London July C The news from Lis
bon this week has been o the gravest
character The situation has become
so acute indeed that London would
not be surprised to learn at any mo
ment that King Carlos has been forced
to leave Portugal and that a republic
had been pioclalmed at Lisbon Still
the fat and jolly King Carlos has
weathered many a storm during the
past few years and he may be able
to pull through the present crisis
But wlien the principal newspapers
of a monarchial country begin to hold
up their sovereign to public obloquy as
a manifest coward as a ridiculous
and useless dude and as an inca
pable fool and loudly demand that he
take his departure and make way for
the establishment of a republic the
only form of government consistent
human common sense

Peasantry Are Discontented
For a long time past there has been
growing discontent among the peas
antry due to the excessive and ever
increasing taxation to which they arc
subjected It is sate to say that they
will cheerfully welcome and submit to
any change of rulership no matter
what it is that will tend to alleviate
the crushing burden of imposts with
which they are at present literally
oierwhelmed As for the urban popu
lation it is republican to the very
core The chambers of commerce and
the chambers of manufacture the as
sociaUons of wine growers and wine
dealers the Industrial guilds the
hanking classes the legal and medical
professions the faculties and students
of tftjj various universities and col
leges nay even the very officers and
soldiers of the army particularly the
scientific branches of the latter are
nearly all openly professed foes of the
monarchy and acknowledged repub
licans who are firmly convinced that
Portugal will never recover her for
mer prosperity as well as her pres
tige among the nations of the uni
verse unless she adopts a form of
government that exercises a less
blighting influence upon the life of
the people than the deplorable rule
of the house of Braganza As for the
urban labor element it is almost
wholly socialistic
Carlos Not to Blame
Really Carlos Is not responsible for
tills state of affairs He Is a fat and
lazy fellow good natural and easy
going and probably would be happy
if he were well rid of his job provided
he received a good sized pension for
himself and family It lias always
been said that the political ideas of
King Carlos are liberal and progres
sive but unfortunately he lacks the
energy and courage of his convictions
His chief desire Is to worry himself
as little as possible about the condi
tion of public affairs He is extreme
ly fond of sport and plasure He is
a first rate shot can use his fists in
the most approved style Is an adept
both with the pencil and the brush
and Is a splendid swimmer and diver
His appetite Is proportionate to his

Queen an Able Woman
Carlos Is said to be faithful to his
wife Gossips have it that he is in
too great fear of her not to be if he
were inclined otherwise Queen
Amelie is homely being largeboned
and tall with prominent features hut
she has a good deal of political sa
gacity more than any other perhaps
of the Orleans family Some of the
Orleanlsts say Uiat if she had been
born a man she would be King of
But she has a hard enough time of
It to keep her own throne She is
very fond of every kind of sport is
strong minded and smokes strong
cigars Yet she is domestic as she
3liows by occasionally making her
own dresses and she learned medl
ine in order to properly care for one
of her children who was suffering
Troni an Incurable illness Her strong
common sense has saved Portugal
from many a financial and political
crisis and she may be said to be the
real master of Portugal today
