Ills death, long beforo his approach to tho

Had ho lived for a month or two longer
he would have completed tho tenth )car of
his reign. History will have llttlo to say of
poor Alfonso XII. personally, savo that ho
was a manikin at one time In tho hands of
(iambctta. another In thoso ot lllsmarck,
having neither forco of character nor Intel

been an almost constant series ot national
disasters nnd humiliations. Spain has In
fact gono from bad to worse since Alfonso
stepped on the throne.
Iu tho chief diplomatic circles of Kuropo
the question Is being naturally asked,
"What will bo tho lesitlt now that tho
lennl Invalid has shutllcd oft tho mortal
colly" Opinions vary on this head. A dip
lomatic dlgnltiir), whoso namo for ohvloui
reasons Is withheld, but whoso svnipnthy
with l'uclo SCorllla is of a decidedly enthu
siastic charaetci, foretells tho Immediate es
tablishment of a republic, con
cequeiit on tho King's demise.
(Jiieen Christina not having presented her
io)al spouso with any male Issuo, King;
Alfonso leaves no heir to his throne Ilia
eldest daughter, the Princess des Asturlas,
Is only three or four ) ears old, and could, ot
course, li gull) succeed her father after im
Interregnum ot regency when she should
reach her fifteenth or sixteenth summer.
Alfonso's adherents are determined to
pioclnlm the little princess Queen of Spain
and tho Council of Stulo will nominate!
Christina tho guardian ot tho young sov
ereign. It Is thought In many quarters tbst tlio
ltcpubllc will bo established In Spiln, but
whether it will bo tbo moderate ono ot
benor Castclar or tho Itadical ltcpubllc of
Zorllla, few Bceni nt present ublo to de

Alfonso, as they regarded hlui as a weak
tool iu ll.o h mils ot others.
