BILL NYE TRIES-TO DISSUADE MR.
REED FROM BEING A CZAR.
Be Cite Instance Showing That It's No
Fob to Hare to Reign Tea Honrs Every
. Day. and Assures tbe Man from Maine
, That Re Woulda't Really I.Ike It.
ICopjTlght by Edear W. Kye.J
The terrible suffering and the pitiful
condition of the working classes through
out the country, so easily traced to the
acta of tbitt fiend in hnman form known
as Thomns B. Reed, of Maine, who has
been very properly called by a free, fear
less, but perpetually outraged press the
Czar of America, leads tu to inquire what
is a czar and whither are we tending. If
I had heen told forty years ago that amid
the citron groves and spruce gnm vine-
REASOMXO WTTII REED.
yards of Monrtt Katahdin, or in some
clover enameled pasture of the mighty
Pino Tree State, a great big coarse czar
would be bum, whose influence would
be felt throughout Europe and as-fur
back as Rome City, Ind., I would have
hesitaW in selecting Maine as a site for
my own birthplace.
Had I known that there, where benefi
cent Biinshiuo wooes from its hiding place
tlio m-arlet which mantles to the brow of
tho wiutertven berry, and where the
crystal sap of the somber spruce tree
comes forth to gladden the heart and
stiinnhite the salivary glands of na
tions yet unborn: that in tho quiet of
some hotbed of shingles, where the
whito birch spool is rnado. or where the
scream of the sawmill or the snore of
the shingle mill sahues the balsam bur
dened air, would spring up, with M.khI
in his eye nnd side whiskers im bis front
teeth, a cruel nnd corpulent czar who
would enjoy biting oM people, I would
have controlled myself and been born
Maine is the hotbed of progress and
American freedom. Everything in Maine
is fit esevpt nun. Tiie work of giving
to the colored man the divine right of
voting, as ho was requested, was iuaugn
rated and assisted in Massachusetts,
which was then a part of Maine. Free
dom has always been u characteristic of
Maim. freedom to be, to do or to suf
fer; freedom to lie liorn there and then
go west to grow np with the country:
freedom to remain there and behave
one's self or go away to some other state;
freedom to fish, cut bait or go ashore,
and freedom to ntilize her hallowed
precincts as a birthplace, provided they
bo returned in good order as when first
It is, then, to me a most serious and a
most bitter truth that comes to me now
knocking for ndmirtance at the storm
d.xir of my recently refitted and refur
nished temple of reason. It is the great
sorrow of a lifetime to know that in
Maine, whore tho only trae, deep and
earnest dried npple pieof the great work
aday world was first discovered, there
should arise a middle aged czar with a
knout in one hand and au ox gad in the
other, at the end of which is a sharp
brad three-fourths of an inch in length.
And what is it to be a czir? Ask of
the blood simttered history of Europe,
where you cannot even trnst a hen to
lay fur yon a pnre and noble egg. Ask
the man whose life is today imbittered
by shivering fears and the chilling hor
ror that even his own long trusted hens
must he watched lest they insert some
deadly poison in an egg while prepar
ing it for use. Ask him at night as he
cooks his own supper over a kerosene
oil stove because ho dare not trust the
hand of his slave. Ask him as he un
laces his sheet iron corset and hangs it
on a chair, or jumps into his Mosler
folding bed and screws the copper cov
erlet down so that people, cannot stab
him in the night Ask him as he runs
his eye carelessly over this column
which I am now writing, and then blots
it out by means of his mucilaginous
roller and a handful of black sand, re
gardless of a deep and earnest kick of
our entire list of shocked and outraged
subscribers in his empire!
This is not in the nature of a threat,
but in order to lead up to the great ques
tion tvhither are we tending. Is the
time coming when one man is to have the
responsibility of this mighty government
upon his shoulders? Is tbe day at hand
when one man will have to be respon
sible and have to personally pay all the
bills of the government? Are we to be
ruled by one man who will not even al
low us to Lhink a disrespectful thought
of him without danger of the knont?
Think of the time, dear reader, if it
must come, when a nice, pleasant old
gentleman like Mr. Ilohnan, of Indiana,
may become the parent of a disrespect
ful thought regarding the czar. In fancy
I can see William now, brought forcibly
along the aisle, clutching eagerly and
yet impotently at the desks and clothing
of memliers as he is dragged to the desk
of tlio sjeaker, with bis tongue hanging
out like that of a hunted stag at a stag
party. Then in fancy I see him com
pelled to remove his Prince Albert coat
and vest, anil then remove sufficient of
his shirt so that the czar can get at it
with his knont! Then I hear the loud
and echoing plunk of the knont as it de
scends npon the spinal xylophone of the
Oh, it is too terrible to think of! It is
too sad to anticipate! Let us hope that
the day may lie longer in cotniug than
some of the papers go on to state.
What is the general tendeucy of the
nonr in other countries? Is it not toward
the dissolution of empires and the dis
ruption of dynasties? Most assuredly it
is. Moreover, the monarchs themselves
are not nt all feeling well. Th'- king of
Holland U quite ill. His victuals in
stead of doing hiui good seem to be pro
ductive of boil in the stomach lie is
often heard to wish that he was dead,
nnd his staff have promised, so far w
possible, to gratify his every wish.
The king f Spain is a brnnette glut
ton from quite u distance np the creek.
