I But Emperor William Says No. I One of the petty quarrels that oc casionally arise between relations, and sometimes carry them to at least £he verge of war, Is that of the suc cession to the throne of Hanover* liritnswlck. which is now agitating Statesmen In England and Germany, and involves directly the friendly rela tions between the German emperor aud his uncle the king of England. To gain an appreciation of the grav ity with which the royal rivals view Duka of Cumberland. the dispute. It U necessary to g<i bark to the time of George 1.. who, when ho succeeded to the English throne, was both duke of Brunswick l,tincburg and king of Hanover. At ithat time there was. of course, n<t German empire, and the duchy ami the kingdom were independent princi palities, in which their rulers held large property and revenue rights, fro jquently referred to as the Guelf treasure. Hut there was also another house of Hrunowick-Wolfenhuttel, which had arisen from a division oj the possessions of Ernest the Confes •or. duke of Brunswlck-Lunoburg. be tween his two sons, the elder of whom was the progenitor of the house ol Brunswlck-Wolfenbuttel. Then It happene that while George 111. of England inherited the Guell possessions, the dukedom of Bruns wlck-Luneburg and the kingdom ol Hanover, hla sister Augusta married the duke of Rrunawlck-Wolfenbuttel. Her grandson, William duke of Bruns wick, died in ISS4 without issue. This terminate the house of Brunswick- Wolfenbuttel. and left all claims to the title of duke of Brunswick in the house of Brunswlck-Luneburg, which is now represented by the duke of Cumberland, cousin of King Edward Of course It is well known that King Edward is of the house of Bruns wick Hanover, but neither of the Ger man title* which the Georges held could pass to him because of the Salk law. which prevented his mother Queen Victoria, from Inheriting them The succession, therefore, to both Brunswick and Hanover went to hei uncle, the duke of Cumberland, eldest surviving son of George 111. The cousin of the English king should be by descent both duke 01 j Brunswick and king of Hanover, but in fact ho is neither. There are * lot of political complications whirl have led the German emperor to re fuse his assent to the suceessior urged by his royal uncle, and whicl give rise to the bitterness of leellnj that has grown out of the dispute. In IS6G war broke out between Prussia and Austria. King George ol Hanover, son of that duke of Cum berland. who was son to George 111. sided with Austria. Prussia won. and took revenge on George of Hanovet by depriving him of his kingdom After the death of ex-King George his son. the present duke of Cumber land, made claim to the throne 01 Hanover. Not only was the cl mrc jected. but the kingdom of I* novel was absorbed by Prussia as a mere province. Thus both titles and rev enues wore swept away, and all the Influence of the English monarch has not been sufficient to secure their res toration to his kinsman. In the meantime. William, duke ol Brunswick, died, and the duke ol Cumberland, claimant to the throne of Hanover, became heir to the duchy of Brunswick as well Here again Prussia Intervened. The king of Prussia had become Gorman emperor on the formation of the German em pire. and both Prussia (which had ab sorbed Hanover) and Brunswick, had become German s< ites. In antlcipa tiou of the very ’ontingency which now arises, a law had been passed In 1879 to the effect that if the legiti mate heir to the duchy of Brunswick (who was of course the duke of Cum berland) were prevented from ascend Ing to the ducal throne a regency should be constituted. The duko of Cumberland waa p evented from be coming duke of Brunswick on the ground of the disloyalty of his father. King George of Hanover. In 1866. Con sequently Prince Albrecht of Prussia, a nephew of Kaiser Wilhelm I. and cousin of the preaent kaiser, was made regent of Bt mswick. In this -ondftlon matters remained ntII the recent d« ith .of Prince A! Vecht. wh n the q cation of the duk f Cumberland's claima once more be ume acute. BEES MARK MAN'S COMING. Wild One* All Descended from Those Once Domesticated. * All the honey bees In this country having otfginally been Imported from Europe or Aina, there Is no racial dif ference between the wild ones and the domesticated; those that live In trees are simply the descendants of thus** that from time to time have taken "French leave" from their owners' hives and reverted to a state of na ture. The vast bulk of the Wild bees are of the German or black race, while the standard domesticated bee Is the Italian; but that, however. Is only be cause the Germans were the first to be Introduced here. Just when the Germans came is In doubt, but it was some time In the seventeenth centu ry; certainly It was not until near the close of the eighteenth century that any bees were found west of the Mississippi. The Indians used to say they could mark the advance of the white man by the appearance of bees in the woods. The Italian bees were first imported In 1860. Better temper ed and more industrious than the Ger mans, they have become popular with apiraists; but a» many still keep the German bee. and others have the hy brid formed by the crossing of the two races, while countless Italians now have taken to the woods, there to breed more hybrids, it Is clear that there Is no sure way of distinguishing between the wild bee and the domesti cated. —Outing Magazine. PENALTIES OF GREAT PLACE. Thrice Servants Those Who Have Risen to High Estate. Men In great place are thrice ser vants —servants of the sovereign or state, servants of fame, and servants of business; so as they have no free dom neither in their persons, nor in their actions, nor in their times. It is a strange desire to seek power, and to lose liberty, or to seek power over others and to lose power over a man’s self.
