Doom, Holland, Jan, 28 (if) Former Kaiser Wilhelm arose at 7 o'clock this morning as usual, read the Bible, had breakfast and walked In the garden. Servants said he showed no signs of strain on ac count of the exhaustive program of yesterday when the Hohenzollerns gathered to celebrate his 70th birth day and to hail him as king and emperor. During the evening the guests partook of a repast more elaborate than that at noon. Each guest was given a menu card with a gold border and bearing a golden Hohen-zollern crown and a picture of the Kaiser in the unit or m of a nciu marshal. Under the picture was printed: "Evening Repast on the All-Highest Seventieth Birthday; His Majesty, the Kaiser and King." The former Kaiser today wrote Queen Wllhelmina a long letter of thanks lor ten years ot reiuge. Me dwelt especially on acts of friendship of Count Bentinck, his host, and exnressed his wishes for the welfare of the Dutch people. . William today resumed the roie or a royal exile. Yesterday he stood resplendent In a field marshal's uniform of the First Royal Guards and upon his breast were the highest decorations within the gift of imperial Germany and many other nations. Male participants in the celebration, garbed in the gala uniforms of their military ranks and wearing spiked helmets, saluted him as "his majesty, the Kaiser ana tung. Princess Hermine, whom the Kaiser married in exile, was not present to share her husband's triumph or to be addressed as "empress." The official explanation was that she was ill with what at first seemed to be chicken pox, but probably was only grip. There was a rumor current, however, that she was only diplomatically ill. since the greater part of the Hohenzollern clan refuse to recoenlze her as "her imperial maj esty," conceding her merely the title of the Kaiser's spouse, urown princess Cecllle acted as hostess instead of Princess Hermine. President von Hindenburg, in nis capacity as a private citizen and former field marshal under the Kaiser, sent a letter written in his own hand. It was understood that the Dutcn Government brought pressure to bear on Doom Castle to keep the party strictly private, being anxious lest the celebration lead to political demonstrations to which the Allies might object.
