New York, March 7. Prince Henry
of Prussia today completed Ills tour
and is once more in New York, where
he will remain until Monday, when he
goes to Philadelphia He was absent
from the city for nine duys, during
which time his special train was within
the territory or thirteen states and
logged a total distance oC 4, 338 miles.
Ho was greatly pleased with his trip,
and tonight through Ills aide, Captain
Von Midler, issued a statement express
liK his satisfaction at the opportunity
.vhich came to him and his gratifica
tion at the cordiality with which ho
was received throughout the country.
Captain Von Muller said:
Ills rojnl lu'cliiic.-fi is very much pleaded by
liis trip into (lie interior of the United States,
lie is fully awaie of the fact that he has had
only :i superficial glimpse of a iciy small portion
of the United States and that he might perhaps
have ucd his time to greater advantage had lie
remained in one of the larger cities of the east.
Hut he' is convinced, tievcitl.closu, that, consUI
cling flic character of his mission, tho trip was
the light thing for him to do. In nuking it he
lus obtained .i iciy fair idea of the vahtness of
the country and its rrsotirccii, which tiie capital
of the United States and tho great commercial
centers of 4h! cast alone could not have given
him. Dut more' thair this impression ho values
the heaity welcome which lie met in nil places
he went through, a welcome that showed him how
.the people of the Untied Slates everywhere un
derstood and appicclated the intention of the
German emperor in tending him lieie.
His last day on the special train
which carried him to the south, west
and east rivalled in interest any of tho
others spent by the prince on the tour,
for it began with a visit to Albany, in
cluded a run in blight sunlight down
the west shore of the Hudson river and
closed with a reception at the Vnlted
States Military academy at AVest Point.
It was 2 o'clock when the special train
departed from Boston and daylight
when it was climbing through the range
of hills that divide Massachusetts and
Albany was reached at S.:iO o'clock,
and Mayor Gaus, in behalf of the city,
and Governor Odell, for the state, met
the prince at Union station with for
mal ofllelal greetings. Then, under cav
alry escort, he drove to the city hull
and cnnltol to return the courtesy
shown him. The people of tho city lined
the route through the city and their
cheers sounded in popular welcome. Ho
was received by the two houses of tho
legislature, und returned his thanks to
their presiding oillcers for the honor.
He looked through the capliol and re
turning under guard or cavalry, In
fantry and police to Union station, left
at 10.30 o'clock for AVest Point. The
train had been transferred to the AVest
Shore railroad and George Daniels,
general passenger agent of the New
York Central, who lunched with hlni,
was the guide who showed him the his
toric and scenic points from the car
window on the way down the river
At West Point.
AVest Point was reached at 2 o'clock,
.nd the mince was received with the
military honor due his place in the
naval service of his country. Colonel
Mills came to the station with a num
ber of tho oitleers at the academy and
with a troop of cavalry drove him to
the parade ground on the heights
'ihove, As the cavalry escort showed
it the brow of tho Inclined road, Knox
soitery fired twenty-one guns. The
unlets, formed In six companies, were
fit once marched on the field and tho
prince, with Colonel Mills and their re
spective staffs. Inspected them.
Dress parado followed.with the prince
ns reviewing olllcer. Tho cadets, In
their handsome gray uniforms, kept
their lines perfectly In snow that was
shoo deep, and their marching won tho
pvfilso of the prince and his otllcers.
On tho second time around tho cadets
moved nt double-quick time and once
inoro their alignment was perfect. Tho
prince saluted, and his otllcers uncov
ered when tho colors passed tho re
viewing stand. After the review tho
cadets were drawn up in close forma
tion and the prince, advancing to the
front ni tho llrst company, addressed
Thu parade grounds were surrounded
by n great crowd and tho entire re
view inude an impressive picture. Tho
day was bright and clear and the view
of the liver and surrounding country
wns excellent. At the close of the re
View the prince visited Memorial hall,
wliero tho officers on duty at the
academy were Introduced to him. Ho
greeted them, all very warmly and
complimented them on their work.
Leaving Memorial hall, the prince
and his staff went to the riding school,
where tho cadets gave an exhibition of
their riding. Tho Jumping feuts of
Cadet Hern, of the first class, attracted
tho attention of the prince, and at his
request he repeated a standing Jump
to the back of his horse, In motion.
Thu cadet lauded safely on his feet
and Jumped off ngaln without losing
his balance. After the display of rough
riding, tho prince was taken to tho
gymnasium and the cadets went
through their exercises for him. The
parting cull of tho prince was at the
house of Colonel Mills, who ho repeat
edly congratulated anil thanked. He
was so much Interested In tho post
that he prolonged his stay twenty
minutes beyond the time set for his
departure. Colonel Mills was Invited
to ride on the special to New York and
rode with the prince to the station.
Mr. Boyd Congratulated.
As the carriage, with cavalry escort,
left the grounds a salute of twenty-one
guns was fired. Tho special left West
Point twenty minutes behind schedule
time, but made up for it before AVcp
hawken was reached. Prince Henry
sent for George AV. Tioyd. assistant
general passenger agent of the Penn
sylvania railroad, who personally di
rected the railroad arrangements of the
tour, and thanked him. He passed
high compliments to American rail
roads and' In conclusion asked Mr.
Boyd to bo his guest at luncheon on
Consul General lJuenz, and Consul
Gelssler met the special at AVeehawken
and escorted the prince to the ferry
steamer AVest Point. At the pier tho
prince encountered a crowd of com
muters and they welcomed him with
cheers. The AVest Point ran to Forty
second street and landed its royal pas
senger nt rit.'iO o'clock. Captain of De
tectives Titus, with a. dozen detectives,
two score patrolmen, and a squad of
mounted police were on hand to con
duct the prince to the AValdorf-Astoria.
The prince had originally Intended to
return to the Hohenzollern, but the dis
covery of ii case of scarlet fever in the
crew changed his plan. Ho did not
fear infection himself but decided, in
view or the fact thut he is to meet
a large number of persons during the
four remaining days of his stay in the
XTnited States, that it would be better
to go to ij hotel. His flag will not be
removed from the Hoheuzollern until
the steamship Deutschlund, upon which
he returns home comes alongside of
Thirty-fourth street pier and Is ready
to receive him. He will then board the
Duetschland himself, remain on her and
use her as his flagship.
Prince Henry reached the hotel short
ly after 0 o'clock and retired at once to
his apartments, where he rested and
made preparations for the events of
the night, which consisted of ti dinner
at the University club and a "kom
niers" given nt the Arion club.

