Now York, Fob. 2,'!. Prince Henry, of
Prussia, representative of Ills brother,
lhe- emperor of Germany, at the launch
Insr of the lattcr's American built
yacht, 1 cached here today and was
cordially welcomed as a guest of the
nation. The land batteries that guard
the. outer huibor .sounded the first
greeting of a salute of 21 guns, the
rifles of a special naval squadron as
sembled in his honor re-echoed the
contlnient, there were verbal greetings
from representatives of President
Iloosovelt, the army, the navy and the
city of New York and a great crowd
lined the way into the city to sec and
cheer the sailor prince of Germany.
Tho great storm against which the
Krnnprinz "Wilhelm had struggled for
days and which glazed tho Atlantic
coast In an armor of ice had lost its
force and resigned itself away to warm
sunshine and cheery blue skies, so
there were no regrets that tho royal
guest was a full day late for the enter
tainment provided for him. Tho gen
ius of Marconi reaching out from the
storm swept coast, had definitely lo
cated the belated liner and made cer
tain the hour which she would reach
Sandy Hook. There was a curtain of
haze oft the hook early this morning
and It was after 9 o'clock before the
watchers caught the shadow outlines of
the cautiously approaching liner.
Hear Admiral Robley D. Evans,
commander of the special squadron
and honorary aide to the prince, left
the fli'gship Illinois with his staff at
Si: 40 o'clock lu tho naval tug Nina.
The Nina met the Kronpiinz beyond
Fort "N'adsworth and, swinging around
on the starboard side of the liner,
steamed up the bay. Prince Henry,
attired in the uniform of an admiral of
the German navy ana surrounded by
his naval and military staff In brilliant
uniform, stood on the bridge of the
liner. As tho small tug drew nearer
to the side of tho steamship, Prince
Henry and Admiral Evans caught sight
of one another and exchanged Informal
salutes. Tlie distance from steamer to
tug was tin) great for conversation,
however. As tlie two vessels with a
Hot Ilia of tugs and ofllclal eruft moved
In past Fort Wadsworth. tho first of
the salutes of 21 guns was fired. As
the first gun sounded tlie prince ad
vanced to the end of the bridge of the
Kronpiinz and stood at attention.
Salute to Old Glory.
As he passed the big American ll.ig
floating over the fortifications ho
touched Ills, cap In salute and the mem
bers of lili suite did likewise. The flag
nt the jaekstalf of the Kronprinz was
dipped and the German naval band ac
lompanylng the prince played the Star
Spangled thinner. The guns of Foit
AWulsworth weio nut silent before those
ncioss the Narrows at Fort Hamilton
boomed out their salute, "When that
ceremony was over the Kronpiinz was
stopped and the Nln.i hauled around to
her portslde and Admiral Evans and his
staff boarded her. The passengers were
gatheied on the main deck and theio
wild a hearty cheer us tho admiral cuino
up the gangway.
Admiral Evans was escorted forward
at once and In the quarters of Captain
A. Kleiner, master of the Ktonpriiiz lie
and the prince met. The prince came
forwaul and the hand of the naval ofll
cur shook It warmly.
"I am very glad to see you, sir," said
the admiral,
"Everybody in the 1'nlted States is
waiting to welcome you, It Is my
pleasure, sir, lo greet you formally in
their behalf,"
"I thank you, sir, and through you
the people of your country," responded
the prince. "1 am very glad to bo here
and on tills splendid day. The emperor
directed mo to convey Ills compliments
to you, admiral, and 1 do so with very
Bipnt pleasure."
Admiral Evans expiessed gratification
at the tliuughtfuluesH of the emperor.
He presented tlie members of his statf
and the prince, gavu each u hearty
handshake and it cordial word. The
newspaper correspondents who are to
accompany the prince on ills tour
through the country, also were Intio
duced by the admiral, The prince, who
was in excellent spirits, smiled when
he faced the newspaper writers and
after the formal part of the presenta
tion said that Im was quite sure that
