THE LONELY KAISER. What has become of the German Em- peror 1 For over a month he. has been neither seen nor heard. Potsdam seems to have been almost as completely paralysed as Yildiz Kiosk. One wonders, indeed whether there is not a, resemblance I t between the two cases, and whether the famous interview of November 17th was not in effect a "coup d' etat similar to that which transmuted the absolutism of Abdul Hamid inlto the constitutionalism of the Committee of Union and Progress. It is true that the resemblance is not exact even if this hypothesis is justified, for the political paralysis of the Kaiser has not re- sulted in any corresponding transfer of power to the elected representatives of the people. That, however, there is some re- semblance—that is. to say, that the Kaiser has been placed polit-cally under a certain restraint, which is not agreeable to him seems clearly enought indicated by the sensational paragraph headed "Reaction," which appeared so prominently in the leading columns of the "Koelnische Zeifcung" the other day. The object of this paragraph was to warn the German people, on the one hand, against Reaction- ary intrigues to set aside the compact of November 17th, and to warn the Emperor, on the other, against the counsels of his new "camarilla," which, it was boldly de- clared, could only bring about "the bank- ruptcy of the Crown." The apprehension underlying this statement is curiously similar to that with which the Young Turks regard Yildiz.-ILucien Waif in "The Graphic."
