The year 1888 was a year of ominouss
unrest in Europe. France was wrest

scandal, which had compelled the abdi
cation of President Grety; with the
conspiracies and agitation of Boulan
eragainst the constitution and with
the beginnings of the unrivaled scan

having driven Alexander from the Bul
garian throne, was protesting against
the election of Ferdinand in his place
and was supposed to be on the point of
a southward eruption which might in
volve all Europe. Italy was struggling
against foredoomed defeat in Abys

oxonths before that time, because of
the invalidism of his father at San
item, Prince William had been much
in the public eye as the representative
of the Prussian and German sover
eignty, and the impression made by
him had been disquieting, if not alarm
The earliest acts of the young em
peror, moreover, gave added color to
the apprehensions. On the very day of
his accession he placed his own mother
under military arrest at the side of her
husband's bier and arbitrarily seized
his father's private papers. His first
address was to the army, that to the
civil public being deferred for several
days. and in it lie employed not the
customary "we" of sovereignty, but
the imperious "I" of autocracy.
Ills very utterances were marked
with self consciousness and self asser
tion and seexed ominous of despotism
at home and embroiuxent abroad.
Then came that era of visit making
activities which partly amazed and
partly alarmed Europe. North and
south, east and west, he called in swift
succession upon his brother sovereigns.
Thcse journeys subsequently resulted
for the good of the empire.
His public utterances maintained
their initial tone of Imperious autoc
racy. "I regard my position as ap
pointed for me by God," he said. "I
have to answer only to God and to my
conscience." "Lex suprema, regis vo
luntas." "Those who do not like my
reign can leave my country." "Those
who oppose me I will dash to pieces."
Nothing was more certain than that
his will would soon clash with that of
the Iron Chancellor. It did. With all
his exaggerated , reverence for the
sovereign and all his boasts that he
was first of all "the king's man," Otto
von Bismarck was not the man to
bow the knee-his own phrase-to the
grandson of his old comrade.
He had indeed foreseen the inevit
able breach. "Prince William," he had
said. "will be his own chancellor." So
came the famous incident of the resig
nation-euphemism for dismissal-of
the man who had created the German
empire. "Dropping the pilot," the
young emperor himself called it. And
then, as if to emphasize the epochal
change which the German ship of state
had suffered, he added, "Full speed

Finally, he has been distinguished by

And, if called, would the relief de
sired be at hand in time through the
proceedings of this convention?
This query may be pertinent:
Why is it that the fiscal agency, at
one of their conferences, suggested
possible aid and comfort to the
State, in connection with this obli
gation of eleven million dollars, and
why has this anticipation of help
been recalled?
It is not expected that bond buy
ers shall, at this time, take 4 per
cent bonds of the State, except at
their own rating, but this declina
tion is simply one of the features of
the trade, charged, at this date, to
the financial stress of the market,
which may not be disputed success
fully, but these bonds are worth
their face value and should be
taken as good, substantial collateral
by the banks of the State as well as
by many of the people who would
invest their idle means in safe se
It would seem the best policy, in
stead of criticisingithe Governor and
in calling for a Constitutional Con
vention, that the 4 per cent bonds
of the State be held strong and de
sirable and be taken by the banks
of the State, which would settle the
credit of the State, which rith its
unhmiited advantages and resources
should be held upwards and beyond
the ieach of reproach.
