Kuropean courts face what Is practically a widespread strike on the part of princesses against matrimony made to order. Individual protests against being made a victim ot tho old system whereby royal children have no volco In the selection ot lite partners are ns old as the system itself, but tho stand now taken, particularly by the princesses, Is said to ni.pear like a concert of action, it Is a blow to tho royal mutch makers, who blame both the scarcity of princesses nnd the growth or feminism Tor the failure of their pot system. In this connection It Is known that many of the royal dowagors are in clined to lay the responsibility for this state of affalis on tho fair shoulders ot Princess Patricia of Connaught, daughter of tho governor general of Canada, who Is said, during her residence In the new world to have acquired certain odious democratic Ideals not all In harmony with her station. The recent birth of a son to the duchess ot Brunswick, the only daughter of Em peror William of Germany, has served to call attention asaln to the small num ber of princesses nnd has given further fore to tho excuse ot the royal bachelors that they nro unable to find suitable partners of their own rank. This excuse may or may not bo entirely valid, but It Is undoubtedly true that both the young men and women of the royal circles show a distinct disinclination toward matri mony made to order. Among the eligible princesses who seem In no hurry to accept (he partners se lected for them by their royal parents are the elder daughters of tho Emperor Nicholas of Russia, notably the Grand Duchess Tatlaim, the boauty ot tho Rus sian Imperial family, and Princess Kllto both ot Roumania. Tho latter Is really a beautiful girl and any debutante might envy her ierfect features, her cloud of lovely hair and her very expressive eyes. Both he and her younger ststor, Princess Marie, have Inherited the wonderful Co burg elegance coupled with the half-gay. half-sad charm ot their native land. But the strike la not confined entirely to feminine sprigs of royalty. It Is oven said that tho Prtnco of Wales, the most eligible of royal' bachelor?, has turned up his nose at the suggestions ot a union with a very high-placed, but extremely unattractive princess.
