Foreign News: Prussian Settlement

Finance Minister Hopker-Aschoff of Prussia offered last week to transfer 15,000,000 marks in cash to Wilhelm II in settlement of all claims held by the Hohenzollerns against the State of Prussia.

Despatches reported Wilhelm of Doom disposed to content himself with this $3,570,000 sop, though he had demanded some $7,000,000.
