OMINOUS RUMOURS, Ii HIS ABSENCE FROM PARLIAMENT. Very persistent reports are current concerning the iiiness of the German Emperor, which is stated to havo taken a serious turn for the worse. His con- dition is alleged to oe now so grave that his sister, the Queen of Greece, has been summoned 10 Berlin. A telegram from Rome said The ■« Id. a S azionale lea-mj from Berlin that the Kaiser has been takeni suddenly worse, that two specialists have j been hurriedly summoned from the front, and that ail the of the imperial family harve arrived. j The following further messages are to baud: POME, Thursday. The depanmre for Berlin of the Queen of Greece L imminent. She has been sent for in conseq uence of the serious pro- grass of the illness of the Kaiser, her brother. PARIS, Thursday. A message from Rome to the Echo de Paris," dated 12th inst. says thr i there are assurances from neutral sources iha-t the condition of the German Emperor has become worse. Two German doctors on the Eastern front have been recalled to Berlin. It is noticeable that the German Press is completely silent as to the health of I the Kaiser. Sews of the Kaiser's iiiness first leaked out about a fortnight ago, when it was stated that he was suffering from a cold. Then on December 31 the following state- i merit appeired in the semi-orhcial organ of the Berlin Government: "The AII,E-meink- Zei- tun g ascertains from an authorit-s^iv* source that the Kaiser is suffering from a harmless nolI and i* not confined to his bed. The unsettled woather makes it appear ad- visable that the Kaise-r should keep to his room for a, few days, and his work has not been interrupted. The Kaiser receives his reports daily in the usual way." On the other hH nd, an Exchange Tele- ?, z?ii Te l e- graph Company's message from Amsterdam, dated December 31, said "Ac-ord!??' to rc-ports from Ber!:n the state of the Kaiser's health is stiJl disquiet- m?. The Ej?per?r letumed from the Rus- sian front Euifer fom a number of car- bnndes of a ?Trulent character, and the doc- tors have not yet succeeded in removing the i danger of blood-poisoning. Th-e Governor j of Berlin has advised the public nqt to de- moastrate before-th 3 Royal P-iiace, as the Emperor needs re.J a,nd quiet. Tha fact that the Emperor will be ux.abil to attend the parade on January 1 is a heavy disap- pointment fa Berliners, and wild rumours: bave spread throughout the city with regard to the Emperor's health." [ The Frunch Pres., declares that the Kaiser is suffering from cancer of the throat. and recalls that both his father the Emperor Frederick and his mother died of the saaioj malady. ACcÕrding to yesterday's wircle&s from Berlan, quoted by the "Wireless Press," Berl?n, 'Berliiier Tdi??blLtt' f¡tatt the EM-! peror is merely suffering from a liarmless: ruruncular boil, which does not even prevent him from walking out.

I am able to stat.. from a sure source tha.t the reports of the German Emperor's serious illness are well founds, and that his condi-' tion may be considerably worse than any-! one imagines, although the exact nature of the malady is not known. Many indications—the cumulative effect of which amounts to strong evidence—tend to tllhow that for some weeks, or montha past, the Emperor has ceased to exercise im-, mediate control and direction of military and diplomatic operations. Shrewd judges perceive cJear sign5 that the unity of leadership, which had been un- mistakable in the Austro-Germans since the beginning of the war. and was one of their chief forces, no longer exists to anything' like the same extent as it did until latterly, -(" Daily Telegraph.