tion of thehotel set apart for the prince
and his suite and attendants was close
ly guarded by policemen and no one
was allowed to enter. A crowd had
gathered on the streets nearby, and
when the prince entered his carriage at
S o'clock he was greeted with cheers.

followed in a quick drive to the Uni
versity club, on Fifth avenue.

AVashington, March 7. On account of
the Indisposition of Mr. A'est, o' Mis
souri, and Mr. Muliory, of Florida, who
expected to speak today on the pend
ing ship subsidy bill, thut measure was
not considered by the senate today.
A joint resolution, authorizing the
president to invite the government of
Canada to join In the formation of an

ferred to the foreign relations commit
tee. The senate then began the consider
ation of the diplomatic! and consular
appropriation' bill, which carries in
round figures Jl'.OOO.QOO In appropria
tions. An amendment was adopted pro
viding that the student interpreters
employed in the legations and consul
ates In China should be selected In a
non-partisan manner, and that they
should agree to remain in the service
for ten years.
The bill, as amended, was then passed.
The senate resumed consideration o:
the bill providing for the protection 'of
the president 6f the United States.
Continuing his speech begun yesterday,
Mr. Bacon contended that the enact
ment of the bill In its present form
would be an extension of treason, as
defined hy the authorities.
He argued that tho constitution in
tended that each man shall be equal

same as if the crime were committed
against an individual.
