THE QUEEN IS NO "DUMMY."
Somo of tho Prerogatives of tho British
People on this side of the water aro
apt to attach too much credttnee to tho
oft-repeated but somewhat falla
cious assertion that the queen of Eng
land has no power; is a mere figure
head, in fact, and nothing but a consti
tutional puppet in the hands of tho
cabinet for the timo being. It is often
stated that the president of the United
States is possessed of far more execu
tive power and prerogath es than her
British majesty. This is, according to
the New York World, a great mistake.
Tho English sovereign has retained far
more power than peoplo realize. For
instance, she has the power to dismiss
every soldier in tno army, lronx tuc
commander-in-chief down to the
youngest drummer. She could disband
tho navy in tho same way, and sell tho
ships, stores and arsenals to tho first
buyer that presented himself.
Acting on her own responsibility, sho
could declare war against any foreign
power or mako a present of any sec
tion of tho empire oer which she rules
to any foreign power. Acting strictly
within hot prerogative, sho could mako
every man, woman and child in the
country a peer or peeress of tho realm
with tho right in tho case of males
who aro of ago to a &eat and a vote
in tho houso of lords. With a single
word'or stroke of tho pen she could dis
miss any cabinet that was In power,
and conld, moreover, pardon and lib
erate every criminal of any grade that
is confined in theBritish penitentiaries.
These aro only a few of tho things
that the queen could do If she desired.
