Special Cable to The Tribune.
PARIS, Jan. Now that tho presi
dential election is over, wo arc beginning
to forecast tho crop of royal vlslloru to
Paris. The J9 13 crop lookH unusually
promising, and unless the dire prophecies
of a European war aro lullllled we, shall
sco more royal personages wilhin tho
wall of Paris than in any year since
the birth of the republic. Tito king, and
queen of Denmark will probably be the
first roya.1 visitors to visit tho Palais
Ulyseoi-. und unless t.ho dreaded revolu
tion breaks out in Spain youii King
Aiphonso and bin queen arc to follow
vmy shortly after. Aiphonso, na every
body knows, has always been a frequent
visitor to Paris?, and known enough about
this city to earn his living us a tourist
guide, should his subjects decide to dis
pense with his services. But his coming
visit will bo an official one and will bo
tho visible Klgn of the friendly relations
between the two conntriew which were In
augurated bv tho Franco-Spanish treaty
and will be celebrated with imposing
ceremonies, chief among which will be
a gigantic military rcvuo at Longchamps
and a gala performance at tho Opera,
to both of which functions tho young
monarch and his queen will ride In state,
undeterred by fear of anarchists.
After Aiphonso, the king and queen
of limjland aro to pay an ofllcial visit,
and this will probably bo followed by a
visit or tho four Balkan klnga ferdlnand
of Bulgaria, "Peter of Servlu, Georgo of
Greece and Nicholas of Montenegro in
a body. All of theuo monarchs aro
unrtlouii to show their appreciation not
only of tho valuable diplomatic Mirvlces
and slaunch support France rendered
their countries during the war with
Turkoy, but also of the generosity with
which the people of Kranco invested In

French Jurist Says Marriage

Special Cable to The Tribune. i
LONDON, Jan. 23. Should an en

of the remarks of a French judge in a
recent breach of promise case.
