voyagers united
In declaring btm an amiable, charming
and unassuming gentleman.
Kron Print WUhelm tailed from Bremer
bavea on Saturday. Sunday afternoon It
touched at Southhampton. From there U
ran to Cherbourg and by f o'clock Sunday
night put to sea.
The thlp waa now beaded for New Tork.
Dinner waa over and the passengers who
came aboard at Southampton and Cher
bourg were all on deck endeavoring to get
a look at Prince Henry. Hia royal high
ness did not keep them waiting long, for
he walked along the deck alone, entered
the smoking room and took a seat at a
table where several of the royal party were
already aeated. Here he drank his coffee
and smoked cigarettes for awhile and then
filled a pipe. He joked and laughed With
his party continually and waa the aoul of
good nature.
Seems Oblivions to Artlsta.
Two American artlsta and a German
artist sketched him . aa he sat for two
hours In the smoking room, but be seemed
oblivious of their penciling. The pas
sengers crowded around the tables near
tha one occupied by tbe prince; and those
of the women who had not actually ven
tured Into tbe smoking room and taken
aeata peered through the windows from
the deck. The attention he attracted, how
ever, did not aeem to annoy hia royal high
ness In the least.
Probably never before waa the amoklng
room of a liner ao frequented by women
passengers aa waa that of Kron Print
WUhelm all the way over. Whenever It
was sought by Prince Henry he was aurs
to find among Its occupants many ot the
fair aex and he aeemed to take their
scrutiny In a good natured way. Some of
them were beard to order the aama kind
of beer the prince was drinking and the
stewards brought It to them exactly the
same aa was being aerved at tbe prlnce'a
table. But the prince, German-like, la a
slow drlnksr, and tha women discovered
that ha aat at the table for tome little time
before a single glass waa exhausted.
Heavy Weather Rncoantered.
This describes the situation on Sunday
and Monday night; but oa Tuesday the
treat hlp began to encounter heavy
weather and the battle between tbe ship
and aea made many of tha passengers seek
their staterooma. This thinned out the
smoking room crowd considerably, but the
prince appeared every day after luncheon
and every bight after dinner, alwaya alt
ting at tba aame table. The heavy aeas
did not affect him In tha least, for he Is
an excellent sailor. While he did not miss
a meal or omit one of his twlce-a-day visile
to the smoking room during the entire
voyage, some of the royal party did fall to
appear at their meals or In the smoking
room. Even Dr. Reich, the staff surgeon ot
the prince, bad a aevere attack of seasick
ness. .
Thlg Indicates the rough weather Kron
Print passed through almost the entire
voyage. But it waa tba strong head winds
and tha fact the propeller were out of
water every few minutes that ao greatly
retarded ita speed. His royal highness and
party occupied a table In a far corner or
sort of wing of the main dining saloon.
A partition ran half way across, hiding a
part of the royal table from a portion of
the main dining room. But the prince re
quested that a greater part of tbe parti
tion be taken down and the wide open
ing thus made waa transformed Into an
arch and decorated. The change made
the prlnce'a corner seem more like a part
of the main dining saloon and the pea-
asngera facing bla corner at meala could
aea him and hit party plainly.
Deallaea ta Inconvenience Others.
Captain Rlchter had offered the prince
the captain's large table In the center of
the grand salon, but bit royal highness
did not cara to eauae tha regular patrons
of tbe liner who had been aaslgned to
those seats any Inconvenience and de
clined the change.
Every morning after breakfast tbe prince
took bla constitutional around the deck
two or three times among the passenger.
In tact, he waa throughout the voyage
thoroughly democratic. An artist for an
Illustrated weekly bad been eent by hit
paper to accompany the prince. Ha wat
passing whsre tha prince aat In the smok
ing room on Tuesday night, when his royal
highness hailed him, took hia band end In
vited him to alt at the table with the
royal party, where ho chatted for nearly
an hour.
Another Incident which showed hia good
fellowship also baa an artist, thla time an
American, aa Ita beneficiary. The prince
heard that the American bad made a aketch
portrait of himself which had attracted a
good deal ot attention among the passen
gers. Hs sent for the artist and after com
plimenting tin work offered to gtve him a
sitting. The artist became so embarrassed
when he began work that he waa unabje te
accomplish anything. Then the prlncs re
marked that "It he did not feel In the
humor for It they would try again another
Dcaaacratla Ways rieaaa All.
His consideration of others and bis dem
ocratic ways gained for the prince the Hk-
tn of every one of bla fellow passengers.
The Amerlcsa passengers particularly were
characteristically enthusisstio ta their
Captain Rlchter. who waa on hie first
voyage aa commander of Kron Prtns Wll
helm, bad hoped te make a record trip,
but the weather waa agalntt htm. He did
not leave the bridge except at short Inter
vale during the entire voyage. Prince
Henry apent much of hia time each day on
tbe bridge. When tbe captain expressed
his disappointment because he could not
reach New York early on Saturday the
prince took occasion to compliment him on
tbe masterful way In which he had han
dled bla ship and the speed he had made
under auch adverse conditions.
Oa Tuesday the prince went on a tour of
Inspection of the ship with tha captain and
the ahlp'a surgeon. He visited the atetrags
tod aecond-class passengers and examined
tbe'r Quarters.
On Wednesday Kron Print spoke the
liner Lucanla, and the captain, crew and
passengers of that abip aent their eompli
neats to the prince in a message by wire
lees telegraphy. Tbe priace answered as
Heartiest thanks to captain, crew snd
passengers ot Lucanta aud good passage.