their relations would bo very happy.
Passing the Warships.
After a bilef halt the liner moved
ahead and at 10.30 was abreast of the
Hpeelul uquadron off Tompklnsvllle.
The (lerman standard was run tu tho
forctop of the Kronpiinz and Its ap
pearance gave signal to tho American
fleet to salute. The Han Francisco,
Cutiniiatl, Olynipiu, and Illinois lay In
perfect alignment In the order named
and made an attractive picture with
their crews manning side, turrets and
tops. They raised the German naval
standard and then opened blank fire.
The prince stood at attention on the
bridge and back of him wore Admiral
Evans nnd his stuff and the men and
the numerous suite of the German visi
tor. The prince and his staff were espe
cially Interested in the Illinois and
Olympla and offered warm congratu
lations to the Ameiienn admiral on the
splendid nppenrunre of his squadron.
The prince said that he was very anx
ious to visit the squadron and that he
would do this at his eaillest moment.
As tho Kronpiinz cleared Tompklnsvllle
the tlcct of sinnll craft around her In
creased and they kept their whistles
sounding. A crowdpd ferryboat Joined
the others and In response to tlie cheers
of her passengers the prince went to the
end of the bridge and touched his cap
in salute. There was a rush to the
side of the ferryboat that carried her
over on a list Unit looked dangerous.
When tlie Kronprinz came abreast of
Governor's Island there was another
salute and the prince again stood at at
tention until the last or the twenty-one
guns was fired.
New York and its surroundings have
rarely shown to gieuter advantage
than today, the sunlight with the added
brightness that came from the glisten
ing coating of snow, and tho royal vis
itor did not leave the bridge during the
run up the bay. He said that ho was
at last gratifying an old ambition In
visiting New York, and asked that the
points of interest be shown him and
tho geographical bearings explained.
He knew the statue of liberty, Brook
lyn bridge and the battery, and had
heard tho fame or I he tall buildings.
The latter towered high In the dear
light, and the prince .viewed them with
keen interest as tlie Kronpiinz swung
! Into North river. The famed skyline
that shows so well from the Jersey
shore caught his attention and he
watched it until a tooting tug claimed
a salute.
Crowds at the Battery.
The first of the large ciowds was met
at the battery, and from there on up
to Recreation pier, where the largest
crowd or all had gathered. Every pier
to which admission was not denied was
partly filled. The number of river craft
also Increased and the welcome there
was a noisy one. The crossing ferry
boats sounded their whistles, nnd the
ever-Increasing fleet of tugboats kept
up their noise. Tho big liners in port
were dressed, nnd the German colors
were displayed at several points along
the harbor shores. The prince fre
quently went to the side and either
saluted or waved his hand in acknowl
edgement. To the Americans present
he expressed his appreciation of the
warm 'welcome extended to him. The
last greeting in tho run up the river
was from the Imperial yacht Hohen
zollern, which is to be the home of tho
prince while In New York. She wore a
full dress of flags and her white paint,
with Its trimmings of gold, shone In the
brilliant sun. Her jackles wore new
uniforms and straw hats, and manned
the sides, while the ofllcers, in full dress
uniform, were drawn up on the quarter
deck. The mince smiled at sight of
her, and again stepped to the end of
the rail and saluted. The jaekles of the
Hohenzollern gave a lusty cheer, and
the prince smiled and saluted again.
The Kronpiinz was abreast of the pier
at noon and was quickly warped into
her berth, but there was some delay In
getting a gangway arranged.
There was no demonstration at Rec
reation pier, for the prince was not seen
by the great crowd that choked up the
end of "West Thirty-fourth street. Cav
alry Squadron A, of the National Guard
of New York, and a heavy force ot
police kept the pier clear.

