The respective merits of Monarchial and institutions within the last few been much canvassed and practically tested by mankind and it would be blind on the part of advocates of either system to say that much cannot be urged in favour of the We believe that the truest Conservatism would recommend each nation to remain content with its own form of constitutional and loyally to support for it has been clearly proved that freedom and order may well exist under either Any people must ill understand the art of government who cannot with either secure these Monarchy within the present considerably strengthened its claims to acceptance by As long as our ancient British monarchy was the only one under which free constitutional parliamentary government it might have been said that it was an exception to the rule that despotism and monarchy were but since so many monarchies on the Continent have become perfectly free and the advocates of that form of government may appeal to and affirm that the system they support is as compatible with the freedom and happiness of nations as any other that To go to the starting with Holland and may confidently could these states benefit themselves by changing their form of government Turning eastward he may well enquire would such a change be beneficial to the new German although in it there is room for a more complete development of which at an early be effected Could the although they service in unity and freedom of have so completely achieved what the constitutional monarchy of King Victor Emmanuel has so happily Sweden and and even so long and so recently most might be adduced as examples of countries in which freedom and order are more likely to be secured under a monarchy than under a Then there is whose only escape from the despotic and priestly tyranny of on the one and complete anarchy on the is the constitutional sceptre of her gallant young Amadeus of One of the weakest points of monarchy that in Spain and other countries where the principle is held by the majority of the many claimants for the throne and the worst enemies that monarchy has ever had have been the advocates of indefeasible hereditary and who not content with having the must have a particular dynasty or man upon the and who are ever ready to overthrow or conspire against any other If royalists would agree to stand by their principle and firmly support the de facto they would strengthen 1heir own and render it invincible in many countries where it is far from It would be so in France were the monarchists to agree beforehand to accept either or the Comte de or the Comte whichever might be and loyally support him as a constitutional sovereign and it would be so in Spain were the advocates of monarchy to unite around King In his recent speech at Mr. Disraeli has endeavoured to prove from the example of the United States that the expense of republican government is as if not than that of monarchical but he showed that the cost was occasioned by the remuneration to the members of the Federal and State for their services and for mileage allowance just as likely to be made were the chief ofthe Union an Emperor or King instead of a But it certainly would be penny wise and pound foolish in any nation to change a form of Government thoroughly suited to for the sake of saving three or four hundred thousand a The chief objection that can be raised to monarchy that it gives such enormous influence to one All classes look up to and from him a tone is given to the whole social and life of the We know how often that influence has been As as a nation can have such a sovereign as Queen as we may the Prince of Wales will such influence is and is a strong argument in favour of National Bank & Co. & Co.