Two instruments of the Marconi aystem
were fitted up especially for the we of
the prince, wbose messages had precedence
ever all others.
One of ths most eujoyable features of the
voysge was the excellent music. In addi
tion to the regular band belonging to the
ship the music corps of tbe Second Matro
sen Vlfffen, containing thirty-eight pieces,
waa on board. This ta one of the great
military bands of Germany snd came on
Kron Print to Join Hohenxollern.

On Thursday night at dinner the band ot
tbe kaiser's yacht furnlshsd the music, In
termitting Oermsn and American airs.
"Yankee Doodle" and "Dixie" were played,
rousing great enthusiasm. The roya! party
cheered heartily, ae did all the German
passengers. At the request of Prince
Henry, "Yankee Doodle" was rendered
again and It waa no sooner finished tban
a request came from the asms aoures for
a repetition of "Dixie." One American
wondered If the prince knew the meaning
and history of the two.
"Indeed he does," aald several American
Friday night tbe prince left his own
table In tbe amoklng room early and Joined
that occupied by George A. Armour and
Allison V. Armour of Chlcsgo. Robert Bon
ner and Archie Harman ot New York and
Spencer Eddy of the United States legstlon
at Constantinople. Allison Armour bad
been Introduced to the prince as a yachting
man and this brought ths whole party to
gether on common ground. Prince Henry
sat conversing with this party ot Amer
ican for two hours. He remarked that he
had always desired to hear tome genuine
American plantation aonga and hoped be
would have the opportunity before be re
turned to Germany.
At noon on Friday tbe prince Invited Sir
Charles Cust, a British naval officer, who
la on hia flrat visit to tbe United States,
to Join him in tbe smoking room. Satur
day morning be Invited Mr. Armour and

Not one of tbe party had aald a word
about It being Washlngton'a birthday.
After the tour of Inspection the princs In
vited them to his room, where he opened
champagne. - '
"Now, gentlemen ot America," said he
"let us drink to George Washington."
The storm that atayed with Kron Print
all the way acrosa the Atlantic, on Satur
day morning changed the pitching motion
ot the thlp to a terrible roll. Everything
In the ship that waa loose tumbled about
and It was difficult and dangerous for tbe
passengers to move. At tbe concert after
the captain's dinner on Saturday night
most of the amusement was afforded-by
aeveral member of the band falling over
while they were playing. The piano bad
to be made more secure with ropes and
two men ateadied It. The passengers aat
holding themselves securely in tbe sta
tionary chairs.