a port of a landing down u flight of
italrs to the. pier floor through an
ornamental gangway and arch to the

had been decointed In the German col
ors and was covered half Its length.
The prince was met at the foot of tho
gang pl'ink by Admiral Von Haudlssln,
commander of the Hohenzollern and
his ofllcers. Meanwhile the band from
tho Kronpiinz Wllhelni was playing
the German national air.
Taking tho precedence due to his rank

was ended with the mayor's party,
which Included himself and Ills private
secretary, The German consul general
at New York and his suite formed a
part of the German ambassador's
About on hour was spent by thn
prince in receiving his callers and in
.J? a,n-rtf tihkl
making an admiral's Inspection of tho
troops and crew of the Hohenzollern.
Then followed a lunch. The prince
invited to tills luncheon those of thu
Americans among his callers who rep
resented tho navy and besides these
there wore present the members of the

The four ships of Admiral Evans'
squadron were Illuminated tonight. Tho
battleship Illinois, nt the head or the
lleet, had her name In electric lights
across the bridge In letters two feet
high. Along either side of the ship, nt
n helghth equal to the top or the pilot
house, she displayed In lights the words
"Welcome, Prince Henry." Along the
rail from stem to stern, and up the
stays to the tops or her military masts
and up und around the tops of her
funnels, were strings of high power In
candescent lights.
The showing made by the Cincinnati
was the best in the squadron, excelling
that of the flagship. The lights were
carried up her masts to the truck and
out on either arm of her long signal
arm. The effect was a giant cross ot
fire with an illuminated base, and tho
whole stunding out against the dark
ness made a most effective picture. Tho
lights uere turned on at 7 and extin
guished at 9 o'clock.
Prince Henry gave a dinner tonight

lern. Among his guests were David J.
Hill, assistant secretary of state; Hear

Mr. Spencer Eddy Says That tho

Constantinople, Feb. 24. Miss Ella
51. Stone, tlie American missionary,
who. with lime. Tsllka was captured
by bt Ignnds In the district ot Salonika,
September ,1 last, has been released
and arrived at Strumltza, Macedonia,
at 3 o'clock this morning.'
Nobody was at Strumltza to meet
JIIss Stone as tho brigands had given
no indication where they proposed to
release the prisoners.
Mine. Tsllka and her baby were also
released at the same time. They are
all well. Miss Stone Immediately made
'herself known to the authorities at
Strumltza. The first news of Miss
Stone's release was contained in a
telegram received by Mr. Dickinson,
the American consul general at Con
stantinople from the American vice
consul at Salonika. Tho telegram gives
no details of tho release.
As Strumitza is near the Salonika

New York. Feb. 23. Spencer Eddy,

gation ot Constantinople, who had
charge of the negotiations for the re
lease of Miss Ellen M. Stone and Mrs.
Tsllka arrived hero today on the
Kronpiinz Yvllh'Iin. tn an Interview-
he said the brigands captured an Amer
ican rather than any other missionary
because they believed the Americans
had tho most money and would be
likely to pay the ransom.
"Did the brigands want the money
for themselves?" Mr. Eddy was asked.
A Political Matter.
"No, they did not, and that Is where
the people in America do not under
stand this case. It Is entirely a politi
cal matter njid all the people In Mace
donia are in sympathy with the kid
napping, for they believe It is a step
toward freeing Macedonia from Turkish
rule, the same as Bulgaria has been,
and the money they demanded (J1U0,
000) was Intended for the Macedonian
"If we had been dealing with the
professional brigands, who wanted
money pure and simple, instead of the
political ones, Miss Stone would havo
been released long ago. It Is very like
ly that this capture was deliberated
upon for a long time and the victims
selected were considered best to serve
the cause, when coniDared with those
of oilier nationalities."
"Do the Macedonians have any feel
ing of enmity toward the mission
aries?" "No, they are rather friendly to them
than otherwise. They desired to at
tract the attention of the world to their
cause and Incidentally to get some
much-needed money. T have every
reason to believe they have given Miss
Stone and her companion In captivity
the very best of tieatment. When Mrs.
Tsllka's baby was born she received tho
kindest of treatment, from all we can
The Ransom Money.
London, Feb. 21. Wiling from Con
stantinople the correspondent of the
Dally Chronicle says he understands
that owing to the necessity of prole-ting
tho innocent persons who as
sisted them, the American delegates
will never divulge where and how the
ransom money for the release of Miss
Stono was paid.
The correspondent learns, however,
that the rtu-e of filling the money bags
with lend after tho ransom had been
paid, with a view of making It appear
that the mission to pay the ransom had
failed, was completely successful, It
Is practically certain that the ransom
money goes to tho .Macedonian com
mittee. Albs Stone, continues the corres
pondent, Is completely Innocent of any
knowledge of thn plot to kidnap her,
but strong suspicious am entertained
about some Itulg.irlaus who accompan

