eyening and upon being an nounced was refused admittance who through her maid informedMrs MasterSon that slio was too deeply engaged itonircceivo her This indignation which this rebuff aroused in her

Ladies Kissed by Turk ish Queen Honors Her Foreign News N England May UNE Dispatch San Francisco Chrontela only way to get a chat to say nothing of an interview with Captain Xa linski was to jump into a railway compart ment with him and ride to Southampton Zaliuski sails tomorrow on tho maiden trip of tho new Hamburg liner Unless she meets with a mishap he expected to obey the orders of the War Department and report himself to the AdjutantGeneral in Washington on the morning of Juno 1st Zalinzki was sent abroad by our Govern ment on a roving commission through the great powers of Europe to keep his eyes wide open and sco how they are prepared or are preparing for war He has seen much and learned much which will bo useful to tho War Department when he makes his re Though not disinclined to talk about the trip Zaiiuski naturally refused to disclose what he luis learned new in regard to ord nance projectiles longrange guns and other preparations for the great European war which all believe is bound to comu with in iivo years at most What follows is not strictly an interview with Zaliuski but rather a summary of a two hours chat In every European power which ho vis France Germany Russia and Italy to say nothing of smaller nations like Norway Sweden Denmark Holland Belgium and found them straining every nerve and making prepara tions for war In most of the countries ho visiicd ho was afforded every opportunity of observation though Franco and one or two others seemed disposed to screen all their preparations by the strictest seoresy Singularly enough it was in France that Zalinski found the strongest undercurrent of antipathy for America and all things American In his heart the Frenchman has not forgiven us for tho failure of tho Pan ama Canal scheme which he believes solely due to American interference but it was in France that Zalinski found the greatest number of private enterprises prolttably engaged in manufacturing numerous muni tions of warfare In this respect ho thinks tho great American Republic might emulate her younger sister Zalinski does not think the next European war will be initiated by trouble between Germany and France It is far more likely that the difficulties will begin by trouble between Germany and Russia Everything seems to tend iu that direction As a straw shows which way tho wind blows Halinski mentioned an incident he saw at one of the great Russian fairs near St Petersburg A nock of trained pigeons were liberated to select from a row of Hags of all nations oho most favored countries lime and again amid the plaudits of the crowd these pigeons Hew away with the flags of France Denmark and Russia in tho order named leaving tho flags of tho other nations untouched But Russia Is not prepared for war yet would not dwell long on this point but he did go so far as to say that she has made no provision for small armaments Tho Germans ho thinks are at present the best equipped for an European war Ihe superiority of the general staff of the Ger man army and the constant drill of her myriads of soldiers in the practical details of warfare constitutes a force which can scarcely be overestimated Zalinski cau tiously observed that while he believed the young German Emperor sincere in his ex pressions of a desire to maintain peace still he would not regret an opportunity to show what his magnificent array could do If war were inevitable England in Zaun skis opinion is amply equipped to defend by land or sea anything she is likely to be called upon to defend In tho event of an European war England may hold the bal ance of power Zalinski has not much faith m the so called smokeless powder He has carefully examined the numerous varieties of it tried by France and other nations whichhe had visited but so far no smokeless powder has been made which will stand the exposure iuvitable in Held service Strange to say it was from the armies of the smaller nations visited instead of the larger powers like England France and Germany thatZalinski received the most useful suggestions Simply because he was from America he wns allowed opportunities of investigation which uo agent on a sim ilar mission from this side of the Atlantic could have enjoyed KTJSSIAN LADIES INSULTED CONSTANTINOPLE May Press is ascertained the ladles belonging to the Russian embassy who were assaulted while walking at Yrukdcre were

Ihe Turkish authorities asked that the prisoners bo turned over tothem for trial The Rus sian1 ambassador refused to transfer them on the ground that Turkish justice was il lusionary The affair has
