Whea ws t-oxaa to deal wltb tba art
of reigning at dona quarter It la ob
viou that aa outalder can aay little
aa to tba details, aaya the London
Spectator. They are naturally kept
a a ktad of trade secret a secret not
etpteaeed la word or written In
tdm. but to be learned rather by ex
ample aad Imitation than by direct
precept Still, a itudy of th method
of kingship dlKloee certain main
principles of action. Conacloualy or
uncor.acloualy. th king "bo are uc
teasful In th art of reigning act on
th text of icrlptur that tell ua "the
xingt hetrt it laaerutaMe." Its
clever king is most careful to heap
big opinions more or lea veiled and
unexpressed. Ha Is aollcltoua that the
naa In the street shall not be able to
say the king takes this or thst side or
wants this or that or believes la this
or that solution. It it far better that
till the absolute need for a decision
cornea the king's view ihould be un
knownthat one man abould say: "I
wonder what the king's view Is"" and
that the other should be able to reply:
"Nobody knows exactly, but, depend
upon It. be won't Jump to any conclu
sion, but will keep a free bead aa long
aa he ran.' The king, la fact, re
mains uncommitted until the time for
action arrives, in this way there is
no leaksge of popularity Each aide,
however vehement, la able to feel:
"It'll be all right In the ead. The
king Is uncommitted end when he sees
how things sre going, or whea he gets
properly Informed, we ahall have him
with ua." Tbua the party or sectional
battle la fought out without the king
getting aplathed with any of the mud
of the arena. Of course. In msny
caaes the time ultimately arrives
when the king hss to tsks a side, or,
rather, to act. We sre ipeaklog not of
strict conttltutlonal monarchies like
England, but of monarchies In which
the sovereign wield direct power
When he doet to, however, the fart
that he haa been up to that moment
uncommitted enables him to break the
fall of the losing side. The king acts,
in fact, like a Judge, aad. like a Judge,
if he Is wise, only gives bis decision oa
tbs points directly before him. Ha
never allows any deviation Into obiter
dicta But though th- king commtta
bimaelf a little aa possible snd guardi
an tnscrutabls besrt In regard to the
thoussnd snd one things over which
hit subjects are battling, be la most
careful to keep hlmeelf cloaely and pre.
claely Informed on all matters that
bars the allghteat concern with the
exercise of hla functlona. There Is no
precept more tskea to besrt by kings
tbsn the precept "Knowledge s
power." Initlnctlvely. kings resllas
that If they are to succeed In the art
of reigning they muat know the true
truth about everything.