Question of Punishment the Chief
Topic of Conversation in Offi

Uy Lxtluthc Wire from the Associated l'rew.
Washington, Feb. 23. The, topic of
chief Interest In senatorial circles to
day, and, in fact, everywhere In ofllclal
Washington, was the flgnt in the sen
ate yesterday between Senators Till
man and McLauiin, (South Carolina).
There have been a number of confer
ences among senators as to what
should be done lo preserve tho dignity
of the senate and to manifest Its sen
timent with reference to the two sena
tors who violated Its traditions. While
no plan of procedure has been agreed
upon, it Is learned that there will be
vety deliberate action and it is said to
be more than likely that it will be not
less than 30 days before the South
Carolina senators will bo restored to
their full powers as senators, this de
liberation on their case being in tho
nature of a punishment, since they will
not be allowed to address the senate or
vole until no longer In contempt of the
Senator Burrows is chairman of the
committee on privileges and elections
and tonight ho said that In advance
of any meeting of the committee he
cannot say what will be done, but he
added that the matter Is of such se
rious importance that it must receive
careful consideration. It Is understood
the conferences among senators have
shown tho existence of a considerable
sentiment that the apologies made by
the South Carolina senators are not
deemed sufficient and that the commit
tee will require other and more ample
apologies to be submitted to it In writ
ing, with the assurance that such apol
ogies will be made to the senate before
a report will be made to the effect that
the senators have sulllclently purged
themselves of the contempt, of which
the senate I1113 adjudged them guilty.
The whole matter Is of punishment
and In requiring sufliclent apology. The
conferences developed the fact that the
senators regard the matter with all
the seriousness with which they dealt
with It yesterday and that they In
tended to take such action as will pre
vent, if possible, similar episodes In the
Neither Senators Tilhnun nor Mc
Lauiin was disposed to enter into any
discussion today regarding the hap
penings in the senate yesterday. Mr.
Tillman, however, did say In reply to
questions as to whether there had been
any developments in the case that
"nothing had occurred. So far as my
own purposes are concerned 1 am
simply awaiting developments and will
act In accordance with judgment as
they unfold themselves."

Senate Will Begin Voting on Philip
pine Tariff Bill Today McKln
ley Memorial Exercises.
By Kxclusio Wire from the A'ociatcd 1'iesj.
Washington, Fob. 23. In accordance
with the agreement heretofore reached
the senate will begin voting at 4
o'clock toinonow on the Philippine tar
iff bill. All tho time of the day's ses
sion previous to that hour will bo de
voted to brief speeches for and against
the bill, the time to be divided between
the supporters and the opponents of the
The opinion has been advanced that
yesterday's episode between Senators
Tillman and McLauiin might hnve
the effect of causing a postponement
of a time for taking the vote, In order
to permit senators Jo speak who lime
desired to do so, but there is no prob
ability of any change of programme.
The senate regards a unanimous con
sent agreement us very sacred, and
never allows anything to interfere
with it.
According to the present programme
Prince Henry will be a witness of a
part of the ceremony of taking the vote
on the Philippine bill.
The Irrigation bill now holds the
place of vantage on the senate calen
dar "next to tho Philippine bill, and
probably will receive the attention of
the senate after the Philippine bill Is
out of the way. There Is, however,
some impatience on the part of the ship
subsidy bill over the piesent arrange
ment, and If the Irrigation bill should
consume a great deal of time theie may
be an effort to displace It,
The MoKlnley memorial exercises
in the house of representatives on
Thursday ovei shadows the programme
In the house this week. When Prince
Henry visits the capltol tomorrow to
look down on the two houses of con
gress he will witness probably an unin
teresting spectacle, so far as the popu
lar branch Is concerned, as the house
will be working on District of Colum
bia business. The remainder of the
week will be devoted to appropriation
bills, two of which are on the calendar,
the postofllce and the diplomatic und
consular bills.

By Itluslif Wire from The Associated I'rm
New York, Feb. 23. Sixteen persons
who were guests at the Pntk ,avenue
hotel lost their lives early yesterday
morning, when tlie' hotel was on fire,
after Unities had destroyed the 71st reg
iment armory. Nearly fifty other gucsti
at the hotel weio burned severely or
hurt as they were escaping from their
100ms, and many of Uiem were sent
to hospitals In the city. Many guests
had narrow escapes from Injury, and
there were exciting rescues by firemen.
Blame for the hotel management was
expressed yesterday because there were
no fire escapes leading from upper story
rooms to the Interior court, because
there were no rope escapes in the rooms
of the guests nnd because there weio
not adequate appliances for extinguish
ing fires lu the building. Some of the
people who escaped from rooms In the
hotel declared that no warning of the
fire "was sounded to alarm tho guests.
Others said they were warned In time.
All who were burned in the fire had
dressed themselves In readiness for
flight, but had delayed too long in their
The spread of the lire In the hot"l
was causeci to some e::tent by flaniesi
in the elevator shaft, and the managCr'
of the hotel declared his belief that
thieves had started a lire at the bottom
of the shaft to create a panic In the ho
tel and 1 over robberies. That theory,
was supported In a measure by the fact
that several rooms In the hotel were
plundered during the excitement, and
one man who was caught taking arti
cles from a room was arrested and held
for examination. An ofllclal Investiga
tion of the the was ordered by the
district attorney, but police- and fire
ofllclals believed that flames from Hip
burning armory Invaded the hotel nnc.
the llrebrands started the fire in the
eievator shaft.
The loss by the fire lu the armory win
said to .be less than $100,000 and the
damage to the hotel was said -not tc
exceed $30,01)0.