The prince put hi autograph on - ten

off for tbe benefit ot the sailors. Ths
lowest priced one brought 136 and the high,
eat 84. Six hundred and twenty-five dol
lars was the sum raiaed from the eale,
but the auctioneer's energies were all ex
hausted la holding fast rather than in tba

applauded with enthusiasm. Saturday the
prince aent word to the five American
nawspaper men on board that he would aee

presentation and the. prince shook hands
heartily with each ot them. Among other
thlnga he discussed with the newspaper
representatlvea wireless telegraphy and It
development and application in the future.
At that time the ship was nearlng Nan

Betweea tha Nations.
NEW YORK, Feb. 2S. Prior to bis de
parture from Germany It waa officially an
nounced that Prince Henry would not be
Interviewed and today be adhered strictly
to thla determination. Whatever the prinoe
baa to aay for publication will be given
out by a member ot bit staff.
Captain von Mueller, aide-de-camp to tbe
German emperor, wbo la used to spsak not
only for Prince Henry, but in a measure
to voice the emperor'a own views, said
today to an Associated Press representa
tive, in explanation of tbe prlnce'a vtalt:
"When the president, upon the Inquiry
of the German emperor, whether Miss
Roosevelt would perform the ceremony ot
christening bis Amerlcan-bullt yacht, had
given hi consent In a most gracious man
ner, hia majesty resolved to ahow hi re
gard for the president by having himself
represented by a prince of his house on
the occasion of ths launching.
'In contemplating thla courtesy the em
peror remembered the pleasant relations
between Prince Henry and Admiral Dewey
and Rear Admiral Evans, and also recalled
that hia brother, on his return from China,
had expressed' a strong wish to visit the
United States.. This desire, however, could
not be gratified at that time.
Aceaatomed to Win Esteem.
"Moreover, tha emperor was Influenced by
ths fact that Prince Henry, whenever he
waa abroad, bad always won the admira
tion and esteem of those with whom he
waa brought In contact and had always
succeeded In bringing a tone of kindness,
bssed on mutual etteeem, In the Interna
tional relatione.
'Thla, I think, will indicate the feeling
that actuated the emperor In the choice of
his brother aa hia representative on this
pleasant oocaslon.
, "The prince Is grateful that tha emperor
selected him for this mission. He is de
lighted to make the acquaintance of the
great American nation at last, and enjoy
tbe honor of meeting the excellent man at
the head of It. It had been only the stern
command of duty which prevented" him from
visiting the new world after hit return
from East Alia." -
New Version of Dewey Incldeat,
When Captain von Mueller' attention was
called to the various reports regarding the
friction which . It wat alleged had arisen
between Prince Henry and Admiral Dewey
at a dinner gtvaa by the former in Hong
Kong, he laughingly replied:
"Oh, well, a good many versions of that
incident, and all of them wrong, have been
printed. I happened to be at that time
the personal aide-de-camp to the prince.
The truth ot the matter la this, And I
speak authoritatively:
"In the harbor of Hong Kong the prince
had tendered a dinner to the commanders
of the vessels ot vsrlous natlona at that
time in the ' port On that occasion the
prince drank to tbe health of the eoverlgnt
and chiefs of ths' nation, the flags of
which were represented by guest. In ths
ordsr of hit toast his first, next to that
to tbe German- . emperor, . - waa to Great
Britain, and th second te Russia, while
the United' States was the laat. The rea
son Great Britain, was named in the first
place was because the dinner happened in
a harbor1 of 'British territory, the acting
governor of which waa one ot the guests.
A woek or so afterward the prince waa in
formed by' the German consul, Hsrr Yon
Loper, who Is now -In Valparaiso, that the
representative of the United States, namely
Admiral Dewey,- was pained because the
prince had not put the United States at
tha bead of hit toastt, contrary to tbe In
ternational usage which demands the order
ot the toast on such occasion. Thia
usage is that the toast shall be given in
the order of seniority of commission of the
officers present. - Dewey was. In fact, In
that respect the senior among the guest.
