Visit.
BERLIN, March 11. Tbe semi-official
Korgtb. German Caxette, commenting this
evening upon the departure of Admiral
Prince Henry of Prussia from the United
State referred In the warmest term to th
generous hospitality and unvarying courtesy
and good will extended to the emperor's
relative and continued!
"In the strengthening of the traditional
friendly relations between two great, pow
erful and progressive nations In tbe re
newal of the old confidence we couple in
our thought with gratitude th thousands
of American men and women who every
where gave Prlne Henry a Joyful welcome,
coming from alncere hearta. It 1 just
these perfectly spontaneous demonstration
ot friendship, coming from all classes of a
proud people, that give u confidence that
th gbod feeling that haa been engendered
and manifested both here id over there
by the visit to the land of George Washing
ton will continue It 'Influence la tbe re
latlons between the German empire and the
United State politically In troubles, a
they are In a way, to the advantage ot both
peoples."
Beside th semi-official declaration In
th North German QasettaMMJa lubl
edly originate in the Foreign offloe, other
newspaper refer to th departure of Prince
Henry and express their satisfaction with
the honors bestowed on him.
As Prlnoe Henry bears homeward the
recollections of a splendid hospitality," saya
the Vosslachs Zeitung, "he has received
never-to-be-forgotten impressions of the
evolution of a great nation which owes
everything it is and can do to ita own
power and liberty.
"It la easily comprehensible that all
classes tried to briag before the eye of the
brother and representative of the emperor
the eplendor, wealth, civilisation and well
being of the American people. Neverthe
less, pride and self-respect were not the
only motive for th sumptuous festivities;
Th other motives were a friendly feeling
for the German nation, tbe recognition of
the fact that tbe Germans took an active
part la the development of the United
States, respect for German Intellectual life,
and last, but not leaat, was the winning
and unassuming personality of tbe prlnoe,
which Imparted an especially agreeable tne
to th festival days.
"Th fact must be recognised that Prince
Henry did hi part well and avoided every
thing that would caua a discordant note
and this without going too far. A calm
observer does not Indulge In high flown
hope regarding th political result, but
on -'thing haa been accomplished, the
Americana believe In the sincerity of Prince
Henry' declaration of friendship at Phila
delphia. "The wish of Prince Henry for Ameri
can friendship I the wish of the German
people and we hope the future will show
that It 1 also th wlah of th American."
The Berliner Neuste Nachtrlchten ssys:
"After a fortnight' stay, rich In hard
work, but filled with magnificent impres
sions. Prince Henry today leave th ho
pltable shore of th United States.
"Nobody In Germany could have expected
that the . spontaneous manifestations, ot
friendship at 'every place where the prince
stopped would have reached euch a degree
of warmth, nay, enthusiasm. The satis
faction with the way in which the quite
unparalleled trip passed off Is consequently
all the greater."