He founders himself almost every day,
and then iimnnnrs because he can con
tain no more. His doctor's bills, they
say, would buy a good cow every year.
He hates bookB and enjoys nothing but
feeding. He takes no interest in his nice
uew clothes, but constantly his ear is
straiued to catch the sonnd of the 12
o'clix k whistle, which announces that
the hands t tho castle have knocked off
for dinner. He then blows off the royal
digester to a sonare meal, to use a crude
The king of Dahomey has had both
his own and his wife's relatiolW strained
by France, and war is almost inevitable.
He knows also that it will be one of
those disagreeable wars in which he will
nave the excitement of getting some of
his most indispensable brains shot out
without the glory of a victory. Thongb
he may think he ia right, and that it is
better to be right than to be a relative
of the executive, he is almost certain to
get done up by France, and go home
carrying his largest brains in a collar
boa, 'i - ' . , ; ;.:
The king of Italy formed the foolish
habit of cutting his hair -pompadour
years ago, and toow he cannot make it
stay down. Over and over again he haa
written to me to know what he should
do in order to destroy or allay at least
that appearance of surprise which his
erect hair gives him. He says his life is
imbittered by it, and that if it were not
that he fears that he would frighten the
Seraphim he would willingly blow out
the gas and go home.
Pedro II, of Alcantara, tnade an assign
ment last year, aud putting his throne
out in the carriage house with burlaps
over it he went abroad, telling the rump
senate and house of representatives to
take their old empire and never to
darken his doors again. . When last
heard of he was preparing a magic lan
tern slide lecture on "How to Reign
with Least Fatigue, and What Style of
Scepter Is Best Fitted for Indoor Reign
ing." . -
Leopold II, of Belgium, says that if
he conld get the same salary from Phil
Armour for sticking hogs that he does
for rvigningover Belgium he would be in
Chicago early in November, when the
great anniversary and carnival of the
hog assassination of Illinois is at its full
height, and he would have his clothes
sent to him afterward.
Khuhiioukuru I, king of Siam, says
that he would rather run a soda fount
ain than be king. He gets all het up in
the middle of the day, and his throne
fairly aches by 6 o'clock at night
Muley Hassan, the sultan of Morocco,
is tired and sick of his job, and says that
if he could take a few of his best wives,
and a shotgun, and a wall tent, and go
out camping for about eighty-five years
and let the kickers do the ruling them
selves, he would be willing to do it if he
conld do so honorably, but it's like Jay
Gould with his money, he says. The
thing h;is no doubt made a slave of him,
with a hig iron collar on his neck that
leaves him never day or night, but curses
him even with the fear that he will lose
it, and not only be again poor and
forgotten, but o-cnsionally raked up
as an example and jeered at by the mob.
That is why. its Muley Hassan says, a
man frequently clings to a throne that
has a big hornet's n.t in the base of it
He hates to quit, nn.l thus adtuit that he
was uot indiixnsljle, or give the com
mon people u chance to say unjust
things of him when he is gone. He is
like the colored man who held the bear
by the tail and desired help to let go.

a string f.mund it.
Oeoigios II. king of Ureece. is a soin
ttnmhuiist. nnd hardly a night passes
that he ti.vs not wander forth and fall
off the edge of his kingdom fxnnewhere.
He says it lie felt sc. re that he had made
his culling and election nre he would
not care how soon tbe summons came.
He says he is tired reigning over a little
clearing like ir. -ce. where the history
of all the old family business is repeated.
HEADING THE KINO'S LETTER.
and the liest thing that can he read of it
is found on its tombstone. He wants to
go west, be says, where hope fires the
eye and warms the heart, and where wet
eyed and somber memory is perpetually
out of a job.
No, it is not encouraging to know, as I
do, the woes of the great who are in our
set If the reader could come with me
to my bright, warm library, where the
glowing fire lights up the rich carving
and inlaid work that delights the eye on
every hand, nnd read over my shoulder
of the cark and care and cankering sor
rows of those emperors who are intimate
with me, and who thus pour out their
whole sad hearts to m, and ask me over
and over again to get them places on the
paper, lis would understand that it is
:iit even ching to have a brass band of
your own that plays what you like all
ti;e time, cor all joy to be so great and
so powerful that you can have sirup
twice on your cakes if yon choose, or get
excused from jury duty on the grounds
that yon have to reign on that day.
Seriously. I hope that this czar scare
will blow over, and that we may use our
bombs for nest eggs in the spring, and
that all may yet be welL I have too
much faith in the great, strong heart of
the American people to lielieve that they
are in favor of a czar, and 1 also feel
that if I could have an honr's quiet talk
with Mr. Reed, after the members had
gone home and the sergeant-at-arms is
sweeping out, I conld convince him that
czanng is no kind of a way to live, and
that there is a feeling against it espe
cially at aterville nnd Kendall's Mills.
Somehow I feel it in mv heart that as
stxin as Mr. Reed looks the situation in
the eye nnd reads this piece he will be
man ..enough to say to himself, "What
ever l.etide. I will not be a great coarse
V.'hila his constituents at home did
not jump on him with that fervor which
many of ns bad expected, Mr. Reed, 1
am sure, would not knowingly become
a hateful tyrant, with blood on his boot
legs aud a back yard full of festering
Let nr. all, so far as wo are able, throw
every tender, gentle influence around
him. and we can save him before he has
got a taste of human blood.
