A DOUBLE WEDDING Toronto, April interesting announcement was made last night in Massey Hall of the. coming marriage of the two daughters of Commission- er Coombs of the Salvation Army. Both young ladies are captains in the Army, one being attached to the Training School and the other to Aehrenthal had thrown Europe consternation. The dire necessity of politics which had compelled Primvj Buellow to allow the ship of the Ger- man Empire to drift entirely. into Aastria's wake also imposed the ob- ligation 011 the German Government, willy nilly, of joining in the yeloinef of the Vienna press at Great Bri- tain's policy in the Balkans. Of course, the usual Anglo-German press amenities regarding naval topics wore proceeding as merrily as usual, while over all lay the weight of the crisis conjured up by the luckless the correspondence department at j "Kaiser interview" in the London headquarters.

A Satisfied Customer is the Best Advertisement 4- .4- 4- 4 4- 4 I the attempt to assert the indifference of public opinion to the cominc visit; the sullenness, the expression of Ger- many's independence from any favors which Royal Edward might be dis- posed to confer. The auspices were bad, desperatclv bad, and an eminent, British official expatiated to the writer on the risk of fixing such important events so long in advance. hinted greaUv at the excuse the state of th- King's health might perhaps provide for a postponement of the visit. Of- ficialdom, press, public opinion, were all wrong. King Edward, in the farj; of medical advice set out at tho out at the height of a cold wave on his journey across the Channel to manifest, as he afterwards put it in his toast at the state banquet, that his coining: signified not closeness of the ties uniting the Bri- tish and German ruling houses, but the expression desire for the consolidation of f -s tween the two peoples. PUBLIC DELIGHTED i In juiftice to German public opinion it must be admitted that both before and after the visit the Berlin popula- tion was more interested in. as afterwards "delighted with, the pet- son of Edward 'VII, than a perual of the capital's newspapers would per mit one to suppose. All parties in the City Council were unanimous in welcoming the visit, and Uie I-srtre crowds which assembled at tne sta- tion on the day of the arrival of tbe British guests, and which lined tbe route taken by the Royal procession, furnished abundant proof, that Ber- lin was, at least, curious to see the stranger within her gates. As things were, it was probab.y Queen Alexandra who lent to the 'King and Queen's reception on their first appearance here, a note of warmth which was unexpected. Queen Alexandra looked charming, youncer i than ever, and she accepted the plau dits of the crowd with a winning smile which captivated all hearts bv storm. But to the man in tbe street King Edward was the clou of the j processdon- His skill in "welding >the iron ring about as tbe more fantastic editorial writers delighted to put it, had cast abowt him, a kind of Machiavellian charm. The German newspaper reader has come'to think of "der Onkel Eduard'' sitting up at night over a twentv mark cigar working out schemes to the undoing of the German Empire. And this was he! This grey pire. And'this was he! This grey bearded old gentleman in the light blue German Dragoon uniform, with a back as straight as any Prussian general's, listening with obvious in- terest to the Kaiser's explanations of modern Berlin, The courtly little speech of thanks for the Obergermei- ster's address of welcome and the .graceful gesture indicating the Em- as the agent responsible for af- fording the speaker the chance to see the beautiful City of all went, straight home to the hearts of the Berliners. HEACETNG THE PEOPLE If King Edward never nas another opportunity of showing what he learn ed of men and manners during his long apprenticeship, his reputation for doing the right thing in the right place would stand on the evidence of his Berlin visit alone. The idea of qisiting the City Hall was maslerly and sealed the success of tne four days' festivities. It is an old Berlin tradition for the chief burgomaster and the city councillors to greet anv foreign sovereign visiting the city at Berlin's official entrance, the Branden burg Gate. Here, exposed to wind and weather, in all the ghastly inao- propriateness of daylight evening dress, the, city fathers are wont to take their stand, hat in hand, to welcome the coming- guest. Countless? numbers of monarchs have received the municipal before King Edward have returned it. The official reason for King Edward's vi- sit to the city was the reception jri- ven at Guildhall by the Loni Mayor in honor of the Kaiser on his visit to London in 1907, but the King recognized the enormous signifi- cance for good or his first visit to Imperial Berlin. He knew that the lever must be laid, not court or in the Ministries, but among the people, the middle class, upon which, more and Germany is beginning to rest and in, to whose hands is given, when all is said and done, the final decision as to peace and war. So the King went to tbe Rathaus, simply in an automobile, without military escort. Out of compliment to German ways he wore Prussian uniform; brought his English and German suites of honor. The Rathaus was blotted out of ex- istence under marks' worth of carnations and hyacinths. About 51'0 invitations were issued and about applications for tickets refused In view of the enthusiasm with which the King's acceptance of the invitation was wclcom ed, his Majesty's success was assur- ed. The actual ceremony was infor- mality itself. Edward arrived and was ushered into the great hall of the Rathaus, where, in the midst. of the assembled company, stood a llower-luden table a goblet. It cannot be an easy taskj to drink strong wine out of a vessel under the scrutiny of some '500 pairs of eyes. But the Royal guest rose to the occasion with that ease of manner which in itself would have been sufficient to gain for him the title of the fourth 'ioorgo. that of the First Gentleman of Europe. With an appreciative nod to the re- spectful murmur of the chief bureo- j master, "Stemberger Cabinet. 186S" j he- raised the cup, with a little as- j scmbled cup, with a little bow to the j assembled company, and quaffed it to j the divgs. j GENUINE WELCOME I OF CANADA IvUH It Sive by opeaiaf Savings them in the Union Give them a good help them to1 make regular, even if small deposits, and you will be giving them a training in thrift that will stand by them through life.

It was obvious from the first that the political importance of the visit, lay very largely in the personal note in other words, in the manner of. the King's reception by the people of Ber lin. The political situation between England and Germany possesses as'a matter of concrete fact, no points of difference, and so the visit offered no occasion, for anything beyond a gen- oral but very thorough discussion of the policy of the countries. TELEPHONE TRAIN DESPATCHING Then the more prominent of the City Council and the Free Ci-' tizens were presented, and for each and sundry the King had a sundry word. To Prof. Koch he spoke of thte Anglo-German co-operation in East Africa in the campaign against the sleeping sickness; to old Geheun- rat Hera he made a jocular reference tc that fine old gentleman's habit 6t riding daily in the Tiergarten, des- pite his 82 years. He praised Rathaus, admired the decorations, talked about Berlin, the cleanliness of her streets, the growth of her traf fie, the beauty of her Tiergarten. When City Councillor Michelet. a sturdy old Berliner of 72 years, pro- posed the customary "hoch" for "Ed ward VII. King of Great Britain and the shout that went uD fairly shook the rafters and made the windows rattle. The good impres- sion was confirmed a day later when it was announced that 'decorations had been conferred on the chief bur- gomaster and several prominent city officers. effect of the city visit was im- mediately forthcoming.
