King Christian Is apparently destined
to lean politically towards Germany
rather than towards Great Brltlan, like
his two immediate predecessors on tile
tin on,- of Denmark:
This Is to he attributed largely to
the influence of his wife, a German
princess, sister of the Grand-Duke ot
Mecklenburg-Schwerin, and of the fu?
ture Ka-lsenne. in View of this, much
weight "Is attached in Knglsh official
circles to the fact thai since the be?

I mates for tho Increase of Copenhagen's
war defences, a sum of no less than
$ 15,000,000, for tho development of tin

[Moreover, contracts have been placed
I with foreign shipbuilding firms for the
I speedy construction of three warships
I of the most modern type, of several
I destroyers, as well as for that of a
? number of submarines. This uncom?
mon activity of Denmark is causing
no small concern In English, especi?
ally at the admiralty, whose naval cal?
culations with regard to the North
Sea and the Baltic will have to be;
, It Is probably because Constantino

I realizes the new relations between his

has secured his transfer to his old

regarded as the most Important post
In the Danish diplomatic service for
one tra; is?from a Danish point or

l Whose salary and allowances besides
j are at least .'-0 per cent, smaller. On
the other hand it may he doubted
whether Brun has ever been perfectly
content at the court of St. .lame.-.
l"or he was seriously handicapped there
from tho very outset hy the fact that
his three Immediate predecessors were
men who enjoyed the < lose and inti?

that he had been appointed to the post
In deference to royal w ishes.
Brun came to London a fertcct
stranger to the English royalties, and
without any particular acquaintam e
with the court at Copenhagen?thanks
to his long residence in this country.
Then, too. he Is a bachelor, without
large private means. whereas tho
other Danish envoys to England Were
rich, and their respective wives great
favorites with Queen Alexandra, this
being especially trim in the cas.

those envoys who represented reigning
families closely related to that of Great
Hritlan, he never had ?mite the same
.-tHtns as his predecessors, cither at
Windsor or In society, which of course
takes its cue from the- sovereigns.
So, all things considered, he will h,;
glad to return to a country where lie
loft nothing but friends, where ho was
highly valued, and where he will be
warmly welcomed, without the- possi?
bility of a doubt.
King Albert, ef Belgium, has de?
clined to accept tile guardianship ot
his aunt, tho e-x-E in press Charlotte,
Of Mexico, and the trusteeship of her
great fortune, which, ever since the
tune when she became insane, In ivi>..
was administered by her brother, King
Leopold, until his death. During thesi
forty-live years she has been Under
restraint In one chateau or another in
Belgium, for the paal decade In that
of Bouchout, near Brussels.
Tlio administration of her fortune
was a source of intense bitterness be?
tween Leopold and the Imperial House
of Austria, the ill-fated Charlotte hav?
ing become an Austrian Archduchess
by her marriage to Maximilian, brother
of the Emperor. For Luopoid. despite
the fact that much ot Charlotte's ]
money was derived from Austrian
sources, declined to give any account?
ing, or to permit anyone but himself'
to have a voice in tho control of ihel
King Albert has. however, changed ]
all this, ami after consulting with
tho Austrian Emperor, and securing
It la full consent, has appointed as ad- j
mlntstrator, Prince Earnest do Llgno,
who will keep Emperor Francis Joseph
fully Informed of all matters connect?
ed with the management of ex-Em
pfess Charlotte's fortune ,as also of
the treatment which she receives. j
Prince Earnest Is the only brother!
and heir to the head of the house,
who is tentii Prince de Eigne, of the
Holy Human Empire. French Prince
d'Ambllso ot d'Eplnoy, and a Spanish
Grandee of the lirst class.
The do Eignes do not belong to tho
mediatised houses Of Europe, yet it
is lo them that King Albert Is Indebted
for his throne, the Belgian crown hav?
ing been tendered by the B< Iglail peo- I
pie to tho prince's great-grandfather,
the eighth Prince do Llgne, in ls>3t),!
after their successful war for separa?
tion from the Kingdom ot Holland.
It was on the Prlnco de Eigne s re-j
fusal of the crown, and at his sug?
gestion, that it was thereupon offered
to Queen Victoria's unc.e, Prince Leo?
pold, of Saxe-Coburg. Franc?-, agreeing
lo the selection on the understanding
that Leopold, widower of Princess'
Charlotte ?n' Wales, should marry
Prlhcosa Louise oi France, one of th?j
dauglilei-.s of King Louis Philippe.
The then Prince de Eigne was moved
in the mailer by purelj patriotic con?
siderations, realizing that Hie inde?
pendence of Belgium would he safer ir
thus guaranteed by a King allied to
Great Brltlan and France, than by one
who had no such connections.
