April 9, 1888

Prince Bismarck has "abandoned his opposition" to the marriage of Prince Alexander of Battenberg and Princess Victoria of Prussia, according to a New York Times dispatch form Berlin.   Prince Bismarck has apparently gained "other concessions" and all of the differences between Emperor Friedrich III and the Prince  "are now settled."
