There may bo some truth In the re

prima donna was to have sailed for

Unite Spain and Portugal
Madrid via Hendaye Dec 10
Ever since the Portuguese revolu
tion the Spanish government has
been sitting over a powder maga
sine with a lighted fuse simmering
away Inside 4t It was sitting on
the magazine even before King
Manuel was deposed but it was
Manuels deposition that set the fuse
to burning
burningAny
Any hour may bring a revolt In
Spain Tho slightest event may pre
cipitate It One governmental pre
caution too many will start trouble
Or one precaution too few will do
the same thing An indiscreet utter
ance of some monarchist official or
the right lint of vinfla I1 aatory
speech by ono of the revolutionary
leaders will bo the signal l for a wide
spread uprising There was never a
dynasty in greater danger than is

Tho Spanish and Portuguese re

together It was the Intention to
start tho revolutions in the two
ountrlesi at the name time It BO
happened however that the move
ment developed somewhat more rap
Idly In Portugal than in Spain Ther
Portuguese could not wait without
endangerIng their cause The Span
ish republicans feel intensely the
Humiliation of having the compara
tively unimportant Portugal estab
lish a republic ahead of Spain and
they are Impatient to act More
over the Portuguese have shown
them that attempts at revolution
are by no means hopeless
Tho Republicans Ideaboth In
SpaIn and Portugal Is to establish
a federal republic In which both
countries are included This Is
deemed necessary because the popu =
lotion of Spain Is split according to
the geographical location into a
number of very distinct races It Is
believed they will live together with
least friction If they are given homo
rule In purely local affairs with a
single presldentiand congress forthe
entire group much after the pat1
torn of the United States of America
The plan seems satisfactory to all
the republicans throughout the en
tire country and there Is no doubt
that the Portuguese are willing to
JoIn such a union
Alfonso probably will make a +
larder fight for his throne than did
Manuel He has abler advisers than
did his brothermonarch and greater
financial and military resources It
Is certain however that the army
Is by no means loyal to him Ex
cept for the high omcers It Is prob
ably safe to say that more than halty +
the troops would Join the revolu
