lic interest in tho maneuvers is slight,
but tho Emperor has kept attention
centered upon his movements by sugges

the iutcntiou of tho government to to
reorganize the Herrcnhnusns to destroy

scheme of reorganization of tho House
on a basis akin to tho modern ideas of
In connection with this reform Ilerr
Miguel and Hcrr Furth havo prepared a

and Prussian Saxony, by which tho
local elections are controlled and tho

motive of tho government is a comple

which are impossible without n sweep
