KING AND CZAR. MEETING AT SPITHEAD. The Czar of Russia, with the Czarina and their children, arrived at Spithead in the Inperial yacht Standart on Monday, and were cordially welcomed by King Edward. The Czar's yacht was met and escorted int British waters by three British cruisers and some destroyers. After the Standart had dropped anchor a boat put out from the British Royal yacht, containing the Russian Ambassador, Count Benckendorff, and his wife and daughter, who were the first to go aboard the Russian yacht and welcome the Czar. His Majesty the King, accompanied by the Queen, descended the steps at the side of the Victoria and Albert and entered a Royal barge, in which they proceeded to the Standart. The meeting between the Monarchs was most affectionate. Then the Czar and Czarina accompanied their Majesties to the British Royal barge, and all proceeded on board the Victoria and Albert. The Royal party proceeded to luncheon ill the saloon, where they were joined by the Premier, Mr. Asquith—Minister in attend- ance on the Czar during his stay-and, by Sif Edward Grey, and Mr. McKenna. There were no speeches at the luncheon. The King and the Emperor simply raised their glasses to each other. After luncheon the Russian Sovereign con- versed briefly and separately with Mr. Asquith, Sir Edward Grey, and Mr. McKenna. At a banquet on the Victoria and Albert in the evening the King made a speech, in which he welcomed the Czar and Czarina to British waters. His Majesty said he was glad that tile Czar should have had an oppor- tunity of seeing perhaps the most powerful and largest fleet ever assembled, but he trusted that the Czar would never look upon these ships as symbols of war, but, on the contrary, as a protection to our coasts and commerce, and, above all, for upholding the interests of peace. The Czar, in his reply, said the magnificent review which he had witnessed bore full testi- mony to England's greatness. The grand sight of the Home and Atlantic Fleets had deeply impressed him. His Imperial Majesty expressed the hopef that the friendly welcome gi-ven by the King and Queen and by their people to the mem. bers of the Duma, and in the winter to the Russian squadron, might be a token of grow- ing cordial relationship between the two countries, founded on common interests and mutual esteem. GTTABDINO THE CZAR. Every precaution was taken to guard the Czar. Detectives were constantly on the watch ashore, and the Standart was surrounded by patrol-boats, which kept all craft not possessed of passes at respectful distances. Crowds assembled at all the landing-stages at Cowes on Tuesday, hoping that the Czar would land. His Majesty, however, did not come ashore, but followed the racing in the King'" cutter, Britannia. His little daughters landed twicin the morning to play on the beach near Cowes with the Prince of Wales' children, in the afternoon to shop in Cowes. The King and Queen, with their guests, went for a cruise in the Britannia, having luncheon and tea on board, and at night their Majesties dined with the Czar and Czarina on board the Standart.
