May 15.-The recent mom-ingi of Kmperor Williain and Kmperor Charles Is of absorbing intere:^l to the British public. Tliorn arc two view points which appear Ijn thccom-ment on the meeting, one as to the Imnicdiato result of the eoutereucu and the other as to Its future result, but both are of paramount Importance. The fh'st Is the effect which the meeting R Ilkoly to have on military events, whether anplhev great ] blow nt Italy may be expected to coincide with The daily anticipated renewal of the onslaught at the Anglo-French also whether Au-itria can be pnrsuadod ,to send troops to tl\o western front to strengthen cxliauat-ed German divisions. Tlie more distant outcome of the | Aicctlng and its cementing of a poll-1 tlcnl and economic defensive alliance of tho Central Powers is a realization that eventually must be faced In tho niatarializatioi^ of the Mlttel Kuropa policy and 11 is argued that it this Is accomplished, the natural reply of the entente natloiis would bo the placing in oiieration 6\' the Russians calling for economic pressure against Germany, known as the Paris resolutions because it is contended that only by the strongest economic pressure could tlie'/Entcnte deal with tho greatest unit of power ever known In the world's history. Comments from the Austrian newspapers reaching London, transferred to confirm tho ojilnion that the' alliance of the Central Powers has been consolidated in an allembraclng manner. Vienna newspapers are unanimous,,In. the vla.w that.a, mifltitude of enemleB necessitates self-preservatiou and demands that Germany and Austria-Hungary should give their defensive alliance a general character. They also emphasize that neither empire wUl give up Its political, inilUary or economic pergqnallty. The Frembonblatt gays that ''the powers aro united fbr common defense not only as formerly| against Russia, but also against any other powers which should attack either ally, and adds that in accordance with the political deepening of the alliance, measures will also be taken to provide that the military domain will guarantee compensation to the German and Auatro-Huugarlan armies by which nolther the individuality nor tho organization o� tho armies of Germany or Austria-Hungary will bo assailed.
