The Divine Rle'it" Getting To Be a

Beulin. Dee. 4. The socialist move
ment for an amendment of the law relat
ing to lese niajestas Is receiving a support
and sympathy that surprises the govern
ment, which, iu common with the other
ruling houses of Germany, is unalterably

right of kings, and the authorities every

law against every one speaking disre
spectfully of any member of tbe reigning
house, from the kaiser down. The kaiser
is such a stickler for royal dignity that he
will not permit even deposed rulers, like
tbe notorious Millin, to be spoken of

solid food, and he sits up in bed frequently
for a few minutes at a time. He was out
of bed a quarter of an hour yesterday, and
walked a few steps. This, his physicians
say, counts for a great deal.
