The Kaiser said that he held France in the hollow of his hand, that Russia IB of no account since the disastrous war in Japan and that if a Pan-American war Is Inevitable, the sooner It came the better. The Kaiser said he was tired of suspense, that Great Britain Is a decadent nation since the war Iti the Transvaal ana that the Angfo-Japanese alliance is an iniquitous alliance against all white races. The only way to counteract that alliance, he said, Is for the United States and Germany to act together.