Dewey Accepts Apoloay,
"The "prince did not hesitate to seek an
open, frank talk on the question of etiquette
with bis American comrade, whom he
highly esteemed1. ' When visiting tbe flag
ship Olympla' he frankly told Dewey that
be had convinced himself that he wat
jrrong, and that Dewey waa right. And
Dewey' reply was this: 'Well, air, X thank
you for your apology. I may aay that 1
liked you before this, but after what you
have told me Juat now, I think I like you
better, and this le eaying a great deal.' It
la readily to be seen that this settlement
ot a question of etiquette could only eerve
to strengthen the friendly relatione be
tween them, and that Prince Henry It
keeping the worda of hia American friend
in grateful remembrance.
"Prince Henry," continued Captain von
Mueller; "Is a sailor with atl hU heart
and soul.' He takes prldo In maneuvering
hia ship and hi aquadron. Everything be
longing to engineering baa his especial
Interest- He is always thoroughly ac
quainted with tbe engines in the ships un
der his command and at the aame time
alwaya glvea bis attention to the personal
welfare of tha men In the englae rooms,
whose work b.e appreciates.
"As a sportsman he- 1 versatile. Like
all tha prince ot the royal houae, he ta a
devoted hunter, end hs loves ths sailing
sport, having owned aeveral yachts, hit
last en being the cruising yacht L'Esper
ance, bought In England, which he called
himself from Southampton to Kiel. He Is
a fine horseman, aa ha haa often had Occa-
aioa to show by participating In polo
game, and he Is a bicyclist and k golf
player, too."'
Prlne a a Sea Conniattr.
Of Priace Henry as a sailor and sea com
mander, Captain voa Mueller said-
"The prince entered the' naval service
In 187T, like any other cadbu Hia first
long trip being one around the, world, he
made from . 1871 to 1888, on -board the
frigate Prlnea Adalbert. Hia first trip in
tbe cspaclty ot a watch officer on board
of the corvette Olga la the yeara of us!
to 1884 brought him to the West Indies
snd South America. In the aummer ef
1887, when be wae 25 year of age, be acted
for tbe first time s a commanded and
waa made the chief of a torpedo division
with which he eventually aallad to Eng
land en ths oocaslon of tbe Jubilee of Queen
Victoria. Later he was plaoed In command
consecutively, of the royal yacht Hohen
sollern, the cruiser Irene, so chrtstensd
after bla wife, the coaat armored ehlp
Beowulf, and tha- battleships Sachssa and
Woerth. When commander of the last
named ship la the fall of 1I9 he wat pro
moted to the rank of real admiral, being
at that time only IS year ot age. His com
rades looked upon hia rapid promotion
without eavy because they knew him
worthy of It.
"In 18 tor the first time he hoisted his
flag aa chief of ths second division of tba
home squadron, and In 1897 bla Imperial
brother, abowlng thereby bla great con
fidence In him, ordered blm to lead rein
foroementa to tbs cruising squadron In
Chinas watsrs. which was. owing to the
political eamplieatlooa at that time, rather
exposed, and te take the oomuiaad of the
newly formed eecond division of the cruis
ing squadron.
"When ths prince started for the Orient,
warlike entanglements with China were
geflerally expected. While, however, events
took a different course, the prince fulfilled
an important political mission for his coun
try by elevating the standing of tbe Ger
man empire la the east by tightening. In
an excellent way, the tiee between the
Germans residing In tne esst Aslatle places
and tbe Fatherland. To express his thanks
for these achievements of hit brother, the
emperor made htm, in the aprlng of 1899,
chief of the cruising squadron, and pro
moted blm, six months later, to the rank of
a vice admiral. In the beginning of tbe
year 1900 Prince Henry returned home,
after an absence of over two years.
"After his teturn from China tbe prince
waa entitled to a longer furlough, but,
through the unexpected retirement of a
senior admiral, he waa obliged, at early
at the tall of 1900, to take an active com
mand at chief of the First squadron. This
Is the heart of the German navy and the
war high school, a tecond admiral serving

explosives. Ons of these men fired upon
the police and a fight ensued In which one

resume work next Monday and charact
erised tbe Sarria affair as unimportant.
