The i.hiw n Dorsn't Count In Politics.
Wo are a self governing country. Tho
occupant cf tho throne reigns, bnt does
not rule. Tho queen's political opinions
are her ovrx. They have no more to do
with those of the electors than those of
any other lady in the realm. Her maj
esty's sub; ects neither know nor, with
all respect be it said, care what she
thinks upon home rule or upon any
other political issue. On such matters
they take the liberty to act tspon their
own opinions, and no revolutionist can
do a worse service to the crown than by
attempting: to make political party cap
ital by a-'serting that she favors one
parry and li -.favors another.
In 1880 there were many reasons why
the Tories were defeated. Not the least
of them w is that Lord Beaconsfield en
deavored to convey an impression that
the queen was strongly opposed to their
defeat. Yet, unwarned by experience.
it is obvious that it is intended to appeal-
to tne co mtry to put an end to Mr.
Gladstone's government by asking it to
regard this government as injurious to
the queen's health because she is so fer
vent a Conservative and Unionist. Lon
